"Your success and happiness lies in you. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulties." -Helen Keller
Don’t talk about things you know nothing about.
It makes you look like an insensitive dickhead.
Thank you so much for the pointers! I’m a total procrastinator when it comes to homework. I always end up doing last night scrambles to get it done.
Grade twelve is fast approaching and I need help. This year is my last year to catch up and finish up. I have only one elective and 8 academic classes to complete.
Can you guys please give me study, organization, and general school tips??
|My dad:||Your sister's crazy. Who'd want a $200 purse?|
|My dad:||What is it with ladies purses, anyway?|
|Me:||(glancing at my purse) What do you mean?|
|My dad:||How did that start--I mean, why do women use them? Doesn't it get tiring carrying a bag around all the time?|
|Me:||(stands up and turns around) See those pockets?|
|My dad:||... Yes?|
|Me:||What can I fit in them?|
|Me:||How many things do you think I could fit in my pockets? Honestly. How many things?|
|My dad:||Doesn't look like you could fit much.|
|Me:||A pack of Orbit, some folded bills, and that's about it. That's why we use purses--because we can't carry our shit in our pockets like you do.|
|My dad:||But I can fit my wallet, my keys, and my cigarettes in my pockets!|
|Me:||And your jeans also fit the way they should.|
|My dad:||I'm almost afraid to ask, but what do you mean?|
|Me:||Your jeans are sized by, what, your inseam and waist, right?|
|My dad:||... Aren't yours?|
|Me:||I'm a size 3.|
|My dad:||3 what?|
|Me:||No, just a 3. A size 3.|
|My dad:||What does that mean?|
|Me:||I actually have no idea. I'm a size 3 in these jeans. In some other jeans, I'm a 5. I'm a 7 in my favorite pair of shorts.|
|My dad:||Wait, it's not the same?|
|Me:||Nope. A size 3 in one brand's jeans is completely different from a size 3 in another brand.|
|My dad:||That's fucking stupid! How do you shop for them?!|
|Me:||With great difficulty. This is why when you ask me what I did during the week and despite the fact I know you won't care I sometimes tell you I found a pair of jeans. Because finding a pair of jeans that fit and fit well is like finding the Holy Grail with your name encrusted in diamonds on it|
Kittens! I’m back! :)
