Why I Dislike the Class, Not the Course

one of the most popular poetry topics in that class is death in one way or another.  it would take two hands to count the number of poems that related to either a loved one dying or suicidal tendencies.  i realize that writing is supposed to be cathartic and way to express your feelings, however deep and broken, but seriously, how do you expect people to correct your grammar/diction without looking like a complete ass? "yeah, that was great, but try not to rhyme two lines with the same words next time, ok?"

I don't know which is more difficult: My calculus class or this one. Material-wise, Calc. Peer-wise, this class wins hands-down. We've basically divided the room into our side and "that" side.
I realize that this kind of makes me into a B-class prick, but this is college, not high school; if I'm going to pay for a class, I'd better actually learn something and receive real critiques, not have my time wasted by people who take the class to ensure a fixed audience that has no choice but to listen to their bits of wisdom/brilliance.
At first I was pretty bitter, but then I found my masochistic streak and now I almost look forward to the class to see how much pretentiousness I can wade through before I have to ignore it.

TL;DR This class trains me to take the high road.


Also, I'm currently nursing a headcold and trying not to drown in homework. But you guys already know how sporadically I update, so no worries. And my bangs are starting to look not as stupid now since they're growing out.

Urrggh, I completely know how it feels. It's like in my Anthro class, it always seems that we never end up talking about the actual material in the course (unless the teacher intervenes) but people just begin to tell their own personal stories and opinions on something completely unrelated at some points. -.-
Such is life, I guess.

I can totally relate. This year my creative writing class, while still good, tends to rarely get to actually doing anything.

@Kenny: Such is life indeed. Some stories are actually fun to listen to, but then you get the people who think everything they do needs an announcement of some sorts. >.>

@pushingthehabit: Oh hey, this class is also creative writing! I took it in high school as well; the only change is that people went from minimal participation in discussions to monopolizing the whole thing. So you just keep writing to drown it all out.

@lil_shiro: You don't know how I laughed at this. SEXY TIME?? Burning people is not sexy time, and makes a very bad impression when library boy sits right beside you in that class as well. But man, did that brighten up my day. XD

@Seegth: I'm trying to be a better person. Trying. So very hard. However, I subtly tell the class to shut up through a poem. 3 people got it and they weren't even the people I was addressing.
