In the interest of not having the current hug thread go kablooey, and not daunting newbies with 50 pages worth of hugs, I present the newest hug thread.

Why did we need a new hug thread, anyway? [Confused]
 
Posted by rivka (Member # 4859) on :
 
Because 50 pages of hugs is a lot for people on dialup to load (and trust me, it did take a bit), takes considerable bandwidth/storage space, and is rather daunting for newbies?

Posted by Alcon (Member # 6645) on :
 
Ya know... if life throws enough shit your way, ya kinda begin to become immune to it, as long as you have enough good things to counteract it.

...still I wish life would decide to give me a break, its thrown more than my share of crap at me since april :/

...on the bright side, plenty of awesome things have happened since april as well...

Eh... I could still use a hug for the latest piece of... bad stuff though [Frown]

Edit: and considering the number of typo's I had there perhaps I should go get some sleep now.

I feel like an idiot. yesterday, I was clearing small trees away from a old house that we were going to (and still did) burn. While I was walking from one tree to another, I accidentally stepped on a log, almost fell, and managed to cut my leg with the chain saw (4 inch long, 1/8 of an inch wide, and about 1/8 of an inch deep). So of course I said a few choice words, took off my shirt and used it to stop the bleeding as I hobbled a quarter mile back to the house, where in my infinite intelligence, I refused to let my parents take me to get stitches. I used some of the my liquid stitch stuff that I still have from back in my wrestling days, and went back and finished the job.

Now, it hurts even worse than when I did it, the liquid stitch wares out every 8 hours or so, and it's too late to go for real stitches. [Wall Bash] I feel rather stupid for this... I should have just given up on making any progress, and gone to the hospital.

Posted by J T Stryker (Member # 6300) on :
 
True, but they won't put stitches in more than 18 hours after the accident occurred (or at least that's what they tell athletic trainers, and back packers), and if they won't put stitches in all I'd be going for is for pain, which I can survive.

So we just got hit by another hurricane. Seems to be no notice of it anywhere. I guess America's sick of hearing about our troubles.
 
Posted by J T Stryker (Member # 6300) on :
 
I went, they took out the liquid stitches (which hurt very much), they scratched their heads, asked me when it happened, lectured me about how they would have put stitches in if I came in sooner, put liquid stitches back on it, and gave me prescription strength tylenol. Perfect waste of 2 hours.

I managed to get a cold... it was originally just a slightly stuff nose (which I couldn't figure out where it was coming from). Now its developed into a full fledged cold, runny nose, stuff up nose, sneezing, coughing, tiredness... ugh. I hate getting sick [Frown]

On the bright side, my mom is very good at taking care of sick kids [Smile] And I'm at my moms house right now.

I'm just kinda going through a rough phase right now... I'm realizing that no matter what I try to accomplish, I can't... I'm too much of a procrastinator, I have no self-motivation or discipline to do anything properly, not even things that I want to do, and are not just a chore, like find a voice teacher so I can get back to doing the one thing I truly love. It's as though I'm looking at myself from far away and watching myself throw my life away by not managing to do anything right. And I watch this frustrate me, I watch it frustrate my parents, I watch it frustrate everyone involved... I watch my parents try to talk to me about it, I watch myself push them away, and above all, I watch myself cry. I watch myself cry a hell of a lot more than I'd like to.

Thanks for the hugs, everyone... it's just that at times like this I really really hate myself. I really am a failure... I love you all, and thank you to all of my wonderful friends here, but I really wish I was someone else. Or at least that I was completely different. I feel like I'm a Raia who's very difficult to live with.

I have to decide today whether I want to pay $800 to get someone to help with financial aid for college. It might be a big help to get someone elso to do the paperwork, and negotiating with the colleges, or it might be a ripoff. I really don't know what to do. [Frown]

Posted by fugu13 (Member # 2859) on :
 
Its a ripoff.

Fill out the financial aid paperwork carefully, and use the available extra space to explain things in more detail.

Then, if you feel with the awards you receive you can't attend the school you really want to, call the school up "I really want to attend your school, but due to my parent's retirement benefits which they can't access (or whatever you think is overinflating your required contribution) I am unable to afford the $x you are asking I contribute. I would love to go to your school, but it looks like I'll have to go to school Y, which is requiring me to contribute less money"

Also, don't be skittish about loans. You likely will have to take out some loans, especially if you go to a good school. Loans are not evil. Credit card debt, which is what many people who do not get enough loans substitute with, is evil in your situation.

I didn't sign up for it. If I had done it, they probably would have saved me at least the amount of money I paid them. However, after going to one workshop, I feel like I can do most of it myself, or at least try.

I could really really use some hugs right now.

My dad made a nice breakfast for me this morning, which I wasn't able to eat cause I don't eat breakfast and I really wasn't hungry. I still was thankful for it, and tried to show it as best I could when I've just woken up. Anyone who knows me can tell ya I'm not a morning person though, and I always seem upset or grouchy or grumpy when ever anyone talks to me in the morning. They're always asking if I'm alright, unless they know me really well. Well dad, who should know me better than anyone, decided that I was being nasty to him this morning by not finishing the breakfast he made me and my brother. He yelled at me about it this morning. He's apparently been pissed about it all day while I spent 4 and a half hours scanning people in and out of a university big ten football game, and now I get home exhausted from that and he yells and screams at me more about it. When I tried to tell him that I did really appreciate it that I wasn't being nasty he said "**** you Daniel, Don't think I couldn't see it with my own eyes. Don't insult me and tell me I'm going nuts that I didn't see it." I think he's going crazy... and its made all the worse by the fact that when he's not like this he's an awesome guy and an awesome dad! [Frown] [Frown] [Frown]

I just backed into a parked car. Not only was it a parked car, it was a 1978 red Buick, in perfect condition, with a "For Sale Sign" in the window. If that isn't bad enough, it belongs to a volunteer that works with my church youth group. When I went back in to tell him, He just said, "Ok" got up, came out to look at it, and went back inside without another word. I have to say, I feel like shit, I just backed into the car of a man who I look up to. [Cry] [Wall Bash] [Cry]

Ok, so I was supposed to be at a psychology study at 7. I knew it would take me about 15 minutes to walk there so I got in bed about 6:30 and planned on getting out and leaving at 6:45. I looked at my watch at 6:42 and decided to take advantage of the 3 minutes I had left. The next time I woke up it was 7:15. The thing is, we have to go to 10 of these a year, and everytime you miss one you have to go to one more. I've already missed one and been late to one, though luckily the one I was late to the grad student just counted as though I'd never signed up. I don't understand this, though. I'm normally a very concientious person, how can I be so unreliable about this?
 
Posted by Corwin (Member # 5705) on :
 
((((rivka))))

((((blacwolve)))) Count me in too, blacwolve, about being unreliable. Although, not about the *usualy concientious* part! [Smile] My solution, whenever I don't want to be late: set (at least) two alarm clocks, one to wake you up, and one to tell you: "If you don't get out of bed right now, you're not gonna make it." The latter should be loud and far, far away from the bed, so you'd have to get up in order to stop it.......... Of course, it will just happen that that particular night there will be a momentary blackout and your electrical alarm clock would reset itself, and then the batteries of your cellphone will decide to die during the night... and you'd wake up all happy, sun shining, birds singing, and late as this years autumn in Montreal... [Dont Know]

((((Stryker)))) I'm sorry to hear this... I hope you'll talk to that person again about it and pass over it somehow.

((((Alcon)))) Hmm... Seems like your father may have some problems, at work maybe? I know it happens to me from time to time to say things I don't really mean to just because I'm not in a good mood. Being tired sometimes makes you pick on anything and everything. And it's easiest to hurt the closest friends/family, since you know them so well... Since you say that your dad's normally very good to you, I think you'll just have to forgive him this time and move on.

((((Raia)))) I'm glad your flight went ok. So, how long are you staying?

((((tt&t)))) Hehe, I'm not saying "On the turning away" isn't good, it's just that I wondered how come that particular one got stuck in my head?! Anyway, this past few days, with the accident and all, really got music off of my head, but it's coming back. With a vengeance! [Big Grin]

I'm using "felled" as meaning knocked over, which is among the meanings given by www.m-w.com . They were knocked over; they've been replanted and tied to porch railings and/or stakes, as appropriate, so they are upright and well.

I have a term paper due friday that I haven't started and I can't work on now because I'm crying to hard. And I haven't started on it yet because I'm not smart enough to write it. And I'm wondering why I ever came to college at all because everything's too hard for me.

You know, Raia and blacwolve, both of you are in new situations, and it just takes a while--no matter how old you are. I went through it when I went to a--short!--summer seminar at the Naval Academy after my junior year in high school, and I went through it when I took off my junior year of college to work in Tennessee, and again when I went to graduate school, and even again when I moved--with my whole family!--away from Miami. There's nothing I can say that will make you feel better right now, but what you are feeling is normal, and it will go away--but only if you keep trying, don't give up, and don't run away from the scary/lonely/new things.

I could use a hug. I just got my SAT scores back. [Frown]
This is the second time I've taken it, and I was so sure I did better this time. I missed less questions, I was more confident, I felt like I had done better, and I couldn't wait to check my scores. It was 30 points lower. [Cry]

Posted by kyrie (Member # 6415) on :
 
((((((((((eruve))))))))))))))) standerdised tests are horrible things. If you end up makeing your self take it again, i highly recomend one of the study books.
They explain how it is graded. Like, sometimes, it is better to skip a question unless you can cross out 2 options... but only for some sections [Roll Eyes] .
They go over how the questions are ordered, and what ones are worth spending extra time working on.

But if you deside not to take it again, then relize that you (probably) did perfectly well, even if it was not as good as you liked. And that your SAT score is not everything that colleges look at (luckly!). Present your self well in your applications can deffinitly make up for a not haveing as good a score as you would like [Smile] .

Most importantly, dont judge yourself by the twisted logic of a standerdeised test. Speeking as someone who has strugeled all my life with the blasted things, I know that I am worth so much more then a test like that says I am. Some people express their inteligence in ways that just do not show up (or in many cases hurt) on a test score.
Do your best to expres your inteligence in other ways on your apps.

I usually don't venture into here, but Eruve, don't worry about your SAT scores too much. I took the SAT on my 18th birthday, so obviously I had other things on my mind and ended up with a so-so score. I never retook the test, and was accepted at the college of my choice and awarded a dean's scholarship. Don't stress! It's made out to be a much bigger deal than it is.

My grandmother is in the hospital right now. [Frown] Last friday about half of my family (myself included) wasn't feeling so well, and we figured it was something we ate. But my grandmother had been feeling worse and worse, and by Saturday night we had to take her to the emergency room. They ran a bunch of tests, and have been keeping an eye on her, but still aren't sure what it is. They think it's either Gastro entoritis (sp?) or an obstruction. I stayed there with her on Sunday, and it was really tough seeing her in that condition. She's always looked young and healthy for her age. I've never seen her look so terrible. [Frown]

When's the last time you told your parents the bad things about you they didn't really want to know?! I just did, even though the internet connection closed just when I wanted to send the email. I already saved it and was able to send it. I'm in quite a bad situation - school-wise -, all of it due only to me. I could have had no worries should I have chosen that, and I don't really understand why I didn't. Mostly fear, fear of too many things to do... And I'm getting tired of it, and facing it alone. I also wrote them stuff I lied to them about the previous two-three years, mostly because I thought they would not understand me. I've come to realize in the meantime that most of that was stupid from my part, so even if I understand why I acted the way I did, I don't approve it. And I need help, damn it, and I'm usually too scared to ask for it. Not anymore. And if my parents are to help me in anyway, I think they deserve to know who they're helping. I'm tired of lying, covering the truth, whatever. And I'm so relieved to have sent them the e-mail, you can't even imagine!

And yeah, rivka, you should change the threads title back to Need a hug, etc., it's hard to find it.

Edit: "When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am"

Hmmm, that story sounds familiar. I needed some time off. After three years of banking, I'm ready to go back to school. Maybe all you need is some time off to find yourself.

As for the parents, well, that's tougher. I've decided no one is ever as honest with the people they love as they'll tell you you need to be. Especially with parents.

I know how afraid I was of disappointing them. I finally had to decide, it isn't their life. I'm the one who has to be happy with my own decisions. If they love me, eventaully they'll see that what I'm doing is for the best. Even if they hate it. [Big Grin]

That's one of the things I said too; last year my only real vacation was the Christmas one, too short, too busy. The school year went from bad to worse, I spent the Easter vacation trying to study, no summer vacation due to the internship, and the day I finished it I took the plane to Canada to start this school year. The school year before that was already bad; and because of another internship I had a 3-weeks summer vacation only. So yeah, I'm really overdue for some good relaxing...

I know, but I can be quite honest with people if I want to. Call me an anomaly... [Big Grin] I can also lie to them without any remorse, if I decide they can't handle the truth. Good, bad, who cares? But I NEED them. Of all the friends I have, I don't think any of them are actually able to help me, not that they wouldn't try.

I talked to my boss today to find out what was going on. He said that business had been really bad that year, and that it was time for him to give it up. He's trying to sell it, but if that doesn't work, he's closing sometime after christmas. He claims he was going to tell us soon. I can just imagine it..."Merry Christmas! Oh, by the way, don't bother coming into work next week, 'cause...um...the store won't be here...". But I doubt anybody will buy it. When I first found out, my first thought was "Oh no! I won't have a job!" But after thinking about it for a while I realised that I won't have anyplace to hang out, play games, etc, there's a lot of people I've met there that I'll probably never see again...I'll have no life if it closes!!!

Can I have a hug? My aunt and uncle and the two cousins that are left came over tonight, as well as my grandfather and great aunt... we lit the third candle together, and had a big festive dinner. But it was so awful... we had long awkward silences where we would just all stare at the candles, whenever someone would crack a family joke (that Tiltan would always respond to), or when we tried to talk about Hanukkah last year (which she was at), etc... it was impossible to enjoy it. Most everyone got along alright, but I sat silently on the couch and stared at the flames, with the tears just streaming down my cheeks. Finally, I couldn't take it anymore, and I ran off to my room. I sat there crying by myself until my aunt came in the room, and then we sat there together, in complete silence, just crying. Then they left.

But I haven't stopped crying. This is the first time I've had to celebrate something like this without her (when we've been here, that is). I was closest to her out of my immediate family, and my aunt tells me that whenever she suggested to Tiltan that they invite my family over for dinner, she always got really excited, because she and I were very close. Even if she had plans with her friends (which she wouldn't cancel for anyone else, except for a few people), she wouldn't give up on getting together with us. And something like this, candle-lighting at Hanukkah, all together... that's not something she would have easily said no to.

