I usually don't do this, but fuck it, I need to get it out of my system.
Today was the first day for one of my classes. I am a CS student, however for my last semester I thought maybe I should take some of those blow-off classes with minimal work load so that I may enjoy my last semester, and work more on some personal projects before I become busy with the professional life. This class I am about to talk about is one of those non-technical classes that got recently shoved into the catalogue as one of the CS upper division electives that are mainly about social justice under the veil of tackling ethical issues. I know big fucking mistake, but I really wanted to kick it back a little this semester after a couple of pretty rough semesters.
Anyway, during this lecture, the professor asked every single student to introduce themselves and share something personal. I just so happened to be considering to participate once more to the Nijmegen march as some sort of post graduation gift to myself. So I say "yeah I hiked about 100 miles in 4 days a couple of years ago which was a fun event for me" (Big fucking mistake #2), the bitch just fucking stared at me for a whole second and gave me a suspicious "oh...that's interesting", I didn't think much about it at that moment, "whatever" that's what I thought to myself.
At the end of the class, doing her closing speech about how thinking about ethics and blah blah blah is important, she throws this little gem "... in some situations we are prone to lie for a reason or another, like some of you today when sharing something about yourselves might have changed the truth a bit in order for you to impress your fellow classmates. Like for example, hiking 100 miles while in reality you might have just hiked 10 or 15 miles..."
Needless to say that I was fuming inside, pretty much all the classmates just turned to look at me with a fucking smirk on their stupid fucking faces. Even if it happened to be hyperbolic in order to make a point, it was out of place, even a couple of friends told me that it was weird how she just threw it out there, just like that. Fucking piece of lard probably couldn't imagine anyone able to walk a distance longer than between her couch and the fridge. Once you fucking earn this medal (Sorry for the imgur link, couldn't get imgtc to upload shit for some reason) come back to my god damned face and tell me that I am fucking liar . I really wanted to confront her at the end of damned class just to tell her "wtf was that about?!", but decided to cool it off instead of risking a BFM #3.
I am just glad you guys still exist so I can rant and feel somewhat better afterwards...although this was somewhat of a non-issue.
