Hi. So I'm a Junior finishing up my finals week who got mixed up and made some mistakes that won't ruin my life or anything, but that I feel anxious and embarrassed about and would love some advice on.
I was finalizing my second of two papers due by the "end of the day" yesterday when a friend called me wanting to meet in person about something she felt was really important to discuss. The thing wound up being a non-starter, but it took up about an hour and a half to meet with her, so I didn't ultimately turn in the paper until 30 minutes after its due date. Yes, I know I should have turned in the paper days beforehand but literally did not have time. I have done really well in that class up to this point and so expect this to bring me down to an overall B at worst.
However, it took me a while to get back into sorts last night and this morning, and I completely forgot about and missed my interview slot this morning for a school tutoring job I was supposed to get next year. I don't imagine they will give me another chance for that job, though I sent an email explaining the situation to them just in case.
Again, not getting that job and receiving a B in that one class will not seriously ruin the course of my life. It is just freaking me out because these things happened so quickly during an already stressful time and I struggle with some (generally well-managed) anxiety issues beyond this.
Does anyone have advice or suggestions on what to do next either to mitigate the fall-out from the events or move forward?
