Don't come to class for class 5.

Posted on Tuesday, February 17, 2009 | No Comments

I was lucky enough to check my Oncourse messages before I left for class yesterday, otherwise I would have wasted a lot of time and gas. What better news than to read an assignment that says,
"Instead of coming to class today, take 3 hours of your life over the next week and do whatever it is that makes you happiest."?


Take three hours this week and do whatever it is that makes me happiest...? Wow! That is fucking AWESOME! Although there are many activities in which I engage that make me happy, I can assure you that I will be spending much more than three hours this week doing them. In fact, I've probably already fulfilled the three-hour requirement, but I wasn't consciously trying to.

During our class hours, I met up with my buddy and got some more work done on a business we are starting up. It seems like a really good venture and it has a low start-up cost, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it will take off. Besides, I'm absolutely fed up with these companies around here that expect you to jump through a million hoops to just get an interview or, even worse, companies that don't even respond to your application even though they have a job listing posted.

Another thing that sickens me is mandatory drug testing -- what a load of crap. This is such a breech of privacy that I absolutely refuse to submit to taking one. The question is whether or not I do good work, or whether or not I am productive, not if I'm getting fucked up during my free time. By the way, urinalysis produces a false positive somewhere between 10 and 30 percent of the time and is also completely and utterly useless for determining if someone is currently intoxicated or impaired. Ditch this bullshit.
