results of the exam, and rocky the fish

Guess what! I got 73/70 on my biology exam! I was freaking out about it and studied like crazy, but I guess it paid off. Mrs. Kelly, my teacher, was very kind and gave us the chance to earn up to 5 points of extra credit if we typed up the answers to the study guide. I missed 2 questions, but because of the extra credit, I still got more than 100%! I was so excited, and as my reward to myself (not really, I just made that up as a kind of excuse =) ) I bought a beautiful male Betta fish! And, yep, you guessed it, I named him Rocky. It was between 3 other names too, though, and those were Sam (after Sam in Lord of the Rings), Jack (after Jack Kelly in Newsies), and Victor (after Victor in The Terminal). And of coarse, I named him Rocky after Rocky Balboa. =D

Great job on the exam, Kate! I can't believe you are taking classes like you are... you are becoming so mature and old and everything. Wow. Love you and miss you!

I don't think I've ever given you a very good CONGRATULATIONS! on the exam yet – so CONGRATULATIONSCONGRATULATIONSCONGRATULATIONS! 103%! Excellente! And here's 'Congratulations' in Prince Caspian's voice. 'Congradyulasions.' Heh – that's not a very good transliteration but...if you remember how he says it, it kind of sounds like what I wrote. Kind of. Well, congratulations again!
