I was doing some random worldbuilding, and on an impulse, I looked up Britain to find out how many square miles it covers.

The "News About Britain" section of the search engine brought me the headline "British Child Sex Abuse Defies Stereotypes" or something to that effect.

Welp. Went in to talk with an on campus mental health counselor thing. Made the mistake choice of being completely honest and mentioning my regular suicidal thoughts and as a result what was meant to be a 15 minute session, so I was told, went on for over an hour. So, uh, yeah. Wound up half an hour late to my next class because walking distances yo.

On the bright side, I may or may not get help. So I may or may not get better as a result of doing this. Depends on the quality of the psychology or psychiatry or whatever. Also whether or not I get any anti-depressant medication and whether or not said medication does anything.

Soooo....first step on the road to not being a worthless sadsack all the time. Probably a happy thing, but it seems wrong to post in the happy thread on a subject like chronic depression and suicidal intrusive thoughts. Also it's debatable whether or not anything will come of this anyway.

Wheeeeeeeeeeeee.
It's a thing that something will come out of it because you were honest--that's the best thing. Being honest. What would've happened if you weren't honest? [/hypothetical]

While medication can control the feelings and/or chemicals, they can't cure the origin or causes. Glad for you here though :D

That's only because stereotypes are almost never 'the norm' for a populace.

Ah, at last, my lack of experience catches up to me. With the help of a quick tutorial, I've managed to possibly bullshit my way through drawing a Mealy State Machine, but I'll be goddamned if I even know how to begin learning how to draw a logic circuit that generates a 1 system-clock-wide pulse on its output when its input changes from 0 to 1 (but not at any other times) using only D-Flip Flops, AND, OR, and NOT gates. At least, how to begin learning it in a way that'll get me there by Friday, in between all the other stuff I have to do.

Maybe one of the lab TAs will be willing to help, as all the homework TAs have their office hours on Monday or Wednesday. Gonna be cutting it close, given that the homework's due the same day, but oh well. Meanwhile, I'll go get a bunch of political science reading done.

Seriously though what the hell is a D-Flip Flop

Google has all the answers, none of which I understand, because I suck

In the days when Sussman was a novice, Minsky once came to him as he sat hacking at the PDP-6.
“What are you doing?”, asked Minsky. “I am training a randomly wired neural net to play Tic-Tac-Toe” Sussman replied. “Why is the net wired randomly?”, asked Minsky. “I do not want it to have any preconceptions of how to play”, Sussman said.
Minsky then shut his eyes. “Why do you close your eyes?”, Sussman asked his teacher.
“So that the room will be empty.”
At that moment, Sussman was enlightened.

The D stands for "delayed" IIRC. Other than that, I'm afraid I can't help you.

Please don't shitpost, it lowers the quality of discourse
Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

Whelp, my mom just came downstairs and gave me a five minute lecture about how I need to respect her more. Yay.

Do you have any close friends you could go visit where you might feel more safe?

Nope. No close friends at all actually...
And it's 11:30 at night here.

I don't feel like I'm in danger, but I really just don't feel safe. Does that make sense?

You mean like anxiety? I get that a bit too sometimes. Deep breathing exercises help a little. Three seconds in through the nose, five seconds out through the mouth. Repeat for as long as you want but preferably at least a minute. Studies apparently show that doing it up to 10 minutes reduces cortisol (one of the hormones involved in the stressed out feeling) by like 80%.

Well tomorrow's a new day. You seem like a perfectly like-able person. If you don't have too many close friends, maybe you just haven't been talking with the right types of people.

Man, I really should've studied for this upcoming test instead of fucking around on the internet.
Sad thing is, I can't even muster up the effort to care.

Nah, that's just the kindred spirit of apathy talking through us.

I feel you, but I'm just to apathetic to post my own examples. :P
