I really wasn't going to bitch about school in this journal, but.. [Jan. 11th, 2007|03:18 am]

So I just received an email informing me I've been placed on academic probation for receiving a 3.182 this past semester.


"Dear Student:

Because your grade point average (GPA) earned this past semester was
between 1.0 and 1.99, you are being placed on academic* probation*. The
probation system is automatic."

So I hit 'reply', typed, "Excuse me? Could you please explain to me in what world 3.182 falls between 1.0 and 1.99?" and hit 'send'.


Most of you probably interpretted that as sarcasm. It wasn't necessarily intended that way. This is more an ongoing statement of just how fucked up in the head going to college has made me. drrrrr....college has made me retarded....

My mind has become so twisted and bent by this bureaucratic bullshit that like, sure, whatever, I'm pretty sure that for the past 23+ years every single person I've ever met would agree that 1.0 and 1.99 are both *lower* than 3.182 *counts fingers* 1.... 2.... 3....  ..4! yup, still checks out! and if my understanding of decimals is still up to date..

YOU'RE GODDAMNED RIGHT THAT WAS FUCKING SARCASM

and yes i fucking know this is an automated email FIX YOUR FUCKING COMPUTER SYSTEM $3,000 per semester times 25,000+ students = enough money to pull your heads out of your asses for at least a fucking second and do something that FUCKING WORKS. and YES i am fully aware that my automated response went straight into your automated piece of shit spam folder where it will sit for forty days before being deleted. and NO i will NOT schedule an appointment with a dean, NO i will NOT call 262-5858 or stop in
Room 70. Over the past four years I've been spammed and harassed mercilessly and received more mind-blowingly idiotic emails, letters, and phone calls from this University than any other organisation in my entire life.

Please god let the mercury and radioactive filth gurgle out of the Wingra Watershed and swamp this fucking city, leaving the bodies of the animals from the wildlife preserve hanging from the crumbling remains of this capitol and campus..
