You continue to see the same person's stats.. 30 times.. in the same day.. in 30 different threads.

Anyone else?

When after a couple or several years later from now you're still here asking about student loans for your 2 year old.

Hello again Poision Ivy and Peacefulchaos.
Yeah, I just ended "boot camp" about two weeks ago and we now get to use our computers (though heavily monitored). The school year just started this week for the Naval academy prep school and it's tough! Mainly because of our schedule we have only 3 hours to finish all our homework. But I'm making it somehow.
Refrained from posting for a while because I don't think I'm allowed to be on here...

When you consider making a position at your school entitled 'Student Guidance Counselor' because you know so much about the college admissions process and are considering it volunteer work and an EC...

When most of your real life conversations start with "We were talking about that on CC....", "I was talking to [fill in username] on CC and they said.....", and many other CC references. Or when you start to say CC and expect them to know what you are talking about.

By Yugekorb (Yugekorb) on Thursday, August 19, 2004 - 07:07 pm: Edit

No Kiwee, when CC becomes so much like your family that your forget your real family and replace them with CC.

when you follow threads for their intelligent arguments?

But seriously, some of the best articulated arguments I have heard on the subjects of affirmative action, eugenics, Bush/Kerry ... etc have been on CC.

Is that sad? All my friends and I ever talk about is who is hot and who isn't.

By Tlaktan (Tlaktan) on Saturday, August 21, 2004 - 04:56 am: Edit

Oh, and when CC becomes the envy of all your nerdy friends, because they find out they can't register, the moderators won't approve their account for some reason *cough James and Geng *cough*
