Scott Hardie | December 7, 2001
All semester long I worked hard for a teacher who was very demanding. I skipped her class many times in the first few weeks, then she told me that if I skipped again, I'd fail, but otherwise I'd get a C. I kept my end of the bargain, and today in a conference she kept hers. Unless I outright skip next week's final exam, I'll get a C in the class, guaranteed. It's not quite worth what I went through to get it, but at least my effort had some reward. It feels good. I love the end of the semester.
