After reading this article, I feel vindicated: A’s for Good Behavior.
Here I am, with graduate-level degrees, but a poor pre-college grade record, and why? I had poor handwriting, and hardly ever completed my homework. I did well enough on the tests to get by, but I was given poor marks for not showing every step along the way in the tedious tedium that was grade school math homework. There were a few terms where I was denied being on the Honor Roll for poor penmanship grades—everyone knows that genius is illegible.
There was a point in high school where I just gave up pushing for high grades because of these arbitrary roadblocks. I’m glad there’s the recognition to make them die in a fire.
Instead of doing productive things, like updating this blog, I’ve been leveling up more alts on WoW.
My most recent feat has been to quest/dungeon grind up to the point where I have a character in each class at level 70 or above. Most of which are on my main server, Azjol-Nerub. Only 2 aren’t 80 by now, and probably won’t be by the time Cataclysm hits the shelves. But then, I’m an efficient quester when I put my mind to it.
As always, World o’ Warcraft has been my main timesink. As you may know, the next expansion is about to hit, and the few active remaining guildies and I have been trying to complete some missing achievements before the Cataclysm strikes.
We have had to go to the extraordinary measures of pugging in people from trade chat for Yogg+1, which has had poor results. This is why I hate pugging. Azjol-Nerub’s Horde side has slim pickings from available puggers, but I’m going to stick with the server. I will be persistent.
