If I had hidden his posts then a) I wouldn't have felt like I was trying to like him (and I felt that was kind of important) and b) I wouldn't have found out they'd broken up yet and knowing me I would have left some insensitive comment on my friend's page about how he hadn't "liked" any of her statuses in a while or something.

Well it's clear from his dis like of Baldur's Gate he had no taste and there is something deeply wrong with him anyway.

After a conversation with my friend her exact words were "Defriend him. Defriend him so hard."

Eh, I'm not really too bothered. It's a deliberately over-the-top reaction. I enjoy it, but horses for courses and all that jazz.

It basically means "what is suitable/preferable for one person may not be suitable/preferable for another person". I believe it comes from the idea that different tracks may be better for some horses - surface on the race track, length of the race track or the shape of the track.

Confession: I only just realized why my palms were always sweaty when I saaw him. Am I really that clueless that I need an episode of The Big Bang Theory to explain it to me? :oops:
So, yeah. I guess I was lying when I said I didn't like him, only I didn't know it at the time.

Sounds exactly like me. I had no clue what the hell I was doing in high school socially until my senior year...at which point, well, it was too late to really do anything about it. Same thing in college...no clue how the hell to do anything except sit in my dorm or on the quad until my senior year.

And now that I've finally got a girlfriend and some sense of how to actually be in a relationship...unsurprisingly, this is my fourth year out of college. Thankfully, this time my life doesn't have an arbitrary upheaval point in May.

I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm only pretending to be an adult because people treat me like one. I still feel like a twelve-year-old. Don't make me go shopping and to the DMV and care about the economy! I want to play with my toy ponies and put my hair in pigtails and pretend I'm at Hogwarts!

I'm slowly learning that one. I mean, at eighteen I can't even begin to call myself an adult. But sometimes I'll think back to decisions my parents made when I was younger, and realize that it wasn't because of ineffable wisdom, it was just "Oh fuck. I have no idea what to do with this insane, furious child of mine, but I have to do something. Uhhhhh GO TO YOUR ROOM."
uhhhh fuck.

I think that "people who think they know what they're doing when they don't" is my personally definition of a child. Adulthood is throwing your hands in the air and saying "Welp, I have no fuckin' idea."

It's not just that. It's knowing that you have no idea what's going on nor any clue what to do next.. but sucking it up and making a choice anyway, and dealing with the consequences later, no matter how fucked up said consequences are.

Having just hung out with a ten-year-old, I think "pretending you know what you're doing when you have no clue" is a great description of at least one child, and at least two arrogant parents.

My coworkers are very tight but in a way that gives me the uh oh feeling. There are 10 of us on my team and 8 of us eat lunch together on a daily basis. It's an expected part of working in my office. It's all women aged 25 - 34 (except for me at 22)- the older married women try to live vicariously through the younger. It's a weird relationship. One of my bosses just sent all of the younger contingent a link to a Boston Globe blind dating site insisting we participate, for instance. But at the same time, the few times I have mentioned dates, there is SO much judgment.

I also am objectively the least attractive, quietest person in my office and manage to get the most dates. Therefore, I tend to think the judgment is more a cover for jealousy, but no one takes my very good dating advice. :P

I used Wikipedia as a reference all through high scool. My teacher never asked where I got my information, and I'm pretty sure some of it was wrong.

In the same vein, my computer didn't lose the end of my friend Catherine's Cradle essay. I forgot to finish it before it was due.

I was a better student than I sound. :oops:

Confession: I don't know why I blamed the guy in the Red Sox hoodie for pushing me into the display rack. He didn't do it; I did it on my own. I just saw him standing there all helpfully, and... yeah.

For clarification, I didn't blame him to his face. It was more of a "Hey, I'm sorry for what happened back there, but you remember the guy in the hoodie? He was only helping because he pushed me."

I realized halfway through the conversation with that very friendly guy that he had me confused with someone else. I should have corrected him. But did I? Of course not; it amused me too much.
I still see him every so often, but he hasn't spoken to me since. I wonder if he realized what happened?
