College Results

I woke up at eight in the morning, immediately demonstrating my graceful moving skills by hitting my side off the corner of a shelf.  An accidental, but handy, way to ensure I didn’t use the snooze button, though I don’t recommend it.  I hurried unnecessarily fast with a mix of nerves and excitement acting as a caffeine substitute.  Today I got my results from college.

When I arrived there were only two of my classmates there.  I waited as they went in one at a time and I listened as they told me how they did and then it was my turn.  I sat down in a chair, facing two of my lecturers (ex-lecturers).  After some small talk I was given a big brown envelope.  Inside the envelope were my results and several other pages I didn’t care about at the time, recommendations for colleges and stuff, I quickly found my results and the first thing I said was,

‘I only got a pass in quiz radio?’

They were shocked and it turns out it was a mistake, it was meant to be a merit.  They took the sheet and tore it up.  One of them left the room to print out a fixed version and the other stayed and had a chat.  It wasn’t too long before I was handed the correct version of my results.  I finished with an overall distinction (which is the best you can get) and now have a HND in journalism.  I’m really going to miss my class.  I had a really great experience and I hope to keep in touch with them in the future.

What do you think?  Have you kept in touch with many of your college or school friends?  Did you have a good or bad experience in college or school?  Let me know by voting and leaving a comment below.
