I'm dreading tomorrow. I don't wish to sound melodramatic, but since coming back from university at the tail end of the weekend, so much of my life has been hanging on a knife-edge. And tomorrow is the scheduled result date for my second year. Allegedly, and I'm pretty certain of it, if I'm in the Class 3 band (a "third", can roughly correlate to 5% of the 300-strong yeargroup) we're unable to come back to sit any of third year, not even bump down a year and repeat second. I know it's an outside chance that I failed second year or have such a low "pass", but I'm still in that fretting worrisome state. Last year was a high 2.ii, inches from a 2.i, and a good step-up on what my studying laziness for revision tests was predicting, but they and I knew I could go further. Which I hope I've done this year, and feel like I have; somehow I reckon it was a better performance on the whole. But this suspense is killing me.

And it doesn't help that there's more on my mind for my summer break. Last year I almost brought relationships with my parents to breaking point, and on both sides of the rift my presence at home for a whole four months did no-one any favours. Attempts to find a summer job have been fruitless, so this week is a scurry to find something, anything, somewhere, anywhere.
Finances are a shambles for me as well. There's no unifying control of where assets attached to me are based. Two current accounts, one bank savings account, a post office savings account, countless bonds/shares/stock pieces set up by various relatives in bygone times.
Then there's driving. Been stuck on a provisional license for so long, have been faffing around with tuition on and off for nearly two and a half years, and have only a passed theory test, two failed practical exams, and countless hours burned on driving instructors to show for myself.
There's probably other things as well, but essentially this starting point to my summer vacation is becoming a Thirty Xanatos Pile-Up, mostly of my own inadvertent devising.

Things just felt so comfortable in the university bubble, when the mind could be focused on the material at hand and the impending exams, but this return to real life in the past 2 days is wrecking me.

People that ask me if getting my snakebites hurt.

This annoys me because it happens roughly a few times every day. Not once every week or so. Every single day.

Piercings, in general, hurt. Don't they? I did mine myself, so you can only assume they hurt.

It took me a re-read to realize you meant piercings instead of being bitten by snakes. In my defense, I have spent much of today worried about snakes.

While it's entirely possible that you did the piercing in the proper way, given that you're assuming that they hurt for other people, I get the impression that the needle was probably sterilized with a lighter.

Yeah.. don't do that. Get pierced by someone who not only knows what the hell they're doing, but has a steady supply of one-use piercing needles which are then disposed of as medical waste, as they've been used. Like a professional. Much like a tattoo artist, you'll have to look around to find one that you trust, but.. not having massive infections that require doctorin' or hospitalization is awesome.

Okay, so.

It is so hot right now. It is so hot and humid at the moment because it is Summer and this kind of weather is apparently thought of as a Good Thing. WRONG. IT IS A BAD THING. I am currently up, having woken up at half five, because I have had what can be reasonably said to have been in the top ten worst night's sleep, or at least the worst night's sleep I have had for a very long time.
I will admit that this is not just due to the weather; it is helped along in this superlative by the fact that I have "slept" on a spare "bed" which is apparently made of metal, with only a thick duvet to serve as a bedsheet, duvet, and pillow; it is also not a wide "bed", which means that I have had to precariously balance on my side, spreading enjoyable pain to my arms and back. It is also too short, so my feet and lower legs dangle from the end whilst my shins are forced against the hard corner edge of this "bed".
But. BUT! But. The heat. Oh, Gods, the heat. After waking up at half five (now I realise that this was a defence mechanism to prevent my death by heatstroke) I immediately spend the next fifteen minutes standing up, leaning slightly against the wall of this small room (a room in a house of people I only know in the loosest possible sense, but because this is where my sister lives and I am visiting her, I must stay here) as standing up for long periods of time is more comfortable (i.e. not comfortable) than getting back in the damned bed.
The heat has transformed me into a sticky, sweaty, wheezy mess. I am finding it difficult to concentrate on things, and I am finding it so uncomfortable that the idea of putting on clothes is making me nauseous. The air in this tiny room is, in all likelihood, tangibly thicker than ordinary air. It is a mixture of air, heat, sweat, and suffering.
IT IS SO HOT. I am in so much discomfort right now that I am attempting to use this laptop, and the usually trance-affecting state that the internet places me in at most times, as an attempt to distract me from my current discomfort (although the tremendous heat put out by the processor is doubtless exacerbating the problem). I dislike excessive heat, and humidity of most if not all kinds, and I am so godsdamned tempted to walk straight outside and find a bench to lie on in the cool morning air, in my underpants.
In addition to this, the heat and stickiness have conspired to place large quantities of mucus in my nose and throat, so that now I am constantly attempting to prevent a runny nose, as well as stopping the stuff forming a seal on my throat and asphyxiating me. With no tissues, this means that my only course of action is to sniff forcefully and hope that I can swallow most of the disgusting stuff.
I cannot leave this room for the next couple of hours, as it would entail getting dressed in this sticky mess, and it would also mean waking my sister's boyfriend (for whom today is the first holiday in a while, and so is getting a lie-in). So I will try to bear this current purgatory until then.

And, to those of you who say to me in future, "Oh, how can you not like summer? It's so lovely and sunny and hot and gorgeous": please do not, as I may scream and set you on fire. I live in England, but I am going to move to Siberia at the earliest and most convenient time. Apparently the days are getting shorter now, which means that the inexorable march towards Winter has begun. I welcome that season with welcome arms: I welcome the biting cold and the snow and the frost, keeping me deliciously cold and not in this disgusting state.

