I was very flattered. (Of course, I did study my brains to mush so that I could do well on the exams, but still. It is nice to know my hard work was appreciated!) I hope I still have my tests somewhere...the teacher was handing back our third exam when she asked, so I just told her to keep the exam, since I'd probably lose it if I took it. My classmate P seemed very surprised that I didn't want the exam to help study for the final, but all the information's in my notes or in the textbook.
Of course, I still haven't gotten back my weekly essay in which I complained that Siddharta is a selfish jerk who throws a government in turmoil and abandons his family because he is depressed and can't handle a world with ugliness in it. He should be a real man and just suck it up.
I can't help but feel that paper would not endear me to the teacher.
