I might be better at Geometry then I thought!
I got a B on my first Geometry Test!
I know what you are thinking… “But Sean, you strive so hard for A’s, Why the excitement about a B?”
Well thanks for asking! I will be glad to tell you… Me and Math do not have the best relationship. Never have and probably never will. Just as Art comes easy to me, Math just does not. I do not know why, it has just always been that way. But the reason I am happy with this B is a two-part answer.
- I am pumped about this B, because I was sure it was going to be a much lower grade. When I do Math, most times I do get the answers right, but sometimes I second guess myself and see other possible answers when it is a multiple choice and then I over analyze it. This particular test, I just was unsure about a lot of different answers. But I did my best and choose not to second guess myself this time and just turn it in. I guess that’s the ticket.
- I am happy about this B, because I have been trying to appreciate any grades. There have been times in the beginning of Full Sail where I was mad that I got an A! Yes, I even got mad at an A, because it was a low A and not an A+. It sounds so stupid even as I type it, but I am just like that about things. When I choose to do something I give it my all and I expect nothing but perfection from myself. Well I am learning that sometimes that just isn’t going to happen. I can still work with that same work ethic, I just need to except that sometimes I might not know all the answers, or I might make a mistake and that’s ok.
So I am learning to be more excepting of myself in my successes and not so successes. See how I did that? It isn’t a failure, it is just a less successful attempt. 🙂

See! And here you were yesterday worried about how you did on the test! Way to go Sean!
