I digress. I decided to take the weekend off from school. I figured it was worth a try. I'm all about the pasta theory, right? Throw enough at the wall and something is bound to stick.
As I left it Friday, I had emailed my course mentor and basically begged (yes, sadly that's what it's come to) him to give me some blanking resources so that I can figure this stuff out on my own. Remember? I'm not one who likes to be given answers. I learn best if I've had the opportunity to burn my fingers on the hot stove a few times. I mentioned in the email that I'm panicking because I'm in danger of not finishing all of the courses I need to, before the end of my 6 month term. I also BCCd Kelly, by student mentor. I followed that up with an email to Kelly asking her if I was asking the course mentor for something I shouldn't, i.e. are they not allowed to suggest other reading materials? Am I being too demanding? We'll see what the answers are from both. My guess is that they will both ignore my questions. I have reason to believe this because the course mentor has done this before. Honestly, I don't want to talk to the dude, I just want to be able to read some other materials and figure it out on my own. I don't even really care about learning the material at this point. I just want enough so that I can write something mildly intelligent so it at least sounds like I know what I'm talking about and I can be done with this class once and for all.
I'm not usually very self-confident and I abhor confrontation, but I truly believe that this class, Supply Chain, has some fundamental problems. These problems will only serve to compound any doubt that people (me) may have about this university and its legitimacy. I want this degree to be worth something at the end. Spending $12,000 for a piece of paper that is worthless, is not my idea of fun. (Yes, running 50 miles is, so what? Don't judge!)
