Ever cry like an overgrown baby?

by TheAngstyPoet on October 8, 2012   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr

I made one if the stupidest mistakes in my college career. I used profanity in a document title that I had to submit online. On top if that the assignment didn't go through. Then my professor chewed me out for bring late and that apparently I make snarky comments in class. Oh and I thought basic composition was going so well. What bothered me the most was that she complimented me while chewing me out saying I had such potential. That's fabulous but I still feel like crap. It was all I could do not to cry while walking home. The happy ending to this story isn't that my roomie cheered me up and made me feel better.
