I'm going to post this on FB in a couple of days (not today because it is my grandparents' anniversary and I already posted their pics today - don't want to post too many things in one day).

However, since I'm not FB friends with all of you, I'll post it here now. I wish I had this guy for a teacher when I was in school. http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000087239639...

That is brilliant. That high school isn't far from where I grew up. And yeah, you forget that each individual casualty was an entire life with many people that cared about them and that were impacted by their death.

<sigh> Midterms already. I hate the quarter (as opposed to semester) system. The second I get into my groove, it's half over. Then I turn around and it's a whole new quarter to get into, rinse repeat.
I Wonder if it's gonna be like this when I grow up and get a real job like all of you guys.:D
I feel you.
This is a very productive term for me! My midterm consisted of ch. 1 of my dissertation! Well, a very rough first draft, but hey...and I have to present it for another class, so things are clicking together and all working to my proposal next Spring.
It's so nerdy being home on a F night doing HW!
;D
Being at USF M-Th nights, I only have the weekend to do my work!

LOL right? Every time I walk across campus I get hit up by at least a couple people telling me there's a Huskies (Go Dawgs!) game that night. Yeah, like I have time to go to a game...even *if* I wanted to deal with traffic/parking.

I'm at school IN CLASSES 6 hours a day, plus time spent in the library (thank god it's open til midnight) plus commuting, plus all the OTHER crap I have to do, yanno like earning money... I spend most of every single weekend these days pretty much 24 hours a day doing some kind of homework. PLUS I have this lit class I have to take...I still don't understand why, and there's like 8 novels(!) to be read during the quarter plus all the other crap.

I know this is sexist and I"m selling out the sisterhood, but I can't get used to women sports announcers.

Anyone in particular? You talkin sideline reporter? Studio analyst? Segment reporter(like Erin Andrews and Smantha Steele on College Gameday)? Or just women in general having anything to do with sports?

Well, we did it... got my gramma packed up and moved. two runs in a U-Haul van and one packed car later, she's too worn out to bitch at us. we're still doing some laundry for her (i think 5 loads down, and one to go), and she needs to unload some boxes, but she's pretty much set for the time being.

so, tomorrow, my mom & i are going out for a girls' day to celebrate and decompress.
