So, I uhhh, am blogging maybe a bit? Trying to do new things, so hopefully this will become a thing! This was originally posted at Tokens and Twofers, and eventually I will probably just cross-post the first third or so rather than the entire piece. But, here it is:
So I want to travel somewhere. I've been bored with my own life, I'm sick of looking at people's vacation pictures, and I want to have an experience!
This gem turned up on my Facebook feed just now:
So I don't know if you guys remember my freak outs about applying to graduate school for a masters in social work, but I made it through (thanks to everyone who read/edited personal statements and such)! And now I have some acceptances! But now comes the part that I always knew would suck: trying to decide.
Trigger-Warning for skin-picking?
So, I have an electric blanket that I left on this morning. It has an automatic shut-off after ten hours, but I turned it on at 8:30a and I won't be home until 8:30p. Part of me is wondering if I should go home to turn it off, but I don't have a car. So I would have to walk 15 minutes in what feels like -5 degree…
My friend's ex-boyfriend, who I am still inexplicably friends with on Facebook just shared this quote from Bill Cosby:
HAPPY UPCOMING NEW YEAR!
HOW IS YOUR WEBSITE GOING TO CRASH TWO HOURS BEFORE THE APPLICATIONS ARE DUE?? HOW HAS IT BEEN 45 MINUTES AND NOTHING HAS BEEN FIXED?
So in fairly typical Austentatious fashion, I have left my graduate school applications to the (somewhat) last minute. I am applying to various programs, but the first ones are due next Sunday, December 1st. I am in fairly desperate need of as much input as possible for my statements of purpose and personal…
Today has not been a great day.
In the past couple of weeks I have had the following dreams:
I'm going to treat GT like it's my diary!
Just came across this article posted on a friend's Facebook about how black boys fit in better in suburban schools than black girls.
So I finally got around to adding photos to my profile, and now am getting a few messages. Here is my question: how do you deal with messages that are polite but you have no interest in pursuing the person? Am I supposed to just ignore them? Somehow let them know I received their message but am not interested? I don't…
So, I have been realizing that I really need to get on my graduate school applications game. Except in doing so, I have kind of triggered a quarter-life crisis. This is about to be super rambly and possibly disconnected, but here it goes:
Now that I am no longer freaking out about half-face paralysis, time to start writing! I don't know if this is the right venue for this kind of stuff, but I think a lot. Also, what are people's opinions of Tumblr for blogging? I don't understand Tumblr at all...everything confuses me! But anyway...
Reasonably attractive, young, straight female with a question (currently intoxicated):
Thank you so much for all the support you guys gave me in my first post. It was such a great way to be introduced to posting at Groupthink! I just wanted to give some updates...
So I have been lurking on Groupthink for awhile, I completely fell in love with the concept. I have been toying with the idea of starting my own blog for awhile, and I thought this would be a great place to start. I thought about all of the great posts I would write about mental health in marginalized communities,…
