This is my midterms week. Apparently.

I have four papers to write, two midterm exams to take-- both on the same fucking day, and I feel like shit because of an oncoming cold.

Paper 1 (English) - due today; I didn't do it and now it's late. All late assignments are to be turned in by Sunday.
Paper 2 (Philosophy) - due Wednesday; I haven't done it yet.
Paper 3 (English) - due Thursday; I haven't even touched it.
Exam 1 (Physical Geography) - on Thursday; I don't even know what chapters the exam is on.........
Exam 2 (Math) - on Thursday; I don't even know what we're doing in class. Inverse functions? Astronomy? What??...



So, is anyone else having a tough time with school right now? I'm getting destroyed by school. I'm at the point of no return... ready to give up any second now. I might not even try to do any of the things I'm supposed to do. I've lost so much motivation to do well in school! Booooo.

Quick question: Does anyone have some extremely awesome and believable "I didn't do my schoolwork because..." excuses? Or maybe the "Can I make up the exam because..." excuses? I'd love to hear those and learn which ones were the most reliable.

The best excuse I ever had for missing an exam was because I was seeing U2.

Im in a similar situ though, Bio and 2 english papers to do. I felt like giving up too, but I figured I might as well say, cos even if I do fail Im still learning stuff. That or I forgot to drop out.

good luck with your schoolwork. forgetting to drop out is good. that ensures your future.
you should hit me up with some of that memory loss.

The worst one when is when people haven't bothered to do their homework but they flick through heaps of crumpled bits of paper and try to convince you they really did do it but just can't find it. Or the ones who look shocked when they hear they had homework to do even though they always get homework.

^ you're so awesome ellena.

i haven't written my papers yet but i got official extensions from the professors and i got my geography exam some other time (i used my "one make-up" exam card for it.. strange professors you know). and then i took my math exam which didn't go as self-deprecating as i thought it'd be.

i gotta write all three papers this weekend though.

seriously, sometimes i think that i'm every teacher's worst nightmare.

I need help!!!

I have to write my philosophy paper on a book Fear and Trembling: Repetition by Soren Kierkegaard.

Anyone able to help me out? I'm struggling to interpret his thoughts on the 'knight of resignation', 'knight of faith', and so on.

I got an A in my Environmental Science. I also got a U (ungraded) in my Biology. My teacher thought the contrast in marks was hillarious for some reason, but even the exceedingly clever people only got a D in Biology. So the teacher actually recommends that no-one resit it.

But an A! Ive never even gotten an A before. *superhappyexplosion*
