wait, does that mean that you're giving up?

oh, no chance in hell. i have a spotless sinkage record. i will see this through. i will come out breathing. fuck the fucking boat.

i got 100% on my election diary! incredibly cool, because it was all done in one night, and the vast majority of it was caustic, snarky and rambling in my bigassvocabulary kind of way. i can only assume that senor largo was in a cynical and incoherent mood when he graded the diaries. i'm going to miss him when he stops student teaching.

& i may just offer cash to the person who understood verbatim #2.

if anybody should ask i'm going to a seminar
