• Need help figuring out my personality, I feel like I'm a walking contradiction?

    Let me explain what I mean by this, I feel that whatever outside stimulus or events would lead to one event occurring, I'm more inclined to produce basically the exact opposite.

    Let me explain what I mean by this, I feel that whatever outside stimulus or events would lead to one event occurring, I'm more inclined to produce basically the exact opposite. Here's a few examples, one way is when I've been studying for the exam to go into law school, I always took the practice tests under conditions that I was fresh and ready but my scores weren't very good. I started taking them when I was tired out and shouldn't be as focused and they skyrocketed. Another situation is whenever I would listen to music that should get you up and going, I would become more passive and less aggressive in the sport I was playing. I tested my theory by listening to calming music, things like Disney soundtracks even, before games. Naturally I felt more focused when I was in games and brought a much higher level of intensity. Can somebody explain what this tells about me? I seriously don't get it.

  • I'm not really sure what I want to do with my life or the type of person I am, any advice on how to figure these things out?

    I have a hard time committing to anything, I enjoy doing a variety of things and are relatively good at them but I don't commit myself to mastering any one of them because after a while I'll get bored with it.

I changed my degree plan in college to something more along the lines of something I liked at the time but I'm about to graduate and are having doubts again. In addition, I feel like I'm a different person on an almost daily person, sometimes I'll want to hang out with everybody and do fun things and others I'll pretty much ignore everyone around me and not want to do anything, some days I'm committed to my future career and other times I'm like "do I really want to do this?"

  • How can I feel more alert without coffee?

    I don't feel withdrawal symptoms and can easily go a day or several without coffee but the benefits are undeniable. I'll try and get good sleep, stay hydrated and eat right but even then I just don't feel like I'm on my A game which sometimes is very vital (interview, exam, etc.) I've tried alternatives such as boiling my own tea... show more

It's just sort of an experiment of mine to try and find an alternative, but as long as my caffeine consumption is at a safe level should I just continue to make coffee a morning habit?

    I've known them a long time and it seems to be a more recent phenomenon. A few other of my friends and I have willfully been trying new activities and going new places because we just found the stuff we were doing before was getting incredibly boring. This obviously has created a divide between the group because we're doing different things now and I'm stuck in the middle trying to cater to both sides, any idea on how to fix this dilemma? Or just let people do what they want and choose for myself as well?

I don't have any problem talking with people and usually get compliments about being funny and authentic but I hate parties and other situations where I feel you have to sort of conform and you lose your self identify if that makes sense. I'm not a big drinker and might turn to that if that really helps loosen up.

  • Trading Carlos Hyde and Marvin Jones for Julio Jones, good idea?

    If I trade Hyde I'd have Elliott, Christine Michael, Ryan Matthews and Alfred Morris at RB and at WR have Evans and Cruz. I'd end up starting Zeke, Michael and Matthews weekly with Julio and Evans at WR.

  • Do leg compression sleeves really help or no?

    I'm wondering if they help physically or if it's psychological with me. I had knee problems and I just felt comfortable in my movements even though they don't really provide support or anything.

  • Does Kevin Love move to the bench in game 4?

    I think the starting 5 the Cavs tried out last night matched perfectly with the Warriors and they shouldn't stray from it. Dellavedova-Shumpert-Love-Frye is a very good balance of shooting and defense.

    I had surgery on my left knee last August and was on crutches for 3 months which obviously put a large burden on my right leg and knee. I developed patellar tendinitis which has gone down some the last few months by doing what my doctor said, but it still doesn't feel quite right. When I straighten my leg and bend it, I have to sort of pop my kneecap back slightly. I'm very paranoid because I play a bit of basketball when I can and rely on quickness, but I remember in last years Finals when Kyrie broke his kneecap when he had patellar tendinitis when trying to stop sharply so I'm sort of wary of any correlation between the two. Are these issues directly related?

  • Even if CP3 and Blake were healthy, do you think they could've beaten the Curry-less Warriors?

    Would just like to see everybody's opinions on this. I don't think so because of Klay, he would've been put on CP3 and no way could Reddick have kept him down. Blake was still rusty and at this point Draymond is probably the better overall player anyways. I think Warriors would've won in 6.

  • Do players like Kyrie Irving and James Harden simply not care about defense or lack the IQ to play it?

    I've noticed alot of poor defenders are also iso-heavy players who don't understand the team concept of basketball. It seems they'd rather shine as individuals than collectively as a team.

I'm all for player safety but ticky tack things like "maintaining process throughout the process of the catch" and what not are unnecessary rules that are enforced. Thoughts?
