I got way behind on my schoolwork since I maimed myself. Even though I had all sorts of idle time my drug addled brain was not up to reading textbooks and retaining the information. Heck, I had difficulty sorting mail when I got home from the hospital. I stared at one piece for 15 minutes and still couldn't decide if it was important. 'Honey, it's from the school and it has our kid's name on it, but I dunno what it means.' I swear they lobotomized me while I was there.
So ok, I finally felt my brain was in order enough to try catching up and finishing one of my 2 classes on time. I just had to submit 3 assignments and take the final. Other class I'll take an incomplete because I can get the last 4 assignments done this week, but not the term project. So I bust my butt to finish the one by Saturday so I can take the final today. I log on (it's online) and the final has disappeared from the site. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had the dates wrong. I needed to take the final by Saturday. The process of getting in contact with either of my instructors is ridiculous. Neither of them seems to have a functioning computer. If they do, they may check their email quarterly. They never answer their phones. I'm very frustrated and considering smoke signals (I'll start the fire with my cataloging textbook...Seamus, this book will cure your insomnia). Maybe carrier pigeons would work. I have a 98 in one class and a 99 in the other and I am half tempted to say 'screw it' and take an F on the final for one and the term project for the other. I'd blow my 4.0 but I'd still pass and I'd be done with the exasperation.
Ok, rant done. Scroll down for the less stressed post.
