Subject: update on field trip and more woes....
Date: June 8, 2010 at 12:43 pm PST

so i went on the field trip and it was just as awful as i imagined. i won't be graphic here but lets just say the amount of manure and filth these poor goats were living in seemed criminal to me and yet other students went on and on about how well kept it was! disturbing to say the least. i wasn't given an opportunity to ask the questions i thought were relevant but at least my attitude clearly conveyed how i felt. in hindsight i would not have gone but rather taken the point loss.

on that note, we had a quiz yesterday and i chose to answer the questions that related to the USDA grading of various animal parts with " i object to discussing the exploitation and commodification of non-human animals". i flunked the quiz of course and the teacher wrote this on my paper "I was forced to give you this grade as you refused to answer several of the questions. I sympathize with your beliefs but I am curious as to how you plan to deal with these questions on the final exam. Please see me before the exam."

so that's where it stands right now. i will have to talk to her at some point but i don't do well in confrontational situations so i'm not looking forward to it. this all just really makes me frustrated! what the heck does the grading of animal parts have to do with being a registered dietitian anyhow? UGHHHHHHH!!!
