2010-12-01 02:08:33 on Do you think messages have more impact when they’re short and sweet or long and elaborate?
In general? Short and sweet.
The exceptions are if the audience cares. The longer you speak/write/etc, the more care you put into it, and the more care someone else has to have to reading/listening to understand. Most people don’t care, hence my first point. A long love letter to your girlfriend would show you care about her, just as an example, and she would show she cares about what you have to say by reading it in return.

Because you don’t want to have to spend the next, what, five hours preparing whatever it is you’ve been working on.
Man, just do it. I’m in the same boat - I shouldn’t even be on - and we should both just do it. I’m going to take my own advice pronto and get offline. You should too. At least someone else is in your boat (got an essay to do).
2010-11-30 12:28:52 on Is there anything more I can do for her?
I understand. It’s hard to see people you love make really terrible decisions.
2010-11-29 18:28:28 on …………………&
She’s probably just mad at you, because you said you didn’t like her anymore and because your friends gossiped it hurt her. Be careful what you say to people, even your friends. Now she’s holding a grudge against you because she got hurt that her friend suddenly found her annoying and didn’t like her anymore.
Have you ever tried saying you’re sorry for those comments, even though you never meant for her to hear them?
2010-11-29 03:30:09 on I am really worried……….
I’m not really sure what it is you are describing, but I doubt you’re allergic to /snow/. I think you should go and see a doctor, though, because it sounds a little like you have a respiratory (lungs) cold of some kind.

Oh? What genre are those books?
I call myself a nerd for reading Tolkien more because of the genre he revolutionized than for the actual act of reading books. :) Also because I prefer his more esoteric poetry to his novels.

Tolkien, sadly. Nerd at heart. What does/did she write?

Have a favorite author?

And I want a million dollars and a pony. Sorry.
Okay, for the things I know:
BP: Pretty much normal. A little low, but totally in the normal range.
Pulse: A little elevated (like if you were walking a little quickly) but nothing out of the ordinary.
Body Temp: Got some mild hypothermia here, might have been medically induced.
The other two I’m not positive on, I don’t remember the norms. Otherwise, you weren’t in that bad shape for the first three.
2010-11-24 00:31:05 on How hard do you think this college schedule would be?
DO NOT TAKE A PART-TIME JOB ON THAT SCHEDULE. To me, if you were taking that at my Uni, you’ll be swamped with work anyway and will need all the downtime you can get just to keep yourself from getting too stressed. If you want to work a part time job really bad, drop one of those classes.
College isn’t like high school. Just remember that. Also a good rule of thumb - for every hour you spend in class you’ll have 1-3 hours of homework that night, depending on the lenience of your teacher and your ability to study.
2010-07-19 19:26:02 on What is the meaning of this quote?
To dream is to be unable to achieve at the current time. To dream of revenge is to long for it without being able to get it. Because of some quality of life, revenge is something desired, but not necessarily fulfilled. I must assume that the quality referred to is the various injustices that any one human may be inconvenienced with that dissatisfies them to the point of desiring revenge.
2010-05-13 23:21:54 on She can be so **** frustrating!
Thank you. I just, I dunno, it frustrates me too that, well.
She has been diagnosed with GAD (generalized anxiety disorder) as well as panic disorder and chronic depression. These are things she’s dealt with long before I came along, but … it sometimes is very hard to deal with being a caretaker without having anyone to really vent my frustrations. I often feel like I’m wrong to say that I’m frustrated at all with her, and that that’s too selfish to even think about - but that doesn’t make the frustrations go away…
It’s just difficult to always have to be the stable, in control, competent one. I have to be very careful about what I say, and it’s hard for me to be able to get comfort and reassurance for certain issues because by asking her for it she feels like she’s not providing enough for me already and gets all guilty. I don’t want that to happen, but not being reassured about certain things just eats me up inside…
2010-05-13 23:11:45 on She can be so **** frustrating!
I’m not — augh. I only wanted to vent out my frustrations here. It’s not like I feel like this all the time, just right now. I’m sorry if anything I said in here was misleading, but I thought I made it pretty clear that I was just venting because I was frustrated, not because I was fed up or terminally unhappy.
2010-05-13 22:48:47 on She can be so **** frustrating!
The problem is, we won’t have any life at all if not for me working. Period. She doesn’t work. I don’t make much. She’s going to have to suck up and deal if she wants to eat. And okay, I’m sorry, but holy crap, I want to spend time with her too. She lazes around at home all day (lonely, I know she is) while I work my *** off and this is the thanks I get? She practically wants me to quit, but uh, newsflash - I don’t think homeless is a good situation to be in, personally, no matter how much you like someone.
Relationships are about love and maturity, I thought.
Regarding that, well, yeah. *sigh* She’s trigger sensitive to just about anything hurtful, and I can be very crass. I’m doing my best to change my ways and habits for her. But I vent here because I get not a speck of understanding or sympathy from her when she’s like this! Actually I rarely get it anyway, and have tried to convince myself that I don’t need it - because asking her for sympathy is like asking to get punched in the face or something. She’ll just get guilty and hurt and it’s not worth feeling good about myself and what I do to have her feel like that, you know?
