  1. I think Autostraddle in particular is a pretty amazing resource. That said, I feel like I wouldn't fit into the community there at all & sometimes end up feeling a bit anxious(?) if I spend too much time on the site. In contrast, any time I visit everyoneisgay.com I end up feeling much better than I did beforehand
  2. What's red & bad for your teeth? A brick.
  3. Hi Obitim! If you're set on learning interactively, I'd take a look at adding something like the beginner's course on justinguitar.com to the book you're already reading rather than apps; it's free, he's a really good teacher, it's nicely structured & helps you minimise bad habits forming. I've been playing guitar since my mid-teens & got started through a mixture of learning chords from a chord sheet, applying them to learning songs I actually liked (this is absolutely key to prevent boredom!) and figuring out songs by ear (this will improve your playing & understanding of gui
  4. Eliza! <333 The first crush I remember was on Belle from Beauty and the Beast when I was a young'un, does that count?
  5. So I fell off the challenge bandwagon! I had a brain implosion & had to focus on getting back out of that for a while. However, I found a way to still keep leveling up - I started using SuperBetter to help me out and it has made a huge impact. This was mostly psychological stuff, but I'm now adding my NF-type goals into it So I'm going to take a break from official NF challenge participation for a while, but keep training for the Rebellion "informally" & hanging out on the forums to glean important tactical information...
  6. Hi guys, I officially survived my first challenge & am ready for the next with the Adventurers! My main objective this time is to keep the momentum going, so my goals this time aren't going to change wholesale from the previous ones (though there is going to be some leveling up within them). 1. Run 3x per week: I'm still working on a Couch to 5K program (I am currently up to Week 5). 2. NF Beginner Body Weight workout 3x per week: I need to up the weight for the dumbbell rows (I'll have to fashion something out of textbooks for this, because the 4kg dumbbells I borrowed for last chall
  7. Woohoo, new challenge comin' up!

  8. My overall goal was simply getting started on the path of actually doing something & building some positive habits. My goals were: 1. Run 3x per week (following a couch to 5k program). 2. NF beginner bodyweight workout 3x per week. 3. Pilates routine 2x per week. Life goal: Be up before 7am 5x per week. Challenge summary (Copypasta from my main thread): Running: B It seemed like such a simple task: just follow the app. In my case, no (I'm up to my last run of week 5 when I "should" have finished the 8 week program). Some of this delay was due to injury, but some was just because I did no
  9. Hmm, I have a few weeks to summarise here: WEEK 4 Running: 2 out of 3 Bodyweight workout: 3 out of 3 Pilates: 2 out of 2 (+1 extra) Up before 7am: 3 out of 5 WEEK 5 Running: 2 out of 3 Bodyweight workout: 3 out of 3 Pilates: 2 out of 2 Up before 7am: 2 out of 5 WEEK 6 Running: 2 out of 3 Bodyweight workout: 2 out of 3 Pilates: 2 out of 2 Up before 7am: 2 out of 5 So, my overall challenge summary: Running: B It seemed like such a simple task: just follow the app. In my case, no (I'm up to my last run of week 5 when I "should" have finished the 8 week program).

  10. Speaking as someone who has only just conquered running 5 minutes continuously, I am rather awed by this!
  11. Thanks for this tip, have had this installed for the past few days now and it's made a big difference!
  12. Blergh, reminded myself the hard way why I don't want to drink much anymore...

  13. If it helps at all, this also happens with non-"nerdy" things. For instance, my dad can't stand the fact that I love rugby & have no interest in football/soccer, so he always makes random snide comments about rugby like it's going to change my mind or something. But actually it just makes me like the All Blacks even more. Anyway. The point is that even if they're not interested in the things you are, there's no need for them to be rude about it - have you mentioned to them that it bothers you?
  14. I haven't fallen over while running (yet), but there was an incident where I suddenly fell over four times in a row for no apparent reason just trying to cross the street. In the end my friend had to intervene & haul me across. I still have no idea what that was all about!
