My Theology professor is such an asshole. It just shows that people who are more affiliated with religion, aren’t necessarily nice people.
I missed my exam because my physiological needs of sleep have forced my body to wake up really late missing the ring of the alarm clock. My professor didn’t allow me to have a make-up exam, which is unfair because that means I will get a bad grade in Theology EVEN THOUGH my grade will not fully represent my knowledge of Theology. I studied so hard, and accidentally fell asleep, but since it’s “not a good enough” excuse, well I just give up. I value my academics too much that I try to burn my eyebrows just to study all night for my exams. However, some people do not appreciate this.
I thought about the value of just one test. How will it affect me? I am able to live with my low self-concept by consistently getting above average grades. However, this Theology exam will forever stain my record. The grades I worked hard for in order to achieve. Without my grades, I have no medium of compensation. However, I just thought of all the people out there. Some people don’t go to school. Some people don’t get the grades they want. Some people flunk. It happens. This is life. I have contemplated about committing suicide, because I felt that without my academics, my life has no meaning. However, that’s life. Things happen for a reason, and if getting a really bad grade, possibly failing Theology is the way through which I may achieve something great in the future. Then let it be. That’s life.
Sometimes, I just have to be optimistic that even though things aren’t going well for me now, it will eventually. One test may affect me greatly, but I’ll just have to think about how to get back up because there will always be assholes in the world (professors, bosses, parents, “friends”, acquaintances, etc.). I’ll just have to live with that, and move on. Get back up, and prove to the world that I can do it. I can be better.
