I know I just posted, but I need to get a big old rant off my chest, and saying it strangers seems like the best course of action and whatnot.

So today's effectively been a shitty day, hence the need to rant. It started out good, save for being tired as hell but that's not new for most people on earth. So I get ready for school blah blah blah, and I spend the hour-long bus ride trying to sit sideways without falling out of the seat-- I don't like people sitting next to me because I get very enrvous and claustrophobic when people trap me between the seat and the window, but I don't want to sound like an ass and ask people to move, so I just try to prevent anyone from sitting down in the first place. So that was a thing.

Then I get to choir and we sing as usual, but then my best guy friend starts to zone out, and his eyes are getting glazed over. Well, I know what's about to happen. He gets these seizure-like episodes, and he was about to have one. Obviously I call the teacher over and I sprint out to get a bottle fo water for him. By the time I get back he's shaking violently all over the place and the teacher is trying to keep him from hittin his head on the metal risers, so I go and grab his legs while the assisstant is trying to keep class moving and to get people not to stare and shit. Of course all the new kids to choir this year flip out because they don't know what's happening, so they have to be calmed down and everything is explained to them while I'm trying to keep my friend from cracking his head open and hurting himself. Thankfully he comes out of it after three minutes and he slowly sits up and sips some water. I take him to the office and return while the teacher explains the situation to everyone and whatnot. So now I'm all rattled as I head to English.

English is super mellow, we had a project due but I don't present until tomorrow so I got to chill and just kind of calm down for a bit. However, after English I check my phone and there's a text from my guy friend. He was heading home when his mom got a call, and apparently his dad was in a car crash. Seriously, could HIS day get any worse? Thankfully his dad is okay, and only suffered very minor injuries. Thank God. And we move on.

Spanish was boring, we just recited the Spanish alphabet which I memorized days ago. So I go to lunch and begin eating my pasta and whatever else I packed. As I'm eating, this one girl that annoys the crap out of everyone comes up, looking and my pasta, and just REACHES INTO MY FUCKING BOWL AND TAKES OUT A NOODLE WITH HER BARE HANDS. I mean...seriously?! WHO DOES THAT?! I just look at her like "what the hell?!" and she's like "Chill, I'm not taking your lunch or anything. You've got more than enough food." .....clearly, she doesn't understand that's not the issue. My problem is that it's generally considered rude and disgusting to stick your bare hands in someone else's food. So I effectively lost my appetite on that one, and of course as I'm putting it away she asks "Hey, can I have that?" ....how about no?

Thankfully Biology was really chill and really fun, so that makes me feel a bit better. Geometry was about the same, and all was good in Jackie land. Then it just goes downhill from here. I head to robotics, which is usually my favorite part of the day, except for one team member. This is this one kid on my team who is the MOST annoying kid I've ever met. All he does is blurt out things and interrupt everyone, and when someone tells him to cut it out he just giggles and causes more distractions. Why is he on the team? So I spent three hours trying not to blow a fuse as everyone else on the team resisted the urge to deck him in the face. Did I mention he has a really annoying voice? It just cuts right through you. The discussion ended up being very disjointed because he interrupted someone every five seconds, causing many trains of thought to be derailed, and way too many distractions.

By the time I finally get home, I just want to sleep, but no. I have 3 hours of homework to get done, and then I have to work on my Engineering Notebook for robotics. Regardless, I get it done and then head online to FINALLY relax. Oh wait, how about no. The second I get online, this annoying guy starts mesaging me nonstop. He's sort of my friend...kind of. However, every time I get online he just messages me over and over, and I don't have the heart to tell him to leave me the fack alone! After such a long, exhausting day I just want to chill and listen to music, and I even switch myself to busy on Skype (I don't log off because sometimes people have important things to say to me), but no, he thinks it's stilla good idea to message me. I ignore him, but he doesn't stop. I am seriously going to block him without warning, and when he asks why I'm just going to roll my eyes.

