Confession: I hate dealing with parents. Absolutely hate it.

When I was teaching, it wasn't so bad...but when it comes to boarding....well, I can understand being concerned about your child, and wanting to know about their well-being. Really, I do, and I will try to accomodate those concerns to the best of my ability. However. And this is an important however. Our staff and promotional material make it very clear that our students have 10pm weekday curfews and that up until that time, they can go where they please. It makes clear that what we are offering is a universty-style living experience, with on-site support, but with ultimate responsibility residing with the student.

This means I cannot give you records of everywhere your child has been for the past three months. This means I do not monitor who they are friends with outside of the dormitory (in fact, I have never even been to the school where they go for classes). If you have given your child permission to stay out past curfew, then no, I am not going to stay up until they return to call you and let you know they are back, I am going to go to bed. I am not going to excuse his absences because "he felt too tired to go into school today" and I am most certainly not going to arrange private transport for them to get to college. They can take the bus, like everyone else. You cannot refer to your child as "very mature and responsible in an email" and then castigate the staff for not being able to treat him for an illness neither you or him reported, and that he did not bring medication over for.

And if your student is privately renting accomodation from here, then I'm sorry, but he's not my responsibility and no, I am not going to wake him up at 7am every morning. And I'd very much appreciate it if you deleted this phone number, after telling me who you got it from.

Some days, I really feel like emailing parents links to 24/7 nannying services, and tell them this may be more what they are looking for. And this urge is almost overcoming my desire to keep my job, today in particular.

My fiancée spent a summer in college helping compile the university directory, and they used to get calls all the time from people who thought that the directory office was directory assistance. She still tells the story about the woman who called and said "Well you're a student, maybe you can help me out, my son is an incoming freshman, and I need to find a laundry service that will pick up my son's dirty clothes from his dormroom and deliver his clean ones."

She carefully explained that all of the dorms were equipped with laundry rooms, and that college is a wonderful time to learn important life skills like how to do your own laundry, but apparently this was not acceptable and the woman hung up in a huff.

Several people around me are going through divorces and I am really curious as to why they are going through with the divorce. My family never actually broke up and had some really miserable years because of it.

I can't ask them though because I don't want to stab the bright pointy lights into things they don't volunteer.

But I'm so very curious.

Eh, not so much; it was essentially pointed out to me. But we have discussed things and now everything's alright. Communication: sometimes it's actually pretty good and stuff.

Wow that sucks :( I'm so sorry. Maybe in the future if she ever becomes available and if you and her are in the right place at the right time, you can pick it up. Rejection is a bitch. Here, have a song, maybe it will help. For best results, consume with cold beer :/

I would too but he thinks he's in "love" so all I said was *maybe* if they both found each other again and if the time is right, they can have something. Moving on is the obvious alternative to rejection, of course.

Hehehehe... Are you doubting my in love-ness?! I do too. I mean, I've only known her for a couple of weeks, but I have only ever once felt like this about a girl before. Slightly confused on my part.
Menacing Spike wrote:I would much rather suggest moving on.

Naturally it is the best thing to do in this kind of situation. I just hate to do it! And like I said, she's... special. I might be attracted to, and interested in her more than I ever was to/in a girl. So far it's not getting me down, but maybe it will if I get too attached to her. Which I want to. But I can't because it might make me sad. Argh!

Déjà vu!

Sorry. But yeah... I'll try not to be to active on my part. I haven't spoken to a couple of friends in a while, and someone I know from Australia who I really haven't talked to in a long while just came to Amsterdam, so I guess now is the perfect time to hang out and distract myself.
I'm having contact with her, though. On a daily basis. We talk about what happened today, and it's all good fun. I'm sort of giving her tips on this essay she is writing about how the brain biologically responds to music, and showing her sources. It's quite interesting! But should I cut that off, for my own protection? Or should I just leave it like this, because those brief interactions are the highpoints of my day right now. I guess I'll just leave it like this, because after all, I am sane of mind, and I am the only one that can see inside my head, So I will make my own decisions.
Gee, writing that cleared my head somewhat! I hope that reading it hasn't fogged yours.
(Thanks for responding! The song was nice, the moving on bit was a confirmation of what I suspected myself, and it made me write this, which cleared my head. Cheers!)

When I was younger I was often harassed by bands of youths (being Different and all). At times I had to defend myself; using my knees, my elbows, the ground, or my aggressors themselves as weapons. (why do people punch against multiple opponents in comics and movies? Punching freakin hurts, I can't imagine doing that many times in a row)

And now I sorta miss problems that could be solved by inflicting pain until they go away. It was so... simple. Natural.

Aw, Menacing Spike. Any gym nearby where you can use punching bags? It really helps. I know this first hand and I realise how lame it sounds when I say it like that on the boards but yeah. Either way, I'm sorry that you're dealing with so much pain. Hugs if you want them.

