you would not believe how many unflushed dumps i've come across in my house. it's disgusting. it's like looking at a big, brown submarine that's come outta someone's butt

I don't understand how people can do this. I don't think I'd be able to just take a dump and walk away, leaving it there unaccounted for. Even animals normally try and kick up some grass to cover it up to some extent, I think I'd have to be super drunk to be able to just take a dump and walk away with no remorse. I'm almost impressed that someone is capable of doing this to be honest.

It could possibly that they did flush but didn't check to see if it had all been flushed or whether it needed the second flush

The worst is when you see that at work though =[

 If I don't pass maths on Thursday there's no chance of me getting into university.

 If I don't pass my A2 exams, there's no chance of me getting into university.

 I want to go to university to provide a better livelihood for my future family.

 
 There's so much stress right now and even though not going to university isn't the end of the world, it would mean a lot to me if I got in.

Stupid politics paper asked an essay on whether giving the judiciary extra powers leads to a greater separation of powers - was hoping for one on whether a codified/entrenched constitution would benefit us, more to write about there =/

I had to call a friend to pass on a message from another friend, and it was so stressful I'm literally shaking and almost cried. It was mostly because I was afraid his brother would pick up (which he did) and I'd really just rather avoid him if possible. (it's weird though, I don't mind him in person, but talking to him on the phone really freaks me out. No idea why)

I've invented a new game, it's called Bad Luck Cleveland. Here's how it works: You root for a Cleveland sports team, then as soon as they're about to amount to something, an unforeseen circumstance (injury, bad game management, bad management, stupid luck for the other team, etc.) occurs and they lose. Nope, i'm not bitter at all, just tired of getting so close and then losing.

Oh well, at least the US beat Holland 4-3 today.

 It wouldn't be so bad but it's all. the. freaking. time.

aaaaaAAAAA //pushes table over// dont see a chiropractor you idiot!!!!! see or find a physical therapist.or a reputable physiotherapist.

i dont care how desperate you are dont see a chiro unless u want to make ur next post from a wheelchair (http://whatstheharm.net/chiropractic.html)

while u crippling urself would be hilarious it wouldn't actually be hilarious at all and it would be very Regrettable and Tragic

so for gods sake just look for something else or maybe just buy yourself an olympic bar and get a good Deadlift form going if ur like every other person with "bad posture" (i.e. untrained and stiff lumbar/lower back muscles). i mean i dunno if thats ur problem but everyone should do a deadlift

well that is most definitely an option but my t-shirts need ironing whereas my shirts don't and my only kinda warm weather esque jackets / coats are black so black skinny jeans would clash

if I had the right jacket / my t-shirts were well ironed I'd most definitely do that though =]

 Today's exam went okay... tomorrow's exam should be on gender because I can't remember doing any explanations for ethnic inequality - if anything, it'll be how EMG women suffer and we've barely touched black feminism.

 I'm bricking it tbh. Absolutely bricking it.

 I just need Cs to get into my lowest university and whenever I'm confident I absolutely bomb the test so my confidence has been slaughtered throughout college.

 It's gotten to a point where I can't even write "the" without panicking.

 Haven't actually started revising yet either but I was going to power-list studies and stats for any 20 marker on gender and methods is pips anyway.

 Feminism is easy enough, functionalism is just "lel gender roles" and we haven't really touched Weberianism... hopefully it'll be a general outlook on gender? That'll be nice.

 Honestly, it turns out that my only downfall is that I include no statistics and I don't always relate to the question.

 Panic levels are through the roof.

Ok, to everyone who reacted to my comment on feminism, I apologize and I have removed that part from it. I'm not going to bother explaining because it'll just cause more problems knowing me.

I'm trying to watch the Treehouse at E3 for nintendo but my tablet is acting up.

E3 has come and soooo many awesome games!  Final Fantasy VII Remake (Can't believe I'm typing that hahaha) the Last Guardian (That too) Shemnue III (Wow), SUPER Mario Maker, Fallout 4, Metal Gear Sold V. :)

But my job ended last week so I'll have no money to get them! Nor for my newly  re-discovered love for DC Comics and manga. :(

But I got a postive feedback from my last job! And I feel confident that I can get anther one soon! :)

Also Arkham Knight comes out, but man, 5 days is far too long to wait. :(

I also feel very guilty in wanting to buy the season pass for Arkham Knight for the extra story missions.  I shouldn't support pratices like that.. but still.

(Also on that note, wow at all the pre-order bonuses, I'm just happy I'm getting the Harley Quinn story stuff.)

 I've done okay for gender inequalities tonight.

 Dreading tomorrow as I have no statistics.

 Gender might not even come up.

 My favourite thing about radical feminism is the complete lack of statistics. It makes it a lot easier to memorise.

 This Charleston Shooting is God-awful. If I feel upset by it, I can't begin to think about how those who were impacted directly must feel.

 Maybe it's time that guns were taken away.
Title: Re: first world problems
Post by: SirBlaziken on June 18, 2015, 19:00
Let's be honest. If there's gun control laws made, the only ones who will follow them are the ones who wouldn't do crap like this in the first place. I feel bad for the families of the victims that someone would even think about it, but that's how I see it. I'll probably catch hell for it. May the victims rest in peace.

Then again, these shootings are a problem, and you have a point. Maybe It's time we think a little more carefully before we sell guns to whoever.

hhhhh the year above seemed nice?? i guess??  but my year's just a bit disengaged i guess..........  idk the main subject i've really enjoyed was drama bc there were lots of nice people but everything's loud and scary and i don't really like it like the reason i'm leaving my school is because there's no pastoral system at all and it doesn't look like they have one there either really...  i don't like it i hate school

It's only worth about 50 quid, that's how much they should be selling it for!

See, I've got a slight advantage in that I'm 22 rather than 17 going for my first car, but I did a bit of research and I picked a 1.1 Saxo (lol) 2001 iirc, and by paying monthly it'd total at £1600 for the year which isn't as bad as I thought it'd be but still.

The plan is to just get a cheap thing that'll run for a year, and then get something better after that. I'm kind of excited, although I've still got the theory and practical pass yet (but I'd be very disappointed if I didn't have a car by the end of the year)

 George Osborne (and the Tory government) just shafted thousands of working class students.

 Like... all these things are good for the circle-jerkers who were raised with a silver spoon in their mouths since they were going to use daddies money to get themselves through uni anyway, but when you've actually had to work for everything you have whilst going through debt and depression, it's just another nail in the coffin. A student grant is more than just "omg lets get bladdered on Wind Street" it's a life line that would have let me get to and from university whilst paying for any books that I need to buy - I don't want to be put into horrendous scenarios by having an extra loan which will probably just be "pay this off by ur last day or hav ur degree revoked" which is something the conservative government would love.

 I understand that the initial loan is paid off once you're earning enough but with an additional loan that's being put in place just to shaft the working class, I don't know what's going to happen and now I'm more unsure about my future.

 It's like playing a game against a cheater since the odds are always stacked against you.

I still look young, at 22 I got ID'd at a pub I used to go all the time when I was 18. Even with facial hair I can't escape getting ID'd at times =/

lol I got ID'd the other day buying drink and I'll be 30 on Tuesday!

Of course now I get totally excited and giddy when someone asks for ID because it means I don't look my age vwv

What are your choices?

I can have virtually anything I want that isn't 'prestige' (Jag, BM, Merc, Audi etc). Which is the problem. Not that I can't have anything prestige, but that there are loads of great cars available without having to get 40k's worth of badge.

The guy who chose our company car got one of those new sort of businessy looking Mazdas. I can't remember what the model is but it looks almost like a Merc but actually looks really cool in red - unlike Mercs. If it was me, I'd go for one of those.

I'm at the point now where I feel like all of that should stop and a lot of the time it has done but when I do get ID'd it is a bit like "here we go again..."

I'm looking at an SUV type thing. At the minute it's the Toyota RAV-4, Kia Sportage, Nissan Qashqai, Ford Kuga and Honda CR-V. I'm trying to get most bang-for-buck out of stamdard kit which at the minute is working in favour of the Sportage. I have to have heated seats to relieve my lower back pain on long journies

The Mazda you're thinking of is a CX-5. Pretty nice cars.

That's something else I don't get. Why do people drink just to get drunk? I don't understand what could possibly be fun about that. Eh, I've never had alcohol so guess I won't know until I get older or something.

Most alcohol tastes disgusting. People only drink it to get drunk because of the effects it gives you, especially with the younger generation. I mean, having a cold bev in the summer can be really refreshing but you drink more and more of them for the drunk feeling.

The same applies to a lot of stuff, it's something you pick up when you're directly exposed to it.

Had some bad experiences like blacking out but I got the mad binge drinking out of my system? (I hope aha) Sometimes it takes a lot to get me drunk, depends on what I'm drinking tbh. Don't drink as much now because I'm working most weekends but I love a good mad sesh every so often to get nice and drunk and not care!
I'm either apologetic and sad or hyper and over emotional there's not much of an in between.

 I got wasted, picked up a sanitary pad I found on the floor outside Tesco, took it back to the flat, stuck it on my mates back, found it hilarious, and then passed out after downing a bottle of vodka. Drinking is fun when the company isn't the best since you can make the best out of it and tolerate boring conversations.

 My friends enjoy me when I'm drunk since I'm still nice to be around :')

Depends where you go, you'll be able to get them for fairly ordinary prices if you go to a rubbishy place, but like I've seen them over £10 a pint before in hotel bars and stuff. But yeah, £5-£8 is where you'd be looking in Central London, from what I've seen anyways.

 One of our dogs broke something that my mother really liked. It's annoying because there was literally nothing there for the dog but the dog still went out of her way to do it. However; this is the first time, that I'm aware of, where the dog has one something like this.

 It's irritating because one of the reasons was that I haven't walked them (because they're obviously just my dogs) but I've been busy these last few days?

 Obviously everyone expects me to walk all three of them and since I can't walk all three at once, I have to do two rounds. Nobody really helps me either since I'll be struggling with the dogs in the next room, loudly asking for assistance, and I'm left to struggle by myself.

the nurse almost took my arse off while giving me my shot today. i cant walk or sit down i swear to god she fired that thing from a shotgun at close range. she severed my spine in 4 places from the impact alone. i saw the needle come out the other side of my body. i lost about 7 pints of blood on the way home from this tiny injection spot on my asscheek. im currently at the funeral planning service writing my will and whatnot. catch me at the morgue later. cause of death: lethal injection to buttock. im still in shock.

Hope you can sit down tomorrow because reading this made my day God bless

My college somehow went two years before realising that a module we did wasn't valid anymore and that we had to take a new one to pass it. I've got all this extra work to do because they messed up so badly!
The only reason they realised was because I went up to get a print out of my modules and I hadn't been passed in one, they said they would look into it. I thought it was one we did in 1st year but after pouring over everything we didn't even do it. It turns out it was a new one that you do now in your first year. Why should it affect us when we were all under the impression we passed 1st year and received our hnc? Don't get why we need to do all this extra work because of their mess up.
Beyond fuming right now, I'm supposed to be going to uni!!!
The uni accepted my modules no problem and gave me an offer based on what I and my referee said so I've technically lied on my application form :)
The college is an absolute train wreck, 3 years into running the course and its been problem after problem. Put it this way only one of the current 3rd years are progressing onto the honours year of the degree, the rest are resitting 3rd year or have dropped out. One was designing business cards with Microsoft word, bearing in mind this is a graphic design based course...
Absolutely raging and so so so done with that place aaaaaaaa

I get a bus to go to school. The bus is an old, slow one. My parents have a thing about getting on the public bus, so I get the school one. Only every now and again we get a nice coach, with working air-con. Air con is nice in whenever it's hot, bug by chance we only get it when it's cold.

Anyway, the main point is school bus = welcome to stuffy kingdom!  :dry:

Title: Re: first world problems
Post by: sylar on July 21, 2015, 18:10
what classes at catcalling these days like whistling and that?

whistling yeah
generally commenting on a girls appearance either positively or negatively as if it concerns you (hey sexy/nice legs/nice tits/that dress makes you look sexy/your legs are too hairy/you need to shave your armpits/youd look so much nicer if you smiled/youd look much nicer with longer hair/etc)
sexually driven comments or compliments
basically treating girls like objects and not like human beings and feeling like its your place to eye them up or talk to them like theyre a piece of meat

like god i see it from men all the time just stay in your sweaty hairy lanes nobody wants you or cares what you think

ironic for me to say that because im swerving so messily out my own lane but guess who got catcalled as if i was a girl today! im heated!
Title: Re: first world problems
Post by: Liam on July 21, 2015, 19:11
Ahh i see, yeh i always thought it was a bit weird and gimpy that people would whistle at girls as they walked by. Even makes me feel uncomfortable tbh. I don't really see or hear much of it so i haven't given it much thought in the past, hence my confusion. If i was to see a pretty girl walking down the street and i thought, yeah i find her attractive and had a quick glance at her would that count? Is there like a discrepancy between ogling and making them feel uncormfortable, or perhaps trying to make conversation and telling her she looks nice?

I dunno, i'm just a bit confused as to at what point it becomes harassment and stops being friendly.

generally i don't mind too much if someone's just looks for a couple of seconds or so but it gets uncomfortable when men who are at least 20 years older stick a head out of the car to look at you and wink and raise their eyebrows like that is very very weird and uncomfortable but i don't mind if people just look.  telling someone they look nice/ trying to make conversation is fine i'd say as long as you've walked up to them and said hi and introduced yourself and asked if you can walk with them for a bit etc and made sure they don't feel uncomfortable with it


essentially don't yell "woah nice tits!!!" and a barrage of things i don't hear bc i'm trying to fend off a panic attack and all is good

yeah like taking a glance is fine but theres a sort of like...
after about 5 seconds it begins to get weird especially if youre staring at the titty or the Ass type deal. 10 seconds is too much and 20 should probably lead to some kind of intervention from a passerby or a friend.

i have a lot of friends who are incredibly healthy and struggle with weight gain. i had a friend where when he took off his shirt you could count all of his ribs but he ate a ton and was really in great shape, although he wished he was heavier. he said his weight situation improved when he got to college though :p

gotcha, be careful on the things like jogging tho re: cardio if you have bad joints. afaik unless you have your stride analysed and perfected and proper running shoes from some nerd in a sports/running shop to compensate for any stride errors it can cause more harm than good w/ torsion on the knees and ankles etc. if you're already suseptible to that kind of thing. swimming is a very joint-kind cardio exercise but swimming is also boring as heck and i dont think they allow you to wear shirts in swimming pools if you're a shy fatty like i am.

i tried to Lift to sort me dodgy joints out to force those ligaments and tendons and synovial fluids to Harden Up but im too out of shape for even a bunch o deadlifts and pushups. adrenal glands freaked out, immune system took a total nosedive and i got a super bad cold in my first week SIGH

yoga is a nice gateway tho for Joint Help, some of those positions are deceptively hard and you feel SO good once you've finished, all ur muscles feel all noodley and limp and great and the Constant Ache goes away for just a little bit
Title: Re: first world problems
Post by: Kpyna on July 23, 2015, 05:21
^ as well i want to add that running won't necessarily cut weight faster than lifting. weight loss is ALL about calories in, calories out, and you can burn plenty of calories lifting. not only that but you gain muscle mass and thus definition at the same time which makes you LOOK like you weigh less a lot faster even if secretly you don't. yoga and swimming are also good options but lifting is pretty easy to do at home or just go to a cheapo gym. that being said though cardio is important for your heart and going for a quick jog in the morning to get your heart rate up is so ideal. otherwise you really don't need it.

Yeah I've been the same pretty much all my life, the only time I don't eat is when I'm really really stressed, I just sort of forget and adrenaline starts fuelling me lmao.

like she just automatically assumed that I must have an eating problem but no I don't. Like my legs and arms are spindly but I've got chub on my belly and I don't look gaunt or w/e sigh

literally the fact that people won't stop talking about caitlyn jenner actually drives me insane. i just read a post today saying that since she'll never have a baby, have menstrual cramps, or "be afraid when her car breaks down on the side of the road", she's not a real woman at all. like if i don't have any hang ups in the menstrual department and if i've never feared for my life when my car breaks down, does that make me less of a woman too? what does that make me? am i going to be considered a man in the eyes of the people sharing that post because i haven't experienced most of these things that "truly" make me a woman?

ALSO last night i met this cute guy at a party and i woke up so hungry and before he got up so i left without getting his number lmao life sux

theyre also completely missing out the fact trans women are victims of transmisogynistic violence on a daily basis. they need to be afraid every day just as cis women do. just because they dont face the same biological issues cis women face, doesnt mean theyre completely safe from violence.

edit: not to mention their points are completely cissexist! menstruation and pregnancy affect all people with vaginas and a uterus! which doesnt start and end with cis women! their points are also very ironic; they act as if shes never going to face oppression women do while being violently transmisogynistic. lol.

^ that's a good point -- the chances for people to incite violence on you for being trans is SCARY high. i seem to recall a statistic saying like 1/4th of all trans people experience hate related violence against them in their lives, and the chance only goes up if you're MtF. i also made the point on my twitter because they wanted to talk about how she could never give birth that infertile women are women too! so messed up on so many levels.

 i despise that there are people my age who are apparently huge advocates for gay rights (like this girl) but they don't extend that same courtesy to transgendered people even though it's like... i don't know i've always seen the two issues as morally similar for some reason. i guess it makes you realize how many people are just conditioned into thinking things that politically correct and don't actually come to those morality conclusions at their own will.

i don't know... the post was like a 5 paragraph affair and i wanted to find it because there was soooo much more. i was gonna call the girl out but then when i looked at who posted it's one of the girls im living with next year... >_> it's gone now though so hopefully someone else did that good work.

ugh sweet lord it's getting to the point in the summer where i constantly FEEL like i should be doing something but i don't know what i should do and i feel unfulfilled and lazy. i understand the point of summer is so you can take a break from school but i'm just getting to the point where i'm so bored and feel like working is the best way i can spend my time...

this is made worse by the fact that i feel like i don't have much to complain about since i've spent a lot of time with my friends and i know that relatively speaking i am having one of my better summers but damn it's just so long now that i'm in college

That seems like good stuff. I've never really had eczema this bad before haha. The prescription stuff i went on seems to be working wonders so far, it'll probably be gone the day after tomorrow.

