In the next few hundred years the English language will change so much we will start using different vowels for the same sounds. And there will be those who are nostalgic for good old classic spelling.
I mean, how the fuck did 'colour' become 'color'? Who the fuck is responsible for all this shit. Like, ffs I grew up reading American books say 'jail' and now I have to spell it as 'gaol' or else it's wrong. And don't get me started on 'ize'.
This shit was the gutpunch wake-up call I needed. It is legit changing the way I approach my Fear of the Blank Page. Like, I'm gonna be turning a few lines in there into pre-writing "get hype" mantras.
>found out dad has cancer again (after having a largynectomy over the summer) >take most of last week off work to visit family and deal, including taking some unpaid time since I didn't have enough PTO >going back tomorrow >gonna have to explain over and over what happened
Seriously dreading it. I can barely talk about it to anyone without tearing up a bit... Bf advised me to just say "family emergency" but that just evokes more questions
does anyone here know anything about investing in stocks? because fuck I want to.
>>397105 Just tell who you need to tell for work reasons and keep it to yourself for everyone else. Your best friend's right - don't worry about being "mysterious" or any shit like that. Do what you gotta do for you.

I must be autistic, because I can't understand the joy behind competitive gaming unless there are stakes.
If someone wins a game, someone else loses and loss is one of the most unpleasant, most crushing feelings in the world. Therefore to feel good about winning, while your opponent loses, and to call this fun, just seems barbaric to me.
Say the med doc today and she is having me stop the venlaflexin (which has leveled out to 'blah') and start up on two other medications at once, Citalopram and Wellbutrin. I've actually been on both at once, but separately, which she said is odd for one of them (forget which) because it's usually given in addition to something else. So I'll be starting that transition next week. The hope is that this will give me more energy without certain side-effects (constipation, which leads to reduced energy.)
My play opened tonight, it was awesome, I was awesome, and if everything proceeds according to keikaku, I'll be getting my law license in four months, and finally be able to fly away and start my life. I just need to get my sleep schedule, lack of motivation, and depression under control so I can function for the next couple of months. My being off any recreational psychoactive substance (aside from caffeine) for the first time since age 17, and any prescribed psychoactive substance for the first time since age 12, may be to blame.
>>397214 I don't want to block them completely, though. I do want to know about their life happenings, and am okay with the occasional baby photo. The problem is when they upload baby photo after baby photo, each in separate posts.
>>397220 You poor thing, that must have been horrible. ;_;
I don't know why, but it irks me when people make custom thumbnails for their videos. I get that it looks more professional, but at the same time it seems like a pretentious and sellout-y practice especially if your video is a Youtube Poop.
>>397240 yes, and being gay isn't if your mind is wired differently to the point where it negatively affects your life it is called a "disorder" because it's a problem, and is identified as being different from the norm Jesus Christ
>>397240 I'm uncertain, but I think you may be confusing having an antisocial personality disorder with being unsocial, or introverted in some way.
>Antisocial (or dissocial) personality disorder is characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for, or violation of, the rights of others. There may be an impoverished moral sense or conscience and a history of crime, legal problems, and impulsive and aggressive behavior.
>The APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5), defines antisocial personality disorder (Cluster B):
>A) A pervasive pattern of disregard for and violation of the rights of others, occurring since age 15 years, as indicated by three or more of the following: >1.failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest; >2.deception, as indicated by repeatedly lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure; >3.impulsivity or failure to plan ahead; >4.irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults; >5.reckless disregard for safety of self or others; >6.consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations; >7.lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another. >B) The individual is at least age 18 years. >C) There is evidence of conduct disorder with onset before age 15 years. >D) The occurrence of antisocial behavior is not exclusively during the course of schizophrenia or a manic episode. >Antisocial Personality Disorder (ASPD) falls under the dramatic/erratic cluster of personality disorders, the so-called "Cluster B."
>>397248 No, I don't. "uh excuse me why is it that autism is a '''''disorder''' while going to the gym isn't???" That is what that sounded like to me. >don't be a douche It's my default setting, sorry.
>>397246 A disorder's definition was posted, time to make up the flimsiest excuse I can to say someone fits it. Let's see... I'll go with internet piracy. Breaks the DMCA, perpetrators often use handles/aliases and rarely show regret.
