Eros dwelling in destruction

Piercings/Preparedness

I just have a (probably stupid) piercing question.

So, I want to get a Monroe. Do I have to something in particular (shop-approved kind of thing) as the labret or could I bring in a piece of jewellery that I wanted?

When was the last time you were unprepared for something?

Housemate drama.

Quick question for advice.

My friend(australian female) has been sleeping with my other friend (American male) for six months now, for some of which they lived together, and always said it was not serious because she was a "traveller"

She has now chosen to stay in America for educational reasons and is continuing to sleep with other men whilst being with my friend in an undisclosed relationship.

She says it won't hurt him because bigger things have happened, referring to when her dad died.
She always says this has changed her perspective on life, however I keep trying to explain to her that people she uses may not have the same perspective as they have not experienced the same life altering circumstances.

Is it wrong of me to feel protective of my guy friend who is now madly in love with her and wants her to move in with him?
Is it even worse of me to be concerned about living with her when she brings random guys home every week?

Don't get me wrong, I've been wild in the past. But she will meet a guy and have him back here in less none five minutes. Not a joke. I literally mean that.
The latest dry humped my leg before I explained I was taken and then an hour later was glued to her face.

I adore her, she is bright and vivacious, but I worry she will hurt anyone who gets close to her.

Bali

Have you been to Bali? What were your favourite things to do there? What would you have done if you had the time? Or if you want to go to Bali, what would you like to do?

Trash

Our trash pick up is on Tuesday and Friday. Usually I need to put trash out only 1 of those 2 days because our trash can is pretty huge and it is nowhere near full even if I only do trash day donce a week. Sometimes I put it out anyway if there is something stinky in it.

I can't help but notice how much trash some others in our neighborhood always seem to have. Their trashcans are always overflowing and often items like boxes and even more trash bags are outside of the can on the ground. My immediate neighbor has a 2nd trashcan that is always out and full. These houses seem to always have the trash cans out both days as well.

How are they making so much trash?! I'm not particularly conservative and I have a young child so until a few months ago, I had a few extras like wipes and diapers and we still have nowhere near the amount others seem to have. There is NO recycling here. :(

How much trash do you have in a week? Contents?

In NYC for 2 days, what should I do?

I'm going to be in Manhattan late tomorrow (Saturday) through early evening on Monday. I'm looking for suggestions on more obscure things I can do, and particularly architecture, urban design and general design related things. I've toured the city and visited some of the major museums (MoMA, Guggenheim, Met, Natural History, Folk Art RIP) on previous trips. Anything really interesting built since 2010 that I should check out? Definitely want to visit the new FDR Four Freedoms park, considering also checking out Brooklyn Bridge Park, and I've never been to the Brooklyn museum. Considering visiting the 9/11 memorial.

If I don't come up with a lot of awesome stuff, I'll be trying to get matinee Broadway tickets, probably in the TKTS line. (I'm seeing Avenue Q in the evening).

I was told by a starchitect that if I could make it to NY this summer, I should definitely check out the current exhibits at the MoMA (don't recall which ones) and the Turrell exhibit at the Guggenheim, but I've been to both museums twice before and feel like maybe it won't be worth it? I've always wanted to see a Turrell installation, but I heard his show at the Guggenheim is a bit chintzy.

HELP???? What are your favorite things to do in NY, TQC?

I'm applying to a job in the verbal department of a marketing/branding agency. The position consists of working within a creative team to craft names of brands and slogans. They're obviously looking for someone who can write well and is good with words.

They want me to submit writing samples, but they don't specify what kind of writing they want to see.
What do you think they want to see and what would you send if you were applying to a job of this nature? I'm guessing NOT a college paper.

I've been wanting some super glossy black wayfarers forever. When I browse on sites, though, I can't tell which pair are the exact ones that I'm looking for (there are too many). Can any of you help me find what I'm looking for?

Hmm, I've wanted to do tutoring but I feel a little insecure about it. Does anyone know of any good books, websites, or even classes?

Does anyone tutor? How do you feel about it?
