    Had to do an assignment where I had to look up old articles from the Fresno Bee (Pre-WWII). I didn't think it would be too fun, but I was mistaken. There were some gems like this one:



    BEEEEEEEEES!

    I'm refusing to acknowledge anything Disney produces of Star Wars. The only truth is KOTOR!

    So I said "fuck it" for one of my last papers and decided to write it all in haiku form. If my teacher was looking for creativity from me, then he can't complain when I hand something like that in to him. Channeling my inner Lil' Mayo alter-ego, go!

    One of our honor GE professors permitted us to submit sestinas rather than ~12 page research papers.

    I think he got like two sestinas from two classes (one being a hilarious masterpiece from our resident genius poet/rapper).  I don't get you people.  Why can't you just take the easy out?

    Only two... So from what I understand the students had a choice of writing either one page or 12 pages, and only like two people chose the one page.

    It was a honors GE class, which means anything less than an A was unacceptable.  It also means any try-harding  involved should be kept to a minimum as to not detract from the many other projects we were engaged in, like local charities, or the geological mapping of California, or what have you.  All the honors students are amazing, and most of us had hectic schedules and obligations.  Others watched anime (not naming any names here).

    So, when given the choice to do a sestina, which would definitely take brainpower, or a research paper, many opted for the paper.  The research paper is a well-practiced form, one we've gotten many A's with, and one that doesn't require innovation.  Since the topic was literally "any subject pertinent to the class" it was a chance to rant about whatever one found most interesting, and then find numbers/data/proffesional opinions regarding the subject and learn more about it.  Its relaxing in a way, since its just digestion and response instead of creation.  I think I did mine on gender identity or the advantages of archaic European civilization.

    I thought about doing a sestina, and I think I came to the same realization as everyone else:
    "This is my final.  This is 45% of my grade.  This stanza is 7.5% of my whole grade.  The choices I make in this stanza restrains my other stanzas.  Can I display my mastery of the material with this?  Can I reference some of our many lessons, or embed data naturally in this form?  Doesn't this 7.5% of my grade sound kinda stupid and not very poetic/good/academic at all?"
    And then I wrote a research paper.

    Also, French didn't say anything about having to include less material for doing it in haiku form.  That alone strikes me as daunting, or overkill.  I hope you get some kind of return for the haiku.
