Stop your whinging, Eston, here it comes

Definition of a bad day:

  • Going to sleep and deciding to finish your programming assignment in the morning is a bad idea. You will have mysterious errors you have never heard of and don't know how to fix on one assignment and the other will be completely unintelligible and you will be so confused you will give up and decide to hand it in late on the same day that you find out you got yet another 15/20 on a homework assigment in that class.
  • You will go to check out the results on your survey in order to do the write-up for the paper due tomorrow, only to find that stupid fucking Zoomerang only keeps results for 10 days after launch date (launch date being February 14) so that you have to pay in order to get the results after that date. You have sent in a request, including your credit card number, hoping that they are only going to charge you the $25 extension fee and not the full $500-something membership fee... and not knowing if this is actually going to go through today. What is a survey report without results? It's not like the teacher likes your group, anyway.
  • You have not eaten lunch.
  • The email with subject "Struggling with your job/internship search?" sits in your Inbox, mocking you.
  • You would like to skip Programming and stay home and cry instead, but then you wouldn't learn anything and you would be even more confused than you already are, which is very.

Welcome back to school, srah.

"Thank you for contacting Zoomerang Customer Service. The price is $25 per 50 responses. Your survey has 90 responses, it will cost $50 to extend. Let us know what you would like to do."

At least I'm not sobbing uncontrollably anymore!

And the class got an extension on that homework.

And let me know if there's anything I can do to help!

90 responses! Dizamn! We barely got 38....

At least you can split the cost among 3 people :) -- and we had to pay also, for SurveyMonkey, which doesn't let you ask more than 10 questions... and yes, that is a very mocking email -- i deleted it already :)

Not looking forward to going back to school next year. I know what you mean about doing the programming assignment the morning of. I tried that once (I only took one programming course), then did all of my assignments the night before (and pulled a few nuits blanches).
