Spring 2008 - Professor Report Card

Time to rate my professors again!

There are 5 categories: Workload (Too much, too little, just enough?), Personality (dull or lively?), Helpfulness, Clarity, and Teaching strategy.

The point-scale is as follows:
























And then the sum of all 5 categories are placed in this criteria:

+10 to +6 = Good (A)
+5 to +1 = Fine (or Fair) (B)
0 = Average (C)
-1 to -5 = Poor (D)
-6 to -10 = Bad (F)

Let's begin.

Amor animi arbitrio sumitur, non ponitur

If anybody tells you that their relationship is flawless, they're either lying or they have yet to see what a real relationship is like.

Even the smoothest of relationships have bumps. Some start on the right foot, but little things like mistrust, inattentiveness, and lack of communication lead to future problems down the road. Some start completely upside down, then wind up going on and off until a fuse blows out.

Tonight, I make a suggestion to all the current couples and single men and women as well: Never underestimate the power of love. I know it sounds cheesy, but you'd be surprised what someone will do when their emotional state is on the line.

6 Rules For My Future Children Regarding Sex (Redux)

Poster: Don't be a dick 6 Rules For My Future Children Regarding Sex

1. No sex, at all, until you reach the age of sexual consent in the state we reside in. Outercourse is fine if you feel you are ready for it.

2a. For any sons: CONDOMS MANDATORY. (I will explain this in a future entry) No "ifs" or "buts". If she's on the pill, use a condom anyway. There is such a thing as "forgetting", believe me.

2b. For any daughters: CONDOMS MANDATORY. Pill Optional (along with a condom). If he claims that sex is crap with a condom, then tell him to get one or get a new girlfriend.

3. Using the pullout method is idiotic. See #2a or 2b.

4. Failure to follow these rules will likely result in pregnancy. Don't expect me to pay your child support.

5. These rules may change at any time to accommodate the mother's opinion on the subject.

6. Once you're married or the age of 21, these rules no longer apply. Knock yourselves out (or up in the case*).

*If you're not married at 21, read the second part of rule #4.

Smokin'!

Recently I've been trying to formulate my opinion differently. Instead of having one solid opinion, I now separate my opinions between personal and political. That is, my opinion on one issue will now come in two flavors: personal and political.

With that out of way I present my dual opinion on recreational drug usage:

Personal

I have always been taught that using drugs like marijuana and cocaine was always a bad choice. When it comes to personal choice, I still hold that same ideology. I know people who have fallen victim to drugs, and because of that I will not use nor will I ever condone use. Basically, I'm anti-drug.


Political

If I take a step back and look at the world as a whole I feel that everybody has a choice to do what they want to do. They can go ahead and use drugs. If they ruin their life that's their fault and not mine. Want my political opinion in song? Well, it would sound something like this:

Winner / A Little Experiment

GTA IVOn Monday, I received an e-mail from Polls Boutique and I found out that I won a copy of Grand Theft Auto 4. One day I saw that they were holding a contest and all you had to. This is surprising to me because I never won anything in a contest before. Unfortunately for me, I don't have an Xbox 360, so I'm going to have to sell my prize. But because I won I figured I should mention Polls Boutique. No, this is not a ploy for you to find out about this website I just feel obligated to tell you.

In a nutshell PollsBoutique.Com is a website where you can make your own polls for other people to vote on. While it seems reasonable that that would become boring after awhile it's pretty addicting.


Now before I forget, I want to do a little experiment at the bottom of this page. Google scans the Internet so I'm going to make the most original statement on the Internet.

"This is the most original statement on the Internet. If you put it in quotation marks, you'll find that this will be the only result that Google will show. If not, then someone took my idea."