I try so hard to move on, to try and think of other things, but it's impossible, everything keeps reminding me of her. That and I keep finding myself in situations where I think "Tiltan would really have loved this." My sister and I even made a menorah in the shape of eight baby ducklings and a mother duck for the shamash, and I started crying when we were finished because Tiltan always did this Donald Duck impression, and my sister would always ask her to do it again and again, because it was so good. I know, it's a silly thing to be upset about, or even to remember, but...

Sorry, forgive me for rambling. I just... can I have a hug? [Cry]

I hate to be the one to suggest it, but have you thought about seeing the doctor? It may be time for some SSRIs. Being sad is normal. Being so sad you can't get through your day because it's been taken over by feelings of despair is a bad thing. But it's fixable.

I know. I was on Paxil for a few months after my boyfriend and I broke up. (They claim you need to be on it for a year for it to work, but my script ran out after three months. The refill didn't get called in until I'd been off the meds several days, and I was fine. [Dont Know] )

I was sick for a while on it. I had terrible insomnia and had to get sleeping pills for the first couple weeks. But I could look at my problem and come to terms with it. And that's something I couldn't do on my own.

Think about it. ((Raia))

Posted by blacwolve (Member # 2972) on :
 
I know this doesn't really fit here, but does anyone know if it's possible to get a therapist online for not too much money?

Because I don't really feel comfortable crying in front of people for a variety of reasons, and it's really hard for me to talk about things that are bothering me without crying. So my current therapy sessions in person are going no where. However, they are through the school, so they're free, and I couldn't afford the $75/hour that most therapists charge, so I don't know what to do.
 
Posted by rivka (Member # 4859) on :
 
My understanding is that any therapist who would be willing to treat a patient online is unethical -- at best. mack can correct me if I'm wrong, but body language and facial expressions are HUGELY important for the therapist to observe. And that's just not possible, even with a webcam.

As far as being comfortable crying in from of other people -- I'm not either. But sometimes it really is necessary . . .

Posted by blacwolve (Member # 2972) on :
 
No, you don't understand, I can't. I know I'm supposed to, I know it would help the therapy move forward hugely, but I can't. I don't cry in front of people, I just don't. My mom is the only person who's ever really seen me cry and that's only because she forced her way into my room when I was crying. It's like there's some subconcious part of my brain that thinks, "oh look, people, turn off the crying glands." I might be able to force some tears out of my eyes, but I could never force out a hysterical tantrum like I have when I'm really upset for my therapist.
 
Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
 
I know that feeling, blacwolve... I understand. I think that's one of the reasons I'm so anti-therapist, is instead of turning on my emotions, they sort of block them. (I'm sorry, I don't have helpful advice, just sympathetic commiserating)... Good luck with that. [Frown]

It's 2:04 am. I went to bed at 11:45. I haven't been able to sleep. It's been like this since Tiltan died. I am unable to fall asleep... and everytime it's worse. I've also been crying since about 1:00, and rather than stopping, I'm just crying more and more and more as time goes on here... I can't lie in bed anymore. I had to get out for a bit.

Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
 
Corwin, looks like that's happening... I physically can't sleep. Studies have shown that when a person gets just two hours less than he or she's used to per night for a week, that person has as little control over themselves as someone who's drunk. People who've driven in that condition have been just as irresponsible and sporadic as drunk drivers. Isn't that scary?

But anyway, that means that soon I'll be tired enough that hopefully even insomnia won't be able to stop me. I'll try, anyway.

Thanks, everyone.

Raia: That's not really what I'm talking about. It's more like doing a sport or another... Running. I don't know what you like as sports though. One time I was so mad I could hit anything, and it got me a nice little mark on my left forearm. Afterwards, instead of doing that, I'd do pushups and other exercices until my hands would ache, I almost couldn't breathe, etc. I'd stop, start over, and keep on going until all my anger, frustration, despair would be out of me. As I've said, doesn't help in the long run, but sure is beneficial for the moment. Lying in bed waiting to sleep and not being able to doens't count as "exhausting" yourself, as you've already experienced it it's closer to being drunk... Definitely not something you want! Not to scare you, but you can go on like that for days and still not be able to sleep. I know it's hard, but do something about it!

Look, the only times i have been able to cry in front of a theipist is when they ask questions, and I make myself give an honist responce. If they dont ask I dont offer...
But when a theripist askes you a question, dont just give an normal awnser. THINK about it, and then awnser. Ever sence I started going to a theripist I have started awnsering almost all the questions people ask me honistly. If they dont want to know, then they should not ask.
Other theripist have a method of letting the patent talk and leaveing it open somewhat... that really dosenot work for me, or for you two, it would seem.
If you get sort of to that edge where you upset but crying... LET the thripist SEE it, they they will ask more questions to get to the bottom of it.
--Blacwolf- I sugest you tell your thripist about not being able or wanting to cry in front of her (or other people)... if its a problem in your life, its part of her job to help you with it.
--Raia- I suspect talking to someone out side of your family would be really healthy for you... please just go. You body is telling you you need help... its dangerus to ignore it.... PLEASE go.
 
Posted by blacwolve (Member # 2972) on :
 
What helps for me is to do something to break yourself out of it. I know for me at least part of the trouble is that you don't really want to stop being depressed. Like, I say I do, but really there's something incredibly comforting about tears and pain that I don't want to leave. So it helps if I do something to break myself out of that.

Also, I might be the only person who does this, but when I'm depressed I keep on thinking, "Why doesn't anyone notice? Why isn't anyone doing anything?" It's only been recently that I've realized that no one is ever going to be able to do anything. That I have to do it myself. That my future happiness, that me being stable in the future depends only on what I do or do not do. If I don't confront it and stop it, no one else will be able to. The only way you can stop being depressed is by you making a concious decision that you no longer will allow yourself to be depressed, and reminding yourself of that everytime you start to slide.

It's not a cure-all, and it's not going to work all at once, and you're going to regress; but until you make that one decision and put all of your willpower behind you can't get better.

Altariel also had a good idea when she suggested you write about it. It doesn't have to be a story, it can just be a few words about how you feel at the moment. It's a good way to vent frustration. But I guess everyone had different methods of "venting" and you just need to find what works best for you. (((((Raia))))) Take care of yourself. [Frown]

I just found out that one my ex-girlfriends dad hasn't been doing very well in the past few days. I'm not real sure what the problem is, but they may have taken him to the hospital this evening. I really like and respect this man, but after my two and a half year relationship with his daughter ended on less than a happy note, I just wouldn't be comfortable sending flowers or anything (he'd love them, she would shred them). So the best that i can do is ask for people to pray for Mr Rivron, whom emails back and forth with me behind his daughter's back...

If you don't mind throwing a few my way, I just found out my dog's ownership is in question. As I mentioned in this thread, Chet's coworker gave him to us after, Sammy says, someone left him tied up in a duffel bag in his front lawn.

Today, a man came into Chet's store wanting to talk to Sammy. He claims Sammy was watching Brain and now he wants his dog back.

Chet and I thought it was odd that someone would spend money to have the dog's dew claws removed and tail trimmed and then abandon him. But Brain was hungry, dirty, and had fleas when we got him. If the owner wasn't taking care of him, I can see why Sammy would give it away. I'm also worried that the original owner may have changed his mind a couple times and will only end up neglecting Brain.

Brain's a very needy dog. He hates it when Chet or I leave the room. He loves to curl up with us and be wherever we are. I'm worried that he wasn't loved before.

Obviously, I want to do what's best for Brain. If the problems are Sammy's fault and not the original owner's, I have no intention of keeping the man's dog. I just want to know Brain will be loved wherever he ends up.

The worst part is that Sammy's out today. Chet can't even try to get the problem straightened out until tomorrow. *sigh* It's going to be a long night.
 
Posted by Alcon (Member # 6645) on :
 
(((((Avidreader))))))

I'm confuzzled, why would Sammy claim someone had tied the dog up and left it in his yard?
 
Posted by AvidReader (Member # 6007) on :
 
That would be the part that blew my mind. Who would lie about something like that, especially if the owner would come looking for the dog?

I'm hoping there'll be a reasonable explanation when Chet gets both men in the same room. If not, I may be bailing Chet out on assault charges. He's never hit anyone before, but he might over this. He loves that dog, and he's really upset about it.
 
Posted by AvidReader (Member # 6007) on :
 
It just gets weirder. Chet talked to the original owner for a bit today. He claims he met Sammy at the club and asked if he could put the dog in Sammy's car. A few seconds later Sammy drove off with it - only to give it away a week later.

Who would have a puppy that isn't even housetrained at the club at night in the cold? This guy may just be an idiot, though. Sammy didn't show up for work today and didn't call. But why would Sammy steal a dog and give it away? He didn't charge us; he said he wanted a home for an abandoned dog.

This blows any of my theories out the airlock. I figured it was a guy whose kids weren't taking care of the dog, gave it away, and wanted it back to shut the kids up. Having the dog in a stranger's car at the club never crossed my mind.

Obviously, Chet has a few things to go over with the original owner on proper dog care. If Chet's sure he'll take better care of Brain this time, we'll give him back. [Cry] I'm gonna miss that little guy.

Edit to add: Now that I've had some time to think about it, Sammy probably didn't steal the dog. He was probably drunk, forgot the dog was in the backseat, and drove off. Why he didn't put up a flyer outside the club I don't know. He couldn't have tried too hard to find the guy. And he ducked out when he heard the guy was looking for him. Nice to know Chet's got an inconsiderate, lying chicken working for him.

Nope. He stole the dog from some guy fresh out of jail. I'm not sure if it was for the dog or for the guy's paperwork (birth cert, etc) he had with him. Very crazy.

Thank you guys.

It just really sucks when a friend starts treating you like you are the last person they would want to be with. Especially when before a couple of weeks ago we were so close. In the past couple of weeks she has called me zero times. When in the past few weeks she has had huge things happen. Things I would have thought she would tell me, but I guess she would rather go to other people now. A couple of other peopl have been doing this a little too which makes the situation worse.

I really need a hug. I got up the nerve to be the one to initiate contact with someone on that dating site I signed up for. I was hoping he'd want to talk, but prepared for a "no thanks."

I wasn't prepared for him not even bothering to respond at all. [Cry] I hate dating.

Posted by blacwolve (Member # 2972) on :
 
I know this isn't particullarly suited to this thread, but I'm uncomfortable enough about posting it as it is, I hate posting about my relationships, and I don't want the exposure that giving it a thread to itself would cause. For my friends who are reading this and are probably going to jump to the conclusion that Mike and I are on the verge of breaking up: we aren't. A certain level of conflict is going to be present in all long term relationships, ours is actually much less than many other couples I've seen.

I'm wondering how you confront your significant other with the fact that they've inadvertantly hurt you or are engaging in habits that hurt you without being highly neurotic (which I am) or fighting, but still letting them know that something's an issue for you. My BF is good about not doing things after I get mad at him for doing them, but I hate getting mad at him for doing stuff that he truly just doesn't see how it would hurt me. However, he assumes if it's not important enough for me to get angry about then it's probably not very important, so it seems like to get my point across I have to get angry even when it isn't very fair to him. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Please don't try to commiserate with me and tell me that he's a jerk. He's not. I love him very much, I plan to spend the rest of my life with him, he has thousands of good qualities that for some reason don't seem to come up very often on a hug thread.

Don't worry, nobody's gonna say that because it's simply not true. So your relationship isn't perfect. Whose is?! You seem to be aware of that yourself when you say: "A certain level of conflict is going to be present in all long term relationships, ours is actually much less than many other couples I've seen."

As for the problem you stated there, the worst thing you could do is shut up and keep it all inside. No matter how much you'd try, it will all burst out at one point, and it won't be pretty, trust me! I can't think of anybody who can accept a ton of criticism dropped onto him at once.

On the other hand you have to realize that telling him that he's hurting you right then, when you're angry, might - and usually does - lead to saying things you'll regret. While it's still best to tell it to him when it's happening, you should probably take a moment to calm down and to consciously realize that he's NOT trying to hurt you. Being able to joke about the problems can also help, but I'm aware that not everybody has that gift. I know I usually can't do it.

And here's an example from my personal experience: I'm quite used to talking to someone while doing something on the computer. Most of my close friends know this, and don't take it as rudeness when I continue to type and listen to them. They have found out numerous times that if I'm asked a question I register it, understand it, and will soon answer it. My ex-girlfriend knew this also, of course. But due to other problems in our relationship she started to feel like I was ignoring her. She didn't tell me though, and I never saw it... Too self-centered, I guess... Anyway, at one point she decided to let it all out. Well, no matter how much I tried to stay calm and take it all in, I couldn't. When somebody's telling you more than one thing wrong about you it's obvious that they kept it inside all that time. Then the question appears: "Why don't you trust me enough to tell it to me when it happens?" I told my girlfriend that I didn't mind being told this and that all the time, that I'm all in favor of communication. Heck, if I love her and want the relationship to work, I'll bend backwards to correct what's annoying her. But the longer you go in a no-communication relationship, the harder it is to accept criticism when it finally shows its head.

So, to sum this up, my advice is to talk to him, calmly, about what angries you. Be aware, of course, that the same thing can happen the other way around, and be ready to take his criticism as a constructive one also.

I know I'm not too good with words and all, but I hope I got the point across. [Hat]

((((blacwolve & Mike))))
 
Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
 
(((((Kara))))) I wish I knew what to tell you, but I don't have any experience in this... I wasn't planning on telling you that Mike is a jerk though, because I don't think that, and I know that you are very happy together. And I couldn't be happier for you.

But I agree with Corwin, that communication is the most important thing. You have to find some way to tell him that he's hurting you... trust me, he would rather know than not. Even if he doesn't understand why.
 
Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
 
Can I have a hug? I just had a huge fight with Naomi, one of my smoking roommates. She and Sarah (the other) apparently got another letter yesterday about the smoking. She just started yelling at me, saying "we had no idea you didn't want us smoking, now suddenly we get these letters, and you went behind our backs instead of talking to us, you could cause us to get kicked out, and you could have just said so" and so on and so forth.

Well, I'm sorry, but Ana and I have gone and asked them to stop several times. They completely ignored us, and the first letter they got that stated that they'd get fined 200 nis per cigarette. However, we didn't go to the management again; I'm not sure where this letter came from, because neither Ana nor I went to complain again.

When I told Naomi that we had asked them to stop several times, she said "Oh come on, Shani, we both know that's not true."

I cannot STAND when people falsely accuse me of lying. It really stings, more than just about anything else. I'm crying now, and hoping beyond hope that this move works out, and Ana and I get to leave sometime this week.

