Will you tell me some good stories about your college admissions process?
How was your applying process? How did you decide on a school? Was it a tough decision? Are you/were you happy with that decision? Any good/bad/funny/weird stories about the whole thing? Any advice?
I'm going through this right now...I just got my first news today and it was good, thankfully, but I'm started to get all nervous about the decision, and I have to wait till April to get the most of the rest. At least the hard part's over...
Rorsarch talks about this joke that he once heard; in which a depressed man asks his doctor what to do about his depression issues and the doctor tells him to go see a clown and the man says that he is that clown.
Anyone remember the joke specifically? I appreciate it :)
Is it possible or common to become nauseated from being exhausted? I am just curious, as I am super exhausted but also really queasy, but I didn't eat anything weird. And for what it is worth, dear internets, unless the baby daddy is Señor Almighty himself, I am certainly not pregnant.
I've never really considered it, cause I'm slightly insecure. But these girls came into work yesterday and they said it was a great idea and they recommended it. Seeing as how I want to travel the world but have no friends to do it with... this seems like it might be a good idea.
Have you gone traveling by yourself? Would you care to share what that was like for you?
I just realized I should probably be keeping track of my community service hours,for future reference. I already have about 200, but I don't need them for anything yet. I'll be updating fairly frequently, because I have two committee meetings twice a week for 2 hours, so on the computer probably isn't the easiest. TQC, how do I track my service hours in an organized fashion?
If you don't care, What is your favorite breakfast cereal? do you put anything on it? What kind of milk do you like?
I have really really bad stomach pain and think that I have the stomach flu along with the two icky things that go with it. what food is good to eat and stay away from? what kind of soup? I need help, ouch!!
Is it possible to know what something smells like without being able to actually identify it?
Example: I know I've smelled weed before, because someone who's smoked it was with me and mentioned it ("I SMELL WEEED!"). This has happened twice (at concerts, lol), but I obviously didn't learn to associate that "weird smell" with weed, even though it was pointed out to me on more than one occasion. So basically, if no one points it out to me, I won't realize that the "weird smell" is weed. If that makes any sense. D:
i woke up and i felt fine. i ate a poptart and drank some iced tea. a few hours later i took my vitamin & my prozac pill. now i feel nauseous, my head feels cold, and i feel like the pills are lodged in my throat.
wtf is this? and what do i do? i'm drinking water right now
I'm trying to replace one of my kitchen chairs. I have no idea where the original ones came from, but they seem fairly common. However, I cannot find them online at all.
They are shaped kind of like an S without the top part. The frame is metal and the back and seat are made of wicker on a wooden frame. I'm wondering, do you guys know if that type of chair has a specific name? or have you seen it around at all?
If you have no idea what I'm talking about or don't care..... are you currently enjoying this "heat wave" that is affecting the southern/eastern part of the US? What's it like where you are today?
Do you know of any good automotive/car communities on LJ? All I keep getting in my search results is the crazy russian communities...
How heavily do you rely on your car? I rely on mine for EVERYTHING. I hate having other people (public transportation included) take me places...like, I hate it to the point where I will have a breakdown if my car does not work.
My car decided to take a giant shit as I was trying to drive to school. Thankfully, I was only about a block from my house, so I was able to turn around and get back safely. The thing pretty much...convulsed. Shuddered. Won't accelerate smoothly, and it feels like I had no assistance in braking, just my own weight on the pedal. What's wrong with it?
I'd prefer more srs answers for the first, since idk when my parents can make it down here to check things out...but be as silly as you'd like for the rest. :P
I'm a Windows user but I'm on my sister's Mac for the day. I don't see any games like Solitaire to keep me occupied, so I want to play around with it. Obviously since it's not my computer, I don't want to download anything.
What are some cool things Macs can do that Windows can't?
My friend's conservative Christian parents found out that he is gay. His father just wrote him an email saying: he is making the wrong choice, and it is unacceptable and inappropriate; homosexuals do not exist--they are just people with low self-esteem who cannot get along with the opposite sex, and it is just a cop-out; he is making his father look bad in front of the family; he will never experience the joy of having children or the meaning of love because he is choosing not to have a family of his own; his father and mother are praying that god will open his eyes and touch his heart.
If you were my friend, would you respond? If so, how?
i am drinking a can of American Cream Soda. What I want to know is is there such a thing as Cream Soda in America? Here its a vanilla flavoured clear soda. Does it exsist in America or do Barrs (the brand im drinking) just stick 'American' on the front to make me feel like I'm drinking a cool drink?
I used to know this site where people posted homemade things they had made, kinda like a crafts site. I remember you could search the site through holiday, (they had a section for valentine's day gift ideas etc.)
