Angry I Just Need to Rant.

I'm sorry, I don't care if you comment or not I just need to get this off my chest before I yell at some people I shouldn't.

So starting this Wednesday my university is starting finals. Alright, nothing new happens every year. Well here is my Finals schedule. I have a final on Friday, Sunday, and Monday. Okay, nothing too terrible, not the best schedule but I've definitely had worse. Well on top of that I have an extra credit essay that was originally due this Tuesday, then the deadline was changed to this Thursday, and then recently I receive an email saying that it's due on Tuesday.

So as of right now I am very confused on when this essay is due, but I'm turning it in on Tuesday. And now I get word from my Platoon Sergeant that I did my squad evaluations all wrong and need to redo the comments section on them. I have to redo 9 different evaluations to rewrite. Nine! Do you know how hard it was to write them initially? And my Platoon Commander has had them for three weeks. He looked them over weeks ago and said there was nothing wrong with them. And he's just now telling me that I need to rewrite them?! With finals right around the corner?! And then you tell me that I have until tonight to get them done? Do you think I have unlimited time? Really? Oh I'm sorry, it's not like my Chemistry final is going to determine whether or not I pass Chemistry or anything! ARGH!

Okay, rant over. I can focus now. Kudos if you read that.

Take a deep breath, drink some hot cocoa, take a hot bath, go for a ride, whatever to get unstressed. Then I recommend you go talk to these people. Find out when the essay is really due, and ask WHY the evals were wrong. Clarifying these two situations may initially seem more stressful, but trust me, it will take a load off your chest once you do.

We have finals in another week too. :/ Ethics is going to be HARD.

Well, if you don't take some lesson from it, it really is a waste. Next time, ask for a template/format for whatever document you have to prepare. If there isn't one - then, there isn't one.:)

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
