Consider the plot of the film for just one moment. “Love interest assassin girl”, falls for “pimp assassin leader guy”. Classic forbidden love story. Leader guy, I’ll just call him “Bill”, knocks up Assassin girl. (Assassin girl henceforth will be called Kiddo) Kiddo finds out she is preggers and runs away with Bills bun in here oven. Bill is totally X ( and looks for her for like, a long time.
Bill finds Kiddo getting married to some whack wanker, which really doesn’t sit well with Billy’s wittle hart. So he decides he’s going to crash the wedding with a few of his buddies. Very similar to that movie the Wedding Crashers except in Kill Bill, people died, and tears were shed.
Bill clearly loves Kiddo. Kiddo clearly <3 Bill. Love is without a doubt a huge element of this film. So I don’t really see the point in pressing this perspective. (If you disagree with me explain why?)
So instead I intend on arguing that Bill was in fact the one who was unjustly treated. (x)
It is not possible to measure or quantify the love juice inside of the two frisky ninjas. Which means I can’t say Bill’s love > Kiddo’s love. I also don’t think you can fairly argue the inverse. Instead we have to look at the actions of the individual parties and see who screwed over who.
Clearly Bill ruined Kiddo’s Big day. Which seems on the surface totally f’ed up. But why did Bill ruin her big shot gun wedding?(x)
Kiddo after finding out she was pregnant with Bill’s baby, fled. Leaving Billy boy terribly saddened in a weird “Gata don’t take no shit” kind of way. He looked for her, his tall blonde angel, only to discover that she had faked her death and run off.
Bill is feeling kind of betrayed right now. I would be too. And being that he is an Assassin, he uses the only emotional cooping mechanism he knows how to use. Which involves him getting upset and listening to an iPod full of 808 & heartbreaks songs and maybe an Eminem track(x)(x). And everybody knows what happens when you mix betrayal, sad music, and marshal arts.
Word of the day: A coup de grâce.
Surely, violence is not the answer. And I don’t mean to justify numerous accounts of murder and attempted murder. Here comes the but. BUT when you live by the sword you die by the sword.
Kiddo wasn’t a tall blonde angel. She was a killing machine who happened to fall for her boss. A boss who really really didn’t like the fact that she left him high an dry. (que Beyonce music)
Don’t even get me started on how she didn’t even give the man the opportunity to leave the Pimp/Assassin game, for her and his kid. I suppose there is a lesson to be learn in all this drama. That lesson is this: If you intend on killing people for a living, don’t have unprotected sex. Because Kids, unprotected sex can get you shot in the face.

Iron Man is not a Super hero. He is a weapon. Heroes use tactfulness, humility, diplomacy, and valor. Perhaps, I missed these characteristics in the first 3 appearances of Iron Man (His solo movies and the Avengers movie). Feel free to disprove my assertion. But as Tony, he is a flamboyantly childish rich genius trying to out do his fathers legacy and as Iron Man he is a big flying gun with no respect for anyone other then himself.
And while Bruce Wayne doesn’t necessarily fly and shoot missiles, you might say these two “super” men fall into the same category of recklessness. But to say that Batman lacks the aforementioned characteristics is to completely miss the target. Iron Man is not simply Marvel’s version of “rich man fighting for social change”. He instead is a just a rich man fighting.
Surely, this doesn’t mean Mr. Stark is not a hero though, does it? I guess that really depends on how you define heroic. Is it heroic when Iron Man blows things up or Tony rambles on about his awesome selfishness? I don’t think it is. I suppose one could argue that Bruce Wayne as portrayed by Christopher Nolan’s movies has a bit of Patrick Bateman in him but upon closer look, it is clear to see this isn’t who Bruce Wayne really is. The image Bruce portrays to the world is just that, an image. And while it isn’t always obvious when he is pretending to be the playboy billionaire; we as true believers all know what’s really hood. We know that the Caped Crusader genuinely has the right motivations. We know this because as Batman, his motivations are and always will be for justice.
But what are Iron man’s motivations? What does Tony stand for other then affluence, arrogance and boredom? Tony Stark can never free the world of terror or violence because he himself is both these things to anyone with eyes on the other side of his weaponized exterior. The only thing Iron Man and justice have in common is their mallets. And when your only tool is a hammer all your problems look like nails.

