The disastrous oversight
I absolutely believe my last algebra homework was due today, but it was due yesterday. I’m devastated. The worst is that I accepted to submit this homework with another student, and I wanted to be there for her, and totally let her down. This is completely destabilizing as my next exam is approaching. I can’t focus, I can’t think, I don’tknow how much sleep I’ll get, and how much I’ll be able to eat.
There’s one thing that crush me above all others is to let someone down. Especially during the finals. It’s a nightmare. It seemed like I was managing the day well, and I was all happy about my stress management yesterday. Well it’s all down the drain now. I don’t know how I’ll be able to refocus before Friday.
I’ve emailed the teacher, and I will visit his office tomorrow if I don’t have a reply soon. I don’t care to loose all my points because of my mistake, but I don’t want my teammate to suffer. The lesson I’m getting from this is to put all the due dates in my calendar no matter what, for the rest of my life.
I’m in disbelief, and I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to make it up to my teammate. I’m going to force some food down my throat because I have a ling day tomorrow. My heart is crush, my soul is aching. It may sound ridiculous that I’m making such a scene for a math homework. But truly, letting someone who helped me so much throughout the session down is disastrous. Especially when I don’t even take the time to properly look at the homework due date.
This careless overconfidence is a reminder that I always have to double check what I do. I’m forgetful and disorganized — the only remedy for that is to constantly write down what’s needed in my calendar. The only remedy for stess is to be organized.
