I'm a little sad my study abroad application hasn't gotten to the school yet. I'm applying to a school in London, and I live in California. It was processed out on May 2nd. It must be stuck in customs... ?

If it has to go through customs then it's probably been delayed. They're not the quickest. Good luck, where are you applying?

Thanks!

Queen Mary (it's a "University of London"). It's actually located in East London. It seems really fun.

It did finally get there, though. It left on May 2nd and was processed in there on May 19th, I think it was. On May 20th I had an e-mail from them, so they were really quick once they got it. I guess the academic reference letter was lost somewhere in the process, so they asked for a copy in an e-mail attachment so they could "confirm their decision," whatever that means...

Haven't heard back yet. I'll be ecstatic if I get it, but not too bummed out if I don't.

Ugh! The wait for Doctor Who to return :(

Your wait is almost over!!!


This will be the last post that I make on this site. There is a picture that I saw up on a website from Ethiopia that showed this little boy's wrinkled, emaciated hand in this missionary's big, strong, obviously well-fed hand. The caption read "You hate your life, while other people dream of having it." I sit and read this thread as my husband and I are contemplating what homeless shelter we are going to next because we found out we can't get back into school. Do any of you realize what that is like? Every night I pray that I can have a home and be able to do something as simple as cook my husband a meal. Every night I pray that I can get a car so we don't have to walk everywhere we go because my health is failing. Every night I pray that we can find a job, ANY job, so that we can have an income. We've seen so many dreams of ours go straight down the toilet and we are hanging on by a thread because we are hoping things will change for us. It is not easy wondering where your next meal is coming from or what national forest you can pitch a tent in for two weeks before the cops come and throw you out because of course all homeless people are alike. So as I leave this board, I leave you with a suggestion. Think about it. This is my big bang theory. Peace.

Please let me know if you get this. I care.

Tommy Lee banned Sea World from using Motley Crue songs. Lol. I bet you a mansion that all the things he "knows" about Sea World he got from PETA and similar organizations. Then again who really knows. Either way, what he did does not help anyone. Not wild whales, captive ones. Or any people. Not even PETA.

So, english are going to storm the ecuadors embassy, eh?

-seems to me somebody has been paid a pretty sum for getting assange out in the open, and now this somebody is getting desperate...

Still, hopefully ecuador remains strong, and does not give Assange to these blackguards!

Went to the L.A. County Fair in Pomona,Ca. yesterday. Enjoyed the fair itself. There is a lot of different stuff you can really only find at a fair (Fried Twinkies, for example). But I can't believe the rudeness of some people. When there is a lot of walking I really need a wheelchair (electric if possible). Don't people understand that when someone is in a position like that, I CAN'T stop or turn on a dime? Or that if someone stops in the middle of the isle I CAN'T just walk around them like others? Kids, I can understand, they haven't been taught howto be polite (and it's the kids of the parents that I've been talking about). I am VERY thankful for those few people who took the time to help. To hold a door open, to move to the side to let me by, just to say the're sorry for getting in the way will be remembered for a long time.

I always get annoyed when americans start waggling their jaws about human right issues.

-I mean USA still forces the native americans to live in concentration camps, in appalling conditions.

-So, maybe, like, take care of your own human rights first befor you start mouthing off to china and north korea, is all I'm saying.

SHERMINATOR, I won't go into human rights with you, and I'm not sure where you've gotten your information, but living in California, I must tell you that the Native Americans living in San Manuel, Morongo, Sobobe, Agua Caliente, and Cabazon (to name just the one that are close to me) have a different name for what you call "concentration camps". Here in the USA we call them CASINOS. Native Americans are alive and doing VERY WELL.

Enough Sheldon. In fact, I want Sheldon to f--k off. I like Leonard. I like his character. Sheldon is the same old same old. Leonard evolves more. (Yeah I know, I know, the “Shamy†helps Sheldon evolve. But it’s so slow. He seems the same to me, he sounds the same constantly, anyway..)

More Leonard stuff. For the love of Celestia, please. Enough Sheldon. He’s only so interesting for so much time. More like a cartoon character…

*prepares for attacks from the Sheldon lovers*

“People order each other to smile because they feel uncomfortable around people who are not smiling, especially when those people are women (or are read as such). Women are expected to be nice and sweet, to make other people feel comfortable. A woman who says ‘hey, I think there’s a problem here’ is being ‘negative.’ A woman who doesn’t smile while she’s being harassed is ‘humourless.’ A woman who prefers to stay focused on tasks is a ‘cold bitch.’ Significant gendering is involved here; women have an obligation to look and act a certain way and when they don’t, they need to be hassled until they do.â€

And this is now what I will immediately think of whenever someone tells me to "smile" at work. Fun fact, I don't ever recall another woman telling me to smile. It's ALWAYS guys. Leave me alone. I am a cashier. Not an actress. Would it make you happy if I just smiled constantly all day every day at work? Let me check out your groceries in peace without having to cater to your social needs.

