My left eye stings a lot this morning. It felt a bit funny last night but nothing major, I just thought it was my contact being dry so I took them out. This morning, yeah, it stings, there was a bit of white stuff in the corner when I woke up, and it wont stop tearing. And it is red. No part of it looks swollen though, not upper or lower eyelid, and only the actual eyeball is red.
In addition to discomfort, this is annoying because it means I can put contacts back in and I do not have glasses so...blurry vision fun times, ha.
So want to play amateur diagnosis game with me? What do you think is probably wrong with my eye? Is it something I can deal with myself? (Wouldn't be able to see someone until tues/weds anyway so hopefully it is...) What you suggest might ease the eyeball discomfort some? :0
I am thinking, for my 25th birthday, I will have a bouncy house. But I want to know what I'm looking at price-wise without calling for a quote.
(I have never had "that dream" where I'm going about my business and suddenly realize I'm naked. I do have a lot of chase dreams and I am usually being chased by some type of authority figure(s) rather than animals or monsters or anything. I had them more when I was younger, though.)

ALTERNATIVELY, do you like golf?
Please & thanks.
Would you rather have...?
I'm planning on staying at a hotel with a kitchenette in it. No oven, but it does have a stove, microwave, and toaster. And a full-sized fridge. There's a 'complimentary continental' breakfast consisting of fruit and pastries every morning.
I don't plan on doing much those three days except studying my butt off. (This could change - I have friends that live in this city - but I'll only meet them for a meal. No out whooping it up when getting this license means a big pay raise.)
What should I bring to eat/drink?
DK/DC/jeez, just live off takeout for three days: What are/were your best studying methods?
Got it. Thanks. :)
What did you eat for lunch today?
I could go for potatoes-especially hashbrowns.
DK/DC-what colour is your shirt?
Do you misplace things frequently or do you generally do a good job of keeping track of things? Is there anything you're currently missing right now?
for non-readers, describe a funny scene you witnessed in real life.

The only things off the table are Celtic knots and writing of any kind, because I don't have the time/skill to do it justice.
How would you feel if multiple professors called you a paradox?
Would you be insulted being called a paradox?
What tv show do you like best?
Any idea what the name was?? I thought maybe Morgan Freeman was the guy but none of his movies on imdb ring a bell.
Edit: thank you! It's Black Snake Moan!
So what's your favorite romantic comedy?

I was watching TV with one of my siblings and we saw a commercial for one of those reality shows. In the commercial there was a black man who was telling his mom how he wants a tattoo and the mother was like, "OH HELL NO!" I made a comment while watching the commercial that I think only certain skin tones look good tattooed and my personal opinion is that the inks rarely look as good on darker complexions. My sister said my remark was racist. Which I replied with that it was just my artistic opinion that the art work never really shows up as well as it does on lighter complexions. We didn't discuss the subject any further but I started wondering if my opinion could really be translated as racist and overall it sort of annoys me how ignorance is automatically glossed over as racist and I truly think that does not teach anyone anything.
So my questions are, do you think what I said was racist or possibly just poor taste and maybe something I should keep to myself?
Do you agree or disagree with my remark about tattoos looking better on certain skin types? Pictures are a plus if you think tattoos can be beautifully executed on darker skin tones.
What are your view points about people who verbal hit and run of slapping someone as racist without any explanation of why what they said is wrong?
Should I try emailing my professors first? I really don't want to fail any of my classes but I'm so worried they won't give me any kind of help since it's so late in the semester. Or they just won't care.
Will you help me come up with a slogan/catchphrase/saying for my business cards?
I ran out and am reprinting cards for my photography business "Dragonfly Photography"
So far I have :
"Because moments matter"
"Turning moments into memories"
"Capturing moments, making memories"
They all seem too cheesy/generic but Im not sure its possible to get away from that.
DKDC: Will you show me the last photo you took?

Who would you rather work with/hire?
Which of those would you be most willing to date?
The whole situation has really been getting to me, to the point where it's actually making my anxiety really bad. I've started having attacks before bed during the week and at work now, which is fucking over my job performance even worse and making me more anxious. I can't take any time off to go to a doctor about it and get back on medication because missing days means a write up and I already have to take at least a day and a half off to go to court in a different city. To make things worse, my coworkers are mostly under 20 and all act like it. There was a dresscode issue recently (i.e. they actually started enforcing it) where I felt targeted because I was the the first one to be called out on it, and now everyone assumes its my fault it's being enforced, especially since it's getting especially hot here (hello Arizona). I don't particularly care what a bunch of 19-year-olds think, but it does make the atmosphere tense.
If I quit now, I am allowed to reapply in 90 days and hope for a different, non sales-based project, but if I'm fired they won't rehire me. I'm probably going to get fired, because I can't really make the sales they require. Either way I'm fairly certain I'm going to lose my job.
tl;dr hate my job so much it makes me anxious. two options are
a) quit and hope for rehire in three months, keep job hunting and hope something comes through or
b) try and stick it out but probably get fired due to anxiety of job but taking time off to go to the doctor would get me written up and most likely they would care anyway because this is a right-to-work state.
Nvm, we got it!
What crazy life plans did you make?
Did you follow through on any of them?
I'm beginning to make plans to move from the UK to the Netherlands at some point in the next 2 years. Do you have any advice? srs/non-srs.
SO my issue. who should i write it about?! i dont want to do someone lame or overdone.
Have you or would you ever use one?
I'd like to be healthier and lose more weight. I'm pretty sure it's my diet that's slowing my progress down. If I lose half a pound in a month, not a week, it's been an excellent month. I've already changed my diet drastically in the past couple years, but still need to improve it but can't without constant cravings and feeling deprived. I haven't had much success on my own for nearly a year.
I don't want a program like weight watcher's which focuses solely on weight and has you eating pre made foods. I want a healthy program that's maintainable for life.
Yes, I still shop at Claire's. ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE ME.
If you could choose what you'd dream about tonight, what would it be?
You'd be pretty fucking pissed if someone waited after you'd had sex for two weeks before they told you they had an easily transmittable STD, right? Even if it wasn't a lethal, unable-to-live-with-this one?
Have you ever worried yourself sick?
What's the worst rejection you've ever faced? How/did it change your life?
