  1. Yep, there's course evaluations at the end of every semester here too. Ugh. I hate filling them out, even though my school takes them seriously (not every school does, though).
  2. I think it's supposed to be a satire... Satires are badly done when they mimic a mind set so well that you can't tell they're a satire, IMO.
  3. So does Jersey. It gives people jobs and prevents certain accidents that can happen with customers pumping, mainly involving static electricity. Probably not necessary, but it is nice. It may be nice and convenient for you Oregonians... until one of you gets stuck out-of-state. I've heard fellow students up here in WA complain because they brought their cars with them up here to school, and when they got to WA...they had no idea how to fill their cars with gas. Kind of a problem when they leave for other states where there are no attendants to fill them for you.
  4. You don't even need to wait for a health fair to get free condoms at my school. CHWS (Center for Health and Wellness Services) has baskets and jars of free condoms in the waiting room and in their bathrooms, just TONS of them.
  5. Thanks for posting the link, Rhia! I just watched this... I kept refering to it as 'scary movie' while IMing to friends... And it really was very scary. And I felt so sorry for that one girl, though. She said she didn't care that other people thought her crazy because it was her god's judgement that mattered to her, but right after she said that she looked so lonely... And when she approached that lady in the bowling alley? I couldn't believe that!
  6. The problem is that I can't tell what the reason is that they're misinterpretting it... Thus, I don't know whose critiques I should give most weight to...
  7. I was really happy with it... ...Then I read all the pages of critiques. ARGH. They all conflict with one another and so many didn't get it... And I have no idea which ones didn't get it because their minds couldn't allow for the possibility, or if they didn't get it just because it wasn't clear. ..And one of the people I was most worried about being angry over the poem? She got it and liked the poem. Go figure.
  8. Back! And it didn't go as bad as I were fearing. They all handled it quite maturely (except I have no clue about those who didn't speak up during class, and I haven't read all the responses yet). Some of them got the gist of what I was trying to say, others were a bit off base. Overall though, it was a bigger success than my last poem.
  9. Thanks! ...Only about two hours now until I find out their reactions... *nervous!*
  10. I'd try to get the girl you originally spoke with alone and tell her up front that you don't appreciate having what you thought was a private conversation blabbed about to everyone she knows. Maybe throw something in there about you expecting more from someone who's part of a group that supposedly prides themselves on their morality. That might guilt-trip her into being more aware of how she affects other people. And I'd say go ahead and tell them where to find this place. It's not that hard, and they might actually learn something. ...Doubtful, but possible.
  11. And you're also an Ex-C member, much more likely to get it and not get riled up by it.
  12. Gee, thanks. Well, some of the students in my class are very perceptive when it comes to the poems, including one of the ones that wrote one of the religous poems in the first round. Thanks! I happen to like that line too. It's a heck of a lot better than the poem I wrote for the first round of critiques. And I know I shouldn't worry about it...but I do. My mom's trained being a worry-wort into me.
  13. I'm not sure if we're allowed to post anything submitted to class online without the prof's permission, but since you all seem to want to see it...
  14. I have intro to writing poetry every Tues/Thurs afternoon, and it's a workshop class where we submit poems and the rest of the class critiques them. Well, we passed around our second round of poems last Thursday, to start critiquing tomorrow. I'm really worried about how the poem I submitted for this round will be recieved, though. When I wrote it, it came out as being very in-your-face anti-Chriatian, a lot more so than how my own personal opinions run. I still submitted it because it was the best poem I had written since we submitted the first round of poems, and I trust my classmates to be mature in handling it. ...So why the heck am I still so worried about it?! I bet none of the people who submitted religious-themed poems the first round ever worried about offending non-Christians in the class... And I have a good class... But yet I'm still worrying myself over it! ...Luckily I won't have to wait long. My poem ended up being second on the list, thus will be critiqued during class tomorrow for sure... But I still have knots in my stomach over it.
  15. I've told my parents and an aunt (we were talking about religion and stuff, and I was a bit surprised when I found out that she's agnostic too, and has views very similar to mine on religion), but I refuse to tell my grandparents. My grandma on my mom's side probably would understand, but I'm not sure because we never talk about religion. Besides, since we never talk about religion, there's no point in bringing it up! As for my grandparents on my dad's side... They're a lot more religious than the rest of us, and I think they'd worry needlessly over me if they found out. And they'd also probably (wrongfully) blame it on my mom. They already don't like my mom, thinking that she's the reason my dad rarely talks to them (actually, the times he DOES call them it's 'cause my mom practically ordered him to!), and that she's been a "corrupting influence" on him, when it couldn't be more the opposite. Also, they're having enough trouble with my grandma having Alzheimer's, so there's really no reason to tell them.
