Forum: Should We Give Money to Panhandlers?
Hey Randy!

I think we should always help when we have the chance, but sadly, it is true that if we continue to give we may encourage more panhandlers. I personally prefer to give the poor or homeless people I see on the streets food or water instead of money, that way I can be sure that they won't spend the money on things like drugs or for bad use.

Forum: Can you Describe Your Family In 3 Words?
Hey Famu!

I would describe my family as
1. happy: because the family is doing well and everyone is where they want to be.
2. successful: because everyone is pursuing goals and are on their way to achieving them.
3. ambitious: Each and every one of my family members have different dreams and goals than the other. None of them are just sitting around. Even though I may not agree with some of the goals, the important thing is that they all have something that is keeping them busy and making them work hard to achieve it.

Thanks for the forum!
Have a great day :)

Forum: How do you start a conversation?
Hey Jenelu!

I've noticed in myself that when there's not much to say I start talking a lot so that there won't be any awkward silence. But usually to start a convo i'll obviously start with hi and ask how they are, which everyone just replies by I'm good. Then I may ask them about something or someone that is important to them. For example, how's your husband, did he do this. Or how's your daughter, and her work. So that we can get something to talk about. And then things start moving from there usually. Anyways, that's pretty much what I do!

Thanks for the forum!
Have a great day :)

Forum: Do You Have A Favorite Ice Cream Shop?
Hey Kerry!

My favorite ice cream by far is Baskin Robin's. I could eat that everyday, and there was a time when i would eat baskin Robin's every week, or every time i passed by the shop. I always get the mint chocolate chip ice cream. It was my favorite. After I got married I also dragged my husband to BR, and sometimes we share a banana split. So yummy!

Anyways, thanks for the forum!

Forum: Do you have any pets?
Hey there!

I've always wanted a kitten but my mom is also allergic to cats :(! So I promised myself the moment i live alone i will get myself a kitten, but then i got married and my husband was also allergic to cats so it didn't work out.

When I was a child my dad got a pair of parakeets and they were nice to have. We would let them out of their cage and let them fly around, but they weren't always outside of their cage. So it's not as much fun.

Anyways, thanks for the forum!
Have a great day :)

Forum: Something you are looking forward to this holiday
Hey everyone!

So Thanksgiving is in 2 weeks! The holiday is nice, but i can't really always enjoy it. Because after Thanksgiving comes finals, and the break is really just to let us catch up on studying.

Other than that, what are you looking forward to this holiday?

I am looking forward to gathering with my family and friends and eating lots of yummy food! LOL!

What about you?
Have a great day :)

Forum: Stress
Hey Kiara!

I am enjoying this semester but I just have so many commitments outside of school that I am always feeling stressed out. So far I am doing well, but I'm just afraid I'm fooling myself and i won't do well in my finals or something. I know I'm overthinking but i can't help think what would happen if i just mess up my finals! uhhh that would be the worst. But still, I'm trying not to think about it and I'm just going with the flow and studying as much as i can. The most important thing is to enjoy what you are doing and not feel stressed about it!

But at the moment I'm happy and satisfied with my grades and I just can't wait to finish this semester and take a well deserved break from school.

What about you Kiara? How are you doing in school?

Anyways, thanks for the forum!
Have a great day :)

Forum: What are you most proud of?
Hey Megan!

That sounds like an amazing experience! I hope you both found everything you were looking for!

I guess for me personally, I am still at the beginning of my life and I am still working to accomplish things. However, I am proud that I picked good friends and I built good friendships with them. I am proud of the relationship between my husband and I. I am proud of the way I am working towards earning my degree and the time and effort I am putting in.

But I hope to accomplish more in the future and be proud of greater things!

Anyways, thanks for the forum!
Have a great day :)

Forum: The end-of-semester crunch
Hey Savann!

I also have a lot of my mind and just looking at my schedule makes me cringe. I can't wait to finish everything and just feel free for the holidays! I need this break! Especially since i also took 4 courses this summer, so haven't had a break in a while.

I usually just try not to think about it though. For example, yesterday i was really hoping to get a lot done, and i had plans to finish a big chunk of work so that I may relax a bit during the week. Well, things didn't go as planned and my internet for some reason stopped working which wasted a lot of precious time. So when i went to bed yesterday and i just decided no to think about it and hope for the best today. I just shut off any alarms and stress i as feeling before they would go off.

I think what helps me the most is dedicating my time to school work, leaving social media and my phone, and organizing my time. And that's how I get through it!

Anyways, thanks for the forum!
Have a great day :)

Forum: adjusting to daylight saving time changes
Hey There!

I'm trying to take an advantage of the extra hour in the morning but at night I am getting tired and sleepy pretty quickly. Plus, it's weird seeing the world become dark at 4pm, i was used to it getting darker later. So still adjusting but I'm fine with it.

Anyways, thanks for the forum!
Have a great day :)
