Week 5, Day 1

Monday. Terrible day. Probably worst one of my college experience so far. I woke up and knew I had lots to do and I told myself it would be a good, productive day. It was productive but also included an almost-meltdown and an actual one. I had a test in my Computer Science class and I thought I’d just breeze through it. I was almost done but the program wouldn’t compile because I had one missing element and I was so frustrated and concerned with getting a good grade to make up for my bad homework grades previously, that I almost cried in the computer lab during the test. I got most of the program finished and went to my next class then home before I went to more computer tutoring. I was not in the mood to be involved in my classes that day and when I got home I just let it all out and cried while on the phone with my mom. I am grateful for the option I have to be able to call my mom whenever. I’m even more grateful that she is so loving and understanding to help me cope with whatever I may be complaining to her about. I wasn’t exactly complaining but I was so afraid of failure that I was just freaked out. I’m glad I could communicate with my mom and express my concerns and fears so that she could console me and help me get through my terrible day. Afterwards I went to do laundry and felt better. My day got better when my friend offered to go make a snowman. We had fun rolling the snow around and searching for rocks and twigs to make the snowman’s face and hands. It was good to get my mind off of the project and the test from earlier and just have fun. I then went back home and had another friend graciously accept to help me with my computer project at 11:30 at night which we finished. it was a huge weight off my shoulders! I am so blessed to have friends that are willing to help me and also to have family that care so much for me. I was truly blessed to have a bad day turned around by the good people who surround me 🙂
