Subject: RELATIONSHIP ABUSE

Forum: RELATIONSHIP ABUSE
If you have a friend in an abusive relationship, what is your responsibility? What is the absolute ceiling on what you will keep quiet about? Like, if he's only verbally abusive, calling her fat and telling her she isn't worth anything, do you just stay out of it? Or if he only hits her when she "deserves" it, do you just tell her that she shouldn't have done whatever she did to upset him?

At what point do you intervene and tell your friend it's time to let go? Or do you not at all, because it's not your business... or because they're married and they took a vow of "till death" do they part? Do you call the police if he's been physically abusive? Or is it okay because it is in their religion?

I'm just curious to know other people's thoughts.

It's hard to know what anybody is going through, but we have to remember they are human FIRST... and making people laugh is their job... if you're not good at it, you're not paid as much... and like any other job, most of us just put on a happy face to get through the day because we have kids to feed and bills to pay... life is stressful!! I'd hate to push suicide off on any particular group of people, but I can imagine how being in the spotlight and not being able to do "normal" things can intensify the stress for famous people... everyone is talking about you, good or bad, true or false... the cameras, the people, the stalkers... Their lives are hard in a very different way... put out there for all to judge...

Either way, may they all rest in peace!!

Subject: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE UNHEALTHY FOOD??

Forum: WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE UNHEALTHY FOOD??
The topic is comfort foods...

What is your favorite comfort food and how often do you eat it?

I love soul food and I eat it every chance I get! Which isn't often bc I love 5 hours away from my family... so two or three times a year...

When I'm in my city, my favorite food is actually salad... it's not exactly unhealthy but has no nutritional value...

I'm also a snacker.. I love pastries and snack cakes!

What about you?!

Subject: TRADITIONAL COLLEGE

Forum: TRADITIONAL COLLEGE
My little brother attends a college that is very unique in order! Two things that I'm not used to are:

-Co-ed dorm rooms... Now, we've all heard of that but, starting at the sophomore level, you are allowed to roommate with a student of the opposite gender! Not just same sex in one building (staggering the floors by gender), not even same sex on one floor (but same sex roommate)!! I thought that was insane!!

-He takes one class at a time. They each last three weeks and he has his credits! He goes to the class from 9-11 and then 1-3 everyday. Of course, some of the easier classes won't need to meet as often, but literally everybody on campus is in classes at the same times! I can definitely see the pros and cons of this, but I'd like to know your thoughts...

What do you think of this setup?? And do you think you could be successful in such an environment?

Forum: THE WORKPLACE ANTICS
Tell me about your work environment? Is there someone that you absolutely can't stand? Why?

Also, do you think you have been passed over for recognition or a promotion because of the higher-ups "playing favorites" or discriminating?

Do you, honestly, believe that your position deserves a raise? Why or why not?
