And I cannot handle pressure

I should probably have just dropped the class when my world began to implode. But I didn't.

I had a drop deadline. Can't remember what it was just now. Didn't want to use it. Dropping the class costs a bit of cash. And I'm somewhat miserly. And stubborn. There was a possibility that I could still cope. I can't admit defeat when there is still a possibility of success, however slight.

I had until October 23 to decide to take an elect to re-enroll. But an ETR costs a sizeable amount of cash, and I wasn't willing to part with it. So I didn't take that option either. Instead, I opted to plough forward in a course that I am not understanding, for which I have no time, and in which I am woefully behind.

In short, I decided that my sanity was worth less than the course drop fee. So now I'm stuck with it.

What do they say again? There are none so blind as those who will not see?

J keeps stealing my post-it notes. How am I supposed to study effectively with no post-it notes, I ask you?

Visiting from SITS! You were above me. I have a picture of hubby sleeping on the couch covered in post-it notes. The kids even stuck them on his face and he didn't wake up! Have a great rest of the weekend!

One question...are those sticky notes or velveeta slices. Both seem totally understandable to me.

Hope you are able to get back on course with your class.

Who knew post-it notes could double as a blindfold?

What can I say... there aren't many things in life that's worth your sanity. But I'm stubborn too and can totally relate. I hope it all works out. (One way or another, I think it will. Today I am an optimist!)

Like Steenky, I thought those were two Kraft slices on J's head.

That was great! the post it funny and cute! But I'm proud that you are trudging will be happy you did when it's all said and done! :)


So, your kid is celebrating Halloween early by dressing up as a Post-It note? Genius.

Trish, you are describing a nightmare I have had for years, only after thinking I had dropped them, I found out I hadn't right before the final and all of a sudden, I'm naked. And those sticky notes are covering up adorable squishiness right now. Please remove promptly so we may adore. Thank you! :-)

april kennedy - Welcome! Post-its make the best toys, don't they?

steenky bee - They're sticky notes. But on closer inspection, I can see how they look like cheese slices.

Riayn - I hope so too. Thanks for the good wishes.

Yaya - Oh yes. They're totally multi-purpose.

WLS - I am glad you are an optimist today. I hope it lasts. And I hope some of it rubs off on me. :)

CDA - They do look like Kraft singles now that you mention it.

Shelle - I hope you're right. I know the goal is worthwhile. Just hard to remember that sometimes. It can get pretty tough to keep going.

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY - Best Halloween costume ever! (Except perhaps for Captain Dumbass's kids' airplane costumes from last year. Check out his site when you get a chance ... adorable photos to be seen.)

Sprite's Keeper - I have those nightmares all the time now. It's hard to keep it straight what's real and what's not. And I'll try to post some less obscured photos soon.
