When I was little I used to think that the giant shadow on my floor was the Gmork from that movie and I would run all the way down the hall, launch myself over the floor when I reached the door, and fly onto my bed so I didn’t have to risk stepping into his gaping maw. THIS IS A LEGITIMATE FEAR. THE OATMEAL EVEN TALKS ABOUT IT TO THIS DAY.
“The supreme arrogance of religious thinking: that a carbon-based bag of mostly water on a speck of iron-silicate dust around a boring dwarf star in a minor galaxy in an underpopulated local group of galaxies in an unfashionable suburb of a supercluster would look up at the sky and declare, ‘It was all made so that I could exist!’”—Peter Walker
OK, anything: I am caught between two evening events. The WRC is screening a documentary about an all-trans performance of The Vagina Monologues, but I have an anthropology book--a good anthropology book--a long anthropology book--that I have to read vast amounts of. I've been really slacking this weekend, entering The Other Side two nights in a row and treating myself to a Lazy Hungover Sunday (one of my favorite things). That shouldn't actually be material in my decision but it factors in feelings-wise. So: should I see the movie, or give the book a good long evening session? I have every bit of faith in actually being able to keep up a good pace for several hours with this particular book.
Peter! I think the documentary would probably be awesome, but it sounds like you’ve got to get some work done. I’d probably opt for the anthropology book since you do enjoy it and it’s productive at the same time!
I posted on facebook “Ain’t no party like a homework party, cause a homework party is mandatory.” Some punkass bitch commented on it “yay for working for a living?”
Incorrect. Every time I complain about homework, I know I’d rather be doing it than working some bullshit job. I’m going to college to get a degree that will get me closer to a job I actually care about. I don’t care how much homework I have to do to get there, I’m not going to waste my time working at an entry level job somewhere that will never pay me more than 10 dollars an hour when I could be going to school and making my way closer to a degree, which is vital for ANY job I’m interested in.
More like yay for not having to work a worthless job “for a living”. I go to school and LEARN. What better way to spend your time than making yourself a better person every day?
