Basically the title speaks for itself. I’m taking an online government class this semester and since it’s an online class, its really hard to correspond with the professor and ask questions and get the help you need. What’s even worse is when you do email her, she just refers you to the syllabus(which you’ve read a million times and does not help AT ALL).
I am absolutely HORRIBLE at government and have been crying all day just thinking about the horribly complicated topics I need to write about this week and how nothing I do follows the “course competencies.”

Is there anyone taking the class or now or has taken it before that would be able to help you?

Vanilla, I’ve talked a lot with my parents about this, they’re both great at government, but I think at this point the real problem is me. Sure, my professor could me more helpful than she is, but I just have a really hard time comprehending this topic. I’ve never been good at government, political sciences, or economics. Everything I read or hear just goes through one ear and out the other.
Luckily this is just a one semester class so I won’t have to deal with it for too long. Although this class will probably take a lot out of me and will result in many late nights and tissues, I’ve got to pull through and try my best.
Life’s not fair and I can’t pretend that I’m the exception to the rule.

Ugh I’m so sorry. I had a professor like this. I cried many times during the semester too. (Outside of class!) 😛 Calm down so you can think clearly and logically (read: unemotionally) and try to pinpoint into a question exactly what you don’t understand. Then, do everything you can to find the answer. Don’t feel bad–politics/government is complicated. Do your best, and be nice to yourself.

I know exactly how you feel. I have had several classes like this. I have cried (and I am not a crier) over many class related problems over the past five quarters that I have attended CC. After the last outburst of tears God whispered to me that it was rather silly that I was crying when He has my future planned out perfectly and one difficult professor, class, or test is not going to mess up His will being played out in my life. Sometimes I just have to take a deep breath and let Gods love wash over me so I can feel his presence near me. He has also pointed out that I have not failed a class yet so crying is quite pointless. “But the wisdom from above is pure first of all; it is also peaceful, gentle, and friendly; it is full of compassion and produces a harvest of good deeds; it is free from prejudice and hypocrisy.” James 3:17
