I have another Choose Your Own Topic essay due this Thursday.

For Technocultures.

I am cluuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuueless.

Why the fuck did I even choose Technocultures? It's been nothing but mind-numbing philosophical theories linked precariously to technology and I haven't been able to take anything in. I was going to do the suggested question on writing an essay about writing the essay I'd be/I am/I had written (a metaessay?) and how technology affects the way you think, but then in this morning's tutorial, someone else said they were going to do it and they had taken it so literally and ignored the thought-shaping aspect and our tutor said it was probably the hardest suggested topic but that he could do it as long as he actually said something of importance and then I said I wanted to take it more in the other direction and have it focus more on the thought-shaping and he said that that wasn't even part of the question!

And... what the hell do you argue when you're writing an essay about your act of writing the very essay you're writing to argue something in. How can you possibly argue anything in that?!


If I'd knwon this essay was going to be a Choose Your Own Death essay when I was pre-enrolling, I would not, I repeat would not have chosen Technocultures.
