    Current mood: awake
    Current music:the fan... man i wish i had some new music...

    I hate humanities..
    Fact: it is impossible for an instructor to carry on a class without putting his spin on the discussion...

    I seriously understand why most of the liberal arts majors come out of the program brainwashed... now during the class discussion over A Good Man is Hard to Find and another short story about the proof of God that I can't seem to remember the name of... our teacher kept saying "I don't want to get into how i believe" but by the direction that he tried to lead the discussion in, his beliefs become quite obvious. and with as many moldeable minds that are in the class, i find it highly irresponsible that he would attempt to lead us to conclusions that are only in agreeance with his. ESPECIALLY when it comes to fundamental religious discussions, and to a lesser extent, socio-economic theorem...

    It's a very fine line to walk between moderation, and leading a class to preconcieved conclusions is not cool... definitely not cool

    I sense a lot of friction between myself and the instructor during these discussions, and i chalk it to having a bit more life experience (not much, but enough to make a difference) than the syllabus-suggested sophomores taking it with me. I see it as we are a bit more set in our beliefs, and our world vies. I back this up as it's the upper classmen who are taking this with me that tend to speak up against the instructors lead. and he seems to detest people who don't take the class during the suggested time.

    I know this could come back to bite me in the ass grade-wise, but i really don't care... as it would be impossible for him to deduct me as far as class participation goes, it shows i read the stories, and I write some rather kickass essay answers on his tests. I dare him to try and give me crap on my grades... i double dog dare him....
