I’ve only been using the app for a couple of weeks on my Nexus 7, so I’m still getting used to its craziness.
Here is my question: It keeps hiding posts and leaves a button on my dash to “show hidden posts.” Sometimes I have to find and hit that thing several times to get all of the posts since the last time I used the app. I find this annoying. I’ve tried to find a way to turn this off in the app itself and I’ve done some cursory internet/tumblr help searches and found nothing even remotely relevant. Has anyone figured out how to turn off the hiding of posts in the tumblr app?

We have snow! And a two hour delay! Which is still a little weird for me. I went to college in central New York (just south of Syracuse and Rochester). In that part of the world, “lake effect snow” was a four letter word. School was only ever canceled once, on September 12th, 2001. It was never canceled for something as silly as an inch of snow. It wasn’t canceled for four feet of snow. :-) What a difference two thousand miles can make.

As per this post: http://scitchet.tumblr.com/post/43503165385/my-faith-in-humanity-is-quite-low-right-now
Let me give you just a glimpse of my day.
1. A student who “can’t afford” her books spends the entire class shopping online. This is her third or forth time repeating the course. She keeps asking me if not doing her work is hurting her grade then telling me how it is everyone else’s fault.
2. I have an older student who stops by before every class to tell me all of the stuff he is going to do. He has yet to do any of it. I try to help him, tutors try to help him, but he only wants the help he wants. Unfortunately, the help he wants is not the help he needs.
3. I have a student that has some learning issues. He can definitely learn, it just takes more work for him. He checks in with me at least once a week. His family is not at all supportive and some times I think they are abusive. Unfortunately, he is an adult, so there is very little I can do for him unless he wants to help himself.
Couple that with the roughly 30% who are somehow convinced that the can pass without doing work, the class on crack last Friday, and some select crazy people and I’m just kinda tapped out.
It is only Tuesday. This week is going to suck sweaty balls.

Luckily, I follow some kick ass people on tumblr. Otherwise, it would be zero…

I just found out that a dog we helped find a home a few years ago is back at the pound.
It just makes me sick. Do people not understand what happens at the pound? There are plenty of no-kill shelters and rescues in the area. How could you put an animal through the pound?
I seem to continually find myself disappointed with people.

Seriously. On crack. I just gave up. I can not wait until May. Can Not Wait!
Speaking of that, I should look for more jobs to apply for. It would be so awesome if I could just get paid to nap.
I really need a nap.
