I've been going to school for two semesters now and I just realized we get progress reports. Say, what? I didn't even know where to find them in the system until today. Despite me emailing or discussing in-person with each professor, two of the five professors had "complaints". Now mind you, from the first day of classes, I was very open with each professor that I was in the middle of a custody case and quickly approaching the final hearing. I went to class every day until the week before, of, and after the court hearing. I went a few days each of those weeks, but not a whole week. But, I was on top of letting my professors know what was going on.
First of all, my Biology professors complaints were that I had poor attendance, I needed improvement, and I had missed assignments. Poor attendance? Okay, I'll give you that, but they knew each one. I didn't ever not show up to class and not email or have some type of discussion with them. The only assignment I missed in his class was a test, which he told me I didn't need to make up because the final replaces that grade. Since that was my only grade that wasn't extra credit, how in the hell can you tell me I "need improvement"? Based upon what? You haven't tested me. F.U.C.K.O.F.F!
And of course, my Math professor had complaints. I "need improvement" and I have "missed assignments". Lets see here, I've only missed two things in her class. One was an online homework assignment, but there are thirty-two of those. One out of thirty-two when I have been to hell and back, doesn't seem like such a big deal. I still have an overall grade of 14.something out of 15 for that. The other thing I missed was a test, but again, her final replaces your lowest test grade, so there was no need for me to make it up. And she's the professor who gave me an F because I didn't had to pee.
I probably shouldn't take it personally, but I do. Each of my other professors had satisfactory reports with no complaints. It's not "because they had to". Even before the report was filed by my Math teacher, we had several discussions about whether or not I should continue on (I was worried about being able to focus the rest of the semester, not because I was failing.) and she told me to stick with it because she had no doubts about me.
I know I had a few rough weeks, but I am not fucking failing and I feel like these reports were not true. Also, to add salt to the wound, apparently if you get marks on your progress report you get an email from student success or some shit, and the dumb bitch emailed EVERYONE without blind copying them. Seriously?! What the fuck!? I sent her an email back. I should have replied-all, but I was trying to keep my cool.
Anyways, I know I should cut myself some slack, but those reports totally pissed in my cheerios.
