Good Afternoon Everyone

  1. Hi, I'm new here, I stumbled across this site, and decided to jump right in.

    I was actually looking for some people who can sympathize with me, or offer some words of wisdom.

    I found out today that I did not pass my 3rd of 4 semesters and I have to re-take it. I won't be graduating in December as planned and will have to stay behind while all my new friends, study partners and classmates move on. I am extremely bummed out. I feel embarrased, ashamed, and generally, like a failure. I really struggled this semester.

    I'm feeling torn between just saying forget it and quitting and going on. I don't want to be a quitter, but maybe I'm just not cut out for this.

    Anybody ever been where I am now?

    Believe the next year after you do and wiull qualify you wont remember that you finished late. I had to make up 3 months due to illness and was mortified as being a student longer than the other students in my year.
    It never did me any harm and in fact I did much better on career ladder in long run.
    I promise you it will be ok Dont give up

    Good luck to you. Welcome to the website.
