Report Card... Goodbye Christendom... Oh Well...

Bad news... My parents finally got a look at my grades. I got the usual "Do you really want to return to Christendom?... Its obviously not your thing" speach. I dunno... three B's and three C's is the worst grades I've gotten since first semester of my Sophmore year in High School (I hate french.)

I want to stay at Christendom, you guys are probably the best friends I've ever had.

As much as I hate to admit it though, I really should take my parents seriously. Especially with regards to money. When I came to Christendom I had enough in AT&T stocks to get me through any local school and wasn't planning to stay past sophmore year anyway. If I keep going now I won't have enough money for NOVA (Northern Virginia Community College... Where the 'N' stands for knowledge.)

...Speaking of which. My CSC 201 midterm is today. Wish me luck. (And say some prayers.)

  1. Well Andrew,you might point out to your parents that the reason for your B's and C's is that Christendom is something that actually challanges you. Where as math etc. is something that you are good at. If Christendom really is what you would like to do, then you may want to really try to push for coming back esp. if you consider it the right thing for you to do right now.

  2. What about philosophy?

  3. I have to agree with Quia on this point. It's not the grade that is the most important thing but how much you learn, and what you learn. Math has always been my strongest subject, except when with Dr. Townsend (not that he's a bad teacher but I didn't like his teaching style for Calc.

    However I am saying this without having seen my grades yet. Just try to figure out why you got those grades and try to improve them next year.

  5. arrg... Here I go again...

    Thanks for the support Clair. I might just take a semester or two off anyway though because appearantly people who do tend to do much better when they come back. (Something to do with maturity I suppose.)

    I've been getting all B's in PHIL. I don't seem to test well.

    I don't care much for Dr. T's teaching style either. I got a 3 on the AP physics, it should have been much easier.

  6. No, no, no. I mean, what happened to you being a philosophy major? You're so good at it & you have to come back. Ahhh!

  7. Okay, I didn't really feel like I could comment on this before, because of my future plans & how can I tell someone to stay at Christendom if I'm not planning on it myself. But enough of that. Andrew, you belong somewhere where you can think & contemplate the highest things. Think of Plato & the allegory of the cave. Go for the sun! Also, many Christendom students have some pretty hefty loans, don't feel like you're alone in the money problems. (Hopefully I'm being more articulate than my last few comments.)

  8. And why do you want to go somewhere where they can't even spell knowledge rite! (Note: that was an intentional spellig error.)

  9. I'm really sorry, man. I'm going to miss you. Are you sure it's set in stone? By the way, I have to say that I think you were definitely one of the best in our philosophy class. I really mean that, and I don't say things I don't mean! I tell you, it was the most enjoyable thing just listening to you go at in class. I really don't know what exactly it was, but you definitely knew what you were talking about. I guess it was like watching a cat crouching and pouncing on something. Quite delightful! You have a feel for philosophy and a love for it that I don't have. Try to find a way to come back, even if you do have to leave! We and Lady Philosophy will miss you!

  10. Not to sound selfish, but who would I room with next year if you leave? DON'T DO IT MAN!

  11. Andrew, I wish you could come back with us next semester. However, you should do what's best for yourself. I hope it doesn't come to you leaving.
