dont care

new student

Seeking advice or resources on tutoring teenagers who:
  • have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder
  • are "resistant" to tutoring

I am a psych major and an anxiety sufferer myself which is why this should be a good fit, but I'm new to tutoring. 

(no subject)

Quick poll:

What is more annoying between the two:

A.) Neighbor who has car alarm sensitive to motorcycle exhaust noise. It goes off every morning because he lives next door to a guy with a Harley that drives it every day.

B.) The fact that he arms it at night, and when it goes off in the morning he disables it from inside the house without going outside to look.

I mean, best time to rob this guy would be in the morning when the motorcycle drives by.
Nom nom nom nom

Damn four-eyes

I turned 40 a while back, and decided that I could finally do away with my youthful, prideful attachment to my once-better-than-perfect vision.  Any time I had to squint at something, I used to remind myself that once upon a time, I could read freeway signs the instant they crested the horizon.  My joke back then was that, where 20/500 vision is legally blind, I had 500/20 vision.

But alas, starting a few years ago, while the distance stuff is still pretty great, the up-close stuff causes me to squint and wince and, since I work in front of a computer all day, get headaches.  So I finally went out and got a prescription and I'm currently wearing my stylish new reading glasses.

In some ways, it's definitely better, but I definitely see a parallax effect as I move my head, and it's a bit disconcerting.  The opto I bought these from said that's normal, so I guess it is, but I wanted to find out from y'all... do you ever get used to that "swimmy" thing that goes on as you move your head when wearing glasses, or is it always going to be noticeable?
