Have you ever broken up with someone for their sake, not for yours? If so, I'd really like to hear about it. I'm considering breaking up with my boyfriend because I'm so suicidal day after day that I know it has to be a toll on him and I can't put that shit on him any longer. We've been together almost five years and for the last year and a half, I've been so depressed and suicidal that I can't bear to put him through it any more. I want him to be happy and I don't think he could be happy with me.

If you don't know or think the first question is too attention-craving/shitty/selfish/etc., what is the most interesting fact you have learned over your lifetime?

I am very sick and so doing much more than lying in my easy chair moaning and stalking online forums is out of the question. I have been playing video games but my experience and taste is limited to Halo 4, Zelda (Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword), GTA, and Super Mario.

We have a Wii and an Xbox 360.

Will you recommend some games that I might like?

riddle

I came across this riddle some weeks/months back. It involved a man, a woman who does not speak English, and a baby. I think in the riddle, the man says whatever the woman says is lying, and one of them says the other is evil.. and you have to decide who to trust. I may have gotten some details wrong, but that's the general gist of it.

Does anyone know what the actual riddle is (please don't spoil the answer for me)?

edit: it's this!

A girl I am friends with just put a photo up on facebook. She is on her way home, travelling on the affectionately nicknamed "Highway of Death," one of the worst highways in the country for fatality accidents. The picture is of her boyfriend driving, with one of her dogs ON THE DASH in front of him. He's kind of.. peering over/around the dog. You can see the speedometer in the picture, so I know they aren't parked or anything, they're at highway speeds. WTF RIGHT. I think I would call the cops if I witnessed anything like this esp at such a high speed. and she has been in town long enough that I would be surprised if she hasn't lost someone to that highway. also where is her other dog.. I can only assume under the brake pedal because WTF IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD.

What was the last thing to make you go WTF?

My skin is oily. It's gotten better recently, but yeah, pretty darn oily. I just ran out of my skinID stuff, which is what mainly helped with my skin not being so oily, and realized I hadn't gotten a package in a long time. I looked it up and it turns out skinID isn't a thing anymore! I shrug and figure that using some stuff my mother gave me a bit ago would be fine.

I was so, so, so wrong. I got the first break out in a year or two (that wasn't related to pms). I had used a mud mask from Seacret, 2-in-1 exfoliate/cleanser from Mary Kay, and a moisturizer from Avon. I'm pretty darn sure it wasn't the mud mask, 'cause even though I bought it years ago it's, well, mud.

Mom thinks it was the moisturizer. Or that since it's been ages since I properly exfoliated, the crap all came up and caused zits. I'm also wondering if I even need the moisturizer, even though the 2-in-1 says I need to apply one afterwards. I mean, my face gets so bloody oily, why add more to it?

Should I keep exfoliating until all the crap is out of my skin? Use a different moisturizer, or none at all? I didn't realize just how clueless I was.

ETA: is there anything out there like skinID, where it's very personalized?

I'm working full-time as a teacher. I'm usually working from 6:30am until around 9pm between grading and planning. I also go to grad school. Last semester I took two required classes and was able to manage work and school. This semester only one required class is offered, but I was considering taking a second as a way to get a potential pay bump several years from now.

Do I take the second class?

Pros: Eventually, I will be a few credits closer to getting a raise
If I leave school after the first class, I will most likely spend at least two hours sitting in traffic. If I take this class, I will be spending those two hours in this class.

Cons: I don't need the class, so I'll be spending money that I don't really need to spend right now.
If I chose to drive home in traffic, I could be home around 8pm instead of 10pm (this would leave me time to do things for work)


Have you had to make any big decisions lately?

Strawberries

I have a gazillion strawberries and I need ideas! TQC, what are your favorite strawberry desserts?

DK/DC Why is my dog scared of his rawhide bone? He's had mini ones before but since he is a bit bigger, I bought him a bigger rawhide bone and the bugger is scared of it.

What are the best PlayStation 2 games? (Or your favorite?)

I've played Harry Potter, Silent Hill 2 and 3, Kingdom Hearts, and Psychonauts on the PS2. I'd like to play more games, since recently acquiring one.

You get a magic wish. Which would you prefer?

A) From this moment forth, you will always make the right choice. From small details ("should I order the lobster?") to life-changing events ("should I go back to school, and what should I study?"), your choices will always lead to your maximum happiness and fulfillment.

B) You get an awesome set of purely physical superpowers. Flight, ninja-style wire-fu, regeneration, superhuman strength, stuff like that.
