Interesting side-effect of prozac
I haven’t even logged into tumblr in two months. Or maybe it’s student teaching is eating my brains? Also my students keep asking me about tumblr. Quiet, you. I’m still more culturally relevant than you are. Fortunately my anxiety is manageable, at least? Ah whatever. I think I’ll be throwing in the towel soon with this blog.
HOLY SHIT. In the midst of my over-dramatic emotional angst (which reached NEW HEIGHTS today, people! FUCK!)… I completely missed my first blogoversary! This is a big deal. After 1 year, I have had some amazing support—and some very faithful followers who have stuck through even though I tend to go on hiatus once every few months. News from the battlefront: As you may have read...
Any of my followers ever taken prozac?
Please tell me about your experiences. How long did it take before you felt anything? Did it help? What did it do? Either answer here or submit it. I really want your input. I just started a couple days ago and I’m nervous.
So where the fuck have I been? (Very personal--you...
That’s a good question. I wish I knew the answer myself. As our region slowly recovered from Sandy, and finals quickly set in, I came to realize that the depression I talked about here was only just beginning when I brought it up in September. Sigh.[[MORE]] The last few weeks, I have been in and out of lucidity within the sea of my own emotions. I’m finding more and more that the...
Fucking spare me, residents.
Don’t complain to me about your precious vacation time while I work Thanksgiving Break, haven’t been home in six months, will only get to go home for about a week, and will be broke for the foreseeable future because this job limits the amount of loans I can take out. Fucking spare me. Seriously.
Ain't No Party Like a Thanksgiving Duty Party
Because Thanksgiving Duty FUCKING SUCKS. =) ♥
So if you can't tell
Posts are kind of sporadic. Life is kind of hectic as fuck because of Sandy. If you haven’t been reading the news, many people are without homes, cars, and power. It’s been a week, but it’s still messed up as hell in the entire region, which I’m actually revealing on tumblr. That’s how you know it’s bad. I have been very, VERY lucky, and so has most of my...

Weekend Duty Overheard...Again
Resident 1: Actually, I have to pee.
Resident 2: You don't want to get a UTI.
Resident 1: Always pee after sex.
Resident 2: That's what I've heard.
Resident: So how many zombies are there now?
Resident: We've got a month to get it together.
Resident: Yep. *Door slamming* (someone throwing skateboard outside)
Resident: I lose. I'll just... I'll see you later.
Resident: Oh man, you stole my homework.
Resident 1: Look at you, oh man you're so cool.
Resident 2: That's Tom. You know, that was pretty good for my first time.
Resident: Ah! That was easy.
Resident: Eat a yogurt!
Resident: Oh, you're soo tall.
Sure-fire way to make sure no one comes to your...
randomqueries: Comic Sans If you use comic sans on your flyer I will go out of my way to make sure that no one comes to your program. Anyone on my staff who may come across this: YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. BUT I SHOULDN’T HAVE TO WARN YOU.
Sandy hit us BAD.
Maybe I’m revealing too much information about my location…but whatever. I can only be on for a little bit while we still have generator power. I’m PRAYING that things get back to normal soon. Fortunately, everyone on campus is safe, and I think the cabin fever is starting to wear off a bit… I sincerely hope that all of you and your families are safe, and I can only assume that those of you...
My professors WOULD give me homework.
Unlike my friends who get to curl up with a book, I actually have WORK to do. …Like update tumblr.
Anonymous asked: I asked this before, but you never responded so i'm just gonna assume you didnt get it haha. anyway, this is more of "i want to hear your thoughts" as opposed to "give me answers." So, ANYWAY, I'm a freshman this year. Somewhere a couple weeks in I thought "wow, being an RA looks cool." but i'm kinda too embarassed to tell people because i feel as...
to which I don’t know the answer**** Sorry. We must not lose our grammar skills in these trying times.
So fucking overwhelmed
Remind me to never be on duty during a hurricane again. I’m about to snap at the next person that asks me another question I don’t know the answer to.
I would be lying if I said this Hurricane wasn't...
To my fellow RAs on the East Coast, best of luck preparing for Sandy’s inevitable arrival. This is going to be one hell of an interview topic once we’re on the other side of this thing, right? ♥♥ All the best in luck and love.
felixfirecrotchwalken asked: hey, on the application, is there usually a limit to how much you can say about your reasons for being an RA? It probably varies between schools, but I'm just wonderin...I started to write my reasons for wanting to be an RA, and I'm not even done and its starting to turn into an essay...(applications dont even come out until winter orz)
To the questions I've just received:
I got them and I will answer them! Busy busy week. I’ve started writing them like five times then couldn’t finish them because tumblr won’t let me save drafts of asks =( I also had the best program of my career tonight! WOOOO! And now I have to be up at the crack of dawn for Education Fieldwork…. So in the meantime, please enjoy this picture that was largely responsible...

