I would encourage her to stick it out. She might need some more 1 on 1 tutoring especially in the difficult classes. If you can hire an anatomy tutor to go over the harder parts of the course or whatever she doesn't understand in the textbook and missed on the exam, do it. If she still can't do well after top notch tutoring maybe then it's time to drop but not everyone learns the same way. If she learns better with 1 on 1 instruction and can perform on the tests, then she is just like everyone else who got the same knowledge in the classroom. [ Reply | More ]

This. Far better to show off your shape than hide it, no matter what size you are. Shapeless clothes add weight. You may be tempted to not spend a lot of money because you don't want to invest in clothes at this size, but don't. Cut makes all the difference. A tall, thin woman can rock anything off the rack at Target or Old Navy, but a well-made piece makes a huge difference on a larger woman. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Would you rather A.) Work 8 hours per day at Starbucks earning whatever their typical wage is or B.) Work as a high end hooker where you must sleep with just one client per month (different person each time; not physically dangerous) and get paid $100K each month? You have to do either from age 20 until age 50 and assume that no one would ever have to know that you're an escort. 24 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

This. And the hooker scenario you're presenting is a total fantasy - there will ALWAYS be danger when you're meeting a stranger for illegal sex, and there will always be a strong likelihood that your career will be exposed. [ Reply | More ]

You should look at OpenSkies, a little division of British Air. 2 flights a day from Newark to Orly and 1 flight from JFK. Premium Economy (47" btwn seats or 40-50% more than normal coach) = $1500 round trip in April [ Reply | More ]

Whatever is cheapest and seems like a normal airline. Is this a trick question? [ Reply | More ]
General Topics 10.31.14, 05:43 PM Flag

OP: not a trick question. I don't fly internationally very often, but I do fly domestically very frequently for work. IME, airlines differ a lot in how pleasant they can make a trip, for the same price. Also, some airlines do some routes really well, others not so well. If this were a vacation trip, maybe I wouldn't care so much about how pleasant it is, but I'll be flying with my elderly mother to a memorial service. So, comfort at a good price is paramount for this one. [ Reply | More ]

^^ I know that "April in Paris" sounds like a lark, and that's why the family chose that date, which is sweet. But, truthfully, the timing for me is tricky due to a major deadline. Trying not to sound like an ingrate, trying to make the best of a trip that will be a little sad. [ Reply | More ]
