I’ve heard it a million times from people that I know. “Just be patient, Michelle” or just in general people going “You lack patience!”. Usually it’s from my family members, sometimes my friends, sometimes (although I throw something at him afterwards) from Clay. But lacking patience is generally not something that I contribute to myself. But after logging in and out of the website where my two new domains are registered yet, I can admit that I’m a little bit impatient. Thanks very much to Kristi for helping me register them at the chosen registar (they take Paypal, but they require a verified account, tsk). So now I’m just waiting for them to be actually registered. I’ve also checked a whois site a few times to see if they’re propagated/online yet. It’s been probably around 3-4 hours so far so I am fairly impatient today. Then again, I am excited so… yay! One’s going to be for my roleplaying game (after 2+ years, it’s finally moving to a domain instead of being on Freewebs!) and the other is going to be my ‘other pet project’. Which will involve a blog and such. Yay? I think so. Not revealing the names yet to anyone, but it’ll be pretty awesome and I’ll have a giant blog entry on here going “zomg, guess what’s up?!”… Or something equally as lame. I don’t know, I’ll try to keep it cheerful and not quite so nerdy. I might not succeed, but I’ll definitely try.
Family studies today was fairly boring. It was about children development and parenting styles that have a detrimental affect on the child. The unfortunate thing is that while I was listening to her speak, it was like having someone describe my father to me. There’s a portion of my notes dedicated to parents who manipulate their children through conditional love. Like, they’ll only love a child (or seem to only love a child) if they get married by a certain age, get married to a certain type of person, become a doctor or a lawyer and it was really like having someone just speak about my father. And it wasn’t in a positive, awww, let’s be proud of daddy! way either. So my father is an “authoritarian” in terms of his parenting style. Good stuff to know.
