so i know it's not new year's yet but when i checked my grades for the fall semester, i realized how much importance i personally place on my grades. for what it's worth, i got a C in math, an A- in creative writing, a B+ in digital journalism, and a B- in communication ethics. i made an epiphany: my grades don't say anything about my self-worth. my new year's resolution is to realize that i'm still a wonderful person full of unique qualities despite my gpa and despite my grades. truthfully, i wish i learned this earlier because so much stress could have been avoided.
