Grades: Midterms

I finally got a 100% on one assignment I kept getting C’s and B’s on, which should make me extremely happy right? Yes but I still do not have an A in History. Im hoping I will eventually get an A by the end of this semester. And as for English…vague teachers will be the demise of me. But because teachers are like that; I will work as hard as I can to get the 3.8. I believe I am on the right path.

School

Do you ever feel like your not good enough? Or if you work hard and you do not see the results you deserve? That’s me. It truly astonishes me how people who do less work then me and do not pay attention in class get higher grades than me. That’s how it has ALWAYS been! I keep thinking of way I could possible fix this issue; maybe to go to tutoring or just taking a “chill pill”. Usually that helps but I still do not get the A’s that I believe I deserve. Which irritates me that our educational system categorizes students strengths based on an A or B….people do not think B-E-Y-O-N-D the letter grade.

I guess I just have to figure out better ways to get those A’s. I am determined to get that 3.8 

Pt. 2 - College

Xavier University in Louisiana; cannot believe I actually came to this school but I am making it through. But its hard to sleep at night because I just want to be home. Am I really homesick? Either way I am trying to focus on my application for USC. Hoping, Praying, Wishing everyday that I am being led down the right path to going their. In reality I only see myself their, and happy their. But it all comes down to GRADES. Which I am working hard on… I have nothing else to do but work hard. I have no social life. I almost have that 3.8. But in the back of my mind there is always the thought…what if I do not get that 3.8 (as feasible as it may be) will I still have a chance at USC. I guess there is no rest until I get to USC. 

While you have me

your confusing, you dont lie you dont cheat you dont make promises you cant keep …except me

if all this time you KNEW you were going to just end up saying move on then why even start? Get underneath my skin and make me feel this way …and than pull away

And yet, you still tell me the same things , continue the same damn pattern…my friends make me think there was just something wrong with you but maybe its me also repeating the same pattern , yet I TRY and erase it but you make it difficult. i wanna stop talking to you and hope that you dont find another like me because i truely think you wont , maybe you just dont realize it yet but i do and i think its about damn time for you to recognize that i love you and dont want to get hurt or see you hurt but your hurting me cant you just realize that im not gonna be here for you forever. Take me while you can. being positive doesnt always get you through the tough times but maybe for you it does but not me. if you want me now …take the chance and stop fucking with my emotions.
