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
