Are you looking for another bad pony ask blog? Are your needs for terrible art and poor jokes not being met? Well good news folks, because I made this blog just for you! Feel free to send in questions or commands to get this thing started!
Well it is good to know that Ask Professor Uponium is not the only blog offering questionable art and poor jokes! Huzzah!!!
Ask Professor Uponium:
Oh boy have I!!!! Oh wait. Is this the Tumblr diet where you stay inside, get no exercise and eat junk food and pizza (that one does not work, trust me). Or the new one where you just stay on the internet so long, forget to eat, and watch the fat burn itself off in a last ditch effort to keep you alive?
#bad spam is bad. #should have drawn a picture for it.
Yeah, I missed my schedule (at least for most of you). My apologies; I’m still getting used to actually having a deadline for these. Gonna try harder next time. I spent a ridiculous amount of time on that blackboard, cramming it with crazy…
Yes…nothing to see here….No plots. No dragons smuggled in under the school. No advanced mental manipulation going on. Nothing at all…
Today marked the last regular day of class. I still have a lot to do in the next few days to finalize everything and then finals next week. I have finally had time to sit down and do some arts. here is a preview…
Uponium is dabbling in dark things from beyond time and space so another big crossover with some blogs I like and most of whom are following me is needed to stand against him. Expect plenty of gender-bending, angry rants from Professor Smirk, and Sturm…because what massive my favorite blogs thrown into an ask post would be without the hyena fandom.
Anyway. after next Wednesday I am out for the summer…well 3 weeks before summer semester (II need money and must work). I will be relaxing, playing Bioshock Infinite, and getting some asks done (probably queued for weekly updates for a while).
Until soon everyone, and after this post, I will announce some sort of giveaway or something.

P.S. Had my first big case of plagiarism this semester. One of the biggest headaches I have ever had to deal with.
P.P.S. Students I went off on in front of everyone spent the rest of the semester polite and proper. Should have done it much sooner to avoid the disruption.
PBS Meets The Avengers - Here to save you from crappy TV
Bob Ross, Bill Nye, Mr. Rogers, and Carl Sagan are united to pilot the spaceship of the mind away from the mind-numbing reality of today’s reality programming.
“Some people just want to watch the world learn.”
I really can’t tell you how happy I am to get to work for PBS. Like, I’m giddy watching this. These are my dudes. I feel like a Junior Avenger. We … ARE … PBS!!!
And it does mean a lot, nothing brightens my day more than a student (mine or not) that cares about their education and good educators. I also have plenty of wonderful students, which is why I may highlight some of the most awesome papers I get this semester (Ive got around 50-60 of them between 2 classes.
I always get 1 or 2 of these every year and the student comes to class regularly, though doesn’t turn in work very often (which I think is the culprit…no rough drafts = no feedback).
I plan to take some time out to update the blog. I really promise, the last few weeks of the semester are rough and my busy workload triples on a good day.
but enough ranting. thank you for the words of encouragement. My faith is more than restored and I felt much better after my 5pm class this afternoon and lecturing.
I am up to my eyes in final research papers. Things are busy and I have been grading since 9am. I need a rescue team, maybe with hot tea and pictures of fluffy puppies (though I am remembering I have a donut from this morning).
I have a paper not in APA style. My guidelines for the paper were written in APA style. I may be at my breaking point. I am hoping this is just that one paper I get every semester that makes me question all of my ability to convey and teach information.
I havent even made it to the introduction/lit review and I am 122018022e83102801823082% done.
maybe when this is all done i will post the topics of the best and most interesting research proposals from this semester. maybe that will cheer me up and fill me with hope. i have lost the ability to capitalize.
leaving for class soon. discussing humanistic therapy will cheer me up. big fan of rogerian therapy here.
until later as i am now losing the ability to punctuate said the pony professor

With final research papers due tomorrow and time with a rapidly developing infant keeping me busy, I figured some updates would be in order. So a lot has been happening and it will probably keep me from all these half drawn projects I want to work on.
Posted a nice poem about depression, meant to throw it on my mod blog, but it ended up here and after getting a few notes, decided to keep it as it was fitting for my own mood and oriented in psychology
The big data collection run is complete for our fandom exploring BronyStudy study this semester, now I just have to enter it. In addition I need to start getting my stuff together for finals (in 2ish weeks), final papers (40-50 of em this semester), and my materials for the summer semester and the fall.
On a more somber note, we had a death in the family. My wife’s grandmother passes. She lived with her for years and they were very close. Waiting now to see when the funeral will be. She will be missed.
In addition to this we experienced a bit of tragedy on campus, with a student committing suicide. To top it all off, this is at the beginning of the same week I lecture on the seriousness of suicide and depression and relay information on how to seek and offer assistance in those situations.
And on top of all of this, with everything going on, I lost it at some students yesterday. I found their snickering and talking amongst themselves to be rude and grossly inappropriate during my depression/suicide lecture and gave them a fair piece of my mind. I will have to see if next class it changes their demeanor, which has been some of the worst I have dealt with all semester. I find myself calm and it takes a lot for me to be set off, but after everything that was probably the most disgusted I have ever felt after dealing with students.
Anyway. felt I should share some thoughts. If things perk up, I will have something to show this weekend and get to some questions I am really excited about finishing.
Until then everyone,
Professor D.Y. Uponium
I have plans for a 100 follower giveaway. I may turn it to: 87 followers, push to 100 giveaway. More to come once I decide what all I will be giving away.
I prefer a good cup of tea at home. But all the same, please come and have a seat.
I have been away, it has been busy. Tests to grade, research to be done, plans to set in motion. You know, the busy life of a Professor. And yet, while things have been hectic I still find time to sit down and talk with friends. Good company and good tea…
