Good news: My Department Head waived one of my courses needed so I can still graduate in the same amount of time as if last semester hadn't happened. He also said I am "good," and that "he's not worried about me at all." Nice.
Bad news: I have the same instructor this semester as I had last semester. For the same course. Which, for the record, I'm re-taking because the way the courses are set up there are only like three thesis course numbers to repeat. SO WEIRD.
Now to awkwardly re-introduce myself...
"Hello, remember how you didn't like anything I did and we passive aggressively fought about my work? Let's do that again."
