I’m freaking out, man.
This is really interesting to see. I learned in the past few years that one of my most common stress-handling techniques from my abused years onward was dissociation, so I can support the third or so bullet: People familiar with the state do it well and blend in.
However I have had dissociation ‘attacks’ as it were (for lack of better wording) in periods of EXTREME stress where I would slip half into/out of sleep and find myself unable to grasp the present time/place while there was a lot of ‘static’ in me.
I find psychological mechanisms like this really interesting.
i have had depersonalisation-derealisation disorder for several years but occasionally lapse into complete dissociation and nobody ever knows what to do and that’s even more stressful and just makes it so much worse, so information like this is very useful
in terms of dissociation, i’d like to reiterate that it’s very important that you establish that whatever triggered the dissociative episode is no longer present before you attempt to bring your friend back to reality. many people dissociate as a means of coping with stressors or triggers that are too intense to be properly processed, and as long as their lack of awareness doesn’t present imminent danger to themselves or others, it might be best just to leave your friend in that state until they can get to a safe environment.
because so many people who experience dissociative episodes have also been victims of trauma, it is absolutely crucial that you receive consent - preferably before an episode, and during an episode - before trying anything to ground them or bring them back.

I screamed when I saw Kimgehu’s Kiki’s Delivery Service crossover (http://kimgehu.tumblr.com/post/25969058882/kikis-delivery-service-crossover-d) then I thought it’d be cute the other way around too. I was thinking about the scenes where Tombo would follow Kiki around and annoy her.
Okay, back to homework.

dont feel bad about living the college experience!!!! freshman year is the busiest one
it’s not really the experience i feel bad about necessarily because i am really happy and i have a gr9 roommate (and i didn’t have to move at all) which not a lot of people can say, i’m just sorry that i feel like i abandoned all the relationships i’ve made online because i’m living the experience.
