So I talked to the chair of my department today. He really helped me think this through and is pulling a lot of strings for me. Plan A is to grit through the rest of the semester and hope I come out with a C. I contacted the professor in charge of the lab to see if we can think of something I can do in order to make up for my poor performance in the beginning of the semester. He won’t be back on campus until November 22nd, but I still emailed him. Now I’m just waiting for his response.
Plan B is to finish that 1-credit lab in the winter session. I can still walk across the stage, I would just have to come back for the winter and get things cleared. My chair hooked me up with Residence Life. They said that I can work off the rent through labor, which I have no problems with. As long as I can graduate I’m good. My department even said that he will help me find the money to fund the cost of the class. He’s really going the extra mile for me.
Regardless, I have decided not to stress over this fact anymore. I just have to keep pushing till the end of the semester and hope that everything turn out for the best. When I do graduate and become successful, I will definitely donate to my department. Cause if not for them, I would not be that successful in the future. I might even come back and teach at this school :D.
I didn’t know where else to express my thoughts other than here on tumblr. These thoughts that I’ve been having is eating away at my mind. I hate to admit this, but I have been having suicidal thoughts.
I really want to graduate, but the thought of failing to graduate this semester because of a 1-credit lab has caused me so much stress. The lab isn’t what I expected it to be. The amount of homework and his strict grading policy isn’t what I expect from a freshmen level course.
I decided to talk to the chair of the department. Since the department is the one who decides if you graduate or not, I was wondering if they can do a course replacement. I can’t afford to come back a semester for only one course. Its even worse since its a 1-credit course. I starting to think that in the case that I do fail, then it would be better to just kill myself.
I know I sound so pathetic. I’m ashamed of myself as well. But I can’t just keep thinking these thoughts to myself. I had to get it out. I have a hard time sleeping. And I feel like I’ve aged a ton.
I understand that theres a difference between mercy and merit. I have over 30 unused credits. I think that shows that I have some merit to ask for some mercy. Asking for a course replacement for a 1-credit class shouldn’t be thay big of a deal right? I really hope this talk goes well…
Holy Fudging goodness! My roommate’s gf is freaking crazy O.O. Like, I know that things can get rough during finals week, but she just drove here unannounced! Like, its very unusual. Why the hell is she coming down here when she knows that we need to focus on our finals and projects? O.O!!! What the freaking hell!!! I swear she is a crazy a$$ lady…I might just die today.
Is she trying to pussy woop him or something? Sorry for my language, but she seriously couldn’t wait for a couple more days until he goes back home to her? He’s trying to freaking graduate for goodness sakes! a;klsdjfk;ajsdklgaoiwrhygrklghaoga;werhjg. She needs to leave, but how can I just tell her to leave after she drives over 2 hours to get here? Yes…she drove over 2 hours, during FUDGING finals week, because she wants to feel love from the roommate….SHE’S FUDGING CRAZY!!!!
I have written previously about cyber security and cyber defense topics that have become more acute in the wake of several large scale attacks on banks and other companies. Unfortunately, law makers in DC are reacting the only way they seem to know how: by further broadening laws that are…
My next project is to customize my tumblr theme. I looked through the html once, and to be honest, it looked like hieroglyphics >_<. But hopefully with enough patience, I should be able to understand enough to alter it. This is also an opportunity for me to expand what I’ve learned in my Internet Programming class as well. Hopefully I don’t do to bad xD.
to read/write to my webpage. However, for this particular assignment, there wasn’t a place to write to. So after hours of going through the references, I finally stumbled upon the HTML/DOM documentation…and behold, I found
"innerHTML" is the text value of whatever node is calling it I think. So by using
I was finally able to write to the webpage where I would normally think would require a <p> tag xD.
Lesson learned: Don’t depend only on what you learn in class cause it isn’t enough. Your professor can only point you in a direction. Its your choice whether or not to go in that direction. You have to take responsibility for your own education :D
