ugh, how childish and inconsiderate! 😦 I’m so sorry. I hope you’re feeling a little better now. *tight hugs*

It really, really was.  *hugs*  But I did feel much better after I
woke up this morning.  (And when I woke up with cramps, suddenly the
wild emotional swings of last night made sense.  -.-;;;  Fuck, I”m so
predictable with those mood swings, it’s ridiculous.  I should have
known last night.  UGH.)

But yeah, I also expressed my displeasure
to the professor and the BEST thing was her advice: “well you should
picture it as something else when you run the example” and I just
STARED.  Like… I’D FUCKING LOVE TO.  But the blatantly sexual jokes
constantly flying around the room made that a bit difficult, you know?  
And on top of that, this was a topic we’d never been taught, that I
didn’t understand, and my classmates were, no offense to them, doing a
HORRIBLE job teaching it and were going way too fast and were
contributing to and playing into the awful jokes.

So I tuned them
out as best I could and started running a different example the way I
remember the professor teaching me to do it earlier and thought I’d
mostly gotten the hang of it.  BUT, I can’t tune out the class, tune out
the people teaching, TEACH MYSELF THE THING, create class notes to help
my friends who’ll need them later, AND mentally rewrite the examples
I’ve been given at the same time.  
I ONLY HAVE SO MUCH PROCESSING POWER.  

Which is what I told her, in a nutshell.  And after that little speech, I
think she realized how ridiculous a suggestion that was to begin with.

Like…
a student just told you that a topic in class triggered her into an
anxiety attack and the best you’ve got is “pretend it’s something
else?”  *headdesk*  Fucking honestly.

And the worst thing is that I
can’t really blame my classmates for picking that example, either, but
IT’S THE ONE THAT WAS BEST EXPLAINED IN THE TEXTBOOK.  So, I don’t blame
them for taking the easy way out, but… yet another example about how
everything in our culture is set up to sell sex.  And I’m SO. FUCKING.
SICK. OF. IT.

*sigh*  But, again, I AM feeling better after sleeping on it.  So, that’s not nothing.

oh no! what was it?

We were learning about ANCOVAs–something that was being taught to us by a fellow student because, long story short, our teacher couldn’t be bothered–and as an example, they picked the dataset about Viagra and libido.  And the entire class was about “Hehe, so basically Viagra doesn’t make a difference unless your partner already wants to fuck you” / ”I guess you could say about the covariate that you’re ‘PULLING IT OUT EHEHEHE” and other kinds of shit like that and I’M SORRY, BUT IT’S NOT FUNNY, IT’S NOT AMUSING, IT’S DISGUSTING, OMG, IT’S SO DISGUSTING AND IT’S NOT APPROPRIATE FOR CLASS, I DON’T CARE HOW OLD WE ARE AND I’M CLEARLY A LOT CLOSER TO SEX REPULSED THAN I THOUGHT I WAS.

I literally had a fucking anxiety attack in the middle of class and I was two seconds away from having to run to the bathroom to go throw up.

AND THEY FUCKED UP TEACHING ANCOVAs ON TOP OF IT.

I’m so fucking pissed off I can’t even tell you.

Hey, guys, I could use a little help here.  ^_^

I’m in the middle of a doctoral program at the moment (because one doctorate just isn’t enough anymore, don’t you know?  ^_^).  I’m pursuing an educational doctorate with an eye towards teaching at a university.  Anyway, I’m currently taking a class on statistics, and as part of that class, my cohort and I are conducting a brief survey.  This information will not be published, nor will it be used for any purpose outside of class.  Also, if you choose to participate, you will remain completely anonymous through the entire process.

The end date for this survey is Monday, July 11, 2016, and it would be a great help to me if you would consider participating.

Here is the link to the survey, if you’re interested: https://hofstra.co1.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_8qsroGreJjMEFBX

Thank you so much!

One last reblog, in case anyone would like to help me out.  ^_^  Thanks again to everyone who already has!

OK!  Critical review is done!  😀  Now, other than writing a few more sections for the lit review I just handed in (because my professor and I had a miscommunication snafu) I AM ALL CAUGHT UP ON ALL MY WORK AND I’M SO HAPPY I COULD CRY.  XD

And actually, apart from the snafu of how many sections she wanted an what constituted a section, she said that my lit review was going really well until it cut short.  So.  That’s not nothing.  ^_^  Especially because she’s kind of blunt with her feedback and apparently has made a few students cry.  O_o;;;  Not on purpose, but because she’s just… blunt.  If something’s wrong, she’ll tell you it’s wrong.  (And honestly, I’ve got a pretty thin skin usually, but prepped by her telling us that it’s not personal, it’s just how she gives feedback, her feedback… didn’t seem cruel to me or anything?  I mean, it really didn’t.  Then again, that might have just been because I was doing a good job.  IDK.  -.-;;;)

ANYWAY, the point is that for the first time in forever, I FEEL LIKE I CAN BREATHE and it’s wonderful.  ^_________^

Anyway.  I’m meeting @dreamer-wisher-liar to go see a show in a few hours, so I should probably shower and get dressed now.  ^_^  I hope you’re all having a great day and that you have a great weekend and those three languishing prompts will be coming soon, I PROMISE.  ^_____^

Later!
