You’re supposed to be on a date, after all.
"why didn’t you do your homework over the holidays?"
This is the best thing I’ve ever seen
My dad has something similar, and it’s rough. I really hope that you get everything worked out!
yesterday was really scary, and i do hope things get sorted… so yeah, i’m hoping to keep to the schedule, which i will follow now!
"There are a handful of shows I ask everyone I talk to about television if they have seen: The Wire, Mad Men, Friday Night Lights. But when I ask them if they’ve watched and loved Friday Night Lights, what I mean is are you my kind of person? Are you all heart? Are you bothered by this 21st-century lack of earnestness, our abundance of irony? Do you wonder how we forgive and coach ourselves to do better? How we can strive again for valor and loyalty and daring and redemption?
I fear we are defaulting to needless negativity as some kind of social currency. But Friday Night Lights is the most earnest show I’ve ever watched. Not sentimental, however: these characters aren’t perfect. In fact, this show is incredibly astute at allowing humans to have stratums of complexity: to have character and occasionally act without it, and then to live in the mire of their own dumb choices. Do I adore Coach? Yes. Do I think, as Tammy says, he is a molder of men and a husband of fierce devotion? Absolutely. Do I also think he can also be a self-involved, sexist prick who values his career over his wife’s? No question.
Regardless of the scale of the battle, the stakes in Friday Night Lights are rarely phony or contrived. It’s about winning games, sure, but its scope far exceeds that. This is a show that tests and reflects commitment not just on the football field, but back in the locker room. And in Street’s rehab room, and Saracen’s grandmother’s living room, and Julie’s bedroom, and eventually out to Luke’s farm and Tim’s prison and Tammy’s dream in Philadelphia. This commitment is not about obligation, but something more sacred. Duty. The hidden gale that blusters and grows within us and makes us yearn to give someone else exactly what they need.”

Turns out, I have positional vertigo so I can’t eat chocolate or drink caffeine or eat salty food :((((. and I have to sleep early, which I’ve resolved to do, so I’ll be offline in a few minutes. I’ll be sleeping early for the next week.
I need to organize my schedule so I can still do fannish stuff and update my stories.
Just, remember this. It is my patriotic message for the day.
