    Angry I"ve Had It!

    This year my high school thought it would be cool to rip off all the seniors. It was an ugly seen. Eight elective classes had been cut. Eight. All of which included parenting, food, computer technologies, wood, core french, business, Second semester auto, and creative writing. I just so happened to be one of the lucky ones, and only ended up being stuffed into native studies. Which makes no sense at all, why cut stuff like parenting and food, but keep native studies? But anyway, I had signed up for media arts, because I love photography, and stuff like that. So I walked into first period, pumped for media, only to find out I was stuck with a very foul lady. She has no emotions, and she looks at you like she's going to chop you up with an axe and hide you in the walls, which makes me feel terrible. She gave us a list of curriculum work we had to do, right, and each project would equal a certain amount of points if you handed it in, well we had to reach fifty points. The first one I went with was to draw a caricature of yourself. So I spent a couple periods and nights after work, working on it. I had it all outlined in black pen and nicely colored in, and handed it into her when I was finished with it. Well then she proceeds to tell me that I shouldn't have colored it in. Well why not?? How was I supposed to know not to color it in? She never physically said "Do not color it in" nor did her magical little paper say so. So what? I'm sorry I'm not telepathic! After that, we were supposed posterize a natural self portrait, but if we used the computer we would get 50%. Does that make sense to anybody? This is a media class, she wanted us to paint it! I don't paint, if I wanted to paint I would have signed up for visual arts! I'm probably too late to change out, but I'm going to see what I can do, because I can not spend one more day in that class.

    I hate that. A teacher really makes a class and if they are bad no matter what the subject is it's pretty much ruined.

    That is kind of why I love being in university. Every thing is pretty much spelled out on paper so there is no confusion, the word limit, what is expected etc. If you're just learning about all this stuff she should be very clear about what is required by you.

    I hope you can transfer out. If you can't, note what she says and ask heaps of questions about the assessment. Or send her an email with the questions, so when you get the answers you have proof of what she said, in case she changes her mind later on.

    Its tough they have changed your electives. I was lucky enough not to have that happen in high school, but my university has just changed to a trimester system which has messed about everything leaving me with having to do pretty lame subjects for my last semester.
