This is a completely ranting thread, I do not know if this is appropriate, but I just hate my expos 101 class so much!!! In my university, every freshman is required to take a writing course (if that person does not have the equivalent AP credit). What we do in that class is: we read totally unrelated articles, then we have to make completely irrelevant connections in a written essay). To be honest, this class has nothing to do with my career nor do I learn anything from it. The instructor grades our essays so harshly so that I am forced to spend a huge amount of time to polish my essay in order to get a... B. I do admit that college requires hard work, but instead of sitting in front of the computer for hours trying to find quotes in a article about some "idiot who dies in the wild because he wants to go camping" that can be twisted to fit into my essays of "BS", I could've been reading extra physics/math books I burrowed from the library or do extra physics problems/projects from my book.... Due to my procrastination (I have a good excuse: Thanksgiving), I have to complete my essay tomorrow (Sunday). Which means 5+ hours in front of the computer getting my brain bored (and tortured) out of my skull...I guess I can always throw in a couple physics problems in between breaks...but anyway... Well, I guess that's enough of a rant of me. Does anyone else have similar experience? or am I simply an ignorant freshman+horrible writer who blames his failure on others?
