We're Just Ordinary People
We Don't Know Which Way to Go
Odd...

So I'm wondering, why is it that we as students (I'm presuming other people do this too)often say "thank you" to a Professor as we are turning in a completed exam? I find that I always seem to do it after midterms or finals and lately I've noticed a bunch of other people in my classes saying "thank you" when they handed in exams also. When you stop to think about it, it's kind of an odd thing to thank them for, in my opinion anyways. Are we thanking them for testing our knowledge? For being so kind as to grant us the privilege of doing more work? I mean really... it's odd. Thanking them for teaching the course is perfectly logical to me, but thanking them for giving you a 10 page take home midterm? Honestly now?

On a different note, (this is not going to matter to anyone but that is what live journals are for right?) for a while I was convinced that in one of Justin's songs, "Chop Me Up" if you must know, he was saying "relax, take your clothes off and let me get your name" which I thought was hilarious only because it was him saying it. If anyone else had said such a thing it would not have been adorable particularly because the name came after the clothes coming off, but somehow Justin made demeaning seem kind of funny because that is really not a statement he can pull off with any sort of legitimacy whatsoever and he knows it. Well anyways, I recently realized that in fact he is not saying "take your clothes off" but rather "take your coat off" which makes a lot more sense and is a lot less man-whorey of him and yet part of me was kind of disappointed. Explain that one?

I feel like lately I have been focusing way too much energy on things that maybe I shouldn't be focusing on (no, not you Stephen Colbert). I have been questioning myself like crazy and thinking way too much about my own little world its problems which makes me feel unhappy and terribly selfish to boot.

Yeah, that's all me.

Aw, don't make yourself feel guilty. :( If you want to rant about anything just be like, "HILARY I'm ranting now, harken" and I'll harken. *hugs* Sorry I've been so distracted lately. You are the least selfish person I can think of.

The Justin thing made me lol. Oh Justin. I like it when he acts serious about his musical career because I can't think of him without thinking of NSync and I'm just like, "Does he think people will forget about those adorable dance moves?"

I thank my boss at work when she gives me projects to do. I'm definitely not thankful for the chance to make a five page spreadsheet fit on one page, but I'm like, "THANKS!!!" Explain that one.

I owe you big time; there was a hole in me the size of the truth and you exposed me to Stephen who rammed the truth I needed in there. Now I am complete! And additionally, you listen plenty to my rantings and always have insiteful things to say and I appreciate it.
Justy-pie is amazing in part because he knows that people won't forget about those adorable little dance moves or the glow in the dark costumes they wore once upon a wonderful time and yet he keeps trying. Some would call him crazy, I feel it adds to his immense charm.

This made me laugh so hard. You kill.

Justin's charm is immense beyond words. Today in the Jesuit house I was waiting for Rynes and they were playing sexy back on the speakers and I thought, He has such a diverse demographic.
