Messages to self & student

To student:

1. An A- is not a "harsh" grade.
2. Indicating that you've read my "opinion" about your grade but do not agree with it--in other words, challenging a grade by implying that your opinion and my professional judgment have equal weight--does not require me to change the grade, even if you have rendered this disagreement in respectful, if overly familiar (HEY UNDINE) terms.

To self:

The great lesson of adulthood is that you don't have to like everything you do. You just have to do it.
