Anonymous wondered,
RE: Your shitty 'prof' - Write the dean a letter saying how unacceptable this is. Bonus points if you can get everyone in the class to sign it in agreement. I had a few friends in similar positions at different universities. One case ended with the professor fired (he was also sexist/racist/you-name-it-ist though) and the other ended in a full refund for the class for everyone in that class. Might be worth a shot?

I kinda jumped the gun with my post, she emailed me back later that evening… oops.

That said, she’s still an awful professor (cancelling our last 2 classes for her own personal reasons, she barely lectured as most of the class was student presentations, and she had a horrible habit of TEXTING during student presentations i’m not even kidding rn)

we did our course evaluations last week and she got a ~lovely~ one from me, and I know the rest of my friends in the class wrote similar complaints on theirs - those go to the Dean’s office so I hope some changes will be made to the course & to her “teaching” methods in the future!

ok so i’m in a class taught by a sessional prof

she cancelled our class today and is having the TA mark our final presentations next week since ~her brother is in town~ (which IMO is a completely unacceptable reason to miss our FINAL presentations, considering students are required to attend all classes except for medical reasons)

but whatever, i was dealing with that

until i emailed her with a question about the final project today and received an automated reply saying that she is on vacation until august 15???? but our projects are due on august 7?????

this woman is actually the worst fucking “professor” i have ever had, i’m furious that I paid like $700 & wasted my time for this bullshit experience

Anne (with an E!) Shirley (Anne of Green Gables)

I’m not a bit changed—not really. I’m only just pruned down and branched out. The real me—back here—is just the same. It won’t make a bit of difference where I go or how much I change outwardly; at heart I shall always be your little Anne, who will love you and Matthew and dear Green Gables more and better every day of her life.”

Ok so I’m a the bar and this shitty guitarist is playing

And I was like “I bet this guy is gonna play wonderwall”

And everyone made fun of me and said he knew better

NEXT FUCKEN SONG

WONDERWALL

I’m modelling for Alice and the Pirates at Otakuthon!!

SUPER PUMPED. I’m very surprised because I don’t feel like I suit their image particularly well, but I’ll do my best!! (ง •̀_•́)ง

Even if it means oblivion, friends, I’ll welcome it, because it won’t be nothing. We’ll be alive again in a thousand blades of grass, and a million leaves; we’ll be falling in the raindrops and blowing in the fresh breeze; we’ll be glittering in the dew under the stars and the moon out there in the physical world, which is our true home and always was.
