I'm planning to double major in international affairs and German as an undergrad. I figured out if I take four classes over summer school, and 18 credits for three semesters and 15 credits for two semesters, I could graduate in '11 instead of '12.  (I'll have 61 credits already by next fall)

Should I have no life for the next two and a half years and slave to graduate early?
Should I take it easy and graduate three and a half years from now like everyone else?

Is college even worth it?
How about graduate school?

So our Sea Salt Caramel Signature Hot Chocolate code for writing on cups is SCSHC. Does that acronym not sound like some kind of school or what?

What do you hope to get for christmas, and think it's possible, but you're not sure about?

Should I have taken the purple & gold tweed hat or the blue & gold tweed hat? The purple is more of a neutral, while the blue is more of a showy accent for a plain outfit.

Has anyone ever used Music Rescue to move stuff off your iPod back onto your computer? I had an EPIC HARD DRIVE FAILURE the other day, and I'm trying to get everything back on my new drive, but Music Rescue keeps locking up so I have to start over. Is this because I have an unregistered version of the program, or does it just suck and I should find something else to use? I'm so annoyed right now. This is the FOURTH TIME I've had to start over. Ugh.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (1 being least awkward, 10 being most awkward thing in the history of ever), how awkward would it be to watch Love Actually with your mom?

(I'm debating whether to get my mom to watch it -- on the one hand, she and I loooove movies like You've Got Mail and Sleepless in Seattle and this fits right into that category, but on the other hand, there are whole plots revolving around making porn, mom's a nice little conservative lady at heart.)

My younger sister tried to dye her dyed black hair back to blonde. It is now a very scary orange color but not the usual brassiness you may get after going lighter (my violet toners are not helping).

What should she do? She can't afford to nor does she have the time (Christmas portraits later, damn) to see a professional.

If your pet had a screenname/username, what would it be?

What kind of person would your pet be? How would s/he dress?

Should I email the chick we got our new cat from on Craigslist to give him back? Do you think she'll take him back? Should we get a refund since we got him up to date on his shots and everything?

ETA: the new cat is mean to our other pets. he smacks them for no reason really randomly for just being in the same room. it has gotten to the point where the alpha cat (in icon) runs from him and the other cat howls randomly in the middle of the night from being smacked. i don't think this is fair to our established pets.

1. Last night, I was melting some white chocolate chips in the microwave. I've done this before successfully. I do it for 30 seconds, stir it, 30 seconds, stir, etc. etc. until it's done. I did it TWICE last night and both times it melted to a certain point and then got really hard and would not melt. WHAT HAPPENED??? It was in the same bowl as last time, same brand of white chocolate chips (although I tried another one afterwards and the same thing happened).

yesterday i told my friend i want to date this guy. i said, "i mean, i don't want to be with him forever, i'm not looking for anything super serious, but i'd like to be with him for a while."

and she goes, "Well, Emily, if you don't think there's potential to be with him forever, don't you think it's kind of a waste of time? Come on."

and basically said that it's pointless to get involved with someone you already know you don't see marriage with.

to which i replied O_O

TQC, do you agree?

i don't see anything wrong with dating someone you don't see a serious future with if you like each other at the time and are having fun. and you never know! maybe they will be ~the one.

Unemployment + part-time job + going to school

I found out about a week ago that I'm being laid off (our office is closing) sometime between January and this spring.

I get about two weeks severance and my vacation time paid out, so it'll be about three weeks of pay.

I'm interested in going back to school to take a three-week course to be a CNA, since my English degree is pretty much useless in this area, and being a CNA seems like a good stable job and I think I'd be good at it.

I also just got hired to wait tables part-time at a new upscale Italian restaurant in my town.

My question is:

Has anyone done this after being laid off?
Are you still able to work part-time if you are on unemployment?
How/where can I find out if my school can be paid for as a continuing education thing? I live in PA and I've googled all over and can't find a concrete answer.

The cottage where my husband and I are going on saturday for a week doesn't have a stove, lol.

It has a fridge, a microwave, and it will likely be okay-enough weather (Charleston, SC) for us to use the outdoor grill.

What would YOU put on your grocery list for shit that doesn't need to be cooked in an oven/on a stove?

Our whole family will be in Charleston for the week, too, so we'll likely be eating out occasionally. we just need a few dinner/side dish/lunch options. I'd guess we can just live off sandwiches and chips for lunch every day.

Are any of your New Year's Resolutions geared toward improving other people/things?

I am going to try to cut back on paper waste by only buying books from used bookstores or going to the library instead of buying them new.

Which leads me to my other question: How does library book donation work, exactly? If I donate books to the library, will they slap a barcode on it and stick it on the shelf or sell it in a library book sale or do something else "good" with it? Is there any chance they would just throw my book out, assuming the book isn't "inappropriate" for the library?

