And it all crashes down

Well, this year has ended in abject failure, and if I know myself, my degree study has ended the same way. It was a good run.

The university was offering much more lenience for assignment extensions this year, due to the pandemic. With my work crushing me due to overwhelming demands on IT while half of our staff were unable to work for medical reasons, I had little time for study, and needed one of those extensions for the first time since I started studying. Although tutors were given wide discretion in awarding extensions of up to 21 days, the catch is that you have to have a tutor who responds. And mine never did. A month later, he still hasn’t.

So that’s it. I’m throwing in the towel and walking away. If I’m not enrolled again by next autumn, I’ll shutter the site.
