Blerghing B


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 !

  1. Maybe you should ask the instructor what it would take to get an A. 😉
