If you follow me on twitter, you would have heard a great deal of complaining last week
about an essay I made incredibly hard work over writing.
To be fair, I did not have clear undisturbed writing time (two four year olds anyone?)
but still I made awful hard work of it.
But finally around Saturday lunchtime I finished the thing and breathed a sigh of relief.
And immediately began studying for my Treaty exam on Wedneday,
thinking I'll start my Coms essay on Monday.
This morning I rocked up to the library after Tutorials and switched on my computer
and realised I had missed a 300 word assignment due last Friday night.
I was not happy.
I faffed about for a bit and then shot off to the comms lecture
and after this I asked the Lecturer for an extension.
I loose a mark, but I can still submit it.
I quickly re-arranged my schedule and whipped home
and I've just submitted it with 8 minutes to spare before I pick up Annie. Whew.
Studying full time plus kids is a real challenge.
I guess dropping one mark is not the end of the world is it.
Lesson learned: check the schedule every single week.
