taken from my take-home astronomy exam:




rofl <3

some dumbass in my class was criticizing him while i was walking to the library. i wanted to punch her face in. she's this woman for whom science totally escapes, even rather self-explanatory concepts (not even related to physics!), and asks him questions about crap he just said (and he's really rather good at explaining complicated concepts re: physics and science). and she has been annoying me all semester. not because she asks questions in class, or even 'stupid' questions. it's because she's made it to her age and she's acting like a 16 year old who, liak, toadaly just doesn't get it omg lol!! science is so weird!!11 and yeah, she takes notes and shit, and probably reads her text, but she isn't trying to give a fuck. which makes me mad.

anyway she says something like how he teaches poorly and that he's really weird and that's why no-one in class responds to him. no, the reason no-one in class responds to him is because everyone in class thinks they're better than him for some fucking reason and it makes me so fucking mad. this isn't to say Dr Sutter is better than anyone. i just mean, you know, i feel like my classmates are like 'lolololol uncool geeky nerd guy who loves science rofl rofl what a weirdo.' he's only 34, if i recall correctly, but they act like he's this out-of-touch old man. and i guess he is out-of-touch but it's just because he isn't conventional and whatever. he's fucking hilarious and no-one gets his jokes. that's not his fault. and he's such a happy guy even though he knows practically no-one in his astronomy courses pay attention (although he seems to have better luck with his general physics courses).

so, Dr Eric Sutter from Ulster County Community College... if you happen to google yourself one day and find my journal entry, i just want you to know that you are awesome and one of the best professors in the world and i'm the one in your class who laughs at all your jokes and actually writes them down to tell her friends later ('Mercury is like the Rodney Dangerfield of the solar system...') and if it didn't get me escorted off-campus i would have smacked the shit out of everyone and bitched at them to pay the fuck attention and give you the respect you deserve!! I AM GOING TO MISS YOU SO MUCH I WISH I COULD TAKE YOUR ASTRONOMY CLASSES EVERY FUCKING SEMESTER.

That's how I feel about Dr. Harris! He's fucking amazing and there's only 1 or 2 people (if that) per semester that understands how goddamn awesome he is!
I just happen to be browsing the internet and found this blog. I am so happy that there is someone else out there that thinks that Dr. Sutter is as awesome as I think he is. He is such a funny guy and I feel bad for him every time people talk during his class or sleep, or just don't appreciate the information he is providing. He is intelligent, funny and interesting, I have had him for Calc Based Physics 1 and 2 and Astronomy 101 he is hands down the best teacher I have had the privilege of learning from in my schooling career. Thanks Dr. Sutter!
i don't know you, but i am SO GLAD someone agrees with me!! i had yet to meet someone who loved Dr Sutter as much as i did (or in fact liked him at all)! i remember one day he brought a REAL LIVE ASTRONOMER to class and he was so giddy with excitement, it was so cute. just remembering it makes me smile. he also took time from his free time to find me a professor who could help me fix my glasses once. he had so many funny jokes (i've saved the notebooks i wrote them in!), and i thought his notes were ridiculous in an adorable way (how he just puts pretty pretty pictures and usually doesn't explain what they are... does he do this in phyiscs, too? rofl).

if you like his brand of awkward humour and interestingness, you may like Dr. Raymond. BUT DON'T TAKE HIS HISTORY COURSE. he assigns these huge readings in there it's insane. take his American Government course if it fills some gen ed for you. he is so funny and everything about him is over the top and he is so oblivious to his own awkwardness, rofl. unfortunately he abides very stringently to the strunk & white form of essay writing and his grading for essay exams can be very frustrating as a result. but if you make your essay as boring as possible (no adjectives, yall) and put lots of examples, you should be fine.

anyway i don't even know who you are (who are you!!) so i'm sort of just putting it out there for any other Ulster students who may stumble upon my post, rofl. but seriously when i got your comment, i called all of my friends in excitement about it! you totally brightened my day, despite being sick and everything. thank you, fellow Ulster student. <3 i miss it there so much, cherish those days!!
oh also i put an equation in my stars and galaxies final paper and he wrote 'WOW! An equation!!' and had to tell me personally how excited he was that i put an equation in, lmao!
