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.

Passive aggressive notes and being considerate. [Jun. 9th, 2012|03:49 am]

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?

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?

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).

So. You've made your mind up to eat healthier.

Problem is, you still have junk food in your fridge/cabinets. The canned and dried stuff you can give to the food bank, but...

What do you do with the perishable stuff? Toss it with impunity? Have one last weekend pig-out? Go ahead and treat yourself with it once or twice a week until it's gone?

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.

Do you think your life is getting harder?

For the next year I have to take on a one day placement at a school, finish my third year of university, write and plan a study/dissertation, volunteer counsel at a youth center and work 14 hours a week just so I can live and get into another university to get a teaching qualification. The more experience I get working with teenagers the better because these days qualifications mean jack and I need as much experience as I can.

Part of me just really wants to give up and I'm shitting myself cause I can just about handle going into work for 3.5 hours some days.

[mood |annoyedannoyed]

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..

What is your favorite travel accessory? The most useful? The one you can't live without? (I'm talking stuff like ridiculously fancy microfiber quick-dry high-density super-absorbent towels, not shampoo.) Basically I'm trying to get shopping ideas....

Tips for international flights? I've only ever flown domestic so I've kind of gone into hyperdrive prep mode. Have you ever actually needed nasal spray to keep your nose/sinuses from drying out? Is this just a myth expounded by Rick Steves to boost sales??

DK/DC/I prefer not to hurtle across the Atlantic in a beer can with wings, thanks: What was the last long drive/road trip you went on? How was it? I drove 2 hours to visit my sister and her BF in their new house and it was lovely.

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?
