I got a 55 on the History and Philosophy of Science essay. A C/2:2...it's average. It's not terrible. It's not good.

I'm, obviously, not pleased.

I wasn't meant to write philosophy of science essays. I am going to go be sad now. I really can't write academic essays.

What am I doing here again?

(I got a 60 - a B / 2:1 - on the test from the last day of term last semester. It's pretty reasonable, given the test. I can't even drive myself to care or be pleased, given I had no respect for the teacher and no respect for the test.)

I wish I didn't respect the professors I had for History and Philosophy of Science so much. I really wish I didn't.

Oh honey... *massive hugs*

A 2/2 isn't that bad, and a 2/1 is great! : ) I know you feel crap, we all get that when we don't get the grades we want. Just eat some nutella covered frosties, see if there's any way you can retake them and if so, great, if not you tried your best and thats all that matters.

*more hugs*

Thanks for the hugs!

Nawr, a 2/2 isn't bad...first one I've had on an essay, but really I sortof knew I would get one. I'm not good at writing academic essays about philosophical things. It's too strange a mix of the academic and the flowy-thoughty. Not good for me. I do either creative or scientific. The middle-ground confuses me!

People think I'm really awesome at writing essays. 'tis not the case! Well, English essays sorta. Giggles. I can be good at writing and not formulate the best essays!

As for the 2/1, I'm actually pretty chuffed with that one. It was a TERRIBLE, RIDICULOUS test. So a 2/1 is good enough for me there! Plus I don't care what the professor thinks of me in that course so I don't really care. :P
