So anyways, we were going over my Ling major worksheet and updated it to include everything I've done so far. And, oddly enough, my advisor starting writing in the grades I got in each of the classes, too. All A's and B's. Then the quarter of hell: two C's and the lapsed I. Have I been stuck there ever since? Have I been beating my head against a wall at UCSC for no reason? For an entire year now!?
In retrospect, the job I took last summer might really have been a bad idea. It was good money, but it was also a lot of stress and didn't really let me decompress enough to get back on the horse. I was only in school for Winter and Spring quarters this year, but they were both academic hell.
