Fall quarter at the college is coming to an end. Next week is finals week. Nichole isn't doing all that great. I don't think she's flunking, but I'm only going by what she tells me. Now she's always had trouble in school, always had to work 2-3x's harder than her sibs just to pull C's. So it's not like I expected her to be pulling A's in her classes. What makes me want to smack her is that she rarely spent time studying, most especially the biology, her hardest course. I kept telling her she HAD to study the material. She has the same professor I had, and he's easy, IF you study the material. I think she thought it wasn't going to be any harder than hs and by the time she realized it was nothing like hs she was so far behind she's having trouble catching up. She's mad at me because I won't let her drop her classes since she's decided to change tracks. lol I told her she needs to knuckle down this week and actually STUDY. And the girl knows I'll sit down and help her. She still has a chance of passing biology with a really good grade. If the professor knows you're trying he'll bend over backward to give you a really good grade. But he won't just hand it to you. You know, last year I'd get so frustrated with the young kids in my classes for this sort of thing. They'd whine about how hard everything was, but when you pinned them to the wall it was always because they didn't study. And now I have one in my house. lol I hope this quarter has been an eye opener for her.
