This is going to sound weird, but...

Is there a way to tell if I'm getting enough air through my nose?

Because I often feel like I'm not, but I don't know if I'm just imagining things or overreacting to something normal or what.

Do you ever get random intense bursts of energy where you feel like you're going to bust out of your skin?
I know I'm a littttllee crazy but sometimes I just want to scream and dance and wiggle around..but it only lasts for five minutes or so

Does your chest feel taut and lean, especially around your collar bones? Do you work out or are you just skinny?

What would you do with several hundred condoms?

(I got them from a friend, and I've been using them, but they're not my preferred kind--and I'd kind of like to try the Trojan Intense condoms. The ones that I have don't expire for almost two years.)

more college scheduling questions...

TQC, have any of you taken science classes over the summer?
I'm considering doing a Chem class and I'd be in lab from 8-11 and then in class from 1-3 two days a week. I'm trying to decide if I want to try to take anything else or if that alone will burn me out. If it matters, I'll be taking Trig that evening.

In your experience, if class instructors are listed as "TBD", is that pretty much always a bad thing? Do those classes usually get canceled? Or wind up with shitty teachers?


DK/DC: Do you volunteer with an organization regularly? If so, what organization? What do you do with them?
I volunteer with the USO. I cook, do care packages, greet, do luggage, and redeploy.

TQC, I need your opinion!

My friend and I are going to be renting an apartment together in a little while and she has two children. The kids are going to share a room, she'll have her own, and I will have my own. There will be two bathrooms, with one being private in the master bedroom.

I'll be splitting the rent and utilities 50/50. How can I ask for the master bedroom with the bathroom without sounding like a bitch?  I'm not going to be asking her to pay 2/3rds since she's technically getting two bedrooms.



Would you rather pay 1/3rd of the rent and share a bathroom and a wall with a two- and four-year-old or pay half and get your own bathroom and slightly bigger bedroom?

Have you ever lived with someone with kids? I love her little munchkins and I'll get to play dress-up and tea party and princesses again.

For those who are married or have been with a SO for a few years, particularly if you have children, do you have 'Date Night'? How often and what do you do?

We're nerds and love Doctor Who. Once a month a local movie theatre shows two episodes on the big screen for FREE and it's 2 miles from my parent's house so it's VERY convenient for babysitting. It's one of those theatres that serve food and beer so we have dinner too. Tomorrow we're going to see the 1st 2 episodes with the Matt Smith Doctor and I have intentionally not watched it so I can enjoy it on the big screen to the fullest extent.

Renting

Relationship advice

jraven and I love each other but he was born liking the penis and I was born with quite the opposite.

Which of us should make the drastic personal change for the sake of our relationship?

I enjoy a lot of guy-like things already (like not wearing heels, playing sports/video games, peeing standing up, having wet dreams, wearing pants and things like that), but... I think it would be a lot easier for him to just stop being gay versus me growing a penis. y/y?

If you haven't caught it yet, non-serious answers, please.

My vitamin is making me feel ill

I took a vitamin this morning (which I rarely remember to do) and I feel all weird and dizzy and sick to my stomach.  It didn't really help that I didn't have a chance to eat anything until I got to work.

You can have the big career, the fame, and the money, or you can fade back into virtual obscurity. Do you have sex with that fat, old, bald man or do you walk away?

backstory: someone stole my coat at a show the other night. i tried to catch them, but little ole me failed. waaah. i'm now searching for my coat online and am not having much luck...

this is the closest i can find. it's almost identical. but from what i can tell, it's a kid's size. there's also this one, but i can't tell if it's definitely a kid's or not. i've contacted the seller already and am waiting.

my question is: does anyone know what a child's size 16 would be equivalent to in a women's size?

i'm incredibly petite, and as far as i remember, i can fit into a kid's extra large tshirt. i'm just not sure how to go about this with coat sizes....

if you can't answer that, can you find my coat anywhere online? :(

My dad is currently in the hospital and there is a 99% chance he will be out in "a day or two."

She is really persistent about wanting to do something. She keeps offering to come stay with me so I won't be alone. There really isn't anything I need. She lives about 30 minutes away.

Are there any really simple tasks I could give her? Or should I just keep insisting I don't need anything?

I can has inspiration plz?

So in my 2D class I have to make a board game. Heres my idea, maybe you can help me fix it?

The idea is to get from start to finish first along the way gathering a certain amount of objects or something that will be represented by cards. These cards will be obtained by landing on blue squares allowing you to draw a card. Hopefully getting the ones you need to finish.
Landing on red squares will require you to draw from another pile which has consequences/traps. Some cards would require you to lose a turn or object card, the person in front to lose a turn/object card, or you could leave a token on a square and whoever next lands on that square would lose a turn/object card. Or other things you can help me think of.

But I need a unifying theme. Like WHY are you gathering these cards and whats at the finish? Are you rats scrambling for food to take to the warmest shelter? Or sperm traveling to the egg? (Someone else did that already so I cant do sperm and egg...) HELP ME TQC!

Or should I just try to turn a drinking game like Kings Cup into a board game?

I don't know who is playing first, and I don't really have much desire to hang around Nissan Pavilion Jiffy Lube Live waiting for 311 to get off the stage, but I don't want to show up later only to realize it was really The Offspring was the band playing first.
