*just to clarify, this is a vague post about RL people, no one on here*

I really wish that things didn't always turn into a conversation of "who has it worse"

Like god, it doesn't always have to be a competition. Honestly, I'm not saying that your own homework woes aren't sucky, but when they follow after my homework woes with the prefix of "Oh that's nothing" it doesn't exactly feel like you're paying any mind to me and that pisses me off >:( Especially when it's something like:

Me: Phew, I made 97 flashcards last night and I'm not even done yet @[email protected]
Friend: That's nothing, I need to make 100 or so flashcards for my class.

Whoopdie-f**king-doo. I don't care. My comment was not an invitation for you to start "one-upping" me. If someone said "My uncle died" would you respond with "Well, my grandma and grandpa BOTH died a year ago so that's nothin"?

No
You wouldn't
because that's insensitive

Just like this

EDIT: apparently the censor didn't automatically catch my swear

I like how your friend didn't realize you are literally doing around the same amount of flashcards (if not more?).

I feel like sometimes the people who do this think they're making you feel better by telling you that you don't have anything to get worked up about, without realizing that all they're actually doing is completely invalidating the feelings that you were attempting to vent.

Like, you do know that you can empathize with someone's upset without invalidating it, right?

Yeah that just made it worse when I was thinking about it. Though, that's not as bad as times where I've honestly by all means have had it "the worst" (at least in numbers of assignments and the like) but they still act like "eh it's not that bad"

Most of the time those convos go like:

Me: Ugh, the timing of the due date of this assignment just doesn't bode well with me.
Friend: I've got it even worse, I've got a test and an essay on the same day!
Me: ......Yeah, that's why the assignment actually doesn't bode well with me. I have a test that day. And another later in the week. Along with five readings and another big assignment along with my usual weekly assignment I have to get done :|
Friend: Oh. Well next month I've got some pretty bad weeks too.
Me: Image

EDIT: @manga: Yeah...that's why I can't exactly get myself mad over it because I'm sure they don't mean it but darn does it suck to feel invalidated almost every time I complain on something >_>

Ow. Chest pain is still not going away, and I've reached the end of the second try with the medicine my doc gave me. I'm rather effectively out of the painkiller that actually does something (one pill left and uncertain how long the refill will take). I called the computer-thing on Saturday to request a refill, but apparently the office didn't actually get/process the request. So I called again yesterday while I was making an appointment for my husband (needs allergy testing) and they said they'd put a rush on it (or at least mark it as urgent?) and I haven't heard back. Because of what the medicine is, I have to actually go down to the doctor's office and pick up the paper scrip to hand-carry over to the pharmacy.
My back isn't happy either, which isn't helping. I am SO looking forward to moving downstairs, but we haven't heard any updates on that since Saturday. Need to find out how soon we can start moving stuff down. I am more than sick of the stairs. Going up all those stairs does NOT help with the chest pain. Or the back pain. Or anything else. ~_~*
I have finally started to actually publish my story! For the moment, expect a new chapter each month.

The Case of the Midnight Channel
"When a strange letter summons the Mouri family to Inaba, Ran is expecting a case. She's not expecting it to involve the TV, though.
If Naoto investigated everyone who came to visit Inaba, she'd have little time for real cases. When Yukiko reports that the Midnight Channel is back, however, she starts to wonder if the visitors are connected. Especially when the image clears, unveiling yet another mystery."

Short version: I'm taking various DC/MK characters to Inaba (where Persona 4 takes place) and dropping them through the TV to face their Shadows!

Ow Ow ow.....

