My crapped up stupid student life

30 May

Since, I flunked two major subjects last sem, that left me with two extra years in college. AND, an unorganized next semester, because major subjects in our department are meant to be taken seasonally, meaning I have to wait for a year to retake my back subjects.

This fucked up forced engineer life has kept me anxious the whole summer because 1.) the petition we sent to the department head has still not been approved even after two months of “consideration”, 2.) I have successfully sought for a willing professor to reteach one of the two subjects, but not willing enough to teach only 9 people, 3.) IF (and most likely) the petition is denied, I will have to manually enlist subjects I am bona fide to take this coming semester.

Like many other colleges and universities, manual enlistment can suck the blood out of my dead egg cell. Manual enlistment is synonymous to hair loss, dehydration, narcolepsy, heat stroke, violence, wasted childhood and suicide.

Okay, maybe that was a little overrated. The suicide part can be omitted.

All else remains.

So, anyway, to remedy my anxiousness, I have pre-enlisted subjects I want to take for this term. This is what the drafted schedule looks like.

What's in the box?

As you can see, there are instances in which more than one class is in one time frame, that is because, there is no guarantee that I can get all the subjects I have requested to take. Plus, the major subjects there are pending to be permitted because of my irregular status.

Now my constraints are:
1.) ChE subjects may be out of my league, if the petition is denied.
2.) Non-major subjects are definitely in demand. And I need 15 units of them.
3.) Freshmen and graduating students are priority in enlistments.
4.) I want a clean-cut schedule, with no break times. Breaks make me lazy.
5.) I don’t have the heart of a ChE student.

Registration is on Wednesday, and still there is no result of our petition.

What the hell do I do with my forced engineer life!

That’s that. I have no interest in sharing with you my grades. That’s just added humiliation for me.

    this is what we may refer to as a major ‘clusterfuck’.

    I hope everything works out Carizza. 😦

    ahmmm… manual enlistment was my life eons ago in college. so this pre-enlistment thing and online enlistment are so not me. boohoo! my life, I realized was the life of a loser. hahahha! pero kahit ganun, thank God I was able to finish my 4-year course in just 4 years.

    and yes, they way you described manual enlistment was what we had to contend with. it meant being in UP at the crack of dawn, lining up outside classrooms where enlistment of subjects were to be held. I so hated enlisting at the college of science. puro mga diyos ang mga nageenlist dun eh. but i would say those days were also the most fun for us. when you get your desired schedules, you go home feeling like you won the lotto (or sweepstakes, whatever was already applicable. hehehe)

    good luck. I still hope you get the subjects you want, and your petition yields positive results. and no more failing subjects this sem… 😉

      I will give my heart and soul to not fail anymore this sem, and the next semesters. The petition was denied, as expected.

      I am not enlisting GE subjects, only ES, which has the highest demand in the whole engineering college.

      And what did you mean by diyos nag-eenlist sa CS? HAHA, di ko naintindihan.

      At magpprepare na ako maya-maya. Dahil 5 am na naman ako gigising para umalis dito ng 5:30 at darating ako dun before 8 at kahit sarado pa ang department, hanggang second floor na ang pila haha.

        Mga diyos ang nageenlist sa CS kasi they decide how the enlistment would be… yung tinatawag noon na EPN (Enlistment priority number if that’s no longer being used in UP)…they decide kung according to the first three numbers of your student number ang gagamitin sa pila…or kung last three numbers sa student number. hay.

        lots of good luck for you. 🙂

        Oh ID na kasi ngayon. Bale, those who want to enlist give their IDs and then, fishbowl method.

    Back in college, I failed a couple of subjects, too. (Algebra. Yes I am that dumb with numbers). I also had to manually plot my schedule. It was fun! And you get to meet a wider variety of people rather than if you let your school plot the subjects for you. I hope that works for you in the end, Riz. 🙂

      I’ve been enlisting subjects manually since first year.

      And, it is just so…… depressing. HAHA. Really, you have to stay in school for three days, waiting in line.

    Ate, ang haggard lang ng schedule mo! Huwag mag-alala, pag natapos mo yan, makakaluwag ka na. Haaay, hirap talaga pag napilitan ka lang na kumuha ng course. Gusto ko pala yung blog mo, karamihan kasi nag-aagree ako eh. Di ko nga lang alam kung ano iko-comment ko. 😛

      June 1, 2010 at 5:53 pm

      Sino to?? HAHA joke! Hazeeeeeeeeeellll!!! IMY hindi ka nagrereply saken. HDY. Tsk.

      Anyway, ampanget ng schedule ko. CRS should burn in hell. HAHA.

      • Hazel

        June 4, 2010 at 4:28 pm

        Haha, tama. Panirang CRS yan, pahirapan din nung nakuha ko yung mga subjects ko. Buti nalang mabait yung dept. kaya medyo napagtiyagaan ko. Haha. Alam mo naman na ang onti lang sa lingg kaya keri pa yung ibang subjects.

        Ayun. :)) Dito na lang mun ako magbabasa ng mga updates sayo. Pag nagkita man tayo, kwento ka lang uli. 🙂

    wag kang mag-alala. isipin mo na lang gagraduate ka din.
    hindi man ngayon balang-araw dadating din yun… pagdating ng panahon.
    pero srsly, ewan ko. sa amin din yung mga che eh seasonal din yung pagrelease nila ng mga subjects kaya kung bumagsak ka ang hirap talaga sa kanila.


    goodluck naman sayo..

    hindi pa ako nakakaenrol. awts.

    yung grades, wag ka/ baka di naman nagkakalayo mga grades natin. hakhak!

    • Carizza

      May 31, 2010 at 9:01 am

      Sa UP system seasonal ata talaga. Or, ewan ko. HAHA.

      Hindi pa rin ako nakakapag-enroll. Wala pa nga akong subjects e. HAHA.

      Yung grades, haha asa ka pa engr. Puro pula transcript ko. =))

    Ahahahaha halatang forced engineer ka nga ako kc dati unang pinakuha sakin eh maging Doctor ng mga baliw ewan ko ba bat gustong gusto ni Nanay na yon ang ipakuha sakin pinagbigyan ko naman sya ng 2yrs pero sobrang sama ng loob ko pag napapadaan ako sa Engineering Dept kc yon ang gusto ko after 2yrs pinagbigyan ko ang gusto ng puso ko nag enroll ako ng Engineering pero sinabi ko din kay nanay nong malapit nkong grumadyet ahahaha hindi kami nagimikan ni nanay ng matagal na panahon…

    mahirap tlga pag ayaw mo ng isang bagay tapos ipipilit tlga sayo 🙂 pero keep it up maganda naman ang course mo madali kang makakakuha kagad ng job pagkatapos 🙂

      HAHA. Natawa naman ako sa reaction mo. Halata talaga. Hehe. Hindi naman ako pinilit ng mga magulang ko mag-engineering. Ako lang ang may kasalanan, kasi nangopya lang ako ng course. HAHA. Hindi ko naman alam na papasa ako sa ChE kasi quota course yun, nagbasakali ako na IE ako pupunta. Tingin ko mas bagay sakin yun.

      Sana nga magbunga lahat ng paghihirap ko pag naka-graduate na ko.
