1. Tiger Stripe ice cream
I still haven't tried it, but it is made on campus, and people love it.
Everyone I talk to goes to a different church, and everyone I talk to loves their his or her church. I've visited three, and I liked all three of them. (First world problems, right?)
3. Smart people
Everybody seems smart here. [I am like not even that special anymore. (Just kidding, bahaha.)] But, seriously, it makes sense that Columbia is the 13th most educated city in the country! Or at least it was in 2006.
There are always people "evangelizing" in the speaker's circle at Mizzou. I keep getting this urge to throw Bibles at them and yell "Jesus doesn't motivate with guilt!" But I'm pretty sure that Jesus doesn't motivate by throwing Bibles either. (In other news, Brother Jed's home base is at Mizzou.)
People love to swear at Mizzou. Profs swear at students. Students swear at profs. Profs swear in their lectures. Students swear in their homework. And it's all no big deal. No big deal, #$@% it!
People also like to smoke on campus. I will never understand.
People love this grocery store called HyVee. I went there, and I was all excited to experience it, but it turned out to be...a grocery store.
8. Hating kansas
People hate kansas here. They hate it so much that they don't even capitalize the k. That is the middle finger of grammar. (Prior to moving here, I'd only seen the middle finger of grammar used for satan.)
There are so many Asians here. (Do you like how I represented them with a picture of Russell from Up? Thought so.) I'm pretty sure there are more Asians in the grad school than non-Asians.
10. Parking garages
I pay $170 a year to park in parking garages, and I spend a lot of time in parking garages. They are taking over the city of Columbia, and there's still not enough parking.
Wow, parking garages make kind of a lame note to end on. I should have thought of that when I was arranging my collage, but it is 1:12 a.m. now, and there is no way that I am opening up Picasa to rearrange that and make a better conclusion for you guys. Has journalism school taught me nothing!?
p.s. I'm starting a new series on my blog called "Grammar with Kate." Clever, right? No, not right. If you can thing of a better name, let me know. It will be a grammar series inspired by pop culture happenings. First topic of discussion: Lady Gaga's new song "You and I." So much is wrong with that song. (Grammatically and otherwise.) Get excited.
