I screwed up.

Big time.

I fell behind massively on my college work last semester and I got an extension for March 15th. This time has come and gone, I haven't handed in the first semester's work and now I have missed the deadline for my second semester as well. I'm terrified i'm going to get kicked off the course. Maybe I deserve to be, but it's not that I haven't done any work at all, I just fell behind and struggled badly to catch up.

As usual, for the last 3 weeks I just buried my head in the sand and hoped it would go away, but it didn't - and now i'm in deep trouble.

I'm sick of my attitude. I'm going to go in tomorrow and tell it straight to my tutors, tell them that I was cowardly and foolish and ask, if not beg them for one last chance to prove myself. I'm just really, really worried I pushed it too far this time...

Edit: I'm going to bed now, I hope everything will be ok...

Well, not so much the forums alone, but my whole Avatar obsession in general.

take a step back. look at it this way just do the work as it comes or that needs to be done. dont think about failing just do what you need to do. thinking about it will only stress you out and will not do any good.
even if you do fail its not the end of the world, it happens to everyone its normal. you cant always hit a perfect game. just make sure if it does happen that you learn from it.
but im sure u will do fine!!

First, what's up dude!

Second, I agree with this. Get some perspective. Step back a few, deep breath, and gauge where you need to go and what you need to do. Then, do it.

I have issues getting work done also, I am bad at procrastinating and bad at getting preoccupied very easily. So having these forums to jump to whenever on the web doesnt help LOL!

For me it helps to make somewhat of a daily schedule, for instance, tell yourself that today I must get X done, for me sometimes it is finish up some homework and a bit of studying. I will make myself do everything I list before I go to bed, than if I am up really late I attempt to learn from that mistake and get started earlier. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesnt LOL.

You can do it ma tsmukan, you can get though this... I know how this must feel, classes and all. Like people said, take a deep breath, take a step back, take a look at the big picture; what are your options? What can you do to get back into the game?

You've got our support ma tsmukan

even if you flunk out... remember, Einstein was a flunk-out too! And Thomas Jefferson never went to any college... and Nikola Tesla died penniless and insane!!!

No matter how bad you screw up, you're in good company

Haha, that's a good way of looking at it

But yeah, I'm basically gonna repeat what everyone else said. Relax, take a step back, get some perspective, and start fixing it.

And taking responsibility for your actions and being honest is pretty much the best thing you can do about the late work. If it works, awesome. If not, well that sucks, but there really isn't anything you can do about it at this point.

You'll be fine. If getting kicked out of a college course is the worst thing that happens in your life then you are very lucky

Good luck... I know first hand how bad procrastination can be... Earlier this week I did a piece of coursework in one day flat, 2 days before the deadline

My advice is to get off the computer for two weeks. And create a schedule.
