Busy Busy Busy at school

April 6, 2009

We haven’t been posting much until very recently……that’s definitely not for lack of stuff to say……

We just don’t have the time. I should be in bed right now……it’s nearly 1 am and I have to wake up in less than  six hours. 

I had to audit one of my math classes…..my professor just goes way too fast, AND when he wants us to solve an example problem, he doesn’t stop talking…..he just goes blah blah blah about the problem. I really like him, but I can’t handle his teaching style……it’s just not compatible with any of our learning styles. 

My other math professor (Calc 3; the first one was for Intro to Abstract Mathematics…….less number stuff and more proving stuff) doesn’t do enough examples in class…..I have to figure out a way to let him know that other students feel like he doesn’t explain enough…….haven’t figured that one out yet.

We’ll be writing a letter to the academic standards committee asking for 2 courses to be dropped from our gpa and transcript…..those were taken when we were all sick from being misdiagnosed with bipolar disorder and being heavily medicated for that…..because of those courses which we obviously got bad grades in (Athena did them…..Ivan and I were far too gone at the time……we didn’t have independence of thought from one another……those meds churned up all of our thoughts collectively into one confused mass of mind-mush. How’s that for a tongue-twister? Ha-ha! 

Wow, I was certainly not expecting this topic to come up in this particular blog entry…..I guess it happened for a reason, like everything else does. It’s true. Everything happens for a reason, no matter how confusing or unlikely or undefined that reason may seem to be. 

I’ll/we’ll explain more about the misdiagnosis later on when we ACTUALLY HAVE TIME.


That certainly won’t be this week…….we have an exam on thursday. 


The Integral



  1. Well I guess I know the proverbial bugger all about maths but the bugger all I don’t know, nobody else does either 🙂

    Maths really was the ring of doom for me during my first spell at Uni.

    • hahaha Larry…..

      that comment was funny 🙂 and made me smile, thanks

      The Integral

      ps. You probably know a bit more than the proverbial “bugger all”……which is “fuck all” for Americans….(just in case someone asks)

  2. My daughter’s boyfriend is having a miserable time with math. He can’t learn from the professor and blames himself. I take the attitude, move on my dear. LIfe is to short to suffer bad college professors. I guess it’s easy for me to say.

    • Thanks for the kind words Cupcake:)

      My prof isn’t bad, he’s just too f’ing fast for my brain.
