Re: Post yo' fess - Sponsored by the NBA

Confess': My best friend/roommate/coworker was nominated for Student Employee of the Month.

I'm upset. Because I don't think she's that great.


... and I think I'm better.

(End terrible friend-ness. Oh random people on the Internet, do not judge me.)

Re: Post yo' fess - Sponsored by the NBA

Confession: I'm not sure I know what it's like to not be at least a little sad. Because even when I'm happy I know that the sad will probably come back pretty soon. That's weird and not healthy. And it's also not going away, and that worries me because I'm trying so hard. Confession 2: I feel like ...

Nor was this ever a problem, until this morning. $40 parking ticket AND a bitchy call from the lady at the l...

Re: Jeopardy quiz.

Re: What were your dreams last night?

I was at a spa, but it was underground in a cave -- a natural hotsprings sort of thing, with hot tubs and all. It was nice and warm, and the springs collected into pools every once in awhile. All the pools were different temperatures (so you could choose one that was comfortable, presumably,) and we...

That is creepy.

Today I learned that I can accompany a friend to surgery in the hospital and see people with IVs in without winding up on the floor/running out screaming.
You may think this is trivial, but I assure you it is actually quite a revelation.

Re: Embarrassing stories of youth.

Most of the stories that are funniest to me (in retrospect) involve hilarious mispronunciations. For example, there was a solid year when I was five or six when I was certain the word "subsequent" should be pronounced "subSEEquent", since, after all, sequences were involved. I s...

Re: Embarrassing stories of youth.

This one time, in grade 5, I got banned from reading. ME TOO!! At recess! I also used to read during maths in grade 3 because, well, maths is boring. (Sorry to the multitudes that I have offended with that.) No one ever told me to stop doing that, though. Anybody else have those reading charts in s...

So, this probably sounds weird, but I think my ears are asymmetrical. Because when I wear my glasses -- and I'm almost 21 years old and have had glasses since grade 5, so ... dunno, lots of years and this has happened with every pair -- they always sit at a slight angle on my face.

Re: How to deal with unstable roommate?

You should keep in mind you're not a psychologist although many people play one on the internet (unless that's your major). You should feel no obligation to treat her any different than another human being, and if she can't handle herself tell her to seek professional help. Seriously. Unless you've...
