I'm Sarah, I'm 21 years old. I live in South Florida. My favorite catagories are Beauty & Style, Family & Relationships, and Ice Skating. I'm a figure skater and I currently attend FAU.
I'm going to a Sunday afternoon wedding. I already own this dress and I question if it's too close to white. It's a peach/ivory color in person with the gold leopard print. General opinions please? Consider the fact that I would wear a jewel toned sweater or something with it.13 AnswersWeddings9 years ago
I'm going to a Sunday afternoon wedding in April. It is in south Florida at a hotel on the water. I found a dress today that I initially thought would be perfect. It is a knee length dress with a beautiful, vintage silhouette. The color is a very very pale peach (bordering on ivory) with subtle gold leopard print in the material. The dress isn't "bride" looking at all... but after thinking about it, I wonder if the light color is too close to white to be appropriate.
Is very very pale peach with subtle gold print all through the fabric ok to wear to a wedding?4 AnswersFashion & Accessories9 years ago
I need new skates, but I don't have the money to buy the newer models. I've found discontinued, older models of the ones I want and they are significantly cheaper than the newer models. Has anyone ever purchased these older model boots? Is there a noticible difference in fit, weight, etc?4 AnswersIce Skating1 decade ago
I am going for an interview this weekend about a babysitting job. An hourly wage hasn't been specified yet, so I'm looking to see what others think is a fair wage. This family lives in Boca Raton, and has 4 kids ranging from ages 4-10. I would be watching them in the afternoon for a 4 hour block 2-3 times per week. Also, I am 23 years old and I am working toward a master's degree.
One person told me 25-30/hr sounds fair. Someone else told me that's way too much. Please help.6 AnswersOther - Pregnancy & Parenting1 decade ago
I found a dress from Express that I fell in love with, but it was too expensive. I found the same dress on e-bay recently because they no longer sell it in the stores. I'm a triangle shape (meaning my shoulders are narrower than my hips) so I don't know if I should get a size small or medium.
Does anyone know if their dresses tend to be tighter or looser through the hips? Also do they run big or small?2 AnswersFashion & Accessories1 decade ago
I've been in a committed relationship with the same guy for 3.5 years. We met when we started college, so we've been together since we were 19 and are now 22. I've dated other guys and have had other relationships, but he hasn't. I'm his first girlfriend, first sexual partner, etc. We're at a point where, if we were older with more life experience, we would probably get married, but we're not older. I have no problem with viewing this relationship with the prospect of eventually getting married, but it scares the heck out of him. Part of him wants to live like a typical college guy and date and sleep with other girls, but the other part doesn't want to risk screwing up our relationship. He doesn't want to hurt me or lose me, but he's experiencing such a conflict that his fears are inhibiting him from being as emotionally open as he was in the beginning. This emotional disconnect has taken a toll on me and our sexual relationship. I need to feel the emotional connection in order to want to have sex. It's also been causing such a rift between us that I'm so desperate to find a solution.
I've been considering the option of us taking a break, but our living situation doesn't really make that possible. So I've been thinking of possibly opening up our relationship. I don't know exactly how it would work for us, but it seems like it might be an option worth visiting. I'm very attached to my boyfriend, and i don't know right now if I'd be capable of handling him sleeping with other people, but I think it's something I need to do for him. Missing out on such experiences seems to be the cause of so many quarter/mid-life crisis's.
If anyone has experience with open relationships or knows anyone who has taken on an open relationship, I would appreciate opinions and advice. Thank you.4 AnswersOther - Family & Relationships1 decade ago
I just wanted to get some other opinions on this subject. Does anyone else not see the point of celebrating wedding anniversaries that aren't your own? My grandfather called me today and left a message saying it was his and my grandmothers 60th anniversary. The tone of his voice sounded like he expected me to congratulate him, but to do so seemed a bit ridiculous to me. I've also noticed that in my boyfriends family, his mother always gives an anniversary card to her parents and threw them a party for their 50th. This seems ridiculous to me. In my mind, anniversaries should only be celebrated by those actually in the relationship. What are your opinions?12 AnswersMarriage & Divorce1 decade ago
I just had my skates rebuilt and they are much better and safer to skate in now, but I find that they are so tight that my toes are going numb. Is this something that will go away as I re-break them in? I can't really loosen them up anymore or my ankle rolls out in landings.
