Can half of a class of 50 end up with a grade of A in a course in university? Under what conditions? What is your opinion?
What have I been up to this past month?
Well, I didn't have decent internet so no new blog posts.
Read some good stuff,
watched a lot of DVDs (including three seasons of Basketball Wives, one season of Amores Perros - yucky genius),
fell in love with Math (Analysis) again,
read a lot of Nigerian blogs and was a tad mean in the comments (not anonymously),
gained some weight and got some pimples (but been drinking water recently to clear out whatever - water works!),
did not finish up the novella I've been writing - one week I'll just do it,
sister got engaged,
many friends (not close friends but still-) died,
brother graduated, ...
As usual, my parents are really interested in my life and 'milestones' - give us a baby, bring a guy home, get a real job - ah yes I interviewed for a 'very real' job and was relieved when the people finally said no for whatever reason. I don't know what I'm doing but it's probably right.
My next goal in life is to get very good internet (but where? how?) and download music: Classical Guitar by Milos Karadaglic, and all the Rufus Wainwright stuff I've missed in the past three years, then maybe try some new music (Carla Bruni?) NaijaPop has some great songs but I need to bathe in new sounds.
So what do you think about grading systems? What fraction of a class should get an A? Who should decide?
