I've got an agent and an editor pitch meeting set up. You get one of each so I figured why not?

I was actually excited because the agent and editor I had wanted still had slots. It's probably cause they both do urban fantasy and paranormal and those in actual press are considered slow markets so people aren't writing them as much.

Ugh that makes me feel so bad just typing that.

However, that was due the Friday before my birthday. That next day was the day Katie broke my computer. That said, I hadn't slept since Tuesday because of some family crises from Katie calling and being suicidal over her job changing her assignment (not quite demoting her but basically because of moving her to a more dangerous office), and so we'd had three nights in a row of panicked calls from her and going over to her apartment.

It explains how I literally was sitting there reading off my instructor's feedback and rereading the notes I took on her in-person feedback and STILL not translating it to the work. I'm seeing my prof today as well to see if my second draft of the final lab report is hitting the points better and how I can continue to do that, but I was sort of stumped on how I was literally looking at the feedback and checking it off as I went and still misunderstanding it so badly. Since I hadn't slept worth a damn in about 72 hours it makes more sense.

It's not a blame thing. I've been working to set up walls and boundaries and not be around where Katie is, but it does make me feel a little less like a) wow do I just not understand the material and requirements and b) I was probably still somewhat confused but also very exhausted and blotto.

The tutor helped me understand better how to read certain types of graphs for interactions and main effects of ANOVAs.

The professor and I had a long talk about my paper, the family situation at the time, and she was super honest about it and said that she'd been there as far as having asked for extensions before and that I should feel free to come to her if extenuating circumstances are creeping up. She said that I can always ask and I don't have to feel embarrassed to ask for help, and that she knows I'm a hard worker and this one paper doesn't change her opinion of me or make her think I've been phoning in the semester or anything. She also gave me suggestions on how to fix my current paper's discussion so I'm doing that right now so I can have a final beta/friend (not from the class) look it over for grammar and things. I do feel better. I mostly above all things hate letting other people down.

ETA - of course I'm still super nervous about my personnel class because I just don't know where I stand going into the massive final and I feel like I'm triaging anything and can cover everything I need to know about the last four months (yes) by Thursday night. Ugh, I've rarely had a semester where I've felt so out of it.
