•hahah i have senioritis too and I also made a pottermore account yesterday:)
•It’s the last week of the semester, and you are asking the librarian how to print. Way to be aware of the resources included in your massive tuition. Before you know it, you’ll also realize you also have an included gym membership!
•To the Grandparents Ranters on April 16th and 17th:
Thank you for your sympathy. I really appreciate it. I still think about him. I know I'll never get over his loss, but it'll get better.
April 15th grandfather ranter
RIP Pop Pop K
•Can we please just rant and NOT argue about everything! Rants are not a forum to solve the world's problems and debate! ERGH!!!!!!!
•I hate group projects with a fiery passion.
•@NASA, someone actually said healthcare was a waste of time, unlike NASA. Thats just plain crazy.
•"I think I was rejected from a summer job in a small town because I listed working for a Jewish organization on my resume."
Interpretation 1: hiring manager states explicitly, "we are rejecting you because of your Jewish affiliations." In this case, that's very stupid of him/her and you can take legal measures.
Interpretation 2: you're paranoid and there are problems with your resume that you haven't acknowledged.
•Editor: Unless you count a guy making eye contact with a girl as attempted rape, you are WAY off with the 1 in 4 stat. Please stop making a mockery of date rape by claiming that is so common that 1 in 4 people experience it. It only makes the real rape victims more isolated and more criticized when you use bogus statistics to further your agenda.
•@”I propose a new policy for next year's rants. No talking about feminism and/or rape.” I propose you stop trying to censor other people’s rants and go somewhere else. I don’t take part in the aforementioned debates, but I very much enjoy getting a fresh perspective on issues for vital to college life at AU. These issues define the current struggles of our generation and deserve to be discussed.
•Does anyone else notice the black squirrel running around campus???
•To the hair drying hater - I haven't used a blow dryer since 2007. I don't waste an extra 15 minutes and my hair is in a lot better condition than it was when I was BDing every other day. I promise you won't miss it!
•To the people obsessing over parenting books and the insane difficulties apparently associated with keeping another human alive: how do you think we have come this far as a species? Reading more parenting books does not necessarily make you a better parent. And I don't know a guy that wouldn't be put off by someone that has been reading parenting books since they were 18, so good luck with that!
•Love calling the Health Center about 3-4 times on different days and at different points in the day for them to never answer. Really efficient, really.
•The Eagle should make a separate forum for everybody to discuss political issues. Or just make a new item called "Eagle Debates" and leave Eagle rants alone.
•I can't wait to go abroad, but a year is such a long time to be away from here. #abroadanxiety
•I've been crushing on another girl for awhile, but am not 100% sure she's gay. How do I tell her I like her without being awkward? And straight gals-- how would you feel if another girl asked you out?
•@girl who got her bf back: CONGRATS! We are so happy for you.
•What’s a pottermore account?
•@all the girls here have nice skin: OMG I totally feel this way too. I’ve tried everything for my skin and I still have breakouts. Idk how girls here get so naturally pretty.
•@I think I was rejected from a summer job in a small town because I listed working for a Jewish organization on my resume.” Stop playing the Jewish ‘woe is me’ card. You make us Jews look like complainers and further the stereotype. Maybe you weren’t hired because you lacked experience. Ever think of that?
•Lion king referenece ranter, I love you. Let’s be friends.
•I want to do something crazy before I graduate. Who wants to go streaking with me? We can turn it into something political if you want. Like streaking for world peace? Or streaking to end date rape? Not much different than marching and banging drums to end date rape. Who's with me?
•Even if someone does end up drinking too much that certainly doesn't mean she deserves to be raped, and there are many people here were it sounds like they're saying just that. I don't take advantage of anyone when they're black-out, so why can't men?
•you guys. this week SUCKS.
•BIRTHDAY OREOS YOU WERE FAR SUPERIOR TO YOUR NON-BIRTHDAY COUNTERPARTS...COME BACK!!! I'LL EAT YOU ON ANY F*** HOLIDAY
•I want Hitesh Pant to be my best friend! #wherehasthelovegone
•You are so immature for deleting me off of facebook. We were never even dating, and now I'm glad we never did.
•That does not sound like good sex. But to each his own?
