God I am physically ill over this. I'm taking an online nutrition class this semester and we have to do weekly attendance postings to a discussion forum. The syllabus clearly states that missing 2 postings will result in removal from the course due to violation of the attendance policy, no exceptions. I missed one a few weeks ago, totally forgot - my fault. I was 18 minutes late on one tonight. Again, totally 100% my fault. The part that sickens me is that I have an A in this class. If she kicks me, I'll automatically get an F. I'll have to wait and see if she actually does kick me, but the wait is going to suck. She's not a lenient professor AT ALL but I can't help but hope for a little pity. It's in the policy and I understand that but ugh.
The F will have serious consequences for my nursing program and I might have to wait another semester to get in. Being 6 months behind because of 18 minutes is causing me to have a mental breakdown right now. I feel like I've really failed myself and its just killing me.
