Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Procrastinating by making a school thread, I think this is ironic or something?

so I only have one lab report left to write this semester but oh my god did they have to leave the most boring lab until the end? Blah blah blah chlorine disinfects water and then you have chloride ions and thank you for not giving me cholera but this is still incredibly uninteresting

whine about your own bullshit, chumps

    the problem with having a lot of your mark determined by pre-exam stuff is you get to the end of the semester and go "oh fuck oh fuck oh fuck okay I'll just study for like 2 weeks straight and the exam will be fine" but then whoops the exam is only 50% of your mark and fuuuuuuck you can't go back and fix your previous fuckups

    Isn't 50% a lot? I consider the final to be a huge part of the grade if it's 30% or above. Man, I'd be pissed if my grade was more than 50% riding on a single test. I hate having that much riding on that little.

    50% is the class with the least riding on the final for me
    2 of them are 50%, one is 70% exam, and the other is up to 100% exam (it's either exam, or a weird 1:2 weighted average of exam and homework+midterm mark)

    got done with a presentation I needed to do

    wasn't great but I'm glad it's over

    next up: critical reading paper on Indigenous Australians

    after that: evaluation post on our community work project

    after that: integrated practice critical reflection paper

    and finally: social policy critical analysis paper

    I think

    I think that's it

    there's a good chance I'm missing something

    One of my courses I actually forgot about a test worth 10% of the mark, and put off doing the lab report because I had something bigger due, but I get to make up for it with an exam worth 50% of my mark, and composed entirely of 72 multiple choice questions.

    I have like zero multiple choice exams this year. Haha fuck, the maths exam from last year is only 2 and a half pages of questions for a 3 hour exam.

    Still a couple weeks left of school. Guh. Every one of my classes this quarter are all riding the curve so no one knows what the hell their grade is and won't until we get our final grades in our transcripts.

    So until the summer, I have several more homework assignments, I have to redo the entirety of my Comm Theory midterm and describe what/why I got stuff wrong so I can get a 10% chunk added to my final grade, 3 finals and a research presentation with a MATLAB example of the "zoom FFT" function.

    Please tell me someone here knows something the zoom FFT function.

    Now I just have to wait for the grades, which is a bit nerve wracking. But boy, is it good to be able to relax for a bit.

    I realized this morning while listening to the "How to Think Like An Economist" speech for the fourth semester in a row, that arguing with people on the internet and all the time and effort I've wasted just trying to prove people wrong over stupid shit has actually been really useful for me and relating to my major.
    That bothers me so much.

    It's something you do need to weigh up, and I don't know how much of a hassle transport is for you, but all else being equal it's better to go to the classes. You'll pay more attention and you can ask questions when you don't understand something.

    I'd probably pay more attention yes, but it's a 200+ person class and I've never really been one to ask questions. It's a freshman-level bio course that I'm taking as a senior because it's a gen-ed for engineers, so the content isn't really a problem. Just memorizing frustrating BS and looking over old multiple-choice exams.

    I'll be going in for the review days and obviously exam days, but other than that it's not worth the extra hour of driving.

    Thanks for your concern though!

    my advisor was completely wrong. one of my classes wont transfer and they calculate gpa differently,

    so i wasted a semester and 2000 dollars retaking classes that were supposed to replace, but instead of replacing my grade like he said they would, it only raised my gpa .2 points. while my community college grade is still an entire point above the required, measly 2.0 I needed, the gpa they calculated is not

    I don't know what to do, this was supposed to be a solution to not being homeless in three months and finally going back to school andi don't know what to do

    my view of community college has changed, it's so not worth it,. i am such a fuckup, oh my god.

    edit- im just gonna go freak out over here in the corner

    Have you spoken to an advisor about this, Pillow, or is this the calculation given to you off of the school's student website to track your 'academic progress?' At my school, at least, the website's calculations are always, always wrong and when you go see an advisor they recalculate it the correct way.

    I've found this to be the case especially with transfer grades and replacement grades.

    So maybe it'll be okay?

    I called the uni and they showed me how I could go to my cc's transcript and calculate it the way they did. He was really friendly and showed me where the grade differed exactly, and gave me a website so I can now check which courses from that school won't transfer. Even the way they calculated it, I only needed a few decimal points!

    I'm done freaking out now, so yeah, it'll be ok. I'm just not good with plans. I'll get it right next time.

    I have been such a worthless piece of shit today. I got out of my apartment to go somewhere else to study but my allergies hit me so hard I went home and then I completely failed to start studying. Fuck.

    I still have a few hours left of the day, lets see if I can get some reading done.

    Haven't had a class in 3-4 years. I start Spanish Intermediate 1 tonight at a local community college.

    My life is about to be the show Community. I am the Jeff Winger only instead of a fake bachelors, I stopped 4 credits away (but really a 4th level language requirement) in 2006.

    I hope my study group has some good characters in it.

    I'm a published writer and have a very unique and interesting writing style. I'm also sharp and witty. My profile is well-written and hilarious. My messages are likewise brilliant. And I've been doing this stuff for...four or five years. I know what "works" in terms of good internet dating writing. "Works" in the sense of leading to a "date" with a human female.
