A Digital Camera! Whoot whoot!
I didn't make out too badly, but I didn't get some things I really wanted, like the new Mortal Kombat, or any other video game for that matter...
For Christmas Eve, however, I got my grades from Emmanuel...
Religion: Search for Meaning - F (No surprise)
United States History to 1877 - C (Expected at least a B-, but whatever)
Life on Earth - D+ (Expected a C or better)
Curriculum Development - B- (Basically what I expected)
And I forgot to go to the Sophomore Career Planning Seminar, so I got an F for that...
My GPA is a 1.50, which is in between a D+ and a C-...the problem is, I'm now on Academic Probation because I didn't score above 2.00. This means that if I don't pull my GPA above 2.00 by the end of next semester I'm OUT. Gone, kicked out of Emmanuel. My mother told me bluntly, albeit understandingly, that if I get kicked out of Emmanuel that's it for me, they won't pay for another school.
That scares me. It really does, I am so nervous because if I don't get a degree what am I going to do? Work at a child care center for nine bucks an hour? Definitely can't even eke out a living that way...
Scared Straight? Damn straight!