I used to have it on my hands too but I got rid of it completely because my doctor prescribed medical paraffin and it came in this really big tub and I had to apply it to my hands and then put cling film over it and then put a glove to hold the cling film. That's the story of how I wore gloves to bed when I was 10. It worked really well though.

I had this yellow stuff which was supposed to be more powerful than the parafin and had handkercheifs instead of gloves (Called them boxing gloves as a kid). It never worked; so now I just deal with it.

But then I saw this kid (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4IzR4dw1qc) and realised I can't really complain.

Edit: Apparently prescription fees went up on the 1st of April to £8.20. For three months I still thought it was £8.05. Sneaky health service...

Haha yeah I'm not too keen on doing that... I have hyperhydrosis and my hands don't react too well to being tightly wrapped :s I've been on prednisone and it's making way better progress than the ointment I put on before. My doctor told me to try a gluten and dairy free diet and I was like no, no thanks. I hardly even eat gluten to begin with, but you can't deprive me of sweet sweet bread product for a month to try to determine if I have a sensitivity or not, smart medicine woman. I do wanna get an allergy panel test done because my doctor is wondering if I touched or ate something that flared it all up. It was covering like half my palm earlier, all cracked and itchy... gross.


edit: just had a guy creepy creepy (screenshot worthy) hit on me and then i said "to be real you're not my type" and he's like, "alright, what is your type"

my high school was 4,000 kids. trust me, the size will be a blessing. you'll find out when you get to college and you learn how awful high school was for people with like 50 kids in their graduating class.

well, i don't know if you've gotten to the part in school yet where you learn more euro history, but that's really really key to understanding the book. if you haven't taken a serious euro history course yet i encourage you to do so and then you'll understand and like the ending imo. i read 1984 when i was 12 and i thought it was like... alright... but then when i read it again at 18 i understood everything.

i gotta ask though because its my favorite question among those i meet who read the book for school or something: what would be in your room 101? mine would be bees stinging me to over and over to death haha maybe put me on a high balance beam where i could fall down and injure myself but not die while the bees are out too.

They don't offer a course like that at my HS, so i'll probably have to wait until I go off to uni. As for my Room 101, it would probably involve either jumping into a pit of spiders or taking it into the sky during a storm and make me plummet to my death from there.

blaze i'd recommend reading animal farm with analysis of the allegory alongside it because tbh it's not 100% u know it now but it gives you a very very good gist of what's going on in 1984 and what the allegory there is


my room 101 would probably involve wasps and like irl jumpscares that move just little enough for there to be an element of suspense and then they jump and each time everything is dormant for a little bit longer or shorter than expected so that it's a massive source of startlement when it happens.

Can't decide whether to get my G491 exam remarked because in the other 2 physics modules I got 58/60 and 143/150 but in that one I only got 68/90 and I didn't feel it went badly, but then it's not actually going to effect my overall grade it's just I'm pretty sure it's been marked wrong. Might have to get a copy of my exam script first and sort of like remark it myself and see if I think it should change much but it's like £13 to do that and then £42 to get it remarked so that's like £55 and it won't actually do much, it just feels wrong.

 I hate the way "vacuum" is spelt.

 My father has just come into my room, rearranged my stuff, opened a closet that hasn't been opened in years, and taken my dart board so that he and my brother could play with it. It wouldn't be a problem but it's half two in the morning and I know that they'll keep it and damage or lose my darts in the process.

 I'm actually quite annoyed because it's likely that my board will be going in the shed and it'll go into the attic once they're done with it because nobody has respect for my stuff in this house. I remember coming home once to find my dice box missing and nobody had the decency to tell me what happened to it even though they left the little "pillow" I had put in there.

 To top it all off, the door to the closet is falling off and everything that had to be moved is sliding over.

 It's half past two in the morning. Why couldn't this wait until the morning? Because I mentioned that I had a dart board that I would love to hang in my room.

 Nah, he's literally taken it from me to give to my brother whilst lying to my face.

Everyone seems to know divorce is inevitable because counselling hasn't worked for quite a few years and they're only together "for the kids" but idk it makes me feel weird that i'm really involved of the lives of these kids where this could be the beginning of a strange time in their life. hangs on my conscience

and that's exactly how the upperclassmen notice you, target you, and haze you ;)

We've got something called freshman friday that we use to scare the crap out of freshmen. Basically, some people haze some of the freshmen in creative ways. Most of the time it doesn't actually happen though.

ended up finding out i had an older brother called alexander born at 27 weeks with a congenital heart defect who died same day as my birthday but a year before.


there's a moral to this obviously but to point that out now feels callous.

We've got something called freshman friday that we use to scare the crap out of freshmen. Basically, some people haze some of the freshmen in creative ways. Most of the time it doesn't actually happen though.

We had something kinda similar, our pep rally took place like 2 weeks into the year on a friday and basically if you didn't cut the pep rally you were there to haze the freshmen. Imagine 3,000 teenagers chanting "Go home freshmen!" at another group of 1,000 teenagers. Administration always flipped out, and usually at least one freshman would wind up crying because I mean damn I don't blame them it was kinda surreal my first year when randomly in the middle of this pep rally almost everyone started shouting that in unison o_o we also had some kid dress up as the "freshman catcher" with khakis and a khaki jacket with a huge net, and whenever a freshman was being loud and obnoxious he would throw the net over them. It took administration like halfway through the day to put an end to that, but I wish they just let it happen.

my friend went to a different high school and they had Freshman Friday too and a lot of the hazing took place on facebook and twitter and he ended up posting "i have an idea, let's just put all the freshmen in one room and bomb it"... he came into school the next day and got put in cuffs (but not arrested) and suspended for 10 days because that does constitute a bomb threat I suppose.

 I dunno. I wasn't obnoxious as a freshman so I never got hazed. The closest thing I did to hazing is once a freshman asked me for directions when I was a senior and we had just changed the numbering of the buildings around so I was trying to make sure I was sending her in the right direction and then she says, "wow, if you can't make up your mind, i'll just ask someone else. i don't wanna be late". so then i suddenly had a moment of clarity and i told her exactly where she needed to go for her class, the 4th floor of the english building. There is no fourth four of the english building and her actual class was 8 minutes in the other direction.

The freshman catcher thing actually sounds pretty funny tbh. I didn't get hazed because I was a nobody, and I knew a couple of people probably.

we got told all the usual stuff before we started secondary after the p7s came back from their 3 day visit. Stuff like "the sixth years will put your head down the toilets" etc and the stories about certain teachers, some were true though! We were all terrified of 'Rambo' and 'flower power'. One of the best teachers was one of the history ones, he used to let you out early for lunch if you were a Celtic fan and all of the rangers fans had to wait another 5 minutes   8)
There was always that one kid who's name preceded them in each year as well.
I remember for some reason in the cdt workshops there was one of those body outlines on the floor (I have no idea why) but the teachers used to say it was because "wee chris in first year got his arm cut off by the bandsaw and collapsed and died right in this very spot!"

I'm so hungover today oops

You'd be surprised what kind of morons they let into universities. There were people determined to be the 'popular' people on campus and some blocks of accommodation (Mostly the ones where people did PE degrees) were determined to get some sort of reputation.

Quote
Are we actually going to be receiving beatings in uni? I've always imagined the uni peeps to be from sheltered middle-class families.

Not everyone that goes to uni is sheltered. Depends on where you go. The ones I went to were former polytechnics where anybody that did a PE degree thought they were a 'lad' and the most you'll get is an 'initiation' which usually involves some sort of shot drinking for 'bantz'. I ended up with a fun bunch of people that just wanted to play Football Manager all day.

Second and third years tend to live elsewhere/off campus so you won't get your head kicked in. It's a uni. It's more grown up than school.

Just gonna stop asking my friends if they want to do stuff like why do I bother 90% of the time
how selfish of me to want to see all of my friends before I go away how very selfish!! it always seems to me that tries to make the effort too.
Same thing happened on my last two birthdays like for my 20th I was going to have a few drinks and go for a meal but that fell through. One of my friend's excuses was that she was fixing her car like ????
This year my best friend went to his 21st with his new bf instead of mine (I sound spoiled but bearing in mind we've been friends for like 17 years) even if he had shown face for half an hour but nope nothing. Another was sick which was understandable but
Been trying to arrange to meet up with two of them over the summer but there's always some excuse like I'm beginning to think they don't like me, I'm just the awkward 3rd friend when they're both together.
I honestly don't know why I bother I'm obviously just a selfish piece of crap and a doormat at that. But then I feel guilty for thinking this way bc I know some of them have stuff going on. I can't help overanalysing everything either like the ... at the end of the text suggests "no pls I would rather not"

every time i come to this thread i just get so mad about that comment i pointed out last time honestly ooooooft no offence but sometimes yall really test me.

I'll start by saying that when I originally saw Shaymin's comment it didn't sit right with me, and although I haven't got round to replying it until now it did play on my mind a bit. I do also think it'd be fair to give the benefit of the doubt and perhaps say it was lazily worded and came across wrong? However I do think there is a sort of cultural elitism that favours those that go to uni. Fair enough some of the most prestigious courses at the most prestigious universities require great logical minds that set you apart from the rest (in terms of academia) - but to dismiss those that can't, or perhaps choose not to, go to uni I find is quite an obnoxious view.

I think part of the problem stems from the way we're taught in school (at least from my experiences). You're told you start at nursery > primary > high school > college > uni or whatever without really being exposed to the alternatives. I have mates that dropped out in the first couple weeks of uni because it really just wasn't for them. Nothing to do with how smart or dumb they are. They're both working now and doing better than me aha. There shouldn't be a stigma attached to not going to uni, I for one have never felt above others because I'm doing a degree and they're not.

(apologies if I'm reading into your comment too much and broadening what you were meant to say, just thought I'd say what I think while we're here.

At uni you're gonna meet a lot of dickheads, but I suppose it varies from uni to uni, depending on who you hang around with, what kind of nights out you go on, where your uni is and how big your uni is. Someone at my uni had to drop out in freshers because he got his head kicked in and sustained pretty bad head damage. I doubt you'll see any second or third years picking on the first years physically, not because everyone's smart at uni (lol) but because in general most people grow out of that. Good people are good, arseholes are arsehols, regardless. :angel:

Everyone going to uni don't get yourself too worked up. It won't be as scary as you think, just make of it what you can. Personally it was the best choice I've ever made but on the opposite side of the coin don't be afraid to talk to someone if you don't like it - it's bound to happen to some people.

lmao talkin bout uni i found out i was a big dumb SpLD at uni and they gave me the bare minimum help they could get away with. the top uni's Special Needs depts are always terrible, never forget this.

jokes on them cos i stuck w/ it and still hobbled my broken braine thru to graduate with a 2:2 (cost me my sanity thereafter for ~a year or so, only just gettin out of it now) which aint much to other people but considerin i got that entirely myself w basically zero learning support or help from anyone else i think its an Achievement!!!!!! (http://i.imgur.com/zyqco9L.gif)

my coursework was all Firsts and my labwork was firsts but exams were all embarassing seconds and thirds cos exams are hell for a dumbo like me and what do you know examined work is 75% of the overall degree!!!!!! //windows fanfare.wav//



in my next life tho im going Vocational cos damn if that aint where the Money is while u sweep out jobs from underneath all the useless graduates

the classic "kid told they're so special and intelligent all the time but it backfires when they get out into the big bad world cos they're not actually that special or intelligent, really" scenario. could it be.......YOU'RE "too stupid to go to uni"???





p.s. dont go for game development if ur like so much other "depressed"/"mental situation deliberately left ambigious" people and cba to study cos ohhhhh it makes me anxious or w/e and then the camera pans back and ur on ur 3rd twitch stream/guild raid of the night. game design will be a misery for you as well unless you get used to the idea you will have to study and Get good at a lot of stuff you dont find interesting cos thats basically what a degree is about! cos then it turns out all the boring stuff you hated is actually important/useful!!!! see also: common First Year Art Student archetypes.

uni is basically "can u study stuff and pass exams/do coursework with a ridic workload and also network" and all the students drink cos it is a living hell. the networking aspect is really important cos its true what they say, its not what you know but who you know.


p.p.s. cos im wonderful and amazing i'll give u this seed wisdom for free: if you really care about game development and it aint just a "maybe this will make me famous on youtube for minimal effort" pipedream download yourself the Unreal Engine 4 (https://www.unrealengine.com/what-is-unreal-engine-4) or the Unity 5 Engine (http://unity3d.com/5), both free* engines that commercial game designers are using.
read tutorials etc. and make something. use blender and luxrender (also both free) for asset production if u dont want to shell out money for UE5/Unity's marketplace stuff. you will most likely need a Portfolio if you want to get into game design so you best start now

there are other game engines sure but UE4/Unity is the best start. lucky for you they moved onto a "charge the commercial users and let personal/hobbyist users off free" as a revenue-generating platform in the last half-year or so which means a lot of prospective game designers can get their feet wet before jumping in for a Commercial License. if that seems too much like a Fuss or its Too Hard then game development isn't for you either, unless you want to learn a programming language like c/c++/obj-c/java for mobile development (even tho unity and UE4 have mobile deployment iirc). hth!!!!!!!


* free until you want to start making Serious Bucks with the games u make

and there was this shop i went into on the way out of manchester that sold sandwiches and i was like, man this is a good idea im starving. and i wasnt payin attention at all and i saw "cheese" and went "thatll do nicely" and it was like £1 but i didnt care i was hungry
and i got into the car and we were halfway down the motorway when i opened it and like

it was just... two bits of bread... and a slice of cheese between them?
no butter or salad or ANYTHING just. dry bread and cheese. i checked the packaging to see if id just picked up a bad one but no thats. how it was described. bread and cheese. felt like i was dealing with rations christ.

I hate how they say it's free but it's not really free it's just a pretty long free trial and then you have to start paying. IMO Windows 7 is still perfect, but that's just me...

yeah i really hope they dont EOL windows 7 any time soon? i'd suggest linux as a third way but ughhhhhhhhhhhhh never do a linux. not even once.


i mean they only just EOL'd XP a good year or so back and they're still having trouble shifting grandmas and town councils off XP so i think we're safe on w7 for a while??? (macs are probably just as bad but i just find the allure of a Pretty Linux that actually has development put into it too alluring right now cos i do love some parts of linux like the apt-get functions etc. gnome 3 = least terrible linux)

p.s. any windows 7/8 people dont install the (optional) KB3075249 and KB3080149 updates cos they patch in the telemetry/keylogging crap on w7/w8 and all

 honestly didnt think they'd be breakin the One Good One Bad rule any time soon but welp here we are, they're doing the whole Facebook/Google thing SIGH. maybe this is just like when all us windows 98 users had to sit through windows 2000 and windows ME (anyone remember that? no ofc not cos it sucked so bad) until they finally released XP

I don't like having to wait until September to find out what's happening with me going to sixth form. Cue a 'they said no so you'll have to go elsewhere' thing on the Friday before sixth form starts. I wouldn't be surprised seeing as how things have gone this year already, but I'll just cross my fingers and hope lol

 Ah, it's difficult to trust one of my friends right now because he's become fairly deceitful and he is becoming narcissistic and fairly irritating. I'm torn between trying to keep this friendship going and drifting apart which is horrendous since we've been friends for about 7 or 8 years.

 It's worse because I'm usually like this when going through depression but I'm fine and I'm thinking straight. He likes having "power" and refuses our groups to mingle and he probably spreads crap about me to any of his friends that show interest. Actually, I'm fairly certain he does since he usually tells people about the one or two horrible things I've done opposed to the numerous nice things I've done.

 He's always telling people about how homophobic and racist I am when he's the one awkwardly making rape jokes, calling people faggots, and slagging off my friend because she's from India. It's like he's in denial about his own traits so he just tells people that I'm all these things so when he slips up he can say "oops, I guess it's rubbed off on me". It's legitimately annoying when I'm the one who's always stopping him when he's being racist/homophobic/sexist because it makes me uncomfortable and it makes him look stupid.

 It's awful when you realise how twisted one of your best friends has become.

This friend keeps whining about how he thinks people (read: me) are ignoring him and avoiding him in chat. It's funny because he clearly has nothing better to do with his life and days off work than just sit and do bugger all in a chat. Some of us actually have things to do aside from chat-dwelling, y'know? (Yes, even I do, how amusing)

 Man... watching this Carrie film is difficult.

 I thought Carrie was meant to be a plumper lass who wasn't so much of a looker but they've made her thin and attractive. I always thought the mother was a larger woman too? Everything is weird because it's set in the present day and all the characters seem "off".  The book even states that Carrie eats out of boredom and that she has pimples and messy hair and a "dull, stupid, bovine face".

 My copy was printed in 1981 so things have probably changed within the book but idk... the film didn't do one of my favourite books any justice.

