I believe that what makes you a good person or not is definitely in how
you treat people. All too often, I see people treating others in ways
that would break them down had the shoe been on the other foot. And I
find that to be sad.
As far as society goes, I think what makes you good or bad is your
intention. Sometimes, things don't come across in the way that you want
them to. And some people do good things for the wrong reasons. If you
only do something for the benefit of yourself, I can't necessarily say
that you're a good person. For example, I see people record themselves
feeding homeless people and uploading it to social media for likes and
attention. It's as if nobody wants to be decent unless they're sure
someone is watching. That's not a good person... you're not a bad
person, just a hot mess. Lol
Don't you hate when that happens?! It's like that song on the radio that
you find do terrible, but they keep playing it, so you have no choice
but to learn it? Then, out of nowhere, you're singing along and drumming
on your dashboard. Lol
The last thing I was suckered into was probably Harache shoes. I hated
how they looked for so long, but I finally tried on a pair and they are
so comfortable! Now I understand the hype. They don't look that great on
the shelf, but they're okay on people's feet. Most importantly, they
don't cost as much as other shoes!
Ditto! I tend to procrastinate on a number of things. It takes me about
twenty minutes to get ready to go in the mornings, start to finish, so I
will literally wake up twenty minutes before it's time for me to go!
It's terrible. I don't leave myself room to do even the slightest
variant of a thing. The worst part about it is I wake my son up and get
him off to school, then go back to sleep until twenty minutes before I
have to leave! Lol
Now, when it comes to homework, I try my best to stay ahead of the
assignments, but that isn't always possible. It grinds my gears when
teachers have assignments due on weekdays, and there is no weekend in
between the day when the assignment is given and the day it's due! Thos
are definitely handled the night of. It's like you said, even if I start
it a little early, those last minutes are always spent tightening up
When my son is here, I'm pretty consistent with dinner time. It's at
about 7:15p at my house. Because his bedtime is 8:30p, this gives him
time to eat and digest his food before laying down. It's also close
enough to bedtime to ensure I'm not hearing "im hungry" when
it's time to lay down!
Now, when he was at grandma's for the summer, I ate dinner whenever I
could. I worked from 7a-6p, then went straight to school from 7p-10p, so
Id usually eat on my way home around 10:15p. It was horrible! That's way
too late to be eating dinner. So I definitely need to regulate my eating
habits in the summer. I skip many daytime meals as well, so I'll be
doing better summer 2K17!!
I've been on all of the sites you've named and the only one that has
ever truly worked for me is CollegeNET. This is why I never believed in
scholarship sites. And, had this one not been suggested by my school, I
never would have bothered. CollegeNET is literally the only reason I'm
in school. Once this well runs dry, I'll no longer be going to school!
I've never even known anybody to win scholarships on any other site,
only sports scholarships.
Aside from the ones you've listed, I can think of scholarship owl. I've
never won, though, as previously stated. I think your best bet would be
to try to seek scholarships that come directly from the school you will
It kinda sucks that you have to do this on your birthday, but it has to
be done. Lol It doesn't really sound fun at all. I've never had an EMG
test done, but I have been tazed before. I was in middle school and
there was a bomb threat, so everyone had to evacuate the building.
Outside, everybody was in a frenzy and the weather was bad, so I tried
to walk home (I lived directly across the street). The police tazed me.
A few others were pepper sprayed and arrested, etc that day. It was a
Anyway, what are your birthday plans? Whatever you do, do it twice as
hard for us here on CNet! Lol I wish we could post emojis and pictures,
so that I could throw you a little mini party right here!! But have fun.
I agree with you about using a card. I very rarely have cash. And, if I
do, it's because somebody specifically asked for cash as payment, so I
had to go pull it out of the ATM. I don't like using cash bc it's not as
easy to keep up with. Nowadays, you can simply check the balance and
verify your transactions online or from an app. With cash, you have to
think back and/or keep all of your receipts to try and sort out where
all your money is going. It's just too much of a hassle for me. Plus,
it's easier for a thief to steal money than actually take any more from
you if you only have cards. At the ATM, there are security measures in
place that assure you will be protected. If you put your PIN number in
backwards, it allegedly alerts the police and they come to your location
(maybe). And even if they get off with the cards, all you have to do is
cancel them once the person takes off. Everything has theft
insurance/protection on it these days. Lol But with money, they can take
it and spend it right away! Actual money can't be traced back to you.
The one downside to NOT carrying cash is when you're at work
hungry/thirsty (or anywhere really) and you don't have any change for
the vending machines! I hate the fact that my job doesn't have an ATM,
but we are a nonprofit so money is not exchanged. We now have these
machines that take cards, but they charge you double for using the card!
It's insane. I'd rather die of starvation than pay somebody double for
$.50 bag of chips that already costs $.85 in the snack machine! I hate
to feel like somebody has gotten over on me.. Lol Anyway, rant over.
I lay down about 10p and fall asleep. Then, I wake up about 2a and look
crazy until about 5a, when I drift back off to sleep until my alarm goes
off at 6a. Soo... that's 5 hours. I try my best to nap on lunch, though.
I don't know what it is, but I just cannot sleep all the way through the
night. On the rare occasion that I don't fall asleep until about
midnight, I can sleep all the way until my alarm goes off. That doesn't
As a full day time employee, I prefer evening classes. Maybe prefer is
the wrong word bc I don't really have a choice. The good thing about
evening classes is that even the instructors are tired. They try to move
things along as quickly as possible so that we don't actually have to
stay there until 10pm. That's been my experience for most classes, but
that Geology class last semester.. OMG!! That teacher would talk until
about 10:15pm, and I would be so irritated. LET ME FREE!! Lol
If I didn't work, I'd prefer morning classes, so that I could get them
out of the way. I'm fresh and well-rested, so I can put up with a few
hours of lecture before I decide I need a break. Plus, that gives me
time to plan out my homework for that day. If I know about an assignment
that's due soon, I know to get started on it that day, as opposed to
waiting until a weekend, like I do now with evening classes. There's no
way I'm coming home at 11pm and starting on an assignment! I've don't it
before, but I suffered greatly at work that next day! All in all,
morning classes are the best!
Wow! Not only did you remember the incident, but the story was quite
detailed. I wonder if anyone has an earliest story that doesn't end in
As far as my story goes... well, I was 6 years old. I had left my
brother at school (he was 8) bc he wanted to walk home with his friends
and I desperately had to pee. I quickly shuffled home and tried to get
the key in the hole, but I had to pee soooo badly that I just couldn't
get it in! Then, there were two Siamese cats at the end of the porch. I
stomped my foot towards them in an effort to "shoo" them away
so that they wouldn't run into the house once I finally got the door
opened. Well, that didn't work. They attacked me!!! I climbed up one of
the pillars on my porch and held on for dear life as they scratched and
clawed at the bottom of the pole. I cried and cried as I peed on myself.
I stayed up there until they finally scurried off bc a woman came down
the street walking her dog. I finally got in the house. But, so I
wouldn't get into trouble for peeing on myself, I threw my clothes in
the dryer and hopped in the shower. Then I put the clothes back on. Who
would have thought that my mother would STILL know I had peed on myself
when she got home!? Lol Good times...
