A Long Day

Man. It's been a long day. Well, not really. I only had 4 hours of lessons but it sure felt long. What's more, I ended at 6pm because on Wednesdays I have my stupid Java programming classes. Well, It's 6:25pm right now and I'm in still in the classroom because I'm feeling a bit lazy to pack up and leave. So I thought why not blog a bit.

Today I was late for my Internet Computing lecture because I was too busy fighting Psycho Mantis last night and I thought I was going to get marked absent again. Fortunately, my class always has this habit of helping others mark their attendance on the attendance sheet. So I wasn't absent after all! And I even even know who helped me. When I asked my friend, she just told me that someone had helped mark everyone present, so I didn't ask any more. LoL~

I got a bit pissed during my programming class today because of my lousy teacher. Now because I was absent for 2 weeks, I was totally clueless today during the practical lesson and the teacher hardly helped me at all. One conversation went like this:

Teacher: "So how's it coming along?"

Me: "I don't really know, so I'm just reading the notes now."

Teacher: "Why don't you just do the getter and setter part first?"

Me: "Teacher, how ah? I not quite sure how."

Teacher: "Oh no. How are you going to continue like this?"

That's when I got irritated. Isn't it the teacher's job to help clear the student's doubts? Yet when I had one, he just brushed me off as if it was my fault. Even if it was my fault, at least he could refer me to a section in the book so I would read it up on my own and understand. In the end all I got was a shake of the head and no help at all. Total crap is what I say. No wonder so many people fail this module. I just bought the textbook today it's like 3 cm thick, it costs $33 which I think is a total waste of money.

In my experience here in poly, the thicker the book, the more useless it is. I don't know why, but it's always been like that. Haha.

Alright, I've gotta go now. The cleaning ladies are here and driving me away. Later.

Whoa.. Actually its kinda hard to teach programming.. Cuz its like picking up a new language and attempting to learn it from a book is really isnt easy! In fact, I didnt study my notes for my basic cprogramming.. Fortunately the lecturer was very patient with us during the lab lessons. I guess she understands that not alot(and i mean ALOT) can pick up programming just through plain reading of notes/textbooks.. Since ur lecture is such a jerk... have to ask ur frens then! Anyway, good luck! this stupid comment is way too long.. hahaha

*hurhurhur* Maybe you can ask me if you need help. BUT if it's OOP, then some parts I may not know =x Because from how you put it, it seems to be OOP. -_-" But i'll try to help...


Don't get pissed over such things. Maybe there's some misunderstandings or what... =)

Haha. Thanks Xinhui. Don't worry, I think I'll be able to cope somehow. It's OOP, so I can ask the java pro master, JJ. LoL~

You're right Jin, it's really hard to teach programming cause it's a totally different kind of thing. Wish I had a teacher like yours. =P
