Good, but not great

I have already finished 17 pages of the second chapter today. In other words, I need only around 5 pages for the last part, Huichang suppression and a 1-2 page conclusion, and then my whole job is down. I just cannot image how happy that would be when I have no paper assignment any more. I’ll have a relax winter.

Dr. Rossabi emailed to me saying that I have done a good job in style. My content is always good, and grammar has been improved. I know I am good, yet not great. I expect the day when my English writing becomes grammar-error free. I don’t know if I can really have such a day or not, but my husband gave me an unhesitant positive answer. How nice a husband is!

Papers and tutors

I finished the first chapter and 11 pages of the second chapter. That means I am basically keeping up with my plan. If there is no anything accident, I’ll finish the second chapter by end of this month. Then in December, I’ll have adequate time to revise them.

I really don’t like the tutor whom I am assigned in the college Writing Centre. She has completely no idea about my subject, and I can tell she is indifferent in my paper at all. It is understandable and I don’t blame her. I just feel I am unlucky. Several times I thought that I might stop to go, but I again and again tell myself that a few is better than none. So, I am keeping the tutoring appointment. The tutor I met in last two semesters was not very good either, but compared to this one, he was much better. I start to miss him.

I have to solely rely on Barry to correct my paper. Even though he is always pleasure to help me, I really don’t want to bother him too much. Professor Rossabi said he would correct my paper in the end of this semester, but I doubt if he has the time to do this for me.
