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.

Avoid this program altogether

I would not recommend the Training and Development program at Roosevelt university even if they paid me for it! My main dude and partner in crime is graduating soon so I thought if his old dusty ass is getting out I better too because I will have no one to help me with my homework! Well we met through this program at the university and since we shared the same degree program and he was ripping through the forums like a maniac I had to make sure we are doing everything parallel.

Therefore, when changes happened to the program we were fucked of course the academic representative was less than helpful but fast forward to this training and development class I am in. The instructor is so shitty, disorganized and ignorant that it is not funny this assignment we have now the whole class is asking for clarification and she is asking vague questions without giving any specific feedback.

She is asking “how does this make you feel? What do you feel is the purpose of this?” Instead of giving a straight answer or examples like when you say: “how does the sky color make you feel?” instead of just saying “Gray skies are depressing”. She is so passive aggressive she cannot not get to the point and it is just mind numbing -fucking yuck!

Oak park Il blog I enjoyed Black Friday and Thanksgiving by myself

Ah Saturday without a project to do I finished up the portfolio class main project, blog and career plan project for the next two weeks freeing me up to deal with the stupid bitches in my other class. I did not go anywhere for thanksgiving and it felt great! No pain in the ass relatives, over the top judgments just kept my nose to the grindstone and worked out all that crap to clear the way for a simple graduation. I had talked to a bunch of people on Skype but left it at that. I walked outside to take out the garbage and realized there was no one on the streets!

In Oak Park, Il! So yeah I got in the car and cruised to the local gas station filled up the old gas tank and enjoyed driving around without a bunch of idiots bothering me on the roads. I was at ease driving around something that has not occurred in a long time. There was a profound inner peace that I realized black Friday had given me.

Something I will cherish for a long time I wished every resident of Oak Park, Il could enjoy but unfortunately such peace does not last that long and it will all come down or go to hell for the rest of the season. I think I will give some of the other stuff a once over then call it a day, I am not in the mood for bullshit today.

Happy Thanks giving from Oak Park, IL blog!

For those of you celebrating thanksgiving: Happy thanksgiving!

For those of you not celebrating it for any reason I do not blame you. I have tons of work to do for third module projects and final projects that going to an uncomfortable get together with family to eat dry turkey and to look, not eat, green bean casserole is definitely out the cards.

I simply do not even have the energy to commit to their nonsense and finish my degree plan. Its either focus on the end of two years’ worth of work, or dealing with another year of relatives asking “aren’t you done with school yet?” Sorry, but I trying to get somewhere on life lol and that in the end is what I will be thankful for.

What a weekend..

Holy crap the whole Cubs season has been a rollercoaster, the end of the season, I thought there would be a great chance for a repeat, but only to have it end in a spanking that I did not enjoy, ugh. That was on Diwali (Hindi holiday), Friday so I was then pulling for the Yankees to pull it out only to be disappointed on that front, so now I am recovering from this weekend of disappointment. At least it was a happy day for those of you celebrating Diwali especially in India!

Okay, I wanted a freeze drink, to get me over the Cubs loss, I asked for it in the taco bell drive thru around 11pm in Berwyn where I went to see the Cubs game at a local sports bar. However, was told the freeze machine was “down” I went back the NEXT day (to go see the Yankees game). All of the sudden the freeze machine was working, in less than 24 hours???? What bullshit. I wanted to tell that bitch off so bad but I wanted the 10 tacos I order too! LOL

I have the last classes coming up starting Monday (today) what a pain but hopefully I can get done with it. The change in programs or the umbrella it was under has stressed me out to the ninth degree so I am just trying to complete it before they change it again and add more requirements. This is some Dumb ass secondary education bullshit only at the Postgraduate/graduate level what a wonderfuck but I am happy to get it over it so I am not as “nailed down” here due to educational constraints.

Oak Park, Il blog related: Back to school

I am back in school for the time being taking about two classes or I have a full-time schedule for the next two terms, this way I can get done with school get the Masters degree in line with getting done with Oak Park, IL tons of writing means I will probably spend more time in front of the computer instead of outside whiffing in the smells of dog shit and pompous attitudes in the great outdoors.

I might use the extra money and or time to get myself ready for another move and update my furniture to things that are more functional and durable. This way it will not break down either inside just be used or during a move like my four-drawer dresser from Ikea. The movers just turned that thing from a thing of beauty to Frankenstein’s monster in less than a couple of hours. Mind you I waxed and shined that thing for a good 8 months and was very careful in using it.

Now one of the drawers’ outer face is scratched and another drawer is just smashed to pieces. That is why I am dipping into my drinking fund to get it right this time, ha-ha I guess I am “growing up” but I just want to make sure that I am not doubling my expenses just to make the apartment look cute in such a shitty suburb. With that in mind, i am going to max out on Bed Bath and Beyond coupons on the sturdy shit, instead of on candles.

I already took the advice of some of my buddies and looked into Ethan Allen (2k for a dresser!) but I am not that interested in that type of investment unless I am certain I am staying in the state. The amount of taxes that are going into effect especially very soon, like getting a house or a condo less of a sure thing than ever.

Therefore, keeping my head down and getting back into the swing of writing for school to finish that up and also to get back in practice of writing for the blog will be more of my focus …well, unless there is a two for one or free drinks option somewhere. Then I will happily fall off the wagon. Toodles.

