  1. most of my classes are fine but theres one (1) where

    1. the teacher won't grade the short answers to any of our tests, so we have to explain and re-explain to our parents why our grades look like shit
    2. the teacher doesn't answer emails until the day before class, which results in such classics situations as 'cool i now have 24 hours to study for the entire exam, because you didn't give me the class recording or the reading, even though i emailed you about it a week earlier and sent you three follow up emails about it'
    3. the teacher likes to test us on things we have not even seen yet. and then, in the next class. Teach Us What We Needed To Know A Week Ago.

    in conclusion: not the worst class ive been in. but also wtf

      new things to add (i apologize for complaining but i just. cant fathom this class):

      1.  oh boy, extra credit questions!!! they're for 0.01 points
      2.  why do the answer choices go like:
        a. F
        b. W
        c. I
        d. K
        like did she shuffle them up just to fuck with us???? whats going ON
  2. i fucking finished. my entire nhd website. in the span of those last couple weeks and tonight its done and all in all: i still love my topic, i'd love to do this again WITH MORE TIME, but i never want to hear another documentary in finnish again

    4. justaddbooks

      justaddbooks

      I did mine on the Chicago Handgun Freeze! It was a really interesting topic, but there wasn't a lot of sources and things so my thesis was scattered and my project could have been a lot better. What topic did you do?

  3. i know i've barely been on here but lemme just say? i had a very sweet old lady all me a 'kind young man' on a day i was feeling like i couldnt physically get to the level of masculine i wanted to and uh w o w that felt good?? i mean, obviously i cried happy tears within the next 5 seconds, which wasn't really the look i was going for kjgfbkjfg

  4. i've got an exam today so i probs wont be able to reply to rp stuff ;/
    but on another mood have y'all ever considered just Crunching into a raw egg?? bc i want to. they're like uhhhhh hard gushers but Protein

      i r e a l l y wish cicada was letting me like things but holy shit thanks y'all!!!! im??? v e r y hyped. very gay. its a solid mood!!

  6. going to group physical therapy is Wild bc theres the views of "im masculine so i DONT SHOW WEAKNESS and NEVER STOP" vs. "im masculine so i DONT SHOW WEAKNESS but i DO GIVE MYSELF BREAKS IN ORDER TO NOT SHOW WEAKNESS" vs. my personal view, "im masculine but AFFIRMED ENOUGH IN THAT TO SHOW WEAKNESS BECAUSE THIS FUCKING HURTS"

  7. good news: i have my classes Under Control, Locked Up And Contained

    good yet crazy news: time to sift through 26 notifications

  8. yeah i gotta take a hiatus or something, the new classes i signed up for are objectively kicking my ass. i'll see y'all sometime soon!

  9. i genuinely thought i would be able to walk up to this rad-looking punk girl and just say the common and simple phrase, 'hey, I like your hair.' no polysyllabic words, no change of a weird inflection of tone, easy. but then she pulled on a leather jacket and the rush of sheer 'Holy Fucking Shit. That's The Most Stunning Look Possible For Humans To Witness' was enough that i just ended up walking in the exact opposite direction, and that's the mood of the week, y'all!

    1. conradbirdie

      conradbirdie

      it's no biggie, since i see her every week for classes and stuff, i was just blown away by the contrast between 'i can say five word sentences' and 'i am very gay so i am afraid i must leave at once'

  10. i've got some time to write, bless- so i Will probably be replying and posting stuff in the very, very near future rather than just liking stuff in hopes of still showing appreciation, but i'm gonna have to do that after doing some final bits of 'cleaning up my notes so i can actually read them later' lmao

      lol dont worry kiddo ive been scraping time out from god knows where for days and now i have a Huge Chunk today

    2. conradbirdie

      conradbirdie

      i admire your persistence!