I have a fraking migraine. No, I am not just using 'fraking' to substitute for a different word that starts with F, it literally feels like someone is trying frack my brain. I am not sure if this is better or worse than this morning, when my head felt like it was trying to split open. When I called Mom to explain why I couldn't go apple-picking I told her that I felt like Athena was trying to get out of my brain. "Who's Athena?" she asked. Seriously, Mom? Considering my youngest brother's obsession with Percy Jackson, I don't think it's a stretch to expect my Mom to know a little bit of Greek Mythology. Apparently she hadn't made the connection.
The doctor's office is still being decidedly unhelpful. I called this morning to request that they mark my medicine requests as 'urgent'. I also requested that they call me back before the end of the day regardless of what happened with my request. I tried to call again around 2-ish, but I didn't even get the doctor's office, only the answering service. Getting the answering service in the middle of the day when I know full well that the office should be open was rather frustrating. I called back a little while ago, and did get the doctor's office. They couldn't actually do anything, though. The clerk assured me repeatedly that she'd mark it urgent, and record that I had called (again) to get updates and I really need those medicines. (Painkiller and migraine medication.) Office is open until 7 tonight, so there's half a chance I could send Archi to pick up the scrip on his way home if it's ready by then. (Doc's office is closer to where Archi works than it is to home, but he doesn't have the car.) Here's hoping the scrips are ready by then. I'm less worried about getting to the pharmacy in time to get them filled, as I'm fairly certain that closes around 10pm. The most unfortunate part of the recent conversation is that the clerk told me to 'try and have a good afternoon' as the conversation closed. Um, I just told you I'm having a horrible fracking migraine, your comment sounds kind of insulting! Maybe if you'd said something more like "I hope your day gets better." *grumbles*
There is entirely too much pain going on right now. I have awful migraine and back pain and chest pain, and Keeper is having all manner of ow as well.... even Archi wasn't having too good a day when he left for work this morning. Fortunately it is Thrusday. (Except not fortunately for me, because I was supposed to go apple-picking and I'd really been looking forward to it!) Archi is off tomorrow, and Keeper's weekend starts the day after.
Also tomorrow we get to start moving things downstairs into the first-floor apartment. We'll probably start with stuff that's in the outside storage, and a few smaller things from the kitchen. Probably the rice cooker and the big bag of rice.
Ow.
OK, I'm gonna go take my headache out on Hyrule Warriors now.....

@miakakiri: I hope your pain goes away soon @[email protected]

I really need to bring forward and acknowledge and thank and freaking CELEBRATE how awesome the mods at DCTP are because elsewhere...they aren't as good. Like I mean, they're not bad and there's no problem with them, it's just I think the 'really quick take no sh**' vibe of the DCTP mods really spoiled me.

As in, whenever there was a problem at DCTP the mods would almost immediately swoop in and deal with it. But elsewhere it takes a lot longer. There was a thread literally titled "And the worst pairing in the history of anime and manga goes to". I'm not even joking. Like...here at DCTP that thread would have been taken down pretty much immediately or at least edited to be less bashy. But nope - it took ninteen days for that thread to close, even though the OP had consistently shown they weren't going to actually discuss with people and were just there to bash

The reason I'm bringing it up is because they started a different thread under the guise of discussing something else, but their first post is still seething with their hate. I am seriously appalled, shocked, and disappointed that this user has not been banned yet.

I've literally only been on 2 forums in the past 4 years pretty much. There's a good reason I stick to this one.

In general DCTP is some bizarre anomaly on the internet.

I think this is why I have a hard time getting to enthused any time I join a new forum. None of it feels as close and well-kept as DCTP xp Might be why so many of us are still here even though they can no longer offer us translations and frankly I don't think I'm the only one who's a bit done with the manga >_> Like, wake me up when we're going into the finale arc, y'know?

Today's bad story: turns out my netbook hard drive is so borked that putting it through a wall couldn't actually break it worse. This lil shit is only eighteen months old. Hex's hard drive is four years old and it still works just fine. WTF.

I think the main reason I stuck around because DCTP is a close family and not too large community. I always tend to feel lost on other forums.

Ugh. Packing is painful. No, I don't mean that it's annoying or emotionally painful to put things in boxes to carry down the stairs to the new apartment. I mean that it literally hurts to do all the up-and-down motions associated with putting things into boxes to get carried downstairs. At least I don't have to do the carting downstairs myself. Family and friends are all well aware of my mobility issues. This morning my brother came over to 'play elevator'. This meant that I was upstairs tossing things in boxes and Keeper was downstairs deciding where to put things. It worked OK when I was sitting in the back closet (where the ceiling is too low to permit standing anyway) tossing the last few things into boxes. Not so much out in the main room, where things were on the floor and I was not (floor is dusty and I didn't want to sit on it). Not really looking forward to spending tomorrow on the rest of the little bits of packing. There isn't a whole lot left, except for the refrigerator. Oh, and stuff in the bathroom and the clean clothes that forgot to get taken out of the dryer. Also there are a few things left in the kitchen cabinets.
I want to go watch Movie 18 and forget that I'm supposed to be working on the move. I wish I could just do the whole 15-minutes-a-day thing and get my packing done that way. Only we didn't know until Friday that we'd need to be out by Wednesday.....

Every time I click the "new posts" button for this thread, it takes me to 1-3 pages BEFORE the new post. Even though I check this place every time a new post shows up. What the hell, forum? :-\ And it appears to be JUST this thread. I haven't noticed it on any others.
