The battery life on my phone is really starting to get to me. Can't wait to see what new phones are out by fall (Note 8, Pixel 2, iPhone 8/X/Whatever).

Re: What are you thinking?

I really hate pre-paying for fuel.
I had one gas station that I always went to that I didn't have to pre-pay, but if they're changing it to pre-pay I guess I'm going somewhere closer.

So many assignments, so little time.

I can't believe February's already (pretty much) over, it still feels like January (to me).

Re: What are you thinking?

I am thinking of buying some IKEA shelves and accessories; replace the old stuff as it were. At the same time, I am still undecided about it. Depending on what I get, the delivery costs could be more than what the whole shipment is worth to begin with.

Re: What are you thinking?

I bought a new hookah today, because my old one was becoming really unsafe. It would randomly shift and it almost dump the coals on the floor one night! The new one is bright orange and I love it! Orange is one of my favorite colors.

Re: What are you thinking?

I am in university... and I'm in EC. That's my first time right now, yeah!
(Well actually no one is in my room, but the people could just walk in, so... for me it's a bit dangerous, but I just wanted to come here, since I couldn't be here yesterday ^^ )

Re: What are you thinking?

haha, i never posted on this thread before, though here's what i'm thinking.
i think i still can't over this guy i spend a lot of time mulling over. he gives me a lot of signs of him being interested and then kind of backs out whenever i bring up plans to meet him. I know he can be manipulative and inconsiderate, though everytime i forget about him, he finds a way to pop back into my life. as much as i want to get with him, i know he won't be the right guy for me, even though he's perfect in my eyes, and some issues that can be worked out.

Re: What are you thinking?

A minute ago I was so happy, since same-sex marriage was legalized here today, but now I'm just sad and angry, when I read some comments people wrote on a news article about a non-binary person

Re: What are you thinking?

I woke up with horrible cramps. The kind that makes you throw up. I hate when it's this bad, I even miss regular cramps. It's better now that I took painkillers but I have to lie down and keep myself warm or the pain will return. If this is hell already, what does giving birth feel like? I don't ever want to find out

So... apparently the guy I crushed on who used to work at my store, and which my ex-friend said didn't do dating/relationships, is now... in a relationship.

Steve Beshear gave a decent speech last night for the Democratic response to the Groper-In-Chief's dumpster fire.
