I have likely failed another as well, this just plain sucks.

I may have to stay an extra year at uni, and this is just a straight up bad thing.

I am staying in this course though, so help me god


oh goooood my parents are going to be such shit heads about this

At least I have my alcoholism

Tell me bros, what is the haps with your shit, what is going down, there are some bros here with some serious changes going on, some bros here who have found some pretty rad changes lately, and some bros with some changes they gotta make.

I have emailed the class covener with basically a "OH GOD PLEASE WHAT DO I DO I'LL DO ANYTHING"

    well, at least they don't know about your homosexuality

    I tried to write "but that" and my hands naturally wrote "butt hat", which is vastly superior in every way.

    I am looking at failing another class, Drawing as Comunication, the usual shitty art class affair, the work for it was so brain numbing and trite that I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

    My Architecture History class may pass, and the teacher hinted it would, I don't know if she has the marks or if she just guessed, but that's good.

    I know I passed my other mandatory class, which is ballin

    Well, my career path took a nose-dive because I worked in a satellite office. The timing could not be worse for finding a job in my industry, so I'm stuck in contract-land for a while.

    My bills are paid but I'm no longer covered under health insurance, which is in no way, shape, or form, cool. At all.

    Dude that sucks, I remember you mentioning it might happen a week or so ago.

    In all fairness, from what you told me earlier, there was probably a bit more you could've done to prevent getting to this stage. You know what I'm talkin' bout dawg.

    We had a family friend ina car accident, family friend being a 14 year old girl who has practically been adopted by my mum.

    Her grandpa died, and we though her dad would too. She lived with us for 2 weeks, and I just couldn't do any work in this time.

    I never really recovered from.

    I was measuring some godforsaken block of toilets the city away during a major thunderstorm for this assignment, scrawling measurements up my arm

    but nope:
    "some good drawings; no urban element; no research; no section; no understanding of basic structure"

    I couldn't find a scrap of evidence on the net or in the library to certify this thing even existed. I of course chose to do the difficult building because I knew everyone would be doing the others. there was nothing on google images and I searched madly for anything on it. I emailed the guys who built it and simply didn't get an email back. (I am tempted to send them an emailing explaining that I have now failed the class due to a lack of information on the building, but I just don't feel that vindictive"

    And it's not that I don't understand basic structure, it's that the building was a block of copper clad concrete and I didn't say much about it.


    (this wasnt the trite and uninteresting course though, that was the artfag class, the optional elective)

    the best way to avoid a trite and uninteresting course is to fail it so you have to take it all over again

    this is a good plan right here

    Don't mean to sound harsh, but it's times like that it's good to have a backup plan.

    It really, really sounds like you kinda left this assignment or whatever to the last minute and didn't allow for contingencies.

    Yes, one doesn't usually plan for things like family/friend deaths, but I told you that if the case is severe enough, you can get extensions/exemptions.

    I completely screwed up a test in a class earlier this semester, and got about 48%. (to be fair, the pass rate for the class was 53%, but still)

    It's required for next semesters courses, so you are completely screwed if you fail.

    So I prepared for the 2nd test by writing an 80 page summary of everything that was going to possibly be on it, read it over and over and over, and got a 95%.

    Now it's just the final coming up. 3 tests for the whole semester, the only way to get your marks.

    Yeah, things happened, but I should have been proactive.

    I really left everything up to myself, and when someone tried to help, or I knew someone who could, I just never really went for the asssistance.

    well, this way I'll be 22 when I leave, which isn't too bad an age I guess.

    @rane: Not really an alcoholic, it's a pretty casual thing, 2-3 beers every few nights, and every month or so I go on a banger of a night

    Basically what I am trying to tell you TBH, is that my perception of you is that you are not pro-active enough when it comes to getting shit done in your life, based on several things you have posted about in the history I have known you here.

    Sounds harsh, but that's the beauty of being an impartial Internet Observer, I can tell you what I perceive about you and you can take it or leave it.

    Sometimes you gotta grab shit by the balls in order to get it done. You don't seem to do that.

    edit: yes see you just pointed out the issue before I even posted it myself. Be Proactive.

    One thing that I have learned over about the last six years of my education is that when I fail something, it's almost certainly my own fault. I resat chemistry three times and only got a good mark the third time because I knuckled down and put the effort in.

    So I guess what I'm trying to say TBH is that unless you have extenuating circumstances, then you need to pull your finger out and put in the effort if you want to succeed. Your education depends on noone but yourself.
