  • What are the dangers of inhaling body spray?

    Yesterday morning I emptied a 3/4 full can of axe body apray in the corner of my room. Don't ask. I'm an idiof who thought it would be a good replacement for fabreez.

    Anyway, this was over 40 hours ago and my entire room STILL has a very STRONG smell of axe that is making it difficult to breathe. I tried to lay down to go to sleep, but even with three windows open the smell is making me light headed.

    On top of that, I just read about how inhaling this stuff can lead to asphyxiation and cardiac arrest.

    How long until its safe to sleep in my room again? I'm EXAUSTED and all I want to do is go to bed without having to worry about dying of hypoxia in my sleep :(

    Thanks...

  • Will I have to drop out of college?

    I registered for classes a bit late, so I'm fairly ignorant to a lot of this. I was under the impression (because an email from my college told me so) that tuition for Fall 2014 classes wouldn't be due until June of 2015. I was planning on applying for financial aid within the coming weeks and getting everything taken care of.

    This morning however, I got an email from my school saying that my Fall 2014 bill would be due on August 22, 2014. TOMORROW. It said that if it was not paid in full I would be dropped for non-payment.

    When is tuition usually due? There's no possible way I'm going to be able to pay thousands of dollars by next month, let alone by tomorrow. I work a minimum wage part time job and make nothing. Unless I can somehow get financial aid taken care of and get everything paid for, I'm going to have to drop out and reapply for the Spring, which, as life often gets in the way, may not ever happen.

  • Does this college schedule sound manageable?

    I'm still considering moving things around, but here is what I have so far...

    Mondays & Wednesdays - 10:30am to 11:50pm + 1:00pm to 2;20pm.

    Tuesdays & Thursdays - 11:00am to 12:20pm + 12:30pm to 2:50pm.

    Will this leave me enough time to work sufficient hours and socialize?

    One option I'm also considering is eliminating the first class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, replacing it with one class on Monday evenings from 6:00 to 9:00.

    Thanks.

  • Frequent nose bleeds in warm weather?

    Every Summer as far back as I can remember I've suffered from fairly severe, frequent nosebleeds. They begin once the weather warms up (I live in New York) and they stop completely once Autumn arrives. If the temperature is above lets say 75-80 degrees (F) my nose will bleed, but when its cooler than that they cease. Why is this?

    When they do happen, my nose will bleed at the slightest touch. Anything can trigger it. If I blow my nose, if I touch the outside of my nostril, if I sneeze too hard. Anything can set it off. I've even had them in my sleep and woken up with dried blood all over my face, arms, pillows and sheets. It's ridiculous sometimes. I just had one in the shower and my nose was leaking excessively for about 10 minutes straight.

    What causes these heavy, annoying nosebleeds that I only suffer from in the Summer? How can I stop it?

  • Why won't anyone hire me?

    I've applied to over a dozen jobs this past month and a half, desperately trying to find employment, but nobody will even give me a chance. I've had one job interview over the phone, but apparently I failed that basic screening miserably as they have not called me back or even given me the consideration of a "no thank you" email. This is incredibly frustrating.

    Some of the places I've applied to include fast food restaurants, local pizzerias, grocery stores, department stores, museums, hotels and fitness clubs. All of which were entry level positions that require no experience and would (and do) hire high school kids. Half of these places sent me automatic rejection letters within a few days of receiving my application, the rest ignored me other than a restaurant and a grocery store.

    Now, I know some employees who work at the places I've applied to. There are plenty of people with poor social skills, drug addicts, convicted felons, thieves and extremely unqualified/inexperienced people working for these places I've applied to.

    What is wrong with me?

    My record is as clean as a whistle. I haven't had a single run in with the law over the course of my lifetime and any background check would turn up empty. I neither currently use, nor have I ever used any illegal drugs and would pass any test with flying colors. My online presence has absolutely nothing condemning, I don't post anything on facebook other than a picture once a year. My GPA and standing...

  • iPod Touch 5g won't charge, turn on or respond AT ALL. What can I do?

    This is incredibly frustrating. My one and a half year old iPod Touch 5th generation died on me two nights ago and I haven't been able to get it to work at all since. It has addmittedly been having problems recently, but nothing that would've told me it was going to completely stop working. Just a little background, a few months back my original lightning charger broke, so I went out and bought a new one which lasted for a month before it too broke. The third one I bought worked, but I had to hold the cord a certain way in order to get a charge. This is the one I currently have.

    Now the other night when my iPod died, I plugged it in as I normally would. I got the red battery signal telling me to plug it in. Clearly it wasn't recognizing the charger anymore. I played with it to try to get it to work, but nothing did. At one point I thought I had it, but the red battery signal kept flashing every few seconds. I left the room for maybe ten minutes and when I got back the screen was black. I pressed the home button. Nothing. I pressed the on/lock button. Nothing. I tried to hard reset the ipod both plugged in and on its own. Nothing. The screen just stays black as if it is turned off.

