  • I think I might have ADD/ADHD?

    I'm not sure though. Basically throughout HS I would daydream in most of my classes, and the only way I could stop daydreaming was if I was moving a lot. My grades were pretty poor because I barely studied and got bored easily. I also worry about things obsessively and got stressed out to the point of panic attacks, I'm not sure if it's related or not. I'm also really creative, but struggle when something requires a lot of repetition in order to do well.

    I start projects but never finish them, and plan things out extensively before scrapping the plans and starting up another master plan I probably won't follow through on.

    Anyway, I just finished my first year of college with bad grades again, and I'm thinking about going to the doctor, I mean, does it sound like I might have it? Other people think I'm just being lazy, it doesn't feel like I am though..

    Please help =(

  • I like physics but not math?

    Hopefully this makes sense, I've found I only enjoy math and do well in it when I do it in a physics class, but not in chemistry or biology. Currently I'm majoring in biology and I think I'm making a mistake, I've always felt like I was bad at math, but now I'm wondering if it's just that I never had the chance to apply it in a way that's interesting.

    Has anyone else experienced this? Should I switch my major?

  • Professors treat me differently?

    I'm in my first year of college and all of my professors seem to know my name quickly, stare at me (well, perhaps stare wouldn't be the right word - they make a lot of eye contact), and seem really happy to see me/always say hi, even if it's a class of 400 people or so. Other students don't treat me differently though, just out of curiosity, has this happened to anyone else?

  • How do you stop thinking about a professor?

    I can't seem to stop thinking about one of my professors, I've never been this obsessed about anyone before, it's pathetic, and inappropriate. If only I could convince the irrational part of my brain of that, because rationally, I know it's unrealistic and absurd to be thinking about a professor like this...argh.

  • Questions to ask college advisor?

    So I have to go meet with my advisor for the first time, and I am nervous as hell, in the email it said I should come prepared with questions/ideas for discussion topics. The problem is that I really don't have any questions, I just want to register my classes. But I have to meet with the advisor.

    I could really use some help in coming up with questions, I'm going to major in biology.

  • Is vet school harder than college?

    As in, is it more difficult than undergrad classes and, if so, in what way? (Is the material really hard or is it the sheer amount of it?)

  • What does this James Madison quote mean?

    "We may define a republic to be ... a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people, and is administered by persons holding their offices during pleasure for a limited period, or during good behavior. It is essential to such a government that it be derived from the great body of the society, not from an inconsiderable proportion or a favored class of it; otherwise a handful of tyrannical nobles, exercising their oppressions by a delegation of their powers, might aspire to the rank of republicans and claim for their government the honorable title of republic."

    I just don't get the last part and didn't just want to quote it out of context.

  • How to be more mature?

    I've beginning to realize that people don't really take me seriously, I like to have fun and am very curious about..well, everything, people seem to see this as extremely childish, and, therefore, treat me like a child. I can be mature, it's just I have to deal with so much serious crap at home that when I'm around friends the last thing I want to do is take on more of it.

    ..except then none of my friends take me seriously. Some of them even think they have the right to go through my stuff or take things from me, my more "mature" friends don't have to deal with this, and I think it's very disrespectful. I feel like I have to fight to get their attention sometimes.

    So this is the deal, I'm going to act like it's me and not just them being jerks, do you guys have any tips for acting more mature? I turn 18 next month.

  • Has your doctor ever told you this when you had the flu?

    He told me to let my temperature go over 102 and not to take medicine for it because it keeps the virus from reproducing, I've never had a doctor tell me that before :/

  • My religious science teacher's hybrid theory?

    I have a physics teacher that is also a geologist, he thinks that the earth is, indeed, 4.5 billion years old, but that time didn't begin until 6,000 years ago.

  • Why are most animal hospitals small?

    I'm not asking this to be rude, it's just that I've noticed that most human hospitals are these massive multi-story buildings, whereas most animal hospitals are one story, and appear relatively small.

    I understand that most vets open their own practice, but is there any where they actually get together and have all the vets with all their specialties in one building? (I want to be a vet and work on a team on emergency cases)

  • A guy asked me why I wore makeup?

    He said I didn't need makeup, and I didn't even know what to say, I have acne and it makes me really self-conscious, people usually can't tell I'm wearing it because it's not thick or anything, but I guess I overdid it this time.

    What should I say if he asks again? It was just a really uncomfortable question for me to answer for some reason :/
