Money are debt ghosts.
If you own money you are being haunted.

My mom got angry at me when she was sitting next to me.
Can I ask why?

She told me to dictate her some numbers while she typed them up in the computer.
I was inefficient and messed up in something.
Bureaucracy is serious business always. Inefficiency and errors are really terrifying stuff, like trying to carry seven mugs of tea up three flights of stairs whilst boiling hot water trickles down your fingers. Someone will end up burnt and angry.

Well then, she could have just deleted the incorrect numbers and replaced them with the correct ones instead of getting angry at you.

Back to the burning tea climb analogy, a person would rather curse at whoever made the tea than consider that bringing one or two mugs at a time would be easier.

It's a safe bet to assume everyone is dysfunctional.

Not THAT much.

We are doomed. It's just that whatever is going to kill us all just happens to be, from a scientific standpoint, pretty frickin' awesome.

FTFY :P

In any case, it does seem that there are a few Bay12ers with idiot/oppressive parent(s).

Eh, you assume the worst and you get pleasantly suprised from time to time. Which is I think the biggest boon of pessimism, it either happens like you expected (and you're good because you prepared, otherwise what are you doing predicting the worst if not to prepare for it??) or it goes better so you're also good.

Yay pessimisim!

Anyways. There was this group of people a friend gathered recently, I was a part of it, it was mostly a FB thing and based on art and learning. She acted as this mentor figure of sorts (because she's just that good) and did tutorials and assignments and stuff. To cut it short, the activity went mostly on hiatus during the exam period and today she announced that for personal reasons she'd be leaving the group, and with it us to fend for ourselves. Now, that's not great but I'll manage, as will most of the people. The thing is, I want to ask her if everything is okay but for some reason can't bring myself to do it. We're not that close really, chat from time to time and the like, but still, I'd like to help if I can.

And I've had the chat open for a little while now, staring at it, wondering what to write, if anything, would I be intruding, would I be annoying, would it actually do anything helpful? Seriously, so many damn questions and I default to the worst possible answer every time, leaving the safest approach of doing fuck all the only logical one.

Yay pessimism!

"Yay pessimism" twice in one post....

Sounds awfully optimistic.

I like pessimism much better then optimism.  It is better to expect to make a C on a test and be happy that I made an B then expect to make an A on a test and be crushe that I made only a B.  In one your expectations can only be met or failed, and in the other your expectations can be met or exceeded.

Actually most of the people here explicitly wanted chaos and tragedy. So. Uh.

That's a fair point. But I prefer to savour hope than taste despair.
