Retina and the Sky

Ahhhhh! Joy, joy, happy, happy! 😁

I’m so happy. Today I got a high distinction (HD) in one of my assignments! My first university assignment of the year. I am so proud of myself. The way I found out kind of ruined everything, because this girl in my class exclaimed to me (after making sure I was “Georgina” πŸ˜›) that I would be very happy with my mark. 😧

“I’m suuureeee you got a high distinction,” she said.
Just for your information, the grades go as follows (descending):

  • High Distinction
  • Distinction
  • Credit
  • Pass
  • Fail

Still, when I actually got the paper with “Grade: HD” on the top, I couldn’t help but grin. πŸ˜„ 😁 I felt really happy. And now I think it’s given me a new kind of motivation to work hard, also boosted my happiness to 500%! (Okay maybe not, but you can’t measure happiness.)

I don’t think I’ve been this proud of an assignment since I got first place in French in the seventh grade, LOL. Apparently it is really hard to get high distinctions in university and you have to get another teacher to approve or agree or something… blah, nothing I care to look into right now. Instead I’ve been looking at postgraduate courses.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, it would be so lovely to get a PhD, though I don’t know if my determination will last that long! I just keep getting reminded of this scene in The Big Bang Theory – Sheldon, Leonard and Raj are all referred to as “Doctor”, except poor Howard, who doesn’t have a PhD and only has a Master’s degree!

But I’ll most likely laugh if all my friends get PhDs, I get a Master’s degree, and end up in that situation.

Aim for the sky. You won’t believe how much more excited I am about study now. Hard work paying off, that’s really something. πŸ˜‰

It’s funny how in the past I never gave a crap about my future, but now it seems crystal clear. Oh man, I see it now, I’ll have a Master’s degree by the time I’m 25 (my PhD if I’m lucky!), I’ll have a good paying job, then I’ll get married and work for several years, and, and…

It would be nice to have children, but I kinda don’t want to think about it yet! πŸ˜› Does anyone think about their future so enthusiastically or am I just crazy? ☺️

I also got to see James today. πŸ™‚ He gave me this ELO record… one more to add to my collection. It was our 27 month anniversary yesterday. And it was my dad’s birthday! β™₯️

Oh hooray, Ryan’s finished the cupcakes for Vicky’s birthday tomorrow. Win! β™₯️ πŸ˜„
