Taste of Failure

So today I was given a short swift kick in the nuts!

The results of my maths exams came online and I didn’t get the result I was hoping for I scored 29 out of 100 on my open book exam and then only 9/100 on my closed book exam.

But, I was not the only one who failed the majority of the first year students failed to. We were thrown in at the deep end and the maths tutoring wasn’t good enough, we had such a short amount of time to learn the topics which were not easy. As a group, we were stung hard.

I am hoping that there will be a resit in June/July time as if there is not it means having to only do maths as a subject in September and will not be able to start the second year. which will mean 2 hours of lessons for 3 months and not being able to progress until the following September.

I really feel like I have let myself down by not passing this exam and my assignment I do not even know what my score was as a previous lecturer uploaded a different file and I could not upload my assignment. I have been asking for it to be fixed for a couple of weeks now.

This has really made me feel quite upset about it all. it is making me wonder if I should even bother on this course now. Which is a shame as I am really enjoying the subjects.

What does not help matters is that I could not go into lectures today as I have been in a lot of pain in the spine and the medication I was awake most of last night due to it.  I did, however, get something to sweeten the mood.

Out of boredom I put £40 onto an online fruit machine and won £1089 this kind balances out the bad news with the good.

I have notes to catch up on today’s lectures so I do not fall behind with workloads. I have assignments due in throughout March so my aim is to get them finished long before them as I now really only have 4 weeks until the first one is due.

Although I failed miserably in maths I am determined to get decent marks on my future projects. This course has been a dream come true I do just hope that I can get it finished in time!

What I would do to be able to smoke a joint right now.
