I am not a happy bunny.

We have a piece of coursework to be handed in today. I haven't been having a very good week, and by last night had only got 3/5 questions done, and hadn't started my write-up. This is very unlike me, but it means that I was frantically working this morning. The deadline was 12 pm. I missed my 12:15 lecture and I tried ringing the lecturer repeatedly, but kept getting his answer phone. I sent him an email requesting an extension for later today or Monday, and explaining why - there's a note in my file about my depression and other health issues.

I would have asked for an extension earlier, but I thought I'd finish in time.

I have now finished it, printed it, and am hurridly eating lunch before heading up to uni. I will hand it in and collect a mitigating circumstances form too, just in case. Hopefully because I've made my tutor aware of the problems I'm facing right from the start there won't be a problem and I will be able to avoid being penalised for lateness - otherwise my mark will be capped at a maximum of 40% :/

We didn't get to go on our overnight horse trip
The wind was whipping to 40 mph (64 kph) my kitchen sink drain was leaking and the WC wouldn't stop running. We went for a nice ride here at home, then headed to the hardware store.
We can't use the kitchen sink for 24 hours so no doing dishes, guess we will eat out

Hello everybody.

I'm not sure about studying in university here or there Claire but I've understood that it's pretty permissive school to study. I mean you can decide about your studies pretty free way like how hard you want to study, how many courses you want to pick up at a time etc... If this is like I think do you have considered unloading your studies a little? It's important to study but it's more important to take care of your health.

Anyway, you sound so strong young woman that I'm sure you'll solve your problems and go through all that.

Aww Vida that sucks . But maybe you can take your overnight trip some else day?

Actually, courseloads in the UK are nothing like in the US (where you get a lot of choices). I do not have any optional modules and my course structure is fixed. There is no option to take fewer classes; I either stay in and keep going, or drop out for the rest of the year and resit my entire second year. Things aren't that bad, luckily.

I'm coping okay with uni. This is the first time I've had something like this happen and I have to get used to not being a perfect achiever all the time!

Morning all, I have been really busy these days with building website for my gaming clan.

I am going for breakfast now but thought I'd drop in and say hello . Hope everyone doing well

Bleh. I had a really good mood this morning until now. I had an email from the maths lecturer - he's playing things by the rules but I hoped he'd be kind. Now I have to go through mitigating circumstances - get a doctor's note, talk to a couple of people, maybe still get my mark capped at 40%. Urgh, urgh, urgh. My doctor did say she'd write a note if I needed one but I still need to contact her about it and stuff. I wanted to talk to my tutor yesterday but he's away until Monday, so I need to email him. >< It's just so much work. And I'd rather not get capped at 40% if I can avoid it but it might still happen.

Not knowing how something will go REALLY gets to me, really really really.

I'll have a birthday party of my nephew tomorrow. Nice to go there and meet relatives .

I cross my fingers for it that you can keep this 40% Claire.

Capping my mark at 40% is what will happen because it's turned in late. I might be able to pursue mitigating circumstances to avoid that penalty. However, I have decided not to do it - too much hassle, too much stress, and I think the coursework is only 10% of the module. A difficult decision and quite a complicated one given my circumstances and the kind of person I am.

Ok. I think it's wise decision if the coursework holds only that small portion of the course. You have so many things under processing just now.