Have you concidered using that fine British invention the hot water bottle, but in its reverse capacity? Filled with ice and cold water it is surprisingly good at keeping things cold.
Also, open more windows (if practical) borow/steal/buy a fan and direct it towards you with something cold in between.
I don't know the standard of cleanliness where you are at, but getting rid of dust might be worth considering if it is present. It helps lighten the atmosphere considerably.
Replacing the duvet with just a bedsheet could help as well. A bedsheet will also serve as a very light and airy garment for when you just can't stand heavy clothes. The mediteranian toga is excellent inspiration.

Hope something will help!

dear in-flight entertainment manufacturers:


1. people hate moving a cursor with a D-Pad

2. the touch screen you put in to make up for it won't be noticed by half the people

3. make the in-flight movies not be all pixelated

4. make the zuma clone not crash every 3 minutes

5. remember the touchscreen? make sure that its actually calibrated, so that your taps aren't 3 cm off

6. make the buttons large enough to tap

Somebody stole the steering wheel from my car. That's right, the steering wheel. A wheel that has absolutely no benefit to the thief (I mean, who do they think they can sell it to?), but without which, my car is undrivable. What a cunt.

They also took my stereo which is more understandable, and my sunglasses which is less understandable because they're prescription lenses.

It's a misapplication of the stats. The way they did the research was by surveying people in each age bracket and finding out what percentage were left handed. Thing is, back in the early 20th century, it was common to force a naturally left-handed child to write with their right hand. So people who grew up in that time period would be more likely to claim to be right handed.

*sigh*
Spoiler:
Gahhhhhh. Fuck you, hair. I hate you, you know that? I hate you ever so much. Almost as much as my cheap and crappy straightener. I swear, as soon as I get the chance, you're done for. I am going to hack all of you off and be done with you. Jesus. "Oh but you have such lovely thick hair, I wish I my hair was that full, why don't you just let it curl?" No. Forget you guys. It is much easier to add some volume to your hair than it is to make it go away. You know how much time I spend? Over an hour. 60+ full minutes of taking a strand, running under heat, brushing, heating, brushing, new strand. Curly? For one, thanks for remembering what I looked like when I was three. Adorable corkscrews, yea, I know. That stopped when I was six. At six, curly became frizz. So yea, I have tried to wear it "curly". It takes a tube of fucking gel and it still just looks like a mess. AND FACE. Don't think I forgot about you, face. Screw you too. Yay, let's be all round and full and adorable! Hahaha, fuck off. Round face= no short cuts. Short cuts make face look fat. Do we see the dilemma? While I want to hack all the hair off, you will insist on making me look quite overweight. I've put quite a lot of effort into looking the opposite of that, thank you very much. So, hair. I hate you.
And yes, I know it's just hair and it doesn't matter, I know it's stupid. But this is the third panic attack I've had over my hair and I hate it.

Gahhhhhh. Fuck you, hair. I hate you, you know that? I hate you ever so much. Almost as much as my cheap and crappy straightener. I swear, as soon as I get the chance, you're done for. I am going to hack all of you off and be done with you. Jesus. "Oh but you have such lovely thick hair, I wish I my hair was that full, why don't you just let it curl?" No. Forget you guys. It is much easier to add some volume to your hair than it is to make it go away. You know how much time I spend? Over an hour. 60+ full minutes of taking a strand, running under heat, brushing, heating, brushing, new strand. Curly? For one, thanks for remembering what I looked like when I was three. Adorable corkscrews, yea, I know. That stopped when I was six. At six, curly became frizz. So yea, I have tried to wear it "curly". It takes a tube of fucking gel and it still just looks like a mess. AND FACE. Don't think I forgot about you, face. Screw you too. Yay, let's be all round and full and adorable! Hahaha, fuck off. Round face= no short cuts. Short cuts make face look fat. Do we see the dilemma? While I want to hack all the hair off, you will insist on making me look quite overweight. I've put quite a lot of effort into looking the opposite of that, thank you very much. So, hair. I hate you.
And yes, I know it's just hair and it doesn't matter, I know it's stupid. But this is the third panic attack I've had over my hair and I hate it.

You're always a beacon of hope, HarleyQuinn... :roll:

I don't come to be judged. It's a rant thread, I ranted.

I think really short hair would work rather well for you, if I am imagining something accurate. Go chop the fuckers off.

I'm a fucking douchebag cunt asshole who deserves to spend his life removed from everyone in Northern Siberia.

That is all.

Your location says you're in New York. You're already removed from everyone in Northern Siberia. I mean, unless you have relatives there or something.

I'm just saying, a lot of your posts are in the rant thread, a lot of your F/R/T posts are also rants, and it's really ironic next to the happy expression in your avatar.

My arm hurts. It is swollen. I fell off my bike yesterday going 17 mph down a hill and landed all 170 pounds of me on my left elbow. Right on the joint. It is black and blue and swollen, father, I can't move it because the joint has locked up, and it is full of muck and grime that I can't get out myself because it hurts too goddamn much and I go into shock every time I try. So, please, when everything about my arm screams "I AM BROKEN HELP ME OH GOD IT HURTS", please, pay attention to me when I ask to see the doctor. Which you didn't do when I had a grade three concussion. Which the school nurse had to tell me I had when broccoli tasted like peanut butter and I could not walk.

Try murdering a shopkeeper. That usually gets you thrown in Siberian work camps, if I remember correctly.
