that little pop you just heard was the sound of your mind rupturing

in one of my Educational Leadership classes earlier this week:

professor: "did you know they decided to stop teaching cursive as part of the curriculum?"

one music ed. major: "that is so stupid! how are people going to sign their checks?!?"

blank stares, long pause

prof: "yeah... lots of people sign in cursive..."

music ed: "i mean, older people will write in cursive and they won't even know how to read it!!"

---

later in class (same day):

prof: "so why do the authors say we need theory?"

another music ed major: "it's a necessary evil."

theory = evil...?

my mind: BLOWN.
