I guess a more accurate title would be “unforeseen circumstances arose”…such as a night out at the pub with friends. needless to say I am not in the best state of mind to write a post right now, I’m merely here to express my frustration at attempting to put on pajamas. I promise tomorrow I will be in a better state of mind to follow through on my blog outline.
Good night to you all.
Well, the truth comes out.
I can’t count to three.
As a musician, this is worrisome.
Anyways, it would appear I forgot my 3rd tidbit for you all in yesterday’s post. I hereby post the official 3rd piece of information right here and now:
3.) Rufous Hummingbirds will always defend the same number of flowers in their territory regardless of their territory size. This is because after a certain territory size the energy wasted from flying around defending such a large area outwighs the benefits (in this case, energy gained from nectar).
I like hummingbirds. And I find it fascinating that they just know how many flowers to defend.
So there you are!
Unfortunately, as I just had my ecology exam, this no longer counts as studying…
Yep. Those people.
I’m sorry I need to get out of the habit of assuming people know exactly what I’m speaking about.
Those people who, in exams, don’t turn their phone off, or on vibrate. And it goes off. And it distracts ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE. And then everyone stares at the poor TA or proctor who then proceeds to go on a scavenger hunt though the forest of backpacks, purses, and coats to find the one that contains the idiot’s cellular device.
In all my time as a student here’s what’s happened:
1.) Either the phone stops ringing/singing before anyone can reach it (No fun).
2.) The phone does not cease the annoying noise and the bag is carried out of the room to prevent further distraction.
So here’s the thing…although it is pounded into our heads (for some of us, at least) that you are not allowed phones in exams, everyone brings there’s in. I bring mine to exams. BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS I TURN MINE OFF. OR AT LEAST TO SILENT. The best part of this is I have yet to see the proctor stop students writing and demand to know who’s phone it was, or even search through the bag for an ID. Or answer the phone (I’d do that, if it were up to me). My hair-wrenching exasperation is that the guilty students receives no repercussions for distracting the hundreds of other students taking the exam. And for being a complete moron. HOW HARD IS IT TO TURN IT TO SILENT. IT TAKES LESS THAN 5 SECONDS. YOU LAZY TURD.
So the lazy turds win. They keep distracting students with no repercussions for having no common sense and being disrespectful of others.
(I had an exam today and this surprisingly did not happen. However, I expect it to in the upcoming ones. And I may just throw a chopping board out the window if it does).
…I tend to rant (a lot) about stupid people (Of which I feel there’s a surplus in this world).
But I can be nice (Arguable, to some) so I’ll try my best to not come across as a raging madwoman. The tone in which one should read a phrase or comment on the internet is sometimes lost in translation…
Should you continue with this blog you will also be subject to deep soliloquies about music and life and how university makes me want to throw chopping boards out windows.
So…here it goes.
