So, me and my friend are both 18-year-old girls and we are both thin. We want to work out to keep our heart and body healthy. We have access to a small gym with treadmills, stairmasters, weights, etc. Here are some of our questions for starting a workout plan:
How many times a week should we work out?
How long should the workouts last?
Should we focus on certain aspects on certain days (i.e. cardio one day, weights another)?

I am trying to decide if I should take my Government AP test this year or not.
Last year I made high grades in English III (95+) and made a 5 on the AP test. This year I am making not so awesome grades in Government (80-85). If I take the AP Gov test and pass it, will my college factor those 80-somethings into my GPA for my freshman year of college? I am planning for medical school so I do not want to start off college with a B going into my GPA. Does it just give me credit without affecting my GPA? Thanks.1 AnswerHigher Education (University +)9 years ago
I'm 18 and I've just started getting into the fantasy/adventure genre! I did read some fantasy when I was younger, but it was always aimed at young adults and I'm looking for something aimed at a higher age group with more sophisticated plot/writing. To be honest, I've been playing a lot of Skyrim and it has got me into the fantasy mood. I love the magic, the swordsmanship, the snowy mountains and sprawling forests, the thievery, and of course the dragons (HOWEVER, I don't need every suggestion to have dragons in them, please). So, does anyone know of any good fantasy series for adults (or well-written young adult if they're THAT good) that would fulfill my desire for fantasy/adventure reading? :) Thanks!5 AnswersBooks & Authors9 years ago
I am getting general anesthesia for my wisdom teeth surgery tomorrow (all 4 being removed). I last ate around 8 pm and I'm done eating/drinking until my surgery at 8 am tomorrow. I'll be under for about 45 minutes to an hour. Will I get sick or maybe just nauseous? Here's hoping for the best!7 AnswersDental9 years ago
When I was young, about 7 or 8, I had my tonsils removed and they gave me codeine. It made me very sick and after a few days they switched me to hydrocodone and I was fine. Now I am 18 and getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow. Because of my history, they have prescribed me vicodin and gave me a prescription for promethazine for nausea as well. Should I be ok if the hydrocodone didn't make me sick last time? How effective is the anti-nausea medicine? It's funny, but I don't worry about pain or swelling. I only worry about throwing up!2 AnswersPain & Pain Management9 years ago
I am very excited for Skyrim, but at the same time I'm hesitant to put down the money. It looks beautiful, sound is amazing, quests look fun; everything seems to have been improved greatly. However, Oblivion was my first experience with The Elder Scrolls series and I found it a bit boring. I've heard Morrowind was better so I'll be trying that out in the next few days. I'm just wondering if I should put down the $60 for Skyrim just to find it boring like Oblivion. To be clear, I LOVE the Fallout series, so it's not a problem with the genre so much as Oblivion itself kind of dragged on, whether it was boring NPCs, boring quests, or boring scenery (except for the Dark Brotherhood quests, which were enjoyable!). What do you think? Should I give Skyrim a chance?6 AnswersVideo & Online Games9 years ago
I'm stuck between these two schools at the moment! I am National Merit Semifinalist (most likely will be Finalist since 15k out of 16k make it and from what I have learned only disciplinary problems, failure to take the SAT, poor grades through out school, etc. keep people from advancing and I have none of those).
UTD: Offering me full ride + 5k stipend a year. I am also applying for a joint program with UT Southwestern that, if I am accepted, would allow me to complete college and medical school in 7, possibly 6 years (depending on amount of summer course I take and all that jazz).
A&M: Offering not quite full ride. I'd have to pay out of pocket a bit for this one with loans.
I am interested in pre-med, probably a Biology major. I don't care for the "college experience" of parties, Greek life, big sporting events, etc. Dallas would be enough of a nightlife for me if I went to UTD since Richardson isn't too far away. I know A&M is more "prestigious" probably but I'm not sure it's right for what I want. I want to know if anyone has any arguments for A&M besides it having a more typical college experience and being bigger.3 AnswersHigher Education (University +)9 years ago
I was just wondering if any race (Dunmer, Imperial, etc.) can use Dragon Shouts or if it is specific to the Nords? I know your character is "dragon born" no matter what your race which leads me to believe any race can use them, but I just wanted to make sure :)

I am going on a trip tomorrow and we'll be driving for about 10-11 hours. I usually do okay the first 5 or 6 hours but then I start getting very nauseous and feel sick. I take Dramamine but it doesn't always help. This time I'm taking some ginger ale with me. I'm going to be sitting in the back seat with two other people. Should I sit in the middle or by the window?

I just joined duelingnetwork last night and I made three decks. However, I can only use the first two I made. There is not an option to use the third. Also, when I deleted one of the top two, my third still could not be used so I was stuck with only the first one. Even when I set the third as my default deck it doesn't work. Help please?

Yesterday I woke up at 10, felt really bad and tired, and went back to sleep. i ended up waking up again at about 3, which surprised me because i'd already gotten a good 8 or so hours of sleep before. because I slept through the day, I only ate one meal, dinner, and then went to sleep about 1. i woke up this morning at 9 with horrible sharp pains in my stomach. it's not exactly hunger or nausea, and I'm not sure what to do. i'm afraid to eat in case it makes it worse but maybe i need to eat? all help is appreciated!

Hi, I had an interview with a hiring manager and I might have an orientation in two weeks. I was just wondering how much entry level positions get paid, what the entry level positions are, and how it is to work at the Rainforest cafe?
I am 17 but they said they hire starting at 17 around here and that I'd get one of a few different entry level jobs (I think they mentioned cashier at the gift shop place out front, waitress, etc.)

Two days ago I got a horrible headache, and I don't have headaches ever. It lasted a few hours but eventually went away. Yesterday I woke up with a fever and nausea. Today I'm feeling exactly the same, not better at all. I haven't thrown up or anything, but I've felt close to it many times since yesterday. Am I just fighting off the flu?
If so, what are some of your suggestions when it comes to food/drinks? I need to eat, but I'm too afraid of getting sick to do so (although I did force down some soup and crackers earlier).2 AnswersOther - Health1 decade ago
