Here's the part where I rant about something that pissed me off. Clear the room.

WHAT THE FUCK?! I AM SO FUCKING TIRED OF CREATIVE WRITING CLASSES THAT CONSIST PRIMARILY OF READING! DO THESE PROFESSORS NOT KNOW THAT WE ENGLISH MAJORS SPEND ABOUT 80% OF OUR TIME IN LITERATURE CLASSES ALREADY?! WE READ ONE FUCKING BOOK A WEEK, SOMETIMES MORE, IN LIT CLASSES! SO WHY DO WE HAVE TO READ SO GODDAMNED MUCH IN CREATIVE WRITING CLASS? IN MY NONFICTION WRITING CLASS, WE HAVE READ 1.5 BOOKS IN 1.5 WEEKS. IN MY FICTION WRITING CLASS, WE SPENT 5:30 TILL 7:50 TALKING ABOUT STORIES THAT WE READ FOR TODAY, AND 7:50 TILL 8:00 TALKING ABOUT OUR WRITING ASSIGNMENT. WHAT THE FUCK?! IF I WANTED MORE LIT CLASSES I'D TAKE MORE LIT CLASSES!! ARRGH!

Aaaah. I feel better now.

You should make a point to mention this in your evaluation of the teacher at the end of the semester. (That is if WIU does that).

And don't worry, it'll all be over soon...... that'll be an even bigger sigh of relief.

I promise this has nothing to do with McDonald's. This subject is almost too asinine for me to bring up, but I'm driven to frustration by Hillary Clinton and other politicians looking to score some quick brownie points off of boneheaded pandering to the public. Go »
