They are all allowed their opinions.
But how we respond to them and relate them here,  is important.

The history of Central and East Europe is maybe not taugh in big detail in GB, but Munich Dictate - where our land was forcedly split by four foreign countries - was one of the most humiliating episodes in the history of the former Czechoslovakia, reminiscent maybe of Pearl Harbour in the history of the US. The suggestions like Keller´s - defended here like "rightfully voiced" by kete - bring imminent historical reminiscence to that event and are extremely hurtful and insulting to all citisens of both countries that succeded CS. The same is the veiled threat that we will be "forced" by Germany to obey. Not only German feelings can be hurt, you know?

If some British politician used the same "suggestion" and rhetorics in regard to The Irish Republic, for example, you would probably notice right away how inappropriate that "suggestion" was. And I don´t believe it would not cause the same outcry.

Re: Free Rants

Today was not a very good day. I met with the two guys I'm doing a group project with for one of my classes. We met at 10:00 this morning and I was anticipating working until around 1:00. We ended up not stopping until close to 3:30. Yes, it was good that we got things done, but it felt drawn out and I was tired and hungry by the end of it. And I had other things to do, of course. And then that didn't go as well as I was hoping, probably in part because I was tired from the group project.

When I got home from the group meeting it felt like I had lost practically a whole day from it. Here's hoping that later on it feels like it paid off.

Actually writing this out makes it seem kind of frivelous, but I really don't feel good. I'm going to get ready for bed and read and hopefully I will start to feel better once I do that.

Re: Free Rants

I hope it at least pays off! 



I have a rant too... for a while now I've been waking up at night and 'seeing' spiders that turned out to not be there once I woke up a little more. I'm extremely scared of spiders and it makes me jump out of bed with my heart racing... and it takes me forever to fall asleep. 

It only got worse after an actual spider encounter I had 2 weeks ago... I can't shake it off. 

I wonder if it's a side effect of some of my meds...

Re: Free Rants

It that kind of thing listed as a possible side effect? If it's disrupting your sleep on a regular basis it doesn't sound good.

I have some stressful stuff looming over my head right now, actually it's been there for the past couple months, too, but it's just getting worse. I need to decide which universities to apply to for next year and just thinking of it can put me in a bad mood. I have to make decisions and I feel like I can't make any of them, one of the reasons being that I have too many other things to do in addition to the applications. I need to ask professors to write reference letters for me and get transcripts, but until I choose which school I'm applying to I don't know what to say to anybody because different schools have you send them in in different ways. And the thoughts of everything I haven't done yet (and if I want to apply for funding I have to do that by December 1st, even if the actual applications to the programs aren't until around January) are also stressing me out. The only thing I've really come close to completing is my CV, the easiest part.
I try to find more and more information to help me make the decision of where to apply (courses that are offered, the interests of the professors that match up with my own), but I am not getting much clarity. Some of the universities are near where I live with my family, others are not. A friend of mine who is already doing her Master's this year suggested I think about where I want to live, which schools are there. I thought that was a helpful suggestion, but at the same time I'm still not sure.
Nothing seems like the right decision. It's almost like I wish someone could choose for me, even though I know that's not a good or helpful thing in reality. 
So it just feels like every day that goes by I just think about it, then have to move on to something else, all with it in the back of my mind that I haven't moved forward in any meaningful way. It feels terrible. This morning I've been wondering if deep down I'm just incompetent, that I'm still a child who doesn't know how to do anything for herself.
I know I want to keep studying, but the road to getting there is not a happy one for me right now.

Re: Free Rants

*hugs* that is a huge decision and I can completely understand how hard that must be to make, you're not incompetent at all. You want to make the best choice for you and that deep down is a good thing! 
I hope you figure it out. Have you tried to make a list of pros and cons of each university? 


I think it is a listed side effect... I get anti-psychotic meds for my anxiety as well as sleep meds... and I'm pretty sure that they list it as a possible side effect. It happened again last night ugh. 

I used to get sleep-paralysis which is much worse since I can't move and back then I also saw spiders... at least now I can flee from it, until I realize it's not real...

Re: Free Rants

I have not made a pros and cons list, though I have taken notes on the courses and faculty, as well as the options for each program. It's an idea that I might consider doing if I have time.

Re: Free Rants

No, but I might be tempted to spend my winters in Florida or something like many other Canadians when I retire. For now, I will simply... bear with it.
