Is Livejournal doomed? Is this latest clusterbuck just yet another sign that the Livejournal BlogPocalypse™, when we lose all of our accounts and entries and the entire site goes dark, is just around the corner? Just a few years away? Mere months away?
Between clueless code monkeys humping our clusters, the DDoS attacks that the site cannot withstand, and the massive sucking sounds created by Facebook, Tumblr, and other sites, is it only a matter of time before the wheels come off, or that so many people will leave LJ that it will be functionally worthless?
Or is that just paranoia talking? (Still blogging here when we're old n' gray?)
I think Charles Schwab is great for the no ATM fees worldwide (they reimburse you anything you pay), but I am not sure what other account to use when traveling since my college checking account from Chase will end soon.
Question: Do you think traveling with just one credit card is sufficient? I am mostly interested in a 2nd card in case the first is lost or stolen.
Did the recent LJ difficulties affect you? Did it make you think about how much you use LJ?
I'm on cluster#9 and couldn't log on or see a lot of things yesterday and this bothered me a lot more than it probably should have done.
It was purchased in November or December 2009. My sister /thinks/ she bought it at Hallmark, but she's not positive. The ornament was about 3.5 inches tall and was made to look like a frosted gingerbread cookie in the shape of a lowercase letter J. I've been googling with no relevant results. Does anyone else have better luck? I've emailed Hallmark but their website says they don't help with past keepsake ornaments so I'm not holding my breath.
ETA: I'm 99% sure it's the "St. Nicholas Square" brand but cannot find a photo of the J or any online for sale. Still trying to find a replacement.
What sort of gift does one bring to a bridal shower?
Is a summer dress too casual for an event like this?
How do I get over my awkwardness around people 10 years younger than myself?
or people in general?
Also, we're thinking of taking a day trip to somewhere fun, but we're trying to weigh potential fun with the drive/train ride to get there. We don't want to spend a ton of time in DC since the friend we're staying with lives half way between the two really, and we've been to DC numerous times. . We're thinking Philly, Hershey, or somewhere like that. Any ideas? we'd love to go to NYC but I don't think the 12hr roundtrip travel time would be worth it.
I had 4 coloured pens. The person doing the tests gave everyone simple instructions. First one was to put your name in the centre of the paper with a blue pen. At the time, I completely forgot where he told me to put my name... and I spelled my name wrong. My NAME. So I had to guess where to put my name... and I got it wrong. I couldn't distinguish what colour the pens were after a while, even though it was blatantly obvious. My brain couldn't process anything. It was a complete and utter mess. This is why I failed most of my GCSE's. My brain goes into meltdown. I had to put the numbers 1 to 10 across the page and couldn't remember that basic number sequence. The HELL!
Why does my brain do this to me? Everyone I spoke to was all "It's just a test, why are you nervous?"
Because I know my brain will turn to mush, that's why.
By the end I was having nervous tics, couldn't stop shaking, and came out in a red rash over my face chest and arms. I just end up getting so nervous about everything. Was it a panic attack? Panic attacks aren't good in tests so what can I do to overcome this?
I feel so embarrassed. Everyone else passed with full marks, except me! I feel so utterly stupid.
2. Did you finish it?
3. What is one goal you have for yourself over the next year?
4. Describe your BEST ever birthday or holiday experience?
5. What about your worst?
eta my answer: I'm going to go out on a limb and assume I'm the only one, lol.
This situation happened recently and I almost did say something. Mainly because the cashier seemed insecure and the customer was being persistent and annoying about it. It isn't any of my business, yes, but I do hate when people act like assholes to get what they want, especially if it could be at the expense of others. This might be because I live with a manipulative kid who will say anything to get his way because his parents let him. And also because I had to deal with customers who would do things like this when I worked in retail.
