Tagged this is the kind of English major I am


I was so excited about there not being any major school shootings so far this school year, and then Omaha erupted into gun violence and threats of gun violence yesterday and I lost my faith in humanity a little bit.

It’s kind of sad when one of your students shrugs and tells you that the school was on a shooter lockdown for part of the day like it’s no big deal.

Fun fact: when the doctor tells you to drink a bunch of water and not pee, the only thing you can think about is how bad you have to pee.

I told myself I wouldn’t buy a Freddy Kruger dress. I would buy the sweater. Hot Topic has them and I have some Hot Cash that I need to use.

But the smallest the sweater comes is a mens’ large.

So I’m buying the dress.

I want fic set in the AU where Aidan goes to watch Bishop die, and realizes that there are little bits of Bishop floating around and he tries to catch one on his tongue and it’s cute.

Or something.

Becoming a Being Human fan was weird for me. Like, one week I’m sitting down in front of the TV all like, “a vampire and a ghost and a werewolf living together! Awesome!” and four months later I’m crying in the corner knitting a sweater and mumbling about sharks.


*heavy sigh* I still really miss Bishop.

Is that normal?

I went to the mall today for some retail therapy (I’ve been having a really crappy couple of weeks).

I got this awesome Castiel poster at Hot Topic (now I have Sam, Dean, and Cas to make my room a Team Free Will palace):

Then I went to Forever 21 and got this totally awesome jacket that is a style I’ve wanted for forever but have never been able to afford ($50+ at Hot Topic, H&M, and DEB, but less than $30 at Forever 21).

Then I went to Claire’s and bought a necklace that proves James Bishop is my spirit animal:

Seriously, it kills me when I see people hold scientists up as pinnacles of logic and reason.

Because one time the professor I was interning for got punched in the face by another professor, because mine got the funding, and told the other professor his theory was stupid.

This same professor told me to throw rocks to scare the “stupid fucking crabs” into moving so we could count them properly.


thank you

this is one of the best comments this post has recieved

I have witnessed:

Two professors hiding around a corner and snickering, “Shhh, here she comes!” While a female professor approached and, when she finally found them, she proceeded to scream while pointing from one to the other, “You! I called your office but you weren’t there! So I tried to call YOUR office to figure out where HE was but YOU weren’t there!”

Two grad students standing outside a closed and locked door yelling, “Come out of the damn office. You haven’t left for days. If you didn’t have a couch in there I’d be concerned as to where you were sleeping!”

A religious studies professor apologizing for being late to class because, “security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit”

Watched a professor snort the results of my experiment to determine if I had the right final compound.

Two archeology professors toss priceless fossilized teeth back and forth in an attempt to figure out who is smarter by “guessing the type of tooth and species of animal before it lands”

Multiple fully degreed individuals throw dry ice at one another in an attempt to be first to use the lab/get that piece of equipment/or change the iPod song.

A genetics professor build furniture out of stacks of paper and planks of wood because she is that far behind in grading papers/responding. One of the impromptu furniture pieces housed a fish tank.

I could go on but I think that covers the larger portion of the insanity…

Every time it comes around on my dash, it gets better.

I have had a professor buy a huge fuckoff bottle of rum during fieldwork in Costa Rica and let the undergrads get wasted because “you’re not underage in Costa Rica and we’ll be up all night with the bats anyway!”

- Same professor hung a bat from her headlamp and wore it as a decoration for an entire night. 

- A whole swarm of older women - and these are women with PhDs and world-renown bat experts, the bigwigs - all, to a woman, go to the formal charity dinner at an international research symposium in Toronto in late October dressed in skimpy Batgirl costumes. Because Halloween was that weekend, you see.

- At a different conference, a professor get blackout drunk and pass out on the side of the road. 

- “Yeah, we have to say we did it properly for the grant but to be really honest, Miracle-gro works better.”

- Teaching lab: we had liquid nitrogen for a demo, and after class the professor, the other TA, and I spent a good two hours freezing and breaking things in it. 

a chemistry class begins with 30 students nine months later just six of us left sitting on tables dipping paper into contaminated chemicals to see what happens when we burn it teacher making idle suggestions while he marks our work

"go to the fume hood thing, yeah now put some potassium in chlorine" can i burn the results sir? "fuck it sure whatever its tainted anyway"

The prof I’m working for just asked me if I knew how to pick a lock, and when I responded “yes” she replied, “see, this is why I hire the former delinquents instead of the suck-ups. You’re actually useful.”

I then let her into her office.

The professor in my Old Testament class was lecturing about the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. In trying to prove to us that it wasn’t about homosexuality like most people think it is, he told us that the (male) angels were really just extensions of God, and the whole holy fire thing only happened because - and I quote - “they tried to gang rape God!” He shouted this. On a fully occupied floor of classrooms. With the door wide open.

there was a time when writers were kind


when their screenplays were good


and their plots inviting


There was a time when trust was blind


And the world was a song


And the song was exciting


There was a time


Then it all






Holy shit look at the notes on this… Is it me or is the fandom trying to say something

Yes!!! All of this!!!