I think once I go to my induction tomorrow I'll have a focus instead of sitting in my room all day lol. It's the first night of freshers too but I'm not going out! Like this sounds silly but I've never been clubbing? I prefer drinking in a pub or at a house party or something where I can talk to people. My flatmate is with her dad just now, I'm assuming he's flying home tomorrow.

my professor who was really unsympathetic towards me when i was in the car crash just emailed me back this morning after i asked if he had my attendance records for my insurance company FOR the car crash

"Elizabeth,

I gave all my attendance records to the school week by week as the semester progressed. I have no specific information to provide. What I can provide is that your grades early in the semester were very low, failing at one point, and you improved dramatically late in the semester. You proved you were a good student with your late work. If this helps, let me know and I will put it in letter form for your use."

Of course I was failing early in the semester! I begged for some sympathy and extensions because I couldn't do all the work I collected for 2 weeks on time and you blew me off. Of course when I was back on track and you being an unhelpful ass didn't matter anymore I started improving. Thanks for the D letter grade and nothing else, you jerk.

I've been told that I should ideally go to a new college, so I can have a fresh start and recover from things properly.

The issue is that the nearest colleges are too far away to walk to (6 miles, at a minimum). And at those nearby colleges, certain people go there. If I go to either one, I'm not sure how long I'd last. I'm probably gonna have to get the bus there. That is another issue because money and my mum is not happy about that at all.

I'm even trying to sort out a bursary so that the train costs will actually be covered for. But seriously, mum is being the most unsupportive human being about this. She has had nothing but bad things to say about this, and she blames me and NOBODY else for the exclusion.

I did most of my packing in 2 or 3 days, it's plenty time! It's much quicker if you have someone to help you but if not just be ruthless about what you take and don't take. Clothes I wasn't sure about I just left at home or put them to go to charity or something.  Just make sure you keep clothes/make up etc out on the day you move and then make a list of last minute/random stuff to remember like phone chargers. I kept a list beside my bed and added to it, you will forget stuff! Also I wouldn't buy food until you get there unless you have to, I had to go to my new store I'd be working at anyway but it's good to see how much kitchen space you're going to get as well.
Make use of the washing machine while you can lol

I think my favourite whiskey was pulled from shelves because it has a chemical found in anti-freeze.

Yeah, it was fireball. I was a big JD guy for years but I seem to have gone off it lately. Been buying the four cans of Banks's from the local as it's cheaper than the real ale.

Aftershock or Cointreau maybe?

Cointreau's an orange liqueur, so it might not be that. To be honest, sticking Red Bull in ANYTHING is counter-productive.

 Aye, we use Monster over here for Jägerbombs but combining an upper and a downer sounds like an awful thing to do to your insides. After my last incident I tend not to drink spirits unless they're straight since even the taste of Strongbow makes me cringe nowadays. It's awkward being the only one drinking Hooch aha.

Yep! They've replaced it with some weird Jägermeister look-like... Aftershock or Cointreau maybe? It didn't seem to sell very well here either compared to JD and JB :(

Must have taken some extra time for the news to cross the pond. Me and my friends used to love that stuff this time last year until we learned that. We were like "well this already hurts my belly and THAT doesn't put my mind at ease at all". if you guys have it over there try jim bean maple! not cinnamon but the maple whiskey combo is nice

i'm notorious for mixing red bull with jager... i have really good water drinking habits though and unless you have a bad heart having just 1 isn't gonna kill you and if you'll have more than 1 energy drink in a sitting i fear for you tbh

Plus I'm only gonna get three days to wash and pack everything I own?????

I packed the night before! I understand it's stressful because stuff is starting up, but believe me, you don't need to bring an absurd amount of stuff to school :) your room will probably be tiny, i hardly had room for a minifridge this year.

 I think that the only local supplier didn't care since they might be the ones that sell "legal highs" to the younger kids - they must have had a telling off or something.

 Ooh! You can no longer play Destiny without the new DLC! You can play strikes but they're locked on the easy difficulty so you get literally nothing out of them and the PvP is now restricted to TTK users only. All the vanguard gear and crucible gear is TTK only.

 Literally every feature that was available to everyone is now only available to those who bought TTK. It doesn't even matter if you bought the previous DLCs because all of their items have been upgraded so that only those who bought TTK can use them.

 The worst part is that little kids are defending Bungie saying "hur hur well get a job hur hur" when they've had their parents buy them the dlc :laugh: sorry kiddo, a lot of us have bills to pay and/or can't find work.

You don't need to take EVERYTHING you own. You won't have room. My missus made that mistake and I don't recall ever seeing the floor in her room due to the sheer amount of clothes she has.

One of my mates had about 60% of his clothes, his laptop, Xbox and TV as well as kitchen stuff. That was it.

I'm so confused the hospital sent me a letter saying that I'm not going to get my eye op within the 12 week waiting time since my last app but I knew that anyway like ??? They said I could contact another hospital in Scotland to see about doing it, which I could do but I'd prefer to recover at home and not while at uni. When I was last there they provisionally agreed to either the 21st of Dec or the 4th of Jan because that's the only time I'd be able to do it. I suppose it's a good thing they're letting me know but still
Might phone them on Monday and just say what dates would be best again. Like I've been waiting almost a year now anyway so another 3/4 months isn't going to make that much of a difference. Stupid eye!  >:(

 I've got a compulsory lecture on Monday then a course introduction.

 College was great since I was really relaxed and although I would get good grades, I would spend a lot of time joking around in lessons. I spent most of my photography lessons Photoshopping Phil Mitchell and Ainsley Harriot and sticking the images on our display wall and windows.

 Anyway, university is a new setting and I can't really be bothered for more icebreakers after the amount of times I did them in college. I think I'm worried that these psychology students are going to be like the psychology kids in college since the college kids (here) had their heads up their asses and were the really weird "I'm a complex puzzle and psychology is my way of understanding myself" kind of kids. It also didn't help that I was in sociology and they thought they were better than us lol.

One of our flat mates suffers from anxiety and (we speculate) perhaps bipolar. We're all really worried about her because she suddenly became horrendously angry yesterday and screamed at us all despite having being quiet the whole time we've been here. She then left the building and didn't return until she came back along with a councillor last night at 7. Since then we haven't seen her but we assume she's in her room because we heard her on her phone about 1pm but we've heard nothing since then We don't know if she's eatin or if she's got food in there or what but we're all really worried but like trying to give her space. It's just kinda difficult when you don't know anyone and we all just wanna be there for her even though she said she hates us (with literally no provocation whatsoever)

 I've had a lot to drink and I even had a shot of absinthe that was like 89.9% volume and I think that topped the night off, to be honest since it made my throat dry and my vision blur.

 I think that I'm mentally on the brink of being out of it but I'm physically aware of the amount of alcohol in my system and I'm avoiding having a cup of tea as I don't want the milk to curdle in my belly since I'm at that stage where throwing up will probably cause me to black out.

 Even if I throw up and black out... at least we beat the English on their home turf. It was a good game though, I didn't think we would win either since the entire game was going against us until the very end and we didn't have Halfpenny. Can't pretend that England didn't play really well though. It was a good game.

I'm demisexual, and finding a boyfriend/girlfriend who isn't just looking to Grey their Warden is an absolute nightmare. Especially when I can't even have nice conversations with people without them interpreting my attention as a proposition or flirting. For example:

1) To the dude I had a nice conversation with about Dragon Age: stop sending me pictures of yourself on facebook! I, LIKE PHARAOH RAMASSES II, REMAIN UNMOVED.

2) Struck up a friendly conversation with a man in line for lunch at Subway about the heat and the stupidly long line. Three minutes into the conversation he asked if I was single and if he could call me up after 7 (Three... MINUTES....). Proceeded to tell the man that I am asexual (it's an easier explanation), and he outright says that HE CAN WAIT. WOW.

3) Friend that I've known for years only recently learned about my breakup last year. Usually cool friend then asks if we can hang out and drink at my place, and when I ask why, he explains his intentions outright.

I... am so upset. I miss hugs and kisses and being in a relationship with someone, but the chances of finding someone who isn't looking for that other thing is so tiny that I want to cry, and have cried on more than one occasion.

This cold is making my nose run almost non-stop and I have to keep running out of lesson to hoard tissue paper in my pockets for my nose. Then the tissue runs out quick and I'm like 'gotta run and get some more!!!'

At least it shouldn't last too much longer, maybe?

I've got band tonight but still haven't had a chance to get a new trumpet yet! Was going to today after our project stuff but we walked around most of the city centre and then I was too lazy to go back up to princes street.
I'm in two minds as well if after band should I walk home or get two buses. I've been walking back home myself but it's dark and I've got lost each time I've went home lmao. Buses would take longer and I want to watch some of gbbo but I might not die so

 I've lost my provisional license and it could be literally anywhere. I'm actually slightly anxious about replacing it because I'm not sure where my old citizen's card is if they require it. Legitimately bricking it lol.

 FFS, it must have fallen out of my card holder whilst out and about but now I'm not going to be able to get a new one for ages. It's not even like I was dicking about with it either. I'm really annoyed by this.

 I also can't find my citizens card.

^ I lost my driving license at uni and was still able to get into bars based on the fact I was losing my hair at 20.

My mate used to use his tattoo as ID. He's got to be eighteen to have one, so therefore he was old enough to be let in. Don't know if this works with this challenge 25 thing that everyone's doing lately.

 That's actually pretty nifty to know since I've shaved my head because of a receding hairline. Most of the time I just nod at the bouncers and it works but if you hit Wind Street, the bouncers have to check your ID unless you're a gorgeous bomb-shell of a woman.

 It's because I've got a date coming up and if I can't get into a building with here, it'll completely kill the mood :laugh: it's bad enough that I ran out of money during the first hour of our first date since I owe her a good 5 drinks or so.

Only food/drink that I've had since 10pm on the 31st is apple juice.

I thought this pain in my side was from my period, but i went to the doctor on a whim for pain medication and they were like "WOW ur appendix is, like, totes about to burst- ur going to the OR"

So i had my appendix taken put 12 hours ago with a laparoscopy :)

Laparoscopy means instead of cutting me open like a fish they use 3 small holes instead, and to do that operation they had to pump CO2 into my belly, and only now is the gas moving and escaping. Lots of toots ensued.

 Like... damn. It's not like I'm flushing it down the drain by going to fresher's fayre every night since every transaction has been on transport or books and my bus pass apart from one night when I spent £25 on food and a few drinks with the guys which was partially to celebrate officially getting into uni.

Like idk even though I'm 4-5 weeks into the course I still feel like I'm not good enough to be there, despite obviously having a good portfolio and interview in March. Right now I can't picture myself as a 'designer'? I applied for s mentoring thing the uni offers where you get paired up with someone in the industry and you both meet and get advice from them and i think I've got a placement in January so I'm hoping that will make me decide if I want to go into design or not. My plan has been to go into teaching if it doesn't work out but I feel like I'd have wasted the past 3+ years studying design? I'd probably be a primary teacher but then it's the whole thing of would I even get into a course lmao

Unless I get the bus from uni to town, I can't catch a bus home until about 8 and there is no reason to be going in for an hour when the lecturer reads everything from the Power Point and makes jokes about paedophilia and the Catholic Church.

 Left the lecture at 5:45, waited for the bus until it was meant to come then as I left to walk, it drove past me. Got to the bus stop in town but then I had to walk into the centre of town just to get into the side entrance of the bus stop and by that time I had missed the bus.

 Like, ffs. Not everyone lives on campus or near the uni. I wouldn't be able to make 9am lectures and I can't get home from 5pm lectures.

I think if you go to uni now you're supposed to get one for a kind of meningitis that's more common among people living in places like uni halls and stuff? I got mine before I went away. Honestly I'm surprised I don't have an extreme phobia of needles after the amount of blood tests and stuff I got when I was little lmao. Have way too many tiny scars and weird marks from it all. 

So today I learned that after I graduate in 2017 my course will be no more. Due to cut backs and stuff and 'low numbers' the uni is going to fit aspects from my course into all of the other design ones. It's a little crap tbh like I probably wouldn't have went to uni at all if I hadn't got into this course. it's one of the few that takes on students with my type of hnd straight into 3rd year, instead of making you do 4 years, even though you're qualified (lol Dundee)!

Because there are groups of people that don't get their kids vaccinated. They're stupid enough to think that you can catch autism from it. Now (particularly in the US) there are perfectly preventable conditions coming back and killing/disabling children because they were not vaccinated.

Because I was so ill with my asthma in an urban area as a kid I had all my shots LONG before any of the kids at my school in rural East Anglia did. Some didn't get their TB jab until they were 14.

Then again...with some people you just know what they're like (by just seeing them talking to someone). I'm probs wrong but eh, being corrected means I'll learn...?

Ugh, had 4 bad days in a row before today, and today feels like a zillion times better even though it was still pretty rubbish. Got a form for the college counselor just in case my feelings continue to be horrible, so there's a safety net somewhere.

 I might just stay home and write up my lecture notes. I also had to email an old lecturer from college to ask if I can put them down as a reference for this volunteering thing.

 Friday should be the day when you can meet your friends, get food, and start drinking. Friday is the day when I leave at 3, come home at 7, have food at 7:30, a bath at 8, and bed at 9. It completely kills the day.

 Went out with the guys tonight and it was pretty crap. After our first round we went off to a dive bar and everyone complained about prices and I bought a flat bottle of Bud.

 Then, on the way back to where we started, we bumped into a girl that I casually date and she was out of her skull so she came with us and she was in an awful state so in the end, everyone went home because they wanted to leave me and her together since they thought it was really funny that I have a "girlfriend".

 Once everyone left, I walked her to where the taxis come and she said goodbye and stuff so I turned the corner and sat on the bench so I would be able to see the taxi drive past (because I was actually worried) and after about a minute I walked around to make sure she hadn't died or anything and she was walking home. I even rang her to see if she would be safe or if she wanted company but she said she's fine.

 Like... damn, I'm actually worried about her since she was in heels too but she was adamant that she didn't need company and I would end up slapping someone if I was in her position so I stopped asking.

 Such worry.

Really want a job to help my Mum out with money trouble (because heck if ANYONE can afford to find two children in University - who get 0 financial help from faculties - a small family business and two mortgages I haven't met them) but nowhere will give me a job????

I applied for a very basic part-time retail job in H&M but my application was declined because I have insufficient experience. Well heck, how am I supposed to get experience if no one will give me a job because I have no experience???

Apparently two weeks work experience in the library just doesn't count for anything these days.

Library experience =/= retail experience and being a student means you won't be as flexible as other possible candidates (flexibility is a massive thing for  some companies, even for the lowest hours part time jobs). Getting hired with any job these days can be tough so it's just something you've got to keep grinding on with.

^ legit. my advice is do as many online applications as possible (so google will just input your info into the fields) and try to make a decent resume and attach it. and then write down all of the places you applied to and in a week or two call all of them, just ask for a manager, and when the manager picks up say who you are, and tell them to check out your application. call them on a weekly basis until they get you to stop bothering them by a. hiring you, or b. telling you to screw off. try to actually go into locations where you really want the job and ask an employee if you can speak to a manager and talk to the manager in person, that usually puts you ahead.

if you want a job STAT apply to restaurants, the turnover is usually pretty crazy and use the experience at the restaurants to try to get into whatever area you'd like better. your application can get lost in a pile so make sure you're on the forefront of their minds when they look through them

edit: bonus advice: if they tell you they're not accepting applications that's code for "call back in 2 weeks"

I applied for I don't know how many jobs over two years after leaving school and then ended up getting a job at my local Morrisons, still there almost a year later. I didn't have any ~retail ~ experience so I started volunteering in a charity shop, I was only there for a few months once a week but it was enough that I could bs about having some experience!
Some tips I learned in the time:
- try and get a small voluntary job in a charity shop, they're always looking for people! If you're friendly and keen then it won't matter about the skills, you can build them up.
- read the job description throughly. if you are allowed to send a cv and a cover letter always tie in your cover letter with what the job description is after, really sell yourself!
- You'll have plenty of stories about team work/time management/etc you can use from school or hobbies, you can tie most experiences in. When asked about team working 90% of the time I spoke about playing in my wind band.
- some companies love psychometric testing, I applied for Tesco and Asda quite a few times but never got past the first stage, even though I thought I was putting the customer first.
- but yeah like Alex said be really flexible about what hours you can do and try widen your search as much as you can. If you're in a city with a uni though it shouldn't be too much of a problem to find jobs.
- The hoops you have to jump through for a retail job especially are unreal, it can be pretty discouraging after putting in lots of effort and getting knocked back, you will find something eventually!

Oh my god. The fridge in our kitchen wasn't working so we emailed the accommodation team who've sent us a new fridge.... Which is only half the size of the last one.


What the heck are 8 people supposed to do with a fridge the size of a standard freezer??? I'm actually crying - my accommodation is THE biggest rip off of my entire life. £118 a week for a room with squeaky doors and cupboards, thin walls, a toilet that can barely flush anything, a radiator that won't turn off or down and makes creepy noises all the time so I can't sleep, precisely one square cm of cupboard space, nowhere to store all my pots and pans, even less space in the freezer and now a pathetic little fridge.

My student loan doesn't even cover the cost of living here so we are actually paying money right now for me to be here, on top of my already pretty spectacular debt. I am actually crying.

 The last assignment was an annotated bibliography and, as a photographer, I naturally annotated the journal articles I wanted to use as I would have annotated my photography. Plenty of "I"s in that assignment although we're told to be professional and academic about it? How awkward would it be to annotate journals and explain why I'm using them without using "I"?

 I also didn't mention qualitative/quantitative or the populations and variables for any of the journals either. I was just whizzed off that we keep receiving "tutorial" assignments to get us into the swing of things because these assignments don't matter and they're not psychology.

