Need some advice [16 Sep 2007|11:11pm]

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.

Research study [05 Jul 2007|07:42am]
Hey everyone,

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.

If you are interested in participating, and are over 18 years of age the study can be found here https://www.psychdata.com/s.asp?SID=121648

PART TIME JOB AVAILABLE [04 Jun 2007|09:07pm]

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: susanconcar@capitalins.com 
Tell her you saw the ad online for the part-time runner position.

Good luck

Tell me about your dorm room experiences/expectations [11 May 2007|10:49am]

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.

Like free books? [14 Apr 2007|02:48am]

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.

Shameless promotion time:
You also get a book credit for every new member you refer. The link below is mine ;)

Make what you want as a tutor. Pay what you want for a tutor. [16 Feb 2007|04:53pm]
Hey Everyone,

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.

DRINKO?! [15 Feb 2007|01:45pm]
[ mood | determined ]

Has anyone else heard about this drinking game, "Drinko".  It's a spin off of the Price is Right's Plinko, and it used to be sold in Target, but it got taken off the shelves because of complaints, so now its almost impossible to find.  Has anyone played it?  It sounds pretty incredible.  Anyone know any other stores that sell it?  I can only find it on ebay.  Here is what it looks like:  http://cgi.ebay.com/DRINKO-Ultimate-College-Drinking-Game-BRAND-NEW-IN-BOX_W0QQitemZ190082296719QQihZ009QQcategoryZ3273QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item190082296719

gRRR [08 Jan 2007|09:47pm]

[ mood | aggravated ]

  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.

New toy! [10 Dec 2006|10:01pm]

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.

Long time no post.... [31 Aug 2006|03:25pm]

Hi Everyone. Sorry for the lack of posting in this community. I've had a busy and rather productive summer between having an internship at a local newspaper, having a summer camp job and being an orientation leader at my college for one weekend in July. So anyways I am back at collegw for my junior year. Golly, I can't believe how guickly time is flying and that next year I will be a senior. The fact that I will be in the real world in two years is really scary. I'm still trying to figure out what exactly what I am going to do with myself when I graduate but I have a while to decide on that yet.

One of my major goals for this year is to get on deans list. This goal was not fullfilled for me last year because I took some rather hard classes and did not do as well as I could have in some of them. I also had a lot of time managing my time and balancing homework and going to various meetings for clubs I am in on campus. So this semester I decided to only stick with the clubs I like and quit the clubs I didn't think I'd benefit from. I think that's going to help my time management a lot because then I won't be so busy.

Well i'm done for now
Peace out

Classes/paper problem [31 Jul 2006|01:42am]

Hey, I'm new here, and I have a bit of a problem with my classes and concentrating and papers.

So, I am a college student (as you might have guessed), and while my grades aren’t bad for someone in my position, they could be better. The problem I have, though, is this: At first, early on in the semester, I do pretty well on the assignments and papers, and I do them all, and I do my best in everything, but after a while, I start to lose interest in the class. I don’t do my assignments as often, my papers are done half-ass, and I procrastinate a lot more. I don’t really know why this is. It never really happened in high school, where I did my work with the same level of effort, regardless of how late it was in the semester, and regardless of how much I hated the class. It would be inaccurate to say that my problem is solely slacking off; rather, I think slacking off is an effect of my problem. The true cause, I think, is losing interest in the class, and thus, losing motivation, which can lead to slacking off.

To top it off, the classes I had last year (I just completed my first year of college and am about to enter my second) were fairly writing-heavy, and it was pretty much agreed all across the board that I could use some help in writing papers; not in the structure part of it, but rather in the grammar and non-BSing part. Since I was so good at writing and grammar in high school, it came as a shock to me initially, but now, I simply don’t know what to do. I know that there are books that can help me out, but I don’t know where to start. I would like to start this now since I know I will have to write a few papers this coming semester.

So, what should I do? How do I stay motivated and on the ball in my classes? How do I not procrastinate as much? Also, what books can you recommend that would help me write better, more concise papers? Would the Elements of Style help, or something else, or should I just rely on practice? I know it’s summer, and no one really wants to think about school, but it would be really helpful if I could get some help with this. Thanks in advance!

Loan question. [13 Jun 2006|01:06pm]

Hi. There hasn't been much activity around here but I thought I'd stop lurking and ask this while I still have my sanity.
I'm trying to apply for student loans and have run up against a rather stupid problem, the problem of having to choose a bank. Since we don't use any of the banks listed as our primary, how am I supposed to decide which bank to use?
Very confused person.
