QUESTION: Help! I just missed my final exam, what do I do? I had the wrong date, did NOT think it would be Saturday! I've been on the edge the entire term because of nonstop stomping and pounding on my ceiling leading to anxiety attacks and no sleep. I did briefly mention this to my physician but have not really seen any specialists for this. I already had to get a note from counscelling to my prof to re-schedule my mid-term and they were reluctant to do shit because I wasn't seeing them on an ongoing basis (because I didn't see the point in talking things out, when there was no solution to unsolvable problems) My prof made it very clear that we needed to be severely ill to accommodate for the exam. I don't want to be seen as the type of person who is constantly making excuses, but this is really taking its toll on me. There is pounding on ceiling every time the elephant walks, moves, and I'm pretty sure he's playing basketball indoors. I'm moving soon but the entire situation has left me drained everyday, barely enough to function.

  1. what? You don't need to see a specialist. God your generation is so entitled. Stop expecting to be coddled. What you are experiencing is very typical in a student's life. You fucked up and forgot something big. Your neighbors are inconsiderate. It happens to everyone. Suck it up and move on.

  2. Why didn't you just go upstairs and talk to him about the noise? Talking to your landlord might've helped too.

    1. I've fainted due to overexhaustion and my anxiety issues have gotten far more severe due to this. Do you honestly think I havent tried talking to them? @ 1 Stop transferring your feelings onto others, k? Just cuz nobody cares about your opinion, doesnt mean you have to lash out at random people on the internet. And its cuddle not coddle, little Piggie :/

  3. Honestly I don't think there's much you can do.
    You messed up, and trust me it happens more than you might think.
    I failed a course as a result of missing a midterm and guess what? I had to take it again.

    Double and triple check your exam times.

    1. Do NOT do that, that's awful.
      Besides, they will ask for a death certificate and/or note from the doctor who oversaw said dying family member.
      Your illness won't check out, if you dealt with it all term and made the midterm and whatnot then there's no excuse for the final. Try talking to the prof but otherwise you might be out of luck on this one.

    2. If you can't fake it, make it real.
