Agora Days? Yeah, right …

It's a fun activity that someone tried to make educational for "academic" classification. It's one-and-two-thirds movies spread out over four days. It's a fun, laid-back sports practice that tries to exclude players who aren't "serious."
Yes, that's right, Agora classes, I am calling you out!
Just kidding. Kind of. I actually really like Agora Days if only because it offers a break at the worst time of year. I mean, February has got to be the most depressing month. And have you seen the crazy weather we've been having? Seriously, anyone who doesn't believe in climate change should live here for a week ….
But this year I am mad. My Flavor of Love Girls Charm School class was rejected. Which I could handle and all, even if the hopes of teaching such a class were my only reason for not dropping out of school these past few weeks. It's just that the way that I found out was so polite that I'm really having trouble complaining about it.
- Dear Proposers of Flavor of Love Girls Charm School:
Thank you very much for your Agora Days proposal! Unfortunately, we weren't able to accommodate your class this year.
We thank you for taking the time to propose a class, and hope that you'll take the initiative to submit class proposals in the future! Please contact us with any questions that you may have.
All the best,
The Agora Days Team
Mr. John Garvey
They even wished me all the best! How am I supposed to be outraged about this?! Still, I can't believe they didn't accept my favorite TV show as a serious class! Perhaps trying to obtain the ever-hallowed academic status was a bad idea, though.
Despite my somewhat questionable class proposal, I do have to admit that I really don't understand the selection process. Regardless, the Muslim Women, Modern Problems, Globalization, Gay Culture, DDR, Muppet Show, and Ed Norton classes all look incredibly good, just to name a few. Of course, there are a few that look god-awful, but since I'm no longer a subbie and no longer have last pick, who cares?!
Hopefully there's no such thing as Agora Days karma. I always have this really irrational fear of being stuck in an all-boys sports class or confusing language class that I don't understand. Oh well, let's just keep in mind that Agora Days is what you make it, so let's make it rock!
