current state of mind: blissful
If what you know is who you are
Then she's everything
You don't need an education
To know what class that you're in

Grrrr. I was sure that my exam grade for Torts would be posted online by now. I sent an email to my instructor and he said he is not quite finished grading them all. Once he is finished, he will post the scores on our accounts. I hate waiting. The sooner I find out how I scored, the sooner I know how much harder I have to study next go around. I will be so disappointed if I am not one of the top grades. Seriously, this is not me being “hard on myself”. My class is full of eejits. 75% of the peeps in there better have a back-up plan, because Law is not their forte. Two classmates, in particular, really should find employment which doesn’t require literacy based on their comments in class.
My impatience in waiting for my score brings about the realization that I am rather impatient in general. With children, I have all the patience in the world. I seldom raise my voice or get frustrated with them. All other aspects of my life, I am definitely a seeker of instant gratification. You know the “Marshmallow Test” where the kids are put in a room with a marshmallow and told if they can wait a specific amount of time, then they will get two marshmallows to eat instead of one? Well, I am the kid who would have already eaten the marshmallow before they could have explained the rules. I do not like to wait for good things to happen. In fact, I don’t like to wait if I know a bad thing is going to happen either. Waiting is not one of my strengths.
Recently, I was told that I need to learn a valuable lesson in patience. I disagree. Life is short and I don’t want to miss any aspect of it. Those of you who seek to torture me by making me wait for gratification will soon realize that I am a slow learner at this game. You may as well just give up teaching me and allow me to have my way sooner, rather than later. Everyone will be happier – meaning I will be happier.
