    I agree; I see a lot less of that these days. What I do see is two things: (1) all lower case with no punctuation, and (2) people who don't cross-check what autocomplete and autocorrect come up with. I used to work with someone who would send texts where she always accepted the first autocomplete suggestion without checking. Her texts were unreadable. Every time one of us in the office got a text from her, we'd have a conference to try to figure out what she meant.

    I dislike dealing with people who don't know how to write a simple business email. It should be brief and friendly, not two or three uncapitalized sentence fragments of brusque communication. Maybe typographic sensitivity needs to be introduced to business classes. Am I mistaken, or did most of us have "how to write a letter" in addition to "extracting sentiment from context" in about the third grade?

    The Australian version of Mitt Romney just got elected to be Australia's Prime Minister.

    Not happy.

    Whine: Professional, local news outlets don't know how to proofread, correct errors, or follow a logical story structure for their printed or online content. What are they learning while obtaining their journalism instruction, if not journalism?

    Remind myself not to panic and say something dumb. Note to self, just because I am frustrated with BF now does not mean I am always frustrated with him. I am angrier at myself. I do not need to go "screw this, I'll move out" or anything related, because I am happy here, and I need to learn to not plan my ability to study on having the house to myself. I am angrier at myself for making stupid excuses and for procrastinating all day, not at BF for deciding not to go out this evening.

    Need to chill.

    *Nothing* has gone according to plan so far today! All three kiddos were late, I had to go back to the elementary school bc I forgot it was picture day and didn't send money, and then coach called and cancelled my hours this morning bc she isn't feeling well. I was really looking forward to working w her, and now have to squeeze it in tomorrow around my time w my regular instructor.

    At a total loss for what to do with myself in the four hours between now and my lesson w Standard pro, which is ridiculous, bc I never have enough minutes in my day.

    Got an email from one of the study coordinators in a clinical trial in which I am enrolled (to make dolla dolla bills for lessons). Apparently I can't do the study because the principal investigator is also my professor and its a conflict of interest. Which is all well and good but means I'm out $160 I was counting on for lessons this month.

    Yikes, those can get infections that can travel. You may end up having to have it extracted if you don't take care of it sooner rather than later.

    Do please take care of it. You are the only one here whom I have actually met personally. Despite that fact, this is something that is very important and that you need to take care of. Do please take care of yourself.

    Lesson time goes by way too fast. Also, there aren't enough hours in my day.

    You gotta do it. Take it from a dentistry veteran. You name it, if it involves dentistry up to an including having your jaw broken and relocated, I've had it done. :rolleyes:

    Once in awhile, I look up and spot frightening trends within society's subcultures that worries me, but that I can't do anything about. It's alarming and discouraging to see so many otherwise intelligent, decent, even likeable people so seemingly brainwashed to the point that their inability to grasp the obvious is almost offensive. They don't question what they're being fed, they just go on and propagate shallow ignorance for the sake of being validated by the rest of the group. They don't even realize that they belong to specific demographics that are frequently targeted and exploited as long as they get some validation from it. I don't think they want to see it, maybe. I want to say that I'm glad they're happy so long as they aren't hurting anyone, so I guess schisms exist for a reason, and as long as the people on either side of the divide are happy doing what they're doing, that's all that matters. The problem isn't with them, it's with me for having difficulty accepting that, and I don't know why. I'm struggling with no small degree of frustration to be a better person about things like this, and I'm not so sure I've made any progress.

    20 minutes until my nose piercing...and I'm terrified. I'm feeling nauseous and about ready to bolt for the hills.
    I want this...I'm just really bad with needles...and pain...
