Forum: Favorite Pretzel
Definitely soft pretzels. Regular plain flavored ones with salt and cheese to dip it in. YUM! I like hard pretzels from the store just as a snack dipped in peanut butter, but nothing compares to a good soft pretzel with cheese dip when you're at a football game or the fair.

Subject: Re: Flossing

Forum: Flossing
Every time I go to the dentist, I promise that I'm going to start flossing regularly. I do it for like a week or two, and then I just stop. I hate flossing. Mostly because I have permanent retainers glued to the backs of my teeth (top and bottom), so the floss can't just pop up and down. I have to literally thread it through every single tooth with a little pokey tool. There's a lot of blood. Not my favorite thing to do.

Have you ever accomplished something really great in your life? It could be overcoming a bad habit, taking a chance with a new job, or a physical accomplishment like running a marathon. What's the hardest thing you've ever done?

Forum: What is the latest time a friend can call U@ night
I agree. 10pm unless it's an emergency. I wouldn't be mad if someone called up to like 11:30 if it was at least semi-important. Like if we had plans to meet for breakfast and the person needed to cancel and didn't want to wait until the morning to tell me. But just to say hi? Nope.

Forum: Would you rather?
If I have to choose between one or the other, I would absolutely choose respect. You can respect me and not love me and we can still have a healthy relationship. You can't love me without respecting me. That's a recipe for abuse.

Forum: What have you Dissected?
We dissected baby pigs in biology class in college. In grade school, all we dissected were earth worms. Boring. Like you said, it was more unsettling to dissect the pigs, but definitely a lot more educational and interesting. Not sure that we learned anything we couldn't have learned from pictures, but it definitely sticks in your memory better that way.

Have you ever tried spaghetti squash? I know it doesn't seem like it would be good, but it really is a great spaghetti substitute. I bet you could trick kids into eating their veggies pretty easily with it. You just cut it in half, drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and then bake it at like 400 until it's soft. Then you use a fork to pull out all the strings of "spaghetti" and just add sauce! It's great!

I remember in 7th grade, we had to build a house to show how people lived in a different period in history. My friend and I went ALL OUT and even wired the thing with electricity. It was awesome lol.

Subject: When someone leaves a voicemail, do you listen?

Forum: When someone leaves a voicemail, do you listen?
When someone leaves a voicemail, I don't actually listen to it unless it's from a number I don't know. If it's a friend, I just call them back. I don't understand why you would leave a voicemail for me. If I can't answer the phone, I can't listen to a voicemail. If you need to get a message to me BEFORE I can call you back, you're better off just texting me.

What about you? Do you listen to voicemails from your friends and family, or do you just call them back?

Forum: When stress out, how do U relax your body & mind?
I like to go hiking to relax. Something about getting outside I think is just good for your soul. When I can't do that, I think it's nice sometimes to just take a shower and put on fresh clothes. I know it sounds simple, but it really can make a difference, at least for me.
