Ugh, I’m watching my sister go down a similar path right now. Baby is due within a few weeks, husband quit his well-paying job while she was pregnant simply because he felt “disrespected,” leaving her to support the two of them while they live in a cramped bedroom in his parents’ house and now he’s working (for now) a…
I’m not going to say that online dating isn’t a cesspool, because it is, and you have to wade through a lot of shit to find someone good...but you can find someone good.
I’ve had the implant, the ring, the copper IUD, and the Mirena IUD.
I would imagine it depends on how much one is invested in either series! I’m not overly episode in either, but I would say I lean more towards GoT. I’ve seen every episode, whereas I’ve not seen every movie in the MCU.
I wasn’t really thinking about the main characters—just in terms of overall scope for all the people. It felt...overwhelming, I guess? A continual barrage of bodies and death and waiting to see if any of the main characters would actually kick it and, if so, how.
I totally get where you’re coming from! But for me, I felt more impacted by Infinity War, so Endgame didn’t feel as powerful (still good, still powerful, still satisfying), whereas GoT had me on the edge of my seat the whole time and breathless.
At one point I got light headed from crying too much and not breathing enough. I think your blow analogy is apt...all my feelings just pour out of my eyes.
I do not disagree with you!
With still 3 episodes left, I thought it was too early for any of the main cast to kick it.
I think I was actively crying for the last 45 minutes, trying to catch my breath, and pacing in front of my TV.
Two weeks or so. I had to take a week off work just because of how the doctor’s surgery schedule worked out, and then I had Christmas break, but I could have been back in the classroom after two.
Fibroids are the worst! I got surgery to remove mine (all 2 pounds of it), and my life improved immeasurably afterwards! (No more nightmare periods that happened whenever they wanted, no more soaking through heavy duty pads, no more expelling IUDs, etc...)
Echoing this. In CA, you cannot get UI if you voluntarily resign, so keep that in mind. If you anticipate struggling with finding a new position, make sure to make them officially non-reelect you and then immediately file for unemployment.
Why not pay for some semi-custom pants? I’ve bought a few pairs of Fractal9 leggings for yoga and ordered the waistline several inches higher so that my belly stays covered while yogaing. The customization was free.
This is my baby’s 3rd time in the cone of shame in the last two months. An eye problem still hasn’t healed fully. She accepts it, but she’s super wriggly and snuggly...which is annoying as shit with a cone on.
I had a few students over the years vaguely or explicitly threaten me...mostly empty posturing out of anger, but jesus. The last thing I needed was to have a gun within reach of hormonal, angry teens.
After reading this, I want to quit teaching again.
Fuck irrational emotions.
I was still in elementary school when this happened, so the only memories I have of it from the time are those of the jokes and punchlines, of a woman so crazy to have done something like this. And that’s all I really understood of it well into my adulthood.
