You three are cute.
I never thought about it that way bornlie. I guess next time I don't hang out with someone because of work, I'll also have to mention that I'll probably take a shit, urinate a couple times, have some dinner, spend a bit of time on facebook, and I might even play video games a little bit. I guess I just never considered how terrible it was to not tell my friends every little thing I foresee myself doing instead of hanging out with them. Question, if something comes up that I hadn't originally told them about, should I contact them immediately, or can I just wait and inform them later?
Exactly, you can't contort the definitions of words. Some individuals do contort the definitions of words. They may not mean to but they do. My conclusion is that we all have definitions of certain words, some of us even have definitions that shift, while others stick to a more strict adherence to meanings. I personally stick to a more strict definition when it comes to stuff like honestly, truth, lying, justice, and so forth. This is why I do not like politics, politicians lie and they never admit it, or even realize they are lying. I think Obama is a liar while other people do not. They change their opinions when in a position of trust, and when in a position of trust people should be careful in constantly changing what they say and mean. Politicians also sometimes forget what they said and later on their words come across to lies as others. I do not contort or twist anything, I tell it like it is.
Also i brought this here because I think it is a fascinating subject. I also think that having the subject here allows you and others to see it when you otherwise wouldn't have even given it a chance.
I think that your first post is extremely judgmental.
If someone feels too busy to go to a concert and spend an entire night not studying, and then finds it hard and procrastinates it is not your business at all.
You can't judge people on how they want to use their time. And it's definitely not a lie if the person who said she was busy actually felt busy when she told you.
I've done this a thousand times, tell my friends I couldn't go out because I needed to study. And then waste my night watching South Park. But I've always been honest when I said I wanted to study.
You must have a military discipline to consider this a lie.
Edit : Also, like Webdudette said.
If I got a euro everytime I told someone I couldn't hang out because I was doing my thesis, when in actual fact I ended up watching some program I didn't even like or sitting on my bed panicking about said thesis, I'd....no, I wouldn't be rich, but I'd have at least €20.
Can't be bothered reading past the first few posts. bornlie, stop bringing your personal stuff with MK to the bbs, por favor. 1) It's none of our business, 2) it's incredibly dickish, and 3) you two are just going to make up in five minutes anyway. I guess we wouldn't have known it was about her if she hadn't said so, but still...it's between you and her.
Furthermore, she's right and you're wrong.
Because not everyone works that way. I know That i need the procrastination to be efficient (you could also say That i need last minute panic...) and to answer your question, if i go out when i have to work, i will simply feel tensed and guilty and will not enjoy it.
I think you might actually be an exception here because most people i know acted exactly like me when they were students... And i maintain That it has absolutely nothing to do with lying.
