So guys... i need a new job, asap. i've been thinking about "work at home" jobs, but i'm wary of them, and rightfully so; most of them are scams. i know that legit ones exist, it's just so hard to find one.
Here's one though, that i'm not sure about. What do yall think?
Have any of you ever tried a "work from home" job? Opinions?
side note: A) not sure if it's against rules to post this link, and if so, sorry 'bout that and B) i in no way, shape, or form work for this company / am trying to spam the community. i just want to know what yall think.
Edit: got rid of the link, so it's not spammin' the community. So is there something else out there that yall recommend for at home work then?
Has anyone every opened a bag of sunflower seeds and found a few mishapen grey blobs of sunflower-y material? Usually covered in sunflower seed dust and taste kind of sour/bitter? What the hell ARE those and why are they so goddamn tasty?
A guy I look up to just sent me this quote "In the long run, men only hit what they aim at. Therefore, though you should fail immediately, you had better aim at something high" - but to be honest TQC, I haven't slept in days and my brain is currently out of service.
I switched ISPs last week but they didn't give me any installation instructions. I basically winged it with what I knew to change of my settings. I changed the modem settings, but I wasn't really sure of what I was up to with the windows connection part of it.
The result is that everything works for me during the day, except that when I restart my PC every morning I have to go into the modem settings page and keep renewing the settings. They're all already saved there and the green light indicator is on, but my web pages don't load unless I do that step. Can anyone help me resolve this? It would save me spending some time on hold. Thanks :)
Have you ever been reading an entry on your friends page or just a random blog where someone was trying build up suspense by drawing out the story and it was just annoying and you wanted to yell "FUCKING GET TO THE POINT ALREADY"? And then when you get to the end and read the end of the story you were like WHY THE FUCK DIDN'T YOU JUST WRITE THAT INSTEAD OF ADDING TWO PARAGRAPHS MORE THAN YOU NEEDED TO IT? Does that sort of thing irritate you?
Okay, I am getting a tattoo sometime soon. A friend of mine is training to be a tattoo artist, so I'm free meat (I will buy her a really nice dinner if she refuses to take money, though) - I'm trying to decide what I want. TQCers, will you vote for what I should get?
1. This purple thing on the album cover below:
on my right wrist. The Dirtbombs are my favorite band EVERRRRR, and nobody will know what the hell it is unless they know who the band is. I might get the band's name in impact font below it, but IDK, probably not.
I'm new to this whole question-posting malarkey, so hellooo. My query: do you find that glasses without adjustable nose pads/nose pads at all hurt the bridge of your nose or dig in too much? I'm trying to figure out if it's just a design problem that I can't get used to (because it's the first pair in my life that hasn't had them), or because of the weird shape of my nose, which has a slight, slight bump? It's driving me nuts, so I'm thinking of just taking them back. The frames aren't even that heavy - they're light plastic.
I would post photos for illustration/clarification, but the cat chewed through my camera-to-laptop data cable.
What current trends do you feel out of touch with? Do you think you'll ever cave?
I do not use Twitter, and I'm not a big fan of the Wii. My own mother has a wii. When Myspace first came out, I was very much against it out of an lj-loyalty, but I ended up making one to be able to look at other peoples'. However, I really have no interest in Twitter and hope to remain that way.
What do you do when you have a day almost completely to yourself?
I work/have school every single day, but only 1 class and no work on Wednesdays. So far today I've cleaned, and I am hopefully going to start some homework now.
Do you have a trusted site like http://forlater.net/ or http://www.memotome.com/ ? Cause I'm looking for something like that, just because I need to remember a few things (not like birthdays and stuff, I can remember them), but like computer things, that I usually end up forgetting. So I want one that I know will work and that wont give out my e-mail address. So, any suggestions? OK Thanks :)
when it's time to go to bed, are you usually yawning and tired and ready for sleep? it seems like i'm never tired when i need to be getting to sleep, no matter when i got up that day, and i'm starting to think that's not normal. i'm also starting to think i have a sleep disorder. : /
What are you favorite healthy food recipes/websites/communities? If you've got a recipe, it's got to have (sorry for being so specific) no mushrooms, tomatoes unless it's sauce, spinach, italian dressing, or tofu. I try to please everyone I cook for :3
Not that you guys aren't a barrel of fun...but does anyone know of any other LJ communities where people can ask questions/need advice and get actual serious answers from people who are there to give advice/help people?
This place is good for a laugh and entertainment when I'm bored, but I'm curious to find some place else more serious and less snarky.
