I can finally enrol in uni, but damn it's confusing

Maybe you should keep track of your confusions so they can be made into a guide later? :)

Not that you don't already do enough for this community

Good luck :)

Finally found a laptop design that I love. Except I'd never even use half the features and it's incredibly expensive :(
The search continues...

(I think I'm going to give up on finding a convertible laptop/tablet that I actually like and go for a normal laptop instead :'()

I'm going to be seeing laptop ads on social media for months now

What types are you looking at?
The really expensive one was the surface book 2 ($2500 ish....)

Ideally I'd want one that detaches from the keyboard, I've got a (very broken) surface pro at the moment and I don't like having the stand at the back, which is why I love the surface book - it's detachable but the hinge holds it up, not a stand.

Most of the convertible ones I was looking at just flip over, which I don't really mind but the ones I was looking at (Dell Inspiron and Lenovo yoga) have a pretty crap battery life which is not ideal.

I only really want a convertible one because it's what I'm used to, it's not super necessary but would be nice. Don't think I'm going to find a convertible laptop with a decent battery that isn't a few thousand dollars though haha

Laptops are incredibly overpriced at the shops!

Go on Facebook market place, and I tell you ... there are some really cheap laptops there.

Prime example: (A Surface pro under 800 and a Macbook under 800 dollars ):)

(Okay there's no warranty etc... but the prices there are really good... like literally 50% to 80% off the shop prices.

My chamomile is finally flowering. After a few months, I can finally see if tea is better if you grow it yourself

As an avid tea drinker,I am super curious about this. Please give me an update when you try for yourself! ^-^

I went for a walk with my siblings earlier today. It was nice!

Went for a pretty intense run yesterday, found that the physical exertion can really help reduce muscle soreness, even in the short term so that's helped improve my 2019 already!

As insanipi mentioned, please keep us updated! Love a good chamomile tea, where did you get the seedlings from?

I am not very familiar with TMJ, so I can't really understand what's going on, but I hope your condition isn't too severe and that you can manage it with success.

On a different note, I just lost 3 games of pool. I don't think that is going to be a viable career path for me ;(

Hey thanks, it's when you have problems opening your mouth up and eating because of pain in the jaw, mine isn't too severe because I managed to use an ice pack and jaw exercises so the pain has declined.

and rip to you for losing 3 games of pool xD

I feel your pain I guess, I feel like I'm going to lose a second game of Words with Friends right about now. :(
