I AM FRUSTRATED....(don't read if you are easily offended)

....So frustrated that I began to understand those ppl that do massive shoot-outs.

I believe that some of you have seen my Web 2.0 project on YT, the one about my passion for makeup. That was basically for my stupid ass Computing in Business Environment, in which we have to have a blog, do a video, etc. The total for that project is 70, guess what I got.....21. Yes, twenty fucking one!! I was soooooooooo frustrated I cried for like an hour and had to take 4 benadryls to calm down.

After I was calmed down (aka doped up), I looked at what I got points taken off from, and apparently they couldn't open the attachment I submitted. The attachments contained my sources and a story board, which were together 30 points. Also, they said that I didn't mention how ppl could interact with me, which is another 20 points.

Well, DOUCHBAG TAs! If you had enough patience to watch a 2 minute video til the end, you will know how I asked ppl to interact. If you weren't a lazy ass bitch ho, you would've had the courtesy to say:"Hey you! We received your project, but we couldn't open the attachments, can you submit again"? There is a reason why all of them are so constipated and miserable: They are all too FUGLY to get laid. I'm sure that if just ONE of them could get a decent looking human being, none of this would've happened. I did everything I needed to do to get the 70 points.

Oh, and get this! Apparently doing a voice over is "Simpler" than using a copyrighted song w/o permission. There are loads of students just posted some pics of themselves and used songs like "let me smack your ass, you bitch ass ho", and that was considered "complex media". So, creating a video and doing voice over is just child play.

And excuse me for a sec, HOW IS THIS SUPPOSED TO BE FOR BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT?!! We don't need to know how to do YT to get a job. We don't need to know how to do a blog to get a job. We certainly don't need to know what an "open source software" is to get a job. If I remember correctly, I didn't know ANY of this when I got a job at MAC, making semi-good money for someone who's 19 (and many ppl older than that want that position too). I don't need any of the stuff I'm learning to survive in the world. The TAs think they are all uber intelligent because they got an A in a stupid ass class that no one takes, well I know what the deal is! They are making min. wage and NOT getting laid. They have to wear ugly ass clothes too (they do it with pride....fucking nerds)!

This makes me very disappointed. This is one of the hw that I acutally DID! Yes, I have friends in all of my classes, and we all know what happens when you have friends in the same class and all the work are just submitted online. But I actually did this!! Ironically, I get perfect grades when I "collaborate", but when I do something by myself, I get 21/70. What does that tell you about me? It obviously didn't make my Sunday bright and shiny. I swear, if I ever become a TA, I would give everyone A's, because I never EVER want ppl to wish that I have AIDS (Yes, I wish my TA's have AIDS....from screwing an ape b/c humans think my TA's are way too ugly).

Rant over. Peace.
Tao

EDIT: The reason I'm so mad is because I TALKED TO MY TA. I messaged them, emailed them, called them. The answer I got: " The deadline's past. We are sorry but we couldn't do anything". IF YOU TOLD ME EARLIER I WOULD'VE CHANGED IT! How am I supposed to know that you can't open the damn file? I thought EVERYONE had microsoft works. This is my personal blog, the fact that I'm bitchy/immature is a characteristic of someone who's REALLY angry. Don't give me the "You should be more mature" bullshit. This is, after all, a RANT.

i'm sorry hun. did you try talking to your TA or anything? you should really tell them something! i hope you feel better. *hugs*

Zelly said...

Im sorry Tao. You really should try talking to your TA. I know it's easier said than done when you're not feeling so good. I hope you feel better. x0x0x0x

Mocha said...

I think the people that were responsible for the shoot-outs were really depressed....
About the TAs though - thats kinda mean. =/
Maybe it's because they're all either either looking to finish their PhDs, or they hate school just as much as you do... But yeah, talking to them would help..

--- said...

For someone in college you're not handling the situation very maturely. I understand its your grade but instead of ranting and cursing on a blog why don't you talk to your TAs one on one? Or even your actual proffessor. I'm 17 and have more common sense than to write malicious feelings on a blog that can be shown to your TA's and get you into even more trouble.

mayaari said...

that sucks about what happened, but is there any way that you could talk to the TA or your professor? I mean, you did all the work and you should get some credit for those points that the TA took off if you could resend the material.

iamgrape1119 said...