Since I want to get this off my chest somewhere where I'm not going to be "downvoted into oblivion", I'll do it here if that's kay?
- I don't care for Minecraft and don't view this Notch fellow as an idol. Maybe I like my graphics engines more 'realistic', 'cos I'm fine sandboxing in Garry's Mod.
- I find some of the stuff TotalBiscuit gets up to these days irritating - such thoughts of mine could be expressed as "The Internet is not a Monarchy" [he's perenially running in 'King of the Web' to raise money for third world charity harvesting votes from twitter/youtube subs]. And maybe I liked him more when it was an internet radio station lambasting WoW on a friday evening with an IRC channel, not a youtube of video game demos and starcraft 2 commentary.

Confession: I kissed a dude the other day.
I was using laughing gas, and I sorta went to limbo, I can't explain. Anyway, when I got back, after what felt to me like hours (which was only a couple of seconds), I was so incredibly happy I just hugged the first person I saw. And then I wanted to celebrate life, so I (think I) said: "I love life." and then we made for a couple of seconds.
It's been sort of bothering me, because I've always been sure about my orientation, and still am, but this just sort of makes my mind think about things again. "Maybe you've been repressing it." "Maybe you bi-sexual!" And when I ask myself if I could be sexually attracted to another man, I know the answer: no. I could never love a man romantically, I just know it. But I still kissed a dude! I'll probably laugh about this in a couple of weeks, but right now, it's kind of bothering. Good thing I have to go to work to keep my mind off of things.

First of all, mmm hot :P

Second, it's okay. I felt this way too after I kissed a girl and then I realized that nobody is ever fully gay or straight and also that certain situations make us feel and do things that we usually don't. This stuff isn't etched in stone. I hope you'll be fine sooner rather than later.

Fess: I hadn't read anything by Shakespeare until I was 20. Sigh.

I went through a similar phase in my life and I found a few things useful to bare in mind:

1: If you have no problem with gay and bisexual people, it shouldn't matter to you if you are one. Your uncomfortable feeling is probably coming from self doubt. The best way for me to get over this was, instead of asserting to myself "I am this, I am not that" I told myself "I think I am this, I think I am not that but I may be wrong. No matter what I am, though, myself, my friends and my family won't think any differently of me."

2: If you find you still need an anchor point to give yourself a comforting bit of familiarity, think about your masturbation habits: With me it was comforting to know that, since I do definitely find women attractive, my previous relationships weren't lies whether or not I'm attracted to men as well. Besides, like Aime said, these things aren't set in stone.

3: Drugs man. Even the prescription ones do weird things to you.

As a side note, laughing gas is awesome.


Confession: I started smoking a while ago and am too embarrassed to tell my parents.

Yes, but this has never happened to me before.

Hm, I guess in short I'm sort of... letting it go now. I told my mom yesterday, and she just had to laugh about it all. In a cool way though. So we laughed a bit. (She got worried at the "limbo" part though, but that's beside the point.)
I think I'm definitely not gay, and that what happened tuesday was just some weird shit.
For the record: being gay would definitely be no problem for me, my friends, and family at all, it's just that I'm pretty sure I'm not.

Thanks again!

Do you feel the need to tell them? I had been smoking for about a year before I told my parents. At first they were all "You don't need that." and "Don't start this." They still don't like the idea of me smoking, and they'd rather not see me do it, and I understand and respect that. My point is, do you want to tell them? And if you don't, do you think you should, and why? Maybe you don't have to tell them for now.

My 'rents don't know about my smoking but that's more out of the fear of the doomsday apocalypse happening due to my mother's wrath of hell rather than embarrassment.

Fess: The bassist of this band called Them Clones passed away a few hours ago and I feel very strange about it. I don't know how many times I have seen them play and how many times I've smiled at the guy from the front row and how many times he's smiled back. Even though I don't listen to their music all the time, it's still hit me in a weird way. How strange death is. Even when it happens to hundreds of people every second, I'm still not unaffected by it.
Summer is miles and miles away, and no one would ask me to stay.
And I, should contemplate this change... to ease the pain.
And I, should step out of the rain... turn away.

That's just avoiding reality. A gay friend was scared of coming out to me because that pushed away so many before.

Since I always went relationshipless, my mother seemed to wonder if I was on that side of the fence. Given by how often the assured me that it would be totally okay for her if I was gay, it obviously was not.

I could go on like this for long.

I dunno. I know it's not that big a deal but I guess I just don't wan't to disappoint them.

Well, I did say these were the things that helped me feel better. I know for certain that my family wouldn't care one way or the other and in my friendship group anyone pushing someone away for being gay will find themselves pushed away from the rest of us for being homophobic.
Spelling and grammar can go screw themselves.
