UCF English MA LCT graduates! Grad school is all over :O This is the only graduation pic I got till my rents take the pics off the digital camera…and knowing how technologically slow they are…it could take a while.
school is finally almost over. I can’t wait to dye my hair for graduation. also, wtf was with the cold snap today?
It’s more than enough to make you feel sick, I tell you what. Least I now know I can go without food to help reduce this indentured servitude!
- I don’t have to present my conference paper till Wednesday
- the weather is perfect for me…yay for NOT feeling cold.
- I discovered energems
- my hair was totally flat when I woke up this morning…err, afternoon.
- it’s the second to last Monday…ever.
yay. I got my ticket at 730ish am today…then drove home and went back to sleep for 5hrs. lol. I can’t wake up early anymore. Mostly going cause it’s my last semester and I haven’t ridden a rollercoaster in forever.
People are ridiculous. I got this extremely arrogant and self entitled message on Webcourses from a student in one of the online classes I grade for. Basically they said they shouldn’t have to use any direct quotes from the text in their discussion posts if they can prove their point without them…that “quotes shouldn’t be used to just for the sake of using them and that’s basic lit 101.” Oh yeah….and they also said they had taken much harder lit classes than this and had a perfect 4.0gpa, like that should automatically make their grade higher and excuse them from following the apparently earthsahtteringly difficult requirement of finding a couple of quotes to throw in. and then they said they were going to meet with the Dean to dispute this “unfair and harsh grading” uh..wtf,just put some goddamn quotes and don’t send pompous emails about how smart you are.I just told them I would have the Professor personally grade their work, and that quotes were required. k, rant done.
My official first slice of Lazy Moon from the new location. White slice with hickory smoked bacon topping. My favorite kind of pizza from my favorite pizza place here :) So what if there was a 40min wait?
- I need 396.5 out of 462 possible points left in linguistics to make an A for the semester.
- I need to start grading so I’m not totally swamped tomorrow.
- I need to finish this 500 word post for online class
- I need to wash my hair by the time I go to bed tonight so that it has time to settle by Monday.
I take off my shirt, I show you.
I shaved the hair out under my arms.
I roll up my pants, I scraped off the hair
on my legs with a knife, getting white.
My hair is the color of chopped maples.
My eyes dark as beans cooked in the south.
(Coal fields in the moon on torn-up hills)
Skin polished as a Ming bowl
showing its blood cracks, its age, I have hundreds
of names for the snow, for this, all of them quiet.
In the night I come to you and it seems a shame
to waste my deepest shudders on a wall of a man.
You recognize strangers,
think you lived through destruction.
You can’t explain this night, my face, your memory.
You want to know what I know?
Your own hands are lying.
Taking Off My Clothes
I went to her reading at UCF tonight!