The number one question on every Gluten Free intolerant College students mind is “How the hell am I going to eat?” ” How the fuck am I going to have a social life?” But remember you aren’t allergic to artificial light or water. Sure Gluten Intolerance sucks but it could be worse. So suck it up and lets survive college dining like champs.
The aim of this article is to not only answer that question but also answer any other concern you have about being gluten free in college. The article below will serve as the ultimate complete comprehensive guide to being gluten free in college. If you have any additional tips links or corrects we really hope you’ll share them in the comments below so that we can help out our gluten free comrades.
So Without Further Ado I Bring To You: The Ultimate Guide To Being Gluten Free In College
What is Gluten Intolerance?
Most of you all know what Gluten Intolerance but in the event that you just stumbled onto this article by chance I”ll give you the skinny on Gluten Intolerance. Individuals with Gluten Intolerance must consume a diet that excludes foods containing gluten.
What The Fuck Is Gluten and Why Does It Hate You?
Gluten is a protein found in wheat (including kamut and spelt), barley, rye, malts, and triticale. It is used as a food additive in the form of a flavoring, stabilizing, or thickening agent. It is often appears on labels as dextrin.
Video On How To Start Eating Gluten Free Video
What Happens If I Eat Gluten Anyway?
While there are people who avoid eating gluten due to adverse reactions, gluten is not an inherent “toxin” as many would have us believe. In other words Gluten Will Not Kill You! People with an immune-mediated wheat allergy and those with Celiac disease must follow a strict gluten-free diet, as gluten triggers harmful reactions. According to emedicinehealth.com adverse reactions of eating gluten for those who are intolerant to it include
- Gas, abdominal swelling, and bloating.
- Abnormal stools.
- Weight loss.
- Fatigue and weakness.
- Celiac disease may also lead to:
- Osteoporosis and other bone problems related to a lack of calcium absorption.
- Anemia caused by iron deficiency and/or folic acid deficiency.
- Infertility or having more than one miscarriage.
- Delayed onset of puberty.
- Frequent respiratory infections.
- Problems with memory and concentration.
- Irritability in children. And adults may show signs of depression.
Nerdy Scientific Breakdown: Those who experience gas and bloating in particular after eating wheat may actually be reacting to a form of carbohydrate in the wheat called fructans, rather than the gluten protein itself. For these latter groups, avoiding wheat and gluten may alleviate uncomfortable side effects
Take Notes: Eating wheat/gluten does not cause damage to any bodies cells nor trigger dangerous allergic reactions. This applies to both Gluten tolerant and intolerant. For those who can eat gluten, gluten is just one of many food proteins encountered in the course of a mixed diet, neither detrimental nor essential to good health.
Is There A Reason To Avoid Gluten If I Am Not Allergic?
If you tolerate gluten and enjoy it, there’s no compelling reason to avoid it. If you don’t tolerate it or just prefer not to eat it, there’s no compelling reason for you to keep it in your diet (other than, perhaps, convenience or self hatred).
A lot of Gluten Free advocates will tell you eliminating Gluten from your diet is beneficial to your health. This isn’t necessarily true. Many people however find that cutting out gluten helps them avoid the temptation of the numerous empty-calorie, high-glycemic, processed snack foods that they want to eliminate. Others, however, find that cutting out gluten only to replace it with gluten-free versions of these same empty-calorie, high-glycemic, processed snack foods is of no benefit for weight loss, energy levels, or improved health.
Take Notes: A “gluten-free” claim is by no means an indication that a food is more natural, healthful, or lower in calories.
What Food Is Actually Gluten Free?
The term gluten-free generally is used to indicate a supposedly harmless level of gluten rather than a complete absence. The exact level at which gluten is harmless for people with celiac disease is uncertain and controversial.
- Nerdiness: A 2008 systematic review tentatively concluded that consumption of less than 10 mg of gluten per day for celiac disease patients is unlikely to cause histological abnormalities, although it noted that few reliable studies had been conducted.
Regulation of the label, gluten-free, varies widely by country. In the United States, the FDA issued proposed regulations in 2007 limiting the use of “gluten-free” in food products to those with less than 20 parts per million of gluten.
Can I Drink Alcohol If I’m Gluten Free?
