Professors, those unapproachable people who make poor students to suffer and work harder than hard for their grades.
Actually, I have had a privilege to have a bunch of brilliant professors throughout my university “career” of roughly 400 credits. But there always bad apples in the basket too. The ones who don’t want to teach but seem to do it only because their position in the faculty states so.
This fall I have been sitting on one of those miserable classes that I had to take because of my future plans. The class topic itself is more than interesting, actually fascinating. So I have been extremely frustrated and annoyed the whole semester because of professor’s tardiness and jumping from off-topic to off-topic …. Yes, indeed, off-topic.
I should have guessed this after the first lecture – professor was 45 minutes late, and then spent two classes by talking about basic Psychology theories. On a class meant for students at the end of their studies. Great.
So here I am (yes, frustrated and unmotivated – writing this entry on my class), bored out of my mind and occasionally arguing with the professor about some medical/psychiatric research topics she is misquoting.
If I hadn’t over 100% success rate on this class, I would probably have been kicked out by now. One more week.
