I’m not one to make excuses, and I’m also not one who looks for leniency, but I know the value of transparency – so here it is.
The last 5 days have been psychologically and emotionally hard for me. I’ve had to deal with a lot of emotionally draining situations that have been a huge distraction for me. On top of that I got a phone call during class on Thursday that my dad had to go in for surgery. It was so out of the blue. Fortunately he is okay and is now at home with us again, albeit needing a lot of love and care.
I know that tough times are par for the course, but I just wanted to let you know the space I am in, just incase I seem distracted or as if I am “slacking”. I do take my course seriously and I’m not one to slack off – but I will admit that I am having a hard time focusing on my work the past few days.
