Well Ladies, my last tit bit was rather … angry and hormonal, today I stand taller than I have previously done in the past. Firstly I quit that horrid job, gained a Qualification in Computerised Financial Accounting and Scored an awesome Job as a Business Development officer for a local Social…
thank you for this :)
i have to poop
you know how i can tell
because my entire lower half feels like it’s being sawed off with a blunt saw
this is true
It’s not exactly the feeling of betrayal. It’s close. It skirts and dances around it, but it doesn’t quite feel like betrayal. It feels - strange. As if it’s happening to someone else. Or perhaps it just feels like you and your body become two different people for a time. It starts as something…
people can fathom that we *are* in pain.
but not the gravity of actually having it with you constantly.
you are sealed in your own personalised pain bubble with no room left.
|In high school they told us:||There will be no grades in a class except the midterm and the final, so you have to study hard because failing one test means you fail the class.|
|Once I was in college a professor said:||Hey, you guys are working really hard on your third paper, so I'm just going to cancel the final and give everyone a hundred on it.|
|In high school they told us:||In college, class always begins exactly at the scheduled start time. If your class is at 9 AM and you get there at 9:01, the doors will be locked and you'll be out of luck, especially if it's the day of the midterm or final, because then you get a zero.|
|Once I was in college a professor said:||Does anyone mind if I start class at 3:35 instead of 3:30? These elevators are really slow and I want to have time for a cigarette before I teach for 90 minutes.|
|In high school they told us:||Every class you miss drops you a full letter grade in college courses.|
|Once I was in college almost every professor said:||You can miss three classes without a penalty, and a few more if you have a Doctor's note. Sorry to be a hardass, but you automatically fail if you miss more than ten days of class.|
|In high school they told us:||If you do have papers, your professors just lecture and put the assignments on the syllabus. You're completely responsible for remembering the deadlines, they won't remind you. All your professors will do is lecture and the rest is up to you.|
|Once I was in college a professor said:||Okay, so your next paper is in two weeks! I'll keep reminding you in the interim, but I just want to make sure you have enough time to do it! Let's run through the structure I want to see real quick, and if you have any questions, feel free to email me or come to my office hours!|
|In high school they told us:||You have to use MLA formatting and if you make any mistakes in your citations, it'll be considered plagiarism. You'll be expelled and probably sued.|
|Once I was in college almost every professor said:||Please do not use MLA, it is awful, we use either APA or Chicago here because we are not 14 years old.|
