I don't know but over here its hot as hell because it summer time and I live near the ocean and that means that its hot at night as well as during the daytime.
Lets me try to recap my last 3 months of my 3rd Cycle B of the Systems and Information career.
The Rules Have Been Set
Well basically my first and second cycles of the career, also commonly known as "General Year" where like kinda going back to high school. Other then a few new subjects, I felt my first year as a breeze or some what of a warm up. I will say I got a bit cocky after starting the 3rd cycle A and thinking to mysel: "Bah! This will probably be more of the same"; little did I know that this was the time when serious programming and deep software insidness was about to come... so much that I almost flunked one of my subjects, ALMOST!
So after learning that tough lesson, I went on to my the 3rd cycle B with a new state of mind and knowing that my real studies have started and will continue to go from now on. Basically, I'm playing by a new set of rules, but been the rascal that I am I always try to bend them some what in my favor. NO! I don't bribe anyone! I just try to befriend teaches kinda like how Master Roshi was Goku and Krillin's teacher but also their friend. I hope you get what I'm trying to say. :P
I STARTED WITH A WILL BUT B**** BLOCKED MY WAY
I had heard about these type of teachers before but little did I know they would soon come to look for me. Everything was going fine, starting my 3B cycle.
Compitent Netbeans/Java teacher? Checked
Compitent Linux/Operating Systems teacher? Checked
Compitent Systems Analisis teacher? !
And here is where the sh!t hit the fan big time. OK, I don't know if theirs this same saying in other parts of the world but in Spanish I've hear the saying: "Por cualquier camino llegas a Roma" which means "By any way you reach Rome". This means that no matter which road or way you take, as long as you reach Rome you are on the right way. Same thing applies to programming and analysing, as long as you reach to your objective or the real objective... it doesn't matter what road you take or how many lines of programming you type, your real objective to creating something isn't to make it perfect from the beginning but to make it and then perfect it as you go on elaborating within it, just first get what ever you are creating to work. (I guess you can apply it to other field of study too)
Getting all the jibber jabber out of the way. This "woman" or whatever she can be called made me really hate the subject because everything you did was wrong. So basically if you didn't think exactly as she did you were dead wrong. Man, we [my c.lass] gave that b**** rope and she used it to hang us all with it.
We first tried to talk to her like reasonable human beings and how her learning method isn't really working with us and frankly how we have gotten second opinions on the course and that frankly her teaching could be a bit "crooked" (to not say complete dog sh!t). Well that didn't work and so we went to the principals office and to the dude who oversees this career department and they talked to her and she talked to us and why didn't we try to reason with her before talking to the overseer dude and I was thinking: "What the @#$% did you think we were trying to do for the past weeks you @##~€€¬&%$$ !!!", and all sort of other nasty stuff but I calmed down and went with the flow.
So she tried to do better to some extent but their was already problems because she was whyning to us how this c-lass should be a 3 hour c-lass and we only had 1:30 hrs per c.lass, to which she had already missed 5 c.lasses almost straight. So she complained on how short time we got per c.lass but she basically never came... hmm :? .
Anywho she quit teaching the subject about two weeks ago but not before leaving us with a little gift. She apparently quit and complained on how the c.lass' level was very low and how it wasn't her fault (you know to cover her a$$). So then this a$$ who oversees the career came and told us that they were switching teachers (as if he had come to that conclusion on his own or something) and that since its so close to finals then they are taking away those recuporatory exams from us... basically we were f'ed no matter what we did. What could we do?... the college was covering its a$$ and kinda seemed like they cared for the alumni. Bastards.
The bright part of all this turmoil is that the teacher substituting was a capable and reasonable, one which I have great faith in. Also, just a few hours ago I took this subjects final exam and although I know that basically the college wants to screw me and my c.lass over so that we can pay to take the course again... I have faith in the teachers judgement more then in any other teacher. Although, non in the c.lass expects to aprove this subject at least we didn't go down without a fight. Hey who knows, maybe we did approve or maybe not. Theirs really not much to say about this other then F*** It!
I still got some more things to write about but its very late and I'll do it tommorow I guess.
See Ya in P2.
