You learn something new every day, whether or not you realize it right away. There are no exceptions to this rule.

Today I learned the difference between bowler hats, pork pie hats and fedoras. Before today, they were all just fedoras to me. It never occurred to me that all three of these different hat styles had different names.

I also learned that Roseanne is Jewish, and that gummy shot glasses exist.

It doesn't have to be anything life-changing or significant or anything, just something that you learned. So AG, I ask you now, what did you learn today?

The school's current route to the fire assembly point is extremely circuitous. Luckily it was only a drill.

I learned that the 'myth' from middle school, where we would have to watch a sex video in health is going to be real. Sometime soon the girls and guys in the class will be split into different rooms. Oh boy.

Practice your deadpan face. You'll need it. School sex ed mostly exists as a test of being able to maintain composure in the face of a really awkward situation.

I learned that while blood does come out of carpet and clothing, it stains chemistry textbooks.

Also, on the topic(ish) of sex ed, I learned that when you precede your high school teaching career as an adult film star, your past will come back to haunt you.

You've...never done that? No wonder the teen pregnancy rate is so high.

Is there a story behind this?

Speaking of teachers, I learned that my Macro teacher wants to run for president solely because he thinks he'd be a better candidate than half the people running.

I will be making my own beard and hair oil in 5-8 business days.
Equal parts jojoba and sweet almond carrier oils, with a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Mixed together in my new 2oz glass amber bottles with droppers.

I actually did this a few days ago, but I decided to write a fanfiction about two guys in band just for fun(No I will not post it here), apparently it was so good, they made me write a part two and they want me to make other fanfictions.

I learned that my hand is only sprained and not fractured. It still sucks though. I guess I should think twice next time before I try to run my fist through a wall to alleviate my rage.

Today I learned what Pseudobulbar effect is. They say that it effects 1-2 million Americans nationwide. When I read the description, it got me thinking that I might have it. I have exhibited the symptoms before.

Yesterday I learned that my crush is apparently the daughter of my 6th grade teacher, who is probably the best teacher I've had yet.

Life definitely has those surprising moments.
