I could blame it on my professor, since he fails to make use of the calendar that the school trained us all on back in January. I could also blame it on my life. Still, if the six other adults in the class could figure it out, I suppose there’s not really a good excuse for why I (an adult) missed the deadline.
But I did. By five days. Five days is five letter grades, which (at least in theory) means an F on the paper. Given the way its weighted, it would make my final grade in the class….a 90. By far the lowest grade I’ve gotten in the program so far.
So that sucketh a little bit. (‘Scuse the Francais.)
But oh well. I turned it in, did the course evaluation while the adrenaline was still pumping, and now just have to write the Evil Dr. Crankypants essay for my other class. Which, now that I’ve had a little perspective session, is not going to be that bad. After all, if I get an F on that paper, I’ll still get like a 90 in the course. These are the blessings of doing well on the forums. You can slack at the end and still not look like a total nimrod on transcripts.
