Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I've been struggling with depression (I'm bipolar) for a while. It's gotten really bad lately. I've reached out and am working on Getting Better.
However, this depression means that I fell way behind on schoolwork, and it is beginning to snowball. I am catching up but it is hard.
I talked to someone at the school (I'm registered with mental health services) and they are making arrangements, but the woman I spoke to was extremely surprised that I was mentally ill and taking a full courseload. She strongly recommended I drop a course.
(Money isn't really an object here. My parents are paying for my schooling and are prepared for setbacks.)
I am taking a year long course on Rock and Popular Music. I'm not too interested in it. It's surprisingly hard. I've missed a lot of class and am way behind in it.
Should I buck up, put the effort in, and try to catch up, or should I drop the course and focus on my essentials?
