What Should We Call Me?

It appears that so far, my hard work has been paying off. I have been working harder than I have ever worked before in order to keep my promise to myself to get a 3.9 this semester. So far, I am on a roll.
Last Tuesday in my Religion class, we had to turn in our first paper. Our assignment was to write about our own experiences with religious diversity (or lack thereof) and relate it to the framework presented by Diana Eck in her book A New Religious America. I love discussing my experiences in this field because I grew up in a really diverse area. This has shaped my own viewpoint of the world, and affects how I view the religious diversity at Concordia. At the beginning of class yesterday, Dr. Koster handed back our papers, and I was anxious to see how I did. I expected to get at least a 90 on it, but I have noticed that sometimes I don’t do as well as I think I did. I received my paper, and was thrilled to see a 100 in the margin.
On Monday in my Spanish class, we took a gigantic test. The test consisted of three parts: fill in the blank, essay, and short answers from a reading. The essay portion itself was worth over 300 points, so I really did not want to screw up on this test. I felt pretty good about my test once I handed it in and left class on Monday. Today, we got the test back, and the professor said to me “muy bien.” I looked at the score, and I got 406 out of 409. Just call me butter, because I am on a roll.
