So apparently some people with dirty minds believe that the walk of shame is when you leave in the morning after a one night stand, but they could not be more wrong. The real definition of the walk of shame is when you go to your campus assessment center for an exam that you already know you will not pass, failing, and then greeting the proctor to return a pencil while trying to fake confidence even though you obviously just flunked a class. And that is exactly what I did.
I mentioned before that I have a lot of trouble with Math, so even though I studied my butt off I already knew that the few points I would earn on the proctor exam would not raise my grade enough to pass. This would normally bug me because I try to work hard to get the best grades possible, but I am actually kind of calm about it. I know that I will have to retake the class, and I will, but I’m relieved that I do not have to worry about school for the rest of the year. It feels like all of the anxiety from school has just built up and chose to explode this year.
But anyways, here is my tip for those who will find themselves taking a stroll down that inevitable walk of shame:
It doesn’t really work, but at least you can pretend that everything went better than expected.
Time to go drown my sorrows in video games.
