Registration here is such a nightmare. We crashed banner promptly at 3:30 this afternoon, and I was locked out until around 5:00. I got into CS 243, Calc 2, Theater / Dance in China (Freshman seminar), and the wrong section of Chinese 102… No dice on econ. This is rubbish.
I’m going to try and get Su Laoshi to give me an override into her section of Chinese 102 so I can keep her as a teacher, though I don’t think having Yu Laoshi would be the end of the world.
Akshay sent me this today; I love the distinction.
"Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”
I genuinely think I’m better than a lot of people at a lot of things, but I don’t tell them that. The people who irritate me are the ones who think they’re better than a lot of people at a lot of things, and vocally let people know. That’s what pisses me off.
