Well, I just got two more marks back. As you might remember, I got a 55 on my Sustainable Tourism essay (got that grade back in December). That is equivilant to a C in the states, and I thought that was quite fair, as I didn't really feel that I got into things as in-depth as I should/could have, but honestly, I wasn't too interested in putting much more effort into it. Today, I got informed that I got a 48 on my Politics and Policy (fair enough). What really surprised me was that I got a 53 in International Tourism and Globalization. I expected at least something in the 60s; felt I did B level work on that for sure. I even went and interviewed someone for the organization I did my presentation on. I'm tempted to just be really hacked off about it, but that grade is unmoderated (which means it could change) and I haven't seen the feedback on it. Well, I'm ticked anyway to be honest.
On top of that, my laptop is seriously acting up and I can do no work at home. Hopefully that will be rectified soon, as I'm not a fan of working in the library. Then again, if I am going to get crap grades, why worry!
Ok, enough ranting. Have plenty of very good stuff going on as well. Had a fantastic weekend in London and an upcoming trip to Amsterdam to look forward to:)
Back to essay writing...
modified to add: random useless info, but i think it's interesting. One of my classmates asked if Chapter 11 was named so because of 9/11, during a discussion we were having about why so many US airlines have gone into bankruptcy.
Oh, and I found out the 53 in ITG was due to the fact that although I had one of the best reports in the class, I had one of the worst presentations. Honestly, I know my presentation skills can be kind of shaky, but I thought the info was good and had a lot of fun working on it. Oh well, forget them! Where's the smiley with his pants down when I need it;)