Doc confirmed I have a sinus infection, gave me a prescription for antibiotics but said I should hold off on using them to see if it improves on its own. However, whenever I have a sinus infection it comes with this hollow feeling in my nostrils and this very particular smell. The smell drives me fucking insane because it is there all the time, like a song stuck in your head that you hear perfectly and loops forever. So since I had no improvement this morning when I woke up, I started on the antibiotics, because fuck this. 10-day regiment, hopefully it does its stuff sooner than later.
Future reminder that I should wear a mask when sanding off paint. I didn't this time because it's uncomfortable with my glasses on, and the project took over 15 hours, but my snot has been tinged with silver color for a couple days now.
I was watching an episode of (Elementary? The one with Sherlock Holmes and an Asian Watson) since it was left on TV. It had a bit where they were targeted by a group that kinda sounded like it represented 4chan or /i/. I must say, it was much better than most programs doing Internet culture. They had bunch of pizza delivered to them, and after joining a chatroom got told to put 'shoe on head' and show tits or gtfo.
I have figured out how to become a better imageboard poster.
Less text, more images. Relying on text posts only shows that you are trying to turn a board into your personal blog. Posting images is an act of respect for the site; it takes attention away from yourself, and back towards the site's purpose.
>>397343 Like, willfully put it off even though you're capable of seeing it sooner? Personally, no. However, there are multiple studies about the benefits of delayed gratification, though usually these are about getting more of whatever later instead of less now.
Apparently according to /gd/ I'm actually kinda good at graphic design? I mean, I've been an illustrator for years and I've been doodling logos for just as long, but I never assumed it could compare to anything anyone who actually does it for a living does.
With the update to Youtube's My Subscription section, I can't see any text at all in Firefox. I've disabled all ad blocking, element hiding, and themes. It works in IE, so I don't know what the hell is going on with it.
The toxicity of online games really get to me. Any acting like an asshole or just general trash talk/taunting pisses me off to the point where I'm thinking something might be wrong with me.
I know it's just a game and that I shouldn't take something like that seriously, but I can't suppress the feeling I get inside me when I get dominated in a game, and the other guy starts doing lennyface bullshit. I have fantasies of jotting down his personal info, going to find him, and bashing his fucking skull in with a bat. And if I were playing in a LAN type tournament thing? I think that's exactly what I would do if he started trash talking. Stop in the middle of the game, and beat the shit out of them.
I don't get these violent tendencies with literally anything else except sports and games. It's not even the losing, it's the idea of someone gloating that they're better than me at something.
>>397385 The violent desires are probably worth looking into and trying to deal with, but I think the casual acceptance of the shittiness of how people act in online games is pretty fucked up all around. You shouldn't want to bash their faces in with baseball bats, but you are entirely justified in feeling like these people should be shunned and even banned for bad behavior.

I can't stand my friends at times, mostly when they feel compelled to stare at their phone all the time, especially when we're just hanging out. Sometimes it's just one of them, other times it's literally all of them; every single person except me has their head down, eyes glued to whatever app they have open.
And then one of them puts on earphones because when you hang out with friends, you don't want to hear what any of them say. Or worse, when audio just blares out of their phone at full volume as it is incredibly important for everyone to hear the no doubt hilarious Vine they're watching.
I also worry that this is just the new age we live in. Friends share stories not of their own anymore, but of what they read on Facebook. Where jokes are told to each other in the form of referencing and parroting their favorites posts from tumblr. A time of when you're only really social if you're on social media. And I'm worried I'm just too stubborn to change.
>>397398 No. He's normal young adult American nerd overweight. But he comes off as a bit socially weak let's just say. I don't want to make him upset, but at the same time, 'what is that horrible smell coming off you? Please take care of it. I don't want to throw up.'
I fucking hate anyone I see who complains about their relationship going downhill, or about how lonely they are after being single for like a fucking month. Like, fuck you. You should be happy that you got to experience something like that in the first place. Some of us have never been in a relationship or had sex whatsoever. You fucking assholes have no idea what it's like, and you never will. Because you brush it off and say "Oh you'll find someone someday" which is an absolute fucking lie and you know it, you piece of shit.
You don't know me. Who made you the authority on love, implying you know better than I do just because it happened to you? What the hell have you done to deserve happiness? "Be normal and socialize"? Don't make me laugh. Every time I see one of you "normal" fucks walking around with whatever whore you have for a significant other, holding hands and being happy and shit, I think of how satisfying it would be to take a sledgehammer to her stomach and kill her unborn child, just so he doesn't grow up to be as selfish as you. I hope you eat shit and die of AIDS.
