The month before you have to move, how to you prepare? Do You just pack everything willy-nilly on the day of the move or do you slowly pack throughout the previous month?


I have to move on the 8th of May out of my current apartment, move all my stuff into a storage unit because my new apartment will not be ready for another week, then move into the new one. I've become super antsy because I just cleaned and organized the closet and next is all the crap under the bed.

Can someone give me some advice for dealing with anxiety? Not in a therapy-ish 'recognizing distorted thoughts' way, but in a day-to-day way, like little things I can do to keep myself from having anxiety attacks, I mean.

What is the weirdest thing that someone you were/are interested in/dating/married to has said that made your heart skip a beat?

I was talking to someone I'm interested in online, and we got on the topic of libertarians...he made some comment, and I compared it to neoconservatives, and he said I was talking dirty to him at that moment. Political science majors...we're weird creatures. We're going out for coffee after finals are done. :D

There were some videos on vimeo that were hilarious, about drawing and having people guess what you were drawing, and they tended to turn to penis jokes. I remember one was specifically about drawing mojo jojo. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

I turned 21 on Monday. Before that night, I had honestly never had a drink in my life. I had a lot of fun, though, and I want to go out more often... but I have no idea what drinks are out there, and I don't want to sound like an idiot ordering things. What are some [fruity, delicious] drinks that I can order?

TQC, I need help. I'm really behind in the semester (I have three 8-10 page research papers that are overdue) and my exam week starts Monday. The issue is that I've been super emotional, getting really irritated at my boyfriend for little things, getting depressed really easily, and crying at the drop of a hat. All I want to do is sleep, and I've been having a really tough time concentrating on my work, hence the back up of papers. One paper in particular is giving me a lot of trouble and I just got really upset over it a minute ago and I felt paralyzed, like I couldn't move or think, and I could barely breathe as I was trying to not burst into tears in the middle of the library. My boyfriend said it sounds like I had a panic attack, but I have no idea because I've never had one. I've already decided that tomorrow morning I'm going to set up an appointment with the counseling center on campus to talk to someone because it's gotten to the point where I can barely function.

TL;DR I'm having emotional problems and can barely concentrate on my work. What is wrong with me, TQC?

I've never been diagnosed with any mental disorder, and I'm 20 years old. This started full-force a month ago, but I had this issue on a much smaller scale last semester over a huge, very involved research paper.

DK/DC: Will you post funny macros/gifs/pictures to make me feel better?

EDIT: Thanks everyone for your suggestions/pick-me-ups/support. I feel better now, and I will certainly talk to a counselor as soon as they can get me in there. =)

Did you have music classes in elementary school? Do you remember any songs from them? Which ones?
I remember Waltzing Matilda, Wadaliatcha, The Piñata Song, and The Candy Man

What about art classes? Do you specifically remember any of your projects?
I remember doing a frottage project in 5th grade, and a clay bowl in kindergarten. I also remember learning how to draw some simple trees at one point.

Were you ever in band/chorus?
Yep, chorus in 5th, 6th, and 8th grade.

Have you ever had to come up with a witty tag line for a website or business card before? I'm finding it rather difficult.

My site's name is Kulta Artistry. 'Kulta' is Finnish for gold and also used as an endearment, kinda like 'darling'. I was thinking something like "A golden opportunity to invest in a darling design", but that sounds stupid. Why is this so freaking hard?
 ETA: I do web and graphic design and simple coding.

I'm a teacher. For the past 7 years that I've been teaching, I've taught summer school (and it's a really neat program for incoming Freshmen)!

However, with all of these budget cuts going on, we aren't sure that the program is going to exist this summer. I can't go all summer without working, I'll go insane!

The problem is, however, that school doesn't let out until June 18th. I don't mind working somewhere like Borders, or even as a cashier at Whole Foods, but I feel like nobody is going to hire me because I'm not able to commit to full time work until such a late date.

What do you think, TQC? Will anyone hire me? What are your job plans for this summer?

Are your parents a big influence on your decisions?  How much can you tell them?  Do you live at home or away?  How old are you?  

My friend and his sister were telling me how they couldn't tell their parents that they bought guitars because they'd freak out... he's 29 and lives away.. she's in her 20's too.  He then asked me "You don't tell your parents everything you do do you??"  I said that I could if I wanted to but didn't have to..and they wouldn't freak over my decisions because they're not like that..

