Will you give me some suggestions for things to do, especially if it involves food and drink? We eat everything and anything, and love to try new things. As far as sightseeing goes, we've got the basics covered, but anything off the beaten touristy path would be great.
Also, brownie points if you have an excellent Chinese or Asian restaurant to suggest.
As a teenager it really helped with studying and keeping focus, but now that I am in my twenties dotors refuse to prescribe it becuause it has a "street value".
I don't really understand why though. Of course it is a legal drug and if I'm going to sell it that's on my own conscience - not that I would. Is it possible to get Ritalin as an adult? I feel like it would really help with day-to-day living and may help me get off the antidepressants.
When you go on long vacations, what arrangements do you make for your pets?
Anyway, would you be concerned if someone gambled on a regular, weekly basis? Like, every week, they were going to a casino to play the slots and count it among their favorite activities? This person doesn't make a ton of money, either. I don't know any other relevant factors, though- like how much they usually lose/win, their lifestyle, if their gambling is negatively impacting anything else, if it's a priority or just a fun activity for them, etc.
I guess I just have this nagging concern that gambling that regularly might be a sign of a habit or addiction, or one that may develop at some point.
What would you do when you're done, if you were in my situation?
For background on how busy I have been this finals period:
I had a 12-page essay due Wednesday. I had a final Thursday. I have a 10-page paper and a 5,000-word paper due today. I have a final tomorrow night. I have a 12-page paper due Thursday.
I have had a significantly short amount of time to do all of this, so everything has been jammed into a period of a little more than a week.
How should I celebrate when I'm done besides buying a Christmas tree, because that's all I really have planned?
Have you started finals yet? What do you have to do?
-edited to fix stupid typos/errors. I am brain dead currently.
And for commenting purposes.... Do you have any real life ghost stories? I'm pretty sure I've lived in a couple haunted houses, so now I'm in the mood to hear spooky stories. Do you even believe in ghosts??
My cat is an indoor cat, so of course he'd have his litter box, and a giant jug of water. Aside from being lonely, is there any harm in leaving him alone for 6 days? We have left him for a long weekend before with a big bowl of food and he was fine. Thanks!
There's a clown serial killer in your town, and he's preying on people that seem to match your profile. Your hair color, your age, your weight, and for some reason, the other victims' names all began with the same letter as yours. Even though he's dressed as a clown, he's thus far eluded capture. What precautions would you take?
You get home one Saturday night, and you REALLY have to pee. As you hop out of the car (or cross the street, if you don't have a car), you notice there's a mini cooper parked in front of yours, and it has a Ringling Bros. bumper sticker on it. On the sidewalk right in front of it, you notice an elongated muddy footprint. Almost comically large. You also happen to notice that one of the windows where you live seems ajar, when you know you closed everything before you left. Your bladder is bursting. What do you do?
Before you have a chance to react, the clown comes running out of your front door, towards you. You have a few seconds to react. What do you do?
Due to your quick thinking, you manage to get away, and you lure him to a public place, where there happens to be a police car. The killer is captured! You're safe and considered a hero! They got the clown on several charge of murder already. The police ask if you'd like to press charges. That would probably mean making a court appearance, and he'll be there looking at you. What do you do?
When you go back to your place, you smell something cooking. Apparently, the clown was getting bored waiting for you and baked a lasagna. It smells good, and is ready to serve. Do you eat it?
I'm going to be primarily using it in the US, is there a better/long term cheaper option?
I'm thinking of the initial cost and the cost of buying things on it. You don't really come across Nook's etc here so much.
item location: New Jersey
my location: Georgia
shipping via: USPS
Alternately, are there any other wed editors that are user and kind-of-old-macbook friendly that you guys would reccommend?
Is there any famous person whom you don't personally know whose death would literally bring you to tears? If so, who is it? You can have more than one.
(Danny Trejo isn't mine btw, that was just a random happenning. Although I do like him in Machete.) I'm not saying mine as I have no intention of jinxing.
DK/DC Have you ever laughed in the face of death? Do tell.
edit; lmao why are my video embeds different.

And who are your least favourite?

My boyfriend texted me to say that he had booked my shifts at work for me, and I responded with 'thank you, but I can do that myself x' I think I am annoyed for the following reasons: Firstly, I feel embarrassed and uncomfortable when people do nice things for me, however small. Secondly, he constantly offers me lifts home et cetera, despite us living fairly far away from each other, and I (possibly irrationally) feel that he thinks I can't cope by myself.
Am I being a bitch?
2. How reputable do you think the Open University is? I recently realised that I really do not want to go to university anymore, but I really do want a degree. Considering the fact that one needs no qualifications to get in, I am not sure just how much the degree is worth.
ETA: Sorry I did not explain properly - he texted saying 'what is your availability for next week? Is Monday Wednesday Friday alright?' I said 'that's fine, but why are you booking my shifts?' He said 'because I'm nice lol.' I said 'thank you. I can do it myself, though.'
I suppose it just felt a little smothering.
Open University is a distance learning course in the UK.
People who have kids: having had a child, how much parental leave did you take from your job, and was it sufficient?
My co-worker just got back from a 6-week maternity leave - that's all the paid leave my company offers - and I feel bad for her. Her mother-in-law is going to be taking care of the child for a month, and then it's off to daycare for him.
NB: The medical issue is not cancer and Edit: wrong form of word, oops
Would giving her a pair of earrings be too personal of a gift? She had them pinned on pinterest and aren't expensive or anything ($20ish)
Also is it super creepy that I found her pinterest to get gift ideas? I hate giving gift cards.
"well plese just try not to spread the germs all over common areas
not saying u were
just saying be conscious of it
2. If you go to or have ever been to counseling/therapy, did you need a referral from your doctor to go or can you just call up a therapist and make an appointment? Also, did you find therapy helpful? I've been thinking about going for a while due to issues mostly relating to sex and sexual assault and am wondering how helpful it has been for other people.
