The time for reading for “fun” has once again come to a close. I think that until I quit school (either work-school or school-school) I will continue to have this gaping void in my life that only reading-for-fun can fill.
I’m currently reading a 40+ page excerpt from Hegel on Tragedy. And it is terrible stuff, as are the other four excerpts I have to read before the next class meets. The “best” part about it is that we probably won’t ever touch on it, in class or on any test. Probably I will never know anything more about Hegel on tragedy (or the other four) other than what I have to read. But I must do it.
Just in case.
Times 15 weeks. Times four years. Equals Master’s degree.
Can I just say, for the record, that I wish I could tell some instructors (at both work-school and school-school) how truly ridiculous I find most of their requirements? Can I just say that?
I have nothing actually interesting to share with you today. Just that Hegel’s terribleness is hard to top. But having it foisted upon you by a weird professor tops it. Avoid this situation at all costs. Actually, just avoid classes on Shakespeare in general. 97% of my problems in higher education would be solved by following this advice… I’m telling you what no one told me. Avoid Shakespeare classes. Like the plague.
