When will Yumi-dono (PBUH) allow for pdfs? I wanna share my losing entry into the short story contest.

Hello welcome to HOWLER the NC State IMAGEboard where we post IMAGES; I will host PDFs for you if you want (or you could host them yourself...) but I cannot allow the sanctity of IMAGEboards to be tainted by allowing the posting of anything other than IMAGES IMAGES THANK YOU HAVE A NICE DAY

It's that time of year bois

Are you going?
Who are you going with?
What's your Fair plans?

I try to go every year. This year I'm going with a 2-3 classmates this Saturday. Personally I hate rollercoasters but I'll ride at least one. Mostly there to eat a bunch of junk food.

I'm gonna go with a cute girl then go again with some dirty men. I'm always most attracted to the spectacle of it all, the chaotic noise that is its existence.

>> No.9953  

not going because tickets are money, and money is something I'd rather spend on other things. Not to mention all I remember of the fair is booths where you also need money in order to purchase yet more stuff. Seems a little weird to me!

Heya, let's talk about careers! What do you do / what do you want to do? This has become more relevant recently, especially as I am graduating college soon. Let's chat!
I wanna make cream as an FPGA engineer while I get my PE licensure, hopefully while staying in the RDU/RTP area for a while.

I'll hang out with you if you set a date, we can get lunch or sth as one wagey to another.

>> No.9946  

That's good to hear, I wouldn't necessarily go on the 26th because of an as yet unplanned event with coworkers (but tbh i might ditch it for howlerween even though I was one of the main campaigners for the event itself lol). I'll keep my fingers crossed for the saturday after and hope costumes are encouraged.

Maybe we could get an on campus dinner or do something on the weekend, I'm bad at planning things super far in advance because I just forget about them or end up double booking something else

>> No.9947  


>hope costumes are encouraged

They're borderline required. It was definitely a costume party last year and I think there was some vague threatening (by me?) to be disappointed in anyone who had a non-costume like "depressed college student".

I'm pretty down for w/e. Weekdays tend to work more consistently for me thanks to a mild dose of LDR. Dinner, lunch, coffee, booze (21?), w/e works with your schedule. On or near campus works well for me. I'm a fairly spur of the moment guy, so in general if you give me enough notice to be sure I'll see it in time, we could do whenever. If you wanna fix a date and try hard to remember/not re-book it (both things I struggle with sometimes as well), that's chill, too.
As a way to put something solid fwd so you don't feel impressed upon by the Big Ball showing up in your court unannounced (I have a friend who hates it when my answer is "Whenever works for me"/"Whatever you wanna do" and I figure he's not the only such person who exists), I propose tomorrow (10/16) after wage-hours (6ish?) eatin some Atrium. It's been a minute and a half since I last ate CFA and a minute since I had a milkshake. If that's too short a turnaround, we can do more exploratory posting.

>> No.9948  

I got a thing tomorrow night, and usually don't get back till after 6 anyways because I-40 is impossible. How about Thursday? To be honest I don't think I've had any atrium all this semester because of work so that might be nice.

>> No.9951  

I think I've already sold my Thursday and my Friday dinner is currently promised to a couple of other Howlers, though I can see if they want to come if you don't mind a small mob.

If you don't wanna get mobbed I could do tonight or Monday just as easily

Hey guys I feel like I'm bothering my friend too much so I'm coming back here for one last vent before I do it next week.
Just yesterday I was overflowing with confidence about this but it's starting to dwindle. She's honestly just too good for me. She's a really nice person and she's really social and she's super talented and she just altogether seems to have her life together, and then there's me, a loser who can't into social interaction, and could probably count his friends on one hand. Even if she says yes to the date I won't be able to shake the feeling that she's not actually interested and she's just trying to be nice and that I'm just wasting her time.
Don't take this as me giving up, because I'm not. I just thought venting about this would make me feel slightly better about it. I just don't know if I'm capable of making her happy in the same way that she makes me happy.

>> No.9912  

Kindhearted anon with relevant experience here, ready to use my anecdotes to quell fear and bridge understanding!

This is pretty relevant to my current relationship. The whole very social + less social thing is true in my relationship except I'm the social one! As a highly extroverted person in a relationship with an introvert, let me say this: I love her so much and she makes me incredibly happy. Different levels of sociality (not a word but I'm using it anyway) doesn't have to be a roadblock as long as you can both be emotionally healthy enough to understand what it means for you two. As long as you don't mind her hanging out with her friends when you don't feel up to it and she doesn't mind you not coming along, there doesn't have to be an issue. Integrate if you like, but if you feel forced then it's time to talk to your partner about your feelings on the matter (you do talk about your feelings, don't you, anon?).

