Commencement over thank God

I don’t mind having less to do, and met a lot of people at the commencement ceremony include ma pro. The whole thing was a mess and disorganized the fam did not know where to go. There was this dried up little lady hollering at everyone about where to stand. I guess she was faculty or administrative assistant or something but she was a bitch who looked like her Friday nights were pretty much open from here to eternity.

The ceremony was quick as hell lucky because it was cold as shit in that auditorium. There was only one speaker who totally bogus all the other speakers were great. So, this terrible speaker, 1 was not a valedictorian 2 was terrible at…. (drum roll) public speaking. A lot of people were looking at each other rolling their eyes or looking at their phones because he was that bad. Okay the divorce of his parents in freshman year was bad, the fact his mom didn’t have a lot of money for him and his siblings is a common story but complaining about lack of air conditioning was lame as hell. I was seriously like why are we listening to an undergrad crying about no a.c. divorced parents who was a self-admitted non-valedictorian. I was like hold my beer, because I had worst stories when I merely walk out the door.

Then meeting one’s family and friends after the ceremony was crazy and the receptions were salad platters and lemonade. But most people I think did not know that at all. Really a shit show that I merely smiled through, grinned and bared it. But the ceremony was really a reflection of the organization, a contradiction of an institution that wants to focus on social justice, but can’t get the social structure or interactions right.

Field trips for a grade

This dumbest ass class had me going downtown taking time off of work to attend a seminar for the final project. I am thankful that I had a researcher partner find it for me but this program is supposed to be online yet here I am doing interviews taking time off from work to do special projects linked to the courses. The Roosevelt university site has events listed on their site but you can never sign up and register for them. You can try to email the presenter good luck with getting a response though.

Again, this degree plan is supposed to be online, so that I am working adult can go to WORK for a full 8 hours uninterrupted while going to Roosevelt. But that is not the case, I have had to go and pay for seminars, travel costs associated with these “extra” projects and take time off from work. The end result is that there are hidden costs that are never explained when you enroll as they bill these degree plans as online learning when in reality it is a blended instructional method.

Well that is the technical term meaning there is online instruction mixed with other shit that I aforementioned. Other TRUE online schools do 100% of their assignments and activities (drum roll please) ….. Online. None of that going on a field trip shit, like you are some kid who has their rich parents paying for everything and therefore you can spend your day getting lit, and scrapping by in your classes.

“Oh, let’s go on a field trip it will be funnier after we he high” type of shit, in other words. I just cannot wait until this class is over so I and my buddy in crime can put people on blast. You may wonder why because their shitty little end of the class surveys don’t do shit. Therefore, I will vent here too.
