Forum: Football and Thanksgiving
Hello everyone!

Do you watch football on Thanksgiving Day? I personally am not a fan of watching sports on the TV, maybe if I'm at a bar watching it with other people I'll enjoy it, but it's definitely not something I do by myself for fun. I enjoy going to sporting events and cheering for teams, but that's because I feel like I'm in the action, surrounded by other cheering fans. Watching it by myself on the TV though just seems sad. That being said, someone in my family inevitably turns on the game on Thanksgiving Day, so I'm sure I'll end up watching some of it. The day after Thanksgiving I will be going to a football game at my University, so I'm excited about that.

So, do you guys watch football on Thanksgiving Day or any other time of the year? Let me know!

Thanks,

Jordan

Forum: Favorite Dog Breed?
Hello mkwilliams1117,

I absolutely love all kinds of dogs, although I am not a fan of Chihuahuas at all. My absolute favorite dog of all time is the pug. I have all sorts of pug photos on my TV and a tapestry of pugs on the wall in my bedroom. I just love their cute little wrinkly faces and bodies. They are adorable and can do no wrong. I can't wait to have my own pugs and dress them up in cute little outfits.

Thanks for the great question!

Forum: how do you celebrate the end of the semester?
Hello mini.apple.chan,

When the semester is over, I'm looking forward to painting my house and doing some much needed cleaning/renovations. I'm really excited because my house really needs updating and it will be much nicer to live there once it's all painted, plus I'll get to finally spend some time with my boyfriend without exams/homework/deadlines constantly looming over our heads. I'm also excited to spend time relaxing and enjoying the holidays with my family.

Thanks for the great question!

Forum: Coffee or Tea?
Hi KingArthur,

I love both tea and coffee! Especially during the winter months, I'll drink a cup of tea almost every day. However, if I'm really in need of a pick me up or that extra boost throughout the day I'll go for a mocha or some other coffee-inclusive beverage.

Thanks for the great question!

Hi Unique_girl17,

One of my favorite things to make on a cold day (or even when I'm just having a bad day), is homemade Kettle Corn. It's super simple, fast, and incredibly delicious. I make it on the stove and it is infinitely better than microwave popcorn. I can (and frequently do) eat the entire thing by my self.

Thanks for the great question!

Subject: Honeymoon Destination?

Forum: Honeymoon Destination?
Hello everyone,

Have you thought about your honeymoon (if you are planning on getting married)? I think about it from time to time, because I really love traveling and going new places. If you are married, where did you go on your honeymoon? If you plan on getting married one day, where would you love to go for your honeymoon? Personally, I think it would be really cool to go to New Zealand - there are a lot of different adventure activities to do there, as well as more secluded/romantic natural sites to see.

A lot of the younger couples I know right now that got married or are planning on getting married did not go on a honeymoon because they couldn't afford it. Or, they went on a cheaper, more local honeymoon. Do you think that honeymoons, and maybe lavish vacations in general, are falling out of style or becoming an unattainable dream for most people? I personally don't really want to get married until I can afford to go on my "dream" honeymoon or afford a wedding without going into debt.

I'm curious to know your opinions on this!

Thanks for your time,

Jordan

Forum: Do you pee with the door open?
Hello Raelo,

My house growing up was (and still is) fairly anti-privacy. Most people just peed with the door open, and even if it was closed, that didn't really mean that someone couldn't barge in on you at any minute. If you truly wanted privacy, you needed to lock the door. My parents' master bathroom has a glass door, so if you were in there, even locking the door wasn't a guarantee of privacy! Of course, when we have guests over, no one pees with the door open, but when it's just the family, it doesn't really matter.

When I'm home alone at my apartment, I totally pee with the door open. In my old apartment, I could see my TV from the bathroom, so I didn't even have to stop watching my show to relieve myself. In general, I don't really like small, enclosed bathrooms, which is why, when I have the opportunity, I tend to leave the door open.

Interesting question, with some definitely surprising answers!

Thanks for your time,

Jordan

Forum: Do Profile Pictures Matter?
Hello Ratio,

As has already been said, it does help to have a profile picture and a completed profile. It makes it seem like you're serious about what you're posting and that you want to actively engage with the community. Plus, psychologically, people are going to humanize you and empathize with you if they can see your picture, rather than the sort of faceless default picture. I definitely don't think the picture is the end all be all, what you post, where you post, and when you post more greatly effect the likelihood of your receiving votes. However, it certainly doesn't hurt, and as things get more competitive, it makes sense to try to get an edge any way you can.

Thanks for your time,

Jordan

Forum: Is this a good idea?
Hi Leland,

This seems like a great, fun idea. However, I have two concerns about it.

1) People will most likely just google the riddle to figure out the answer first.

2) Once someone gets the answer right, people would just stop posting on your forum, as there isn't much of a "discussion" after that point.

It's totally up to you, and I would definitely participate (without google). I'm just trying to give you some different perspective on it.

Thanks for your time,

Jordan

Forum: Best movie in the theatres!
Hello MLJay,

I agree - La La Land was a great movie. As soon as I saw it, I immediately wanted to rewatch it. I was hesitant about going to see it because I wasn't sure if it would live up to all the hype. But I think it most definitely deserved every single one of those Oscar nominations (and wins!)

I also recently saw Get Out in theaters. I was nervous about seeing it because of all of the racial overtones (and the fact that scary movies tend to freak me out), but I'm really glad I saw it. It was a really great, original movie concept and really well executed. It wasn't overly scary or intense, but had just the right amounts of tension and thrill. Totally a great movie, and I will be seeing it again when it comes out on DVD.

Thanks for your time,

Jordan
