The Fuck You Rules

Those of you who follow me on twitter, and see the crazy tweets I make about comments made in class. Well most of those tweets occur on Monday’s and Wednesday’s in my Public Speaking class with Dr. A. Out of the 5 classes I’m taking his is the one I like best, b/c he’s relatable and the topics of discussion are ALWAYS interesting, to say the least.

Today, in Public Speaking Dr. A introduced us to “The Fuck You Rules”. These are rules he says he followed that helped him make it through while he was in school working on his PhD. His mantra while in school was “Fuck You I will make it, Fuck You I can pass this class, Fuck you I will…” etc.

I like the principle behind “The Fuck You Rules” So here’s my list:

Fuck you, I will finish school before I turn 30
Fuck you, This job is a pit-stop, not my final destination
Fuck you, My marriage will last
Fuck you, I will not be bitter about being barren
Fuck you, You will never be able to make be feel inadequate
Fuck you, You will NOT catch me slipping. I’m too clever.
Fuck you, “the jones’es” don’t pay my bills, therefore I will NEVER try to keep up with them.
Fuck you, I will not stress myself out trying help family/friends. Every top has to stand on its on bottom
Fuck you, I will succeed in business
Fuck you, I will always think highly of myself. If you don’t like it, Get DA FUCK!
Fuck you, You will NEVER break me!

I challenge all of you to create you own Fuck You Rules. Live by them.

And Dr. A, today is the only day you’re allowed to read my blog! LOL


  1. Now you know Dr. A is not going to listen to you, right? I can already tell that making this type of list is going to be a little challenging for me. Don’t know why yet.

    FUCK YOU, I will make a list for myself.

  2. Uh… yeah, I concur. He did need to say all of that AND then some to get through school!! I got a Ph.D., and uh, I said WORSE than he did! FAR worse… LOL

    And hey, if that’s what get’s you through, work it out. Gotta be rough with the haters! Sometimes ya just gotta get verbally violent.

    My favorite: “Every top has to stand on it’s bottom”

    Really though.

  3. Had some stuff on your mind I see…

    good list…always nice to get it out…

    and you are right, you are not defeated, you are the victor so tell them all…F’ You!

    I never say the F word, it sounds funny when I say it…well unless…nevermind…getting off topic.

  4. LURVE this idea! I’m getting my PhD now and definitely utter some variation of Dr. A’s list daily.

    Fuck you… I will be the first Black woman to finish this program!

    Back to writing this proposal I go. *Sigh*

  5. I like this . . . I smell a series. You can’t do this just once. You’ll find yourself adding to it almost every day.
