Studying is boring

Dear Motivation,

Please come back. I really need to study for this test. And the quiz. I can't do that without you!

Missing you desperately,

Grad students are poor, yo

Dear Wolfpack Club,

Thank you for telling me how I could get tickets to this weekend's game. Unfortunately, I just can't justify spending almost half of my yearly income on a ticket, even if it is for a super-fancy suite that seats 16. The only reason I'm a member is because you let me join for free as a new graduate.

With lots of love (but no money),

I just wish it was this easy...

Dear NSF,

I'm really smart, I care about the world and sharing scientific stuff, and I'm generally an all-around awesome person. Please fund me!

Walk a little faster, please...

Dear Slow People,

I understand that some days, walking fast is just not on the agenda; maybe you're tired, or you just took a test, or you've got a lot on your mind. But I got places to be! There's no need for you to walk super slow in front of me. Walking in the middle of the sidewalk, so I can't get around you, is completely not necessary. It's like the highway: Slower traffic keep right.

Running out of things mid-recipe is Not Smart

Dear Self,

Please check on amounts of ingredients before trying to make something. It was relatively harmless to run out of curry powder when making this recipe, but other times might not be so great. What would happen if you ran out of flour in the middle of making a cake? Or cheese in the middle of making macaroni and cheese? I'm just saying, it's helpful to think ahead. I know you usually do, but it's really not fun rushing to the grocery store while worrying about whether that thing you're making will turn out all right.

Try to stay on top of these things!



Another blog, just what the Internet needs

Dear Internet,

I'm here! Just wanted to let you know, so you could prepare yourself for the onslaught of awesomeness that my presence will bring. I know, another blog is exactly what the Internet needs. But sometimes you just need to tell the entire world your thoughts, y'know?

I promise to be nice to you; please don't be too mean to me!
