I Still Think about the Time I Got All A's

The tutors--my college calls them tutors not professors--were notoriously stingy with giving out A's.

One even admitted that he always gave out C's unless someone was exceptional.

So one semester I was delighted to open my report card and see all A's.

I mean, I was depressed and not well mentally or healthy emotionally but for a people pleaser all A's are the ultimate reward.

Yay, good grades.

Now let me go lie on my bed in the dark all day.
