You spend hours working your best on something, and no one makes any notice of it? Yet when you spend all of 5 minutes on one thing, everyone thinks it's an amazing masterpiece?
Happened to me today. I had a history assignment, you could draw a picture, write a poem, make a movie poster, or write an essay. I decided to write a poem. I write the poem off the top of my head one day, last minute, JUST before it's due. I give it to my teacher, she makes no note of anything. A week or so later (today) she pulls me aside and says "About your poem, you did good on it, got 100, but I want to put it into Reflections*." I just sort of gave her a half smile, and said okay. I did pretty much the worst on it, yet she thinks it's my best. I showed her some other poems I've done that I thought were good, and she thought they pretty much sucked. Happen to anyone else?
* Reflections is a magazine my school produces at the end of the year. We gather a ton of poetry, short stories, photography, and artwork and put it all together. I'm one of 5 editors throughout the school that does it.
