My Rewrite Grade

You may recall my last post where I was whining about receiving “no grade” on a midterm paper that I wrote for one of my graduate school courses.  I was very upset which included crying like a baby.  I plunged myself into a pit of despair and self-pity.   I had the choice to do the assignment again to try to get a grade and preferably a grade that I could be proud of.  I was so stressed out that I could not grasp, in my mind, how to begin rewriting the assignment.   It took me two weeks to get it together enough to start it.  I read a lot of the assigned reading again before going over what it is I learned from it all.  I included everything I could think of as a response to the reading material.  I am happy to report that I got an A (-).  My faith and confidence in myself has now been restored (for now…HA!).  I thanked my professor for being hard on me because it was exactly what I needed.  I now know that I do have it in me to succeed as a graduate student.
