What makes it so messy?
How messy do you let your room get before you clean it?

I was going to see about staying with my uncle in my college's town for that time but this past weekend he made highly inappropriate suggestions to my sister so now I really have no desire to live with him.
I have no where else to stay here but I have a job here and need that. Last break I was having a somewhat breakdown from homesickness and said job let me find people to work all of my days for the nearly two month period so I could go home (300 miles from here).
I was thinking that I could try to do that again, or if not quit that job, go home, get a full time job work and come back and try to get the original job back. I have no idea and it's worrying me so much I can't sleep.
What would you do TQC?
Have you ever been in a similar situation? If so, what did you do? Did it work out in the end?
(For those that don't know him, or know him only by one of his characters: IMDb.)
If you have, do you regret it? Are you glad you know? Did your insurance turn you down, stating whatever you got tested for is "pre-existing"?
"Sept. 15-An individual in the Campus Center reported a stolen bag with $2,500 in it after it was left on a table unattended. University Police compiled a report."
If you had a bag with $2,500 inside it, would you leave that bag unattended in a university campus center?
Sept. 2-A caller in [freshman] Quad requested to be examined by [university's EMT team] to see if the party was suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning. The Physical Plant Dept. reported that it was only steam from a dryer steam leak. The party was transported to [nearby] Hospital.
Have you ever mistaken steam for carbon monoxide?

Its also John Lennons birthday today. Tonight I will be celebrating with my pseudo-boy, we will drink Irish Whiskey and I get frisky with eachother and I'll be playing some Lennon songs on my guitar and singing my little heart out.
2) What will you be doing tonight in honor of the one who was the Walrus?
3) If you aren't going to celebrate Lennons birthday, do you celebrate any celebrity/rockstar/musician type on their birthday or deathday..just in memory, paying respects and what not?
4) If you had those thin crust spinach pizzas from Trader Joe's, what would you put on them to embelish the already out-of-this-world flavors? Crumbled Feta? Brie? Black olives? KALAMATA? OO..pine nuts!
5) at 11:30pm I drove all the way across town to pick up my friend who was smashed drunk. His other option was to walk a long long way home, which could have got him arrested for being drunk in public. I took him home, cuddled up in bed with him, but couldn't sleep so went home. How awesome of a friend am I? How mad should I be if he doesnt call me tomorrow to thank me profusely and offer to come spend Lennons day with me?
I just walked into the kitchen for a drink and as soon as I opened the fridge a cat face-off started a few feet away from me.
Would you say that the Disney version of Wind in the Willows was a little bit...gay? As in, Toad may have been a homosexual, or at least experimenting with his gender? It's my favorite Disney movie, not in a small part because so much of what they say and do can be taken out of context and immediately becomes comic gold, and I'm just wondering if anyone else sees it too.
Although it is pretty annoying when people over-analyze cartoons, so I apologize in advance.
What's the weather like where you live?

2) Some friends and I had been talking about renting a house when my lease on my apartment is up in April. Now one of said friends wants to bring his current girlfriend into it, ie have her be a housemate. They've broken up once before. How not smart of an idea could this potentially be?
3) I have a date Saturday and, of course, my face decided it would be nice to break out. Quick fix cures, Dr. Tee-kew-sea?

My dog likes to lick the cabinets in the kictchen, and all of the kitchen chairs. We call it 'helping mommy clean'. My dog also prefers to be carried like a baby. Her favorite treats are blueberries. If we move anything in the house, the cat must inspect it, climb over it, and then groom herself on it. When we put the Christmas tree in, it can really confuse her because she doesn't know what to do with it. My cat also thinks of herself as very dignified and refuses to play, but if there are any flies in the house, she will play with them for hours.
2. What was the last thing you said out loud?
So far I've come up with something about how having cancer saves you so much time in your day, since you don't have to shave anymore, and what would happen if someone you hated shaved their head to "support" you and now you have to be nice to them. I'm also thinking there's a joke somewhere about how good one becomes at vomiting, but I'm not sure how that joke would work yet.
Do you have any ideas, TQC? Just general areas, you don't actually have to write a joke or anything.
I'd be scared of werewolves.

Non serious answers plz.
However, the past couple of years- the more stories i hear about "seniority figures" trying to be all "gawd-like" and ending up acting like blockheads, the more discouraged i feel to work in this field. It seems like only 2 out of the 10 people in this profession are sincere in what they do and they're truly in it for the "right" reasons. I feel like, once i enter in that field - i might be fighting a losing battle; more/less- dealing with a bunch of money grubbing idiots. I don't want to be judged nor stereotyped at the end. I think the number one concern i have that has kept me from entering into this field is the fear of being wrong.
Have you ever felt like this before TQC? What should I do?
Do you say "Yom KIPper" or "Yom Kip-POUR?"
(Yes, I know what the difference is, and why they're both ok/correct.)
I say "Yom Kipper" since that's how my mom always says it. lol.
And have you ever heard someone wish someone else a "happy Yom Kippur?"
I have. Too many times.
Serious and non serious answers both!

