Also, I'm thinking of volunteering in my area but haven't decided where yet.
Have any of you volunteered or wanted to volunteer for a good cause?
Can you explain what it was for and the things that you had to do?
What are some of the saddest book(s) you've read?
What are some good Sudoku-like games to play to pass the time? Sudoku just can't hold on to my attention anymore, apparently.
Do you like Sudoku? Find-a-words? Crosswords? Word/number puzzles in general?
Tomorrow I'm going to disability services at my university to find out if they can help me at all. I'm bipolar and currently not on medication because at the time my doctor felt I didn't need it anymore but I'm pretty sure I need to be on it again, just possibly a different combo because teh last one didn't work for me at all. I've missed like, 15 of my classes at university already this semester because I can't bear to get out of bed half the time. For those of you who have experience with this -
What are some questions/things I should bring up tomorrow besides "O hai, I'm bipolar". Also, how do I prove this? Do I need a note or will I get evaluated by a doctor from the university? And is there any chance I could get lucky and have them help me out with my missing classes this semester or am I fucked there?
So, I'm going to be moving in with some friends soon. There's going to be four of us in total, one couple and two singles. We're only in the very early stages of planning, so nothing's quite been decided yet.
From some things they've said, the couple presume they'll be paying less rent because they'll be sharing a bed room. I don't have a problem with this, but I would have a problem if they were only willing to pay half as much each as myself and the other single girl. There's a likelyhood (based on a couple of places we've vaguely looked at) that their room will be quite a bit larger then either of ours, and we'll all be sharing the common areas/bathrooms equally, so I'd think that they'd need to be paying a bit more then one third between them, though I get that they might now want to pay the same as the rest of us if they're sharing a room.
What would y'all recommend?
Do you have more than one livejournal account?
how do you feel about pickles?
what other foods come to mind that are either "love 'em or hate 'em"
personally, i love olives the most, and like mushrooms except on pizza, and despise pickles. it seems that opinions of these three foods are pretty polarized.
If you could pick one food to magically cease to contain calories (but not taste any different at all), which would you choose?
I'm having a hard time deciding between cookies & chocolate.
TQC, I am feeling fed up. Can we please have a PYU post?
PYU so everyone else can tell you something they remember about you or something they like about you, etc?
How often are you horny?
How much of an effect does your sex life have on your day to day emotions?
I'm beginning to wonder if I have a libido problem.
generally speaking, are you a risk taker, or do you like to play it safe?
There's this dude i've been seeing for a couple of months. Sometimes I think I may be falling in love with him, but i hold back. Tonight we had sex for the first time. It wasn't bad, it wasn't amazing, it was nice, we had to be really quiet because his parents were in the house. We're not going out, he asked me a while back, but i said i'd rather wait and get to know him better before we started something. He's really laid back, which i love. A few nights ago when we were being really close he was about to say something, and i was like, what? and he says "nothing, i don't wanna ruin it". And then he told me he finds it really hard to talk. When i left he texted me saying he might tell me, and then still didn't tell me. And tonight he still didn't say it haha, when i asked he said he forgot but he'll tell me if he remembers. what the hell? I really wonder what it was...I wonder if he's still interested in seeing me after we had sex. I guess if he doesn't anymore i won't really care, i'll move on, i just really wanted to sleep with him. i'm so confused. He's such a badass... what do i think?
TQC: Where do you buy your purses?
I'm on the hunt for a new one but I can't find anything I like a lot. I want new places to look.

(i am FINALLY moving out of my parents house and am thinking of throwing them out)
My cat is missing! We kept him in the house until recently (coz he was peeing everywhere, beds etc), and so he's living in the outside compound. I woke up this morning and couldn't find him, plus I went all over the neighborhood with no luck. What should I do?? Will he come back?
P/s: He disappeared one afternoon and I went totally crazy but he came back. But I last saw him yesterday evening.
I'm about to go to the drugstore to get stuff to fight off a cold. Besides saline spray, what should I pick up?

