Grades

For my first semester, I managed a 3.0 GPA. I was really bloody stoked by that. Like, beyond words stoked [Especially when that consisted of an A- in Contracts and a B+ in Torts]. Even my other two grades weren't bad. C in CivPro which still confuses me and a B- in Crim... which I was actually surprised at given that my teacher had issues with my writing. I'm sorry that I use polysyllabic words and write in sentences longer than five words but it's how I write and I've been doing it for a long time. But I digress.

Still, I was THRILLED. Utterly thrilled. Went into this semester feeling good about things and ready to take on the world, as it were.

Then, today, we got our rankings.

100/201.

I now feel like shit. I know I'm an over-achiever, but that's just how I am. I'm a perfectionist. And I KNEW I wasn't going to be in the top 10%, but I had hoped (especially after talking to some of my friends and hearing that we all did roughly the same) that I'd be sitting in the top 30% of the class.

Not... edging into the top half by the fucking skin of my teeth.

Well, assuming the pattern from the June LSAT holds true, I'll have my score by about 3pm-ish tomorrow. Otherwise, the official score release day is Monday. If I have to wait until Monday, I'll go bonkers.

But at the same time -- I don't want my score. I'm afraid I did worse given the bronchitis. And yeah -- I want them and I don't.

*sigh*

Damned if I do... and damned if I don't. Why does what law school you get into have to do SO much with how you scored on a standardized test? I have a 3.6 GPA. I'm not stupid. I just don't test well.

Bah. Is it Friday yet?

Oh thank god for September. Means the start of good TV to watch again. Not that Mad Men isn't fabulous... but it's not Hugh. *g*

And seriously, I needed a good dosage of House today after my utterly, utterly craptastic day. And it really wasn't that bad, but my head is making things worse. Because we all love my head and the complexes I manage to work myself into. I just have finally started to open myself up and I mange to get stomped on. And now I feel like hiding away for the rest of the night. Oi. But I digress.

Highlight for Spoilers: All I have to say is that it was a brilliant way to start off the season. Please, can we have Cuddy wearing something decent for a change. I loved the suit, just not the fact that it was so bloody skin tight. The shutting off of cable/911 call was utter brilliance. I'm sure the H/W shippers were all asquee. *g* Summary of spoiler text: Season Opener rocked hardcore. *g*

Speaking of TV. Picked up Torchwood today and should be here by the weekend, hopefully. And out of curiosity, does anyone remember the show Early Edition?

Also -- please, people you should be watching Raising the Bar on TNT. If anything... dude, it's Zach from Saved by the Bell as a bloody lawyer. That should sell it right there. Plus, you know, Mrs Bradley Whitford is in it. Who could ask for anything more?

Apparently, Almi's telling others (aka- Richard) HER side -- which is incorrect. What's worse is when they believe it.

At least mom straightened him out and he apologised.

All I have to say: I don't mind being held to a higher standard. I mind being held to a lower one.

And while we're on the west wing kick? This is seriously how I feel right about now about the Playhouse.

"Sam, do you think there's any chance that you could be rude to me tomorrow? Tomorrow is Saturday; I will be here. You can call me and be rude by phone or you can stop by and do it in person. 'Cause I think if I have to endure another disappointment today from this place that I have worshipped, I am gonna lose it. So if you could wait until tomorrow, I would appreciate it."
