Holy Cow..

So… for my first paper for college, I was scared to death. Worried sick that I was going to screw it up. Aric over at A Rage of Squirrels edited my first draft for me, and basically showed me what I should be doing with a paper for college. I fixed this draft, and then I took the second draft in for workshop, everyone had great comments that helped me out and when I got done, I was pretty happy with the paper overall. I was figuring I’d get a C or a B and revise it after I got the teacher’s comments back so I could bring that up to an A.

So… today I got to class.. and there’s my paper up on the screen. The instructors start talking about my paper and show a couple of mistakes… both were practically gushing over this thing and using my paper as an example of what to do… and I about died. They even complimented the title of my paper.

At the end of her speech on my paper one of my instructors said, “While there is some room for improvement, because there is no such thing as a perfect paper, this one was really good. She got an A, which is really hard to do the first time through.”

Ninety-two percent…. on my first college paper ever. I’m still reeling from the shock. I hope I do as well on the one that’s due in two weeks. *fingers crossed*
