I had a terrible day on Wednesday, but my nep seeds ended up coming later that day as well. Things turn around unexpectedly. The one test I remember taking was one where I thought I had completely failed. When I got it back, I had gotten 63/65. I looked at the "smart" kid's test, and he got 62/65. I felt very accomplished and I still remember it very clearly. You'll always remember the good things that happen spontainiously rather than that one term paper you worked so hard on, but you never got it turned in on time.
It would be rather awkward, but if you feel like the teacher would change her mind, email her the link to this conversation and beg her to not dock you on the points.
Could you imagine 'explaining' this to your boss? LOL
