Week 10, Class 1

Okay, I am basically over the whole skipping thing, although I did have to kick a few butts via email. I understand that you may have to use your discretion and miss class once or twice. I just think it is so high school to pull that with a sub. I happen to have asked two amazing people to fill in for me so you could benefit from working with them. This is my beef: those of you who skipped are treating your education as if it were a right and not a privilege. This education – no matter how humble the setting – is a huge chance and if you blow it off, you are only cheating yourself. I was angry because I have a pretty good idea what each and every one of you are capable of when you care. I do not want you just toeing the line to meet the minimum requirements for the course, I want you to exceed them because you want to push yourself to your best possible manifestation. It’s all on you to take the chance you are being offered. Goodness knows, this may be the only time you have to do this.

Anyway, enough said. I seriously do not like that crap, though.
