  • People who left their boy/girlfriend for someone else; tell me your reasons?

    I'm having quite a little pity party for myself as my boyfriend recently decided another girl was more suited for him.

    I cut off all contact with him, because honestly I don't want to dig myself deeper into being hurt.

    Still, I'm curious, for those of you who have left your SO for someone new, what was your reasoning? Do you regret it? How did your SO take it?

    Either way, I hope you're all doing well and I hope none of you feel the pain I do right now.

  • How many people admit they are not over their ex?

    It seems like every single guy I've dated is not over his ex (including the current one). I admit that it takes me a while to get over my exes, but I never bring him up to my boyfriend at the time unless asked about it. So....who misses their ex and isn't afraid to admit it?

  • People who have been depressed and are now "cured"?

    For those of you who have had depression or lack of emotions, what made you want to change? What are some things that made you happy?

    For example

    Did you want to change to make your family or a significant other happy?

    Did someone finally speak to you and you realized you needed to get better?

    Did you decide you were tired of feeling helpless and decided to get help on your own?

    I'm interested in how and why people who are depressed decide to get help.

  • What is gym(class) like in college?

    I'm going to college next week and one of the Gen Ed requirements is gym(physical education). What are college gym classes like? Is it the "run run RUN run RUN Sit Up! Push up! RUNNNN!" like it was in high school or is it more "You have an hour, do some kind of physical activity."?

  • Dying roses with food coloring; tips and tricks?

    I have 3 rose bushes in my front yard and I'd really like to try dying them with food dye. I read that the most efficient color is white because it's easiest to dye so I bought a white rose bush a few days ago. I tried dying the rose that had already blossomed, but it didn't work very well(I assume because it was already "dying"). My question is exactly how hard is it to dye other colored roses? I have a bright yellow and a red that will be blossoming any day now and I'd like to try dying them blue with food dye. Will it be more effective if I leave the roses in the food dye longer or is it just a lost cause with darker colored roses?

  • Can I make a t-shirt quilt with JUST t-shirts?

    I have way too many t-shirts and I'd like to make a quilt out of them, but is there a way I can do it without any other materials or would it just look too messy?

  • Simple gift ideas for boss(es)?

    I currently work at a restaurant, but I plan to leave around June/July because I am moving 3 hours away for college. I have about 5 bosses at my restaurant and to be honest, they've all been very patient and helpful to me. I want to give (a) gift(s) to my bosses to show them my appreciation. So I have a few questions

    1. What kind of gifts could I give my bosses? Here's a few ideas I had(note that I have 2 male bosses and 3 female bosses)

    A. Flowers--

    Would it be a good idea to have them delivered?

    Should I talk to the main manager first?

    B. Gift Cards

    Where to?

    How/when should I give it to them?

    2. Should I give it to my bosses AFTER I finish the 2 week's notice so I don't look like I'm trying to bribe them?

    3. If I have something delivered to the store, should I talk to the main manager about it?

    4. I was thinking about writing each boss a little note, would a simple "Thank You" card for each be a good idea for each boss?

    I know I don't have to give them anything, but I appreciate them investing time and money into me. I've had a lot of fun at my job and I've learned a lot.

  • How hard is it to Photoshop a picture you downloaded online?

    So I recently joined this website and it strongly encourages you to have a picture that clearly shows your face. It doesn't have the option to not allow others to right click the image and save it to their computer.

    I grew up in a house where I was told to be very careful what I post online as it may come back to haunt me later in life(professional careers, potential dates, etc).

    I was wondering how hard it was to download a picture of someone's face and change it into something totally different? All I can think about is in the movie, "A Walk To Remember" where they take Jamie's face and plaster it on a model's bikini body while showing it to the whole school. Technology is obviously VERY advanced and anyone can probably get or do anything if they knew how to use the system.

    If I decide to post a picture, would it be "Safer" to post a picture full body, head tilted to the right, sitting, standing, already edited? What type of photo would be the most difficult to Photoshop?

  • Hypothesis on why Miley Cyrus has acted out/is acting out?

    It's no secret that Miley Cyrus has been a train wreck the last few years, but she's been very secretive as to what happened. I was wondering what some of your theories are.

    Mine

    1. Someone abused her early in her career. I'm unsure of what type of abuse, but I would say it could have been a Hollywood creep.

    2. Growing up the limelight is very difficult, which is why other childhood stars are now troubled young adults.

    3. It's just part of growing up. < This is my weakest theory because obviously everyone doesn't dress in a leather bodysuit at 16.

    So tell me, what do you all think?

    So I've noticed that whenever someone tells me to relax or calm down, I actually end up getting more upset. I feel like a lot of people react this way and I was wondering what the psychological reasoning behind it is?

  • What magazines have autographed posters?

    I remember reading a magazine a few years ago(M&M, J-14, Something like that) and it had posters with celebrity autographs(obviously reprint/pre-prints). I wish I had kept some of the posters now just because I could've framed the posters and had at least what the autographs looked like! Does anyone know what magazines(if any) still have autographed posters of celebrities?

  • Why do people say "hello" to you outside of school?

    Why are people more open and friendly outside of school/work? Like when a girl in your science class says hello at the grocery store or that guy in your history class says hello on Facebook? Is it because there's less people to talk to or do they feel more comfortable? What causes them to be more open/friendly and say hello to you if they hardly(never) talk to you during school hours?
