Current mood: Crazed, homicidal, neurotic, pissed off
Oh well, my Grandfather always said “It’s better to be pissed off, than pissed on”
I went to talk to my adviser today, he was actually in a really good mood. That doesn’t happen often, it wasn’t at all like the last visit. He actually seemed like he wanted to help me.
I got a letter from the lovely people at the student loan company informing me that my graduation date had been updated…to May 2009. WTF? It is supposed to be December 2008! So I then panic and pace back and forth through the house scaring the bejezus out of the dogs. I calm down just long enough to send an email to RF politely asking to meet with him at his convenience then return to pacing and freaking the fuck out.
I went in today and RF looked at my credits and said that I will be one hour short. OK, again, one hour, not one course, one fucking hour! He actually pushed his chair back from his desk like he is used to having undergrads come over it and attack him. He said exactly what my friend Tim predicted he would. “Come back in April after you pick your Summer and Fall courses and we will see where we are then.”
I was on the fence about graduating in December because I really want to take a capstone course from my French Rev professor, all of the others until now looked terrible. Today RF told me that Stuart England is being taught as a capstone in the fall. If I can graduate in December, I want to take that one instead of waiting for Dr. S. I need to get the hell out of there before they find another reason to keep me there.
The upside of today is that I might have inadvertently shamed some of my classmates into going to vote in the democratic primary!
