Yesterday I got an email from enrollment services at University of Victoria informing me that a contemporary arts class I completed in 2008 has been cancelled and dropped from my registration. I am to refer to an online course schedule for an alternate course as this might affect my credits towards my graduation.

Firstly, the contemporary arts class I took was just for fun, before I realized that University classes make everything you think fun NOT fun.

Also, I graduated 5 years ago.

Here's a quote from Tupac in regard to our education system. It's one of my favorites.

“School is really important: Reading, writing, arithmetic. But what they tend to do is teach you reading, writing, arithmetic…then teach you reading, writing, arithmetic again. Then again, then again, just making it harder and harder just to keep you busy…there should be a class on religious cults, there should be a class on police brutality, there should be a class on apartheid, there should be a class on racism in America, there should be a class on why people are hungry, but…their class is on…gym….You know?…I like foreign languages. I think that they are important, but I don’t think it should be required. Actually, they should be teaching you English, and then teach you how to understand double talk, politician’s double talk. Not teaching you how to understand French and Spanish and GERMAN. When am I going to Germany? I can’t afford to pay my rent in America! How am I going to Germany?”
