Group lab reports. Why....
I had 3 absolutely useless lab partners for a lab heavy class semester - what an experience
I do not tolerate that shit and let bad lab partners drown. I know there's an element of "working with people who are hard to work with" but if the person I'm working with isn't doing dick, itll be made clear as day come turn in time. They need to drop out and go work a shitty job for a few years, so they can come back with a genuine appreciation for the classes and stop messing with everyone else that cares. There have been times I've submit a lab report I've had to spend last minute rewritting entire sections for people, and then forward the original to the prof in an email letting them know so and so is dogshit worthless and request to never be grouped with them again.
"How'd we get a F on that report??"
Well... "WE" didnt.
>They need to drop out and go work a shitty job for a few years, so they can come back with a genuine appreciation for the classes and stop messing with everyone else that cares.
Jeeze Goober, you speak the truth. After working roofing for 8 years before returning to school, I relish every moment in class now knowing full well I never want to lay down a single roof in the rain ever again. Unfortunately a lot of these recent HS graduates don't have that experience and think lab reports are the "absolute worst". They're not fun for sure, but they beat the alternative.

Returning to MS after a couple years and now I *like* my homework? WTF?!?
Ik this feeling. Im hungry for work at the start of each week. Usually burnt by Friday about 7pm but hungry again come monday!
Aye, I second this. After working 4 years in the oilfield my body feels like it has aged 20. I find comfort in the fact that I will hopefully never have to trip out 20k ft of pipe again and if I’m trading that for a hard class I’ll take the hard class every time.
Only speaking from experience! I had to take that break and go work as well. Without it I wouldn't have ever had the motivation to finish college.
Lol - what makes you hate them?
2nd yr mechanical eng student here, just take a 5 min break to cry and then move on, you get better grades studying this way. I call it tears of joy. Or if you’re like me, then cry 5 minutes and then game 55 minutes. That’s your one hour break, now study 10 minutes and then cry again, and then game, repeat, etc. but this method usually ends up with like a 30% grade, so just a warning
Have fun when you have to take Heat Transfer
Idk why heat transfer seemed pretty tame to me.
I hated Mechanics.
Also, fuck control engineering
Controls was basically a Math Class with strict criterion for stability. I will do Controls ALL DAY LONG.
Writing lab reports for E&M and Transmission Lines tho... fuck that noise.
TL wasn’t easy but it was by far easier than anything to do with controls!
we have different names for subjects here so idk precisely what control engineering is, i do have a subject called measurement and control tho. We get pid controllers, transfer functions, ziegler nichols theorem etc
well that sucks, my final assignment is due in two weeks. It’s about some elevator lift control. I honestly have zero clue what to do tbh. It involves simulink
I liked control too tho
maybe you're just weird
I think you are onto something.
I thought it was super interesting. But goddammit what a tough class for me.
Fuck control. Thermo and mechanics any time of the day is fine. BUT. FUCK. CONTROL.
I enjoyed Thermaldynamics/Fluidmechanis, Mechanics was fun, but Regulation/Controlling haunts me.
Control is a bit intimidating but quite interesting
Somehow I found heat transfer to be the least bad of them all however thermo felt more like a death sentence honestly.
Thermo was fine imo. Fucking analytical mechanics is where i lose my mind
I loved my thermo classes, it was controls that really fucked me
please don't say that, I just got out of that lecture and this was \*not\* the first comment I wanted to read lol
3rd year ee, just tell yourself your a piece of shit who deserves to suffer. (This is not great for mental health but effective non the less)
4th year EE. I can confirm it does help. I hate my life but I chose this path so i give myself little 5 min breaks between studying to debate dropping out of school and living on my family farm
I see the time to cry increase exponentially, I am in aero and in my final year, up until last semester I was crying while I was studying cause my eyes won't stop sweating after the 5~10 mins break. So yeah basically I was crying throughout the semester
Damn, aero is prob one of the toughest engineering major. Regardless, i have nothing but respect for u for making it this far
Yeah I’m currently in my last semester of mechanical engineering. Heat transfer and system dynamics… I have no tears left to cry and all joy has been taken from my life
idk what system dynamics is but i passed heat transfer, it was for me an openbook exam and let me make myself clear: the book passed the exam, not me. If u remove the book, i’d just straight up fail ngl
You’ll get there. Just keep showing up and keep trying. Idk how school is with rona thank god (Graduated right before the pandemic) but you can do it. I just got into the mind frame that if I failed a class that it really wasn’t the end of the world. All I did was gather enough knowledge to make it do-able in the following semester. All in all I was lucky enough to not have to retake anything.
You’ve managed to describe my life perfectly as an EE. Apart from the tears most of the time Im dehydrated for not remembering to drink water.
2019 grad here, im very bored. I can see ways in which it would be fun but the combination of the pandemic and a job where i do engineering maybe 5% of the time has really got me down.
Materials engineering for a parts mfg. Basically all our materials are already developed and off the shelf, we just turn em into things. Ive used my skills mainly to improve minor things around the shop between very large amounts of twiddling my thumbs. I ask for stuff to do but everyone is far to busy to take the time to train me to take over some duties.
Yeeeeppp. I do spend a large amount of time learning new stuff. Free time doesn't get wasted.
I'm holding on to the fact that everyone says it's so much better after school. Gotta get it done somehow.
Is it bad that I know this feel
me everyday in structural design lab
Me rn, I’m taking my very last ECE class right now, digital signal processing, but I don’t think I can pass
Senior computer engineering student, I allow myself 1 day a semester to have a mental breakdown, feel sorry for myself, cry, contemplate my life choices, I don't touch work, I don't do shit but binge and give in to hedonism. Next day I'm back on that horse, it seems to be working since I made it to my final semester
I refuse to do any homework on Saturday. That’s my break
Me doing my dynamic systems homework
This is me doing Signals and Systems
Me rn as I am writing yet another G-d Damn Lab Report.
Take my silver haha... Aahh brilliant. And way too relatable XD
Me two weeks into engineering
Junior EE here. Felt this on every level.
Crying in engineer,
And i haven't even started my semester yet.
My current work load is
-multivariable and differential equations
-materials and statics
Plus a 10hr work period each week :O
I am going to be crippled by my anxiety this semester for sure..
Why is this me 😭
Teachers will hand you a fast food application since apparently that's all anyone can do lol
and then you have to go back to studying because no one cares T-T
Internalize this until you graduate and get a job. That’s what I did
This is me rn, and I'm only in precalc 2.....
*Chuckles* "I'm in danger!"
Me with computer science 🥲
compsci here too, I am straight up not having a good time
This guy needs help. We all feel like this at some point. That's when being pushed a little is key.
2 weeks? Must not be into your senior classes yet.
*2 weeks into my senior ME classes.
Junior year I’m guessing.
Senior ME lol. I graduate this spring so I just have to pass at this point. No matter what year it is, the professors always like to make us suffer.
Civil Engineering senior is not that hard in my school. It’s Senior design, Experimentation and and department electives. I choose the easier ones. If I’m gonna get C or B, I shouldn’t be stressing.
Senior year isn’t to bad. Junior spring is definitely the hardest.
My first day of classes on my last semester is tomorrow
I am already like gif above
It do be like that sometimes
This is me every couple of hours at work dealing with idiocies
i feel him
Lmao!!! Been there!… aww… those were the days … time for homie to hit the dorms and party the assignment away. It was the Dragon Ball Z charging up in the beginning that did it for me 😂🤣🤣🤣
