Breaking: Your Answer Not One of the Multiple Choice Options

After half an hour of painful integration by parts and partial fraction decomposition, you have finally arrived at a solution for the monstrosity of an equation you were provided. 

To your astonishment, your answer does not match any of the multiple choice options on your exam. 

You break down in tears. You realize that this small incident is indicative of and a parallel to your life as a whole: you can work intensely and diligently to build yourself and your ideas, but if you don't fit one of the prescribed outlines, you are considered wrong

After a moment of despair, you write your answer below the options, draw a bubble next to it, and fill in your own bubble.
