WHat is "on fleek"? I know what it means, but is it from an acronym, is it a shortened word, or is it a word that's just been made up entirely?

[mood |aggravatedaggravated]

I'm a university student whose friends have recently graduated, whilst I'm going into my final year. As a result, I'm the only one who still has access to student discount.  Today, I got a message from a friend saying that her friend, C had her laptop stolen.  She wants to use my student discount to get another one, transfer me the money and accompany me to the store to get it.  In this situation I feel used. C and I were once on the same university course and this is the first time she has made any effort to contact me.  What would you do in this situation?

Has anyone experienced a hormone problem, be it PCOS or hypo/hyperthyroidism?

I live a healthy lifestyle. I do a lot of weightlifting and I go to the gym 4-5 days a week. I take the weightlifting seriously and because of that, I have to monitor my diet very closely. I am very strict about what I eat; and I mean, no cheat days, NO alcohol, no happy hour, none of that. But for the last few months, I have been gaining weight in body fat, and I feel like my muscles have actually become weaker. I've been experiencing other symptoms, too, but this is the one that has caused me the most distress. I lost between 60 and 70 pounds and promised to never gain it back, and now I'm gaining it back and I feel like my weight is no longer in my control.

The last time I went to the doctor, it was completely unrelated to this; however, when he asked me the standard questions about my lifestyle (diet, exercise) I felt him giving me the "yeah, right" look.

On top of that, I am tired all the time, I have BAD acne that will take nearly 2 weeks to get rid of (PMS acne is pretty normal for me, but not this). I have had 4 colds in the last year, which is also completely abnormal for me. I also posted a while back about chest pain that I was having, which turned out to be acid reflux - something that is also quit unusual for me, because I eat a lot of acidic food like meat, curry, dairy, hot sauce etc without issue, and then bam, suddenly I had problems. I also noticed a few years ago that I started getting hairs on my chin; apparently a lot of people with PCOS have something like this

Do you think this could be a hormone issue, or an aging issue perhaps? what if you have experienced a hormone imbalance what did you experience?

A while back I worked at a store where I was shifted around to different positions depending on where I was needed the most at the time. Probably my two main jobs were up in the offices as a purchasing assistant, and down in the store as a sales clerk/cashier. Skip to now—I'm applying for a job as a writing tutor at a college. I think I've heard that, if you've worked multiple positions at one place, you should only list the most applicable position on your resume.

So which would be more applicable in this case? The purchasing job probably carried more responsibilities, but as a salesgirl I worked directly with customers, which might mean more for a tutor job where I'm mostly helping people. Or should I just put both?

idk maybe I'm overthinking this, it's been so long since I've had to put together a resume. Do you have any general resume or cover letter tips to share? It'd be greatly appreciated.

I am pulling an all-nighter to finish work, but the good news is that I can be done and go to bed by noon if I manage it. I am currently motivating myself to kickstart efficiency by promising myself that if I buckle down now, at 6am I can go buy something delicious for breakfast. What should I get? (or, you know, what would you get?)

Feel free to answer this question any time, even if it's well past breakfast. This scenario will probably happen again.

picking a smartphone and carrier - Aug 2016 edition [Aug. 16th, 2016|01:56 pm]
The Question Club

ticktockman
It's time for me to buy a real smartphone and pay for a real network. Freedompop has to go, because I still can't consistently make and receive calls. Maybe you really do get what you pay for.

Recommendations, please.

Phone: I'm looking at the Moto G4 plus, 4 meg Ram, 64 meg storage, fingerprint reader, $299. Can do LTE, GSM, all major networks, yada yada. Is there something else I should consider? I really do want the fingerprint reader, and that's the top of my budget.

Carrier: I'm open to anything, from contract to pre-pay to pay-as-you-go. I'm not terribly happy with the companies that lease a subset of Sprint coverage, leaving me without coverage at all in places where other Sprint phones work. I'll be renting as an individual, one phone on the plan, no shared anything, 1 meg gig of high speed is plenty, rollover would be nice. Where should I go?

Wristband sleep alarm [Aug. 16th, 2016|12:49 pm]

neko_chan
Hey! I just wanted to throw out a quick request for recommended favorites out there. Those wristband fitness trackers are super popular with a lot of people, but do any of you use a version only as an alarm? It feels like overkill to buy an expensive Fitbit just for that, but I'm trying to find one that's still good quality with a strong vibration to it. Thanks for any suggestions!
