Actually, it IS Rocket Science



I’m starting to sound like an angry dad on allowance day

All I’ve got to say is:

$31.50 for an adapter so I can plug my computer into the projector at school.

$17.87 for a book that, while I’m sure I’ll enjoy reading once this shit is all said and done, I only needed at this time for abooouuuuut… I don’t know… ONE sentence reference?

$10 (approx) in gas to get to class on time since I will inevitably be pushing the pedal because I can never properly plan to get out of my apartment on time (I’ll eat that one).

$175 for textbooks (that’s for one class.  ONE. CLASS.)

$12.00 for a 6 page online journal article THAT I DON’T EVEN GET TO KEEP. And again, one sentence reference, and I’m really stretching it with the connection between it and my presentation topic.

$26 for the bottle of bourbon that I will purchase this evening once my first year of grad school has come to a close (although on that?  Even trade).

———-

So yeah.  If I want to put a clip of a “Roseanne” episode in my presentation on communication skills as a “visual aid” you can just sit there and enjoy it.  (And if it’s called into question, I personally believe it is a perfect example of the differences between accurate communication and the implications of sarcasm in the exchange of correspondence).

Bottoms up.

    If I lived closer I’d buy you that bottle of bourbon myself. And we’d celebrate the fact that you have not yet lost your mind while simultaneously achieving your goals. xo.

    • You and I are gonna have to take a little raincheck on sharing a glass of bourbon, darlin (you see, I had to kill the g because that’s what girls who drink bourbon do…when they’re drinking bourbon {I’m not drinking at 10:30 in the morning, it just seemed like the appropriate way to say darling in this scenario}).

      and HOLD UP! you’ve got a sweet lil bloggy-blog yourself? look at you bein all sneaky. Goin on the blogroll, pronto.
