Life Advice

Some life advice

- Do not whine about how poorly you did on an exam and claim that the exam was "unfair" because you have never heard of some of the things on it... and then follow up that comment with a nonchalant "Yeah, I never even pay attention in that class. I just zone out and play online" or "yeah, I never do the reading for that class." I promise, I'm not judging you. I don't think you're lazy or stupid. You made a decision about how to spend your time, and for you, avoiding listening to a boring lecture is what made you happy. That's perfectly fine. Buuuuuut... don't whine about not doing well in the class.

- If you are a pedestrian, don't just walk out in front of a moving car. Yes, I realize that you have the right of way in a cross walk, but what if they're not paying attention? Granted, if they hit you, they would be in the wrong, but that won't matter when your brains are splattered all over the ground. Oh, and newsflash - if there isn't a crosswalk, you don't have the right of way.

Don't believe me? Check out this website about pedestrian safety. I realize its hard to a pedestrian, but be smart. Waiting a few seconds to cross the street rather than just blindly walking out will not inconvenience you that much.

- Cars- south of campus, there are a lot of 2-way stops. If you are driving perpendicularly to those who are stopped at a stop sign, just keep driving. I understand that you want to be nice and stop so that they can go, but you're going to cause an accident. First of all, someone could rearend you and it would be your fault for obstructing the flow of traffic. Second, the person you are trying to help has to cross 2 lanes of traffic, and there might be someone coming from the other direction - therefore, even if you wait, they might not be able to go. Unless traffic is really bad, and the person at the stop sign does not stand a chance to every get out, just drive. 

- What else? Mustaches are gross. Guys should never wear flip flops with jeans. Occupy Wall Street is a joke. Marry a man who vacuums. Show your work clearly on exams or I will never give you partial credit. Men's deodorant works better than women's....


  1. Is that true about deodorant? I'll have to try it.

  2. I really hate it when pedestrians enter the crosswalk without even looking to see if cars are coming. And a lot of them have earplugs in and are busy playing with their phones or iPods, so they're really not paying attention.

  3. I like this post a lot. I have been thinking about starting a blog just to inject my personal opinion (rightness) into the world. haha. This is Kevin Schwieger by the way, i just made the account with Maeser hall.
