my desktop computer updated today from (I think it was 11.04, can't remember) to 12.04.3. Now I can't get to my desktop. When I boot it up, I come to a screen that says:
Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS username-desktop tty1
username-desktop login: username Password: Welcome to Ubuntu 12.04.3 LTS (GNU/Linux 3.2.0-57-generic x86_64)

I've never seen this before and don't know what to do to get back to my desktop. I'm in the middle of typing a 10-page final paper that's due tonight by midnight and I can't even access my desktop. HELP!!! PLEASE!!
