This,* is where I intend to be pretentious, pretend to be an academician and prove I’m probably…

P.s I don’t mean to come across passive- aggressively but. You can just, you know,† like just, maybe like, you know, like, you know like… Just… You know like, you know like just, like just, maybe like, you know and maybe just like, yeah! Like,‡ click the academician tag on the blog posts or like something… If that’s not like just… You know. Too much to ask and stuff.†‡

Academician Was a blog series written as a part of a writing module for a BA university degree that wanted five blogs in my voice but an academic tone. In response, I decided to take a risk and turn it into an experiment to see if the tutor would be willing to step out of the box with regards to the marking grid.

When this piece was marked it achieved a low 2.1 and was marked down for not conforming to the marking criteria. 

I guess my voice in academic tones equates to an academic smacked bum.

BUT! At least we know how that experiment went. :p
