    I am currently 20 years old, but will be 21 come the end of this month. I am legally too old to re enter high school where I live. I was kicked out of school due to tardys/absences that resulted from untreated medical conditions. I left needing only 4 credits until I could graduate (I earned 20 out of 24). I am looking to finish school and get a full diploma, NOT a GED! Are there any online programs that you know of that offer a full diploma while also completing courses on your time? I really can't have a program that is the same hours as a typical school day as I am working now. I also am interested in a job that will be a better fit for my life and it unfortunately requires a full diploma. This means a lot to me as I have busted my @ss in school my entire life only to be cut off for medical issues that I did not have the resources to treat. It was very unfortunate and unjust and I am finally getting better now so I have the physical ability to work and finish school. The specific credits that I am missing are English/language arts 12 - 1.5 credits, electives - 2 credits, arts/second language/professional tech - .5 credits. I am from Oregon in the USA if that helps. Even though I am working, I am low income with this job (hence me wanting to seek out a different one). So any low cost program suggestions are appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to read and respond :)

  • Laptop always freezes with Youtube?

    I've only ever had two laptops my entire life. This was an issue I have experienced with both but mainly with my "new" one (new to me but used in general).

    I've only ever had two laptops my entire life. This was an issue I have experienced with both but mainly with my "new" one (new to me but used in general). The whole screen will freeze and nothing can unfreeze it until I close the laptop and open it back up. Esc doesn't do anything, same with any of the other buttons. Unlike my other laptop where the audio would just keep playing or stop, on this one the audio blares into my headphones and it seems to play the same 1-2 seconds of audio over and over until I shut the laptop. It is truly bizarre. Anyway, is there a way to stop this?? I use Google Chrome by the way. That is my preferred browser. Not sure if that plays a role at all. Thanks in advance for all helpful suggestions :)

    I cannot take out my piercing. The least painful option you can give me please! It is right next to a cartilage ear piercing. The piercing is still healing which is why I cannot just take the piercing out.

  • Why are cartilage piercings so expensive?

    The place nearest me charges over $100 for a set of two cartilage piercings! Like wtf?? That's crazy expensive. Are there specific places that you can go that aren't expensive like that?? What about tattoo shops that also do piercings??

  • Which one would you choose?

    I have to decide very soon between getting a cheap camera and tripod or getting a new iPod touch. The camera would give me good photos and video. The iPod would give me good camera, video, games, apps, and music though... I want to do Youtube and which ever one I choose will the the one that I use to film my videos. What do you think??

I have 4 ear piercings (two in each lobe). 3 of the 4 seem to have a slight infection that has lasted quite a while. B. All of my piercings are several years old and are fully healed, so it's not a healing issue. C. Yes, I do seem to have an allergy to nickel, but the earrings in my ears right now, as far as I know, are not nickel. So it's not an allergy issue. D. The bottom lobe piercing on my left ear (that I've had for 10 years) keeps having this weird, semi - wet white flakey stuff that comes off when I take my earring out. It's also around the piercing site. When I scrape it off, it has a foul odor. E. The top lobe piercing on my left ear keeps putting out a similar white substance as the bottom one, but it's more thin, wet and doesn't smell at all. It comes off on the earring and the piercing site. I've had this piercing for three years. F. The top lobe piercing on my right ear puts out a sometimes white, sometimes clear substance that had no odor. It's rarely wet. It comes off on the earring but pretty much never the piercing site. I've had this piercing for 3 years. So, how do I get rid of these infections? And also, what type of infections are these?? Thank you for taking your time to read this and answer <3

Then I went to a pregnancy center a few days later and they tested my pee and it said negative. Now this was in Early August. Now that it's September I decided to test again. And I got a negative. The reason I tested again now is because I had no period in August and havent had one so far in September (I did have one that lasted all 7 days at the end of July). The period in July was my first one after being on birth control for a long time. Could I be missing periods randomly or could I be pregnant and it not be showing up on the tests?

I don't know why it never went away and I cannot think of any trauma related to it. I can sleep in the dark as long as an animal or another human is in the room with me, but if I am alone, it's not an option. I am also afraid of power outages for pretty much the same reason. Everytime we have power issues/outages, my heart races and my body shakes and I go into a mini panic. I know in the back of my mind that why I'm panicking is illogical, but my body doesn't seem to know the difference between the dark and potential death. I know it sounds stange, because it is. I just feel so helpless. I had a nightmare tonight surrounding my lights not turning on when I needed them and it really freaked me out. I just want this to stop.

    I used to dye my hair with ion colors until recently when I switched to manic panic (yes I got it done professionally, I just bought the dye myself). Two weeks ago I got a sort of streaked-dip dye put into the bottom half of my hair (sounds weird I know but it is actually really cute). I got the color ultraviolet which is a bright purple color. When first dyed it it looked more indigo and then after washing it a bunch it at looked more purple. The last two days though I have gone swimming three times in a chlorine filled pool. Every time after I got out I would take my hair out of the hair tie (it would never stay up in a bun like I put it but it would stay semi together at least) and I would rinse the pool water out in the sink or shower with cold water. Well I put my hair down today and I noticed that the "top" and "middle" of my hair where it is dyed is still purple but the ends are turning white?! Keep in mind please that I have dark brown hair so this is very easily noticeable. Also when I got the area where the dye was going to go bleached, it never turned this color. It was a bright honey blonde kind of color. I am assuming a little that it is because my hair was in the water more on the ends (like I said with my bun coming undone). But I mean I submerged my head a ton and the rest isn't looking very faded at all, just those pesky whitening ends. Idk what to do because I want to keep swimming but I also don't want janky looking hair when I'm not swimming. Ideas?

    My male bird is about 6 years old and has recently been acting weird. He is sitting in the corner of his cage facing the wall and sleeping there almost all day. This has been happening for a few days now. He preens and sleeps and then occasionally eats and drinks. I let him roam free in my room so usually he is on my dresser or on his "tower" (a mesh closet hang thing that I attached to the ceiling so he can go high up if he wants). When he sleeps he usually goes up onto his perch but he has been staying in the bottom for the most part. He is the love of my life and my world and I am scared that something is very wrong. I am also very low income so I worry that I won't be able to pay for an emergency vet visit. Is there any idea of what could be causing this??