Has anyone read Matt Fraction's Thor stuff? Opinions?
Bite me, bitch...

From a post on my friends page.

Executive Summary : The Western World has quietly become a civilization that undervalues men and overvalues women, where the state forcibly transfers resources from men to women creating various perverse incentives for otherwise good women to conduct great evil against men and children, and where male nature is vilified but female nature is celebrated. This is unfair to both genders, and is a recipe for a rapid civilizational decline and displacement, the costs of which will ultimately be borne by a subsequent generation of innocent women, rather than men, as soon as 2020.

The rest of the article is here.

Do you agree?

ETA: You lot don't agree? But but but.. they said, "What you are about to read is the equivalent of someone in 1997 describing the expected forces governing the War on Terror from 2001-2009 in profound detail."

Age Appropriate viewing

At what age do you feel it is alright for a child to see a pg13 or above movie with their parent? How about gory tv shows like CSI or Deadliest Warrior?

I took my daughter, age 6, to see the new Alice in 3D and Coraline and 9, and she loved it all. She and I also regularly sit and enjoy Deadliest Warrior on the Spike Network. Mayhap it depends on the child's ability to cope with what they are seeing?

A man is lead to believe that he is the biological father of his wife's child. When this is discovered to be untrue, the man and his wife separate. The man pays child support and continues to see the child on weekends. The man discovers that his ex-wife is now married to the child's biological father.

Should this man still have to pay child support to a biologically intact family? If not, should his visitation rights be revoked? In general, what are your thoughts on this situation?

Does anyone remember that viral (well, idk how popular it was) animated video that was going around in 2004, I think, that was set to the Muse's Time is Running Out?

If I recall correctly, the subject matter was about the Iraq war, 9/11, and the reasons behind it as well as who benefitted. I think it was about how it was making money for weapons manufacturers. I'm fairly certain it was anti-Bush.

It was a really dynamic video with lines crossing the screen and shit lol I don't know how to explain it. It may or may not have had a narrator with non-American accent at some points?

It's very difficult to search for because I don't think it was titled Time is Running Out. It was the first time I ever heard Muse.

How do I convince my fiance to learn to drive?

The only reason I ask is we've been together 4 years now and its coming down to me to play taxi more and more often.
Before meeting me he walked everywhere or used public transport, but now when the train service isn't running I end up giving him a ride if he can't get there by walking.

When I talk about it, he just gets annoyed but it really bugs me that he just expects me to be his taxi and doesn't consider the cost of this for me.

Have you ever "changed your mind" about something that you thought was unshakeable, or had something happen that you truly never thought would happen?

ie: been a devout Christian and became an atheist, or vice versa...left a line of work or hobby that you thought you'd never go back to, only to return years later...have a relationship end in a way that you never ever would have anticipated...maybe have a political or social opinion that you strongly believed, only to change it once you learned something new.

What happened? How did you feel afterward, knowing that something so major could do a 180? Did it change your perspective, attitude or approach to life?

My dining hall is serving lobster tails tonight and my friend wants to go. I usually don't eat lobster because the fact that they're boiled alive freaks me out.

How are lobsters killed if only their tail is going to be eaten? (I'm assuming they just ordered frozen tails) Are they still boiled alive or are they just killed and chopped up? Google is not helping.

[ETA:] Yes, my moral code is flawed and inconsistent. I don't really care. I'm just curious if lobster is still boiled alive if it's going to be frozen.

Have you ever completely misread someone's feelings for you? I just randomly thought about this girl I knew about nine years ago. I liked her a lot and thought she liked me back. After we'd talked for a few weeks, I told her I was happy that we liked each other so much, and said something (forget exactly how I phrased it) about how we should start going out.

I was met with a look of total confusion and was very quickly informed she had absolutely no interest in me romantically.

