I hate waiting. (/inigo)
I hate waiting on other people. I especially hate waiting on other people when what they are (apparently not!) doing directly affects my own life.
Dear Texas State University,
If you could, you know, hurry up and let me know if I can haz a degree program? That’d be awesome.
If you can’t tell, I am totally going for an English degree. It’s cause I am good with words and stuff.
The truth is I love words. I love reading them. I love writing them. I love finding out all about them. This is beneficial, as I will apparently be spending quite a bit of time doing all three. That is, if I’m ever accepted.
I wonder if it would help if I go up and poke the admission counselors with a stick?
I’ve actually had a couple of people ask me what I am going to do with an English degree.
Excuse me? Were you trying to be obnoxious or did it just come out that way?
Who asks that sort of thing?
OBNX PEOPLE: “What job are you going to get with that degree? Aren’t you concerned you’ll be stuck in a McDonald’s somewhere, asking if they want fries with that?” *hyuck hyuck hyuck*
(Actual question. True story.)
Why sure, I am. Mostly, its because I am concerned because the job market is so poor, right now. Many people are having trouble getting jobs. Not just us word geeks.
As for an English degree being useless?
What do you think on that sort of unsolicited advice? Do you find it common? Is it something that you would do? Why or why not?
