Ooo! Good call!
Sounds like you went to the wrong school. A proper gentleman only attends institutions that surround him with peers of equal of superior caliber so as to push himself towards higher levels of achievement.
Hiding in the bathroom so I can post from my phone.
Never been accused of being either proper or a gentleman and as all true underachievers know smart people just make you look bad. Same reason why I have fat friends, they make me look slim.
Seriously though, I went to reasonably good schools for both under and postgrad and never had to do more than show up for a couple of lectures read pertinent parts of the texts and do an all-nighter before the final exam or term paper to get a B minimum.
I don’t have a High school diploma and did not take any serious maths classes before university (too busy having sex and smoking weed) but I still managed a B- in my only university calculus class. I only attended the first and last lectures and didn’t even know how to use a calculator at the start of the semester.
I am not trying to blow my own horn here and I am sure there are many people on this forum who are smarter than I am, went to better schools than I did and studied hard and got good grades in worthwhile courses. My point is that most university degrees are not meaningful beyond signifying that the holder of the degree is not a complete dunce.
I have been traveling for two months now. Fly back on Sunday and get to unpack all internet purchases as well as watch the game.
Lulz @ Metallica being emo from the same guy that said Morrissey isn't emo.
Man, was I rocking it driving home yesterday.
Guy who. And you ever heard the expression: "takes one to know one"? Yeah, this is one of those times.
Sitting my my cafe, drinking tons of espresso, reading a book, writing a book.
Very Rive Gauche patrick.
I was underbonussed due to some accounting glitches that worked out in my favor. Check being cut today. Not a ton of money, but maybe I'll go buy myself something nice.
aren't you the boss? can't you just bonus yourself what you want?
