All the advice is really good here. Be kind to yourself. Work on one thing at a time. If you have a list of a thousand things, it becomes too overwhelming. So think of Sophia in Golden Girls going to the store to get a peach. That's all you have to do for a while. Go to the store and get a peach every day. Also I have… » 1/30/15 7:37am Friday 7:37am

Sadly, no one who has ever owed me an apology has ever given me one. You can't fix your dad. Honestly, even though we get along okay, I'm much happier having minimal contact with most of my family, and that is the main reason we get along okay. Years have gone by and I get no drama anymore; they don't try to guilt me… » 1/28/15 8:28pm Wednesday 8:28pm

Yeah, it's not you, it's your job. Even though you are pursuing other interests, an unsuitable job can suck energy from you. Tell people you are looking, like all the people, and something better will present itself. You're too young to waste time a job that doesn't challenge you. » 1/28/15 8:09pm Wednesday 8:09pm

Can you list your citations where she advocates any of this "Gaming if filled with misogyny and damsel in distress tropes and they must be abolished.

You need to identify what are the specific barriers to cleanliness. More often than not, for all of us, it's too much… » 1/25/15 5:00pm 1/25/15 5:00pm

D.H. Lawrence's Women In Love. It was awful. It was the first time I noticed how unrealistic and two dimensional women in literature are depicted. But it was not the last time.
Also, Christine by Stephen King. That was the first book I ever picked up and just did not finish. Other books were bad and boring and I… » 1/21/15 5:40pm 1/21/15 5:40pm

This was so beautiful and unexpected. I would have assumed being able to be legally married would make you feel sentimental and happy that your relationship is legally recognized, but it's not that at all, is it? It's not sentimental at all. It's not flowers and cards and anniversaries with cake and cocktails. It's a… » 1/19/15 8:12pm 1/19/15 8:12pm

Yeah, I'm betting he was an uber-stalker she was better rid of as quickly as possible. She goes on a few dates with him and when she says she's sick, he shows up at the hospital? That's fucking crazy. I don't visit co-workers who I've worked with for years at the hospital. » 1/19/15 7:18pm 1/19/15 7:18pm

the thing is, he just told you why servers hate you, but you keep saying it's not a problem. Because it's not. For you. If you have seating requirements, it would be better to call ahead and work that out prior to arriving at the restaurant. » 1/19/15 6:39pm 1/19/15 6:39pm
