Last week was the end of my first week of exams at college. I currently have five disciplines and my grades were as follows:
Portuguese I – 7.3
Psychology of learning – 8.5
Introduction to english syntax – 9.0
Strategies & techniques of teaching ESL (english as a second language) – 7.6
Text production – 8.0
In Brazil, universities grade from 0 (total failure) to 10 (excellent), where 7 is the least you can have in order to pass the discipline. So, I consider myself pretty good so far. In fact, if you consider the fact that I hadn’t studied a bit for any of them, I was quite surprised by my great good grades. Besides, there’s also the fact that being in college and having to study a lot, was something I was not used to doing since a long time ago.
Anyway, let’s the second round of exams come (in the middle of June). Can’t wait for them!
Speaking of my previous post, well, I still don’t think I belong. Well, let me re-phrase that. I do belong, but I do not blend in. There are already several groups in my classes and I feel isolated. I don’t blend in any of them. I really don’t know what’s wrong with me. It’s not that I don’t talk to people there. I do. But in isolated cases only.
