I woke up today to see that I missed the bloggers challenge party yesterday and I was so upset. I always seem to miss Alicia's parties every single time due to real life stuff. The challenge question today is to write about whatever is on our minds. When I saw that, I thought uh oh! I am not going to be able to stop writing if I just write whats on my mind. I worry a lot, so I have my brain stuffed to the top with ongoing thoughts and ideas. I hope that writing about them will help clear my mind.
I am going to write about real life stuff only today. I used to go to bed around 5am and wake up everyday around 11am, so I was a night person. I took classes in the evening and studied at night, so this scheduled worked perfect for me. I have a lot of people living with me and I also get distracted easily. Since the completion of my schooling, I have decided to start on a new schedule of waking up early since I am going to start looking for a job. It's tough, trying to to get on a completely new schedule after so many years and it doesn't help that I am a night person. I enjoy being up when everyone is asleep and everything is quiet and peaceful.
I also woke up on Wednesday to check my final grades for school and boy was I in for a shockaroo. One of my teachers gave me an "F". When I saw that I actually got physically sick to my stomach. I regained my composure and started thinking about the class. Where did I go wrong? I realized there was no absolute way that I really got an "F". The class final paper was 30% of my grade and before I turned in my final paper, I had 100% in the class. All my previous class work was 70% of my grade and even if I had not turned in my paper, the lowest grade I would have received would have been a "C". That is when I realized it had to be a mistake.
At 6am in the morning, I called my professors phone number and left a polite message of desperation. I also sent an email immediately after the phone call. I was starting to worry because this teacher had a tendency to never respond to email. I always had to ask him questions during class that I had previously emailed because he never wrote back. He is an older guy but a good teacher. I actually had him for another class four years ago when I started at the school and I got an A in the class.
I did not suspect this could happen to me at the worst time ever. I just graduated from school and I am waiting for my diploma in the mail. I hear it takes up to September to receive it... This grade would set me back from receiving my diploma on time and that worries me most of all. If you would like to know, I turned in my paper on time, so I knew it couldn't be that. So I am impatiently waiting for a response, which I am sure won't come soon. I am going to give him until Monday next week and I will call again. I will then call my school and find out if they can give me advice as to what step to take next.
This was the first time something like this has happened to me since I started college. On a great note, I got all A's in my other classes and a 99% on one of my projects in another class that I was worried about. I also have my new baby nephew coming next Tuesday and I am sooooo excited!!! My sister has to go in early Tuesday morning to be induced even though her due date is the week after. I am not sure why they decided upon an earlier date but I ecstatic.
This is my second nephew and I am going to my sister's house to stay with her son for a couple days while she and her husband stay at the hospital. I will also be there during the delivery but not inside the room. She only wants her husband with her in the delivery room, so I have to stay outside. Last time was intense, being outside the door and hearing her have my first nephew. I had tears in my eyes during it because I hated to hear her in so much pain and struggle. She is also not telling anyone the name of her second son until they come see him at the hospital. I get to be one of the first since I will be there right after she has the baby.
I am currently putting together my first "look of the day" post, which I have decided to create a separate post on this blog, since it's kind of long and will just extend this already long post. I hope you enjoyed reading my crazy days post and I hope everyone has a great day or night! Thank you for reading.
