The decision handed down to me: I didn't get the job. I'll refrain from comment there.
The decision I made: I'm not taking another class for the fall semester. The amount of misery that my current class has caused me this summer is not something I want to repeat and it's just not worth it at this point in my life. Lesson learned. So I have three and a half weeks of sucking it up and getting through the remainder of my current course.
You can expect a new-and-improved me on August 8th. Not that I won't post before then, but we'll see.
