i properly apologized to a friend for something i said that hurt her. i spent a few weeks in denial and my pride got in the way of doing anything about our sudden non-friendship, and i'd take all these things she did to be signs that she wasn't a good friend anyway, wasn't worth the time, &c &c

i'm really happy that i sat down and talked to her today. it's never good to be too proud when dealing with people you care about.

Prof got back to me that he won't be able to be my mentor for summer research since he's having fun this summer. At least I have a back-up plan. Hopefully the applications come out soon, but it looks like I'll be picking up a 9-5 sort of job over the summer doing IT for my university. Still pretty cool, but I think I would have preferred summer research. Career center agrees that it would look nicer on the resume too. Oh well. It's not even that bad of a thing. Mostly just like what I want to do vs what I want to do more. Seems that creative writing students looking into summer research are mostly SOL regarding summer research.

i've lost weight recently i think from not eating enough. i don't do it on purpose i love food and i eat whatever i want but most days of the week if i wake up late it means no breakfast and probably no lunch bc i won't be able to make anything. i'll take some fruit but that's not enough... i know it's not healthy and i do try to make an effort to eat more but at the same time i don't mind it bc skinny :/ not eating is so convenient i hate it

and pretty frequently when i'm eating a meal i'll eat a little and start to feel nauseous even though i'm still hungry it's the worst

this is going to sound so stupid

so the past couple weeks i've been seriously considering returning to the law school route, which i had written off a few years ago when i switched to another area of work. today i just decided to buck up and do it, dropped $700 on an LSAT prep course and paid the $170 to register for the february LSAT. i was actually feeling surprisingly relieved, like i finally had direction in life. not scared at all, just excited.

a month or two ago a bunch of friends and i bought tickets to see my favorite dj in february. i've been looking forward to this concert and talking to my friends about it pretty much every day. just checked the dates--it's the night before the LSAT. all of the sudden all this fear and apprehension came swooping in side of me and i sat there feeling like crap for a little while, thinking of how scary the next few years are going to be. what if i'm not good at law school? what if i don't like practicing law?

even typing this is making me feel stupid as fuck, but it's just so dumb how shitty it makes me feel that i'll be missing this concert. i feel like it's a sign from the heavens or something, like a symbol of the sacrifices i'll have to make moving forward lol.

anyway, i'm bummed.

alright. consider the following information:

a girl who i'm attracted to asked me to be her flatmate. her current flatmate is leaving and she needs find someone else.

is this situation advisable? I'm tempted to do it because it would be more convenient than finding a new flat and also she's really cool :woop:

extra information/conjecture/questions under spoiler
Spoiler:
- Neither of us has been super flirty or anything. Though she has said some things that could be construed as suggestive.
- She knows that I need to find a flat somewhere. At the same time, there are lots of other people she could have asked.
- It's not like i'd need to ask her out. and right now I wouldn't mind if it went either way because i'd like to get to know her better regardless.
- we aren't super close right now, so i'm a bit confused why she asked me. (unless she wants to get to know me better. living with someone seems a bit of a drastic step.)
- if she is after me, why would she ask me to room with her when she doesn't know how it will turn out?
- she knows that my former girlfriend and I recently broke up.

The odds of moving in with a new person + simultaneously entering into a relationship (of some sort) with them and having things remain good until the lease ends are like impossibly low

yeah not trying to do anything like that. anyway if it happens I wouldn't move in until January so I would know situation a little better.

EDIT: and if it seems like she's interested in me, i'd tell her it's not a good idea to live together.

fuck it is so hard to study for finals when a) mentally i may as well not even be in this half of the country, i've been mentally back home ever since thanksgiving and b) i feel like i know enough that i could probably get As without studying much (this may or not be true but i really shouldn't risk it)

on a more positive note i can't wait to go home in a few days and see my favorite person in the whole world and spend a month with her (smiling)

i got my rewritten thesis back today (previously told my first one was the worst in the class and i didn't write on a senior level). i worked my ass off to make this a kickass thesis and i was super proud of it, i felt like i made something really strong and well written. well, apparently not. professor gave a me a D on it, a whole 3 FUCKING more points than my first thesis.

fuck school, so over this bullshit.

