I am not having a good day today :( It seems like everything has been going wrong since I woke up. I hate it when I have days like today. I am just fresh out of things to write about today...well I can think of things but I just don't have to energy to actually write today.
One reason I am not having a good day is because of this certain class I am taking right now. Intermediate Microeconomics...the bane of my existence. It is a class I have to take and pass with a C to graduate. It is only offered once a year at one time. It is only taught by one teacher, never anyone else. This teacher doesn't teach very well in my opinion. He just rambles about whatever he wants to talk about. When he tries to teach us math, he goes through the problems so fast we don't really realize what he did. When we ask him questions, he tells us the answer in a very condescending manner and always says it is 8th grade math and we should know it. I am literally terrified to ask a question. He is on his own time schedule. If he wants to be late, he is late...even if it is 45 minutes late to a test (not even joking), but if we are late we get locked out. I got locked out a couple weeks ago. Today, I was about 7 or 8 minutes late and he happened to be in the class already. I opened the door and he told me to leave...but he drew out his answer. In front of the whole class he debated whether or not he should let me enter, then eventually came to the answer that I could not enter. I shut the door and burst into tears. Luckily, a classmate from one of my other classes was in the hall when it happened and talked to me for about 30 minutes and made me feel a lot better. I am so stressed because I am not doing well in this class at all. He says he will curve the grades at the end, but I am still so worried. I have done decently on the first two tests. One of them was actually really good. Then I took the 3rd test a couple weeks ago. I did the front sheet okay, then I turned it over and literally had no idea what to do or where to start. It was an enormous math problem that I didn't study or even remember talking about. I just tried to figure it out, but he said to turn in the papers and I had only done part 1 out of 5 or 6. Part 1 was that smallest part and likely will be weighted the least. Did I mention the tests only have about 5-10 questions. If you miss 1 or 2, you are done. That one was 6 and I know I missed at least 2. I estimate I probably got about a 40. I most likely will fail this class. I have never failed anything before. He might curve my grade up to a C if I am lucky. I really don't care how bad a C will hurt my GPA, I just want to pass the class so I don't have to take anymore of his classes. I just don't learn anything from him and he terrifies me. I just like to use my blog as a journal so I can remember all of this when I look back, so I felt like I needed to get this out. I just don't know what to do. None of my family gets how this class is affecting me. They just assume I am overreacting because I always stress but always do well. The only way I will do well in this class is if my grade gets curved way up. Please say a prayer that I do well in this class.
