Jeremy is gonna run away, I just know it. I literally wrote so much after that too. I need to take a chill pill

hashtag-med-school:

So I spent like an hour editing a text to Jeremy about my car origin story? I like left out like huge details and it’s still so fucking long. I thought y’all would like to see, bc I am proud of this story…

My car hobby origin is a long story, here’s the highlights:


I was CLUELESS about cars and had easily avoidable car trouble all the time.


I hated feeling dumb; I resolved to learning some basics. I texted questions to an old classmate who posted about cars. I paid two different men on Craigslist to teach me about car basics. I found a book called “Girls Auto Clinic - Glove Box Guide” by a chemical engineer turned car mechanic turned mechanic business owner Patrice Banks. I read an influential article about how otherwise high achieving women turn to men about cars and house appliances.


I wanted to practice my car knowledge but didn’t want to ruin my reliable car. So, I budgeted $2000 to buy an easy to work on project car to destroy. I always wanted a *truck*. I found a stick shift, and I rehired the better Craigslist guy to teach me how to drive it and help me buy it. So, I’ve owned a 1993 Ford Ranger stick shift pickup since August 2018.


With my new truck and desperate to learn more, I realized I’m better in a classroom setting, so I signed up for two car classes at Eastfield CC. One of the teachers said I was the reason he didn’t quit that semester and secretly gave me a $100 Fluke multimeter that I still use. I made awesome, mechanic friends. I was exhausted working 40 hours a week and driving 30-45 minutes to school each way, 4 days a week for 4 hour classes. But I was so happy.


AutoZone happened a few months ago because I wanted that feeling back, and I wanted to take my learning further without torturing myself with school again. I unexpectedly made friends at work, and I started to like the money, especially now w the debt I’m gonna be in.


Me liking car mechanics is like you liking Disney songs. You like them but you’re not like a pro in it, you just like it. And that’s how I am with car mechanics. I know how to do basic things, not intermediate or hard things; I am also not interested in cars, just the mechanics.

hashtag-med-school:

Jeremy asked me how I got into cars and it’s like a huge story. And idk if he wants the whole version or part of it. And I’m doing it again, over sharing.

If he does not appreciate how fucking COOL and AMAZING you are for that sort of story he BETTER run.

Like omg that’s so cool. It was cool watching you go through it, super cool to hear it all at once.

I’d date you. I’d be INTIMIDATED by you, and also ask you out. That’s fucking cool! The initiative! The knowledge!

hashtag-med-school:

Wow. My anxiety is kinda almost gone now. 😳You reminded me im in control. Thanks…GREAT advice. I’m gonna read it several times.

sachisays:

I’m known for high standards.

Like. “Of course you would start dating and then the apocalypse starts” high standards (DIRECT fucking quote from my SO-CALLED BEST FRIEND).

But that never really bothered me bc I never really got into a “long-term” or “heavy” relationship with a total dud. Quit it when it became apparent it wouldn’t work out. Which is to say, I’ve never been in a seriously relationship but I’ve also never stuck around in or started a shitty one.

Start with deal breakers: what makes you NOT want to interact with the general public? Sexist jokes? Loud talkers? Republicanism?

What turns you off immediately? Being too shy? Being too forward? Too self-deprecating?

What turns you off when you get to know someone? Negativity? Supports de-funding of Planned Parenthood? Maybe they never learned how to cook and display no interest in become self-sufficient in that manner? Maybe just something that’s a pet peeve: do they chew with their mouth open?

Then: how do you want to be treated? Is this a person that favors direct communication or prefers to demonstrate affection physically (and which works best for you?)? Do you want someone who texts you a lot or prefers to call? Is this person adaptable and willing to work with your preferences (and vice versa)?

hashtag-med-school:

I think I’m gonna have goals during dating. And that is; that I have high standards. I’m not just going to volunteer tmi stuff about me like I usually do. I’m not gonna take substandard guys.

