I work and go to school full time. I take home a little over $1,400 per month. I paid cash for my car several years ago, and it is starting to fall apart, so pretty soon I'm going to look into getting a new-used car that won't cost me more than $250 a month (I have quite a bit of money in savings, so I'll be able to put down a lot depending on how much the car is). My other bills (cell, credit card, gas, groceries) total to about $260 a month (my gas expenses would go down dramatically if I moved into this apartment).
Based on my income and expenses, do you think renting an apartment for $450 a month (not including heat and electric) would be manageable? I've heard that heat/electric bills can get pretty ridiculous, but seriously, I'm hot all the time so even in the winter, I'd be likely to have the temperature set at 55*-65* just to prevent any pipe damage and whatnot.
So, does that sound like something I would be capable of based on my income and expenses? Am I missing anything? What are some important questions I could ask the property owner of the apartment I'm interested in that could potentially save me money?
eta: What's your favorite nail polish color?
My brother, dressed in all black and with his black ski mask pulled over his face, just rolled into my room, stood up, looked around, grabbed my cat from atop my desk, looked around once more, and then rolled right on out of my room again without saying a single word to me.
...should I be worried about my cat, right now? Should I be attempting a search and rescue mission to get her back?
Is there anything you've been listening to a lot lately, especially?
Any concerts or other events coming up that you're looking forward to?
Have you ever been musically inclined in any way? If so, what?
Work time not included, pretty constantly.
Set Your Goals, Dead Hearts, Lemuria.
Verse and Have Heart in less than two weeeeks.
If so, what was your reaction?
But I was wondering [from those who know], what's it like to actually live there?
2. Were you thinner or fatter in high school?
It wasn't very eventful. I simply burst into my brother's room brandishing a plastic sword and yelling, "YARRRRRR!", interrupting his Xbox game of Secret Weapons Over Normandy, and scooped up my kitty, who was sitting on the floor next to his bed, before running out again yelling inaudible pirate jargon at the top of my lungs. My brother didn't come after me, and my kitty is now safe and sound and sitting next to me on my bed, purring.
However, apparently my yelling woke up my father, who was very angry about it and started yelling that both my brother and I are very immature and need to get our own places.
TQC, my brother is 22, and I am 19. Are we really too immature?
And if we are, does it really matter, since we have so much fun being immature?
i like everything from mozart to eminem.
what have you been listening to lately that you love? it doesn't matter what genre or decade.
if you think it is not just good but amazing, i want to hear it.
If you meet/see someone who you find unattractive or average and they think they look great, does it bother you?
Do you think people are fishing for compliments if they point out their flaws? Does it annoy you when people do this or no?

What would you name it?
I'm listening to "The Song is Over" by The Who. It's not on shuffle; I'm listening to The Who's CD "Who's Next."
How many of you have been IMed by the famous (infamous) hat bots? I just got Imed by "thetelltalehat." The person on the other end knew what was going on. My response was "not the hat bots again." It makes me almost not want to list my screen name on LJ. But I've gotten contacted by real people, so that's why I haven't yet.
2. My cat (a medium haired ragdoll/persian cross), sheds. Like, a lot. Wherever she walks she leaves full grown tribbles behind. She also hates to be brushed, which puts a real crimp in my plans to de-fuzz her the normal way.
Normally, I'd just a vacuume a lot and say 'hell with it.' But, her fur is so soft and fine that the vacuume won't even pick it up.
Are there any good ways to defur a cat, without brushes, that don't involve a set of clippers?
What are some other 80's covers I should check out?

Can a guy be friends with a girl and not want anything more than friendship? By 'anything more' I mean anything from sex to a flirtacious rush. Is it possible for a guy to be in a strictly platonic relationship with an attractive girl in the same way he'd be friends with another guy?
I think it's possible. I know it's possible the other way around, as I have guy friends that I just want friendship from (the same way I want friendship from my girlfriends) but my boyfriend thinks that all guys want something more, even if it's just the mental stimulation of hanging out with a girl (as opposed to a guy).
What do you think? Am I right or is he? Please state if you're a guy or a girl.
What song(s) makes you happy (or brighten up your day) no matter how many times you hear it?