The short answer is Yes. The long answer is Not like everyone else. People diagnosed with celiac disease may experience symptoms when drinking distilled alcoholic beverages. Therefore, if you are Gluten Free and interested in drinking check with a manufacturer about the ingredients that have been used in a hard liquor, and to proceed with caution if choosing to drink a liquor that is made with wheat, barley, oats, or rye.
Can I Drink Beer?
College and beer go together like love and gay marriage or perhaps I should say donuts and coffee : P However, nearly all beers are brewed with malted barley or wheat and will contain gluten. There are sorghum and buckwheat-based gluten-free beers on the market but I seriously doubt they will be playing with these types of beer at your local beer pong championship.
There are also beers known for their low-gluten levels; however there is disagreement over the use of gluten products in brewed beverages.
List of Alcohols The Are Consider Gluten Free
- Wine – check out this excellent article by Rachel Begun, MS, RD from The Gluten Free RD about how there is a slight chance of your wine actually being contaminated and the questions you need to ask about your wine to make sure it’s safe.
- GF Beers – generally made from Sorghum and should be clearly marked gluten-free.
- Hard Cider – made from apples, here’s a list you could check out and verify that these companies definitely offer gluten-free hard cider before making your purchase.
- Hard alcohol – now this varies. Not all hard alcohol is gluten-free. Obviously you’ll need to avoid alcohol made from things like rye or wheat. Some people will tell you that anything distilled, even when made from gluten-baring grains, is gluten-free and yet there are folks who say they’ve gotten sick from them. I really don’t know what to tell you. If I drink hard alcohol, I try to stick to pure
- Tequila pure Rum as both are made from non-gluten ingredients. Spirits made without any grain such as brandy, wine, mead, cider, sherry, port, rum, tequila, and vermouth generally do not contain gluten. But again, you’ll always want to double check that there are no flavors or additives in your choice of alcohol that may contain gluten. Please note: At any point a manufacturer could change their recipe making my list obsolete. So, do your homework.
- Champagne is also an option for you as it’s a type of wine. Again, I’d just double check that your brand of choice is gluten-free.
- Another very low alcohol choice is Kombucha. It’s a fermented tea that is effervescent and is very low in alcohol. It can be purchased at places like Whole Foods or made at home and is actually very good for gut health.
What Can I Eat In The Dining Hall?
Let’s be real for a second. College dining hall food is mediocre at best. So don’t beat yourself up about the fact that the food may or may not be Gluten Free. On another note, the key to eating anywhere and being gluten free is staying safe. If you don’t trust the food DO NOT EAT IT. Feeling like absolute garbage because you decided to eat the garbage served in the dining hall is not worth it.
If the food served doesn’t have an ingredient list then I would avoid it. I’d say stick to the salad bar but I must mention that I’ve heard horror stories about stray croutons.
Take notes: There is one thing I strongly suggest: if the people you talk to do not address your needs to your satisfaction, do not acknowledge the cross contamination issue, do not make it completely safe and feasible for you to eat in their cafeteria – DO NOT DO IT.
What Should I Do If My College Doesn’t Have A Gluten Free Menu?
Unfortunately, school policies and general knowledge and accommodation of Celiac Disease are not really up to the level we’d all like. Many schools have mandatory meal plans that do not consider the needs of Celiac students and do not consider cross contamination to be an issue. If you want to pursue the cafeteria route, try the FAAN College Network.
You can also speak with your schools dietitian, food service manager or other administrator in charge of food.
Your next step should be going to the Dean of the college, explaining the situation in terms of what eating Gluten does to your quality of life and insisting your mandatory meal plan be waived.
Take Notes: Parental assistance can often be helpful in this endeavor as schools often see them as the money bags and the ones to please.
What Should I Tell My Roommates
If your living gluten-free, explaining it to others might be second nature by now. But when it comes to informing a roommate who will share living (and maybe cooking) space, clear communication is especially essential.
I would recommend having an “elevator speech” ready to explain your condition to roommates and other new friends, in a few sentences. Here’s an example of what you might say:
“I follow a gluten-free diet…no, it’s not a weight loss diet. It’s the diet to treat a condition that damages the lining of the small intestine and prevents it from absorbing parts of food that are important for staying healthy. If I eat anything with gluten (which comes from wheat, rye, oats, and barley products) I get really really sick. So I avoid foods that have it in the ingredients or have been touching it.”
What Kind of Gluten Free Snacks Should I Keep In My Dorm?