>>397443 with that outlook, maybe its for the better
But in full seriousness, you can just do what I did and resign yourself to a life without a significant other nor sex and just be glad you still have a towel, your right hand or a couple of fingers in my case.
>>397445 And how did it happen to you? if you were lonely, and had no friends, how the FUCK did you get into a relationship? Did it just "happen"? If so, why hasn't it happened to me? What fucking god to I have to pray to, in order for me to be happy?
Well, speaking as someone who’s never so much as even been on a goddamn date…have you tried, I dunno, socializing beyond the Internet? I mean, shit, I’m self-aware enough to know that not trying to socialize IRL is at least a third of my major malfunction. What options do you have for socializing IRL? What places around where you live could help you socialize by giving you and other people a common interest over which you could initially bond?
>>397451 You know jack shit about others. You don't know whether others "deserved" anything. You don't know who worked for it, who lucked into it and who cheated. You're whining, because all you understand is that others have something you don't and therefore the world is unfair. Grow the fuck up.
The only variable in your life that you have any actual control over is YOURSELF. Complaining that others got lucky gets you nowhere. If you waste your time crying how everyone but you is an evil cheater, you can't achieve anything.
By the way, if you resent "normies" for being "normal", you're one of them.
Dude. You don’t deserve a goddamn thing just for showing up; the world owes you nothing.
If you have a hobby/interest, find somewhere that both enables you to enjoy said hobby/interest and gives you a chance to socialize with others who share it. Stop crying about how your life sucks—I’ve been there and done that, and it doesn’t help one fucking bit. You know what helps? Saying "what the fuck", taking a chance, and actually putting in the effort to change your shitty life.
Don’t look to me for pity. You’ll find none here, just as plus4 has refused to enable my woe-is-me bullshit in the past (for which I thank the bastard-coated bastards that lurk here). I’ll lend you an ear, and I’ll sympathize with your plight, but I won’t toss you worthless platitudes that will only deepen your narcissistic self-pity. If you want a change in your life, no one else but you can truly make it happen.
You can wallow in your emotional shit or you can get off your ass and fucking do something. What’s it gonna be?
I firmly believe that every cartoon project should have an out-of-the-closet furfag in character design to make sure at least one character appeals to the furry audience. That's the easiest way to get fans.
>>397496 Just the people who have sticks up their butts. Really, ads on the internet can be terrible sometimes, but the ads that are on YouTube are some of the most harmless. They're tastefully placed, they don't interrupt anything else about the site, and even the unskippable video ads are short enough to not be any sort of bother. They need to at least recognize the ads that are on Wikia or most news sites are far worse and be glad that it's nothing like that.
>>397498 Even if you don't mind ads, you shoud still block them. Ad delivery networks don't screen everything perfectly, so every now and then people get malware-infested ads even on "serious" websites.
>girl is /fit/, hard-working, friendly, smart, grade-A, responsible, funny, similar interests and pretty much 9+/10 personality all round. >would be a great influence, and perfect wife material >face is ok Fuck, being shallow sucks sometimes. That said, I'm still considering. I need time to think.
My cousin and his girlfriend were going to have a baby. Sadly, it was stillborn on Friday, about 20 weeks into the pregnancy.
Then, today, I get a card in the mail inviting me to their baby shower (since I get my mail a tad late, they were likely sent early last week or the week prior.) Man, that's got to be a kick to the gut when people call up to RSVP for your dead baby's shower...
>>397705 The sort of people who get that excited over such things won't make it 2 feet out of the house. And most people rarely mean what they say online. It's mostly hyperbole and exaggeration. Like you for example.
I found out that the new antidepressants I'm taking makes me sweat profusely when I sweat at all. I was pulling weeds yesterday evening, and while it was cool outside I expected to sweat a little. However, after 20 minutes I was literally dripping sweat at a large rate if I leaned over, as though I had just ran a marathon. Even just moving something 40-50 lbs between will make me sweat a little, and once I sweat a little I sweat a lot.
This may actually be useful for weight loss, were I to start working out even the tiniest bit...
>>397740 Sweating doesn't actually make you lose weight, except for like ~5 pounds of stored water weight. Mostly it just dehydrates you though, which is actually pretty bad for losing weight. >>397741 >>397744 I did first start posting here when I was like 15 though. Captain Raptor is the one who actually told me to get a name, she said I was her favorite anon. :')
>went to the Lourve and all over Italy >assuming all statues are flaccid, the only roman statue with a penis as big as mine was Sleeping Hermaphroditus (that's Ancient for 'trap') I don't know how to feel about this.
