    I'm not a sports fan, but I'm considering pretending to be one to impress a girl.

    What sorts of drama?
    "Sports fans" is just an expression here.

    Just weird drama about benefits and stuff. The Ph.D. students are having some pow-wow in the grad student office to discuss how the department is screwing them, and they kicked us Masters students out, and so we're hanging out in the hallway and talking about musicals. (Because we're musicologists.)

    Hi, I'm Rose. I love music, alcohol, pointless Internet debates and being a snob about my choices in entertainment. I write a lot. You can read some of my writing at Autostraddle.com, the best site for LBTQ women on the Internet, where I am a staff writer. Or the funhouse that is my tumblr. I also write music sometimes, and post the better fruits of my labors on my SoundCloud.

    Well, if we're talking rugby or baseball, you had me at "sports". If you're talking football or American football, I'm out.

    Do you perhaps go to a drama school? :P Oh, wait, you just ninja'd me. That sounds fun ...

    Yes, I had a professor who used that expression. I forget what his name was but he taught Aerodynamics 2.

    Oh I see, well at least that sounds like fun. Maybe if you go for your Ph.D you'll be able to kick the master's students out too.
    That's nice.

    Unfortunately for drama-haters like myself, it's everywhere D: some people enjoy it, but I despise it.

    Well I am planning to get a Ph.D. eventually because how else am I going to have a career in academia?

    But probably not here. Since the Ph.D. students are getting screwed.

    It is totally like the grown-up version of "eighth graders get the back of the bus and sixth graders get the front!" though. We're the lowest on the grad school totem pole. At least we're not undergrads?!?

    And now we're talking about the comprehensive exams that we have to take at the end of our two years here.

    Another "why the fuck did I go to grad school" moment for the day.

    Yeah, I can't really complain. Even if I have to memorize a music history textbook, I'd rather do that than a million other things.

    Every class I took, no matter how advanced it was the professor would always be like "we are just scratching the surface, if you want to really learn this stuff you need to go to grad school."
    That's nice.

    Same here, hence why I stopped (for now) at a B.A. in Sociology. It's amusing in a weird way, when you consider that I had autism/add as a kid, and my parents were told by my elementary school principal that [Name] will never make it to high school. He's just too dysfunctional. Too emotionally unstable.

    Well, I'm 25, and I'm a library tech for a university. I get to hang out on computers and work with books, and I love my job. And my coworkers think I'm pretty nice.

    So yeah, Elementary School Principal, take that.

    Congrats @SteamKnight;! (Also I'm an Aspie. Represent! Although I wasn't diagnosed until I was 22, but I definitely had to deal with some condescending bullshit when I was a little kid because of behavioral problems, even though I was always really smart and (mostly) a good student.)
