Afraid to open the results of something?
I got the email containing my grade of my final paper for an important 300 level major class, and I couldn’t bear to open it for a full twelve hours or so! It’s like I need time to prepare myself.

I do the same thing. Something about not knowing… or I get so nervous.
Fingers crossed for you!

I’m sure you did great…let us know how it goes!

I usually take the band-aid approach—just rip it off! Or, open in the case of email 🙂

I got a 90% on the paper… not too bad, but I was hoping for a little higher! My text book was trashed last week when our apartment flooded, so studying for the final test has been rather difficult.

90% is still great! That is still a 4.0 (at least it was at my universtiy’s grading scale).

It’s a 3.7 on ours. :/
I still have the final to make up for it though, I’m just hoping I remember enough of the reading that I did! I’m frantically going over my notes and everything, but I usually read through the book again.

I do feel like that, but I also HATE not knowing something, so I have to rip into it immediately! When I got my bar exam results back, I ended up finding out from a friend’s text message before I pulled open the online results page. It was a relief finding out I passed, but I honestly kind of missed the rush of looking to see if my name appeared on the list! Is that sick or what?

I do this all the time. I always say that in my head that i did really bad so if I open it and its bad but not as bad as I thought then I’m like oh hey its not that bad. LOL

LMAO! I do this with my bank account online. I just did it yesterday, and I swear to you, I peeked out from behind my fingers at the screen, just hoping and praying that I still had some money in there.

@honeybun: you sound like me! I do it with my account, too. I try to mentally add up how much I have before clicking through, and then I subtract about $50 for “forgotten things” so that hopefully I’ll have a pleasant surprise.
Like when I opened the e-mail with my paper grade, I told myself, “Okay, as long as it’s a B I’ll be okay… that’s all I’m hoping for” but then when it was a 90% I was still disappointed… lol!
