fantastic discovery...

i love when i discover little tidbits online... i was searching for a patriotic bathing suit (thank you, target!) when i stumbled across this bad boy:

it. is. awesome.

i think i love it so much because it reminds me of my sister-in-law and my sister. their lives make my life result in a serious case of the giggles. honestly, the things that moms have to deal with... it's a jungle out there!

i digress.

i recommend you take a looksie at this blog and laugh; she is hysterical!

consider this a tribute to the mums out there.

dear college gods,

really? cancelling summer semester, altogether? don't you think this is getting a little ridiculous? tuition is already a rape, the already thin class selection continues to narrow, and the fact that ALL classes fill up within a couple of days is kinda aggravating seeing as the athletes, disabled students, and poor students get to register before everyone. that's kind of a large group of people, college gods. what is left for the rest of us? what is weird to me is that i'm pretty sure you don't make money when students aren't paying tuition... so why would you cancel a semester causing NO one to pay tuition? no wonder you are broke! i find it very (un)comforting that you say, "we do not ANTICIPATE having to cancel Fall semester." did you anticipate cancelling summer? because i'm pretty sure you've been telling people (me) for the last MONTH that, "the schedule will be up any minute now!". i'm sorry you haven't a penny to your name, but you're screwing up my education.

(more) sincerely (than you know),

a frustrated co-ed
