This may seem like a silly question

What do you do in your spare time for fun out of the house when you're alone? How about with friends? What types of dates do you go on?

I suddenly have a lot of free time, and will have 3 months vacation between school and work, and I'm going nuts from boredom and being stuck at home. I haven't had time like this since I was a wee kid needing parental supervision so I'm actually clueless. I don't really have friends in this city so I can't call up anyone. I'm married so things like going clubbing, drinking, flirting, etc, are off limits. I feel like most random meetups are with the intention of dating or hooking up, or I'm just poor at social things, I don't know. My SO really doesn't do much because he both doesn't want to and can't due to health reasons, so dates are, unfortunately, also out of the question. I'm looking for things to do on my own out of the house.

careers

You're about $50,000 in debt from students loans and have recently come to the realization that you may be in entirely the wrong line of work after landing job after job that you can't stand.

Do you go back to school, go more in debt, and possibly begin a career doing something you like or do you simply try to make it work with the education you already have?

I'm so itchy, tqc! My skin gets dry in the winter and I can't find a lotion that doesn't feel like it's just sitting on top of my skin (and making it extra hard to put on skinny jeans). What do you use?

oscar link?

We just want to watch Oscar's online, anyone have a "real" link?

My husband and I aren't techies, so something just to click and watch would be great.

WHY is the ps4 not backwards compatible? If it were backwards compatible, would you still buy it?

How long do you think it'll be until they no longer make ps3 games?

If your inevitable purchase of the ps4 is unrelated to these issues, why are you buying it?

I'm going to be a World Book Night giver! I'll get 20 copies of Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett to give away. Where should I go to give them away? So far I'm thinking the local train station, a hospital, or perhaps a prison if they'll let me. Any other ideas? I'm slightly worried that people will think it's religious propaganda, lol.

If you have ever been cared for by a nurse and had a good experience, what things did they do that you felt made them a good nurse. Or, if you had a bad experience tell me the things they did that you felt made them a bad nurse.

Were there any musical artists who you thought wouldn't go very far, but ended up being successful?

When Muse and Maroon 5 first came out I thought they were going to fizzle out pretty quickly. Guess I was wrong!

TQC, I'm feeling romantic and not like my bitter, grouchy, and unloving self tonight. So in honor of that, can you tell us some sweet things your SO has done for you? Or maybe sweet things they do for you frequently?

Winter

1. How do you dress comfortably, fashionably and yet stay warm during winter? (Or is that impossible?)
2. Please post pictures of your winter outfits!

I've been living in my parka, track pants and Uggs all winter and I think I should switch it up.

EDIT: I forgot to mention I don't really like wearing skinny jeans/jeans in winter because they are way too tight!
