I think I made a mistake yesterday. I cut my (finger)nails for the first time in my life! They were growing slowly and I was having such a hard time not to bite (or peel) them, so I cut them. But I had no clue how! And they were still small and hard to get into that little nail clipper. So I ended up cutting off halfs or going too much and pulling off skin from the sides (which hurt). And now they are bothering me even more! The whole day I was peeling them and I even put my fingers in my mouth 3 or 4 times (but I stopped myself before biting)…
That’s my nail biting update. Hope the rest of you are having an easier time! (And if you are one of those normal people who don’t have such a habit, thank Hashem every single minute!!)

I’m on Day 17!
Anyone else still doing it?
Have an amazing Shabbos! Hatzlacha in keeping it in a easy, enjoyable way!

“I tried to outsmart the Moderators by posting it on my profile page but all the Hebrew letters just converted into question marks.”
You could have put it there in English. What made you think anyone would see it and realize what context it was meant for, though?
(I did see your post mentioning it in another thread, but perhaps you wouldn’t have posted that if you had been successful. After all, the mods would probably be curious about why you hadn’t simply posted the answer normally.)

I would advise against trying to cut nails when they aren’t
at a length that makes it necessary to cut them. It’s hard enough
not to cut them too short when they are at cutting length.
(I almost suggested asking someone to demonstrate the use of a nail clipper, but realized that you probably don’t bite your toenails.)November 18, 2014 9:37 am at 9:37 am #1045648

This is a really great post. I wish more people would comment on it. I used to bite my nails, but I haven’t for years, b”h. I do occasionally bit my lips, but I never bite them on Shabbos because I wear lipstick.
I will iy”h try this Shabbos to be ready 30 min early. (I usually go into the 18 minutes)
I’m also going to try this week to spend 10 minutes every night writing about things I’m grateful for.
Wish me luck!November 19, 2014 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #1045650Patur Aval AssurParticipant
I’m not sure I entirely get your post, so I’ll just say that once I expended all the time and effort into writing Freud’s theory in Hebrew, I wasn’t going to go back to the English. Also, it’s so much more awesome in Hebrew. What a shame that no one will ever see it. I wonder if one of the moderators can tell me if there was a specific part that was objectionable which I can take out and then post the rest.November 19, 2014 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #1045651
singincherry, thanks for the inspiration! If you could stop, so can we!
Being ready for Shabbos early is a very special thing! It shows that Shabbos is not a burden that we must do, but something beautiful and we want more of! I will try to join you and accept Shabbos 40 minutes before ????? (my community’s ????? ???? time).
I also like the idea to stop and think about the good things we have! We must show Hashem we appreciate all the good he gives us!

singincherry, how’d it work out for you?
For me, I was unfortunately not able to keep my commitment. My ride to another city left very late and we did not arrive until right before ?????.
