Some of my favorites I seem to sing a lot around the house: First Day of My Life- Bright Eyes Hallelujah- Leonard Cohen Johnny & June- Heidi Newfield along with pretty much any Beatles song stuck in my head on that particular day.
For student teaching, I have to complete a "documentation of Christian service" (religious school, blah blah, you've heard it before). It wants me to list my "service in the community, church, mission work, etc." that I would relate to Christian service. They list Sunday school, YMCA, Habitat for Humanity, tutoring, and ministering as examples.
Um... I haven't been to church since middle school, and I don't plan on going back and getting involved anywhere this last semester. So, all I really have to put down here is peer tutoring, which is rather lame. I was considering trying to find a second job this summer, but that's not working out, so I figured... why not consider some volunteering-like things?
What are your suggestions, tqc? I'm interested in kids, music, working with people with special needs, I know braille and sign language, and I have a srs fascination with medicine that is leading me to consider that path a few years down the line.
What's the last album you spent money on? Do you prefer buying music on itunes or having the physical copy of the album? What's the most you're willing to pay for a box set put out by your favorite band?
I pre-ordered the Placebo "Battle for the Sun" box set on March 16 and I'm patiently waiting for it to arrive. I spent wayy too much money on it ( Collapse )
that a good friend that I met online and who I've been talking online and on the phone for the past weeks is unavailable?
And when I say unavailable, his phone says he can't take calls (which isn't completely surprising since he has a phone where you pay to use it and he's low in the cash department), deleted his facebook and okcupid and last time he e-mailed me was last night where he said we would talk yesterday evening and we didn't and he said he was going through lots of stresses.
I'm trying not to over think this, but I am confused?!
Can anyone from Seattle tell me what the cheapest hotel would probably be within reasonable walking distance of 1700 1st Ave S?
I'm bussing down to Seattle with my friend for a concert next week and so far the cheapest hotel I've been able to find that's close to the venue is The Roosevelt Hotel for $139/night. Just wondering if anyone would know of anything cheaper or if that's as low a rate as I'm going to get in that area.
If you're into musicals, what are some of your favorite songs from shows?
Unusual Way from Nine Moonfall from the Mystery of Edwin Drood The Light in the Piazza from the show of the same name If Only from The Little Mermaid Dangerous Game from Jekyll and Hyde Hey, Big Spender from Sweet Charity Hey There from the Pajama Game All Grown Up from Bare
Come December, I'll start my student teaching placement in secondary English. I was wondering if wearing a nice polo, dress pants, dress shoes, and a belt (and tucking it in!) is something that is acceptable to wear for a teacher? My other friend (who will be doing student teaching with me) said it's a great idea, but my other friend said that it's a terrible idea. I understand it isn't AS dressy as a shirt and tie, but sometimes I really like to mix it up. What do you all think?
Imagine that your great-aunt Matilda died and left you her house and everything inside. One afternoon, as you're sorting through all of her stuff, you find something that reveals a deep, dark, dirty, scandalous family secret. (And not the one about Uncle Bernie dressing up like a panda and jerking off into the frosting - everyone already knows about that.)
You and your friends are in an action movie. You're just about to make that iconic getaway, whether you're speeding down the road to flee the enemy (and the police, who're probably out to get you for speeding), or sliding over the hood of your car and taking off after getting into a nasty bar-fight.
Let's say someone posts a question for a specific demographic but you're not part of that demographic, do you care if that demographic is called out since you can't answer or do you not care?
Ex: For people who like toast, do you prefer butter or jelly? as opposed to... Do you prefer butter or jelly on your toast? which gives *everyone* the opportunity to participate, even if it's just to say "I don't like toast."
Following the total failure of last years advisory council election LJ has decided to have another. I am giving consideration to standing, but I am curious what sort of policies people would like to see.
I'm blind as a bat without my glasses, can't work, can't drive, can't even really ride the Metro without them. When I lost my glasses yesterday morning the same guy from that question called out of work for the day so that he could drive me to my moms house and back (~3 hour drive round trip) so I could get my spare pair and still make it to class on time.
New info change your opinion on whats up with this mother fucker?
I keep having a recurring dream (not sure if it's a nightmare, because I don't really wake up scared shitless) about me and a couple of people being stuck on a little piece on land with what seems to be a little river circling the island type thing. In the water there is gigantic snake (like the one from Anaconda) that the people and I jump in the water, aggravate, then see if we can hop on the piece of land without dying. I don't understand it, that's all there is to do in the dream. The strangest part of the dream is that the little piece of land is inside.
If your driving down the road and you see a big ass turtle (no not big assed, cause that would be weird) in the middle of the road would you pull over, stop traffic, and make everyone drive around it? or would you just grab the thing like how you see on the animal channel by the top of its shell right behind its head and get it out of the road yourself. Keep in mind how long you'd be directing traffic because they walk reeeeeaaaallllly slow.
I was a bit irked by this situation when I was in it and am now thinking I should have pulled over and moved the damn thing myself instead of waiting in a line of cars cause of that we-tad. oh wait I think my boyfriend was driving. Okay im bored. Are you?
John Farnham is back... apparently by demand! Whose demand though?
