Grammar Nazi
 
You know what bugs me? O_e When people don't use the term "CC" right. "Please comment and CC!" Um...you're using "CC" as a verb...it's not a verb. "I want lots of CCs!" ...Well, that's almost right, since you're using it as a noun. But "CC" means "constrictive criticism." By asking for "CCs," you're asking for "constructive criticisms." That's....not correct. I hate to be a Grammar Nazi, but, this is a writing website. People should be able to ask for constrictive criticism without sounding strange. o_0

Please comment and CC = Please comment and Constructively Criticize.

Well, ask to switch back. Give reasons why.

Yeah, that was the point (AL) Yeah, just ignore that rant. My mom and I decided to wait a week, and see how things go... and If Mrs. Abraham doesn't work out, I will tell my mom, she'll talk to her, and if things still don't go well on the second week, my mom and I will talk to Mr. Aberforth (False name), the principal, and see if I can transfer to a different gym class.

She has these deep scar all up her shoulder and arm and asdhysvbn *shudders* She's been cutting. Deep. I want to tell someone but I don't know who to tell and it's just really sad and bothering me and... ;~;

Same thing happened for me and DR with someone at our school. In our case we waited a bit too long because of some confusion about her parents, and the teachers found out at the same time as half our year. Try to find out if she is still cutting, and if any adults know about it. If she is still cutting and no adults know, and you're both part of a club, or go to school together, then maybe tell an adult that you both know and trust, like counsellor or a teacher, or get them to do it themselves. I don't know what kind of services you have in the US, but if there is one then it'd be a good idea to have her call an anonymous advice line.

That's what I was gonna say. XD

It's actually constructive criticism. I was in the big Alison/Arin fight and I got sick of saying constructive criticism over and over and over, so I just shortened it to CC.

Sandy 09-07-2012 07:46 PM

I'm so, so sad right now, I'm just sitting at the computer, listening to music and crying.
Why do you do this to me? It's like you want to drag me into Wonderland with you, where I can live forever without knowing what is real.