I wish remastering any music that was released on CD on day one would become a crime.
As a rule, when something was mastered for CD back in the day, the people responsible did their job right. The right solution for preserving quality would be just to clone the digital PCM files from older CDs and writing them onto new CDs.
How many more albums would become ruined due to pointless remastering?
What in the everliving fuck is going with Youtube right now? Some videos I can watch in HD without any problems and some I can't even watch at 144p without waiting a minute for it to load the next 10 seconds. It's completely fucked.
So many adamantly flaming anti-feminist blogs keep reblogging my old work and its just amazing i wish i had that reaction pic of the guy with the big glasses with his hands on the sides of his face just going :O
because thats my reaction whenever someone who's blog is anti-[person] every 2 posts reposts a sketchsheet of mine from 2013.
>>397841 Seeing as how I've had 2 people I know irl come to me for customized diet and exercise plans, one of which has since hit her goal weight and passed her fitness assessment test (started in January), I am, at minimum, effective. >>397836 Despite science and virgins' best efforts, there is still no quick-fit solution. Determination and resolve is still the way to go. Sorry friend.
>>397854 Hey man, just because you and I don't agree with them doesn't make them invalid. Some people are wired differently and really can be in love with multiple people. Some others are fine with being in a multi-person relationship. Some people manage to find 2+ other people who are all poly and all happen to fall in love and it's just a wild possibly-literal circlejerk of love. A question I have is where they find the time to be with more than one person though. I have like maybe 2 hours of free time per day as it is.
>send message to online FB person >no response >next day, FB person logs on a heap of times and is active most of the day >still no response >captains log: 1.9 days, realise I might be being ignored. hope is dwindling. >>"Sorry for the late reply!" What the hell? Furthermore, why has this happened more than once?
>>397875 Your case is less weird. I got blocked by a musician from posting anything on his page. The worst part? I don't know what I said wrong. There was no explanation, no "you hurt my feelings please apologize" warning. Just blocked. And now I will never be able to ask what I did wrong.
I spoken to/had email correspondence with other musicians, and the same thing never happened, and they were all friendly.
>>397875 Sometimes people just don't feel like answering and put it off until later. Not out of malevolence or dislike or anything, they're just fucking lazy and can use "I didn't see it!" as an excuse for not getting back to you until they feel like it or have to.
>>397855 >A question I have is where they find the time to be with more than one person though. I have like maybe 2 hours of free time per day as it is. My boyfriend talks about how his fantasy is having a harem (fucking anime) and I'm always like "imagine spending time with 5 other girls like you do with me. Going out, cuddling, watching stuff together, talking about things we like, comforting me when I'm sad." and that never fails to get him to say "yeah, yeah it's impossible, that's a lot of work. It's just a fantasy."
>>397881 Yeah, you can only use their barely functional shit pile of a HTML5 player now. It's trash. I wish the other video sites had half the content. I've wanted to have an alternative for years because Youtube has been getting worse and worse with every "update".
>>397879 Well, I bought every track from iTunes. I guess there might be a chance it was me mentioning that I recorded a "listen before it's taken off" track [musician] put on Soundcloud for a few days. I guess [musician] was afraid I would share it with others. Which would be paranoid, but the only possible explanation.
>>397882 I think the biggest problems with YouTube are: - Owners trying to make it into Facebook for years now. - Tons of shit content no one is taking down, even if the quality is objectively garbage. - Tons of identical reuploads. For example, the new Star Wars trailer was reuploaded about 500 times FOR NO REASON.
>>397889 Maybe you cannot have a dictator decide what stays and goes from YT. But you can have many different video hosting sites, each specializing in their own category of video. That would even the crap between the competitors.
>>397894 Literally the worst form of video. Even the nasally household tutorials that end with "and uh, if you could, please rate and comment, it really helps me out, and uh, if you liked the video, please subscribe, it would really help me out" are a better entertainment genre.
>>397895 Ever consider entertainment to be subjective? Its dumb and stupid and funny if you have a taste for it. There's plenty of youtube I have absolutely no stomach for - but even then I wouldn't say the website should delete it because of its quality just because its not up to their standards either.