Would you say I (bipolar disorder, eating disorder if that matters, left school and 3 jobs in 2 years and has been in a hospital for mental illness twice in one year, returned to school and am already unable to manage the stress) would be eligible for possibly claiming benefits? I've been interested in the past but my parents told me I'm not really disabled and just not trying hard enough. Right now I'm doing a lot of thinking about whether or not I'm able to stay in school and what to do if I'm not.
TL;DR/DK/DC - Have you seen the movie "This Film Is Not Yet Rated"?
I applied for a job on Friday, they seemed interested in me and they said that they would contact me on Monday. Normally I call them back as its sometimes gotten me the job and/or an interview.
Its 12.10 pm and they havent called yet, Should I call them? If not how long should I wait?
Yes I am nervous and desparate as I really want/need this job
Would you ever get a cat declawed (assuming you like cats)? Under what circumstances?
Question brought to you by a highschool "friend" of mine who just got a kitten and already decided to declaw it to "prevent damage to the apartment" - though when asked what kind of damage a cat could inflict on an entire APARTMENT, she only says "oh you know... clawing stuff". Uh, it's called a scratching post. And her friend piped in and said "oh please I have owned 8 cats in my adult life and none of them have ever suffered from being declawed".
...frigging hate people.

You guys, this morning I won my third contest on the radio in a span of ~5 months (in Oct I won tickets to see Metric [one of my favorite bands evar], in Dec it was tickets to a show with a bunch of smaller bands, and this morning I won tickets to an Atlanta Hawks game [I don't do sports, but WHATEVER I WON!]). I should buy a lottery ticket on my way home from work later, y/y? What kind should I get? I live in GA.
Will you tell me about good luck you've had lately/ever? Anything at all!
TQC, what do you think the chances are that my power will come back on today?
Until then, what can I do to kill time?
i'm eating some "overnight oatmeal" that i cooked in 5 minutes. i didn't know i had bought the overnight kind, and i still want to eat oatmeal.
am i going to get sick? the oats aren't crunchy, just chewy...
Today, I almost forgot how to spell beautiful. I wrote it down with no a--scratched it out, and spelled it the wrong way again. WTF?
Do you ever forget how to spell simple, common words? Does spelling come more naturally to you typing or writing?
Will you post the last picture you've taken?
Alternatively, will you take a picture right now (of yourself or otherwise) and post it?

What is/are the guy/s you see up for?
Also idk if this is really silly question or not but can you just see your GP about going on birth control, or do you have to go to a gyno? I've never been to the gyno before. Gyno horror story time?
My best friend is turning 21 in a few weeks. I have an obligation to do something huge for her. We all wanted to make a trip to Vegas, but considering we're all relatively poor college students, its just not gonna happen right now.
What else could we do that would be AWESOME and very memorable for her 21st?
drinking and lots of shenanigans must be involved. lol
I suggested going to the Hard Rock Casino here in Tampa, Fl but shes been and isn't interested in doing something shes done before.
We're in Tampa, Florida so anything around Florida would be doable. We wanna avoid snobby Miami though.
LOL! I broke my vibrator today while using it. Can you recommend somewhere online to buy cheap sex toys? Have you ever broke a sex toy while in use?

I'm trying to remember what show had an episode about a girl who moved into an apartment building, and started visiting an old lady that lived in a room...something like 213? But the old lady was a ghost, and one day the girl didn't show, so the old lady had a huge fit. Was it Are You Afraid of the Dark? Does anyone know?
Do you have any weird or random associations of things that don't really seem to go together?
For example, I feel like rainy days call for Sprite.
I've asked this before, but I'm trying to come up with a system that works for me...
How do you organize your school stuff?
Last semester, I tried bringing a big binder with separate folders, but it got huge and bulky and annoying to use with a tiny desk in a cramped classroom. I liked taking a small notebook with me in my purse and adding the notes to an accordion file at home (like I did at the very end of last semester), but this semester, that's not going to be an option, since I have heavy duty classes every single day.
What's in your school bag right now?
Alternatively, what's in your purse right now? Don't have a purse? What do you carry with you every day?
BONUS POINTS FOR PHOTOS OR VIDEOS!!
What grammatical/spelling error do you encounter on a regular basis?
I've noticed a lot of people saying "hence why..." lately. I'm pretty sure hence already means "which is why" or "therefore". It irks me.
I've also noticed that people tend to write "peak" instead of "pique". As in, "it peaked my interest". That's an easy mistake to make but it bothers me.
My grammar isn't perfect by a long shot, mind you. :)
What was your last purchase? How much?

