There were some harsh nine markers…and one in particular

my urban nine marker about conservation of water an energy was so atrocious. One of my paragraphs was only one sentence 😭

those 9 markers were so bad, the first one especially- our teacher didn't give us any case studies for either so I had to adapt one for energy and the water one I talked about some random greywater
