Hey, everyone. I'm going through some stuff, and I need some advice.
Here's some background information: I am in the tenth grade of a very difficult school with all of my classes being honors classes.
My Dad had been diagnosed with cancer a few months ago, and I have been incredibly stressed and rundown this whole school year.
Last year, I had gotten a 3.2 (if I had gotten 1% higher on my english final I would have gotten a 3,4) with all honors classes. This year, I've missed a lot of time (which I am trying to fix) from school from just being absolutely rundown, stressed, and sick. My grades are pretty mediocre; 90% in honors Algebra II, 87% in honors Biology because one lab fucked me over, 68% in honors history because my teacher has yet to put in two grades she is supposed to, and fucked me over big time with make up work/'late work' (I only had one assignment late, and that was only a day late because apparently I didn't receive the full handout for something), and 81% in honors English (I misundestood the directions for one assignment), and 83% in honors Spanish. To be honest the only grade I am happy with is a 92% in my Engineering and Design class.
I know I can probably still get a 3.2-3.3 if I try really fucking hard, and drop everything else in my life and get lucky, but I'm just overwhelmed.
Is there any advice people have other than the obvious "Grow a set of balls, and work harder."?
It depresses the shit out of me since I did so well this year, and I feel like I am working just as hard/harder and I am doing so shitty and I basically ruined my grades for this year. I had wanted to go to a higher tier engineering/science college, but I am not sure if that is even possible now that I have fucked up this badly just once.
