I just got my first grade back on an analysis paper that I wrote for my College Writing I course. All I can say is that I feel pretty much defeated. I thought that my paper was as close to great as it could get. My professor thought otherwise and she tore it to shreds. I agreed with some of the things that she said, I guess I didn’t realize that it was that bad.
I’ve never received a grade this bad on anything that I’ve written. Ever. I’m used to getting the best grade in the class on writing assignments. I’m used to my teachers complimenting my “tone”
I’m not used to getting poor grades. I feel silly for being so upset about this. It’s a horrible feeling to think that you’re good at something and then to have someone just blatantly tell you that you’re not.
