But at least you're of the right generation!

Some of the students at work who are in their early to mid twenties don't have a clue what I'm talking about sometimes... I must've reached that age range where I can't connect with the young folks any more. *sob* >.>

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:32 PM

You can!

TBH I connect with you guys WAY more than the people at school XD

nonperson 23-04-2020 07:34 PM

I never connected with my peers either.

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:35 PM

I'm not the only one!!

The Worst Witch 23-04-2020 07:36 PM

I’m also of the generation where some of the people in my class at college are younger than my sister, and they just look like babies to me! I mean, they’re obviously not (the youngest probably being about 18) but some of the things they talk about are just like wtaf!

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:37 PM

Er I suck at abbreviations, what does "wtaf" mean?

What are you guys doing?

nonperson 23-04-2020 07:39 PM

Yeah I was a few years older than a lot of people at college too and definitely had the same wtf experience. I found it easier talking to the older people/career changers who were probably closer in age to my parents!

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:41 PM

I'm younger than everyone yet I find it easier to talk to the teachers and other older people ^^"

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:44 PM

*exits convo for it seems too awkward with me here*

nonperson 23-04-2020 07:45 PM

Because they're less judgemental, a bit more sensible, more settled in themselves and every little thing isn't an emotional drama!

nonperson 23-04-2020 07:45 PM

Sorry, we can stop the old person talk if you want. =/

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:47 PM

You're fine!

It's me!it always is...

What do you want to talk about because I'm completely out of ideas

tamobhuuta 23-04-2020 07:49 PM

I made pasta and mushroom sauce, with help from L.

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:49 PM

Ooh pasta!
How're you Tamo?

tamobhuuta 23-04-2020 07:51 PM

I'm ok, looking forward to sleep. How are you?

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:52 PM

I'm ok

What time is it over there?

nonperson 23-04-2020 07:54 PM

Sounds nice, Tamo. Apart from the mushrooms! What goes into mushroom sauce?

I will do some pasta soon too, waiting til after 8 though cos I think someone in the village might be playing some music for the NHS clap tonight.

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:54 PM

Guess you don't like mushrooms np!

nonperson 23-04-2020 07:57 PM

Not a massive fan, no. But I do like pasta.

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 07:58 PM

Pasta's great :D

nonperson 23-04-2020 07:59 PM

I have no self control with it though. =P

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 08:00 PM


I don't think anyone does *hides self*

tamobhuuta 23-04-2020 08:01 PM

The sauce was just a tonne of mushrooms, onions, mascarpone and dried mushroom powder. And we made a basil sauce to dribble on top.

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 08:02 PM

Sounds good

Now I want some...

nonperson 23-04-2020 08:03 PM

Mmm basil sauce is nice.

Someone's playing Don't Stand So Close To Me by the Police, haha.

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 08:06 PM

Haven't heard that one in a while, never made much sense though

The Worst Witch 23-04-2020 08:09 PM

Flatmate made cottage pie for tea. Yum.

I should go do all the homework we got today, will catch you all later/tomorrow

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 08:10 PM


Good luck on your homework!

tamobhuuta 23-04-2020 08:15 PM

I love cottage pie.

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 08:16 PM

I've never had pie

nonperson 23-04-2020 08:40 PM

Any kind of pie?

Shirayuki 23-04-2020 08:55 PM


nonperson 23-04-2020 09:17 PM

You're not missing much.

The Worst Witch 24-04-2020 08:22 AM

Morning everyone

How is everyone today?

Cacoethes 24-04-2020 09:17 AM

I am still tired and groggy but I have coffee

How are you?

tamobhuuta 24-04-2020 09:28 AM

Morning. I should really get up, I've been awake ages.

The Worst Witch 24-04-2020 09:34 AM

I’m okay I guess. Tired too, I didn’t sleep much last night because Soot was being a pain in the arse.

You up to anything today?

tamobhuuta 24-04-2020 09:47 AM

Just the usual. I'd really like to steal the telly so I can watch some of those wedding dress programmes. What about you?

chinahorse 24-04-2020 10:04 AM

Morning :-)

You should do it tamo! Nice easy watching.

Yay for coffee beckie.

I can relate to pain in the bum kitties. Hopefully you can nap later if needed?

I've been up only half an hour which is good for me. Even if I was awake a lot in the night. Got dressed, put the bin and recycling out and washing up away and laundry on. So productive. Need to work out what to do with my birds nest of hair. And I'm ment to get wifi today. But dont have the new router they promised so?!

tamobhuuta 24-04-2020 10:19 AM

I hope you get your internet china.

I'm watching a programme about penguins.

The Worst Witch 24-04-2020 10:23 AM

My tutor and I are having a progress meeting at 11, she’s calling me over Skype. Bit nervous about it, I’m worried she’s gonna be all like “I’m disappointed, what happened to the student I inducted in September?” A lot has happened since then, she now knows about the self harm and stuff (I didn’t tell her since its been over a decade since I last did it) so worried what she’s going to say about that. I had some negative comments about it before placement stopped.

Well done on being so productive Lillie! I need to do my dishes, will do them after my meeting.

Tamo, good luck with monopolising the TV! Do you have any devices you could watch tv on if needs be?

chinahorse 24-04-2020 10:25 AM

Hopefullyypur tutor will be understanding that it is a very strange and difficult time for everyone right now

Yay what an excellent choice of show tamo!

tamobhuuta 24-04-2020 10:30 AM

I have a tablet but I don't know if I can get the right channel.

Good luck WW.

tamobhuuta 24-04-2020 10:58 AM

Hi osc, how are you?

one_step_closer 24-04-2020 11:54 AM

Not sure. How are you?

chinahorse 24-04-2020 12:14 PM


I had a socially distanced catch up with my dad which was nice.

tamobhuuta 24-04-2020 12:18 PM

That's nice china.

GROUP HUG if that's ok.

one_step_closer 24-04-2020 03:41 PM
