Tired and disappointed

Lately I've been extra dedicated to my Master's degree. I was supposed to make a presentation and to submit my project to receive a grant. I made the presentation (which was my priority since the presentation was going to happen next week) and postponed dealing with the documentation needed to ask for a grant. My teacher said that he would help me and made an appointment with me so we could deal with everything I needed the day after my presentation.

Not only he forgot about the appointment but plainly ignored me all day. I had told him that I needed help since I don't know what are some of the things that they ask for submitting a grant proposal. So I got very mad at him and returned home, as I don't live in the same city where I study. The thing is: I work during the night and this grant would help me a lot. I travel every week so I can study and it is a very long and tiresome trip. When I got to my city my teacher got mad at me because I didn't submitted my proposal. Well sir, with all due respect, I asked your help and you wasn't there when I needed you the most. He then proceeded to say that I should have asked help from the other girls that are advised by him and I sure did, but they had more important things to do.

I wish I could quote Dr Seuss. I'm still tired and disappointed but I decided to do everything on my own and in my own time. It's ok if people can't help me. In the end I will discover by myself what I need to submit and he can get mad at me all he want, because I'll be the one ignoring him this time.

I love it when people around me promise to help then don't yet they expect me to drop whatever I am doing at the moment to do something totally useless for them right NOW! Worst part is not even a 'thank you' out of them.
I have learned to NOT depend on nobody but myself because I know I can't depend/trust on anyone else.
Best of luck with your grant proposal.

Thank you! I'm gonna need all the luck I can get. Right now I'm depending on a document from my old College. I don't know what's wrong with them, the guys simply don't understand that I need the document!
