I don't think I am cut out for the scholarly life.
I just got my final grade in my History and Popular Culture class. I got an 89.8%, which translates to a B+. Yay me, right?
But 0.2% from an A-? REALLY???
This was a tough term. Not because of the class, that was easy. But because of the logistics involved in taking it. Suffice it to say that many of my assignments suffered due to my inability to properly focus on my school work. I know, it's a poor excuse, and I only have myself to blame. But even so, I worked hard on it. And that research paper, though it had its flaws, was damn good, IMHO. At least good enough to warrant just a couple of points (I got 250/300) to bump me up past that 0.2%.
But, I guess I got what I deserved. Math is an exact science, after all.
The thing about it is, the flaws were mainly in my citations. Because I didn't cite things properly in my bibliography, or in my footnotes. Ugh! I fucking hate that shit! Seriously? I got deducted points because my bibliography entries weren't properly indented? Never mind that the citations are clearly defined, and there is no question where the information came from, and you can clearly verify that I got the information from that source (which, you know, is what citations are for, right?).
At this point, I wish I could just drop out of school. I'm so irritated with academia right now.
