When you speak in a monotone voice, I have no idea what you are saying

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 15 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

I got my Calc 1 test back: 52/100. Not the worst score possible. But this score reinforces a few facts about life. First, no matter how hard a student tries, if the teacher sucks, the student will fail. This brings me to my second point, and title of the blog, if you speak in a monotone voice, I have no idea what you are saying. I didn’t realize how complicated speaking is until I started listening to my calculus teacher drone on and on. The fact of the matter is speach is a very complicated activity. The listener is alerted to specific points about what your talking about based on the inflection of your voice. If you speak monotone the entire freaking time, I CAN NOT DECERN WHAT IS IMPORTANT AND WHAT IS NOT. However, knowing me, there is always a solution to every problem, even when there isn’t a problem…or a solution. In this case, I have both. So I’m going to this other Calc class that meets at the exact same time. I’m going to see if I like it, and if I do, I am going to do everything in my power to transfer into that class. Even if the registrar hates me afterwards. I don’t need to take Calc 1 a third time.
