My best friend is having a really hard time with being in school right now. She can't multi-task, so it takes her hours to read and do assignments. She's also really neurotic, and worries too much about everything. It's only the second day of school and she's already being annoyingly passive-aggressive.

What can I do, TQC? I've told her to relax and not think so much, but it's not working :(

ETA: She's calmed down now. Apparently she was just stressed from her babysitting job.

a. Hi, I'm starting college soon and I move in this Sunday and I'm scared as hell. Will you give me any advice about dorming for the first time? And about adjusting to college life?
I'm fairly independent, personality-wise, but I've never been away from my family before for a long time and I'm still relying on them. I won't be far from home, but I will still be totally overtaken by school and lonely, and I don't have any close friends who will be there, so idk how to deal with being so removed from everything. Advice?

b. Let's say you are starting college and have just gotten into a relationship with someone who is going to be living an hour and a half away. Neither of you will have a car and neither of you are totally sure what you want out of this, particularly your partner who is rather inexperienced. What would you do? Would you stay in a relationship, have an open relationship, or decide to be just friends, or what?

c. dk/dc about these: what's something you're looking forward to in the next week?

tqc, today is my birthday! I'm 23.

& if you don't want to say, what's your big obsession right now?
I'm in love with the L4D games all of a sudden. Can't get enough of them.

For someone who has had and enjoys sex and wants to have it often, but is not in a relationship, how long is too long to go without sex?
I know someone who's gone three years without actual sex, outside of a blowjob a year and a half ago.

WHEN ARE YOU GETTIN' LAID NEXT?
Fucking tomorrow. YES.

If you had to plan a wedding, what would your theme be?
I'm watching this episode of My Fair Wedding with this woman who wants to have a SWAMP THEMED WEDDING and oh no girl.

What tv shows do 7 year old girls like these days? OR what shows would you recommend for a 7 year old girl? She does enjoy shows like Mr Bean and Blackadder, but we're looking at more usual program suggestions. Where/when it airs isn't an issue, I'm sure I can find it. I just don't know what's good and/or popular!

 So, in doing some research, I've found that Japanese (and most Eastern Asian) people don't have middle names. I know a Vietnamese family, though, and they've given their children an English name and then put a traditional Vietnamese name as a middle name. Is this a common practice among Asian immigrants, specifically Japanese, in the US?

What are some endearments a Japanese mother might use when talking to her children?

So, my twins' 2nd birthday is in october. Will you please help me decided which character/themes to put on each of their cakes? I'm bad at small choices.

My daughter likes: Books, kittens, and Elmo.

My son likes: Tigger, Cars, and Basket ball.

Should I have elmo reading a book with a kitty for my daughter and my son's with Tigger in a car shooting a basket ball, or stick to a one theme thing?

1. What is your middle name? Do you love it? Why or why not?
Vincent. I think it's pretty badass, and others have told me so

2. It's raining buckets outside. Should I go out for lunch and brave the rain, and come back soaked? Or stay dry and go hungry?

3. Do you consider yourself nerdy? Why?
Yes. I love doing computery/gamey stuff. And I have forever, and it takes up a good chunk of my existence

4. Have you ever used Linux? Which distribution? Did you like it, or were you just confused?
Yes, Ubuntu and OpenSuUSE. I liked using them both generally, but I had to use OpenSUSE for a class where I had to make changes to the system then spend 30 minutes recompiling it all only to find that it didn't work. Lots of nights in the computer lab writing code in C until 5AM. Grr.

5. Will you post a picture of your favorite poster that's on your wall (or if you don't have posters, some other kind of wall-adornment)
I don't have any

Halp! I just accidentally took my multi-vitamin on an empty stomach. This is real bad because I can already feel the nausea coming on and I have to go to school. What can I do to stop or slow the nausea?

