Anime Recommendations [Feb. 1st, 2016|11:43 pm]
The Question Club

lacybug93
Okay, so this question is for all my fellow otaku people out there.
I can't decide on what anime to watch next. I've read about quite a few and feel a bit overwhelmed by all the choices I have. So many of them sound so intriguing!

I've seen and LOVED these already:

- Shingeki no Kyojin/Attack on Titan
- Noragami
- Tokyo Ghoul
- Ao Haru Ride/Blue Spring Ride
- Charlotte
- Plastic Memories
- Death Note
- Dragon Ball Z (of course. :P)
- Kimi ni Todoke
- 5 Centimeters per Second
- Any of the Studio Ghibli films

Soooo, any recommendations?

What would TQC recommend to stop a skirt from flapping up with a gust of wind?

I have bike shorts and leggings I wear for just this scenario, but I wonder if there's any other skirt hacks someone has figured out.

I have noticed some people at my gym wearing hats while they work out, like a knit/fleece beanie or a backwards baseball hat. The gym is quite well heated, sometimes overheated. So why do they need hats indoors while they're working out?

For those who work overnights, how do you light block your bedroom? On my husband's last overnight rotation, we just hung up some fleece blankets but it was not sufficient. I'm looking for a simple solution that isn't too expensive. Our windows have fat horizontal blinds currently. We'd prefer to not have to drill holes in the walls for curtain rods as we are in a rental home.

do you ever feel like if there's an exposed flat surface in your house, junk will just get piled up on it?

anyone have any good organizational strategies to maybe prevent this? I don't even know why we clear off the table, it can be full of papers, toys, projects and god knows what else in less than 24 hours.

It's been rainy here. A few days ago, I got up in the middle of the night to discover my carpet was wet. I noticed that there was a spot by the corner of the wall where there's some black, and the corner is coming up. I went onto the complex's website, and reported it to maintenance immediately. Maintenance came in and looked at it but no one gave me any feedback (usually there's some sort of note, either in the apartment, or on the website where I made the request) so I had to write another maintenance request asking if someone looked at it. I received a call from one of their maintenance workers, saying they need to call a contractor.

Today, someone from the leasing office called, and said that there is a contractor at the complex today. She asked if he could come in. I told her I would need a minute before anyone came in (I was still in bed...) so she said that she would send him to another apartment first. I took that to mean that he would come by today, but he did not.

I moved my nightstand to discover that the carpet is far more damaged than I realized. Right where my wooden nightstand sat on the floor, there are HUGE dark black spots. It won't come out with a wet cloth. Just to be sure, I went to the other matching nightstand and checked to see if that caused damage to the carpet - and it left no marks on the floor at all. So this is clearly from the water that collected under it.

This is my last month in this apartment. I have already secured a lease for a new place. I still can't bare the thought of sleeping 2-3 feet from black mold in my apartment. Especially given how expensive it was to live here. $1400 a month.

My question is, do you think there's a chance that the complex will try to find a reason to hold me responsible for destroying the carpet? I'll be honest, I have no idea how long water has been coming up like that. But I have had no reason to think that it's been going on that long - I have a feeling that they are going to tell me that it couldn't have formed that quickly (within 2-3 days) and that they are going to try and say that I didn't report it quickly enough - or, I'm worried that they are going to try and tell me that they tried to send a contractor and that I refused, which I did not.

If so, how would I go about handling this to make absolute sure that I don't get charged for this when I move out?

(by the way, the new apartment has no carpets at all. All tile)

The schools in my area (and beyond) no longer teach cursive writing as part of curriculum.

How will people learn how to sign their names on documents?

I mean, I understand that in the future, the need for signatures might become obsolete, but we're not anywhere near that at this point. Every appointment I go to, my signature is required! Are people just going to print their name?
The hell.

Are you good at arranging the furniture in a room?

How do you figure out where to put things?

Pinterest just makes me feel bad about my taste or like spending all my money in crafts and DIY shit I will never finish.

Also, when did TQC pick up again? I deleted the app from my phone almost a year ago because it was terrible, and just recently picked up my laptop to see lots of activity in the comments.

We've probably all seen movies where the hero/ine is pursued from an airplane and the plane fires on him/her, and there's that row of little explosions on the ground where the bullets hit (but usually the hero/ine manages to get away).

Is there an actual term for that row of little explosions?
If not, how would you describe it (other than how I just did)?
