Yep, Yep, Yep...

Well, I got an "A" on my speech. Steve (my teacher), was very merciful, that's all I can say. Anyway, the test grade was not as good. I only got a "B" on it. boo-hoo! I should have worked with a partner! Oh, well!! Bygones! Just had to share the good news, to those of you who were wondering.... *cricket!* *cricket!* LOL Okay, so nobody was wondering, except maybe "anonymous", but it's ALLLL good!!!

Lessons in Terror

Well, tonight I had to do my first formally graded speech in class. It was extremely nerve-wracking. I literally wanted to crawl out of the room in the middle, because it was going so, so bad. Anyway, I lived and hopefully I'll pass the class. The teacher did mention that he has almost never given anything less than a "B" on the first graded speech, so that's assuring, I guess. It was a demonstration speech, so I had to keep moving while I was talking, trying to keep track of my speech outline and the time. I guess the best thing was that I didn't go over the allotted time, as did many others in the class. I'll be docked for sheer "horribleness". LOL Anyway, I'm glad it'll all be over in a few short weeks! =D Gimme that "A" and let me go home! JK!!!!! I'll be lucky with a "C" after tonight's episode, but I shall persevere!!! I'm looking at the big picture and "winning" means getting my degree. I'm gonna do it, or at least give it a real honest try. There. I hope that wasn't too bo...ring for whoever left that less than kind comment, anonymously no less! Nighty-night!

I know! It's the saddest little blog on the net, but I just have so many excuses... LOL I have had a very interesting past week and a half. Lots and lots going on. The main event, of course, being the 4th of July, which is always huge around the McCorkle household. We run a fundraising booth and oversee another out at a local park in Redlands. Funnel cakes and tri-tip sandwiches coming out of our ears! lol Anyway, it was a lot of work and really sneaked up on us this year because of Ralphie's medical woes. We were able to pull through, in spite of it all and have a BBQ on top of it all! We had good friends, the Clarks, over for a BBQ and the kids jumped in the bounce house and we stayed up very, very late. Well, almost all of us did anyway, RALPH! He's always the first to fall asleep! We laughed till it hurt and watched the fireworks from the H.S. It was nice and relaxing. I did miss out on our annual tradition of going to the University of Redlands. They really do an awesome show. We were able to see at least 3 separate displays from our vantage point, so it was really, really neat. I love fireworks!! Now, I am working hard on school stuff. I'm feeling really old, too. So, thanks for stopping by, even if I am not as clever as usual! ;0) Night all!
