Guys I am so grateful to the Sacred Abs of the Cosmic Christ to have almost made it through this first quarter because I confess that it’s been hard to keep up the morale through bourgeoisie friends and hands-off pedagogy and other strange & surprising things
Today was the last day of Foundations class so there is light at the end of the tunnel
I still feel trolled by Foundations because it was a very ineffective and haphazard design of a learning environment
But maybe it is not as strange as I think it is, to be in a class that does not apply the theory/principles of its own curriculum and instead seems to value them primarily as a medium for intellectual exercise / demonstration of intellect?!
But the PhD students have told us that it gets better after the first quarter, so maybe these have been 12 weeks of academic hazing
Today was also “The Graduate School Holiday Party” which took place in a big hotel ballroom
I didn’t know whom to talk to there, so I just went to redeem one of the two “LIQUOR” tickets that I was given
The bartender was really nice when I said, “Hi, I don’t know anything about drinks, but what is a good thing to drink?”
"Oh, that’s hard, if you don’t drink, I guess there’s wine, or if you want something sweet, how about a rum sour?"
Then I stood in a corner and drank it like a juice box and now my face is really warm and I can feel my heart in my chest
Positive vibes to all of you as we finish up this quarter/semester of school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
