Thursday Rant

Okay so what is the deal with the education community giving out honorary doctorate degrees? What is that really teaching society? Here be a drop out and become a socialite and rich and you don’t have to earn a damn thing.

I get that school need money, but High schools and junior high need money. Not colleges. There are a ton of them and they are becoming more about money and less about the quality of their education. Do you know that there was a teacher at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville that told a student they shouldn’t be allowed in college because they were in a wheelchair? HELLO!! But there was nothing the student could do but file a complaint and be ridiculed by the teacher in class. He had tenure.

This is just one example, I’m sure there’s a lot. On a personal note my girlfriend had THREEE classes left before she got her bachelor’s degree from the same school and a teacher told her that she wouldn’t be able to do the work. She quit because she believed the woman. Man if I ever met her in a dark alley! This has continued to affect her.

So the moral of this message is get back to the basics! Give people a fighting chance and quit giving out honorary doctorates to people to get money for you damned school. LAME!

Karma- What a bitch!

I feel like a piece of metal from a passing by plane is going to come down and strike me hard in the head for writing that statement.

Here’s my experience with Karma: it sucks. It’s not that I even o bad things. Just little white lies that she makes into a huge hot mess. It’s frustrating beyond belief.

Here are examples (most recently): I wanted to attend this conference for a consultant group I am a part of. I was planning on paying for said conference at the end of the month. BUT no they decided to pick a venue too small and therefore they had to cap their registration. How awful! So that screwed everything from the get go. But add in the fact that I decided to pick up Medifast, which is a weight management/lifestyle change program at the same time really screwed me. They charged me THREE times!!! This put my account in the red and therefore causing me not able to attend said conference.

Why? Because I didn’t tell anyone I had decided to take the plunge financially and join Medifast. So Karma decided because I didn’t tell my significant other (to prevent yet another folly about money). But I know I should have said something….I hate confrontation.

Me and Karma hate each other.

Well I’m done. She wins.

In other news. I am finished with my novel and I am reading it through the third time and fixing errors, gaps and such and then I’m sending it out.

I didn’t finish the A to Z challenge. Y and Z don’t really offer good movies. So any directors out there here are two letters that are under used. Just sayin’.

My last and final semester of my Bachelors of Creative Writing started. It’s on Popular fiction so we are reading books like the hunger games, the da Vinci code, the road, and one other that I can’t recall right now.
