I got my first mark on a major project today – a blerghing B ! ARGH. Not happy about that at all. I recognize that in the grand scheme of things, my marks will not stop the world from turning and world peace does not hinge on my academics but damn it I wanted an A ! I did get an A+ on a smaller thing but that’s writing and pretty good at that. I’d have to be a freaking idiot to muck that up considering how much I write. This had some subjective aspects to it and I dislike that intensely.
Subjective is defined as: Based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions. So basically it comes down to whether the instructor liked it or not. Not whether I met the criteria. She did make one valid point but grrrrrr – that keeps me from my A !
