For the past few months I have been taking statistics. It has been super stressful and time consuming, and there were a lot of tears! I put a lot of effort into the assignments and tests, but no matter how hard I tried, it just wouldn’t click. It took me forever to complete problems, and I had trouble getting assignments in on time. When the time came for the final, I realized that I would have to basically ace it to pass the class.
Recently, I started watching Grey’s Anatomy, and I’ve been obsessed. I like how Dr. Grey is able to still work in the hospital and focus on her patients, even when she is clearly having problems. In the episode I watched yesterday Meredith found out she had a half-sister, and even had to help treat her. She did that without letting her personal issues get in the way. Granted she did have a meltdown when she was finished, but those are allowed every once in a while. J When I was getting ready to take my finals yesterday, I posted a photo to my Instagram and Facebook. It was a picture of a notebook that said “Meredith Grey didn’t become a surgeon and get to marry Dr. McDreamy by not studying.” I knew my final wouldn’t be fun, and there was a good chance I would fail the class, but I decided to do my best and hope it was enough. Maybe my teacher would find a way to let me pass because he knew I’d been working hard? I could always hope!
Yesterday I finished my final, and I ended up failing the class. I took me a while to finish the final, and I had a breakdown with tears in the middle of it. Actually, that happened quite a few times while I was taking statistics…luckily it was an online class. But every time I got stressed or was having a meltdown I would text or message two of my friends. They both talked to me until I was able to calm down. Sometimes they would hang out with me just so that I could take a break and forget the stress of the class. If it were not for them I would not have been able to make it through this class. I do have to take it over again, but I know that I can get through it and that it will all be worth it in the end. If there’s one thing I’ve learned from Dr. Grey, it’s that I can accomplish whatever I set my mind to. This is just part of the path to becoming what I want to be and living the life I want to live.
