And it's only the first week...

Just a quick clarification regarding my last blog, especially for reader Rubeena. The term "dumb bitch" does not necessarily mean what it literally should. It's a slang term that people at my school use to describe a person who is or does something exceedingly stupid and/or annoying. You know that person in your life who makes you wonder how the hell they got into college? That's a dumb bitch.

ANYWAY, yesterday I had pretty interesting start to one of my classes. The teacher insisted that we play one of those insipid get-to-know-you games. We each wrote down three "thought-provoking" questions (one of mine was "What is your favorite Harry Potter book?"). Then we had to go around the room and ask people our questions. Since it was 8:20 AM and I was NOT in the mood for this, I mostly talked to people I knew.


When everyone was done asking questions, we had to get up and talk about ourselves. Sort of. We each stood up and said our name and major. Then the people who asked you questions got to tell the rest of the class about you based on the answers you gave. Since I had mostly talked to my friends, they knew what questions to ask me to provoke funny answers. So on my turn I stand up, and my friend Chris says, "Kaitlyn's favorite topic to discuss is Harry Potter." Facepalm. Then my friend Sunny says, "The website she visits most often is YouTube because she's on it."

Oh shit.

Bear in mind that this class is about 80% jocks. No one was amused. Well, the teacher was. But there ya go. Already I'm the weird Harry Potter girl, and it's only the first week.


On August 27, in about twenty minutes, I will be 22. Twenty-freakin-two. I don't even know what to do. I'm old.

Well, I guess I'll stay up 'til midnight and then go straight to bed like the old lady I am. Have a nice my birthday, everyone!


  1. Happy Birfdai! :)
    And gosh, I wish I knew people in my classes. I start college next Monday, and I'm 99.9% sure I won't know ANYBODY in ANY of my classes, which is scary, because I'll either end up the loner freak or...I don't even know. Basically, I have no idea how it's going to turn out. :///

  2. I've never been a big fan of the ice breaker games that teachers do. And it always seems that when I do have to participate in them, I only have one or two friends in my class and we're not allowed to talk to people we know, or theres some weird catch at the end like what happened to you. I'm not really looking forward to Tuesday when I start school again :/. I just want it to be Christmas now lol.

  3. I hope you had a great birthday! I'm pretty sure I had a pretty good Kaitlyn's Birthday Day. [:
