1. I want to something exciting this summer. I'll be 18, an upcoming college sophomore, and probably continuing with community college or transferring to an uber-expensive college into a political science/public policy major. So, I'm looking for something paid and/or free. I'm considering:

A) Being an Au Pair. Has anyone done this before? How was it? Did you get paid a lot? Did you have to pay your air fare?

B) Working/volunteering in something other then au pairing. Possibly CityYear. Does anyone have any experience with that or the PeaceCorps?

C) Becoming a police officer. Do you need a college degree to become a entering police officer, or do you just need to pass a civil service exam?

D) Interning in a political office.

2. What did you do with your summers/breaks in college?

3. What is the worst relationship issue you've ever had to deal with (cheating, moving miles apart, etc.)? Did you and your partner get through it and continue your relationship?

4. If you listen to rap, who are your favorite artists?

5. What is French illustration called? Does it have a specific name?

6. Is it better (is there a better chance of being accepted) generally, as a transfer student, to apply for the spring semester then it is to apply for the fall semester (assuming your GPA was the same for both applications)?

And, finally...

7. In the upcoming elections, who are you voting for? (list your state, and what candidates you are voting for in each office).

new caaaahz.

For those of you with new cars in the 2005 year (and up):

What kind of car do you have?

How many miles to the gallon do you get?

And how much was it, roughly?

Also, tell me anything you like/dislike about your new car.


1. What is your opinion on dreams? Why do you think people dream?
2. Have you ever had a dream that felt so vivid and life-like, that you were shocked/surprised to wake up to find that it wasn't true? Why/how do you think this occurs?
3. Do you have nightmares often? Do they tend to be based on your fears?
4. How often do you think you dream a night? A week?

1. Should elected officials *have* to live in the "official residence" for their office? Would you be upset if the president didn't want to live in the White House or if a governor didn't want to live in the governor's mansion (assuming there is one)?
2. What do you think about this article? How much will you miss fish sticks and sushi if it really happens?

instant messagessss

i got a new mac. i really disliked the ichat program which was the default IM thingy, so i downloaded AIM 4.7. it works fine, but one of the things that really bugs me is i have to click the "send" button at the bottom right hand side of a conversation to send a message. i am very much used to pressing enter to send IMs because i used trillian instead of AIM on my old windows. is it possible to change the function of the enter key to make it the "send" IMs?

thank youuuuu~

1. I don't have health insurance, but I've obviously fucked my back up something fierce (even breathing deep feels like being stabbed in the back). Can I go to the doctor and have it checked out without it costing me an arm and a leg (I have maybe $100 to my name until next Friday)? I'm in the US -Indiana specifically- if that helps.
Edit: Yes, a doctor's visit is going to have to happen without question. :( I just described the symptoms I've been having to my stepdad (aside from just the back pains, I've been kind of yuck lately), and he said he had the same symptoms when he had acute pleurisy. And here I've been thinking the past couple of days that I have a twisted back, food poisioning and a bitchass cold. grwdhdkjbvhjkbvh

2. Have you ever had a word or phrase get stuck in your head inexplicably or had a completely stupid, nonsensical thought come to mind?
At work today I had the word "expatriate" randomly coming to mind for a couple hours, and I have no idea why. At one point I was cleaning out a container that had tuna salad in it and the first thought that came to my mind was, "How do you expatriate tuna?", which immediately made me think "What the hell?!".

3. What's your favorite kind of cookie?
Chocolate chip or peanut butter

4. What would you get an emo/hipster girl for her 14th birthday? Know of any good places in Indianapolis, Indiana, where I might find a good gift?
Nothing snarky please (ex. "a pack of razorblades lulz"). I just honestly don't know what to get my sister for her upcoming birthday. I always buy her t-shirts and CDs. I'd like to do something different this year, but all she'll tell me is a couple CDs and t-shirts/pairs of jeans she wants and then adds, "Or, you know, just whatever". I'm going to Indy with a friend a couple weeks before her birthday in hopes of finding something for her, but I've no clue what to even look for.

5. What alcholic beverages do you like to drink when you don't want to get drunk?
I'm hanging out with some friends tonight and we're having a couple drinks. They've got plans to get kinda crazy, but I'll be damned (literally? heh) if I go to church hungover tomorrow morning.

apple complaints

I want to file a complaint with Apple. Basically, my laptop's screen is messed up. My warranty isn't up yet, and I have the Apple Care Protection Plan on top of that. I took it into the Apple Store's Genius Bar for repair. The guy made an assessment, got a second opinion from one of his colleagues, and took it away for repairs. He said it was around a $600 repair, but that it was completely covered by my warranty and protection plan. Two days later, I got a call from the Genius Bar saying that they changed their mind and I would have to pay $800 for the repair because the damage was caused by me. (Which is not true.)

Where is the appropriate place to send my angry letter? The only thing I see on the Apple website is "Product Feedback", and I'm afraid this is just going to go through to some disgruntled Apple employee who will send one of those mass-generated emails back to me with their sincerest apologies. Which I don't want. I want my computer fixed.

Would it be more effective sent via snail mail or through the website?

school question

What is the highest level of education you have completed or are in the process of completing? (as in, if you are a junior in high school, say high school, but if you are no longer in school, say what you last completed)
How old are you?

Show me a picture of your school.

You're a pedantic, pontificating, pretentious bastard, a belligerent old fart, a worthless steaming pile of cow dung, figuratively speaking.

Answered, thanks! 

How do I get rid of the little icons next to the song titles in iTunes?  I'm not exactly sure how it got that way in the first place...

Since I got my initial question answered, here's another:

If you're doing NaNoWriMo, how's it going?

I'm... behind.  But I've dedicated tonight and most of tomorrow to catching up on the wordcount.
