Last Friday, 19-year-old University of Texas at Austin first-year student Ann Mark, a communication and leadership major, had some issues on her way to a final for her "introduction to history of world cinema" class. She told BuzzFeed News that she hadn't been to it in about a month, and suffered the consequences on the way to the exam.

Basically, she went to the wrong classroom, ran into a window, and had to last-minute grab some "blue books" for the test. For her, the "worst part" was the window incident and she's hoping to find footage of it.

"I just wanted to let you guys know how my first real college final was...oh my god," she begins the anecdote in a now massively viral video. Mark said she recorded her story for Snapchat, so that she could more easily communicate to her friends and family how messily it went. By the way, she ultimately made it in time for the test, and wrote an essay that referenced the movie Napoleon Dynamite.

But a top administrator was apparently sympathetic. The president of the university, Gregory Fenves, responded to Mark's video on Twitter, telling her that "We'll make sure you have enough Blue Books for the next four years."

Mark's grandmother has even defended her. After someone called the student a "dumbass," on Facebook, her grandmother responded with a sassy question, concluding the query with: "Sad šŸ˜Ÿ."

Mark said that she understands some criticism, noting that she should have gone to class. "I openly admitted I made these problems for myself," the college student said, with a laugh.

The college student has a spirited attitude about the whole situation, and even spent Monday night with her friends searching for the "meanest comments" in response to the video.

"We were literally dying of laughter," Mark said of their reaction.

As for how Mark did on the final, she said that she doesn't know, but thinks that her professor has, by this point, seen the footage. "Iā€™m sure that my sweet professor has seen the video," Mark said. "I hope that helps me," she went on. "It might hurt me.ā€
