Aw, Kristen, don't say that!  Remember the words you sent me--God didn't give us timid little hearts, but fiery hearts of hope!  Things will get better. :hug:

THE BAD: Just got my supervision report for this term's essay work. It had words like "satisfactory" and "adequate" in it which, of course, makes me feel horribly unsatisfactory and inadequate :( and, in turn, makes me question why I'm here at all, if all I can get is "satisfactory" reports.

:( ooh... I know how that feels :-/ :( Bear in mind: the level at which you're working ("satisfactory" work in undergrad at Cambridge is different from "satisfactory" undergrad work at some podunk state school*... yes, I just used the "word" "podunk"... stop staring at me!), other forms of assessment for instance the assessment of the individual essays, and your supervisor's reputation (is he known as a particularly tough grader, fair grader? students are the place to look for this sort of thing; other professors, etc. are not likely to share their real opinion with a student they don't know personally if for no other reason than professionalism).



*erm... your mileage will vary: in the US there's basically a hierarchy to schools: community colleges (1-2 yr. institutions), state schools (such as Georgia State University, etc.), and more specialized schools--i.e. a college that is actually known for something (engineering schools, liberal arts colleges, etc.) I would imagine Cambridge would be in the upper end of that third tier.

Which Washington?  Washington State or DC?  If you're coming to the Emerald City, we should totally meet up! :D

I wish we knew each other better Hailey, you sound sooo amazing.

The BAD: I HATE TEH GETTINGS UP EARLIEHS!!

The GOOD: the kids were fun at least
