why even bother

I have to agree with Dean (Supernatural) on one point. "Demons I get. People are crazy." I was looking at my media assignments and saw that there is a career term paper. So I pick TV writer, go to the library and get the books yadda, yadda, yadda. Then I realize the assignment isn't up on the web page yet so I email the teacher and ask for page length, thinking 'intro level class, term paper, no more than seven pages double spaced' yeah, no problem I can do that. He emails me back, stunned that I'm already working on a paper due at the end of Feb. (hello, Chemistry major and I suck at math). And he tells me the paper can be no more than THREE pages double spaced. Okay, fine, I understand it's an intro class and there are a lot of students but he shouldn't be calling it a bloody term paper if he doesn't want more than three pages. I mean, THREE. Double spaced. Somehow I think I'm going to be the only student in the class who is upset that I can't write more. *smirk* And he's so getting more than three pages because I'm writing and turning in a fan fiction piece with it.

Oh, and don't get me started on my math class. The math department is so short of money and staff that they have all their lectures online, all their homework online, all the quizzes online. You have to go to class to take the tests but the rest of the time is spent in the lab and you get to TEACH YOURSELF. Ahem, sorry. I didn't mean to shout. Okay, maybe I did. :) I happen to be completely illnumerate and this is NOT going to work. I'm going on the record now saying that. *sigh* I hope I can pass this class. What am I saying, I can't even get into the bloody system to get to the intro quiz.
