Took my transcript in to the college I'm hoping to get into today. Then I ate an amazing Donair.

My entire calc 2 class just got absolutely roasted by our final. I probably got ~40-50%. [bleep].

Calculus wasn't that bad for me, but I think that happened with me for discrete. That [bleep]ing teacher loves proofs and wants really formalized stuff. :|.

 

 

Anyways I'm done with all my finals, yay :lol:

I hate proofs. Haven't even done that many, and only for basic maths but I really absolutely hate them.

I'm pretty sure I got every problem right in my discrete class except for the proofs. I'm just hilariously bad at them :/

I had a professor that could grow 5 o clock shadow in 2 hours. He shaved twice a day

When I was in high school there was a guy in my class like that. He shaved at least a couple times in our lounge while I was there (he didn't bother with shaving cream). Sounded like sand paper. Made all the guys cringe pretty bad.

 

I try not to remember my experience with calc 2 too much. Fortunately, it doesn't seem to be crucial to the other courses in my degree.

That's criminal. Where I am, it couldn't be any later than the final round on Dec 13 (I finish tomorrow).

 

Anyway, now that I have finished my final studying, I have time to think about things before I eat, watch some TV to calm down, and go to sleep.

 

I live in perpetual fear that I will sleep through an exam, especially morning ones like tomorrow. My main countermeasure is to use 3 alarm clocks staggered over an hour, and to change up my phone alarm to something loud and obnoxious during exam season (something I am not used to). But I've also noticed that I sleep very lightly, and wake up very frequently on the night before an exam (because getting a smaller amount of poor quality sleep is fantastic for writing an exam). Other people have this...I hesitate to call it problem (it's pretty effective at ensuring I don't sleep through an exam)? I also wonder if the waking up frequently is a deliberate thing the body does in response to needing to wake up earlier than normal, or if it's just high levels of stress screwing up my ability to sleep like a normal person.

And now you call me Saq...

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Nah dude, it was Latvia

 

But yeah, if all these posts dont spell out exactly what's wrong with standardized education I dont know what does. Getting super stressed and acting strangely will yield poor performance, even if youre really good at the task at hand. Test scores dont mean shit.

I'd agree with you about how bullshitty the education system is. I'm pretty anti college myself. I'm only there right now because spending $20k on that paper will yeild me better job titles and higher pay. 

 

I've already been able to get jobs developing software. So for me the paper is just an insurance policy, that I've researched enough for my field to decide its worth it.

Sometimes I feel like the only reason I'm still in college is because I'm afraid of the real world

This storm is ridiculous. 

 

It hit Northern California first, and my dad ended up hydroplaning, spinning twice and slamming head first into the center divider on the freeway, So that was a SUPER COOL AWESOME phone call to get from my mom. And now the storm has made its way to my neck of the woods here in SoCal. Lord help me.
