I was scrolling down to find this reply before I wrote one of my own! Growing up, I thought there were two words, segue and segway, with similar meanings. It never occurred to me that I only read, never heard, “segue” and only heard, never read, “segway”
Scrolled down to say the same thing! I got engaged in Dec 2009, and married in Oct 2011—we didn’t really start planning until June 2011. It wasn’t a hollow gesture, we were definitely planning on getting married, but it takes a minute to figure out what kind of a wedding, budget, location, etc. Also, for us, it was…
That’s actually the Time story mentioned in this article. It seems like we all (the author, you, me, probably many others) remember this kid being older than he was. I remembered him as being about 5, but he was really only 3!
I’ve just been worn out. I went through a bunch of pretty shitty stuff in my personal life about 2 years ago, and have been struggling to get back to “normal” ever since. I’ve been in a bunch of therapy, support groups, etc and on top of work/school, it just sucks alllll my energy.
Not really? The mesh part is pretty dense (but definitely still see-though), so it’s not a huge difference. Also, I wear them exclusively indoors, so no wind gusts or anything. I could imagine it might be different for someone who wears them outside running or something.
I have a pair of leggings with mesh panels, and I always feel so weird when I wear them. I bought them accidentally—I needed workout leggings, but am not stylish and also dislike shopping. When I went to the store, I grabbed a pair off the rack that was cheap and had a tame (not neon) pattern.
Agreed! I feel like he might be one of those people who don’t understand you can have a thought and not share it with everyone.
Love it! This was the first one that came up when I clicked the hashtag, and it is sooooo me. Luckily, I’ve learned to not confront my labmates, because it turns out that my pipettes are either right in front of me, or I took them somewhere else in the lab and left them.
Yes, PLEASE watch Brooklyn 99!!! I’ve started 3 separate people on the show, and they all love it! It’s one of those shows where I really can’t pick a favorite character, because I love them all.
THANK YOU! Brooklyn 99 is my current favorite show (I was devastated during the brief period when I thought we wouldn’t get new episodes), and I’m doing a PhD in science, so this is exactly up my alley.
I started my first teaching job at 21 (though I turned 22 shortly after—I have a late August birthday). It’s actually not all that uncommon. If a teacher follows the “standard” path—graduate HS at 17/18, 4 years of college, then begin their career—it’s inevitable. (Actually, starting when I was 18 I was involved in…
Just wanted to add my 2 cents (as a person who has insurance through my employer—so I don’t even have to deal with the hurdle of getting it in the first place).
Over the past year and a half, I’ve been in some pretty intense therapy, and I do the same thing. Typically, I have 3 sessions per week (individual, therapist-led group, and a support group). I dread going to these (basically, I’m going to have to be processing negative events from the past and afterward I have kind…
I just found out he was 32 earlier this week. I saw the clip of him talking about how he was tired of being asked to pick up his trash when there are janitors for that. The caption said it was a speech in high school...in 2002.
I’ve been following her for a little while, and she’s so likable that I’m afraid if I saw her walking down the street I would forget I don’t actually know her.
I blame Sister, Sister for the fact that I still (31 year old woman, apparently a functional adult) routinely mix up the words for “sweater” and “sweatshirt”.
Yep, I can’t understand why this affluent suburb thinks that it’s cool. You’d think there would be some embarrassment there.
