This better not be a sign of things to come

I had a dream that Rob was a puppy again and had peed on a hardback copy of A Game of Thrones.  Not cool, Rob.  Not cool.

Huh..wha? the hell did I do that?!

HIS 361  Africa: Colonial Independ              A
KIN 171A  Yoga                                                A
POL 100  Gen St: World Perspectives           A
POL 354  American Political Thought          A-

Straight fucking As?  o.O  Are you kidding me?  How the hell did I manage that this semester?  A semester which was full of stress and drama and me not knowing if I was going to have to kick ass and take names on any given night.

I still can't help feeling like there's been a glitch in the matrix and I'm going to wake up in the morning to a bunch of B minuses instead.  Well, my Economics grade still isn't in yet so there's still some hope there I guess.  Whoopie.

I still don't know how I managed to pull that off.  Straight As....god damn...

On the bright side at least this saved me the trouble of sacrificing a goat at the end of finals*

*Kidding.  Is it sad that I feel the need to clarify that?

EDIT: 10:24 pm

Econ grade just came in.  Solid B.  That's pretty damn good considering I had no idea what was going on in that class.  I'm still pretty amazed, to be honest.  I was expecting a lot more Bs this semester.  I think this calls for ice cream first thing tomorrow ^.^

And I feel fine...

Let the Rapture begin!

Skeeve's dog Kiwi has been taken up! Truly she is the messiah!

Nobody goes into teaching for the money

Thanks to the pair of second graders that ran up and hugged me today when I came in to volunteer and told me I was "the best helper ever".  You guys made my day.

A Finals Week Vignette

Le cast:

Me, finishing up my twelve page research paper for African History
Marc, a sympathetic friend

Me: Aaaaaand conclusion time.

Marc: It was the butler.

Me: ...the butler is responsible for changing customs of gender and social order in British East Africa?

Marc: Yes. Filthy Bastard.

Me: Well damn. Wish I'd known that three weeks ago.

Marc: Well, you only just now brought it up...

Me: Now I really wish I could write, "So, in conclusion, it was the butler. In Kenya. With the Church Missionary Society."

Marc: Rofl



Leave Zebra Cakes at home. Cry quietly into notebook.

When this is all over I am going to dig a whole to crawl into

Dear PoliSci Prof,

Given that you've already assigned us a 10-15 page term paper, a multiple choice final would have been really appreciated. Instead you decided to assign another 12-15 page paper as the final exam. You are aware, sir, that this is a 101 level class, are you not? Ur expectations. They r not realistic.

Well, goodbye, straight A streak. It was nice knowing you for two whole semesters.
