HIGHER LEARNINGS

I'm going to grad school! I'm going to study (something hard and full of math). Problem: I didn't get my BS in anything related to (something hard and full of math). You think they'll let me apply for grad school (as an temporary undeclared) and satisfy my undergrad level course work before changing my status? Or are they going to make to do the undergrad dance first?




*Note:

*(I'm emailing my future adviser and I'm sure they're going to tell me what to do, but I'm stressing right now and want an idea of what to expect...)

*I heard through the grapevine that this department is desperate for fresh meat!

*I'm being vague because I dont want to jinx myself... it's a stupid superstition I have. It's a subject I majored in as an undergrad, butttt shit happens and I switched to (something easy). Biggest regret of my life thus far. I already have a ton of credits that can go toward (something hard and full of math)! Give me hope!

*ALSO!, my BS isn't a complete waste; it will come in handy later on.

Two questions.

1) I haven’t been on here in a few days. Was there ever an update on the post where someone’s dad was watching child porn in the kitchen?

2) My husband’s cat pisses on EVERYTHING. She’s a little bitch. She pisses on laundry, on bathroom rugs, on my son’s bed, and she tried to pee on a folded blanket on the couch. Before I throw her on the BBQ where she belongs, what can you tell me that might save her life? I know I’ll get questions like “Is she angry?”, so yes, she’s angry in general. She scratches, she bites, she’s obnoxious. She’s also fixed (Is it spayed or neutered for females? I always forget). I have never in my life hated a cat... total cat person... but I detest this one, and if I can’t figure out how to at least make her stop pissing on everything (hoping she’ll grow out of biting and scratching - she’s under a year old) I’m going to give her away or send her on an all expense paid trip to Shelterland.

ETA: I'm nearly positive it's a behavioral issue and not a medical issue like a UTI. Also, she's at odds with my 5 year old... they hate each other... which is probably why she pisses on his bed and not my 10 year old's.

I've been having so many problems with this computer for a long time now, most recently not being able to get the sound card to work.

As of right now, I am watching a Youtube video. With sound. IDEK what I did to fix the problem, so I'm assuming it was just...magic.

You are hanging out with a friendly acquaintance. You leave the room briefly for whatever reason. You hear your phone ring and come back to find that the person reached into your bag and answered your phone and is talking to the person who called. They don't know one another.

Are you upset by this, or is this perfectly fine with you? Does your answer depend on who was calling?

what would YOU do?

Let's say you leave home for work at 9:30PM to work your normal graveyard shift. Typically you come home around 3:00AM for a lunch break but recently you haven't because you're saving gas. You return home at 6:30AM to find a BAG OF TRASH SITTING NEXT TO YOUR FRONT DOOR.

Way new territory.

Throwing around wedding plans currently.

Is there a such thing as an "open" tattoo artist? Like someone who will just hang out and do smaller tatts for anyone who wants one (most of the guests would be into this)? Is that a terrible idea, or is it super awesome?

What do you like at weddings? Like, things that made them not boring? (hookers and blow and an open bar are already on the list, of course).

The ceremony will be under 20 minutes, tops, and there are alot of traditional Hawaiian stuff. Think people will be able to bear it?

ETA: Apparently, my lack of knowledge with tattoos shows here. Never mind, then.

Have you ever taken shoes to a repair shop?

Is shoe repair a dying art?

WHY ARE THERE NO SHOE REPAIRS NEAR ME? (well, there is one, but it has awful reviews so that's out)

I have a super cute pair of heels and I broke the strap off of one. I can't replace the shoes because I bought them out of state and don't remember the name of the store :(

Halp tqc!

Over the years, I've been repeatedly told I don't have to file taxes if I made under $5000. Is this true? I made $2400 in 2008 and I suddenly have a collection agency after me for failure to file. :/

ETA: If I call up this collection agency and say, "yo, how much do I owe?" do I still have to file?

Taxes confuse and scare me, sorry guys.

ETA2: Thanks for your help guys. I filed anyway just in case (Forty-fuckin-dollars :/) and don't owe anything, so I'm pretty sure this is a scam. I just hope they don't take me to court anyway.

What are two good things about you that are appealing to suitors and one bad thing about you that drives suitors away?
Then we'll tell you which outweighs which.

For example: I have a good sense of humor and am nurturing without being clingy. But, I'm lazy when it comes to my appearance and only get "dolled up" if I have a really good reason to.

I'm taking my friend to a clinic for std screening and he's freaking out because the website says some of the tests are "culture samples." He swears up and down that this means they're going to swab his thing with that cotton swab.

Do they even still do that? Or can they just request for a urine sample?

Disappointment

TCQ, have you ever met a "celebrity" of any sort in real life and were completely disappointed? I'm using "celebrity" broadly here to mean everything from a moderately internet-famous person to A list actors.

Were they complete douchebags? Smelled weird? Did it affect your feelings about their work and decisions to buy/read/watch/etc. it in the future?

If this hasn't happened to you, who do you think would be a total asshole in real life?

I got a job, TQC!!! I'll be delivering papers two nights a week in the nearby area, which works perfectly with my schedule! The thing I'm nervous about though, is that it would require that I do/pay all my taxes myself. I've never done that--have you?

