Feel free to shoot me an email at carltont at umich dot edu and maybe we can get some sort of ride together.

I'll be there.
Driving straight down from Saline on Friday. The crew I'm with will most likely be a lot more invested into the racing action than the game, so I'll likely miss it and try to watch it later at the hotel whenever I can find some sort of replay.
For those poo-pooing the event, its a pretty huge deal that the US is hosting World's this year. The last time the US hosted was 1986.
I had a chance to race the course last year as I qualified for collegiate road nationals and they were using the course as a test run for worlds, but had to miss it due to graduation (and the fact that I would not have been remotely competetive.)
It'll be cool to see Coryn Rivera and Allie Dragoo (from Grand Rapids) race against the world's best after watching them lay waste to much of the collegiate fields while they were at Marian.

Another bad one was at the Village Pisco in Manhattan. We got there about 15 min before happy hour ended and quickly ordered drinks, but our waitress was too slow and didn't get them into the computer in time. So our drinks were full price and the waitress and manager refused to give us the happy hour discount despite the fact it was completely their fault. Then I ordered this thing on the menu that had some grand description of sausage and fries with a house sauce. I get my food and its literally 2 microwaved hot dogs, some fries, and ketchup. And it was over $10.

|37 weeks 6 days ago||Try everything until you can||
Try everything until you can pinpoint the styles that you like and go from there. I did this and discovered that I'm not a huge fan of IPA's, I hate sours, don't care for helles, can't handle bourbon barrel aged beers, and I'm pretty indifferent to most brown/blonde ales. Knowing what you don't really like can help eliminate a lot of choices and make the store/bar less overwhelming. I'm not saying to never try an IPA again if you don't like them, but knowing it isn't your style can help ease the "getting into beer" process.
Personally I've found that I get along pretty well with anything dark, most stuff with a strong yeasty element, and anything with a kick of coffee. So stouts (especially nitro), porters, black lagers, dunkelweizens, hefeweizens, trippels, saisons, etc are some things I enjoy.
Some of my personal favorites right now are Right Brain CEO Stout, Oddside Ales Bean Flicker, Dragonmead Final Absolution, Left Hand Nitro Milk Stout, Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier Dunkel, North Peak Hullabaloo Chocolate Wheat, and New Holland Monkey King.
Don't just lock yourself into what you know though. Try some new and weird stuff every now and then. I really enjoy Shorts Nicie Spicie and Wowee Zowee despite them not really falling into a category that I consider myself to like.
I also recommend using something to keep track of what you've had. I personally like Untappd.
|39 weeks 2 days ago||Your eyes are healthy,||
Your eyes are healthy, congrats. You're correct that doing refractions for glasses and basic glaucoma screening isn't rocket science. However, walk into an optometrist's office with a pathology requiring treatment and I think you'd appreciate them more. Sure, they may end up referring you out to an ophthamologist for treatment, but an optometrist's ability to find, diagnose, and treat problems can be the difference between keeping and losing your vision.
Sorry if I sound butthurt, but I work in a clinic that employs both optoms and MD/DOs and the optoms do a whole lot more than the healthy patient will ever know.
And I don't see how OD and MD/DO is the same designation. Sure they're both "Doctors", but on the same token Harbaugh and your local high school special teams coordinator are both "coaches". It's not hard to see which is more prestigious.

Stockwell was much tamer, only fun thing that happened there was my friend passing out in the elevator only wearing his underwear, eventually waking up, then knocking on my door in the middle of the night to ask if he could sleep on our futon.

IMO the rushing performances of last year vs CMU and this App State game aren't even close.
Last year the 242 yards came on 47 carries to the tune of 5.1 avg.

Last year Gardner had to run for 52 of those yards, this year he had 9.
Last year Green had the most yards at 58. This year...170, with Smith at 115.
I realize he wasn't trying to compare them as much as he was trying to warn against blowing up expectations, but the performances were vastly different.
I don't think his analysis of the run D was totally fair either as it seemed like a lot of those yards came late when Michigan was rotating players through quite heavily and playing defense more vanilla than a sundae with no topings.

EEB 440/441 - Biology of Fishes and its lab. From what I've heard the class has changed a bit since I took it due to a revolving door of profs, but it was great when I did.

Took a weekend field trip to the Biostation as well.

Anthrarc 285 - Frauds and Fantastic Claims in Archaeology. Lisa Young was one of the best profs I had here. The class was great and is what lead to me declaring an Anthrarc minor.

Don't do it at Michigan. I know the allure of taking a class here during high school is exciting, but its not worth it IMO as far as both cost and stress you'll endure. Many of my friends have taken every possible measure to not have to take math here.
I sailed through calc in high school (AB), then pulled a C- in Calc II my first semester. Its just a whole different ball game. Average scores on exams in the low 50%'s were commonplace. In hindsight I could have tried harder, but it still would not have been fun in the slightest and I'd probably still have gotten some form of C. My friend who took honors calc II had a better time with it, but the ones who had it the best were the ones who took it at WCC or Lansing Community College.
I don't mean to rain on your parade, I just don't want your senior year of high school to be a drag, especially since your grade in the class may count if you carry on to enroll as an undergrad.

