Hate to Fail

I did not exactly fail but I feel like a failure I know I should not feel that way but I do and I need to vent In NEC class so far we have had 6 tests and 1 quiz I got 100 % on all the tests and 10 bonus points for the quiz whichI was the only one in the class who got the bonus points You would think I am getting a pretty good grip on NEC Oh that is National Electric Code, anyhow only 2 people in the class were holding 100% on all the tests Myself and Carl, Now after todays test there is only 1 and it is not me, I watched him grade it and I missed 2, one answer and one code how the hell I missed the answer and got the code is beyond me but I was so upset I forgot about a business seminar that I was signed up for from 1:00 to 3:00, I know I am still doing very well but it has me so down that I missed 100 % on this test I can’t seem to get over it I knew the chapter and studied like crazy i think what I did was focused on 2 trick question and did not pay enough attention to the easy cut and dried questions, maybe trying to find a silver lining I will not be under so much pressure now to keep the 100 % because I already blew it I will still do just fine but I just ask myself why can’t I be the one who gets the 100% through the entire course But I guess you can’t put the toothpaste back into the tube once it is out I just feel shitty. We are on our entrance projects we need to install a meter box, conduit, weatherhead, entrance cable, and panel box and breakers then wire 12 diferent circuits into the box the power it up and they better all work all wihin NEC guidelines
I do not like to drive on bad roads Monday and Tuesday were the pits fortunatly I do have 4X4 so that makes a difference but still I am not comfortable in the slick roads, today was great the roads were dry but it was cold but I don’t mind the cold.
Nothing else new I am off from the 23rd to the 3rd I will be going shopping with Mom on Saturday to finish up my shopping then I am going to stay in to watch the Saturday Steeler game. I migt go visit Dadfor a bit on Sunday however they are calling for a lot of snow Sunday and Monday another fun day on the highway for me
Enjoy Life

  1. I think failure is in the eye of the beholder. You did very well. There isn’t anything anybody can say that will change the way that you feel, however. All I can tell you is that *I* think you did quite well and should be proud. If you can’t be than I’ll be proud of you enough for the both of us, so MEH!!

  2. OMG, I know exactly how you feel. I wanted all 100% when going throught my classes too. I still ended up with the top overall grade in most of my classes but boy oh boy did I beat myself up for the classes I did not get the highest scores for. I guess the best thing I can tell you is that you need to move on and don’t let the small shit get to you. YOU DID GREAT! The most important part is that you learn and don’t give up. YOU have a handle on that for sure. Have a great weekend and great shopping lol. Merry Christmas.


  3. So you’re not #1 in the class. Big deal! You’ll probably not be #1 in several things in your lifetime. Big deal.

    The BIG deal is that you tried. You’re a failure only if you think you’re a failure. Look at being #2 as an opportunity to advance.

    What you described is waaaayyyy beyond my comprehension. I’m just glad I don’t have to do home maintenance. My place would fall apart, and I’d probably be using candles for light.
