Welcome back, my loyal readers. I thank you all for joining us tonight. I would not be here where I am today if not for you, the readers.
Actually, I take that back; I would probably still be here. But welcome back, regardless.
I took my last exam today and drove home. Sadness. How I can possibly survive not being at Rhodes, I wonder?
Oh Rhodes, my great College,
How I adore thee.
You teach me so wonderfully well.
Tests hold me not hostage;
They make me so free.
At Rhodes I will always feel swell.
Anyway, once all five of my exams were over, I realized that I had actually learned quite a bit this semester. I will now briefly summarize some of the most important lessons:
- Techno music is pretty weird to dance to.
- In Germany, they don’t curve test grades. If you get a professor from Germany, watch out.
- North Korea sucks. That is my professional opinion.
- You should not let your neighbor’s dog eat your death by chocolate.
- Professor Romano is a fearsome paintball warrior (as are all international studies scholars — especially compared to lame subjects like Bio).
- When under attack, you should defang the snake.
- Iran sucks. Majorly.
- Y – C – G = S = I + NX
- When you are at a party, you should not tell a girl wearing a sequins dress that she “feels interesting.”
- Myspace > Facebook
Anyway, that’s all the most important stuff I’ve learned this semester. Now Christmas break is here so it’s time to party!
By the way, I saw Blood Diamond over the weekend. It’s good. Leonardo rocks my socks.
“I want to see that movie, but in my case Leonardo is the only deterrent.”
