Crazy Week So Far!
I can't say that I've been having a great week so far. I've been having a lot of computer troubles at work, which can be very frustrating. But my cunundrums reached a crescendo when I realized late last night that I had two exams and a quiz due in the morning. Plan A was to finish up the quiz when I got in last night, but that didn't happen. Princess has a tendency to wake up around 1 am and last night was no different.
My only other option was to put plan B in motion. It meant taking Princess to daycare earlier than usual in order to complete everything before the noon deadline. But of all mornings she didn't want to get out of bed. Baby girl was so tired, and I felt bad having to wake her up. It was either let her sleep some more or wake her up. I chose the latter. She wasn't too happy, but I had no choice. From breakfast to washing up and getting dressed, she wasn't having it. It's like the stars were not aligned. By the time I got in the car I realized my gas tank was on empty. The display read that I had 25 miles left. With daycare just a few minutes away, I would be able to make there and back. The best part about the day was that as soon as we got out of the car, Princess was happy as can be.
By the time I returned home it was after 10 AM. I had less than two hours to make deadline. I hurried through the quiz and the first exam. But when I got to the last test, I was at a loss for words. Nothing made sense. The questions looked extremely foreign. I didn't recognize anything from the assignments or previous quizes we had. I fired off an emergency email to the professor hoping he could help. But he basically said that other students had the same concerns and I should make sure to keep up with the emails in the future. "Huh?" I asked myself. I don't need a scolding, "just tell be where these questions are coming from." I called a classmate in a panic and she was so sweet to direct me to the right location. I breathed a sigh of relieve, but I quickly went back into panic mode once I realized that I only had thirteen minutes left to finished the twenty question exam. Ahhhh!!!!
On top of all that, I had only one hour to get dressed, buy gas, and make it in to work. I barely made it there on time. Overall the day was a total disaster! I did great on the quiz, but bombed the two exams. I'm too embarassed to reveal my grade, so please don't ask.
Gosh, life has become a juggling act, and this day proved just that. I have to get my act together and pass these classes. Thanks for reading.
