In March when a family member of mine unexpectedly passed away, I emailed my professor, who had supported me for the past few years and always engaged in conversation with said to "don't worry about" me completing this assignment or any other major papers due (other than the final business plan). I told him I would have it for him, but since a part of me had died then, I didn't know when I would submit the plan. My plan. I felt as if I didn't have a plan anymore because that member died. I had three people in my family that I planned my life around and bent backwards for, and now I only have two. To be perfectly frank, I believe my professor was one of the few people who understood that I wasn't going to go back to being my normal "self" after a few weeks. I'm still in mourning.
