I've done hours upon hours of research about traveling on a budget. I'm a full-time college student with an itch for the globe-trotting lifestyle. Thus, leading to these questions:

1. Does anyone have an ISIC card?
2. Has anyone applied for a student travel scholarship?
3. Travel reccomendations?

Who do you use for website hosting? Are you happy with their service?

(I'm currently with Dreamhost, but good gravy: I cannot access my site 99% of the time.)

Don't care/not applicable: what is something that most people would think is trivial but would make you break up with somebody immediately?

EDIT: If somebody wanted to give you a $25 gift card, where would you want it to be from?

How many bags of curbside trash do you go through in a week? How many people in your home? Do you recycle?

We recycle as much as we can and we have two adults and a 3 year old in the house but I feel like we go through an obscene amount of trash....tomorrow is pick up day and we have 5 bags...FIVE BAGS??!!

We have no way to compost and a good portion of it is things like produce waste and left overs which makes me feel even worse -_-

Is it ever appropriate or good form to point out cameltoe?

Is cameltoe a mistake?
Or is it just the cost of having female anatomy coupled with tight pants?

If you had cameltoe, would you want your friend to tell you?

Tell me about cameltoe etiquette. Because I saw some a few days ago that made me gasp inside my head. It was SO distracting. Then I chastised myself for being such a child.

Travel Noob

I am going out of the country (US) for the first time this weekend. I am staying for ten days in the UK in various cities. Will be in London for probably two or three days.

Anything I might be forgetting to pack/bring?

Any must see/do things while there?

Srs/Non-Srs welcome!

Should I go to my cousin’s wedding?

I have been invited to my cousin’s wedding next month, and I’m on the fence about whether I should go…

Reasons in favor of going to the wedding:
  • My cousin is family and I feel obligated.
  • I don’t see the rest of my family (including my parents, siblings, and grandfather) very often, and this is a rare occasion when they will all be together. My grandfather is pretty old and I don’t know how much longer he’ll be around.
  • I’m not sure I will be able to make it home for the holidays, so if I go to the wedding, it might fulfill my family-visiting obligation quota for the year. Traveling will be a lot cheaper and easier now than it will be during the holidays.

Reasons for not going to the wedding:
  • It would cost over $200 and 16 hours (round trip) to travel to the wedding.
  • I hate going to weddings.
  • I have never been very close with this cousin; in fact, she sat next to me at the reception of another cousin’s wedding a few months ago and didn’t say a word to me or introduce me to her fiancé. I doubt she would notice or care about my absence or presence at her wedding.
  • If I don’t go, I’ll still send a nice gift, and as a bonus, my cousin won’t have to pay for my meal.
  • I have a job with a crazy schedule, so I can use that as an excuse for why I can’t go (even though I can most likely get out of it if necessary).
  • My parents will have a full house due to all of my siblings and their significant others staying there, plus my grandfather, and I will have to sleep on the couch if I go.

Should I go to my cousin's wedding?

Yes, suck it up and go to the wedding
No, send a gift and say you have to work that day

laundry day

When I was in college, I got a job in a little laundromat. One of my jobs was to wash, dry and fold laundry that customers dropped off. I was shocked to learn that I had been folding laundry ALL WRONG. Collapse )

How do you fold your laundry?
