How do I get over


Chinatown Wars

Recommended Posts

Chinatown Wars

So a couple days ago, we had to write a report about the book we read (1000 word minimum). I decided to do it- the da errr night before the due date. I completely knew that I was going to bomb it due to me being in a rush and knowing that most of my sentences were either quickly written or even false. On Thursday we got the paper back and I was expecting to kill myself, but BOOM, I get 100% on it. Now I can't stop thinking why the f*ck did I get this grade, I don't think I deserve it. This has also happened with me on a couple other assignments too. I still feel like I shouldn't have gotten the grade and I'm completely torn apart by it, even though I aced it. I hate this feeling and I want to know what to do to get rid of it. I also need to mention that most people failed it so she went over what was meant to be in it and almost nothing that she said was in my report.

Be proud you idiot. This is just as useless as the guilt thread. You were wrong in the first place to procrastinate, but hey you got lucky. Don't procrastinate again but seriously don't ever feel guilty of this ever again.

It's called grade inflation, your teacher is probably lazy. The American education system has many problems, this is one.

Sounds like the teacher wants to f*ck you.

 

Seriously though, good for you! If you're smart enough to get the grades (or luck enough on the level of lottery winners) to get 100% without any prep then enjoy it! I'm personally the kind of person who hardly ever revises and still delivers results on exams etc. simply through memory. If anyone else can do that then you should be happy that academic stuff is easy for you - if you're lucky be glad you got something out of it.

That was my thought too. Lazy teacher grading papers after 3 glasses of wine while watching House or something.

Its not hard to bullsh*t a project or homework together. I once wrote a 17 page report on WWII, and the effect of the Volkswagen Beetle on the economy of Germany. I got a 97%, the highest in the class. I did little research, bullsh*tted the length, made it sound smarter than it actually was, and accomplished this in a matter of 3 days on and off when I actually had months to do it.

You got lucky. You must have been fortunate enough to get the last minute burst of inspiration. Sometimes you get it and sometimes you don't, it's as predictable as a dice roll. Don't count on it every time though; there's "works well under pressure" and then there's "gets lucky with last minute work every now and then".

 

An issue I have though is if your teacher just gives out 100% on essays, just seems like a lazy way of marking and they should just use A, B, C etc. rather than percentages.

That's nothing. In college I got a 75 on an assignment I didn't even do. My buddy nearly punched me in the head because he only got a 70 on it.

That must be it.

Because on 7th grade i was supposed to do a big project in science and i put random stuff because i forgot to do it and in the end i got a A/96%

and on 8th grade in History all she does is give us note and if i don't do a Notes for a whole chapter i still have the same grade.

she checks our folders every 2 months and one time i forgot to give it to her(it counts as a quiz grade) and i still had the same grade...

You're still in school, where grades mean squat really. Heck, even in college it's like that. I've had a couple of good grades without doing much, compared to classmates who worked their asses off and got lesse grades. You just don't really have to work hard to get good grades, you have to work smart. It's not about what you know, but what you can do with what you know.

I got a 77 on a science project I worked on the night before it was due. It was absolute crap, had several spelling mistakes, and was written in purple marker. On top of that, I never did the experiment and completely bullsh*tted the results. Another kid who put in weeks of effort into his got a 67. What's the problem?

I've had to teach a few courses at uni, and I'll let you in on a little secret. You know how you often do the assignments at the last possible moment, hurrying through and doing it halfassed? Well, instructors do it to when we are grading these papers. If you get 100% on a paper that honestly didn't deserve it, the teacher was grading your paper the same way you were writing it.

 

How do you get over it? You don't. People around you are just as half-competent as you are. That's a terrifying thought, I know, but you carry on, and hope that none of these people have to handle your open-heart surgery.

Prior to filing a bug against any of my code, please consider this response to common concerns.

If no-ones advice helps the guilty feeling will go away soon, it just disappears.

Grades don't matter till your end of year 12 (in Aus) or college tests.

I get you. I write slop for my English courses and get great grades. I know it's slop, I call it slop, but people just think I'm being a cocky dumbf*ck when they see the grades.

Heh sounds like a lazy teacher. My school had a similar thing.

 

We each did research papers that had to be at least 25 pages last year. I swear to God my teacher just weighed the papers and he would give a grade depending on the weight. I should've sold ad space in that paper instead of writing something competent. confused.gif

Well to be fair in English all the stuff you write is bullsh*t anyway, you just have to write a lot, use big words to try show something, because as my ENglish teacher always told me "in English there is no right or wrong answers"

That ain't nothin.

 

In one class in my freshman year of high school I had to draw this elaborate picture by hand. I drew literally 4 out of about 50 lines. In the end I got an 85. Oh yeah, this was the final exam.

 

And I spent the entire semester playing Halo Combat Evolved on the computer. LAN mathces ftw.

Well everyone I know at University do what you do, including myself, write your assignment in the last night and hope for the best.

 

 

You should be happy man not sad, if that happened to one of my friends we would be laughing until the next assignement comes and talk about how f*cked we are. Then we hand them in, get decent grades and laugh again until.....will you get the picture tounge.gif

If the question says "In your opinion" then there is no yes/no answer.You just have to elaborate on your opinion.

True a lot of the time. Doesn't mean there aren't good answers and sh*te answers though.

So you did a bullsh*t report at the last minuite, you were preparing to kiill yourself because you would feel so bad about getting a low grade, you get a high grade, you still feel really bad. I see only one option for you: Kill your self! But seriously, say nothing, you got the grade didn't you? BE HAPPY!

leik oh em jeez!

Your last name starts with a letter that's later in the alphabet, so by the time your teacher gets to your paper, he/she just skims over it to make sure it isn't about dildos and gives you a 100?

Your teacher must have mistaken you willingly sucking his cock for wanting a better grade on the next assignment. It's alright, it happens.
