Additionally for those who use a tablet for illustration, which is what I want the stylus for, how hard do you find you need to push down? The stylus I bought won't make more than a few dots when I try to use it to draw a line and even if I push harder it doesn't do more, I'm returning it to the store tomorrow.
In the interests of full disclosure, I'll admit that several years ago I had a dream about Eminem that made me fancy him for a couple of years. I grew out of it though.
So, any stories?
DK/DC If you dream, do you usually enjoy dreaming? Do you ever have epic adventure dreams? Do you tend to dream about things you've experienced in RL? Do you have nightmares or not? Do you dream in colour or black and white?
brought to you by the 2AM-2PM I have now....
What would you do if you were fired tomorrow?

If an entire class fails a test is it the teacher's fault or the fault of the students?
It is absolutely the fault of the teacher. I might understand if a few students failed a test, but if the whole class fails the teacher did not set clear expectations of what was to be learned, they did not create lessons that engaged students, or they tested before the students were ready. These are all BAD practices.
I almost got into a fight with a peer last night (who is also studying to become a teacher) over this question.
You're on a first date. You guys are hitting it off. There's a rapport. Then your date says something odd, which may make you seem him/her in a new way. Something that may make you ambivalent towards dating them, despite the fact the date is going really well. Which of these, if uttered by your date, would make you less enthusiastic about a second date? Anything you don't check, it's assumed that you could overlook the statement
2.) Have you ever lived in NYC? What neighborhood? What was your rent like? Any tips for finding a place and living there?
DK/DC: What song do you have on repeat right now?
when was your last "wtf" moment?
Would you accept a friend request from your boss/employer?
Would you send a friend request to your boss/employer?
What about your employee? Parents? Teachers/lecturers?
I am a live-in nanny/au pair. I've been with this family less than a month and the mum of the family added me on facebook last night. I accepted but put her on my restricted list so she can only see public posts (only my profile picture and cover photo). Do you think she might be offended that I haven't let her see anything?
I think she's done the same to me so it should be fine right? Or is there another setting where I can filter what she sees? (I could only work out how to make posts in my timeline visible to "only me")
Why did she add me?
I haven't posted anything particularly negative about the family or anything I wouldn't mind her seeing, but still...
I've worked for two different families. The first both parents added me after I'd left (they didn't have facebook at the time) which is fine. They regularly comment on my posts, bit weird but no worries. The second the mum was always on facebook but she never mentioned adding me. That was definitely more of an employer/employee relationship so probably for the best.
I do have my parents on facebook, but no teachers. (Sad story: there were 3 people in total in my German class at school. My teacher added the other 2 girls after we left school. Guess who she didn't like?)
For me, it's my inability to find part-time employment and stressing about funding for university next year.
Do you have a good boss now?
Have you ever had a really terrible one?
Do you enjoy where you work and what you do?
My father is insistent that I talk to the woman who was my supervisor during my internship and ask her to get me an interview spot. I am not sure of their process for hiring, but I feel hesitant for doing this. I've never had to go through this before, and I am a bit introverted, but would this be okay to do? My supervisor for my internship was in a different department than the job I have applied for, but it's a small enough nonprofit where they are basically all connected. I also already asked my supervisor to put in a good word for me a few weeks ago and she said no worries, so I don't want to be too much.
I do REALLY want this job, so I don't want to appear desperate or inappropriate.
What would be the right thing to do here?
Speaking of cookies, what kind should I make for my long distance SO for Valentine's day? They should be able to hold up in the mail for a couple of days. I was thinking red velvet chocolate chip but I am open to any ideas.
It didn't turn out as bright as I wanted. The roots are good but everything else is a liiittle dark. If I buy another box in a day or two and leave it on a little longer to brighten it up, would that be okay on my hair? The box called for 25-30 minutes and I was thinking of leaving it on for 45 minutes to an hour.
2. What are some books you read for school (elementary or otherwise) that you really enjoyed?
My eldest half sister sent a really snarky message back, saying 3 nights wasn't long enough for her to take a vacation. Like a "yeah right, you're dumb" message.
My feelings are hurt, because I thought of this for both of my sisters and thought it would be a good way to see one another (we live all across the US).
So I'm annoyed, and pissed. and I was suppose to go visit the angry sister next month, but now I don't want to. Am I being selfish or immature? Like, if you can't fly 6 hours for a free trip, why should I fly 5 hours to come visit you for two days?