If you're writing about your own work or reflecting on it then 1st person is fine. If it's about other people's work then use the 3rd person to write in. I'm studying design so it might be completely different but for one of my classes I've got to do a lit review and a reflective piece. So the review would be in the 3rd person and the reflective in the 1st.
So if you used an article you could say "this article is useful because it has xyz and shows that abc" etc, or if it's not good say why. It can take a while to get used to but yeah always write in the 3rd person unless told otherwise! Make sure you know what style of referencing and citing you need to use as well and don't leave them until the very end! Makes it sooooo much easier to do it as you go along lol

idk about you but a lot of academic work i did required the third person passive voice. i dont recall much instances in my entire degree where i actually used the first person tbh

e.g. "i added sulphuric acid (0.025 dm3) to the mixture while stirring" would get you laughed out a journal for making a basic undergraduate mistake, its all in passive "sulphuric acid (0.025 dm3) was added to the solution with stirring" kind of voice. this might be what they're asking for but in that vague "we wont tell you everything" way that uni often does

a common way to test for the Academic Passive Voice which i found helped is to see if you can suffix "...by zombies" on the end or in there somewhere and it still makes sense

"i added sulphuric acid (0.025 dm3) to the mixture while stirring by zombies" nope
"sulphuric acid (0.025 dm3) was added to the solution by zombies" slightly constrained, but you get the idea



re: referencing make it easy for yourself and get a BiBTeX plugin for word and figure out some sorta Reference Management software like zotero (edit: actually zotero has its own Word plugin n all), and you can basically autogenerate references and a bibilography in the style needed. unless they're being right dicks they will commonly just say "cite it in natural sciences bibliography style" or w/e and you can commonly find a stylesheet for the bibtex plugin to do this.

its all a right PITA but this is how academia is!!! //showbiz hands//

 Dang, I did it 50:50 so when it comes back I'll know what they were asking for. It's just frustrating since this assignment was set by library staff for a module that's just the worst. We're using APA so I've been using the universities iFind to cite the books that I've been using and they've posted a guide on how to reference so I'm feeling confident about that since I've been using that awkward Wikipedia style referencing.

 You could maybe buy a new chain for your necklace and put the pendent on that? Unless it's like... gold or silver then it'll probably cost a nipple or two. Maybe a goldsmith will be able to sort it?

It's just incredibly frustrating when the library staff who set the assignment clearly don't care enough to elaborate. It just felt really dry having to use "This article is..." at the start of every sentence. Especially when they want "flair".



 I didn't know what to quote and what not to quote so this post is massive. I've just completed a 1,200 word essay and it took like... four hours lol.

 Thanks though, to both of you.

idk about you but a lot of academic work i did required the third person passive voice. i dont recall much instances in my entire degree where i actually used the first person tbh

'Experience' modules on my undergrad like mixing and mastering, music for film etc we were allowed to use first person, and the same for report writing on my teaching degree.

Everything else was third. Guess there's a time and place.

This also pushed me towards staying home for my only lecture today because I'll be missing everything and the slides go past so quickly. Also, if it's intelligence it'll just be a bunch of diagrams rather than things to copy down.

 So I've got Adele's 'Hello' on full blast in one eardrum in the hopes that the chorus unclogs my ear.

I couldn't sleep after reading an article. That's my first world problem: losing sleep out of pure unadultered rage.

Read an article about a woman who refused to provide medical care for her 3 kids with whooping cough for 150 days- all because she wanted to find a 'natural' remedy.

I want to wring this woman's neck?? If a few weeks of whooping cough can give someone permanent lung damage, how broken are those poor children's lungs? How brittle are their ribs now? Their throats must be raw from all of the throwing up and fits of coughing! And this woman ACTIVELY REFUSED them medical care??? For one HUNDRED and FIFTY days??? And in this article, with direct quotes from this woman's blog, all she could think about was "how nobody believed in her".

Unacceptable. She should not have custody over those kids. Refusing medical care is abuse! These kids were barely 10, too! They didn't have the knowledge or the power to refuse their mother's idiocy and seek help for themselves! Their opinion on the matter wasn't taken, and no consent was given- they were forced to suffer.

It makes me SO MAD. SO. MAD.

 Went into town to search for gym shirts and since Sports Direct had a 2 for £5 offer for ages I checked them first but nah. They've upped it to 2 for £7 or 3 for £10... so I bought an umbrella instead which was hella awkward since it wasn't raining and it was huge.

 Also, I keep meaning to read these books but then I find myself dicking around online and it's annoying because I bought a book called "Bees" (it looks hilarious) and it's from the narrative of a bee and they talk and at one point one bee snarls at another and it's ridiculous. Still haven't opened it!

'oh that meat looks too dry can you open a new one for me' *has to open whole new joint of meat for 4 slices*
'can I have 2 pounds of gammon?' *watches me slice it* 'oh sorry I meant in money haha silly me!'
I wish I was still in the bakery I hate the deli, it's awful. I still feel very out of my depth and because I was in my old store for a year the managers seem to think I should know stuff but I wasn't trained on this department?? at least the staff are nice though! honestly if it wasn't for the fact I love my old store I'd have quit by now

Do you have the medical insurance to investigate further? Fainting is NOT GOOD, and while we barely know each other I'm still worried :c

Tachycardia is a condition, not just a symptom. If it's been happening for years, it could be the potential culprit. It's been happening for 7-8 years, right? Tachycardia has a higher chance of developing in your teens, usually around a growth spurt. Your heart rate speeds up when your body and organs grow in order to adapt, but sometimes it doesn't slow down or adapts poorly to the new size due to overactive/underactive/irregular electrical impulses.

I can talk about this all day, but you won't get a proper confirmation unless you go to a doctor.

Not like the last one, though. You need a competent doctor and I don't have any relatives in the UK.

i have the nhs so i am all good on that front. doctor said i should try and up my salt and fluid intake (which oddly enough is a lot more difficult than it sounds lol) but like fo real if it was dehydration, i'd have had like a million kidney stones by now.

that and also my brother and mum also have tachycardiac symptoms sometimes so like is my family full of dehydrated people?? but i guess they gotta get the obvious out of the way anyway, but still... smh

also he said i should get off of codeine like pls man i have just been put on it for the pain because over the counter meds no longer work for me :(

i also saw the tachycardia happen on the heart monitor print out (cause i had one on for 24 hours) and it was a stable heartbeat then it just went freaking out upwards like a weird lump on the chart like how can one look at that and think "ah yes this person needs more water and salt"

Halls of Residence. If you value peace and quiet just please do not go in halls of residence. I have not had a proper night's sleep since before we went to Majorca and I just want to cry.

My entire kitchen are the loveliest people on earth and, like me, value peace & quiet sometimes - like yeah, of course we like a bit of fun but past eleven on a Sunday night just isn't the time.

So the other four kitchens decided tonight would be the night for hide and seek, and I stress that we would have locked the door to our flat if we hadn't been told not to in the first week because of fire safety issues. Anyway this late night hide and seek involved running through our kitchen and making (for no apparent reason) tons of noise.

At first we politely asked them not to - since none of us were playing and we are all up before 8 tomorrow, but they didn't stop coming through?? So we asked them again and it seems that now they're just making noise to spite us all and it's plain rude. Anyway I've still got hope that they'll all drop out and maybe then I can actually sleep?

Although that's a long shot because I have real trouble sleeping here and most nights I'm awake until 4/5 not even doing anything. I just can't sleep. I'm so tired I don't even care if they decide a good course of action is to egg my windows - at least they'll be able to catch that on CCTV and maybe they'll get thrown out of halls.


I didn't ask to be in halls I just didn't really have a choice and now I have to put up with all their crap -.-

Don't waste your maintenance loan on halls. No matter what. The people are just as bad as the buildings (which are pretty terrible)

don't know if it's my new flatmate or someone in another flat but waking people up by screaming (or singing???) at the back of 7 in the morning is not the best thing to do. it's nice to know you don't have classes today like some of us! I was only running on 5 hours sleep anyway at that point it's cool.
had 0 problems with noise until now besides from my flatmate I was with in our old block cleaning at 1.30am, or really loud Skype calls but thankfully she's pretty quiet even when she's been out.
I'm thinking it's the one who was in a flat herself I've not met her yet but nope she can get lost if she thinks I'm putting up with that crap!!!!

Halls of residence are absolutely awful. I would report all those people immediately to your warden (if you have one) or the people who look after your halls.

the way some people act when they get to uni, even now in November, is ridiculous. My halls at Bangor were party central and I can barely recall any day that my hall didn't have a party. I'm still never forgiving them for the one that started at 7pm and didn't finished til 11am. Or the time some stranger was talking to the warden outside my door and tried to open my door like... why dude

This is University, you shouldn't really expect anything different. Especially first year, where for a lot of degrees it doesn't even count towards the final score. Any opportunity for fun will be taken, even if they aren't the most considerate at times.

for the genuine insomnia problem Chloe go speak with the Uni Doctor, they'll advise and maybe prescribe something to help (although you don't want to become reliant on it, so it just depends how they'll treat it)

 Might pick up Fallout 4 whilst I'm in town and put it away for Christmas. New Vegas had such a good collector's edition but it was also released on my birthday. Doesn't this one come with a pipboy? Wasn't it impossible to remove them without killing the wearer in Fallout 3? Idk, I never played the ones before Fallout 3 so I don't know what happens with the lore.

 I remember dismembering the group of raiders in that supermarket near Megaton in Fallout 3 and because I put different limbs in different fridges around the store, it glitched out and broke the spawn. Pretty neat stuff tbh, one fridge had heads, another had legs, then arms, and then one had torsos in it. They never spawned back either lol.

In Vault 101 you get one on your 10th birthday (whether that's the same for all vaults that haven't gone to pot I'm not sure). In New Vegas you get it after leaving Doc Mitchell's house and from watching the E3 Demo for F4 he picks it up off a dead body in the vault before he heads back into Boston.

Yeah but I didn't wanna do that because I had 8ams every day and they had horrible speakers and I don't wanna hear their distortion when they turn their music up.

What I did do though was call them out on Yik Yak and ask for them to turn it down and when it didn't stop I called PS. Then during normal hours whenever I wasn't in my room I'd point my big real bassy speakers at their wall and blast it so they couldn't take naps or watch TV in peace. For the record I'm not SUPER passive aggressive, I would have knocked on their door and cussed them out in person but they were in another section of the building I couldn't get into.

Learn in manual because then you'll be qualified to drive manual and auto, if you do your test in auto that's all you can drive, so it widens your options a little bit.

I'm doing mine in double lessons, and I'm hoping to have a good chunk done by 20 hours, if not completely done by 30. 15 lessons doesn't sound like an adequate amount of time, but we shall see. I have enough money for 15-20 hours, but hopefully when I get paid I'll be able to afford the rest. Gotta get the ball rolling with learning the theory too, but I'm in a new job too, so I've got a lot to learn with that

 Ooh, I'm hoping to do my test after my twentieth lesson at the latest then, I enjoyed my first lesson because it felt a little like Need for Speed except I wasn't driving a Bugatti Veyron into oncoming traffic at over 150mph. Might do my CBT before Christmas and get the bike up and running so I can get a delivery job to supplement the driving lessons.

 This business going on in France is quite saddening tbh. The second terrorist attack this year with an attempted third about two or three months ago.

I've been pushed to my limit on stress and work. I hate Wuthering Heights with a passion and i've been told that I can sparknote it, and even with that technology at hand, I still read the required parts after sparknoting it (I hate being at least partially honest). I still have to finish another project for tomorrow and there's a huge group project for English to do. On top of it all, there's a huge quiz in math tomorrow that I don't feel ready for. I feel like my body is shutting down and this weekend I will flat out crash whether I like it or not.

Allow me to make some acknowledgements: I would like to thank Wuthering Heights, big group projects, teachers who assign a lot of work at the same time, and finally school in general. I hate you all.  :)

Edit: French Project done, but I still hate everything I stated above.

As someone who's had glasses since for as long as they can remember usually the first few weeks after getting a new pair your eyes will take a bit to adjust to them, even if your prescription hasn't changed. Everything seems a lot clearer and sharper but then goes back to normal.

It has my university work on it and it's breaking and when it comes down to things, it has very little space on it and I've been saving my excel spreadsheets on it until I can buy a new one and not have to worry.

 I don't understand how "no" means anything other than "no". When I said "it's full, there's no space left" I didn't mean "emotionally blackmail me into handing out my USB".

one of them likes to hear my opinions but arguing with him is the most frustrating thing ever. just because... imagine a crazy person in youtube/facebook comments. now imagine that in real life right in front of you. this is the level of irrationality and stupidity i deal with when this old guy tries to get me to explain my views.

 I just helped another student by filling out their questionnaire which was presented as a questionnaire on internet use.

 Nope! It was an autism test! Ffs we had a lecture today on how it's unethical to lie to the participant and how you have to make a decision of whether the results are worth lying to your participants about and I can't imagine what astonishing benefits will be discovered from this questionnaire tbh so, in my eyes, it's rather unethical to trick people into a test and throw in a "YOU'RE POTENTIALLY AUTISTIC!" in at the end.

 We receive conditioning in college to make sure our English is at its finest and then in university you're met with typos, spelling mistakes, and sentences that don't make sense.

When I had my last appointment I think a date in December or January was provisionally agreed but I've not heard anything since! I don't know how quickly after you get word is the time between getting an operation?? The only other date I can do is February as I've got a week off work then so I'd be able to go home.

 Decided to cut across the beach to get to university quicker today since I was busting for a wee.

 Sand is horrible. A lot of the sand looks solid and flat but the moment you step on it, you realise that it's soft sand with a thin layer of hard sand on top so that was horrendous to walk on and I also stepped on something slimy whilst thinking it was a rock with a plastic bag stuck to it so I'm just glad I was wearing my running shoes since I think it was a jellyfish and I would have potentially torn it open with my other shoes.

 On the plus side, I got to uni 10 minutes quicker and managed to get my wee. The only other toilets at the bus stop are the ones you have to pay for or the ones that nobody knows about where you'll be stuck using a urinal 100% of the time and you get creeps who look at your apparatus.

 Why can't there just be nice toilets in the city? We're spoiled for choice here but the moment you get into the city it's like... why aren't there any toilets anywhere?

 Also had 3 hours sleep and combined with a 20/30 minute power-walk across the sand and 30 minutes with HiiT in the gym, I spent those three hours and had to come home because I was falling asleep in first lecture.

 I have spent the last 6 or 7 hours typing up a lab report for a study that I didn't even carry out. During the "methods" stage I had to say that the participants had to answer a questionnaire - which we did - but the questionnaire must have been typed up by someone who's mother-tongue isn't English because all the statements - that we had to apply to ourselves - came off as either really edgy or vague and this would have been covered if someone else proofread the questionnaire.

 I also decided to try and find a correlation in the data so I'm like "yeah let's use Spearman's rho" then after deleting my previous stuff since this must have been my third or fourth choice, I calculate everything and then I can't find a critical value since N was a big number and the highest critical value chart I could find only went up to 100.

 So then I'm sat there trying to finish up my discussion and I'm stuck constantly saying "THERE'S A VERY STRONG CORRELATION" but, obviously, because I couldn't get the statistical value I couldn't confirm.

 I ALSO FORGOT TO INCLUDE MY HYPOTHESIS BUT I'VE SENT IT OFF NOW SO OH WELL.

 I'm just really lucky that this doesn't count towards any main marks. Hopefully the feedback will point me in the right direction.

 Also, I've got some form of tonsillitis coming on so I'm taking penicillin and my knee is hurting because I've spent the last 6 hours in the coldest room in our house.

 All in all, it has been a stressful night.

I getting a little Fed up with Lord Raven. I have posted a topic about any experiences you've had in the world of gaming. I talk about how much of a show-off I am in the final boss of Wario Land 2, and then he's accusing me of only playing Wario Land. And I'm sure this is not the 1st time Lord Raven has said something in one of my topics that I don't particularly like.

 That feeling when you watch a game review because you genuinely want to buy it and the reviewer is as salty as the Dead Sea because they're either not good at it or because they're used to using mods to exploit the game and generally can't get into unlocking things with their own efforts.

 Pretty much why I stick to theRadBrad nowadays since he plays console and doesn't have the saltiness of PC reviewers.

So? If I was like this every time someone wasn't nice to me, I would've been banned by now. Calling out another user like that is just asking for a fight, and if it happens, you'd be the one instigating it. If you have a problem with him, do as Petzbreeder said and take it to PM's. Otherwise, you locked the topic. Move on.

If you're not in the starting XI or on the bench, most football teams expect you to turn up to support the team. You've actually done something right by turning up despite not being needed.

Speaking of periods (and that's not something you hear all the time), I've just had to watch my other half go through the motions. It's a wonder I'm still alive.

 The hot water has been faulty for the last year now so it's hit-or-miss whether I can have a hot bath. Probably had my first hot bath in about a month the other day but the water isn't working tonight. I've offered to pay to have it fixed but everyone brushes it aside because it'll require effort.

Also like in September just before I went to uni I payed my mum's sky bill. I've done it once as a one off a few times.

I know that, however, it just kind of sucks to just stand around and do nothing the whole time. Maybe i'm just too used to starting on JV or something.

Took my exam today and with that grade, i'm barely holding onto an A, but there's still 1 more grade to be put in before everything's in and I don't have a great feeling about it.

Then there's my friend who brags about being a great editor for his media productions class. So I get him to edit our little newscast project (someone in my group was his gf), and he screws it up. There was no time to fix it because the first time we were able to see it was when we were presenting. Thankfully I had to go to my exam so I bailed after the intro.

every month i get an injection into my "hip" as they call it (its straight up my buttcheek) and the injection takes a while to prep so ill just be standing there in this doctors office with my ass hanging out for like 5 minutes making idle banter with a nurse... it happens so often but i still feel so ashamed to just BE THERE with SKIN EXPOSED

but also literally every time i go to get blood taken (like twice a month uuugh) they hit a bum vein and spend like 40 minutes stabbing around my arm to Locate The Blood and ill come out after with 7 miles of bruising on both arms... awful. abolish needles.

