  3. Really struggling to get started on an assignment that's an insult to the intelligence of everybody involved. I'm back in high school and really don't want to be here. #

  8. Couldn't bear the thought of reading a textbook, so went AWOL today and just caught up on reading the Internet. Found some useful stuff for my next essays. Despite my bad attitude to #, I can't complain about being required to do more or less what I'd be doing anyway.

  14. Going AWOL today. Mental health day. Nearly end of term, and if anybody asks me to do something perfectly reasonable, but to do it "critically", I'm likely to go postal. #

  16. @tregeagle It's a potemkin # All the staff are casuals, all the course material was produced by people long gone, or dead, or worse - still tenuously employed. Don't look behind the "student experience" curtain, there's nothing there. #

  18. Re-read the essay I submitted last week, and it still makes sense. So pleased with it I might post a director's cut on my blog. Mind you, I always say that. #
