thanks! I should probably start studying though...
might be good. i was recently advised, that especially when you have multiple things that need to get done, the best way not to procrastinate is to put the unpleasant stuff first and just force yourself through them, as a big part of putting things off, is the fact that you continue to think something along the lines of, bleh, i still have to _________ which makes you want to do it less, the longer you think about not wanting to do it.
Totally. I just keep telling myself "I will be done in 1 week. I will be done in 1 week." It has become my mantra.
ok, nerd moment...as if every waking moment weren't :D
i love how you used mantra just there, as we're kinda on the subject of how our thoughts, feelings and words all shape each other. using a word with the root meaning of 'thought form' to describe how you're trying to use your time frame to influence your thinking and attitude is just fantastic.
hahah this is what my everyday dialogue consists of. I have had people I know come up to me randomly and say "how do you sound so smart?" I don't want to sound like a pretentious jerk by saying that, but I usually don't know what to say. I usually just end up saying "I like words" or "I read." Their response, "Oh... I don't like to read." This is where I would like to say "No sh*t, Sherlock."
Note: The people that ask are not smart.
Are you kidding?! I can't wait to enter the real world. I am seriously sick of being judged on how smart I am by multiple choice tests!! I suck at them and the real world doesn't judge you by how you bubble in a,b,c or d. Anyways.. =] I hope to get an entry level position in a Studio. WB, Universal, etc.
What are your plans?
Ya, I go to a pretty big university so professors usually do like to grade 300-600 papers.
Hey everyone, I'm Milly, average high school student.
I first read Looking for Alaska in 2007. I remember talking to a librarian about loving it some time later, and she told me, "Oh yeah, that was a great book."
Cut to about four years later, where the following story picks up.
The librarian at my school was actually the person who I should indirectly thank for introducing me to Nerdfighters. I was checking out Paper Towns (again!), and he told me that if I pre-ordered "The Fault in Our Stars," I could get a signed copy (and of course I forgot to pre-order the book, but that's another story). and that kind of just led me down the trail to find Nerdfighters!
I like Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate (minus Universe), calculus (even though I'm terrible at it), and myriad other things. oh and I've been a regular on a gaming forum for about three years!
Yeah, I guess that's it. :)
welcome Milly! sorry, but in what way are you so 'average?'
Oh, I say that somewhat tongue-in-cheek. I also kind of have this tendency to be ultra self-deprecating.
It's nice to meet you, Danno! :)
