*sighs and lays head on table*
So it looks like I will be failing math this term. This was my third attempt at this class. I’m very worried and depressed that this is really going to bite me in the ass come grad school time. Here’s the story.
Last year, fall of 2009, I started working on my general education and associates degree. I nearly flunked out of school and I have a withdraw on my transcript for algebra from that term. I was taking 4 classes, working 35 hours and having the 2nd worst Crohn’s flare up of my life. Next term, winter 2009, I passed with straight Cs still being sick as hell.
Next term, spring 2010, I flunked classes again, still not knowing I had Crohn’s. This included algebra again. I had a HORRIBLE teacher who on the first day of class, told us there was no such thing as addition and subtraction. That was the end of that year.
So fall 2010 comes and I’m feeling better, have my crohn’s almost under control and then my health starts falling apart again around December. I still pass with all 5 classes with 3 A’s and 2 B’s. Winter term comes and I need to pass this damn algebra class. I tell myself 3rd time is a charm! Well….. turns out I got pregnant in November and spent the first third of winter term sick from pregnancy and then spent more time sick from the medical abortion I had to have at the end of January. I was never able to catch up with the math and it looks like this term I will finish with A, C, and NP (no pass). I’m worried that it’s really going to look bad that it took me four tries to complete algebra.
I’m also on my period and sick from that right now since my periods are horrible, my Russian teacher moved our 10 min oral final to this week instead of finals week, so it’s 5 days early and I’m stressed.
Is grad school still in my future?
Anyone else feel like they could really use a pick me up? =/
