Confessions of an Unfaithful Blogger

Usually when school starts up I find something, anything to blog about on a regular basis. This does not seem to be the case right now. Maybe i'm tapped out.

An observation: The word love isn't mentioned in the story of Creation. It isn't mentioned until about Genesis 20. No mention of God's love for Adam and Eve, their love of God, or even of cheese for that matter. None at all. Maybe it doesn't matter but I had never thought about it.

Rant: The marketing program at the university of Guelph (ok, well anywhere really but I'm speaking from experience here). Pointless. Why does anyone need 4 years to learn how consumers process advertisements? They don't. The marketing courses are fillers to call it a marketing degree. I could have saved myself $60 000 and bought Marketing for Dummies and learned about the same amount. In fact, if i retained anything from the book I would have learned more practical crap about marketing than I have in the last 4 years. Even if I had learned a lot about consumers, who cares? I have no desire to propagate the culture of materialism. I will admit, I like stuff. But, I think on this note I should decide what actually contributes to to my life and what is filler. It may be harder to let go than I think.

don't be too hard on yourself (well... maybe you're being hard on the marketing program more). i'm glad you went through the time here in guelph, no matter what degree you had to tolerate.

Thanks, i really appreciate that. And i am glad that i was at Guelph too. I think being able to vent about the degree lets me realize that I have learned something from my experience and now I have to decide how to use it (even if it is that I don't love what I studied).
