If I were a teacher, I’d never give 100%s.
100% to me seems lazy. Sort of like a completion grade. I just got my grade back on a paper I wrote at 1am because I confused the due dates and didn’t realize that it was due that day. 100%. I sincerely doubt that the paper I threw together in 15 minutes in the middle of the night was 100% what my teacher was looking for. I even forgot to respond to a couple classmates’ papers until 3 days after the responses were due, and that was 1/3 of the grade! So don’t sit there and tell me that my work was perfect when I know it wasn’t. That’s just lazy. (Not that I’m complaining about receiving a high grade.)
If I were a teacher, I’d give out high grades as I saw fit. Maybe someone would get a 98% or something if they turned in a really wonderful paper. And if a student turned in something so phenomenal that it fulfilled absolutely every requirement that I had and perhaps more, if I couldn’t find a single thing to comment on, shouldn’t that paper deserve a couple extra points? I think I’d give it 102% or something. Just to show that I actually read the thing, genuinely enjoyed it, and thought it was amazing. 100% says “I assigned this paper and expect you to take the time out of your full time work and full time school to write it, but I’m not going to take the time to read it (which is significantly less time), so uh, here’s a gold star. Good for you displaying your ability to use Microsoft Word.”
I’m about to kill all but one of my group members for this project.
First, Why is it so hard to respond to my email? ALL I’M ASKING FOR IS “1” or “2” or “3”. Jesus fucking Christ people.
Second, why the fuck does my online class have a GROUP project? Dumbest. Idea. Ever.
Third, thank you Edita for making me feel a little less insane while in this horrible, horrible class.
You know what’s worse than wanting something you don’t have?
Having something you love and leaving it behind. So many depressing things on tumblr. :(
When you don’t have apple juice to drink with your breakfast, apple Smirnoff Ice is a good alternative.
Edit: Apparently this is my 100th post. What a charmer.
I made a new tumblr.
It’s one of those 365 day things. I suppose I could have just posted them on here. But I like to organize things. Apparently that’s one of the characteristics of being a Virgo. Not sure why I’m such a fucking mess, then.
Anyway, all y’all 7 followers should tumble right on over to 365daysofmyboringlife.tumblr.com and follow me there. So far I only have one post. Because it’s only been one day.

On my appearance:
[Describing me to a friend]
Sean: Yeah, Vivian’s about 5’8” and 85 lbs.
[After learning my hair in naturally wavy]
Sean: So, can you curl your hair even though it’s wavy? Because like, when you have a ribbon that’s kind of curly, and you try to curl it, it just gets fucked up.
