Little brag on myself

Alright, I've gotten my homework done for the weekend, yay! I had a paper due today in English that I just finished. Luckily it's just a rough draft cuz I know it wasn't that good and it wasn't as long as it's supposed to be. Hopefully I get some helpful peer reviews so I can make it better. I actually like my English class. I still don't like writing papers, but the class itself is ok. We have weekly online chats to discuss stuff so I feel more prepared and comfortable with it. And the peer review process has really helped. I did better than I expected on my first final draft that I turned in. I got 143/150 which is 95%. Not too bad if I do say so myself. Not that I'm going to roll up a cigar and celebrate just yet. He actually gives us a chance to revise our final drafts after grading and resubmit them, then he takes the higher grade of the two. And since most of my errors with this one were simple grammar fixes I'm going to polish it up and hope to get my grade even higher.

I am still very stressed out with my classes (added onto everything else going on, aka the twin!) but I am happy that so far I have done pretty well in all of them. My grades are all A's so far and I'm going to do my best to keep up the good work. I'm sure I'd be doing even better if I didn't have so much else going on right now and wasn't always so exhausted.
