Not really comfortable with how individuals define themselves as the grades they attain.

Being unable to score that coveted distinction for one midterm paper is sufficient to qualify one as stupid; an overworked brain that resists information is equivalent to being lazy; mugging mindlessly through stacks of information instead of enjoying the panoramic landscapes of knowledge.

Surely, each person is more than the aggregate of their grades. Surely, each person is greater than the sum of 2-d numerals. Really, is there any need to define one by one's grades?

P.S. probably won't be sharing this thought with anyone any time soon. Was woefully treated as a two-headed alien whenever I voiced this thought.
