    I'm gonna be honest that's happened to me before and I just either threw the stuff out or left it in a free box on the corner. I felt kinda bad about it but sometimes you just need to Get It Out and if you have to do that in a suboptimal way, so be it.

    Can't throw the things out, they're much too large- and leaving them on the curb is gross, no one will ever take them if I do that. And the only thing that's not large (some dozens of books), I'm not going to throw in the trash because of the principle of it x_x

    is there a goodwill or similar near you? or a library, for the books. and for big things if you have a car I've honestly just taken stuff to a random gas station dumpster before and tossed it all in there. not sure if that counts as a dick move or not but if you just need a way to take the problem out of your hands that will do it.

    idk if you actually want advice or not so I'm sorry if not haha

    the goodwill won't take the things I need to get rid of and the library isn't taking book donations for the forseeable future, and no way I can do the dumpster thing, I can't even CONSIDER anything even skirting the law without taking lethal psychic damage

    in that case... yeah witnessed, I hope you find a way to get rid of the stuff somehow :( it really sucks when you get that burst of motivation but can't take advantage of it.

    Is there a recycling centre near you? I have a centre where I can dump large trash and paper/other building trash quite easily. All I have to do is drive it their and drop it in the dumpsters myself.

    Its exhausting trying to lobby for your own call to restructure your school requirements cause the current set up is truly infeasible
    But honestly god, hearing how severely fucked some students are and the sheer coldness they are treated by the admin is shameful. This is not fucking honor and excellence.
    I hate it here

    Like they are putting the burden of adapting on the students with skewed expectations with regards to workload, not considering even the literal flooding and destruction of peoples homes

    Its shameful! Its shameful to see.

    Ive just been lowkey and highkey incredibly panicking drowned in anxiety about how much I'm failing and hearing about how much others are also failing and suffering, its awful and terrible and exhaustung

    Needed to get a 90% to make average on my cardio midterm, got maybe a 70%. It is hard not to think that i am actually too dumb for med school

    @The Mutant eBay buyers might want a box of "assorted books", if you haven't thrown those out already?

    I accidentally killed a wild mouse and I need reassurance that I'm not awful and it wouldn't have been a good idea to keep it as a pet.

    You're not awful, and keeping it as a pet wouldn't have been a good idea. Sometimes things happen by accident and there's not much we can do about it. It's excessive to check you're not sitting on a mouse every time you want to sit on a couch.

    Thanks ^_^ I wish I hadn't done it but I recognise it's not my fault. I just kinda wanted to hear it from someone else too.

    I have 6 of the little bastards just chilling in a spare plastic tote because they're all young and dumb and the big ones downstairs chase them out of the prime territories (kitchen and dining room, where the cooking and kid snacking happens) and the get into the waste bins in the bedrooms and get stuck because they're too little to jump back out. They are very much NOT good pets. They're adorable little fucks, but they're assholes. Skittish doesn't even begin to describe, poop and pee on everything, chew through everything. The only reason I'm keeping these ones in little mouse luxury is because it's far too cold to release mice this small outside this time of year but I'm, not evil villain enough to herd them into death traps after catching them alive.

    Fat bastards downstairs that keep trying to GET INTO MY RICE AND FLOUR and PISS AND SHIT all over my nice dishtowels get no mercy.

    Heh. I have a humane trap and some repellent spray now, so with luck this can be avoided in future.

    I'm fully aware I do the same thing but that doesn't stop it being aggravating when people refuse to be helped. Maybe it'll make me better at spotting when I do that.

    I don't begrudge helping my friend but I've been up till dawn telling them over and over that I am not equipped to help with their problem and directing them to people who are. I'm tired.

    I just had to dig a broad, flat splinter out of my fingertip with cuticle cutters because it was too far in for tweezers to get to it. OWWW.

    I’m really getting annoyed with the guys I work with. Every morning there’s a mountain of used tp beside the toilet for me to clean rather than flushing it or throwing it away.

    The majority of the workers here are Hispanic and I’ve been told it must be a cultural thing by my bosses when I’ve asked about it. Don’t know if that’s an actual thing or not and sounds a bit racist honestly.

    No idea how to get something done about it. All I know is it’s gross, unsanitary, and I’m getting sick of it.
