Avoiding a Fatal Car Wreck

So I got some really crappy school news yesterday (which I am not EVEN going to elaborate upon because it makes me so angry) that I hopefully can remedy in one semester instead of having to take AN ENTIRE EXTRA SEMESTER to finish this gorram degree. In an effort to not have my head explode right off of my body, I am going to apply the same logic to this that I apply to my life sometimes when I am running late:

God is a big guy, and I am of the opinion that everything happens for a purpose; even if it sucks really bad. On a small scale, for example, is running late. I mean, yes, you're not going to get to wherever it is on time and you might get in trouble or at least frowned at sternly, but I like to think that if I was on time, I would be driving however many seconds or minutes earlier and I might be in a fatal car wreck because of it. So, when I run late, I just remember that God does stuff like that on purpose (even my lame ass inability to be punctual) and even though it sucks, it's going to be OK. Sometimes even better than OK. Sometimes (more of the time than not, really) it's exactly the way it needed to be.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

school sucks, you should just quit with me and become a trophy wife. I have a plan, you can totally join in and be a part of it.

I'm never on time either. My kids hate it and I'm sure because of that they will be more timely than their mother.

I assume you mean you only have to take one more class than one more semester? You mention semester twice, so I'm confused. My son has taken a required class twice and failed to get a passing grade, so here's me *throwing dollars out the window* as he has to take it yet again. Grrrrrr........

Well, there is one class that if I have to take it in the spring, it will be the only thing I'm doing (which is retarded and unnecessary {much like the whole predicament}). However, if I can get them to let me either write a paper or take an independent study or something in the fall, I can still graduate in Dec. as originally planned. Blech.
