-Being awake at 4:30 because I've had an IUD put in and I'm in a lot of pain. :'(
-Regretting stuff.
-Feeling horrible and worthless because my father left from the waiting room *when I was having it inserted* go to a village event, leaving me stranded and without a way of getting back home and without a coat or a wallet or a train ticket or drugs and in agony. He didn't even bother to pick up his phone, just sending me a text telling me to "wait somewhere", and I was stranded there for an hour before my gynecologist closed the practice to drive me home. When he finally called two hours later to see where I was, he didn't bother to ask how it had gone or how I was doing. I should add that it was traumatic enough because I'd been forced to do this and didn't want an IUD.
-Crying.
-Being all alone.

Thanks Delling. ;]

(For the record, so there's no confusion, I hope we all realize that I'm not picking on Cray, but those pricky jerks at his wiki. :yes:)

I hate people who have to take the fun out stuff for others in an obsession to be "right."

Cray, what's the URL for your wiki again?

(Also if you've got banning power...or the ability to take away editing rights...y'know...just a thought....m ::))

-Waking up from a nap.
-Still feeling worthless, courtesy of my father who has diplomatically decided not to apologise because "These things take time" SERIOUSLY?!
-Snuggling with cat
-Being glad my presentation for my paper went so well. :) The presentation counted as 1/3 of the final grade and I got a perfect grade on the paper and I got an almost perfect grade on the presentation, so my overall grade is still perfect. :P

And Haids, I think the post was awesome. XD I also don't think anyone ever thought you would be mean to anyone to their face so I'm sure everyone knew you were talking about the mindless idiots and trolls that happen to be on the intarwebz everywhere. :)

-Admitting that I often troll Yahoo Answers because confusing stupid people entertains me. XD

Glad your presentation went well despite all this :) What did you have to talk/write about?

I also agree with Hailey. So much stupid and hateful people who think they can get away with it because they are behind a computer screen.

-About to go the store
- :furious: at the economy. I'm busting my rear end day in and day out to find a job and NOTHING is panning out.

-being bored
-being flaked on by yet another friend who was supposed to be lending me the extended Lord of the Rings trilogy when she came to hang today...
-watching TV.
-playing games on Facebook and Kongregate

My wiki is http://highfantasy.wikia.com
I don't really want to ban (I think he might sort of "get it" now.... maybe...) because some of what he's done has been helpful and because.... uhm, it's almost 1,400 pages and I've only gotten the occasional anonymous contribution before this. :P

Glad your presentation went well despite all this :) What did you have to talk/write about?
Fortunately, I'll be out of here in six months and then I don't really intend to keep in very close touch. :P And I'll be with someone who actually likes me and likes being around me and would never do anything to hurt me. :)

I had to defend my dissertation (17'000 words), which was on political caricatures and propaganda in Germany between 1871 and 1919. :) I made a very good impression by insisting on answering and discussing their last two questions, even though they're only allowed to ask ten minutes' worth of questions and that time was up, because I was having fun. XD They only deducted points because I seemed a bit out of it at first, but that was because of the drugs so I don't think I could have done anything about that. :(

-Snuggling with cat
-Waiting for Delling to get back. :P
-Getting high because I barely slept at all because of pain and then had a really bad and strange dream about breaking up with my boyfriend. :(

-being back
-wondering where Deloria is
-being happy that she seems much happier today
-wondering why MOLLIE is running so slowly :-X (but then maybe it isn't??)

They only deducted points because I seemed a bit out of it at first, but that was because of the drugs so I don't think I could have done anything about that. :(

See, this is the sort of thing that shouldn't happen. ::) In point of fact, I've had to sit through the edu-psych courses that explain that you are supposed to respect your students as individuals and be understanding about their individual circumstances. Now, I know this is hard: I have taught--it can be challenging just learning everyone's name!! But, the thing is that as a society, we have a solution for this: stereotypes and assumptions. These things exist for a reason... and it's not that they're right. It's that they simplify things. So, you start from there and then as you get to know the student and develop an interpersonal intuition (through years of being a teacher), you adjust to the individual student.

So, really, they should have understood that 1) you might be in extreme pain during your presentation and 2) you would consequently be somewhat drugged to mitigate (1). The logical conclusion of these two things is that they have to meet you at the level of function you can provide at that time: below a certain threshhold, they would tell you to come back on a different day. Next, they'd have to relax time constraints somewhat... the ability of a person to stick to a strict time table for the talk is necessarily impeded by the need to stop and wail or cognitive drag due to drugs. The question is ultimately how well and how long you hold your composure and otherwise meet the requirements of the presentation.

People are people first. That means they are complicated. Reality outside of academia has to accept this just as much as reality inside academia.

I hope you realize that your worth is not in any way determined by your parents. That being said, knowing something intellectually is not the same as believing it. :hug:

- Watching ClassicLetsPlay' "Quest For Glory Epic" (the person is doing a Paladin run, and is actually where I got Marcus' name from!) on youtube

- Is wondering if Deloria and Delling are dating, or just really close friends, with darthkiwi being Deloria's boyfriend instead.

- Has the music from the opening of Trail By Fire stuck in her head currently. Argh! Play some music from 1, please, that's what I'm writing!
