Kind of making my way into a panic attack right now. Calming suggestions? Music? breathing? I can't get out of a cycle of negative thoughts, even though I know that I'm over reacting about my current situation.

I was chatting with a prof today, and he called me a kindred spirit. I feel like a giddy school kid. Also trying to write a paper which is due tomorrow, and I'm kind of freaking out. It's a short easy assignment on a topic I enjoy and I have a lot of ideas floating around, but I just don't want to form sentences Read more

One of my besties is far far away doing volunteer work that she really loves. She is even thinking about making a career out of what she's been doing and staying far far away forevers :( I'm really sad, but really happy for her, and also envious of how much she loves where she is and what she's doing.

If any of you who suggested songs for my courtly love assignment on Saturday's OT are around GT, I just want to say thanks! Not only do I have a bunch of ideas for it now, but listening to all of these love themed songs is giving me the feels.

I've been looking at old,old, old pictures of me and my friends (at age 13) all night to distract myself from other troubling thoughts. It's been fun, but I have two thoughts: Read more

This is pretty dumb, but it made me laugh after a pretty lame day at work and school, so maybe it'll make someone else laugh. :)

I just got back from an OKC meetup for coffee, and my suspicions have been confirmed: I have zero capacity for interaction with other human beings. Most people find that endearing, right? right?

Geez, my boss(ish) keeps sending me e-mails about things I'm doing wrong, because she assumes I know these things! She probably thinks that I'm really dense, but how the heck am I supposed to know things that were never explained to me? So frustrating. This is too much work to be getting paid minimum wage.

A relative of mine shared a picture on facebook from an anti-choice group of a supposedly 12 week-old fetus. I think I remember reading/hearing that anti-choice groups often use photos that are photoshopped or are inaccurately labeled. I'm just wondering if anyone could tell me if this one is real? I'll try to post it Read more
