What is your sleep-routine? Do you give yourself a bedtime and a waking time? How long does it normally take you to fall asleep?
I've been trying to get myself to sleep around midnight, with the hopes of waking around 8am, but for the most part, I go to sleep when I want, and I usually sleep until 9:30 or 10:00am, regardless of how much sleep I got. But when it comes down to it, I HATE stopping doing things to lay down and sleep. Even though, like now, I can feel my eyes straining, and I'd probably be asleep within 10 minutes if I laid down (which is fast for me) and I can't do much else that's productive with as tired as I am, but I reallyreally just don't like going to bed. Anyone else like this? Or does anyone have a helpful mantra/mindset/thought process that helps them enjoy the process of going to sleep? I'm trying to enforce some more structure in my life and am struggling with this aspect of it.

TQC, decide my life for me. I am bored senseless and want something to do today. It can involve my car, which has about 120 miles left in the tank, and maybe it should involve taking pictures, but I don't know where to go to take photographs. But I don't really have any money to do anything with that. What should I do today? I live in Lompoc, CA if that's any help. Not much out here.
ETA: Will you give me examples of every day things in the world that I can take pictures of?
What does the term bollock juggling mean? As in 'I didn't do much when I was there. Bollock juggling mostly. And I drank a lot of Starbucks'
can i wear ankle-length footless tights/leggings with a fancy dress and flats? my foot would be uncovered in the shoe and it'd be visible. aside from my feet being cold, is that weird? the dress and tights in question are black and the shoes in question are either blue or red. if not i can try to find my gray footed tights but i don't know if they made it last time i moved...
ETA these tights/leggings (they're like really thick tight material, not jersey like normal leggings) look super awkward with this dress no matter what shoes i wear, and i can't find my gray tights. bare legs it is unless i can pick some cheap black hose up on the way there... thanks for the help!

fact: i had emergency dental work done last night. i had two infected molars opened up, medicine put in, and then sealed with temporaries until root canals could be completed in a week. am i right in assuming this raging fever i now have is a result of pockets of infection being opened up by the dentist, and not because of the penicillin i'm taking?
Most lasagna recipes call for around 2 qts of sauce to be used in a 9x13 pan. I am going to be using a 11x16 pan. I have 4 qts of sauce.
Do I have enough sauce? It's homemade and it's fucking perfect but I could add some more of my frozen homemade stuff if necessary, but I also don't want to waste it if I don't have to. Thoughts/opinions?

DK/DC: What kind of body wash/soap do you use in the shower? I'm partial to Sonic Death Monkey from Lush but I'm using up a bottle of Victoria's Secret Champagne and Strawberries. It's not the best smelling thing, but it gets me clean.
do you know of any countries/schools that offer free or really cheap tuition for international students? i know sweden stopped doing this recently, but it looks like norway still does (and has programs taught in english). do you know anyone who has gone to a random country just for the cheap school? any thoughts on the issue?

Have you ever actually thought to yourself, "Damn, I miss middle school"?
I'm dying of snot at the moment, and all I want to do is slob about the house in my pyjamas feeling like death. Unfortunately, my temperature regulation has gone to hell, so pyjamas are out. I need to get me a nice nightdress style thingy instead. So question number one: Is there anywhere in the world that makes nightdresses or dresses that are two sizes smaller in the bust than in the bum, or am I just going to have to get rich and get some custom made clothes? And question number two: will you tell me about your size disparities to distract me from feeling not just ill but also mis-shapen?
Do you think Roxanne stopped putting on the red light and walking the streets at night after she heard that song by Sting and The Police?
I'm not much of a baker and I know this sounds horrifically stupid of me, but if I don't have cooking spray, should I use butter or brush on olive oil to grease the cookie sheet? I'm making sugar cookies.
TQC I'm going nuts. After unforeseen circumstances I'm stuck living at home. I need out. Now. How long will it be before I get a big girl job so I can support myself and move the fuck out?
Where do you go to find real jobs? I've applied and had phone interviews for several, but it doesn't ever go beyond that. :/ I'd prefer websites to search because gas is expensive, and I don't want to use it frivolously.
What are you reading recently?
This question is probably asked from time to time. But what ouija board experiences have you had? (Have you ever asked your parents if they've tried a ouija board?) Did it scare you at all? Do you think ouija boards are dangerous? Or all in good fun?
I've only tried it a couple times. Once with a friend in her bedroom. The board started to say "hag under the" at which point my friend freaked out and threw the board. We were probably in 4th grade. Same age, same friend, we were in the car while her mom was driving, and the board said "are you scar" at which point my friend threw the board again. =b It was really exciting and fun to me. I don't know what to make of the ouija board, though.
I'm in a really shitty mood, TQC. Cheer me up?

Anyone wanna share their notes?
I'm a sucker for beauty products, and I'm always wondering what other people's favorites are, so! What are your absolute favorite or go-to beauty products? Hair, body, makeup, etc. Pictures are awesome, by the way.
And if you don't care about beauty products, what is/are your worst experience(s) with a boss or supervisor? My boss right now is driving me completely up the wall in so many ways, and if I didn't love my fellow employees to death, I'd quit on the spot.

Do you have any tips on time management? Or any links I could refer to? I need to develop my study skills and time management and I have no idea where to look for advice. =/ Google is failing me.
