I had spent the previous 5 hours writing a 13 page paper which is due at the end of the day, today. I had been performing terribly in this course, and was starting to wonder if i had any hope of passing. I decided to take a break and check my odds of passing. the numbers said that I had gotten exactly 263 points out of 455, this paper was worth 150 points. No sweat right? The I realized that I had not factored in that the teacher had not included the total points possible for paper. Doing the addition in my head, I plugged it back in to my calculator, and realized that even if got a perfect score on the paper, I would still fail the course. I had already failed this course once before, and due to a long history at a special needs (not special ed, I mean kids with anger issues, dyslexia, aspergers and ADD/ADHD) school with the most condescending, teachers on the planet, I had a sort of inferiority complex which led me to need to do everything perfectly just so I could prove it to myself(It got me into George washington university, so it can't be all bad, right?). What followed was a hour long freakout that resulted in me considering suicide, smashing the touchscreen of my phone, pulling down a shower curtain, being rude to a crisis intervention person, etc. Anyway, the crisis intervention person calmethed my little white ass down, and got me to accept my fate. Then I looked back at my calculator. "wait a minute" I said, looking at the screen. I had done the addition in my head, and my head math said that 455+150 =705. oops. Turns out I'm not going to fail after all.
