I'm even sadder →
[More:] In the previous post, I talked about the tough time my son was having at college. We've come to grips with the fact that he will likely lose his scholarship; sh!t happens.
We talked to him yesterday and went over his exams and where he was doing well, and not so well. He could still keep his scholarship if things go well, but even if he doesn't, we were hoping he does his best. He had one exam left, for the Music Theory class that's been giving him all kinds of grief.
But my wife just got a call from him at 9:30. He had just woken up and his exam was at 8:00!!! Apparently he set his clock wrong! He went to the test room and the professor was already gone! (It was supposed to be a two-hour exam.) Anyway, he was going to try to find the head of the music department and see what could be done. We told him to call us and let us know what happened, and it's been over an hour now, so we're hoping no news is good news; maybe they'll let him take the exam after all? I dunno.
Whether or not he keeps the scholarship is beside the point, really. Damn, my heart breaks for him. At this point he just wants to come home. He's no doubt feeling pretty low about now.