>>397891 That happens on a minor level. Vimeo is clearly for more crafted and original works, even if YT are leaning more to that side themselves. Sure, there's no more albinoblacksheep and newgrounds doesnt have the same market anymore. But that's really because that's just the name of the game. The market pointed towards YT and that's where its gone. If there's to be competish for the site, someone's gotta step up and make that a thing, not just make a Lets Play On Demand site and say that's a thing now.
I mean I'm not huge on YT but that idea's wholly impractical.
>>397897 >voice an opinion about what has proper entertainment values >"t-that's subjective" Yeah right, next you'll try to convince me that my political ideals aren't necessarily the best option for all demographics. Not today, buddy. >>397900 Same, but I was also being sincere.
>>397902 It's a meme born from the fact that having a caloric surplus--ending your day with more calories in you than you burned that day--is required by the laws of physics to put on muscle mass. Cardio burns calories, thus putting you further from that goal. It can be compensated for by just eating more though, but most people who work out are huge babies who think that changing their diet is the hardest thing ever, so.
That said, if you're fat it doesn't really matter cause you've got a ton of calories sitting on your tummy. A pound of body fat contains about 3500 calories. In this case, you can do the mythological "losing fat while gaining muscle" by simply eating to maintain your current weight while hitting the weights. But if you're like, obese, maybe eat at a deficit anyway.
Regardless, cardio is super good for you, and if lifting weights doesn't get your heart rate going, then run or swim or mountain climb or whatever you want. Just make sure to eat more to compensate if you're trying to put on mass.
Whenever someone says "it's not black & white it's shades of grey" they are simultaneously right AND wrong, since grey doesn't exist, being a combination of black and white (once you look at the colour through a magnifying glass).
>>397914 >grey doesn't exist Fucking hell Twister. You're at it again. You're just like some kid I know who thinks aluminium foil is one atom thin and that TV static is the universe expanding, except not quite as munted. although I do admit it wouldn't be the same if you stopped
That's like saying white doesn't exist because it is a combination of all visible light wavelengths.
>>397960 As in, she unprivatised her account for a day, google listed her Instagram account in their searches, and now when her stalker mom googles her name it comes up. She wants her instagram stuff off of google searches.
Ahahaha. Lifehacker's facebook page posted a link to Kotaku, and I and a few others made comments on their post about how much Kotaku sucks. Our comments were removed and it appears I've been banned from commenting. I love inadvertently trolling people (in this case those who watch the Gawker Facebook pages.)
I'm stretching myself too thin. I want to do everything but I don't have the time, energy, or capacity to plan and stick to a schedule for the long run. I may have to drop a hobby or interest. Which sucks because I'll just boomerang back to it and have it encompass my life for days, thus eating up more of my time.
>>398036 When faced with deciding if something is a sandwich, I refer to the invention of the sandwich, wherein the Earl of Sandwich asked for his meat between two pieces of bread so he could eat with one hand and gamble with the other.

>>398079 >I can handle rejection, but this is just sadistic. But anon, she can't say no, because you're gonna rape her if she does. She has to leave you dangling forever and you have to take that for an answer.
>>398085 I am being kinda dicky here, I'll admit that. But it's for the best, I think. Not my dickiness, but being curt about these things.
There are like a trillion reasons someone might not want to date you. About a trillion reasons you probably don't want to date someone else. Don't dwell on it and move on. Some people are just not compatible with each other, so why put so much energy into it when the other person has made her decision?
Besides, being a sad sack is just going to hurt you in the end. Bounce back from that shit and talk to someone else. You might be surprised.
>>398082 Consider this: What kind of lasting relationship can she actually offer, given that she can't even reject someone properly? And what else might she refuse to talk about? Trust and communication is crucial, and if she's acting like this already just think what kinds of problems could accumulate over several years together. Look for someone else, and don't even acknowledge it if she changes her mind. Her problems are not something you need to deal with.
>>398100 She may not actually have communication issues. It might just be that she doesn't want to communicate with him.
There are tons of dudes out there who don't take rejection well. I'm talking about straight up threats of violence due to getting rejected. Don't take it personally. She has no way of knowing if you're one of them.
>>398101 >She may not actually have communication issues. It might just be that she doesn't want to communicate with him. Which, I think, does not refute much of of what I said. If someone can't trust you enough to reject you, what chance do you have of building a relationship based on trust? That obviously wouldn't lead anywhere good.

