The fine print...

Everyone knows what the fine print is, right?
The fine print that comes up on an infomercial at the end in letters so small you can't read it?
Well, word to the wise: Read them
Ya see, my english project, the one I worked three freaking whole days on, had fine print with it.
The paper was supposed to be eight pages long, no shorter no less. Mine was...twenty pages.
The paper was supposed to be about three different aspects that affect literature now or have. I did that of course, but not in the eight pages. Mine took up twenty, blegh. :p (Although, my paper was rather good, if I do say so myself!)
Anyways, I basically it every point, but the fact of the matter is that I will only get graded on my eight pages. Not my twenty.
So, what does this mean for me?
That I'm going to fail english.
Because this was a major project.
Worth how much?
Five freaking test grades.
Great. Just great.

And if anyone recorded The Ready Set's interview with the Sim group, or if you find it on youtube or somewhere, let me know. Because, sadly, I missed it. :( Stupid afterschool activities! *cough MARCHING BAND cough*

Have a skip-tastic day/night!


  1. That really stinks Skip. :( Just remember that you are smarter than your grades sometimes show.

  2. WTH!Thats just ridiculous!You get graded lower when you worked possibly the hardest in the whole class Argh..Lousy teachers!

  3. I know, it's crazy, isn't it? Oh well...this just goes to show I should read the instructions.
    And thanks, but grades mean everything to me. My GPA is the only thing that's going to get me out of this town and into a place where I can actually...live. And unfortunatly, that is all a college looks at.
    Boooo :p

  4. Awh,well unless your techers are complete idiots,like most.They'll definetly find,your defo collage worthy.
