Embarrassing moment of the day:
As I was serving a bottle of Nigori to the customer, I was shaking it going, “Yeah you gotta shake it like a polaroid… Sorry, that was lame”
Okay I know you all have already heard a mouthful from me in person (or online) about how stressful my job is. But really, I am mostly upset with the management, NOT the customers (most of them are really cool people).
This will be long, so:
So. My online English writing class has this debate assignment, and my debate team is arguing that homework should be required. Some dude in the class sent me a message saying:
“you guys are off to a great start o the debates. I felt like after the intro and the pt 1 it becomes more underdeveloped. is it because not enough time? or is it the work of different people resulted that? But overall it is great!”
He’s working on another debate topic, “Should gay marriage be legalized in all states?”
Okay. So ordinarily I wouldn’t be bothered by someone saying the opening statement (which was indeed written entirely by myself) was “underdeveloped,” because I partly agree (I definitely could have done better on them). HOWEVER, we got to choose our own debate topics and I was just really ticked off that so many people (including him, apparently) chose to debate about gay marriage.
Plus, he was on the side against legalizing gay marriage. I don’t give a damn what his actual opinion is on the matter. I’m just extremely disappointed that gay marriage even made it to the debate topic list.
So this is what I wrote back:
Thank you for your kind words. I wrote the entire opening statement, but everyone pitched in. Sorry it seems underdeveloped in the latter points.
I would say something about your debate but I haven’t checked it out yet because I just personally believe that the topic of “gay marriage” is such a tired out debate. I feel the statement “Gay marriage should be legal” is akin to saying “Child abuse is bad” (the example Lydia said would be a bad choice for a debate topic) because it is associated with the most basic of human rights.
However, my opinion doesn’t matter here! Best of luck to you and your team. May the odds be ever in your favor.”
College update, “read more” because I know some people aren’t interested:
Looking at all these collegeconfidential posts about people who got into McCombs this year
I feel like such a dud
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE:
I got into UT Austin’s College of Natural Sciences for Computer Science…
I tell my mom as she comes home that I’m making pasta for dinner, and she says, “내껏도 있나? (Is there mine too?)”
And I say, “아니 나만 먹을라고. 엄마는 그냥 떡국 먹어라. (No it’s just for me. You can make your own rice cake soup.)”