She's right, of course -- in the little fantasy world she's created, which she expects you to live in too. [Razz] I hope you can get out of that apartment soon! (((((Raia)))))

(((((blacwolve))))) You might try a letter -- either written or email. Letters have the benefit of being able to be edited repeatedly, so you can be sure you've phrased things correctly; being in black-and-white, so they can be referred to later; tending to be less emotional than in-person.

Good luck, and I'm sure you two will work through your issues to some sort of compromise. (Which will then be renegotiated every so often for the rest of your lives -- that's how long-term relationships work, neh? [Wink] )

Tell him that its serious, but that you didn't want to yell at him. He should be able to take it. I know I would much prefer to be told if I ever did anything that inadvertantly hurt Shani.

((((Shani)))) I talked to my mom about possibly visiting. The initial reaction was exactly what I'd expected... and more. Then again, my mom was just acting totally crazy tonight. I suspect more might be up than whats on the surface... *sigh* So I'm not giving up yet. Also, I think there were a few holes I can use, so I'm going to keep at it. My dad is another matter...

(((((Everyone else))))) Thanks for your concern. This morning, I was walking out of my room, and Naomi was in the kitchen... she said "good morning," so I said it back. Thirty seconds later she pounced on me "I just said good morning to you.. did you not hear me? Or are you ignoring me?" Honestly. I told her "yes, I heard you, and I said it back." Her response: "Oh." No apology, or anything.

I am so sick of her.

But on a brighter note...

I called the dorm office today (plus talk to Ana). They said that this week we can move into two separate rooms in building 18. Yay!! They verified... the roommates don't smoke, and I doubt they have random naked men in the apartment at 4:00 am (I don't remember if I mentioned that on Hatrack before). They probably don't impulsively accuse you of lying either. Hopefully sometime in the next day or two I'll be breaking my back hauling all my stuff up to the 18th or 19th apartments! [Big Grin]

*hugs Mormo tight* Once again (unfortunately) I understand completely... I don't know if you were around, 5-6 months ago, when I also lost a cousin... this one was only fourteen years old.

I'm so sorry. I'm afraid that nothing will make it better. Time will heal, to some extent, but... it's not something that can really be dealt with. But you have my utmost sympathy. I'm so so sorry. [Frown]

i would like a hug....
as stupid as it seems, i got a bad grade on a paper and it upset me so much that i was crying to my mother on the phone. The thing was, I had thought when i handed it in, that it was in fact one of the best papers I had writen this year... so to get it back with a B- was upsetting. I am also generally stressed now, and the next two weeks is going to be hellish with midterms. I also feel that writing desent papers is the only academic reason I got in to this kind of school anyway. I am a lot calmer now but I desided to go and talk to the profesor this wendsday instead of today.
I know this should be a kind of no big deal thing... but the fact that i thought it was particulerly good, and that I am stressed has blown it up.
 
Posted by Little_Doctor (Member # 6635) on :
 
(((Kyrie)))

At least you're not in my situation. I'm just about two months behind in school. I missed Midterms, Tests, entire chapters of material. Best part is, I have four regents exams(NY state exams that you have to pass in order to graduate) coming up in June. Five if you include the one i have to make up! I missed one in January. I'm in the process of writing aobut seven papers on some of the stuff I missed. I can't pass chemistry, because I'll never meet the lab requirement unless I stay after school almost everyday for the next month or so, and that won't work because I have other classes to catch up in also. they are loading all of this work on me, and it makes me feel like going comatose on their asses!!!!!AAAGGHHH!

(((((Corwin))))) Tough choice. Good luck!

((((((((((kyrie)))))))))) Ouch. I hate that! It's one thing when you work hard but don't think it's that good. But when you are sure it IS good, it's awful to be told it's not as good as you thought. Keep in mind that teachers are only human, and paper-grading is HIGHLY subjective (one of the reasons I'm very glad not to have to do much of it -- science homework/tests are far less subjective). Did the teacher write much in the way of explanatory comments?

I took a hot shower thinking the steam would help my cough. It didn't. But my mom came home, and I took some medicine and went back to bed. So after sleeping most of the afternoon, and eating some Jell-O, I'm feeling better. Not totally better though, I have zero energy. I hope I'm not still sick this weekend...I have prom!

I've had a really rough day or two, and there's just a lot of stress, and it keeps getting worse, rather than better. And on top of that, I slept a little over four hours last night, the night before a huge audition, which didn't help either. And now I'm crying, and could really just use a friendly well-wish.

I forgot to go to my lab tonight. I don't know how, it just didn't occur to me I had a lab. In fact, when I should have been in my lab I was, instead, watching Law and Order reruns and feeling bored.

That would be annoying, but not critical. However, we had our lab final today. CRITICAL. If we fail the lab we fail the class. Since I had about 75/100 points, and what I missed today is worth 25 points, it's all going to come down to whether my TA will let me take the exam late, and whether I had 75/100 or 76/100. I'm going to her office hours tomorrow to ask her, but I'd feel a lot more confident if I had a good excuse. Heck, I'd go for any excuse right now. So any well wishes and hugs would be greatly appreciated.

One of our kitties has to go in for surgery next week. [Frown] We found a lump on one of his legs this week and half the biopsies today were inconclusive. Given that he had a cancerous tumor removed 2 years ago (from the other leg), we're not taking any chances and are having it removed. Luckilly it's kind of a "free floating" - it doesn't seem to be connected to his muscle tissue, which will make it easier to remove. I just wish I could explain to him that a little bit of pain now is better than a lot of pain later. Poor little trooper. He's always so well-behaved especially in the car and at the vet's office - the vet always comments on how good he is. [Cry]

This is just not our week apparently. I haven't been feeling or sleeping well. My truck has started its summer misbehaving. Bo is getting *really* tired of going to the vet's office every other day (hopefully today will be the last of it). Which brings me to today. Slacker was on his way home from dropping Bo off at the vet (Bo was so upset yesterday that they had to reschedule - Bo, our mellow, sweet, unperturbable cat bit John, so the tech wasn't going to go anywhere near him) when he was rear ended. John seems to be ok, but it'll take a couple days before any problems show up (he has a bad back and this can't have helped anything). Not to mention he's got work tonight (we'll see if that happens). The car sounds like it will be ok, but will need quite a bit of work (bumper is toast, trunck is stuck shut so there's the trunk and possible quarter-panel issues to deal with). We have really good insurance (hopefully the woman that hit him does too since it was her fault and her insurance should be footing the bill), but this was our nice car (the newer, paid-off, great gas mileage, fun to drive one). My poor husband (who has been really down lately) just really didn't need this. [Cry]

My parents act lately as if nothing has happened, and as if nothing that I told them ever actually got through...

Oh well...

After 11 days I talked to my parents yesterday. Nothing much, just told them a little bit where I stand. What remains settled, however, is that I will not allow them to tell me what to do and when to do it. As long as they mind their own business this time, we're ok. Or at least close to ok.

I've also got to talk a little bit with my cousin ! [Smile] She said her fiance went to ask her parents' permission last week and everybody got emotional... I bet! [Big Grin] Maaan... As my brother said, he's not prepared for today's exam, and she's prepared for marriage?!

"Nothingman"

Once divided...nothing left to subtract...
Some words when spoken...can’t be taken back...
Walks on his own...with thoughts he can’t help thinking...
Future’s above...but in the past he’s slow and sinking...
Caught a bolt ’a lightnin’...cursed the day he let it go...

