Do you wear glasses or contacts? I sometimes wear glasses when I’m driving at night, but I otherwise don’t need to wear them.
Do you have/had braces? Yep, I had them for the first two years of high school. I was able to get them off just a week before my cousin’s wedding.
What is your fashion style? I’m not sure if I have a style, but I tend to wear dark, muted colors (lots of olive greens and maroons/dark reds). I tend to make an effort to dress nicer. Like, unless I’m exercising, you will never find me in tennis shoes.
What kind of student are/were you? I was the student who showed up to class no matter what, but hardly paid attention (especially in college, and especially in boring classes). I also never studied, hardly read for my classes, and barely took notes, but still managed to graduate magna cum lade. I was also fairly manipulative and was able to convince professors to let me skip certain assignments, sometimes important assignments like papers. I once convinced a professor to cancel the final exam for that class. I would cut corners at every possible turn, but still do the work. Please don’t follow my example, I took a lot of risks. It might not work out for you the same way it did for me.
What are/were your favourite subjects? In high school it was English, and History, and I majored in Linguistics and Folklore/Mythology in college.
What are your favourite shows? Oh, I don’t watch a lot of TV anymore and the TV I do watch is either home improvement shows or competition shows. Ummm, let’s just go with Face Off, because I’ll watch that every season.
What are your favourite movies? Howl’s Moving Castle, The Cat Returns, and The Hunchback of Notre Dame
What’s your favourite pastime? Reading mostly, whether it’s actual books or fanfiction.
What’s your dream job? Librarian
How many countries have you visited so far? One, I went to Japan as an exchange student my freshman year of high school.
my as exams start on tuesday and i'm not even worried. i'm not prepared and have hardly studied and i don't even care what grade i get. fail or not. i know that's awful, especially as i'll disappoint my parents, but i've realised that academia is just not for me
ah well… if you’re happy with that, then that’s fine. :)
So my ldr girlfriend and I try to talk whenever we can. Most of the time it's her that's busy (I have basically 3 friends and study hardly ever). Her parents make her study constantly and as a result we usually can't talk most of the time. Today I wanted to talk all day (I always want to talk) but she was unavailable for some reason or another and I accepted that. I went to play some video games with my sister and said I couldn't talk for a bit. She thinks that means I was ignoring her. What do?
I think that this is just a result of some miscommunication! It’s okay for you to spend time without her, and vice versa.
Wilhelm and I have had similar problems in the past, and I know how much it sucks not to have the time you want with your girlfriend. It’s really helped us to sit down at the beginning of the week, see where we’ll have overlapping time, and make sure to plan around that so that we can have some sort of date night each week. It sounds a little bit tedious or forced, but it guarantees that we end up having some time together despite our busy lives and gives us something to look forward to.
I hope you’re able to resolve the issue and spend lots of time together in the future! Feel free to keep us updated.♥
