She read all thirteen pages of it without saying a word, making me very anxious.
She then said, "We are going to have to work on this title for next semester."
I was confused. This class ends this semester and I don't have her again next semester.
She then said "Because I am going to submit this for scholarships and possible publication. And I think you should consider presenting it at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research."
I was stunned. I could not, and still can't, believe that I had produced a paper that was impressive enough for her to believe it worthy of scholarships, NCUR and possible publication??
WHAT! I was SO SO SO happy! I seriously have never been prouder of myself.
I truly went into that class so scared and doubtful. We meet on Tuesdays and Thursdays and each time we meet we have about twenty pages of reading due and a two page paper. Katie (my AMAZING professor) has insane expectations for the students in her class. It is very rigorous, but I found that I was capable of fulfilling her expectations.
I seriously have never been so excited about anything in my life.
I am so proud of myself.
