Response to German Words: Too Long?:
This makes me miss Germany very much…
Response to Toenail Art Is The New Nail Art:
I’ll stick to one colour per toe, thanks.
I like the rainbow one, but the others, no.
Response to What Being Homeschooled Is Actually Like:
Not necessarily. I went to public school, and you’d think with all the taunting and bullying that I went through, that I’d have a thick skin? Hell no. I’m a pretty messed-up adult, and quite socially inept at that. Years of bottling up emotions so that I wouldn’t be teased further and having to put up a tough front have worn me down. Even though that was over 10 years ago, that stuff stays with you for life.
So yeah, it varies for each person. You might have some well-adjusted homeschoolers, and people who went to traditional school, who came out with issues. (Not blaming school for ALL my problems, but mentioning that it did play a huge part in my mental health)

Response to Ode To The Adidas Shower Sandal:
I bought a pair once, wore them around the house for about an hour, and returned them…those nubs were so painful!!!
I ended up exchanging them for some nike ones with little ridges in the footbeds, not crazy-ass bumps.
If you have a shirt that’s too small in the arm area, just cut the sleeves off, sew the seams, and bam! Awesome tank top!
Response to Single People Need Work-Life Balance Too:
Thank you! It’s about time this was looked at. Up here, we have “family leave”, which, you guessed it, our employer only lets people with kids take.
Want to take a family day to go see Nana, who might not have much time left? Denied, use a vacay day.
Need to drive Dad to his eye surgery and back? Tough shit, use a vacay day.
I’m tired of people without kids getting the short end of the stick. We have families too!
I have only 2 baristas who do this, and that’s just cause I’m friendly and always chatting with them, so it’s cool. One guy writes “Texas” on my orders, since I told him I was from there, after complaining about how cold it was in the store. The other girl just puts down what my hairdo is, or what hat I’m wearing (“cat hat”, “spikes”, and so forth).
Response to 23 Signs You Went To An All-Girls School:
So glad I was spared this. The coed school I went to had uniforms, but if there were no boys, I wouldn’t have had anyone to talk to…Mean girl drama is awful, y’all!
Response to An Adorable Campaign For Rats As Pets:
I had a mouse once, and she was pretty smart, so I can understand this. Thing is, we already have our hands full with 2 cats and a shit-ton of fish.
