OH my gosh,
Guys GREAT news, my petition was granted!!!
I am beyond happy!
I attended a petition meeting this morning. I had an idea of what they were going to ask me; “Why should we let you retake the class?”
I was a nervous wreck. I was a professionally nervous looking wreck.
My meeting was at 1100 I got there around 1040 and I waited. I pretended to read a magazine, I was so nervous I didn’t even notice I was holding it upside down till I was called in. There were five women around what seemed to be a conference table. I sat in the very front. They all were very pleasant and introduced themselves.
And still….I wanted to cry, beg on my knees for mercy…
No, but seriously I wanted to cry. Sure enough they asked me why they should consider my petition, and what I would do different. I answered them with the truth. I was also asked why I had I failed my class. I explained the situation, I simply got to overconfident….and I went into detail.
Anyhow, only about two of them asked me questions. I was told that they would let me know by the end of the week.
Great, by then I’ll be dead…..but I thanked them for their time and wished them a wonderful day. As I left the office, the lady at the desk told me she was wishing me the best. Those were kind words. I love kind words.
Sure enough almost as soon as I stepped out of the office where the meeting was held I burst into tears. That lasted about 3 seconds, I mentally slapped myself- you know when Edna, the designer from The Incredibles slaps Elastic Girl “Put-Yourself-Together!!!!”
Yea, that was me.
I was just so stressed, and after that little burst of emotion I felt better.
I went to work, then I went home…I checked my email to find this lovely title in my inbox
I started to freak out “they said by the end of the week!” I opened the email and it read the following:
Please find the results of your petition(s) attached. If you have any further questions about this decision please contact Student Services at 602-000-0000
What would you think if you got that up there!?
I almost cried, I opened the attachment and by the end of the paper the approved box was marked
I going to do it you guys, I am still in Nursing School,
I got to say that that scared me right into studying (& cutting my work hours). I have been doing very well so far. I definitely learned my lesson. Don’t worry, You will not hear about me failing any other course ever again =)
