mood: chipperchipper
music: what the hell is "chipper" lol... listening to the AC :-)

OK... So I was going to post last night.. But I got sidetracked about 10 times and it never happened...
YAY! I didn't get sucked into the casino's ugly grasp :-)
And the orientation was... well... i'm not ogin to go into any details that may offend other people... we'll just say it was interesting and leave it at that....
The I came home and argued with mom (i'm closing next week!!! gonna start counting the friggin hours!!)...
then I got online...
Argued with laura for a while about calling someone who has an EDeating disorder) by their weight and not their first name... It just dosen't make sense... In a group setting, why would you call her 70, her 85, her 90, etc... cause by doing that I would think you are making things worse... You have a group of people in a room that have a problem... by calling girl A 85 and girl B 90... Girl B is gonna wanna be 85 like girl A.... They see how low a person can go and would just themselves more by trying to reach that.... thats just my opnion.. naturally she took a different stance and we went on about that for a while...
Found out last night that Grace was never really pursuing a job at bristol (like I had thought and was all excited about)... So.. Not really sure what to think of that....

And thats about it.. Oh, heard again from Maureen (girl in New Zealand)... she is having a great year... She is learning a lot of Japanese... so it's gonna be interesting... she went to new zealand.. and when she comes back she'lll be able to speak kiwi and japanese hehe...

i have a dinner meeting to go to tonight for my student going to hungary... so i will prolly be around late.. like last night...

I'll write more then!! (if i don't get sidetracked AGAIN)

we don't actually go, "hey 85, what do you think?" i just do that. but most people with eating disorders, that is their identity and their self-worth. we don't do it to incite or trigger people, we don't even do it to their face, but everyone knows we all talk about each other. i mean, as soon as someone walks into the room, you can tell that you're skinnier or fatter than they are. i mean, jesus christ, this girl looked about 80 pounds and i'm like 108. who's fatter? no shit it's a trigger, but it's not maliciously intended.

Wouldn't it have just been easier to stretch your arm out and smack me in the face? I mean.. just take me off your list... Thanks, Laura...

And the way it was conveyed was that you called eachother that during the session... which is what sounded weird and like it would not help any....
