|"Without even realizing it he'd fallen into one of those Let's-Be-Friends Vortexes, the bane of nerdboys everywhere. These relationships were love's version of a stay in the stocks, in you go, plenty of misery guaranteed and what you got out of it besides bitterness and heartbreak nobody knows. Perhaps some knowledge of self and women.|

|10 months later, he comes crawling back, to an audience that's likely to consist of no more than two people. He is an adult now, a professional; despite pipe dreams of a Master's or God forbid a Phd, he is likely done with school. Sort of, but not really. He is, after all, a substitute teacher and Lord willing a regular, full time teacher some time in the near future. At any rate, anything that could be considered part of the preamble to his adult life is complete, and he returns to his college-age blog to post the following:|
Last week, in one of the classes I subbed for, I mentioned that my name is Mr. Eding (as you'd expect a sub to do) and immediately one of the students called out, "That's funny, my last name is Beveridge." Upon closer study of the class list, I realized that not only was this true, but we also had two students with the last name of Cofee and Coffey and a student surnamed Failing.
Last names are awesome, I have determined.
|Nearly six months sans entry. Hmm. So much for that? I had thought it was just an RA thing. Unfortunately, that seems not to be the case. I wouldn't hold my breath for a next entry, either. Gah, I swore never to say that I was quitting or that Xanga is dead or anything like that. But here I am, perchance.|
