Pansy. :P
Not even my Chemical Engineering class was curved.

I don't know if UND's Chem I or II were curved, but Inorganiic I wasn't, and that was a direct extension of Chem II, to the point they started on topics covered in my Chem I class in community college.

Made me feel much prouder of my accomplishment.

What's a curve?

The only thing similar to that that we do is that there seems to be a quota of Firsts (70% or higher) so if everyone did well you're going to see a lot of people with 69.5% grades and then a gap between them and the 80% people.

Had to sleep in the car last night, car tire go punctured in the middle of butt-fuck-nowhere, and the phone had no battery, tried to change the tire but couldn't see shit, so I decided to camp in the car and wait till the morning.

I'm not too peeved about it though, as my car needed a tire changeout anyway, so I had already saved up for a new set. Also, spacesavers be scary yo...

I would've passed the class, probably with C+ to a B, but I don't think a 20% pass rate looks good. :lol:

too relevant

Captain K saw my premium office. enclosed two desk space with non-blocked windows (!) and door. he scouted it out on the pretense of making small talk with me. a month later, he and Master Sergeant N made it their new office. i am now in a cubicle by the office fridge. that's the pecking order, though. fed > mil > contractor :(

I've been made redundant and I haven't had a reply from that wildlife park ranger job. So as you can guess I am a bit pissed off
