Short for "information technology". Synonymous with MIS or CIS, which is "management/computer information systems." Term used to loosely describe computers and the management of information.
IT professionals are often looked down upon as non-social beings who fix computers all day. IT, in reality, is anything related to using technology to store and analyze information.
"The IT department is full of computer geeks."
Short way of saying Bellarmine College Preparatory. An extremely upper-class private all-boys high school. They hold "mixers" in which they steal all the girls from my school and invite them to a dance. Many people call Bellarmine "gay", as it is an all-boys school, but what they fail to realize is that the kids from bellarmine will probably be our bosses one day. Whatever, I still hate them.
All the girls are goin' to the Bellarmine mixer tonight...no fun tonight.
Proper is actually a word you can use all by itself, you can just expostulate "Proper!" and it means something similar to "Wicked!" or "Excellent!" or "Cool!". It is an exclamative word. If something totally cool or awesome happens you just say "Proper!" and it means the same as "Awesome!" or "Cool!", but it is much newer and fresher and better and longer-lasting than those words. Its literal definition is "Perfect". Say this if you want to not only be with it, but way, way ahead of it. Proper.
