Let me see. Currently I have an abnormally high amount of chickenpox viruses in my body. I have been reading Pride and Prejudice, which I hold an indifferent opinion of. And I have been steaming at the vocabulary requirements for Gileskirk.

In the good old days you simply had to read certain selections of certain books before listening to lectures. (Not that I always did) Now by the subjective ruling of the parents we have to find certain words in the selections and define them. That would not be too bad if only two or three words have to be defined. But in reality 7-10 words are required. This makes for considerable annoyance and probably a significant waste of time. I could agree to looking the words up, but I see little profit in copying down the definitions and writing sentences. These vocabulary assignments are work with almost no profit.
