Well, I am pleased to say that the last proofreading on paper assignment earnt me an A, which should've made me pleased, but I am deriving no pleasure from scoring highly. I am a straight A student, not because I'm a genius; I am above average intelligence, but also work really hard. So, why no self validation? Because I have been here before. That's what 5 years higher education did. Half a decade of going from scratch to post graduate. No kudos - points don't mean prizes if you are an older worker, it seems. Or a first time newly-graduated mature person. Meaning that I have yet to break out of seriously shit jobs and do something with my degree. I've moaned about this in the past, so I won't go down this road again. The only way forward is freelance and apparently, if you are introverted, it's the way to go.
I'm on the copy editing part of the module now, which is TONS more interesting. Might revisit this as a module at some point, but I want to stick with proofreading for now - get that under my belt later when I am more established, maybe. Right now, I am learning about XML code, which I kinda know about because of the HTML code on LJ, funnily enough.
I know I posted this vid a few weeks back, but it's currently haunting me on Spotify
