“Learning CPR. I really think that every one need CPR and I’m glad I had it.”

Seriously? Everyone needs CPR? All the time? Are you the guy in the operating room that takes over when the paddles don’t work? You pound on the patient’s open chest and say things like, “Why’d it have to be him? Take me!” and then the other doctors have to drag you off his cold, lifeless body and pronounce time of death.

This has gotten morbid, or too much like an episode of some medical drama.


Pick one!

“I did challenge myself and learned new things that I have never would even think of.”

OK, is it “have never,” or [cringe] “never would even?” It can’t be both.

“Dont get sidetracked. Focused more on material.”

First off, where is the apostrophe in “Dont?” Second, the way the second sentence is written is just… I don’t know… wrong.

Wait, what?

“I understand why Prof. XXXXX shared many of his perspectives. But I feel like it students are not gripping the point and tunning out than the point of students grasping and learning are unachievable.”

So well!

“Dr. XXXXX does an extremely well job of being a good professor. One of my favs!”

I think this is a situation in which the student was drilled with “When someone asks ‘How are you?’ the correct response is ‘well,’ not ‘good,'” a few too many times

You Lack Understanding

“working on the hands on stuff like all the homework helped me understanding accounting.” Too bad it didn’t help you “understanding” English.

This is a Stretch

I’m not even sure what this means: “It helped stretched out the importance of organizing when giving a speech.”
