I only become an extrovert in the rare case eels, the Beatles, or binder clips are being discussed. Otherwise, I will stay behind this bookshelf and continue to laugh for no reason. Yes, I am going insane. No, I don't need to go the counselor again. Yes, of course I have friends. Maybe we just won't discuss what kind of friends. 

  

... binder clips

Indeed. They serve a great many purposes, you know. I have a very large collection. It takes up an entire drawer of my desk because I can hardly bear to use them for anything, they're just too beautiful. 

  

oh.

Why are binder clips called binder clips? I have never, ever used one to clip a binder. Although I should probably try it to keep all my papers from falling out of my math binder's broken front pocket.

Pet peeve: when school supplies wear themselves out a few weeks before the school year ends and it's too late in the year to bother replacing them, but since it's the end in the year you have roughly 638473837473837363636 papers shoved in the front pocket, all of which go sliding out at any opportunity.

(and don't tell me to keep my papers in the binder part of my binder, that bit's even more crowded, I can barely close my binder a-hard-days-night-paul-7)

Even worse than that, though, is when teachers tell you to buy supplies you don't even end up using. You're stuck carrying it around for the entire year, and you can't even use it next year because it's so beat up from living in your backpack for the whole year.

Another related one is when your teachers give you papers and tell you to keep them because you'll need to turn them in later, and then they don't even want them, so you put in a ton of effort for the papers themselves (not to mention carrying them around, sometimes for months at a time) for nothing.

I sure do love chrome closing out of all of the tabs I have on my phone and then not responding when I frantically click undo 50 times.

And then the one day you decide to leave the papers at home because you're tired of carting them around... and that's the day they're due. ahdn_paul_01

David Bowie was utterly ugly. from unpopularopinion


I'm so sorry a-hard-days-night-john-6

I mean, there's a valid point there: David had some rather unusual features that bordered on unattractive, but they were arranged just so, and he carried himself with such a grace, that it actually enhanced his attractiveness -- it made him just even more eye-catching. I can just laugh it off anyway because he's so obviously drop dead gorgeous/handsome/etc.

Pet peeve: when I have to use past tense to refer to David Bowie because he's dead a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-paul-10 (and George Harrison ditto)

I was studying math and I had about 10 million loose papers strewn over the couch and then my cat came and walked all over them.

When I'm doing homework on the couch or floor, my dogs like to come up in-between me and my stuff and lay on top of my computer or notebook. It's cute, but also a bit annoying. I'm just glad Stella has outgrown her love of eating textbooks and paper, though.

I'm sorry how the hell did he get a student's number? I don't know about the land of the Orange president, but down under it's illegal for a teacher to text a student without their consent...