We have never stopped talking to each other. It seems to be impossible for either of us to do. I still love him.. and I know he still loves me. We both separatly came to the conclusion that he has bipolar disorder and suffered a manic break. Although he seems to be coming down now, he is still seeing that girl and we are still not "together."
I recently read a book called "What Comes Up" by Judy Eron. Her story of living through a manic episode that her husband went through was so similar to what happened in my life that it terrified me. Her husband ended up killing himself because the depression he went into after his manic phase was so deep.
My brain tells me that I can't stay around and wait for him to get help if he doesn't want it. He is very anti-doctor/anti-medication and even though he admits he's bipolar, he won't admit to me or himself that he is out of control. However, I miss him all of the time. I want him in my life. I feel that I am willing to deal with this illness in the future---but I don't know if he will. When do I put my foot down and say, you can't have your cake and eat it too? Why is it so hard for me to do that already? I'm so afraid of what will happen if I do that... and, everytime I work up the nerve to try, he is always is in such a good mood I can't even try.
Here are my questions: Have any of you been in a relationship with a bipolar individual? Am I just holding on to something that isn't there? Could I really be tricked that much by my heart? How long can I be on this rollar coaster?
P.S. any other good books you can recommend would be wonderful.
EDIT: I'm really not looking for help on a diagnosis here. There really isn't a need for me to fully explain why he or I believe his is bipolar and all of his symptoms. I also really hate feeling like I need to defend him- which is what always happens when I ask for opinions on this subject. No one can know what goes on in a relationship- nor can I pretend to be able to explain it in a livejournal entry. We did not just break up because he wanted to go sleep with another girl-- there were other reasons. I apologize if that wasn't clear. I'm not blind and I'm not just listening to excuses for his behavior. If this wouldn't have had any details of his manic break, if I just would have asked: Have any of you been in a relationship with a bipolar individual? What are the major hardships that you have had to deal with in these relationships? Are there any sources that have provided you with support? I feel that these comments wouldn't have been so harsh.
You've been turned into a half human/half animal mythological creature. What are you?
So, do you think dyslexia is partially a symptom of Western learning, or do you think some countries don't bother to diagnose it and just dub people illiterate, or what?
Where are you from and do you know a lot of dyslexic people?
1. What do you think of the term "african american"? As I understand, it now went out of style and "black" is preferred.
2. Well, how about the word "black", when referring to persons of black african ancestry?
3. Obviously "nigger" is a racial slur and is unacceptable, but it all originates from"niger", which is latin for "black". Thus, in a number of cultures variants of 'niger' are the normal terms for persons of black african origin. In US "negro" used to be the norm and, as I understand, was not insulting. How about now, what do you think of the word "negro"?
4. Russia, for example, used "negr" to refer to blacks; it's not considered to be an insult. What do you think of people in other countries using such variants of "niger"? While speaking their language, do you think they should immediately switch to using a different term when they move to or visit the US?
5. To get a better insight at your answers, of which race/ethnicity are you?
1. I think it's stupid for a number of reasons. a) There are white people from africa. Are they African Americans? b) Should all people in US be termed according to the continent they come from? I was born in Europe, but my ancestors (some 2000 years ago) are from Israel. So should I be a European American or a Middle-Eastern American? I prefer being 'white' when the need arises to differentiate between folks of different skin colours.
2. I think this should be the norm. It's not insulting and it's not silly.
3. It sounds a little odd to me. Probably because of the connotations the word "nigger" has come to bear.
4. I'm not sure re this one. On one had, people should try not be insulting to others, even if they don't mean to be. On the other, folks here should be understanding of other cultures and shouldn't be offended when no offense is meant. Yup, I don't know...
5. Mostly white.. :)
UPDATE: As some of you seem to be taking it as a joke - please don't. I'm genuinely interested in the topic. So if you've got nothing of value to contribute, just ignore the post.
Anyway, now the kitten is running around the apartment and meowing really loudly, two things she NEVER does. This kitten is freaking out. Is this kitten post-traumatic stress disorder? She doesn't seem to actually be hurt, but I can't tell. What is going on/ what should I do?
ETA: My roommate came home, and the kitten seems ok now, it appears her tail is just scraped. If she still seems like she's in pain tomorrow, we're going to call the vet. Thanks!
2. Has anyone here ever studied abroad for any legth of time? Any tips for someone going for the first time?
1) How do you make it so your songs don't all start to sound similar? Is it all about the chord progression or what?
2) Do you tend to write songs that are directly related to things you are going through or feelings you're feeling or have felt etc? Or do you write character songs? (You know like "Boy Named Sue", Cash has a loot of character songs).
3) If you generally write one or the other (personal songs/character songs), do you ever try to write the other or something totally out of your zone? Do you succeed generally or just give up and stick to what you know?
4) Any other tips/tricks you use when songwriting?

Back in May, I applied for a job that sounded just perfect for me. I found out about it rather late and faxed my resume in just two days before the deadline. Well, I never heard back from them, not even for a phone interview, and then the start date came and went so I gave up on it. I ended up getting a job at the same company, a lower position with less pay and responsibility, but I liked it okay anyway. I eventually became friends with the person who got the job I had originally applied for (we'll call her A). It turns out that at the time of her hiring, she was already employed by the company and the week that I had faxed my resume in, the HR director was out of town and part of A's responsibility at the time was collecting the faxes. She flat out told me that when she saw a competitor's resume that was better/more qualified than hers, she simply threw it out to better her chances of getting the position. I'm 99.9% sure she did that with mine because, honestly, I am definitely more qualified for the job than she is. I'm kind of fuming, and I guess now the question is... do suck it up and let it go? Do I tell her that I had applied for that job? Do I tell her boss?
Edit: thanks for the advice. I guess I'm just going to keep quiet. It HAS been almost six months and I don't have any evidence anyway. I'll just keep an eye on her... and put laxatives in her coffee every morning. Ha, just kidding.
I waited an hour and my headache still didn't go away. So I ate some food and drank a couple glasses of water and took two more Tylenol.
After another hour, my headache is still present. Wtf? How can I get rid of it aside from smoking a blunt or having a beer?
Also, anyone know any pressure-point remedies that actually work? HALP :(
