I think I have been getting a little cocky about my schooling. Here I am, totally doing all my reading before class, understanding if not everything..enough to allow me to participate in class, feeling like I am writing kick-butt arguments and papers...and then, I get a blow to the head.
Don't you hate when you turn in a paper and then the teacher explains in class what the paper was supposed to be about and you realize that your paper didn't reflect an ounce of what was discussed? Yeah, me too...totally don't dig that my cockiness took a jab in a major way. That'll teach me!!
