I’m currently grading papers and I literally have a headache from the high amounts of grammatical errors and horrible flow. Reading these papers is a form of intellectual torture. And, it makes me wonder if my writing was this bad at one point in my college career? I’m sorry, but using a referenced sentence after another referenced sentence does not generate a quality paper just because it sounds smart. Of course it sounds smart, you didn’t write it.
“The costs of the Bush-Obama wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now estimated to run as high as $4.4 trillion – a major victory for Osama bin Laden, whose announced goal was to bankrupt America by drawing it into a trap.”—Noam Chomsky - American Decline: Causes & Consequences (via weareimmortal)
To the creeper that anonymously messaged me asking me to message him on Yahoo Messenger…no. For one, who the hell even has a messenger program anymore? For two, if you’re user name includes the word papa, you’re probably about twenty years to old to be on tumblr.
I’m pretty sure my school has like one parking spot for every twenty students. I just spent a good half hour circling the parking deck looking for a spot. There is like a process here. You slowly drive along and stalk people walking off the steps, then slowly follow them to their cars. If you’re brave, you can even ask if they are leaving. I find myself cursing at people a lot more here than I ever did at LHU. I really hope I become a TA in the future so I can get one of those handy FS parking permits. There are always spots open in their section. Until then I will continue playing chicken in the parking lot, which via car is not safe.
After writing my third paper on Karl Marx and his theories, I’m hoping this is my last one for a while. Don’t get me wrong, Marx and I are boys but I need a little variety in my life.
However, it’s just amazing to me how everything he wrote about over a hundred and fifty years ago is so relevant to today, honestly, its kind of scary. For example, he mentioned free trade and exploitation, masked under religion and politics to make it acceptable or the centralization of production and their political centralization and power. Its like “What?!? Marx did you travel to the future and wanted to warn us? Or, were things bad then but just got progressively worse?” I just think these readings have been so relevant to the whole Occupy movement.
