Just to be clear, I do often use “dude” as a “gender-neutral” term, especially when I’m excited, but if that ever makes you uncomfortable or you feel I’m not respecting your gender, you can tell me to stop because me getting to use a certain word is not even close to being as important as you being comfortable around me, okay?
This is a good attitude to have about the word “dude”
one of the worst parts about failing is knowing you have only yourself to blame. and i don’t mean that in a “wah, i wish i could point fingers at other people” way. you just know that if you hadn’t messed everything up, if you’d worked a little harder, been a little less lazy, you wouldnt have screwed up as majorly. and maybe, maybe just this once, you wouldnt be a failure.
its your fault you failed. all the blame is on you and your own stupidity, and you’re a failure.
