Since it is impossible for all of you to be in my shoes, (either at the same time or individually) I feel the need to post about some recent events, situations and other sundry happenings that I think are interesting.
So you will notice that this post has nothing, in fact, to do with my actual shoes.
The first event was a classroom discussion in my Cultural Anthropology class. I like that class about as much as I like gummy worms. And I hate gummy worms.
We are currently discussing sexism, gender roles in a society, racism, discrimination etc. The following is a crude representation of what happened in that class and in my mind (notice the use of capital and lowercase letters) :
Teacher: "What is race?"
My Thoughts: My first thought "Well Race is 6 feet 2 inches of awesome." My second thought "Noun. A biped of the Caucasoid persuasion, possessing great aptitude in the field of making a fool of himself in public situations."
Teacher: "How can race effect our lives?"
MT: "Well it depends on how well you get to know me."
Teacher: "Is there more than one race?"
MT: "My Facebook search seems to indicate that yes, there are many, I have never met another, however."
Teacher: "What does it mean to be a racist?"
Me: "Well considering that a Marxist follows Marx and a Darwinist believes in Darwin, a Racist must be someone who believes in or follows Me. Right?"
As you can imagine this went on for a while in my mind. There is no one who really knows my name in that class. Therefore I am now letting you all know what its like in my shoes. On this same note, I don't pay a lot of attention in Anthropology.
Moving on to my English classes. In Ms. (Dr.) Simonton's class this was one of the take home assignments she gave us. No bull.
"Write a Faulknerian sentence at least 50 words long, using linking words, subordinate clauses, and parenthetical asides."
Now that may sound like gobs of fun to you, but I often leave that class feeling like an idiot. That's what homework feels like in my shoes.
I now have to go do homework. But thanks for stopping by the Colog, ya bunch of Racists! :)
Please leave a comment (i'm sorta in a competition)
