I just failed one of my six subjects this semester, and with 3 final exams to go, its scaring the f*** out of me. I'm scared I might fail another one (or more). I guess I'm already running out of motivation.

I think its okay for me to retake 2 of those subjects because I really didn't learn anything (and I won't get delayed from graduating anyway), but I'm shitting my pants thinking what my parents would do to me, or how the f** they'll react. Its also a shame to fail those subjects because they're pretty easy, but as much as I wouldn't like to blame others for my failures, I guess my professors have something to do with it.

Long story short, how do I tell my parents about this sh*t without them screaming their *sses out on my face (and still buy me a guitar LOL)?

At the risk of sounding like a dick, it probably isn't the teacher's fault. You have to take account for your actions, and work hard to fix them next year or next semester. You might be able to retake those courses during the summer or at a community college.

I don't know if that would be enough (or I'm really just freaking out), but I guess that's what I'm about to say. I really wish I could still get them to buy me a guitar.

You can put your good words here HAHA

I think there really are exceptions to that and this could probably be it (both professors are teaching for their first time). But, yeah. I surely its also my fault.

double posting. you must be real scared

Seriously, if you are only afraid of failing courses because your parents would be steamed, then there is a real problem. You shouldn't be doing well just to impress your parents. You should be doing well for yourself.

YOU are in control of your own marks. I've been in school for a long time and trust me, it's NEVER the professor's fault. I guarantee there are people doing well in the courses you're failing so how can you blame it on the profs? The one piece of advice I can offer is that the mark you get in a course is almost always proportional to the amount of work you put in. If it's a tough subject, put in more work. School isn't about just getting by, it's about LEARNING the material.

Man up, look them in the eye, and tell them "I screwed up". Accept whatever they do calmly and try harder next time. There's nothing else you can do than accept what's happened and learn from it.

Well that's an answer I'm not expecting from here (just kidding UG).

Most of my classmates on one of those subjects really hate my prof, but really. Yeah, I've kind of accepted that already. I guess I just ran out of motivation. How do you solve this?

Everyone finds their motivation from different places. I stay motivated by never losing sight of my end goal. I know what I want to do with my life and I'll do whatever I need to do to get there. Every time I feel tired of studying or doing work, I just remind myself that it'll be worth it. It also helps that I've got a really supportive group of family and friends who encourage me. I'm sure your parents want to see you succeed as well.

I guess its pretty much psychological, isn't it? Don't you have something specific you do, eat or anything to keep you going?

A lot of it is psychological. You just need to find something you're really passionate about and then doing work doesn't seem like a chore. In terms of things I do to keep me going, I maintain a life outside of school. It helps keep me sane and gives me a break from school every once in a while. I hang out with friends, play intramural sports, play guitar, work out, and volunteer at a couple of places. I also eat very healthy, nutritious meals. What you put into your body is so important to every aspect of your life. I find when I eat well I have more energy for other things and I have greater focus.

I don't know if its just culture but I guess its really not that easy. Probably its just because I've never failed this hard before.
