I Suck



And I don't even want to tell you what happened when I searched for an image for this blog using the word "suck"! HA! I got a warning about adult content and my browser was shut down--I didn't even think about suck and porn...doh!

So back to why I suck--

I am taking Human Development this semester. It is a really interesting class but it is a lot of work. And life right now is, well, hectic and stressful to put it mildly.

Each week we have 3-6 essays we have to write on various topics to help us focus and expand on concepts through the units. The essays do not exactly have an assigned length but in order to clearly articulate the concepts and our understanding of those, along with real-world examples of how those concepts explain human development, they can get pretty lengthy and require a lot of effort.

Last week, I forgot two of them. Flat out forgot to do them. The worst part, I remembered I needed to do them then promptly forgot again. The due dates passed and it was not until I was in the testing center that it dawned on me I forgot to write two of the required essays. My professor does not accept late work and frankly if I was her I would not accept them late either. I messed up. Simple as that.

We do still have more points to be earned so I am hopeful that my overall grade will not fall too much. I had a good cushion with the 109% I earned on my last major exam but I am so angry at myself. I have this standard of perfection that even though I know is impossible I still strive for it. My GPA is a 4.0 after 39 credit hours and I want to keep it that way but after this I am just not sure that is possible.

Now I have to work twice as hard to try and make up for this. I suck.

Don not be so hard on yourself.It's not easy, but you can do it. I am so glad those days are behind me now, although, I am a huge nerd and loved school lol. I just don't know if I could do it now that I am a mommy!!!!
