I was actually sad to leave. I feel like there are too many distractions where I live, doubly so in a city, and were I to live somewhere rural I'd have the time to do the things I really want to do, like improve on my nature photography, astronomy, write, think, etc.

    Living in a rural area is usually a shitload of work that swiftly devours most of your free time.

    I dropped my unspeakable horror of a math class. It was a battle I was not going to win and it's not required for me to get my degree, nor is it immediately applicable to my research and barely applicable to my field in general, which is more about probability than theoretical math surrounding physics.

    Unfortunately, it was 4 credit hours and I needed to add a dissertation credit to cover the gap and prevent myself from losing funding. Holy fucking shit that was a lot of paper work. I'm so very glad that my advisor was on board with this drop choice (and that he's the department head).

    i can't even remember anything specific

    oh wait i remember one thing

    i was on antidepressants and i forgot one day

    so the next day frankie and i were about to go to a restaurant and i remembered so i took two

    only it turned out that i didn't take two antidepressant. i took two very heavy doses of xanax.

    i don't remember it at all, but frankie tells me that i got kind of wobbly on the way and seemed a little out of it, and while i was at the (tiny) restaurant i was really loud and kept spilling food in my lap and made loud asides about the lesbian couple in the corner and all kinds of embarrassing stuff.

    i mean i don't even remember it, and thinking about it just makes my stomach sink.

    I really like house hunters on hgtv. THe houses are cool and you get to pick apart the couples and try to figure out if they're going to divorce

    I yell at them when they behave stupidly and I point out when the realtor is being conniving. Also when the couple picks the wrong house.

    So this article is pretty sad, it sounds like the researchers are doing everything possible but it doesn't look so good for the trees. One thing that jumped out at me though, is the way they write the name of the guy who cut down the world's oldest living tree first middle last just like a serial killer.

    My freshman year of college was so mediocre. I don't know why I'm not acing all of my classes right now. I need to be more committed because I don't have a plan B.

    I've been having this problem this semester. I wasn't putting enough time into my classes. Try to block out a period of study time and keep reminding yourself that you have to stick with it. Get a notebook and write down your assignments and due dates so you don't forget anything. Today I went to the library after class and I identified what I was having trouble with (in chemistry) and then I went though the textbook and read the relevant sections and did the assignments until I got it. It feels good after you do it.

    I also found it helpful to purposefully segment your schedule to where you have an hour or two each day where you can't really do anything else but study or read

    so, time between classes, breaks between work shifts if you're working a job like that, etc

    Yeah, I have a lot of down-time between classes so I'll study during those hours and I won't leave school until I've done enough work.

    Well the basic idea is to specifically get away from other people, so what all of you hate is what I find appealing.

    You don't see many hermits these days

    What is it about people that you hate?

    I don't hate people. I just haven't had great luck interacting with them and I'm at a point where I no longer care to try anymore. I've reached a point where I am content to just have myself and my own thoughts for company.

    People in rural areas tend to be much more socially clingy than any other breed of human.

    After all they aren't necessarily anti-social and there's so few people to befriend so they get all up ins even if you don't want to talk to them. I went to high school in a fairly remote, smallish town (of 20,000) and even at that size our neighbors were so desperate for human interaction that it got to be intolerable.

    hahaha she told me about that. she maintained that you were saying it was so nice the lesbians were able to be out in public

    but mine usually are... stupid things I do while drunk. and I had a biggole crush on a straight friend of mine and it was a long time ago so I'm like god in retrospect it must have been so obvious and sad.

    It's not so much privacy as it is anonymity.

    Hey people in long term relationships

    Do you ever find that your SO does not fulfill your social urge anymore? Like I want to talk to people and shit but Choco does not scratch that urge at all.

    It's not like I dislike him or find him unfun to be around. He's basically my best friend.
