You mean Johnny Depp isn't going to make a visit to your school?! Sad times.

Congratulations for getting into psychology! I took a course in psychology last year at uni and really enjoyed it and I'm no mathematical marvel either. I'm sure thhe fact you're naturally gifted in english will serve you well, especially if the grades are based on essays.

Join the club. Today I got my hair caught in a revolving door, sometimes I think my life is an episode of 'I Love Lucy'.

Sometimes I think ears are as pointless a part of the male anatomy as nipples. Seriously though, judging by your boyfriend's jealous reaction he really, really likes you.

I wish! There are too many menopausal women in my school for him to even consider coming! You've got to love my school's attempts though of getting us to socialise with people and their idea of "fun" is sadly different to mine. Mine would consist of a day in bed and not even considering rising from the lair until noon.

Thank you! I'm glad you found it good, I'm really considering a career in pyschological profiling if I don't end up becoming a divorce lawyer. My grades are based on both, I prefer doing coursework though than writing under pressure. I think the home-based essay part will be my strength. I'm a slow writer and that tends to be my downfall in exams.

Just got back from being stuck in the Philosophy building while it decided to storm and hail outside.
After only about thirty minutes of heavy rain, this darn campus turns into a lake.
Now I'm soaking wet and I wish I could jump into a dryer because I'm pretty sure it also dropped twenty degrees outside.

JTIS.

I hear you, my school used to encourage 'student bonding' and 'interpersonal communication' and various other bullsh*t terms. We had a 'health fair' every year where the slogan was 'Be All You Can Be' and 'Simply the Best' was the theme tune, even Oprah would have cringed at the cheese factor. I guess they have to do it to tick some box on a checklist from the local authority. I considered that week an extra holiday.

That sounds like an interesting career! If you have an analytical mind (which you probably do since you're so strong in english) you'll be very good at that. I always do much better with essays than exams (I'm a panicker). The only thing that helps with it is practice sadly.

Please keep sharing, Dani.

We just "felt a little concerned."

Strange . . . The Universe doesn't seem to have exploded yet due to this discussion...

Oh God, last year was really terrible. But we did win in 2007 in overtime on the first play...

This has gotten ridiculous.

He has been happily married for 10 years. He is a family friend. I know his wife and his kids. He knows my parents. EVERY girl that has ever had him as a teacher thinks he's gorgeous, and thats fine. It has never once gotten in the way of our relationship. The other teacher I am close with (significantly closer, actually) knows all about this and she isn't weirded out at all-- and she's his COWORKER.

The sex poem was very, very ambiguous and vague. It was very tastefully done and nowhere close to explicit. I was excited because I've known and deeply respected him for a long time and anytime someone shares his or her work, it opens a new area of vulnerability that can really benefit a relationship. That's what this was-- I simply got to know him better through his writing and in the process, I was able to give him feedback. That's all he was looking for-- a professional opinion on the quality of his work.

Although I appreciate the concern here (trust me, I do), I think that a lot of people are jumping to a lot of conclusions. However, I should have censored my post more carefully and realized that it would come off as inappropriate. If I thought that it was at all innapproriate, I would never have posted it. The fact that I did shows that my mind wasn't working that way at all-- I like to think you guys know I'm smart enough to keep myself out of deep waters if I can see the possible bad reaction.

I just think this is insane, I really do. :/

Take Marissa for example! She's heard more about this guy than all of you combined and she's not weirded out.

....I suck, I know. And gladly!

Was that before or after the school bully took some poor schlep out to the playground and shook him down for his lunch money while the teachers looked the other way and pretended not to notice?

Joking aside, I'm not creeped out because I know the details of the situation.

You're still a harlot, though.

Ugh ugh ugh. This was my day. Except, for a little added fun, my dorm just got a new boiler system that takes ten minutes to heat up your shower. YAY WEDNESDAY. This is why they charge 50k a year, apparently.