With that said, let me move to another point: growth mindset, baby! Like >>9781 said but in a way that doesn't tell you to give up on this girl, you can be in a relationship with her and become more social if that's something that you want. Getting a gf isn't the top of the mountain, you mustn't rest on these laurels. For your mutual happiness longterm (together or otherwise), you have to both still be growing. College is a big growth period, so definitely don't limit yourself in that regard (honestly you should keep growing after college, too, but that's another rant). Get the girl, keep developing, develop together and either
A) Grow stronger! As you continue your emotional development, you two may become an even more powerful power couple, complementing each other in ways few thought possible. DO NOT tether your growth to hers (and vice versa), though, as that is extremely unhealthy and after an inevitable break-up, you'll suddenly realize how much you were holding yourself down (this is experience talking again, so don't make my mistakes).
B) Grow apart. If this happens, it wasn't meant to be forever and that's fine. Hopefully you both got something out of it, whether that's good times, a better appreciation of what you want, or anything else. Don't fear the growing apart. It may be hard, but it's much better than forcing yourself to grow the same way.

It's not often that I get to give relationship advice because 1) nobody ever asks me, 2) few of my friends need it in the first place, and 3) fewer still know they need it. People only seem to ask for advice/input while courting and my friends don't court much. The point of this bit is just to say "Sorry if I've written a big ol' blogpost, but I feel like I know some things that I never get to tell anyone".

Now, as the Japanese say, Gunbutter!

It's strange, even when I first decided I was going to do it, I was so pessimistic about it, and I was terrified about actually going through with it, but now I feel less nervous and more excited. I really feel like things are going to work out, and I'm looking foward to spending more time with her. My only worry now is that I only have one day free on the weekend so I'm going to have to hope that she's also free that day, but otherwise I'm feeling really good about this partly thanks to this thread. Thursday can't come soon enough.

Getting out of your own head is always very important in such scenarios. Catastrophic thinking and subsequent spiraling is a common tendency when trying to navigate the romantic sea. I'll be waiting with bated breath for news come Friday.

Howler parties definitely make a good second date (or third, the actual day hasn't been announced yet). At least three (3) Howlers have gotten a partner around a Howler event, so clearly they're pretty romantic.

Thank you for successfully highlighting why I use LaTeX. If you take a look at Table 3 and make your way down to c. Equation Text you'll see LaTeX outperforming by a wide margin on all but grammar/orthography (which is fixed easily in review anyway).
As the paper says "..our results show that no reasons exist to use LaTeX for documents that do not contain complex mathematical formula." I'll always prefer LaTeX thanks to its marvelous equation editing. I've never gotten very super-usery with LaTeX but jfc did it make my life easier in grad school since my handwriting is trash. I also won't get to use it because the people who don't use complex equations (AKA everyone I work with) have no motivation.

>> No.9928  

Forgot to add:

>...no reasons exist...

They forget things like:
-Proprietary software is expensive and annoying and issues/bugs often just can't be resolved
-Being able to fully control the produced document is amazing (but not necessary for publishing as the journal will do it how they want anyway)
-Makes your brain feel nice

As THAT freetard in CHASS, I feel super called out. Use templates!

>> No.9937  

I absolutely agree that they're wrong about NO reasons existing as they're using slave mentality to determine there's no reason. The "no reason" is that it doesn't increase productivity and instead slowed it down in their study. Productivity has been steadily increasing anyway with no similar increase in wages, so the eternal push toward HYPER EFFICIENCY is meaningless unless you're the owner-class or get more upset the longer you do something. The enjoyment of the laborer is literally relevant and (if you need a cold-blooded reason to care about the happiness of others) will likely increase productivity longterm. There's def not a /need/ to use LaTeX when you're just some CHASShole, but anyone who likes it better should do it that way imo. Word requires the death of the user and sometimes I ain't finna die.

Isn't it interesting how disproportionately GB (gay and bisexual; lesbians are already gay, gender dysphoria is a mental illness) the howlan boys are?
I mean if you factor out the ``bi'' women* who bring their boyfriends to pride parades, I'd say we have more GB folks than any other group on campus.

*According to that one study at Essex, all women are either lesbian or bisexual, so why could those who have never nor would never seriously date a woman as bisexual?
