Rave: Son is graduated and all are back home safe and sound, albeit a little tired.
While I love watching those storms, they cause extreme spikes in the electricity. We've lost cd players, electronic coffee pots, computers, etc.
I don't shower during those storms. The previous owners of the house didn't take care of it at all and I'm not 100% sure it's grounded properly. I've already been electrocuted a few times and would rather be paranoid. At least while living in this house.
Bio comprehensive final. Yuck.
Anybody love ecology and want to explain to me what a logistic growth model is?
Maybe I should dust off my book and see what I can find. I depend too much on my notes sometimes.
I want to give up already I'm of no use right now...
There's nothing worse than someone honestly believing and trying to tell you can't do something, especially when you know they're wrong!
I'm 15, turning 16 late June. I'm graduating a year early, currently I am a sophomore. This means that I will be graduating at age 16, and therefore moving out at age 16 as I intend to move to Indy before I begin college. (Well, if all goes as planned, if I get accepted to Butler for pharmacy). My friend, a stubborn ENTJ, is insisting that I won't be able to move out because she had tried to move out when she was 16 and failed. Newsflash, hon, I'm not you. Also, you were trying to move out without any financial help - I will most likely have some help from my parents. I'm actually currently arguing with this dreadful ENTJ on facebook as I type this, and while I try to justify my position (for what reason!? why should I have to explain to her that I will be successful when she can just see it for herself!?) she keeps at it with the, "I couldn't do it. Good luck but this is a bad idea. You're not gonna make it." !!! Oh my word!
Now, I understand. Moving out is sort of a big deal, but honestly I think I can handle it. I've realized it takes initiative, and it's not like I have some mental disability, thank you very much? I'm a diligent worker, I'm smart with my money, I know how to cook (rather well, if I do say so myself), and clean in a jiffy (thanks to my ever-lazy, loving parents). So what's the problem here? What's the problem with a young person trying to make a difference? (I'm going to pharmacy school to get my doctorate and be a pharmacologist.)
Oh, the problem is that you don't want to face the fact that I was able to do something with more conviction and dedication than you were able to! Well, deal with it. Sometimes you just have to persevere at things you want, but you wouldn't know that!
Alrighty, sorry for the mixed 'you's' and 'she's'. I switched between talking to the lovely people on MBTI and the Debbie Downer.
I feel a bit relieved now ^_^
Rave: Skated on the new set-up tonight. New bearings and regrooved Vanguards. On the 'outside', I just skated around the floor. On the 'inside', I was like OH HELL YES!!!!! Smooth as glass and fast as jet fuel. No question about it; when my ESFJ skating partner gets back from his vacation he is going to find out real quick that he's now got real competition. Should be interesting.
Another rave: Had my relatively recently new coworker take one of the various online tests. I knew there was a reason I liked her so much. She's a fellow SJ (ISFJ, to be more precise). She and I are islands though ... everyone else at the job are NF's EXCEPT the two of us.
Third rave: Chicken pot pie tonight.
