Angry Arts Students

But.. we’re studying what we love?!

Now I’m sure everyone considers a Bachelor of Arts to be a complete joke (Personally, I thought Commerce was a complete joke too!) But unfortunately there are some deluded students out there who think otherwise.

A friend of mine recently took some retard-friendly breadth subject from the Arts faculty so they could relax and only focus on core subjects.

So how did it go? Not so great… The cohort was the main problem from what I’ve been told.

Now seriously, a class filled with latte-sipping, Beret-wearing, leftist losers constantly whinging about useless issues which nobody could care less about isn’t exactly a dream cohort especially when you’re looking to just sleep through classes and attain a perfunctory H1.

The real problem is that many Arts students feel as if they constantly express their views that it will make a difference and the world will change, just because they argued their point over and over and over again. Very logical thinking. This often leads to in-class discussion which gets very heated, not that the tutor minds though. Why? Because the tutor can just step back and watch the stubborn students debate about their opinions and ideologies, while the tutor “facilitates” it by asking some super generic questions and making vague statements so they can continue to appear that they really care (Before you begin the usual rage, just note that a friend of mine actually tutored a couple of Arts subjects and said this herself).

Luckily, the saving grace for my friend (Who did manage to get H1), was that the content was so obvious that the majority of it can be understood well with absolutely no attendance. Yet somehow there are Arts retards who actually major in this field  and struggle to get H2B’s and H2A’s. Absolute geniuses!

Luckily though, as time passes, most of the Arts students will get what they deserve, which is often entry into a useless Masters Program (Goooo Melbourne model!), a DipEd and a passive teaching gig (Ambitious yo!), the longer path to a law career (By doing a JD and hoping for the best in entering the saturated Law graduate market) or maybe a lovely retail or fast-food gig (Sorry, had to throw in the Arts graduate stereotype).

The sad truth is a few years spent reading useless texts, writing garbage essays, debating hopeless issues won’t exactly get you too far unless you’ve got other things going for you. Life isn’t fair.

Oh and I’m not expecting any Arts kids to accept anything written in this post. Just go back to picking out spelling mistakes and grammars throughout the blog. Oh and arguing too. Stay delusional guys!
