things will get better.

May 13, 2011

that's what I keep telling myself at least.
things lately haven't been going so great. 
I was taken by surprise when a professor
 of mine decided she would take her 
sour attitude out on me and give me a grade
 I did not earn in her class this spring semester.
 She exclaimed I did not get the grade
 she posted, yet it reflects on my final grades.
 how silly of her to think I'm so stupid. 
 so essentially, my financial aid has been cut
 and I may not be able to attend school
 this summer or fall due to a woman 
 who evidently graduated with a master's degree
in clown school and
 who thinks my education is a joke. 
 When is enough, enough with professors?
 when can a student have had enough, stand up 
and flip the bird in rightful mind.
 which is what I totally want to do, right now. 
 pardon my language. 

It takes a lot to piss me off. 
It doesn't take much to worry or stress me.
 I feel like because I'm the student
 and she's the professor, that she 
thinks she can treat me with disrespect. 
I am a grown woman. 
I am a student earning my spot to be in
the same position she is in 
right now, teaching people. 
and I do not limit this only to professors but
to the staff of UNCG that I have encountered as well- 
I have had such an inconsistent and 
unpleasant run in with a lot of the people 
 who call themselves Spartan Alumni
 and faculty. It hurts when a person
 of high authority can put you down
 or throw you down because, what?
 I look 16. I'm entering my senior year. 
I make damn good grades.
AND I DON'T need to justify to these people, my life. 
especially when they don't give a crap.

I just have done my part.
I have done all I can do.
I have exhausted my options 
and now I wait. I wait to hear back
 from financial aid who kindly enough
pays for my entire university education and a little more.
 I am grateful for the aid I get semester after semester. 
The thing is, I was all set and ready to receive my check, 
ready to start the summer semester
 and now because she entered my wrong grade in
 and late might I add, I get nothing until my appeal 
 is heard and I can go back to living my normal life again.

I have some things that did make me happy 
this week and kept me sane. of course I'll share!

 my goodies from Beatrice over at sew bea!
 she's incredibly sweet and this made my day.

 spicy crab roll with cream cheese and avocado
I want more. yum.

 these always make me happy.
 delicious dark chocolate & espresso.

 beloved kindle and sparkling pomegranate blueberry juice. 
sinking into a good book relaxes me.

 these munchkins
 make every day better.

 our snack every day.
 sometimes frozen, yummm.

silly billies.

 surprised faces!

 kisses anyone?

 puppy face, I mean really?

whole wheat piccolini-
the kids love this stuff.

 roasted side veggies.
 another munchkin favorite.
 baby garlic cheesy bread
 to die for.
finished product.
 pasta with cheesy garlic bread
 one of the munchkins bowls. 
 we eat the veggies right out of the pan!


  1. I'm sorry you had some rough times..but those pictures of the kiddies and the pictures of that yummy food look so good!!!

  2. Mmmm, yummy stuff! Sorry to hear you're having a rough time with UNCG sounds like some yucky business! Love you!

  3. it surely is, thank you em. it means a lot to have people who care and support me <3 love you too boo.

  4. Your kids are adorable and look like little characters - ha! The roasted veggies look yummy, and my kids would love that baby garlic bread. Have a good day!

  5. This makes even me frustrated to read. Can you not petition it at all. Its crazy that she could get away with that.

    On another now.. All that food looks divine.

  6. Hope everything works out for the good :)

    Glad you loved your stuff!

  7. Melissa- they are little characters :) our munchkins would get a long well, it sounds like they like some of the same stuff!

    Bevin- I have been up to the school over a dozen times already trying to fix this, I have emailed the woman, I have contacted every possible person- no results. I am being told that the work I produced all semester, cannot be seen and that I have to produce that work again if I want a grade. are you kidding me? I spent 8 weeks working my butt off on work that took up a lot of my spare time. I just am at a loss for words and really don't know what to do at this point. It is very frustrating. Thanks for supporting that love!

    Bea- girl, you made me so flipping happy- I got that package and I smiled from ear to ear. I am making a huge pitcher of iced mango black tea today!! I'll post pictures soon <3

  8. Eek, it sounds like you're have a tough time... I hope it all works out for you. Perfect timing with that package, though, huh? :)

  9. I'm sorry you've had trouble with your professor. Hope things work out. Your children are adorable. Following from the Alexa hop. Would love for you to visit my blog at

  10. Any time, my dear! You know I'm here for ya!