Nothingman... (2x)
Isn’t it something?
Nothingman...

She once believed...in every story he had to tell...
One day she stiffened...took the other side...
Empty stares...from each corner of a shared prison cell...
One just escapes...one’s left inside the well...
And he who forgets...will be destined to remember...oh...oh...oh...

Nothingman... (2x)
Isn’t it something?
Nothingman...

Oh, she don’t want him...
Oh, she won’t feed him...after he’s flown away...
Oh, into the sun...ah, into the sun...

Burn...burn...
Nothingman... (2x)
Isn’t it something?
Nothingman...
Nothingman... (2x)
Coulda’ been something...
Nothingman...
Oh...ohh...ohh...

Posted by Icarus (Member # 3162) on :
 
I thought about adding a follow-up to this thread, and the felt vaguely pathetic for still reading the blog of an ex-friend who clearly doesn't want anything to do with me anymore.

I read today that he was at Disney World with his family last weekend. He was freaking five minuted from me! He even specifically mentions going to my town! And he doesn't call me or anything. (Not to mention that he's so broke, but he can go to Disney World.)

Why do I hurt myself like this?

God play with me sometime. Today after work, i decided to go from le Louvre to Les jardins du Luxembourg before a diner with friends. ( The traject ). and i decide to go a minute in the St Séverin's church in St Michel. Just before, i heard a man in my back said "Spawn !" (an old nickname from school). It was a friend who works now near Paris. And the best is he live near me, at Levallois.

Then, i went to les jardins du luxembourg, i seated down a chair face to the sun with a beautiful blue sky, and i stay, quit. I felt an appeasement in me. The sun warmed up me. I feel good now.

As for needing a hug, aaaaaah! NOT A SINGLE PLACE on campus or off campus has a copy of the textbook I need for one of my classes. I have to read two chapters, and do some random homework for it by tomorrow, and I can't find the freaking thing anywhere! I went to two libraries, two bookstores, and the two classmates I know how to find. Basically, the only places around. Not a single place has it. Grrr!

(((((Hug thread regulars and irregulars))))) I'm going to go practice. Maybe that will calm me down a bit.
 
Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
 
Update:
Ugh... my day only got worse. I went to practice, and my voice kept cracking, so I decided I'm too stressed to sing, and set out to find Walmart, because there are certain necessary items that I need in my dorm room.

There's a Kroger on the way to Walmart, so I stopped to get some edamame (yum) and stuff to fry it in (canola oil, lemon, salt and pepper, in case anyone's wondering). I got that, and went back to my car. According to the directions my RA gave me, Walmart is just down the street from Kroger.

Well, either I'm really dumb, I'm blind, or someone stole it, but Walmart was definitely NOT down the street. Instead, I managed to get lost in rural Indiana (which anyone will tell you is not a particularly pleasant experience) for a little under half an hour. Finally, I found the highway again, and then Kroger (that was my hallelujah moment). I decided to stop again at Kroger and get a few of the things there... the ones, I could, anyway. I bought them, and went back outside to my car. Of course, by this point, it's drizzling.

I drove back to campus, and looked for student parking near my dorm. I made a very important discovery today, and that's that there's absolutely no freshman parking near my dorm. So I parked on the other side of campus (where I was to begin with, but it wasn't drizzling then), and took all my bags in hand, and walked back to my dorm in the rain. The bags were really heavy, and getting wet wasn't helping them. One tore, and my bottle of oil fell out and hit the pavement. Luckily, it didn't break, but it was CLOSE.

I finally made it back to my dorm, where the girls on my floor, upon hearing my sorry tale, made the situation aaaall better by saying "how could you miss Walmart? It's just down the STREET!"

[Wall Bash]

I think I may go fry myself some edamame. See if that cheers me up.
 
Posted by rivka (Member # 4859) on :
 
((((((((((Raia)))))))))) Fried edamame are yum! And Walmart is evil -- you're simply too pure of heart to see it. [Wink]
 
Posted by Eruve Nandiriel (Member # 5677) on :
 
I managed to calm down, and not panic over my calculus exam (always a good plan). The questions ended up being harder and more confusing than I thought, but stuff started to make more sense as I went along. I got my scores back....not good. With the scores I got, I should probably drop to the next lower class, but I'm not going to. Once I get going, I'll remember more stuff, and I'll just have to study hard and get help. I really don't want my math to hold me back with my engineering courses. I think it's all going to work out....eventually. [Smile]

Raia, it took me an hour and a half to find the Target that wasn't too far away. I kept going in circles and ending up back on campus. [Embarrassed] maybe I missed something, but are you going to school back in Indiana now?

I need some hugs... I've tried to make a relationship work against all odds and, well, it obviously didn't work. So I stopped it for good yesterday, when it became very clear that the girl wasn't going to change and would go on with the self-destructive life she's leading. I can't at the same time help her with infinite patience and be with her in a normal relationship, it's just impossible.

Haha...yeah, it is starting to look a little deserted. I have about 3 midterms and a final for each class. I think they're about 3 or 4 weeks apart. And no, I'm not in Australia. I wish I was though, it sounds like a cool place. [Smile]

I've been really feeling kind of lonely lately. I still haven't made many friends here (I know about three people that I actually hang out with), and it's starting to get to me. I also realised that I never really had very close friends. Maybe two that would have counted, but we've either lost touch or grown apart. I miss that closeness, that person that you can share all your thoughts and feelings with without feeling judged, and knowing that certain friend will be there for you no matter what. I should probably join some clubs or something to meet people (I'm shy...I'm not an outgoing person), but I just don't have the time. The clubs/groups/whatever usually meet when I have supplemental instruction (it's like a study group with a student teacher), and I really need to go to those because I'm failing my classes. I feel like I'm just falling apart at the seams lately. And I don't care about anything anymore. I know I should, but don't, and I don't even know why, and somehow I just feel...blank. Ok...so I know this probably has a lot to do with stress, lack of sleep, and the like. But even though I got a few good nights of sleep, I don't feel much better. [Frown]

*sigh* Sorry, I just needed to let that out.
 
Posted by blacwolve (Member # 2972) on :
 
((((Eruve)))) It gets better, really. If nothing else you learn ways of dealing with it. Keep in mind that any sort of close relationship takes a while to build. It doesn't happen overnight. I'm also really shy, and from what you say you're doing a lot better socially than I was at this point in my freshman year.

Academically: I'm not at all sure this will be any help at all, but I can offer. You're an engineering major, right? My boyfriend is a sophomore in engineering here at Purdue. He's probably the best student in his class and he's pretty good at explaining things. If you'd like I'm sure he'd be willing to help you out. I know that'd be sort of hard to do over such a long distance, but I thought I'd offer just in case you think it would be helpful.

I have an exam in 7 hours and I'm very close to completely freaking out, haha. It's the first exam in my college career that's essay based so it's making me a little tense.

Wow, I feel you on the friend issue. It's hard to find people that you can trust to be that close, but it's not impossible. Spending a lot more time with the people you already know is how you can figure out if they're the share-all-your-thoughts-and-feelings-with person. Usually networking (friends of your friends) is how I've made the most friends after I left home to go to college. It can happen on a random day, too. Also talking to random classmates about what went on in class is helpful. For instance, "Don't you think our professor's a jerk?".. and if they agree, then you've made a new friend! Haha.

Good luck with the meeting more people and on your exams!

