Rumor has it that grades are out early...I don't know if I should check them now so I won't be distracted in class, or check them after class for the same reason. The thing is that there are plusses and minuses whether they're good or bad. If they're good, that's swell, but I might feel the pressure to keep them up. If they're not so good, I might be disappointed, but it might take the edge off the pressure to do anything but chug along in the middle of the pack. If they're really bad, it would be a good signal to maybe try something else.
This is pretty sick in a way...I've never been so concerned about grades before in my life. In fact, if I had been, I would have gotten better grades.
