Personally, I love the Phoenix* scent. I think it's fabulous.
I've had asthma all my life, and I've always gotten the shakes after doing my normal two puffs from the inhaler, but this is the first time it's affected me this bad. I'm even having a hard time typing. Yuck. I just want to go to sleep :(
Do you ever consider what other people would think/opinions if you went out with that person?
Do you lose some interest when they start to become very interested in return?
I suck and always stop liking them once they like me, always think about what other people's opinions would be if I went out with a certain person, and think about every flaw they have.
Basically I'm just wondering if anyone else is guilty of doing this.
I know it was shut last night and when I closed the door it clicked into place solidly, so the latch is okay. WTF? We already went through the house to make sure we have no surprise guests.
Should I leave it at that? Should I mention it to my parents and make them worry that I'm crazy? Has anything like this ever happened to you?

I think it's pretty obvious she is avoiding me. I suppose it's possible I did something that hurt her feelings and she's justifiably angry, but even so, at this point she is the one being shitty by not telling me about it, even after I asked. Still, I don't want to ruin our entire friendship over it.
Should I keep calling/texting/trying to contact her? Or should I give up and wait for her to take the first step and contact me?

I showed him bank receipts from where I paid with debit at the post office on that day. He wants more proof.
Despite me having 800+ feedback and him having 90, I have a feeling that he will win as it's on me as the seller to prove I sent it.

Wtf does the Q stand for?
edit: I did think of "queer," but I thought that technically "queer" was not a PC word and this was in a flier I received from a group that I know always likes to be PC, and they've never had a Q in there before. And besides, isn't queer kind of covered by all the other options? Can you give me an example of someone who would be "queer" and not lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgendered?

They offered me a job in the warehouse. I'm in a plumbing supply house. Now, I'm 5'5" and not very strong. I would have to lift boxes and pipe and duct work, and be out in the heat and freezing cold. This is not something I think I can do...but I need to have a job, and my boyfriend is losing his job too due to a disability issue.
Should I try the warehousing position, or should I just forget it and start sending out resumes? I do not know when this change is taking place exactly, but it's within the next month or two.

I teach high school freshman math - Algebra, to be specific.
I've mentioned here and there that we have a LARGE freshmen class this year - 1000+. Crazy. Because of this, my classes are overcrowded (43, 46, and 49 students when there should only be 28).
I've been teaching for almost 5 years now, so I should really know how to handle this but with the crazy class size it's just so hard to deal with.
What did you like or dislike your teachers doing to the talkers in class? What really got them to stop talking? I HATE standing up there and saying, "We'll wait for you to finish!" I've walked over and stood next to the talking group, but I cannot do that the entire period. Keep in mind that I have to have my attention away from the class certain times - checking in the brand new students and getting them set up, putting attendance on the computer, etc, so I can't always be watching them like a hawk. I figured that with freshmen I could level with the kids and just be honest, but that didn't work.

How much does the bus cost?
Is it dependable?
Here in Miami:
Off and on but often lately to get back and forth to campus.
Our bus cost $1.50 US to ride plus $.75 if you need to transfer to a second bus.
The buses don't run often enough and they never run at the scheduled times. I only have to go five miles to downtown but it adds a total of an hours worth of commute time there and back.

I'm a college aged female who is sitting alone outside in a somewhat secluded spot on campus, and I don't know where the nearest Blue Light is.
This is the only place that I feel like can study right now... but as I was walking over here I realized that it probably isn't the greatest idea. :\ But I have SO much work to do, and my roommate went to sleep and it hurts my head to work with the light off, and none of the lounges in my dorm have internet access. Sigh. And the library closes at midnight (it's now 11:36).
Nevermind, it's too cold out here so I am going home. Also I just don't feel like working, because I am a lazy bastard. This was a silly post.
I was going to offer a better question, but I can't think of one. Maybe I'll have one to add by the time I get home.
Where I live, we've just got off a four-month boil-water notice from the Health Board because the water was infected with cryptosporidiam. We finally get off it, and now, about a month later, it turns out there's now e. coli in the water.
It's in a smaller area, but even so, we're being advised to boil all the water. I'm starting to think it's all a massive conspiracy.
