what not to do after you break up – part 1

i’m sure there are a lot of things, but just go with me on this one.

i’d say telling your lab-mate in grad school that you’ve known for like 2 weeks, might be one of the things you probably shouldn’t do.

then again, sometimes it helps to vent. i get it.

bet you didn’t see that one coming. yeah, me neither.

probably not the best move, but what the hell, can’t hurt right? we’ll see about that. stay tuned for part 2.

it’s for a great reason, i swear…

there are a lot of ways to hurt your wrist, you know…

and requesting an ergonomic keyboard isn’t totally crazy, right?

unless you’re a grad student… because we all know grad students are just slaves, right?

so it’s totally valid to tell your prof you hurt your wrist, right? you just might not want to mention why.

what voice of reason

actually that should probably be the tag line of my life. i can’t tell you the number of times a conversation has started like this:

but of course one of my friends in grad school told me this would be a great idea so why listen to the voice of reason. that would be silly.

that and it’s really hard to say no to a beautiful bike…

didn’t you know talking is overrated?

at least i’ve noticed this periodically when i’m on the phone with my best friend.

it seems there are just some people with whom you can be on the phone and it’s almost like being in the room with them. except from the comfort of your own home… or wherever you are.

and sometimes it’s just knowing that you can mutter to your best friend, no matter how weird it might seem to “normal people” even though you’re not actually saying anything real.

it’s always a joy to find out when you are hard at work on something…

or you know, checking facebook, like ya do. that EVERYONE else is already done, while you still have so much left to do.

sometimes, it just makes you want to punch ’em in the face.

just a lil’.
