Quote About Dandelions

"You fight dandelions all weekend, and late Monday afternoon there they are, pert as all get out, in full and gorgeous bloom, pretty as can be, thriving as only dandelions can in the face of adversity."

-- Hal Borland

Oh Hi There, College. (Part 1)

This was actually supposed to be in video form (I was going to be a famous vlogger, but alas College doesn't allow me to have the time to vlog when my room is clean and I've had a shower, both important parts of being A Successful Vlogger.)
Instead, I present you with:

Questions from the Public + Things I Thought Were Important
Part 1

  • Things College Kids Say:
    • "Have you studied for this test?" "Psh, no."
    • "Is it free?"
    • "Want to go to Wal-Mart?"
    • "Huddle House at 3am is the best!"
    • "Wait, there's homework for today?"
  • Things Professors Say:
    • "I go, "No!" and I show them my Chacos." ~ Dr. Bushhaus, referring to trying to convince people to save endangered bats.
    • "And then it peed on the side of the road and was like, "Screw you!" ~ Dr. Bushhaus, while flipping off the entire class to demonstrate a sassy Red Wolf's reaction to almost being hit by her car.
    • "Come near me and you die." ~ Dr. Smartt, threatening a wasp
    • "You need to color the butt-crack of the heart." Dr. Greenwood, referring to a fern gametophyte's archegonia.
    • "No, I'm Senora. I lost my youth getting my PhD." ~ Dra. Morin, in response to being called Senorita.
  • Things overheard in school:
    • "I was psych tested. Not for depression, but homicidal tendencies!" (Maybe not something to brag about in the cafeteria, dear.)
    • "Oh my gosh! I got to castrate a pig today!" (Perks of a redneck school, y'all.)
  • College Parties, what are they like?
    • Let's put it this way, I drove past a frat party the night after Halloween and watched a 6' tall Captain Underpants run across the street, away from the frat house.
  • Freshman 15 - is it real?
    • Yes, if you don't eat healthy and don't take care of yourself. But I actually have ended up losing weight due to stress, working out, eating healthy, and a schedule that has me walking several miles a day.
  • Funniest thing that's happened to me so far:
    • I was using my phone to write an email to a professor, inquiring about a travel-study trip to Ecuador. Instead of putting, "I am interested", my phone autocorrected the message to, "I am undressed". That could have been BAD, y'all.
  • Homeschoolers adjusting to "real school"
    • Adjusting? I'm too busy with classes and my social life to worry about adjusting.