We could easily qualify as individuals. CX is pretty easy to qualify for as numbers are low, pretty much show up to a few regular season races and you're good to go.
The problem is cost. We'd have to pay our own way out to nationals. Also, there tends to be USAC CX races in SE Michigan on the same days as collegiate events, so its a lot easier to drive 45 minutes for a race than 4 hours.
It would definitely be neat though and we have a few guys that I wouldn't be shocked if they went for it in the next few years.

Set to see The 1975 and CHVRCHES this summer. I'm not too familiar with The 1975 and I'm going since my girlfriend has an extra ticket, but I'm incredibly excited to see CHVRCHES. The Bones of What You Believe is one of my favorite albums out there.

Oh, I agree for sure. I have nothing against a kid overcoming adversity and making it big with money and cars and all of that good stuff. I just don't like the NCAA only enforcing what it wants to/can easily. Monetary shenannigans can provide an on the court benefit via recruiting and what not. A guy who didn't even play smoking some weed, not so much. Yet look which gets punished.
I just want things enforced if they're rules.
|1 year 31 weeks ago||So let me get this straight.||
So let me get this straight. Getting paid, posting pictures of all your cash on social media, and driving around in pimped out cars despite coming from a poor neighborhood is all fine according to the NCAA and not even worth looking further into.
Enjoy a single marijuana to try to deal with back pain and you're done for a year.

So Shabazz was "starving" becuase he couldn't afford food, meanwhile he walks around with arms full of tats and $200+ headphones. Ok.

You can sure as hell bet that if I was to get expelled due to a sexual conduct case that I'd have some "family matters" to handle with my parents. Was he telling the whole truth? No. But why did he need to? People need to just chill out.

Current student. The only really "nice" things I commonly see players with are expensive headphones. I also know of many players that live out in Ypsi in order to save cash. I'm not saying that bag men aren't happening, I'm just saying that its not like I'm seeing players rolling to class all blinged out and stuff.

A cycling thread!
I'm really looking forward to Roubaix this year. Unfortunately I won't be able to watch it live since we have a crit at Notre Dame on Sunday, but I can't wait to watch a recap and/or follow the live text feed.
I'll be pulling for Phinney HARD as I always do with the Americans, but I just don't think he's the winner of a monument quite yet. As far as favorites go, I like Fabian. I'd love to see Spartacus and Boonen (or any of the OPQS guys) duke it out. I just love how the classics bring out the badasses of the peloton.

Just had to do this in Linguistics 111 last week (2nd semester senior woooo). Nailed me to the MI area, which is spot on.

|1 year 34 weeks ago||The last few seasons were meh||
The last few seasons were meh to me and at times frustrating becuase some episodes wouldn't advance the story at all, but at that point I was in way too deep and had to keep watching. I loved the earlier seasons so much that I just had to see it through and find out how he met the damn mother.
That being said, I didn't like the finale. We've been leading up to him meeting the mother for years now. Going through relationship after relationship to find "the one". Then in the span of 15-20 minutes they just throw her away and he goes back to Robin. What the hell? It took us so long to get here and Ted finally found his love then boom, she's gone just like that? Really cheapens the whole relationship IMO. I guess I should have seen it coming, but I would have content with a "happily ever after" scenario with the mother ending with them being old and playing bridge or something (would have pulled from an old running joke). And what is up with them being unmarried for 7 years? Seems like a very un-Ted like thing to do.
Oh well, its over now.

Currently racing bikes for the club team here (road and cyclocross). We just had our first race of the season this past weekend down in Kentucky and had a great showing.
In high school I played football (left tackle) 2 years till I got a nice avulsion fracture in my pelvis and decided that was enough for me since I'd be at risk to do it again. Basketball 1 year since I got cut my senior year. Baseball 1 year and golf 3 years. Was decent at everything, but not really stellar at anything. The highlight of my high school sports career was dropping 19 points including 5 3 pointers in the first YMCA high school league game after getting cut.

An hour is no exaggeration. Before Notre Dame we waited outisde our section in the stadium for over 45 minutes without moving. This doesn't even count the time we waited outside the stadium. We got to the stadium an hour and a half early and almost missed kickoff. Student GA is an absolute joke .

Except we didn't have a true general admission becuase you can't sit wherever you want.
And they aren't the best seats in the house since they're still stuck towards the endzone.
And if you get there too early you can get stuck in the low rows where you aren't in the front, but you're still too low to see anything not happening right in front of you.
And one basketball game =/= several saturdays throughout the fall.

I couldn't care less about wifi, but it really would be nice to have phones that actually work. Even more so now that there is general admission. Trying to coordinate who is where with your friends is damn near impossible at this point, which could actually be hurting how many people show up.

Eh, they certainly didn't help matters. Had all the momentum and within 5 and then boom, 6 points on questionable calls (especially the and 1 called on Horford).

Don't really remember what their prices were like since I usually end up buying different stuff every time.
