When I grade Intro. to Geology exams and 1/3 of the class calls basalt a sedimentary rock
My life as a TA..
story of my life
My stoner metal life
My boyfriend and I are starting a stoner/drone metal project with him on bass and guitar, and me on drums. I’ve never felt such a calling to be a drummer than when I’m making music with him. Its so incredible, the connection we have when we are jamming together.
Music is a great thing that way.
We are currently recording every practice, and forming songs out of those recordings. The process is coming along well, and I hope to deliver some solid material in the next few months.
School may be a delay, but it isn’t a road block. We will make music, and good.
My friends might think my life is a waste of time?
Oh close guy friend of me, I wish you wouldn’t tell me day in and day out that my college education is bullshit and that I should be miserable but still getting paid like you are.
I wish you would stop treating me like a naive little girl and tell me “you will have to get a regular ass job one day and you WILL hate it and the rest of your life along with it.” As if I’m not aware of the possibilities.
I don’t live in lala land where life is a fairy tale and everything is perfect. I’m not your verbal punching bag that you can throw bullshit at and expect me to still stand there. I know we joke, but after a while it makes me feel really inadequate and shitty.
Is it wrong for me to dream of doing what I want to with me life? Is it so wrong for me to even try? Should I just throw away 5 years of college education without even trying to be a geologist because you say “honestly, kaito, you should just get a REAL fucking job.”
Is a geologist not a real job? Does a real job mean fast food worker/retail/any minimum wage job that has a high potential of me hating it?
Fuck fuck fuck why do I even put up with this shit?
I’m tired of this conversation.
Fresh meltdowns at the devastated nuclear facility are unlikely but years of slow, dangerous labor to repair the existing damage are guaranteed
I just wanted to share this article, because it seems like a lot of people are being overly worried about radiation on the US West Coast from the Fukushima meltdown.
I’ve had this discussion in several of my college classes this semester, with my Geology and Chemistry teachers especially. Everyone seems to agree, we don’t need to worry about radiation levels in Pacific caught fish.
My only suggestion: when you’re reading news articles on this stuff, cross-check your information with other reliable sources. A lot of misinformation gets spread around. Back up your facts and choices.
Don’t let misplaced fears rule your life.

salivating over some amazing geology, and remembering what an AWESOME trip it was going to Utah last spring.
That bizarre looking mountain is Crystal Peak in the Wah Wah Mountains. The last photo is us after we climbed to the top.
Man, I miss it.
So here’s what’s up:
I often hear people talk about the beat, or beats, when talking about music. Unfortunately, many people use this word incorrectly. In pop culture today, it has become much more widely accepted to mean a variety of things (even the wikipedia article says so), but that’s not an excuse to be ignorant of the facts!
I have personally been called out by people for my misuse of “the beat,” and to be honest, people can be pretty brutal in knowing how to make a person feel like an idiot. :(
So, I thought I could do it the nice way: Check out this wikipedia article!
You just might learn something new, and get to talk about your favorite music in a new way. :)
