This is devastating. I have no words. . .

Forum: What would you do?
Ahhhhhh I don't know!!

If it was a sexual predator, I would either call the cops because it's considered self defense and my friend would be free. OR I would burry the body with her because he deserves no proper burial.

If it was an innocent person who was murdered... then the right thing to do is to call the cops. But I really can't predict my actions if this situation actually occurred. I hope I'll never have to deal with this my whole life.

Forum: What is on your mind today?
Ah... I'm thinking about how I'm going to study for my GRE test and my audiology test when they're only a day apart.
I'm thinking about other problems in my personal life.

I'm thinking about how I can change my coworker's negative mindset, and how she can move into an accessible and affordable apartment. She has cerebral palsy, and can't use a bathtub because she has no control over her feet. Most apartments have bathtubs, so she currently lives in a cube for $1000 a month.

I'm thinking about veganism, and how I need to reduce my meat consumption.

I'm thinking of many things that are hurting my brain.. :sigh:

Subject: Who are your ambitions directed towards?

Forum: Who are your ambitions directed towards?
Hello CNET Fam! :)

We all have dreams and ambitions in life. For the sake of this forum, I want you to think of your top 5, and then answer the following question.

Are your ambitions directed to yourself only or others? Could they all be categorized under the first person needs? Are they complex? Lucid? Vague? Challenging?

I can already predict MaDonna & Jenni's answers since they're mothers :)

There's a quote that reminds me of this question, it says: "If all your prayers were answered, would it change the world or just yours?"

Ah.. I seriously love this quote, because of its power to make the reader self reflect.

Forum: How hard is it to study after work/marriage?
I really enjoyed reading everyone's posts on here! What you're all doing is beyond impressive.

I will graduate this December and I'm planning to go to Graduate school right after. I have a lot of married friends who are still in school, and although it's very stressful and hard, they're managing to get good grades. I think it all depends on the person and how well they can manage their time and stress. The majority of my married friends actually got pregnant while studying, so imagine the stress they had to go through! A semester off definitely solves a lot of problems!

I am someone who gets easily overwhelmed, so I'm not sure if I'll be able to have a full time job and juggle 18 credits of grad school courses. The first year of my graduate program will bring me to the real world, in which I'll have to create therapy plans for real clients. I do however think I can be engaged during my master's program, just not married.

Subject: Re: Should animal dissections be mandatory in schools?

Forum: Should animal dissections be mandatory in schools?
Hey Jenni!
Your forums always grab my interest! But I don't always get the chance to contribute to them.

This is a tricky issue that we're discussing.

If a student believes it's morally wrong to dissect animals, then they shouldn't be forced to participate in dissections. I think the lab instructor/teacher should have a handout with the picture of the animal they're planning to dissect, and all the student has to do is label it, and answer the questions.

I personally LOVED dissecting animals. I dissected a sheep's heart, a cow's eye, a frog, a grasshopper, and a worm. To me, that was the only good part about biology class, and that's why I never thought about the possibility of other students being forced to do it against their will.

I've seen videos taken inside a school's lab overseas, they were dissecting a LIVE SQUIRREL. IT WAS CRYING. Now, that obviously crosses the line on so many levels, and should never be acceptable.

Subject: Re: Presents

Forum: Presents
I legit cannot recall a time when my parents bought me a birthday present. We're not a typical family that celebrates birthdays, so if we do end up getting each other something, it's usually cake.

My father helping me out with my undergraduate school tuition is on its own one of the best gifts I could ask for. I have discussed how I feel about birthday presents in a forum I wrote about a month ago. I don't think a person necessarily earns their birthday presents, so I never expect any birthday presents.

I don't necessarily think there should be a cut off age on receiving birthday presents from parents, because it all depends on that family's traditions.

Subject: Re: Accident, 911

Forum: Accident, 911
I'm glad you were okay!

I'm about to tell one of my MOST embarrassing stories that I've never told anyone before.. so here I go:
I got into a really bad car accident around 8 months ago, a guy rear ended my car so hard that my bumper was completely destroyed.

It was raining, I was frustrated, and I was dialing 911.

But did I?

It was my first time dialing 911, and because I was so shocked by the whole accident, I was DIALING 991!!!! I dialed it over 5 times and I was so frustrated that I got a voice mail message.

I think the guy who rear ended me called 911, because they arrived right away. Hahah...

I was fine, but my head was hurting very bad so they took me to the hospital for a check up.

Forum: Missing a day of CNET!!!
NEVER MISS A DAY! I make CNET a priority when I'm competing, I've been posting an hour before midnight this past week, because I have been super busy during the day. I dedicate a couple of hours every day for CNET, the less motivated I am, the longer it takes.

I'm glad you still have a solid chance at winning this week's election though!!!

& @Crimson, we've missed you on here! You keep posting then leaving throughout the week, I know it's difficult to commit to CNET when you're busy. But hopefully you'll post everyday this upcoming week! :D
