It Gets Worse… Than A Bit Better…

So today I went to the Registrar’s Office as I was told to do and after wasting my time going there and waiting in line and stuff I’m told *surprise surprise* the Registrar’s Office doesn’t do seminar changes! I can’t even write in words how angry and flabbergasted I was when I heard this! So it turns out the people who keep telling me to go to the Reg Office are the ones who are supposed to be doing the seminar thing for me anyway!

So I emailed them and told them and the only reply I got was ‘what seminar do you want to change to?’ I mean can you believe that? Maybe I’m being a little dramatic but how about a “I’m sorry I wasted like 4 hours of your time when I was supposed to be the one doing it and didn’t realise.” So rude.

After I emailed her which seminar I wanted to change to they finally changed it after a few hours and yes I’ve been able to upload my assignment. FINALLY!

Motivational Monday?

So usually Mondays are the day I have ‘motivational’ posts mostly quotes that I like and find inspiring but I have had such a rough day today I just don’t have anything inspirational to say.

Before I tell you the story of my day I would like to point out that I really enjoy studying at Brock and there are always negatives and positives in everything. This particular incident happens to be negative.

So I’m taking a History course that I kind of had to take because I’m majoring in History so it’s mandatory but I was looking forward to it because it’s different than any other course I’ve ever taken before. It is slightly boring sometimes but it’s still pretty interesting most of the times. Unfortunately, the universe does not seem to want me to enjoy this course because for some reason something or the other comes up that ruins it.

Firstly, it’s on Monday morning. Like why? Juts why are there even lessons on Monday morning??

Secondly, my seminar got cancelled and they didn’t even email me about it which I thought was kind of unprofessional. Like you email me a bunch of university crap about events I couldn’t care less about but you don’t email me about my seminar being cancelled? To be fair it was shown on my schedule but I had just taken a screenshot of it earlier and I didn’t really bother checking again and I didn’t realise I would have had to. I’m also not used to checking everything online since it’s the first time I’m doing that and we never really did much online in Kenya.

That brings us to today. I had to hand in an assignment and apparently I can’t hand it in till I go to the Registrar’s Office and change my schedule. I started going to the Wednesday seminar but I hadn’t been able to officially change my schedule because it takes forever in the registrar’s office and I had gone there earlier but I waited for 2 hours and then had to leave because it wasn’t my turn yet and I had a class. And no one told me that I would have to go to the Registrar’s Office before I have to hand in the assignment. Is it really that hard to give me those details? I’m a new student and I don’t know how the system works. So now I need to go tomorrow and get it done before 2 in the afternoon and I’ll have to miss my Earth Science lecture because there’s not other way and I’m so mad because I’m already falling behind in Earth Science and I like going for the lecture because at least with the explanations I can understand better.

I mean everything is online in this university so why do I have to go to the stupid office for the seminar? And they’re the ones who cancelled the seminar so isn’t it their job to put me in another one? I feel like they’re trying to make me do their job for them and I hate that.

Sorry for the rant I’m just very mad right now.

My Classes And Joining A Club

Philosophy– Okay so this is my new favourite subject!! It’s so deep and interesting and it’s the only subjecting where having multiple existential crisis actually helps you get good marks! And the cherry on top? My professor is absolutely hilarious and looks like George Lucas!

Psychology- So we’re basically learning stuff I’ve learnt in High School again which is awesome because it means I don’t have to work excessively hard and I already understand what the professor is talking about!

Sociology- It’s REALLY interesting!! I am going to learn about Karl Marx soon which I’m really looking forward to!

Earth Science- Okay I’m not going to lie it’s a lot more difficult than I thought it was but it’s also really interesting! Minus when we learn about rocks. That’s kind of boring to me.

History- Okay again I’m not going to lie the course I’m taking right now is boring. It’s not horrible it’s just a bit boring. I mean how much can you know about The British Isles? Apparently a lot.

And the club I joined was of course *drum roll* CREATIVE WRITERS CLUB!! The boy who’s in charge of it looks a bit like Augustus from The Fault In Our Stars 😂 I really hope he doesn’t read this post…

An Update!

So I have finally selected all my courses and decided which subjects I’m going to take this year! I just wanted to keep you guys posted about what’s going on with my university process currently.

So I have to take one social science credit, one science credit and any two elective credits. I have decided to take Sociology, Philosophy, Psychology and Earth Science. And of course I have to take one credit for History which is what my major is.

Earth Science is about the planet and stuff to do with it which sounded like so much fun to learn because I am already interested in all that!

I wanted to take English Literature and German too but unfortunately they were clashing with other subjects I am taking so I couldn’t take them but maybe next year! I also wanted to do Political Science but that was clashing too and the first year credits seemed kind of lame so I’ll take it next year!

Did you ever do any of those subjects in university and if so let me know in the comments what they were like!
