inhale...exhale...inhale...

Once upon a time there was a girl named Katie. She was very good at chemistry and once even got a 99% on her test for her 111 class. Then along came evil 351 which subtly beat all the chemical happiness right out of her. She thought she knew what she was doing and thought it was fun even, but then when it came time to go off on the magical final quest, she couldn't even slay the NMR dragon who had been tame and easy before. She choked back tears as she thought of her father, the King of O. Chem, and how disappointed he would be when she only got a B- or C+ for her efforts.

Maybe next semester princess.

Not every fairy tale ends in happy endings...Fear not katie! You may have lost the battle, but you will win the war!!!

Ok, any father who is disappointed in his daughter should be forced to sit his bum on top of his proverbial crown.

And any person who cries over a B- or C+ has really got issues and should try failing a course or two to realize that life goes on and that good grades (or education for that matter) do not determine happiness! And that's a scientific fact!

woah there brain...
I just wrote this stupid story to take my mind off of the stress of finals....my dad's an incredible person and he's not really going to be disappointed or disown me or anything, I was just being dramatic...which I do often in my blog, if you haven't noticed.
And, I like getting good grades. In fact, I have never in my life gotten anything below an A-, including the semester when I got a 37% on a math test, so grades are very important to me. And I will cry over them all I want :P

I'm sorry, I hate that feeling!! No, I unceremoniously quit doing that...except a few are still lyrics or titles, but I lately just think of a title that is more to the point than some of the lyrics I used. :) I love the layout, by the way!! Cute picture!

I'm sorry Katie! It'll be okay though. You are freaking genius, and no grade can change that.
I agree with Kylie: "Do not despair." I'll be okay. :)

And Kylie, I'm really sorry you're stuck in the psychical science kingdom... I would come come rescue you Princess Kylie!
