I Mean, Really?

This is the last photo class I’m taking which is called Location. Today, I received an e-mail from my teacher about the supply list. It could be worse, but it makes me wonder, what are we doing in this class? I’m keeping an open mind and keeping calm. I want to share with you the supply list:

Students need to have all these items in a portable container ( not soft bag ) which will be checked

at the beginning of the second session. If you are missing any items you will not be allowed into class.

He is serious about not letting you into class. I knew someone who took this class and she got kicked out because she forgot one thing! I’m not a bad student (and neither was she), but I do not want to get on his bad side.

What’s up with the hard hat? Will my life be in danger?

…And a roof rack?

I better start eating some spinach.
