    Why Banana Republic over H&M? Business formal usually means full suit. Not sure what your finances are like, but you should be able to get a decent one for 250-300, or a crappy one for 100 or so. It is useful to have one in your wardrobe as well, for miscellaneous fancy occasions. You'd want some nice shoes, a dress shirt, and a tie as well. When you say a full suit, do you mean a top and bottom from the same make and model, for lack of a better phrase? Is what I posted not a full suit because the jacket and pants are different styles, or is it because of the material or something else?

    I need a "business formal" outfit. I don't want to spend a lot of money buying one. I was looking around and I found these: http://www.hm.com/us/product/56484?article=56484-A http://www.hm.com/us/product/51618?article=51618-A Would the two of these together be business formal? Do you know of any better options?

    I met an Asian girl from New Zealand the other day and it reminded me of Wongtong.

    Yesterday I tried Googling whether or not clipping your nails in a room you share with someone else is a big deal. I was mostly looking because stepping on them or something might be annoying and I wanted to be considerate. I found a handful of results that were pretty much people getting violently upset that they saw another person clipping their nails. At first I thought it was meant to be satirical, but there were enough instances of this behavior for me to believe this is actually a pretty common view. The thing is, I never knew this. I was never taught that fingernails were an unholy abomination and I had always just clipped my nails in my bedroom. I also found people saying that brushing your hair was absolutely revolting. This is all news to me and, assuming this isn't some fad, I don't know how I hadn't heard of this until yesterday. Is grooming really considered disgusting? This all seems pretty counter-intuitive to me. How do you feel about personal grooming?

    I think I would prefer quarterly academic terms over semesters. I'm always really excited and ready to learn at the beginning of every semester, but by the end I lose interest in most of my classes and study poorly, if at all for my finals. I'm sure the same thing would happen with quarters, but I think it would be less pronounced if I took fewer classes with a higher frequency. I feel like I'd be a little more motivated to push myself through something I'm not that into if I knew I only had like 2 months left after the beginning of the term had passed and the novelty had died down. I'd also be able to focus more intensely on classes I'm more interested in because I wouldn't have as much unique stuff to distract me. If I had to guess, I'd say that ultimately it probably wouldn't make that big of a difference in my life either way. I'm sure I'd be anti-quarter if that's what my school used.

    Was that post edited? At the time I'm reading it, it looks like he said he hates that they don't paint the speed bumps and I interpreted it as him being upset that he damaged something of value belonging to another person. I agree though, [bleep] people who have nice things.

    Today I got a sandwich from a convenience store deli. It had a screw in it. I guess that's one way to start a new year.
  8. Top turn-based games? Genre doesn't matter; only criteria is you need to be able to fully enjoy it with a dim mind and sluggish reflexes Edit: Started [well-known snes rpg] on a whim and it lead to what was probably my most anticlimactic new year turnover yet. I started playing in 2015 and decided to take a break in 2016 HAHAHAHAHAHAAAA. Nah actually though I heard a big boom and thought it was a car accident, but I now realized that it was probably fireworks. Anyway, you can disregard this post because I guess I'll stick with [well-known snes rpg] for a while.

    I made a post on the 22nd about starting to feel sick and thinking it would last 6 - 7 days. I was right. I woke up feeling fine on the 28th, but then yesterday morning the sensation came back and now I'm where I was a week ago in terms of ailment. The weird part is that it's not like some sort of horrible diarrhea fever that keeps relapsing. It's just enough to make me absolutely miserable while still being able to function. My father has a history of really bad allergies that eventually lead to a bunch of giant polyps forming in his nose and him needing surgery, so hopefully this isn't his shit genes starting to come out in me. In the same post, I mentioned being done with finals and thinking I might have failed two courses. I got a B in and a B+ in the other. The best part is that my cumulative grade for both was well below 70%. Without trying to sound too pretentious, I guess that means I did above average, but that means the average for those classes was probably around 50% which doesn't really make me feel any better. At least I don't have to pay to take the classes again.

    Oh bother, I wasn't actually looking for advice. I think it's what the young people today call "venting" haha Anyway, I have a roof over my head and I'm getting food and utilities for free. I'm only here until mid-January. I'll be turning 24 in October, at which point I can declare independence for financial aid and the money I should get from uncle Sam will hopefully be more than the housing/food/insurance I'm getting from my parents. I just need to tough it out a little bit longer and then I can do my own thing. Edit: I weighed myself this morning and the scale read 208 pounds and change, which is still very overweight, but considering I haven't been this light since 2011 and I was somewhere between 270 and 280 earlier this year, I'm pretty content with it

    For Christmas, my parents gave my brother the weights (squat stands, bench, oly bar, some plates) I spent several hundred dollars on in 2013 for myself. The real kicker is that I now need to ask for my brother's permission to use his weights! Oh well. If I've learned anything from looking for advice online it's that I should cherish my family no matter what and stop being such an angsty teenager haha

    In case any of you were wondering, I ruined Christmas for my mother because I should have "chosen a better time to be sick" ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Done with finals. There's a nonzero chance I failed two of my classes, but at this point all I can do is wait and pray the curve carries me. Then my weird hybrid online/in person humanities elective starts tomorrow and apparently lasts 4 hours and then doesn't meet again until next year, at which point we meet 5 times/week for 4 hours/day, but some of it is online and I have no idea how that's actually going to work out. I also have that sensation in between my throat and nose I always get before I get sick and feel horrible for 6 or 7 days, but it doesn't always result in me being sick, so I'm trying extra hard to stay hydrated and clean.

    @Muggiw: That looks cool. It sounds kind of Ingress, which I had on my phone at one point, but never actually played, but that sounded cool and so does this @Saq: Suburbs @Rpg: That would be cool. PM if serious 2 finals down, 2 to go. The two I have left are by far the most important and most difficult of the 4. One is from 8 to 11, the other is from 12 - 3. On the first one, if there isn't a curve, I'll need a 91% on the final to pass the course (but my average is around the class average and I'm pretty sure there will be a curve). In an attempt to prepare myself for waking up that early, I took sleeping pills the last two nights. The first time was actually kind of incredible. Like I took them, then got a little sleepy maybe thirty minutes later, then I laid down and closed my eyes for a second and when I opened them it was 2 pm the next day. Then I took them again last night and I don't know what happened, but I felt really restless and I couldn't stop tossing and turning and I just felt pretty terrible overall. I woke up at 9 am this morning, so I'm hoping I'll manage to fall asleep before midnight.
