Paranoid about Pyranoids.

I have been having a bad week in general, but today has suddenly become a Very Bad Day. I *think* I might have completely misunderstood the question in my carbohydrates coursework, and if this is the case, then I need to COMPLETELY redo it. And I've already spent 12 hours on it plus a further unspecified but large number of hours fixing the formatting when saving it as a Word .doc file ate all my diagrams, goddamnit.

So now I am panicking because I need to find out if it's wrong or not, and I *hate* having to email lecturers to sound like a total dork. Y'know, if you ask a stupid question in a lecture there's a 50:50 chance they'll have forgotten by next week, but if you have to email them a stupid question, then it sits around in their inbox to remind them of how stupid you were for the next 10 years. And if you ever *do* end up as faculty or something, you just know that at any minute they could drag out that dreadful student email to remind you of how stupid you used to be. Or, even better, use you as an example to the current students.

Could someone who's not in vast quantities of pain please have a look at this email and tell me how dreadful it sounds? a.s.a.p., because I need to figure out if I need to redo the coursework a.s.a.p. Collapse )