My new tape recorder/converter to mp3 is keeping me out of trouble in Oak park, IL

I am sitting here with my new tape recorder it translates the music to a mp3. It gives me something to focus on when coming back home to Oak Park, Il the traffic drives me nuts as is, and the neighbors that want to be my friend or get in my personal business to the point of giving “advice” to me but I really don’t care. So, with this thing, since I am not in school I am either enjoy summer activities, being at work or Some shit.

Therefore, now I got this as a project I have a “go to” to get out of tons of dumb shit. Old lady lectures, dumb social engagements or just plain ass wasting time like a dumbass. The chaos of the village can really depress the shit out of you to the point you are in a rut and you cannot do anything or accomplish crap.

This place is simply demoralizing lol Luckily there are other things to do in the area but Since I rather not spend my rent money on keeping myself entertained I got this thing to transfer old mix tapes to mp3s, old lectures from School to tapes that were made by family and friends.

I rather keep busy and out of trouble instead of being on the mean streets of Oak Park Il navigating too small for traffic streets and riding slowly behind little old ladies who cannot travel the speed limit if their lives depended on it. Seriously. This new project is an overwhelming or going to overtake what I can do for the blog.

Also on a side note, I already have a bunch of Halloween themed posts ready for the month of October ready. Scheduled and ready to post I am also working on wallpapers for that holiday for the blog and my FB account. I get tired of the same old shit that is supposed to be for kids only here in Oak Park, Il

Hence I am thinking about maybe going or having a party during the Halloween week/weekend. I am not really sure because I am taking a full schedule to get done with school. I start the fall 2017 term in two days so I want everything to go smoothly. Hopefully, without my new old ass neighbor being busy, I can get this all done without a lot of interruptions but alas that is Oak Park, Il full of shenanigans ready to screw your world up.

New teacher, new class hopefully more time for teh Oak Park, IL blog

Hopefully, with my new teacher, I will have more time for the Oak Park, Il blog the constant rewrites I had to do for the last class was insane. All I have to say that when I complete the program I am dusting her ass in this blog. That teacher was like the self-important people here in Oak park, Il the world is a positive place so long as it revolves around them and nothing else.

As long as everyone conforms to what they want, for me it was the only time I could escape from Oak Park, Il was when I went drinking recently with my girls in Chicago (Lakeview) or when I go to work. And the latter I am still dealing with whiny bitches who try to force you into a mold of what they believe you should be and nothing else.

So much for America and being American, an individual all that in this village and in that class is not wanted nor required to meet “standards” oh I am so glad to be free and hopefully I will be free of this hellhole too.

Spring term nearly over so I will be able to focus more on the blog.

Omg I have been so busy writing rewriting and re-rewriting stuff for my first class of my spring term it is ridiculous the amount of time And effort that I have put in this class is enormous I have actually worked my Grammarly program overtime to get my grade an A of course. But the constant misdirection, double talk and retaliation from this instructor was two times the amount of crazy shit that I usually deal with on a daily basis in Oak Park, at work, getting laid, or finding some cool ass shit to wear.

The effort spent was like trying to get Head for Pete’s sake, damn I just said “Pete’s sake”! But it was a fucking lot of teeth pulling babying and outsmarting that usually, you don’t Have to do unless you playing a role on “homeland” the television series or trying to make sure yo ass don’t get fired for doing stupid shit like in the movie “Friday”.

This instructor was nearly impossible to please and difficult to understand. I will take print screens of most of the Crazy shit I dealt with including a nut job fellow student who worked at a dental office I would never go into, cause the chick is Cray cray But I need to hold off until I am out of the program this fall to talk shit. Crazy fucking bitch. Wooo glad I’m done. Fuck that crazy bitch where the sun doesn’t shine!

Writing for Oak Park, IL blog

It has been hard to write for the blog, work at the job, wash my ass, eat properly, and do schoolwork. It is the schoolwork that is the problem I have one of these passive aggressive teachers who takes offense when you ask questions to clarify about their lecture, or discussion points. When you got Graduate assistants dropping the class, and other older students shaking their heads when they leave the class, you know that this instructor is a clusterfuck. They try to get us to do group work in the class, and I wonder what age does this methodology stop being in play? Because I am an adult and I deal with enough irresponsible adults leaving their dog’s shit in my apartment building’s courtyard without picking it up, now I got to deal with picking up the slack of grown adults to make sure my grade is okay.

Then the instructor freaks out doing all their reminder shit involving the entire group like I did my part of the work and turned it to the rest of the group and the instructor so they know I completed my group work portion. I truly do not understand why the instructor adds me into this shit when my work is on a doctorate level than the graduate level we are currently in. Half of my fellow students, cannot even get the assignments in on time, nor, write more than two pages for major assignments. Truly with this shit going on I come home turn on the Netflix, read the assigned text and write my shit for the next assignment.

I believe that if I do this I will have enough time to cover my ass when my fellow students do stupid shit. Yeah, it is called time management something that my neighbors upstairs have no idea about when playing with their dog at 11:27 pm at night. I never had this type of trouble until I moved into Oak Park, IL bar none, it is like this fucking place is cursed, or spat upon by the heavens above. Probably because of all the dog shit.
