Eh. Mildly. When he said things like "If I would visit you, I could," with me going WTF on the other end. And his crying about how he wishes he hadn't gotten me sick on Saturday when we had a sleepover in his car. He's such a little pussy. : D

... sorry, I know these are supposed to be MY confessions, but it amused me.

P.S. NO, NOT THAT KIND OF SLEEPOVER.

Fix'd. Defenestration for the win.
better(?) fix'd - I threw in the apostrophe in "that's". Defenestration was the first thing I thought of when I read what Daeren Ryft said. Forumeme and vocabularical expansion (and words made up on the spot, I suppose) fatew!* Actually, the forumeme thing might be more apt than I realised - this thread is a meme among foras (emphatic plural! See also first parenthesis), and "defenestrate" is something I've seen quite alot, mostly in these fora.
*how I'd pronounce ftw as a word as opposed to spelling it out.

I finally got my taxes mailed off yesterday. A day late this year. Better than last year, though, when I was 366 days late (I mailed both off at the same time).

I turned down an offer from a friend to be paid to do his homework for him. I don't care enough about money to do something unethical like that, though the jury may still be out on other kinds of unethical. I understand he's in a desperate situation, having missed several classes due to root canals. I know I could do the homework for him in very little time, but in the long run it's not very good for him. Telling him that injective means one-to-one and surjective means onto is one thing, but proving something is injective or surjective is another thing.

I can usually tell when someone is about to put a guilt trip on me, and so I can decide whether or not / at what point to concede before the guilt trip comes. I was recently called to see if I would contribute to the alumni fund (donations from alumni to their alma mater). The university I got my B.S. from has served me well, so I wanted to contribute. The only real haggling point was how much. After all, I am still a poor college student. In light of that, I figured $100 would be about right. I ended up going with $150 (because the next lowest choice was $25, which just seems cheap). So the confession? I let that guilt trip sucker me into 50% more than I was willing to do. Damn those discrete levels of payment! :roll:

Woo! Three sets of parentheses, and none of them nested! I hate nested parentheses in my own writing. Except when I'm doing maths. Nesting parentheses is natural in maths. That's all I have to say about that.[/Gump]

Confession: When I die (Which by the way, I'm not too keen on), I actually want people to wear black at the funeral and be a bit sad about it. Because I'm dead! And that's a bit sad!

This just seems so different from everybody else that I haven't told anyone about it. Is there something wrong with me?

Also, I hope I can tell someone some time in the future, otherwise everyone's going to be all sad on the inside but pretending to be celebrating my life at the funeral, because they think it's what I wanted...

Having no idea how old you are, go get diagnosed. Would you not tell your parents that you broke your damn arm because it might cause tension? No, you'd say you think you broke your arm, and off you'd go to get it fixed up. Same thing with bronchitis, pneumonia, or Ebola.

But ultimately that's not really helpful if you're.. 14 or something. Assuming you're a legal adult.. fuck it, go get checked out.

Ok, not quite. One server, one workstation, and the pastor's laptop. Still, ChurchLAN would be awesome.

Carrying knives with you everywhere is a lot more practical than carrying a watch. Knives can be used in self-defense (or an attack, which I would not general condone, but it's still practicability) or for cutting inanimate objects, whereas what does a watch do? Nothing that the phone in your pocket doesn't. The only difference is that it gives you an ugly tan-line.
I used to wear a watch, but now I have a cell phone. The only time I wear my watch now is when I'm scuba-diving.


I carry a towel in my backpack all the time now. Without it I feel ill prepared for whatever eventualities may arise.



No, really. I'm not joking here.

My boyfriend and I have stayed together every night for the past 7 months, except two nights.
Now I haven't been alone with him for four days.

I feel like such a seflish bitch because honestly I really just want him to spend some time with me and not talk about Dad.
Is that horrible?

EDIT: But to be fair, I've been at their house for four days cleaning and cooking for them, with less than 6 hours of sleep each night. But not because I have to, because I WANT to.
Life is beautiful.

I will haunt anyone who wears black to my funeral who doesn't normally wear black. What opiated medieval dickweed ever decided that black means sad? All my clothes are black, not because I'm a sad person, but because I like the color black.
Confession: After being in "Back to the 80s", I'm almost tempted to start wearing colors.

Hm, so as far as I know, this is what you know about me:
1. I'm Italian
2. I play guitar (or at least have held a purple one in front of a camera at some point)
3. I know the words to "Never Gonna Give You Up"
Somehow, from these three facts, you can decide that I would like an Italian symphonic power metal band.

@Delalyra: If you want to know more about atheists (and thus know that you and I know nothing :wink: ) feel free to give me a PM. That will clear up your preconceptions.

And, yes, yes it is another security blanket. It's a very nice and fluffy one, but a security blanket all the same. It's your decision to use it.

But ultimately that's not really helpful if you're.. 14 or something. Assuming you're a legal adult.. fuck it, go get checked out.
See, the problem is I'm not a legal adult. My father's reaction to this is not something I would want. I can tell by his attitude that he is disappointed in me. On rare occasions, he will go completely ballistic and tell me I'm a freak and I need to see a professional. If I actually admitted to this and got it acknowledged by a professional, I'm afraid he might treat me differently. His suspicions would be confirmed.

The reason this is coming up is mainly because I'm changing schools soon, and attending a more selective school. In my current school, minimal effort is needed to be at the top of my class. When I change schools, my OCD will most likely be a hindrance to my academic potential. By how much I am not sure. All I know is I get a poor amount of sleep because of it, I have studying problems, homework problems, problems with showing up on time, and other related issues.

Not only that, but I'm hoping the atmosphere of my new school will be better than that of my current. Right now, I have little to worry about regarding social hindrances, as I don't have much of a social life (which is unrelated to my OCD).

Is it me or does that guy sound ALOT like Christopher lee?

He should sound like Christopher Lee... because he is Christopher Lee.

Confession: Someone stole the homework answers (not me, but I was going to use them :wink: ). Now, why can't anyone find them? Such incompetence...

Confession (well not much of one): I am really very spiritualistic. I am not very religious. I find that I fit best under the description of ignostic though. I don't understand the concept of god as it is utterly intangible and is something that no one can explain or experience.

Second Confession: I've still not heard any word from my GP. My level of anxiety is getting to the point where other people are noticing it and commenting on it even with my trying to control it with relaxation exercises and such. I'm not impressed.
