hitchhiker's guide: towel

(no subject)

I just posted my 1000th comment this morning. I don't know whether to be amused or disturbed at this that I checked at just the right time.

Plus the comment was about Latin. Latin -> languages -> grammar -> win. We can also skip the grammar part and go from languages to win.

I turned in my registration verification form today. Whoo. I'm glad to have that out of the way.

A shoulder to cry on

In Amélie, the title character goes out to improve everyone else's lives but has no one to improve her own life. I remember the first time I saw that movie, and it struck me as very few movies have. Why? Because I'm in the exact same situation.

People come to me for all sorts of advice all the time. This I don't mind, for I'm fairly good at what I do. I can comfort, I can give the advice that they seek, and I can be honest with them. However, just as Amélie needs someone to straighten out her life, where is my shoulder to cry on? Where is my giver of advice? Do I have one? Sometimes I wonder if I'm meant to wander about, adviceless, without anyone to pour my heart out to. After all, I have Dr. Nbook. Why do I need a human? There are some things that other humans need to hear, as I've found out over the years. Sometimes I feel like I shouldn't unload on the people I'm offering advice to, but other times that sounds like a good idea. What's a girl to do?

I also have an SEC meeting at noon and a math LA meeting at one. Let's hope the first meeting is short.
