At some point, I think I will speak nothing but academese. I’m afraid I’m almost there as it is.
I’ve realized that — although I don’t believe in karma, as such — it would do me well to reflect on my hubris. I need to be more humble, more careful, more thorough and more patient. I need to keep an open mind and an open heart, otherwise, as one of my favourite professors advised me, “You only know what you know.”

nomespeak lesson #2
“you suck!” or “he sucks!” are commonly heard terms
however, these are not accurate ways of ascribing the word “suck” to someone
the correct way, rather, is to say
“you are a suck!” or “he is a suck!”
i think that’s a fairly simple concept to learn…
“YOU ARE ALL SUCKS!”
