Yes it’s another rant but hey what you gonna do? As some of you may know I have been looking for work for that past 3 years and have found nothing. I know right its bull shit but hey what can you do?
So I have decided to re-educate myself and start a new career. I have decided to go to tafe and study I.T. (information technology.) You would think that people would be happy for me, and for the most part people are, but there is always one person who thinks you are doing the wrong thing and that person always seems to make themselves known above everyone one else! In my case it’s a family member who I will call SM for this (just in case she reads this and I swear I’ll never hear the end of it!) She insists on tell me that I’m “not smart enough” or I “don’t have the discipline”.
I am so completely over hearing this that I went to such drastic measures as to delete Facebook, and yes I know I have done that before so sue me! I have also stopped talking to other members of my family so there is absolutely no way I will get stuck listening to the negativity from SM.
I have tried to be nice and have responded with “I doesn’t matter SM it’s not like you paid for it, if I want to waste my money that’s my business” when what I really want to say is “go fuck yourself you daft old hag who hasn’t had a job in 5 years!”
So anyway I started tafe this week and I am enjoying it for the most part, but there is a group of girls and 2 boys in my class who are there simply to make sure they get their dole check and its fucking obvious that that is why they are there. They are disruptive and argumentative and just plain fucking annoying! Most people would probably say meh who cares just ignore them but seriously why pic a course that requires you to think if you don’t have 2 brain cells to rub together!
Another annoying thing about my class is, because I have been taught a few things already, the first few lessons have been extremely boring but I expected that. The people who seem to know very little about computers are all coming to me to ask for help and this means I am constantly being disrupted and interrupted even when there is something I don’t know and I’m trying to learn it! For fucks sake ask the fucking teacher it’s his or her fucking job to teach you not me!!! Grrrr!!!!!!
Finally I would like to bring to the attention of all teachers I know or who read my blog (there really is only one that I know of, you know who you are *waves*). If you set a homework task that involves reading information and answering questions on said information, don’t give questions related to something else that the student may have to research themselves WITHOUT TELLING THEM!!! I was the only person in the class who had the brains to look elsewhere, so everyone else (to the best of my knowledge) missed out on 35 marks out of 100 because they need everything spelled out for them. I know it should be the teacher’s responsibility to hold the hand of every fucking dumb arse who walks into their classroom, but as a teacher shouldn’t you assume that your student know nothing?
Ok so that is the end of my rant about school for this post, but don’t think I won’t be bitching more!
