I haven’t really been here either since my recruitment 2 years and a few months ago. Many details have gone away from my mind, yet one can not easily forget about this place.
Hmm… The transition itself wasn’t quite overwhelming. In fact, I feel as though I could still say I’m myself, the world has not brought about so many fundamental changes. I’m probably a bit less tolerant / patient, yet I’ve finally gained some work ethics. I sense constant environmental pressure to take it to the next level, i.e “full adulthood” with cars and jobs and money and socializing, but they just kinda bounce off naturally beyond the necessary extent. The army’s helped that since beyond bootcamp, I was only demanded obedience and knowledge; basically an extension of school, and much simpler.
Perhaps some day, I shall have an opportunity to go back. Perhaps we would meet again then.
But… I have a hunch things won’t go down the same path. I’ve seen so much, realized too much… Impossible to go about it with a clear mind.
At least for now, some traces remain. Thus, even as we head back to nothingness, I will retain just enough bravery to pull through.
Isn’t that all I’ve ever really asked for? So I guess I should be thanking you again.
hey carol you helped me a lot last time with your post and i know you don’t know me but i just respect you and really need someone’s advice and if your busy i understand you don’t know me from a hole in the wall i don’t expect anything just hoping but if you could that would be great - thanks
oh I think I get you now. you mean not expecting something from the person I try to help? like giving cos you want to, not cos you want something back in return or feel like you have to. yeah, giving cos you want to is best :)
Yes, I need to be careful what I say publicly. Maybe it was good what I said but, I would rather the two replies be deleted than be public. I did need to vent, but in my experience, some of the slightest things said can have negative consequences or be taken out of context to mean other things. I’d just rather they were deleted thank you, I appreciate it.
I asked her not to contact me which I am sure she would have listened to, I just wanted to make it formal because of the past events under that persons belt.
I will also not contact her and seeing as she seems to believe I am “slagging” her off (although I am talking about what she HAS done) I will also stop talking about her to save any grief or explosions.
Second paragraph: I understand what you’re saying, but I’ve tried that on a few occasions, and they just tell me to give them the answer, not repeat their questions (”that’s what I’m asking you”). Motivational advice… whether it’s lack of experience or talent, it just seems like I’m unable to pull it off currently.
It’s alright. Nonsense is fun to be distracted by when you’re bored.
I’m fine. We’re meeting the professor tomorrow, a reunion so to speak.
Heh, that was just a guess. Your advice seems to often consist of encouraging the OP to reach their own conclusions.
So I wondered, maybe this is because you don’t want to make any assumptions about them?
The reasoning, or where I want to go with it, is because I feel like the further I go with this course, the further away I go from my old methods of advising - I’m growing a distaste for assumptions regarding human beings, surprisingly and apparently. I kinda fear that by the time it completes, I would not be able to advise anyone anymore, effectively ending my usefulness/unusefulness here. I’m seeking an alternative advising method, so naturally yours came to mind.
Well It says once one IP is banned ALL unban and I know after a certain time they all unban but you can’t re ban the same unbanned IP I wasn’t sure if that was normal or not. The admin Schenegal has been around lately but never says anything or reply, he brought back avatars i just figured it was his doing, another words no haven’t contacted CBS.
As for my post I’m pretty sure i didn’t mean to report things saying “I want u naked” lol
As you might of guessed already all the previously banned IPs are unbanned and some of our famous trolls have found they’re way back. Do you know why we can’t Ip ban them again?
those that push the red flag are coward and should be ashamed of themselves ….. unless ur sending a mod a love note like i used to do to mas to mess with her……mas- love me tender love me sweet never let me go…..those kinds are fine to put in the red boxes :)
are u daft i dont wanna see you naked it’s my way of reporting something….LOOK at my profile on my highlighted posts…..This is the second time i’ve told u….also the “are you new” was a joke i know you’ve been here like 3 years or so
