Write some romantic poetry and give it to her in a nice envelope.

Are you one of the singers on the board?

If so, record a short video of a serenade, and give it to her in a USB drive.

If not, record a short video of a serenade, and give it to her in a USB drive. I'm sure it'll get a good laugh out of her. :D

Well, we're getting evicted from this house for being late on the rent. Fun.

After I asked my crush if she said she didn't know me well enough, I haven't really had the balls to talk to her, mainly because I don't know what to talk about >.<

I really don't know. I even have facebook open, I could totally do it, but I don't know what to say...

Probably best to get over her for now. Maybe you'll get another chance later, but that's a maybe, and one you shouldn't bet on.

Quote from: Chesterton
For, in order that men should resist injustice, something more is necessary than that they should think injustice unpleasant. They must think injustice absurd; above all, they must think it startling. They must retain the violence of a virgin astonishment. When the pessimist looks at any infamy, it is to him, after all, only a repetition of the infamy of existence. But the optimist sees injustice as something discordant and unexpected, and it stings him into action.

Yeah, I'd let it go.  That's... the sound of your social skills and your hormones having a fight, it seems like.  It's okay, though.  Happens to all of us.

Also, not really knowing what to talk about suggests that there might not be material for a longer-term relationship? If that's any comfort :\

Eric: ouch :( Good luck finding some other place!

Eric: How come you couldn't pay on time? Sudden major expenditure or something, let's say, chronic?

Aww thanks you guys, all of you guys, I really wasn't expecting such a huge response.

Bay12 is always here for you, Pnx. Even if I suck at advice. I sympathize with the familial issues you're having, though.
Don't worry to much about not being able to help, sometimes it's just nice to know someone cares.

Hi guys... I'm back, I kinda spent a few months away from the forums to clear my head and try to deal with some stuff, but it's kind of reached the point where I don't feel it's really helping me much at all right now.
Hi! I don't believe we've met before! I'm My Name is Immaterial, a random person on the internet who has given you advice you didn't really ask for. It's nice to meet you!

Always remember that you've got a bunch of people sitting behind computer screens hoping that everything goes well for you.
Hi! Nice to meet you too, and thank you.

I'm also feeling like I just don't understand the calc work I'm doing at all. I'm trying to, but it's just not clicking together very well, I feel like I'm missing bits and pieces that I need to really get that comprehension I need. Though maybe it will come with time. a lot of things in calc 1 only made sense to me towards the end of the semester.
I was in the exact same position last semester. My grade began to drop alarmingly, but I tried to muscle through it alone. That was the worst decision I made in 2013. The second I got help, my grade started climbing. Your college probably offers free/cheap tutoring/study help. USE IT.

I dropped my physics class because frankly the teacher was one of the worst teachers I've ever had. The psych class I'm taking also requires me to basically write one short paper a week, which isn't that bad I suppose, but I'm horrible at writing papers, and I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to pull it off.
A. That was a smart thing to do, by the sounds of it. If you aren't learning, you're wasting everyone's time. B. What exactly do you struggle with when writing essays?
Unfortunately from what I've heard the Calc tutoring is mostly non-present at this college, though the teacher does do tutoring of his own during his office hours. Which is something I may look into if I'm still struggling in a while.

The papers thing is just something I've always struggled with. It's always felt like a pretty pointless activity to me and I struggle to get myself to place the words on the paper. If I can manage that I generally do fine, though it tends to take me way to long to write things.

My mother is... being my mother. She's also been opening my letters and censoring them apparently, there was this whole card against humanity 12 days of Christmas thing that my brother got for me, she opened it and took great objection to the contents, which I can sort of understand, but I'd really rather she wasn't vetting my mail.
While [it sounds like] you are living in her house, you're an adult, and she has no business touching your mail. Also, it's a federal offense to open another person's mail, so... there's that. Just going to leave it there.
Yeah... I have a long history of issues with my mother and I'm not inclined to have a fight with her over this one, so it's something I'm just going to be keeping in mind and leaving alone for now. Also what she's doing isn't actually a federal offense at all. The federal law in question regards taking letters from someone else's mailbox as a serious crime, but opening letters not addressed to you and such isn't. Though that doesn't make it not a potentially dickish thing to do.

Right now I'm just in the camp of "leaving it alone for now" the issue should become a non-issue when I finally get out of the house... which you know, is something that will hopefully be sooner rather than later.

Fortunately I don't receive much personal mail.

Casually mention that you opened some of her mail the other day. She'll ask if it was important: say "I think it might have been." She'll demand you give it to her. "You know, I put it down with the other mail, not sure where it is now."

Of course you never opened anything. But that won't stop her from freaking out.

Yeah... let's not do the whole petty psychological warfare thing either. Getting my own back is not going to help anything, nor will it really make me feel better. Much as it might be tempting sometimes.

That's hardly psychological warfare. It's scarcely a mental skirmish!
