Update on my finals

So as of last night my instructor still had not sent the necessary feedback to complete my assignment that is due tomorrow (tomorrow which is July 4th) so fuck me if I wanted to get my work done early so I can celebrate the holiday with my family!
This afternoon she finally posts our feedback with this message,
"This is a reminder that your week 8 checkpoint: research paper revision is due tomorrow, but make sure you take time to celebrate Independence Day.  It only comes once a year.  Please let me know if you have any questions."
Ummm yes I have a do you expect me to "celebrate" when I am writing your damn paper at the last minute? All because you chose to turn your work in the last munte, now Im forced to do the same or I receive a daily penalty off of my grade for tardiness. Funny how a college instructor can have such expectations yet does not hold herself to those standards. What a good example she is setting for her students!

Closing out my recent class

So I have come to the end of my most recent Communications class and it is down to the finals, which is always a research paper. The norm in these classes is to turn in a rough draft of your paper and then a peer reviews it as well as the instructor, returns the paper with their feedback, you make corrections and resubmit it up to the last day of class. So I have an assignment that is due Sunday, two days from now, on how the feedback of the instructor and that of my peer has helped me to prepare my final paper. This assignment is 200-300 words long....the problem is, neither has actually submitted my feedback yet! Seeing this is a holiday weekend you would think people would want to turn their work in and get it out of the way...or at least turn it in so you can get it out of the way :-(
So much for professionalism on a college level.