TQC! I stumbled upon my grandma's obituary on the internet. I've been crying for the past 2 hours. My eyes are fucked. I tried rinsing them with cool water but that hasn't done anything. They are really puffy and red. I have some visine which should take care of my eyeballs, but the skin around them will still be really puffy and red.

I'm leaving for my grandpa's house soon and I don't want my family to know I've been crying all morning. How can I get rid of the redness and puffiness quickly? Once I do my makeup the redness should be mostly invisible, but the puffiness will remain. My eyes usually stay red and puffy for HOURS after I've been crying this much.

EDIT: She's been dead since 2003, this isn't something new.

2. If you go into someone else's bathroom and their toilet lid is up or down, does it affect which way you leave it? For example, if you normally leave it up at home but you go in and it's closed, do you make sure to close it when you're done.

Either way I have to leave at 3 because they're closing the building then.

What's the weirdest thought you've had lately and where were you/what were you doing when you had it?

The other day, I was in the shower at 6:30 in the morning and suddenly I had a thought about the movie "The Day After Tomorrow." And my thought was, at 6:30 am, that the movie would have been so much better if they had shown a scene with the highways all jammed with people fleeing to go south and all of a sudden a group of Canadians blows past everyone on snowmobiles... Maybe towing some kids on an sled behind 'em. It was a weird thing to be thinking about that early in the morning.

Ham that just finished baking in the oven. Chicken wings that my grandma ordered from Wal-Mart. I don't eat anything else since I'm so picky. Tomorrow will probably be leftovers since we're not planning on going anywhere. New Year's will be pork in the crockpot, with mashed potatoes. That's what we have every year on New Year's Day.

Edit: To clarify, what I'm asking is Do you think it will adversely affect healing to get a leg tattoo in the winter?

Christmas present

1 My manfriend and I were totally useless at trying to figure out what to get each other for Christmas. I gave him his gift yesterday, and he told me it was "The nicest Christmas gift [he'd] ever been given." He told me that he would get me a tattoo if I want him to. I heart him very much and would get a tattoo that I loved. My hesitation is, though I don't foresee it happening, I worry if things go sour, I'll have a reminder of him forever. I'm... logical in that thought, right? Or should I take him up on that offer?

2 I was talking to a coworker last weekend, and somehow it came up that he's a very strict vegan. I asked if he minded cooking meat for people, and he said "No. It's a personal choice everyone has to make. I don't pretend I know better than anyone, it's just a choice I've made, like someone makes a choice to recycle or to dress in a certain style. I can't look at them and tell them their choices are wrong." A super tolerant vegan! What has blown your mind lately?

There was one teacher in the Economics department that set off just about everyone's gaydar. Dude wore pink and usually played a song at the end of each topic he had lectured to encourage us in our studies. He generally sang along and encouraged us to sing along as well.

I just narrowly avoided being arrested and charged for a for-real felony due to luck and Christmas-y cheer. I am still kind of in shock. I am back at home with my parents and no one knows but me and my roommate (and now you guys). How can I thank the Christmas-y spirits? I lucked out so hard, you guys.

Macy's. $2500 worth of party dresses. Caught with a totally insane undercover maneuver. A holding cell, a huge whopping fee, scary police officers. They let me go because the store was closing early for Christmas Eve and the police officer that came to pick up the other offenders being held actually FORGOT TO TAKE ME. So they just released me.

Edit: I would just like to clarify that I was CLEARLY being stupid, was caught, processed and fined, and was LET GO, all according to the correct procedure...I didn't evade or escape it, I'm not bragging about dodging a bullet, I'm not saying I shouldn't have been caught. I'm just really thankful that they decided not to prosecute, that's all. And no, I don't really think that stealing from an enormous corporation is the same as destroying an individual's vital property, and no, I'm not saying that what I got caught for was awesome or anything either.

i also bought a new ( 1996) car yesterday and a new (actually brand spanking new) phone two days ago. and i got my family each at least two christmas presents. i love having a job.

have you realized anything strange lately?

i have owned three cars now, and all three were paid for entirely by money i got for being hit by a car. that seems wrong a little bit, especially since all three cars have been big suv bone crushing monsters.

1. Do you know anyone who celebrates Christmas on January 7th?

2. Non-religious persons- when was the last time you attended a religious ceremony? Do you think it's douchey to flat-out refuse to attend a church service for 1 hour and upset your grandmother? Or is it more important to "be true to yourself"?

Do you ever have dreams where you are in a familiar place, but it looks nothing like it does in real life? Care to provide details or elaborate?

I had one recently where I was in Manhattan, but it looked more like suburbia. I was bar hopping, but was hitting up places that looked more like Applebee's than the chic lounges you might find in NYC.

3. What is the strangest thing you have on your desk? PIctures are lovely.