    I contacted Apple support with this the night it happened and was told to try resetting it, to put it into recovery mode and to try syncing it with iTunes. Once again, nothing worked and the screen just stayed black.

  • Who to list as a personal reference on a job application?

    I have no previous job experience whatsoever and I need at least one personal reference on my application to a fast food chain. Family members are out of the question of course, but what about friends? I can't think of anyone else to list as I've never been a part of a job, team, I've never volunteered or done much anything.

  • GF wants to go clubbing. What to think?

    Tonight my girlfriend told me that she made plans with her friend to go to the club next weekend. Of course she's not my slave so I'm not going to tell her she can't do it, but deep down I REALLY don't want her to go. I don't know what to expect. On one hand, she's a very attractive girl who is hit on almost DAILY just walking down the street or going into work. She would undoubtedly be virtually HARASSED at a club. She is not the type to cheat, yet I still don't like the idea of this. Guys can be aggressive and I've told her in the past I didn't love the idea of her going.

    Now I've never been to a club. I have no interest. I'm not a party guy. She doesn't party either, but she said she "wants to just go out and have fun with her friends" and "take he mind off of everything." What should I think? What goes on at clubs other than the typical drinking, dancing, socializing?

    This would be the fourth time she's made plans to go, the others all fell through, which I was secretly very happy about. When she told me tonight I didn't say much, just that I hope she has fun, although I have a feeling that by the time she goes next week I'm going to resent it enough that my attitude could cause a fight, which I don't want....

    Should I be okay with this?

  • Angry bus driver wouldn't let me ride the bus for NO REASON. Should I complain?

    Today I was waiting for the bus to simply go to the mall, which being in a suburban area required a transfer. For the day, this would normally cost me $4, so I decided a $3 all day pass would be a good idea. Once the bus arrived I was the third passenger out of five to get on. I informed the driver respectfully that I was going to get an all day pass, which is what you're supposed to do, so they can hit a button on their machine that allows you to purchase it on board. I literally said and did nothing else.

    His response without hesitation was "no, buy it on the next bus." Which he followed with "get off the bus." When I asked why I had to get off the bus he kept repeating himself telling me "I'm not going to sell you one" and to get off the bus. Feeling offended, I stood my ground and refused to comply with his requests as I thought they were completely unjustified. At this point the two passengers behind me became irritated as they had been held up by the conflict, so I allowed them to get on, but still refused to get off of the bus myself. A little more arguing back and forth finally led to him giving up. He told me to "stand behind the line" to sit down. I asked him if he wanted my money and he snapped back "NO."

    Was I in the wrong here? Should I report it to the bus company?

    Normally I would count my losses and wait another 20 minutes for the next bus to arrive, but today it was raining very hard and I had somewhere to be at a specific time and had people counting on me to be there. I refused to be denied service for no reason

  • My girlfriend and I BOTH had dreams that she cheated last night. What does this mean?

    Today she told me that last night she had a dream of her meeting, and later having sex with a celebrity.

    Last night I had a dream that we were sitting together when a large, muscular guy (that looked like Tarzan) came and hugged her then kissed her on the lips. I then punched him in the face...

  • Girlfriend (was) mad at me, now I feel HORRIBLE! Am I in the wrong? What can I do?

    Earlier yesterday I was waiting at the bus stop with my girlfriend before she went to work. We were talking, hugging, kissing, you know, the normal. I was facing the street while she was turned towards me. As we were doing this, at one point I noticed a car stopped at a red light with a girl staring at me from the passenger seat smiling. At first I ignored her and went back to my girlfriend, but as I looked back she started smiling even more and started waving to me. While she did look familiar (maybe from my high school?), I only awkwardly gave her a half wave back because I had no idea who it was. When I told my girlfriend what happened she became livid and did not want to talk to me anymore. I could even see tears in her eyes. I tried asking what was wrong, although the little that she said indicated that she thought this girl who waved to me was someone I knew well and that my being distracted by this girl was a sign of something else. We did talk briefly before she left and we still kissed as she got on the bus, but everything felt very bad the rest of the day.

    When she got home last night we talked about it and she explained that it was because in past relationships she was cheated on, and each time it began in a similar manner with her boyfriends having girls they claimed they didn't know saying hi (or otherwise acting overly friendly to) to them on the street, only to later find out that these girls were the ones they were involved with. I told her I would never do anything like this, that I loved her and didn't know how she could ever think I would be like that, but it is clear that our relationship had been seriously hurt. By a girl waving at me. I guess because I waved back she became suspicious. She explained to me that "it just doesn't add up." She doesn't understand why a girl I didn't know would smile and wave to me. She told me that by waving back, even if I don't know her, I'm giving another woman a hint that I'm attracted to her. She even questioned my reaction telling me that "it's funny how people act when they feel like they're about to lose someone." I told her that I had nothing to hide and even offered my phone up for her to look through. All I wanted to do was prove to her that everything was ok. She didn't care.