Anyway, has anyone every been in a situation like that? How did you handle it? I was more upset at myself for completely misreading her than anything else. As a side note, she stopped talking to me completely a few days after that. Guess it freaked her outl

supposedly i owe $600+ to a gym because they think i signed a two year contract when i signed a one. it went to a collection's agency and i got a letter from them in September. i got a couple more letters and a couple phone calls from a woman who works there. the last time i spoke with her, i explained the situation and that i was 100% sure i had a one year contract and didn't owe that money. she said she would contact the gym and get back to me when she heard from them.


she never called me and i haven't received anymore letters or phone calls. this was 5 or 6 months ago. do you think they're still after me or did they get it settled and just never got in touch with me?

i talked about this with my therapist today and he's of the opinion they aren't looking for my money anymore. i thought about calling them but i don't have the number and i don't know what i did with the letters.

Moving questions.

Yes, more.

My roommate sprung on me that I have 2 months to scrape up enough money to move out, since she decided she doesn't want to re-sign the lease. These are my problems.

1.) The state of the apartment is pretty poor, the living area that is. Her cat has scratched up carpet underneath all the doors, and urinated in multiple locations. I've given up trying to clean because I'm not home much day to day, and she's never home and doesn't seem phased by it. Whether or not the deposit covers the damages, I don't know, but what I want to ask is will the damage done hurt my rental history? Even if she pays for it and it's repaired, I'll be pretty angry if I get denied places because she was irresponsible.

2.) How early in advance should I call people about apartments? Obviously they want to rent as soon as possible, I'm not sure me calling and saying I can move July 1st is going to be enough. I also have to scrounge up the money for a security deposit, somehow, so if I don't have that in time I guess it won't matter.

Am I the only one who saw the potential for some serious psychological horror with Jake's mental transformation in James Cameron's Avatar?

I mean, seriously, what if the reason for his deep, mental change wasn't some 'enlightenment' but rather a result of the inbuilt instincts/chemistry of the body he was inhabiting? If that were the case, what the story really is, is a man slowly having his personal and cultural identity replaced with that of an alien; am I the only one freaked out by that?

Help me make life-altering decisions, TQC!

I want a German Sheppard puppy. Starting in a couple months, I will be a full-time student, living in an apartment. After I graduate, I will (most probably) end up with a full-time job and a house of some sort.

So I guess my question is this: which is crueler? Getting a puppy when I'll have more time for him but be without a yard or getting a puppy with a yard but much less time?

ETA: Thanks for the replies, folks. Probably going to wait until after school when I'm hired and have settled some. There were puppies in Petsmart today and I've always wanted a GSD, so I think I just got the fever.

Sooo I am in a stage makeup class right now and Wednesday is fantasy day. I'm supposed to plot a makeup design and come in and apply it on myself. The only stipulation is that I add at least one 3D texture/element to the design-- so like, horns or warts or peeling flesh or latex or something other than just color.
WHAT SHOULD I BE?
I can do basically anything non-human: animals, aliens, fairies, whatever. This is too broad a category for my tiny little mind to narrow down. If it helps, I have a round face and limited access to makeup stuff, so fancy prosthetics are out of the question.

What would your impression be if some random person of the opposite sex sat with you and engaged you in conversation? Are you flattered?

Do you like to be approached by (non-creepy) strangers?

Can you whistle?
EDIT: Are you a dude or a lady?

I have a theory that, generally, men have some kind of inborn whistling advantage over women, even though I can't figure out how that could possibly be true. Most of the dudes I know can whistle, and not many of the girls I've asked so far can. I'm a chick and I can do a whispy, high-pitched tweeting thing, but it's really not the same.

Art historians of TQC, do you know of any nineteenth century painters who depicted eighteenth century fashions and life from a nineteenth century perspective? I know there was a female artist who depicted scenes from the Regency (quite a few of her paintings are used on book covers now), but I can't remember the name of the male artist who created scenes from the eighteenth century. There was a handy website, but it's gone and the Wayback Machine is down. :/

Don't know or care, what are you up to right now (aside from TQC)?

Why is it okay for our mutual (male) friend to kick my (male) best friend's ass mercilessly in Soul Calibur IV while he laughs hysterically, but when I win gracefully and quietly I'm being a "cheap-ass bitch" and he rage-quits? Serious and non-serious answers welcomed.

Alternatively, what video games do you enjoy OR why am I spending Thirsty Thursday playing Soul Calibur IV with idiots?

Suppose you're single, and someone who isn't creepy but you aren't attracted to asks you out. You're a bit of a social recluse and haven't been on a date for almost a year. Would you accept the date even if you're not into this person and won't be?
