Going for your masters degree online is one of the most annoying things in the entire world. Like, is it even worth it to have a decent job anymore?
Group projects? I’m a f*cking adult capable of doing my own work. Why do I have to engage in this preposterous activity and also rely on complete strangers to carry their own weight?
And then when they don’t because they’re useless, I have to pick up the slack and they still get credit even though I filled out a complaint form with supporting documents such as emails and text messages with them admitting to not doing any work!
The discussions. Please, kill me. I can only respond to so many ridiculous posts. If the initial post is thoughtless or incoherent, how am I supposed to respond? I don’t even know what you’re saying, so I can’t possibly answer you… but I have to have a minimum of 8 responses done per week, on 4 or more different days. So it’s a struggle just to make 8, and just to be inconvenient, they can’t all be done on one day. Thanks. Thanks for making online classes more annoying by creating an ‘attendance’ tracker.
Speaking of discussions, they’re discussions. They’re not ‘copy the entire chapter from the online book and post it as your discussion’. I get super irritated when a post is too long and it fills up more than the entire screen, causing the blue ‘unread’ dot to stay present on the thread.
I might have a touch of OCD.
Actually I have OCD. I DID A GROUP PROJECT ON IT LAST WEEK!
For the love of god, if you’re going for your masters, you should just be smarter. Period.
Much love and good luck ladies and gents,
