It's funny how some people start out annoying me right up front and some take a few weeks to become annoying. There's an interesting dynamic when adults are in a classroom setting which reminds me so much of elementary school.
There's a person in my class who just has to comment on everything the instructor says. "at my company we do it this way." If it was somewhere interesting maybe I might care. And if she didn't need to pipe up every 2 seconds maybe it would be OK. grrr.
The group exercises are the worst. People get all riled up about how to do the exercise and want to argue about it. Dude, we're not getting a grade for this or any credits even. And seriously this stuff isn't rocket science. If you don't understand a simple exercise, how do you expect to lead an actual project with all its inherent ambiguities?
Ok, I'm done ranting now. I just hate taking classes where I'm not learning anything and I have to wait for the slow learners to catch on. I know that sounds very bitchy, but there you have it. My time is valuable and the stupid hoops that PMI is making me jump through to get their certification are grating on me.
I sort of miss Caltech and feeling like I need to work hard just to stay on top of things. I could almost feel my little brain cells working overtime.