We have a show kind of like Cops over here where they go about the beat with traffic police in South Lincolnshire (Police Interceptors on Channel 5). They arrested some chav in Boston before cutting to some gobby moron in Spalding and I looked up and started laughing. When you see someone you know getting locked up on TV it's just comedy gold.

I don't even know what that is!

the electoral roll is like shaymin said a List of people eligbile to vote. you shoulda got a letter thru your door about Register To Vote or whatever? and they're all "arrghhh you gotta register to vote its important"

i mean voting is also important yes cos political apathy is the nation killer but its also needed for a credit rating and if you ever want to own a house one day. (mortgages are like credit cards: hard mode)

 its important to be on there if you want to build a credit rating cos they'll look to that to see if you Verifiably Exist as a person if you're not on the electoral roll the credit agencies will most likely go 'huh maybe they're trying to con us with a fake name' and possibly reject you.

Quote
It dings? what, like a bell or something? Sorry if I sound ignorant, I don't know what that means.

nah i mean "dings" as in "negatively hits". kind of like "denting". i talk in dumb flowery language cos im literally r****ded and can't use Normal Words well

idk how credit ratings go for DSS (i dunno if thats the right acronym) but basically your credit rating is your Good (or Bad) Standing with the lending agencies, like how well (or not) you repay your debts and whether its on time, etc. basically its your "if you borrow this money, how likely are you gonna be to pay it back and are we gonna be able to make a deece profit off you through the Interest?" which is the only thing the credit card companies care about.

(which is why having a credit card but never spending on it also negatively impacts your credit rating cos they're like "well we're not gonna make cash off you so why do we care?")

its complicated and i dont know the Details of it exactly but theres stuff that Improves your rating and Unimproves it, and applying for credit cards and being Rejected for them (it can happen even if you'd be Accepted normally) unimproves it. every time you apply for your credit card the company will consult the credit record (your 'how likely/how much profit?' thing) and them actually checking it leaves a record hich means if you're rejected for it that'll be seen on your rating and is a Warning to other places to perhaps err on the side of also rejecting them.


you will usually be accepted more easier for high APR cards (see below for APR explanation) or High Interest cards easily because most people are like "cool! a credit card!" and dont notice they'll have to pay horrific interest. i.e. they downplay "how likely are they able to pay it back" for turning up the "how much profit can we make" end of things.

conversely low interest credit cards are harder to get and you usually need a better "i took loans out and paid them back" record on your credit record. sites can do you a "soft check" where they test your eligibility for cards in a way that doesn't impact your credit rating, but thats for when you do stuff like credit card "tarting" as they call it (hopping between 0% APR introductory offers to keep your credit card debt from ever having interest, useful for if you want to keep your credit card bill from growing further) and you need to know who will and who wont.

its why if you apply for one and you're rejected you should give it a bit before applying for another, its like dealing with a dodgy ex and being too quick on the updraw makes you look desperate and lame to them.


given you're on DSS that might put you in that awkward category with Students lendingwise, i.e. not really a Strong Money Earning lot and not really doing stuff like working and making cash money, which means they may not be keen to give you credit cards


Quote
I'm in the UK. I don't know what APR is, I feel like I'm totally clueless about everything.

not at all, the banks make their money out of keeping people clueless about the process, wouldn't you know it.

APR is Annual Percentage Rate or really a kind of Financial-ese way of sayin "monthly interest".

basically with an APR of a card you got the amount you've spent on the card, and you take the percentage the APR is, divide that by twelve (to take it from Annual to Monthly) and each month that interest will be lumped onto your bill and you'll have to pay it. im gonna use colours here to keep track cos of brokebrain reasons

i.e. if you're £500 in debt on your card and your APR is 19% then

19% of £500 = £95

and then they will tack on £95 per year / 12 = £7.92. per month interest

you have to pay a "minimum amount" at least every month, which is based on the total amount you owe + the monthly interest.

so if you dont spend anything by the time your bill rolls around you will owe £500 + £7.92 = £507.92. and will need to pay whatever the minimum payment for an amount of £507.92 is. (you can usually find this by lookin at the small print of your credit card agreement)


im no expert in economics (altho id like to learn the basics one day) but basically Interest and APR is how the lending agencies make money, bankers would never do this out the goodness of their own hearts lmao

theres a lot more to read on my personal fave resource for Boring Money Information stuff, moneysavingexpert (http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/) if you're a big dumb hell idiot nerd like i am and do ur budget in monthly spreadsheets and like to be Informed on boring adult life details and thriftiness. its a site for people who got themselves into stupid amounts of debt and often the forums are a bunch of people trying to save where they can so they can claw themselves out of debt hell but yeh . another good place to ask re: legalese to money stuff is ur local Citizens Advice Bureau




basically if you're trying to get stuff that can only be gotten with credit cards like certain places on the internet do then your best bet is the Prepaid Credit Card option for now.

well thats my Effortpost about boring financial details, thanks for reading.

Phone contracts are a good way of building a credit rating as well. Even if you just get one that is like £10 a month or something. I didn't have a credit rating until I got my HTC on contract with EE a few years back, did have some blips initially but I paid it on time for the most part lol. Upgraded and now paying slightly more for an iPhone. Obv don't take out a contract if you don't actually need one because you do put in more than you get out. I've still not got a credit card yet though, couldn't trust myself with one tbh. I've made a vow to never end up like people in my close family who are just swimming in debt to various angry companies. (I'm not saying to avoid credit cards because of this, this is just me personally!)

I'm at the tense stage where I've woken up after drinking and not knowing how I'm going to be when I get up out of bed. I think I'm okay though, it's not like the hangovers I've had where it takes like half an hour to crawl from my room to the bathroom, so that's a plus!

I hope I'm not waiting around for hours and hours, hoping to get seen before 12 because otherwise I could have just been an afternoon patient. Can't have anything else to drink now either #rip

The problem every time is money. All of these conferences say they offer financial aid but it's usually like applying a band-aid to an amputee, almost pointless.

I don't mean easy to deal with lol i mean in terms of sympathy and attitude others give to you
Nobody treats me nice once I admit I'm schizo + bpd... They don't think I'm safe to be around. I'm immediately an axe murderer and a psycho ex waiting to happen. My symptoms are just me abusing people so I'm not worth a damn. Nobody's ever stopped talking to me out of fear when I told them I've got depression/anxiety too.
Don't get me wrong I still get treated like dirt for my anxiety/depression symptoms, but being called a lazy coward is better than being avoided completely or having cops called on you because of things you can't help lol

i think it all depends on how your symptoms display as well tbf like i'm supposedly just comorbid depression/anxiety with what we think is asd in the mix as well (there's a little bit of debate on whether i'm possibly mixed-state bipolar but idk my treatment's working pretty well now so as long as that continues to work i'm not fussed) but because my symptoms don't necessarily display as being obviously low or obviously anxious people are very ??? and then i'll have a meltdown where i'll basically lose all rationality and start screaming and crying etc and that's treated very differently to the general like... passiveness (not quite the word im looking for but what can u do) of 'typical' depression/anxiety symptoms

//runs in out of breath, takes blue inhaler// did i hear people talking about mental health and mixed bipolar states?

you heard it here second but the bleeding edge of Science Literature seems to be collating around the idea suggest there is an emerging "bipolar spectrum" affair (possibly with a third axis of Anxiety/Neurosis/Psychosis) (in BP-I aka the most severe u present with psychosis in ur manic states which dont help much in diagnostics not labelling u schizo and a lot of bp-II and bp-III people present with neuroses and anxiety)

much like the same way that recent autism classification returned to a Spectrum of sorts cos all the various microdeviations were just getting ridic. (think all the -core classifications of metal music, you know)


(the short version of how ASD came to be: so in DSM-V basically ASD absorbed both PDD-NOS and Aspergers and turned it into a Severity Scale thing cos a lot of people weren't really understanding when it was autism and when it was aspergers and when it was PDD-NOS and a lot of misclassification was going on and Appropriate Care was just ending up a bit of a mess cos oh did they start to talk as a toddler at this one age (aspergers) or this other age (autism), both within about a few months of each other and kind of uselessly specific. the ASD end of things is still having trouble being rolled out at a practise level cos of how slow this stuff is and dont even get me started on Latent Adult Autism support and the implications of the UK "parents raise the alarm" vs the US "everyone gets checked" allowin uk parents who want A Normal Kid to hide it esp since Early Intervention is crucial


 but yeh expect the same thing to happen to Phasic Depression/Hyperactivity type stuff in the years to come. mental health is a weird thing. schzioid stuff is even more complicated, ur gently trying to nudge the dopamine neurotransmitter environment between "too much" (psychosis) and "too little" (movement disorders) and like most neurology its Complicated. [A]sk me about going minorly psychotic on prozac due to its dopaminergic effects (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11919662)
 

i mean the science is still developing on it, anyone who's even been within a yard of Academia knows how this stuff goes. slowly. but there are literal environmental/genetic/biological factors at work behind depression/mood swings etc. (SERT allele length, cortisol response, BDNF stuff, CYP2D6 metabolism speed, biological circadian rhythms) so next time anyone tells u its in ur head and its all fakey cake stuff just fart at them.

for instance it is imperative to find proper anti-anxiety or reduce Stress cos chronic high levels of cortisol (stress hormone, anxiety people will know what this is along with epinephrine) shuts off a chemical ur body produces (BDNF) that allows for neuron connection/maintenance. some meds help (there is a literal gene which appears to inadvertantly code for lithium response) but annoyingly one thing that actually starts the BDNF back up again is...........exercise! one bipolar-I woman had literal no luck with any meds and the only thing that is keeping her in remission is gettin those glutes moving regularly, wouldn't u know it.
 

tl;dr: if u feel like u have way too rapid cycling/mixed states to be even bipolar-II (bp-II literal diagnostic criteria = hypomania of longer than 4 days solid) then ur not going mad, science just aint caught up yet and the pharma companies aren't keen to fund it cos stabilser/AED Meds aren't always the best thing for it.

anyway thanks for letting me carepost about mental health/learnin disabilites i hope people liked it. if u didn't then im also sorry. thanks bye

 Like, nobody in EastEnders seems to have a normal day. You wake up, fight a tramp who's trying to burn down your house, go to dinner and find out that your mother is cheating on your father with a man with an octo-penis, and then you get blown up because the tramp's a zombie and blew up your house.

I asked my boss and he just laughed and said its something nice but I honestly can't think of anything??? I hope it's not more hours but I'm thinking it might be that I'm going back to the bakery there. I'd be so happy if it was but I'm not getting my hopes up. I want to know :(

ive dropped my ipod on the screen, in odd places, down stairs, into water, into a /bath/ of water, and it still works fine. (ipod touch, that is, from a few years ago). the only damage it ever got were scratches on the back that we can easily ignore. only in the last three months have i started to get some dead pixels, a hairline crack (from inside the screen) and the occasional glitch on the login screen which might just be my clumsy fingers. oh, and the battery's kind of bad now but thats because its old.

also ive just hit myself in the face with the bench while falling and now my nose is bleeding. too too clumsy.

This reminds me of the first time I ever used a razor. Obviously, I was in the shower and I wasn't really sure how you were meant to clean the hairs off it so I just gently wiped it on my thumb every time I needed to. Anyway, fast forward to me getting out of the shower and my thumb turning into a bloody mess in the space of about three seconds. It did not stop bleeding for so long.

All my flatmates are back in Cheltenham already and as much as I wanna stay at home, I feel really left out over here.

 DESTINY!?

 Man, that game was the balls until Bungie was like "nah fam, we're locking all this content that you've paid for unless you pay us another £45". The Phogoth raid was always a pain since you would have hunters trying to stab him in the shin but then they would get rekt and rage quit.


 One of my mates keeps ditching me to hang out with another mate who went behind his back and got with his ex after a few days of being apart. There's also a rapist as part of this group (he diddled a drunk girl who was sleeping next to him whilst sober), another technical rapist (slept with a 14 year old) and a bunch of girls who only use him to pad their egos. Not to mention the fact that the last guy used to stalk us through town when we used to hang out with his ex and he also let his friend throw a cinder block through the windscreen of a car belonging to one of the girls who was with us at the time.

 

 I just don't get it tbh. Maybe it's cognitive dissonance brought on by his insecurities since he can't "one-up" us with education since he's not in university. It's one of the only things I can think of atm since he acted weird when his "thick" friend got in and he started to resent her.

Xatu would've countered his hazards, glare, and roar and heal bell would've kept the team healthy (which is what I usually run on meloetta). The guy planned this and beat me 4-0.

BBT is the absolute worst. It's literally making a joke of an autistic guy, while they make the most mainstream pop culture and video game references, and then there's an over-the-top laughtrack to remind you "hey, that was supposed to be a joke!". Then everyone who enjoys it calls it nerd humor. IMO it's ok to joke about things that are controversial or just plain messed up, but when I watch that show I can't think of it in any other way but making fun of the mentally challenged while there's one token female character that hangs with them so they can have someone "normal" thrown in there to set up more situations where we can laugh at the nerdy characters.

 I just had my first 2:2 grade and now I feel dirtier. There wasn't anything wrong with the essay so I'm guessing it's just a lack of further reading and diversity. Would have loved some feedback other than "good" since now I don't know where I went wrong.
 
 Two marks away from a 2:1 - 58/100. Actually kinda gutted since that's like... a D grade. Completely blew my confidence for these exams out of the water.

 It's not even hard, like.

 I've got five days until my statistics exam but there isn't negative marking so I'm okay.
 Eight days until my Individual and Abnormal exam which is what I just got a D in so I'm a little concerned.
 Eleven days until my Cognition.

 Gutted fam, I started revising this week since we haven't done that much work but this is gutting.

thats the issue man. ppl see themselves in sheldon and considering hes the butt of every joke because hes autistic it makes people feel embarrassed to relate to him and embarrassed for being autistic. i see myself in him too especially when hes at his most "weird" and "annoying" and all of his friends' reactions to him remind me of how almost every friend ive had in life has reacted to me and its unpleasant knowing thats a funny joke to people and not like... something to be irritated or upset for sheldons sake by.

it might be a good show if it wasnt "make fun of an autistic guy for being autistic" but as it stands thats what it is and its wasted potential really.

I get pissed off by TBBT because I'm an aspiring theoretical physicist and I really hate it when people use Sheldon or something as a preconception for how they view me when I tell them what I do.

After reading a bit of that paragraph, if that's what you're describing, then I act like that too and get shut down for it.  I hate it when that happens to me and I imagine it would make me cringe harder when he's being weird or annoying or whatever.  But then again I haven't been formally diagnosed and I doubt I'll get anything out of a diagnosis.

 Ordered some stuff on Amazon to relax after all this revision. It was meant to come today but yesterday my training shoes were delivered to the wrong house. The inept delivery man thought it would be better to deliver it to the wrong house than deliver it after the quoted time.

 After walking to the house that my shoes were delivered to, they said they had opened it as they were expecting a delivery even though their name or postcode wasn't on the package.

 There's 30 minutes left until the delivery is officially not coming today and I crack on with close to three hours of revision. I'll probably cut into research methods and finish it off tomorrow.

using the words "fight on" didn't mean that I meant that you get over it by praying and believing that it will just go away eventually, it was more so in terms of his body not being able to literally fight on.

Everything is open to interpretation though I guess.

yeah im not sure i believe you. this is really bad backpedalling and the pseudointellectual milquetoast fencesitting comment on the end to try and appear pragmatic doesn't help either. just stop while you're ahead behind

^However, some cancer patients do flat out just give up the will to live and never even begin to fight.

close, but "fight" in this context signifies that anyone apart from the graces of medical science "fights" against it as if there is "winners" and "losers". cancer either kills you or it goes into remission and you quietly fear it coming back for the rest of your life, such is the nature of the thing.



the point is its a bit of a Social Faux Pas to make with oncology people to go on about it being a "fight" and its like saying "i'll pray for you", its kind of a cringey rookie mistake

I understood what Kerou was saying and didn't read into it as a 'You can win if you just believe' thing. I don't think anyone (apart from maybe religious nuts) uses the phrase to actually mean fighting against cancerous cells, but rather the fight to regain some semblance of a normal, functional life after being diagnosed with a terminal illness.

It's like when something terrible happens in your life and you eventually have to say "Oh well, onwards and upwards". Not because there's any indication or belief that things are actually going to get better, but because you need some kind of psychological momentum to get control over whatever it is that has brought you down in the first place or else you'll stagnate and spiral downwards further.

not only that but i was hanging with my friend earlier and i had left my phone in his car and i tried to follow him home and get his attention and i finally found him stuck on a hill so i flash my high beams and i'm waving out the window and yelling and he backs up and i think he must have noticed my phone is in his car right? no he just gives his car a running start and makes it up the hill. by the time I can force my volvo up the hill i've lost him. then i got lost in a part of new hampshire i do not know, and NH is like a gigantic forest with tiny roads. and now i need to drive 30 minutes back that way to get my phone

And furthermore, you don't wanna go out a loser that lost a fight with cancer.

this is what im getting at p much exactly. fight is such an awkward and Loaded way of putting it and if you point this out to people they go "uh....no no i wasn't saying THAT i was saying, like, uh, fight as in...." and its still missing the point entirely and the gravity of the entire situation.

