Forum: How often do you take a bath?
I take a lot of baths in the middle of the winter! After a long work day and a long drive home in the freezing cold, all I want is a hot bath with some salts and oils. It makes me so relaxed I can get right into bed afterward and sleep for hours. Maybe one day I'll get a jacuzzi...

Hi Mariah!

I can't stand cold weather! It makes me feel like I can't do anything. I have both Norwegian and French heritage, and for some reason the Norwegian in me doesn't give me any resistance to the cold. I prefer the temperament of weather in places like where my dad grew up in the south of France, warm, sometimes hot, never freezing cold, never humid. Eventually I will definitely get off the East Coast and live somewhere more pleasant...I feel like I can do anything when it's sunny and warm.

Forum: Do you work on the weekends?

I go to school full time, five days a week, and I work on weekend nights! I usually work two nights on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. I like my job so it isn't too stressful, but there are times when I have a lot of schoolwork to do and I wish I had a night off. The money is good though, and I have loans to pay off! haha.

Hi laj0010,

I started off working with children in high school and the beginning of college. I definitely enjoyed it, especially when the kids were well behaved. There were a few families I regularly helped. I also worked as a graphic design assistant, designing tshirts and posters for a local grocery.

The summer after graduating high school I got my carriage drivers license from the City of Philadelphia and worked at a company that gave people horse drawn carriage tour rides. I've always loved horses but couldn't afford to ride in the last few years, so it was great to work with them. I eventually left because I believed that overall the treatment of the horses was inhumane...they were either in their stable or pulling carriages on the street, there was no green space for them to graze or stretch. The owner obviously didn't care about them besides to make money off them, and she was very demanding of them and of the workers. The communication was very unhealthy. So I left but I try to visit and bring carrots!

Now I work as a hostess in one of the top steakhouses in the United States, and I love it. The staff is fun and friendly, and I like the service industry, though I hopefully won't be in it forever. I hope to work in the arts.

Hi Wonder Woman :)

I am currently sitting in the cafeteria at my school. I just had a meeting with my professor who teaches my class called the Art of Death in the Ancient World. I'm behind on my writings, so I met with her to talk about catching up, but she's so cool she told me that as long as I do the work and get them done eventually she doesn't really believe in the deadlines anyway. She's so cool haha, and I'm way less stressed now.
Earlier I went to a panel discussion lead by professionals who have careers in the the arts, or started out going to an arts university. It gave me some hope for my future talking to artists who aren't starving!

Have a great day!
