I received back a feature article my professor reviewed today. It was about the wind tunnel and the first third of it was regarding my experience in the wind tunnel. He said it was he best writing I had done so far.
Hearing this was a bit of a confidence boost. My professor – whether he’s preparing us for the real world or is just brutally blunt – has ability to drain all the life out of someone using just a bit of red ink and rude language.
Funny enough most of the paper was something I copied off one of my blog entries. Therefore, I did learn something from this experience. I realized that I am going to stop trying when writing papers for him and just copy what I consider my useless rambles – they seem to go over better and it is a lot less stressful than having to think.
