Had to take a WF for freakin jazz styles...hope this doesn't mess me up for grad school in a few years. Why? Why does my brain thwart my desire to do well? Why am I not a 4.0 student? I could be! I hate this...hate hate hate hate it!

A teacher i really like and respect now probably thinks I'm a giant screwball.

Fail fail fail...Please God, don't let this screw me up eternally for grad schools...Can Ijust do this few years over again? Please?
I'm smarter than this...I'm better than this...

I happen to be a jazz head
Any questions? I can try to help you if you like, let me know. E mail addy at home is giazz@comcast.net. You are not a screw ball, great book is Jazz in America, and the Ken Burns DVD series about Jazz.

Hope this helps,

Re: I happen to be a jazz head

Hoe things will improve... I wasn't a 4.0 GPA type of student, and I still came out good when I graduated in May.

First, what's a WF? I assume it's like an incomplete? Whatever the case, it certainly doesn't constitute ultimate failure. It seems to me that you are putting too much pressure on yourself. Just do the best you can, and leave the rest. A 4.0 isn't all its cracked up to be, and sometimes the price of obtaining it is too high. Be gentle with yourself, that's really important, much more important than a 4.0 in the long run. *hugs*

A WF is a "withdrawl fail" grade. I found out yesterday that it wil go away after I pass the class. Woot.

Aw, that's awful. Is there anyway you can reason with the teacher and explain what's going on right now? I'm not sure exactly what a WF means; is it like a withdrawal from a course? Here, at least, having one of those on your transcript isn't a bad thing. Sorry for the ignorance, and I'm sorry this is happening to you.

I found out that as long as I retake the course the WF will go away. So I'm not as stressed as I was. thank you.

grad school and grades
You are far too hard on yourself! I got into grad school with a 2.6! Most schools look for 3.0 or so. Not worrying so much about being perfect will tremendously help you to be free to do your best. Otherwise your worry will keep you from doing as well as you can!

it's gonna be fine
Hey babe. Briley, you are definitely going to get in anywhere you apply. One WF isn't going to affect that. I think I have like four so far... Plus lots of other unsavory things on my transcript, but whatever. Sometimes shit happens and you just can't handle every single class. You are NOT a screw-up and your professor DOES NOT think that. Trust me. Professors understand these things. I used to be so paranoid that my professors would hate me because I absolutely suck as a student, but really, they don't take things personally like that. They care about their students, yes, but mostly they understand that sometimes things don't work out. It's going to be okay. You're going to be okay. Remember, try to cut back on the negative thinking! You're an amazing, smart, caring person! Probably one of the best students they'll ever have! No one hates you. Also also also: intelligence has (almost) nothing whatsoever to do with how well you do in school. I would like to offer myself as a prime example. Haha.

You should call me. Again. I love you!
