You know the feeling of getting used to how things usually turn out, so you don’t expect a change in it? I felt like that during my summer class and I wasn’t expecting a change in my fail streak.
The last time I took my Algebra subject for the x time was two years ago, I think? Yup, I think that was the time cause during my Junior year I got stellar grades.. hahaha. I was pretty confident that time that I was going to finally pass, and I really pushed myself to make an effort with all the requirements. Unfortunately by the end of the term, my prof didn’t see that effort and decided to fail me (again, but no, that wasn’t the previous prof who failed me, lol). Sans the violent reactions I wanted to say IHF, I just accepted my fate in a form of a cardboard paper, smiled (more like smirked, I hope) and went back to my seat.
Dunno, I really didn’t feel like crying (summady remind me how I reacted during that time).. but for sure I was pissed because: a) Frustrating educator; b) Always gave out the HARD problems for us to answer; c) Always favored the other half of the class who excelled in the subject (for fuck’ sake they were freshmen students, give us old timers some consideration.. obviously by that time our minds were wiped off of Math problems and the like).
Ah well, fuck ’em all. Bee tee dubz, they got their ~*karma*~ some months later. TEEHEEE~
And then.. my decision to finally surrender, lower my pride and sign up for summer classes in 2010 came in. I have an iffy opinion when it comes to summer classes, but what choice do I have? I have to get over this subject soon or else I’ll be having more years to stay in this school if I don’t re-take it sooner.
Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise (lol.. sry), or just pure luck, but I heard that our summer break in 2010 will be around just two weeks.. so I thought “hey, it might be an easy pass after all!” but I assure you it was not easy. Would you believe me if I say that I prefer the treatment of my Algebra summer classes than the treatment of taking a back subject in three months (1 Trimester)? Yup, because in every meeting we had, it is equivalent to a one-week meeting already and also there were no “pauses” between our lessons so we don’t forget what we recently discussed easily.
I guess because I was too paranoid, scared and whatnot of failing again.. I really, really tried my best to understand every lesson. Every day for during those two weeks, I bonded with my scientific calculator and sheeeeeeets of yellow pad. I still have the small-ish stack of scratch papers in my room. 😛 Also, it was the only subject I had during summer, it was from 8am-1pm and yes I woke up early for it, everyday.
Part of the problem that I noticed with my re-takes in the past is that I take major subjects with this so that’s probably why I don’t get to concentrate on that subject seriously, and the computer!! I swear the computer is the biggest distraction ever. During my summer classes, I brought my laptop for diagnostics repair on purpose.. I only got it after my classes ended on the 22nd, hahaha.
Before this gets tl;dr for my daily and/or new visitors, here’s a summary of my first summer class I’ve ever had in my life.
- I’m actually going to miss that class. Our prof was hilarious but the best prof I’ve encountered in Algebra, there was not one meeting that passed that we left the room in a bad mood, among other stuff.
- My body clock was restored to normal in those two weeks, I got used to sleeping and waking up early without feeling a bit of laziness in the morning like I used to. 😉
- I learned the ‘concept’ of Algebra this time, I really did. I hope I don’t forget it soon.
- I got the fair treatment that I didn’t get previously.. Really a good prof, goes over the lesson over and over again if we didn’t get it.
…..and the last one is epic, I swear… wait for it.
- I found out that some of the stuff my previous prof taught us was WRONG, completely WRONG. I knew there was something fishy about all those lessons. First day of summer class, we were reviewed on some basic stuff and I already spotted one mistake from my old prof’s teachings. Lolbitch.
Ok I think that’s too much tl;dr now. BUT WAIT.. there’s more!
I posted this entry in my other blog.. last year.. don’t think for a second that I forgot about it.. it didn’t slip my mind! 🙂
And party was what I did after our last day in Algebra. I’ll be posting about it on my other, other blog. 😉 As soon as I get my arse off from procrastinating and upload the photos no matter how late it already is.
PS: I’ve been looking for an internship online since Wednesday and I’ve yet to send the requirements on the ones I liked. 🙁
STILL OPEN FOR FREELANCE WORK, just let me know. 😉