Quote
Also, I don't see how people can really survive cancer on sheer force of will.  It's really odd that this whole idea became a colloquialism.

its mostly due to undiagnosed or willfully ignored mental illness, or some other delusional beliefs. "if i think hard enough about a thing or dont think about it at all, things will magically fix themselves. yes, this is a responsible way to live and i will do this and continue to do this and ignore the signs that this isn't working at all". its a really terrible and maladaptive coping mechanism

example, a dude tried to kill himself twice on our couch by going into hyperglycemia by just Not Thinking About It (plot twist: he's doing a lot better both physically and mentally rn tho)

 Sorry to hear, Poison2007. Cancer is an awful thing to pass away from.


 The next exam is tomorrow (Friday) and my alarm clock's date is incorrect so I almost had a seizure when I saw that my exam was allegedly this morning as I haven't finished revising.

 It feels a little like a blessing and an eye-opener knowing that I have another day to revise.

So there's a massive Make-A-Wish fundraising event in London that could really help towards my total, but it's over my Birthday.

I don't know whether to go and capitalise on that, or whether I should stay and spend my Birthday with my flatmates (who I love very much) & would be the preferred option.

My mum did a little research on my symptoms and she has discovered that there is such a thing as "Epileptic Vertigo". From one kind of epilepsy to another, I feel like I'm always going to have something wrong with me!

Flat hunting is proving annoying so far, going to share with a guy in my class and possibly one of his friends but he's not 100% sure yet. He's really picky like it has to be in walking distance of uni, so he doesn't have to get a bus, so it limits us to the more expensive areas lol. Obviously I don't want to live in a dump but I'm from a scheme so I can handle some crappiness I guess lmao.
Only criteria I have that it needs to be on a bus route for work but other than that as long as it's furnished etc I'm not too bothered! I'm hoping no more than £500 a month for rent, otherwise I'll be living beyond my means next year :(

 Why can't you just do a "girly" voice and edit the pitch using Audacity or whatever sound software is free instead of hassling Poison when they've already stated that they're busy and potentially in a rough place atm?

 This is coming from a male who has had to do a voice over for a female in order to pass a class in media because one of our group members decided "o i dun wan to do voices tho i volunteered to join ur groop and voice the wuman".

 You can download Audacity for free and presuming that you're younger, your voice will be a little higher so it'll be easier to raise the pitch and stuff.

 It's really easy fam, and it might save you a bunch of time in the future.

until i get jobbed up (few months time w/ luck) i aint got the cash to get all creatine/protein'd up just yet, hence the bootleg approach. its workin for me for the most part cos i aint plateau'd yet, im having to take it dead slow cos of my dumb slippery joints and how it takes long n slow to get the ligaments/tendons up to speed with the muscles.


also deadlifts 4 lyfe, its one of my few workout mainstays until i get a roman bench and can do hyperextensions. p much Insurance against the "i didn't work out ever and now i have the spinal erectors of a literal baby" back pains later in life and god it feels great to be able to sit in this crap dumpster-dived office chair w ease. that and bent over rows. and squats. all wonderful things that make u feel POWERFUL

i end up crippled by metabolic stress for a good couple days unless i get a deece protein peak meal/shake in p much immediately after training so im not entirely sure why ur telling us this. not needing anything after a workout and being OK after usually means you didn't work out hard enough. several small reps of an easy weight to "tone up" is basically pointless. it needs to be a case of "losing form after 5-6 reps" weight, depending on whether you're doing Starting Strength (http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/starting-strength-review-of-mark-rippetoes-barbell-bible.html) or Brain Over Brawn (http://brainoverbrawn.com/) or whatever.

after a Good Workout or any kind of HIIT ur meant to have a Peak Meal (hi carbs, hi sugar) straight after otherwise the DOMS gets you bad and u end up going into starvation mode (the aforementioned metabolic stress) cos ur body just blew a big load of ATP/glucose on your workout and you're not replacing it quick enough. also you need the protein so ur body repairs the microtears in the muscles from the workout adequately. its p much the only time u can Legally have a big fat cheeseburger w/ milkshake for your diet cos it ticks all the boxes (carbs, protein, sugary milk, etc. etc.) and its one of the biggest perks of Lifting imo.

tl;dr: if you get grouchy + pain + bad weird Withdrawals feeling mysteriously for a couple days after a workout then ur not replenishing post-workout well enough. if you're fine post-workout then you need to workout harder.



well thats my weightlifting info carepost about adequate post-workout replenishment hope everyone liked it, thx 4 readin

I just shut down my virtual machine.

"Installing update 1 of 206"

What the hell?

This isn't even the half of it. I left it to install the updates overnight and I got stuck with this (http://oi66.tinypic.com/34eysqp.jpg) message for a couple of minutes after trying to start up my virtual machine today.

I'm currently trying to install the updates manually. Considering there are 206 updates to install, I know this is going to take a while.

 If you need a good high protein meal whilst trying to lose weight you could mix half a pot of cottage cheese with half a tin of tuna and put some greens in there. Fairly certain you'll be exceeding the daily dose of Vitamin C but it's like... very low calories and an okay amount of protein. It's probably closer to 300 calories tbh so double up and get that 1800kcal with that saucy deficit going.

 If you're saving up for protein I would recommend MyProtein as it's pretty cheap and I could even see if they've emailed me a discount code if you're in a tight spot since I haven't been lifting since... like... September and I had a tub for Christmas so I'm well-stocked.

 Generally avoid those BooTeatox things since I'm pretty sure they just give you savage poos and they act a little like laxatives.

ah jeez thatd be perfect except cottage cheese is literally one of the rare foodstuffs (along w liver and also trifle sponges) that i literally cannot even tolerate the idea of, sadly. its just some weird bizarre alien crud hellstuff to me and ive tried to Grow Up and try it again in adult life but i still can't do it. people even eat it with fruit what the hell is goin on with that? i mean  there's also drinking skimmed milk for protein but ughhhhhhh i can't stand the stuff. its just water with white paint mixed in. blue top whole milk only or bust.

luckily all i care about are Muscle Gainz and i dont care dietwise if i end up with a big fat gut as long as i can punch people hard in the nads with my massive muscles. but thank u for ur cottage cheese dieting one weird tip, i will keep it in mind for others who are in need of it and will accredit u accordingly. (http://i.imgur.com/CUuWmjU.png) 

however on the note of weird alien foodstuffs regarding bizarre forms of milk i DO have another bodybuilder fave at my disposal for the time being (kefir, been takin care of a milk kefir grain for a good 4+ years now) so hopefully that will do regardin Easy Protein and my nerd spaz muscles until i get Jobbed Up and start raking in the moolah.

im on my meds now. lil worried about fluoxetine 'cause i'm not used to meds and i had a reaction recently so i hope im not allergic to anything else

as someone whos been on that v same med pharmacologically speaking YMMV.... (beth takes out her diorama on CYP2D6 metabolism speeds and serotonin transporter allele length discrepancies "PUT IT BACK BETH WE DONT CARE" puk yells. "ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh not fair" i whine as i begrudingly shove it back in my tatty nerd backpack)


...but its good if u need a kick up the butt pharmacologically (its "activating" as they say. it turns out i didn't need an activating drug) so see how you go on it. expect ur appetite to go down and if you've been doing a lot of laying around being sad expect a Coffee Buzz feeling and to be a bit more Up and With It, if thats the effect you're after. its quite a good med for most people?? but as with all meds if it aint The One, it just means ur one med closer to the med that actually works. good luck tho and keep fightin the good fight. (http://i.imgur.com/CUuWmjU.png)

a plus about it is that it has a stupidly long half life (its metabolite, norfluoxetine has a half life of like, almost a fortnight) so you can forget a dose for one day and still be in theraputic levels more or less. its why its prescribed also to forgetfuls and teenagers so if they miss a dose then they dont end up in Trouble. some people can stop taking it p much cold turkey and it tapers itself off? not reccommended obvs but good to know. and its used as a crossfade kinda thing for people having trouble coming off other SSRIs which is nice

also, and this goes for any other depressed nerds, try to avoid paxil/paroxetine/seroxat if you can cos that one aint the kindest of ssris.


ok IM SHUTTING UP NOW soz i just love talking about mental health stuff

 I keep meaning to pop down to the gym to renew my membership and to have a haircut whilst in town but I'll fall asleep at around 4am, wake up at 9am, then fall asleep again until like 3pm and by then the entire day is wasted because I'm groggy until about 4pm.

 Then with the gym, I'm torn between going to my first/current (hey-o) gym or a new one because I'm guessing loads of students have migrated to mine as the student discount has decreased from about 25% to 20%.

 This new gym is a traditional strength gym but I'm not sure if it's 90% machines and 10% free weights and that's off-putting since free weights are dank af. It's also next to a pub so all the drunks will be loitering during later gym sessions.

 It has been irking me since before December which is silly because it's just a gym but there's a line between the two that's dividing them into a casual and a "pro" category and when you actually want to make progress it's something that's important.

 Not to mention that my previous gym is packed now that the woman's only gym has closed and moved somewhere else. I'm totally supportive of ladies making them gainzz but when the gym is about the size of a classroom there's just not enough room and not enough machines for another gym's people to join us... especially when the gym has only moved down the road to a larger building.

Please never take Paxil if you can help it! Oh god...
I've been taking Zoloft by itself for over a year now, and it treated my depression singularly while doing nothing for my anxiety. I needed to add Buspar for everything to work properly. I highly recommend it - I feel clear, present, and euphoric now. My mental health hasn't been this good since I was 8.

It's a thrice daily medication with a half life of 8 hours. The efficacy is 6 hours in my body. I can feel it at work and leave my system so I take it as needed.

I'm pretty activated lately though. I'm having a bit of an issue with insomnia. I feel too good and without much of a need for a break.

 Surely there are more important issues and topics that could be covered? Like... shows about trans-people would be more relevant tbh.

i hope muscle weighs more than fat cos for a laff i stepped on the scales for the first time in 2 years to check what my semi-sporadic lifting has got me and im 16.8 stone (107 kg in modern world weights) and i just checked fitocracy to update it and the old weight is





13.3 stone (85 kilos). uh ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh (fat emoji)

id be worried cept i luv being a fatty u can fit more pies and curry in ur fat gut when ur fat. when you're thin its all "ohhhhhh anyone got some zero-cal gluten free organic vinegar for my iceberg lettuce salad. all my hair is falling out." over the constant knocking of your own bones. also you burn weight quicker as a fatty when you exercise but slim jims have to do a pentathalon.

 I think muscle weighs more than fat as a friend is like 14 stone but mostly muscle now! Keep making them gains brah!

 It'll probably take like... three to four months to get down to 15 stone from 18. It's not bad, like, because of that whole #newyearnewme crap but whew, three months of suffering until I get back to normal.

 Fortunately cottage cheese and tuna doesn't taste that bad with some veggies and pepper and these cookbooks are an excuse to try other foods... although one of them is how to make cakes and stuff and I don't know what the author was thinking but generally fitness and dieting doesn't equal eating cakes 24/7 because they have protein :/

 Also one of my favourite lifters looks like this girl I was hella into lmao and now it's putting me off her and she doesn't have much of a following on Tumblr so I can't fitness spam.

 That feel when a band makes one great song but then all their other stuff is mediocre at best.

No idea about what I want to do next year like lbr the chances of me getting a job are at 0. Still thinking of maybe a pgde or a masters but I also really want to just take a year out to work and travel cause I'm getting close to burning out :)

^It's simple. Watch Trigun.

To start off, I went to do my hair for church. We bought some stuff to help my hair stay down. Needless to say, it didn't work, so we tried 2-3 other things and my hair finally started to cooperate.

Next, I went to make lunch for everyone and then I had to switch loads of laundry out. When I finally get back into the kitchen, everything's already been eaten/put up.

Finally, Pokemon Colosseum. It's a lot different from what i'm used to. I missed croconaw because umbreon decided to have a rare crit on a secret power that should've done ~22% so I could snag it. Umbreon had other ideas obviously. Then I had to google how to save and yyou have to go to a PC to save your game, which is stupid to say the least.

Still hating my job after like what 5 months of being down here
Part of me is like 'wait until the summer and just transfer to another store after the holidays' and the other part is like 'quit now!!!!'
my new store is just so disorganised and awful. I know I'm lucky to have a job etc etc but having been thrown on a completely new department it's not going well :) I'm so slow like I clock out usually another 15-20 mins after I'm supposed to. Being in a customer facing role isn't for me I don't think. Having to deal with people all the time is exhausting like you never get a chance to actually do stuff that needs doing! Least in the bakery customers only ever came to you if they wanted a loaf sliced but with the deli it's just constant.
I've got about a year and a bit's worth of supermarket retail experience in various departments, so like I'm considering defecting to Tesco or Asda but i get the feeling it'll just be the same crap but under a new company...
oh well least I'm off for a week thank god

Aaaaaaaaaaand work is totally stressing me out right now and I know I'm grateful to have a job and all that stuff but there's so much crap going on I'm wondering if it was really the right choice to change job roles last year.

 Uni starts at 11 tomorrow and there's a three-hour break.

 Also, we've apparently got new groups and nobody told us before the holidays... thanks you nobs. This could actually mean that I'll have to get up at anus o'clock if I'm in group 6 since it's a 9 o'clock start tomorrow.

 Lmao they're either horribly organised af or they expect you to know things that you haven't been told in uni. There were lecture notes for today, online, even though we didn't have lectures scheduled for today? No email mind. No emails regarding the new groups either.

 Could rant about this forever tbh. We're budding psychologists, not budding psychics.

i dont wanna sound all pseudointellectual philosiphy life coach or whatever here cos i hate that kind of thing myself more often than not but oh my god, literally run at full strength into failure. fail often and fail hard. learn to love failing whichever way u can. thats the only way ur going up.

check ur results, if they suck???? just try again but a bit better this time, somehow.





this goes for anyone with the failsads this february, aka the Last Stretch Of Horrid Winter before spring. idk i was heading for a heffalump and so i did some Weights and am now feeling Accomplished n Strong even tho i barely made my deadlift max this time but i got a good workout and the endorphins feel nice so ¯V(http://i.imgur.com/tszPQuX.gif)V¯

i mean i'll regret this in the next couple days but i bought me a nice back brace from lidls to go with my nerdlinger knee braces (also from lidls. get them while u can cos deece budget Support Braces are hard to come by without payin at least £10+ each per piece) should my back have a Tantrum tommorow cos i made it do a thing.




my ontopic post tho is idk if it counts as a first world problem??? its a Theatre Woe so its a bit bourgeoisie i guess. but i wish i'd gone and seen Beautiful Burnout (http://www.franticassembly.co.uk/productions/beautiful-burnout/) when it was touring theatres about 7 years ago instead of being too Scared about doing things. just listening to underworld and gettin Music Feels even tho i wasn't around for the whole rave scene etc. i guess.

 I couldn't actually find my results :dry: I'm guessing they're not up yet since I checked where they should be and where they could be pretty thoroughly.

 It's ingrained in me from sociology where I felt as if all my work was unfairly marked after my lecturer suddenly said "but Chris, I thought you were really misogynistic?" out of the blue when I said that I enjoyed studying feminism. All internal papers were marked lower and it killed my self-confidence as my external papers were marked C and above. It felt as if I was given the harder time for being the only straight guy on the course and that also meant that I had to sit through a lot of man-bashing.

 I don't know why she thought that since all my college friends were girls and I was quiet in class because I wanted to do well and concentrate. I was pretty offended lmao.

 Like, I resat all my first-year exams plus my maths GCSE so failure in general isn't scary, it's just the idea that this whole sociology crap will follow me through to psychology... and I don't want to have to pay to resit them again.



 You could try sumo deadlifts if you're having problems unless you're comfortable with the conventional deadlift tho. Is your back hurting because it's curving or an external thing because you really don't want to damage your lower back because it can hurt for months.

ohhhhhHHHHHH you mean Lesson Results not Weights Results. i forgot you posted about losin ur babyfat soz. i got the wrong idea and was going all Weights n Lifting Pep Talk haha. soz about that. freal tho on that note wth??????????????? at the teacher, if you dont mind me saying cos boy howdy would i have balked at hearing that and quit the class p much instantly on learning the class was being given by a bitter radfem.

just getting anyone to stay and stick with being receptive to Learning Feminism when its much easier to run away and get in the awkward corner of Internet Expert Opinions Haver/Retweet lord is a Good Thing in this day and age. and its a real shame when people wreck it by making dumb vindictive one-up Comments like that.

im probably being disproportionate idk but to literally say to your face "hmmery, my only male student. why are you telling me you, traitorous dickhaver, enjoyed my class? i thought u hated women!!! tee hee hee hee. this was an Epic Own that totally needed to be said to you" is like....??????????? if nothing else she was being derivative and cliché and also weird&bitter as hell

god im so mad @ this teacher i just had to eat a whole bowl of cereal to calm down. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. //rolls up my sleeves// tell me where she lives i'll introduce her to the riot grrl movement first hand as i beat her up while Teaches of Peaches plays in the bg

realtalk current feminism is at the 3rd wave i.e. "wow we uh forgot to check ourselves and all the feminist power got concentrated into rich white terf ladies. lets discuss n reform from that and try to include everyone this time" but not everyone caught the memo and its hard to roll this out academically to some of the more Conservative thinkers. combine this with the easy dopamine/adrenaline of Internet Notes/Internet Validation and you have p much a lot of Internet Drama regarding "those feminazis" and "the sjws" and "all dickhavers = scum" drama explained in a nutshell.

and also this goes for anyone wanting to study Gender Stuff, im being pre-emptive here but if you come up against the Feminist Crisis that a lot of blokes do in the age of the Feminist and want to get some legitimate Academic Bloke Politics on top of ur feminism w/o Accidentally/Shamefully Taking The Red Pill, look into a book called "Politics in Masculinities" (Messner, 1997) which is a good, if dated and slightly incomplete (no mention of transmen???) place to start to get a general gist of blokedom.

its a nice bonus to Feminist Theory cos then you see things from the other end of the looking glass and really understand how the whole dumb patriachy situation works in all its bizarre glory. and then the burning self-loathing of fedora men makes TOTAL SENSE. and suddenly dads being massive jerks make sense cos they thought it was Blokey to do so. and you realise how its just a Shame for all involved and how its so ludicrous that it still exists in this day and age and all the blokey types darent speak out against it bizarrely.




