Wasting Class Time

So I figure it's time for a new School thread. Since finals are in roughly a month, at least for me.

Currently I have to do a presentation on the historical background of Muromachi and Momoyama Japan.

I figured, I'll be early and I can rap with other people who are presenting so our stuff doesn't get all redundant.

Welp nobody's here.

So...

I go to Carleton, by the way, that's in Ottawa.

What're your schools SE++?

How's shit coming along?

    So, we're having a test today, and I'm pretty sure the teacher said show up at 8:45. Normal class start time is 7:20. I'm pretty sure, but not 100% because they didn't update their site like they normally do. Hmm...

    I'm making a talley of people that walk by me, wolfing down Tim Horton's Breakfast Sandwiches,

    Which is gross cause it's almost 11 so most of the shit is probably cold.

    I'm on Spring Break and last week all my classes rushed their tests so there wouldn't be any tests over break, except one.

    I'm at my apartment trying to study, and planning the rest of my break, as I didn't go down to the coast due to monetary restrictions! So I'm gonna study a little today, and throughout the rest of the week (chapter a day gives me Monday and most of Tuesday to review summaries) and test at 2 on Tuesday.

    Cause all my friends back home are either working or their school doesn't let out until next week.

    I had to withdraw from classes this semester because I got super fucking sick. It sucks because my classes were looking pretty awesome and I was excited but NOPE

    I went to Carleton! In Northfield, MN, that is.

    I'm learning about mycoplasma infections right now.... Or supposedly. I can stream my lectures from home, so I'm watching class on the toilet.

    I have missed the vast majority of my lectures this week. Had a god awful cold tuesday (my busiest day), and now I have so much copying up to do. Shit sucks.

    Only 1 month after the Easter holidays and then I have exams. Really not looking forward to them.

    i found an evening beginner blacksmithing class at the local community college that I am looking into taking.

    10 weeks, Tuesday nights from 6-9pm, $339.

    seems reasonable price for something that would be pretty boss to learn

    just dropped my first and hopefully only class in my university career

    I missed a lot of the lectures and really had no clue what i was doing so I figured I'd rather drop it then get a D in the course

    I need to take a few extra electives some semesters anyway so I might as well just have one extra semester

    plus this way I can better concentrate on all my other shit

    I dropped a class this semester, cause I tested out of it!

    Felt pretty good. It was after the freebie drop date, which means that if I ever get close to the six drop limit, then I have to appeal the drop and prove that I dropped it because I tested out of the class in the middle of the semester.

    Don't think I'll ever have to do that though.

    need to pass into a basic bio course for my engineering degree

    it didn't used have to have a prerequisite, now we need to take a placement exam

    if your act score is above 21 you automatically get in, but if you're like me and your scores are older than two years they don't count

    I tried the placement exam last semester and failed it by a few points because it had way more questions on evolution and ecology than we had ever learned in high school bio. Need to pass it this semester to take the class in the summer.

    They go by the higher grade I believe.

    And like, if you have so many courses taken, they just cancel out your bottom grades.

    I think at least, Agnes went through something like that when applying for her Masters program.


    And now she's all, "Fuck Masters, PHD TIME BABEH!"

    nah I agree having a small foundation in bio is important

    it just doesn't make any sense to have you place into it if the prereq doesn't have anything to do with what the class teaches

    not to mention it's a poke in the eye that a 21 on your ACT can get you into the class

    you could sleep through the ACT and still get a 21
