an A- on Anthr 260, I'm disappointed

I received an A- on Anthr 260 and am disappointed by it. I have tried very hard on this course, finishing all requirements and doing the extra credit assignment. Although in the beginning of the semester, I dare not expect an A-, after time went on, I believed I would do well. Anyway, it is over. I also expect an A on Environment 111, but now I am starting to doubt.

After the last exam finished, I spent several days to read Chinese novels. Those novels are really interesting and fun. I enjoyed them every much. However, I cannot spend too much time on it because there are many things I have to do. It is also the good time for me practicing calligraphy. I usually have no time to do this during the study season. This week, I am posting my calligraphy on a website and enjoying reading commons from strangers. This is the address, www.freehead.com. I use both brush and pen to write. Some people are kind that they offer frank commons, although many people praise their friends only.

I want to find a job this winter to help our family expense. Because winter break is merely one month, it makes me even more difficult to find a right job. I call a few friends who are my ex-coworkers in Chinese supermarket. The job in Chinese supermarket is tough; particularly during the holiday seasons, not only Christmas and New York, but also Chinese New York at the end of the coming January. The pay barely meets the minimum salary of New York State, $7.15 per/hour. Nevertheless, having a job and earning money back home are essential, regardless of how tough the conditions are.
