    I think my academic advisor is worried that I'm going to burn out before the end of this summer. In order to graduate next May, I have to:

    - Study abroad for 7 credits
    - Take a 2 credit class at the end of July
    - Mostly finish my major writing assignment from June-August so that I can add an independent study to my schedule for next spring for 2 credits
    - Hopefully get a 4 credit internship for next fall and spring
    - Take 15 credits in the fall
    - And depending on whether or not I get the internship, take anywhere from 14 (if I do) to 18 (if I don't)

    My 3L year is going to be a bitch.

    you're going to have to apply for that one-time extension to take more than 16 credits, aren't you

    shouldn't have taken that 10 credit semester

    There is a non-zero chance that I will have to apply for the extension next spring. The problem is that I was a part-time student last year and I could only take 9 and 8 credit hours in the fall and spring. I am full-time now and I want to graduate with the class that I started with, hence all of the extra classes this summer/next year.

    Also, I probably drank too much last night and I didn't do my homework before going out so now I have to do it this morning before school and I feel like shit. AWESOME

    so today during lunch (which was stupid hella crowded because on short days they decide to cram everyone into one lunch, close the salad and ala carte lines, and remove 1/4 of the available seating), a guy, tall, orange hair, lean and fairly muscular, came out of nowhere from the balcony, down the stairs, and through the cafeteria, playing a saxophone and wearing a tight pair of black slacks and suspenders. nothing else.

    it reminded me of zonugal

    Wow. I got kicked out of class today for the first time since... I think, ever.

    So I showed up 5 minutes late to class. Never before has any prof, this semester or last semester, made a stink about showing up late, as long as you just get in, shut up, don't make a big commotion.

    So I walk in, and clearly the professor is in the middle of an angry rant. Like he is red in the face already. He looks at me and is like "GET OUT. Come back during break". So I say "ok... when is break?" his reply, heavily sarcastic: "break."

    So I say, what am I paying you for. I'm here now, why don't I just sit down. All I want to do is sit down, shut up, and pay attention to class.

    His reply: "YOU CHOSE A BAD DAY TO START SOMETHING MY FRIEND"

    So I say, whatever, flip him the finger, and then I fuck off. Seriously I'm not standing for that shit. I can understand how showing up late is bad, and wrong, but that is not how you fucking handle things. Especially when there has been ZERO enforcement of showing up late. You dont go from full acceptance to zero tolerance just like that.

    Perhaps giving your professor the finger and telling him to fuck off may have been averted.

    I didn't tell him to fuck off, I meant that I fucked off. As in I left.

    Yeah the finger wasn't too smart. Whatever I'll deal with the consequences.

    He accuses me of disrupting the class.

    What is more disruptive, a student walking in 5 minutes late and sitting quietly in a chair that is literally 5 feet from the door, or the professor deciding to then blow up at this student in the middle of class.

    This guy is a fucking alcoholic, I'm betting the day after St. Patrick's Day isn't his best.

    Turn on your recorder and start an argument with you sounding as calm and polite as possible.

    Very unlikely I would have done that if I was caught off guard by the situation, but it would be fun :P

    I probably would have just went to get some coffee.

    Oh... what subject was this?

    Subject was "workplace legislation".

    The hilarious thing is this guy also teaches our "Communications" class. The guy is the worst communicator I've ever met. He gets really flustered easily.

    My communications teacher was from India and had a hard time grasping English.

    Although, it was a 'technical communications' class.

    I do hate when you apologize because you have to and don't mean it.

    I have to do one of those soon. I hate making nice.

    It reminds me of when I was in elementary school and someone forced me to be friends with another kid. I wasn't being mean to her but I didn't think I should be forced to make nice to her when I didn't like her.
