    Oh, interesting. The reason I posted that is that today we got to discussing part of the nature of written English as it is used today, and we started talking about how due to spelling conventions it's moving away from being a purely phonemic language to almost featuring a hybrid of phonemic and logographic writing. That lecture interested me like nothing I've had in college so far. It was fun - hehe.

    That does sound like an interesting discussion! I remember talking about how although there is of course standard English (or any language), non-standard dialects aren't considered better or worse, in that they all get the job (communication) done. I thought that was interesting at the time, and I've often thought about it in relation to txt speak. Personally txt speak drives me crazy, but I suppose the same argument could be made-- it's sure not standard spelling, but it gets the job done!
    Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.

    I finish my quarter, get a break, and now I feel jittery/upset because I have no work to do. This has been happening since I started school.

    Something must be really wrong with me.

    If we agreed on everything, then there would be no internet drama.

    I was screwing around with someone acting creepy with me, but then they got creeped out, and now I just feel creepy, even though what I said wasn't all that creepy.

    Creepy is a weird-looking word.

    Do you get those recurring dreams that you actually had a SUPER IMPORTANT class or job to do this week, but missed it, and that it's too late to save your scores?

    haha...it's so damn pathetic. By the time it sinks in that I don't have work to do, the next quarter will be starting!

    I find it interesting that the two most prominent posters with cats as their avatars are each others' shadow. (That was so poorly worded.) I'm lookin' at yooouuu, @Marmotini and @Aleda

    Also, my posts dramatically increase in frequency whenever I have actual work to do. Like right now.

    We are merging into one human being.
    I really like cats and food.
