UGH. I have to stop reading blogs today.
Just left a shrill comment on a blog without mentioning that I *GOT* what the person was saying, just thought she was being a prat.
One of the reasons I do not (yet) have a college degree is, believe it or not, having parents with advanced degrees and growing up in a college town, around many people who had (or when I was older, were striving for) master's degrees.
I am sick to death of academic liberals, and I can't imagine being one of them, or around hordes of them, for very long. I've been thinking this way since I was a kid, for a variety of reasons I won't go into.
The sadly funny other reason I have never finished is that I am not good at finding my own place in a crowd - that isn't true, I am good at finding SOME place in a crowd, but I just don't do "type" well. I'm not normal or average, I suck at straight consumer capitalist, I'm not crunchy, I'm not coloured enough for some, too coloured for others, I'm fat (again), I'm crazy, AND, I think "too much". I'm not a democrat nor will I ever belong to it or the socialist or green parties, I don't like sports, I can't watch TV (I can watch SHOWS, but the commercials kill me), plus I hate the idea of sororities and other clubs. I'm not a people person, and a big part of college is other people (hell, I hate group projects even when I adore the other people in my group).
Wow, that was a tangent. And now I'm running late to go do Halloween themed consumerism. I need some STUFF, and I aim to get it. The eight year old and I have a play date with a friend of bf's (and mine) and his son. Pumpkin carving may ensue.
