Our residence halls open Sunday, so this week has been busy. I totally missed posting last week. So if this list seems scattered and random, welcome to what’s left of my mind this week.
Last week can be summed up by the Olympics: First, shame on Ryan Lochte et al. You are not cute. You are not boys being boys. You are liars and a disgrace, and you should be punished more than you will be, and the fact that you will get away with a slap on the wrist for criming while white is what’s wrong with America.
For the record, here’s how real Olympians behave:
Abbey D’Agostino and Nikki Hamblin help each other finish the race. This makes me want to run like the wind.
Gabby Douglas is my favorite. I love her intensity and the high standards she holds herself to. I love that she is tough AND vulnerable. That is hard balance for anyone to pull off, much less someone so young. I despise that the same people I saw laughing at the swimmers’ “tussle” are the same people I saw badmouthing her for not putting her hand on her heart. You want to be patriotic? Be just half as awesome as she is with an American flag on your chest. She’s good. Some might even say “perfect.”
Holy crap, Usain Bolt.
There were so many more. The Olympics always make me want to have cable again.
Here are my favorite five this week:
2. How each Myers-Briggs type reacts to stress. I can’t speak for everyone, but the INTJ info is spot on for me.
4. How well do I know Lutheran slang? 100% actually. The recap said, “You have grown up in the Lutheran church.” Or, I have attended one for three years and I’ve taken four semesters of Latin.
5. The cutest thing on the Internet this week – baby sloth sounds.
What are some of your highlights?
