(8:41 AM) | Adam Kotsko:
Tuesday Hatred: Your MomI hate the lingering feeling that I'm falling behind. I hate taking multiple days to recover from a night out. I both hate and love having only a week and a half until my exams start. I hate imposing on friends.
I hate it when MS Word's intuition is wrong (i.e., all the time). For instance, I had a document with several pre-existing bulleted sections, all fairly close to the left margin. I needed to add more bullets, so -- naively -- I clicked the "bullet" button. Based on the rest of the document, Word apparently reasoned that I wanted the bullets to be indented past the middle of the page. I also hate that the problem is so cumbersome to fix by hand, because you first have to drag the tab marking out of the way so that you can move the indentation. Then I have to put the tab in the right place. (I ultimately copied and pasted another bulletted section to duplicate the formatting.) I also hate how you can't avoid selecting the paragraph mark along with a full paragraph when using the mouse.
Also remember to love.
