  1. i dreamt about talking to my ex again (i had them blocked but they didn’t have me blocked) and trying to explain myself. idk what the explanation was. i said they could contact me again this coming september. i wish i hadn’t said that.

    If they’re giving you the runaround and you think they’re not going to pay on their own, I’d look into small claims court.

  5. i’m catsitting and i’d like to stay with the cats for as long as possible because it’s nicer being here than at home but i’m starving which is kicking my anxiety to overdrive and i have no money to buy delivery to fix this problem

    so that’s all. Fine

  15. I got 19/50 on my last java assignment!

    some questions:
    1) is this legal grounds to kill myself?
    2) am I going to fail the whole class?
    3) I should quit my job(s) or take less hours or SOMETHING

    1. *sprays you with cool water* no!
    2. I would not assume that, no. It’s a possibility. But people who say they’ve never tried something and failed miserably either have never done anything difficult or are lying. There’s a whole Thing in the pro-writer community where people proudly tally their rejection letters. Failing a class just means you really tried at something without already knowing you could do it—which is a tremendously useful skill and in my opinion one of the signature marks of maturity. I will be very proud of you if you show me any grade, including one below 50% or whatever the cutoff is at your school—it means you looked your own failure in the eye and said “if you want me you’re gonna have to come get me.”
    3. if you have to choose between school and work, please think before deciding which one you want to drop. I don’t know your situation but this is unlikely to be an open and shut question. Don’t, in particular, quit your job and focus on school just to keep your professors from being mad at you—no professor I’ve known would actually want that outcome.

  17. i have 48 hours to complete this project and i don’t understand:
    -while loops (or loops at all, honestly)
    -how methods work

    and it’s like, okay, maybe i shouldn’t be in an intensive compsci course (i am only familiar with ruby), but now i am in it and i have to complete this course or pay actual money for it, which i do not have
     
  18. i m caught in the same anxiety spiral i do every semester which is:
    -i cant work at home, i get interrupted
    -i can’t go to the library, i don’t have money for food
     
  19. it’s just like, i can’t listen to the lectures in my online class because there are no subtitles so i literally just fall asleep so i’m just missing huge chunks of information

    While loops are just “do these steps repeatedly, and you’ll know you’re done when this thing happens.” Methods... uh are functions where the first implied argument of the function is an object of the type in which the method is defined. (Functions are... compressed chunks of code. A function is really just a block with a name and usually acts the part.)

    Does that make any sense?
