7 things about me you didn't realize you wanted to know

So I got this award from Sarah:

and I don’t entirely know what it means but now apparently I’m supposed to tell you seven things about myself. So!

1. I’m finally graduating college in December, if my university doesn’t screw me over and cancel the LAST CLASS I NEED because the prof that was supposed to teach it ran away to Georgia. God I hope those bastards find a replacement prof. GOD.
2. The questions I hate the most in the world is “so what are you going to do after you graduate?” because I don’t know. I haven’t decided yet!
3. Next most-hated question is “so what are you going to do with a degree in English?” UGH.
4. I’m seriously thinking about getting a pet, like a small-ish dog! Maybe a pug? Something adorable and cuddly and from a shelter, I think. But it’ll have to wait until I decide what I’m going to do after college and no, I still haven’t decided yet! Don’t ask me don’t ask me don’t ask me.
5. My favorite movies are Clueless, Legally Blonde, and Kiki’s Delivery Service. Totally not ashamed, btw.
6. I love stage musicals, especially ones that sparkle. Like Dirty Rotten Scoundrels! That was a really sparkly show, wow.
7. I don’t know how to drive a car (or anything else) and I have no desire to learn unless it’s absolutely necessary for some reason.

And now I’m supposed to tag 15 other people, but I don’t feel like doing that because I’m a grouch. If you wanna do the meme, do the meme. 😀

  1. I hated it when people asked me that. I knew they were just trying to be friendly–I’ve asked people the same question–but it always made me feel stressed. :p

    Dude, learn how to drive. Driving is awesome. I was scared to learn to drive, and I had a really mean and terrible driving instructor (he used to start violently at random moments, on purpose to scare me, and then laugh when I freaked out and asked what I had done wrong. On the highway. In a thunderstorm.), but driving is now one of my most favorite things to do. I never expected it to give me such a strong feeling of agency as it does.

    1. I know! I know they’re trying to be friendly and interested in my life and stuff, but every time someone asks me one or both of those questions it makes me feel a) panicked because I don’t have a plan and everyone else seems to, b) like an inadequate person because I don’t have a plan. So!

      Driving a car is probably awesome and all, but I don’t want to pay for the classes, pay for the license, pay for the car, pay for the insurance, pay for the gas and pay for the upkeep. I’d rather just get a bus pass and maybe a bicycle, and that’s all the agency I need. 😀

  2. If you’re in a city where you can get anywhere you need to on foot, on a bike, or on public transportation, more power to you- but it’s good to know, just in case you ever find yourself in the suburbs or in an out of the way location.

    To combine 5 and 6, have you seen Legally Blonde: The Musical? Just as sparkly, glittery, and perky as you’d want any show to be. I love it unashamedly.

    1. Yeah, I totally plan on living only in places where I can take buses or bike to wherever. Urban living ftw!

      And yes, I have! It’s a lot of fun, huh? Though it totally doesn’t make any sense unless you’ve seen the movie (maybe not even then). The tour is coming to my town next spring and yay! I get to see it live.

  3. I wholeheartedly agree on number 2 and 3, those are very annoying questions!

    I hope they get to find a replacement professor. The faculty of arts is suffering from severe money issues, so in my case they would probably just cancel 🙁

    And I love Clueless!

    Sorry, I just really like it when I find out that bloggers have things in common with me apart from reading 🙂

    1. Yeah, my minor is a tiny one in the overall thingy of my university, so we’re always short on professors and applicable classes. I’ve signed up for a back-up class but I’m not even sure if it’ll count towards my minor– I’ll have to double-check next week to be sure. ARGH.

  4. Yay get a pug – the dog will keep all those nasty questions away. Just wait until job interviews – so why…? or to that’s a bit of a leap isn’t it, why go this route? at which point you will 80% of the time want to say ‘the world requires me to have money’. That is not the right answer apparently.

    1. It seems to me that very few people actually end up doing something in their major field after they graduate anyway, so it doesn’t even really matter WHAT you major in because you’ll probably end up working at McDonald’s or something. 🙁

  5. God, I hope your school finds a replacement professor for your last class! I really want an English bulldog but I think I’ll surprise my kids and get them a rabbit instead! 😉 I definitely understand the whole not-driving thing. I can’t drive either but I’m determined to learn.

  6. Re #2: Oh, I know what you mean. It is the most annoying question on the planet (don’t worry, I won’t ask!). I’ve been dealing with a version of it myself: “So, how’s your thesis going?” Seriously, people, I WILL TELL YOU WHEN I FINISH IT. I know they mean well, but they’ve never, ever asked about any other paper I’ve ever written before and the fact they ALWAYS ask about this one is just a constant reminder of its importance. Frankly, I don’t need the added pressure.

    We should form a club! A “don’t ask me don’t ask me don’t ask me” club!
