Big Ben in Miniature, manipulated in Photoshop CS2. Even better large.
That’s it. Sad, but true. I have to drop this class. I am struggling to get through the homework, and the best case scenario right now is that I could get a C on this test. I could use some of the Spring Break time to play catch-up, but I have some review to do in Biology and Chemistry already. Mike pointed out just now how stressed I’ve been sounding when we talk on the phone, and I can see what I’m doing pretty clearly and I know all the signs.
When I get stressed or anxious about something, or just don’t want to do it at all, I will do everything I can to avoid it. I’ve always been like this. I would rather stare at a spot on the ceiling right now instead of working on this homework. I’m in avoidance mode. Heck, I was installing plugins on the blog and making miniatures to avoid it yesterday. I want to be doing anything else over the homework. Last night I had to stop myself from doing spring cleaning housework because I needed to do the homework. It is that bad.
I’m just considering it a medical expense and letting it go. I know what I could have done differently, but even if I had, the first unit would be a blur thanks to the issues I was having. Now I can focus on the other 3 classes and when I take this one again I will get the A that I should be making, instead of settling for a worse grade.
Update, about an hour later: Can I just tell you how relieved I feel having made that choice? Oh my goodness, it is like a huge weight has been lifted. As an added bonus – I’m officially on Spring Break now! Whoo hoo! Parrrrrtay! Oh, wait. That was the spring breaks of my youth. Never mind. I think I’m going to go do the podcast and then work on my second Jaywalker sock.
