Tuesday Hatred: Mish Mumkin

BOY do I hate the new gmail layout. I want a way to select all unread conversations with one click, thank you. (Yes, there’s * u as a keyboard shortcut, but the only keyboard shortcuts I can ever remember are # to delete selected convos, x to select, and k/j to move up/down.)

  1. You don’t archive (y)?

    I hate that my advisor told me that the application I sent out yesterday would be DOA — due to the fact that he was my advisor. Negative networking!

    I kind of hate that I still have a feeling of accomplishment from yesterday, due solely to having written the cover letter for that position — it will serve as the template for subsequent letters, plus it has K College letterhead and a scan of my signature. I feel like I’m really on top of things for applications this year, and I hate that I’ve done it enough times to develop proficiency. For this feeling of accomplishment, founded on such a flimsy basis, to outweigh the fact that I wasted the entire day arguing with someone on the internet — that feels hateable. Or rather, it makes me feel as though I should hate MYSELF.

  3. I hate that this idiotic “mosque controversy” has apparently successfully been turned into a national issue.

  4. I start to hate August, on account of it taking so long. I also hate spam hits on wordpress because they hide how I’m deeply unpopular on the internet.
