10 Weird/Funny Things My Professors Said During Lecture

10 Weird/Funny Things My Professors Said During Lecture

Without context, these quotes make no sense. With context, they still sometimes make no sense.


My professors all had very varied personalities this semester. They were a little weird when they really got into their lectures, and this led to some hilarious things being said. I would write down anything interesting or funny just to be able to laugh at it later. Now, I'm putting it on the internet for all to be entertained by.

1. "It's too bad stones and trees don't vote. -Republicans" 


This was coming from my conservative leaning professor. He was so serious when he said it and his voice was completely monotone.

2. "Tacos on steroids."


This came out of nowhere. I have no clue what he was referring to but I wrote it down anyway.

3. "Make America okay again." (insert sigh here)


This also came from my conservative leaning professor. He was sad when he said it and then chuckled. I was geeked.

4. "The large enchilada." (California) "The slightly smaller enchilada." (Texas)


He referred to many things as enchiladas throughout the course. I guess it was his favorite food?

5. "Some of the New England states are 'woke' I guess the word is, they use meters."


This was after a rant about how we still use inches and feet.

6. "Look how members of the House dress!!!!" (Ensue yelling) 


He was roasting members of the House for dressing less than professional in comparison to members of the Senate. In the moment I probably laughed too hard because he said everything in a monotone voice and with such seriousness but then would laugh himself.

7. "I was caught once going to court because I was speeding to get there."


Occasionally this professor would go on rants and this one was about how he got a speeding ticket on the way to court to dispute an earlier speeding ticket. Poor guy.

8. "Let's go get Canada."


This was a remark made after a discussion of the United States' growth and how we need space. No, prof, let's not takeover Canada.

9. "Chloe, are those new shoes?" "No, I've had them for a while." "They scare me."


After class one day my professor said this to me as he was heading out the door. I was wearing white converse.

10. "The weather today is SO homophobic."


This is my FAVORITE one. My Issues in LGBTQ+ Studies professor said this as he walked in sweating profusely. It was around 95 degrees outside. When I say I spit out my water when he said it, I mean it. I could not stop laughing.

My professors were all so nice and funny, and these random quotes will be ones I'll remember (and laugh at) for forever.

A Playlist From The iPod Of A Middle Schooler In 2007

I will always love you, Akon.

Something happened today that I never thought in a million years would happen. I opened up a drawer at my parents' house and I found my pink, 4th generation iPod Nano. I had not seen this thing since I graduated from the 8th grade, and the headphones have not left my ears since I pulled it out of that drawer. It's funny to me how music can take you back. You listen to a song and suddenly you're wearing a pair of gauchos, sitting on the bleachers in a gym somewhere, avoiding boys at all cost at your seventh grade dance. So if you were around in 2007 and feel like reminiscing, here is a playlist straight from the iPod of a middle schooler in 2007.

I Didn't Choose To Be A Dance Major, It Chose Me

How my passion became my purpose


I don't remember the exact moment, but I do remember the process. I remember moments in time and the way joy has manifested itself into my life. Perhaps this is the meaning of life—a slow growing journey of finding yourself through experiences and delightfully long conversations with people we care about, long nights filled with laughter, early mornings with dew beneath our toes, waves of utter joy, followed by waves of somber; it's all just part of it. And within these waves and moments of our lives, we begin to see with clarity—a slow but steady process. Clarity occurs when the fog is lifted. It's when you find that thing you're passionate about, and you do it relentlessly. This is the art of becoming.

So, I don't really remember when I became a dancer. I suppose it's been a lifetime of becoming. I can't even really say that it's a choice. I don't think it is. I know that I was born to dance. And this has nothing to do with how I look or anything like that. But it has everything to do with how I feel when I dance. It's this sense of sheer release, and to be able to get to that point of really, truly not having a care in world; this is how you know you're in the process of becoming. It's in the moments where I'm the most lost—the moments where I've really given myself over completely that result in the greatest rewards, usually in the form of self-knowledge. This is clarity.

I have not chosen to become a dancer, but inevitably dance has so gracefully chosen me. And with great appreciation, I've accepted the invitation. I've since made the mindful choice to immerse myself in this art form, because to me this is how joy has chosen to manifest itself in my life. Through movement, and love of music, and love of creating, this is how I've chosen joy.

It recently dawned on me that dance is what we as humans use to declare our vitality. It's an appreciation of being alive. And more so, it's a celebration: of being alive, of our bodies, of human contact, but mostly just of life. We as humans dance to celebrate life.

So with this joy that I've been so lucky to find, I am compelled to study dance. And not just take classes, and not just take notes, but to really study—to really understand what it means to be alive, and to feel gratitude for every ounce of my life.

This is why I'm a dance major.

So before you question me, and perhaps tell me that my major is useless or is not setting me up for a successful life, maybe consider that I've chosen a life of joy. I've chosen to be passionate and throw myself into gaining a greater kinesthetic awareness, a more profound appreciation for music, and for art, and for culture, and just life in general.

I have chosen to celebrate my life, and celebrate what my body allows me to do every day. And through my choices, I've begun to master the art of becoming.

Author's note: The theme of "becoming" was subconsciously inspired by Michelle Obama.
