Warning, this is sort of a rant but I'm so upset, I have to talk to somebody.
I'm a college student doing art, which I love. I love being at college, I love being inspired and being creative, I'm just so happy being at college, but I'm also seriously behind in my work. I had two operations at the end of 2008, one the laporoscopy which found my endo and the second op was for surgery to remove my adhesions, and that lost me quite a lot of time. True, I went into college the first DAY after my first op, and five days after the second op I went back in since the pain was worse for the last op.
However about a fortnight after my second operation I go and collapse at college form exhaustion (clever me) and am strictly ordered by the doc to take it easy and take some time off, which I did for around two weeks.
I tried to catch up with my work but a couple of months thanks to a college epidemic end up with a glandular infection and have to take another two weeks off!
Now i'm extremely behind, m effort has been rated as poor, and I'm clinging on by the skin of my teeth to get my work done.
But guess what makes it all unbearable? The other students in my class who refuse to grow up and think they can live off their parents money forever! A few people in my class keep wagging it, taking time off, and only coming in when they can be bothered to get up. Three people actually took about a month off for NO REASON, they admitted they just "couldn't be bothered" to come in and they seem to get away with it all whilst I'm suffering, despite having a genuine reason! Another lad refused to coem in for three weeks because a tutor told him off for being late! and now he's back, off the hook whilst I get poor effort marks, even when I dragged myself into college with stitches!
It's just so upsetting, I know it shouldn't get to me but it's hard to work in an environment when nobody around you even cares about passing or failing.
sorry, It's just getting to me real bad.
