college majors

clothes of the majors I’ve met

English: stylish enough, glasses, won’t look me in the eye when I wear crocs, lots of things on their keychains

Computer science: the hoody-jeans squad, did CS so they would never have to wear a suit

philosophy: tank-tops, no shoes, pajama bottoms

art students: either rocking that depression sweater or making some sort of statement I missed

Psychology: leggings or sweatpants, pastels, long hair and messy top-knots

engineering: same as CS, bags under their eyes, lot’s of pins

International relations: mostly H&M and going hard for some unknown European flavor

archeology/anthro: beads & warm colors, always give me the vibe they would rather be covered in dirt right now

law school: forced into suits when required, otherwise have 2 day old makeup on or 7 o’clock beard shadow

teaching/nursing: look more comfortable than me, practical shoes

aerospace: how do all of you own the same einstein shirt?

history/humanities: left any sense of fashion in the 18th century, baseball caps, forget to wear socks with their shoes

business school:

just saying but most iconic front women from rock/music history have had lesbian relationships. janis joplin? joan jett? josephine baker? debbie harry? amy winehouse? the godmother, the QUEEN, of all rock music sister rosetta tharpe? ALL have expressed in public (or private) their attraction for women as well as men. lesley gore, the 60s pop artist who gave us “you don’t own me”? a lesbian. ma rainey, a blues artist who gave us one of the first recordings of actual, non-subtextual lesbian content in “prove it on my blues”. and these are just the women who are, for the most part, well-known for their music and image. women who love women have done so much for music, and this is most likely only scratching the surface

College Majors as lines from Hamilton

  • Philosophy: You want a revolution, I want a revelation
  • Theology: I'm searching and scanning for answers in every line

Today, my history professor made the mistake of announcing that she believed that you could categorize people into two groups: those that preferred Sound of Music and those that preferred Grease.

I have never heard a room of history majors become so outraged.

“–Grease SUCKS–”

“–excuse me but have you heard of our Lord and Savior PHANTOM OF THE OPERA–”

“–don’t talk to me unless it’s about Fiddler on the Roof–”

“–BOOK OF MORMON. BOOK OF MORMON. BOOK OF MORMON–

–did you mean Les Mis?–

And, me, in the corner with my Newsies shirt on (which was a perfect coincidence):

–neWSIES IS BEST–

-It’s a highly respectable and necessary career
