I'm really excited for Austin's Comic Con. Hopefully I'll get to volunteer again there this year! Here is a picture that sums up my excitement:
Yesterday, I had 9 days left in Minnesota. I'm a good driver, and have had the fortune of never hitting a deer. For some reason, I feel that Minnesota wanted me to have the Real Minnesotan Driving Experience.
What is the Real Minnesotan Driving Experience?
I'll give you a hint: it involves a deer.
It is not hitting a deer on the interstate going 70 mph. Anyone can do that. It is not hitting a deer on a back country road, I mean, that's where deer live... in the woods. No, the Real Experience is getting hit by a deer while in a moving vehicle in a residential area. Did I actually hit the deer? Yes, but if milliseconds had passed, the deer would have hit the side of my car full on. I was almost t-boned by a deer.
Are you happy, Minnesota? I've been driving for 7 years now and never hit a deer. I decide to move and *BAM*.
Well, it could have been a lot worse. Things happen. Accept it; embrace it, and move on.
I found this as I was packing my stuff up to move, and it made me laugh. It's a story I wrote about one of my professors.
When he smiles, he opens his mouth wide and squints his eyes tight, like a monkey. He lets his arms hang low which makes him more ape-like. His grey, wispy hair occasionally catches a draft and moves. Sometimes it moves against his motions and it looks like an animal trying to escape his head. With long skinny legs and a pot belly, his proportions are slightly odd. His hand shakes often, and I am saddened by the thought that he might not teach much longer. I like his teaching style, but his facts could use some credence. His conspiracy theories get old quickly. He is not a particularly animated person, and, even as I write this, I am in his class. I look around and everyone is intently staring at their notebooks. The pages are blank, no notes have been taken. The more I come to this class, the more I am amused by his technological illiteracy. He once asked if we should rewind a DVD. At least 5 minutes of every class is spent turning things on the right way, including the lights. I have to admire that he tries. Today, he drew on the wall instead of the dry erase board. Oh well.
