I checked my grades today, and I almost fell over when I saw that I ended up with an A- in the class I just finished. I did very well in the class up until the end when I turned in my final paper late and a few pages too short (due to extreme insomnia). I was really afraid that it would ruin my GPA, but apparently my professor saw that I was having a difficult time and decided to cut me some slack.
To be honest, even though the paper was late and not long enough, I worked really damn hard on it, and I feel that I really earned the A- in the class. I really appreciate the fact that my professor took my circumstances into account, because if he hadn't, I might have ended up with a B or something (which isn't really all that acceptable for grad school - or my program, at least).
So yeah, this week is shaping up to be much better than last week. Potential crappy GPA crisis averted!
