Last year I didn't do too well in school. My not doing well was a combination of being in a major that did not suit me, and the fact that I suffered from depression in winter and spring terms.
The depression struck in the last few weeks of winter term, and I did very little (if any) homework after it hit. For my music classes I had already done enough that I was able to scrape by passing those classes despite failing one of my final exams. But as for my non-music class, LAC 301? I failed it.
LAC 301 is a class that is required for all Marylhurst students who do not already have a college degree. It's basically an introduction to the school and it helps students learn how to learn. And because it is a required class I knew I would have to take it again.
I was dreading it.
Last term, a year after I had initially failed the class, I re-took it and this time I passed it. And I am quite happy with myself.
I have my first class of spring term today, and I don't have to worry about LAC 301 any more.