THEN, my best friend tells me she's not completing a cosplay she was going to do. Normally I don't care, but we're doing a duo, and if she doesn't do this outfit it'll just be me... the thing is, she could have done it. She was just too lazy to get up and go get the materials for it.

TL;DR I'm stressed, tired, pissed off, and I have nowhere to direct these tedious emotions.

So that was my day.

So, I'm working on going back to school for special ed, and I swear this one admissions website is designed to confuse people so that it weeds out the stupids and keeps all but the most determined from completed the application. I'm almost done, but I still haven't submitted my transcripts. Why? I can't for the life of me find where the frack I'm supposed to mail them! I have searched for hours, and I know this information exists. I clearly recall seeing it with my own eyes, but now it is nowhere to be found. I am so confused and frustrated I'm about to SCREAM!

So, what is it, university? Do you not want people to attend your school?

I got back from doing the grocery shopping a few hours ago. I fell asleep while reading and the sun started shning on me. I feel like I've been baked in the oven for 10 hours and I haven't even remembered to chill any of my drinks....

This is probably very late but I wanted to offer my best wishes to you and your mother. I hope everything turns out okay and she's well.

Now I can see why all my friends hate the school drama teacher. He was nice to me last year but this morning he started yelling at me and calling me forgetful and infuriating and pretty much saying I was a stupid child. He'd assigned us to work in groups last week and I'd had such a head cold then that I couldn't remember anything he'd said, so I tried explaining that and asked which group I was in and he flipped out at me saying I should "get some memory and pay attention instead of reading all those stupid animated books" and that he'd "Take them every day when I came into class so I'd have nothing in my hands to distract me."

For the record, I was NOT reading manga while he was talking. I was reading before the bell rang, but I put it away when class started.

Secretly record him and show it to your principal

I'd do it.

Cadmium-- I'll send a prayer and thoughts her way.

Quinn-- I am sorry to hear that your teacher is being a jerk. Was it really necessary to go so far as to trash what you were reading too? Sigh.

I could ramble for hours on why I loathe college applications.

Fish-And-Chips: Oh my goodness. Sounds like you had an absolutely crazy day. I am glad to hear that nobody was seriously injured though!

I hate when people try to tell me how to live my life. Just because I don't act, dress, or think like you doesn't mean I fail as a human being. Just be cause I don't wear makeup or cute clothes or become friends with every person I come in contact with doesn't mean I'm a terrible person.

Also, just when I think I can't possibly suck more at anything else, my sister tells me that I look bad when I cosplay boys. Most of my cosplays are boys. And it hurts coming from her considering she's the one whose been most accepting of my cosplays.

Absolutely dislike when medical people try and schedule crap for you when you aren't ready persay say I.e Financial Wise. Annnnnnnnnd you have gone over the treatment plan of a 2 year process quit trying to make it into a 2 MONTH process!

Especially when I have politely cancelled and tell you I completely understand the risk, but let me I dunno pay for my 2,000 dollar surgery next week which is by far what needs to be done first like the Doctor said annd then we can go to another phase of the plan okay Becky (receptionist)?
I don't need a lecture of why I shouldn't; I told you I will reschedule after the surgery. Would you like to pay for the treatment then Becky? No? Okay then please kindly leave me be like I asked, or your office manager will hear of it .

While the term "popular" makes the sentence very highschool-ish, it doesn't mean there isn't a valid point in it. People of either genders with extensive friends circles are likely less prone to be into the "meeting other folks" unless they register as equal or more awesome than the people they already consider friends

The bolded part could be reworded though.



For the most part, I think people come to this thread to unload crap, not necessarily to get advice. The decision to give advice tends to come from us.



Conventions are a good start, I'm going to assume you're using "people" here because you don't want to publicly state "girls" outright.

Though, to impress, you normally need to have skills for stuff --- and I can't help with that. My major skills lie in things that only get noticed if they don't work.
not using, just asking for advice, when you mean skills for stuff, what do you mean for example? specifically?

Scalping, knitting, baking, untraceable cat shipments, that sort of thing. Kildread is a man of many skills, not all of which are necessarily the most reasonable of abilities to posses.
