world class.

February 16, 2009 at 1:20 pm (Uncategorized)

year after year we read about graduates who make the grade but don’t meet the expectations of the real world.

year after year, we get the same backlash from lecturers, telling us to pull our socks up and become “world-class” graduates.

year after year, we get the bad name, we get the blame.

oh how i wish they were all in the lecture hall this morning. then they’ll see the kind of ‘education’ those so-called ‘lecturers’ dish out to us students. instead of talking about the given topic, one lecturer spent an hour talking about his experiences studying abroad, emphasising the fact that he was given a scholarship by the said country he was studying in. he even made us copy effing notes on that. notes. on stupid minuscule things that had absolutely nothing to do with the topic. if we didn’t, he’d remind us what lucky bastards we were to bask in the presence of his glory because he normally gets paid half a thousand to teach outside. he was also busy making crude jokes, which, surprise surprise, had a majority of the class in stitches. and the cherry on top was showing what a chauvinistic pig he was by putting women down, mocking and mimicking them in front of the whole class. half the time, the lecturer and his fellow ‘academicians’ were laughing and giggling like little school girls. it was like watching a badly¬† rehearsed puppet show meant for pre-schoolers.

with such excellence and finesse in the teaching staff, how can we NOT churn out first class graduates who think globally and see beyond the horizon?

sigh.

just two more months. and then i’m done with this dump. and i’m never sending my children here. EVER.

stupid cupid.

you would think that your significant other would try hard enough to even bother going out and getting you a freakin’ card after being together for quite some time. you’d think that some appreciation would be shown on this supposed “lovers’ day”. a simple email would suffice, or even a cheesy flashy e-card that i would normally scoff at and make fun of. all it takes is just prolly less than 5 minutes of your time. and some effort on your part.

but no. apparently i’m not worth all that; in fact, i’m worth jack, probably.

forever and ever, you say.

today i felt like i had nobody, not even you.

thanks for making me feel so effing loved on this day.
