I'm Jenn. I am a 22 year old American college student studying Sociology and French. I ask a lot of questions and try to answer others the best I can. I don't appreciate rude answers and thumbs down. I tried to make my yahoo avatar look as much like me as I could.
I adopted Lila when she was one year old. She lived w/ me, my parents, & our dog. She was very happy & friendly. A year after I adopted her, I moved away for 7 months & she was fine while I was gone. 3 years after her adoption I went away for 3 months & she was ok then too. We have spent time apart and she never acted strange during that time.
8 months ago I moved out of my parents house. I live an hour away but come visit once a week. Since I've moved my normally friendly & outgoing cat has started to sleep in places she never used to go, climb on places she was not allowed to (the kitchen counter, for example) & generally avoids interacting with my parents & the dog. Her meows used to be soft but now they are loud & whiny. She still eats normally but has started going to the bathroom in places other than her litter box.
I try to spend as much time with her as I can but since I live an hour away, go to school full time, & work part time, it's not easy for me to come home more than once a week. I live in a one bedroom apt. & I'm not home often. She is better off with my parents because she has more space in a 3 story home & receives more attention then I could give her if she came with me. Can someone please tell me what might be wrong with her and what I can do for her? Thank you.2 AnswersCats7 years ago
I work in the custodial department at a museum and there is an older woman in my dept. who puts forth minimum effort, stands around and talks to others most of her shift, and has me clean up a majority of the mess. She takes longer breaks than is allowed and tells my supervisor I do nothing and leave all the work for her. This is not true.
She has screwed me over multiple times, leaving nasty bathroom messes for me to clean up, and I've talked to my manager twice now about this and it still hasn't stopped. She makes up lies, gossips, and enjoys creating drama and controversy throughout our department. Although I've spoken to my manager about it, and they have had a talk with her, it still hasn't stopped. I enjoy my job but she is making it miserable. Should I give up and look for a new job or keep fighting? If I should keep fighting, what should I do?3 AnswersSingles & Dating7 years ago
Please help me! I'm desperate. I have had scabies for 10 months! I have done treatment with ivermectin 3 times and premethrin cream 3 times. Every time I do treatment I wash my clothes and sheets every single time I even touch them. I did this last month for 28 days...If I even tried on a shirt or sat on a blanket for a second it had to be washed and dried before id touch it again, and I washed everything in hot water! If it could not be washed I put them in plastic bags for 2 weeks. I have reinfected my boyfriend twice and now I can't see him until I get rid of the scabies. Ive gone to the doctors 5 times! I am becoming phobic to touch almost anything in my home anymore and beginning to withdraw from society out of fear of other people re-infecting me. This is ruining my life! Would anyone please be kind enough to tell me EXACTLY what you did!!! And links probably won't help...ive been to hundreds of websites.2 AnswersInfectious Diseases9 years ago
I realize human scabies and animal scabies are different. My cat would not have a reaction to human scabies. But I have had scabies for 10 months and have attempted treating it 6 times. Im doing everything correct! I wash everything and am pretty much a scabies expert by now. It's ruining my life and I am withdrawing from society for the fear of any person out there re-infecting me. Although my cat would not be infected by my scabies is it possible I am dropping scabies eggs on her and then when I pet her or she sleeps in my bed she drops them back on me? It's the only thing I can think of! Could this be possible?4 AnswersSkin Conditions9 years ago
I was very close with my uncle and he died when I was 9 years old. It was rough on me and I always miss him. But recently Ive started missing him more than I ever have before and thinking about him a lot. I even cried today thinking about him and have not done that since the year he died.

