I got two letters from my technical school today. The first informed me that I was on academic suspension for failure to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP), because I either a) had not completed 67% of attempted classes (I've completed 100% of my attempted classes), or b) did not maintain a 2.0 GPA. (my GPA going into this semester was, in fact, a 2.0) but...letter #2 was from the Office of the President, congratulating me on being on the Dean's List for having a 4.0 this semester, bringing my cumulative GPA to 3.23.
Now, the obvious solution is to call up the Financial Aid office and see whassup, but of course they're closed for the long weekend...which means I get to spend the next 4 days in complete turmoil over WTF is going on (yay, anxiety!).
So, TQC, what have I done that indicates I'm not meeting Satisfactory Academic Progress?!
dk/dc: newest album in your itunes/music player of choice?
Why did China buy AMC entertainment?
Say there are two people, both doing something generally considered immoral. Having an affair, say. One person is athiest, the other is a Christian. Do you judge the Christian harder, or both equally the same?
Why does my local movie theatre's website have a link to the weather forecast?
To anyone who wears an engagement ring, or other jewelry:
How often do you take your ring off? Do you shower with it? Do you sleep with it? I just got engaged last night (YAY!) and I'm the kind of person who loses things all the time, so I'd rather not take it off like.. ever. Is that stupid? It's made out of palladium and has a CZ instead of a diamond.
Can you think of any movies that are similar to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil?
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
I have 9 if you count hiking boots and slippers
I am really depressed today and am in need of a pep talk. Would you mind giving me one? I just need to be told everything thing will be okay. It's a combination of health problems and financial problems. Thanks, guys.
ETA: Thank you for all the help and kind thoughts. Believe it or not, I feel better. You guys are awesome.

Did your first date with your current and former significant others go well? Did you know pretty early on that you wanted to continue seeing them?
I ordered something on amazon.com a few hours ago and went with super save shipping. In my confirmation email i noticed the estimated delivery date in June 4-5. I am leaving the country on the 3rd and wanted the stuff before i leave to take with me. I know from experience that sometimes the estimate is a lie and stuff comes earlier, but...
Should I risk not getting it, and hope it comes faster, or should I contact them and try to make more for faster shipping? The whole order was about $60, the extra shipping would probably be at least $10 or so. I really don't want to spend more unnecessarily but if the stuff doesn't come before I leave that would be pretty fail.
I don't know what to do. What would you do?
1) Excluding villains, who is your favorite supporting character from a Disney movie?
2) Who are your favorite authors that aren't white men?
3) If your pets could talk, what do you think they'd sound like?
I want to make an embroidery piece with the quote "Time does not change us, it unfolds us." Should I include some kind of graphics or just the text? What graphic should it be?
I have loads of over ripe tomatoes and its too hot to make soup.
What can I do with them?
Is there anything you really enjoy that you've discovered because of TQC?
I'm drinking a big glass of water with cucumber and ginger slices in it, which I never would have thought of before someone suggested it to the person who was looking for alternatives to plain water. It's delicious.
Will you post pictures of the kind of clothes/styles you find sexy on your preferred sex?

Do you have any stereotype about any nationality/religion etc.? Common we all do somehow :P

Have you ever made a facebook page for a business?
TQC, what's annoying you right now?
My dad is off getting his hair done or something and has been there for two hours (what do you do to a man's hair for two hours, anyway? He doesn't even have much of it!). We're going grocery shopping tonight for food for this weekend, and he told me he was going to be home at 7. Fine, I said. This gave us enough time to go shopping and get back in time to put my grandma to bed at eight, and then go get dinner for ourselves. I called him a few minutes ago to see if he was on his way home, and he said "Oh, I'll be out in about half an hour." Sigh! So now I only have less than twenty minutes to shop for groceries if we still want to be back by 8. A few minutes either way shouldn't make a difference but it's the principle of the thing. Also, my boyfriend called earlier and asked if my dad could give me a ride over to his house later tonight, since we have an event tomorrow morning on the other side of town and it would be easier for my boyfriend and I to go together. I asked my dad and he made a noise of abject "do I HAVE to?" at me. Dad, I ask you for rides to different places maybe twice a month. Come on now.
when was the last time you were "that girl" or "that guy"? this can apply to any situation where you were the person doing something you'd normally be irritated by?
I was on the phone while going through a drive through because I got an important call just as I was going through and I thought the wait was going to be longer. I hated myself the entire time.
why are those t-shirts called 'wife beaters'?
do they have a better name?
1. How do I actually know when, if at all, to have someone surgically rip out my wisdom teeth, as opposed to people just trying to get money? (adult)...How about if I throw TMJ into the mix?
2. What about Fleetwood Mac's Sara reminds me of suicide? Was there a film with the song in a suicide scene, or is this just imagined?
someone on craigslist is selling a lovesac for $80 and i'm going to check it out...what should i look for besides stains, smells, rips, bed bugs? why is it so cheap?
So the pool in our complex opened today and while today was too cool for me to swim, tomorrow's supposed to be mid-80s so I think I'm going to try.
Thing is, my only bathing suit is a two-piece, which means revealing a rather large burn over my stomach from a heating pad (it's not gross, it's just discolored).
If people ask me how I got the burn, what should I tell them?
Will you post a picture of the car you learned to drive in?
Has anyone tried D-mannose for urinary/kidney infections? Benefits/drawbacks?
