I agree with that too but my English professor was kinda strict about writing formal poetry so I just dropped the class. I like my poetry the way I write it anyway.
Well, formal poetry with beat and meter is much different than free form prose I guess. While I find that the way it reads out loud is important, I don't like strict rules and I'm not a fan of forced rhymes in poems.
One of the things that I learned first off getting an art degree was that I had to follow the rules before I could cut my own path. Grades first, nurture creativity later and on my own time. It was a good lesson because it works with my buisiness more than not. I have to make what sells, not what feeds my soul.
Some teachers however are just hardnoses and impossible to deal with. Usually it's a stick wedged firmly.
Odhinn i feel you man, finals are this week one down 4 more to go.
the only thing i cant figure out is this...my chem class i have to take to be a power engineer, the tests all semester are slotted for 50 minutes almost all of them took over an hour, so this morning at 745 i walk in to the final i get the test right at 8 and walk out at 830...when we have 2 hours he gives us a test that is 1/2 a regular test and when we have 50 minutes he makes them longer, DAMMIT MAKE YOUR MIND UP
It can work both ways. I had an International Finance class that I had pretty much aced. Final project was to move a corporation from one country to another and setup business utilizing all current (At that time) tax laws, regs, guidelines to get your product rolling out the door in the shortest amount of time. I thought it was going to be interesting, but a pain in the ass at the same time. Prof comes up to me at the end of the class and says that there is no reason for me to do the final as it won't help my grade any as I have an A already. That was the quickest OKAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY I've ever blurted out.
