FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Goddamn Mother****ing COLLEGE ARGH!!!!
Posted on Tuesday, July 8 2008 @ 19:00:52 PST

Yeah, i'm ****ing pissed off right now if you didn't notice.

I got a letter from my college in the mail two days ago saying I cannot get my degree because my degree conferral has been denied. After four years of working my ass off, receiving cum laude in the field of Education/History, and taking tons of classes to support that, I can't get my degree.

The reason? I one credit course (known as a CDDS course, usually taught for a whole weekend from 8 AM to 6 PM Friday and Saturday) I didn't attend because I registered out of it back in February because I was too busy with writing up my work project for the colloquium class, as well as writing up numerous projects in other history fields.

So in other words, because they didn't get the memo that I registered out of the class for one ****ing credit, I am not getting my diploma.

I am so ****ing pissed off, partly because they wait until JULY 2nd to send the ****ing letter to me, and the other part is because this is essentially preventing me from finding a real job, with student loans looming in December and teaching positions hard to ****ing come by to begin with.

Right now I am waiting a response from the school as to how to rectify this, because I never went to the class, and what they told me to do, contact the professor whom I never met and ask them what I need to submit to a class I never attended or to change my Incomplete to a actual grade, since there is a grade for the class, is obviously not an option. And frankly, I am not going to attend a class like this just to get a diploma, because it would meant the spending of more money for a weekend.

I ****ing hate this.
