Okay, I've been struggling with how to approach this, so I'm just gonna be frank. I'm not happy doing the job of the GM. I like executing legislation, working with the regions, and responding to stories from the GM. I don't like providing time-consuming estimates after nine-hour days on campus when I have more important readings to do for class.

If I'm doing the things I love (see the shortlist above) it's fine. If I'm doing "ew, work," it's kind of not. So I would like to see a GM chosen very soon. In the meantime, I'm not sure what to do, as I honestly have no desire to put together this earthquake report. Honest truth. If it's a non-negotiable duty, I might not be around as SoIA for too much longer.

The game really comes to a standstill when there's no one to keep time. And although we definitely need a GM, I'm sorry... I didn't sign up to be that guy.

I mean, I have very little authority on coming out, but when I make the full leap, I don't think I'll want to do it in a costume where people might get confused. "Are you actually gay, or are you just dressing up as a gay character?"

Best of luck however you do it, but... I want to be 100% me when I let people know. I understand what you're going for, but I feel like, for me, it might complicate things.

Ipsos: 38/31/23. PPM: Trudeau 42 Harper 35 Mulcair 23. Harper leads on economic management (44/31/26) and foreign policy (42/32/26) while Trudeau leads on vision (40/35/25) and trust (37/33/30).

Tax cuts may come sooner than expected.

How can anyone claim that Trudeau has vision? Sigh.
5  General Politics / Individual Politics / Opinion of this Video as a Classroom Resource on: September 15, 2014, 09:08:35 am
I'm in an education program that's preparing me to teach kids from kindergarten to grade six. My prof just encouraged me to use this video as a resource in science class.

Obviously I have some biases, but I feel like kids don't have the ability to think critically about a video like this one. On its own, to me, it might as well be a tool for indoctrination. Obviously there are steps that kids and their families can take to reduce their ecological footprints, but do we really need the commentary about Bush's reaction to 9/11 or a comment on wages at Wal-Mart?

What are your thoughts?

Disagree. Not a critical issue.

Hagrid, your best friend was in love with you???

Good luck Hagrid, stay strong!

Yeah, and I thought I was in love with her too... until it was real. Something I clung to, I guess.

EDIT: Okay, I'm getting all sorts of PMs from people who are concerned about me, so I'm clarifying, lol. Sheesh, this is complicated. Tongue

I said I pushed away one of my best friends last night. I'm probably being dramatic, but yeah. I was an idiot last night. That being said, this friend is not the girl I mentioned being in love with. The girl is still one of my best friends as well, but now that her feelings for me are out in the open, I'm not really interested. Part of me wonders if I'm not bi at all and just clung to the idea of liking her because it "made sense."

ANYWAY, I still need to figure out a bunch of sh-t with her, and in the meantime I have a date with a guy on Saturday. It's not really "cheating" on the girl because I told her I can't be in a relationship with her and that I'm trying to figure stuff out. She's hundreds of miles away, so we never actually became an item.

I don't know if that's any clearer, lol. But yeah. I never realized I was "in demand." It's weird.

So, if I understood, 3 persons (2 girls and 1 boy) are in love with you?  One of them is your best friend. You like her as a friend but nothing more.
Seriously, you did nothing wrong with her. No need to feel guilty because of that!

And then, saturday, you will have a date with a boy. Will you have a date with the other girl too?

You're not sure you're bi? What would be your sexual orientation? Gay (you thought during a long time you were attracted by girls, but finally, you like dudes much more) or straigth? (the boy, you really like him, but finally you realize you're not in love with him?).

Can't wait for the saturday message after the date Tongue.

But really Hagrid, good luck, it appears that's not a good period for you. But you will survive!



1 boy I have a date with
1 guy who is a good friend who I pushed away
1 girl who is a good friend, has a crush on me, and I thought I liked

If I'm not bi, I'm gay. I've known I like guys for years. It's easy to trick yourself into thinking you like girls too when you still get crushes on them, but I'm starting to think I just wanted to have crushes on them because being bi would be easier for me to accept.

That being said, I still don't know for sure.

I can't go on a date with the girl because she's in Cincinnati and I'm in Ontario. I did sort of do something wrong with her though, because she doesn't know I like guys and I also told her I like her as well. I mean, I thought I did, but now every time I get a text from her I just get turned off. I have since told her that I can't be in a relationship right now and that I'm "struggling with some things." I need to tell her the truth very soon.

So complicated.

Long before my time, but I imagine that I would have voted for Clarence. Anyhow, what happened to Napoleon?

There are two reasons why we had what was effectively a two-party system for over a year following Napoleon's presidency. The first is that Griffin is the game's most effective political organizer since bgwah's heyday as JCP Chair. The second is that Napoleon's toxic personality burnt a hole straight through the center-left. While Napoleon was extremely skilled at whipping votes, he was so incapable of dealing with his more active allies that he alienated them one by one - Cincinnatus, Oakvale, myself, Scott, etc.

Many people argue that the game inevitably gravitates toward two dominant parties, one representing the left and the other the right. I disagree - and I think we've been drifting away from two-party dominance for months - but even for those who subscribe to this view, Labor's ascension and the collapse of the Liberals requires an explanation.

Of course Napoleon's presidency was an entertaining (albeit frustrating) time for those of us in the Senate, and working with the anti-administration coalition during the winter of 2012-2013 might be the most fun I've had in Atlasia.

It was actually fantastic.

Also, in the hours since my last post I've just pushed away the best friend I've had in a long time.

What a summer it's been.

So there's this boy.

But there's also this girl. Undecided

It's a lot to handle. Date on Saturday.

Clarence/Yelnoc

This was my first presidential election. It's thanks to Clarence that I'm even here in the first place. Hard to believe it was over two years ago... what a waste.
