Day 47: Santa Claus
I have had a trying time since yesterday when I blogged. Last night I went to my first accounting class. It was, in a word, horrible. Literally the worst class I have ever sat through. I feel bad for the professor because I realize that he is very knowledgable about accounting, he's just not cut out to teach a first year accounting class. It was completely confusing and I was definitely not the only one that felt that way. I've taken some accounting before and I still had absolutely no idea what he was talking about or what was going on. My only option is to drop this class because I know that I will not pass the course with him as my instructor. Unfortunately this was the only accounting class that fit with the other classes in my schedule for this semester. This is ultra unfortunate because I am supposed to do my first co-op work term this spring (May to August) and accounting is a requirement for me to be able to do that. Needless to say I was freaking out just a little bit last night after the class was over. Thankfully my options seemed more reasonable today once I'd slept off the initial upset. I am going to meet with the Chair of the HR Department on Friday afternoon to discuss the possibility of still being able to participate in my first co-op work term as long as I take accounting in the spring semester while I'm working, or in the fall. I really hope she decides it's alright. If I can't have this summer be my first work term I may have to extend the time it takes to get my degree by 8 months. This would mean graduating in a December rather than an April. Not really my original plan.
Here's to hoping she takes pity on my case and doesn't think I'm just a whiner!
Okay I now need to focus on doing some homework. Already! It begins.
