This semester I am taking too many classes. i am in my second semester of university and i am taking FRE 520, a graduate French literature class. i've found that it's not the french part that is hard for me, it is the fact that we have to write two twenty minute presentations and a 20 page paper and read 6 books, finishing one every week and a half. it's impossible. i don't have time or the skill of literature analysis to keep up with this class or pass any of the tests or homeworks. this class only meets once a week but every time tuesday rolls around it ruins my day that i have to go to this class. i missed the drop period because you only get the first week to drop the class and i didnt know until the second class how overwhelmed i was going to be. i have emailed my adviser asking if she can get me out of the class but i don't know if i can or not.

this is going to ruin my entire semester. it's too much work and i'm starting to feel very depressed again. yesterday i had some very suicidal thoughts and my boyfriend stayed up with me all night because i couldnt sleep and i couldnt stop crying and laying in bed alone in my dorm room was awful.


i have three classes today and then have to go straight to work until 9pm so i have no relaxation time at all. i'm so overwhelmed. shakehead

voix - you CAN withdraw from the class. You are taking a lot of classes. If you ever are questioned about it, you can simply say, "My course load was too heavy to devote the time I needed to this class."

This WILL NOT ruin your semester.

Most colleges, you get 1/2 the semester to withdraw. Sometimes you can time it so you can get a tuition refund too. :)

Don't let yourself worry about it. Force yourself to be rational and get the facts. It can be scary, but you will feel so much better!

You CAN skip a class to get this settled! It will be OK!
