I spent my whole last year like that. Regretting it now, of course.

If it wasn't on one to let me play some kind of game of some sort! I am a gaming nerd too. Not so much these days but back in the day before I had internet, that's what I spent a lot of my time doing.
Back in school, my favourite subject was history. I liked Science alright until that Science teacher I mentioned. It was one of my best subjects but then I failed it a couple of times because of her.
I only had Geography in middle school and it took the place of history. We had geography one year, history the next. I really liked it but I didn't get enough time in there, I don't think, to really appreciate it.

That too! I've lost my ID several times (and as I type this...I'm not entirely sure where my ID is...I'm gonna need that on Sunday. ) and it results in my tearing apart of the room, then organising again. But the second I lose something is when it becomes a mes once more because ya move things around and stuff gets piled up.
Cool. I'd send you some stuff, but I imagine dialup would make that difficult.

Ah, yeah, before I had the Internet I used to play computer games a fair bit; mainly just simulation games like SimCity, though. Pretty much don't touch it now. God, I remember the early days of high school when I'd nerd it up with my sim games and geography stuff. I've always been the Humanities guy - history, sociology, politics, theology, anything under that umbrella really. I've always been disappointed with how poorly geography is taught in many schools; I think it is tremendously important to know about the world around you, both the physical world and the social world.

Oh god, I fear losing my passport. So I've made a point of designating a specific spot for it and always putting it back! I'd be screwed if I lost that. Some stuff like that, I make a point of always knowing precisely where it is.

It's perfectly fine. I believe you. Thank you again, btw.

I've intentionally ignored that. It will aggravate me too much, and I've learnt that arguing on EYKIW just is not worth it. If somebody thinks an album should sound like a dog's breakfast and U2 can do no wrong, then I see any conversation as futile as there will be no give-and-take, no willingness to even see the opposing perspective.

The best part is that the caption would indicate that Bono is, in fact, Bryan Adams.

They don't know their right from left, or their right from wrong.

I see some Milo Kerrigan in the picture.

I prefer it when someone goes with me but if no one does, sometimes I won't even do it, I'll put it off until either of my siblings wants to go for a walk and have them walk with me or something like that.

I have had moments where I've felt shy like that and wished someone would say hi to me. Quite often, actually.
Oh, I know what you mean - I felt that sort of awkwardness before I moved out of home. Getting my own place has certainly been a good thing in regards to stuff like that. But it's not without its difficulties either; pros and cons, I suppose. And being by yourself is sometimes not the wisest idea when you're feeling down, as there's nobody else to snap you out of negative cycles and distract you.

And yeah ... it's funny how nobody ever does, eh? Ah well.

Shit, I should be going, I don't want to get too little sleep tonight. Well, I'll spend a few minutes more here, anyway.

Despite my efforts to add some drunkpost fun to the Superthread, I will have to do the same too. Just because I wanted to do things earlier on tomorrow.

Battle of the lyricists: Milo Kerrigan vs 2000s Bono. Who is superior?

You know my answer. At least Milo makes me react positively.

I have an early afternoon meeting with Centrelink bastards because ... I don't even fucking know. Apparently telling the system that I'm legally blind and a full-time student still requires that I need some job capacity assessment before they'll give me the blind payment. I don't even see what the fucking relevance is. The blind payment is for those who are legally blind. It is not means tested. I am legally blind. I can has moniez plz?

But that's bureaucracy for you.

Yes, but Bono gives me an excuse to say "Fuck Yahweh" on a regular basis.
