Dude, I’m so pissed right now, I can’t even…I just can’t.
I’m going to make a quick rant about my college experience this semester, and how it is making me fucking crazy, and probably not at all helping my whole stress-ulcer situation. I’m going to warn you ahead of time: I’m angry, so there will be lots and lots of swearing.
My history class sucks balls. Basically, you can’t make a B in the class without reading a boring “scholarly” book and writing a paper on it. I’m not convinced it is possible to make an A, even if you get a good enough topic together. Why, you ask? You have to do the A objective, which is a paper, and get at least an 80 on all 4 tests, and that is fucking impossible. The teacher doesn’t offer any kind of study guide for the tests, so you have no idea what to expect. You just get to study the 4 chapters and hope to God you remember the right stuff. I took the first test today, and of course, I didn’t even remember reading about half of the stuff on the test. THE FUCK, MAN?
And because someone fucked up with textbooks, we didn’t even have lectures until, like, 10 days before the first test. And then the test wasn’t even available to take until 2 days before it was due. And then, AND THEN, if you wanted to get an A, you had better have your A- objective proposal ready to send to the teacher TOMORROW, that is, if you were able to get at least an 80 on that test that wasn’t available until yesterday. And if you did, FUCK YOU.
So yea. Not happy.
I’m also taking Intro to Computing, which is required for my degree. It’s distance learning, so I already have to know how to use a computer in order to sign up and take the class that is going to teach me how to use a computer. Academia is such bullshit.
