So over the last month or so I've been watching [personal profile] mmefrankenstein play persona 4, and it's making me remember why I found that game so problematic, and why I hate Yosuke so much.

So I feel sort of awful today.

I didn't go in to campus this morning, mostly because I'm exhausted and I only have one class on Tuesday, and it takes and hour to get there and an hour to get back. Of course, that class is the one where the professor will drop your grade by a letter if you have more than five 'unexcused' absences, as in, without a doctor's note or a death in the family, becasue clearly we are all ten years old and utterly irresponsible and unable to determine whether or not we are well enough to go to class. I understand this in high school, but once you get to college I think you realize that if you don't go to class, you don't do as well. Or, with me and Logic last semester, you realize you don't need to go to lecture, since you can just teach yourself from the book. I got an A+ in that class, and didn't go to half of them.

I'm sort of...bummed out. And burnt out. I have a feeling that I'm not going to do as well this semester as I have been doing, and that really irritates me, since I wake up early and drive a fucking hour to get to class, and then spend literally hours a day studying when I get home. I mean, what more can I do?

All of these feelings (which are usually swirling around my head, though on the back burner) have been exaserbated tody by a play that I have been assigned to read for Ancient History.
Yes, I realize it was written thousands of years ago and people were very different then than they were now, but having to read pages and pages of this little shithead rail on and on about how evil women are, and how they are the source of all the pain in the world, and that it would be better if they would be like the dumb animals and just shut up. And all this just stems from the fact that someone mentioned to him that a married woman is in love with him.
And then there are the other themes in the play, such that all sexual desire is evil, the only real love is platonic love, Aphrodite is an evil bitch yada yada yada. And that the Ancient Greeks would see this guy as the Tragic Hero, because look at him, all the pain he goes through, he has to deal with all these women.
And I know, I know why this was assigned. It gives a really good look at the Greek's culture, and it's valuable from a historical perspective, but it just makes me so...tired. And enraged. And tired of being enraged. And makes me wish I hadn't taken this course, and just gone on in blissful ignorance about how awesome classical times seemed. Makes me not want to take Renaissance History.

Bluh. Sorry for spamming. Just had to get it off my chest.

What follows is some feminist chatter that I composed in my head during my customary hour and ten minute drive to campus this morning. Just need to get some stuff off my chest.