[Big Grin] I know I can do better though. I think if I really work at it, and can get a B on the next one. [Smile] That's my goal. I know I can do it, but I really have to work at it.

[Cry] I need a hug now. I just got rejected for the Liberal Arts Student Council, which I was really excited about joining. They had said previously that it was really hard to not get in as long as you went to the interview and weren't completely awful, so I sort of feel like crap since I didn't. Especially since from my point of view it was the best I'd ever done in an interview. On top of that I've had a really crappy night, mostly because I had to go to the interview and it was at a horrible time and forced me to wear high heels which are hard to walk around campus in when it's not storming. And I have a test tomorrow that I'm not ready for at all that's worth a quarter of our grade.

I'll repost what I posted in my LJ.

quote:
Right now I'm very angry and sad.
One month ago two friends of mine told me they were getting married. I had no idea they were in love, I was really happy for them. I blocked my week-end (it was my birthday, but I really cared for them), began to prepare them a surprise, told everyone I know about it because that made me so happy...
And the girl called me tonight to tell me it was a joke.
They had prepared this story to see if I would "walk in". She told me they had a good laugh when they saw it was the case. And didn't apologize.
I was so unprepared to hear that on phone that I said nearly nothing.
But I wrote them that letter.

I didn't want to play the moral on phone, so I didn't say anything. But I think this story deserves an explanation.
When I found the announce of your wedding in my mailbox, back from Australia, I thought, for one second, that it was a joke. Then I thought you would never do that to me, so I rejoiced for you. Sincerely. And even more when I had you on phone, G (this is the girl), because you sounded so happy it made me happy for you.
So I blocked my week-end (it was my birthday...), I began to prepare a surprise for your wedding party, to wonder what I could find as a wedding present. I talked about you two to a lot of people, because it heated my heart to know you were both happy. I even talked about it to F (this is a friend of mine who lost her father), because she was really down and I thought it would make her feel better. By the way, it was the case. F is that way.
I'm sure you're already thinking it's all my fault, I'm too naïve, I shouldn't have believed you... From my point of view, the only mistake I made is to trust two people who didn't deserve it. I won't do it twice.

Comments? I meant to explain how I felt without sounding too angry, do you think it sounds that way?

I take hugs too... *sigh*
 
Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
 
(((((Anna))))) That's really cruel. [Frown] I can't understand why someone would think that was funny. Your letter sounds very level-headed and thought out. Go ahead and send it, so they understand. As you may remember from my LJ, I went through something similar... though on a very different note... a few weeks ago. So I can completely relate. *hugs again*

The girl told me that they had this idea from a TV show where a girl is asked to make everyone around her believe that she's going to marry some guy, and if everyone trusts her and she's going at the altar and everything they give her a lot of money. I couldn't believe it when I heard it. I guess the TV cameras don't stay too long after she tolds everyone she lied them for money... If one of my sisters did something like that I wouldn't want to hear about her for a loooooong time.

Anna, that is exactly the sort of TV show that I hate! Part of why I watch so much less TV than I used to is the increase in the number of "reality shows" like that. Not that such shows are very "real" -- as you said, they don't look at the real-life consequences afterwards.

I think it was a despicable thing to do on TV or off. [Razz] (((((Anna))))) Ask your "friend" if she knows the story of the little boy who cried wolf.

Hi y'all. So I'm back from my latest self-imposed vacation. (Yeah, yeah, I know. "You left?" "Who are you again?" [Razz] ) I have made a new resolution to play nice.

No matter how asinine the other kids are.

We'll see how I do. It may not look like it, but I actually have refrained from posting a couple of times because I had nothing nice to say. If I make a conscious effort, I find I can come up with a classy way to answer a provocation, but I don't always make that effort. Posts by people like CT put me to absolute shame.

I'm also making a resolution not to feed trolls. That has always been a big problem of mine. The problem is that I like people to *know* what I'm doing. I want trolls to *know* that they are trolls, and to know that I *know* that they are trolls.


(I think my problem is that I instinctively feel that classless people don't deserve to be treated with class. How can that be right?! They troll all over other people, and don't get flamed out?! Truly, there is no justice. Yeah yeah, I know. They crave attention, and so not giving it to them is more punishment that flaming them. But that theory is so hard for me to put into practice.)

Maybe when I feel like feeding a troll I'll come here and say "Tralalalalalala! Look at me! Not feeding the troll!!!!!! Tralalalalalala!" [Big Grin]

Anyway, I may not succeed, but I'm going to try harder to be the change I'd like to see.

The past week+ has been extremely difficult for me. The girls are struggling in school, particularly Banana, and I don't feel that they [EDIT: the school] are being particularly supportive. Perhaps they feel the same way about us. I don't know.

I come home, I deal with dinner, I deal with homework (which typically takes at least an hour and a half), and then I'm too depressed to deal with anything else. I can't get any of my schoolwork done at home because I'm too spiritually drained. I can't clean around the house, so it's turning into a sty. I'm behind on dishes, so I've taken to getting take-out or quick meals instead of cooking real meals. The same pattern I was in a couple of years ago when Mango was having a really bad time.

I am not happy.

All I have energy for once the kids go to bed is forumming and writing. Thank God I've at least been productive in my writing, or I'd feel utterly worthless. If I'm not occupied reading or writing, I find myself tending to be extremely emotional. I feel constantly on the verge of tears.

School is going wonderfully for the girls. They finally found a way to finagle ESE services for Banana, so we no longer have 2+ hours of homework a night to do. We are being able to spend quality time doing other things now, like say, reading. They are much happier in school, and we are all much happier at home.

(I see some lingering scars from the road we had to travel, though. A lot of times I like to give the girls silly answers when they ask me silly questions. The other day we went to the Magic Kingdom, and Banana asked me if we were going to ride rides, so I told her we were not, we were going to find a table and do homework. She replied, laughingly, "No! I hate homework!" From whence this dislike of schoolwork? :-| )

Work is extremely stressful for me so far this year. I am teaching a section of a course that is new to me called Senior Project. The kids spend all year writing what amounts to a thesis, and they have tons and tons of assignments along the way. I simply cannot keep up with the grading load. In order to stay just a little behind, I have sacrificed all of my other classes. I am constantly stressed by how far behind I am. I hope it will get better in the second semester.

Last night I called in a personal day for today because Jeniwren is in town and a bunch of Hatrackers are going to Islands of Adventure. I haven't been to either Universal Studios park since before we got the girls, and I was looking forward to going. Since I didn't have the stress of work hanging over me, I went out and bought my secret santa/snowflake stuff. When I came home, Cor told me that Mango was now feeling sick to her stomach. So here I am spending the day at home caring for her instead of out having fun. [Frown] *sigh*

Wow, I haven't posted in a long time. I'm kinda surprised I'm still getting hugs. It's a ver nice surprise, though. [Smile]

My calculus grades got progressively worse after the first exam. I had two D's and an F. I just had another exam last week, and I needed a mid-C on this one and the final in order to pass the class. I studied a lot, and the exam went pretty well, and I actually finished a few minutes early. I just heard from my professor ("unofficially") that I got a B! I was so happy, I almost cried right there. [Smile] I still have to do well on the final if I'm going to pass, though.

Tonight I had another chem exam. I wasn't doing too well in that either: an F and a C. I didn't prepare as well as I should have, and I ended up cramming. I didn't think the exam went well at all, and I thought I had failed. I just checked the answer key online, and I got an 88!

