Today, I was feeling very anxious about how to mention my need to cancel my Abnormal Psychology class for next Tuesday, due to needing throat surgery. As it turns out, the state university where I’m teaching observes both Columbus Day, as well as the day after this holiday.
Therefore, it’s a non-issue! This was very welcomed news today. I will not need to ask for permission to cancel my class, after all. I will be able to take care of my emergent medical condition, without having to alter my teaching schedule at all. Sometimes, things just work out.
