Cats in the Cradle
Goodness, I missed the first birthday of My Life in Chapters! Well my preferred method of celebration is a roast, so I am going to roast my own blog—ground breaking, I know. Of course, it will be an unordered list, with spelling errors… Alex Roasts My Life in Chapters I spell like a drunk monkey Seriously, it’s not great The blog is so egotistical that I deserves a reality...
Well Alex, I have to poop– William Lloyd Card (saying goodbye)
Today I am sitting outside posting on Tumblr while my friends do homework and generally enjoy the weather. I do not share their affinity for this weather… I sunburn easily. Easier than becoming a myspace user (yeah, that easy) and like signing up for myspace the result isn’t pretty… But this post is not about my dermatological woes, or spelling errors. I am known as the...
Do not be afraid of change. Change is what brings joy to our lives, always...
Nerd love, whilst beautiful, is not for me. I think the reason is that while I find comfort among the nerdy crowd, I do not find complete alliance. I like being in the ‘popular’ crowd and sharing interests with them as well as the counter-culture. Now I am not a contrarian who wishes to belong to neither group. I wish to belong to both. To be with people who share my interests no...

An actual SMS excerpt between Megan and me.
Alex: Marvel is less attractive than Cato, so I didn't pay attention to him.
Alex: His biceps are whimpy compared to cato. Marvel's smirk makes him look douchy, Cato's douchy smirk is still hot. Marvel: 0 Cato: 8,457
Alex: The smirk was worth several points.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?– A. A. Card (Pondering the log lobbing prowess of various woodland denizens)
Resturant Drink Orders
Server at Sander's 1906: ...and what'll you have to drink?
Alexander Card: Oh I'll have the water, with a splash of under 21.
Noon to Two
I find myself in the library pacing the halls in roughly thirty minute intervals nearly every Tuesday and Thursday. I constantly tell myself that I should begin work on these projects much before this time crunched slot but the feedback given on the results never prompts a change in behavior. The many people around me are blocked out by my yearn for focus and desire to improve the final product....
Putting Hipsters In Their Place
I am not a Hipster. I act like one from time to time; but were to find that title appended to me, it wouldn’t find it fitting. See one of the reasons I would not align with a hipster is I actually like commonly ‘un-liked’ things. I read an article about comma placement in twenty-first century American English. (as evidenced by the sentence beginning: “I act…”) I...
LauraElizabeth.: college is for learning. :) →
laurahansen26: the most important thing that i have learned in college so far?.. how to accept people. i’m not even going to pretend that i don’t judge people, because i do.. i grew up around very (at times) judgmental people who grew up in a time in which that frame of mind was much more acceptable. but after…
LauraElizabeth.: HACKED. →
laurahansen26: okay, i’m not sure when people decided that they need to stop using dictionaries, but they should really start that back up.. 1.) to hack into - to break into (a server, web site, etc.) from a remote location to steal or damage data; to write or refine computer programs skillfully; to use one’s…
I am sitting in the Library at the University of North Dakota wondering what the hell I am doing here. I know it is the World’s premier Air Traffic Control instruction university, but sometimes I wonder why I chose Air Traffic Control as the plan for my life. Why not somthing else? [[MORE]] For as long as I can remember I have lived an incredibly well rounded life. My high school...
Wanna Sleep Wednesdays.
My body decided to feel groggy all morning so I slept through my alarm, and three episodes of family guy on Netflix that usually wake me up. So now I have twenty minutes (and counting) to do the following: 9:40-9:45 post schedule on Tumblr 9:45-9:46 regret decision to go on Tumblr 9:46-9:52 frantically run around doing hygienic tasks 9:52-9:54 get dressed 9:54-9:55 collect things for class...
I’m considering faking cholera.– A. Aldred Card (On the polite way to decline an invitation.)
megantriumphant asked: You have the best 'About Me' ever. "I fly planes and eat ice cream." Seriously. I love you.
laurahansen26: i now have one follower. does that mean i need to start ACTUALLY using this? because i definitely do not know how.. or why.. or what, for that matter. i really only signed up so i could check the blogs i already was checking on a daily basis. social media problems at their finest.. (#socialmediaprobs) Dear Laura, Probably. Just post/reblog stuff. If it’s terrible no one...
meganagold: An expendable worry. Another “thing” to trouble over, to put effort in to. Giving up could be so easy. Don’t put your pain in anyone else’s hands. Don’t let them get too close. If they see what you really are and still won’t run away, make the decision yourself. Push. - -meg
I learned how to swear in Latin just for his arrival.– A. Aldred Card (on Hospitality)

I recently filled out a ‘Boyfriend Application’ just for laughs. The following are what I listed as “Special Skills That are Relevant to a Relationship:” 1) Conversational German 2) Jazz Sousaphone 3) Spells Ridiculous with an “E” 4) Non-Jazz Sousaphone 5) Can draw a decent banana 6) Average Driving Talent 7) Extra-Average Flying Talent 8) Good Shouter...
I’m one of the luckiest people I know. I get to have one fairly amazing life, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything. Want proof? Consider the highlights of the past 30 days: - Flew a plane - Learned German from a German Citizen - Video Called my family - Traveled by myself to New York City - Took two road trips through the beautiful Dakotas - Traveled by myself to Minneapolis -...
Just Dance, gonna be okay. Da-da-do-do, Just Dance. Spin that record babe!...– Lady GaGa reminding us that whatever happens we need to keep dancing and not let it bother us!
For My Favorite Custer Resident....
Realizing you lost something special is quite difficult. We are often spoiled by the presence of beautiful things and people. It breaks my heart when those beautiful people in my life are suffering hardships and are unable find answers to their emotional questions. Always remember the ones who help are not always the ones with the right thing to say or the right gesture of kindness, however they...
