Geology Chronicles: Part One

Jesus Christ this class is boring!

Oh, hello general audience...sorry that I didn't notice you right away, I was too busy trying to wake up from my current class....ah, glarb! This intro to my newest blog post sucks! Wait, wait, let me start again:

Hey team, welcome back to WGSA. Currently I am pondering the important things in life while sitting in my Geology lecture. Here they are right now, starting about now:

1) Why the heck do all humanities TA's love Steep and Brew? Why do lots of people? Look, you all know clearly that I am not a huge coffee drinker (if you don't know this, you are a poor stalker and a horrible fan of me then). But I've been to a variety of chain-styled coffee shops, and from my experience, Steep and Brew is very average. In fact, the shop is so average that the words "Steep" and "Brew" use an average of 4.5 letters per word when the two words are averaged together, and this is the average number of letters per English word! Duh!

2) I have lost all respect for Teach for America. I had a meeting today with someone from Teach for America (at Steep and Brew of course), and I thought I was getting an edge on becoming a member of the system. I know what you are thinking: story time....

Earlier in the month during a cool, crisp, democratic-like day, TFA mailed me a letter (using an electronic mailing program, how cool!) that they wanted to discuss with me how I should become a member of their program, since I have a very strong math and science background.

And I was excited! What a great opportunity! So I responded, and decided to meet with one of their representitives at the average coffee house. The beginning of the meeting started off well, and the gentle man asked me questions regarding my major, future plans, etc...

Then it happened...

"Well, we really don't want to recruit you, but we were hoping you could give us some insight about how we can recruit more TFA students that are involved in math and science..."

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?

YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO RECRUIT ME! I couldn't believe it! You got some nerve using me as a tool for your teacher destruction program!

As of today, November 23, 2009, I declare philosophical war on TFA. Let me throw the first punch (actually stolen from a friend of mine):

"TFA, are you proud of the fact that you fill teacher jobs with overacheiving upper class students that only do this to boost their resume while teachers with actual degrees in education struggle to find jobs?"

Ponder this fact for a bit.

3) Computer Science, although I am not in that class anymore, still sucks...and it always will.

Peace

What's happening in the weather world: Madison, Wisconsin edition

So recently the southern Wisconsin area was hit by some nasty weather. Although it did not really impact the Southern Central and Eastern half of the state, it did impact the southwestern part of the state, which is wonderful for meteorologists! This is not good for the citizens though, but luckily no one was hurt....therefore the storms can be declared AWESOME!

Okay, they were not the coolest thing in the world, but two tornadoes did form in the southwestern Wisconsin area. One tornado was to the northwest of Shullsburg, WI, while the other was to its south. Both tornadoes had an EF1 rating on the Enhanced Fujita Scale, indicating minor damage. This included the knocking down of a few metal shacks, a side of a house, and a few barns. The northern storm had hail sizes ranging from 1.5in - 3in in diameter, indicating golf ball to baseball sized hail. The southern storm had 2.5in diameter hail at its peak; this ranges around to Baseball size.

Here's the National Weather Service - Sullivan, WI link posted below: I also have a picture used in the same article as reference of storm paths, hail, etc... (but like I said, it's in the link posted from the NWS, so thanks for letting me borrow it, and don't sue me for using it on this inferior blog)

So there's a little severe weather debriefing for Friday, July 24, 2009 in the NWS Sullivan CWA. I hoped you enjoyed this small segment!

Peace out

3 MONTH BREAK OVER!!!

Hey everybody!

So you are probably wondering why I have stopped posting stuff on this wall. Well, the morale of the story is that I just got really lazy (and busy) the last few months, including travels to Germany, Milwaukee, WI, Manitowoc, WI and Eagle River, WI over the course of this summer.

I realized today though that I have been neglecting the 5-6 people that actually read this. I noticed that I received a comment on the most recent post (though not that recent) that I placed on here, and therefore, this gives me a new optimistic view on this blog.

Therefore, I am officially back! I will do my best to update this from time to time and make this as interesting as I want them to be. If you don't like what I post, well, that's not my problem. If you do like this, then welcome! We love you already!

I hereby reinstate this blog as "live" again!

Sincerely,

Me

Another lyric analysis!

I know what you're thinking...WGSA, when are you going to analyze another song? Well, how about now! Let's do it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

For this edition of lyric analysis, let us look at one of the most suspenseful songs of all time. This chart is called "Because" by The Beatles, off of their album "Abbey Road." This is the album with the crosswalk and The Beatles on the crosswalk. More inconsistently, trees are taller than most people.

Anyway here are the lyrics to this confusing and upsetting song below:

Because the world is round it turns me on
Because the world is round...aaaaaahhhhhh

Because the wind is high it blows my mind
Because the wind is high......aaaaaaaahhhh

Love is old, love is new
Love is all, love is you


Because the sky is blue, it makes me cry
Because the sky is blue.......aaaaaaaahhhh

Aaaaahhhhhhhhhh....

Talk about suspense! Could you imagine if someone came up to you and said, "Because the world is round it turns me on, because the world is round..." or said, "Because the wind is high it blows my mind, because the wind is high..." Because...because....BECAUSE!!!!! Why do you cut your sentences off Paul, Ringo, George and John? WHY???? JUST FINISH THE DAMN SENTENCE, WE ALL JUST WANT TO KNOW THE ANSWER!!!!

Now skeptics of this blog would say some bull like, "Well, the point of this song is that the person singing this is not sure how to finish their thoughts, as they are lovestruck, happy, joyful, puzzled, confused, and/or content with their lover, especially those men dating women named Yoko." Well you know what....I think you're all WRONG! I think these guys were about to finish their song, but then got distracted, went to do some sort of drug or sexual encounter, and never finished it! And I thought the Beatles were some sort of legendary band...look at them trying to use some sort of creative songwriting method with a rare use of synthesizers and use of minimalist imagery....is that really creative?

Anyway, enjoy it/hate it as you like/hate, but please, next time someone writes a song....NO SENTENCE FRAGMENTS!

Peace
