Homework

"Homework! Oh, homework!
I hate you! You stink!
I wish I could wash you
away in the sink.
If only a bomb
would explode you to bits.

Homework! Oh, homework!
You're giving me fits.
I'd rather take baths
with a man-eating shark,
or wrestle a lion
alone in the dark,
eat spinach and liver,
pet ten porcupines,
than tackle the homework
my teacher assigns.

Homework! Oh, homework!
You're last on my list.
I simply can't see
why you even exist.
If you just disappeared
it would tickle me pink.
Homework! Oh, homework!
I hate you! You stink!"
-Shel Silverstein

For the record, I am tired of being put into learning teams with a bunch of flakes. A group assignment should be a collaborative effort, not something completed by one person (namely, ME) with three other people's names on it. Also, it would be nice if the group assignment was relevant to the class....no more of this "create a company and design a website" for a Communications class. I'm pretty sure if I wanted to go into graphic web design, I wouldn't be taking classes towards a Bachelor's in Management.

While they are too young to read this, I want to apologize to AK and Roo...they have definitely been given the short end of the stick the past two weeks, as I have had to juggle a few big assignments with extra shifts at work. I am sorry for being short-tempered and for parenting-by-movies, especially the past few days. Once this class is over, I should have only 6 more to go...hang in there girls, mama's almost done with school [FINALLY].

Oh...and on any give day, the word "homework" in the poem above could easily be replaced with dishes, laundry, lame-o computers, bills, and weeds...just to name a few. :0)

  2. I love that poem by Shel Silverstein. Actually, I like most of his poems, but that has always been one of my all time favs. I'm sorry that you keep getting stuck with flakes...just keep the end result in sight. 6 more classes...that's FANTASTIC!!! We are rooting for you all the way.

  4. Sound like you have a case of the UOP blues..Is that where you go since your hubby works there?

    I graduated from there with that same degree. Haven't really used that expensive piece of paper for anything...Hopefully you'll get some use out of it!!

    All I can say is I remember those group papers, and man, I am so glad they are over and done with!!
