School Started. (aka 50 shades of emotions within 10 hours)

I had my first actual class in 1,5 years (last year I stayed away from school, apart from maturity exam) thanks to internship and thesis writing.

I started a class with 10 contact hours a week.
Interesting subject BUT. I learned that we need to write another thesis-like paper.


Then I find out it has to be only ten (10) pages long.


My favourite teacher of these 4,5 years of UAS continues, after me introducing myself, that he has enjoyed my texts for a couple of years already and he's really looking forward to reading the texts I'll produce this year, after finishing my thesis and knowing how to write as our school requires over 5 pages long reports to be written. (Teacher isn't too bad looking or old)


But then learn that learning diary must be written 1-2 pages of EACH class we have - 3 per week meaning 3-6 pages of writing per week PLUS the assignment. And I sit on the front row and the teacher keeps staring at me in the eyes...


AND after going through course schedule (and realizing this is only ONE course out of 3, this ends in October and continues with a similar course/part 2 with the same teachers Oct-Dec) we have a workshop, go through 5 different passenger types (course is Airline Business, yes, it's in English) and teacher gets the idea that he wants to see us ACT what we have learned instead of showing a boring PowerPoint presentation.


After class is over I sweat like a pig, walk to my favourite hairdresser and give her free hands to do WHATEVER she wants, as the last time I cut my hair was in September or October 2014 and I had NO idea what I wanted, I just had to cut my hair.

Say hello to 12-14 year old Lily! (bangs and all). Even my mum laughed at me and she has been having a REALLY bad day since yesterday.


And then I get home and check Moodle and emails for another course that starts tomorrow..
And this is how the emotions change..


Lectures and home exam and all the papers and links to relevant pages:


Term paper and the 4 different subjects we can choose from:


Book summary, book to be accepted by teacher, 8-10 pages:


And last but not least, ANOTHER term paper:
"Write an essay about the hey attractors[sic?] of the destination and how it is managed and marketed (how, where) by the local/regional tourism destination organization" 10 pages + sources etc.

Don't forget the extra assignments during the courses!


This was supposed to be easy 4 months at school before graduation...

EDIT: Forgot 2-3 exams (on the first class - 10 contact hours/week) where I have to score 80-100% in order to pass the course - otherwise I fail.

    1. Teen täällä lievää kuolemaa, ku tosta puuttuu vielä lokakuussa alkavan kurssin jutut.
      Mainitsin asiasta maikalle ja se käski laittaa viestii toiselle, joka periaatteessa vastaa siitä Lentokenttä kurssista.. Ja sitte se ehdotti että kirjottaisin vaan ainakin tuplasti sen sivumäärän ni voisin yhdistää kaks esseetä yheks.. Mulla on kolme eri vaihtoehtoa joista kirjottaa ja ne on joko liian suppeita tai liian laajoja tohon 10-30 sivun esseeseen (30 jos teen sen tuplana)....... Tappakaa mut.. Tai antakaa mun olla yksin koko aika että vaan kirjotan noita..

    2. Mut hei ainakin luentopäiväkirja menee helposti ku otat läppärin mukaan luennoille ja kirjotat siinä heti kaiken mahdollisen ylös! :D Eli sitä ei sit tarvii luultavasti luentojen ulkopuolella tehdä, maksimissaan vähän editoida sitä tekstiä. Eiks jeh?

    1. Kiitos! Rutistukseksi se meneekin, kun suurin osa deadlineistä olisi oikeasti 17.12, mutta itsellä on suunnitelmissa valmistua 18.12.. Eli opettajien kanssa pitää tehdä aikalailla erilaisia sopimuksia ja toisia deadlinejä ymsymsyms.