I should be required to always say hello and be polite to my customers, which I am. Not to smile and act happy all the time, especially when I am not. That is what a clown does.

another 9/11 memorial day done

And I still do not get how the planes could hit those targets dead center.

-because you would need the best airline pilot ever to do it with those planes, in those weather conditions.

You see, there is the strong coastal crosswinds to deal with. And even worse, the warm updraft created by NYC itself, meanin that when you enter NYC airspace, your plane is yanked upwards tens of metres.

Smells fishy to me. But hey, you just believe what your government tells ya. Saves you from havin to think. And is safer too, because in america, people askin wrong questions are usually shipped to secret prisons, where they are then tortured by CIA goons...

EARTHCAKE, Point taken. I have been one of those rude people (though I never thought myself as such), who when seeing someone not smiling I would pantomime a large smile. And thinking about it now, I don't think I've ever done that to a guy. Smiling is an option, not a requirement. SORRY!

You are so right. There is a total double standard for women, and take it from me, living in the South, that it is not always the men that make the requirements, it is other women as well. We are so hard on women because we can be. The older I get, the more I realize how much time I've wasted in my life trying to please everyone else, and fit into some kind of perfect "mold". Men can get away with so much more without being criticized.

And, as a comment to what you said about being expected to smile -- several years ago, I was trying to get pregnant before I had my daughter, and month after month of bad results, one morning I had gotten my period and I was down in the dumps. I was in the store and yes, I am sure I looked very sad, and a man (of course a man) that i don't even know, says to me, "cheer up. it can't be that bad."

How the **** would he know? He was a stranger to me, and he had no idea why I down that day!

I got a customer complaint yesterday.

I can't wait to have a job with minimal human interaction. Customers, clients, patients, WHATEVER you want to call them, are a nightmare. I wish I didn't have to be one almost every day. They are a f--king pain. Most people are. Yesterday really tipped it for me. I am very close to becoming very non-social. Well when it comes to interacting with people in person at least.

Did these old people forget what it was like to have a job? Seriously, I'd rather be shoveling elephant poop in a zoo then work with MOST people. And I feel like this most days. I can't STAND being sociable with SO MANY people in one day. Most of whom are completely dumb.

Gettin real tired of your sh-t, Mother Nature. RIGHT when I'm about to walk out the door, the rain starts. I did my makeup today. I was going to go get gas, and a cinnamon melt from McDonalds, and go take pictures. It's my day off. And once again, it rains. What's it like whenever I'm at work? What do you think. F you, life. F you.

I post in here a lot. I'm unhappy a lot. I wish I was happier, but quite frankly it's really not my fault. Sure I could just lie to myself and say everything is going okay, because at least I have a roof over my head and I'm not hungry. But let's be for real.

Right now sucks balls. I have no money and a crapton of stuff to pay for, every day off I have had for the past two weeks, it's rained.

The ONLY good thing about my life right now is my boyfriend, and he lives an hour away.

So! Australian chuch just opened their abuse case files.

-600 cases of abuse in Victoria alone! By priests!

I mean how do they have time to make sermons and stuff, with all that abusing going on?

Okay, okay, I know. No abusing priests in this forum.

After all, we all want to partake of the global hypochrisy that states that priests are holier than the common man, and should therefore never be criticiced, no matter what they do!

In MY opinion, neither GOD nor the BIBLE forbids ANY man from marring a woman . Only the Catholics do. It is unnatural for man to be alone. When you go against the BIBLE, immoral things are bound to happen. I have NEVER met a TRUE man of GOD, weather preacher, pastor, clergy, etc., that thought themselves above anyone else. Every true CHRISTian (that I know) is not sinless, but they want to sin less. And let us not forget the fact that it's not just priests that are doing terrible things to children, but also teachers all over.

PS, SHERMINATOR, and others out there, I don't wish to fight anyone about there beliefs, I',m just saying what I believe, as well as you can. Lets just not turn this into another (un)holy war.

PPS, FYI I grew up Catholic, so I know from which I speak.

very true. The problem with chuch today is that they do not even teach us how to tell right from wrong...

BTW did you know that there are brothels for priests in the VAtican?

I'm sorry you've haven't found a (proper?) church. Mine teaches right out of the BIBLE in a way that is understandable. With none of the legalistic stuff invented by some other churches. I didn't know about the brothels, but I have heard that the first person to find the late popes body was a female (which was a NO-NO)
