Would anyone like to come over and be my live-in best friend until I go back to school in approximately 2.5 weeks?
Refreshments will be provided.
For the first time in recent memory I don’t have at least one half-finished water bottle in my room so I’ve been lying here feeling like I just made three laps around the Sahara Desert for an hour and a half because the kitchen is all the way downstairs and I’m pooped.
Anonymous asked, "Maybe you can help with this. I took part one of alcohol edu and haven about a month ago but have gotten no email to continue to part 2. The course progress says my intercession is 365 days but the programming office said it needed to be done by today. Did they mean just part one or part two as well? I really don't want my registration to be delayed because of this"
So it’s been two years since I did AlcoholEdu and all I remember is that it was merely a review of what I learned in my sophomore year health class minus Mr. Kravitz’s exciting tales of college drinking gone wrong.
I think I only needed the first part completed before I actually started college. My boyfriend thinks he didn’t get the email for the second part until around Christmas time, and he just went through this last year. I don’t know if it takes that long, necessarily, but I think you’re A-OK only having done the first part.

I feel like organising third graders by their physical traits subtly advocates racism at a young age. ??
It does sound like that. And maybe it did, a bit. I don’t remember exactly what we were doing…I think my teacher might have been looking for a creative way to call us to line up for the gym or the library or something that wasn’t just “row 1, row 2, etc.” My school was essentially all-white but I guess that’s still suggesting that there might be a preference for certain traits…although I’m pretty sure my teacher was at least attempting to be random.
When I employ similar tactics with my kindergartners, I usually go with things they’re wearing or ways their hair is styled or other characteristics that involve a choice. But that was a little less doable at my elementary school because we had uniforms and a strict dress code.
Ultimately, it probably wasn’t the ideal way to go about it. But I certainly don’t think my teacher had bad intentions.
America’s Next Top Model was such a treasure.
A real treasure.

- After almost 21 years of life, I still have no idea what to do with my feet when I sleep. Do I wear socks and have them poke out the covers? Do I not wear socks and keep them tucked under? What kind of socks are best? I have no idea.
- I almost always type on my phone with a single thumb even though I know using both hands is significantly faster.
- My natural hair color is dirty blonde, but I didn’t want to be a blonde as a child, so my entire family let me think my hair was actually brown. One time in third grade my teacher was having us organize ourselves based on physical traits and everyone yelled at me for going with the brown-haired kids because I was clearly blonde and I still have not forgiven my family for allowing me to live such an obvious lie.
- I eat round things like burgers and filled donuts in a circle. I eat all the edges first and save the middle for last because that’s where all the good stuff is concentrated.
- I have a bruise that reminds me of a volcano underneath my pinky nail from getting hit during a floor hockey game four months ago.
I want to love “Anaconda” because I’m a fan of Nicki Minaj overall but I feel like “Baby Got Back” is not a great song to sample? It’s…It’s very much it’s own song, you know? “Anaconda” feels more like “Baby Got Back ft. Nicki Minaj” than a new song. The sample is overpowering.
I don’t know. I guess I just want more Nicki and less Sir Mix-a-Lot.
I never thought I would run across that particular problem, but here I am.
I want to switch to wearing sleep shirts to bed because I’ve accepted the fact that my butt is going to continue to grow at a steady pace until it takes over the world so there’s no point in confining my bottom half in shorts.
But I went to Forever21 for cheap options and all of them had stupid sayings across the front.
"Coffee is my homie and my lover and my friend." No coffee is a horrible drug that has taken hundreds of dollars from me and leaves me dehydrated every day.
"Don’t forget to smile." I’m not forgetting I just don’t want to.
"I think my Prince Charming lost his map." My actually charming boyfriend might be a little hurt to see that one.
Maybe I should just buy a pack of extra large mens Hanes t-shirts and go with that.
Remember that time I left my wallet on top of my car at the gas station and didn’t realize it until I was already in the drive-thru line at Starbucks so I panicked and left the line just to find that my wallet somehow managed to stick to my car despite all the twists and turns between the gas station and Starbucks so I managed to sneak back in line behind an extra person and they just accepted my drink and I accepted theirs and it’s like it never happened???
The moment the Every Simpsons Ever marathon becomes significantly less addicting is fast approaching.
Back to resorting to HGTV I go.
To the people who are outraged that there is no pumpkin in pumpkin spice lattes, let me let you in on a little secret.
Pumpkin is not the ingredient that gives “pumpkin”-flavored foods their taste. By itself, pumpkin has a mild, earthy flavor. The mildness is partially why pumpkin makes for a good vehicle for sugar and spices. Any squash-y flavor in the pumpkin is easily masked by a good helping of ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice.
The flavor of this combination of spices has become so closely tied to pumpkin pie that it is now packaged together and simply called “pumpkin pie spice.”
So of course there is no real pumpkin in a pumpkin spice latte. No one wants a squash-flavored latte. They want a ginger-cinnamon-nutmeg-allspice-flavored latte.
