Jose: Whatcha reading?
Me: [Hands him handout]
Jose: What's this? Chineez?
Jose: Are you Chineez?
Jose: Do you believe in Cheezus?
Jose: So.. what.. no god? No Cheezus?
Me: I guess not.
Jose: I, you know, I don't need no churches. I just think of him. Cheezus. You know what Jose means? Jose is the father of Cheezus. Jose and Mary. Parents. of Cheezus.
Me: [o jeebus.]
Oh well. We probably need all kinds of people.
I had a job interview today- for the UTLC. It was a group interview, where they split us into 3 groups (and afterwards, groups of 2 for a mock tutoring seesion). The first session had to do with offering prioritized advice to a student on academic probabtion.
Let me tangent- Do you guys remember Cloud? More specifically- his bigass sword? Remember in FF:VII, he had an attack move where he ran up and dished out some pwnage?
It was like that. Anyway, I actually legitimately think I won't get the job, since he inquired about my research hours I put into Mueller Lab. Of course, I said 9, when it's probably closer to 19.
Now for a brief list of annoyances:
- Media pleas for "understanding": E.g. Why all the Arab states hate us. Every once in a while, incompetence and savagery will be sidestepped, and someone will make a plea to "understand" where they're coming from, as if understanding will help you join (or sympathize) with their cause. Who cares? I'm not God, I don't need to see both sides and be a judge or something. It's probably bad journalism too, to try to cover both sides, and fail miserably. Stick to one side and do it well, there are plenty of idiots on the other side.
- Hypocrits: Through the semester, you'll meet them. Actually, you'll meet a lot of them. They'll make some comment about your life-style (e.g. Oh, it's nice that you do ____), but fail to follow the comment through in terms of implementation. They're usually mouth-breathing premeds. The UTLC interview was full of them. It's very easy to spot one- the conceited tone in the voice, the defensive stance, etc. Yet, all is destroyed when they say "Human Biology". Chutzpah! This one poses no threat.
- Night Showers: I knew I always hated them, I just could never put a finger on it.. until now. Taking a shower in the night, and then sleeping for 8 hours is like taking a trans-oceanic flight. Yes, the air is clean, but who feels clean after a 10 hour flight? No one. That's right- you're actually dirty when you wake up. And don't deny it, just take a shower in the morning, sick fuck. Actually a lot of people I know do this. It's pretty retarded.
- Relationships: They never work. Ever.
Many a times, I'll make the analogy of say.. cooking. People aren't done "cooking" yet. They still have a long way to go. Yet some people are already at the bottom of the pan, where the oil is hot, and they're burnt and roasted, even when the ones on top are still raw.
Everyday, it's some BS about this or that. Listen. You. I don't ever EVER want to hear about your relationship issues. I don't care. If you're having problems, then you were probably too stupid to see it coming. When you do have problems, because, inevitably, relationships are doomed to failure, think of what I just said. I'll repeat it. If you're having problems, then you were probably too stupid to see it coming.
On a sidenote, I love how some people want to know my grades, and have all these shifty ways of asking ("How did your semester go?", "Did you do ok?", "You did ok, right?"). A couple of days ago, some guy asked a similar question, and I said.. "Yeah.. It was ok.", then he made a feeble attempt at academic terrorism- "You should sleep more."
"What. Like you?" Rofl.
