Nah, just chronic depression. It makes me a more effective 'tortured artist'

I was alright with her going since she reminded me of a girl I knew in real life. Plus teh love story with her and Sayid was just weird.


Ironically, this was probably the reason I had a crush on her. Since I'm far over that now, I don't think that even her reappearance would make me want to watch. It just kept getting weirder and weirder, without ever solving anything. I'm better off without the weekly aggravation.

And yes, the Sayid and her brother stuff was just off. It was her manipulative attitude that I was attracted to.

We must date the same people. Wanna go get drunk and tell stories?


You have NO idea. I've found a good one, but prior to that, I was a magnet for drama.

Yeeeeeah, for the most part I've dated the criminally insane. This is what I get for attempting to hold down a serious relationship with a girl in the 18-25 year old age bracket.

we're not all criminally insane. most of us aren't even insane... incidentally I have a cousin who's right up your alley if you decide to go to cornell. she's 25 years old, living at home with her parents, working 2 days a week (quit a couple jobs and moved home... previously she was mooching off her sister). she's tall, blonde, and athletic. quite pretty too. so sad that her mother raised both children to have NO LIVES

I just tended for a long time to gravitate towards the insane. Apparently, I am a male version of "the fixer."

Haven't heard it, but I suppose I could give it a listen. I did see Eddie Vedder when he sat in at a Springsteen concert a few years back...

If the tar didn't give it away. I love Eddie. The song is about learning to step back and stop trying to fix things all the time.

But yeah, girls don't really 'fix' guys as much as they consistently nag, and criticize, and refuse to have coherent arguements that don't involve them calling you ridiculous names like 'stupid' and running out the door at two o clock in the morning until your will is so drained that you just automatically default to saying whatever you think they want to hear, and censoring an ungodly amount of what you actually want to say or think or do just to make it through the day because your job is awful and the only thing you really could look forward to is coming home and hoping to get quietly drunk alone.

if this were the lsat you'd have gotten a 132. come on! you can't generalize based on just your experiences. I fight very coherently with my boyfriend, thank you. though sometimes I DO just want time alone and him trying to make things better just makes me cry and punch him, which he thinks is funny as I am pitifully weak.

I don't want to blare it in public, but it's actually much worse than coercion.

True, it's wrong of me to generalize outside of my own experiences. But it's hard as shit not to be bitterly pessimistic at this point :mrgreen:

Nah. I've been there so I know what it's like. I feel pretty lucky now, though!

To go off-topic (to waiting for fordham) for a moment -- does anyone have any idea how one's chances are if they apply FT, and then get WL, and submit for consideration to PT as well? (background 32y/o military service, currently employed (but would have to quit even for PT)). Given that I was obviously on the fence for FT and fit a more traditional PT profile (compare to a current UG hedging), I would think my chance has to be somewhat outstanding (all other things being equal).

I think your chances are relatively good - I think schools waitlisted a lot more people than normal because the cycle wasn't easily predictable. Just hang on there and you'll probably get it... though it may be in august. keep sending those locis and contacting the dean of admissions etc

I have a different impression. Last year, WL was used extensively is the rumor. This year, Dean Brown gave the impression that they overadmitted (during ASD), saying they were shocked at an "overwhelming response" to offers of admission. It's just conjecture, but convincing enough that I'm sweating the fact they haven't yet acknowledged my seat deposit.

so yeah, make other plans but still keep your fingers crossed.

also, +1 to dating crazy people.
