no-edged sword

Forbidden Communities

(this is my first question here by the way, unless you count my response to "what question would you ask here if you didn't think it was too inappropriate" earlier)

Are there any communities online (LJ or otherwise) that you used to go to, but you (almost) completely avoid now because you feel that you've made a complete fool of yourself there?

I'm going to do the written exam part of my drivers test in a few hours, so of course, I feel slightly nervous.

What was the last thing you felt nervous about?

What are your nervous 'symptoms'? Do you get butterflies in your stomach? Lose your appetite?

Dk/DC: Do you think the picture on your passport/drivers license/other picture ID looks good? I always hate mine.

ETA: I just got back and I passed my written exam! :D

I just replaced my eleven year old desktop for a shiny new laptop! What sort of shit should I compact my laptop with? Should I get photoshop or gimp for all my shenanigans (tell me why)? OMG I GET TO USE PHOTOSHOP AND IT WONT CRASH MY COMPUTER! MIND BLOWING!

I bought a Inspiron 15R, it is lite and I am still worried to carry it around anywhere.

Get motivated or relax?

I have finished all of my obligations today. While I could possibly do more, I don't feel like it. Maybe I need motivation or maybe I should just relax the rest of today.
What are things you do to get yourself motivated? What are things you do without leaving your house that help you relax?

My sister wants me to go on a weekend trip with her to San Francisco.
My mom is in the process of dealing with some major health issues that may require hospital stays and or multiple doctor visits, etc.

Would it be bad if I went away Friday-Sunday?

The trip is in June so I just don't know what the situation is going to be then.

I currently work as a substitute teacher while I look for a job in my field. Last year, I worked as a nanny to fill in a gap of time over the summer. It paid very well but it's still a nanny job. The mom asked me if I'd be interested in working with the family again this summer. I said yes, but it makes me sad that this means I'll have to put off my job search until August. For what it's worth, on a per-day basis, nannying pays roughly double what substituting does. What would you do, take the summer nanny job or keep applying?

What is your favorite food or drink product that you cannot get where you live?

Inspired by my friend mailing me four bags of President's Choice potato chips in the most interesting flavors ever.

I'm looking for cheap cable services in Rhode Island. But the usual cable service provider COX, Verizon are too expensive for only one tv. Satellite TV is not an option since the building does not allow satellite tv. My grandmother does not require HD nor DVR. Any suggestions?

is there a program out there that "rips" mp3's on the web that you can't download?
I want to download lectures but my uni has disabled the option to do so, you can only stream them online.

dk/dc: will you tell me the most interesting thing that has happened to you today?

Contacts lenses wearers: Is it ok to buy contacts and then only wear them once in a while? I've worn glasses most of my life, never worn contacts before. I can't wear contacts at my job- I work in a chemical lab, nasty things can happen- but I would love to be able to wear them on weekends or going out. Is this possible? Or is the adjustment period between glasses and contacts whenever you switch too harsh for this sort of thing?

Should I go to my 3 hour seminar tomorrow?
I haven't read the book properly, I would be spending that time working on more important work, I only have one seminar left after this (ever).
ETA: There are rumours circulating that if you are between degree classifications, they may take your attendance into consideration. My attendance up until now has been pretty good.

Do you have a favorite cake or cupcake recipe?
Are there any particular recipes that you've been wanting to try?

I saw a recipe for butter beer cupcakes and my friend is a total Harry Potter nerd so I was thinking of making them for his birthday.
