I’m a mental train wreck but I’m not too whiny. My high is loud music and dim lights cause they’re an out of body experience which I hate but appreciate.
I read this book once about a girl named Charity (I'm 99% sure that was her name). I remember she did watercolour paintings for children's books in the story, and the book described her nursery when she was a baby. I believe she was an only child and was around adults a lot as a kid.
Anyway, the closest thing I've found to it is Charity by Lesley Pearse. The book description doesn't tell me much about the story I remember, so to those who have read it, is it the same book?
If not, who's the author of the book I remember?Books & Authors2 months ago
I panicked during the phone interview when they asked me my salary expectations and said the base 15/hrs was good.
My parents work in the field and said it's really low for the job and ideally I should've asked for 20.
My mom said I could tell them I got another job offer with a higher salary. I think I'll do this, but is there any other way to bring it up?
Also I live 2 hrs away and they want me to drive there a only few times just to visit. (It's a remote position) Should I ask them to cover the travel fees? Would it be too much?
I'm 19 and this would be my first time working for someone other than my family company or as a freelance designer so I don't have much experience with interviews.5 AnswersOther - Careers & Employment2 months ago

I wouldn't say "anything" but most things. (Don't wanna generalize)
It's like I don't feel entitled to anything and honestly it's a horrible thing. My 'friends' (cause idk if they consider me a friend even if they say they do) have to say "yes we included you too" all the time otherwise I couldn't know and I doubt everything I do because what if I'm wrong? Idk people say "don't take anything for granted" well I'm thankful every day for everything I have and it's not very fun.2 AnswersMental Health2 years ago
Last night I was on my phone reading a comic with my bedroom’s window blinds wide open and suddenly I saw a really weird light blue looking thing float around outside. It wasn’t like on the sky like a UFO, it almost looked like a mini drone and it was at eye level. The light wasn’t a dot nor was it an aura, it was more like a weird bent ring shape (I thought it was a little drone at first and that people were spying on me lmao) and I was wearing glasses but I could see the light slowly make its way down even after I turned my head (it couldn’t have been a reflection) so naturally I got up and looked for it from my window and I did notice an odd light but it wasn’t as concentrated as before, it was like it had vanished.
After that I shut the blinds, placed my phone down for the night and panicked for a little bit (until my fat cat who was at my feet the whole time started snoring like a man and it was all okay.)
Oh also as I tried to fall asleep I felt like I was getting slapped on my nose twice with a straw or something? It freaked me out so I hid under the covers the whole night and died of warmth.3 AnswersOther - Society & Culture2 years ago
I want to go to a college that is two hours from home. I would get there with public transport. But I think that it's still too far away. I don't want to have to move away either.
Is it too far?
If it is, there is always a college 20 minutes away from home but I really liked the other one's program better.9 AnswersHigher Education (University +)2 years ago
The surname is Auclair.
I really liked Kalin in English but in French it sounds weird and it sounds like you’re saying “hug” which is “câlin”.
So then Calvin came to mind, which sounds better in English but I still prefer Kalin in English.
Both languages have to be considered, but English is the main one.15 AnswersBaby Names3 years ago
A friend/acquaintance asked me out on Valentine’s Day.
I’m planning on telling him this
“You’re a really nice guy but I’m just not looking to get into a relationship right now.”
I’d still like to be friends with him but I’d tell him I’d understand if it would be too weird for him.
We’re both 17, he’s okay, social but not too loud. Has already been in a relationship but it ended in drama and I’m allergic to drama. I consider myself borderline apathetic so honestly idk why he thought I was attractive or “cute”?? (Like, I’m not a cat), all I do is nod, fake laugh and respond to his questions which seems pretty horribly boring to me.
My friends are all losers and have never been asked out before (I hadn’t either so I’m new to this) and their advice was half assed so yeah.
I’d also like to know how you (yes, you) would rather get rejected.

I’m 17, female and 5 feet 5.748 inches exactly. All I want is to at least be 5’6 (5’7 or 8 would be ideal.)
My little brother (he’s 14) is like 6 feet tall and that is absolutely not fair, I want to sue him.
(I grew like 2 cm in October so I am hopeful that I am not done growing.)
It will rid me of all my problems, perhaps if I am taller I will pass physics.10 AnswersOther - Health3 years ago
My 14 year old brother told me he smoked weed with his friend one time. I don’t know how many times he’s done it, but I don’t want it to become a regular thing. He’s easily influenced and has a decent amount of friends who smoke weed, one of them even went to rehab so.... I’m just worried about him. He’s smart, but he tends to do the opposite of what I tell him.
Should I tell our parents? (I’m 17 btw) I feel like if I did, they’d over react and from what I know he’s only done it once. He told me in complete confidence and I want him to trust me in the future.7 AnswersFriends3 years ago
