Today is the big day

Today is my sister's wedding.  As one of my friends was nice enough to warn me about, the comfort level in my heart still doesn't seem to be coming.  I'm trying to clear my head so I can try to study a little beforehand, but it doesn't look like it's happening.
This isn't a good thing because I've taken enough courses to know that poor starts tend to get punished harshly, especially in the summer.  It gets magnified when you end up stuck in a spot where you have to squeeze 6 weeks of work into 5, a proposition I'm not certain I can pull off considering my varying work schedule.  So I had a long live chat with an available friend last night, and we talked about what's going to need to be done to handle that problem, including the possibility of leaving some of the readings I'm behind on out in the cold.  That idea is dangerous, but it looks like I may be able to match readings to specific major assignments and the discussion paper requirements aren't too bad.  I could still conceivably save the course, even if it may be controversially so in my heart compared to the last one.
What is basically boils down to is that there really wasn't any way that my nerves would be settled "enough" for this, but without DS the situation would be much, much worse than it is.  I don't know what I'd do without it.