- Sweet Potato Fries
- Frozen Grapes- Debbie from Words to Eat By convinced me to try them with this post and I have been happily munching on frozen grapes ever since.
- Marinated Carrots- Buy sliced carrot coins and marinate them overnight with your favorite low-sugar vinaigrette
- Natural Peanut Butter on Celery
- Toasted Pumpkin Seeds or Roasted Sunflower Seeds-
- Apple Butter on a Rice Cake- Take notes: Quaker Rice Cakes are NOT gluten-free because of cross-contamination issues.
- Orange Slices-
- KIND bars-
- Gluten Free Cold Cerea
- Chocolate Covered Dried Apricots/Bananas- Microwave 2 oz. bittersweet chocolate in 30 sec. intervals stirring until melted (or use double-boiler). When it is throughly melted, dip the apricots (halfway) or bananas (I do the whole slice). Place the fruit on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper; sprinkle with crushed nuts. Put the cookie sheet in the refrigerator until the chocolate is set.
- Dried Fruit with Nuts-
- Salsa/Pico de Gallo and Chips- I buy Muir Glen’s Cilantro Garlic Salsa. You can also make nachos with gluten free Barbecue sauce or salsa (see Mrs. G.F.’s nachos)
- Hard-Boiled Egg-
- Pesto with Almond/Pecan Nut-Thin Crackers- Pesto can be made casein-free very easily with almonds, walnuts, etc (see my Cilantro Pesto recipe). For crackers, try Almond or Pecan Nut Thin Crackers or Mary’s Gone Crackers. If you want to try your hand at making homemade crackers- Ginger Lemon Girl has a recipe for crispy cheddar crackers.
- Apricot Sorbet
- Tomatoes, cucumbers or avocados with Salt and balsamic vinegar
- Waffle Sticks with Natural Peanut/Almond/Cashew Butter
- Larabars- These are expensive like all health bars, but they are wonderful when you are in a pinch and very hungry! I really like them, but my two year old won’t eat them yet. You can buy them at Whole foods or at Amazon.
- Chickpeas/Garbanzo Beans- Gluten Free Gobsmacked has a recipe for Fried Chickpeas. Chickpeas are packed with protein and they have a high fiber content, which prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after consuming this yummy snack.
- Corn Tortilla with Pinto Beans/Guacamole- Corn Tortillas are a staple for celiacs and the gluten-intolerant, so they had to make the list! Karina’s Kitchen has a recipe for Joey’s Kicked up Rockin’ Guacamole
- Lettuce Wrap- Bibb Lettuce with tuna (try Cindalou’s recipe); or wrap hummus in lettuce like Vegan Momma.
- Gluten Free Cookies, Muffins, or Breads
- Juice Popsicles- Elise at Simply Recipes has a how-to on making juice popsicles.
- Brown Rice Tortilla Wraps
What Kind Of Gluten Free Gear Should I Keep In My Dorm Dorm-Stocking
According to college students living with celiac disease, it’s much easier to stay gluten-free if you bring the following equipment along. Even if you’re following a meal plan, being able to make some meals at home gives you a lot more flexibility. Since some of the appliances may not be permitted in dormitory rooms, check first with the Residence Life office to find out the school’s policies.
- Microwave Many dorms already have communal microwaves, but these appliances, when shared, can get pretty dirty and thus could be a source of cross-contamination. Having a personal microwave allows your student to prepare his or her own foods safely. If it’s shared with a roommate, be sure to lay down ground rules about keeping it clean.
- A micro-fridge. If the dorm has a communal refrigerator, your student can keep his or her foods separated, in labeled boxes and zip-close bags.
- Toaster or toaster oven These are usually not allowed in dorm rooms but in a shared kitchen, they’re a great asset. Stephanie, a blogger at celiacsatcollege.com, got permission to store her toaster in the dining hall kitchen for safe fallback meals. Hers was bright red and clearly labeled so that no one else would use it.
- Small rice cooker or pasta cooker
- Pots, pans, plates and eating/cooking utensils If your student shares some cooking facilities with others, having a separate supply of these is a big time-saver. Otherwise, they’ll have to wash dishes before and after using them to avoid cross-contamination.
- A big supply of cleaning supplies, dishcloths and dishtowels. These are also life-saving in a shared kitchen, to keep gluten-free cookware and dishes safe. Include enough so that your student won’t have to do laundry frequently.