My bath and hand towels were used to clean up beer-flavored vomit thanks to my little brother. This was Saturday night; it's now Monday morning and they're sitting outside the laundry room, rancid. Is it understandable that I'm really fucking pissed about this? Consider that he had to move two stacks of his towels to get to mine, and they're still sitting perfectly clean in the closet.

What is "being a woman" to you?
What is "being a man" ?

I really just don't get it. I see men and women as people who choose activities because they are gender stereotyped and they should, and other people are just people who do things that they like because they like them, gender stereotype or not. Thus you could still be a 'person' rather than a 'woman' if you have a vagina and your favourite activities are cooking and knitting and shopping, so long as you like those activities because you like them and not because 'that's what women should do'.

Tricks of the trade...

So I got an iPod for Christmas and I am totally new to that whole scene...I admit I feel quite intimidated by it all, like a whole new language I have to learn or something. But I can not bring myself to buy another CD and my car is ready to go for my iPod to be hooked up, so I need to take the plunge. I am also back into a financial place where I can spend a few bucks a month on new music, so I'm at Where Do I Start?

What are the secrets? (Are there any?) 

Do I basically go to iTunes and buy an entire album and see if I like it? 

Can I sample the music before I buy - like the whole song, not just a clip?

99 cents a song sounds cheap but actually not really, so I'm not looking forward to that...I do remember the days when certain artists would put out an album with 18 tracks for $13 but at the iTunes cost, that would cost me $18 for the whole album, etc...

Anyways, help?

Friend Drama

I had plans Saturday evening minus my 2 children, and had a friend scheduled to watch them at her place. Another friend, Heather, offered Friday to watch the children for me at my house, since she would be next door watching my parents house. She calls me at 4:30 Saturday afternoon, saying that she is not going to be watching my children because "my family is going to the beach this weekend and family comes first." We are not talking about an acquaintance, we are talking about someone that is more a best friend. I was pissed, but I got over it because my other friend was still able to watch them. Anyway, it got around to Heather through my parents that what she did was wrong, and she basically just sat here and told me HER feelings were hurt because I should understand that her family comes first. I told her I was over it, but you don't commit to doing something and then not do it, and that SHE would be pissed if I did that to her. She did not deny it.

So tqc, am I right to have been pissed?

I've found a good apartment I like, but I really hate the counter tops. Any place I look at in my price range are going to have a really cheap counter top, but this one is in this really abrasive shade of gray that just magnifies how ugly it is.

What are your thoughts on this quote?
It was a response to someone being asked if they thought God was listening.

I don't think of God as a he or a listener or a she. I just think it's a poem. It's some...it's a feeling. It's a sense of God. I just love the word. I love using it. It sings, you know? It's sweet. It's a sweet word. I'm at ease with it. My ancestors used it. Some wonderful musicians and composers and poets used it. They must have been talking about something. I feel entitled to this word. I inherited it, you know. It gives me a bit of peace to use it but I don't go round asking for things from God, except 'God help me'.

I'm quitting my job on Friday. I have another, temporary job I am working right now, and am going to go job hunting tomorrow for something permanent. I am quitting this job because I keep getting fucked over and it is killing me.

Horror Questions

I'm no aficionado so I can't be 100% sure but I noticed something the other day. It seems like distortions of the human body and especially the face make for a significant amount of horror material. Not like gory stuff but unnatural positioning and movement and such (like the girl in the closet from the Ring, Leatherface, etc).

Does this type of horror scare you?

Dear TQC:

I am very bad at quitting things. I have a side gig being a language tutor. One of my students is pretty young and not very interested in learning, so while I normally enjoy doing this, I find his lessons a chore. Also, his lessons aren't very consistent at all. His parents frequently cancels his lessons with little notice ahead of time due to illness/vacation, and I don't really get much paid much from this gig either. I'm contemplating about quitting. But I am not sure how to bring it up.

On the other hand, I could just stick it out, since it's only two hours a week and is nice pocket money.

Should I quit or stay? If I should quit, what should I say?

Lost Cat

My 3 year old indoor cat slipped out the door last night and hasn't returned. We ocassionally let him play in the back yard (which back up to woods), and he seems to like it outside. The problem is I havent see him since 10 p last night and it is now 6:45 the following night.

What would you do?

We've made a lost report with the Shelter, already put up signs in our neighborhood and have asked neigbors if they have seen him. We put out soft cat food and his litter box in hopes that he'll want to go to his smells.

Caregiving question

Hi, TQC. This is definitely a TL;DR question, but here's the gist: 

My grandma has moderate Alzheimers. She just started wandering last week, but she knew where she was going, so it wasn't really "wandering" so to speak. But I've come home during a break in college and now my dad doesn't feel comfortable leaving her alone, so one of us has to be home at all times. We can't afford to have someone come and sit with her often. My dad's in a relationship, so I cancelled plans with my boyfriend to stay home tonight to let him stay over his SO's place, which he's never done before. The boyfriend's upset with me (as I expected) but there's really nothing I can do about it; if I went out, my dad would have stayed home and been resentful that I'd gone out. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of situation? How did you balance caregiving and having a life?

learning to ride a bike as an adult

I'm 25, never learned to ride a bike without training wheels, and it's really time to learn. I got a 15-speed mountain bike from a friend so now I am ready to learn. So...

