Why I don't like bird courses.
- Wordy textbook that beats around the bush and makes things sound complicated when they really are dead simple concepts.
- On top of being wordy, it's also hard cover, heavy and glossy to the point where I can't read it with my lamp next to it because it reflects light so much.
- Participation marks. Clearly, if not attending a lecture already loses me 20% of my participation mark, that does NOT motivate me to participate in class. What's the point. Duh.
- Just can't find the motivation to put effort into a "bird" course. Rather take a "hard" elective. More likely to get a good grade.
