Thanks everyone. I did feel a weight lifted doing this. I never took 6-week intensified courses before and let me tell you, they really are not for people who work and have a family. There are just not enough hours to do things as well as you would if you had extended time.
That being said, I just dropped my World Religion class.
I'm in the 4th week right now and I failed the first test last week - I got a 58.
I have NEVER gotten a 58 on anything in my life, I was mortified and it was really a smack in the face which said "Wake the hell up, you cannot do this. It's TOO much!!" The test was ALL essay questions and you would literally have to memorize everything you read in order to pass it. It was the hardest test I've ever taken.
There was another test scheduled for this Thursday (yes, on another several chapters - oh sure, I can read that and absorb it all in one week.
) I sat down tonight to do the Quiz that was due by midnight (I haven't even done the reading yet) and I just decided to quit. I don't have the time for this. I dropped it with 2 days to spare - 6/10 was the deadline to receive a grade of "W" instead of a failure. Wugh Wugh Wugh. You know it's bad when I'm willing to kiss any refund goodbye - it's even too late for that.

Trust me, you made the right decisions. Sometimes it's not worth it, and it's okay to realize that.
I dropped a summer course once after the first week. The only thing I regret is I bought the software and books and it cost a small fortune. The thing of it was, I hated that class. It wasn't a requirement, and I knew it would be torture the whole way through.
You couldn't be more on the money.
I am living proof.