My question: Who actually demanded that John Farnham came out of retirement? Was it you? I am yet to find one person who actually demanded another John Farnham tour, especially after at least 3 farewell tours.
Do you have any experience with Trek or Giant bikes? I'm considering the Trek Navigator 2.0 and the Giant Suede W. I haven't seen either of them irl yet so I will probably change my mind as soon as I get to the bike store.
do you have any beauty products that you swear by?
i have tried almost all volumising shampoos & conditioners, but none have worked. i tried the burt's bees pomegranate & soy one and a month later my hair is HUGE. i also swear by body shop's tea tree oil blemish stick! or tea tree oil/aloe vera in general.
A few days ago I was browsing through the (many) tattoo communities, when I saw pictures of a girl who had tattoos of birds from one of the little golden books. She was tattooed at Chapel St, but I don't remember anything else. Does anyone know what comm this was posted in?
I have a number of conditions which might benefit from the use of medical marijuana - one of my friends suggested I try it and before I bring it up with my doctor I want to be able to tell her that it works.
That said, I take a lot of other medications and I was wondering if anyone knew if they'd react badly:
Gabapentin - to treat neuropathic pain Propranolol - to prevent migraines Citalopram - anti depressent Diclofenac - to treat joint inflammation/pain Fiorinal - for pain Tramacet - for pain
The last two I take "as needed" and the rest I take on a daily basis. I did a quick google search and found pages saying "you'll die" to pages saying "you won't get high" to pages saying "you're fine"
So what's the deal peeps... can I try taking a toke or will it land me in the ER?
Do you ever get annoyed when you ask a question that is particularly popular and you get lots of answers but hours later you're so over it, yet you are still getting comments from the conversations it created?
I'm a college student who recently came home for the summer and really need a summer job. One application I submitted, for a job I really want, is to a local bookstore. I went in and asked for an application, only to hear that the store had run out but the hiring manager told me to bring her a resume. The next day, I brought her my resume, and she told me she would be setting up interviews the following week. So I left my resume with her on a Wednesday and waited until the following Friday to call because I hadn't heard anything.
When I called, one of the employees answered and said that the hiring manager had been out of work sick for a few days and nothing new had happened with the hiring situation. He took down my name and phone number and said he would let her know I called.
Another week later and I haven't heard anything.
Should I assume the opportunity's gone or should I call her one more time? I'd really like the job if I can get it, and I would at least like an interview.
TQC, my bff's asshole boyfriend dumped her, so I'm making her a little care package. So far I have The Girls Next Door season 4, pizza, and beer. What else should I include? I was thinking one of those eyemask things to help with the puffiness and some aromatherapy crap for the shower, but idk :( she's really upset :(
What is a style/brand of shoe you consider tacky/ugly, but admit to owning? I think several styles of Ugg boots are HIDEOUS and hate when people wear them over their jeans, but I own a pair of the brown class short ones and they're amazing
keeping the AC on all the time, set at the same temperature of 78 degress at all times? or turning off the AC when no one is home and turning it back on when it's too hot to take, and then turning it off again.
I like to keep the AC running but my boyfriend does not because he think it will cost too much.
We live in a pretty small one bedroom apartment and it cools off relatively quickly. Only problem is once the AC is turned back off it gets warm rather quickly.
1. Have you ever worked overnights? If so, how did you manage that/when did you sleep?
2. Let's say you're a front desk agent at an upscale (but not ZOMG AMAZING) hotel. A guest calls down and says, "Is there a female who could come and help me put my hair in a ponytail? I only have one arm." You are a female and you are not that busy. Do you go to the one-armed woman's room and put her hair in a ponytail?
So, I'm moving into an apartment on June 30th. I have the number to the electric company, and I know I have to set up a new account but when do I do that? Should I call TECO before I'm supposed to move in, or after? If before, how soon before?
about how much gas would it take a car to drive 5 hours? ETA: the majority of this will be on an interstate. i don't know how many miles the drive is.
have you ever gotten exactly what you wanted after an eternity of waiting for it, but then after it happens, it sucks and you wish you didn't have to deal with it? what was it and why did you feel that way?
What shows (with at least three seasons or more) have you seen every episode of? House, Ugly Betty, That 70's Show, The O.C., Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saved By the Bell, & new Doctor Who
My boyfriend and I were looking at the CDC website comparing state info on the H1N1 flu (we're in the midst of disaster preparedness training for school), and noticed Wisconsin has a ridiculously high number compared to the rest of the country... we're talking ~3000 when a lot of other states are generally 50-150. There are some outliers in the 1000's, but not nearly 3000.
What the heck is going on with swine flu in Wisconsin? Are you from Wisconsin? Do you know anyone who is sick?
I went out to dinner tonight and 3/4 of us were over 21. We all ordered drinks. The girl asked for our IDs and the underage kid said that he forgot his. Our waitress said "Oh, it's okay! The rest of them can vouch for you!"
Not that this would happen but let's say the underage kid gets caught drinking. Who would get in trouble? I know you can't buy alcohol for a minor but is this whole *vouching* thing along those lines?
and/or What was your last underwhelming meal? What was your last ass kickin' one?
