  1. Yeah I agree, I'm glad to have beaten BTY even if it's a bronze! Usually the new round starts around 3/4am here, so last night was actually pretty early for me!
  2. So where I live, it's rather difficult for me to get the Better Than You trophy in gold as the new rounds tend to be released in the middle of the night. But tonight, I checked and the new round started around 1am, so I was like let's give this a go. NGL, I am not a fan of the game - Gwyl's Great Escape, but I have sat here struggling to get the 300 score for 50 minutes. Now last I had checked there were 19 people who had beaten the challenger, so I was like okay, well a silver trophy is still an improvement. Anyhoo, I finally did it, I don't know how but I did, I passed that 300 mark. I was tempted to send the score straightaway, but I was all nah don't be paranoid ranga, just finish the game, I won't last much longer. So I did, and I made it to just before the end of the next level, sent my score (no problems, phew), and saw the delightful neomail notification informing of my victory. Then I refreshed the BTY page, and saw the fateful words "55 people have already beaten Gwyl the Symol". I then opened my neomail to confirm the bronze truth. I am cry now. Just having a bit of a whinge. It's late and I'm tired and I've been aiming for a silver/gold trophy for over a year, and I came so close, and yet it was so far :( On the plus side, I do have a new background which makes me happy
  3. As decchild said you can choose each day, but if you go with Chadley's challenge each day and beat them all you get a gold trophy, if you go with a mix of Chadley and Lulu, the trophy will be silver or for completing only Lulu's challenges you will get a bronze trophy at the end (if it follows last year's pattern). So if trophies are important to you, then that's another factor to consider. Similar to above, the number of prizes (and quality), will decrease along with the trophy tier. I have described above how the trophy you receive is worked out. here's a link to last year's prizes and trophies for DD: http://www.jellyneo.net/?go=dailydare16
  4. hmmm, I get that thinking, but it's a bit annoying - what if you actually wanted the guaranteed crafting faerie quest itself. i don't usually have any NC, but I like the option being there. Thanks for responding
  5. ah yes. :( at least I got one day in of double refreshed quests. I don't get why this has happened though, it doesn't really make sense to me
  6. Are you guys still getting a second quest with Delina (before refreshing)? Both today and yesterday I have only received the usual faerie quests and no Delina :/

  10. Hiya, could someone please do me a favour and find a link to a shop for Large Asparrot Smoothie?
  11. Hey, so I was a psych student (in Australia though), so I totally get where your concern is coming from regarding experience. Honestly, the thing I would do, and the thing I did do, was volunteer at my local community health centre. Now I don't really know if you have those in the US, but there would be something similar I imagine. We actually have three year degrees here, followed by an optional fourth year which is taught+research, so for the most part, I don't think any psych students here realllly start volunteering etc. until second year (so you still have time!). I don't know what your counsellor is on about with the 2-3 years of research experience prior to grad school - i mean that is the point of grad school???! You might also have some kind of psych centre on campus that you could look into helping out at? If it's too difficult to enquire about volunteering/interning in person, try emailing them first off. It's not necessarily as effective as calling, but it's better than nothing, and it's good to start somewhere. What is most important though, is that you try an accept the situation you feel you're in, and understand that it is okay to feel behind in grad school prep, and to then start tackling the problem one step at a time. Try not to allow it to overwhelm you. There are always alternative routes to get where you want to go. Perhaps you may want to consider seeing a psychologist or counsellor yourself for help with the social anxiety? It sounds as though it is quite debilitating for you, and it cannot be a pleasant way for you to live. You may already do this, but there are some breathing exercises, or you could practice mindfulness etc. to try and help you relax too. I absolutely understand your social anxiety, and for that matter your social experience at college. It's really tough, but try to not beat yourself up about it. Maybe just do something slightly out of your comfort zone every now and then and work up to increased communication with others. What someone said above is true, we do all get socially anxious, obviously to different degrees, but most people will understand if you are anxious, and if they don't they probably wouldn't be a good friend to have anyway. Feel free to message me too, if it would help :)
  12. What exactly is the point of a junk lot for auctions? Is it just to ensure people don't publicly know what you're selling?
  13. There's also the fact that burritos are Mexican, and it's a wall. Now where have we heard of Mexican walls recently??? lol
  14. An item came out a couple of days ago called "Burrito in the wall". I didn't realise any special political link, but I think it's thought that some people think it's a dig at the new president of the USA. The song "Another Brick in the Wall" (great song!) is a Pink Floyd song. As to what the song is about, well... it's sort of anti-establishment in a sense and coincides with a turbulent period of English history (politically), so I think that people think this new item is a subtle way of TNT comparing these themes to Trump. Evidently some people weren't happy with this, so TNT have removed the item.
  15. firaplays, I totally get where you're coming from. I'm in Australia and this trump business is all over our news at the moment, and it's super depressing. Anyone who denies climate change is a problem for the world in my opinion. This morning though, I was watching a clip of trump on the news, and I had this flashback to when we had tony abbott as prime minister (he was/is a total buffoon). Abbott was ousted and I honestly think something similar has to happen with trump. It's pretty clear that there are numerous problems with trump. There wouldn't be riots about him if he were properly supported. But I agree with Aqua, things do have an ebb and flow, he won't be in power forever, and take heart in the fact that you are not alone in how you feel :)
