My grades have been posted to the GRCC website. As expected, I did well in both of the HVAC classes I took this semester. Though I don’t feel like I got as much out of either of them as I would have liked. That’s partially my fault; I didn’t do much of the assigned reading. That is one of the problems with taking classes in things you’ve been doing for 20+ years, you tend to take it a little bit for granted that you’ll be able to pick it up with minimal effort. Fortunately, My calculated gamble in Philosophy played out as I thought it would. I feel bad that I skipped out on the final paper, and the 40-points would have been very nice, but I still ended up with a B. So here is that official grades.

I’m going to take advantage of the winter break to take a little vacation, celebrate some holidays, and relax for a few weeks before getting back to it in January.

Tonight was my last night of classes for the Fall 2018 semester. I was pretty disappointed with the whole semester. Philosophy was interesting, but one of my HVAC classes covered stuff I don’t do and the other covered stuff things I’ve been doing forever. So my grades should be good, but I’m glad to be done. I already touched on my philosophy paper, or lack of same. Neither of my HVAC classes had a real final and they were both very informal, so I don’t really know where I stand in the grade book.

Four nights a week is a lot. I’m looking forward to the winter semester and only having class on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Two days a week is going to feel like a vacation.

Now that I’ve put that behind me, it’s time to get ready for Christmas and our trip to Florida.
