Encountered a street preacher today (for 'Street preacher' see 'nut handing out leaflets')
Got told I was going to hell and I was going to burn (because I said "no thank you, I'm an atheist")
Well I guess that's me told.
Watching sports is an emotional investment for me - and it never ends well! ...Double-overtime and I could feel the ulcer burgeoning inside of me - I'm Ripley from Alien ! Why, oh why couldn't it have been Ottawa?! What will the finals do to me?! ...I mean, I will have a straight-up anxiety attack if Nashville looses the Stanley Cup. Alternatively, I'll cry if they win - what is wrong with me?
Dumb question: I'm about to submit my application for a teaching assistant or research assistant position for my grad school and they obviously need my resume, it's the standard 1 page from my undergrad which only had my alma mater and not my first school before I transferred. With updating this one, do I take away my alma mater and add my grad school or add my grad school even though it will go onto two pages. I'm the first in my fam to go to grad school so I've been alone trying to figure it out and I don't think google is understanding my question!
