[ - ] My DH has always said he wants to be "surprised" with baby news, old school style. We already have three kids, and I didn't do anything special for those times (unless tossing a pee stick his direction counts). Any creative ideas to tell him about #4? Just him and me - we wouldn't tell the kids until Tri 2. 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Inbreeding is only an issue if there are recessive genes that are being allowed to express themselves. Like hemophiliacs, etc. I don't know if seizures are really hereditary in the same way to be honest, but I'm sure a geneticist could answer that for them. [ Reply | More ]

He seemed off the entire "date" and was extremely creepy. He felt "off" the entire time and I should have listened to my instincts. Then he paid me in fake money and snuck out the door. I later had a threesome with another girl who met him and also got ripped off with the fake money. My theory is the girls who got killed spotted the fake money before he left and caused an altercation over it. [ Reply | More ]

You are me! I planned a 3 week honeymoon to Australia NINE MONTHS in advance. I told them I was getting married and taking a 3 week honeymoon. I had only 2 weeks of vacation per year and I told them I was prepared (and expected to) take the third week unpaid. They told me I could not take 3 weeks off even if one was unpaid- they told me I would have to plan a shorter trip because they couldn't accommodate 3 weeks of me being gone. So I said fine, and I bided my time, and I put in my notice 3 weeks before my wedding/honeymoon. Fuck them. I'm much happier at my new job (which, of course, I secured before I put in my notice. But there was no way I was changing my one in a lifetime honeymoon trip regardless.) [ Reply | More ]

Good for you. I did five weeks in Australia one winter (their summer). Amazing. Glad I planned it while I was in grad school. But next year I have a lot of out of town weddings and need to take some courses that are offered 9-5 every day for a week to help me get a job I like better...so I will probably just work through June and then do this stuff I want to do, and start something new in September.

You sound young by the things you describe, so if you are, then definitely do what you have planned. When you've been with a company for 20 years you have to be much more nuanced in terms of what you ask from them, but for you, if the job already is not what you want and you think you have skills to secure something better, then don't skip important things in your life to accommodate a job that you know you're leaving anyways. Best of luck! [ Reply | More ]

Still in my twenties. I could offer to stay at this job PT, but I don't think that's what they want. The job has a high amount of stress, and I am looking forward to my new ventures. [ Reply | More ]

4 days after labor day to make a full week off the first week in September, and you can go wherever you want- you'll have a full 9 days. Enjoy! [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] WWYD? Want to get a specific degree/license. I can take courses at a state uni for $350/per credit. The schedule is hard with my current job. Or I can pay 10k and do it at crappy online uni (Mercy College) and be finished by next year, when I can quit my job and transition into new field. If I do the state uni I would have to quit my job next June, start the program, temp for a year and then be finished. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

It's a 12 credit extension to my masters degree in education for working with students with disabilities. [ Reply | More ]

It will provide some job security. I basically plan to tutor "full-time". About 20 hours a week of student time will provide me with my goal salary. If I compete this degree extension, my clients will be happy to see those credentials. The DOE will also refer students to me that I can work with during the school day in their study hall or resource room classes. The pay is much lower than my regular rate, but it will give me additional experience and a little extra income in the hours I typically wouldn't find much work. And also makes finding a FT job easier, should my tutoring business totally flop. [ Reply | More ]

No. Has to be through Brooklyn College or Mercy. [ Reply | More ]

^It's a tough decision. And Brooklyn College does 3 week, 4 day a week classes in the summer. Impossible for a not-current teacher to do. I might be able to get off early for a 5pm class 1x a week. Waiting for their Fall schedule, but unlikely my boss would approve that. [ Reply | More ]

If I were you I'd crunch the numbers. Salaries under each scenario, expenses for coursework and see what your bottom line would be. Then factor in the rapidity of getting hired in your new career. Make it as coldly logical as possible, it may reveal what you really want. [ Reply | More ]

It's really a tough decision. Working July of next year would probably make up for the cost difference. But mercy is clearly an inferior university. I make 60k at my current job. Will probably make about 80 when I make the switch and have shorter days. [ Reply | More ]
