Harrowing week

I'm in the mood to keep this mostly short and sweet. Wow, better mark this day on the calendar.

First the very sad news. We lost Storm, our gerbil, on Saturday. He passed away. Probably from some kind of upper respiratory infection. We just didn't catch it in time. I don't know. I don't want to talk about it too much, I'm still very sad. We love you Storm and we miss you! You will forever be in our hearts.

Then Ryan had surgery yesterday. There are some tales to tell but I'm not really in the mood. So I'll just say that he's fine, thank goodness. He had to spend the night in the hospital because there was so much work to be done for his sinuses and nose, plus he's a medical basket case.

Anyway, maybe I'll rehash a few details from the past few days later at some point. Ryan is doing very well now, which I am thankful for.

OH. And I might get an A in French after all! My average is 89.2%. We have one final thing, we have to put on a skit in French. Yikes.

There is one sucky thing though. I was in college before and I went for this Applied Science degree in Radio and Television. I never finished for a few reasons, but I won't go into that right now. Anyways, the only thing those credits are good for is dragging down my GPA. I had a few B's and one C from those days. They don't count for anything except dragging down my GPA.

I sort of resigned myself to getting a B in French at best. But now with this A (hopefully) it's going to bring my GPA back up to 3.73. Which means........ I just missed graduating magna cum laude. I'm only going to graduate cum laude.

It just really stinks. All the "real" credit hours I have a GPA of 3.9. But those stupid Radio and Television grades are dragging me down. I really hate this. It's so completely unfair. >:-(
