Default Class is really getting to me

I have 2 classes this semester that are pure regurgitation of info....they bore me, I'd rather be learning and applying. I'm starting to get the attitude again too....I got a c- for writing a paper attacking the texts we had to read, and it wasn't on topic for what we were supposed to write....and I don't care. I had to voice it, it applied to the class....I just want my degree and to get into the real world.

..is this just senioritis?

...anyone else getting burnt out on school right now?

Believe me....things are 10x better on the "outside."

That is, assuming you can find a job.

Maybe you should just write the best essay you can that totally bashes everything but in a dignified way. That way you can get a good grade and totally undermine the actual class. Or you can just pass it half assed.

My last semester was pretty much wasted, but that was a different economy and I was flying all over the place interviewing. The profs didn't really care. Plus, by then, I could take pretty much whatever I wanted. I had one directed reading, one project class, an international trade class, some other stuff where I either knew the professor or could get an A with no thought. The latter were a nice break in the week.

I wrote a good paper, about how diversity was important....the texts were very "white is right" blacks wanna be poor kinda bs. I cited poor white communities, poor black communities, poor asian communities, poor latino communities in contrast with well to do diverse places.

Per usual, you attack the prof's bread and butter you get railed....thing is, I'll still get a passing grade....and I really don't care....but I should.

It's really immature of me to not just suck it up and do what I should...and thats one of the things that is getting to me. But I can't bring myself to perpetuate this drivel. Saying I'm being true to myself seems like a copout, and laziness being disguised as pride (thank you shampoo planet)...but the alternative seems equelly bad.

I always figured that I needed to be there in the home stretch in the real world, so I started practicing in college. But, I don't think it was very realistic looking back. LIke I said, it was an easy semester. Busy as hell, but I wasn't worried about grades. The profs all knew that we had more important stuff to worry about.

My wife is almost done with her semester. She has one project and one final this week, her class discussions wrap up by Friday. And, of course, right when I get my wife back, I leave for some classes in Albuquerque for three days. Ah, well, at least we have a good weekend coming up.

yeah. I'm burnt out from studying. I'm ready for the summer. I'll finish my first year of college this thursday. I have 3 finals left. Had one this morning at 8 am.. it was harsh. I studied way too much this semester and now I don't want to study at all. But from studying so much before, I only have to get high C's on all of my finals to keep A's so it shouldn't be too bad.

I just want to get out of this town for a while and not worry about school..

Yep, I'm going to learn more about the wonderful world of Windows 2000 Server administration. There are people on the boards that can attest to the fact that I need this training pretty bad. When're you going to be done with everything?

What time's the game? I'm not sure when I'll be out of my stuff tomorrow. It's Microsoft trying to sell me on Windows 2003. It should be flexible. The training is Wednesday and Thursday.

[rant] I hate school. I have 2 more years. One class, that thank god is over, I had to get 91 on the last test to get a b- in the class cuz the goddamn professor wouldnt give me any slack on a test that I did poorly on becuase of 2 misleading questions, that he even admitted were misleading. Its lookin like Im gonna fail a Poly Sci class, which means I lose that major, because the prof hates me and tells me that my papers didt have enough substance, then when i added more substance he said my style was poor and gave me the same grades. How can you write substantively and stylistic about 70-80 pages of weekly reading, and do it in 900 words or less? It isnt possible, to cram that much analysis into such a short paper just isnt possible. The man has it out for me, so he will probably fail me on the final. Then I have econometrics, I dont understand any of that, it sucks. The professor starts talking about stuff in class, goes to do an example, gets sidetracked, and then starts a whole new subject. He has NEVER completed an example of how to apply the subject matter. The book for that class is as bad as the professor, it is so confusing, and written in such poor english, that it doesnt make any sense. Then I have Macroeconomics. My professor sounds like Ahnold. I cant focus in that class for more then 5 minutes before I either fall asleep or start thinking about kindergarten cop. At least the textbook is good, but still boring as all hell. I can do well in that class but it is gonna require a lot of work. [/rant]

Yeah I just started my micro term paper and it's due at 11:00 tomorrow. Can't really complain though, I've been putting it off for three months now.

Thank you Beer! Not only do you consume my weekends but you also consume the contents out of my wallet.
