Ok, I have to stop lying to myself...
...it's time I dropped Arabic.

Last year was great, fun, instructive.

But this year it's just going way to fast for me, and most things are over my head. I guess that's what happens when you're the only non-native speaker in the class. Even though it's Arabic AS A SECOND LANGUAGE, FUCKERS!!!

I just came out of a midterm that was brutal, horrible. I think I failed it. If not, then I cut it pretty close. And the thing is, it was an easy midterm. I mean, I know it was. I could see that she was handing us marks on a silver platter. I could tell. It was a gimme. But I still did shitty as hell. I took the whole hour and couldn't finish it.

It's obvious I don't have what it takes for this course. Maybe I should go take some lower level course somewhere. If I can find it. Although the sucky thing is that this is supposed to be a direct continuation of Arabic as a Second Language I, which I took last term and got a B+.


I've never dropped a course before in my life.

I suck.

Don't feel any shame, it's a very natural thing. Me, Ms. Overachiever-by-a-bare-thread herself had to drop senior physics in high school. I also stopped taking Japanese (I had french to fall back on), which was filled with readers and writers of Chinese, and if you know anything about the character sets, that's a major freaking advantage.

You seem like an overtly bright character. Don't sweat it. On to bigger things.
