It's Like His Poetry Was Inside My Head, Eating My Brains

For all of you who feel like not taking a math course has left a void in your life, or, like me, stayed up until 4am watching youtube videos and then couldn't understand anything in math class, here's a little something for you.

Let "japanese quiz" equal really hard because I'm bad at learning languages and the Japanese are beasts at everything, especially speaking a language that's hard to learn.
Let "my focus" equal "an issue" because I stayed up until 4am.
Let my caffeine tolerance equal "low", because I've hardly had any since getting here.
Now, let equal "cherry bawls", the integral of which is tons of caffeine.

I owe the and the timing of this to Mike-sensei, master of bawls who told me I'd get the best focus-enhancing effect if I drunk the right before my quiz. So here's the scenario: I've just sat down with my quiz. Next to me is a can, 1/4 full at this point. Coursing through my veins are large quantities of various stimulants. Fast forward to ten minutes later. I'm twitching in like five different ways and trying to write at a rate of about 6 and a half characters per second while my brain moves at about one 9th of a character per second. It's very frantic. Fast forward another 20 minutes: I'm flipping out. But at least I'm awake...very awake. Another 20 minutes later, I'm done with the quiz (and the ), and I'm walking to my comp sci lab. Someone yells behind me and it echoes weirdly. To me, in my bawlsed out state of mind, this is really trippy. I turn my head to see who yelled and make eye contact with a giant statue of Robert Frost. Fucking scary. This is how I felt. That was the worst of it, though the first bit of computer science featured me burning through a ton of twitchy energy through moving my rolly chair around while trying to write code until I finally came off the high. My classmates probably now think I'm either insane or irrationaly ADD.

So here's the equation you can take from all this; tired me + japanese quiz + right before that quiz + nightmarish statue of Robert Frost = AHHHHHH!!!!

I am never doing drugs.

Actually, only stimulant drugs give the "trippy" and spastic effect you fear, pot is a depressant...

welcome to my life junior year-can't say i'm crazy about the name of that one though. "bawls" reminds me of the time(s) all the energy drinks i had made me (want to) puke, and it probably tastes like cough syrup.

I actually pulled my first all nighter last night and have been living off of energy water all day (fabulous substance) but dude...what's with those youtube videos? sleep so pwns them....and the last one is downright creepy...

I'll admit that, despite the zealous testimonials it got, cherry bawls did not taste that good. But god was I awake...

And bawls is an awesome -awesome name. But you're a girl, you wouldn't understand.

Reagarding the videos, like tons of other stuff here they're inside jokes, so don't bother asking.

oh no, i got the reference...but cherries? I guess the imagery works, but that is normally a girly thing i WOULD understand...

There's nothing to "get" about cherry...it just happened to be the flavor I was drinking.

The real inside joke is about sammy stephens, and you had to be here.

Energy drinks are bad news, JV. Just say no.

I was referencing the expression "popping a girls cherry"


What can I say some of us are just skilled at finding innappropriate content in mundane situations...(another word for us is "skilled at English")

Tim, this may be off topic, but was that a snowflake shaped tear?

Gavrich said...

No sir, just asterisk-shaped.