Do you ever dislike it when people randomly visit with no notice?
I do sometimes. I have an anxiety disorder that is getting better, but it sometimes creeps up when I'm really unprepared for a social situation. Tonight I'm in my sweats after I've finished working out and my brother shows up with his girlfriend I've met once before.
This is also inspired by the bathing suit question. Where are some good places to buy inexpensive but cute one-piece bathing suits or tankinis? Online or offline. Can you show us a picture of your bathing suit, either from a website or of you?
Have you ever considered having sex with someone you shouldn't (would screw up friendship, possibly create DO NOT WANT dating, make you look like a slut, etc. etc.) just because you're lonely and you know they would?
Hickory dickory dock, there's a mouse in the stove. What do I do?
Edit I think I got him out. I went to make my attempt, but as the trash bag was in front of the stove, I had to move it out of the way first. I considered that he might be in there, heard some tiny noises when I moved the bag about and took that to confirm that he went trash diving. So I tied it up and took it outside. Afterwards, I rapped on the stove and heard no noises in return, so I think he's out!
1. How do you usually dress? What colours do you wear and what colours you never wear?
I like bright colours -electric blue, purple, green, pink, white, gold- mixed with black and graphic shapes. I like short skirts, hoodie dresses and cowboy boots. I could never wear anything with a paisley pattern, ugh. I also never wear yellow, orange or brown.
2. What kind of style do you like your men/women wear? I've started to like guys in simple black suits. Idk why.
Just wondering, is there an effective way to prevent yourself from getting sick if you're trapped sleeping in the same room with someone who is sick?
I just spent two nights sleeping in a hotel room with my very sick mother. Now I am back at school with a lovely cold. I washed my hands a lot over the past few days... lots of sleep... yadayada. But I am still sick. :(
i was passing by the living room where my mom is watching the apprentice.
their task today was to come up with a comic book type character for zappos. the one team came up with a really good idea. one girl came up with the concept, and another came up with a slogan. one of the donald's assistant people came in to check on them, and the girl that came up with just the slogan claimed she also came up with the concept. i was appalled. the other girl layed low because she didnt want to be inappropriate in front of the guy that was checking on them.
isnt that so fucked up?
has something like that ever happened to you? how did you handle it? did the other person get what they deserved for doing that to you?
Whenever me & my friend hang out, my friend usually drives. She lives about 15 minutes away from my house. Everytime that we hang out I have to give her gas money. (Around 5 bucks or so) This wouldn't be a problem if I had a job. Anywaaays, my bank account is getting lower & lower and I don't think I can afford to give her 5 bucks EVERY single time we hang out. Whenever I'm the one driving, she never pays me any gas money because it's my parents car & they pay to fill up the tank.
How can I tell her I want to hang out but seriously can't pay for it. Do you think this is fair?
I have a paper to write and I cannot bring myself to care enough to chose a side. So, TQC, I ask you, let us say that a church wanted to use a public park for some Easter shit. The city council said no. It (somehow) managed to work its way up to the Supreme Court. Who should I side with? The church that wants to use the park or the city council?
Since we just had a rather interesting poll about weird deal breakers in a relationship, I thought we should have a question about weird turn-ons. So, TQC, what is something strange or random thing that makes you instantly more atracted to a person? I am instantly semi-attracted to guys who sing. I also really like guys who are close to other guys. Like, if any of you have seen the pictures of Ed Westick with that guy at the basketball game, I instantly found him more attractive after seeing those. Physically, I like nice eyes.
EDIT: I mean like a close guy friend, but the 2 for 1 thing is good also ;)
You work in an office building where there is only one bathroom. This bathroom is haunted! It's not a malevolent spirit, but it still moves stuff around, flushed toilets, and turn on the faucet, etc. at random. Sometimes you can hear it talking!! It freaks you out because you are scared of ghosts.
Say you are the only one at the office working, so there is no one around to go to the bathroom with you, and you are there for a 8+ hour shift.
There's this stray cat that hangs around my house. We call him Uncle Biscuits. We came home today and one of his front legs is obviously broken. :( I don't know what to do. I can't afford to pay for his vet bill, but I really really want to take him to the vet. I also don't want to take him to the shelter because I'm sure they'll euthanize him. He's very sweet, and if I could, I'd take him in, but the shelter is already overflowing with cats as it is.
Do you think a vet would cut me a discount because he's a stray? What should I do? :(
Shit you guys, he's outside meowing. This horrible, in pain meow. :( :(
I just tried to go get him, and entice him with food, but he's either not around or doesn't want to move. I'm going to pray that he's out there in the morning so I can take him to the vet.