Been feeling melancholic and production week of the school newspaper I edit has not helped. You want to put out good content but sometimes you just look at your page and think good enough, no one's going to read this anyway.

I've been too anxious of high school judgement (or even comments that I just don't want to hear) to try and dress myself well in the morning and those bad feels reverb throughout my day I think.

@chadnik first draft had all of like a sentence of feedback and when asked my professor gave me nothing constructive or helpful.

i'm just mad because i had no direction of what he wanted, considering he gave us no real constraints or guidelines as to what we should be striving for. very bitter at this whole semester of class right now.

Some very good comics by Jack Teagle about knowing yourself. I needed to see this today so probably someone else out there does too.

I've been feeling pretty listless recently, with my last semester winding down. Also realized that with most of my friends already graduating, I need to make more friends who aren't from class or my fraternity. At least I'll have time to go out and do new things and meet new people now. Any suggestions for semi-social hobbies to pick up?

A long time family friend from karate just got out of surgery last weekend for a benign tumor in his brain. We just found out today that the tumor was actually malignant and he's at stage 3 brain cancer. He just got married, got a home and had a new baby recently and has two other kids... :/

I'll probably be taking a break from internet fashion and care-tags next semester, in part because my workload will be increasing significantly. Also in part because I'm trying to cut down on the internet in general and realized I'm not really happy when I go on forums. I'll probably still be around to participate in care-shares and occasional waywts and the like.

First semester of college was a weird, beautiful, emotional ride. I was in crisis for the first half or so freaking out that I didn't really connect with people, threw myself into a relationship that I really shouldn't have been in as a crutch for my own insecurities and did a lot of stupid shit. The nursing curriculum was pretty intensive but I think I'm coming out with all As and a B+. Second half of the semester I definitely found my groove and met people who I want in my life on a long-term scale. Really started to feel like I knew people. Switching rooms 2nd semester because my roommate and I are completely different people and neither of us really know how we got placed together. Going to seek counseling/therapy for possible depression next semester, wait list was a month and a half for 1st semester so I chose not to. Anyway highlights + such:

• Frequenting the New England aquarium with a membership (thanks Dad), going in just to do homework, to de-stress, to look at eels. (If any CTers ever want to go I can get 3 people in for free)
• Finding a fantastic soup kitchen with a great staff to volunteer at which I'm trying to turn into a weekly thing
•Taking psilocybin mushrooms several times
• Crashing a gingerbread-making contest spontaneously and hanging out and eating free candy
• Participating in the NEU undie run which means getting hammered and running a 5k on parents weekend, storming proctor stations and generally being loud and drunk and unclothed
• Seeing Chrome Sparks in concert, seeing Portugal the man in concert
• Going to the buddhist group that meets weekly, great group of people
• threesome with a fwb and a good friend and having it not be weird at all after ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
• discovering the music and art dorms where kids have regular jam sessions and are into pop punk and brand new and all that cool stuff
• harvard parties
• going vegetarian for moral reasons, 2 months strong

goals for winter break:
learn to crochet // read moksha, little failure, the road, few others // spend more time with my mom // take advantage of a fully stocked kitchen

hope everyone has a fantastic christmas/non-denominational holiday season/etc!!

not sure how appropriate this is as i just signed up, but none of my friends or family understand. i just landed a years apprenticeship at one of the old prestigious English goodyear shoemakers, and i'm actually so happy. it was damn hard to get as well. withholding name as i'm brand new :cool:

always wanted to learn a trade, and a bunch of people cut me off when i said i wanted to make shoes and not go to university. nothing of value was lost boys. (smiling)
