Regalia. When i graduated from college, i was pretty sure i would never put my cap and gown on again. Boy was I wrong. Since im staff, i get to march with the faculty and staff at graduation tonight. Sure I only have a Bachelors gown, and sure i am younger than probably a third of the graduates, and sure caps and gowns make you look silly; But at least im getting my moneys worth for all i paid for the damn things!
“A few days later, President Obama said the police acted stupidly. Big mistake! A president should never get involved in a local, city-specific issue. President Bush never did, no matter how flooded a city got.”—Stephen Colbert (via savingpaper) (via apsies) (via think4yourself)
I had to run out to get lunch today for me and a co-worker. I had exactly 44 min to get food and get back before my next appointment. While getting condiments, i apologized to a lady for taking so long and tried to hurry out of her way. She patted my on the arm and said “hunny, im in no hurry. I am a retired person, where on earth do i have to go in a hurry.” I looked at her dead in the face and replied “I have never been so jealous of anyone in my whole life.” She Laughed. Responded “one day hun, one day”
This may have to do with my feelings for children in general, but i am of the opinion that if your child is over 5 years old, a parent of the opposite sex should not take them in to the bathroom with them. Particularlly when you are in place where it is unlikely they are going to to be kidnapped! I work at a small christian college, no fear leaving your kid in the hallway while you pee. And if they need to pee, after 5 they are old enough to walk in to a bathroom alone and take care of themselves. This was prompted when i walked in to the womens bathroom and there was a 7 year old standing in the stall with the door wide open peeing. Call me crazy, but pretty sure he would have been ok to either wait out side or got to the Mens Room!
Icarus Today my father made wings out of feathers and wax so that we could escape the king’s castle. But I flew too close to the sun and the wings melted. I then fell into the ocean below. I can’t swim. FML
Odysseus Today I came up with a plan that helped my country win a 10-year war. But, because I forgot to pray to Poseidon, I won’t get to go home for another 10 years. FML
Oedipus I’ve been really busy. I solved the riddle of the Sphinx, gained entrance to the city of Thebes, killed the king and took his place, and then married his wife and had several kids. As it turns out, the guy that I killed to become king was my dad. And the chick that I married and had kids with was my mother. FML
You know what sucks? When your right out of college and up to debt cause you had to put your self through undergrad and had no help from mommy and daddy and your credit cards are maxed out on simple living expenses, and you cant take vacation from your job cause as a new employee you dont accumulate that much PTO and you can just pick up and take unpaid time off cause you have to pay for rent and bills and all with out the help of parents or grandparents or a significant other. Yeah thats what sucks. Its also called real life. Welcome to it.