  11. playing d&d with strangers is so wild bc there's a 50/50 chance you're gonna find out everyone in the group is super chill, super story-driven, super supportive, and super gay and a 50/50 chance you're gonna find out everyone in the group thinks the reason they don't have a girlfriend is because 'male nerds are persecuted' and not because they're assholes

  12. i just figured out the best possible way to describe what i know about my gender but it sounds dumb as all get out lmao
    you know those optical illusions that are two opposite things At The Same Time but what u see them as changes just based on ur current perception?? That

  14. me, reclining on a white velvet lounge chair with a champagne flute of capri sun in my hand and perfectly manicured nails to press against my forehead despairingly: the heathers reboot twists the entire message of every version of it hence in the most tragically short sighted way possible

      HEY MOOD !! i know they were trying to go for 'look how much diversity we have!!' w/ the heathers but i mean. really? ur gonna make the group thats supposed to represent the toxic standard of beauty and power be kids who wouldn't be considered beautiful or powerful by said toxic standard, then make them the bad guys and have two white straight cis kids kill one of them?? im just. hhhhhhhHhh

  15. hey!! as you can probably see in your notifications, @Short_comedian said you've done national history day, and Again, As You Probably can See, i'm trying to figure out if i should do it or not. how have been your experiences with it? i also heard the judges give you feedback at various stages of the competition, how is that?

      @Short_comedian dude, sweet!! DI is a blast, but getting to globals on your first year's a doozy of a feat! ( gotta be honest, one of the major appeals of going to globals for me was the sheer amount of ice cream they had at lunch every day kdfjvdjkf) what event did y'all do, though?

    3. Short_comedian

      Short_comedian

      @conradbirdie we always did the improv challenge. We were pretty good at it and it's helped me a lot through the years.

    4. conradbirdie

      conradbirdie

      @Short_comedian nice!! i did the improv challenge my last year i did DI, it was a lot of fun. it sounds like you had a good time, too!

  16. hey dude i saw you mentioned nhd which i? Think is national history day? i'm trying to decide if i should try my hand at that, so i want to gather some info if you don't mind: how has it been so far? is this your first year or nah, like, did you enjoy it enough to come back, basically?

    1. Short_comedian

      Short_comedian

      It is National History Day. This is my second year doing it, and I'm not very good at researching so it's not really my thing. It's required by the program that I'm in (you can also ask @bearboy about it, he's done it before) but basically if I had the choice to do it or not, I'd skip it.

    2. conradbirdie

      conradbirdie

      gotcha, thanks a billion! i'm pretty into researching, so at least that part might be a little more fun for me, in a way. i'll ask izaak on his own profile so you dont keep getting pinged about it a million times lmao- thanks again!

    3. Short_comedian

      Short_comedian

      Glad I could help!

  17. this week on: "i thought i was over this piece of literature but now that i'm writing another paper on it i'm pissed and delighted again"

  18. my fave part of the iliad is when achilles refuses to take a bath until he's buried his bf but promptly forgets about that in favor of feasting and sleeping to the point where patroculus' entire fuckin' ghost has to come to him in his dreams and go "CAN YOU P LE A SE JSUT BU RY M E" and the first thing achilles says is "why have you returned to me ????"

    1. conradbirdie

      conradbirdie

      my least fave part of the iliad is. homer's feet descriptions. "oh, a mother begging for her sons life?? feet descriptions. oh, someone suiting up for war to take revenge?? feet descriptions" nobody likes you homer just stop

    2. flamecoloredglowstick

      flamecoloredglowstick

      'nobody likes you homer just stop' may be the best thing i've read all week

  20. bad news: woke up sore as hell, managed to work out for another hour to try and get rid of said soreness, but that just made it Worse so idk how i'm gonna do more physical therapy tonight :/

  22. Pro Tip Of The ADHD Day: the find tool? is so good? the only reason ive been able to actually puzzle out what some of these academic texts im trying to study say is bc i picked whatever keyword i needed to know about and used it as an anchor, i Highly recommend it

    2. conradbirdie

      conradbirdie

      yo thats so true!! autism + adhd are like. Siblings Of Each Other tbh

  23. the real question is "how obviously gay and in want of a shorter haircut do i have to be before whoever's cutting my hair stops asking if i'm sure a million times and then tells me i cant just shower and comb it and call it a day"

      flamecoloredglowstick
