Admiration of the clueless instructor
I can't help but admire the instructor in my Java class. The guy, a student himself, is obviously a beginner, yet sees no problem in passing on whatever knowledge he has. Most people are terrorfied to speak about subjects they're proficient in for five minutes, much less teach a class. Respect.
Having said that, could I please get a new instructor? Respect is no guarantee for a joyful learning experience.
