College is boring.


Written on 2:02 PM by DRV

It's been a while since I've last blogged. I guess you can say I've been busy. Quite a bit has happened, but then again--almost nothing has changed.

I still have a curfew, so that's one thing that bothers me.
I drive more often, but I still don't have a car of my own.
I'm a full-fledged member of Akbayan, but I'm not sure I'm ready to get back into PCN mold.
I've visited Independence and know that the school has gotten worse since I left.

But yeah, I guess I'm supposed to talk about college.

On Mondays and Wednesdays, I only have MATH 8, which is College Algebra & Trigonometry. Easy class, right? Wrong. I consider myself okay at math, and considering this is a kind of low class, it should be easy, but it's not. I'm taking the route of blaming the teacher. But serious, the teacher sucks. Professor Malyshev has an accent that NOBODY can understand. The highest grade in this class is a B-. Enough said. I have a B- with the rest of the supposed smart people.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are slightly more interested with my two classes. I have MCOM 72 and ENGL 1A at 1:30 and 3:00 respectively. MCOM is a pretty damn intimidating class because the professor is a former broadcast great. He's a demanding individual who expects his students to be well-informed of current events. But it's hard. Really hard. English, I can safely say, is my easiest class. It's mostly grammar and writing, I'm fairly good at both.

And Friday... ugh, Friday. 3-hour Public Speaking course at 10:30. It's ridiculously boring, and I'm doing okay in that class. I have around an A-, and I know I can do much better, it's just that the coursework hardly interests me.

Now aside from the classes, the main reason why I'm bored is that I hardly see my friends. I know college is supposed to be about meeting new people with new experiences--but how the hell is that possible when you only see certain people in class? I've made one new friend--Lawrence. The only reason this is is because I have him for both my classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. If not for that common thread, we probably wouldn't talk to each other.

The main reason I chose San Jose State over schools like UOP and SF State was because most of my friends are there. If I knew I'd hardly see anybody, I would've moved! This whole meeting new people thing is stupid. I like meeting new people. I love meeting new people, but it's damn impossible. What am I supposed do? Randomly ask somebody walking around if they want to be my friend? I don't think it works that way.

I hope it eventually changes, especially after I become a full-fledged Akbayan intern. I know that I have myself to blame. I don't have a cell phone, so I guess that's my fault.

But yeah, college? Overrated. I'm doing well in my classes but hardly see people I call friends. *sigh*
