jw, also i don't see why you couldn't use your prof as long as you cite properly
Oh I know I can. I just feel weird about it haha
I’m taking my first class where the professor assigned their own book, and it’s definitely odd referring to them in the third person in papers knowing they’re the one reading it later
Here's a funny(ish) story
I took an exam in my Engineering Geology class a couple weeks ago and it was brutal cause the prof said the format would be the same as the 1st one (which was 30% definitions and 70% concept diagrams) but that wasn't the format and there was only one concept diagram question and a bunch of other weird stuff that we didn't study so literally the entire class felt they failed it.
Last week he told us that he started grading the exams and they looked pretty good so far and we all just were confused and told him that we literally all thought we failed.
So today he comes in and says "I want to apologize for telling you guys that the exams were good. I only graded the concept diagram which you all did great on. After that it was all downhill. Every other question was just bad, and not even some of you, it was the whole class. The average was about a 40 and the standard deviation was really small, it ranged from like 37-43". Hey, we tried to warn him ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Happy ending though as he is letting us retake the exam on Friday
in my geography class I’ve literally managed to only get these scores on the tests. They are 60, 60, 60, 62 and my last test was a 62. I hate myself.
I missed like more than a week of classes before/after my vacation. It was rly hard to get back in the swing. Now there’s only like 2 weeks of classes left and everything’s due soon so the pressure is on.
although the good news is I had a grad check and got approved so I can officially apply for spring graduation
im skipping class again but in my defense it's a different class and there are skip days built in and I had one I hadn't used yet. there was no other time in the semester that would've been convenient to use it ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I'm sorry!!! i just think it's bullshit I have to be there AND it's in the morning :/
Next semester I'm taking four classes and three are online.
Pumped. I'm gonna be in pajamas all semester.
I’m taking two classes so far because full time is making me die inside
Me the next fucking day: wake up well before my alarm and yet.....
I was already skipping my last 2 classes (one has another in class assignment that I didn’t do and the other is just an in class work day) so I’m like wait why
Anyway here’s hoping I don’t fail
Who's fucking idea was it to make the last week of classes right after Thanksgiving
I have 3 projects, 3 exams, and an essay due next week. I'd like to enjoy my break but guess that is too much to ask
I have three grad school applications submitted with 10 more to go. Desperately trying to have them all done by this Sunday. I currently have December 19 (day of my last final) scheduled for when I'm allowed return to being a normal human instead of a constant working machine
my teacher accidentally put our 5th test as extra credit and we all agreed not to tell him because he boosted my grade up 5% lmao.
12 papers to write in the next 2 weeks and a full unit plan due Thursday. Want too die :~)
I haven’t looked once at what I have to do for these next two weeks since TG break started lol. I’m checked outttt
I just wrote most of a paper that is either due tomorrow or the 9th. But my brain is toast so I’m gonna call it a night and bank on it being the 9th.
Have an overdue assignment hanging over me as well as three others due this weekend. I was supposed to keep up while overseas
I successfully defended my thesis last Friday. I technically graduated but I don’t have my grades yet or anything.
This week was so stressful and had so much pressure on it. Then I got insanely sick. I put school to the total back of my mind. I emailed all my professors last night with my doctors note but it’s almost guaranteed that this will cost me 2 of my classes
Which almost guarantees I can’t graduate in May
It really really sucks. I’m trying to be okay with it.
