I am procrastinating. again. yet again. I have a
midterm tomorrow in quality control bright and early
in the morning and i have not peeked at the book yet.
i will do so tonight after watching amazing race in
about 20 minutes.
I think I'm spoiled by the fact that I generally know what is testable and what is not testable material. That, and the fact that I don't agree with academic schooling equating in job-readiness. Even though BCIT is known for "preparing British Columbians with job-ready skills", their teaching format, however, does not.
I don't get why or how the lab portion can be worth more than the practical knowledge and how topics such as "Operations Management" can be even worth credits in my Food Technology program. I'm sure it would be worth something at a university, but in a polytechnic institution that should be preparing people for the working world...I don't see how drawing flowcharts with the correct shapes and arrows would aid in the working world.
But that's just me.
Speaking of operations management...I find it somewhat funny, annoying and endearing at the same time my OPMT instructor paces back and forth during the lecture. I see everyone's head following his steps, it's like watching a tennis match man! Hilarious. Perhaps he, like the rest of us, is trying desparately to stay awake.
Guess what? I HAVE been working on a new page. A new format, but I have been procrastinating on that as well. I choose (consciously or UNconsciously) to change when others least expect me to. And I don't think anyone right now remembers that I have a journal! I plan to let people in RL know this time, so the new journal will be somewhat more censored than before.
I think this is what I need....to open the doors and breathe a little. Fresh air is good.
