the power of a smilie

In an effort to keep people up-to-date on what's going, I'll jot down the newest development in my life.

I got a fifth week flag.

To start: a fifth week flag is given out when  a student (that's me)  is in danger of failing a class (18.02, my multivariable calculus class).

I anticipated getting three, but thus far I've only gotten one: 18.02. It was very formal and it was from my TA, Steve. I'm the first name he knew in the class and I know that we have a special bond. He asked me to reply with some time that we could get together, and I asked for tomorrow morning. I also went on to elaborate how I was feeling and I how I know that I am behind. He responded with "I"m sorry Chacha for the formality, as it WAS  formal email. Tomorrow at 9:30 sounds fine. Also, you'll be fine :) so don't worry."

I was really trying to give it up to God and I just needed a little something to cheer me up. Steve's response, with the smilie, really helped calm my nerves. Don't get me wrong, I"ve had stress back pain for the past week or so, and I am NOT sure what to do/think about this Midterm I have in math this thursday, but his response helped. Kind of silly, but true.

In any case, I need to go read...A LOT. so this is all for the moment. but yeah, I'm meeting with him tomorrow at 9:30. I know I can do this! Man, it's just hard to truly believe those words at times...but I will, I will.

Peace and love to all......  :)
