So today I went to the Registrar’s Office as I was told to do and after wasting my time going there and waiting in line and stuff I’m told *surprise surprise* the Registrar’s Office doesn’t do seminar changes! I can’t even write in words how angry and flabbergasted I was when I heard this! So it turns out the people who keep telling me to go to the Reg Office are the ones who are supposed to be doing the seminar thing for me anyway!
So I emailed them and told them and the only reply I got was ‘what seminar do you want to change to?’ I mean can you believe that? Maybe I’m being a little dramatic but how about a “I’m sorry I wasted like 4 hours of your time when I was supposed to be the one doing it and didn’t realise.” So rude.
After I emailed her which seminar I wanted to change to they finally changed it after a few hours and yes I’ve been able to upload my assignment. FINALLY!

So usually Mondays are the day I have ‘motivational’ posts mostly quotes that I like and find inspiring but I have had such a rough day today I just don’t have anything inspirational to say.
Before I tell you the story of my day I would like to point out that I really enjoy studying at Brock and there are always negatives and positives in everything. This particular incident happens to be negative.
So I’m taking a History course that I kind of had to take because I’m majoring in History so it’s mandatory but I was looking forward to it because it’s different than any other course I’ve ever taken before. It is slightly boring sometimes but it’s still pretty interesting most of the times. Unfortunately, the universe does not seem to want me to enjoy this course because for some reason something or the other comes up that ruins it.
Firstly, it’s on Monday morning. Like why? Juts why are there even lessons on Monday morning??
Secondly, my seminar got cancelled and they didn’t even email me about it which I thought was kind of unprofessional. Like you email me a bunch of university crap about events I couldn’t care less about but you don’t email me about my seminar being cancelled? To be fair it was shown on my schedule but I had just taken a screenshot of it earlier and I didn’t really bother checking again and I didn’t realise I would have had to. I’m also not used to checking everything online since it’s the first time I’m doing that and we never really did much online in Kenya.
That brings us to today. I had to hand in an assignment and apparently I can’t hand it in till I go to the Registrar’s Office and change my schedule. I started going to the Wednesday seminar but I hadn’t been able to officially change my schedule because it takes forever in the registrar’s office and I had gone there earlier but I waited for 2 hours and then had to leave because it wasn’t my turn yet and I had a class. And no one told me that I would have to go to the Registrar’s Office before I have to hand in the assignment. Is it really that hard to give me those details? I’m a new student and I don’t know how the system works. So now I need to go tomorrow and get it done before 2 in the afternoon and I’ll have to miss my Earth Science lecture because there’s not other way and I’m so mad because I’m already falling behind in Earth Science and I like going for the lecture because at least with the explanations I can understand better.
I mean everything is online in this university so why do I have to go to the stupid office for the seminar? And they’re the ones who cancelled the seminar so isn’t it their job to put me in another one? I feel like they’re trying to make me do their job for them and I hate that.
Sorry for the rant I’m just very mad right now.
