2. Can we (I'm volunteering the time of Canadian TQC'ers here) answer a question you might have about Canada?
3. How are you celebrating Canada Day?
UPDATE: Turns out I was overreacting. He has been consumed with work for the past day and we are still meeting up tomorrow. He didn't mention anything about being offended by what I said. Hope all works out and thanks for the advice! :]
my partner and i took a road trip to tennessee for a gamers meet up. we decided to split the costs of hotel room, gas, and food for 4 days. i got $150 US out from the bank (which cost me nearly $160 CDN), and up until now, it seemed like that would be enough (we leave tomorrow morning, and i had about $50 left). last night, there was a huge gathering at a certain restaurant, and it was my turn to pay. i left to go back to the hotel before my partner (all-night restaurant; it was nearly midnight, and i was tired), so i gave him $30 to pay for the meal. i didn't expect it to be more than $20 (eating out for the two of us rarely costs more than that, especially since there was no alcohol).
this morning, when, i asked for change, there was none. my meal was only $7. i looked at the restaurant's menu online to check prices, and my partner's meal was nearly $15! plus tip, which my partner is very generous with. so, there's $5~10 that i'm out now, which is actually kind of big deal for me because i'm a student, no job, having to pay rent, bills, and groceries, pretty much totally dependent on my parents for money. i can't afford to be spending even as little as $5 beyond what i need.
how pissed off should i be at my partner for getting an expensive meal and spending all the money i gave him (especially since i was assured it wouldn't be much more than $20)? i told him that i can't afford to take out any more cash, so he's going to have to pay me back somehow. am i alright to be angry at him?
I really don't get American politics, haha.

Can you be happy with a full-time job you're not passionate about?
Explain your answers.
My list in comments. :P
2. You have a [non relative, non SO) roommate who you discover regularly engages in some kind of dangerous/self-destructive behavior or activity. Their actions have NO impact on your living situation together/on you. They pay the rent on time, they keep common areas clean, they are reasonably considerate. Do you bring up/try to talk to them about their dangerous activity? Why or why not?
I have got a spot on my side that's healing up from a punch biopsy and I am about to claw my skin off! It doesn't help that I am reacting to the adhesives on my bandaids, either D:
What's something crazy and/or unbelievable that has happened to you or someone you know recently?
A coworker hit a bear on her way home last night.

DK/DC: My 15-yo sister-in-law left her sketch pad at my house. What should I draw in it before I return it to her?
the question says
“Curriculum planners today tend to see the achievements of education primarily in terms of instrumental values”
Agree/disagree. Blah blah
What does this even mean?
I don't need you to answer it for me, but what is the instrumental value they are considering?
Does it mean that curriculum planners base achievements on the END result? or does it mean that they base curriculum on the JOURNEY to the end result?
Extrinsic vs intrinsic value has always confused me haha.
Thanks TQc, you guys are real gems.
dk/dc: Where would your dream home be located?
Next autumn I'm gong to travel to Perú with my college, but the organization is so bad that i'm considering leaving the event of my college to travel by myself (cause I already bought the passages)
The thing is that I nevertraveled by my own and my friend are really entusiasted with the idea of going with the organization that my college is doing
Did you ever traveled to other country by yourself? Maybe Perú? Do you have any advice?
