I don't hate my mentor. It's more an intense dislike. Everyday it becomes more apparent that she does not not what she talking about. She wants to teach about renewable energy, but she is a lawyer that has no interest in science or learning anything.
If I make her a powerpoint on the science topics she wants to teach, she edits them without my knowledge and presents them to the elementary school kids in our program. Then, she asks me to explain concepts because the changes she made to the powerpoint are, not only confusing, but completely wrong. I have no clue why she feels to need to edit everything I do, or why does not seem to care when I politely point out the errors in her changes.
She tells me to be at work by 9a.m. but does not show up until almost noon. Every now and then she shows up on time. If I happen to be 10 minutes late, she is angry.
She talks and talks and talks all day long, repeating herself constantly. I get so irritated.
She drives like a manaic and refuses to look both ways before crossing the street. I fear being in her car, but I can't drive yet.
She makes enemies everywhere she goes by saying tactless and mean things. I don't want to become associated with her if it harms my career.
I'm not learning anything I did not already know. She took me to look at a solar farm. I cannot write that I looked at a solar farm on my resume. How is this helping my career?
She passes off a lot of my work as her own as if she did it herself and I was just the assistant in the background.
She tells me to do pointless assignments that are not even relevant to the job.
Messing around at work...
I want to go home.
26 kindergarteners dead!!! What the f***! This is crazy.
I went somewhere new today to do something different. It was fun.
Of course, my father is extremely kind and transported me to and from. (He fell asleep while waiting because he had no interest in the class.) Its just impossible for me to communicate how much I appreciate him. "Thank you," and hugs doesn't cover it...but its all I can offer.
Apparently, my yard is not ideal for a rain garden but if I get my community together we can put one at the bottom of our street...
I need to start BS'ing more on my school work. Especially, the last minute ones. They earn me high passing grades and raves on my creativity and unique insight.
6 days until final
My brother in law made me a sandwich. I picked out the things I didn't like and now I think he is upset with me. I suppose I should have ate the cucumbers and mushrooms and attempted not to vomit when he told me to try it. I apologized and thanked him for even thinking to make something for me.
My law teacher told me that me that my writing is awkward and I use too many words. Is that a good enough reason to remove 11% from my paper that covered all of the assignment criteria? There were only two grammatical errors; they were already accounted for in the grading rubric. I don't understand why he dislikes my writing. My environmental teacher loves my writing and leaves explanatory feedback on all of my assignments.
My mom lied and told my older sister that I though she was stupid. I actually said, "I don't think math is Tierra's strong point is math but she is an extraordinary writer." I meant: Tierra is great with math, but greater at writing. Now Tierra won't talk to me.
I feel like a terrible person.
My mentor knows nothing about science yet she edits my powerpoint. Ordinarily, I would have no problems with this. However, the information she added was both irrelevant and incorrect. I tried to tell her as politely as possible but she didn't care. She said the students would not be able to tell us otherwise. How can you teach something you know nothing about?
It's my birthday, by the way.
For my birthday tomorrow, I'm going to take shots. Legally, this time. Lol.
"Either God wants to abolish evil, and cannot; or he can, but does not want to. If he wants to, but cannot, he is impotent. If he can, but does not want to, he is wicked. If God can abolish evil, and God really wants to do it, why is there evil in the world?"
My gave me some coconut rum and it made feel very tingly pretty fast. I already have problems copying math from the screen to my paper. ( I often swithc numbers, like 4 and 9, and throws the answer way off.) I suppose I should just go to sleep and finish the maht in the morning. The rum was tasty though. I'd be lie ing if I said I never drank before. However, this is the first time I've been buzzzed. Well, my bday next week so then it be okay.
