Forum: What are you an expert at?

I am an expert at not knowing what I'm an expert at. There is nothing that I do extremely well in my life and that saddens me sometimes, but hopefully as I grow older, it'll all come to me and I'll realize that I'm good at something.

Thanks for the poll!

Subject: Re: Rank your stress level of your college loans

Forum: Rank your stress level of your college loans

This is what I'm stressing about now:

1. This isn't really a big stressor, but it kind of bothers me that I don't worry about it more, so I guess it is a stressor. I'm a Christian and I consider my relationship with God really important. So sometimes, I worry that because of my busyness, I end up having a shallow relationship and it will hurt me in the end.

2. I haven't even officially started the fall semester yet, but I'm stressing about my grades. I don't what to waste my parents money by failing out of college or going all the way through and my grades aren't good enough to get into graduate school. I know if I was like a SUPER smart person who could just understand things from the get go I don't think I would stress nearly as much.

3. College payments. I don't know where we're gonna get the money, so loans it is. This is why I NEED to make great grades so that I can do my part in helping my parents. I'm going to try to get into my schools Honors College so that I can get some scholarship money and I'll get a job to help too.

4. My health. Sometimes I feel that I'm invincible and nothing bad will ever happen to me, but that's a bold faced lie. I don't take care of myself like I should and I know that the stress takes a toll on me as well, as my parents keep telling me. So I'll try to end better and use the gym that my tuition pays for.

Forum: How many CNET scholarships have you won?

I have only won once, I'm really inconsistent, but I'm going to get better, because college is expensive, so I'll try to do this everyday.

Thanks for the post!

Subject: How do you make connections?

Forum: How do you make connections?
Hello Everyone,

I just went to orientation this week and I just started some summer classes as well, and a lot of people are stressing that they need to make friends. Some people just walk up to people and start talking, that is encouraged, and I don't mind it, but that's not my way. I guess you could say I play the long game. I kind of like observe how people act in certain situations. Now, pause, I don't stalk people or watch them like a creepy person, it's more like seeing how they talk and what about, and how they react to certain situations, then I swoop in later and then do the talking. In the past, I did the whole, walk up to strangers to make friends, but I always ended up in a bad group of kids that got me into trouble. I guess the down side to my method is that I have to be without people for a certain amount of time, but I always end up with good quality friends.

What about you? Do you like to walk up to people, wait a little while before making a move, or do you have another method? I'd love to see your answers.

Have a blessed day
~Faith C.

Forum: Dry or oily skin?
Hello Anna,

I have oily skin, no doubt about it. I have a skincare routine that dried my skin out for awhile but my skin adapted. Now the stuff clears my face and my skin is moisturized but not oily.

Thanks for the question


Subject: Re: How often do you curse?

Forum: How often do you curse?

I have tried to get better over the years. I usually only curse when I am extremely mad. So not often for me. I don't mind when others around me curse, I feel like tasteful cursing is fine, but every other word can be annoying unless the person is really upset, then I'd see why.

Thanks for the question!

Subject: Re: Morning Showers?

Forum: Morning Showers?

Well both have their advantages/disadvantages. Usually in the winter, I shower at night, if you shower in the morning, the hot water will open up your pores and once the cold air hits you, you are more likely to get sick. Also, you can get a bit more sleep. With morning showers, however, you can make sure you are 100% fresh and maybe it could wake you up. I personally take morning showers more often.

Thanks for the question

Forum: Lessons from 26
First of all, Happy Birthday!
Hello dymphie,

I turn 18 tomorrow and even though I wouldn't myself wise and a great advice giver, three pieces of advice I'd past down that I've learned from others is this:

1. Remember to follow the golden rule: Treat others as you want to be treated, this covers everything, because sometimes respect is more valued than qualifications, because those can be gained.

2. Focus on yourself first, before worrying about relationship. If your religious, focus on your relationship with God first. Build yourself and self-esteem first, focus on your ambition, and if along the way you find a special someone, okay, but don't let them sidetrack you.

3. Figure things out for yourself. Don't rely too much on others getting answers for you. Seek them out yourself and go straight to the source. Seek out wisdom from others for yourself. Seeking out wisdom is the wisest thing you can do.

Thank you for the great question, it really helped me reflect. Another good thing to practice is being self-aware.

Forum: What is one goal you have for the Summer?
Hello Kyle,

I am starting a summer program at my college before I officially go, so I want to be the best Faith I can be, and make great grades. I also want to apply for as many scholarships as possible and I want to read at least one book.

Thanks for the question!
p.s. Welcome back and starting to eat healthy is a good goal, one I should consider as well!

Forum: What are your plans for the summer?

I hope you enjoy your summer. I plan on doing a program that my school offers over the summer, I'll take some classes and hopefully have a good time. It'll give me a chance to get used to the school and know where everything is.

Good Luck!
