You wake up, and from the darkness you remember: you're in the CMP degree. Sure, it's hard. Sure, I'm learning some stuff. But…
[[…man, I need an extension on my assignment->Extension]]
[[…I remember there was something about gear->Gear]]
[[…I've got some serious issues to talk over->Serious]]"Extension" you mutter, through the haze of two hours of sleep. "I can't possibly get this done in time." You cast your mind back over the last few days. "What was it that was getting in the way?"
[[Oh yeah -- I got sick. Real sick.->ExtensionSick]]
[[Life. Sometimes you just get behind.->ExtensionLife]]
[[There was that other thing… what was it now?->ExtensionOther]]I've got to get the gear. None of this crazy plan will work without it.
[[How do I get stuff again? I don't remember.->SiSO]]
[[I've got a gear problem, and I need to talk with someone. Soon.->GearContact]]SiSO! That's it. I remember now. I have to log in, search for the equipment, and make reservations. Easy as -- the hard part is remembering to turn up on time to pick it up and return it.
[[I'll head straight to SiSO now.->SiSOgo]]Alright -- I'm pretty sure I've seen Virginia and Adam in the gear room a bunch. They're probably pretty good to talk to. Then there's that James guy, but I think I should only get in touch with him about serious stuff.
[[It's not too serious, I'll just contact Virginia and Adam.->GearVirginia]]
[[I better call the big guns, and let James know what's up.->GearJames]](goto-url: "http://siso.massey.ac.nz/")(goto-url: "mailto:email@example.com")(goto-url: "mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org")Double-click this passage to edit it."It's a good thing I'm letting someone know now," you think. "When I'm just starting to get sick. If I wait until after I get better, it's just being rude to the course coordinator. I know that. Let's take care of this." Looking at what you've done already…

"But for now, I'll get in touch with my course coordinators. I can put in a request for a week-ling extension without needing a medical certificate."
You make yourself a hot cup of herbal tea, because you know it's important to take care of yourself. Settling behind your computer, you send of an email to your course coordinator.
Later, when the normal assignment deadline hits, you upload whatever work you've completed to Stream.
Then, after a week, you submit your completed assignment, confident in your process and outcome. It feels good to be healthy again.Double-click this passage to edit it.
