i got 33.5 points out of 35 for a paper i didn't even feel met the stated requirements of the assignment. plus, it was full of typographical errors!
how am i supposed to have faith in an education system that praises my worst work?!
the worst part, though, is imagining the trash that my classmates probably turned in and for which they all, no doubt, received passing grades.
it's terriby difficult to get motivated about doing well in school when it obviously doesn't matter at all to anyone involved, except me.
