Geez, I have really messed up this time!
Yesterday the philosophy dean tells me that the university secretary has been trying to reach me all morning. When I turned in my thesis back in June, I failed to include a C.V. and a pic. I also failed to turn in the 20 page paper on my oral exam topics. This paper is due ten days before the oral/written exams for the license. I didn't understand the implications of this failure at first. Then it hit me: the license exams are THIS WEEK!!! Great. . .so I have a twenty page paper to write before Thursday's exams. Oh, and the thesis defense is Saturday.
Just to add to my stress: the French exam is today not Wednesday. For some reason known only to God and His angels, I listed the exam for the 6th in my diary.
These screw-ups happened for two reasons: 1). all this scheduling info is on the university website in English and Italian; however, the process for completing the requirements is available only in Italian. . .and it is incredibly confusing; 2). I have always had a very weird relationship with time; that is, I find it difficult to conceptualize step by step processes in a temporal fashion. The only way I have ever managed this flaw is to write out a process in my own words.
Is there such a thing as Temporal Dyslexia Syndrome?
Needless to say, I am panicked.