No offense ;)
*sits back and waits for a barrage of non-serious answers mocking me and my super long sentences*
If you had to guess based on your lifestyle and health, how old will you live?
For example, if you smoke 2 packs/day, have a life-altering illness, work at a very risky job, text message while you drive on the highway, and have lots of stress in your life, etc you might guess lower.
If you do yoga daily, eat very balanced meals, have only fulfilling relationships, and work from home or live in a rural area without much traffic, you might guess higher.
--- For me, I'd say 70. Slightly under life expectancy. From age 15-23 my life was RIDICULOUSLY stressful and on top of it I binge drank and smoked a pack/day for 3 years. I also (despite being thin at the time) never ate healthy or stepped foot in a gym until after college. Now, however, I'm financially secure, have very healthy relationships in my life, drive safely, work out almost daily and monitor my nutrition. I'm sure the earlier years took their toll on my heart but I do what I can to stay healthy (and happy) now.
I have a huge kink in my neck/shoulder, and I can barely turn my head to the left without wanting to die. It hurts so bad. :( Something needs to crack but I can't figure out where, and I can't twist/turn/move to figure out where. ARGH
What's on today's agenda?
I'm getting my GA driver's license today, hooray! I also need to go to the DMV to figure out how to get my uncle's car from PA to GA without tags (he took the tags off already/surrendered them to the DMV, and I obv can't get GA tags for it until I register it... which I can't do until I get down here with the car...). And then I need to clean the kitchen, do homework, clean my room and pack for this weekend.
Uh, I accidentally washed the receipt stating I paid rent this month (I forgot to take it out of my pocket). How much will this screw me if there's some weird problem and they say we never paid? This has never happened before, but still. We always pay cash. D:
If you were my sunglasses, where would you be? :( Assume that you are not in any of my purses or schoolbags. ummmmm, nevermind. I am blind and didn't see them when they were, in fact, in one of my purses. >:T
What's the last thing you lost? Did you find it? Where was it?
Should I take a Saturday 8:15 to 11:15 class next fall semester? Has anyone taken Saturday classes and if so, how did you like them? ETA: nevermind. I just realized if I did this, I'd be taking 9 classes and it'd be a credit overload. I hate dealing with my school, so it'd just make it harder. I'll just go next Spring semester.
Also, is anyone else having trouble loading livejournal, or is it just my crappy school wifi?
So, I have a date with a really awesome girl on late Friday night. Problem is, I'm low on funds and don't get paid until next week. The only stipulation is that some small amount of beer is involved (we're both big beer fans). What sort of stuff could we do?
I live like a 45 min trip away from my parents. I love my mom but have issues with both my dad and my sister, particularly the latter, and don't want to go over for Easter. Is there any somewhat reasonable excuse I can give my mom for not coming?
i need a day planner. i want a cute one. i like owls and bright colors. where should i go to find this? not too expensive, though, i'm not a Rockefeller, sadly. also, it doesn't have to have owls and bright colors.
I need your advice! I've been looking for a job for a few months. I have an interview for running extremely overpriced childrens' parties. However, this may end up being a strictly weekend deal. I can only see the guy that I'm dating on the weekends.
Should I turn down this job and look for something during the week? Or should I just take it and try to squeeze in a date on one of my weekend days?
To those of you who are full-time students: do you work during the school year? How many hours per week?
he is: -outdoorsy -adventurous -creative -badass -environmentaly friendly
and likes: -to snowboard -to simply be outside -to play drums/bass -to make good food -to work on veggie garden -to listen to music -practice "green" morals -also smoke the green...haha -useful homemade things
i'd like to make him somthing to help in the kitchen or backyard, perhaps buy something related to his other interests. my friends and i are already planning on baking a badass cake.
PLUS he's turning 21. which doesn't happen too often.
I have a question! Masterbation has become boring and mundane. Any tips to make it better? I do it so much it's starting to just bore me. It's so.. unexciting. Help me fall back in love with my vagina.
i currently reside in a student co-operative home and love every aspect of it. i believe it's an experience everyone should have to understand the importance of community. too many people are shut off from society and interaction in our technology and independence-focused world.
ED: this is not a commune. right across the street from campus in a old sorority house.
my best friend is dating another close friend of ours. she is a whirlwind of chaos and upset, and i am worried that this will end badly, and said so. he thinks i am just being a jealous girl, and harsh words were exchanged during our last phone conversation. i want him to know that i am just trying to look out for him, but after that convo i don't think he'll be inclined to listen to me.
how do i apologize/make this okay? edit for clarification: he's not answering the phone/replying to IM. i'm trying to figure out if i should just leave a message or email or what?