ANYWAY THO ths is getting really long so to save me more fervernt and passioned rambling the bottom line is that kind of stuff is a Shame to see in the year of our lord 2k16 for a whole bunch of reasons and is completely unacceptable imo. i wish i could hit her with a big q-tip gladiators style to make up for her outdated attitudes and im sorry it had to happen to you and i hope it doesn't put you off further persuits in the bizarre and hilariously/tragically ludicrous world of gender stuff.

also sorry everyone else for the feminist meltdown carepost. i just have a lot of Feelings about this kind of thing.

its a boring nerd story basically: so i did a weights but we have an ASDA delivery coming tommorow with quite a few bottles of beer in it (4 ales for £5 eyyyyyy current best deal outside of dragging them back from lidls) and i always love helping carrying the crates from the truck thru our gate into the house even tho they're meant to do that. cos i love to lift a heavy thing cos it feels good n nice and also its also Helping Out the people who have to do this crap all day non-stop and it makes their lives easier. so its win/win 4 me.

trouble is every time i do it anywhere near weights day (roughly twice) i have put my back out for a few days cos im too overeager or ive moved wrongly or the joints just want to hurt cos im foreverially a dumb spazmo baby. and im trying to Get Stronger to fend it off better but its a struggle i.e. my uni graduation photo where i am dual wielding wrist braces cos i will never escape Nerdlinger Hell agghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhHHHH

tl;dr: i will probably put my back out helping the asda delivery men tommorow cos im a big dumb idiot but if i do at least i got a brace to help this time unlike before where its just a lot of me going "omg im gonna die why am i such a stupid buttlord"

today i got home from a trip to venice that took 18 hours from start to finish and i get home and i'm like, "oh i need a shower" and shower then cook some food then my (almost slipped an expletive there) roommate that i am really growing to despise come in while im eating my eggs and is like, "YOU NEED TO DO A BETTER JOB CLEANING YOUR HAIR OUT OF THE SHOWER" and comes back with like 5 pieces of my hair and shoves them in my face and i'm like "um ok sorry" like if you wanna see all the hair i cleaned out of shower check the trash, it would blow your mind, i lose SO much hair in the shower its really hard for me to get it all out and i wish she just said "hey you know i noticed some hair in the shower and its gross so you should clean it lol" cause i would have got up and CLEANED IT NO PROBLEM

and then i do my dishes (which she never does :D) and then i'm like, "hey sorry if i sounded curt about the hair thing earlier haha i'm sorry its hard for me to get it all and im really sleep deprived at the moment" and she just looks up at me and goes "mhm" and back down to looking at her laptop

like holy moly petition to kick this girl out on the street. everyone that i live with tries so hard to be nice to her despite the fact she's perpetually awful. the girl who shares a bedroom with her had to split a closet and she mistakenly thought it would be a fair 50/50 and then this girl (her name is shay) ended up moving her clothes into her section of the closet to take up like 2/3rds of it. then had the nerve to ask for more space. then when the girl refused shay's like, "I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO COMPROMISE"

i seriously wish we could like... do something about her... but the housing arrangement is final. worst part is she NEVER leaves the apartment! she told me she pays thousands on top of her tuition to come to Italy and does nothing but skype her boyfriend and parents all day long in the apartment. i wish she stayed in the US more than anything especially since she likes to not shut up about how great new york city is, especially when i'm trying to concentrate on homework! unsurprisingly, the girl has no friends here so far

we even try to invite her out because we're like, "well maybe she doesnt like to go it alone" and she sits there looking super bored the whole time. like i have had some roommates i didn't really like but i'm contemplating going down to a church sometime soon and praying she just leaves lol

Playing my Nuzlocke on Ruby and letting my friend nickname my pokemon. Thanks to the nicknames he kept giving them I had to keep resetting and starting over. So far I have caught 5 pokemon, and lost 3 of them to critical hits (surprisingly not to Roxanne). Lastly, just as the silcoon I caught in the Petalberg Woods was about to evolve, said friend somehow wrestled it from me and pressed B, so I missed making it useful until level 12.

I feel your pain, one of my flatmates is like that!!

She left her dishes ~soaking~ for like 3 weeks in the basin like taking up half the sink and finally did them when we had a flat inspection. She's still not put her stuff away yet like I'm sure it's dry now???

She blares her music like most of the time, during the night it's even worse. I've started sleeping with headphones in just so I can actually sleep. I don't know if she's deaf or just likes people to hear her conversations but numerous times I've heard her angry Skype calls with her ldr boyfriend. The door slamming is the worst though like I'm sure she tries to wrench it off every time she opens it.

I don't even know what she's studying or if she even go to uni???? Like she's English so she's having to pay £9000 a year up here for her tuition so. I'm like 90% sure she's a daddy's girl/yah which is annoying lol

We should get them talking and then they can both move out together!

There's an American exchange girl in my class this semester and I think she's from Minnesota and studying in Massachusetts (or the other way around I can't remember lol). She was telling us about massholes and how great your state is Liz cause it's the only place you don't pay tax on purchases haha.

that's so awesome you're meeting someone from where i am! if you look up new england vs. minnesota accents you can figure out where she's from pretty quick, the difference in how we talk is crazy. and yay the NH love! Massholes are the worst, I can tell you a million stories about just how bad at driving they are! Although the drivers here in Italy are arguably worse! and yes the no sales tax is incredible, but its also what lures the massholes into our peaceful habitat... she must be a transfer though because its well known that massholes are totally oblivious to the fact they're massholes. i have several friends from that state and driving with them is like a death cage at times and they have no idea

I recently missed 3 weeks of class due to personal reasons, and my professor emailed me and basically told me to drop the class.
If I drop the class I won't be able to live on campus any more.
Basically, I hecked up.
I'm thinking of just not showing up to it, and accepting that I'll be on academic probation next semester. (Academic probation basically means if I fail another class, I'm kicked out of cool leg)

 Fallout 4 is really buggy and I can't start a new game because it freezes and I'm just stood there staring at my guy's wife's cryo-pod whenever I regain control of my dude. My main-save is glitched since The Railroad's PAM isn't allowing me to talk to her and finish this quest even though I really want that ballistic weave modification.

 It wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for the fact that I'm at the point where I can't progress with any of the other factions without initiating the "end game".

 Man, The Railroad had so much more potential. They're like the people that smuggled Jews out of Germany in WWII (well, that's the vibe I get) but they... they don't really do anything interesting throughout the game as far as I've seen.

 Thought Desdemona was really cool too but she does nothing but complain about how they can't risk being discovered.

 Really hope there's a DLC that expands on them. Maybe they could have a larger presence somewhere else where they train synths to become Railroad Heavies.

 This BBC3 show, man... "Is Britain Racist?".

 On the plus side, Wales, N.Ireland, and Scotland aren't part of Britain (apparently) so it's just a show where minorities are going into English working-class areas.

 Holy crap, this show is so bad. They've got people giving out doughnuts in order to see if people are racist... if you don't take one, you're a racist.

 It's like... anecdotal evidence everywhere and none of the statistics are cited because they don't support the goals of the show.

 Omfg it's so bad. It's so bad.

 This cognition test is so bad. These white people prefer white people, big surprise. These black people prefer black people, big surprise. How the heck is this racism?

 Please... can we shut down BBC3? I'm literally dying from poor statistics and paid actors.

shay the horrible roommate left her clothes on the clothes dryer for two days when it only takes a couple of hours to dry and my roommate moved her clothes onto the couch because she had wet clothes she needed to put up and shay came into our rooms while we were getting ready to sleep and proceeded to whine at my roommate when she admitted to doing it. she's like, "if you need me to do something, don't just touch my stuff, ask me first" liiiiike that's exactly how i felt about that hair in the shower situation just a couple days ago???

then this morning she woke me at 11 am to the sound of her singing loudly in the other room :)

she just left the apartment to go to class and wow it feels incredible to not hear her skyping or singing in the other room. she's killing me inside :)

edit: she told the girl in the room next door she's "never gotten along with a roommate" WHY DO YOU CONTINUE TO BE SO INTOLERABLE THEN???

 Torn between texting her something like "fancy doing something/going out (can't decide) on Valentines Day?" or "will you be my Valentine?". The second one is hella cliché but the first one doesn't seem to get to the point.

Did you end up pulling your back? It might be worth picking up a weightlifting belt for those kind of lifts.

funnily enough my back was fine?????? its my knees which were and are the trouble but theyve been funny for a while now. kinda dont behave right and only feel Right when im sitting on one of them/have them crossed which is prolly a bad sign anyway. i know preferring one side of your body to sit on is a bad sign cos of hip flexor stuff???

doctors were uninterested and vague when i went and asked so i just put the knee braces on when they're playing up and dont take them off till bed that night. im gonna be looking cool and nerdy for summer i think when its shorts weather i guess

tbh i think/hope mastering the actual weighted squat (could barely pull off a supported body weight squat to begin with) has Strongified my back up???? mighta just lifted with my back instead of my knees that day

also i got Distracted from ur earlier post but if the place u work in begins with S and ends with s my condolences, i managed just under 5 years before crashing out horridly and UGH the place is a complete Mess. boy howdy do i have so much greviences about how that place does its thing from the top to bottom.

try to flog a place on a First Aid course if they offer you one (saves u ~300 quid unless the only time its offered is when the two worst people in the store are going and ur like "screw it i'll just pay for one later in life" like me) and then hi-tail it outta there to Social Care or Schools Stuff (a lot of primary school staff on my first aid course. at least half of them) instead cos god do not stay there for longer then is neccessary.

I'm registered with a dr at home still but like I messed up my chances when they offered me therapy stuff so I'd be reluctant to go back for this kind of stuff again. I don't know if it's just the time of year but since I came back to uni after Christmas I've just felt pretty crap tbh. Been talking to friends in my class and I think if I can I'll speak to my lecturer today. I've got a reading week in two weeks time so I'm planning on going home and just unwinding.

See I thought they seemed nice to work for? Granted there was none were I lived until like 2011 so I've only really been in them since I moved here. I think supermarket retail in general is awful unless you work in waitrose lo. I work for the one of the ~big 4~ beginning with M ahaha. My old store was like a palace compared to this place, it's a lot bigger and I just hate it. I'd quit in in an instant but I need £££ really and even though it's hell 90% of the time it gets me out of the student bubble.
Didn't think of doing a first aid course it's probably be worthwhile I think. I don't even know when they offer them, they're pushing for everyone to get til trained, no thanks lmao. I'm planning on doing some volunteering when I get myself round to applying at a kids art centre. Ideally and hopefully I'm only going to be there until next August/September 17. Still wanting to go down the pgde route or maybe a masters. Thinking of transferring to another store when I come back after the summer 'yours is too far soz :(' surely all of the stores here can't be that bad??? Plus the fact I'm on a department I had no prior training in so I just got pushed off a cliff last September with everything happening all at once (moving away, uni, work).
this is my problem like I can see the future etc but just hate the present and know it's not going to change any time soon lol

 I had to butcher the post so I didn't flag up that plagiarism but knee supports are pretty ace! I've got one that I swap from knee to knee but they only really play up after squats or when it's cold. They're pretty fab in general.

 Psychology is really interesting so far but we only briefly touched on Freud and the majority of what we did was criticisms because of how his stuff was. One of his patients was afraid of dogs so he linked that to the patient walking in on his parents doing the deed doggy-style...

 It would totally be worth it to see if you could do A-Level psychology since I think that would involve Freud more but it'll depend on where it is :p

 There was a bit on eugenics and that was... like... really interesting since I had only read about the Nazis doing it but it was pretty popular in America at one point and they did some pretty nasty things to immigrants (from what I remember).

 The Bell Curve might be worth a read. Charles Murray was one of the authors but I only remember him from sociology since he's the guy for The New Right and they're like "lmao underclass scum" which is below the working class and all that stuff was pretty interesting.

I have a mock exam this Friday, about a week ago I was thinking "yeah I'll be okay, I'm feeling good and positive". This week? Basically I relapsed proper bad last Thursday and it's stayed awful since, bc depression and anxiety piled on top of exam stress and a huge lack of friends = personal nightmare. I'm referring myself to the college counsellor but even with that and support group, I feel like I'm bound to go even lower than this. It's overwhelming me far too much. I don't want to be all "blame mental health not me for flopping the exam" but it's made trying to revise so much harder than it should be. I could probably still get a D grade but I'd be better off without this crap going on.

Someone messaged me asking me what's up, I explain it all (expect for one really personal thing he shouldn't know about me), but he's all "yeah i know how you feel" and talks about how he's with a girl who dissociates--as I mentioned dissociation. Him knowing how I feel isn't...very useful. I mean, he's reassuring me that I'm not alone I guess but that's all I feel I can get out of him mentioning his knowledge of my feelings???? Well, not like you can know exactly how someone is feeling, which sorta makes me think saying "i know how you feel" seems kind of useless.

 I really want to get an aftershave for the spring and maaaaybe summer but I don't know what to get :( One of the Hugo Boss ones is on the list since it smells of, like, watermelon or something but ehh.

 It's weird but I've always picked things that remind me of things and holy fudgeballs, I've found one that has honey in the middle notes so it might smell like one of those Smelly Belly things that used to come in those eggs and you would sniff them and they would smell of things like lavender, vanilla, honeycomb and whatever (I remember mint?).

 I don't understand why people share pictures of abused animals on Facebook? Nine times out of ten, they don't even have animals living with them so they're posting a picture of a mutilated dog with something like "so sad *emoji* *emoji*" and it's like.... mate, there are people who have taken in their pets from a shelter and this stuff could really upset them. It can really upset anyone tbh. I have three dogs and I don't particularly want to see it.

 They don't even get likes for it so I don't understand what's the point? Do they get a tingle for animal abuse or something?

 My side has been hurting all day when I inhale and in the worst case scenarios, I'll have kidney stones or I would have knackered one of them but I probably slept awkwardly tbh - it kept me out of the gym and I'm irritated. If it persists I'll have to check the doctors but until now, I'm drinking  lot of water.

 Might tweak my diet for a few days.


 I'm talking to someone who was dicked around by her "ex" (idk what to call him, she hasn't really said) so I told her how annoying these guys are because they've killed another friend's self-esteem and confidence even though she's honestly stunning and the girl I'm talking to thought I was talking about her...

 It was a really heart-felt message too so she probably thinks I'm a mushy, fedora-wearing, m'lady saying, nice guy when I'm just sorta into someone else.

 Ayy I woke up and then slept until 2pm since my side was still hurting.

 Calling the doctors tomorrow and I'm dreading the thought that my kidney is actually damaged because of protein powder and/or creatine use because I thought that was one of those things that happens if you abuse the crap out of them.

 It's probably not that but I wanted to get it out there since that was one of my biggest fears since I was really reserved with any use of supplements.

 I have to miss a practical today in order to get an appointment with my GP because side pains is one of the symptoms of the big C being in your kidney and recently another member of my family was diagnosed so I don't want to take any risks.

  I honestly doubt that it's the big C and that it's something minor since the intensity of the pain has lowered by quite a bit and it's no longer constant but it seems to be more of an occasional sharp pain.

 Hopefully I can join another group to sit the practical.

 It appears that I was given this 9am slot out of spite for not applying for a group because the email was strikingly similar to the various spam emails that we are sent. I don't mind waking up at 6 but now that I've had to make a choice between my health and my education I'm quite annoyed tbh. Especially when major feedback, linked to my name, states that it's difficult to attend or get home from lectures at specific times due to trouble with transport and the fact that I do not live in the city.

 ALSO! We were sent an email to alert us to our personal tutor meetings on the 16th when mine was on the 15th!? Surely common sense says "the earliest meeting here is on the 15th, maybe you should send this on the 12th".

 So along with disruptive spam and incompetent organisers, the email system is okay-ish. Just kidding. I can't opt out of this either. They're going to spam me with stupidly timed mosque open day invites and obscure seminars on things like "feminist theories on snoods" until I finish university and then they'll probably move onto my personal email.

My great grampa isn't doing great, he had a mini stroke at the weekend but has just gone downhill quickly since. I'm so worried :( it's awful to say but at least when my great granny went it was much more sudden and unexpected. Doesn't help the fact I'm hundreds of miles away from home in case something happens.

just got the bad news on the phone. I'm coping okay but I know once I get home it'll be bad

speaking from endless rodent breeding, it's time to take mum away from the ratmen. maybe look into getting some cheap cages and splitting the young boys and girls off when they're ready?

if rats are anything like gerbils, girls can store sperm and have babies away from males it's slightly... annoying when you come down to discover 23424 more rodent children

I've split them up when Floki had the pups, but gestation is 23 days... we just didn't get it in time. Bjorn is awaiting his sons eagerly... We have 3 cages as it stands so we should be okay until we get Bjorn done.

It's cool though, we used to breed rats when I was younger, so I'm not 100% new to this :)

so yeah my personal recommendation: go anywhere else. maybe to rome where it can be 5:30 AM and a guy will start yelling disgusting things at you or you cant order in a mcdonalds because there's 3 different tables of guys shouting at you. before 6 am.

im glad to be back in florence where the guys still cat call you but they don't overdo it... but i can't wait to be back in america where i might get cat called a couple times a month.

i didn't make it to sorrento-- no time. i did go to vesuvius and pompeii though! pompeii was nothing like what i was expecting, i thought it was gonna be a lot smaller but it was huge! i made a lame joke to my roommate like "they must have been like, hey, lets build a village right by this beautiful mountain, what can go wrong?"

i loved mount vesuvius! im a mountain person though, me and my roommate both. we hike mountains because they're nature's version of a challenge, and they're there. they need to be climbed.

