Not posting them until I’m at least four episodes into the show, and they’re pretty exclusively based around my high school years at a Brooklyn Heights private school, which were followed by time at an upstate New York liberal arts college. Edit: Because I think it will related, there will also be comments regarding the...

shesaflightrisk: You’ll recognize her easily. She’s the one with a sharp mind of her own and tendency to speak what’s on it. She’s the one who has brought a classic novel with her to read in the doctor’s office waiting room so she isn’t stuck with People magazine. Her clothes are sensible most of the time and her… I like the sound of this.
There are three places you spend all of your time on sick days. Bed, couch, toilet. Hopefully, that’s a list ordered in decreasing amount of time spent.

Chat No More: Facebook's little mobile phone icon...
Before I knew it, I had quit using gchat 24/7, and I had somehow “unlocked” a new gear of my mind. And while that took almost no energy, it turned out that facebook, as per usual, was more difficult to log out of chat absolutely.
