My Head is a Wreck Again

It’s been a while since I’ve battled one of these migraines: I’ve grown a little too comfortable without them. Life has been a dizzying whir of cramming chapters again, quizzes, and posting a ton of forum posts per class. Some professors are asking for 6 posts in a week. (That’s an unusually large amount for one week.) I ended up dropping my Statistics class because…well…my professor was less than competent. On the first week of class, he was still vacationing in the wilderness of remote Alberta. By the end of the week, we still didn’t have a syllabus or our course ID number for the MyStatLab. (Um, what am I paying for again? Can I get a competent teacher up in this mug?)

Still, I managed to get the 100+ Statistic problems finished that he asked for- all without extending our due dates up a week. Unfortunately, that much math ended up causing me to be late in another class, and although I was only late for one forum discussion board, my professor- my communications professor– cited me as a “risk”- all because I was late for ONE FORUM POSTING. Let’s keep in mind that I emailed her 3 times and she never responded. Communications my ass.

But that’s not the bad part. The bad part is that she herself had a family tragedy and forgot to post week 3’s assignment. For 3 days. But I’m a “risk”. (Hello? Is there a button I can push to notify somebody of my professor being a risk?) If you can’t walk the walk- don’t talk the talk!

I have a heap of assignments due still by Sunday but after 6+ hours of straight schoolwork- I’m toast. Normally, that would just be my starting point, but 6 hours with a brooding semi-migraine is quite an accomplishment. Josh has gone to retrieve the remedy. I won’t say what the remedy is, but if you know me well enough, you know what that remedy is. (It’s not pot and I sort of wish it was.) Alas, I hate pot.

So tonight, I’ll lounge in bed with my laptop watching Project Free TV, nursing my head, and I hope I’m eating bad crap and feeling really good about it.

    You eat that bad food girl, and feel good doing it. The 100+ statistic problems should make up for it. The remedy is always chocolate chip cookies & a movie, or excessive heaps of alcohol haha < 3 I feel for you. Good luck on getting all the assignments done.

    • Or maybe I should dip the chocolate chip cookies IN alcohol? 🙂

  2. You are brilliant. So, I agree with the previous commenter. Eat that bad food and feel good about it! I am glad you are taking some time to chill out (hope you can). Feel better! In the meantime, I am sending you happy, funny, you kick ass vibes! ❤

    • Can you tell I have PMS much?! MUCH??!!

      Right? Ha…(or it’s merely a bout of temporary insanity from the schoolwork. Either way it’s the same.) But you would understand that. 😉

    Teacher crap like that makes my blood boil. That behavior is not acceptable. Sorry to hear that. arghhh. Just as well to get out of that statistics class. Take care of yourself and regroup. x

    • Exactly, Y. You’re a great teacher (hey, you’ve taught me a lot! :0) – not to mention you;re an actual professor/instructor! I swear, when I get my master’s degree, I’m going to create a “master design” for online instructors and pimp it around to major universities…heheh. Every semester I have to correct my professors’ syllabi (etc.) and it’s getting to be a bit much. The good professors do make up for the bad ones though, thankfully. Hope you have a great wekeend. ;0) x!

    Feel better soon! (And I agree, chocolate chip cookies IN alcohol must be the best solution there is! Hahah)

    • Exactly! And thanks, by the way. Good seeing you. :0)

    I’m so glad you’re such a good student 🙂 So proud you get through all the bullshit and hard work!

    • Thanks, and I can say the same for you. :0) You know, I feel like quitting every other day, and some days I feel virtually brain dead from being overworked, but I keep telling myself that it’ll be worth it down the road. Hope you’re doing well too- I’ll pop in in a bit. ;0)
