But I've been good. I work an exhausting five days this week, which is arguably the worst week ever as far as shifts go. Tomorrow and Sunday won't be terrible, but Monday I work until 2 AM which is ridiculous. x_x
I finally started my own art thread! I'm really happy about it. I've been telling everyone! xD
NAO GO 'N SEE 'N COMMENT PLZ
you don't really have to comment lol but please check it out when you get a chance!
Luckily, few college teachers (or any teacher for that matter) actually want you to fail. As long as you work with them, they'll work with you! -- So there's no need to be intimidated by your professors.
Now, are you starting a winterim semester? Or are you talking about Spring?
Well hey! You don't need to be! I'll yell at everyone for you! >:D
Really though, you would have done the same thing if it was you, I guarantee it. No way I was going to let some silly lady decide my fate as a college student because of a natural disaster. And I'll bet you would never let yourself get bullied like that.
Crappy-- but then better. Prepare yourself. This was my damn week. / long story
I got into a total tiff with my Algebra professor. You know how NJ got hit by Hurricane Sandy? Well, the college was closed for two weeks. I find out when I get back that my teacher had sent an email saying there was going to be class and a test. Well, we had no power so I got no such email. Go to class the next day, take the missed test-- and she's collecting tests from other students. So I'm all like, "wut" and she's all like, "a bunch of people flunked so I let them take the test home and redo it" so I was like, "a'ight".
Weeeellllll....... I totally bombed the test. Got like a 72 or something. Way below my average. Freaking Algebra. So I'm like, "okay, lemme take that shiz home" and she said, "no, that was a special deal given to students who were able to make it to school". -_________-;;
She was giving preferential treatment to students who were less effected by the hurricane.
So I went straight to her boss. Took it up with the Dean of Mathematics. And because I'm in the top 2% of the college and not on financial aid, my opinion actually matters to these people. I made a freaking half-ton stink about the whole deal. Played all the cards in my hand.
Retook the test yesterday. And not just me-- but EVERYONE who got below a certain grade on ANY test was able to retake it.
Got a 96 on the test, stood up for myself, and fought for equality on behalf of all students.
