"your assignment has been submitted after the deadline, your tutor does not have to mark it"
To say I was upset was an understatement (think hissy fit, tears and 'woe is me' wailing). It was my fault, it should have been in the day before but I had so much going on. I emailed my tutor (Joe has agreed to mark it - he's a realist, he understands that real life, kids, work and study is full on and sometimes life gets in the way) and waited. Then I decided this was useless - would I still be able to pass even if this essay was a 0? The answer was YES. So I calmed down, disappointed but pragmatic. My tutor is going to mark it, but it was a life lesson, try to reframe and look at reality. So yes, I am suddenly up for this assignment. I have set my own cut off date (it's not due until 7th October but I also have an exam on the 9th October). Next Tuesday. It has to be done by then. I have no doubt I will spend the weekend and, Monday and Tuesday in a blind panic!
The 3 good things:
- I have set my own deadline and am attempting to get ahead
- I have exercised every day for the last 10 days
- I am going to LONDON on th 10th October - wheeeeeeee
Where I need to do better:
- I ate chocolate yesterday and one of the cupcakes I made the kids. Still, it was only one and they did look like this
