I am still laughing...

After finding this random little ditty on YouTube. I don't know why I find it so funny, but I do. It's only sixteen seconds long. Enjoy.

My Town Monday: Back to School

It's still 100 degrees outside, but students and teachers in our district head back to school Monday morning. My classes at the University of North Texas start at 8:00 a.m. sharp, which means I'll leave for my commute sometime in the middle of the night. The upside: sunrise! That is, if I'm able to view it through sleep bleared eyes.

For those scholars braving congested traffic and jammed hallways today, I offer this tip from the geniuses at Worst Case Scenario.

How to Survive Being Crushed in a Crowd.

1. Bend your knees.
2. Take a deep breath.
3. Tense your biceps and shoulders against the crowd, and fold your arms in front of your stomach (as if you are carrying something).
4. Lift your feet of the ground and let the crowd carry you.

I really like the visual on this. I may try it in the stairways in the university's English department.

Good luck and good studies, to all!

Question: morning person or night owl? Any tips on crossing over for the early side of the worm?
