I'm trying to make a list of things I need at the store tomorrow, for this upcoming week and beyond.
I start school Monday. I have class at 9:30 am, and MUST eat breakfast before I leave or I will feel horrible. I've gotten as far as whole grain waffles, yogurt, and fruit. I don't like eggs.
Also, lunch. On Wednesdays, I'll be on campus/in town at lunch time. I need something I can bring with me and keep in the car until about 12:45 pm. It needs to be able to withstand high temperatures, because I live in Texas. The only thing I can think of on that front are those tuna lunch-to-go things.
So tqc, help me figure out what to buy? Preferably healthy things, please.
Do you have a hard or easy time adjusting you sleep schedule? For example, if you work evenings normally, but one time you're scheduled to work first shift, are you able to simply go to bed early?
I normally work 3-10pm or 2-10pm, but for some reason, I've been scheduled 5am-1pm on Monday. Right now, my sleep rhythm has been at a point where I fall asleep around 4:30/5am, not go to work. :( How do I manage this without wanting to kill myself? Or is that not an option?
ETA: I'm not allowed to have any food or drinks during my shift, technically. I do it on my normal shifts cause I'm the only one there, but if I'm really working Monday morning, my boss will be there and she'll be all RAH NO GET RID OF IT NAO. So no coffee to keep me awake. :(((

The leaders of al Qaida and the Afghani Taliban meet to discuss plans without realizing there's a gas leak in the room. They all die, and without their input, the Afghanistan War loses all momentum and the US wins
You can go back in time somewhere in the past year and make a change, big or small. You're then returned to the present, but whatever repercussions from that change remain
I am having boy issues. There was this guy I met about two weeks ago and we spent the last two weeks flirting with each other. After the first week, he finally kissed me and it ended up with us almost having sex. I think I freaked him out a bit because he is a virgin and two days later we had a talk about it being weird. Then, three days after our talk, he tells me that he would just rather ~be friends~ and I am not sure if this has anything to do with us almost doing the deed (but it probably does). He kept kissing me and flirting with me between our talk and the time he called it off though. The problem is, I still like him a lot- though I never expected him to ask me out. I'm so bad at handling these kinds of situations. A lot of my friends have told me not to talk to him at all and give him the silent treatment and hopefully he will begin talking to me again. I never like playing hard to get though so this seems weird to me. What should I do?
Say you know someone online who's attractive and has a certain something something that you find appealing. You talk with them, listen to their babbling and gain their trust to see what happens next. Only, it turns out, this person is not only nuts, but is also extremely bitter about life and a highly negative person. They're a bummer to talk to, if you're honest about it. When they almost have an emotional cussfest breakdown because a certain MySpace vampire game wouldn't load on their new computer, you just watched on, speechless. However, they're still kind of hot and very lonely and you still think that there's a good chance to hook up with them.
What would it take for your mind to overcome your hormones so you can just walk away for your own good?
I have a couple keepsake boxes that have my name/initials engraved into them. Kind of like this one: ( Collapse ) I don't want them anymore. Is there any way to get the engraving out so I can sell them?
If an extremely disabled man came to your place of business (ie, a lounge/nightclub)...and could not read the menu, could not articulate what he wanted and then needed assistance eating and drinking...how would you handle the situation?
A co-worker of mine dealt with the man, who had no caretaker with him...we are not even sure how he got to the bar in the first place. She was patient, helped him eat and drink (while maintaining her section and taking care of other customers;) however, she felt a little used after he left, especially since he had no way to pay for his drinks and meal.
I was recently re-watching a music video by Epik High (Korean Rap group) called "Map the Soul" and it got me inspired. It features a talking head with a landscape all over it. I remember reading an article about Epik High mentioning the artist who inspired them... but I can't for the life of me remember who the person is or find this article/interview.
1a. How many of you work in some sort of customer service? 1b. What do you do?
2a. Are you allowed to accept tips at your job? 2b. Do you do anything extra to get better tips (stuff the tip jar, be super nice, etc)?
3. Do you have any funny customer stories you'd like to share with the class?
I'm a barista and we have a tip cup that sits on our window ledge. I've discovered that if I put 4 dollars in the cup when I first get to work, I receive more tips throughout the day. I've also noticed the lower the neckline the higher the tips, but we get a lot of homeless people who come by and hit on us, so I tend not to do it, although my roommate does.
