Guess I just need a place to rant, but I hate my essay that I have to edit and redo. I hate attempting to pour my creative thoughts into some bullshit that I come up with so that I can appease the teacher marking the essay that has a topic that I don't give a damn about. I really have no drive to make the changes to this, as simple as it may be.What's the point? Sure there's the marks, but that's an obvious reason. What's the actual point of a topic that forces me to see the underlying depth in a novel, when I see the novel as fairly shallow in that field and any depth given to it would be complete BS; something invented because either someone is so caught up in themselves that they believe they can see the hidden meaning in every piece of literature that they read, or that some person decided to convince others to look in depth when they realize that there's truly nothing there so that they can laugh at everyone who buys into it.I feel far more enthusiastic about this post than the assignment, lol. I hate how every piece of literature, art, drama production, etc. supposedly has some deeper meaning that you need to look at very closely. Maybe this is why I don't understand why a painting can be worth millions and represent society's innermost struggles when it's just a couple of lines splashed across a blank piece of paper. Some people seem to think so far outside the box, that they forget what's real in what they're viewing and begin making up BS about the inner emotional turmoil that isn't there. When the themes of novels are defined by the insignifant things, there's obviously a communication problem going on, ex: a person stares up at the clouds and this represents his desire to soar free above and beyond his inner tragedy, or a run down house represents the pillars of society failing, water droplets fall into a barrel and the rise in water level represents a person's journey through birth to death (this is all stuff I pulled at random off the top of my head). When the actual main events mean so little, but the small things define the story, I find this to be something that's way overanolized.Sorry if this post is pointless, but I hate english class so much. Some of the stuff we do is good and truly insightful, but so much of it sucks and has no relevance to anything.

Robbob, I totally can understand where you're coming from. When I was in high school, I was really bad at English, and my sophomore year I made an agreement with one of my friends that I'd do all his geometry if he did my English. It seemed like a good idea at the time. The next year though, I pretty much got screwed over because I didn't know how to write a good essay and think through what I was saying to make sure it made sense to a reader. I personally am not a fan of speech class. I had to give a speech today to my speech class of 30, and I was scared stiff (I wrote the speech at 2:30 last night). I'd like to say that there's no reason for it and that I shouldn't even worry about passing, but I know in reality that it's pretty much a necessity to be able to talk to people intelligently, regardless of what profession you enter. I worked hard that year getting better at English, and my senior year took English in my town's college and managed to get an A. It may not seem like there's a point to English, but the books they make you read help your vocabulary grow, and if you speak smart then people will be more likely to listen to you. Don't you think it's a lot better to listen to a smart person than somebody who has the vocabulary of a first grader? English also enhances your creative thinking and organization in writing papers. You have to write a lot of papers in college, in pretty much any area of study over whatever you're studying. It also, a lot of times, just helps you think outside the box and analyze what you've learned, and hones your critical thinking skills, which are always helpful later in life, and leads to better decision making. So while it might all seem useless, in the long run it'll turn out helpful, so just hang in there and make it through the class!
