My friend and I were going to go to New Orleans next weekend but the hotel chain we work at couldn't give us a room at our employee discount, so we're going to Dallas instead.
If you've visited the Dallas-Fort Worth area, what are some fun things to do/see?
If you're from the DFW area, can you list some of your favourite local things?
I was really looking forward to eating a bunch of seafood in NOLA, so what are some good restaurants to get fresh, tasty sea critters?
So I've just been offered a job (yay!!). Downside(?): it doesn't start for another two to three months. I have a casual job (mostly weekends) in the industry, where I get to practice/experience things/keep my skills sharpish, and a sporadic gig volunteering whenever I feel like it in a semi-related field (neither of these are huge commitments, the job is pretty flexible about giving me time off whenever). I graduated a few months ago and I've basically been hanging around and having various adventures, but now I know that I will for sure have another few months off. I have some money saved up.
TQC, what would you do if you suddenly had two or three months of free time? Is there anything you would love to achieve/do if you only had the time? What should I do with my life?
Interview question again:
For this job in NoVa (3.5 hours from where I live), I've already participated in a phone screening and a phone interview. The phone interview was to take the place of the in-person interview since I live so far away and my work schedule would not allow me to travel at that time. I had the phone interview on Friday. Today, I got an E-mail from the recruiter asking if I could meet for an in-person interview at some point, so I said I could go up Sunday. It's going to be at a Panera Bread, not at the office like I expected, and it'll be for lunch.
So what should I expect from this interview? Of course I know to still dress up, but I've never been on a lunch interview before. I wasn't aware that there would be two interviews (after my first interview they said "ok we'll be in touch," I assumed to let me know if I got the position or not). I have anxiety about food, so eating in front of people I don't know, especially at a place like Panera where I don't typically eat and I'm not familiar with the menu, kills my nerves. I already have plans to look up the menu beforehand and pick what I'm going to order. Any other tips for not making a fool of myself? I'm nervous =/
I have been asked to raise money for Amnesty International.
Although I will get an income in return, I have heard a lot of criticisms of this group, as well as good, charitable work. I'm iffy of foreign aid, so...
What do you all know about this organization? Can you vouch for any of the rumored criticism? Or of its amazing, world-changing work?
hiiii tqc. i haven't posted here in awhile but i have a dilemma on my hands.
i've decided i want to break up with my boyfriend. he's in jail, has been off/on since i met him. he's been in jail since dec 3rd of 2013. he's probably gonna get 1-3 years but he hasn't been to court yet (it's on the 7th)
i'm only 19 and i don't think i want to wait around that long anymore, but he doesn't know that yet. i don't know how to tell him. he has visitations twice a week and i can write him, but i feel like writing him would be shitty.
things that are important to know: he has a temper (not violent) and he's emotional, i'm his only friend now (he had plenty but blahblah drama), he has family but they're kinda in/out of his life, he's had an extremely troubled life (bad/abusive parents) and we've always talked about our future and i thought he was the one, but i'm finding myself extremely doubting that.
i know 100% that this is what i want to do, but i'm very non-confrontational and i don't want to hurt him because he's one of the best friends i've ever had. what do i doooooo :-(
So I have managed to come down with laryngitis. I have only had it once before, which was two months ago. Last time it lasted about a week and I had to whisper constantly. I didn't have much to do so it wasn't a huge deal. This time around, I have a conference on Saturday and a job interview Monday. I NEED to have a voice for these. Especially the job interview.
I've been drinking large amounts of water/tea and gargling with salt and water. Any other tips that have worked for you? I haven't totally lost my voice yet, so I am trying to conserve it. However it has been getting worse throughout the day.
Dk/Dc: What was the last annoyance in your life?
Dear U.S TQC-ers who use NetFlix,
Can you get New Girl Seasons 2 and 3 on yours? The UK version of Netflix is rubbish.
Thank you :)
