Meds

I'm about to start up on Paxil for depression (which my brother is already on), and I've been wondering if any other TIFers are taking any medications for various problems. If so (and I don't care if it's legal or illegal), what are you taking for it?

Also, what do you think about the medical system/facilities in your country?

People Who Secretly Have No Life

07 October 2010 - 11:24 PM

Who else here has friends at school or other places, but really doesn't hang out with them? It's also referred to as having "no life". Personally, that's me. I'm very secret as to what I do behind closed doors. I have a lot of friends and other places, but I don't hang out with them. If my friends invite me to do something with them, I'll say sure, but then just not pursue it and just not actually do anything. (Example: I didn't smoke weed with my friend over the weekend at his house, but I said I was busy at the last minute, and now he thinks I'm just not big on weed.) I might make excuses, or imply that I'm doing something over the weekend. In reality, I sit in my room, browse forums, listen to music, play guitar, etc. I don't ask girls for their numbers (or ask guys; I'm straight), or don't call/text people often, even if I have their number.

This weekend I'm going to see The Expendables (in 3-D) with two friends of mine. I'm sixteen still, but my one older friend is driving us to the mall and he's going to buy the tickets. Either that or we'll just buy tickets to something else and then go to it. Meh. It's the first time in about a year or two that I've actually done something on the weekend. Maybe it'll get me out of my rut.

Anyone else, or am I unique?

Getting in Shape Over the Summer

23 May 2010 - 09:30 PM

I had to be timed for a one-mile run in gym class and in ROTC. On my gym class's test, I got an 8:34, but two weeks later on the ROTC Cadet Challenge, I got an 8:12. I think I've improved from the start of the year (10:00 mile, lol). I plan to start getting in shape by running/going to the gym, because I have a YMCA membership that I haven't even used yet.

How often should I run? Every day, every other day...? One time I ran six miles in one day, and my legs hurt so badly the next day that it was ridiculous.

Could I possibly get to a 6:00 (or even... better?) by running and exercising over the summer?

Should I work out every day? What exercises would you recommend for both strength and endurance training? I have honestly no idea (right now, that is) on what a good workout would consist of.

Lastly, my diet. What should I be eating? Should I take supplements (protein powder or whatever... 'roids?), and are they expensive?

Can anyone refer me to some good sites for these things, as well as informing me? ^^ Can't thank you enough.

Age: 16 (just turned on March 27)
Height: 5' 8"-5' 9" (173 cm)
Weight: 145 lbs (66 kg)

My Brother and I Recorded Ourselves Rapping

28 April 2010 - 10:45 PM

My brother asked if I wanted to sing a rap song with him, and then post it online. I didn't hesitate to say "yes", and we immediately jumped into production. I have chosen the moniker of "Furious Pineapple" (or, in the recording, "Furious-pineapple-saft" -- "Furious Pineapple Juice"). My brother chose, the song "Beautiful" by Eminem, despite my pleas for a different song. If you wish, you can also check out him (and only him) singing the song "Love Story" by Taylor Swift.

This is all for fun. :D Not seriousness. I laugh so hard whenever I listen to the recording.

Rate away!

American Education and Foreign Language Learning

01 March 2010 - 08:44 PM

Basically, America's dropped the ball on teaching our public a second (or even third) language through the public school system. In foreign countries, such as Germany, students are first taught a foreign language as young as ten, and continue learning that foreign language until fluent... and then they start a third language. In America, we usually start learning our first foreign language at age 12-14, and even then we're nowhere near fluent by the end of our foreign language education. In college, we're only required to take one year of a foreign language, and that is only as much as two years of a high school foreign language course (about enough to adequately order at a restaurant, but not converse with someone meaningfully, fully, or well).

This irks me very much, especially because I love learning foreign languages. Right now, I'm pursuing both German and Spanish. People think that I know the entire dictionary of words, but far from it... I just know much more than them (which is still a meager amount >.<). When I see my classmates attempt Spanish or German, they often mispronounce words, misspell words, and/or misuse grammar/words. My classmates also rarely recite their own linguistic verses, but rather take to using learned phrases from the textbook or just reading out of the textbook itself. Also, a note: this occurs in classes for the college-bound and would-be-professionals.]

However, you could argue that it isn't important for Americans to learn a foreign language. I don't think that it's particularly important, but that it's still a very useful ability to have, gives your brain a lot of exercise, and helps you to better understand language/syntax/grammar (especially in your native language). I think that the path to fluency in a foreign language is one that everyone should travel upon.

Edit: I get this topic in my head every time I see a TIFer who says that they're from another country. I think that it's annoying in how there are these teenagers from Sweden, Germany, France, et cetera, who can converse in English so very well, and yet I can't (nor do I know anyone who can) converse in a non-native language so fluidly and well. I certainly don't sound like a native Spanish-speaker when I talk in Spanish online, nor in German.
