I just got a philosophy assignment back and I got an A. So, of course, I love that class! I really did love it before I got the A. The A just makes me extremely happy. Yeah!
Really, for me, emotions are too tied up into grades for me. Maybe I need to work on that. The thing wrong with my assignment was that I am too long winded and go on about things for pages instead of the sentences and paragraphs I need. Honestly, I like writing. It’s like people who just talk to hear the sound of their own voice–that is me and writing. I get so excited about words and typing them up . . .
Addition: So I started to go through my assignment, taking the suggestion of my teacher to condense all of my answers to 2-3 sentences. I didn’t do the whole assignment, but most of it, and here are the differences in word count, the original first, the condensed second.
- 147 to 64
- 171 to 43
- 305 to 54
- 105 to 52
- 182 to 71
- 540 to 154
So. All together, I started with 1,450 words and edited it down to 438. I didn’t say everything I said in the first one, but I was answering questions and I used a lot fewer words to answer the same questions.
Good learning experience.
