my upper back/ neck has been so out of place that i couldn’t sit up straight with my shoulders back. i looked like quasimoto. i just got back from the chiropractor and MAN do i feel so much better. it hurt like the dickens for a little while, but the aftermath is incredible. i have full range-of-motion in my neck again. woo! i knew i was in bad shape, but i didn’t realize how bad until it was all done. it took FOUR tries to get my upper lumbar area (i don’t know the technical term, if there is one) back in the right spot. it had been out so long that it was quite happy where it was.
when you’re living in constant pain, you forget what it feels like NOT to have pain. and i’m finally living in the (almost) pain free zone. at least, when it comes to my upper back/ neck.
sometimes i just cannot figure out professors. i worked my ass off on a paper. she gives me absolutely no feedback and a b+. hey, how about something that tells me what would have made it an ‘a’ paper? something, anything? one comment: good! gee, that was helpful. yes, i’m going to have to ask her what would have gotten a better grade. but how about telling me that on the paper, telling me your thoughts, lady? this is our first paper for the class, everyone reads & grades differently. so how about a clue for next time? if you hadn’t figured out, i’m not a big fan of this prof. i don’t like most of her selections and her class discussions are lacking, to say the least.
i went out on a limb, making connections and comparisons throughout the novel. someone else wrote a straight history and got an a? he basically spit stuff back at you and you give him an a? i put a lot of effort drawing correlations and thinking about the story, and i get a b+? why?
i hate trying to read a professor’s mind. tell us what you’re looking for, some guidelines, something. geez.
