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.

Variable Values

Judging a celebrity goo's difficulty in advance will forever be one of my weaknesses. Would a good rule system be one in which every goo is worth points based on its actual proven solvability after it's over? Each goo could be worth something like 500 Go »

Cleveland Rocked

Any comments on the quiet death of "The Drew Carey Show"? I never cared for the show much, as it was obnoxious and depressing, but any show that lasted nine years and once dominated the ratings for several seasons and is still popular in syndication deser Go »

Just a thought: The South African version of Sesame Street is introducing a new muppet with the HIV virus. But in her case, shouldn't it be MIV? Go »
