Where did you go on your honeymoon?

If you haven't had a honeymoon, where would you like to go?

We want to go somewhere warm and tropical, so we have been thinking about Tahiti, Bali.... idk. Ideally we'd go somewhere with great beaches but also somewhere that has things to do.

I just relocated for a new job. I'm really nervous and I don't know what to do about this situation.

When I accepted the job, I was told Monday the 22nd would be my start date. I've been in touch with the HR person over the past couple of weeks in this office to submit paperwork. I've asked her twice now what time I should be in the office on Monday but she's never responded to my question. The last bit of my paperwork only went through on Thursday, maybe I haven't been cleared yet by the main office? (I don't know why she wouldn't just tell me that though!)

What would you do? I've thought about calling early on Monday morning or just emailing the supervisor ( the person who interviewed me) but I don't think she checks her email on the weekends. Are there expectations for this sort of thing?

Those of you who are on have been on HBC, how does it affect you emotionally?

I feel I've become way more emotional and anxious than I used to be, and I'm starting to think it might (partly) be because of the pill I've been taking for about two years now.

Also, I've been feeling like absolute crap the past couple of days, crying at the drop of a hat, convincing myself all kinds of horrible things are about to happen, for no reason - except, I just realised, I took my pill two strips in a row to avoid a period. Do you think not taking a break between pill strips can cause this?


In my 30 years on this Earth one thing I've noticed is that no two people make ramen noodles* the same. How do you make ramen noodles? Have you every made switched your style up?

How do you talk to your pets? I know people who talk to their pets as they would any person, but then there are other pet owners whose voices get higher pitched or may even do "baby talk".

Also, will you tell me about things your pets do/have done that make you laugh?

Cure for the Common Bit-Lip

I've bitten the inside of my lip and whenever I chew food I end up biting it again.
Is there anything I can do to make it heal faster?
What else can I eat without hurting myself?
I'm starting to get tired of nothing but smoothies and water, and applesauce and Jello isn't very filling.

I don't have an MBA and my husband, who does have one, knows the entrepreneurial ins-and-outs of Panama rather than the US, so I need some advice.

He and I are strongly considering starting a business in a market that is not saturated and is actually somewhat lacking - we wouldn't have a huge amount of competition and I have experience in the administrative end/have reached out to some mentors but they run this type of business in a different country so I'm not sure how this works in the US.

Basically starting the business would require the purchase and rehabbing of a large building. This plus the cost of materials, advertising, etc. would probably be somewhere in the 2-3 million dollar mark.

Assuming people who start businesses that need a start-up budget of about that much money DON'T have it, how do people go about securing this type of money? I have zero collateral, being that I rent, so I don't know that a bank would lend to me. Any suggestions? It's something that I'd really love to do but I'm totally lost about this step.
