What should I be for Halloween? [Oct. 14th, 2016|02:37 pm]
The Question Club


I'm too poor to buy anything for a Halloween costume, but I've been invited to a Halloween dinner party for my university. I have a cape. What are some costume ideas you can think of?

Near or far [Oct. 13th, 2016|10:14 am]
The Question Club

I posted awhile ago that I got this one-year fellowship in D.C. working on policy issues at the Executive Branch. In February, I'll be leaving the Pacific Northwest, which I've lived for nearly 9 years and am pretty attached to. My partner of 4 years is staying put here because he has a good job, but we'll stay together and visit each other a lot. At the end of my fellowship, I hope to come back here with more experience under my belt and land a better job than I have now. I just came across a really great job opening here that I feel I'm qualified for now, and want to apply to. Of course I very well could not get it and probably won't just knowing the odds, but I've been encouraged to apply by a biased partner.

Before I even know if I get an interview, I wanted to ask you guys what you think I should do in case I do get lucky and get an offer. So the fellowship starts in February and I haven't been specifically "placed" in an office yet, but the people funding me would probably be a little pissed (the state grant agency) that I'd back out (although I know this does happen). I don't want to burn any bridges, but it is my life, and I'd only back out if I got a better, more permanent job that would allow me to stay here where I am content with my life.

What would you do in my case if you were to decide between a permanent job offer or a prestigious fellowship in the capitol that you've already said yes to? Stay in a place you love with a person you love but piss the fellowship people off, or stick with your course and take the fellowship? After all it's only a year. I know my story is kind of vague so I can explain more if you really want to know :)

What kind of 'mystery' injuries have you gotten?

I always have one or two bruises of unknown origin, and this morning I woke up with a 5" scratch on my side. Wut.

When is it too late to buy things for yourself because you want to put them on a Christmas list?

eta: Do you give your family a list of stuff to buy? Do you always exclaim what a surprise they are when you get them? Have you ever forgotten what was on your list and then been actually surprised?

Nothing to do with the current election [Oct. 12th, 2016|03:26 pm]
The Question Club
If the U.S. decided to amend the Constitution and someone under the age of 35 could run for President, what would be a good minimum age to change it to?

Since the human brain continues to develop until around the age of 25, I would say 25 should be the absolute minimum. Also, this would allow for the possibility of at least some experience in politics.

I am now an ordained minister in Dudeism. I can legally marry people in the States and if I wanna do this in Canada I can take a two day course and I'll be golden. I wonder if I could try to do this for a living, I'm not a people person. What do you guys think?

People with thick hair [Oct. 12th, 2016|02:12 pm]
The Question Club
I have really, really thick hair. Like if 75% of my hair fell out it would still be pretty full. I want to get a hairstyle that makes my hair appear thinner/less voluminous. Can anyone with thick hair suggest what I should do? Have you found a hairstylist that can work magic...and if so, what do they do?

Whenever I go to a hairdresser they never give me good suggestions so I want to hear from people who are actually in my situation.

Do you know other websites like backyardbill.com and humansofnewyork.com? I'm interested in these blogs that profile people of all lifestyles and backgrounds and I'm having a surprisingly hard time finding things like it.

Let's say you have a bike. Let's say that while carrying your bike up the stairs to your unit, your helmet slips from the basket and into a pile of poop.

Do you disinfect your helmet and carry on like usual? Rub it all over your body to clean it, while moaning, "It gets the hose again! It gets the hose AGAIN!" Throw it in the garbage and by new headgear?

Why can't we have nice things?

I wonder if you guys could give me some advice, and share your experiences of moving forward after the end of a long-term relationship.

I broke up with my partner of 11 years back in February. I've moved on in that I no longer feel sad about the breakup, and I would never want to get back together with him (the idea of doing so is hateful to me, even though I don't hate him, and he and I are still friendly). I'm in a good place right now as a single person, and I feel okay with that most of the time. I like getting to know "me," as I am by myself, if that makes sense.

My problem is that friends and family seem to think I should be looking for a new relationship, or at least dating. I just don't want to. I don't feel ready for another relationship, and even though I would like to have one again one day, right now the prospect just isn't appealing.

Here are my specific questions:

If you've ever ended a long relationship, how long was it until you felt ready to date again, or became interested in a new person?

How old were you when the relationship ended? Did you feel like your age meant to kind of had to hurry up a bit about finding someone new?

Do you think it's a bit weird that I'm not interested in dating this many months after the breakup? (I don't think so, but I think some people I know think it is.)

How did you find dating again, once you did start? Did you actively try finding someone or did you just stay open to the possibility, and hope to find someone you clicked with?

Have you tried online dating? How was that?

And of course, please add anything you think I'd find helpful.

In case it matters, I'm a 32-year old woman. I'd been with my SO since I was 21, and I hadn't had any serious relationships before him.

Thank you :)

You're having a few friends over for dinner at your place. Assuming nobody has a life-threatening food allergy, what are you serving for dinner?
