has worrying/anxiety every made you physically sick? i have vomited 8 times in the past three days and my stomach will not stop aching and my migraine is persistent. ALLOW ME TO COMPLAIN. thank you. i love you all.
when you were a kid (if applicable), did you play recreational soccer in a league? how about any rec sports?
if so, was your team good? what were you called? what position did you play? were YOU good? did you enjoy it? did the moms all arrange snack schedules so you got caprisuns and rice krispies and stuff?
how old were you when you first had sex? were you still on your rec sports team?
Do you know of any guys who speak with a "gay voice," but who claim to be straight? I met this guy a couple weeks ago and was like, 99% sure he was down with the cock, but I went on his Facebook and evidently he's "interested in women." So idk. Is he horribly in denial, or is it possible that he's just a straight guy with a really high-pitched voice, a slight lisp, and flamboyant dance moves?
I went to the bar with my friend today. It was terrible! I'm not a bar person...I'm a hang out at bon fires, get stoned, have fun with friends and friends of friends type of person. She's a drinker only, likes to dress fancy and expensive, go out to dance to bad music type of person.
I went to the bar because she recently got dumped and I thought I'd cheer her up by accepting the offer. We went with another mutual friend. I look like I definitely don't belong there. People also thought the same. A chubby chest tattooed, dreadlocked girl with no rap dancing skills among a lot of skinny bar stars and weird guys.
She got very drunk and ended up giving her number out even though she asked us to watch out for her to not do those things. I didn't want to interfere but I thought I would just let her know that if she didn't want this guy to hang around to let me know and I'd ask him to leave since she wouldn't do it herself. She told me she wasn't sure...that he was "too short for her" and she didn't like that he was touching her.
I smacked his hand off of her because I've been harassed at bars (why I stopped going) I got protective of her. He left and she got mad at me. I told my other friend I was going and to tell her goodbye. They left shortly after I did because this guy was getting way too in her face about wanting to be with her and ended up catching me in time to give me a ride home.
When I got out of the car after he drunkily implying that MY unhappiness and awkwardness at the bar was the result of me being tired and "next time we'll go earlier" I told her I would not be going again any time soon if ever. She got annoyed at that. I'm supposed to see her tomorrow but am not really in the mood. She's completely oblivious to what happened tonight.
How should I tell her I don't want to see her until I'm calmed down? I know I'll forgive her, I don't want to give her a hard time but I just need some time because I know she'll be overly apologetic and in a few days I'll be over it....lesson learned.
What do you need to vent about? Go on..let it out!
It's actually my TAs who are on strike, but now everything got so confused since the professors are part of the same union and therefore on strike too. I tried to ask one of my TAs if my exam is going to be pushed back. I have an exam this coming Tuesday, and am scared that if the TAs settle on Monday, they are all going to say "TS, it's in the syllabus on this date so we are doing it" never mind that we have not been told of the format of the exam or the material which is going to be covered in the exam.
*sigh* What to do? Should I study for the exam and go there on the date? BTW if anyone knows the rules, I am at York University in Toronto, Ontario.
Why is my MySpace all effed up? I went to change my profile around and now my fonts are all teeny tiny small and every time I try and figure out what the hell is wrong and "unexpected error" occurs. Why does Tom hate me so? D: D: D:
Okay...since my post seems to be lame, why not make it even lamer and ask about an Informercial product? Has anyone purchase/tried the InStyler?
I work with kindergarteners. Yesterday I was bent over helping a little girl with something and I hear one of the other girls say my name behind me. So, I just kind of turn my head around and ask what she needs. "Could you pull your pants up?" Cue me being all D: and standing up fast and pulling my pants up, before regaining composure and saying, "Could you see my bottom?" Lots of giggling followed.
So, when's the last time you unintentionally mooned someone?
Hey so... my default icon has changed to the one I'm using, and I've never seen it before in my life. Is this a new LJ bug or should I go about changing my password and figuring out who got into my account?
ETA: I am seeing a lame business sucks icon. Normally is Neil Patrick Harris doing his wavy finger trick.
When was the last time you felt total bliss and contentment?
My male works graveyards and we don't see each other much during the week because I work during the day. He's home right now, but he's asleep and I can't cuddle him cause I'm full of energy. What should I do to pass the time while he sleeps?
