Amused

In high school, I scored big on my math SAT's and was very distraught to see my extra test set was English. I was never a GT English student and barely an honors one. In college, I believe I received a C in my English composition class. That C and the one I received in Economy were my most pitiful college grades. These coupled with the fact that I'm not really an avid reader, nor am I a journaler makes for some amusement, and complete and utter embarrassment when anyone even suggests I'm a good writer. It sort of makes me cringe while I'm giggling. I feel somewhat like I'm pulling the wool over people's eyes - really!! Communication is somewhat of an issue for an introvert like me. I wonder now, if people really do like my writing, if I could actually speak if I were ever able to muster up enough courage to give it a try. Don't even ask!!!

It's surprising to me that you got a C in English comp. You must have brushed up on your skills since school, because *most* people cannot put a sentence together half as well as you do. :-)

This is my brushing. I just think the English prof I had didn't like non-English majors. Or I'm just not a very good writer!! Either way, it's still amusing!!

I had an English teacher in high school that pegged me as a B+ student. No matter what I wrote, he would not give me an A. (I received A's in my other English comp classes, including an A+ on the final exam paper senior year.)

Some teachers are stuck in their own rut. It's unfortunate that their personal issues influence students.

hljbmI think that you are oh so wrong about not being a writer. Someone recently mentioned your blog to me and I have been logging on every morning to read some of your posts. They are wonderful reading! You are a very intelligent woman with lots to share. I am shocked that you dont see yourself as a good writer!
