I don't have to but I probably should because I need to choose courses to do and the entire 74 pages is courses.
I don't really want to do any courses though

nonperson 04-03-2021 08:28 PM

There might be one that appeals! Do they split it up into different categories? Just thinking that might make it easier to pick something to start with rather than looking at the entire prospectus.

Cacoethes 04-03-2021 08:29 PM

Nope. Just all in alphabetical order
I don't even know what kind of course I'd maybe want to do so I can't narrow it down by letter even!

nonperson 04-03-2021 08:31 PM

Pick a number between 1 and 74. =/

Is there someone who could suggest one?

Cacoethes 04-03-2021 08:37 PM

It all depends on what I want to do really.
There's everything from anxiety management to first aid to cv writing.
But obviously things like first aid won't be running because of covid.
There's just too much to choose from!

nonperson 04-03-2021 08:39 PM

Sometimes too much choice is worse than limited choice.

Maybe give it a browse and something might pop out.

Cacoethes 04-03-2021 08:40 PM

Very true!

I shall.
Crisis team aren't coming until the afternoon tomorrow so I'll have time in the morning to look through it

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 09:51 AM

Morning guys

nonperson 05-03-2021 10:06 AM

Morning Beckie and all.

How's everyone?

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 10:08 AM

Not bad thanks

nonperson 05-03-2021 10:16 AM

Good good.

I'm cold and tired but that's normal.

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 10:24 AM

Are you at work today?

tamobhuuta 05-03-2021 10:38 AM

Hi all. I slept almost solidly! And I had scotch pancakes for breakfast so all is good.

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 11:25 AM

Sounds good tamo!

tamobhuuta 05-03-2021 12:06 PM

How are you?

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 12:13 PM

I'm ok thanks. Bit anxious about crisis team

shadow-light 05-03-2021 12:15 PM


Cacoethes 05-03-2021 12:48 PM

Nice to see you about again!

shadow-light 05-03-2021 12:53 PM

i started coming back now and then a few weeks back, but the quietness kind of intimidated me so just been lurking

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 12:57 PM

It is very quiet here these days

shadow-light 05-03-2021 01:05 PM

it is

i dont know what i expected when i came back the other week, think i'd just assumed it was still going in the way it was 10 years ago. which perhaps was silly

nonperson 05-03-2021 01:27 PM

There's usually someone around to respond if you post in this thread!

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 01:29 PM

It is way different to 10 years ago
It wasn't silly to expect it would be the same though

Yes that is true np
And it's usually me because I live here

nonperson 05-03-2021 01:33 PM

Or me because it seems I also live here.

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 01:33 PM

Yes true! :p

shadow-light 05-03-2021 01:35 PM

not got up the guts to post a thread yet lol mainly as having a hard time putting my thoughts about actual MH stuff into sense making words :P

for now its just nice knowing the forum still exists as at the moment low on places to go to speak to people

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 01:40 PM

I get that
I'm sure people would be happy to help anyway even if it didn't make complete sense!
It might take a while to get a response though because of how quiet it is now

I don't know what I would do without this forum tbh!

shadow-light 05-03-2021 01:42 PM

forums in general do seem to have fallen out of fashion :notsure: i've been on some other MH sites recently with "community" bits but I can't get on with them because the layout feels chaotic to me

pity really as i think forums are still a good format

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 01:46 PM

They do.

Yes I agree!

There's The Good Limbo (i think that's what it's called) but i couldn't get on with it. I think most of ryl moved over there as far as I can remember

shadow-light 05-03-2021 01:52 PM

i've not heard of that one

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 01:59 PM

Might be more active than here.
I prefer here though!

shadow-light 05-03-2021 02:09 PM

even if its quiet I kind of like being here, think my brain finds it comforting in its familiarity

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 02:13 PM

Me too

nonperson 05-03-2021 02:41 PM

The forum at The Good Limbo is very quiet (I'm a serial chatter over there too) but that's because most of the members were chat members from here so haven't returned to the forum. The discord chat itself is pretty busy.

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 02:52 PM

Ah ok! I thought it had something to do with chat but wasn't sure

nonperson 05-03-2021 03:04 PM

Yeah, it was like the chat faction of RYL broke away and became independent!

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 03:21 PM

I only used chat a few times. It was good though!

nonperson 05-03-2021 05:27 PM

I find it a bit intimidating and fast sometimes.

Good news - it's the weekend. =)

Cacoethes 05-03-2021 05:41 PM

Yes it was a bit


shadow-light 05-03-2021 06:07 PM

i rarely used chat, i found it a bit cliquey, though I guess the separate boards got a bit that way at times too

shadow-light 05-03-2021 06:11 PM

just been for a look at The Good Limbo (interesting name) and I am fairly sure I recognise TONS of usernames

not_so_insig 05-03-2021 06:23 PM

I am still here shadow light (used to be insignificant one). Never really left.

Cacoethes 06-03-2021 09:39 AM

Morning everyone

nonperson 06-03-2021 10:54 AM

Hullo all.

What's everyone up to today?

not_so_insig 06-03-2021 11:01 AM

I have a parcel coming between 1 and 5 pm today.

tamobhuuta 06-03-2021 11:09 AM

Hi, how are you?

not_so_insig 06-03-2021 11:12 AM

I am ok thanks.

Cacoethes 06-03-2021 11:29 AM

Hey guys

I'm on my way to see Jasmine. My second bus should be here soon!

nonperson 06-03-2021 11:40 AM

Exciting parcel, Dawn?

Hey Tamo!

Ah, was wondering if you were visiting today, Beckie.

not_so_insig 06-03-2021 11:42 AM