It's been a while since I was last in therapy, but isn't the first session of therapy meant to make you feel better? I admit, I should've been paying more attention to what kind of therapy it'd be when I had that phone conversation, but this feels more like homework than therapy. Reeeeeally doesn't help that I found that one of the reasons this new therapy is so popular is because it's comparatively cheaper than other kinds of therapy.
>>398141 When you live off your parents' money for long enough, you forget that things are supposed to be paid for. That, and being used to piracy from a young age: you want something? – just download it for free in 5 minutes!
>>398176 That does seem like bullshit at first, but stick with it as long as you can. It could help in the long run.
Of course, if it's still making you feel worse after two or three sessions, then drop her like a hot potato. If you can afford, just look into getting a local psychiatrist.
A website that was recommended to me, but that I haven't really used, is http://7cupsoftea.com/. It connects you to someone else, and you can basically just spew forth all that is in your mind. The other people aren't psychiatrists, just volunteers, but having a sounding board to talk at can be useful in its own right.

>>398203 The evidence that has been provided about how her accusation is "false" are so fucking flimsy I'm surprised anyone is willing to admit they found it compelling.
I've had to move mattresses before. They're a pain in the ass. A lot of people must believe this girl is *really* enthusiastic about false rape accusations if they honestly believe she'd do it for a year just to troll someone.
>>398210 >The evidence that has been provided about how her accusation is "false" are so fucking flimsy I'm surprised anyone is willing to admit they found it compelling. It was enough too get the accused fellow cleared three separate times, I'd say that's worth something.
>>398212 >It was enough too get the accused fellow cleared three separate times, I'd say that's worth something. It is incredibly easy to get cleared of rape allegations, especially when it's in the best business interests of the investigating body (i.e. the college) to not be thought of as the sort of place where rapes happen.

Now I get to check up on all the art I've missed out on. I love this part!
So a tall tree fell on my house last night. It was in my backyard. Took out my chimney and it's laying on my roof now. Other than the chimney sized leak in the roof, no major damage. Weird thing too, the tree itself looks healthy enough. Could have been lighting, maybe rot, or maybe that tree was just a jerk that just wanted to lay down on the house. It's going to take me months to cut this tree apart.
Well after several months of willfully refusing medicine and seeing doctors my mom kicked the bucket. I know it's not proper to be so angry at something like this, but I can't help but wish I was more forceful.
The office next door is getting rid of a desk that is exactly the kind that I want: simple, solid, wide. I would like to take it apart both to fit it completely in my hatchback (currently sticking out of the back, strapped down), but there is no visible hardware connecting the pieces. Prying a foot off, it appears that it was put together using a system like a cam fastener, but instead of an exposed head that you turn to lock the screw there is a recessed rail that the screw slides (and then locks) into. I've never encountered this before; does anyone know anything about it? Any way to dislodge it? Looks like the same system is used for connecting every piece (two feet, two legs, table top, and the back).
Disconnecting would also be extremely handy for getting it up the stairs. Absolute last resort is tearing out the pieces; as long as I can do that in one piece I can drill holes and put it back together with different hardware.
>local nerd convention lets people volunteer in exchange for weekend passes >sign up for volunteering months in advance >I'm to volunteer on the 29th of May >recieve a letter from the job centre today saying "Hey, you're coming in on the 29th of May. Here's a half-arsed apology for pulling this on you at such short notice" >try to get them to reschedule, turns out I've got another appointment that day that the letter didn't mention I've been looking forward to this for months, and the job centre fuck with me because they can. I know that's not strictly what happened, but that's what it feels like. >>398181 Back when I got counselling a few years ago, my first session made me feel like I'd gotten a lot off my chest. CBT made me feel like I'd attended yet another session with local government that was mostly about filling in forms.
>>398269 I can't believe they treated Eminem explaining slant rhyme as though he were revealing something that people haven't been doing for eons. W.B. Yeats was positively disgusting with his use of slant rhyme some times.
Also, without even having to bother with slant rhyme: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blorenge
As long as we're on the subject of words with "no perfect rhymes," let's get "purple" and "silver" out of the way: http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/curple http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/chilver
Oh god, bad enough that mom is gone, a professor I was fairly close to as well as another well respected scientist I wasn't close to but have friends who were also just passed away suddenly of heart attacks. And this morning another one was killed in a fucking hit and run during a car chase. Worst fucking year of my life.
>>398299 Nah. Nothing to left say here that I haven't already said to my folks in real life, other than that I'm a godawful hardened bitch who takes a small amount of solace in the schadenfreude of "at least I'm not the only one".