What are some good/cute things to put in a gift basket for my boyfriend? Or just special things I can do this weekend (besides hookers and blow) to make him feel better and cheer him up?
He's been in the dumps a little lately.
lovely ladies and noble gentlemen of tqc, my roommate is not paying rent. i know how much she makes (i used to work for the same company), and what i'm charging is very reasonable. she's just bad with money. now she's a good sort of person, and besides the not paying rent thing, she's actually very easy to get along with so i'm not really interested in kicking her out. instead i prefer to play (relatively) harmless pranks. i'm sure you know the sort: move her furniture over a few inches to the left, change the position of her cleaning products in the medicine cabinet, put lifts in her shoes, etc etc etc. herein lies the question...
since you all seem clever in your various ways, will you please give me some suggestions for harmless pranks to play?

I went out for lunch today and had "Amazing Chicken" at a Chinese restaurant. The menu says it has: chicken with broccoli, snow peas, red bell peppers, water chestnut, baby corn, and carrots in an "amazing" sauce.
I can't find the nutrition information at all for this. Any ideas on where I could guess this or find this information?

I just got the news that my insurance is willing to cover my breast reduction surgery, and I'm slated to go under on March 17th! (the first day of my Spring Break, so I have until the 28th to recover).

The neighbor kids (about seven of them) are playing right in front of my house, which happens to be central to the room where I keep my computer and study. All I can hear is loud squealing and screaming, and I have a shitload of work to do. How long before

I'm kind of hungry, but not super hungry. There is half of a chicken pesto, cucumber and avocado sandwich in the fridge from yesterday.
Should I eat it now so the avocado is still good, or wait till tomorrow for lunch and risk having it kind of browned?
Edit: Totally eating the sandwich. So worth it. <3
DK/DC: What was the last sandwich you ate?

would it be weird that i'm a girl?
do you like the Beastie Boys?
who's your favorite Beastie?
i started getting into the Beastie Boys when i was 11 or 12 and MCA was always my favorite. only i had him and Adrock mixed up for an embarrassingly long time, like years. so i thought MCA was Adrock and vice versa.
What should I take next term? I'm working on my thesis architecture project (8 cr.) so I really don't want to have too much extra work, but I need at least 4 additional credits to get health insurance and scholarships and stuff.
A. Green Neighborhoods (3 cr.) class + yoga (1 cr.). Nice professor, probably a decent amount of work but not bad, semi-interesting topic. It's a landscape architecture class, so related to my major, semi-related to what I'm proposing/designing for my thesis (a sustainable building center).
B. Italian (6 cr.). Every day, but would force me to get to school earlier. Right now, I end up not getting to campus until the late afternoon on days I don't have early class :/ Which is a bit of a problem (plus my sleep schedule is fucked). If I do not take this class, I will most definitely forget I ever spoke any Italian (took the beginning class, lived in Italy for a bit, now haven't spoken Italian for 2 years). At the moment, I could still get into it fairly easily. Languages are very easy for me.
C. Intensive French Grammar Review (4 cr.). Taking a French class now and really like it (lived in France for a year, like to maintain it). Don't know if I'll be able to get into this class though.
There's also an architecture class called 'Time in Architectural Space' for 2 cr., which I could take with some PE classes, but lord it sounds pretentious. I haven't had a design class in awhile but :/

Guys, the library closes in 50 minutes and I'm going to have to pack up and head home where there is no power. Any suggestions of good books I can grab before I go?
(btw, I'd prefer if they were fiction. And maybe easy to read. I'm not really in the mood for anything heavy tonight.)
I've tried them, and found they're a waste of money. I've tried the Biore brand the cheaper stuff. It does nothing at all. I've tried tips from the internet too.
Looks like my pores have to stay clogged.

TQC, i'm lonely for a boy, but i don't want to be in any kind of relationship.
what.. do i do? more or less, how do i deal with that kind of confliction?
even more specific, why would someone feel two things that are so conflicting?
but this is all pretty moot. it's not like there's anyone sniffing around. but still, it's a ~~confusing emotion. i want to go out and start dating someone, and i like this guy at work quite a bit, but i know i won't want anything passed casual dating, and i wouldn't want to start something just to trash it.
Is there a community for cheap eatings or college student cheap living stuff? I found a couple cookbooks for healthier eating that I want to try but I know healthy does not always equal affordable, especially for college students. So I'm kind of looking for communities or websites that show where you can get cheap foods or the best quality products for cheaper prices.