I already ate something as soon as I realized in the hopes that it'll help and I've got a water bottle. I'm just hoping the nausea doesn't start to really kick in on the train... :/

DK/DC: I'm on a diet but going to class means 120 degree heat, a train, and lots of walking. It's causing really bad cramps in my feet and legs. Is there a way I can give my legs more "fuel" without compromising my diet?

I called him last night to let him know I was staying over a friend's house. He asked me, "You're on birth control, right? That stops you from getting pregnant?" "Yes, Dad. I'm on NuvaRing, and that's what it does." WTF? To his knowledge, I'm barely dating, let alone sleeping with anyone. Was he just being worried/father-like? Or does he actually think that I'm a slut? And should I bring it up today when I talk to him, like, "Hey, Dad, who exactly do you think I'm sleeping with when I've only had two guys over the house two times each and it's obvious I'm not really interested in either of them that way?"

I have about 3 grocery sacks full of clothes I don't want/have grown out of due to my love of candy. Should I offer these to friends first or just give them to charity? It's mostly printed tshirts (like one printed with cherries all over it, one with flying pigs etc) that I think I'm too old for, or cute skirts that are now too short/small for me (about 3 of those layered short ruffly flowery skirts that were so popular a year or two ago) or random shirts/dresses I have no use for.
Will charities even want these t-shirts and out-of-season skirts? The majority are in great condition and I'm going to go through again and throw out anything slightly shifty looking/torn.

Now that we're down here she's all over my cat, even though she didn't help pay the pet deposit or buy litter boxes, toys, etc. Do I call her on her shit? Am I being too selfish?

~woo purses~

TQC, let's talk about purses.

Do you prefer shoulder bags, or one that has shorter straps that fit in the crook of your elbow, or do you like tiny clutches that you carry in your hands, or...?

If you use a purse with shoulder straps, what shoulder do you usually carry it on? Are you purse-shoulder ambidextrous? Because I HAVE to carry my purse on my left shoulder. I HAVE TO. I feel SO out of sorts when I put a purse on my right shoulder. UGH! DNW!!! I was out with a friend the other day, and I noticed that she casually switched her purse to the other shoulder a few different times, and I remember thinking, "Omg that is SO WEIRD. HOW CAN SHE DO THAT?" And then I realized that maybe I was the weird one for being so single-shouldered. TQC, WHICH ARE YOU?

Will you show me a picture of your purse? Here's mine. What do you normally carry in it? I carry all this junk in mine.

EDIT: Or if you don't have a picture of your purse, will you show me a picture of a purse that you really want?

If you are like, "Oh blah purses, ugh. That's what pockets are for!" Then will you please tell me a tacky joke? Like a real groaner. I need some more lame jokes to add to my repertoire.

What is the sexiest song to you?

Is the song content more important or the singing voice?

I just saw on a list of great sex songs that 'Closer' by Nine Inch Nails was number one or two. I understand why it's on there, but for me his voice isn't sexy enough to get me in the mood.

'Bad Things' by Jace Everett is such a sexy song to me, he has this awesomely sexy deep voice.

My friend and I are thinking a week in England, but we aren't 100% sure.

So, my wisdom tooth is kicking my ass pretty hardcore right now, and has for the last two days straight.

I've been taking some pain meds for it, but they all say things like "Don't take more than x ammount of pills in 24 hours" or "Don't take longer for ten days", because it could cause a whole slew of issues (damage to the liver, ulcers, etc etc).

I'm just wondering, since I have a couple more days til I could even begin to go get my tooth checked out (I have a feeling its just growing in and the pain will go away soon, as like with my other wisdom teeth) if I keep taking two pills every four hours (as directed) and it sometimes doesn't quite clear the '24 hour' mark, how possible is it that I'm going to suffer any/all of the warnings that are listed? Or are those warnings for more very long-term usage?

What should I eat when I feel sick?

