    I was personally hoping for a weekly edition, but you guys don't Rant enough.

    Anyways, inaugural Rant:

    Spoiler :

    Feel like absolute crap, first time in a while. Catalyst is my rhetoric class.

    Second in line to give a speech, sounds nice, I get it over with nice and early and don't have to worry. But no, instead I worry more after the speech than I do before I gave it. I have to sit through every single other speech in the class and realize what a crap job I did. I didn't look at the audience enough, I talked too fast, I didn't point out stuff on the board like I planned, I carried my paper up there even though I memorized it, and I watered it down to fit into 5 minutes even though others went on for 10 without issue. And then, one the second day, I get to see the one thing I thought made my speech unique stolen from me and then put into another speech, and she's lauded for it!

    Then the teacher decides to go up there and summarize his feelings and praise about each speech on the second day, except he only mentions the ones who went on the second day. I guess the people who went on the first day don't deserve any praise, or pat on the back, not even for going first. We get shrugged off.

    I just feel incredibly depressed and unappreciated right now. I put a ton of work into this speech only for it to make me feel like crap. I'm probably going to end up with a B, or a C, just because I didn't get a chance to look at how awful I did and tell myself not to do that, or just outright steal techniques. There goes chance of an A in this class, or a happy spring break.

    EDIT: This, and the fact that I feel ignored as well. Nobody really bothers to talk to me, or acknowledge me. I'm just the quiet kid who doesn't deserve any sort of attention. Just more fodder for loneliness.

    That's angry? That looks more like "pleased evil plot is succeeding beyond wildest dreams." WHAT A RIDICULOUS SMILEY! (had to rant...)

    My left ankle still hurts. I damaged it last year in May in Peru. Nothing specific, just put too much pressure on it over 5 days of crazy hiking. Some tendon in my foot just gave up or something and it's been healing very slowly.

    So now I can't go hiking until it's healed.. and it's healing just too slowly. I'm seeing a physio dude about it next week, but I really want it to just heal already.

    DISAPPOINTED$!$

    I have way too much stuff to do, and absolutely not enough time in which to do it.

    So I usually spend all my time, rather than getting anything done, worrying about how I don't have enough time.

    First off, title should have been "I DON'T LIKE FOOD ANYMORE!" with the following image:


    Anyhow, I had a group presentation today. Wound up giving it alone, because one of the guys was "sick" and the other doesn't speak very good English. The least they could have done was stand up next to me, make me feel less alone. I do feel kind of bad for not giving them more to work with, given that they're both ESL, but I still feel a tad ripped-off.

    Something more to waste my time on...

    Edit: perhaps of most interest to OT is Poland...
