I had to keep myself from laughing when I looked at the syllabus!

I came to class late (a tray fell on my head in the bathroom while I was brushing my teeth - it’s a long story). Anyway, I came to class late and she was lecturing on the chemicals currently used in farming and how this news slips under the radar unless you’re actively aware… I don’t know. It had something to do with the nature of “Change.” I missed the starting point of that tangent. 

For five minutes I sat there thinking I’d wandered into the wrong class. I was literally sweating. I couldn’t walk out without her noticing at that point, so I just tried to accept the fact I missed my first class of the semester to listen to her talk about organic food for 80 minutes.

My Mythology class is a 300-level Intensive Writing course that includes such assignments as:

  • Examine the role of New Self vs. Real Self in the Beauty and the Beast plot summary on Disney Wiki
  • Analyze Bell Hook’s essay “Language: Teaching New Worlds/New Words”
  • Answer the question, ‘How are we not ourselves?’ as it pertains to this episode of Mushi-Shi (on Hulu)
  • Read Margo Jefferson’s book on Michael Jackson
  • A multimedia project that accompanies your original myth
  • Write a reaction to the film M. Butterfly.

If it weren’t for the minefield of ways to fail, I’d say this course was made for me.

The legacy of this pretentious asshole I knew in high school has reverberated throughout the Writing Department of my college. The fact I’ve only had 1 class with him in 4 years doesn’t matter. His name pops up every time a professor has an exasperated anecdote. 

PUBLISHING: “You can be as creative as you want with the cover but don’t make it obscene. What do I mean by obscene? Last semester I had a boy who insisted he put a penis on the cover of his poetry journal. He said, ‘It’s an artistic choice!’ I said, ‘No, D.J. that’s pornography. Don’t turn it in.’”

THESIS: “You have to justify and analyze why you chose your subject. If you write about a high school carrying on during a zombie outbreak you need to explain the significance of that… Something deeper than, ‘That’s what D.J. wanted to write about.’ “

JOURNALISM: “You need to be clear and to the point. I’ve had some students complain that this hinders their creative, uh, mojo - “

EVERYONE: “D.J.

I can’t think of her rules in terms of reasonable or unreasonable because my opinion has no bearing on them, ya know? She hasn’t changed her rules in ten years. All I need to do is follow them. And she’s right about one thing: I’ll need to work at that level if I get a job at a magazine, or wherever. 

It just feels like there’s a lot at stake on every little thing.
