I always forget to eat and only remember once I start getting dizzy, but by then I'm too lethargic to actually make food so I just go to sleep instead of eating and wake up feeling worse. Not having to eat would make living so much less stressful.

Shopping is so immensely boring I've turned off from thinking about it when I go. I also cannot do a big shop in person due to the time it takes and the cost so now plan to do one big shop online and add whatever I can think of. I'd love to not have to eat and just get on with daily life; surely that was a design fault the whole having to eat to live.

404 ERROR TAURUS DOES NOT COMPUTE a-hard-days-night-john-7

Anyhoo...

I got really peeved today because this dude in my APUSH class came onto the Google Hangouts APUSH study session call today with basically no shirt on-- he was wearing a thin af cut-off shirt and I was kind of uncomfortable ngl. This kid also annoys me because he got a perfect composite score on his ACT and my mom likes to keep reminding me about it saying how I need to start studying even though I haven't even registered for the ACT yet and we have no idea when I'll be able to take it because we're in the middle of corona and also I'm kind of preoccupied rn with my regular schoolwork and studying for my AP exams

^I'm sorry to hear that. I wish there was a way to sort of turn someone else's camera off, you know? Not for everyone, just so you didn't have to look at them.

I can also relate to the issues that classmates with very good standardized test scores can cause. Some kid in my math class got a perfect score on the math section of the SAT and I've literally never seen them take a single note. It invites unpleasant comparisons and shame over one's own test scores-- never ever compare yourself to those people! Chances are they just got lucky and just because they got a high score doesn't mean they're a better or smarter person. I'm sad your mom keeps bringing it up 🙁 that's not cool.

(also, who is studying for SATs/ACTs during the AP test weeks?!? Don't we need all the time we can get to prepare for those??)

How women's sizes are inconsistent throughout different brands and that there is no universal size system enforced.

Men's clothes do tend to be a lot more simple in their sizing, in my experience. Plus they actually have pockets, which is neat.

It's not only inconsistent throughout different brands, it's inconsistent throughout the same brands. Some stores I can try on 10 things all the same size and only two will fit.

Also, stores making their sizes bigger. There's a store I used to shop at in middle school and I stopped going there until a couple years ago. I wear the same size jeans now as I did when I was 12. I am not the same size as 12 year old me. There's a couple other stores that I used to shop at as a kid, but now can't buy certain things there because their smallest sizes are too big. I find it a little disrespectful and rude of those companies.

I find it completely the opposite, actually. I'll find a pair of jeans/pants that fit me in one store, and then in the next store their jeans in the "same" size I sometimes will find to be too small. Like I wear a Large or 14/16 in women's pant, so I recently online ordered pants from a couple seperate stores. One pair in a large fit perfect, while the other felt like it was three sizes smaller despite it being a "large" as well. There was also another instance earlier this year wear I went into the mall to try on jeans. I had already tried on and fitted into a size 14 at one store, but those jeans were a little bit expensive, and I wanted to peruse my options to find something cheaper before committing. So I went to Forever 21 and tried on their high-waisted jeans, which were the same style as the other stores jeans, in size 14. They were so much tighter than the other store's high-waisted jeans, which I found very odd. I asked a sales clerk if they had a 16 I could try on, but she said "We don't carry that size here-- 14 is our biggest size" which like excuse me???? Why do other stores carry larger sizes but you don't??? And how tf is 14 your biggest size when it literally wears like a small??? Furthermore, a lot of "larger" sizes, even if they "fit" they're just uncomfortable to wear and not flattering-- its like mainstream manufacturers just don't care about women who aren't twigs. I have a major problem with shorts-- the size that 'fits' me is uncomfortable because junior women's shorts are like all made to go up your ass because sex appeal yadda yadda yadda, and if I go a size up then they're too baggy and awkward and clumpy??? It doesn't make sense-- y'all imma just start making my own clothes honestly paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif or just start literally imma just buy all my clothes from plus-size retailers, even if I have to get the smallest plus-size size (does that make sense?) because at least they know how to freaking dress non-skinny-ass women correctly.

