Feeling kind of bummed. I talk to my best friend of 10+ years nearly every day about everything (and she talks to me about everything). She emailed me to ask how things had gone with off-again/on-again guy the other night, and at the end of a long email about unrelated conversational stuff, I updated her about that.

I'm trying to concentrate on thesis writing, and my best friend is too busy for a phone call right now, but I just need to share this somewhere. I've posted a little bit about off and on guy problems before but... It looks like we're working things out, and taking things slowly in a really positive direction. I'm

I have had an eyelash stuck in my eye SINCE LAST NIGHT. I am a few more blinks away from just King Lear-ing myself, it's driving me mad. I've tried looking for it and fishing it out but it's small and I only saw it once, it keeps moving around, and I tried like rinsing with water and blinking furiously. It's still

I'm in a "waiting to have a Talk" period about an long on-again off-again relationship (recently off/in limbo) thing. It's already been a while, but we talked about sitting down mid next week. He's away until then and we keep talking around it but the wait has been wreaking havoc on my concentration, and it's thesis

Posted this in #tips, but thought some people here might be interested. Long article about a "retro" stay at home mom, with some perspectives on gender roles in the home, the progress of an ongoing need (or lack thereof) for feminism as we historically know it, etc. I fully admit I haven't finished reading the

Tried to post this earlier but my account wasn't working. Interesting (and potentially problematic, at least to me) article about a "retro" stay at home mom, with some perspectives on gender roles in the home, the progress of an ongoing need (or lack thereof) for feminism as we historically know it, etc. I fully

Question about carbon monoxide...so I have way too many alarms and sensors in my apartment, because when the building sold last year they added a ton of new ones next to the old ones. My old CO detector (says 2007 on the back) starting doing the "I'm out of battery" chirp the other day. When I replaced the

Another OKCupid question: how long is too long to wait before replying to messages? I've received a few actually nice messages from people who seem interesting, but I've been both swamped with grad school and also, frankly, a little nervous about the whole talking to strangers thing. It's been maybe between 1-2

Silly complaint, but have you ever felt like their bras don't fit anymore completely out of the blue? I swear to god the last week I feel like I'm constantly (and obviously) adjusting myself only on one side. So annoying. They can't all have stretched out at exactly the same time!

General question about online dating. I'm about a month out of a break-up...well, whatever you call it when a year-long undefined relationship ends but is still kind of unresolved. I'm thinking about cleansing my palate and distracting myself with some friendly conversation and dating, because this is has been

Isn't it great when you send your mentor your presentation for an upcoming thesis meeting (the one where you'll get permission to write your thesis) several days in advance and he has no comments until 5 pm the day before the meeting (at which time he has a comment on every slide)? Even with the best laid plans,
