    If you're a Buffalo Bills fan, on the other hand, you only act like the world is going to end when they win. We've learned to keep our expectations low over the years.

    Aren't your Bills against my Vikings today?
     
  3. The bills just stomped the fighting Scandinavians of Minnesota.

    Can I be not surprised by that? Because I'm not.
     
  5. Well, i'm not saying it, at least. Or thinking it. lol

    Still, I think Whovians win out. Some of them still haven't gotten over Christopher Eccleston...
    And now a w.o.m.a.n. [I have to spell it out in case it frightens them...]
     
  9. I don't like the new stuff, but I just...avoid it. It's not like the books got changed. I can ignore the Cursed Child and all that.

    Contemplating a new post in Writing Discussions called "Don't Be Squeamish! An approach to creating dynamics."

    Still sorting ideas. I've had the problem of not committing, pussyfooting, even vagueness, tentative steps in the past; but now I'm thinking the better approach is simply to go for the jugular every time, chapter by chapter by chapter—if not scene by scene by scene!

    Is this in reference to hp? I did not know they had new stuff. I was never really a fan of hp.
     
  13. Yesterday i got the results of my evaluation back and talked abt it with my therapist and i am diagnosed with ADHD and according to my therapist it is, beyond a shadow of a doubt, an explanation for...a lot of my entire life.

    It's not like it was a surprise or anything. "I can space out for ten minutes straight in the middle of writing down a simple math problem, have to stop and do push-ups and jumping jacks in the middle of completing assignments to avoid exploding, and need half an hour of cooldown after half an hour of sitting at a desk working or else staying on task starts to feel like a hot iron is being held to my entire existence? What could this meean????" but like. it's nice that there is a reason i struggle with school and everything despite supposedly being super-gifted. Besides just laziness or Being An Awful Parody Of A Person. My therapist wants me to at least have the conversation with my doctor about meds.

    On the one hand, I don't know how i would feel about meds. On the other hand, it would be nice to be able to actually function in day to day life.

    I hear you. I've had a few friends explain their reluctance to meds. I think it's definitely something worth talking over with someone who knows about it though. :)
     
  15. Yeah. My reluctance is mainly due to the fact that i already take two other medications and refilling them on time is hard already :/ It's a lot to keep track of. But i have to face it that i'm going to college soon and I doubt college work will be manageable for me.

    College is all about having good study habits, attending class regularly, communicating with your professors if you're falling behind or struggling (or will be absent more than one class), sitting in a part of the classroom where you will be less distracted like the front if possible, and using whatever resources are available to you as a student to help you succeed. This means counselors, extra time in tests if you need it, tutors, etc. Just these basic things will foster in you the ability to manage your studies. Also, remember to have fun and treat yourself once in a while. :) What makes college hard is the course load + homework, which is doable if you have the right habits in place.

    (Sorry for sounding like a mom but college is more manageable than a lot of people realize. You don't need to be brilliant in order to succeed)

  17. There are few things more frightening than watching your one year old strip her diaper off and run away stark naked and be unable to do anything about it.

    Sometimes I can be cruel. Like tonight. But if people would just read signs they'd be a lot better off.
     
  19. Word of advice, don't take claritin in the middle of the day after staying up coughing all night from a particularly heinous bout of allergies unless either 1) make sure they are non-drowsy or 2) are prepared for a 5 hour nap.