My grades are turning around, and things are starting to go much better for me. I can barely contain my excitement!!!

I usually don't come to Hatrack for to beg for parentheses. In fact, I rarely ask anyone for support or hugs. I go to support group meetings to GIVE support, not to solicit it.

But you know, guys, I could really use a hug about now.

I feel swept out to sea, clinging to nothing but a raft of troubles. Like the mythical Sisyphus, I feel that despite my hardest efforts, I am not making progress in overcoming my challenges. As the people around me, people that I love, are faced with difficulties, it falls to me to be strong, to overcome, to rise to the occasion, and to help and support. And you know what? I do. I really do. But it is hard, and I fear that all my best efforts aren't going to be enough.

Could you spare a Shvester down on her luck a hug? It would be much appreciated.

I could rather use a few hugs right now. There's three weeks left in the semester and I have 4 programs that need to be written (one in assembly, 2 in C++ using OpenGL to implement 3d->2d transformations and ray tracing's basic alogrithms -- as in... the one's OpenGL's supposed to do for you, and one thats basically a virtual circuit design language/machine language), a paper worth 35% of my grade where I have to design a mission to another planet (I've choosen Mars, the mission looking at Martian ground ice) and two papers due in my english course. The mars paper is due wednesday, as is the assembly program. The graphics program is due tuesday, as is a revision of one of my english papers. Each of those programs could easily take 12 -24 hours of straight productive work to complete. I have no idea where I'm going to find that time... short of skipping all my classes monday and working straight through sunday and sunday night (even then...). I'm so stressed out its not even funny. I've been working on all this stuff pretty much every free moment I have for the past week, but I still haven't even made a dent. And I've only got like 3 or 4 days left on some of them.

Add to this the fact that I got hit by a huge burst of loneliness and homesickness tonight (probably due to the stress) and yeah... I could really use a hug [Frown]
 
Posted by Icarus (Member # 3162) on :

When I have all my deadlines come together like that, I remind myself that in a week (or whatever) it will all be over, and, for better or worse, the stress will be lifted. :-\ Of course, when it gets really insane like that (which it will for me soon) I also leave Hatrack until it's all over.

I could use some hugs.

It's stupid, but today is my boyfriend's birthday (Started about an hour ago) and it's a big deal he's getting all of these presents from mutual friends who didn't even bother to call when I turned 21 this summer. And it's really making me realize how much all of my friends here are really his friends, and how alone I really am here.

So I'm going to be putting on a happy face all day, because I want him to have a great birthday; but if I could have a couple of hugs to get me through the day, it would be great.

Thanks

You know... I could use some hugs too.

It is 1:23 in the morning. I am already resigned to pulling an all-nighter, because I still have a paper and a French poem to write before 9:00 am tomorrow. But I have spent the past five or six hours comforting friends of mine who have severely needed it... and I'm completely drained. My room has had one person after another, and of course, I'm really glad to have helped them, but it's been a really emotionally heavy day, and I don't know how much more I can handle. Especially since I got four and a half hours of sleep (or less) last night, and I'm not getting any at all tonight.

But both were sobbing. B for an hour and a half without stopping. [Frown] (P.S.

The last fish in one of our aquariums is dying; it likely won't make it through tomorrow. I'm not specifically attached to this or any other fish, and this fish has had an absurdly long life for a tropical fish. We've had it for close to six years. But it upsets me to see it struggling to swim. I'm so fixated/obsessed with death that I see it as a reminder of my own mortality. The idea of realizing that the end is near is devastating to me.

Of course it probably doesn't help that I'm running on too little sleep and too much stress (grades are due January 2) and that it's New Year's.

As well as other issues that have been plaguing me recently, I also just found out that my music scholarship for next semester is at stake... I haven't completed my voice jury yet, because I had lost my voice by the end of last semester, and was physically UNABLE to perform it, so I currently have an incomplete grade in voice. I'm making it up sometime in the next two weeks, which is perfectly within the school code guidelines, but I just got a letter that said that I haven't met the requirements and that they are suspending my scholarship for the spring semester.

I can't afford to go to school here without a scholarship... and it seems very unfair to me, considering this is beyond my control... I'm going to talk to my teacher about it tomorrow, and see if she's worried. Hopefully, once I perform my jury and fill in the grade, they'll re-issue my scholarship, but I can't help being really paranoid that I might not be around anymore in a couple of weeks. [Frown]

I know I've been more of a lurker than poster lately, but I could use some Hatrack hugs.

My job is sucking. I am under a lot of stress from time constraints and scheduling and equipment that doesn't work. My mother's health has really gone downhill in the last year. She's had to walk with a cane or walker (until a recent fall that left her in a wheelchair, hopefully only temporarilly). She's losing her hair and is buying a wig this week. It's really frightening watching your mom fall apart, especially when she's too young (54) for this kind of thing. My husband and I made some bad choices a couple weeks ago, that while somewhat damaging to our relationship, has actually made us more dedicated to each other. We are also grappling with the decision to start a family. We've been talking about it for a while now, and we've been thinking for the last month or so that the time is actually right. I'm terribly excited but also terrified about the idea of becoming a mother. I've started going off my meds in anticipation of going off my birth control and the whole experience is really overwhelming to think about. I know all these things will all be ok, but it's all a little scary and overwhelming right now.

Ok, I could use one again... (this just isn't my week)...

One of my roommates is mad at me. Granted, this doesn't seem like such a big deal, but I didn't do anything wrong, but, since she holds grudges like NO OTHER, I know this is going to last a really long time. I still haven't forgotten the two month period last year when she thought I was involved with her boyfriend, and didn't talk to me at all (though she would yell at him quite a bit for it...)

I really love her to death, and for the greater part of last year we were great friends. But now she's mad at me again, and I know I have another crazylong time of open hostility to look forward to... and on top of the rest of my life falling to pieces around me (all in the past week and a half... imagine that), I'm not altogether thrilled.

Basically, I'm in a horrible bitchy mood and I just need some love. [Frown]

Gah! I really am getting sucked into Hatrack if I'm posting in the hug thread... ; )

!((((( * )))))! *insert arrow here, thanks rivka* that's my big bear-type hug to anyone who needs one, whenever they need it.

((( Temposs ))) because I know how crummy family back stories/drama can be when you're planning something big.

(((((You guys))))) Thanks. [Smile]

Things just go up and down, y'know? Right now they're kind of down, but I think they're starting to head up again soon...

A friend of mine has just asked another girl out. While I'm not interested in him as anything more than friends, and I'm trying to be happy for him, I can't help but feel a little bit sad.
I was planning on asking him to the Sadie's dance, but I don't know how that'd go over.

Without delving into personal matters right now, I'll just say that I feel worse at this moment than I can remember feeling in years. Hugs would be welcome and appreciated.

I'm cancer free, so yay on that note, but as soon as my 9 month treatment finished, the family has now begun dealing with my brother who is denying that he is schizophrenic, which is pulling thisfamily apart.

My mom's car got reposessed yesterday and I'm hoping I don't have to move in with my dad on a permanent basis and switch schools. It's hard making up excuses to friends why I need rides to and from school all week. (I'm fairly anti-social even though I'm on a ton of sports teams)

I could use some moral support right now

:edit: - things just took a turn for the worse. It's affecting my grades, I had to miss school today. *hoping to get through tomorow so I can have a better week next week* I don't want to have to make excuses to my teachers

could use hug ...
