I hate college. I hate everything about it. I don't think college is for me, and all it has given me is severe, seemingly inescapable depression. Just because I'm intelligent doesn't mean that the road to a doctorate is the right path for me. It just doesn't work that way.
I agree. I'm soooooooooo sick of school. It's fighting me. I just want it over with. I hate buying the overpriced textbooks, studying for pointless tests, taking classes that won't be beneficial to me after graduation, crippling student loans, petty professors, small-minded ass-tick classmates, and just the overall feeling that I'm WASTING my time. College is a joke. It really is.
I agree, more or less. I can't say I'm depressed by any means, but I really do feel like I'm wasting my time. I'm sick of the whole system. And it's only my second semester. I'll finish, but I really don't understand how anyone could enjoy college nearly as much as they make it sound like. It all just feels like a joke sometimes. Maybe it has something to do with being a commuter, but I really doubt it. I think I'd hate college no matter what... Especially if I had to live in a dorm with other girls. I'm sick just thinking about it.
I hate ALWAYS having something or other looming over my head - there's always more studying, more reading, more homework that could be done. Even my "free" nights aren't really free. I'm always thinking about how there's more I could be doing.
ETA: Worst of all, it's all just a game. It's all about saying what you think the professor wants to hear. I'm paying HOW much for that?
Sometimes, people ask me if I'll ever want to get my Master's. LOL! Yeah, right.
Omg, it feels so good to at least know that I'm not alone. Both of you have described exactly how I feel almost perfectly, and it's a consolation to know that I'm not the only person in the world experiencing these feelings. I know it's pathetic, but both of you just made my day.
Why is it so damn difficult for me to clean my apartment on a consistent basis?? I really don't want to be messy but I just HATE IT!
Am I the only one? Is this why I'm not married????
Nah. I'm a terrible housekeeper and I've managed to attract men, including 3 husbands, the last of whom has stuck around for 16 years. Some people are cleaners and some people are not. Accept yourself as you are.
Is there an epidemic of photo contests going on?!? Some new scam to mine us for personal information? Seems like half my facebook friends are asking me to "vote for them" in some c.ockamamie contest. There were a couple requests on here too. Is begging for family/friend votes really the best judge of a photo? I think not.
Fair warning...if I bother to vote at all, I'm more apt to vote against you if you ask me to vote for you.
guano: I love the word c.ockamamie. Would it be censored if it was written. Going to try it here: cockamamie.
Thanks for the giggle RCW

I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair.... Every day is a gift
Well, I'd like to be healthier and I figure salads can be my entry point, I've got to take baby steps!! I like lettuce, tomato (regular not those stupid grape ones), olives & corn, I figure I can start there but I don't know where to go with dressings. I had a salad with balsamic vinegar and liked it; I'm just at a loss...

~ I am flat out pooped. Why can't I keep up with this traveling business like I used to.
~I am sore.

Byron,GA> Charleston, SC> Jacksonville, FL> Guilford, CT> Rohnert Park, CA! A southern drawl in sunny Cali! . The amount of time from slipping on the peel and landing on the pavement is exactly one bananosecond. I do have a secret yen for pink in unexpected places. ~ninja dog
I've decided that I'll never get down to my original weight, and I'm OK with that--After all, 8 pounds 2 oz. is just not realistic.
Salads aren't especially nutritious though.
How can you like tomatoes but not like grape tomatoes? I swear your brain is scrambled!
Best all-purpose dressing is sherry vinaigrette for my money. The words balsamic vinaigrette make me twitchy. It's the dressing that makes everything taste like balsamic dressing. And it's too sweet. But I fear it's going to be over-used forever!
I find grape tomatoes annoying, they don't taste bad though. I think salads seem like a good starting point for someone as picky as I am, I figure if I start there and stay with it I can one day start doing it with other foods. It worked with orange juice! I used to hate it (love the actual fruit) but I forced myself to keep drinking it and now I like it. I tried that with bananas but ugh they just taste gross to me.

SIB, I was going to suggest salade Lyonnaise, but it's not healthy exactly (I don't consider it unhealthy really, but compared to what people typically think of salads it is). It makes a great lunch or dinner all by itself though. You'll have eaten frisee and I'm guessing poached eggs for the first time. It is such a great bacon-y salad!
A chopped salad is a good change of pace, too. And more nutritious.
