They seem to get worse with each test.

Yes, they definitely do.  So glad I'm done with that, but I'm still ashamed over how badly I was freaking out that day.

I can understand freaking out a bit leading up to taking the test, but freaking out while waiting a few hours for the score is weak sauce.  Anyone that prepped and practiced decently well should have a pretty good idea, within a few points, of how they did.  I'm always baffled by the people who end up with a score ~10 points lower than their claimed practice test average who also thought they did really well after the test. 


I'm fairly certain that these people "practiced" by leisurely going through sections.  Maybe they even timed them, but took long breaks in between.  When my friend was PTing, she was in the mid-170s and ended with a 166.  Even she admitted that her practice sessions were pretty much BS and weren't a good gauge of where she'd end up.

its worse i think because they dont have the illusion of a stable economy, so every point will make a difference; and they know it.

that said....::laughs anyway::

So true.

I will offer a random anecdote in the interest of contributing a post:

Today I went to a chiropractor for the first time in my life and I learned that my spine is seriously messed up.  They did a scan and showed me the pictures, so I'm fairly certain they aren't lying.  Awesome news to receive 2 months before I lose health insurance.

Has anyone here been to a chiro?  Did it help?

I don't trust them.  We read a case about one that tried to cure eye cancer or something...needless to say it didn't work

I went to a chiropractor once and it felt great when they did their magic but it only lasted a day or so. They are good at treating the symptoms but not the cause. And blue, that was one of my favorite cases because I really pondered why someone would believe the chiropractor when their child had eye cancer. I mean I usually don't go to the oncologist for my misaligned back.

Hmmmmm...I tend to feel that alternative medicines are actually better at treating the cause than the symptom but certainly docs are better equipped to handle many things.  The problem is that I get vertigo sometimes, and there isn't really a cure or great medicine I can take.  I've been getting it a lot more frequently over the past two weeks, and it completely interferes with my day and my ability to function.  I've been reading about people with vertigo who go to chiros and it fixes them, but I also feel like this place is going to suck up a ton of my time and money.  I guess I'll try it and see how it goes.

I can't stand that scene in Castaway when he takes out his tooth


OMG I was just thinking about this scene the other day.  It's so unsettling.

Why does working make me so tired?!?! I just feel absolutely beat down tired by 6pm every day.

It's the worst.  I used to toss and turn when I went to bed.  Now I hit the pillow and pass out within 5 minutes.

Yesterday I went to the gym in the morning, meaning I was up at 5:15am.  Usually I can function throughout the day when I do this, but yesterday I was at work until 9pm and I was pretty much delirious by the time I left.  But I'm getting a head start on the holiday weekend so today is my Friday :)

How are you liking the job??

Sigh. Good news and bad news. I officially have my degree and my diploma is in the mail. But a couple friends just got turned into the Honor Code Office   :'(

That really sucks. Yet, I remain shocked that anyone who is gay would go to your school. It just seems like it would be such a soul-crushing experience to repress a big part of who you are or to live in secret so that you can actually graduate. One of my dear friends did it and from what he says, he was miserable the entire time.

+1  I can't think of anything worse than having to hide who you are.  It's just ridiculous that the BYU honor code so specifically isolates homosexuals.  I'm really sorry, VB.

I find it amazing that no one at Harvard caught him for so long.  A basic Google search would have probably taken him down when they realized he never did any of the things he said he did when he applied for previous grants.  But thank god he was caught and didn't take away a Rhodes or Fulbright award from someone who actually deserved it.

The text just looks so much bigger now.  I feel like I'm reading a book in extra large print.  But the interface looks nice.

It's seems too long since I mentioned that Arizona is a shithole and I'm glad to no longer live there. Just putting that out there.

If I remember, I may just C&P this daily for a reminder.


ION: Done. Holler!

Yay!!  Congrats.
