Forum: 90's: Furbies or Tamagotchis
Hi Dymphie,

I never had a tamagotchi, but I always wanted one. Not for any particular reason, but all my friends had them so I wanted one too. I did have a furby, but it was so obnoxious and creepy! You couldn't get those things to shut up half the time. I wonder what toys will be remembered 10 years from now by those who are currently young, and of toy playing age.

Thanks!
Gabriella

Hi W -

Congrats on your scholarship, that's awesome!

Someone at work said something really nice to me that reminded me there are people who care about me even if I don't always realize. It's easy to go through life without really taking notice when the people around us are struggling or need some positive reinforcement. That makes it easy to feel alone in the world. It's encouraging when that turns out not to be the case!

Thanks,
Gabriella

Hi Kasey,

I hear you. It's been a little unbearable for me. it's been in the mid to upper 90s with plenty of humidity to go around. I had when I check the weather in the morning and see 100% humidity. Those are the days I just give up and let my hair run wild and free. No point in styling it, because the moment I go outside It poufs up like a lion.

This coming weekend, my company is having a family outing to a Knights baseball game, and the forecast has been toggling between 97 and 99, with plenty of sun. If there wasn't going to be free food, I would probably opt to stay home that day. Hopefully the forecast will change and it will be more pleasant to be outside.

Last week I went out to lunch with some coworkers, and even though we agreed beforehand that we would sit inside, I got there and they had changed their mind. Rude! It was 90 out, and it was miserable. I wish I could tolerate high temperatures better. Maybe over time it will get better.

Have a great Tuesday, and stay cool!

Forum: Pros and cons of taking test online?
That does sound really frustrating. I hope you were able to finish the exam!

The downside of online test taking for me is that I often don't have enough motivation to properly prepare. I know ahead of time that it will essentially be an open book test, since there's no supervision while I take it. Knowing that I won't need to come up with all the answers totally from memory makes me less likely to study well, and therefore I probably don't learn the material as well as I should.

Technology is great, but I wish they could keep it minimal in schools. Especially in the classroom. It's a useful studying tool, but people managed to learn just fine for years and years. I don't think technology is making people smarter in any way, but rather making it easier to know less and still get by.

Thanks for reading, and good luck!

Hi Unique,

I'm at home right now. I had a long day at work, and glad to be done for today. My husband is at a client meeting, and running late, so I'm waiting for him to get home so I can cook dinner. The day goes by so fast, it's crazy. I can't believe it's only a couple hours till bed time already.

Have a great rest of your day,
Gabriella
