This is a thing in which I am miserable for pretty much most of the time, but still find the capacity to be enthusiatic about some nerdy things.
Note: Everything I post, unless specified, is not mine.
BTW: As of 9/25, I've decided that this will be my last day on tumblr. It's been a fun ride, and I hope you all stay well, but outside things aren't working out so well, and I've gotta go. I'll leave the page up for a while, but I'll delete it eventually.
oh wow here have the only defense of texas you’ll ever get from me
Okay so I’ve lived in texas for like eleven years now and I’ve seen snow here maybe five times. Unlike states that get feet of snow on a regular basis, people here aren’t used to it. We have no need for stuff like snow tires and shit, because we’d use them maybe once every 2-3 years. My city has ONE truck to dispatch to salt the major roads, and they still spend stupid amounts of money to keep it in storage for the one day a year it gets used. Everything gets shut down because we don’t have the infrastructure to deal with icy roads and it’s a hell of a lot safer for everyone to just take a day or two of work/school.
But you know if you northerners get a tiny itty bitty tornado any time soon and flip ship I’ll just sit here calling you weak because that’s apparently what we do now.
whooo! first effects of T: a ton of acne on my shoulders and back, and my upper arm muscles are sore as hell (possibly developing? i hope)
i haven’t been able to get to work the past few days, and i feel pretty guilty about it, especially since i would like to work there full time, even if its just for maybe a year.
but i do have a damn good excuse: this is texas. no one has treated the roads with salt or sand or anything, and there is at least 2 inches of solid, slippery ice around my car and on the street.
i’m gonna have to stop here, this is too damn frustrating and i’m gonna go on and get back to studying, i’ll pick it up again on wednesday
