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.

        • EYYy, I'm watching that anime, I really like it!
  • What do you think about the Supreme Court case with the baker and gay couple? Who do you think is right?

    I don't know the details admittedly. I think the baker doesn't have a right to refuse, since it's a business and thus is public. And then who else would be able to refuse based on race? ethnicity? anything else? Therefore you can't refuse.
    • I'm not really sure how to feel about it. I disagree with the baker's beliefs that gay marriage is wrong, which makes it hard for me to look at the case in an unbiased way. Though I do think legally, the baker has to sell the couple the cake. Because the cake itself doesn't carry any meaning, I don't think. The couple wasn't asking for him to make them a cake with lettering on it that said, "GAY MARRIAGE IS GREAT". It was just a simple white cake. It didn't even have to be used for a wedding. So for the people saying that the right to freedom of speech protects his right to not sell them the cake... I can't agree with that. The cake wasn't saying anything. And the baker shouldn't be concerned with how the couple intends to use it in the first place— that's 100% their business and doesn't affect him in the slightest. Simply put, all he would be doing is selling two men (I think they were men?) a cake (that doesn't have writing or pictures on it). By doing that he isn't condoning same-sex marriage, he isn't making a statement. He's just doing his job, selling baked goods to customers. So yeah, anyway, that's my say on the matter.
    • Oh my gods WHYYYYYYYYYYY I AM ANGRY NOW.

      While I can kinda see where the baker is coming from, I just can't quite side with him. This article does a better job of explaining than me: both the details of that case and others similar, and where the line is drawn: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/11/27/opinion/gay-wedding-cake.html

Feeling Like a Second Choice

“I feel like I am always the second choice for my friends at school. They always want to sit with other people or work with other people. They are not mean to me or anything and I think they do like me but I dont think they like me as much as they like anyone else. I feel like I am overreacting about this and I dont know what to do about it.” -Ellie Oof I know how you feel, Ellie :’( I’ve struggled with feeling like my friends’ second choice for years, it really wears down on you after awhile.…

Getting a counselor

Lots of Friendship Problems

“I've been having A LOT of friendship problems at the moment, and I'm finding it hard to sustain the majority of my "friendships", should I say? I have this one friend who's NEVER apologised to me. I can't tell her because she's really sensitive, and would bite my head off (theoretically, of course). We've had fights like that. Another thing is for them to stop texting me when they're bored 'cause it makes me feel like I'm thier last option. I really need help!” -Emily Communication is very…

Menstrual Cycle Schedule

“Is it okay not to have your period at the beginning of the week in a new month but have it the next week?” - Anonymous   Hi there, Good news: Yes, not only is it okay to have some inconsistency in your period schedule, it’s also totally normal! Especially when you’re younger and/or relatively new to menstruating (although, for some people, this can apply later on as well), it’s very common for your period not to follow a precise monthly pattern. Many people might not get their period again…
