I got a 87.5% on my paper, btw.
And in reality I'm sure this is a good mark for a graduate course but I worked really hard on my paper. I mean really really hard. I spent days reading extra material that I could incorporate into the paper. I'm talking an extra 20 articles (30-50 pages in length). I sacrifice sleep and work and time with my husband so that I can solely focus on school. I dream about my research and wake up thinking about it. And the reality is, I love writing!
I had my mind set on a 90%. And I knew I wouldn't be happy with anything less.
So this 2.5% has made me think that maybe I'm not cut out for this. Maybe it's time to start having babies...that would be easier (ha - joking!)
Okay pity party over!!