    This is extremely frustrating to me because now I feel like the trust we have built over the past 7+ months is falling apart, or potentially could. I absolutely have never in my life cheated on any girl I've been with, let alone my current girlfriend, someone who I love more than anyone else on this planet. Someone I am deeply committed to. Someone I have serious plans to spend my future with. I would never even think of doing anything to hurt her, and it seriously hurt me to see her react in this manner to me.

    Of course I do understand where she's coming from because of her past...

    Last night I felt sick to my stomach. I could barely sleep. I'm incredibly upset that this could affect us, a couple who has had a nearly perfect relationship up until now. The love we've shared since we've been together is something I've truly never seen between anyone before. How can this happen?

    This morning she said that she slept on everything and feels fine now. She said she's okay with what happened and still loves me etc. etc. etc. She is acting completely normal again for the most part, but to me it's still of great concern. I can't get over the fact that a girl waving to me who I honestly did not know (or if I did, did not recognize) was enough to cause a disturbance in our relationship. Perhaps I shouldn't have acknowledged another woman while kissing my girlfriend, but it was my initial reaction to be polite, albeit awkwardly. On one hand I hate myself for handling the situation like I did, it probably did come across as suspicious behavior. On the other hand I don't feel like I did anything wrong. I feel like I simply tripped over an emotional landmine left behind by my girlfriend's ex-boyfriends who treated her like garbage. I feel like we let something so minor impact us so greatly and I resent that.

    Was I in the wrong? What can I possibly do to make it up to her? I feel horrible right now, probably worse than she ever did. No, not probably. I easily feel a MILLION times worse than she did.

    What can I do?

  • I feel like I'm lost in life. How can I get started on a path to success?

    I truly don't know where to begin. In terms of my school, career and real life, adult responsibilities, I'm lagging FAR behind my peers, which is upsetting to me. On the one hand I would love to attend an institute for higher education, likely a local community college, but my grades in high school are currently very mediocre.

    I'm a senior in high school right now and I have about a 1.9 GPA for the year, and a 3.0 GPA for all of high school. I'm at a point where I dislike every moment of attending school. I wake up very angry that I have to go to a building where I feel out of place. I stayed home from school today and feel like I've learned more by just researching topics I enjoy online than school has taught me this entire year. Each day I sluggishly endure a full day of classes I have little to no interest in (with the exception of history), and I go home feeling like I wasted my entire day on nonsense. I also feel like a grown man who is far removed from the high school level and is surrounded by little kids, yet at the same time, a loser who doesn't even belong in school. I don't care about my grades at all anymore and all I'm looking forward to is graduating...

    Looking towards college, I don't know what to do. I thought about pursuing a business degree (a subject I had a fairly solid understanding in during high school), but for what? I honestly do not want to go to college because I feel like what I'm going through right now is just going to carry over. I can't see my attitude on educating improving just because I move up to the next level. Furthermore, while I do believe I'm intelligent enough to attend a university, I don't think I'm "college material" in the sense that I would succeed in the system that is higher education in America. I have literally no serious career interests. I'm not sure I could even last a semester...

    That being said, I fear that I'm doomed to live a life working unskilled labor. Perhaps working my way up from the bottom in a reputable company such as Target, Home Depot, McDonalds etc. could be a viable option. I do not want to do that though. My father worked 3 jobs of janitorial work for most of my childhood. I'd like to be the apple that falls far from that tree.

    On top of that, I have ZERO work experience right now at almost 18 years old. I cannot imagine what employers would want to hire someone like me. Someone with a blank resume, no talents, no skills to offer, no transportation (I take the bus everywhere, no license or even a permit), poor people skills. I don't know what to do or where to begin.

  • Is it wrong that I REALLY don't want my girlfriend to drink?

    I don't want to be a controlling boyfriend. In fact, I would never in a million years tell her what to do, but I just can't be content with her getting drunk and partying. At the beginning of our relationship she was in college and did party just about every weekend. She got drunk, and as much as I liked her, it REALLY turned me off. I've never been attracted to that lifestyle. Some might call me boring, but it just doesn't appeal to me. All of my friends smoke weed, get blackout drunk and some are even addicts, but those are my friends. I have insanely high standards with the woman I want to bring into my life and possibly be with for the rest of it.

    Now my girlfriend and I have a great relationship. Literally zero problems in the time we've been together. We have even begun to make plans for our future such as living together and the possibility of taking other more serious steps together. We're in love. The only complaint I have is the fact that she enjoys partying. When she was in college I got to see her in her drunk state and I hated it. I loved the woman, but hated what alcohol did to her. I felt like she had a hard time controlling herself and went from this amazing, beautiful, intelligent girl to a sloppy mess. She never even came close to cheating on me or anything like that, I just didn't like what I saw. After she came home she agreed to stop drinking for me, which I felt guilty about but deep down this made me very happy.

    Unfortunately, twice now she has said that she wishes she could go out again and drink with her friends. I told her that I'm not going to stop her from doing anything she wants to do, however she always tells me that she's not going to because she knows I don't like it.

    Am I wrong for this?
