oh my god... I'm takin' this Women's Literature of Africa, Asia and South America course... and it's... rediculous. My professor is a first year teacher and she's indian, so all 6 novels for this course are about india or pakistan (I guess one was about sri lanka) and are all diaspora and just... the same thing over and over again.

I have to write a 10 page paper about this last book and come up with 8 discussion questions for class tomorrow, but... I'm starring at the blinking cursor in microsoft word. I haven't even opened the book, I'm sick of these books.

Anyone else get the type of work from school that when you sit down to do it, you just shut down?

Yes. Every class. I try to do it, but just don't want too.
I can honestly say I have really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like.


I don't always post on UG, but when I do, I post in the Pit. Stay thirsty my friends.

If they are the same thing over and over just give her a paper from one of the previous books and put a picture of an otter at the bottom of the last page just to make it that little bit different.

To a T. I'm'an English Studies major, specialty Women's Lit, Minor Women's studies. It's an awesome track, except when your teacher doesn't follow the broad curriculum and only chooses books pertaining to her heritage. When I signed on I was expecting the course description, "africa, asia and south america," not, "2000 pages of indian women being oppressed the same way everytime."

I shouldn't say that, it's not fair... one book was about a man named after a russian author, and the other about incestual twins... and the other about a women who empowers herself by killing a man...

but, yeah. Fact remains, this course is not what it was supposed to be.

BTW Hamurabi was more brutal than most metal bands.

PS, I don't appreciate your "anti-ibanez" league thing, my Ibanez strat is one of the best strats I've ever played...

I hear ya buddy.

I got two research papers comin up in the next two weeks that I really let get the jump on me.

They're kinda open ended though so I could potentially have fun with them.

They've been stalking me. Trying to make me feel uneasy. I'll get by though. I always do.

It's my personal experience, I haven't tried a good Ibanez yet.

you should check out what my ibanez is... cause it really is one of the NICEST strat style guitars I've played (rivaling 70's fenders) since I got the refret done... the sound kind'a turns me off these days, but I can fix that with new pups.

Ok, it has a boat neck, but it's THE BEST boat neck fender I've ever played. LOVE IT! I could slap a fender logo on the headstock, refinish it and no one would know the differance...