To ---, here's the thing. I DID TRY TO TALK TO THEM. They gave me the "It's past the deadline, so you are on your own" bullshit. Yes, I know I'm not handle this maturely, but this is my way of releasing frustration. You don't REALLY want me to go and shoot ppl, right?

ilovewendydarling said...

I am so on the same page as you right now! Except I'm dealing with my ex-psychotic roomie.

I seriously hope your TA's will re-consider. That is so lame that they're being ass holes about it.

TA's have this idea that they're superior over everyone type of BS mind set. I hate that too.

If it helps, I would def. go to the dean and talk to him/her about it and have their ass' kicked off as TA's:)

Take care then<3

P.S. To "---". Try being in college when grades ACTUALLY matter and determine your FUTURE, then tell people that they're not acting "mature" over a situation like this. Get a life.

Viv said...

aww tao, i'm so sorry to hear what happen. if there is no way for you to correct this, maybe talk to your prof and see if you can get some extra credit?

iamgrape1119 said...

To Ilovewendydarling: Thanks hun! I have a little request! May I be invited to your blog? It shows that it's only open to invited viewer! Pretty please? :D <3

No problem! I love your blog by the way and you're amazingly gorgeous<3

Just send me your blogger e-mail address to: ilovewendydarling@gmail.com
and I'll add you in a heart beat.

Machiavelie said...

That is absolutely ridiculous - and considering the amount of viewers/ readers/ subscribers and lurkers you have, I'd say that's a better testament to your success in the real world than some dumb ass rubric grade break-down. Clearly you have what it takes to be successful in business, even based on Adsense alone, than any of those TAs!

Doriosity said...

to that very "mature" --- person (who probably deleted her name so Tao's friends won't hack her IP and destroy and combust her computer) uhh hello?? so you expect people to just freaking release their pent up frustration with what? friends are only going to listen to your story for 5 minutes before they zone out. Screw the TAs what can they say to you if they do find out... "you're a cyber bully...mommmyyy she talked bad about me online waaahhh" I highly doubt it and if they do then they're not very
"mature" are they.
Hello this is her blog and her rant I thought The US had this thing called FREEDOM OF SPEECH lol


To the wonderful TAO:
I'm not in Grad school college or whatever but generally people who mark things for teachers are just brown nosers who are too busy licking a teacher's shoes clean
plus if YouTube helps so much with business, you're already a successful business woman lol
think about the huugeass amount of subscribers you have on your blog and YouTube :)
They're probably just jealous of your fantastic makeup skills and prettyness. Even with makeup they'd still look god awful and make their mommys want to cry in regret.

tpain said...

i honestly don't think you're being immature or bratty at all! i LOVED the yt vid you made for that project, it's unfortch they couldn't open the other files! it sucks that they're being so harsh n you - the deserve every mean thing you said about them, it's stupid that they didn't ask you to re-submit it!

SexxyStarr said...

aww Tao, I'm sorry. You deserved a better score. You worked too hard to get a 21. I dont think you're being immature either, a blog is where your supposed to release your feelings and thats exactly what you did. In the end, I hope everything turns out ok.

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

Im sorry to hear about this Toa! they are so lame for grading you like that!! ive had that massive disappointment feeling before... dont worry you can rock your other grades cost you're a smart girl!!

Nanzy said...

Ohhhh Tao! *hugs* Could you just ignore those stupid TAs and maybe try to explain to your teacher/lecturer? Just an idea...

but I knew how frustrating it is to experience such thing, knowing how much effort you've put to make those vids (yes, including voice over).

Don't get too depressed tho, if I can make you feel better, it's just one stupid class.

Be positive & happy =)

Hey Tao,

I'm sorry to hear you that you've encountered such a TA! Hopefully you will go directly to the professor, because that's one of the best ways to override an incompetent TA.

In any case, to ---, there are a couple of things you ought to understand:
1 - perhaps you are not familiar with how significant grades are in college. However, for someone like Tao (applying for grad. school, every little thing counts!)
2 - Tao, expressing her frustration and anger in her personal blog does not deem her as an immature being. She clearly stated that she has contacted the TA to rectify the situation. Thus, it is reasonable for her to vent in a way that she finds comforting.

Anywho, good luck, Tao!

Mary said...

