If you’ve been out of the dating world for a while, you really only need to know one thing- NO ONE TALKS ON THE PHONE ANYMORE. Entire relationships are formed, developed, nurtured, and sometimes ended, through texting.
And crafting genius texts can be tough, especially in the early part of the relationship, where one wrong word or unsexy emoticon can derail everything!
–In a new survey by “TSB Magazine”, single men said that not knowing what to say in texts is actually THE most frustrating aspect of dating right now. In fact, they have full posts about how to text women to ellicit a response!
Who knew guys got as stressed (if not more) as women about this! There’s even more on this site about it!
Here’s the full list of guy dating frustrations:
#1.) Not knowing what to say in texts.
#2.) Bad or boring conversation on dates.
#3.) Awkwardness trying to go for the first kiss.
#4.) Approaching women in the first place.
#5.) Having women see you as a friend, not a love interest.
#6.) Hitting it off with a woman but then finding out she’s interested in someone else.
Do you agree guys?
Happy Friday! Here’s an awesome cover to LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It.” Now, you’re probably skeptical since there are 13249078230948 covers of songs we play on youtube, but this guy is seriously talented.
Noah takes this fun dancy song and makes it serious. I want to say LMFAO just got owned.
What do you think of it?
Jacob stops by the show today to chat with me and play a few songs, including a cover of Band’s “The Weight”
Listen here and then come out and hear him live tonight at 8 for Party on the Patio at Ozona! Rain or shine, the drinks are cheap!
Does Mama really know best?!
I say, YES!
I feel like with the invention of social media, I now know how crazy my first boyfriend really was. Would I ever consider marrying him? Absolutely not. True, I was smitten with him in high school, but thankfully I’ve gotten wiser since then.
While they might not pick the perfect person, my parents could make a decent choice. My mom and I don’t always agree on looks, we have totally different tastes in that department, but quality wise, they know what would make a good partner.
I’d totally go with my parents on this one! But which would YOU rather?
The beginning of May marks the end of another college semester- a time when students frantically cram for exams and professors enter into possibly the biggest power trip of their careers.
Now I’m not ragging on professors.. in fact, when I went to A&M, I had one of the COOLEST professors ever. (Poli sci kids, I’m talking about Cary Nederman)
I just don’t see a problem with emailing your professors toward the end of the semester because you care about your grade, especially when you’re told there’s going to be another extra credit assignment and you’re .12 points from an A.
Why do they even assign those point grades? Why not just say 89?!
This is the scenario that a listener emailed me about. She says she has an 89.3 and when she emailed her prof about something she mentioned in class regarding a last minute point opportunity, she received this little gem:
I mentioned in class that I hate and detest last minute begging and it makes me very sad to have curved the final exam by 12 points since I felt you deserved one more chance for extra points. I’m sorry but you had five months to earn the grade you received. To grant you extra credit is immoral, unethical, and illegal. (Federal laws)
I’d be happy to take that away, which I still can do, and it would lower your grade significantly. In fact, grades are not finalized yet, and I still maybe just have to remove the curve.
*The names in this email have been slightly (and hilariously) altered to protect the individuals involved*
Now that’s just too much. I get that profs are inundated by these messages at the end of the semester, but it’s not begging if you have a valid question. And I would like to point out, if the curve was taken away, *Melissa would still have a B.. she just wanted to make sure she wasn’t missing out on something that could earn her that extra .12.
So her response?
“So… is that a no?”
In honor of this brave individual, I want to hear your professor horror stories. Time to take a break from studying and rant and rave now that the semester is almost over!
What’s the worst thing you’ve ever encountered in a class?
I was working in Houston, taking classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I had to miss a class where a major assignment was handed out, but I told the prof in advance I couldn’t make it, and set up an appointment with him (at his convenience) to get it. After working on this bad boy for 2 weeks, I went in for our mandatory final rough draft meeting, and he told me I had done everything wrong.
Turns out.. he’d given me the wrong assignment. And instead of grading me on the one he gave me, he let me have a full two days to complete the “right one.”
Yeah, between studying for finals and a full time job in another city, want to take a guess at how many @*!&s I gave on that? I think he ended up being pretty nice in the grading, but that experience haunts me.
So instead of ripping your profs online like I did, just tell me your stories here!
