My long luxurious fall break (one day this past Friday) also marked the midterm of the semester. We have a B in German, which is fine. We will work hard to get that up to a B+ or maybe even an A- by the end of the semester. We have a B+ in Biology, and that does not include the second exam or the lab presentation. I think I probably got good marks on the presentation, and I just received my exam grade: 94%, which doesn't totally suck. An A is a possibility, an A- likely. The grades for American Lit/Cultural Studies come at the end of the semester; I have a big project to do for that class (more on that soon). And then piano. It will not be a 4.0 semester, but it will not suck. Here endeth the update.
