Painfool

Every month there has to be a problem with the internet for me:
March. Our internet application took ages
April. We exceeded the limit by the middle of the month
May. The power sockets or whatever u call them aren't working in a few rooms (thank god my room's not affected), so there's no power supply for the modem. Typing this in the computer lab.

But that's not what hurts me... If i were blogging this at home i'd post the comment that stabs me

The assignment was last minute crap. I realized that i was out of topic on the morning the assignment was due. It was the first assignment i ever handed out late (i had about 400 words more to the minimum word limit 20 minutes before it was due).

Wasn't expecting to do well... and i DIDN'T do well. 23/40 for the assignment. But it really really sucks to read my lecturer's comment:

"Language is akward in parts, need to get someone to proof-read before submitting, otherwise good"

WHAT?? The crappy assignment is good?! And of all things, the shit that brought me down was MY LANGUAGE!?!????!!!!

Oh my godddddddddddd. I wrote 11 pages and 8 pages had grammar corrections! Including my abstract. Oh my god! Oh my god oh my god.

And it really sucks that many of the shit mistakes i made was simple stuff that I COULD HAVE CORRECTED ON MY OWN. Urgggggggggg.

Ahhhh! =( =( =(

Sigh... i guess proof reading and lagnuage is THAT important. The one and only assignment i scored 90% in was the group assignment with DL and DL. We spent 3 hours proof-reading (and arguing over) our assignment in the computer lab.

Sighhhhhhhhhhs.

And at least no marks were deducted for my assg being late. And yeah, i purposely misspelled the title of this post.

Tat does suck, uh? Yeah, I guess they do place more emphasis on language since everyone is expected to be fluent in English. To be honest, I don't think my English is up to par, although I never had problems back home. What do you think? About the std of English in Aus, I mean.

Um... gotta admit that the standards here are much higher than back home. Plus, its a LAW subject. But still, would have preferred losing marks for a bad assignment than losing marks for language...

I think all of us would ultra sucky assignment marks once in a while... How did you do for AFW1300? I only got 14/25... Grr...

sue lin said...
