Today, I got feedback on an essay I wrote, by my mum who is also a teacher. She said it was 'worse than most of her pupils'. She teaches 10-year-olds. I'm a 20-year-old student at university. FML

it was obvs. an exaggeration. come on now if your in college you probably wrote essays to the places you applied. u wldnt have gotten accepted if they though you wrote like a 5th grader.

You just got schooled by a bunch of 10 year olds xD

agreed. almost every primary school teacher I've had experience with is merely a babysitter. I went back and saw mine after graduating from highschool and could only hold and intelligent conversation with one of them.

You clearly are no better than a ten-year-old while writing essays. Your mother was speaking the truth. Let it go, OP, let it go.

Maybe you aren't stupid, maybe those were just REALLY smart 10 year olds!

That's a fail name. You had to do caps and add numbers. >_>. And I found his comment funny.

can't be that bad if ur in a university and talking successful courses..

It's not necessarily the end of the world. If there's room for improvement, you could ask your mom what you could do differently to not suck more than a 10-year-old. I think you should take it as constructive criticism, and not take it as so much of an insult. Though, I have to admit, that must be insulting. Practice makes nearly perfect. :3

Well OP, I recommend you switch your major to Computer Science (No essay writing there), unless of course you are already in Computer Science...
