At work I watched this with no sound. Definitely seemed NSFW for the whole duration.

Ah this reminds me of my high school days. Our mascot was a Reaper (harvesting tool) I know, lame. Our banners outside the school would say Reaper Pride and Reaper Nation. Though our neighboring competitors would sneak over and cover the E.

Raper Pride and Raper Nation. Still proud..

I believe if you choose that route you will screw up your future more than anything.

If you are actually going to be in the pool just go shirtless. But if it's one of those parties that are just next to the pool then wear a shirt. If you go shirtless keep your shoulders up, don't slouch. You will look more confident/attractive.

Shirt on while in the pool would look more odd on a skinny guy than a fat guy.

Everyone knows why fat guys wear shirts in the pool but if a skinny guy does then everyone is going to ask you why.

Me, my fiance, and cat are moving to the other side of the country. We are most likely getting a Uhaul and driving there with my parents help.

Any tips and tricks would be appreciated. Thank you.

We just moved across country with two cats and a rabbit. I posted on Reddit for advice and someone mentioned micro chipping. Fortunately my cats didn’t escape but not a bad idea. Buy a big carrier. One of the cats had a smaller carrier and she was a lot more uncomfortable. Next buy these things on amazon: a food dish that attaches to the carrier (we put ice in there for the cats to stay hydrated and it was less messy), pads in case your cat has an accident and a spray that relaxes cats. I also bought treats that were suppose to relax the cats but my cats didn’t like them. When driving, put a towel or blanket over the carrier. For the first hour, the cats would not stop crying but as soon as my husband covered them they were fine. Good luck

Thank you. This will be very helpful!

Landlord says I have to call Moneygram to replace the money order that my landlords company lost. I called Moneygram for this replacement and it has an option for the person who received it and lost it. Landlord and I both have proof that they received the deposit. So why should I have to be the one to fix their mistakes?

Landlord says that if I don't replace it then I won't get my deposit back. Is this legal?

I also am suspicious that she's keeping the money order that she 'lost' and will try to cash it for herself when we least expect it. She is a shady person that accepted pills from our neighbor as 'rent'.

The money order from Moneygram is a negotiable instrument that has stale date fees/penalties. In other words, even if the LL gave you back the original money order, you would have to pay a fee to cash it... I don't know how much that would be, but it doesn't matter. You would not recover your original deposit even if the LL gave you back the original money order.

The escrow rules for deposits, etc. that landlords must follow are there to ensure that the money does not go missing, lose value, become subject to compulsory fees, become commingled with operating cash, spent, etc.

I think that this is definitely the LL's problem, not yours, and it would be the LL's problem even if the original money order could be produced.

Keeping a money order instead of depositing it is a bad business practice on the part of the LL. You shouldn't be put in the position to do anything to correct this bad practice. If I were you, I would tell the landlord to provide a check for the deposit amount within the 30 days as required by IL law. He's going to make some leap of logic that its your problem because he never deposited the funds, so therefore he never got the money that you want him to write you a check for. Tell him that it's his bad practice, and his problem, not yours. If the situation goes beyond that, talk to an attorney in IL who is familiar with this area of the law.

Good luck!

Thank you.

Even if he did deposit it, he'd still owe you that amount anyway. NAL.

That's exactly what I told the LL but she disagreed.

No I haven't looked into night school, I've never been entirely sure what it was really. I've always assumed it was just when you took classes at a later time, so I've never had a reason to look into it either. Do you mind explaining a little? I'll still look into it on my own time.

And I'm kinda 50/50 on going to Community College because I'm not sure if I'll still qualify for the perks of financial aid, like the grant I talked about in my post. And if I do I'm not entirely sure it'll be worth it. I was hoping a four year because I think I'd have a lot more opportunities while there, but I am not completely disregarding CC either. I guess I just haven't looked into it enough yet.

Night school will be exactly that but depending where you live you might be in a classroom full of adults. You would have to ask your school about the programs they offer. My school had a flex program where everything was on the computer and kids graduated early by working on it at home.

Community College will save you thousands if you get your associates and then transfer to a 4 year. Trust me, in the career field no one cares what colleges you went to. But that's all up to you.

I know for sure Community colleges don't have an issue with accepting those with GEDs. Usually when you go to take your GED the community colleges have classes for you to study. Also, have you looked into night school?

By reading your other posts sounds like he thinks you are just an option, the current option. He's keeping his options open and isn't focused on you. You need to move on.

Be confident but ask questions. Take deep breathes if you feel overwhelmed. Don't worry, the first week or two is always the worst in any job.

It is normal for cats to act this way when they feel threatened or frighten. Many cats do this when they are introduced to another animal (mostly other cats).

When cats are like this it is normal for them to be very defensive.

Also, bites from insects is something to look for.

Assuming you are in the US. If you do choose the military do research on the state benefits for the national guard or reserves. In Illinois I get free tuition and the gi bill for being in the national guard but reserve in Illinois doesn't get the free tuition through the state itself but through the schools that accept it. The army websites will give you the correct information for your state.

We decided that we should move out of the bad part of town into a more pricey area. We don't have friends or family who are in need of moving so should we find a stranger or 2? We aren't moving soon but just would like to know how to find some roommates and what to be cautious of.

We are in Northern Illinois if that makes a difference.

Those books are expensive so at the end of the semester I sell them but I always keep the receipts to have my 'tax guy' get me a bit of a refund. A little bit still helps!

Most of the apartments are so cheap compared to here in Illinois. I'm considering moving there but is there a catch?

The apartments around me average $800-$1,250. Atlanta, Georgia is about $400-900. The weather there is nice too. Seems too good to be true.

You need to be really careful where you locate yourself- the lowest cost apartments are usually in the highest crime areas.
Start hanging out in /r/Atlanta and learn about the area.

I'm in need of a new car soon.

I know quite a few coworkers who have leased cars and they brag about it.

My parents tell me to never lease a car but won't give me good reasons.

Can someone please help me figure this out?

Leased cars are great if you need/want new things every couple years. If you seem to change cars every year or every other year then you should lease. A leased car will always be new, a lot of the maintanence that comes with owned cars (especially later in their life) is negated, you are still responsible for returning the car in good condition though.

Cons are easy, your paying for a rental - no equity at all. I’m fact at the end of a lease if you don’t lease a new car from the dealer they will charge you an additional fee... (if you lease then you should be looking to lease before the first lease ends, a new dealer will buy you out of your first lease to get you in a new car - do this when you approach your miles limit or near the end of your leasing term).

Buying is a bit more satisfying in my opinion, if you can keep a car running 6+ years without getting bored then buying is for you. Payments are higher than leasing but at the end of it you actually have something that has some value unlike a lease. And if you drive the car for a few years after it’s paid off you’ll wind up having more money (in the long run) than a person who is leasing over the same time frame. I purchased my vehicle, it’s been paid off for a bit over a year now and having no car payments is a wonderful thing. However my car just rolled over 60k miles, so very soon I am going to have to spend a couple grand replacing shocks and some other misc. maintenance.

My wife leases, I buy. My car is now paid off so no payments but I do have general maint. She gets to change vehicles every other year and always has the nices new bells and whistles on whatever she wants to drive.

Good luck in your car hunt!
