Round and Round We Go

round and round we go.

i’m drop­ping my Fictions of Insanity class. but if i drop it i’ll be two cred­its short for grad­u­a­tiong. so i’m pick­ing up a 2cred Sociology class that starts in april. in or­der to do this i had to call the in­sti­tute for lati­no stud­ies who had an open spot crosslist­ed with this class. in or­der to do this i sent her an email and am cur­rent­ly wait­ing for her re­ply. on­ce i get it i may go to her of­fice and get the nec­es­sary doc­u­ments to get in­to the class. then i must go to the eng­lish de­part­ment and get the nec­es­sary doc­u­ments to drop the in­san­i­ty class. fol­low­ing this, i must go to the un­der­grad­u­ate dean’s of­fice to make ab­solute­ly sure every­thing will work out cred­it­wise and that i will grad­u­ate in two months. then it is off to the reg­is­trar to drop the 3cred eng­lish and pick up the 2cred so­ci­ol­o­gy class.

all of this ef­fort to avoid tak­ing the in­san­i­ty midterm to­day. the study guide starts out with “Know the ti­tle, au­thor, date pub­lished and ma­jor themes of all the text {sic} we have read thus far” and gets worse from there. how dry and un­in­ter­est­ing not to men­tion the clos­est ap­pari­tion i can think of to knowl­edge be­ing use­less.

round and round we go.
