Just got bored here. Chewing gum, hiting the books, and preparing my emotional grit for my new job. So hear am I, stuck in the out areas of Ithaca, New York with my lap top. Typing!
Well what to do, it was I did a few days ago when I started to browse on my lap top while visiting the downtown library, and then getting browsy heavy eyed at times. I found CultureCat, bookmarked it, and now needed to vent a little - the title, you know, triggered this " Rethoric and Feminism." Here your are as I hit the icon shell.
Oh hum. Fiddle de me. And Monday I start cooking. Again ! Reflections' cause. I can feel the swet coming down my forehead now. Yucky! Yet I am going to have a wonderful Saturday nite. I hope my partner - an IC you know, doesn't ruin it. Shes already released our photo. A lttile bad then. But I keep saying patience. But virture be damn at times too!
And I can't wait to go back to NYU and finish with my make ups. Slopping eggs for strangers, then hamburgers, and at night diner just dosen't fit. Espcially in the lists of cheap joints I have to work to pay for my education.
So I am venting. You may say. Well I keep remember previous jobs in which I had the clean out my once beautiful long nails of mustard and other odd unknowns. Smells at times too!
3 more exams, and a promissed job with a business womyn's dress. Ya! Just 7 more hard ass weeks.
So I unplugged my cable tv wire and plug in my lap top. Time Warner did a half job here. Then downloaded this feminist epistle.
Rethoric and Feminisms. It now fits. Rather snug too!

After some investigation, the most surprising aspect about Ithaca College is that its core of undergraduates are more alert and achieve higher academic scores in basic courses such as Introduction to Physics, Calculus, Psychology, or Chemistry for expample when compared to Cornell Students. Moreover, the course at Ithaca College, themselves, are tougher too.
So what gives. And then you note the more serious tone of the student body which relfects the true academic nature of Ithaca College being more Pedagogic educational centered based, and not like the gleamy - wild eyed researched pedagogy of Cornell University.
Then you note even more distinct differences in the upper levels of 300 and 400 code course numerations for Junior, and Senior levels repsectively. Greater percentage of IC students are on Dean's Lists. This gives a fuller context of the quality of instruction which centers on the students, rather than on a pet research proiect. Some of Cornell research often goes dead ended.
Thus in comparison with Cornell University, there are indeed several differences between these two institutions of academia within ithaca, New York.
