Ack. Worldviews

>> January 31, 2008

Be prepared for a rather lengthy rant about Plato.

This morning is the morning I go to Worldviews class for three hours. At least this time it will be something worth listening to for the first half of class. The past few weeks have been really boring, especially for the first half of class. Mrs. Stewart was reading Plato's republic, and for about the first hour, none of us have our books because they are getting graded, so Mrs. Stewart just gave us the answers. It is really hard for me to listen to something that boring since I'm a visual/kinetic learner, so I just wouldn't try to concentrate because, what's the point, I can't write the answers down! For the next half of class, we had our books, so I listened to that part because I could write the answers. I told my dad about this, and he said I should try to listen, but I told him I couldn't, it was too boring and she was giving us the answers anyway. So he lectured me about how I should listen even though there's no point to... But if I can't gather the answers by listening (since I obviously don't know the questions themselves), why listen? Oh. Another thing about Plato is that while some of his ideas may be OK, others are just plain STUPID! I mean, having a parent not even know who their kid is... wow... sometimes I think Plato must have been insane. NOT TO MENTION, he was GAY... ew.

It's a good thing we're done with Plato's Republic, or else I might have an even longer rant next time. If you've even bothered reading to this point, you either like laughing at rants or you actually care what I think. Also, some of my readers (Chloe for example) might sympathize with me, knowing exactly how I feel. I just can't wait for this class to be over for the summer.

You need to tell your dad that you need a PDA to you can write notes and work physically even when you don't have a notebook to write in. Satisfies the kenetic learner inside.

Oh and tell him that Matt recommended it... not me. I'll deny it!
