An "ahh, spring break" haul


I was having a good day. And then I got an email from a former RA who expected "at least an A or A-" when I gave her a B+.

Seriously, kids. Chin up. Have some dignity. Don't complain about a B+. There are worse things in life. Like the grade I wanted to give her. :P

That response email is going to take me at least half an hour to compose and I'm not looking forward to it. But at least I have new pretties to lessen the pain.

From Walgreens:

SH Disc. It's in the same collection as Opulent Cloud and I've picked it up and gazed at it wistfully at least 5 times in the last two months. So I bought it; I can always return it. :)

WnW Sunny Side Up and Tickled Pink. Cute and creme, why not?

From Ross Dress for Less:
Color Club Electrocandy

Color Club Pardon My French

Color Club Poptastic

I had some store credit so these three CC sets came out to be $12 (they are $8 each). Ross can be real hit or miss but it was definitely a hit today! I wonder why these are already in Ross; usually, they lag a season or two. Not that I'm questioning my luck at all. :) (They also had Rebel Deb today but I already got that from Color Club to review; I don't think I was going to get the other two so I went ahead and bought them for myself...)

That makes six Color Club sets that I've gotten from Ross this year: Haute Browns, Musique, Glitter Vixen, Poptastic, Electrocandy and Pardon My French. Not bad, not bad at all...

Hey, girl. What you are doing? I always avoid Ross because I didn't know that they care polishes. Now I will spend more time on shopping trying to catch CC in Ross. LOL

WOW ROSS? WILL BE ON THE SEARCH FROM NOW ON!

My Ross never has good sets like these.

Oh man, the grading complaints are the worst. The undergraduate school here has a mandatory curve (although, it's a pretty ridiculous curve, more like a slump), so the easiest response is just to tell them that that's where they fell in relation to their classmates and there's nothing I can do about it. I also try to grade the exams very harshly... nobody complains when their grade gets curved up, but try to curve down and there will be hell to pay.

Those CC polishes look awesome. (Every day you sway me to the dark side, Flinty.)

P.S. I am very stressed about grading right now.

Man oh man i wish new england had Ross stores...all those CCs i could buy in person...

and as an undergrad, i hate when students and fellow classmates complain about getting grades they don't feel they should have gotten. i mean come on, you can't always expect your prof. to throw you a bone, you get out of a class what you put in it, and that includes your grades.

Nice score!

@Gerry: Well put. (And you have wicked nails!)

I was just looking at Sunny Side Up today in the store. I'll be looking forward to a swatch so maybe I can go back and get it. I'll have to get my butt over to Ross then if they sell CC sets!
