I guess I remember what it was like to not be furious all the time I think

This makes it sound like English is dying out because it was replaced by Latin and Greek.
In all seriousness though, how many schools taught classical languages 100 years ago? Definitely not the one room schoolhouses my grandparents and great-grandparents attended out here. My grandmother didn’t even wear shoes to school. That was the American West in 1914. They weren’t learning Latin, and most of the boys were leaving school semi-literate when they were brawny enough to work the fields.(via chrysostmom)
tru and also this kind of academic snobbery is why it’s almost impossible for anyone who didn’t attend a fancy schmancy private or public school where Latin and Greek were taught to succeed as an undergraduate or higher in classics or a related field. unfair and gross that these kind of gateways are set up so early in student’s lives
ugh my friend has some guests staying over in our house for a for a conference which is fine in and of itself but omg why do men think it’s okay to walk around in just their underwear

having trouble coming to terms with the fact that I don’t want to go out and party anymore
