Man oh man. School is back in session, and this semester I'm actually taking classes where I need to show up.
My writing teacher is pretty much the embodiment of everything that I find abhorrent in academia.
 
She's a) a woman b) gay c) indan d) mexican. How do I know this, you ask? She told the class.
Within the first 10 minutes of the first session.
And then she starts nattering on about how we're going to concentrate our learning this semester on underrepresented groups and how and what they bring to the table.
She proceeds to inform us that we a) need to buy a journal for the class and b) that our first assignment is a COLLAGE THAT DESCRIBES OURSELVES. And that we have to make 22 copies out of it so we can hold a round table discussion of everyone's collage. Said discussion will take 3 class sessions, she said. That's 6 hours, give or take.
For the uneducated amongst us, I'll review what, exactly, WRT101 is supposed to cover (quoting from my school's catalouge):

WRT101 Writing I
Principles and practices of writing. Includes writing college-level essays, review of basic writing skills, and written works. Also includes narrative/descriptive, expository, and persuasive writing.

I fail to see where a goddamn collage falls into this.
She also babbled on about how she loves the environment and pretty little animals and all that shit.

I have come to a decision. I am going to make it my goal to torment this woman this semester. But I'm going to do it with A caliber work. I think my opening shot across her retarded bow is going to be my epigraph on my collage.
