Fucking fuck! How could I be so naive?
I just started my masters in Enterprise Software Development. It's basically the continuation of the CS BSc I finished this year. I don't consider myself a lazy and bad dev and I finished in the top 5-10% of the class - I say this not because I want to brag, I know I'm not the best, I know I have my defects, BUT I don't think that it's a good sign that all of us, my top graduate friends all full of hate and anger against this whole MSc after just a week. And... It's mostly one fucking egoistic teacher's fault.
Okay, all of us are working full time which is obviously tiring if you combine it with the university classes. But I still think I could manage this first week better, if I wouldn't fucking came to the same line of the faculty.
I deeply fucking hate that I've been naively thinking that the masters will be different after experiencing one of the worst teachers last year. It's fucking first week, and I can't change the specialization anymore, only give up. I wanted to fill up the void with some usefulness, but I just fucking messed it up.

This "beloved" teacher is from the industry, he has a lot of experience and started to teach recently. Which is not a problem, no! It should be a great thing by default. But the way he holds his courses is inaccaptable. I don't think I have the right to share everything, but the following stuff just grinds my gears... Like a fucking lot:

1) He brags about a lot of stuff. Like he made really good deals in the past. Why should we know, that he made a contract with a client for 20 million euros. Okay. Whatever. That doesn't help us, and I think that bragging makes him look like an egoistic scum.

2) I hate this one the most: he fucking says that we have a choice in the administrative stuff. He gives us some hope and offers the possibility to argument and come up with our own solutions for grading and etc. But oh boy, is this a false hope, a fake idea of free will. He already knows what the final solution will be and on what kind of decisions will we all "agree". He did this last year, he does it again. Fucking naiveness of mine...

3) Lastly, he decided, that we have to go to theatre with him, all of us. No exception. And I like the theatre. But only when it isn't forced. Why and how could you pair this up with the grade you give to your students? Because that's what he does.

FML. How can I already hate this? How can I already be fed up with all the stuff? Anyways, I'm signing the contract with the university tomorrow, so let the fun games begin... I know, I look like a whining little boy now, but I just fucking had to went it after this deep fried shit-day. I probably have to get some sleep, and everything's gonna be fine. Eventually, skipping classes might become necessary in order to bear all this shit.

    Dont you guys have anonymous professor evaluation polls/questionaires at the end of the class subject? (Which isnt done by the prof., but by the college/uni)

    If you have them, and everyone tanks him, hopefully they will get rid of him.

    @Quirinus yes, we have anonymus questionairies, but only a few of us fill it out, even though we usually try to convince the others. I really hope that this time it will be different though.

    @Lasoloz i guess that depends on how the q's are done and how they conduct this.

    We have like 20 questions to rate things 1-5, and then a few broad questions where you can write your general thougts (most skip this).

    They hand these to everyone. I mean, you dont have to fill them, but if you hand them to a person, 99% of people will fill them since rating 1-5 is quick and easy. And theyre handed in at the beginning of one of the last lecures. Prof is required to wait outside and the person handing them in collects them.

    No idea how they do it where you are, but here it's pretty good. And i've seen some profs being moved to some less important subjects or moved out of lecturing for a while.

    @Quirinus Then you are lucky, I guess. We have these questionairies online on the very shitty platform of the university. I'm not sure if all the teachers read our criticism, some might do. Also the other teachers probably don't have the right to read the review, so we probably can't stop the bullshittery this way.

    Well, at least your friends know it a lot sooner. It took me whole semester to realize it.
