Calculus exam: complete.

My state of mind: complete panic.

There is no way in hell I got above an 80 on that exam. Seeing as there were only 10 problems, and I didn't understand two of them... yeah. I took a wild swing at the first (and got it totally wrong--I didn't even use the right frickin' formula), and sat and stared at the second for the better part of an hour (literally). The problems that I knew, I knew cold, but the ones that I didn't... no chance in hell. Fortunately, my professor's a pretty lenient grader, and she gives partial credit for attempting the problems, so hopefully, I should pass.

Of course, this didn't keep my panic attack away during the exam. My train of thought went from, "What is this derivative supposed to be used for in the first place?" to "Oh, my God, I have no idea what I'm doing," to "I am totally going to fail," to "If I don't get above a 3.0, I'll lose my scholarship." Then I told the little voices in my head to shut the hell up so I could concentrate on failing the damned exam, kthx.

Tomorrow: Shakespeare. Three essays in three hours.

I am so screwed.

FF: Christmas Spirit (1/1)

Title: Christmas Spirit (1/1)

Author: raindroproses

Rating: PG-13
Category: Story

Spoilers: Let's say through "Minimum Security", just to be safe. I don't think there are any major spoilers, though.

Disclaimer: Gibbs, Kate, and Tony belong to DPB, CBS, Paramount, et al. Gibbs' family belongs to me. Well, except for sis, but we've never gotten a name for her. (We don't even know if she is his sister.) "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" belongs to Dr. Seuss. "A Visit From St. Nick" belongs to Clement Clark Moore. "The Muppet Christmas Carol" belongs to Jim Henson Productions.

Author's Notes: Apologies to Aaron Sorkin for blatantly ripping off a line from "The American President". I just loved it so much I had to use it. This fic is dedicated to geeky_goddess79, who so generously has sent me a tape of "Marine Down". This originally started as a ficlet, and grew way out of control. Happy holidays, everyone!

Kate spends Christmas with Gibbs' family, and starts to heal from wounds caused in Christmases past.Collapse )
