I need some help here!
It's quite a long story:
Kinda' hard since most of my not-in-class time is spent doing homework/projects, and I can't budget anything since I'm living on school loans and don't know what the next payout amount will be. I don't even really know where I could go to socialize anyhow [especially in the summer in 90+ degree humid weather..ugh.]
>>Anyway, let's not derail CinemaGirl's thread with my problems. =]
Honestly I don't mind, since somehow it's connected to mine.
Yup. Even with a lot of home work, life can't be all work and no play. It's just not worth it.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy D:
Well...I know there's things other than work/school/homework, but for me those are primarily sleep, cooking myself dinner, occasional Touhou related stuff (playing the games, archiving story threads, etc.), and trying to squeeze in a round of TF2 every so often. The only thing I have resembling free time is on weekends, and even then only after 2PM since I like to sleep in. I'd like to do the park/garden thing, but in 95+ degree weather nobody else is outside, heh. I'll try that one when the weather cools down! Any suggestions where could I get info on weekend activities that are free, indoors, and preferably require minimal driving?
>>48 I understand the monetary and homework worries, and am just curious if you're also reserved because many social activities appear to be or end up being boring. Perhaps the issue is more of needing to find activities that you find enjoyable so that going out isn't a waste of time, even if you don't meet up with someone cool.
It's amusing that this kind of line is lame until you get confident enough to say it jokingly, and then it becomes a funny one. But until then I highly advice against it, heh.
As for conversation openers... well, just asking opinion over something trivial (and I insist, something trivial) works well, like the name of a recently adopted cat or something. Even if it's bullshit, just say it's for a fried who can't decide or whatever. Then use what they say to you to fork the conversation and keep going. A good idea is to start by telling people you won't bother them long (ie you've got something to do elsewhere), so they don't immediately label you as "annoying person". If the conversation is doing well, you can then ignore this, if it doesn't go well, you have an exit door all ready. If they remind you about it, try to guess if they say so because they want you to stay or go. If it's stay, say you have a change of plans, that it can wait or whatever. If it's go, just go.
>>53 This is going to be long... Okay first thing you should do is cut down on the videos games. And I have NO idea what archiving story threads even is, but archiving for fun doesn't seem that important and seems sort of like a waste of time.
