Hi Prof. —,

I’m saddened to write that in studying for the midterm that I was going to take this morning, I realized that I was sorely ill-prepared to succeed in this class with the current ‘time-crunch’ format.  Given my other time commitments in the last 2 weeks and the upcoming 3 weeks (a lot of them related to my upcoming back surgery), I have come to realize that I will not be able to succeed in this class as I had hoped.  Withdrawing at this point will allow me to take care of my other commitments and come to a point of better preparation for school work in the fall.  I will take a W for this course and take the course again in the Fall when the work load is more spread out.

I appreciate very much the time I’ve had in class with you thus far and your flexibility regarding the re-scheduling of the midterm.  I am saddened to be withdrawing at this point, but am hopeful that it is for the best.  I look forward to taking Intermediate Hebrew and ANE History/Archaeology with you in the Fall.

Grace and peace,

    Aww man. I’m sorry. Are you handling it as well as the letter sounds?

    Sorry to hear that you had to W. As tough as that is, its a good exercise in letting God manage your future. Hope the rest of the summer goes well.

    Thanks fellers. Handling it well enough. Still a little bummed, but taking solace in the fact that it was totally the right call to make. I think part of me is fighting the “I couldn’t do it on my own and keep the fourteen juggling balls in the air” self-pity. The other part really enjoys not having to do homework until 3am every night. 🙂
