Forum: Between a rock and a hard place
Perceiving the difference between ethical and nonethical values can be difficult. This situation often occurs when people perceive a clash between what they want or "need" and ethical principles that might deny these desires. If some rationalization begins to occur, this situation is probably present.

So my questions are: How, exactly, should we think through an ethical issue? What questions should we ask? What factors should we consider? Have you come across a situation or heard of one that had an ethical issue?

Remember, however, that having the facts is not enough. Facts by themselves only tell us what is; they do not tell us what ought to be. In addition to getting the facts, resolving an ethical issue also requires an appeal to values.

Forum: Waitlist/Crashing classes
I just on a waitlist for my Financial Management course recently for this semester. I wanted to take 12 credits this time and when I thought I wasn't going to have this class, I was disappointed. I was placed at number 6 for a week before being bumped up to number 3. A week before school started, the spot finally opened and I registered immediately. While I may be impatient at times, this time, I stayed on the waiting list and it paid off. I printed out my Excel courses needed form that shows the classes, credits, completed credits, and remaining credits. I have completed 34 credits with 12 in-progress so far. I need both 62 credits (Entrepreneurship Emphasis in Business Administration) and 65 credits (Management Emphasis in Business Administration) for my undergraduate B.S. business degree. More work, yes, but it will be well-rewarding when I graduate.

Forum: What's your ideal house?
This is rather funny, but I have created some homes on Facebook's YoWorld of what I would like have someday. Also, I would be switching in going green; solar panels, geothermal heating, tankless water heater, LED bulbs, energy-efficient appliances, and nontoxic building materials. I would also be installing a sensory deprivation tank for my husband who is a Navy veteran who suffers from PTSD, PNES (Psychogenic nonepileptic seizures), anxiety disorder (nonspecified), agoraphobia, night terrors, and chronic migraines. This would give him some reprieve from the overstimulation of the world outside the home (he doesn't go out much unless he really has to).

Forum: What do you do to relax ?
I listen to music every day for various reasons. It helps me relax and motivates me to get things done, aside from my coffee. It is proven that music influence our daily lives. Have you noticed the different types of music that plays wherever you may be shopping or eating? Take a casual restaurant for instance, or a bar. Both establishments choose the right type, i.e. oldies or easy listening to faster upbeat genres, to accompany and enhance the food; to create ambiance and atmosphere; and/or to influence menu choices. Happy music creates happy customers or patrons. So, the next time you are at a grocery store, take a moment to listen to what type of music the organization is playing and how it makes you feel.

Forum: Do you like long drives?
I love going on long drives. The only downer is having the financial means for gas. If money wasn't an issue, I would be driving everywhere, haha. I will travel 4 hours from home to visit my biological mom for a weekend or an hour to see my adopted dad for the day. I load up on coffee and music before heading out. I only stop once to fill up when I am on my way to see my mom. I haven't visited her in a while because I need to change out my tires soon. They're still in decent shape, I just would like to have new ones. I usually head out in the morning for my long drives. I also make sure I am well-prepared for anything unexpected.