In half a semester
I have been a part of more alcohol incidents than my last two years combined. Ever get the feeling that the show was renewed for one-season-too-many?
My (AWESOME) co-worker from my normal job
just called my bromance with my co-RA his OTP. I…I was stunned. And feels.
It warms my heart to hear the debates blaring from...
Too bad the Res Halls are already overheated…
Fire Alarm went off this morning. My thought...
Eh? What’s going on? Oh…it’s a fire alarm. Then I remember I’m the RA Fuck. Better put on pants, right? So I go out in the hall and make sure rezzies be up. Yeah that’s right rezzies…get yoselves up. Then I’m just like…wait…this means I get to see my staff! So I come outside like: and my staff is like: And I’m...
When your co-RA goes on a round
and five minutes later you get a call on your cell phone. “Hey can you come to room blah blah blah please?”
Overheard in a suite
Male resident: Yeah, our bathroom's getting really gross right now.
Female resident: Ew.
Male guest: Wait...I have to see this...oh...wow...yeah...there's a hair on the toilet seat. And it's definitely curly.
Female resident: But none of you guys have curly hair...?

Can we just talk about my FUCKING Warm Body Counts...
This is a long one. A little longer than a second. VAMANOS! This is my third…maybe fifth if we do them in the spring, idr…time doing this shit. I appreciate and respect this holy document. Of course. It not only makes sure nobody’s rotting in their beds, it also forces us to meet our residents face-to-face. Now, my overarching emotions each year toward this position have been...
Never hope that your first big duty night is a quiet one, because if it is,...– A very wise mentor of mine.
This nine-year-old printer really did a number on my flyers. Maybe I should… OH YEAH! Forgot that part. Hanging them up anyway! Assuming I get around to hanging them up…
I overheard a resident calling me chill today
(Either I’m really good at hiding my crankiness, or I’m actually growing into that mythological third-year chilled-out-but-ready-for-action RA. Awww yeah)
So I'm officially going to the Student Counseling...
This is getting a little ridiculous. Time to reach out for some professional help. I take a small amount of pride in knowing that it’s time. I was going to do some replies to your replies to my posts about bulletin boards and door decs and my various stresses but I kept losing the drafts (I haven’t downloaded Missing E onto my new computer yet, so there’s that) But yeah, I...
This has been one of my most stressful weeks ever
Can’t I just stay in bed for three days straight?
RAs: Doo dee doo finishing a round. Oh look a resident!
Resident: Oh look the RA! Let me casually turn around and head back into this room.
RAs: Hmmm that was suspicious...oh well! Doo dee doo finished the round!
RAs: Doo dee doo going to bed for the night. Oh look a noise violation in that suspicious room.
Residents: Oh shit! The RA!
ONE TWELVE-PERSON ALCOHOL INCIDENT LATER
Happy Thirsty Thursday, Everyone!
memoriesofhal replied to your post: Being on Duty and Being Sick: …are you me right now Yes. SURPRISE! =D I hope that me feels better!
This was LITERALLY my face just now. I am so humbled by how amazing all of you are. No, seriously. You are better than residents, because you’re all people who GET IT. Res Life blogs have the BEST FOLLOWERS. There I said it. And it’s true!!!!
yousmellliketiasdad-deactivated asked: What do you feel was the best bulletin board you ever created? My favorite so far is my Life Lessons Brought to you By Buffy The Vampire Slayer board.
Being on Duty and Being Sick:
I don’t have a gif for this. It just fucking SUCKS.
there’s like this weird whirring going on underneath me. It happens in pulses every few seconds and has been for like…two weeks.
I got to be there for my co-RA's first incident!
I’m so proud of him. He told me he had suspected I would have been there. We spend like…ALL of our time together. I’m so glad I have a go-to person on staff. [Three musketeers are awesome too =)] This was the most subtle happy gif I could find. PS Sorry I haven’t been posting a lot. Grad school kind of hit me HARD CORE. As my schedule settles down to some semblance of...