1. Did anyone else not learn to ride a bike until they were older? How did it go for you?

2. Any tips on learning to ride? My plan at first is to lower the seat (if I can lower it any more) so my feet touch the ground and try to coast to learn balance.

3. I don't understand how gears work exactly. What gear is usual for normal street riding? When would I use higher or lower gears?

(no subject)

you are the main character in a book.  what is your fatal flaw, ie, the source of your power but also your downfall?  something that you like about yourself but wish you could curb, or something that you hate about yourself but has its uses.

for example, i don't accept weakness in others, so i don't accept it in myself, but also it makes it a bitch to keep friends.

dk/dc: you are the main character in a video game.  you died.  where is your last save point, ie, if you could go back and have a do over from a certain moment/time/day in your life, when would you pick?

for example, i think i would pick my first week of university, given that i'm 3 weeks into my final term </3

still dk/dc: what is the funniest thing that has happened to you/you've seen/heard recently?  not "you had to be there" funny, but genuinely, still wet your pants when you think about it now funny.  the thing that happened and instantly you thought, omg i'm going to enjoy telling this story.

for example, we were ordering pizza the other night, and when they asked for a name, my friend interrupted and asked how long would it be (as in how long till it was ready) and then they hung up, and when we went to collect it turned out they had his order under the name allan willoughby ("how long will it be?").  (sorry, maybe you did have to be there.)

My friend also uses gmail but when I get his emails, the body of text is the whole size of the window or whatever.

A shitty image of what I am talking about under the cut. The blue is each of our body of text. It's starting to annoy me because it makes my tl;dr emails annoying to read.

EDIT: Writing in Rich Text and not Plain Text seems to fix it. IDGI, but as long as I can change it. Sheesh.

obsessive compulsive disorder?

hay guys.

does anybody here have OCD, or OCD-like habits? do you know anyone who has been diagnosed with it? anyone who went to therapy for it and came out better?

i've got an issue with "evening out," where if, for instance, my arm brushes up against the table, i have to turn and brush my other arm against the table the same exact way, even then, if i mess up i have to do it again. sometimes there is like a goal/consequence thing going on, where i say to myself, if i can do a (really menial) task a certain way, something good will happen
 (i.e. an aspiration of mine coming true), or i'll prevent something bad from happening (i.e. something bad happening to a loved one). and even numbers-- i can't eat three or five vitamins, only two or four. 

lol i'm weird. tell me your stories tqc~!

Would you rather be too full or not full enough?
When was the last time you felt ridiculously full? What made you that way?

[edit] On an unrelated note, do you find that people become more or less conservative with age? Why?

What would be a good thing to add to banana flax muffins? The recipe suggests raisins but I hate raisins. No nuts either! I want to keep these at least somewhat healthy so I'm thinking more along the lines of fruits or berries rather than chocolate chips.

girls, do you ever feel ashamed for wanting a boyfriend?


i've always felt ashamed for wanting to be with someone, especially when there was no one person i specifically wanted. i know i don't need a boyfriend and that makes me feel weak for wanting one. i've always ended up being made to feel like you shouldn't want someone until you meet them, and even then you shouldn't desire them all that much. do any of you guys go through that?

Eyebrow piercing poll

I was surprised as of late to hear that it seems a lot (most?) people don't like eyebrow piercings, so I'm here to see how it levels out. Do you think eyebrow piercings are masculine? They never seemed that way to me, but apparently a lot of people think they appear that way.

What do you think of eyebrow piercings?

If it fits the person, then I approve.

When you're looking for a specific .gif where do you go?
Every once in a while I want to post one but I don't save them on my computer and I never know where to find it (Right now I'm looking for that one from Little Miss Sunshine where Abigail Breslin is on the phone and screaming or something like that)

Do you have a swaptree account?

My daughters great-grandmother died.
We met her maybe twice?

My daughter is barely acknowledged by that side of the family. Like...my exes dad sees her maybe once a year...and we live 10 minutes apart. My ex hasn't seen her in almost 3 months. My daughter is 2.

We didn't know the woman all that well, but would it be inappropriate to send a card to my ex and his dad from my daughter? Obviously it would be something I picked out, paid for and signed...but i'm not quite sure what the etiquette on this is.

I don't really care for my ex or his dad, but I feel like since it's part of my daughters family I should at least acknowledge it? Or is this a bad idea? I only found out because I am friends with my ex-SIL and she mentioned it in a FB status message.

Weird question. Does anyone know if when you're signed into to MSN Messenger on your phone, does it show you as "away" if you don't mess with your phone for a while, or does it just keep you as "available"?

What's your favorite website of the moment? Where do you go online when you're super bored?

I am moving out of my apartment at the end of this month, and today I put down a deposit on my new super awesome apartment.

The walls are currently all white, but before I move in they can paint an accent wall in the bedroom and in the living room. Which colors should I pick?
