Smile, your on camera!

If you make use of the word “bolster” without referring to a pillow, your credibility increases.

If you use “your” when you mean “you’re” on a sign in the apartment complex you own, your credibility plummets.

I’m freaked out by phallic symbols, but sometimes I think I am more freaked out by yannic symbols.  What does that mean?

It’s Hunger Action Month…

Help support Feeding America's Hunger Action Month

…And all I’ve done is sign online petitions and post this picture.

It does.

I just spent FIFTY-FIVE MINUTES looking for a parking spot.  I spent more time trying to park than my class actually takes.  I finally gave up, having wasted so much money on gasoline and single-handedly advancing the earth toward its globally warmed death by fifteen years.  I went to Sweet Eugene’s (College Station coffee place) afterwards and irresponsibly bought myself a coffee beverage.

In my Spanish class on Monday the professor made everyone take turns reading the syllabus aloud to get us used to speaking in front of the class.  I was appalled by my peers’ inability to read.  I suppose I need to get used to it though, if I’m going to teach high school.

I was particularly appalled when this one girl read.  She was so bad at reading, that I suspect she probably was dyslexic.  So that would lessen my appall, except this happened:  She was stumbling over the word “conscientiously” and another girl corrected her.

“It’s ‘consequentially’,” she said.
“Ohh, ‘students should behave consequentially…'”
