One of my favorite pairs of jeans has just tore open. Now there is giant tear in the crotch area. Nothing I can do will fix it. f*ck. 

 

I heard they're casting for a gender reversed version of Basic Instinct down in the West End. 

 

You should totally audition.

I want to complain about getting a license in this country. It will have cost me 4300 € / 6100 $ / 3650 £ , and I have had no driving lessons outside the ones required by the government(and that is without the fee the public roads administration will charge for my actual test, around 300 $), meaning that for most, it will cost much much more.

 

Not only is this a ridiculous amount of money to be expected from a 17-year old, but due to driving schools' opening hours, it has cost me many many school hours as well. This has become such a problem that I might even FAIL subjects because of high absence, which could also mean I won't get INTO THE SCHOOL NEXT YEAR! So that's a lot of money out my pocket already, but guess what? a parking space is 617 € / 856 $ / 510 £ which means more money out of my pocket.

 

"what about public transport?" The pts here is unredeemingly sh*tty. Always late, always full, always smelly and unfcomfortable, always noisy and always impractical. the PTS will cost you roughly the same(though slightly less) as a parking space.

 

So ultimately it's a choice between what is the lesser evil, and to whom. To me, though pricey and risky, I have to drive a car. Words cannot describe the feeling of frustration and anger when trying to haul a big hollowbody archtop guitar in a hardcase with me on the bus, in addition to two school bags for books, pc, and gym clothes, all while attempting to communicate with an angry and ill-mannered driver whose skills in either english or norwegian can only be described as non-existant.

...And german...

 

I wouldn't mind learning German in high school. I already got my foreign language credits for graduation, though. I took Spanish since my school only had two foreign languages - Spanish and French. But yeah, German seems like a pretty interesting language. But then again, I'm kind of a Germanophile.

I was going to take German next year, but the teacher is retiring which leaves me Spanish and ASL. I chose to take ASL. German was fun, apparently, as in the class they were always making German food, but I've heard that it's a difficult language to learn. I'm just mad that the teacher is retiring.

German's pretty easy for me, but then again, English is a Germanic language, so it's easier to learn than Spanish for me, which is a romance language (if I recall correctly). I always learn better in a class environment than individually, though, but I know some German words relating to trains, war, and swears, mostly learned from my ex or "New Kids".

Well apparently I can't get my credit score or a credit report because I don't have a credit history. Which I know is false because I tried to apply for a home depot charge card a while back and got declined which I'm pretty sure would effect it.

Here is the advice you need: http://www.investope...dit-history.asp
Since you were rejected you have the right to insist on a credit report to find out why you were rejected, although we can guess.

You wanna know what really grinds my gears? Out here in California we have had 3 crappy snow years in a row. This season had pretty bad conditions all winter, and the one big storm we did get in February was stupidly warm and came down as both rain and snow. Luckily, we had a freak snowstorm at the end of March that dumped two feet of soft powder in one night and I got to ski in it, but still, these crappy snow seasons are pissing me off. We better have something epic next winter to make up for it.

Summer, it's been so long... I miss you so much! Baby come back  :/. I miss the nights where I had no worries, could just stay up until dawn and sit on my Xbox going on gaming marathons. 4 more weeks, which is 4 weeks too much for me...

When you try your hardest in an attempt to get people to understand something and your efforts are as meaningless as asking a brick wall to move. It seems as though you can try all you want to get them to realize that perhaps they are doing something bad yet it just flies right over their heads. All I can say in a desperate attempt to get people to understand is that things are not always as they seems and that sometimes people do things that they don't necessarily want to do in order to make some other people realize that the picture they see may have a deeper meaning or interpretation than that of which you see on the first glance.

It's normally easier for English speakers to learn basic German words because of the shared Germanic roots of the languages, however once you get into more advanced vocabulary Spanish definitely becomes easier to learn because of the Latin influences meaning that higher-level words in English are usually pretty similar to a rough Spanish equivalent.

 

German grammar is almost certainly more difficult to learn too, but I've always believed that the easiest language to learn is the one that you are most motivated to learn, rather than pigeon-holing languages into 'difficult' and 'easy' brackets.

I was rejected because I didn't have any credit history. And apparently getting rejected didn't affect my credit history so I guess I still don't have one

You know hayfever right?

 

Someone needs to punch it in the f*cking balls.

 

I get this bollocks every year, one of my eyes goes all itchy and red and looks like a black eye and it goes all manky at night and I end up looking like more of a psychopath than I already do.

 

Summer is f*cking lame as sh*t. I hope it dies.

 

Also, food.

 

I f*cking hate it as well.

 

Someone invent that Taco-Bell meal pill from Demolition Man already.

Warning: V section rant ahead...

I have no words to describe some of the massive idiots that constantly lurk within the V section. The idiocy has died down within the recent months but some of the idiots have stayed and have gotten much, much worse. To be honest, it gets annoying. You could say that I could just ignore that section but I like to post there. It is interesting half of the time. I mean if you say something negative these contributors of pure idiocy will try to rip you and if you point out their hypocrisy they will try their hardest to nitpick you just to find anything possibly hypocritical that you may have said. And then they'll create silly disrespect lists out of spite just to try and get back at you. It's pathetic really, when will the section be free of this kind of stuff?

You may already do this, but drink plenty of water, you're probably a little perpetually mildly dehydrated, not enough to make you need medical attention but enough that your skin isn't getting the required amount.  Also get some sunlight to aid Vitamin D production, and maybe take a supplement if you're not getting enough of the vitamin natural through food.  Also do you have any damp/mould in your house as this can cause skin complaints?

Yeah I think i may have Diabetes which leads me to being chrinically dehydrated so i am going to start drinking more water and see if that helps. I also live in MN so it's highly likely that I have low Vitamin D. And considering the Age and pretty much neglected state of my apartment building it wouldn't surprise me if the building was infested with mold. 

 

So everything you pointed out make sense :)

You ever think about getting your suspensions confirmed by an endocrinologist?  If you have diabetes you should know to what degree and how to treat and maintain.  *Not trying to sound preachy or anything.  You don't want to have to lose a toe or foot down the line if you don't need to. 

 

 

I'm pretty grumpy.  For a many reasons I don't relay my job stuff that has me grumpy, but I'll just say that me and my boss haven't spoken in about 3 weeks.

Yeah I will go and get it checked out soon enough. Once I get everything sorted out and get some health insurance that will actually cover stuff like blood tests and specialist visits without leaving me an $800+ bill afterwards. 

 

The thing is that I am pretty much 99.9% sure I have it. I display the majority of the signs and literally every single person on my mom's side of the family has it.

I agree with you 100%, I like the V / Online section but it's a bit annoying now. I know that I'm not a good example but... some people there should grow up ffs.
