I think being an arts major kind of ruined me like that. I've been forced to read so many things I wasn't into. So if nobody has assigned it to me, if I'm not into it after the first few chapters, I put it down. Sometimes faster than that, if it's really hard going.

Yeah i'm not a huge fan of overly descriptive text. It's part of the reason I could never finish reading Lord of the Rings, by the time the main conflict was wrapped up in the final book I was done with the long descriptions and there were still pages and pages to go.

Yeah I read all the Harry Potter books granted I was like 12 when I started

200 pgs is nothing that's like a few nights usually anything less than 200 I will read in one sitting

Shouldn't I be banned?

I'd say sorry but by this point it means nothing.

i hope you do not get banned. if someone's going to be banned I think we all know it should be someone other than you

another someone, if you catch my drift

someone else

a particular someone

Bonnie is already banned, but no. Bonnie is my friend. I had a pretty interesting FB chat with Bonnie last night to be honest.

a particular other someone

I've hung out with Bonnie in person and in my experience she is very kind and generally thinks the best of people, and gives them the benefit of the doubt. Which is why I extend the same courtesies to her.

yes they are. they simply aren't equiped for the conversations I want to have.

part of the problem is that nearly all my friends are (mostly cis) men and I don't actually understand them all that well. My entire life has been about me trying to mimic and fit in with them. I am good at it. But most of the time it still feels alien to me. Also, you'd think my gay friends would get me more, but they don't and they're actually kind of ignorant/bigoted when it comes to certain things.

They've clearly spent too long focused on professional cycling to develop valuable interpersonal skills.

Very wild and inspirational story about a woman who 20 years ago murdered her child and is now a PhD student at Harvard. She's a published researcher and playwright, too.

Some hard time in the slammer is probably what I need to free myself from distractions and give myself the time and focus to follow through on my ambitions.

I think I'm going to stake out that apartment complex parking lot and select the most promising target.

You probably rarely hear about it, though, as sufferers presumably have trouble getting the word out.

i did after reading this post

great article

i hate how shitty the harvard faculty is being. not that i respect this country's legal system, but if even they let someone go, that should be enough for anybody.
