Started off with an email from someone regarding an email I'd sent a few days back, which had contained one line which I must admit, looking back, was a little insensitive. Didn't really think about it at the time. Feel terrible now, have apologised. but nonetheless, I hate causing offense.
The theme was continued as a classmate had a bit of a go at me after I'd tried to offer them a little advice re. how to survive the course. They were clearly not impressed, and took it the wrong way. Their reaction was a little below the belt I felt - and this all took place on a public forum which is subscribed to by most students in the department!
This has all left me feeling rather wobbly.
