Updates about you!

So, I thought that I'd make a board where we can give updates on what we're doing, just for fun. Just say some stuff about what happened to you recently or how you're feeling

So I got up at 3:30 am today to catch a plane. It is now 4:30 pm and I haven't napped. I got 4 hours of sleep last night. I'm supposed to be napping right now, but I'm on NMG instead. Because I am a smart person. Whatever.

    I just spent 6 hours out of the house - hour and a half Russian class and then several hours talking to people at the university in my town trying to figure out how best for me to study there. I'm TIRED.

      Oh wow. Get some rest tonight, Valentina. (I hope the class and conversation were productive, however!)

      Not to one-up you, but I saw your comment because I was just coming here to mention I'll have over twelve hours straight out of the house today, between class, work, and transportation. And I'm already tired at 8:15 in the morning, which does not bode well. xP

        Ouch. Take breaks where you can grab them. And remember to eat! xD

        (It was very productive, thank you. Planning college stuff is stressful, but I might finally be getting somewhere.)
        • Also make sure not to drink your woter, that's very important in a healthy lifestyle

            I think you have a typo in there. An extra three letters. No big deal; part of my work involves editing, so I notice these things. xD
            • No typo
              Just truth

              I'm so amused by this.

                It was the closest I could get on this platform to "Fixed It For You," where you quote a post and edit the quote.

          Will do. I do have a few short breaks, so eating sbould be doable. Also, the last of the three jobs I'm bouncing between today basically involves periodic rounds of the printers and otherwise just sitting behind a desk in case people have problems with the computers... which, in the two shifts I've worked so far, no one actually has. So hopefully that part won't be too strenuous. xD

          (And I'm glad to hear it! Truth about the stress, though. We do, BTW, have some excellent universities in Michigan. Not that it would probably make any sense for you to come here, but I feel compelled to mention it. ;))
      • Oof that is a lonnng time out of the house. Get some sleep

Not a People Person

Okay i am going to very very clear...I need advice from someone older than me. I am not very much a people person like I don't talk much around other people how would you say I deal with this? - Anonymous Hi! I’m not very much of a “people person” myself, and am generally very shy and quiet in social settings, so I definitely understand this. As I know firsthand, it can be hard being less socially inclined than those around us… but I’m actually going to start by suggesting that, contrary to…

Fear of Growing Up

“Dear S2S Mentors, I am afraid of growing up. I have been my whole life, and... I just don't want to grow up. Do you have any advice or reassurance? Thank you.” - Solene   Solene, Good gracious, but I relate to this so deeply. Growing up has been a prospect that’s been rather frightening to me for some years—and (speaking as someone who recently became a legal adult last year) it’s also been very relevant for me of late. That said, the good news (again speaking as someone who recently became a…

Getting Work Done

“I’m in the first year of high school this year and I’ve found I’m really really bad at getting work done like I am not good at it at all. Last year in middle school I didn’t care as much about getting work done because in the long run as long as I was passing my class it wasn’t a big deal. This year it matters more what grades I get and so far I’m getting pretty average grades but they aren’t as good as I’m hoping for. A problem about this is I know I can do better but I just procrastinate and…

Drama vs. Empathy

There's a lot of stuff going on at my school right now - a lot of personal drama and just plain rudeness. Even if the frequent judgmental comments are not aimed at me (though they were last year), whenever it happens around me I start to feel a bit ill. I guess one could say I'm extremely empathetic when it comes to these things. I've talked about it with my parents and teachers but haven't completely revealed the full extent of it - I'm really nervous about standing up and I hate it. I've…
