am i missing something here?

I hired a friend of a friend to do make up at my wedding. She said she would charge $40/person for her services. I said I would pay her for four bridesmaids and she asked for a $40 deposit to hold the day. Instead of the deposit, I paid her in full (mailed her a check for $160 and sent her an email that I had sent it).

Today she sends me an email and asks when I am going to pay her the remaining $40. Am I missing something here? Usually, in my experience the deposit is subtracted from the balance due. I told her that I didn't feel like I owed her anything else, since I paid her the full amount for her services.

Is she right in asking for another $40 for holding the day when I have paid in full?

If you're married, what's a couple of the best wedding or anniversary gifts that you got from friends? Aside from the more typical things. :b

I was a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding last year and we're taking a trip to Europe together this year. We'll be in Paris on the day of their anniversary, and I'm trying to think of something I can surprise them with. I'm debating between buying them something neat, or taking them to an awesome dinner in Paris somewhere.

If you've been to Paris, can you recommend any good ideas, be it dinner, or something else that would be exciting to go to?

I am selling my 2008 iMac to buy an iPad, which I can claim on my tax.

1.) How much should I ask for my old computer?

2.) I created a new administrator account on my iMac and deleted the old one (which had all my data on it). Is there anything else I need to do to return the computer to its original factory settings?

Help identifying a picture

I’m trying to find the photo or painting that this icon was made from:

Does anyone recognize this image? I’ve searched Google Images, to no avail. Unfortunately I also don’t know the source of the icon; I’ve had it for years and somehow lost the information re. where it came from. :( Any help in tracking down this picture would be appreciated!

Dk/dc: what’s the last book you read (can be fiction or nonfiction)? Would you recommend it?

Becoming a Psychiatrist?

What does it take to become a psychiatrist?

Do you absolutely need to get straight A's in order to get accepted to medical school?

I am most definitely majoring in psychology, and if psychiatry seems out of my reach I will definitely get my masters. Is it better off that I give up on my ultimate dream of becoming a psychiatrist because I am not great at math or sciences? Any advice and insight is much appreciated. Thank you!

EDIT: I myself struggle with psychiatric disorders, and have been on various medications, and still on many psychotropics. Going through what I have in life from when I was very young till now makes me a very empathetic and compassionate person. I sincerely want to help those who have gone through the things I have, and more. I understand even with a degree in social work, I can still do counseling, but no offense to anyone who make be a social worker, I just do not see them as qualified enough to truly help those who are severely ill (basically this going off of my experiences with them). That might be ignorant of me to generalize, but maybe I have a lot to learn. My medications, I know have saved my life time and time again. I don't believe they are for everyone, but if someone is severely ill, I can see the right time for them to be used. Whatever route, if psychiatry is not for me, I know psychology is. I need to apply, and discipline myself more.

No matter what I want to be a counselor.
