    Not Adverse to Learning, but Always Misstepping
    By Sean Ripple

    The misuse of a word on a test that didn’t make the grade I had hoped for was called out by my professor during a meeting.
    The word was concise.
    “Did you mean precise?” she asked.
    I did actually. Isn’t that a kick in the shin? Nevermind the irony.
    Also, I took hits for my passive voice and vague language. She told me that the name of the game is to use language which identifies the actor and is precise (there’s that word again).
