The worst part of being an English major, in my experience, has to be the ridiculous amount of people who assume that I'm some grammar guru and the embodiment of a Webster dictionary. I mean, I DO write a lot of papers, but it's not like I go to class and learn the finer points of the conditional tense. I think that so many people misinterpreting what I have a passion for learning is just a tad disheartening.
But I still love being an English major! ("Go Team!" and what not). Okay, back to my finals.