The other day I saw a guy walking like a zombie, eyes closed, and in his pjs. He literally looked dead, and had to pause every few feet and just stand there, head hanging down. It looked like he fell asleep mid-step. The manager of Albertsons said he's come in before with a bong!
Is there any advice you'd give someone who was completely new to the gym? I had someone demonstrate most of the equipment to me this morning, so I'm pretty sure I know how not to hurt myself, but apart from that I've got no idea what's going on.
What music do you like to listen to when you're working out? And what do you do with your mp3 player if your workout clothes have no pockets?
Will you please post a photo of your book case/shelves/piles? I love studying photos full of books to see what people read (though they're usually just in the background). I think it's very revealing of a persons character.
Is it possible to text something to someone without thinking? You know, something out of habit but to the wrong person or something? It doesn't seem like it would be to me, because you're..texting. Usually you're thinking about it/reading what you're texting so you're conscious of what you're sending, right? Or at least I do.
What was the last thing you said/did out of habit that didn't...fit? (Like an "I love you" to a coworker or something)
As of next week I'll be trying to balance day classes into my rem cycle! (I work 72hrs straight graveyard). I need something that will help me stay awake during lecture and endure rush hour so I actually make it home to my bed! Also no matter how much I add to coffee I still can't stand it. Anyone know of any stay alert quick cures that won't kill me from the sugar overload, make me so jittery I end up hitting a tree, or cause me to crash even worse than if I hadn't taken anything?
My husband can't remember the name of a song but 'basically' the chorus says something like, "your mama can't catch me, your brother wants to fight me, and your daddy wants to kill me" type of song...any ideas??
Edit: It was rock music sung by a band of only men singing.
Do you think it would be too extreme of a measure to see a dermatologist because my hair is really, really greasy?
It's been like this for over a year and every time I wash it it dries the same texture as it would if I put tons of gel in it. I have tried pretty much everything, from vinegar and baking soda to clarifying shampoo to washing it more/less often to using only conditioner to using only shampoo to using only water, etc. and nothing has worked.
I have to read 200 pages by Thursday for my chem class and I CANNOT concentrate because my nose is so stuffy and uncomfortable from allergies. I took Claritin but I've read it takes a few days before it starts working, and all the pharmacies on campus are stupid and close early on Sundays so I can't go look for an alternative. D:
Does anyone know of any quick fixes for nasal allergies, or anything that can be made at home? Like, QUICK quick, I need to be able to concentrate SOON and then be able to sleep all night so I can get up for class, quick?
[EDIT:] Thank you for all the ideas! I'll try the shower and the spicy food tonight :)
Do those small socks, like even smaller than ankle socks, have a special name? You know the ones you can wear with shoes that have to be sock less and you can't see that you're wearing a little sock in there?
It's a Saturday night and you're bored. You're invited to two parties: The Communist party and the Nazi party. Which party do you choose and why? What will you bring to the party? Who will you bring to the party?
i'm having mac and cheese for lunch tomorrow but it only fills 1/3 of the container i use for lunch. what should i put in the other 2/3? i'm considering using part of a cucumber and maybe a hardboiled egg, but there's a lot of room.
My roommate and i just tried to order Jimmy Johns and they WILL NOT deliver to us. Normally i would just let that go except this place is seriously about a 1/2 mile away and they deliver to us ALL the time. I tried telling them that they brought us food on tuesday but they won't budge. Are they just being lazy since they close soon?
What can i do to convince them that they should just suck it up and bring us the food?
If i can't convince them should we have cereal or PB&J?
did Elvis write any of his songs? do you think he deserves the title of King of Rock 'n' Roll? if he was so addicted to pills, why did he get so fat? why have i been thinking about Elvis so much this last hour?
My orthopedic surgeon took me out of my cast and put me into a soft cast/orthopedic boot (removeable!) because after seven weeks my bones have only begun to grow on the edges of each and are still cracked in the middle. He told me I could bear a little weight when doing transfers out of my wheelchair but I really don't quite grasp what he meant. I don't want to overdo it because I am still not allowed to stand or dare attempt walking.. What would you take "you may bear a little weight" to mean if your doctor told you that given this situation?
