Irrational disappointment
big red X
Y'know, when I find myself depressed and upset because my semester's GPA so far was only 3.33 (with one Incomplete uncleared and the "pass" from the pass/fail class "Selected Topics in Space Engineering" not countable towards or against GPA), I think I have to accept that there's something very wrong with my expectations of myself. A-, B, B+ is not a set of low marks, especially in a semester I was struggling to get my assignments finished in.

Anyway, sorry to hear it. :/ Hope you feel better soon, Mr. Situation Assessor.

Your GPA is rational, so of course being upset about it is irrational!

Sorry. :)

Actually, when I read your post, I went back to numerous conversations I had with students during finals week who had aimed high, got Bs or Cs, and weren't exactly happy either. Almost always it was because they were trying to do too many things all at once. And you're right, your grades are not bad by any means.
