  • Freshman in college dating a high school senior? No or Go?

    Some background info: I'm 18 years old, and a freshman in college, and the most important thing, I don't like dating casually. I date people only when I'm sure I truly like them and will continue to do so for an extended period of time.

    I stayed in the area of where I went to high school and I work part time at a friends family owned restaurant as a hostess. Because I stayed in the area, my coworkers are either friends that go to the same uni as me, or people that attend the high school where I graduated from. There's a guy that I work with (Collin is a senior in high school, recently turned 18) who likes me, and I like him too.

    I suppose my question is if whether or not I should date him.

    Some problems I foresee: 1) He's still in high school and his future isn't secure, meaning I have no idea where he's going to school next year. Having gotten out of a long distance relationship with someone I felt I truly cared about because he ended up developing feelings for a girl on campus, I'm not sure I'm ready to take up another LDR. I know Collin is like me when it comes to dating, and enjoys long relationships rather than casual dating. I've talked to him about his plans for next year, and he tells me that his number 2 school is the Uni I currently attend, meaning there's a possibility he'll stay in town.

    2) We're polar opposites and lead different lifestyles. Collin likes to party a lot, and like most high school parties, there's alcohol involved. Meanwhile I will attend a party or two, and that's about it. I don't mind his partying; what I do mind, and I'm absolutely terrified for is his liver.

    He assures me his drinking and partying isn't as bad as I make it out to be, and tells me he's very different when partying alone with friends, and when partying with a date. I'm assuming this means he tones down his drinking with a guest enough to still be a gentleman?

    3) While I have absolutely no qualms on this, I unfortunately know that my parents do. Collin is of a different race than I. While I know my love life should solely be under my jurisdiction and control, I do feel that because I still live at home, and am not financially independent, my parents get a say in whom I'm allowed to date. While I do not agree with many of their ideologies, I do love them and respect them, and do not wish to upset them. Some advice on how to soften my parents views and maybe getting them to accept Collin would be great.

    4) Dating in the workplace.

    Collin and I acquired our jobs through casual means. We were never interviewed for the job, we were just given it. So a dating in the workplace policy was never made clear to us, nor is their a handbook we could look through. My friend's mom is Collin and I's boss, and while being my friend's mom, I know she'd be happy I'm happy, but as my boss I know that she could potentially worry about work dynamics if Collin and I were ever to date and break up, maybe so much as to if she found out, not allow it. Might it be a good idea to tell her if Collin and I start dating? Maybe sit down with her, and make it known that we understand work and relationships are separate things, and that our relationship or eventual potential lack there of, will not get in the way of our work responsibilities? While it might be a little awkward, I feel like this will show her we're clear on what is expected of us, and she might be more keen to allow it. Or maybe is this something not worth mentioning at all? So long as we keep it "professional" during work hours, the only time she would see us anyway is when we close the restaurant and all sit down to eat.

    I'd like to say I'm a good judge of character, and I solidly believe Collin is a sweet guy. I still don't know if I should start a relationship with him knowing there's a possibility he'll move away next fall. Yet at the same time, I can't discard the idea that he might also stay in town and attend the same Uni as me. I know I care a lot about him on a friend level, and if I knew for sure he was attending the same school as me I'd dating him in a heartbeat, but I'm not so sure now.

  • Work attire for a Hostess? Family owned, not high class restaurant?

    I've been working there a couple of weeks and have worn dress shirts, blouses, skirts, dress pants, khakis and an assortment of flats.

    When first hired my boss just said no jeans, no tshirts. When I asked her for a more detailed dress codes she wasn't able to tell me more.

    She's told me I dress nice, but that I dress TOO nice, and the couple of times I've worn a dress

    both were lace dresses with a black belt and oxfords she'd compliment my clothes/look.

    Here's the deal though, I don't want to wear a dress every single time I work.

    I need some type of medium max dressy being the clothes I've currently worn, and min dressy being the dresses I've just described.

    My friend's parent's the owners of the restaurant dress in jeans and tshirts.

    The restaurant manager will dress in dresses and boots, blouses and printed pants (essentially looks like jeans?) and jewerly.

    She looks nice, but I don't think she can be mistaken as a customer because she has the manager card for the register on her wrist ALL the time.

    I want suggestions on how to dress my age (18), without ending up looking like a customer.

    We're not a high end restaurant but we'll get some customers who'll dress nice?

    I was looking at the forever 21 website and I found somethings I like.

    A couple of sweaters, and cardigans and a poncho I think?

    Is it acceptable to wear these with leggings/dark jeggings? ( i know they can't be rainbow and such, and have to look "professional". Or printed jeans?

    Essentially, the restaurant manager would wear pants like these

    http://www.bluefly.com/Romeo-Juliet-Couture-celest...

    with a black blazer and a nice blouse and jewelry.

    I work tomorrow, and I have NOTHING to wear tomorrow. I'm going shopping later tonight and need some ideas as of what to wear.

    Some of the stores in my area are : Wet Seal, Charlotte Ruse, Marshalls, Kohls, JcPenny, Macy's, Forever 21, Sears?

  • Velocity and magnitude of an angle? Physics?

    The mass of a particular eagle is twice that of a hunted pigeon. Suppose the pigeon is flying north at 17.3 m/s, when the eagle swoops down, grabs the pigeon, and flies off. At the instant right before the attack, the eagle is flying toward the pigeon at an angle θ = 35.1° below the horizontal, and a speed of 35.7 m/s.

    What is the speed of the eagle immediately after it catches its prey?

