I take back anything I ever said bad about Prof. Isabel Balsiero: that woman is going to heaven.

And, on a completely un-related note, looks like I do have my Hum requirement done after all...

I can't vouch for any theology, but I will say that Prof. Balseiro generally rules the world with an iron fist. Which is to say she rocks.

Also, the on-campus hum requirement can still suck it, even though it's years later and I actualy satisfied the motherfucker. So there.

Hey, "goes to heaven" is just a phrase for way cool.. maybe better reserved for people who don't have that dictator look. Balsiero was actually _sorry_ she'd made me worry about not graduating, after combining 2 units of Japanese conversation class and a unit of choir into a hum, so I'd meet the 10 hum class thingie.

On campus sucks if you don't do joint music though. That's probably a third of the really good hum courses at Mudd, with Davis gone.

I take it she took back the "stupid" comment?

Does that mean you're graduating?

Aw damn, and here I thought I could go without whining about clinic again in my LJ.

Prof. Thom is the clinic advisor who thinks that I am dumb and disrespectful. I think its mostly the disrespectful.. I really thought I'd done a better job of hiding that.

In any case, she told me today she wants to fail me, and gave me a nice long list of things I could do to get a D. The reason she thinks this isn't something nice and logical like my behaivour in clinic, oh no, its the fact that I turned in a COLLOQUIM form the week before that had "Yet another CMU Prof" as the name of the speaker. I'm not even in colloquim. If I have any more reasons why I can't graduate this semester, I'm dropping clinic and then doing just enough work on it to make sure my team isn't screwed.

rant rant rant fucking clinic rant rant rant.

But still, Balsiero is awesome. I had this heart-wrenching moment when I went into her office and saw how nice she was, and all of the cool books she had, thinking that I should just drop CS and go into Literature... but hindsight is 20/20...

Sorry, mixed up the professors. Comes from being on the other side of the country. Mmm... literature. Might be fun. Can always try those grad schools next year.
