Has anyone used melatonin to help regulate a sleep cycle? I read that on the bottle, but I heard from others it just helps you fall asleep.
Now that it's really dark in the winter, I'm sleeping in very late on the weekends and it's hard to wake up on the weekdays. I'm not going to bed later than usual; I'm just sleeping really late. So, my problem is not getting to sleep but waking up from it. Does anyone have any advice, other than just forcing myself to wake up? I've tried that by setting tons of alarms, but I just turn them all off and go to sleep, or if I do get up, I'll nap later.
EDIT: If anyone else has this problem, I found this paper that seems to say tryptophan and St. John's Wort work as well as light therapy.
If you had to do a research report on any one president and any one first lady (they don't have to be from the same couple, you could do John Adams and Julia Grant), who would you pick?
Before you answer: 1. Your president cannot be Washington, Lincoln or Obama. 2. Your first lady cannot be Michelle Obama.
Inspired by my 3rd grade class project that was so goddamn awesome. Those limitations were placed on us because it was before you used the internet to do reports and the teacher wanted to make it fair. So the current president wouldn't have enough information printed yet and Lincoln and Washington would have the most and she wanted everybody to have to do similar amounts of research. Then we had to dress up as them and present our reports to our class and parents.
why can't i stop watching nip/tuck? i started making my way through it because it was recommended on sidereel.com's page for american horror story (if you like this, you might also enjoy...). it keeps getting more and more ridiculous and horrible, and every character is the worst human being ever. it's like a train wreck, and i want to see how bad it will get.
Can you tell me what the text on the image below says??
( Collapse ) Bonus question: When is the last time you received help you did not ask for? Was it appreciated?
Yesterday I was by myself with Jasper (my 2 month old) at Wal-mart and I had him in a pouch sling and the lady in front of me in line saw me struggling to reach the gallon of milk in the cart and started helping me load my groceries on the belt...it was unexpected and very nice :)
it's cookie day! I want to make some I've never made before. Do you have an unusual and delicious cookie recipe that I should try? (no worries about the actual recipe if it's too much effort, basic ingredients work)
Time travel is involved - Is it creepier to be in love with your original love interest's (who is now dead because of the elapsed time) adult child or adult grandchild (either one would be the same age as your original lover)?
On Sunday my boyfriend is having his partner for his acting class over to practice their scene for their final. I told him I'd make dinner, since this is happening at about 6PM. And really, I love cooking for guests. I asked him what he wanted and he said, "something beefy with noodles."
I immediately though beef stroganoff, but I was wondering if anyone had any other ideas for what I could make that has beef and noodles.
What should I cook on Sunday? Should I make a dessert? If yes, what?
i've never had a salaried, etc., job before, and i have no idea how this works. i'm applying for a job that says to mail in my cover letter, resume, and "salary requirements." how should i word my salary considerations? should that be a separate piece of paper, or should i add it to my cover letter? any other advice? thanks!
Have you ever been in a position where you had to choose between two people, in terms of being in a relationship? What did you decide, and what were the circumstances? Are/were you happy with your decision?
What tools can I harness to pry open a stuck window?
It is basically sealed shut because it hasnt been opened in years (possibly over 20+ years....). Its got dust in all the small cracks & it might have been painted over at some stage.. although I dont see any in the window frame/seal/thingie.
I tried using a metal nail filer which worked around the sides.. (i think...?) but it doesnt fit in the bottom bit..
Edit: YAY!! I manged to open it! Nail file + sand paper = victory!
Tomorrow morning, I am calling campus counseling services and scheduling an appointment. It is for many reasons, though the big one is that my emotions run my life and are, in fact, taking the path of ruining my life - or at least, my ability to enjoy it.
Anyway, I'm scared. I have never been to any kind of therapy and I don't know how to do this. I'm nervous and due to a habit of self-depreciation, I feel inadequate for needing help in the first place.
Will you give me some advice? You can share your experiences with therapy if you're comfortable doing that. This is all just so new. Even considering making the call is filling me up with anxiety.
For my photography course I have to have an online portfolio and it's frustrating me so much. I can't afford to pay for web space right now so my teacher has given us websites to go to, to put our work onto. One that she suggested was wordpress but I cannot work it out at all, so does anybody know any blogging websites that are also good for doing things like online portfolios? I'm not sure I want to use flickr or tumblr, but if push comes to shove I'll use flickr.
Has anyone had any experience using moonfruit? Idk how I feel about it and googling reviews hasn't shed much light on it.
I had a cricket ball sized lump of cookie dough that was wrapped in plastic wrap. I was being stupid and pretended to throw it at my partner's head when I accidentally let go and threw it at his balls. I was apologising and hugging him for a bit, maybe less than a minute? Now, we cannot find the cookie dough anywhere. Our house is spotless at the moment but we can't find it! We have a dog, but he wasn't licking his lips or giving us any indication that he ate it in the 30 seconds or so that we had our backs turned to him.
Where the hell did the cookie dough go? The dog didn't eat it did he?
when you have a food item that has a pull back seal (like peanut butter for example) do you pull the whole seal off or do you leave a bit of the seal on the jar and kind of put the seal back over the said food?
it drives me BONKERS when people dont pull the whole seal off the food.
Have you or anyone you know moved to a different country to be with a SO?
How did you manage the move? I imagine you wouldn't be able to take much with you, right? What about getting a job or finances? Did you/they ever regret the move? Either due to the SO or the move possibly being so complicated and hard. How did you/they deal with leaving family behind?