Yesterday I found out that I might have ADHD. The nurse told me that I can skip seeing my primary physician and she scheduled me for 6 weekly adult ADHD classes at the hospital for people to distinguish the signs of it and learn to cope with it.
For anyone who has ADHD, did you attend the classes? What were they like?
ETA: The class is through Kaiser and I haven't officially been diagnosed. The nurse said that the class is for adults with ADHD and we will learn the signs and learn to cope with it. She said that if I need further assistance after the class, I can make an appointment with a phychiatrist. My husband was diagnosed with ADD a few years ago and he had to make an appointment with his physician first then with a phychiatrist then he was given some meds. We're both Kaiser members, so I don't know what the difference is -- why he needed a phychiatrist and I need classes. =\ Maybe Kaiser recently changed their policy in diagnosing people?

What do you think of Romney "suspending" his presidential bid??
For those of you who've been leaning his way/voting for him, will you share who you think you'll support now?
For all interested, how do you see this impacting the process from here, beyond McCain being that much more likely to get the GOP bid?
Edit re: my last question - my feeling is that I'm slightly concerned that if the GOP settles on their nominee much earlier than the Democrats do, infighting and tensions within could lessen their strength and support as we get closer to the general election.
This next election is so important in my eyes, and the worst thing we could do imo is to easily end up with too much of the same old, same old. D:

What about restricting students' hairstyles/color/piercings?

What do you think the ideal ratio for an SO is where similar/different is concerned?
1. If one doesn't (or can't) eat wheat, what does one eat? (Proteins, fruits, and veg--obviously, smartass--but recipes, links, and helpful hints would be very greatly appreciated.)
2. Have you ever changed your diet or other lifestyle aspects just to see what happened? How's that working out for you?
The teacher's methods are just 4 exams that are each 25% of your grade, no homework or extra credit allowed. It's so frustrating. I was supposed to graduate this semester, but because of this class I'm not going to be able to.
Is there any way I could get this class waived? I don't know what else I can do and I don't want to drop out because of one stupid class.
Edit - It's a finance class.

I think pineapple is definitely at the top of my list.

Where should I look for another job? I've waitressed and worked retail, but part of what was really amazing about this job was the flexibility. I'm in my last semester of college, so I was planning to look for a second or full-time job soon anyway, but not this soon.
Which is your favorite? Least favorite?
What do you think of Heidi's wardrobe choices?
Personally, I frequently dislike what she's wearing (or think "what the hell is that?"), which seems ironic for a model who hosts and helps JUDGE a fashion designer show. I mean, that glittery gold dress from last night? Not so hot.
I was watching the movie A Cry in the Dark last night which prompted me to ask this question in case you're wondering.

This is my relationship history thus far: Either a) total infatuation that ends in a month or two bc it's too intense b) a long drawn out relationship that I eventually realized was absolutely spark-free (ie no chemistry).
How do I find a happy medium between infatuation and totally boring?
Does anyone else experience these patterns?
I know I shouldn't seek out love. But what do you do if you're not the hottest gal in the room and guys aren't bending over backwards to date you?
And our whole culture has become much more casual about dating, making it very hard to initiate anything without looking desperate. Do you agree?

ETA: i mean, i want revenge, but i'm not really the one who can do it; it'd have to be someone else.
do you think that the time that you've known/dated/whatevered a person determines how much you can (potentially) care about them?
for example, if you date someone for a week and you date someone else for two weeks, do you think that it's impossible for you to care about the first person more, even though you didn't date them as long?
okay, this is the explanation behind my questions. i usually don't like to do this because i don't want biased answers, but here it goes.
i dated a girl OFFICIALLY for a little over a month. the month before that, we were doing all the datey things, and basically, were dating for about two and a half months, in total (unofficial and offical). she cheated on me with some straight, asexual girl from like, 20 hours away and says that it's impossible for me to be heart broken because "it wasn't like we were in a three year long relationship. there's no way that you could be broken hearted." that makes NO SENSE to me, whatsoever.
also, i am trying to be her friend, but i am so angry at her because she's hurt me so much. i really want this new girl to break her heart, and that'd be my revenge. i know i can't do that to her, personally, but i sort of wish it on her. : /
2. There's a children's book that I read years ago and want to know the name of. Some sort of apocalypse had come and now everyone lives underground. No one has any hair, there are restrictions on what food you can eat (you can only have the same desert 5 times in a row). There's four spirals where people walk to get exercise. The main character is sick of the lifestyle and eventually finds a way to the surface where he finds people who have hair. Obviously someone doesn't want him finding this out and try to block him.
That's all I remember, does anyone know the name of the book? I think the word 'city' is in the title.
2) What are the chances of something bad happening to photobucket and me losing hundreds of very important pictures?
3) I don't want these pictures on my computer anymore, so what's the best thing to do with them? Put them on a disc? If I were to do that, what type of cd would I have to use? Could I use one that holds music, or no?

