I consider myself a casual viewer of Supernatural. I don’t really ship anyone or get involved in discussions about the plot or nitpick on details and plot holes. I don’t really get upset by episodes if they don’t go the way I had expected or if someone does something a little out of character.
Having said that, I need to have a little rant about last night’s episode.
We (or at least the majority of us) understand that Dean is a macho manly man that’s super duper sexy and no ladies can resist his charms, yadda yadda.
I feel like I have seen last night’s episode at least a dozen times before.
Dean meets attractive girl.
Dean seduces attractive girl.
Dean sexes the attractive girl.
Somewhere in the rest of the episode there are some monsters and shit.
It’s so boring!
You’d think that after eight seasons, Dean’s character may have evolved a little when it comes to his relationship with women. Like maybe not ogling every women he meets as something for him to stick his boner in.
And I understand that part of the problem may be that many of the Supernatural viewers can have a mental orgasm every time they see Jensen Ackles half naked or making out with someone in that oh so special way. So the writers may just be pandering to their needs.
Overall, it reduces Dean’s character to a sex-crazed douche, and reduces the show to something that focuses more on the attractiveness of the actors instead of the excitement of the plot.
It’s just been one of those days where I’ve spent basically the entire day finishing projects and papers only to realize that after all that work nothing has turned out right and it will be impossible to get full credit for any of it. I’m one specimen short for my collection, I cannot for the life of me find the exact location of “Deep Woods in the Hocking Hill region”, my project partner did not send me the copy of our pictures that I need for my identifications, and a paper that was due at noon that I had thought I had submitted two days ago didn’t actually submit to the dropbox. The last day I haven’t had class or work was August 20, and I’m just too tired and stressed out for this right now. I need something to start working in my favor. It feels like I’m working my ass off for nothing right now. All I’ve got right now is a cold that’s lasted the past two weeks, a stack of impending projects, and an insanely tight schedule. This is bullshit.
Some part of me really hopes that the majority of applicants to the Yogscast were named Tom.
I can’t even remember what Sips looks like without the green wig.
Can anyone talented at drawing or photoshop recreate Lewis’s sausage wonders?
I feel like this should happen.
It seems a bit unfair to me that because I can’t afford an iPad or iPhone or scanner, I can’t submit my field notes for grading. The best I can afford is to borrow my mother’s digital camera. And the pictures still weren’t clear enough. So I got a zero on my first assignment. And will continue to get zeros until I can find an alternative way to submit my assignments.
The other issue is time. If I had an extra hour and a half in my day, I could walk down to the library and use the scanner there. But I have classes from 8-5, and then work from 6:30-10.
Pretty much every day.
How the hell am I supposed to do this?
Well, it’s my first anxiety attack of the new school year, and classes haven’t even started yet!
It’s amazing how it just starts with one simple thing. I got an e-mail from one of my professors saying that we have a mandatory field trip this weekend, when I am already scheduled to work. So I start worrying about how I’ll have very few hours on this paycheck and if I’ll be allowed to get the day off work and if someone will be able to cover for me and if I can make the hours up somehow and if my managers are going to be pissed at me about something I have no control over.
And then it just leads to: how the hell am I going to make it through this year?
I’m taking five classes, working four hours a week for a scholarship, and working another twenty hours for my job. At the same time, I need to be filling out internship applications, because in my major it is nearly impossible to get a paid position directly out of college and even the internships don’t guarantee a job.
I’m just worried that I’ve made a mistake. That I chose the wrong major. Or that I should have continued on to get my Master’s degree. I’m worried that there isn’t much out there for someone majoring in Zoology.
All I want to do at this point is find a position at a zoo. The only issue is, they require you to work for six months to a year on what is usually an unpaid internship before they might offer you a position. I can’t afford this. Which means I might have to work two jobs for a while.
I love the job I’m at now. It’s great fun, and I really enjoy and take pride in what I do. But the pay is barely getting me by, and it’s a job I didn’t need to spend over $40,000 and many hours of stress and tears on a degree to get.
I just want my degree to actually matter. And I’m worried that it won’t get me anywhere.
So that’s where my mind is right now. Just typing this all down has calmed me down quite a bit, but if anyone actually reads this and has any advice, feel free to share.
Whoever edited the Minecraft - Phantom Protocol video did a fantastic job.
