No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Well I'm not doing too much better. This has been a very stressful week. I finished my English paper but I had to put the algebra to the back burner in order to finish. I present in front of my English Lit class today, oh joy! Then I can focus on math. My test is Tuesday and that gives me very little time to catch up & prepare! I'm really stressed about the algebra. I currently have a 4.0 and algebra is the only class that might change that. I got and A in Pre-Algebra in the spring and and an A- in Elementary Algebra this past summer! So why am I finding it so had to do math this semester? Maybe because there isn't enough time in the day. I don't know I can keep up with it all. I found out that the deadline to withdraw is Nov 13. & I'm seriously considering it. The new job hasn't even begun in full force yet, so far we have a weekly meeting and some work from home. If I can manage the math I feel like I'm better off getting it out of the way now, instead of when I'm working more hours. The new job's hours will be increasing until eventually full time. Maybe if I can focus really well I can pull it off??? I hope so! I just want to stop worrying about it!
With all this going on I've not managed to track past breakfast most days. I checked in on the scale & it is the same. My husband is practically begging me to drop math. I feel like the smart thing to do would be to stick it out until Nov 13 & then withdraw if my grade is bad. This way if I had to re-take it, all but the last month would be review. However my sanity is most important. So I will have to see how things unfold. This really isn't the best week to use to judge because the English project was huge this week, and was not the typical assignment. It counts for 25% of my grade!
So far in Algebra I have had 1 quiz, which I got a 78. Quizzes count 20%, Tests 60% and final exam 20% Other than that I don't have much to go by. I started the test review and struggled with the first 2 which should have been really easy. I feel like a switch went off in my head that is blocking my math sensibility for goodness sake! I did get the student solution book to help with the homework which I haven't had a chance to look at for more that 5 minutes.
I really don't know what to do :( I guess I just gotta wait & see
