And I was thinking about, if someday I choose (again) to go that route, going to law school. I’d have to prep for and take the LSAT all over again. So fuck that. I’ll be happy with my MPP and maybe a MEd in the future. I’ll just write the policies that you lawyers have to fight/defend in court.
I think about how shitty my finals are now
but really I’m just grateful to not be spending another end-of-term in the GIS lab. Fall of last year, with the LSAT, GIS, Capstone/Senior Thesis, graduation application, grad school applications, was the worst term of my life. This time last year I was a sleepless wreck living off caffeine and nicotine. Now I’m stressed as all hell, but there’s time to sleep, there’s no...
sassyskeptic asked: Can I have another go? Bob.
I know, right?!
matildasglasses replied to your post: corey holy shit, that is horrifying Before then, I didn’t even know such a thing could happen! He was actually a semi-pro skater and it happened when he was just fucking around with some friends at the skate park. He went to go down the rail thing and the board flew out from under him, causing him to straddle the steel railing.

Why must this class have online discussion?
Cheesus, the amount of privilege denial and poverty-judging going on in this Rander’s post is maddening. “Poor people own air conditioners, so clearly they’re not really poor” -except in grad school speak. Well, sir, then you can keep that mentality when you’re not getting any of the brownies I made for the class tomorrow. Use those fucking bootstraps and make your...
Tumblr meetup this weekend. It’s really fucking exciting and holy shit YAY!
That’d be as easy as putting a ham hock through a hula hoop– Boyfriend, coming up with by far the strangest comparison I’ve ever heard.
It’s not even BP that pisses me off so much as all the fucking and corruption (in this scenario, there’s both!) that created the Gulf disaster in the first place. Maybe I’m just naive, but even as a policy grad student I firmly believe that the role of public policy should be to ensure that precautions are taken to prevent massive fucking disasters. The presence of acoustic...
BP is making tourism ads for the Gulf Coast?
Too soon, BP. Much too soon.
I have done almost no work today
this is amazing.
There's a post going around with food items...
Childbirth is gross. Incubation of the kid before the birth is grosser. My cervix cries at the mention of ever becoming the size of a bagel. I cry at the thought of a slimy pink alien going through my bagel-sized cervix. In short, thanks (not) for ruining bagels.
I love logging in to see an inbox with nice...
You are all so wonderful.
You are one of the coolest people I follow. We also have a strangely huge number of things in common. You were the first person to recognize the genus in my handle. It was so exciting because then I realized you’re a Tree of Heaven so of course you’d get it! You’re so smart and I love reading the stuff you post and write. You have been so wonderful helping me through all this...
I want to do this number thing!
Send me a number and I’ll write a little ditty about you with words and .gifs.
Apparently intimidating profs can also be totally understanding and give you extensions when they sense you’re on the verge of mental breakdown via email. Still stressed but no longer crying.
This is a post about being learning disabled. Finishing stuff on time is difficult with ADD. I’m not even sure why, but it takes more time for me to get stuff done than what is expected of me. I’m just slow. It’s always been like that; meeting deadlines is really hard no matter how much effort I put into it. So when I’m only given 2 weeks to produce a graduate level policy...
The most amazing leftovers still reside in my fridge.
Anonymous asked: you can do it! one step at a time, don't think about all that other overwhelming life stuff. you can conquer this paper! write the shit outta it! :)
You know that point when writing a paper
when you’re really stressed out and can’t overcome your fear of failing/anxiety about everything to keep writing? So you start crying and try not to hyperventilate but that effort is futile? And then you consider dropping out of school even though that means losing your health insurance? Yeah, I’m at that point.
My sister is gone so now I have to actually get my shit together and unfuck this term project.
Turkey Day was a success
4 six-packs of Woodchuck, 2 six-packs of beer, 1 bottle of champagne, and 1 bottle of Merlot are gone (between 4 people) and tons of delicious food was eaten. Now to fix this hangover. Off we go to procure some pho.
There are only 3 packs of Woodchuck in the fridge
I fear this will not be enough. Off to Wegmans. Here is the Thanksgiving-iest .gif in my collection:
So excited to eat all the things
Everything is prepped and ready to go in the morning!
Women in Academia: I am so proud of our students. →
Undergraduates, you get a lot of shit from a lot of people. Some of it is utterly deserved. Some of it is utterly undeserved. Most of the time, you act like young adults who are on their own for the first time, faced with looming uncertainty in your future, and dealing with all the crap that comes with growing up. And lately, you’ve been making me feel very proud. It’s been all over the news,...
We’re on episode 5 of GoT. Cheesus I hate the Lannisters.
There's ANOTHER debate tonight?
What else do they need to debate? I don’t get it.
Sister has gotten me started on Game of Thrones
I’m only on episode 2 and I like it a lot. Please tell me that little blond piece of incest shit (he can’t possibly be the king’s kid!) gets what’s coming to him. And his conniving mom. NOBODY can command the murder of an innocent dire wolf without being decapitated.
This week's TWD was really disappointing
Too much drama, not enough zombies.
Sister is here!
And she’s packing a bowl! And I have a pilates final tomorrow! But grad school is off for the week! So yay!
Off to pick up my sister for real this time!

Today’s strange train ride was about life on the planet. It went something like this: We all live on a floating ball made of silicon, iron, aluminum, carbon, and a lot of other elements. This ball orbits a huge flame that exists because of nuclear fusion that makes tiny atoms into bigger ones. Then there’s fission that can make bigger atoms into tinier ones. Inside all these elements...
