What I learned in my Chinese American Class Tonight

White people are responsible for all the suffering for Chinese Americans and all minorities.
Yeah, real eye opener for me too.
Anyway, I am not too impressed with my teacher. He just went on a conspiracy rant for hours. For the most part, his facts were right, but he did have some things wrong and he left out important facts about other things. I wanted to duke it out with him so bad, but I bit my tongue and just listen to him. I don’t really need this class…Wait a minute, I do need this class. **sigh** I guess I can’t really antagonize him too much. Anyway, I think that I am going to bust out some books and notes from other classes to use with this class.
I do not like Eddie. O. K. That is too harsh. Let’s just say that we have nothing in common. He is hardcore from the streets and I am not. Hmmm. I don’t know what I should do, but I know what I will do. I will most likely ignore him and stay within myself. I won’t ignore him, but I don’t think that I will go out of my way for him. That really shitty of my and I don’t know why I’m thinking this way.
So onward to other stuff. Cooking dinner for Suzanne on Friday. Cooking Pepper Sirloin Steak, Cheesy Garlic Bread, and Garden Stuffed Baked Potatoes, and I’ll dig up some kind of dessert. I think that I still have that Red Velvet Cake mix. Anyway, I got this thing of recipes, so I think that I will use them and then send them back.
O. K. Anthropology is tomorrow, so I need to read about native sexual habits tonight.

someone is cooking something and it smells real good.
Mia came over for a drink and I took her home to Oakland in the company van. She is going for her Masters and is trying to get into Harvard. **sigh** I am truly pitiful. Anyway, Mia is always fun to be with and it was good to see her again. She has classes M-W at nights, so I’m sure that I will run into her again.
Got the Dave Matthews CD from Michael. It’s not the right one, but I will copy it for Suzanne anyway. I’m just going to have to borrow all of the ones that he has and copy them all.
I don’t feel very well. I think that I’m going to goto sleep
Current mood: betrayed

Notes From Class

— I am going to fail this class.
— **sigh** Listening to the people around me talk about stuff just makes me realize how stupid I am. O. K., I’m not stupid; I just need to suck it up and just take care of this school stuff.
— I saw Mia Green (she is an old friend from high school); she is coming over after class so we can get some drinks and catch up on stuff.
— The teacher is here; let the slaughter begin.
— Lots of thoughts going through my head. I need to sort them out. “What Am I Doing With My Life?” Blah, blah, blah. What I need to do is find new questions to ask myself.
— What am I going to do? I think that I should have joinedthe Army; Let Uncle Sam decide my fate. Infantry, here I come. I wonder if it is too late to join. Just a minute ago, I was a person in charge, networking and socializing with five different people, walking through the halls like I owned them or something. Now I am sitting in a room with my classmates; calm on the outside, but quivering with fear and uncertainty.
— O. K. lets going with the rest of the class to look at tools.
— Looked at a display of documents from the Restaurant and Hotel Unions from the 1900’s to the present. Kind of fascinating. Wonder if there are any history records for Suzanne’s Electrician Union?
— Now in a presentation of theS. F. Strike from a labor/union view. There is a lot of information and it is very interesting. I wish that I could have a day to just sit and read all of it. But I have to figure out what to do a 15-25 page paper on. I was going to focus on the media coverage, but I think that I might focus on Hayakawa with some kind of relation to his Asian Amer background. **sigh** Blah, blah, blah. Like the shirt says, “Because you like to think people care…”
