I hate this week a lot. Last night I was working on the assignment for my Online Search course and I thought I did it okay. This class has handouts and powerpoints aplenty so I was referring to them all over the place. In class I mentioned mine since I didn't get a result so I figured I did something wrong.
Now one reason I don't like this class is the professor does this thing of being incredibly sarcastic and kind of mean, but its hard to tell if she really thinks we're that stupid or if its just her way. It doesn't make me feel comfortable or like I actually want to listen to her, because I have to sort through all this stuff to find out what's she's teaching. Yet as she kept repeating in class today, she's been teaching this same way of searching since 1987. It got really annoying, we're using an old system to search databases since supposedly it will teach us how to truly do searching. I find it tough and feel like I'm having to learn programming again. All the things that are useful end up buried under a flurry of handouts and sarcastic comments and she does know stuff somehow.
Now the thing that's made me all tense and annoyed. Class was in the morning, after class I went to get my laptop checked out and now have my laptop in the queue of a good repair place. So I get home I think around 1 and I don't think I checked my school email. I started my assignment that's due tomorrow and now have a nice draft. Some time around 4 or so, I see there's an email from this prof. Basically she goes, there are tons of things wrong with your assignment and I want to speak to you, I'm around at these times. Well, the time she mentioned was this afternoon and I'm home and its too late. The time she recommends for tomorrow is when I'm working and this is all in this I need to see you and this is when you'll see me tone.
I wrote her an email apologizing for just getting the email, saying what wouldn't work tomorrow and would next week work. I've yet to hear from her which is freaking me out. I've talked about this in chat and on Twitter too, but I need to write it out so its not stuck in my head. I really hate this class, but its too late to drop and start another one. I'll get through this, but gah, I hate this. the_croupier
, whenever you're online, ping me, you've taken this class, hopefully its not as bad as it feels.
Please distract me with something, I'll take prompts, I'll take silly things just help.ETA
I got an email back that reads like an order, you will be at my office at noon. So that's what I'll be doing after my morning shift. I hate this.
