Colleg e iz Hard

I literally feel myself melting down before I suck it up and put my big girl panties on. Week 2 of real college seems to get me in the anxiety wheel. Meanwhile, the makers of PoliceOne have purchased Uniform Stories and at this stage none of us know where that site is going to go and so we wait. I have no indication whether I am a keeper or a tosser at this point.

Late at night a few nights ago, I did receive a nice phone call from the owner of Uniform Stories and I thought it was pretty honorable and outstanding for him to call everyone individually. I will pass on what I think you all should know: he started the site as a labor of love trying to get the voice out on the uniform side and create an outlet to portray the side no one sees and to give insight to first responders of all types. He said he will continue to support law enforcement and all first responders and extended his thanks to all for what they do. He was very passionate and I was impressed by his love for people and doing a good thing. So there you have it.



Now...in the meantime, I am still here. My latest article on criminaljusticedegree.com  is here.  I do enjoy the site and I believe it has an abundance of useful information plus educational degree seeking opportunities. Please give the Facebook page some love if you will. I promise it won't blow up your feed and you will only be alerted with great educational pieces from moi and other writers. If you browse, you will see they don't post a lot of crazy and keep it clean and infrequent as not to harass any Facebook users. Now The Boogie Man FB page on the other hand is annoying. You're welcome.

What topics do you want to read about? Give me some suggestions.

Fargo Goes To Colleg e

Apologies to the masses. I know you are probably relieved that I have been away from Da Blog for a few days. Quality over quantity, right? Well, that is in the eyes of the beholder, just like beauty. I have no snark and circumstance. It has failed me. So...in substitution... you will get life updates in Cliff Notes. Some things which might shock you:

1. I am not dead.

2. I did not get locked up in the funny farm.

3. I am not in jail.

4. I am not on an island vacation.

Instead, I am going to grad school and now find my life drowning with studies. Ack!

I really am trying to adjust and so bear with me, if you will. There are some things waking me right "the fuck up" as I like to say:

1. College has changed after 30 years.

2. I am a techno dummie.



3. Being a student is work.

4. Blog language is not good on papers.

5. NO ONE gets me.

6. People don't speak in normal words, but in college code and dictionarial, or pedagogical.

7. What did he say?

8. They still use notebooks and pens! Score!

9. College students under the age of 30 throw fits to get their way.



The list goes on, but I won't bore you with the rest.

POPOsterous

Meanwhile in Fishers, Indiana....

This photo was captured by my friend on his daily run. Oopsy. Any theories on that sequence of events" LOL. BTW...the driver was unharmed, just old and embarrassed.

In between puddles of rain, we have little rays of sunshine here and there. This week is cooling down to low-mid 80s. Whew. Finally getting close to my optimal temperatures.

After my disastrous doctor's visit last week, I told Obi that my doctor told me I still need to lose 25-30 pounds. He said, "NO NO NO NO! Those charts are bullshit. You have a great body." Apparently, that did not make him happy. I also thanked him for being a nice, blind friend.

Controversy seems to still be plaguing Trump as now media outlets are reporting the Lousiana governor is upset at him for coming to the state. He had supposedly made an announcement for all candidates and the president to stay away while they render assistance to residents. I am not sure if that was a biased liberal outlet reporting those thoughts or if it is actually the truth. Time will tell. The reason behind the upset, as told to me, was that resources were wasted making sure Trump security was up to par and his safety was a distraction. I don't  know. All I know is the guy can't win. Plus all the social media is up in hype over him handing out some toys and Play-Doh. OMG. For one, as a parent, I would be happy to have something for my kiddos. He was also handing out necessities, but no one captured that.

What did Obama or Hillary do in Lousiana?

*crickets*

They haven't been there yet. However, I am sure they will learn from Trump's social media frenzy and be knee deep in mud so they don't get raked over the coals.

And luck of the Irish is not with several Notre Dame football players. Attacking the police? Shame.

It would nice if the world would stop being so mean to the PoPo.
