Getting a low score on a paper that you actually put a lot of work ethic into has to be one of the most upsetting things ever. First you feel like a failure. My hard work was not good enough? Am I truly not smart enough? Why me? Why me? Why didn't I catch that before? Why did that effect my grade? So many questions go through my head. So many emotions. Then I become anger. I put all that effort in for a D? I don't think so. I put all that effort in for an A! I'm pissed. I could have slacked off if I wanted a D. Then failure hits again. Maybe school isn't for me? I should just quit while I'm behind. I should send my teacher a rant why I don't deserve that grade! I don't even know where to begin with an honest rant. A teachers decision is a teachers decision, I don't see how you can change that. Once I get a bad grade it sickens me to even look at the paper again.
When I get a bad grade, I literally feel sick. Like throwing up, let me lay in my bed and sulk in my misery sick. Thanks a lot teach.
