High Expectations Can be a Bummer.

Catherine wrote her Basic Rudiments music theory exam for the Royal Conservatory of Music here in Canada in August. We just got her results online.

87% and First Class Honours.

We both would have been thrilled with this a couple of years ago but with the higher expectations philosophy that we've been adopting this is sort of disappointing for her. She was shooting for at least 90% and Honours.

Ah well. Without high expectations she may not have gotten the mark she did. Next time.

Congrats on the First Class Honours. Sometimes it's hard not to meet our goals, but the working towards the goals is what makes us who we are.
