How interestingly forward.
In truth, pretty much every extension I've ever requested was to satisfy delays created by falling in love (it a terrible break up). If course I never put it to the teacher that way.
What subject did they teach?

@bryn wheres that professor when i need them (now)

@garfiald I totally saw this reply the first time you posted it but yeah.....

LB is such a great idea. I started a relationship just before the end of the last academic year and it is distracting!

But it was also really energizing for me. And it meant I felt even more cozy and at home working on my cursed phonology essay and my sociolinguistics spreadsheets at his house, which I still remember fondly.

@bryn this reminds me of the time where a kid wanted to go outside and play in the playground so she just asked every teacher until one said yes

@bryn That's a very polite way of asking if he could go blast shit out of his ass so I don't know why he got in trouble.