- Large plastic storage boxes with lids. Having separate storage makes sure gluten-free items don’t “wander” or accidentally get cross-contaminated.
- A small blender: for smoothies
- Brita or Pur Pitcher: Save the planet and space by buying a water filter rather than trying to store 20 bottles of water in your fridge or in my room
If You Are Living On Campus, Have An Emergency Plan.
Make sure you have a plan, if become sick. Visit the school’s health office and the nearest pharmacy and establish an account so that you can get prescription medication. It’s also helpful to have a relationship with a local physician and/or gastroenterologist who can treat you if the need arises.
Take Notes: Under the Health Information Privacy Protection Act3, once you’re 18, you parents are not permitted to access your health information unless you grant them written permission to do so. Make sure these permissions are in place with the health care centers so they can contact your family.

Finding a new roommate can be quite stressful. You’re basically auditioning for a new friend who will be meters from where you sleep. If you already live in a property, you’re inviting someone into your personal space and you may still be getting over losing your previous roommate. Most find the whole process very awkward and don’t know what to ask, or how to choose. If it comes down to two great candidates, it can be very difficult to pick the right one if each has their own pros and cons (this is a big decision after all). Below, we look at a 5 Things To Look For in a College Roommate. Hopefully this help you decide on that new housemate or at least gives you a few factors to consider:
1: Trust Your Gut
Sometimes you’ll just know when you meet someone that you don’t like them. Alternatively you may find that you have instant chemistry with them. Decide whether you’re someone who has good instincts or if you’re someone who gets too caught up in the moment and doesn’t think long-term. Ask your friends and family to help you decide which one you are as they may provide some perspective. If you can’t tell for sure whether you like someone, make an excuse to meet up again before you make your decision.
Do you and a candidate get on instantly, and have the rapport of two people who have known each other for years?
If you find yourself already joking and comfortable around each other to poke fun at each other, then you may indeed have found the right person.
It doesn’t matter too much if you do initially struggle to find a conversation to talk about, but this might be an indicator that this person isn’t the right fit.
Though it sounds a little prejudiced, you may be someone who can go on how they present themselves; on the other hand, many great roommates can often be complete opposites of each other.
3: Will They Pay Rent On Time?
This principle is a little easier to measure. Using a simple tenant application form or by simply asking, you can judge whether they’ll be able to easily afford rent. Though you can’t quite ask what else they spend their money on or whether they save, you can make a good guess from what they say or how they present themselves again. This is a very important factor to consider; perhaps even the most important. Even the most harmonious and closest of roommates will get into fights if one can’t pay their rent and jeopardizes the other’s living arrangements.
Their job may also play a factor into their kind of lifestyle. Will they work the same hours as you, or will they be up when you want to sleep? How will this suit you if you need to study or work from home?
Sometimes it’s always handy to live with someone who works or studies similarly to you or are on the same course at university, so your schedules synch up.
Does it bother you that you won’t see much of each other if they live a busy life already? If you’re happy to find anyone quickly, this might be a good thing if you’re not looking for someone to particularly close to.
5: Additional Benefits
If you’re on the edge of deciding on someone or stuck between two people, consider some additional benefits they may bring to the table.Are they particular good at cooking? Do you have a lot shared interests? Do they get a discount from their job which they’ll be happy to share with you?

Below are 11 ways to be unremarkably average. A guide to living and dying a very very boring unadventurous standard life. Please be adviced that following the instructions below will lead you having a C life rather than an A+ life. BTW the illustrations in this post are by Gavin Aung Than @ ZenPencils.com <—— Show him some love
1. Accept what people tell you at face value
Don’t explore your spirituality, sexuality, or basic reality. Santa is real until someone says he is not and politicians never lie.
2. Don’t question authority
The way things are, just so happen to be, the way things will always be. If you are uncomfortable with the structure of things oh well. If you want to be average, than you have to stay in line and keep your head down.
3. Go to College because you’re suppose to, not because you want to learn something.
College is a means to getting a job and checking higher education of your to-do list. It is not and I repeat is not a place to LEARN! That means no learn about your self, the world, or the wonderful diverse people and things that inhabit it.
