Officially Checked Out

April 16, 2008

I think the most difficult thing for me right now is to be in classes. I know that I’m moving in 4 weeks, and I have tons of other things to think about. I have to sell off all my stuff, ensure my moving plans are in tact and still drive my ass 3,000 miles to Boston.

I sound like an asshole every time I tell someone I conferred my degree last Spring. I’m just taking these classes because they are interesting, and they keep my mind fresh. The difficulty comes into play with grades: I’ve always been an “A” student. I tell myself I can settle for a “B,” but even when I get an “A-” I am extremely hard on myself.

Now, I’m in a position where I will be moving soon and cutting my classes short. Thusly, the grades don’t matter. I put this hypothesis to the test and only studied a good 5 minutes for my accounting quiz, and I’m pretty sure I still aced it. Maybe this checked out approach will tell me something about myself.

I’ll justify my scholastic apathy in the name of science. Move over Edison…


LA Quotes, Pt. 2: Adventures in Dodger Stadium

March 30, 2008

We sat out in Right Field for the Red Sox/ Dodgers game, surrounded by thousands of Dodgers fans (most looking to beat the shit out of us). Fortunately, we met a diehard Sox fan in the row in front of us. Here are a few gems from a true Red Sox Fan.

Red Sox Fan

Dodgers Fan: I’ve never seen so many fake Red Sox Fans.
True Boston Fan: I’ve never seen that much pubic hair on one face!

True Boston Fan: (After Jason Varitek hit a foul ball behind home plate) CHINESE HOME RUN!

Dodgers Fan: Man, free food at Dodgers Stadium. This shit is good.
True Boston Fan: Food’s alright, team still sucks!

Dumb Dodger Puta: The Red Sox suck!
True Boston Fan: Yeah, they sucked all the way to the World Series, honey!

Dodgers Fan: What the hell do Red Sox Fans do in the offseason?
True Boston Fan: Listen to a lot of Neil Diamond and watch the ’86 World Series while we circle jerk with our own tears. What the fuck do you think?