Also, how long does a rebuilt skate generally last?2 AnswersIce Skating1 decade ago
Has anyone found a deodorant that has a great smell that lasts for many hours? My current deodorant is Degree, which is great for preventing sweat, but the smell doesn't last very long. I want something that will continue to smell great for most of the day.
Also, please don't suggest Secret, that deodorant has never worked on me.13 AnswersOther - Skin & Body1 decade ago
Does a higher quality blade make jumping and spinning easier? I'm about to be starting doubles and I'm working on higher level spins. My blades are about $40 total, so they're pretty basic. Would a pair that cost about $100 help my skating or is the quality of skating rest more in the skater than the blade?6 AnswersIce Skating1 decade ago
My skates are giving out on a daily basis. I can see new creases forming by the ankles as well as new scuffs everywhere. I mentioned this to my coach and she said I can take them to a shoe repair place and they can reinforce them with more leather. I think they proably insert it into the boot somehow. This method will cost $50 opposed to the $600+ that new skates will cost.
I was just wondering if anyone has had this done to their skates?
How long does it last?
Is it even worth it because I'm pretty sure I'm in need of a stiffer, better model as well as a more advanced blade?2 AnswersIce Skating1 decade ago
I'm 21 years old and about 136 lbs, and I would like to lose about 8-10 lbs. I've gone one healthy diets where I exercise regularly and eat very healthy to the point where I'm cutting 500 calories per day between burned calories and cut calories. This type of diet works and I do lose weight very very slowly, but after a couple of weeks I find that I am so hungry that I just can't do it anymore and have to eat more calories. It's not that I don't have weight to lose... I have my fat pouch on my stomach as well as love handles. My arms are thicker than I would like them to be. My legs and butt can always afford to be thinned down as well.
It doesn't help to add more exercise because I've always been a very fit person. I figure skate about 10 hours a week and go through spurts of lots of extra cardio and stregnth training.
Is there any suggestions you can give me to help lose the weight?4 AnswersDiet & Fitness1 decade ago
I want to get a pet, but I'm not exactly in the position to get a high maintainence animal like a dog, and my boyfriend (who I live with) is allergic to cats. I've had cats my whole life and I think they are great pets. I've also heard that rabbits are very similar pets to cats. I just wanted to get some opinions from people who have owned both cats and rabbits...
Will I be extremily disappointed because a rabbit is actually no where near as affectionate as a cat?
Are rabbits friendly and sweet?
Is there a good chance I would get bored with having a rabbit?

I posted this question a little while ago, but the answers I got weren't very helpful. I recently started figure skating again and I get pain in my knee on my landing leg from doing the jumps. The pain is usually from the middle part of my knee and sort of radiates upward. Nothing appears to be swollen, but after I've done a few jumps and in the hours after I skate my knee will hurt. I think it's a similar pain to the kind that runners get in their knees due to the shock. Someone told me that jump roping is a good way to help your knees, but I haven't tried it. I also ice my knee after I skate, which helps a little. If anyone has experienced something similar to this or has any ideas for how to help it, please let me know.2 AnswersOther - Sports1 decade ago
I've always had the most problems with my salchow. I can't seem to ever be able to get the nice hook in the ice from my takeoff.

I need to write a resume for a job as a swim instructor. I haven't written a resume since high school, and that resume was just for practice and to teach us what to do. Unfortunately I've forgotten the format. I'm currently in college, so if anyone could either direct me to a helpful website or give me the basic format I would really appreciate it.4 AnswersOther - Careers & Employment1 decade ago