•I'm so done with the conversations about who to educate in order to prevent rape. Why not send the message to people who commit rape that it is despicable and they will be punished, and send the message to everyone else that they must be cautious until the risk of rape is reduced? I don't understand why people can't reconcile these two approaches. Boom.
•No one is denying that being a stay at home mom isn't important. Being a housewife is different. Either way the point of going to a college or university is to be educated for a prospective future career and if all you want to do is be a housewife then you should go somewhere else because kids who want great jobs that require an AU education are missing out because of these people who want an AU education but don't plan on doing anything with it. No disrespect to prospective housewives who still want an education but there are other less specialized schools that are still fantastic at providing an education and have students who care about their community.
•Is it just me or does everyone at this school seem to want to be a victim of something?
•A year is 365 3/4ths of the time, 366 1/4th of the time #justsayin
•Dear Editor, writing one paper, no matter how involved, does not make you an expert in the topic. Until I see some actual cold hard facts about the 1 in 4, I'm going to believe the more skeptical numbers.
•PS Editor - Please stop interjecting your own opinions into Eagle Rants.
•All these long debates and conversations are boring.
•For God's sake, stop talking about housewives!! We get it, you're all opinionated. So why doesn't each side live its own life and just leave the other alone. I would like to read about something interesting on eagle rants
•Sheesh, I don't check Rants for like a week and someone posts something really negative about one of my close friends. Not sure if I should even mention it; it happened awhile ago :/
I hate knowing people's drama.
•This girl in my class is a complete moron. HOW did she get into college? Better question, HOW did she make it to her senior year? Ugh.
•Major props to L in the Honors office for fixing my Capstone paperwork woes today. Thanks!!
•So, 3 AM, we meet again...
•My brain feels like Floam right now. Damn you Capstone. Damn you to hell.
•I did accutane for my skin.
•2 spots left in 2 classes i want to get into..... wish we luck....
•when is the Wonk City video coming out?
•@How do I show my LDR bf I love him without seeming clingy, I am in a LDR too and I tried not being clingy. It actually got us in a huge fight. You are far away from each other and you need to communicate. Just talk to him and let him know why it's important for you to hear from him more often. Everything will be fine *fingers crossed*
•When did eagle rants stop being funny? If you want to complain about housewives, make a joke about their dutiful time in the kitchen. If you want to complain about SG, make the comparison that you accomplish more in a gen-ed block class. If you want to bewail your lackluster sex life, at least entertain us as we silently judge you.
•AU Library = A place for weirdoes to sleep on uncomfortable couches, while foreign kids Skype with their family in Korean time, where those who are hell bent on achieving lung cancer treatment debt on top of student loans procrastinate out front, and that weird dude with high pants and throw-back grandpa glasses seems to occupy most of his time pushing in chairs and grumbling about how furniture is out of place. But what is most depressing of all, is when the vacuum backpack people come rolling through to remind you its morning now, and I should really go wash my face and brush my teeth.
•You feminists need to stop trying to convince other women being a housewife is not important. I, as a man, sure as hell don't want to end up the one in the kitchen or picking out drapes. They do, stop complaining.
•All you proud future housewives are just women who recognize they fall short at life/work and hope to live another life through their child, or, in the case of a gold digger, their husband. Guess what, even if your child is the next Bono it had almost nothing to do with you. The DNA combining process is pure chance and children are influenced just as much, if not more, by the world around them. In fact, the parent/child relationship is actually weaker/worse among successful individuals and stars.
•1-in-4-people-are-raped-complainer here. Well, Madame Editor, although it appears both of us are fairly well read on this, one of us must be wrong, and I’ll yield to you and your capstone research…for now. Although, Editor, if your sources are accurate and so many sexual assaults are simply unreported that one in four women on college campuses are actually assaulted and it just never gets out (and I simply cannot believe that is possible, because that high a number of women defies logic and reason), then that is the most disturbing thing I have ever or will ever hear.
•BTW, by no means did I at any point intend to imply that you are uneducated on the issues behind rape statistics. What do I know, I'm just some scrub with Internet access and an ancillary interest in women's rights issues. I still am skeptical of those numbers, but smart folks can disagree. Cheers to your Capstone!
[Editor's note: Thanks!]
•Girl who had the Pikachu hat, sorry for awkwardly talking to you about it. I get flustered when I see a pokémon as beautiful as yourself.
