College: FMCC Edition Part IV

Overall I have to say that I am very pleased with my decision to transfer to far anyways.  One thing I've noticed that is different is the professors.  At FM none of my professors are doctors, and none of them seem very arrogant and talk to their students like they are better than them.  In all of my classes the professors told their stories of how they made it to where they are today to show that they can relate to many of us.  They all seem so much more down to earth and like normal people, that wasn't the case at Oneonta at all in my opinion.  At Oneonta almost all of my professors were doctors and almost all of them were very arrogant and cocky.  I also enjoy walking through the hallway and seeing people I went to high school with, its comforting to me.  Not only that, but one of my professors knows my family and used to work with my father.  So I'm definately getting more of a "homey" and comfortable feel at FMCC.  I am very happy to be back in school as well.  I'm in such a better mood and feeling so much better about myself now that I'm getting up every day, getting dressed and doing something.  I really haven't had to do that since early October.  I get a sense of pride from going to school full time and working part time and I just feel so much better in general.  I like all of my classes as well as my professors so far. . .So as I said, I'm pretty happy with my decision and I hope everything continues to go well :)

College: FMCC Edition Part III

Today I had my other 3 classes.  First I had Bar and Beverage Management.  The professor for this class is the only female professor that I have, but I really like her.  She is very bubbly and she seems very happy in her profession.  I'm excited for the class not only because its essentially bartending class, but because she seems like a very fun professor as well.  The next class I had was General Psychology and oh my goodness let me tell you about this professor.  First of all he was about 5 minutes late for the class.  He walks in and he is this short, slightly balding, hardcore hippie wearing a leather Harley Davidson like jacket, a beard, black jeans and circle shaped glasses.  He throws down his jacket and underneath he is wearing a black button up with the top few buttons undone exposing his chest hair.  Without saying much of anything he starts playing this youtube video:

His name is Marty Friedman. . .I don't know about you but when an older gentleman's name is Marty I immediately assume he is a hippie.  He seems pretty cool, but his voice is very monotone and I can see myself falling asleep in his class.  Then for my final class of the day, I had Anatomy and Physiology.  Its a 3 hour night class, luckily I have a very attractive professor who, as soon as I walked in the room said to me, "so what's your name pretty lady."  He looks and reminds me very much of Mr. Schoff <3 He is very interesting and kept my attention for the full 3 hour class.  Best part: The seats recline!! lol  Well, its been another good day at college :)

Say What You Mean, and Mean What You Say

If you say you're going to do something,
Do it.
If you say you're going to be there,
Be there.
If you say you love me,
Show it.
Otherwise. . .
Just say goodbye.
Don't waste my time.

College: FMCC Edition Part II

So my second class that I took yesterday; English, was absolutely amazing.  When the professor was doing attendance he asked me if I was related to all of the Oesers in sprakers and Canajoharie, I said that I was and I asked him if he knew my dad.  Apparently he had worked with my dad an my uncle and he pretty much knew my whole family.  I absolutely love this professor, not because he knows my family but because you can really tell he loves what he is doing.  He is such a real person, and not the typical, arrogant professor.  He was very funny, easy going, and down to earth.  After class I went to one of the little loungy things to wait for my mom to pick me up, he came by and talked to me some more and I found out that I knew his son and he told me a few more stories about my grandfather and my dad, apparently my grandfather was his bus driver :P So I have to say all in all, yesterday was a very good day.  :)
