Quoting Bunny Belly:" Which would be awesome! Lol assuming you could handle college students- I'm only going to a community college as of right now, and some of the morons there just BAFFLE me."


Oh my god, I thought I was in the twilight zone when I went to community college for a semester. I was 85% done with my bachelor's degree, but didn't want to sit doing nothing the semester I took off... so I took some classes at a community college.



I took a fucking comedy film class in which we just watched funny movies the whole time and took multiple choice tests... I was the only person in my class who got above an 80% on the midterm. I was like.... really? :? I didn't even watch two of these movies, people.

Maybe its just us michiganders then, lol. My mom's cousin and a girl I've known since elementary school are both Corinna, pronounced Ka-ree-nah.
I also know a Corinne, kah-rin




Either way it's a pretty name, just not the spelling I'm used to, heh.

Ah, I gotcha.



I'm so frustrated with all the names I really love being nixed by BF. :x hahaha

Answering two of you at once, lol.



I get a little pissy with the people in my classes. One is full of younger people who are laughing and giggling the whole time.... seriously? Someone is paying for you to be here, gtfo if you're going to take away from the ones who want at least SOME kind of education.



The other class isn't too bad, it's mostly older folks, but several of them ask me the SAME questions EVERY class, when the teacher has explained them multiple times. Definitely works on my patience!

Oh, man. Gotta love those people.



I was in one evening class that was AMAZING and mostly older folks, but all my day classes were dumbass 18-19 year olds whom I had very little in common with. And a former meth head stripper who sat in front of me and used to ask me questions all the time... at least she was funny and cracked jokes with me, though.

My SO complains about the same thing, lol. He is 31 years old and he made the mistake of taking an entry level Astronomy course as an elective this semester. He says it's full of "mouthy little shits" as he refers to them - spoiled kids who don't take it seriously.

Yeah, I think that's my problem. I'm the only parent in the first class, and I'm just going through these courses to get my AS and progress. Noone else seems to know what they want to do.



Aaand, the class start 8 am, and one of the days I usually end up working afterwards. I'm grumpy in general haha

Lol I'm only 20! I just don't understand the point in going to college if you don't want to be there.... GRRR.

Oh, I completely agree! I went when I was 19 (I'm only 23 now) and I went to a college that was geared towards adults and honestly, sitting in class was a pleasure, I loved it. I am afraid to go to a big university this time around because I'm just easily annoyed with other people my age. (as a rule, my best friend in college was a girl my own age and she wasn't a whiny twat lol)

One of my friends was doing online tech support with a woman who introduced herself as Gcobisa. I can't find a pronunciation anywhere. I think it's South African, though.

Ha! It's always nice to find people that have some form of respect at a younger age :P



I have no idea how a university would be, I've always assumed it was something I chose not to do :P

I probably wouldn't choose to do a university, either, but he's going to be going to graduate school in Houston, so I think a majority of the schools down there will be pretty big.