4. Sit at a desk 40 hours a week for an average of 10 hours of productive work
A good solid rule for living an average life is to not go above and beyond. Find a job after college and stay under the radar in every way possible. Getting pigeonholed at a decent job is your goal. Go get’em tiger.
5. Go overseas once or twice in your life, always to somewhere safe and easy.
If exploring the world is something you have on your to do list than be sure not to go anywhere wildly different from your comfort zone.
Take notes: If the place you are vacationing doesn’t have a Starbucks, McDonalds, Amazing AC and Wi-fi, avoid it at all cost. (Check out travelhacking.org if you are actually looking for a awesome above average remarkable traveling experience for cheap)
6. Get the largest mortgage you qualify for and spend 30 years paying for it.
I mean who doesn’t want to be locked into one house for the rest of their natural lives?
7. Don’t try to learn another language, everyone else will eventually learn English.
The truth is growing your mind and your understanding of others generally something reserved for the remarkable. Sure it sounds nice and all but think about all the work it requires. In all honesty watching Netflix while not necessarily the most mental stimulating is without a doubt easier.
If it ain’t easy don’t do it.
8. Think about writing a book but never do it.
In fact, you should think about doing a lot of things but never do them. Doing things is for amazingly talented extraordinary people. And you my plain Jane are not the aforementioned.
9. Think about starting a business but never do it.
Starting a business is a risk. And risks are for the courageous. Better off playing it safe my simple friend.
10. Don’t stand out or draw attention to yourself
Being noticed is nice but sometimes it causes people to pay attention to you or worse you might even feel like a leader. Heaven forbid. Just make sure to never dress to fashionably or to strange.
11. Jump through hoops. Check off boxes.
What could be more fulfilling than doing what is required. Being average is your thing. In fact it is your most valuable skill.
And last but not least

Have you ever wonder how to find a date in the library, sure you have. Well lucky for you Bright Futura is on the up and up and is ready to give you the break down. You can thank us later!
Location, location, location. Scoping out a seat in the library is the key element to landing a date. Chances are, you won’t find a hottie while you’re hiding in the corner at a table for one tucked behind shelves of books. Know how to scope prime library real estate to get a date.
Below are few situations you might find yourself in while perusing the library.
1. Cutie in Power Outlet Proximity
Any cuties near a communal outlet? This is a perfect excuse to pick a spot to plug in (your laptop) close to a cutie. If sockets are individual and there are many taken, ask if you can charge up for a few minutes. This can give you the opportunity to spark some conversation. If everything seems pretty empty, just try to grab a spot close-by.
Take Notes: If you are interested in meeting someone who could possibly be a potential mate be sure to look presentable. You don’t have to wear heels but save the pajamas for the dorm room.
2. Window Wonderful
People that sit next to the window are more likely to glance outside (a stunning statistic done by yours truly). Those who are glancing around are less engrossed in their studies and might be more open to conversing while in the library. It is true that a person can be looking away in deep thought, but you can usually tell by facial expression. If someone has any sort of constipation face or furrowing brow, do not approach.
3. Café Cutie
Is there any seating by a café? This high traffic area can increase your number of easy-on-the-eye passers-by. Try to sit next to a table with open seating around then start working. Glance up every so often to check for hotties in your net of empty tables.
Trying to find an actual book in a library? How are we supposed to remember how the system works when we learned decades ago in elementary school? Although it doesn’t take a brainiac to figure out, some parts to finding a specific book can get confusing. Scan the shelves to see if any beauties are walking through looking for something. Dropping a comment about finding books or asking a question are conversation starters.
Basics to attracting attractive bate: Don’t be afraid to walk around and get the lay of library land. Don’t be afraid to talk to people, unless they are obviously so deep in thought Rapunzel’s hair won’t help them climb out.
Always sit next to an open table. If that isn’t possible, use limited resources to your advantage by asking to share table space or an outlet.
Steer clear from overly obvious questions: “do you know when the library closes?” If your scoping for dates in the library, chances are you’re looking for smarties who won’t fall for lines like those.
Take Note: Don’t forget to actually get work done!
You don’t want to be that person in the library just trying to land dates and not doing any work. Isn’t it annoying when people are walking around the gym talking to people without actually working out? Same rule applied here. You’ve got a brief window of time to work out where you’ll sit, but once you do, commit. Glance up only in between working or you’ll find yourself the creeper in the library no one wants to sit near.
