Or like me, I didn't even go lol. Party because I don't mix well in such kind of large party situations, usually I'll be the person in the corner haha as I have a relatively small group of friends.
Just curious what part specifically do you not like? because as humans it is our nature to judge. We make quick judgement's which allow us to address danger and motives from the way a person speaks or looks etc. =)

As for being rude about it, I agree it's not nice to be rude. I mean you can judge but keep it to yourself if it's not a good thing to say imo.
Sure I've been judged before, but tbh I think its good to think of it from the other persons perspective and really I've never gotten angry about anyone judging me =)

Would love to hear your thoughts on it :)

What I mean is that when people look at someone from the exterior and because they look or act a certain way, and they are quick to judge their life before they know anything about the person.  It makes me sad because like you may look at someone and say, oh they look happy now, I bet all thier life everything has been handed to them but in reality they have worked hard. But really, it is only a problem when people start to voice this false belief to others. It makes me feel like the targeted person is being cheated of all thier achievements.  I hope that makes sense lol. Yeah I understand your point too ❤️😊

The difficulty of living as a woman, and talking to men about mysogyny. I very recently had a man laugh at me when I told him about my experience of being stalked; how are we meant to stay safe if people around us brush off threats as your own paranoia? It's ridiculous.
Also:
> getting called 'little lady', 'darling', 'sweetheart' by men a little older than me to middle age, particularly when I'm mad. I'm 5'8", that's not little.
> getting stared at to the point where a man will turn around to get a better look, and then wait outside a store you've gone into to see you come out
> having someone rub up against you on public transport on purpose and feeling as if you can't say anything because you have to be polite
> getting brushed off when you have a valid point. Getting paid a lower wage for your position than you should be. Being told to 'go back to the kitchen' because that's funny, apparently.

It's absolute horseshit. And it shits me.

That is disgusting. I am so sorry we have to go through this. We are strong though, and voicing our opinion like you did, is a step closer to a better world. At least I hope it is.

When you are completing a VCE exam and the supervisor says there's "5 minutes to go", giving you a mini heart attack because you still have a 6 marker left to do.

not sure if this is really a life thing, but if i'm writing essays etc for sacs, it annoys me a ridiculous amount to have to continue a sentence on a new page :( it looks so incomplete?? sometimes i edit my sentence around just to make it fit nicely within the page margins oops.

THIS. are we all just fast people on here or?? haha

I relate to both of these!  I'm not quite OCD to the point that I change my sentence but it really annoys me.  And we're not fast, everyone else is just slow.  At least we can always compete in speed walking if University doesn't work out!  ;D
Yours sincerely,

Hey,

a note here that although the term "OCD" is often thrown around to mean "pedantic", "meticulous" or "fussy" it really is a serious mental health disorder that can significantly impact peoples' lives & the casual trivialisation of it can make it harder for people with OCD to be taken seriously.

I highly doubt you would have meant any harm by using OCD in this sense but I'd ask you to refrain from that in future

When you plug your phone to charge before going to sleep then wake up next morning to find out you didnt turn on the switch

By the time you get to get the 30th fire alarm in a year, surely you should have lost the right to call it an “emergency”

Why is uni soo stressfull :(

I came to Unsw hoping to have fun and study but all I've done is studying the whole year. Getting a 1 week break between trimesters isn't great either.

I didn't think Unsw would be this stressful, just the pressure of maintaining high grades is crushing because everyone around you is so smart :\

My friends at other unis have it so much easier, especially in terms of workload :(

When you have to scan your opal card after arriving at a train station, and those “red stoppers”/gates open up and you have milliseconds to cross over that barrier. Didn’t bother me as much before, but after accidentally getting stabbed by both gates before not going instantly, they are now my biggest fears to get trapped in them before. Even when I scan my opal card, I can still feel the pain of being trapped by them again
