you google peppermint tea, and you get that picture. I probably shoulda used one without the ‘for promotional use only’ tag…but I think I like it more that way
it’s a no caps kinda day
i’ve got two papers, a take home exam and a regular ol’ final exam within the next two weeks.
yesterday was a very demanding day and i think i stressed so terribly that i’ve probably slept about a whole half day since…not to mention eat 2/3rds of the house.
and now i’ve got a headache and i feel nauseous.
this peppermint tea in front of me is saving my life.
i’m trying so hard to work but i keep flitting from one assingment to another so that the total work i’ve managed to get done equals bupkis.
i just watched arrested development for the first time and a/ it’s totally funny and b/ the david cross character (who is hillarious, btw) is an ex-psycholinguist from MIT that is super weird and flakey and I thought, ‘jesus…when it comes to making fun of people, are linguists up for grabs, too?’
two of my fave profs: one’s a psycholinguist and the other is straight outta MIT, yo.
i went to go see the grad advisor for our department the other day. i can’t stop going over the potential stupid things i said during our meeting. i fixate on my stupidity and akwardness, like, lots…i’m gonna make someone a great grad student one day. when i went to visit him, i guess i expected (don’t know why) him to give me a run down of all the programs i could get into with a BA in linguistics, but all we talked about were MAs in linguistics. easy now. i gots to do more research but i know i would love to do a masters in linguistics.
that’s gonna get me nowhere
besides, it’s been so long. he asked what discipline i’d like to get involved in…uh. dunno. syntax is nice. i like phonetics.
