1. Long lines
You know it’s love when…the line doesn’t just end at the “Enter here” sign–it extendes, or travels rather, past the entry sign, down the hall, through the Children’s department, passes a different register, and ends next to a drafty door with foreign tourists traipsing back and forth through the entryway. Love, right?
2. Heavy coats mixed with air conditioned, crowded rooms
Whilst one your way to the actual store, you’re bundled and cozy, warm and confident. Then you step into a department store sauna, and suddenly your forehead begins to perspire, your hands sweat, the silk blouse you’re wearing underneath saturates itself with your sweat, and then your great “Black Friday” hairdo gets dampened by the humid breath all around you.
3. Babies and bad mothers
You see a stroller with a baby. Two legs in one stroller hole, the child has a lump of dusty hair in one hand and a lollipop in another, whilst the wandering- sale- seeker- of- a negligent- mother combs through a clearance rack. The baby starts to cry. The mother doesn’t flinch and continues her combing.
4. Crappy music on the loud speakers
Because there’s only so many times you can hear jingle bells and not think of the lack of jingling dough in your wallet.
Red light. Blue light. Green light. Middle finger. Grandma in Cadillac up ahead. Stopped to fix the lens on her scratched glasses. Yellow Light. Red Light. Blue sirens. Stop. Go. Stop.
6. Sales tax
A $160 item ends up becoming $200 somehow. What’re you guys just making up the sales tax now?
7. Bad customer service
“Hi, can you tell me the price of this?”
“Um, doesn’t it say??”
Look through the item over, turning it every which direction to find the price.
“Oh, yeah no it doesn’t. Can you price check it for me?”
Eye roll. Fifteen minutes later.
“We can’t sell it now, because it doesn’t have a price tag.”
8. Gum chewing, eye rolling cashiers
Walk up to the register. No response to your human presence. Chatter with co-worker. Gum snapping.
“You have ______ credit card?”
“Oh, do you want one?”
“Do you want _____ discount card?”
“No, thanks. Just these.”
“Well, if you ______, and then _____, you get ______.”
“No, really thank you. Just this.”
Resume chatter with co-worker disrespectfully. No response once you get your receipt and actually walk away.
“Um, have a good day?”
Tips for how to survive your first year of college
1. Know that your roommate will be weird/eccentric/unusual. And this is the time to embrace it! College is about learning that not everyone is like you and embracing all the differences the world has to offer. Let him/her teach you something new about the world and make sure you’re open to those new discoveries.
2. College is not the place to be cocky or arrogant. It’s about finding yourself, your “inner” self, not bragging about how many successful passes you made on the highschool football team, or announcing your stellar SAT scores. Humble yourself to the learning and you’ll find yourself on a new academic/social/spiritual/life changing journey.

3. Have an extra set of sheets. It’s not enough to have one set, because when they’re being washed, what will you sleep in. See, it’s all about the little things.
4. Hang out with friends. Hang out while studying. Hang out at the library, coffee shops, in your dorm room. It’s okay to be alone when you’re crunching down for your final papers, but throughout the rest of the semester, HANG OUT WITH YOUR FELLOW STUDENTS.
5. Try not to judge others. Keep an open mind. Everyone is different. Remember, this is the time to learn about the world, not just enforce and defend your own viewpoints.
And so…we landed on Mars!
No, this isn’t the beginnings of a Ron Hubbard novel, but actual real life. At approximately 1:31am, last night, or morning rather, Curiosity landed on Mars. And there was no cat to kill it either.
Fox News reports, “Through the chute, a unique robot arm and a rocket-powered hood, the rover slowed until it drifted to a stop on Mars, to cheers and applause from the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory late Sunday.
“Touchdown confirmed,” engineer Allen Chen said. “We’re safe on Mars.“
Minutes after the landing signal reached Earth at 10:32 p.m. PDT, Curiosity beamed back the first black-and-white pictures from inside the crater showing its wheel and its shadow, cast by the afternoon sun.
“We landed in a nice flat spot. Beautiful, really beautiful,” said engineer Adam Steltzner, who led the team that devised the tricky landing routine. The rover then released a slightly higher resolution pair of pictures.”
And from the NASA website, “NASA Lands Car-Size Rover Beside Martian Mountain
The Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) spacecraft that carried Curiosity succeeded in every step of the most complex landing ever attempted on Mars, including the final severing of the bridle cords and flyaway maneuver of the rocket backpack.
“Today, the wheels of Curiosity have begun to blaze the trail for human footprints on Mars. Curiosity, the most sophisticated rover ever built, is now on the surface of the Red Planet, where it will seek to answer age-old questions about whether life ever existed on Mars — or if the planet can sustain life in the future,” said NASA Administrator Charles Bolden. “This is an amazing achievement, made possible by a team of scientists and engineers from around the world and led by the extraordinary men and women of NASA and our Jet Propulsion Laboratory. President Obama has laid out a bold vision for sending humans to Mars in the mid-2030’s, and today’s landing marks a significant step toward achieving this goal.”
Just wait until the dust settles…
Curiosity landed at 10:32 p.m. PDT Aug. 5, (1:32 a.m. EDT Aug. 6) near the foot of a mountain three miles tall and 96 miles in diameter inside Gale Crater. During a nearly two-year prime mission, the rover will investigate whether the region ever offered conditions favorable for microbial life.
