Ripping my Hair Out!

Sting, how do you do it?! How did I get to this point? Oh, I remember, overachiever that I am!I just couldnt be satisfied with high school diploma, WAEC, GCE, NECO, ba?!  I think that is even an insult to those who hold the real title, since I lack the tenacity to wear that belt...I am tired....plain and simple....Again I ask, how did I get to this point? This is the most ridiculous of my 3.5yrs college career. What has been said about saving the best for the last? Apparently I missed that memo. Since it is turning out that I saved the worst of my classes for the last of my semesters. Shall I talk about my 40+ page thesis which is due very very soon but doesn't even have the foreword written yet? Oh or the Math class that I have been putting so much effort in but receiving discouraging results on?

 Ok, let me shred the over qualified man who teaches the class, perhaps that will make me feel better. Seriously Prof. XYZ, you are better off working with the FBI or NASA! No disrespect, but you have no business teaching in college...you are way too qualified and are doing a poor job of dissemination!!! Maybe if my final grade wasnt depending on your really obtuse grading structure, I would have cared less...but unfortunately, it does and by extension...I care...cos from the looks of things, you are about to ruin everything I have spent years building with your sadistic grading structure and obtuseness!!!! Don't you just get it?! Aaaargh!!!!

As for you, Prof. Employer! I do like your enthusiasm. I just hate being on the receiving end of it because I dont necessarily share in your vision. We need to get this straight, I am NOT an employee of yours so please stop telling me  (as well as 30 others) that you are going to be managing us like employees....we are your STUDENTS....meaning we don't know what the heck we are doing and we need so damn directions! I get that the exercises you give to us are supposed to be practice of the decisions we will be making in the real world. But the catch is not all of us are finance majors and by extension, not all of us will have the "grande" opportunity of making key business decisions of which international bid to consider for drilling....(Again, I ask, how did I get to this point?). It doesn't help that you have so many years of experience with logistics because somehow, you have been deluded into thinking that so do we. I throw up a little each time you mention that this is what we are going to be doing for the next 40years...sorry sir, transfer pricing,  hedging, forward contracts and detecting bubbles with financial facts is NOT what I see in my horizon!!! So please, let's keep it concise, simple and relevant! For Pete's sake, yours is not the only class I am taking this semester so my life can't and shouldn't have to revolve around your silly enthusiasm for playing "real world"!

You both should be proud of yourselves....without even trying that hard, you  were able to "both-handedly" give me a migraine.......never before have I had one!


Lord, if you please, let this cup pass over me.....


PS: I am not depressed, just tired...just want all of this to go away!


Sigh.......send some positive energy my way...tell me some stories of the great things happening around you!
And a happy and prosperous new month to you.

UPDATE: Thank you so much guys. I feel better than I did yesterday, in part cos I go home on Saturday and also reading your comments made me forget my troubles, even if momentarily. My friend suggested that I just go sit on the lecturers heads. That that should teach them a lesson. For good measure, I have decided to go on beans diet for the next one week, peradventure I need to make real of my threat. A couple of farts here and there while sitting on their heads should pass the message across to them and if that doesn't work.....oh well, I will be back here crying on your shoulders....again!

Thank you so very much! I will respond individually shortly

  14. You know what? At the end of every academic turn, something like this is likely to happen. To the glory of God, I have to certificates to my name and I can tell you, it does happen. It's a normal thing to rant, to cry... I shared a post on Winning Word for the Week (my weekly devotional on facebook) this week...it'd really inspire you. You should read... YOu don't mind if I post it here; do you?

    1. "The Lord our God said to us at Horeb, "you have dwelt long enough on this mountain."" - Deut 1:6

      This week, I was made to reflect on something that happened 3 years ago. I was trying to complete my MSc degree. I was trying to get my thesis done. I had about 3 months to complete it. However, I spent the initial 5weeks not know what to do and how to go about it. My mates had gone ahead of me. I remember in one of the meetings I had with my then supervisor, he was worried I hadn't gotten to the level my mates were. I remember, one of my favourite lines in prayer then was, "Lord give me unique, uncommon, excelling, extraordinary and sanctified ideas to complete this thesis." Somehow, in the 6th week, I found an article that did something related to what I had in mind and that was the propellant I needed to take off from that mountain. In 4 to 5 weeks, I completed my thesis, way ahead of all my mates that had gone ahead of me.



      Listen to me, God is saying to you this March, enough is enough. You have encompassed the mountain in your life enough. It is time to March forward. It is time to GO FORWARD. God had to bring to the realization of his people in that scripture; more like, "just in case you are yet to figure out, you have been on this mountain for ages. It is time you move ahead" [Deut 1:6 Paraphrased].



      Maybe you're looking for a job and you've applied so much that you know all the vacancies available in your country. God is saying enough is enough. Peradventure, you're trusting God for a breakthrough and it appears you keep going round and round in circles; God is saying to you today, enough is enough. It's time to March Forward. We are in the month of March in a LEAP year; and that means stagnancy is not your portion this year. Whatever it takes to get ahead, God will give you. If it is to March or leap, or fly, you will move forward this year starting from this week in Jesus' name. No more dwelling on mountains... It's time to March Forward.. somebody with faith shout Amen?!
