    You might be better off dancing on your own or working with one of those advanced guys (for practice partnership). They may advertise that they want to practice 5x a week, but that stuff can be negotiated. Like you can compromise it to 3x a week. Because it's practice partnership, it's not a full commitment on either person. He could still keep an eye out for another available lady and you can take off when you have to for your work.

    I share a bathroom with two other people.

    Have only just realised that it's BF who keeps putting the toiler paper roll on the wrong way.

    Help I don't know if I can deal with this for the rest of my life

    (Only being a little facetious...)

    Mount the holder vertically.

    Either that or tear the whole roll into individual sheets and put them in an empty facial tissue box.

    You're welcome.

    I could never deal with anyone who cared about it that much my entire life :)

    If this is your only issue with BF, count your blessings. Really, it's just toilet paper, that in the end you're flushing away.

    Mostly joking...and he doesn't make a fuss when I turn it around. Counting all of my blessings.

    Woke up sick this morning :(

    Was really hoping that I'd manage to avoid the cold that's making the rounds at the studio and at work, but apparently that's not happening.

    *Sigh* Sometime I don't get the way people drive, and I'm not going to even try to understand it. I was driving home from college to run errands when a black truck came on my right side. We were parallel with each other, and I was going the speed limit. He apparently wanted to get into my lane, but I couldn't tell if due to our position. Instead of slowing down to get behind me, or goosing it to get in front of me, he proceeds to scare me out of the lane I'm in by shifting over to where I am. Of course, I'm afraid our sides will crash up against each other, so I jerk out of the lane. He gets in the lane I was in then proceeds to flip me off.

    Perhaps I should have been more aware. Perhaps I should have been the one to speed up or slow down. But come on, don't almost cause an accident by bullying me out of my lane, then acting as if I'm the one who almost caused it. :(

    Gripe of the day:
    Adults who take food into areas of someone's home they shouldn't, and then drop it all over the carpet and leave it there for someone else to pick up. Then, while I'm cleaning it up, they wander up and ask "What're you doing? Why?" Because I like to clean up after inconsiderate, uninvited jackasses, that's why, of course.

    And PS: Aura- People stink. They stink worse behind the wheel of a vehicle.

    this is one of those things that continues to worry me...as people get less and less social and more insular, they seem to objectify others...you stop being a human being and are just some dumba__ in their way...I see this increasingly in people not bothering to signal...then being po-ed because I can't read their minds...or in people punishing me for signaling by speeding up and not allowing me to switch lanes...and in a thousand other ways on and off the road...it's alarming....I worry about the direction of the world and the lack of civility....I truly do...and go ahead and call me granny now

    I hate trucks...used to drive to school down a road that was on a truck route, but on suburban road...trucks got crazy, changing lanes quickly, etc. Now I'm at the point that I'd rather get a speeding fine than sit next to a truck.

    Thank goodness I got paid today because I have to go find BF a birthday present and he just says he doesn't want anything! Say that one more time, and I'll buy you a kitten. And you really don't want that (because it will be mine)

    Why not treat him to dinner or some other favorite activity? I'm sure he would value the time spent with you.

    1. Kidney infection.
    2. Studio has turned into glorified daycare with kids crawling all over the place.
    3. People at the studio have serious case of self-entitled "Dance Mom-Zilla"
    4. My family has that one token parasite that wrecks things for other people and doesn't care.
    5. My cat has one of those "stop pickin' at it!" spots under her neck.
    Can't win for losing. Tomorrow's a fun day, though, so that's something. And I have a brownie.