TQC, did I miss a memo? Are bra straps suddenly HORRIBLY OFFENSIVE? Or have I been boorish and uncivilized in divesting myself of sweatshirts and sweaters in public without asking those near me if it was ok? I'm sure she was just being nice, but it really threw me off. She was probably about 35, if it makes a difference in your answers.
My question involves Chemistry and science projects. It doesn't have to be like a big science fair project. But it has to be at least Gr12/Gr11/University level kind of demonstration. The audience will be kids in gr7-8 so it has to be interesting for them but complicated enough for highschool
I had a few ideas. Like fire that's not too hot to touch by using solution of alcohol and water. And the color change that you can get by mixing certain chemicals (forgot which ones) and making the color revert back to normal water.
So something that may seem like magic would be very good. Or something that you can create new substances.
Any suggestions??? :D
Thanks so much in advance!
We ALWAYS get the same things and it is alwasy $6.50. On the bank statement it shows that on 1/22 Java Crew ran our card for that amount twice. We have never gone twice in one day.

Why is it significant?
Do you mention this at all, or are you just happy for your friend?
Say you're the friend who's dating the person.
How would you feel if your bff basically told you they were repulsed by the person you're seeing?

On Feb. 5, my landlord taped a letter to our door stating that the rent was going up starting in March. Well, upon seeing this, I went to the apartment office (the same day) and gave notice that I would be leaving at the end of Feb. when my lease is up. They are trying to charge me rent for the first week of March, as well as a $50 proration fee, because we didn't give them 30 days notice.
How in the world were we supposed to give them 30 days notice, if we didn't know our rent was going up until the 5th? What should I do? I would simply refuse to pay, but I don't want it to affect my credit!

And if they hadn't been skating on both rinks and taking up the whole place it wouldn't have been a concern, but there was just nowhere to escape them... I just don't see why they had to be in every inch of the place or why I and all of the other skaters should be expected to dodge them the whole time.
So am I rude for not wanting to get out of the way or was he just being silly? I certainly don't want to be the asshole of the skating rink, but I'm not going to let people walk all over me for the sake of courtesy either.

This is kinda morbid but my stepmom (red_girl_42) and I were talking about it so I'm wondering your opinion TQC:
Hypothetically you have a child who is 3-4 years old. You work full time so he/she is in daycare. Its the first of the month, so you make your payment to the daycare facility (lets say its $400 a month or $100 a week). Your child then dies the next week. Would you get $300 back because technically your child wasn't being taken care of for those last 3 weeks?

1)But is it just me, or are places like oldnavy and gap way over priced?
40 bucks for a SHIRT?! This thing had better last me until the fucking COWS come home!
I don't see how yall city folk do it. Even the stuff on clearance does really seem to be on clearenced (well, some stuff is but others stuff...) (happy now? It's be fixed.)
2) Why is it that I paid two of my credit cards off two days ago (one on line and one over the phone) and made a partial payment on the third and neither of the two paid off ones have any credit on it, but the third does?
3) When buying trousers online, and never having bought them from said store before, is it best to go a size or two above what you normally do? (I ask because at walmart I'm a size 8, but I once bought a pair of size 16 (yes 16) surfer pants from somewhere because I matched it up to my hips and they looked like they might fit but when I got them home, they were to small.)
I work with a girl who is 19, in a committed relationship, and just found out that she is preggers by said boyfriend. Her family is notorious for being unable to keep secrets so they aren't even trying to keep it quiet. But I thought women tried to keep it quiet the first trimester. 4) Is this normal; telling people as soon as you've found out, or is it just cliche`d to wait for the first trimester to be over before you start telling people about it?
5) Am I getting better at tl;dr, getting worse, staying the same?
