A Small Degree of Panic  
I have a project due tonight for my level design class and can't finish it. It won't open on my laptop.

I emailed my instructor and said I wasn't going to be able to submit it by the deadline, which is midnight. Fortunately, I've had this instructor for three other classes and he knows I don't blow off assignments. So I'm hoping I'll be allowed to submit it tomorrow instead of tonight.

If there is a new and exciting way to break a project for one of my computer classes, I'm the one who will find it. OMG.

I know that the chances of him refusing to accept my project late is almost nil but I'm still perseverating over it. As I tend to do.

Deep breath! Okay.

Thank you BB!

I'm sure it will be fine. I just need to relax over it.

I say go and watch some very nice Eye Candy to relax :-)

you can do this! just take a deep breath. keep trying and if that doesn't work, bash the hell out of the laptop.

I'm only slightly kidding

Bash the hell out of my laptop!

Don't think I didn't consider it! It's not on my Mac so it is tempting to bash my PC, which I only have because I need it for my gaming classes.

Macs rule!

Thanks BB!

That sucks! I can understand your anxiety. But at least you know your instructor and he knows you. I'm sure that will help immensely.

Good luck with all of your classes this semester.

Yeah, my anxiety is rising which is ridiculous! He's not going to refuse to accept my assignment but I'm such a school-nerd that I can't help it!

Thanks for the kind words. (BTW - I hope you know I need to stay on your Flist! What would I do without my dante?)

Oh, that's frustrating! I hope you can get it open and the instructor will be okay about the delay! *crosses fingers*

I have tried and tried to open it with no luck. If I won't open on the school computer, I'll be in a world of trouble. I really don't have to start from scratch but since we're using this project the entire semester, just adding to it to make it more complete, I really need to recover or rebuild it.

Sometimes I hate computers!

Thanks for the virtual hugs!

You did the right thing by alerting your professor but now it's time to decompress and refocus. You are fine :):)

I hope that helped :):)

Take a deep breath and take some time out then try again. You did the right thing letting your professor know, I am sure it will be okay. :)

I just cannot get it to open! Stupid stupid computer!!!

He will accept it late so I need to stop worrying about it!

Thanks for the kind words!

Thank you!! He's not a stickler at any rate. And he sure won't give me a hard time about this. I just need to chill!
