New. I partied WAYY to hard for my 21st, and suffered hardcore alcohol poisoning the next day. That was in May, and I still have a really hard time drinking. I can't do shots, and I cringe if I taste too much alcohol. This upsets me, because now that I can finally drink legally, it is nearly impossible to do. I was hoping someone here has experienced similar situations and can help. I miss drunken parties and antics. Thanks.
I am a Psychology Graduate Student at The University of Texas at Austin, and I am currently running an online study. The purpose of this phase of the study is to gather as many reasons as possible for why people might choose not to have sex at a certain time with a certain person.
The study will be running for another couple of weeks and at the end of that time we will be doing a draw for $50 for one of the participants.
Capital Insurance Agency is looking to hire a male for a part-time runner position. We are open from 8:30-5:00 Monday-Friday (usually to close at 3 on Fridays) and need someone who can work about 20 hours/week.
Job duties include processing shipping (UPS) & mail, running errands throughout town (you are paid for your gas) and other miscellaneous duties.
I'm not exactly sure on the pay...but the atmosphere is wonderful. I started working for the company (in a different position) as a part-timer and since I've graduated I've been promoted to full-time and plan to stay with the company for at least a couple of years. There really is no better place to work...very casual/laid back and there are always luncheons & 'parties' to attend...
If interested, please email Susan Concar at: firstname.lastname@example.org Tell her you saw the ad online for the part-time runner position.
My name is Maggie Koerth-Baker. I'm a reporter working with the Associated Press on a story about college dorm rooms, people's expectations about them, and what people do to make them feel more like home.
Here are some of the things I'm curious about: What your dorm came with when you moved in, what new accessory/furniture item you HAVE to have, crazy things you've done to make your dorm more livable, what your budget was and how that affected your dorm room decorating priorities, what things you thought you needed to buy...but really never used, and the things you never considered needing...but had to go buy later.
If you're interested in telling me a little more about your dorm experience or expectations, please drop me an email. You can reach me at maggie (dot) koerth (at) gmail (dot) com.
First off, if this isn't appropriate, feel free to delete it, but I thought it was relevant to this community because it's a great way to share books, especially for those of us with little money. Not too many textbooks, but great for those english classes! http://www.PaperBackSwap.com is a book swapping community. You upload nine books, and in turn get three credits for free books. You pick out of a huge listing of books from other people, and they are sent to you totally free. When someone requests one of your books, all you have to do is ship it (which, at media rate, is usually under $2), and then you get another credit for another free book. No membership fees, no selling fees, no price, it's just a site organized to assist in swapping of books. Way better than buying off Amazon.com, where even the cheapest used book is at least $4 after shipping, and you can't sell mass market paperbacks and make a profit after the seller's fees.
Trying to spread the word to everyone out there making less than they want. Take a look at SelectATutor.com. Tutors make whatever they want tutoring in any subject they want. Also, those looking for a tutor pay what they want for the tutor of their choice. I’ve found it’s a great way to pull in some really quick and easy extra money as a tutor and a great way to find a tutor in any subject. It only costs $9 per month to list yourself in as many subjects as you want.
I am pissed right now. I looked at my grades for interpersonal communications because i was curious as to what I got on my final essay. I got a 60. I am not very happy at all because I worked incredibly hard on that paper and I think I deserved a much better grade than that. My teacher must have seen something seriously wrong that I did not catch if she gave me 60. I got a D- in that class. A grade i don't wish to particularly flaunt. While I may not have worked up to my potential on some assignments I worked my ass off for that class especially on my midrerm project another assignment which I could have done a lot better on than I did. This is a core class which I need for my communications. I needed a C or better to pass which obviously means I am going to have to take it again. GRRRRRRRR.. I am curious as to what kind of grade I got on my dramatic theory presentation. I was nervous and I think I clearly showed it while I was giving my presentation. I hope that wasn't too determental to my grade. I will have to talk to Wally when I get back to school in a couple weeks.
I am reconsidering my schedule again. I am having second thoughts about taking Seminar In Lit Postmodernism. It sounds very interesting but there are too reasons why I am having second thoughts about taking it. The first one is because I don't really need it for my major or my minor and the second is because I am overloaded once again with one course too many as I was last semester at the beginning of the semester. I don't want to dig myself into a deep hole and be stressed with too much work like what happened at the beginning of last semester.
I am also thinking I shouldn't totally eliminate doing stage crew. I think instead of eliminating it I should do stage crew for Mainstage because by the second half of the semester I will be fully adjusted to my schedule and will have a better plan as to doing homework so that way I won't have so much work to do at crew. I think the main problem with doing stage crew last semester was that I had a hard time managing my time to get my homework done before I went to rehearsal and then when I brought work to rehearsal with me it was hard to get it done because I found a hard time trying focus on doing my work and focussing on paying attention to the cues about when to get the props offstage. October was kind of a hard month for me because when I got back from having my surgury I found it hard to try to stay on top off all my work and the go to stage crew. Stage crew ended up being worth it though because I had fun like I always do. :) Yay for techies! Techies rule face!
I am excited about getting back to school! I have less than 2 more weeks at home for break but when you live in a town as boring as Amherst you'd want to go back to school.
Download.com has a program called memory lifter... it's a free flashcard program that lets you make flashcards, and it presents them according to how often you get them right. Sweet. Now, if I ever stop downloading things and start studying, I might do well on these effing exams.
