What Really Bugs You #5

Recommended Posts

When people ask me questions that they want me to answer only so they can point out what I did wrong. It makes me angrier than it should I think.

When you try your hardest and manage to scrape a pass for the year at uni and everyone else has got high first class results... Never good enough.

When something goes wrong at work and you're expected to deal with it, even though it doesn't have anything to do with you or even really your department. I am not magically an IT person on command.

Autocratic, power-mad, condescending, greedy dentists! "Give me all your money, and a bunch of your future earnings, do the same for my specialist-associates, and maybe I'll treat you like an adult and maybe all your teeth won't fall out." Deep breath....

MommyofPrecious, I think you need a new dentist.

I keep waking up in the middle of the night for no reason. This has never happened to me before and I keep losing sleep, and it's driving me crazyyyyy

When you've stopped to let cars go past before turning right (or left if you're in America or other country that drives on the right side of the road) and the car behind you tries to get past you on the outside when it's obvious there isn't enough room between your car and the kerb. Why can't they just wait a few seconds!!!

Ditto, don't you know they expect us to drive forward so that we can have the potential to be hit by another car, just so they can get past you! Some people are so impatient.

Ahh that drives me crazy! It's also illegal (at least here it is)... people need to calm down and be less angry all the time!

People who pick a fight for nothing and then storm out when they can't handle the heat! Lol, just had an argument with a woman at work, she created it out of nowhere for no reason whatsoever on me and I am the wrong person to pick a fight with, as she found out today. If you can't handle the heat, get out of the frying pan.

Okay, something that's really bugging me right now is my creative writing class. We were supposed to have already started on our first drafts before we sent the teacher our project proposals which has me going :confusedread: . Now I don't know if he can deny our proposals or if it's just to let him know what we're doing but his response has me panicking. I told him I was doing a children's story and he wanted to know what age range my audience would be. ?! I don't know anything about age range! I just know that it doesn't have any explicit or adult content in it and I wrote it with a younger audience in mind. I told him ages 8 and up but I'm panicking because I don't know if he'll tell me to do something else or not. I really don't want to start over on something else as I have about 5000 words done already.

I also don't know what the standard font for something like this is. It's really making me panic because I don't know and it could mean the difference between 6 pages and 14 pages! I wish he would have given a word count instead, then there wouldn't be this problem.

It'll be okay DarkRain. :)

Generally the accepted font/font-size is either Times New Roman or Georgia, size 12. I've never heard of any writing classes deviating from that. Usually they want it double-spaced, but you'll have to check with your instructor on that.

I wouldn't worry too much about target audience. My guess is just that he wanted you to just think about it, it's a common thing to crop up in a class, and it's a class so you're there to learn and think about it. :)

Let us know how it goes!

Thanks LilyRain, that means a lot to me. I'm about halfway done with the story. I think something triggered my anxiety as I feel simultaneously buzzed and tired. :verysad3:

A stupid virus that normally only appears in the Northern Hemisphere. My daughter and I now have it and I think my other daughter is starting to get it. Thank you soccer world cup......not! It bought so many weird things here. Luckily it is not a bad one, it is just like having a minor cold, but how annoying.
