Tree Cum
Tree cum. This is an affectionate name an accquaintance of mine came up with. It refers to the massive amounts of pollen the trees are producing right now. This is the first year I've ever had allergies and I feel like someone has poured sand in my eyes and given my nose an enema. It's absolutely horrendous and I feel bad for those of you who have to deal with this year after year. I guess the only reason my allergies are existant this year is because the pollen count is at 800, compared to last year where it was at 100.
 
I haven't been on lately because school has been kicking my ass. It's horrible. I'm almost wishing I had been gaming nonstop because it would be an excuse for my poor grades. Instead the only cop-out I have is
 
"Well, neither of my instructors speak English very well and I haven't been in a math class in 5 years..."
 
Not a great reason, but I don't know what else to think. I have an A in my Physics lab but an F in the lecture. I obviously understand the material and the application of the formulas and theorems, I just don't understand what the professor in that class wants from me. He's Polish, very angry, and has an odd way of wording things. In Calculus I have two girls from China who have lived in America for a few years and are students themselves. They barely speak English and don't understand what we're saying to them half the time. Plus it took me about a week to figure out that one of them was saying variable when they were pronouncing it "vuh-rye-uh-bluh". It's a terrible mess and I'm paying thousands of dollars to be put in the steaming center of it.
 
Have any of you ever had communication problems like this at school or in the workplace?

you know... i'm more of a fall allergy person... but out here in missouri i have strangely not had man occurrences of my allergies flaring up... and i'm from a concrete jungle called southern california... then again i've only been through 2 falls.. so it may be worse in years to come...


as far as the whole school thing goes... i had a problem with paying tens of thousands of dollars to get an education that would get me a minimum wage job out of college for the first 20 yrs or so... so i dropped out and paid 500 bucks to become an EMT and make minimum wage ... lol... seemed like a better idea... but now i'm thinking about going back to school to do IT... **shrug**... could be cool... it's either that or paramedic school... still haven't made up my mind...

as far as language goes... i worked in an area of south los angeles where the majority of the population was either non english speaking or english as a second language... so i feel your pain...

I don't know what's going on this year. I'm sure there's some explanation besides "Oh, the pollen count is higher."

Well, the world is kinda pissed at us right now. So many natural disasters. I think the trees are just trying to do their part in eradicating the human species.

Our tree drops sap towards the end of summer. And it doesn't just wash off. You have to take a claybar to your paint and scrape it off the windows. The thing is I don't really notice it on my paint because it pretty much mists it and my paint is metallic. I thought the flecks of sap were flecks of metallic paint. :(

I can't really hear for shit it seems like..so when somebody tells me something instead of saying what, just take your best guess at what you think you heard, usually doesn't make sense but it's pretty much funny..I avoid foreign people, because I can't understand them either..

That's pretty weird my friends mom is from Germany..I can't even like pretend to talk to her, cuz i'd make myself act like a fool...where is your mom from?

She's from the Netherlands. So she's Dutch. The accent is relatively close to German, just a little thicker. It's normally not too bad, only when she's been talking to our other Dutch family or when I say something in Dutch to her. Then she just gets confused for awhile and mixes the languages up.

If it were pollen I'd call it dandruff. Gets everywhere and is pretty damn visible.

As for comm. problems, worst was that Biotech lecturer. We've got a German Bio lab instructor, but he reminds me of an exuberant Hans Gruber, so it's all good.

Ok. What does prac stand for? Is that like lecture for Aussies?!

Just shorthand for practical/lab. Trying to think of Aussie slang for lectures.

Maybe it's a british term, its basically an alergy to dust and pollen. :]

I googled it! I've heard it used before, but mostly by older people. I just never knew exactly what it meant.

I and other students have. A lot of the professors are at the school on grants. They don't want to teach but they need the money for research that the school provides. In return for the research grants the school makes them teach for a semester every year. The other semester they're free to do research. The school makes a lot of money from the discoveries that the professors make.

Basically what I'm getting at is the dean says "Too bad. Deal with it."
