Are You Being Real?

The first semester ends next Friday, January 25th, upon the completion of exams.  It is an excellent time for some reflection: Are you satisfied with your grade? Are you satisfied with your effort? When you look in the mirror, can you tell yourself honestly that you have done everything within your power to be successful?

In many ways, the second semester can be YOUR fresh start.  Your performance and grade in the first semester do not define your performance and grade in the second semester, unless you decide that is the case.  No matter what position you are in now, you can have a successful second semester and pass your math course.  But you have to choose to do so.
