So I am taking an online class. All you fine folks would totally love it, it’s an anthro class about sex, gender, and culture!

BUT. We use that stupid, terrible program for coursework that everybody hates: BLACKBOARD. Why is it so awful? Why does it haunt my nightmares? I do not know, my friends. I do not know. It’s ordinarily just mildly frustrating, but today it seems to have realized how terrible it is and died of shame, because it no longer works at all. Fortunately I have already downloaded all the readings I need for the essay I am writing today, but I am also supposed to submit the essay through Blackboard and that ain’t happening! Sure, I can just email it to my prof—but I’m not happy about this. I will need to start next week’s readings tomorrow, and what if I still can’t make Blackboard work? >:( I am most seriously displeased.
