  1. My hair is to my butt and pretty thick. I don't have dreads to contend with, but I've found the best way to deal with my hair is to hold it in my hand like I'm going to put it in a regular old low ponytail, fold it in half so it loops, put the band around it once, fold it again, and wrap it around again. It basically makes a low bun-type thing. I do it loosely so that it doesn't just get wedged in one spot and get uncomfortable. If you do it slightly off to the side, you don't get so much arch interference. :)
  2. I wonder how many people understand this reference? Mostly people with a foundation in mathematics and sociology. ...and sci-fi nerds ;)
  3. Anyone get this journal? It's put out by the University of California and came across an abstract that sounds interesting, but even when I try to go to the payment page to view it, it says I do not have I'm guessing you need to be with the institution or something. This is the abstract: Sociological Perspectives Winter 2006, Vol. 49, No. 4, Pages 583–605 Posted online on January 10, 2007. (doi:10.1525/sop.2006.49.4.583) "He didn't Go in Doing A Skydive": Sustaining the Illusion of Control in an Edgework Activity Jason Laurendeau‌ University of Lethbridge Exploring Lyng's notion of "edgework," this article draws on ethnographic data to explore the ways skydivers create and sustain the belief that they can maintain control while working the "edge" in this sport. The article focuses on the ways skydivers construct and maintain the "illusion" that they can exercise control as they negotiate their particular edge. It elaborates the ways this sense of control is constructed and the extent to which it informs the ways risk recreators approach the edge. In the choices jumpers make about how they participate in the sport and the ways they interpret the experiences of themselves and other jumpers, they defend the position that their hazardous environments are within their control. When this position becomes untenable, they often draw on the notion of fate to construct certain hazards as outside of the sport, thereby sustaining their sense of control.
  4. HEY, my brother is hot!! Ew...that hurt my soul to type.
  5. Creepy.

    Should I worry?

    You can always go to small claims court if something like that happens. While it's a huge pain in the ass, when it's an item that is worth a decent amount of money, it's probably worthwhile.
  7. My past experience with standardized tests has always caused way more stress than necessary. I seem to do alright on them. It's just my nerves that kill me. I get so stressed out!
  8. I'll be taking the GMAT too. Working towards a JD/MBA. Should be fun. LOL.
  9. I just ordered some practice tests from the LSAC. They're $8 each and come with the answer key and explanations of the answers. I figure at least I'll have an idea of what to expect. It's the not knowing that wreaks havoc on my nerves.
  10. I just registered to take it in June and I'm terrified already. I usually don't get scared of tests, but I don't even know what to expect. I've been looking around for books and such that can help, but there are so many and I don't know which ones are worthwhile and which ones are a waste of money. Any suggestions?
  11. ....ok....maybe I should have read the whole thread before posting. Sorry! :P
