Glad you had a fun, busy week! I love that feeling too - shows I've been doing a lot recently if I wanna be home all day!

Re: The Post About Today Topic


The hotel was SO posh. When I got in the room they’d left two glass bottles of water, a limited edition metal bottle of Coke, and a posh box of chocolates. Plus there were packets of hot chocolate, one of those coffee pod machines and a bunch of pods for it. Also postcards, paper, one of those plastic pencils you push the top to feed the led out, a bunch of expensive cosmetic stuff, and even slippers emoticon

Every time I came back to the room they’d been in and done something. Like fold the end of the toilet paper into a triangle emoticon
Plus they’d even close the curtains and turn the lamps on at night for when you got back, and leave chocolates on the pillows. And turn the bloody heating up to 20 which I didn’t need because I was already warm from walking around and it surprisingly wasn’t that cold.

Also, there was a speaker for the TV above the toilet, with a volume control next to it. Like what. Something g you never knew you needed in your life, but it was so cool haha. And a phone next to the toilet too. As that’s obviously where you want to sit to make a call.

Now I always want to go to this hotel, it was amazing, but can’t justify that every time haha.

Set a record for my .80 mile run with a time of 3:56. Happy about it, and might not ever beat it as I'll be leaving in a few weeks emoticon

I start in the family room of my grandma's house, throw the door open, run off down the sidewalk, through the grass, along a road and then back to a sidewalk leading back to the house.

I couldn't make the exact route in Ohio so the times wouldn't be very comparable. But yeah, I'm sure I'll make more!

I'm sure I'll do it, but that's not comparable to another route!

Today I get out at 11, which is pretty nice (I do have a Biology test though emoticon )!

Can't let this topic die-out until we at least reach 100 pages!

To boost the amount of posts, ill say what's been going on with me recently (very exciting I know emoticon ):

I found out earlier this week that my grades in Florida won't carry-over to the gradebook in Ohio. Four months of work for nothing!! emoticon In a way, it's good because I'll have a second chance to get all A's this year emoticon

In Ohio, they don't have block-scheduling but simply four classes for each semester. As I'll have no grades for this year, I'll be taking the four most important classes once I arrive (Biology, Geometry, Geography and English) and a health class on the internet over my break. That break will be very long because the second semester doesn't begin until the 16th January!! Three weeks off emoticon

Tonight I watched Wonder, which was pretty sad but still a good movie, in the theater and am now spending the night at my grandmother's house emoticon

Here's a rant about the phrase "You did good". It's one of the most annoying things I ever hear, because it's not something that should just be thrown around.

If someone asks me what I got on my test and I tell them I got a C and they say "You did good", I always say "I did the opposite of good", because obviously it's true.

Unless you get a 100%, you're completely wrong to think of something like that as "good".

Same with exercise. If I get back from a run and I've obviously not reached my goal, something like "Better luck next time" or even "You could have done better" are much easier for me to hear than hearing that I did "good", because the others are the truth while the others are just people being nice and trying to make me feel better. I appreciate it when it's obviously said out of good, but I don't appreciate failure being okay at ANY point

The phrase is one that accepts not reaching your goals, which is a terrible thing to glorify.

I'm sorry for this random rant, but it annoys me out of my mind to hear it at any time emoticon

Thanks for reading emoticon

Hi!

Sorry, I don't usually post in this thread, but I felt like I ought to say something about 'doing good' emoticon .

Whenever I tell someone they did well, it's more a comment on the effort they put in than the result they got out - if you give something everything you have but don't reach a goal, there's nothing to regret at all emoticon . So, when someone's disappointed at not achieving something, I think the meaning of 'you did good' is to remind them that the result isn't important - it's all about the effort you put in. If you study hard and get a C, you did good because you could just as easily have given up and got an F emoticon .

Plus, as that bald feller with the beret and the noisy one with the glasses used to say, "Failure is always an option" emoticon .

I'm not sure it's glorifying failure, so much as a reminder that the distinction between success and failure depends solely on where you put the goalposts, and how you look at it emoticon . It's easy to set yourself impossible goals without noticing, too - like learning an entire maths syllabus the week before a test, or setting a running time you couldn't physically manage - studying and training hard and putting up the best scores and times you can are genuinely good achievements in and of themselves. What those scores and times are relative to arbitrary benchmarks is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things - I can honestly say nothing even slightly important in my life has ever come down to a single test score or win/loss decision. "Let not ambition mock this useful toil." "Life's a journey, not a destination." ... "Other quotes and phrases!" emoticon .

So, as long as you gave it your all, you did good. Keep it up emoticon
