This post contains swearing....because there is no way you can talk about ships stability without swearing.... I woke up with a pounding headache this morning. I really don't give two shits about the superbowl but, an excuse to drink is always welcome. Thank god I woke up at 2 in the morning and decided I couldn't go back to bed without consuming handfuls of honey nut cheerios - I think this is the only thing that saved me and made me somewhat presentable this morning. I wore an extra cute outfit (because that's what you do when you feel disgusting) and shuffled to the mess deck for some coffee - I also took 2 tylenol 500s (I wasn't sure if that was a good idea but I figured it probably wouldn't kill me...I'll have to look up the correct dose on webmd).
I plopped myself down in the classroom and within 15 minutes of class the instructor was diving into trigonometry and differential equations - I looked at the guy sitting next to me and said 'you've got to be shittin' me'!!! Have you ever taken the dog for a walk and when you are two blocks from home the dog decides to sit down? So then you are in the middle of the road and it looks like you abuse your pets because you're pulling as hard as you can on the leash and the collar is coming up around their ears.....please tell me someone else has had this experience at least once. Okay, well, pretend my brain is that lazy assed dog. I just couldn't get it to move!!!!
The instructor started drawing sin curves - and then he started talking about radians - and then he started drawing radian lines on the sin curve - WHAT THE FUCK. Then he started going on about how you could use rads instead of degrees - why would you do that when you could just use degrees?! He's up at the front of the classroom drawing and scratching and gesticulating towards the white board - he finally turns around and looks at us looking at him and says, 'I'm looking at a bunch of stunned turtles'. Talking about adding insult to injury! Now I'm a hungover stunned turtle who's brain won't budge!
Here's the real kicker - we were assigned homework! No shit. HOMEWORK! There were three problems. I was sitting in the classroom until 8 pm! The last problem took me an hour and 15 minutes. That is just not right!
disclaimer: our instructor is actually very good...by the end of the day I was getting back in the swing of things...my plan is to actually write a post about ships stability (sometime soon) - especially since I've vented and feel much better :)
