As of this Sunday evening, UNCG is on a delayed opening for Monday, 2/1/10 until noon. However, I believe the roads are still impassable on many secondary roads in Greensboro, and it is not worth the risk for commuting students to navigate possibly treacherous roads. Furthermore, my street is all ice, the sidewalks are not cleaned, and my 75 foot sloped driveway is a sheet of ice—I can’t get out. Therefore, I am canceling my classes for Monday, 2/1/10.
"New York City has the worst drivers in the world"
You know, I never once witnessed a car accident while I was there. As far as I can tell, it’s organized chaos. It makes no sense to someone who’s never driven in NYC. It’s terrifying. When my dad and I drove into the city many years ago, we were honked at within seconds of exiting the tunnel. But that’s because we were the bad drivers.
The honking and swearing is part of the communication between the drivers, an aid to turn signals and brake lights. In Cleveland, people will lay on their horn before they run a red light. In North Carolina, people will go 79 mph because they’ll have their license revoked at 80. I’m sure in Maryland, people do all sorts of dumb things, but it doesn’t seem dumb to me because that’s what I grew up with.
Everywhere has the worst drivers in the world, just different types of awful.
“I hope to hell that when I do die somebody has the sense to just dump me in the river or something. Anything except sticking me in a goddam cemetary. People coming and putting a bunch of flowers on your stomach on Sunday, and all that crap. Who wants flowers when you’re dead? Nobody.”—
Hey you! Creative kid! Kid who thinks they’re not creative! Kid who is secretly creative but doesn’t want anyone to know about it!
There is this project happening, and it’s quite open-ended and looks fun and collaborative-y so if you’re like me and yearn to collaborate but have no one to collaborate with on a regular basis, perhaps this is the thing! I’m doing it. So you should too. Here is an incomplete list of people who should be involved.
“A legend of the art department
Once took out an entire regiment of canvases with only her bare hands
There was paint everywhere
When the dust settled and the primer dried, not a brush stood among the ruins”—Kurt, from The Legend of Caroline.
Directions: In a big-ass pot mix: 2 cups sugar 1/2 Cup milk 1 stick butter 5 Tablespoons cocoa 1/2 Cup peanut butter
Mix it all up and bring to a boil for 1 minute.
Remove from heat. Then add: 1 teaspoon vanilla 3 cups Quaker Quick Oats (make sure you use Quick Oats or you’ll screw everything up, trust me) With a wooden spoon, beat the mixture until stiff. It’ll take a while. Using a regular-sized soup spoon, drop cookie-sized plops onto wax paper.
according to our professor, “authoritative rumor” has it that RIT is in fact going to the semester system, starting in 2013.
sucks to be them, i’ll be out of here. it’s a shame to see a school take something that i considered to be one of its greatest strengths and toss it out the door without much listening to the opinions of the students.
That is a shame. I went to RIT specifically for the quarter system. When students complain about the quarter system, what they’re usually complaining about is the break schedule (2 weeks for Thanksgiving, two weeks for winter, 1 week for spring break), not the fact that it’s 10 weeks long (though sometimes that sucks too).