I don't even bother to look at sizes, I just try a bunch on until I find something that comes close to fitting. Sometimes there just isn't anything because clothes are only made for like three sizes of person so I either give up or try the men's section. (Flannels from the men's section are so much better than the women ones because a) they fit me better b) they aren't cut all weird (you never find a men's shirt with a permanent knot stitched in the front) and c) they're actually made out of flannel and not that flimsy sad material that women "flannels" are made of)

In short, me no like women cloth, size no good. men cloth better.

It depends. Sometimes I can find really nice girl flannels if I look in the right place (i.e. skater shops lmao), but yeah I can dig a men's flannel. 

Though I can't really wear a buttoned-up men's flannel because they're not meant to close around tits mccartney-shrug_01_gif

And I hate how there's like those freaking dumbass knots that they tie in front of girls shirts-- If I wanted a knot I can tie it myself otherwise it just looks stupid!!! paul-mccartney

Hate the phrase "social distancing" because it's not what's being asked for, it should be "physical distancing". If I was "social distancing" I wouldn't be on here because I'm freely socialising with you all without paying any heed to the risk of the virus because I can't catch it through socialising here. The only thing that's had me social distancing was my laptop going kaput.

That sounds like the same problem I have. Some stores I wear the smallest or second smallest size and then other stores they don't even have sizes small enough for me. I don't understand this at all because there are definitely a lot of people smaller than me. 

Furthermore, a lot of "larger" sizes, even if they "fit" they're just uncomfortable to wear and not flattering-- its like mainstream manufacturers just don't care about women who aren't twigs.

I don't even think they care about those people because if they did I wouldn't have a hard time finding pants in my size. I can't even find belts in my size. I once spent two hours walking around the mall trying to find one and couldn't so just got the smallest I could find and added a hole. 

I have a major problem with shorts-- the size that 'fits' me is uncomfortable because junior women's shorts are like all made to go up your ass because sex appeal yadda yadda yadda

That's why I love mom shorts. Super comfortable and never cheeky. Also paper bag shorts are in rn and those are also super comfy and don't do that. Bathing suits are a whole other issue, but I sometimes get the bottoms in the kids section because I don't need my whole ass out when going swimming with the fam.

Well you're in England and I'm in the US, so I'd say we are socializing from a distance.

But, my point was, @Little Piggy Dragonguy, that there are ways and means to have as much social contact as always, but that that social contact has to be at a distance. Another example would be my mate Ray, who I have only seen once since mid-March, and that was briefly when physically distancing he dropped off my new laptop, when he pulled up in his car and I got the laptop out of the boot, but we are not talking any less; or my neighbour Paul, who I always see on a Friday - he used to run me to the post office to get my money and then to the shop so I could pick up some bits and pieces, and now I walk to the post office and he knocks when I'm back to find out what I want, with us standing the appropriate PHYSICAL distance apart in the corridor while we have a chat and catch up, before he heads down the shop to get me my heavier shopping.

My ability to be social hasn't changed, just how close I can be physically to people, and not shaking hands or sitting in a car with someone.

With the rules easing in England to allow us to meet one person we don't live with outside, Ray and I will probably meet this week and go and sit by the river opposite me at the required physical distance to have a chat instead of doing it on the phone as we have been. It's the physical distance we have to respect that has changed, not the social which would mean not communicating with anyone outside of those you live with.

I have some women flannels and one men flannel and the men flannel is preferable in size, comfort of material, and coloration. (Just because I'm a girl doesn't mean I only want to wear purple and teal, I mean, come on. What's so tragically unfeminine about primary colors?)

Though I can't really wear a buttoned-up men's flannel because they're not meant to close around tits mccartney-shrug_01_gif

I can't say I've had this problem but if you buy them big enough it might be ok. Anyway, if you find that women's flannels fit you better, good for you!!! Just because I don't like them doesn't mean no one should wear them :)))

also i very rarely button up flannels i just wear them open over t-shirts

And I hate how there's like those freaking dumbass knots that they tie in front of girls shirts-- If I wanted a knot I can tie it myself otherwise it just looks stupid!!! paul-mccartney 

  

I KNOW!!!!! And there's always that stupid little hole above the knot and of course they're always super short and I'm like HELLO I AM A PERSON OF GREAT LENGTH I CAN'T WEAR THIS
