cyber Monday [sahy-ber]
the Monday after Thanksgiving, one of the busiest online shopping days.
Origin: 2005–10; cyber computer, computer network Monday
Since when does this exist!?!? (Ok, it clearly says 2005, but I mean it as a figure of speech) Is this really necessary? Am I the only one offended by this? Couldn't they come up with a more creative name than Cyber Monday? Honestly, it brings me back to my early teenage years when "cyber" was short for cyber sex.... That's all I think of when I hear the word cyber. I've said it so much right now I've gotten to the point of semantic satiation. It just sounds weird now.

Interesting concept. I’m currently researching what this alleged body architect title entails…
I’ve always wondered. In movies they always show houses with so many books! Apartments, offices, whatever. There’s always a bunch of books, as in shelves brimming with books. Does someone actually decide what books to put there? Is there someone thinking what the character would actually read? Or is it just random books that were brought in?
Oh my God. I can’t believe that I never put together the fact that Ben Savage (from Boy Meets World) and Fred Savage (from The Wonder Years) were brothers…. I sometimes confuse them and they’re both Savage. I mean, duh.
My Thought Process
On Friday: Okay, you have a lot of homework to do this weekend so you'd better split it up evenly each day. That way you'll get the hard stuff out of the way and you'll be able to relax on Sunday and not worry too much about the coming week. It's really important that you do this stuff and not fuck around, just sit down and power through it. It's going to work out really well and you'll feel really accomplished and you should just really take initiative because honestly if you don't you're going to get super overwhelmed and then you'll end up stressing on Sunday night and not getting any sleep and then you'll be tired during school and it really is just a vicious circle so, come on, you got this, you can do this.
On Sunday night: Well, fuck.
