TQC, I'm having a mental health day today (yesterday was super stressful so I just want to relax today). I'm already planning on having writing time, cleaning time, naptime and movie time. What sort of movies should I watch? And what other things would you do on a "mental health day"?
So i just found out that my dog passed away last night.
What can i do to cheer myself up and to stop crying?
I took Monday off as a vacation day, since I'm getting a little overstressed with work. I had planned to meet a friend for lunch that day. Should I move that to another day, or keep it? If I move it, I can spend my day off getting a pedicure, running some errands and wandering around the library without worrying about what time it is. If I keep that lunch date, I'll have to keep better track of time so I don't run late.
When was the last time you took a day off just for the hell of it?
How is your week going?
i live in the south bay/san jose area. recently moved, so i don't have any friends yet. what should i do tomorrow for my off-day? preferably cheap and somewhat local.
Every couple of weeks, my email starts sending out viruses to my entire contact list. I clear my cookies, run anti-malware and anti-virus scans (I usually do these daily, as well), and change my password, but it's still happening. How do I get these things off my computer for good if the scans aren't picking anything up?
I use AVG and Malwarebytes, and both are fully updated.
What would you want to eat/drink while reading a book? Or what kinds of yummy things would you most want to see on offer at a bookstore? It could be *anything*.
It's a beautiful day out today....no humidity which is a nice change, a nice breeze and the sun is shining.

Do you use fabric softener? Can you tell the difference in wash that's been washed without fabric softener and with the softener? Basically ... does it work for you?
I'm looking to book a trip to Europe for next spring (April-ish). Can anyone recommend a really great website for finding a good deal on airfare? If you've had a good experience with a certain website, please tell me about it!
Also, any tips for planning a trip to Europe on a budget? I'm not going to be backpacking around too much, I'll mostly be staying with family in Austria, but I also plan to spend a week in Paris before I head to Austria, and maybe finish my trip off with a visit to Italy for a week or 10 days. I've just started planning, so no specifics yet :)
So far I'm planning to stay in hostels and picnic a lot. Any other ideas for keeping my expenses in check?
I quit my job yesterday via text (at my manager's request; she prefers texts) at around 3 pm. It's now the next day at 1 pm and I still haven't heard anything back. What does this mean? Did I piss them off badly, or does she think I don't deserve a reply? I was kind of expecting...any kind of reply, to be honest. Is that unprofessional?
I'm going to be in Columbus, OH this weekend visiting my brother who's at Ohio State.
What are some must-do things? My brother's got a heart condition, so bonus points if those must-do things aren't physically strenuous.
My house mate is having a birthday very very soon and we need a themed party to make it fun.
Any idea would be good please?
My mom just called me and asked what I want for my birthday dinner, she said I can have ANYTHING (and emphasized it), so what do I want?
While we're still sort-of on the subject of online dating profiles, for those of you who have them and utilize them:
How do you handle that dreaded first message? What are some of your tried-and-true methods of breaking the ice when you're contacting someone for the first time? Do you make a comment on some portion of their profile that you can relate to? Do you dazzle them with your wit? Charm them by complimenting their pictures? Seriously, how does anyone get over that enormous hump of making first-contact?
i have some extra cash. what should i spend it on?
- digital perm for my hair
- new pair of boots
Is there just one (correct) way to format a resume or are there multiple ones?
Scenario One: A coworker mentions s/he is cold. Another coworker chimes in with, "well, if you'd put some meat on those bones you'd be warmer!"
Scenario Two: A coworker mentions s/he is hot. Another coworker chimes in with, "well, if you'd lose some weight it might cool you off!"
Would you be offended by either of these statements, both, or neither? Is one more "appropriate" than the other?
Bonus: Do you prefer your favorite soda of choice from a can, bottle, or fountain?
How do I reach out to mass amounts of people with Facebook Accounts? Through the computer or in public?

