Lost and Found

current state of mind: uninspired

Forget the ghosts that make you old before your time
It's too easy to get left behind
I know you’ve been kicked around
But tie up your thoughts and lay them down on me.
~ ‘The Starting Line’ by Keane

I have discovered an amazing website where I love to waste time.  It’s called UnderstandingUncertainty.org and it is a magical place.  If you visit the Coincidences section, you’ll get to read story after story from people who have experienced unusual coincidences.  Sure, some are pretty lame and those people have no idea what an unusual coincidence is – however, some of them are extremely remarkable.  I suggest you check it out!  For reals!

The past couple of days have been headache-laden.  Between migraine and sinus pressure, I have been a little cranky.  The only good outcome was that I did not attend Employment Law.  While I am disappointed I missed lecture, I am not disappointed that I missed 5 student presentations.  Those horrible excuses for “presentations” are slowly killing my soul.  I understand that I am coming across as judgmental right now – most likely because I am actually being judgmental.  I refuse to make any apologies.  A 15 minute presentation in a college level course should not consist of a student standing up there, with a print out of a legal case (that she likely hasn’t read) – no handouts, no clue what is in the case, and an obvious desire to be anywhere else.  Look, I don’t enjoy class presentations either; but I show up prepared.  I expect the same courtesy! 

Wow, I am cranky!  Perhaps I need another “pet peeves – venting” post to cleanse my soul.

In other news, I will soon be queen -- kind of.  Woot woot!

PERSONAL NOTE: I still love your face!  Yes, yours. 

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE:  You will always be a silly coincidence.