I'm an American and am going to be spending 2 months in France working in a restaurant. I leave in 2 weeks. I know I should bring my passport and all the required paperwork, clothes, camera, money, personal hygiene stuff, etc. But is there anything important most people forget to bring with them or do not realize it is important and leave behind when traveling to Europe?1 AnswerPacking & Preparation9 years ago
I'm not planning on starving myself, I'm just browsing for a diet that would be good for me and came across the starvation diet and it got me wondering. Every article I have read says starvation doesn't work and your body will begin to store fat and slow your metabolism. If this is true how come anorexics are so thin? Just curious.5 AnswersDiet & Fitness9 years ago
I was at a friends party last night and when I was walking back to my car at 3 am I was raped by 2 men. My boyfriend couldn't come, he was out of town and just got back today. (I know i was stupid to walk back to my car alone at that time on the college campus) I spent the entire night at the police station with detectives then the hospital for the rape exam. I'm meeting up with my boyfriend for dinner in about 15 minutes and I have to tell him what happened. Any advice? Thanks for your time8 AnswersSingles & Dating9 years ago
5 months ago my thighs started itching really bad and i scratched them like crazy and the next day I had extremely dark bruises all over. I went to a doctor and they ran a blood test and it came back normal. The itching and bruising still continues but it's worse. I look like I have been physically abused! I'm going to go to a doctor again, I just wanted to see if anyone else has had anything similar to this and can tell me what happened with them. I am a female and will be 21 soon. I'm not pregnant. I workout 5 times a week, eat healthy, and in general I'm a happy person.2 AnswersSkin Conditions9 years ago

Pompous: Characterized by excessive self-esteem or exaggerated dignity; pretentious
I'm 20 years old and attending a university. Never once have I tried to act like that. I am not arrogant or cocky. I don't try to be, at least. I'm actually nervous when I have to speak french out loud and I feel shy. In general I'd say I'm a bit of a shy person. I don't understand why she thinks this. She told a few students this during a group tutoring session I missed. What can I do to make her think differently about me? :(5 AnswersEtiquette9 years ago
I'm not sure what to expect. I am 20 years old and recently became sexually active so i just scheduled my first apt. They told me I'd have to get a pap smear and I don't even know what that is?

I have been dating a foreign exchange student from France. But...
- I don't have the time or money to date right now (he doesn't have a car, he helps pay for gas but it's not enough plus I am a full time student with 2 part time jobs)
- I don't feel a romantic connection.
Here is the hard part. He said I am the first American girl he met that knows about the French culture, language,and has actually been to France so he feels very comfortable and good with me. Plus he doesn't know a lot of people or have a lot of things to do since he doesn't have a car. He only has a few friends. I feel like he's become very attached to me. But I just can't do it. Please don't say "tell him exactly what you just said here". I know that, but I need more, something to make it less hurtful for him. I feel really bad.2 AnswersSingles & Dating10 years ago
Are there bad effects to studying serial killers & massacres? Is something wrong with me, 10 pts for B/A?
I've always been a little interested in tragedies. I DON'T support any of it. But when I first heard about Titanic I became obsessed and would spend hours researching it, along with the holocaust, Columbine, Virginia Tech, genocide in Rwanda, etc. I also like to do research on infamous killers. Once again, I have no sympathy for the killers and don't agree with anything they do and have never had a desire to be violent or do anything to anyone. I'm just wondering, since I'm so intrigued by these tragic events, is something wrong with me? Or if I continue to research them could I develop some type of anti-social or psychopathic behavior?

I asked this once but didn't get many answers.
My bf & I are in a serious long distance relationship, we even started making plans about me moving out there with him after I graduate college this year. Its been different lately. He doesn't call or text much, even when he does call...he's not the same. I know he has a job but this is exhausting. I told him I felt like I was losing him & if his feelings were changing or he met a girl to tell me, he told me not to worry & he still loved me and his feelings haven't changed. But he's still distant. If something's wrong I want him to tell me now before I become more emotionally attached and make official plans to move out there.What should I do? Thanks for your time.5 AnswersSingles & Dating10 years ago

I'm 20 years old and 5'4. I weigh 125 lbs but don't look it. It's not just my scale because every scale I step on says I'm 123-126. I have a round face & my thighs aren't model thin either. I also think my love handles (which aren't big but still there) play a part in this too. Has anyone else ever had this?! What can I do to actually look my weight and not more than it is!?