I am too nauseous and just about everything goes right through me, plus my gut feels like it is on fire so I am afraid to eat. Even the slightest amounts set me off sometimes.  I can eat maybe a couple slices of bread, 1/3-1/2 of a can of soup(nothing acidic), or a few mouthfuls of cereal, and I drink water, green tea(decaf), and blue or green Gatorade and I still end up getting sick. I've already lost at least 10-15 lbs in less than 2 weeks.

None of the medicines (Pepto, Prevacid, etc...) help me and I have no insurance so I can't go to a Doctor. 

Can you suggest some things that my gut might be able to handle? I am getting tired of the foods I listed above.

What do fifth grade students like to read these days? Specifically, is anyone knowledgeable about good books out there for struggling fifth-grade readers? These students may be reading up to two grade levels below where they "should" be.

The classroom teachers whose students I am assisting use the Lexile framework to evaluate students' achievement levels. Unfortunately, Lexile seems to do a word-for-word analysis of the text. Our school's library is leveled, but I'm running into a problem with content. The words might be on the right level, but all the content I've found seems wildly inappropriate.

TQC, I've been going out and meeting people since my breakup, and I've so far come across two guys that seemed really nice when I met them but are subsequently becoming way too "HEY HEY LETS GO OUT. LETS GO OUT AND DO STUFF. DATE? DATEDATEDATE." and "I'M GONNA TEXT YOU LIKE FIFTY TIMES A DAY UNPROVOKED." And one of them, who I've met out and about with my friends once or twice because he seemed nice, is now like "HEY I GOT MY JEEP STUCK COME GIVE ME A RIDE HOME???" and I'm not into that. I hardly know the dude. He sends me picture texts of him and his dog.

TLDR: How do I tell men to back off probably permanently (like none of that, "I'll be ready to date in a month so wait around" shit) without coming off like a complete bitch?

This is totally hypothetical. (cough)

Let's say that your company is in the midst of Busy Season, you're a salaried employee and overtime at your company is compensated with days off in the future at the head of the company's discretion, not extra cash moneys. For several weeks at the start of Busy Season you didn't take any lunch breaks and you stayed on average between 1.5 - 2 hours past close-of-business just to get all your shit done. Now that things seem to be winding down a tiny bit, your two basic choices are to take a lunch break and leave an hour late, or not take a lunch break and leave "on time." Which do you do and why?

do all laptops dull in screen brightness compared to a standard office computer? i assume the higher i pay for a laptop, the better quality i will get, and this was on the cheaper side. i am so new to having a laptop that i don't know what to expect with such things.

1. A lady I work with has asked me if I will watch her kids for her after school. I want to do it. She said she'll pay me $30 a day, which seems like a bit much. I'm not sure? but I just pick them up at school at 245 and watch them until 6. I do live about 30 mins from her, but it just seems like she'll be paying me a lot. Should I tell her I don't need that much or just go with it?
She's a single mom, but her ex husband (who also happens to be my High School math teacher who got fired for having an affair with another teacher hence the divorce [Catholic highschool] haha, awkward) helps out, plus I think she gets help from the gov't but I'm not sure.
Does $30 a day seem reasonable?

2. Does the "I was drunk, you can't hold it againsed me" excuse work on you? A friend of mine recently REALLY offended me and now refuses to apologize because she was 'drunk and should not be held accountable.' It's a piss off to me that she's going on like nothing happened. Should I just let it go? She crossed some serious lines and knows it, so I'm having a hard time getting over it.

3. Do you like spicy cheetos? Canada does not have em =[, but when I go to the USA I stock up. bahaha.

I emailed my cousin who is a speech therapist asking a few questions about my nephew because I was starting to get concerned that he's not talking yet. I got a call from my aunt tonight (who is a pretty horrible/crazy person) that she was talking to my cousin about it and that she didn't know how to broach the subject of my nephew not talking yet.

I feel like a jackass.
Do you think it was right for my cousin to bring up my personal email?

I'm sick over this. :(
