Smack me, someone! I am an idiot of the highest order.
A few weeks ago I realised there was no way on earth I could fit in a full time university subject load and work and look after kids and be sane. So I decided to drop one subject and do a half load. I emailed the uni and it was all sorted.
This weekend I have spent HOURS working on an assignment for the subject I decided to keep. Yesterday I read an entire novel.
Today I decided to check the subject forums to see what other people thought about the essay questions, before I started writing my response. Only to discover…
I DROPPED THE WRONG SUBJECT.
I am no longer registered in the subject I have been slaving over. And I AM registered in the subject for which I have done NO work in three weeks. Which has an assignment due next week – two essays.
There is no hope – none – of getting that assignment done.
I’ve just written a pathetic, begging, pleading email to the uni to see if I can possibly get out of the course I meant to drop without getting fail grade and without losing all my money. And I am hoping they can also get me back INTO to the course I dropped.
Seriously, what was I thinking? I looked at the email I sent and I very clearly asked to drop the wrong subject. I even wrote drop in bold, just to be sure I’d really screw myself over.
Okay, off to drown my sorrows. Pity I don’t drink alcohol. Can you down sorrows in caffeine-free diet coke?