Would you read your child's diary? ...a parent's diary? ...a blog of someone you know at work and not tell them (regularly)?
Would you specifically look for a diary or personal writing of a loved one/close relative/friend and read as much of it as you could?
How big is your personal space? Most people have an area around their body that they don't like others to invade unless specifically invited to do so.
How comfortable are you with inviting people into your personal area? For instance someone you know comes in your room/space and touches your things, what's your reaction? Do you say/do anything or only simmer quietly until they leave?
With all the hype on the book, I've been curious to read it, so I got a copy. However, I'm 200 pages in an all its about so far is Bella's infatuation with Edward, and vice versa. I'm starting to get bored, I don't really find any interest or anticipation in seeing where their relationship goes. So I'm also wanting to ask,
Does anything more interesting happen in the books, something more than the focus on Bella and Edward? How much longer 'til I'm there?
Have you ever lied on your CV (resume)? I haven't worked in a few years and I need to create a phantom job...but it needs to be something that can't really be followed up for references etc. Any ideas?
I am looking for a necklace for everyday wear and I'd like something organic, subtle but a bit different. What do you think of this? Also, it's on an 18 inch chain but there's an option to go up to 24 inches, what length do you think would be best?
Another necklace advice question. It's my best friend's birthday and she's into very simple jewelry and I'd like to get her a necklace that's very simple but different. Anyone have anything in mind? I love Etsy so bonus points if it's from an Etsy seller. I was thinking something with an Italian or Latin quote on it...I don't know, I may end up just getting her a gift card to Barnes and Noble!
ETA: Oh my God, I REALLY want this one but that's a lot of cash...opinions on this one?
have you ever stopped talking or limited talking to your friends for a while because you where going through a hard time?
my friends are pissed at me for doing this. i tried to explain to them i cant be there for them if i cant even be there for myself, maybe i am being a bad friend but i cant think of anything else to do.
You will develop your own research project on a literary or historical topic related to journalism and literature. Possible topics range from extended studies of authors on the syllabus to examinations of contemporary phenomena such as wartime journalism, reports on terrorism, reality TV, etc.
What's my topic?
Don't suggest anything about war or politics. I hate them both.
Alright I'm 17 and just got an OWI last night. Now I'm wondering, should I just do the 90 days (pro-its a lot cheaper and I wont be dealing with the bullshit for so long con-I'm a senior at an alternative high school, if I go in for 90 days I wont graduate with my class and will have to go back to school next year) OR should I do the whole probation thing. I haven't gone to court yet but a few of my friends have gotten OWI and it will be atleast a year or the whole AA, JAMS, drug test bullshit, my family and I are extremely broke and I really dont want to go more into debt. All the court costs and drug test fees are really friggen expensive.
TQC, have you ever pickled any foods? if you have: what have you pickled? do you have any favorite things to pickle? do you have any pickling tips? ETA: in your experience, what items undergo the most drastic visual change when you pickle them?
whether you have or haven't: do you like pickled foods? what is your favorite? are there any commonly-pickled foods that you hate or that you would never try?
I am going to try pickling things for the first time! I'm excited.
When you were in middle/high school, did you and your friends make up nicknames for guys you liked so you could talk about them without anyone knowing? What were the best ones? When did you grow out of this phase?
How did you celebrate your birthday in high school?
For NaNoWriMo I need one of my characters to have some sort of (magical/Heroes-like) power. Except he doesn't know he has one yet, so it's going to be a total surprise when he finds out (e.g. he throws up his hands and something happens). I don't want to use the power to freeze or throw fire, but I want it to be something kinda like that - dramatic. Ideas?
If you own a dog, are you the type of person who dresses it up in sweaters or other not-entirely-dog things? Recently considered addendum: What kind of dog is it? "Adorable", while adequate, is not really what I'm looking for. Pictures would be nice, too.
What do you think of those people on YouTube and other video-observing places who play high notes and sing in screechy voices to make their dogs howl uncomfortably?
Should I go out to eat, or have microwave pizza for dinner?
if you live in the united states, what sort of history classes did you have were you required to take in high school? what state are you from? did you go to a public or private school? also, what were gym classes like? how often did you have to take them? at my school (in new york) we had to take gym every other day for all four years. wiki tells me most of you probably only had one year. : (
actually if you don't live here, feel free to answer anyways. it won't help with my paper but i'm interested in what other countries generally teach in school.
So I'm doing a feminism awareness study break (study breaks are basically just half-hour to hour-long activities held on weeknights at college to distract students from their work), and I wanted to show a brief film with feminist themes. Anyone have any ideas? I'm not necessarily looking for something ultra-extremist-feminist, but something more along the lines of "The Stepford Wives." (I would show that one but it's a little long for a weeknight.)
How do you feel when you've done a test/mock exam/the real thing and the results come back and you find out that you got all the hard questions perfect, but you fucked up and gave ridiculously wrong answers to the simple questions that are pretty much no brainer ones?
Does it happen to you often?
I am apparently a great source of lulz for my teachers. But it isn't funny when I nearly fail because I haven't got enough easy questions to pass - then I'm a great source of facepalm for my teachers.
Yesterday I asked about your love life, today I ask your sex life. How's your sex life?
Edit: Because I didn't hear the lady knock the first two times, I did not open the door to see what's she wants.
She's been there for half an hour and she keeps knocking. You'd think she'd get it the first ten minutes that NO ONE'S HOME and leave, so WHY IS SHE STILL KNOCKING?!!
Last time we had this guy knocking and calling for two hours. Wtf, TQC?
I have a paper due on Monday for which I have to turn in an electronic copy on a CD.
When I insert the blank CD and go to file save-as I'm told that it's the "wrong parameter" and then that I don't have access to that folder and should "see the administrator." This is my own laptop on which I've burned many music CDs...and I'm not happy right now.
I searched for other ways to go about this...was told to go under My Computer and open the CD drive from there and drag and drop the document to burn, but every time I click on the CD drive it tells me to insert a CD...which I've obviously already done. AGH!
I have a hair appointment next week. What should I do with my hair, color-wise? I'm open to anything that can be passed off as a "natural color", because of work dresscode. Hilights, multiple colors, whatever.
if you had met someone online, had exchanged pictures that were not super recent and had arranged to meet for a date would you tell the person if your looks had changed? For example your hair was different? you had grown/shaved a beard or if you had put on or lost drastic amounts of weight?
Alternatively you have met someone online, been sent pictures you are led to believe are recent and then you meet with the person and they look drastically different, and you no longer find them attractive. are you pissed off?

so exboyfriend and i seem more broken up than ever, and i really want to say bye to his mom.
is it way too dramatic to email her? something simple like "hey, looks like [her son] and i are all done. i just wanted to say thank you for everything, you've treated me so well and i really appreciate it. i'll miss you and [her daughter]! you can still call me anytime if you ever need anything."
i don't want to come off as dramatic but she's really great and the three times my ex has been in the hospital, she and i talk on the phone like every day. she's really super nice to me and it's great and i don't want to just disappear without saying goodbye.
For a 'mere' $399 (US), 23andMe will do a number of tests on your DNA and tell you about the known genetic traits you have (e.g., likelihood of getting certain diseases). Would you be interested in this? What price would it have to get down to before you'd spit in a cup for them?
Do you like to wear headbands? I never really did, but I bought some thick stretchy ones today and I think they're cute, but they feel very weird. Like if I tilt my head too fair back they are going to fly off. It also feels like it's sliding but I don't think it is. It just feels weird.
Do you prefer your hair up or down? Mine looks nicer down, but I like to think most people see me with it up.
TQC, i took some cough medicine and now i feel a bit funny and my pupils are as big as dimes. i've never reacted like this to cough medicine(though i do avoid it like the plague 'cause the taste has made me barf since i was a kid).
i just decided i'd see how easy it was to pick locks with a paper clip and got the damn thing stuck in my lock. took me about 5 minutes to get it out. ...i just really wanted my phone charger from my boyfriend's locked room. :[ guess it's lucky it was my own door that i tried it on
Dear Dr. LJ, I got a flu shot yesterday morning on my upper left arm. My shoulder has been sore since I got the shot, and just now I noticed an odd rash around the shot. I have 2 spots about the size of a quarter to the left and right of where I got my shot. The area immediately around the injection isn't red, nor is it red above or below the shot area. What is going on?

It's 2am and all the lights are off in your room. You reach for something right before you go to sleep (a drink, chapstick, whatever) and it falls on the floor right at the edge of the really dark space under your bed. Do you:
