I have to give a great big YIPPEEEEE!
I got my TMA 03 results today, and I got a really respectable 72% - something I hadn't expected considering the state of my health (and my memory) recently!
My lovely tutor gave me some encouraging words of advice as well - something that I hope to use in the next TMA, which also deals with poetry. All I need now is to get a bit better so I can concentrate a bit more on my study.
Talking of getting better, I saw my Rhuematology Consultant last tuesday, and he is arranging an operation that he hopes will ease this horrible Carpal Tunnel Syndrome that I'm suffering with. He did warn me that it may not work though, as my Fibromyalgia is also in my arms and hands, so some of the pain I get is from that as well - I don't mind if it eases it a bit, as some relief is better than none!
On a note of light relief, one of my fellow students put a link online to see if you are a geek, nerd or dork - I did the test (as you do!), and my results were:
56% Nerd, 13% Geek & 60% Dork!
And this is the explaination I was given:
A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.
A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.
A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.
You scored better than half in Nerd and Dork, earning you the coveted title of:
The classic, "80's" nerd, you are what most people think of when they think "nerd," largely due to 80's movies like Revenge of the Nerds and TV shows like Head of the Class.
You're exceptionally bright and smart, and partly because of that have never quite fit in with your peers or social groups. Perhaps you've realized, or will someday, that it is possible to retain all of the things that you like about being brilliant and still make peace with the social cliques around you. Or maybe you won't--it's really not necessary.
As the brothers of Lambda Lambda Lambda discovered, you're fine just the way you are and can take pride in that. I mean, who wants to be like Ogre, right!?
