I sure do love posting on CNet as it's like being a writer and being
given a chance to have our voices heard and given recognition too for
that in the form of scholarship.
It's a place to share views opinions and debate on critical issues and
it's the only place where voices don't go in the background with massive
amounts of distracting media like in the case with other mainstream
Thank you for this forum. I love commenting here as well.
I'm a teetotaller and I don't drink alcohol because a close friend of
mine saw her father become a stranger to his own family and not show the
love with which he married her mother. Now, he's like so frail and can't
take care of himself and in so much debt that he had to get money for
buying drinks to serve his addiction. My friend's mother is hesitant
about divorce for this same reason. My friend asked me not to drink and
ever since then I have never drunk.
So that's a sad story. Sorry for saying that out on a Sunday morning.
But wait, I just wanted to know how is it when you drink? Do you lose
control fully and forget whatever happens or do you stop when you know
you might become too high?
Is it possible to control or stop after some time or will addiction get
the better of you? Who all do you drink with? People you trust or even
strangers at a party?
I'm asking all this because last week in a birthday party, another
friend of mine drank so much and danced that she twisted her ankle and
fell down and got an avulsion fracture. It's an isolated sprain of the
anterior ligament, it's not such a bad thing but still this does have an
effect that she won't be able to attend class for a few days, good thing
some of them are video lectures.
So is it worth all this trouble? The headache..the vomiting..the hangover?
Or will these all not happen if you drank in a controlled way?
Sorry for too many questions!
Please answer whichever ones you feel like!
And please don't take me wrong, I don't have anything against drinking.
In fact I give company to those who drink and don't have a problem, it's
just that I don't, for the above reason. Please share your opinions.
I like summer too. One reason I chose University of Florida is because
of the climate here in Florida. I prefer hot because you don't have to
wear extra clothing to save you from the weather. But there is one
problem: if it becomes too hot -> It's going to be unbearable.
Especially with humidity.
But otherwise it will be fun to be go out on a bright summer day, play
something outdoors, go on a trekking expedition and have a picnic or get
together with friends or just hit the swimming pool.
They say the best way to answer a question is with another.
This is a forum game. First poster posts a question. Second poster
answers it in the form of a question... and so on. Let's see how far we
1st poster: What did you have for breakfast?
2nd poster: Cereal, why ask, would you cook something better for me?
3rd poster: I can, but will anyone eat my dishes considering I'm a bad cook?
Hope this is fun.
Let me start with a question then. Are you using a PC or a laptop
now? (now as in while you are reading this forum ;) )
Any of you waiting for Sherlock Holmes' next season premiering on New
Year's Day? I love the series and am a fan of Irene Adler, Sherlock
Holmes and Moriarity in that order. Who is your favorite character?
It seems the episode is going to be screened in select cinemas, will you
be going to one or wait for Netflix?
How many of you are fans of Big Bang theory. A friend of mine got an
offer online during Black Friday for first 9 seasons in Bluray and guess
what we are going to do now.... Binge watch Sheldon Cooper & co.
Have a happy time bing watching series during holidays as you might not
have leisure time after the break ;)
Well, maybe watching something or listening to music or reading. In
planes I prefer to sleep so that I don't really have to rest too much
after landing because of the jet-lag and enjoy more rather than landing
and sleeping for more than half a day.
It's also easy for me to kill time in long-drives(when I'm not driving)
or in a plane( I would be the luckiest and the happiest if I get a
window seat) because I love nature and I love staring: at trees,
animals, clouds, sky or anything(not people coz I know that's rude..). I
can even stare at a wall for a long time and still not be bored and keep
my mind busy.So yeah, that's that.
