If you’ve not listened to Lennon & Maisy, you’re missing out.
Kinda annoying when every job you’re applying to asks for 1-2 years of experience in the field. Where am I supposed to get experience? Gotta have a job to get experience. Gotta have experience to get a job. Grah.
“These three words are straight from the article. You’re walking on a thin line here.” “You use too many quotes.” Okay. I use a lot of quotes to AVOID having to walk a thin line with plagiarism. This is a history project, for which we are required to have academic references for every single statement.
Track Changes stress me out
Because too many professors just go ape-shit all over your paper. Like, everything in this paper I got back is either highlighted, commented upon, underlined, or crossed-out. Jesus. If you wanted to write the paper, why the hell did you assign it to me? It’s barely even my own intellectual property by the time I’m done revising everything. I’m just taking it piece by piece, but...
I’m feeling vaguely sad today. I’m just thinking about graduation and life afterwards, and of course, Danny. My family wants me to come home this afternoon for Easter. Interacting with them always stresses me out; they always want to talk about the things I just mentioned as making me sad. And I don’t want to discuss it. I think it’s time to make coffee and put on some...
“Belief is a beautiful armor, but makes for the heaviest sword.” I got a call from my father this morning, telling me I had to take down a post on my Facebook. In the comments, my own lengthy reply included a mention of my family, and the manner in which I’ve seen them profess their beliefs about homosexuality, other religions, and politics in general. He demanded that I take...
A Short Story About Me that Got Quite Long
This story begins in 7th grade. I had just gotten into the public education system out of being homeschooled kindergarten through 6th grade. I was two years ahead in school. I played trombone in the band. Yeah, I did get beat up a lot. But you know who else got picked on? James. James got picked on, too. Hell, if I’d have been in a better position, I’d probably have picked on James. But instead,...
If you didn't wanna be confronted by a kid in...
3am, and I heard someone shrieking so I ran outside, wearing whatever I could throw on before charging into the snow. I saw a girl across the street, and a guy on this side. I asked him, “Did you hear someone screaming?” “Yeah,” he says, jabbing his thumb at the girl across the street. “It was her.” I read by both of their body language that there has been a fight between them, and they’re...
The floors of a couple student houses started falling in recently, so the university is paying contractors to go around reinforcing the floors. They arrived this morning, and are currently in our locked-off basements, having some sort of contest about who can make the most noise at 8am. The guy with the hammer will not be outdone by the guy with the nail gun nor the lady with the radio and the...
I wonder what these streets were like
before they were a student neighborhood. That’s what they were, right? Bought up by the University to accommodate a growing student population. I’m sure they looked about the same at night. Not like, weekends, but on a Monday maybe. New-looking older versions of the same cars. Buzzing street lamps. Probably fewer broken bottles. But the light would still strike the houses the same...
Adults, Rudeness, and Facebook
My sister got married a month ago, and just the other night one of her friends put some photos up on Facebook. He was NOT the wedding photographer they hired, he was just a friend who took some nice photos. Very kind of him. My aunt got on one of the photos and starts complaining about how you can’t see her in the picture. She complains that she hopes someone else got a better shot where...
When I’m in a public place on campus, like a study space, the library, the student union, etc., I just play “Spot the Freshmen”. It’s a simple game, but it keeps me distracted. “…..yyyyou’re a frehsman. Aaaaand….YOU. You’re a freshman. Excuse me, sir, are you a freshman? Yes I thought so. No, no, you’re fine. Love the high school...
The Pope Has Resigned, and I'm a weirdo
So my first thought at the news was picturing the hyenas from The Lion King, singing, “No Pope, No Pope, la la la la laa laaaa!” and then Scar jumps up. “FOOLS. I WILL BE POPE!”