People who dn/dk: What was the last thing you downloaded?
Has anyone here been to Fort Lauderdale on vacation? Any recommendations of things to do/places to go/restaurants to check out? Bonus points if they're vegan/gluten-allergy friendly! (I'm going in September with my boyfriend and I'm super excited but have no idea what's awesome.)
Do you have any secrets? Do your secrets ever make you feel terribly lonely?
What is your favorite animal?
I need a car. I have a full-time job now, and I'm saving up money every week. However, I don't have a cosigner (my parents won't help me out), and I have icky credit. Have any of you ever had luck getting a car either through leasing or financing? I'm having so much trouble, and I'm sick of begging people for rides and paying $17 one way for a cab. Any help is super appreciated!
What are some things you're irresponsible about?
-My room. It can get pretty messy.
-Taking my medicine. Sometimes I forget to take my Paxil until I feel sick from withdrawal.
-School. I've yet to sign up to continue nursing. Maybe next spring after I've worked awhile...
Stupid post time.
This morning, I turned the light on in the bedroom and the bulb popped. I thought my boyfriend would have changed it before he left for work, but of course not! So when I get in from work I go to flick the light on and now none of the lights in the house are working. Google is failing me and I'm scared of the dark and the bf won't be home from work till late.
Why is this happening? And how do I fix it?
/stupid post -_-
I can get one Sims 3 expansion. Which should I get and why?
You may also post cool Sims mods or any Sims related things you wish to share.
1. What was your highschool experience like? Was it positive/negative? Why?
2. Were you part of a clique? If so, which one? How did this effect your highschool experience?
3. Would you say your experience was better or worse than your friends or others you've spoken to over the years? Why?
1. My own experience was very positive. The majority of my highschool seemed to be a pretty inclusive bunch who mixed and mingled, and all generally got along. A lot of people who went to the same highschool have expressed that they felt comfortable going from table to table in the cafeteria, mixing and mingling, and felt generally welcome wherever they went.
2. Probably the drama club. It's a little hard to say because I felt like every clique mixed and mingled so it was hard to put people in one group or another, myself included.
3. A lot of my friends who DIDN'T go to my highschool explain their experience was alot more like MEAN GIRLS, where different cliques were very defined, and often isolated (or even hostile) towards one another, so my own experience seemed to have been a lot more positive. I'm curious what everyone else's was like!
(The subject title is based off Alexandra Robbins' book of the same title, on highschool cliques and why "outsiders" seem to thrive after highschool...an awesome read).
I really want to go back to school. I've decided on phlebotomy or patient care tech. Two of my friends recommended a school called MedRight. They both gave it good reviews and are working at the local hospital. However, when I looked up the school online today it got horrible horrible reviews.
My question: Whose opinion should I trust? I know my friends and they wouldn't tell me to go to the school if it was not good. But I'm scared of dumping a bunch of money into an institution that won't prepare me properly.
DK/DC? What the best job perk you've ever had?
Is there something your parents always nag you about?
My dad no longer speaks to me unless it is to tell me I am the fattest and ugliest of all his children (for the record, I do have a bmi of 23, which might be unsightly on an asian body, since the stereotype is for all of them to be 20 lbs underweight; and a waist to hip ratio of .68). If I happen to look a bit slimmer that day, he'll nag about my white boyfriend, and how white guys would never date an asian girl seriously and that they're only there for sex and that I'm stupid for not going for an Asian guy.
How about you?
Do you (you personally, not general you) still get crushes on people when you're in a long term relationship? How do you deal with it - do you tell your SO, do you avoid that person, do you enjoy flirting with them for a while? Do you like getting crushes on people?
Tell me about someone you have a crush on right now.
Do you think they'll ever bring back Buffy "Once More With Feeling" sing along midnight showings? I want to go to there.
Do you look better with bangs or without?
When did you know your SO was a keeper?
at my townhouse type apartment, the maintenance likes to come in my house literally around every 2 weeks or so to do some up keeping like tomorrow they want to paint around the new lights they just put in 2 weeks ago. last week they wanted to paint the door, a few weeks ago they wanted to come in and change the thermostat. before that they even came into my place without permission because i didnt answer when they knocked, i found the guy upstairs outside my bedroom door!!!!! this is nice and everything that they want to update but i do not like them barging in my place all the time its actually really starting to piss me off.
are they allowed to just come in as they please? also can i say no to them coming in? do i just have to deal with them?

Do you have any interesting secrets in your family history? Or any great love stories and what not?
My grandma was most likely conceived when my great-grandma slept with a guy to get my great-grandpa out of jail -_-. Sooo not really sure of what nationality I am on that side.
DK/DC/MY FAMILY SUCKS:: Why is Michelle Bachman so insane? What family secrets does she have?
I bought a dress today. It's size is 1X, and although I think a 0X would be the best fit, it still fits and looks great. However, the bust area is much too big. It was a cheap dress so I think it'd be worth it to drop a little bit of money into having it altered, if it's not very expensive.
Have any of you ever used a tailor's service for alterations? How much would I reasonably expect to spend on this?
my boyfriend's sister is coming to the UK to visit us (from Australia) for a month in February, where should we take her?