I'm graduating on May 24th. I was thinking about possibly doing a dinner at a family style restaurant (ie. order a couple of the packaged deal meals). I figured this may be more cost effective for everyone involved. Here's the question: am I going to be expected to pay for all of it? No one else in my family can afford to and the other people who would be coming are friends and coworkers.
Up until at least 2004 there was a website where unsigned/independent (and maybe not?) artists could host their music with a bio (very similar to the music portion of myspace today), and for free the public could download these songs. You could also just listen to clips or sometimes full songs, without downloading.
This site had been around forever. 1994 I think?
I also think the website was an initialism, like imdb.com or ohhla.com
Anyone know what I'm talking about?
This place may still be around, I just haven't been there for suresies since 2004. PureVolume was founded in 2004.
I'm starting a garden this year, and I made my garden larger than what is strictly necessary for what I plan on growing. (It didn't seem too big until I actually thought about it. I'm not very good at thinking.)
As such, I have two extra rows, three if I change my mind about two rows of carrots.
I plan on growing (or at least trying to grow) the following:
Tomatoes Bell peppers Carrots Onions
What are your suggestions on other (legal) things I should grow?
(Difficulty probably won't dissuade me, as seeds aren't very expensive and I probably won't have anything better to do most of the time.)
Every evening, from around 4-10 PM, my neighbor downstairs plays very loud music. Very, very loud. So loud, that my keys on my keyboard rattle, and stuff on my walls shake, I shit you not. I've already complained once to the office, and all they said was 'Uuugh, that guy again'. I've asked him once, and he turns it down for all of 5 minutes, before blaring 'Red Red Wine' again for the 9th time in one evening.
I want to call the cops, but after asking me if I lived alone (I said no, but I've yet to have a guy over to reinforce this lie), he told me to never call the cops on him due to his loud music. No, really, he said that. He scares me, but this is a) giving me a headache, b) affecting my sleep/studying.
Any suggestions at all? I'm at a loss.
*edit* Since you all are saying call the cops anyways, another question. Will I have to ID him, and will he see me? When I was in Scotland, I had to ID a guy who tried to break in our apartment. Not sure I'd want a guy who lives below me knowing I ratted him out.
I was going to see a movie with a guy tonight and I was all excited and after I got out of the shower with my silky legs and amazing hair I checked my phone to see I had a missed call and a voicemail from him saying he had been obligated to go to a family thing but then it was cancelled and then not cancelled so he couldn't make it.
TQC, was he feeding me a line, or do you think he was for real?
What is the... the word for the kind of person a rapist/murderer/whatever attacks? Not victim, but if they are a serial rapist, they have a type. I'm almost certain there's a word for it, but I cannot figure it the fuck out. D: D: D:
Terrible people live behind us! They have a beautiful, sweet dog that they keep locked up in a small space literally 24/7. They feed it, and that's it. We constantly see the women taking walks by herself. The family is always out playing in the backyard while the dog watches longingly from behind the fence of the enclosure. They could AT LEAST give it access to the whole backyard.
We called someone about it, and they said they couldn't do anything. Sometimes when the family is outside, I bring all my dogs outside and play with them, hoping to influence their son or something, but it doesn't work.
I need to get my makeup professionally done on Friday - I've never done this before, any recommendations on where to go? I know Macy's does makeup - anyone gotten makeup done there before? What about Sephora? Thaaaaanks.
Edit: Can you just pay for a makeover at a store, or do you also have to buy the makeup?
I have been seeing this one model in magazines a lot, she has HUGE eyes and a small mouth. She also red curly hair and her face reminds me of a Renaissance painting. I tried to google but was unsuccessful. Does anyone know who I am talking about?
My roommate has a bag of Sara Lee bread that we have had in the room-- not refrigerated-- for "months." It's not molded at all and it is kind of freaking us out. Why is it not molded? It should totally be awful by now. Is it super-bread?
What is the male version of the cougar? You know, the older woman that digs the younger generations?
Why do parents let their children roll around on the floors of bathrooms and stores?
I was in a fitting room in Macy's today and the girl in the stall next to me had her little brother (?!) with her. He was rolling around on the floor just staring at me and her while she changed. I told the Mom standing outside the stall to make him stop looking at me before I started to change. Would you care if a little kid was staring at you? I've had this happen in bathrooms before; it's not acceptable behavior, is it? Also, I know for a fact that people have shit and pissed in those fitting rooms. It's not really the same as a kid rolling around in dirt.
