Being in my last semester of college, I realize that I have acquired many pet peeves in regards to my fellow students.

Lateness regarding class. I understand that students can sometimes be late to class, but I don't understand why a person could be 15 minutes late to class EVERY DAY!!! What do you have that is so important that you have the need to interrupt class after we're just getting started. If you're apologetic about it, I may cut you some slack... but don't count on it.

"Kiss Goodbye"s. You will be seeing a person in four hours. No need to kiss them six times, then hug them, then kiss them again, then hold their hands for while, then leave, then say, "I'll see you at lunch." No need. Be cool. Just be cool. A peck should suffice.

Wrong side of the sidewalk walkers. Get out of my way. I'm going to class. Why are you making me walk in the grass? There's no need to walk 4 people across. Next time someone does this, I might have to shoulder them.

I only have one class today. It starts at 6:30 tonight. That means that even if I slept until noon, I would still have six and a half hours to waste until I have to leave for class. Four and one-quarter of those hours would be all by my lonesome. Needless to say...


It's only Wednesday of the second week of classes. I don't have classes at all on Monday or Friday. At least I work all day Monday.

So the way I see it, I'm going to be sitting around a lot this semester. So I must make a list of things to occupy my three empty days of the school week for the next 14 1/2 weeks.

  • knit more
  • blog more
  • graduation application
  • sign up for yoga class
  • attend yoga class
  • finish resume
  • apply for/get a job
  • find a place to live
  • contemplate things like why California has chosen to rival Wisconsin in the cheese business.
