Five on Friday #145

EINS - Random Shit

-Thank you for the overwhelming feedback from Wednesday's post.  Who has the best Gentle Readers ever?  THIS GIRL.

-You remember that one time I said was going to read through my Feedly?  Yeah, that didn't happen and now my oldest unread posts are over 25 days old and well.. It's just not looking like a bright future.

-Teh German said that he was worried about being constantly sunburned when we go to Australia and I suggested going to lay in the tanning bed to get a base tan (so we don't burn, which I do EVERY year without fail, sometimes self-inflicted, sometimes not, don't judge me) and he kinda seemed receptive, which was a surprise to me.  We'll see if it comes back up.  Also, there was a discussion recently about the transparency of my legs.  I'm so white I'm almost transparent.  I wish I was kidding.  Teh German's fears are well-founded.

-Google Keep is working for me better than Google Calendar tasks, mostly since tasks were not mobile friendly.  Keep is mobile friendly and it's not exactly what I wanted, but I'm making it work.  What this really means is that I'm back to keeping track of my life electronically again and I've completely stopped using my paper planner.  The only time this has been an issue is when I needed to see what order to read the Lord John Grey books in but Goodreads came to my rescue and all is well.  It will become an issue again when I need to make a list of runs I've completed/want to do, but we'll get there.

-I still haven't made lodging reservations for our honeymoon and I'm starting to feel the pressure.  What this really means is that my weekend to-do list is getting longer and longer.....


-Our Calc teacher lectured our class about making comments like "I hate everything about this" or "this is hard and I don't like it", even using a high-pitched (see: female pitched) mocking tone of voice (that I probably also would have used for me) and how it's bringing down the morale of the class and also how our class was getting too relaxed (see: Cadets aren't giving proper (aka expected) respect).  There are others in the class that make comments, but in a class that is 95% male, a high-pitched mocking voice is 1 of 3 individuals in the class and the other 2 females never say anything.  Even one of the other vet students commented on how the part of the chiding about making comments was obviously aimed at me (the mocking tone of voice probably made it more obvious, but the sustained eye contact with me for a prolonged period of time during his sermon wasn't missed either). 

Here's my thing.  If he has a problem with me, dressing me down in front of the entire class is unnecessary.  Period.  That applies for anyone with an issue with me.  Additionally, my comments were made after he had given us wrong information multiple times, which even the guy who has a 99.9 average was frustrated about.  I am saying things other people are thinking and I know that if I don't make my comments, I brood on them and then I can't focus.  This probably doesn't help others, but I don't think it goes so far as to lower morale.  And also, we're working on some difficult stuff in class and most everyone is struggling, so I'M NOT WRONG.  Nonetheless, he can suck my ladydick.

-The Cadets didn't smell when they came back from spring break.  I assume this is because they all went home and did their laundry.  It's been almost a month and the stank is back.  Ugh.

-It's a homework weekend because I've been putting things off and off and off because I've got end-of-the-semester-itis and I'm over all this fucking shit.  I think these feelings are amplified because I NEED a vacation and I'm going to be slammed during July with 2 classes every day and then I get a 2.5 week break of just work and then the fall semester starts.  I get even more exhausted just thinking about it.

-40 days until Honeymoon Adventures begin and it feels like so far and not so far from now.  It's complicated.

-I rarely watch YouTube videos, but I won't lie.  I spent 20 minutes at work this week watching "oddly satisfying" videos and YouTube and I felt high afterwards.  That feeling of satisfaction makes me feel high.  It's lovely.

-My new range will be delivered on Monday from 2-4 and I'm obnoxiously pumped about it.

This is a thing in my house.... 
When husband goes in the bathroom and you look for his phone to see how long he will take because:
1 he's in "your" bathroom
2 the house doesn't have more than 1 bathroom (duh)
3 he's notorious for taking a stupid long amount of time on the toilet.

-So this happened last night at Buffalo Wild Wings:
I notice Server approaching table with our food and start putting my hair up. She sets down fries and the other items aren't on the table before I start eating fries
Server: niiicee you were serious about that.
Me: yeah.. I'm always serious about food.
Server: yeah but you put your hair up and everything. That was awesome.
I closed mouth smile with a mouth full of fries.

-As a #TreatYoSelf for surviving my "freshman" year of college (again), I'm going to stop shaving my legs.
.
.
.
...because I'm getting laser hair removal done on those bitches.

So here's the real reason why.  I HATE shaving.  I always have.  I hate shaving so much that I would rather wear pants 100% of the time because my legs are shameful.  I also wear pants to bed almost 100% of the time because I hate the feel of my stubbly legs rubbing on themselves.  So, I'm done wiht that.  I bought a Groupon for legs and armpits and belly button (because I hate the 9 hairs that pop up there).  #TreatYoSelf
