I started a new HBC a few days. It has a much higher concentration of estrogen (estradiol), could that be why I'm suddenly experiencing every emotion about ten times more intensely than usual?
ara/nsrs- How do I go about making myself feel better?
Paging Dr. TQC.
What's going on with my body where every time I finish a run after I feel like I'm getting severe period cramps even though I don't have a period?
This has been going on for a couple years, and my family doctor and gyno have no idea why. I'm getting an ultrasound to rule out ovarian cysts, but it's pretty unlikely (had surgery just over 2 years ago to rule out endo and was clear of everything) and my gyno doesn't really expect to see that. So, TQC, why does my body hate me when I'm trying to be more fit? This doesn't happen with strength training which is almost all I do now because cardio leads to this mess. It doesn't matter if I do cardio for 20 minutes or 2 hours.
DK/DC: What are your father's days plans?
Have you ever written a passive aggressive note?
Right now, after being woken up for the 4th night in a row, I am considering writing a note to the people upstairs from us to ask them to refrain from playing the piano at 3am. Or should I just ask my landlord to tell them to shut it?
Are you a considerate tenant TQC?
For the life of me I'll never understand people who, knowing that they're living in a shared space/house/apartment complex have no regard for other people and stomp around banging things about, shouting and playing music in the middle of the night. Do you think people like that are oblivious or do they just not give a shit?
Why do you have so many useless icons?
Will you post with one you seldom use?
What is the upper limit...theoretically...of icons you can have before someone calls you an icon pig? (I'm not icon shaming yanno)
If you found yourself unable to make your rent or mortgage payments and were evicted, would you rather move in with friends, live with your parents, live in a homeless shelter, live in subsidized housing (or something else)?
What's the last movie you saw in theaters? Did you like it?
I saw The Avengers and was horribly disappointed. I feel like all the hype made the movie a real let down.
I'm hungry, what should I have for breakfast?
financial question ahoy!
relative information: i am 24 years old, currently employed but making a pathetic wage (not minimun, thankfully), and my company does have a retirement plan. that being said, i don't plan to be here for more than a few years. i live in silicon valley, ca.
now, i have a relative lot of money - between 10 and 15 grand - just floating around in a shitty student bank account getting no interest or whatever. i never use this money. what should i do with it? should i speak to a financial planner of some kind? does anyone have any recommendations for companies? Should I invest it with an investor? stock market? should i invest it some other way?
I have basically no financial intelligence and have no idea what to do with it. additionally, am i thinking about this too early in life?
The package I am waiting for is 20 minutes away according to online tracking, but I won't get it today because it is the weekend.
Why is UPS so silly?
Why did I wake up this morning and suddenly think my apartment smelt like sulfur? I don't have eggs.
[Edit: since I'm paranoid I called maintenance and they're coming over to check it out]
I'm visiting Los Angeles as part of a foreign exchange program, and on Monday I have day to myself. I'm trying to come up with things that I can do or places that I can visit on my own. Any suggestions or advice, TQCers?
I've already been to downtown LA, Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice, and will probably visit Disneyland and Universal Studios with my companions, so I'm not really looking for any major landmarks or tourist spots, just fun places to visit (and hopefully things to do there).
Do you use an app to access LiveJournal? If so, which one? I am currently using LJapp and, I swear, it used to let me upload pictures to LJ.
When you're riding in a car, do you stick your foot out the window or prop it up on the dash?
If so, how much more comfortable is that than not doing it?
Also, how tall are you?
Is it, in your opinion, as misogynistic to call a girl/woman a "prude" as it is to call her (save reclaiming) a sl*t? Why/why not? What would you think of an effort to reclaim "prude"?
Edit for typo, askghsdj why don't I proofread.
For those in the US: if you've ordered something from another country that was taxed through customs, how did that work? Did you receive a bill? Was it due upon delivery to your house?
I just got diagnosed with tonsillitis. I've been taking ibuprofen for the pain every 6 hours or so for the last couple of days. Just got a prescription for good old amoxicillin. I've been gargling with warm salt water, and I bought some popsicles.
Who's had tonsillitis?
What else can I do to soothe my icky lymph nodes? I'm having a really hard time sleeping.
If you've had it, how long did it last?
dk/dc: Has anyone played the dlc for Infamous 2 (the vampire one), and is it worth getting? I just fired up the game for the first time today.
How did the universities you applied to notify you that you were accepted/rejected?
Have you seen that show Meet The Hutterites on NatGeo? What is up with that show? It kinda reeks vaguely of all those fake shows on TruTv
Who's the most handsome(or beautiful if Scarlet) The Avengers actor?
I vote Chris Hemsworth/Thor. <3 I love.
how many of you feel driven toward nervousness/craziness/anxiety by your cell phone?
Have you ever looked at something for: days, weeks, months, at a time.. and still are incapable of figuring out the solution? Well, this is currently happening to me.. unfortunately. I've been studying for the GMAT, and I can not seem to figure out the genesis of my problems; meaning.. I can't come to a definite conclusion on the right answer. I understand and know that the GMAT is arguably the toughest Master's degree test out there, but, I keep on studying, and keep on attempting to have the most positive attitude towards it, and it seems to be draining my demeanor whenever I get an answer wrong. Plenty of people have told me, the same story, just keep on studying and eventually you will succeed. Well, it has been close to a year now and I still seem to be unable to win in this situation. Does this make me stupid, and incapable of intelligence? Or am I at the apex of breaking into the bubble of correct answers? I have around two months before I attempt the GMAT for the first time and am beginning to worry..
Are there any movies (or stage productions, for those of you who like them) that have stopped just irritatingly short of being awesome for you? What are they and what would you change about them to make them awesome?
What was the last thing you drank (alcoholic or non-alcoholic)? How was it?
I just had a mixed drink that consisted of Peach Schnapps, cranberry juice and Torani Raspberry Syrup. It tasted just like a Raspberry Jolly Rancher.
What's your favorite apocalypse movie(s)?
I'm trying to build my DVD collection. What is a movie/series that every nerd/dork should have? I already bought Firefly, so I'm looking for movies/series like that.
in what way are you hypocritical?
What I like is best described as "eerie," I guess. I love spooky--another good word--things, but not gross or TOO scary. Just, you know, eerie. Like ghosts and abandoned places. I like the adrenaline rush of being scared, but not when i actually fear that something's going to happen to me.
what draws some people to the creepy, scary, eerie, and terrifying?
If you could get any kind of snack right now, what would you get?
Would you be embarrassed to be seen in public with your mom if she were wearing a modest swimsuit (in a completely appropriate place like a pool/beach/etc.)? Your dad?
