    You make it sound so simple. The plan would not apply to the vast majority of the homeless. Why do you feel so sensitive for the problem anyway?

    So, start with minorities... The ones it would apply to are the ones worth helping.

    :lol: I'm quite an empathic person in that I feel incredibly guilty over their suffering... And that I should help. Which is why medicine is enticing, but I wouldn't want to waste my time dealing with people who bring illness upon themselves...

    Seems as if Ramadan is working? Personally, I feel guilty for the mass slaughtering of the Syrian public, but I suppose people who roam the streets is equally as big of a problem?

    Ramadan? :lolwut:

    It was just how they must live, it's so bad. I mean, what happened to human rights?

    The guy seemed so grateful when he got the food and drinks from us.

    Lol, I feel wavy. Not sat down all day. A lot of people are denied basic human rights, why you should feel sorry for this specific group does not make sense

    I am wondering about whether I'm going to open my results up around other people or whether I'm going to take them home to open by myself.Both have pros and cons if my results are really good I will be upset to not have been able to boast but if they are bad it will ruin my reputation but then again I could just boast on Facebook.Last Year, the school decided to not even give us an envelope and as I was taking it I saw that I had failed Geography(C grade) and that meant that I put them away and ignored people asking about them because I thought they could have been really bad but the rest of the results were great.
    Nobody will like you if you boast, especially if you do it over Facebook. Grades aren't everything, you also need to be able to get on with people.

    There a lots of different types of bullying and I'm sure most cases of bullying wouldn't be solved by the victim learning martial arts.

    Absolutely! In a sense, I'm looking forward to it, because at least it'll be a big relief finally knowing what I got! Only 15 days now...
    Only 12 days now! Oh my days, less than 2 weeks away. I don't know how I'm going to open them. Like, in a corner on my own or with people looking over my shoulder? I'm not even that nervous yet, it's just mostly anticipation! The day before though I'll be bricking it. It's annoying to know that our grades will have already been marked and are just sitting in a dark room waiting to be opened. x

    Cyber bullying - beat the crap out of bully, they stop.

    Emotional - bear the crap out of bully, they stop.

    See the pattern?

    So true! These are our first meaningful results, and it'd be nice to actually know if I've failed (or hopefully not, but y'know) quite soon - the wait is killing me!!!!
    I know, completely agree. I'm counting down every day in my head automatically which is just making it worse! x

    Uhm, it was only a few days ago since I had to confront you about your boasting, you are intentionally and directly doing this now

    Nice to hear! Good luck but with arrogance like that regardless of the result I'm sure you'll be satisfied