 Hopefully this post comes on page 101 because that's where the Sole Survivor comes from in Fallout 4 YEEEEEH BOIII!

 I asked a friend if she wanted to go thrifting since she seems like the type of person who would like to do that sort of thing and volunteering has taught me that there are a few hidden gems to be found in charity shops and I'm guessing military surplus shops but I'm not sure about the latter since it's surplus military gear.

 Anyway, she said no and that she didn't have money so I said that it's okay and not to worry and that we should do it when she can and that it's up to you. Pretty sure that she was hinting that she didn't want to do it at all so I say it's okay and leave it but I think that she thinks I took offence or something or maybe she is genuinely skint and I've just locked her out of my activity circle because she didn't have the money.
 
 I really hope it's not the latter since I'm skint 95% of the time and I've only got money right now because I don't like spending my grant because it doesn't feel like my money.

 Dunno. It's like... I'm not sure what happened. I feel bad about something and I don't know what it is.

I know what you mean about Pompeii, we didn't get to see it all because it is genuinely huge!

Vesuvius is incredible, when we went up our panoramic shots were all really rubbish because it was a misty day (in the middle of summer???) and we brought my grandad with us, too.

That was way back in 2012, but I've sort of caught the active/dormant volcano bug now because we climbed three in Tenerife the other year too. Probably something to do with my brother studying Volcanology and that lmao.

If you get the chance though you should totally go to Sorrento or Amalfi, they're really beautiful places to be :-)

But it's my favorite beer and we don't have it in america. i'm just like... super nervous. i don't know, it's kind of difficult for me because obviously english isn't his first language so sometimes i find him hard to understand and if the pub is too crowded it will only make it more difficult. and i'm like, what if we run out of things to talk about, all of that stuff... and then on top of that i don't even know why i'm going out with an italian guy i'm going to have to leave in a couple months!

oh wait i do its because he's too hot for me to say i'm not interested in spending time with him... but yeah i just don't want him to consume my life or anything or else it will be really really hard to leave florence? i mean its too late for that we talk almost every day :s

 The worst part about shaving your head is when you haven't gotten around to doing it so your hair needs to be dried but you forget and shampoo or whatever chemicals in your head stubble starts leaking down and burning your eyelids.

 Hooray for chemical burns!

 Also, I'm not sure if my practical report is due tomorrow or Thursday but it's literally just a matter of touching it up and adding averages since the written work was #verygood but the statistics were abysmal and I essentially wrote "I've messed up and this means that there can be no scientific statement made but there does appear to be a correlation between X and Y" at the end.

 Might start getting the graphs in 30 minutes since it sounds really simple and instead of comparing individual statistics I compared them all and got a value of like... 600.

 It's due in on Thursday and I'm only in until about 12 so I can have the whole day to make some sweet and passionate mathematical calculations. Whilst playing Barry White, of course.

I know this one person who likes to get in people's faces whenever she challenges somebody's argument, not in a mean aggressive way but in more of an excessive, theatrical way. I guess she's... playfully intimidating? Cheeky? Idk. Still I'm not used to this kind of behavior and feel threatened by it so I end up saying nasty things back at her. She thinks I'm mean afterwards and I feel so bad about myself because I'm nice to everyone else. But I know exactly what causes me to be that way. I want to explain this to her and ask her to stop invading my space like that but she's kind of the person who takes great pride in her uniqueness and accuses people of trying to tell her how to live her life. Anyway I usually can't stop myself around her and think before I act because when somebody gets in your face like that my instinctive response is to defend myself

No counterpoints from me, that was kind of rude coming from the worker. Also that's strange considering the fact that I went to the nearest Dairy Queen in December and saw a boy from school working there. He was even a grade under me

 I keep telling my friend that I want to lose weight because I'm fat/chubby (not going into gym talk, don't worry breh-drens) and I personally think I'm overweight so I'm working at losing the weight.

 Whenever I tell her she says that I'm not fat, that I'm tall, and that I'm fine and it's annoying because she would honestly be one of the prettiest things in the world no matter what weight she is but idk.

 I'm giddy-tired and I can't tell if I've finished my point or not because I'm too tired.

 Spent nine hours on a lab report mind. This douche-canoe that I've been paired with in lab class has made our questionnaire revolve around his personal interests and this will inevitably ruin our questionnaire because he made a massive fuss about me mentioning Netflix because he doesn't have it in his country (you're living here tho???) and then he went on to make the entire thing revolve around him.

 It's horrendously annoying because he made a fuss about him being from Hong Kong so my Western questions don't work so... unless the rest of our class is from Hong Kong, our questionnaire is going to fall flat on its face.

 His logic was "we can't use that question because it doesn't apply to me". He then goes on to ask everyone what time they workout. What does "workout" mean? Nobody apart from him knows because he didn't operationalise it. My only guess is that he meant weights because he mentioned another cardio-based question later on.

 Our questionnaire isn't even about the gym. The times at which an individual works out is not dictated by whether they are a morning or an evening person (which is what our questionnaire is meant to find out) because universities, jobs, and other responsibilities will dictate when you exercise. His questions are generally awful and the lecture made it obvious that my questions were preferred.

 He's not even a nice. He tried palming the work off to his friend and was saying crap like "C'mon you pussy, don't be a little b***h". What is this? Why would someone, who's a general dick, take psychology when it's likely that you'll have to work with the vulnerable at some point?

 Can't stand my group tbh. We've got Mr Broscience Projector, Mr Idunwanna Work, and Mr Bikeseat Sniffer.

 This is why you sit next to people you know, kids. If you sit on your own, you attract all the weird kids who don't have a backbone between them.

 That's not to mention the fact that we're doing a project that isn't even interesting or relevant to a student's general interests. They keep giving us these crappy projects to do and the complain about a lack of enthusiasm.

 If it was something interesting, like "does a person's favourite smells tell us they're personality type?" I'll be all over that like the Tories slagging off Corbyn, but no. We're conducting research that isn't very interesting tbh.

 Also, someone kept spouting "what about mental health???" when asked about contributing factors to sleeping patterns and it's like "fam, you've read Psych2Go on Tumblr. I get it.".


 Feels better to get that off my chest tbh.

blaze -- unfortunately, just with the way the stupid fast food industry works, they hire a lot of girls because i guess they're less intimidating to put out front or something. and the majority of what happens at a dairy queen happens in the front. it's dumb, when i worked at Panera they'd usually put all the pretty girls (and a few exceptionally attractive softly spoken men) on the register. most of the guys i worked with were either dishwashers, worked to clean the dining room, or were actually preparing the food. my brother is a manager at five guys and he says his boss insists that men work the grills, and girls work the register. once again, the most he could stretch was there was this one cute lil nugget boy who was exceptionally awful at the grill and instead of firing him his boss said, "oh he can do register". only boy my brother says he has EVER seen work a reg there, besides management if stuff hits the fan

you do not want to go into food service anyway. they pay you peanuts for the amount of work you do. people will whine about it a lot, but i would really suggest in my 4 years of working bottom rung jobs GO FOR RETAIL. have your mom show you how to fold clothes if you don't do it yourself and just apply for every clothing shop you can. if you have a mall nearby, a couple will usually try to get back to you. i'd suggest macy's, i did holiday work there and made $10 at the start, and at the end they bumped their lowest wage up to $11. all i did was fold clothes and put them away, and occasionally show some old ladies where to find a certain section. my friend worked at Best Buy and got $9 bumped to $10 to scan items at a register. meanwhile, panera bread, i'd work long stressful shifts on my feet doing 3 different people's jobs, i did this for 2 1/2 years, and i went from $7.25 to $7.86. management in fast food places are the absolute worst too. i've heard dairy queen is a poopheap too. consider this a blessing

yes and don't forget... if you decide to do a fast food joint, that's your own prerogative. but most likely you'll be slaving over a bunch of grease and if you didn't have acne your face will look like a pizza afterwards. if you have acne, it will look like you spent a night in the amazon for the entirety of your employment. i will reiterate: not worth it. if you need to take a job, make sandwiches at subway or something until you can score a better paying lower effort retail job. its generally pretty easy to get a job in fast food. there are reasons for this.

ALSO: PLEASE do not overwork yourself, this is another reason why i discourage my younger counterparts from working fast food. panera was a 3 or 4 pm to - 10 or 11 pm job on weeknights. this isn't just PB, this is most places you will work, they'll want you to put in 6 to 8 hours. when you need to catch a bus at 6:30 AM, you'll stop doing your homework so much and go to school sleep deprived because i remember at the three fast food jobs i worked my managers would try to make me feel obligated to work more than i could handle working. there was one point at PB i was doing ~30 hours a week while going to high school full time and my grades SUFFERED. i'm talking A and B student to getting my first D. at macy's they were like "yeah you're getting x hours becauuuse that's literally all the labor hours we have for you lol" for those couple of sleep deprived days you'll have... you'll just find out if you're a coffee or tea drinker.

you give me the impression of being exceptionally bright... i was pretty bright too but even i let a stupid job mess with my scholarships and college admissions. i probably seem like i'm being a parent to you but do not make the same mistakes i did, i'm only just working to recover from all that stress i put myself through now

So I haven't applied at like McDonald's and stuff. Plus i've set up my hours on the form so i'm only available until 9 PM max, and that's only on Saturdays. So I am at least trying to be careful.

Post by: Kpyna on February 25, 2016, 23:05
best of luck! just don't forget that they may guilt you into working more time than you initially signed up for, i said the same thing with panera. i actually said 9pm and for a couple weeks i'd get 9pm. then they said, "hey it would be such a great help if you just would learn how to close, its just til 10pm". then you learn and they say, "hey we're in a pinch, can you cover a closing shift?". then before you know it you're working closing shifts almost every day of the week and then you're working an audit night until 1am and you have school the next day...

i did have an exceptionally bad experience with panera i feel lol i think i only stayed because some kind of stockholm syndrome. but stick by what you said, don't cave into their unreasonable demands, they're not likely to fire you because you want to work the hours they hired you for. if anything they'll start cutting your hours and then that gives you some time to write that store in as experience on your resume and then skip to somewhere else. there's nothing wrong with working at a few different places so long as you leave with at least 1 manager that likes you. say your reason for leaving is "unprofessional management" and then at your next interview bring that up and stroke the hiring manager's ego and say "right away you strike me as way more professional than most of my past managers"... ive never used that line and not been offered the job. i also say i'm looking for a leader and not a boss and they eat that right up too yeeeee

anyways i dont want to scare you too much, you'll probably love your coworkers and i really love working, truthfully. i actually miss not working here. just make sure you're being treated like a human being like you deserve, sometimes the people in control will forget that, especially since they'll see you as a naive teenager. don't be afraid to stand up for yourself.

OH and biggest mistake i made at the start? at the end of your interview they'll ask "any questions?" don't say no. just ask some questions about the job like what most new people find difficult, what they like about working there, or any genuine questions you have. if you're feeling real cheeky you can ask "do you have any hesitations involving me working here?" i usually end with that and they say no typically. that's a little introductory sales tactic for you, assumed close, i used to make real money off of suckers with lines like that. also if you happen to be driving by stop in once a week and ask a cashier if you can speak to a manager, confidently introduce yourself to the manager and say you applied and ask that they look at the application at their nearest convenience. if you're doing food go in between 3 to 5, that's a quiet time and they'll pay attention to you. remember EVERYONE wants to be confident so acting like it will magnetize potential employers towards you.

ok last note in this novel i wrote for u if you post you got an interview i'll have more unsolicited advice for you since my major is marketing / sales and selling is exactly what you do in an interview so i can give you some pointers to killing an interview.

DOUBLE EDIT: hey so i just read 20% of Donald Trump's supporters would oppose the Emancipation Proclamation (like, that ended slavery in the US). hillary clinton loses to him in most matchups, and if the DNC doesnt sort out their corruption issues she may get the nomination over Bernie, AKA our only sensible choice. sooo basically what european members will let me stay in their home come next january if i get them a job and pay rent or something?

 This job thing for uni is open for applications tomorrow. Like, if they read applications then I've got it since I'm pretty enthusiastic about counselling and I love talking to people about their problems because it's just interesting to see how everyone feels when you're rather stunted when it comes down to emotions.

 Just the effort of doing it...

 Just told someone that they're out of my league without really thinking? I'm actually quite full of myself so it's a pretty good compliment since I'm mint and I'm implying that they're mintier than me.

Not a good day for friends. Another one of my friends in the same aforementioned league on PS!'s Gold Server can't make 2 of the matches, so he complains about it to me because he was sure he couldn't get them rescheduled. I try to help him but eventually connect him to the league leader, who confirms that he can't. So then my "friend" starts trashing the entire league in pm's, so I tell him to suck it up or just quit the league. After that, he turns around and attacks me, and then when I retort, he threatens to report me, saying i'm instigating the fight. Yeah, big talk for someone who just flamed a global auth (I would've done something but I wasn't infallible tbh).

Also caught a fwooofy cotton birb in my Ruby Nuzlocke and mistakenly got rid of peck for fury attack.

What internet do you use? If it's the hell that is keysurf then there is a way to get it to work, I bought Red on Saturday! basically you just have to add your 3ds MAC address to the list of devices (do it on your phone/laptop) and then just connect from your 3ds and it should work.

 Those "Fun Snaps" things that kids throw at the floor and create a loud "pap" sound.

 A group of 17/18 year old kids were throwing them at people's feet because they thought it was funny and when he did it to me I told him to F- off. Needless to say, he took offence and his plebeian, underclass friends were saying stuff like "smack him" and I noticed they were filming so I walked inside and they follow.

 "I'm filming this live mind, people are watching!". When I stopped and turned to him his phone apparently died and his group walked off. It was anti-climatic but it has really annoyed me.

 Tamping at the moment. Really annoyed.

 Why are there people like this? It's not funny and it's degenerate behaviour like this that characterises the underclass of society and nobody says anything so you get these people thinking that it's okay to do this.

There was a piece in the Guardian about a stag party kicked off a Ryanair flight that was forced to land in Berlin because they were absolutely blotto. The groom was one of them, but six of the party were allowed to continue on to Bratislava.

It's this whole thing of "I have to have several drinks before going on the plane" or "I have to get half cut before going out" or "It's not a football day without going to the pub." Why do you have to get blotto before doing these things? If you have to get drunk to get on a plane then that just tells me you need someone to hold your hand during takeoff and landing.

What's more, it's ALWAYS these 'lad' British twenty-somethings that are doing it.

 I'm annoyed because I can't say why I'm annoyed without potentially costing someone their job since I can't be the only one frustrated by this if it gets attention it could actually cause friction.


 Might have gotten myself a date by telling someone I have a grand to blow through. It was a joke since I told my friend how this lass was really money-orientated and lost interest in me because she thought I didn't have money.

 Like, I don't really like this lass because she's really up herself and says things that really rub me the wrong way tbh. I don't like rating people's looks because I'm a sucker for personality but she's not exactly the most attractive woman around but has the personality of Kim Kardashian.

 Don't get me wrong, I'm not the best looking guy and have a personality that's like paint stripper but at least I'm humble and kind-hearted.

 
 Comes off as a gold digger tbh and I'll probably bail.

 University is becoming like a sea marathon and I'm burning out but I can't stop because I'll just sink. There's one week left until a three-week Easter break.

 This gym-limbo is really stressful too.

 It doesn't help when people are asking why I'm so annoyed all the time when the amount of stress that I'm under is out of this world right now. I'm mentally exhausted 24/7.

 
 Also, an old friend has recently come back into my life and since she's like a sister to me everything's weird since I had gotten over the falling out and now it could happen again lol.

You should try getting into Birmingham when the German Market is in town and it's three times as bad for two months.

The problem is that the race course is next door to the Park n Ride so all the busses get held up and the makes congestion all the way through town (because of the horrific one way system and it all tails back around the uni, and my halls, and then the traffic lights near Tesco get absolutely packed - which they are 100% of the time anyway and that cuts of every entrance to Chelt. You have to remember that Brmingham is a city, so there's a lot more space for the cars to go, whereas Cheltenham's only a town. It's gonna be horrific.

Anyway lol I'm a massive baby and we went into Ann Summers today and I giggled the entire time 😛

Watching Black Sails in the hotel room... but it's a season ahead of us and in Italian. I am the only one it is spoiling it for. It makes me sad.

Birmingham City Centre is great- easy to get around and a great selection of shops, restaurants and concert venues. Will be even better when the tram line is finished and the Centenary Square work finished.

North Birmingham (Aston, Lozells, Birchfield, Perry Barr, Newtown) is horrible. I'll give you that.

 The hot water isn't working again so I'm tempted to just cash in my ticket, go to Hell and get some friggin warm water for once without having to play this crappy game of "check the water every few minutes".

 It might be lava but at least it'll be warm for once.

 I could bring your therapist if you want, P? They can explain why they're being a little frig and wussing out of their job. They'll be in Hell tho. You'll need a ouija board.

I was in the lift bringing a trolley of laptops down, but there was people outside waiting to go in the lift, one of them, just to take the piss, kept putting her foot in the door as it closed. She did it twice. Once I shouted at her "Do you mind?!" She stopped. Then the other guy put his foot in the door, he got his shoe caught in the door. The lift door wouldn't close properly and was trying to go down. Despite pressing the "open the doors" button, it wouldn't open. I panicked. After a few moments, the lift started to go down and I got out. I said "Thank f(three letters) for that!"

Let that be a lesson to you idiots! 8)
