A New Week

So, firstly, let me apologize to the three of you that follow me. It’s been about a week since my last post. Tear. And secondly, I was supposed to teach you people how to read poetry the ‘right’ way. Honestly, I’m lazy and don’t feel like it. It’s not really my responsibility to teach you how to read.
Being a fan of poetry myself, nothing pains me more than being in a creative writing class. NOTHING is more painful. For the most part this is a required course for most majors…or not. Either way, my professor set it up as a ‘collaborative’ course and with this comes the review of others’ ‘poetry’. This is the worst part of my day.
What is the point of reading sub-quality poetry, submitted by students who don’t care? Not only is the practice of reading this crap, eye ball popping horrid, it’s a waste of my time and money. If I wanted to spend $1500 on torturing myself I would’ve cashed in $15 for Kill Bill and called it a day. But no. I sit in a chair for over an hour and listen to rhyming words about boyfriends, makeup, and an influx of grammatical errors. See the correlation between this class and Facebook? I do.
Next topic… What’s up with the History and Discovery Channels?
Not once this past weekend was I able to watch something history or science related. By tuning into one of the aforementioned channels, I’d be watching men chop down trees, hicks wrestle ‘gators’, or a soap opera about building motorcycles. Someone, please explain to me the societal or educational purpose of these ‘crap-u-mentaries’. Anyone, please…I need to know. I wish they would bring back history and discovery back to their respected stations.
I’m done ranting.
Ok, people. It’s that time again, PLEASE FOLLOW ME! Also, comments are welcome. If there’s a topic or something related you would like me to write about just let me know. I like getting feedback.
Suggested Reading:
Cinderella, by the Brothers Grimm. Seriously, read it.

Off to class…hit up my blog!
Be well.


  1. Joe,

    I'd actually be interested in reading some of your poetry sometime. Do you plan on posting any of it here?

  2. Patryk feels the same way about The History Channel. I felt like I was listening to my boyfriend rant, haha xD
