Forum: How many hours do you go to school for?
My grad program is low-residency. What this means is that for a week in June and in December, I'm on campus for 8 hours a day or more taking classes. The rest of the time, I don't go to campus at all, and work at home and online. I generally put in at least 15 hours a week on schoolwork, however.

Forum: Sick with a Cold ... Your Eating Habits.
I try to stay hydrated, and stay away from caffeine and alcohol because they're dehydrating, among other things. I definitely eat three meals a day, and need to, otherwise hangriness overtakes me. I usually eat oatmeal for breakfast, and the other two meals need to have some protein and some vegetables. That's my basic formula! I also take my vitamins every day.

When I get sick, I try and rest, eat/drink lots of warm liquids, and use my neti pot (nasal irrigation). I'm an aficionado.

I agree with the idea that if you're not treating your body well, you're more likely to get sick. When I get sick, it's almost always when I've been pushing myself too hard. I try and treat it as a wakeup call to listen to my body and be kinder to myself.

Forum: Is the 2016 Election a Dumpster Fire or a Phoenix?
I don't know. On one hand, I think this election has exposed a lot of people's dissatisfaction with corruption in politics. But it's also exposed a lot of very ugly tendencies in US citizens: racism, sexism, xenophobia, violent tendencies (in word and action). I want to think that after this election, people will organize and get more engaged in local and state politics, but I feel so discouraged. I think that for this election to be a phoenix, there will have to be a lot of community work done, and a lot of education. People can get really angry and spout off on facebook without necessarily understanding the structure of our government, or the relevant history behind what they're upset about. I think that education and community building is the key to put out this dumpster fire.

Subject: How Do You Unplug?

Forum: How Do You Unplug?
I heard a commentator on NPR yesterday saying that she thought that social media taps into humans' most aggressive and impulsive tendencies. Do you agree? Do you find that using social media puts you on edge, or not? How do you unplug -- do you have rules for yourself? do you use apps to limit your social media time? how often and for how long do you unplug?

Subject: Re: Exactly how open-minded are you??!

Forum: Exactly how open-minded are you??!
I think online discussions like those on CollegeNet are the most fun when they are lively. I definitely want to hear other opinions. As we all know, however, the internet is not always the place where people go to hear others' opinions open-mindedly, and things can get heated quickly. If people share divergent opinions, they should be willing to listen to others, and not just convince others. Luckily that heated tone is not a problem here on CollegeNet.

And when I post discussions, I would definitely want to hear a wide range of responses! True discussion would be great.
