well, its been a hell of a week and haven't had much time to really sit down and enjoy myself, but it is nice to be back. finally decided to go meet with my academic adviser to get my classes set together and this was not a fun meeting with her, she's also one of my professors. i am not sure who read one of my previous posts about my terrible exam and the scenario i decided to write down for shits and giggles, but she confronted me about my exam, for info just scroll down to a previous post...its there trust me. she was shocked i was even in her class as well, she told me i needed several other courses i needed to take before i would have even understood her material. issue is...she advised me to take this course this spring during the fall semester last year. makes me wonder what she is even getting paid to do... at least she let me drop the course so it doesn't hurt my gpa, but knowing i shouldn't have been there would have been nice to take a gpa boosting class instead.  this also is an issue because now i am pinned in a corner. next year is all or nothing and will determine whether i need to pay for another semester or if i could graduate.

 i get the feeling she advised me wrong knowing i could screw up with a failed required course by being blasted with 50 chemical engineering courses at once....but i will give her benefit of the doubt for now. i have all my original documents from her so if i need to try to do anything and fight her back i will be able to.  Thanks to all who actually sat through my small rant, i just wonder how many others reading my blogs have ever felt cheated by someone who is supposed to be advising them as well.

On the last note,  she told me to drop her course because she "felt" i would have the lowest average in her class and never be able to pass.  turns out my room mate was doing worse than me in her class and i had a 55 average, a 50 is needed to pass her course.  though i don't regret dropping...i need a 2.0 in chem eng classes for my chem eng gpa and a D would just suck to have there amongst my major classes.

so, to end this post for today, here is a nice video that helped me to relax a bit ;D  you nostalgia you lose.  anyways, if you guys like video games and never tried this, i encourage playing it.

  6. Ooof. Had the same experience with a crystography course. Almost exactly the same situation, albeit with a different adviser than the prof

  8. What they said. I often go back to few years of my life and recall that I overstressed a few things.
