To The Professor Assigning 150 Minutes Of Movie-Watching Homework, Can We Put That On Pause?

What makes you think I can dedicate 2.5 hours to watching an educational movie for class?

To The Professor Assigning 150 Minutes Of Movie-Watching Homework, Can We Put That On Pause?

We are college students. Taking 12 credit hours or more. Involved with extracurriculars. Working jobs. Studying and doing homework for other classes. What makes you think I can dedicate 2.5 hours to watching an educational movie for class?

Here are 10 things I would much rather do.

1. Write an essay

Yep, give me a prompt and I'll write an essay because it would take me less time to do that than watch a movie.

2. Watch a specific scene from the movie

Odds are that the point of the two-hour movie can be wrapped up in one scene, so just show us that scene in class and say why it is important

3. Read a summary

Most likely, I will be on Wikipedia reading the plot summary anyway.

4. Watch the trailer

Or I will watch the trailer on YouTube to get the jest of the movie.

5. Text my classmates

See if they have watched it and can give me the rundown.

6. Watch the movie in class

Seems like an obvious choice if you're going to have us watch a movie.

7. Study

Yup, would rather take those two hours and dedicate it to studying for something worth many more points and worth the time.

8. Nothing

I would rather do nothing and not even have an assignment :)

9. Not even watch it

If it comes to it, I won't even watch it.

10. Drop the class

If that movie is worth a large amount of our grade, I just might have to drop the class because ain't nobody got time for that.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
