stagnation

Stagnation: when there is nothing to learn from your current situation, and no room to grow as a person.

lift

in Ireland, they call an elevator a “lift.” Takeout is “take away.” Wallet is “purse.” Dishes and pots and pans are “crockery.” Nine-thirty is “Half nine.” It’s all English but it’s not the same language.

thieves

They say there is no honor among thieves. But if our politicians are supposed to be the answer, I think I’d rather throw my lot in with the thieves.

institute

The professor had a sort of melt-down after he was denied tenure. I guess there’s a fine line between institute and institution.

excluded

Whenever I feel unliked, I remind myself that excluded is only two letters away from being secluded. And then I go cry in the corner and eat a gallon of Ben & Jerrys.

certified

Last week, I took a sixty-question test from the Federal Aeronautics Administration and became certified to fly a drone in a commercial setting. So I guess it’s true: I am certifiable.

misunderstood

HIM: “I have a bunch of movies. See: here’s Die Hard, and here’s Rat Race.”

ME: “Oh, I LOVE Rat Race.”

HIM: “You’ve seen it?”

ME: “Sure. It’s such a funny movie.”

HIM: “Funny?”

ME: “Yeah! You know! All the car stuff, and Jon Lovitz and…”

HIM: “Ohhh…no, sorry. I meant Death Race.”

ME: “Oh.”

Silence.

incognito

Whenever I walk around the city, I strive to be incognito, even though I have nothing to hide especially. I want to be invisible, and whenever someone recognizes me, or I get called out on some error or minor transgression, I confess I feel disappointed.

perspective

In art class last week, we studied perspective. How do you render a 3D world onto a flat piece of paper, and what does it mean to do so? How do the little etchings of lines make a picture that seems to show the world the way it really is? I left feeling as though something were missing from my brain because for the life of me, I wanted to look at everything from all sides at once. Artistic omniscience.
