and Saturday night (maybe drunk?) GTers are probably the best people for advice.
Because I don't have anyone to tell in real life, and because it's not really that exciting to anyone except meee.
God, it's the worst when someone asks "have you lost weight recently?" and sincerely means it as a compliment. A male friend of mine today said this to me and I can't even be mad at him because he's always super sincere, and I know that it wasn't a conscience attempt to neg me or anything. It just made me super…
Guys, I made a mistake yesterday and really over reacted to a conversation I was having with a friend, and then completely shut down. Now I think I need to apologize and I'm really nervous about it.
It's about midway through this school semester, the constant eye twitch is in full force, minor heart palpitations due to extreme anxiety and caffeine consumption.
TW: inane, privileged, money
I'll preface this by apologizing, because I feel like I only post self-indulgent downer stuff on groupthink. Sorry :(
Here's the story:
So I've emerged from my usual lurking, because I am no longer calm on account of a fairly minor thing, and writing things out helps.
I made a really off-colour joke today around a new group of friends, and have been feeling like a fool ever since. Now I'm doing this dance in my head trying to decide whether or not I should bring it up again to apologize/make sure people know I wasn't trying to offend any one in earnest. Suggestions? or just your…
I'm freshly off the high of spending money at a wonderful wonderful book sale (one dolla each ya'll!) I found a bunch of super cool and useful books and only spent $15! My best find was an old illustrated edition of Bocaccio's Decameron.
Worst first day of school combo EVER!
I feel like a music thread might be appropriate tonight after the VMAs (are they over yet?). I love top 40 as much as your average 14 year old (like I really really love pop music, and not even ironically), but tonight I'm listening to some nice bluegrass.
I have a sort of job interview with the curator at a museum for a volunteer position tomorrow. We're meeting to "discuss the volunteer program", and even though it's not a real job and I even know the curator already I'm still super nervous. What if I say something dumb (it's not uncommon for me guys)?! Cute gifs…
And I am crying. This is really old, but I just came across it tonight, and thought I'd share it if any one else is as behind the times as me.
I have friend who is living in South Africa right now, and in her last message to me she mentioned that she's worried about what might happen when he eventually dies. I'm not familiar with the social/political situation there, so I'm just wondering if anyone around here has any good resources or articles about the…
Today has been the ennui-iest day I've had in a long time. No particular reason, I've had a pretty good week (minus the anxiety caused by running into a friend who started talking about applying to grad school). I met up with one of my professors and a classmate today which is usually one of the highlights of my week,…
I need wedding fashion halp!
I've been studying all day for an art history exam which means trying to memorize a million slightly different gothic cathedrals named Notre Dame. So I put on the soundtrack to the Hunchback of Notre Dame musical as inspiration/distraction (also bruno pelletier is a hottie... so that's a factor).
So I've been sort of hermitty for the entire year (this is an understatement). I haven't been making a huge effort to see my friends, because in general I'd rather be alone watching tv, reading or studying than with people. I found out today that one of my very good(?) friends is moving away for two months, and she…
