What came over me? No. Seriously, something did come over me.The problem with me is you.Really it is.I didn’t know what i was doing.I’m sorry. I wasn’t thinking.It was the devil! No, God!He gave me an F.
We are familiar with that part of us that relegates blame
to some seen or unseen third party right? Perfect. I want to do a cute little
talk on it. As some of my more assertive friends would say, ‘let us thrash this
matter’, or at least, let us try to. There’s almost always no harm in trying
out stuff(unless by trying out stuff, you mean trying out poisonous substances,
or trying to see if a concentrated acid bath would do what it is said to do- in
which case i cannot really assure you that there is no harm in trying- or other
downright dangerous escapades)
WHO IS TO
The first time i actively discussed this particular topic
was some months ago during my internship when my fellow intern (name withheld J) proposed a theory.

Just accept the compliment and leave it at that” He nods and doesn't.
Introducing, (a round of applause for this gentleman please) the guy in my head. For purposes of this discussion, let’s call him Parano. Yes, Parano would do. ‘Parano’ is a ‘subset’ of 'paranoia', and the latter fits this context almost perfectly.
He is not tall. In fact i can reasonably say that height is not
his strong point. Before that, let’s do a little introduction. In my almost
four years as an undergraduate, i have encountered quite a number of types of
individuals in different kinds of administrative positions. By administrative, i
mean positions of authority that entail attending to students. Before i bore
you, let me narrow this to the matter at hand. I've seen irritable, angry,
hot-tempered, short-tempered, quick-tempered, rude, angry and irritable people.
