1. I've applied to transfer to two different colleges. I should be hearing back from both of them this week. Well, letters will be sent to my home. I'm still at school, taking finals this week. I have a little bit of a dilemma. I'm not sure when I should allow my parents to tell me the results. Part of me wants to know ASAP, but another part of me knows that I have three exams left this week, and I should wait until afterwards to find out so I don't risk having to take a test while upset. My last exam is Friday morning, so it seems reasonable to ask my parents to tell me what the letters say on Friday after my test. BUT, on Saturday morning I am flying halfway across the country for a concert, and I don't want to spend my weekend moping there either. However, there are forms I need to fill out for the registrar once I figure out where I'm going. So.. what would you do? Should I just let my parents tell me as soon as they get the letters? Or how long should I wait? :\ (In case you couldn't tell, I'm a little nervous that I won't get accepted!)|
2. I'm almost 21 years old, and I have never in my life gotten a shot without one of my parents in the room with me. I've never had a shot without crying and squeezing my parent's hand. I had kind of a bad experience with shots when I was younger (I nearly passed out) and ever since then I just can't do it. However, I need to get a TB test for my new summer job. I won't have time to get it done at home, since I won't be there until Monday night and my appointment with HR is on Tuesday. I'm getting the test done today. I know I'm a big fat wimp, but... how should I handle it? I don't have any friends here that I could bring. Should I tell the nurse ahead of time how bad I am? Normally they can tell since I'm an adult and yet I have to bring my dad in with me, but since I'm alone should I warn her that I'm really bad with shots and that I can't see the needle? How do you recommend I calm down? I have to be there in about an hour. I'm running on about 4 hours of sleep and I've got coffee in my system so I'm already jittery. I don't want to make a fool out of myself, but... really. I can't handle shots. Halp?
ETA: 3. Can you recommend a brand of really super temporary black/dark brown hair dye or spray? Like, out one wash or so?
ETA Again: Okay, the shot is over. Thanks for your help, people. I got a little teary-eyed and I was digging my nails in to my leg, but I didn't cry, and the nurse was really sweet about everything. I am a little light-headed though. Bagel time!
Oh, and for the people who are talking about the set of teensy short needles - I know that kind is fine; in fact when I was little I used to enjoy getting them because my doctor drew a face on it. But this is the newer type where it's one needle and it goes under your skin at a steep angle. That's all.
