* have been warned!

I know that I have talked about school in my posts. Most of it has been random mentions of the stress or simply that fact that I am a college student and a stay at home mom.

Well, that is about to change today.

I am currently a senior in the BS Accounting program at the University of Missouri: Saint Louis. I am currently a Latin honor candidate with a GPA of 3.48. I typically get A's with a few B's sprinkled here and there as the semester passes. School is fairly easy for me. I study a limited amount but excel in classes.

Well that was true until today...I just recently took a test in my Financial Accounting and Reporting 1 class and got a 53.3%. I now have a 75% with little to no hope of achieving a B.

This is depressing...I cried until my eyes couldn't cry any more...which is not something I do often. I am the type of person that looks at a half glass of water and says that it is all full...half water, half air....But I think this is a hopeless cause.

I am NOT going to pass this class. Well, I will most likely pass with a C or a C-. Which to normal people who are NOT in the Accounting Program at UMSL that is fine...But with my plans and at my school this prohibits me from moving forward with my degree. I can't move on to my other accounting classes unless I have an "Accounting GPA" of 2.3. Well a C or a C- will give me a 2.0 or 1.7 respectively.

I have never in my life felt so defeated...I just don't know how I am going to pull this off this semester. I just want to give up, change my major, give up all together

I need to spend all of my time studying for accounting, but I can't sacrifice my other classes to do that. I can't sacrifice my children to do that, or my diet/activity...I only have ten days....I need a miracle!

Oh dear Lord....To top it off I have blisters on the bottom of my feet....

Apparently my feet are too small for my skin tight shoes...Pain I tell you!

ok I am done with my depressing day....tomorrow will be a better day!

  1. Have you explained your situation to your professor and asked what you can do? Maybe there is some way he or she can help you. I understand how depressing it is when you are used to performing so well. Don't give up; 10 more days is better than nothing. Meanwhile, take good care of yourself.
