you're done talking

wedding related Qs

1) My friend is having a very small, bachelorette party at her apartment soon. She said no gifts, but am I supposed to bring one? If yes, what should I give her?

2) What should I wear to the wedding reception? A few months ago I thought I saw a post on here of dresses that you could get at...Target (?) that would fit the occasion. I'd like to find a modest dress that is relatively inexpensive that I could just go and buy right quick and be done with it. Any ideas?

After graduation, no job prospect, advice much needed

Months ago, I posted that Ive recently graduated in BSc (Hons.) Psychology and that Im confused whether I should work or pursue my masters. While I finally decided that the best option would be to work to gain some exposure to the psychology field and also for the experience, I realised that psychology jobs are not really prospective in my country. Its been almost 3 months since Ive applied. Ive applied in many organisations but its taking forever and some ppl are telling me that the situation is as such. sometimes, graduates wait for a whole year before finally getting a job. Also, is it even possible to work abroad? what are the formalities? I really need suggestions as the whole situation is depressing and making me feel aimless in life.

Just finished reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood, after wanting to read it for so long and being so excited about it... And it was absolutely awful and disappointing. Awesome, dystopian plot spoiled by a god awful narrative and writing style. Sigh.

Tell me TQC, what long-awaited for things have let you down lately?

I met up with a friend of my ex's for a quick drink on Saturday. We got on really well, but I also told him i'm moving far far away in 9 weeks, and that i'm also sort of in a relationship (not 100% true, but what I told him).

He's just asked me if i'm free to go to dinner with him one evening this week.

I'll go, but i'm slightly suspicious of the motives. We're young, so going for dinner just as friends feels formal.

Edit: D'oh! What does TQC think? I'm going to go for the dinner but don't want there to be an awkward atmosphere.

LinkedIn

Have you ever gotten a job (or internship or volunteer opportunity) because of a connection you made on LinkedIn?

If yes, what was the job? How did it relate to your field or degree? Did it end up working out in the long run?

Not on LinkedIn: How did you get your last job?

This video went viral and I'm really not sure what to think about it. It's about this teacher who lost it and ranted for 15 minutes at a student who she believed was being disrespectful. As a soon-to-be teacher (thankfully not middle school), I understand that teachers should never stoop to the level of the children and that we need to be the adult and set an example. This is also a giant waste of instructional time. On the other hand, it makes me nervous because teachers are human and have emotions and that somebody's life could be ruined because they improperly dealt with a situation and nobody except the students in the classroom knows exactly what happened.

What are your thoughts?

Here is the full video

I accidentally took too much Benadryl, mayby 200 mg worth (I'm not going to exlplain why it doesn't matter). I know Benadryl is relatively safe in higher levels but I feel funny and I'm scared I could start tripping out because I've read high doses of Benadryl can result in really scary trips. I Drank probably 2 liters of water to dilute what hasn't been digested.

Is there anything else I can do to lessen the effects? I can't throw up.

I've been hanging out with a girl who works with my fiance. We've become better friends, and she's actually a bridesmaid in my wedding. Today she texted me to tell me that she joined the same gym that fiance and I go to. Then later on she texted me with : "Jeremy and I will go to the gym and you'll come with us" Jeremy being my fiance.

It just sounded kinda off to me.  What do y'all think, TQC?  Is what she said weird or am I looking too much into this?