I gotta turn everything into a list 🤦🏽‍♀️

Dating is stressful. I remember my ex that I got from a dating app, he really was judging me left and right.

Remember: YOU are the catch/prize/amazing person who THEY would be INCREDIBLY lucky to have in their lives!

My friend gave me this great advice: approach it like you’re making a friend and then see where it goes. They said that dating is like friendship, anyway, so why stress about it? Worst case is that you come out of it with a friend (which would explain why I Do Not speak with any of my exes).

Easier to know what you don’t want than try to come up with a checklist of what you DO want, imo. Also helps set minimum expectations.

Oh god that turned out grim, thanks a lot Home Alone 2.

Would have been better without the batman part, tbh.

Shan Boodram on Instagram: “Keeping up with our quarantine not conquering intimacy content… I wanted to share my fav sex toys specifically

THANK YOU FOR SHARING

Yeah the womanizer looks so good… so out of my budge right now but in the future… it will be mine.

Yeah I just googled it and dang, who knew it was $200 🤦🏽‍♀️😳

I’m so bad but I found myself thinking like “$200 for a boyfriend” hmmmm not bad lol jk

You’re not wrong. The state I’m in has shelter in place going so I can only “see” my person over Skype. And we’re not in a relationship?

So.

$85 for a boyfriend, yeet.

cottagestudie:

hello!! as an online college student, i’ve been lucky enough to already have some experience with online schooling, so i’m here to offer all my advice for the students of quarantined schools! due to the covid-19 outbreak, it’s been very difficult for many who’ve had to switch to online school. however, there are many way to make it simpler and faster, and i’m here to give my best tips!!

  • firstly, make a list. whether you’re more comfortable with a physical to-do list or a virtual calendar to schedule things out (i’ve used google calendar almost my whole life but i just got the app elisi and it’s beautiful, minimalist, and easy to use! available on pretty much every device). planning out your work is the most efficient way to get it done.
  • don’t try to do everything at once. while it’s best to get things done soon, space out your work efficiently so you don’t feel overwhelmed!
  • create a simple, comfortable study space. it doesn’t have to be a perfectly organized desk or gorgeous setup at the kitchen table; i do all of my college work from my bed with a comfy throw blanket and fairy lights up. the most important thing is that you are in the right position to do work, you are comfortable, and that you are able to keep everything you need close to you.
  • work in chunks. to best knock out your work, take it an hour at a time with 10 to 15 minute breaks in between. make some tea, get a snack, stay energized.
  • drink lots of water. you are not immune to the coronavirus. it’s also easier to stay energized and focused when you’re hydrated.
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY: COMMUNICATE WITH YOUR INSTRUCTORS. at first i was very timid to communicate back and forth with my professors when something was wrong but i have learned that it is the most important thing to have good communication. if you don’t understand a concept, have trouble with the online system, or just need general help in your academics, sending them an email is the best way to solve the problem.
  • reward yourself!! once you’ve finished an assignment, give yourself a little treat (maybe a half hour of minecraft or your favorite snack to munch on!!)–it’s the best way to encourage your mind to work harder.
  • don’t work too late. you’re off from school. unless it’s the night of the due date, don’t push yourself until it’s done. the morning is just a sleep away.
  • these are some good playlists for background music.
  • another important tip! communicate with your classmates in case you don’t understand something. everybody learns differently and some pick up info different than others. 
  • make fancy notes!! get fancy with your stationery!! you have plenty of time now and can go bonkers with your beautiful notes.
  • continue to check your temperature and monitor symptoms. your school has closed for a reason. your safety and health are important.
  • retain a relatively normal sleep schedule, similar to the one you have when you normally go to school. slipping out of your regular sleep cycle can and will kick your ass when it’s time to go back.
  • lastly, eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner. take a nap when you’re tired. remember to go to the bathroom and keep your water filled. take care of yourself.

if i think of anything else to add, i will!! just wanted to bring forth my advice in hopes that it benefits anybody who is at home b/c of quarantine or school cancellation :)
