A corollary of what I just said is that it’s damn foolish to assume that because you share certain cultural factors with folks you will get along. Yeah, it’s cool to nod at the person of your color on the street, but they have just as high a chance of sucking as someone whose skin (or some other characteristic) isn’t like yours at all.

Beefin it up
Going to make certain to increase my presence on here. I am going to commit to a substantive post every tues and thurs on my ride home from work. So here’s today’s: I think one of the truly fascinating things about what I have learned over the past two years is that the bigoted reaction to various groups of people is always wrong.

13 Things I Learned In Grad School
Now that grad school is over, I can offer some pithy assessment. I’ll be stentorian and stoic when I give my speech, but here’s some fun. Why 13? Because I like that number, fuck you. :) 1. Absolutely do not apply for, pay for, and attend graduate classes unless you can see a career ahead of you that the additional degree will help you achieve. You do not want to feel like...
Katy Perry documentary out this summer
Because when I think Katy Perry, I think about how many layers there must be under the surface. Though to be fair her (admittedly perfectly fun) pop sure does have a lot of literal layers of production. Sent via BlackBerry from T-Mobile
