Hello everyone! Well after coming back from my 8 month co-op with IBM I kind of lost interest in classes because I found out how pointless they really are and how it doesn't reflect whats going on in the real world, a bunch of theory and blah blah, get a grade, and your done. Anywho so I stopped going to a lot of my lectures. The lectures I'm still going to though are artificial intelligence, data structures and algorithms, and Spanish 2 because they force you to go or else you fail. Even though I did skip some of the classes and it was only my first week of classes! But I'm skipping Stats and Java <--- I already know Java Really I would skip all my lectures if I could but the other ones take attendance. I just feel like I don't get ANYTHING out of the lectures anymore. If I spent 50 minutes reading the book I would get more than going to a lecture. Does anyone else also do this or do you go to the lectures? I feel guilty when I don't go, like right now I'm debating to go to my Stats lecture, he assigned the problems that are due on Friday and posted them on the web. If I do these problems in 50 minutes instead of going to the lecture, I think I would get more out of it than attending his lecture and then doing the homework but there is a part of me that says, just go. Then the other part of me says, is it worth dragging yourself to class? Because I literally do drag myself to class on fore arm crutches. I basically hop like I broke my leg even though i broke my neck. 1 leg works fine the other doesn't work at all. I also never can find any handicap parking so I end up just putting my hazards on and getting a 15 dollar ticket 50% of the time. At least they don't tow my car. For 3 years straight I haven't missed 1 class but after coming back to school after my co-op and my accident I seem to despise school more than usual. Maybe I'm just getting sick of school. I've been going to school since 2003 to get a 4 year degree. Currently my GPA is a 3.64 but its slowly going down. My GPA use to be a 3.80. Only 3 semesters left! wee.
