My clock read 11:49. Then it hit me, I had 2 audio recordings for my language class due at 11:55. Nice, huh?
Why 11:55 and not 11:59?
Naturally I swore for a miracle that my laptop would start-up quickly. Internet connection was the worst. Window loaded up quick, yet the intended address page couldn't be downloaded. Internet connection icon was positive. Deception. Lies! I had re-connect a cable from my linksys router.
Fuck, the only sensible thing to do...invest in a time-planner.
I've just been running around my college's campus. Today, I truly believed I had my final exam for Ilokano at 9:45-11:45. The previous night, I dutifully finished my study guide worksheets .
I take the bus to campus and the commute takes about 1.5 hours at the most. So, I woke up at 7, don't get out of bed until 7:20, scarfed down breakfast, and then headed for the bus stop. The bus came at 8:10 and I arrived at school at 9:10, woohoo I thought to myself, some free time to study. I walked up to my class to find complete strangers and another one walking into the class.
I'd assumed the exam was held in the same classroom the damn class was held the whole semester, apparently not. So I think, what the hell do I do!? I briskly walk to my the office building of my prof. I didn't have his cell number and I din't have any of my classmate's numbers (note to self, in the future, do so!). I ran up four flights of stairs and I found a bulletin board with his offfice number, I dialed the number and then I heard the damn phone go off nearby, no one answered. Then, I remembered the class talking about Saunders building so I ran over there. I didn't have a specific classroom in mind so I waited on the ground floor hoping to see any classmates or my prof walk by. Nope.
So then I walk to a library on campus (the very same one where I am writing this blog) and I send a frantic email to my prof stating alongside the lines:
"I don't know what class the exam is held. Another class was taking an exam in Moore 228 and I called your office but you'd already left."
(In my haste, I forgot to mention I accidentally deleted the email he sent about the exam schedule.)
I decided to stand-by the comp. I refreshed the page every minute, annoyingly enough the inbox rearranged to set the earliest emails in the front so I had to rever it back. I fliped through my inbox pages waiting for a message to come. Finally, a new message.
The exam is on Thursday at 9:45-11:45 in Moore 228. If you want to take the make-up, the exam will be tomorrow at 4:30-6:30 at Webster 115."
Oh, the f-ing irony.
1. Be more cautious about emails I delete, especially if they contain the final schedule of the last few weeks of class (including when & where the final is)! Also, ask the prof or a classmate to resend it.
2. Get a classmate's number. In fact, get several.
3. Ask someone about the final exam info before you get all stressed out about nothing.
