College is OVER. One week until graduation.
This weekend has been superb.
Thursday night spontaneous dancing, sushi, hiking, Roma’s for sandwiches, super fulfilling naps, gatherings with fun new people, 4th Ave meandering, giant Jenga, bloody mary’s, brunch, more downtown walks, delicious coffee shops, blog brainstorming, driving with the windows down, soaking up the sun. I am a lucky girl.
Can I just talk briefly about how an image-based email I designed on my own was sent to
300,000 396,000+ students from the department I work in today? Too fun.
America: Do whatever the fuck you want because America
Does anyone actually follow that ettiquette in England?
Because my understanding of tea ettiquette in England is: OFFER YOUR GUEST TEA AS SOON AS THEY ARRIVE - GIVE THEM THE LARGER MUG, BECAUSE THEN THEY CAN HAVE MORE TEA IN IT, AND MORE TEA IS BETTER - OFFER THEM MORE TEA AS SOON AS THEY HAVE FINISHED THEIR MUG OF TEA, BECAUSE MORE TEA IS BETTER.
IF SOMEONE LOOKS STRESSED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS UPSET, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE LOOKS TIRED, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST COME IN FROM THE RAIN, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF SOMEONE HAS JUST RECEIVED BAD NEWS, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE WATCHING TV WITH SOMEONE AND THERE IS AN ADBREAK, OFFER TO MAKE THEM TEA. IF YOU ARE MAKING YOURSELF TEA, OFFER TO MAKE EVERYONE ELSE TEA. IF SOMEONE IS NOT CURRENTLY HOLDING A MUG OF TEA, DOUBLE CHECK THAT THAT IS AN INTENTIONAL STATE OF AFFAIRS, AND THEY DO NOT, IN FACT, WANT A CUP OF TEA.
IT’S FUNNY BECAUSE I’M ENGLISH AND IT’S ALL TRUE. well done that person
The caps makes this seem like they’re joking, but… no, genuinely, that is how you do tea.
But seriously, that’s all accurate.
Seconding everything everyone else has said. Do not be thrown off by the caps, because that is all. so. true.
All I want today/this week/this semester.
