I graduated yesterday, and I'm already starting classes at a community college on Tuesday. In the fall, I'm attending a larger university.

exam statistics: complex analysis (math 304): mean: 5.5/25, median 4/25, mode: 0/25, SD 4/25, final: don't know, but many people get zero mark (at least that's what i heard from the TA's)

Yeah, I make no sense.

@ AngryBombshell:

I've been there when it comes to dealing with a shitty roommate. My first roommate in the first college I was at was nothing but a complete lying asshole of a jock. I like my video games, cause well, games are fun. But he would tell a couple neighbors that I didn't do anything but that and it really annoyed him..instead of coming to me (mind you I had a gf who kept me in her room for a week straight for nothing but sexy times, and sometimes including her roommate too). Now I brought the 360 and he brought the PS2 for his sports games, but the moment he gets a kingdom hearts game, he played that more than I was on any game combined. A lot, lot, worse happened which is why I can understand and be sympathetic about your post.

All I can really say for advice is just stay who you are. It's not worth it trying to waste your life away being somebody you're not for the sake of others, as that roommate of yours was doing. Also remember, no matter what people call you, that's not important. What's important is what you allow yourself to respond to. It's not what has happened to you that defines you, It's what you have made it through that truly defines your character.

Best of luck on your next experiences. If you can get into that better school, maybe it's what YOU deserve. Not just because of your ex-roommate and the drama, but because down the line, maybe you won't get a job because you didn't go to a better school. You never know, so take what life offers to the fullest.

Life is like a grindstone: either it wears you down or it will polish you into a fine jewel. Do what you will, but be yourself through it all.

Like most everyone here I imagine, I'm always looking into ways to pay for school. Grants, scholarships, working, selling blood, etc. Well, come Saturday, I'm actually organizing a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project (Donation Page is right here if you're curious) and given I've seen scholarships for most everything under the sun, I was wondering if any of you guys new of scholarships I might qualify for due to this, or where I might look for them. Thanks!

Averaged 71.8% this year, compared to 72.2% last year.

Pretty consistent.

I'm afraid I can't really help you there. I've had the same generic bookbag from high school, which was just a random purchase from walmart, that I didn't think much of. Hilariously enough, it has pretty much lasted forever.

Also, damn, the summer flies by. I have this week off, but my first day of class is the 20th, so I'll probably be moving in like Saturday or something.

Can I join? I'm currently in the Missouri Academy, second day.
It's like college, just like, there are rules and stuff. Check-in times and whatnot. I live in a dorm and will be taking college classes though.

It is no nice to only have to go to class three hours a day. Thursdays I only have one class. I just hope I don't underestimate the classes.

Need to start work on my vacation essay. 5000 words on the temperature of maximum density of water, followed up with a project proposal for the work I'll be doing next year.

So out of it. Haven't done anything in months, finding it really hard to make a start.

You spend less time in class, but you do spend more time out-of-class working. If you want to get anything out of the course, at least. Just keep that in mind, and you'll be fine.

Yeah. I could've moved in Thursday, but I figured it would be too early, none of my friends would be there to hang out with. Today was set aside for new students, and moving tomorrow gives me enough time to get settled, without showing up at the last minute. It just seems like a good in-between date.

They really push to get students acquainted with campus and it's really not even a big campus.

I'm really looking forward until Monday so I can get this show on the road.

Yeah, I remember my first year, we didn't go overboard with new student junk. I think we moved in Friday, and listened to motivational speakers each day over the weekend. Apart from that, we were set.

Well, tomorrow will be my first day back at uni. Quite strange to think that I'm in my final year already. Uni years really do fly by. This year seems like it's going to be a bit of a mixed bag. On the positive side, it's looking like I might have no classes on Tuesday and Friday so that saves me having to go up to Edinburgh those days. On the negative side, I have my dissertation to write which is apparently about a 60 page report. It will be the longest thing I've ever written but that's only part of it. I'll still have software to code.

I'll be so glad when this year is over. I'm fed up with education now. I just want to find myself a job and get on with life.

There is no formal admittance to most clubs in C&C. You pretty much just drop in and start typing!

Nope, we just get to wear what we please. I honestly haven't heard of a college/uni in the UK that has a dress code.

I believe it is legit, however i would prefer fastweb.com.

i'm not even sure if i should bother wasting my time with scholarships, they're too hard to get and not even worth it. is this true?

i have registered for seven courses this semester, as usual. surprisingly, i don't have to go to any classes on every wednesday so i am free to do whatever i want.

one thing i don't like about the courses is weekly assignments, classwork, and quizzes. i don't like to be forced to keep up with the lectures. since we are all adults, students should have the freedom to study at their own pace. if they underperform in exams, then they bear the consequence.

also, it is pointless to spend a lot of time revising the same material. you don't have to spend two hours on revision for one hour of lecture even if you are in some graduate classes.


Yeah, I make no sense.
