Can I just rant for a little bit please?

i am so mad right now.  i woke up and remembered that i have a rhetorical analysis to work on. i'm currently taking english 2020, and can i just say how much i hate that class. the teacher is great and all, but the course is boring. to top it off i hate writing.  i'm not a writer and that's exactly why i'm not majoring in english. the rhetorical analysis was due in september which of course i did it.  because i'm not a writer it took me 4 hours to do the assingment.  yes, 4 hours for a 3 1/2 paged paper. i know, i'm slow. my teacher doesn't really grade on a scale, but instead believes in pass or fail type of grading. you either get a pass or a fail written on your paper. i got my paper back a couple of weeks ago only to see that it had a big fat "fail" on it.  i've never failed an assignment in my life. this is the first time i get an F. for all those who are on the same boat as me you know what it feels like, right?  nobody likes to fail. i didn't feel that bad because it turns out that the majority of the class failed the assignment. about three or five people passed. it isn't right. if the vast majority of the class is failing, shouldn't this tell the teacher something.  obviously i feel like he either is grading too hard or he didn't explain the assignment good enough.  i'm gonna go with... both. fortunately he is giving us the opportunity to redo the paper. but i'm still angry. it took me 4 hours to do that awful thing, and now i have to do it again because it just wasn't good enough??? HELLO!!  i'm not an english major and don't plan on being one, i'm going into nursing!

UGH!!!!!!!!!!! I think i better go use this energy on cleaning, that should calm me down.

have you ever failed an assignment???


  1. Ranting is totally okay :) What else is a blog for really?! haha

  2. Welcome to our club! :) I didn't feel so bad that I failed it when I learned that most the class failed it. I asked him today if he had them graded yet and, of course, he hasn't. I wanted to say, "Dude, it's been a month. We're expected to get our papers to you in a timely fashion, I would like the same respect from you!" But then he would probably fail me again so I kept my mouth shut. :)

  3. @Sam I know seriously! Grading takes him forever. I just hope I passed this second time around.
