    Yeah it's weird I know, don't know why really.
    Oh wow, I'm such an idiot, I didn't realize that's what you meant by "taken off" from Facebook.

    Also, I do the same thing with using "round numbers". I'm sure a lot of people do it too, actually.

    That is true, I always say that, if you don't want to read someone's post just unfollow them, not like they would know that part (Unless you post on their posts everyday, in that case makes no sense). I don't know why it bothers me really, especially since I don't think it's anyone that I talked to a lot, so perhaps it was someone that I didn't realize was on there yet didn't know. (I had a cousin take me off just because I was really upset one day and posted a status asking if someone can talk to me, aleast I am certain he does, he's kinda a dick and he did it right after that post, seems pretty heartless really, and my sister wonders why I don't talk to him very much).

    Yeah it could be mass unfriending, I am not sure I see the point of that, but perhaps if they have 1k friends they would have too many status updates.

    I didn't even know it was possible for someone to "take you off" Facebook.

    And I agree, it's really stupid if they did that just cuz you were posting some stuff (which you are certainly aloud to do, as it's part of what Facebook is about.) If they didn't want to read your posts, they can just "unfollow" you, even without unfriending you. I've unfollowed some of my own "friends" on FB cuz their posts don't interest me.
    It really doesn't make sense that they reported your posts just because they didn't want to see them... Very strange how some people on the interwebz are nowadays.

    I think you're probably just a little upset by this but don't worry about it. I personally never looked at my friendcount as it is unimportant to me. I personally mass unfriended a bunch of people a couple of months ago either because they mean to me irl, maybe just once but I never talked to them anyway so I didn't need to see their posts and people that posted statuses about 'how great' fox murdering is. (fox murdering is fox hunting with hounds, it's illegal but there is little you can do about it and this really conflicts with my ethics especially since foxes are my favourite animal, these people are rude to me irl anyway)

    But I doubt this is the case with you, you seem nice and considerate unlike the people I unfriended. So I'd imagine it's either people deactivating their accounts or mass unfriending and not realizing it. Or they could just be having a hard time so may be a little jealous of you seeming to be having fun. And your beliefs may conflict with theirs and they may get booty hurt over it.

    That's some reasons but they're all a little petty, so I imagine it's the first reason. Anyway if these people won't accept who you are then you don't want to be friends with them anyway, I'm sure you have plenty of good friends already. And if they don't like your posts all they have to do is just stop notifications from you on their feed as it still lets them be friends with you so I highly expect it's just chance and these people are just deactivating their account. So don't worry :D
    But if it really does bother you, you can just not look at the friend count or hide it like I have done. If anyone judges you by how many friends you have then they are just insecure about themselves. No harm done.

    Just focus on improving yourself and stop envying others. The right girl will come along eventually, but if you spend all your time beating up on yourself you will get nowhere.

    I fail to see what one person having 3 partners has to do with you having 0 partners.

    I understand how you feel. My situation is that I'm naturally a bookworm and video game geek, which of course, not all that many people are attracted to. I also just had to fall for the girl a grade above me(I'm still in school), who definitely does not care for me especially. Hopefully, you'll find a person that matches you.

    Do I make my bed? No, because it's just going to be messed up again, and I still lie down on it when I am watching TV, there's no point.
    I wish my mother would understand this. :\

    Wouldn't the first and second Doctor's companion be likely dead as well? Or are they still alive? (I keep forgetting it's only been 50 years, so chances are not everyone in their runs would be dead, the only reason the first three are even dead because they were much older when they had started, actually Troughton only looks about 45ish but he wouldn't have been alive this long). I originally thought Jo was a dead companion when watching Day of the Daleks, then realize she was only like 20 in that era and appears again in Sarah Jane Smith's stories (That's one of the companions I am aware of that have passed on).

    But yeah, I am glad someone else knows what it can be like, actually I imagine it's the same for everyone, I told some people Andy Hallet (Who played Lorne on Angel) passed away a few years back, and they said they didn't want to know that, (So that makes Angel a bit tough to watch, considering you got Glenn Quinn as Doyle and Andy Hallet as Lorne both deceased, tell you watching Buffy if Anthony Stewart Head/Giles passes on is going to be tough. love his character and the actor).

    I love Pertwee's Doctor. One of the few Doctors that had genuine character development. The First Doctor came to love humanity and enjoy traveling with humans. The Third Doctor found himself enjoying his time on Earth working with Unit, and the Eighth Doctor had a rejuvenated interest in traveling the universe but ultimately cut short. I definitely agree it's a bit tough watching the first Three Doctors knowing they're all dead and knowing that two of Pertwee's companions are dead.

    well it is the holidays so everyone will be under the wonderful "holiday stress" and even myself have forgot some common sence things too. but id rather be a little embarassed having to put something back then to over spend on my budget and possibly cause grief futher down the road. just try to make a mental note next time if you are not sure if you may have enough to buy either food or gifts. it makes the holidays (for me) less stressful.

    with the thing with the Butcher, most delis that take back meat either throw it away or sell it at a discount because it isnt fresh. if you arent careful of remembering your budget when ever you go shopping, it can come back to really bite you

    The only reality shows I watch are Total Drama and Drawn Together but they don't really count since they are cartoons.

    I agree that many reality shows are pointless and people just want to go on TV.

    The Amazing Race is the only decent one there, I don't watch it but in each episode they do challenges in based on the country they are in so you get a taste of different cultures.

    As for other reality shows and the people who watch them, I am not amused and as a catfishing victim I think your roommates are sick.

    Yeah that was the other thing, everytime I thought about it, I wanted chocolate chip pancakes haha, but I guess to be fair, we didn't have any eggs either, so that might have been an factor in it. They could have aleast made some sort of idea, but they might do it tomorrow (Depends how the birthday girl feels, since she's still sick, at her party the night before she looked like she would pass out, and wasn't because she only had one beer).

    I would also be disappointed by that. Chocolate chip pancakes are totally worth 10 minutes, and my friends have never acknowledged my birthday. I totally would have stayed for that.

    Hmm I guess I would've been annoyed at them too. But like you said, at least you didn't make them yet. Now I kind of want chocolate chip pancakes... XD