Hi Tao,

I completely understand how you feel, having gone through something similar myself last year. They try to patronize you and make you feel low. But don't let them do that to you, you know you're better than that. Good luck with settling things, I hope you get it all resolved for the good!
Take care :)

P.S There is definitely nothing wrong with bitching all you like and how you like on your own personal blog, it is rather therapeutic.

fuzkittie said...

Aw I'm so sorry!! :[ What a douche....

' * : . b | u 3 . : * ' said...

sorry to hear about that :/ It sucks that you put so much effort into it and they can't even be reasonable. Any way you can appeal it or complain to the department?

lala said...

OMGosh girl I totally understand, let it all out it's the best way...if that's not what a blog is for, then what IS it for??! Ignore the "holier than thou" attitude of some commenters here (I am pretty much your age, 17yr old mature person who is probably not that mature), they'd love us to think they were perfect and never said a bad word about anybody, but deep down we are all a bitch waiting to get out.
Hope you're feeling better and there is ALWAYS a way of making things right, whether you get full marks on your next assignment or your professors let you do something for extra.

♡ Nic Nic ♡ said...

Toa!! I have a trick... i blotted the pink poodle lipgloss :) then it doesnt look to OTT or barbie-looking lol!

angie519 said...

You have a right to vent and bitch. Of course you should be mad! I'm sorry.. have you tried maybe talking to the TAs face to face? Or even the professor? You could always take it to the Business school and talk to somewhere there. I had a friend who would do that.. I hope you get the grade you deserve! Be relentless! Fight for your grade!

I hated most TAs in high school, especially in business classes!! =(

Hahha yeah, I spent a lot of my stuff. I'm glad you know that you do have 10x more makeup than me! =P

Aww I'm glad it seems that way. I'll probably be posting something that'll show you just how bad many scars I have.

Hahha my mama got me started on Dior when I was a teenager! Blame her!

itsliz89 said...

Hey, I'd be pissed too!

... I started college when I was 17...

Pixie said...

Hey girl.

I'm sorry to hear that. I TAed for 3 years, and them not contacting you if they were not able to open your attachement is completely unacceptable. I suggest you contact the professor about it.

A lot of people are not cut to TA because what they really want is doing their research. I've seen it a million times. However, TAing is THEIR JOB and it has to be done responsibly.

Good luck to you. *hugs*

Hey Tao. Sorry this happened to you. Try to actually meet with your TA instead of just emailing them. And also be persistent. If that doesn't work then talk with the professor face to face. I'm sure he can help you. I believe that when they see you were genuine and actually did the work he will cut you a break. Goodluck.

MiuMiu said...

i'm sorry to hear what happened! you should complain about them as much as possible, i would bug the shit out of the department. look on the bright side tho, my uni TAs just finished their 3 month strike after the gov't stepped in to force them back to work. the students don't get refunds for tuition or parking. they seem to threaten to go on strike every year tho. thank god i finished last year XD
cheer up!

Jannie said...

i totally understand your reaction to how the TAs graded your project. it was totally unfair how they would give you such low points for a video well done.

i enjoy watching your videos on YT, btw. i really admire how honest and opinionated you are. your makeup videos are very fun to watch too. especially the reviews.

i hope you get the grade you deserve for your project. maybe they can give you another chance or something. they should.

Cheryl Anne said...

That sucks. Sorry for your terrible situation. They were totally in the wrong. I'm glad I'm done with TAs!

Keep on venting, then show them what you're really made of and bounce back fierce.

Good luck!

Shely said...

Wow that really sucks! Whenever my professors or anyone had problems opening my files, they would alert me right away because situations like that always occur...

That's just really unfair :/

You should probably consider reporting the TA's or something of that sort because it was really unprofessional of them to not alert you. :X

Emilita said...

That sucks. But I hope you can take some solace in the fact that lots of *real* people enjoy your blog and multimedia, and your skills obviously span beyond the narrow confines of this class assignment. Even though the TA screwed you over, you still have appreciative readers and a product you're (hopefully) very proud of. Those are things the TA can't take away from you. And five years from now the class probably won't matter!

I hope you were able to speak to the professor and get something worked out, because the situation sounds really lame.

I'm sorry this happened.. seriously, sometimes TAs can be real b*tches. I agree with everyone, maybe asking the professor about it? Sometimes the TAs just do this because they think that's what the professor wants.