    What is the magnitude of the angle, measured from horizontal, at which the eagle is flying immediately after the strike?

    I don't have any idea how to solve this, please, any help is appreciated.

  • linear momentum question components. (Physics)?

    Bryce, a mouse lover, keeps his four pet mice in a roomy cage, where they spend much of their spare time–when they\'re not sleeping or eating–joyfully scampering about on the cage\'s floor. Bryce tracks his mice\'s health diligently and just now recorded their masses as 0.0145 kg, 0.0243 kg, 0.0175 kg, and 0.0173 kg. At this very instant the x and y components of the mice\'s velocities are, respectively, (0.667 m/s, -0.671 m/s), (-0.709 m/s, -0.889 m/s), (0.413 m/s, 0.261 m/s), and (-0.267 m/s, 0.617 m/s). Calculate the x and y components of Bryce\'s mice\'s total momentum, px and py.

  • How to solve for drag force? Physics?

    A 6.80 × 103-kg car is travelling at 30.7 m/s when the driver decides to exit the freeway by going up a ramp. After coasting 3.90 × 102 m along the exit ramp the car\'s speed is 12.9 m/s, and it is h = 14.9 m above the freeway. What is the magnitude of the average drag force exerted on the car?

    I have no idea how to solve for the answer.

    The homework hint for this problem is: How is the work done by a non-conservative force such as drag related to the change in the car's mechanical energy?

    Please show equations and steps taken to solve for the answer.

  • Calculating distance (Physics)?

    A boy shoves his stuffed toy zebra down a frictionless chute, starting at a height of 1.09 m above the bottom of the chute and with an initial speed of 1.99 m/s. The toy animal emerges horizontally from the bottom of the chute and continues sliding along a horizontal surface with coefficient of kinetic friction 0.263. How far from the bottom of the chute does the toy zebra come to rest? Take g = 9.81 m/s^2.

    I have no idea how to solve this. Any help is appreciated. If you do solve it, please show your work and the equations used. If you wish for me to solve it, then at least point me in the right direction.

    I have a couple of questions.

    1) Am I correct to assume this is essentially a two step problem, while the zebra is in the frictionless chute and when it's no longer there?

    2) Also, at first I thought the initial energy was Potential energy due to gravitation (they give a height), but since they give an initial speed I believe that the initial energy is Kinetic energy?

    So does that mean the energy the zebra ends with right before leaving the chute is Potential energy? For which I would solve from a height of zero?

    I know that for both the Kinetic and Potential Energy equations I need a mass to solve for, but since it's not stated that means I should be able to cancel mass, and the only way to do that is setting KE=PE, right? Why would I do that though? Is it because energy isn't " lost" but actually transferred?

    Lastly, how does the coefficient of kinetic friction come into play?

    Thank you so much for your help!

  • Physics, find the magnitudes of two vectors only given 2 angles and a third vector measurement?

    Vector C has a magnitude 22.2 m and is in the direction of the negative y axis (So when adding c in the a+b+c ( c should equal +-22.2, right?)). Vectors A and B are at angles α = 45.4° and β = 25.2° up from the x axis respectively. If the vector sum A+B+C = 0, what are the magnitudes of A and B?

    I thought I solved it, My answers were A=-69.96664604 and B=54.29467874

  • Physics problem help? Distance traveled over time.?

    You are eating lunch at your favorite cafe and your friend calls and says he wants to meet you. He is calling from a city 155 miles away and wants to meet you somewhere between the two locations. He says he will start driving right away, but you need 31.0 minutes to finish your lunch before you can begin driving.

    If your friend plans to drive at 65.0 mph and you plan to drive at 50.0 mph, how long will your friend be driving before he meets you? (Ignore acceleration and assume the highway forms a straight line)

    FOR THIS SECTION, I USED THE AVERAGE SPEED EQUATION= (TOTAL DISTANCE TRAVELED)

    / TOTAL TIME TRAVELED. I ENDED UP WITH 71.538 minutes. Is this correct?

    How far will you have traveled by the time you meet him?

    I'm really confused on this part. Wouldn't "you" have traveled 77.5 miles by the time "you" meets their friend? Since they're meeting halfway? Am I missing something? As far as I know the 31.0 minutes of "you" eating lunch are irrelevant, correct?

    I'm pretty sure the top part is correct, but if it's not please show equations and the step by step process used.

  • Average acceleration question? Physics?

    Here's the question.

    A busy chipmunk runs back and forth along a straight line of acorns that has been set out between his burrow and a nearby tree. At some instant, the little creature moves with a velocity of -1.31 m/s. Then 2.79 seconds later, it moves at a velocity of 1.81 m/s. What is the chipmunks average acceleration during the 2.79-s time interval?

    Now I know the equation for average acceleration is (Vf-Vi)/(Tf-Ti). So the two velocities required for this problem are the 1.81 m/s( this being velocity final) and the -1.31 m/s (this being velocity initial) correct? So since it asks me for the acceleration during the 2.79 second interval. My time initial should be= 0 and time final=2.79 seconds, correct? Because I solved the problem exactly how I mentioned above and I got 1.4695, and that answer was wrong.

    I know which equations are needed, but I'm not sure how to go about and solve it, any help will be appreciated.

    Thank you!

  • I don't know what I want for my birthday!?

    I'm turning 18 in two weeks, and my best friend keeps asking me what I want for my birthday. I don't have any classes with her at school and I rarely see her, so I told her I would like to see her for my birthday! So, I am going to! But, she still wants to know what I want for my birthday. Honestly, there are many things I like but nothing I really need or want. Honestly, all I really want is for someone to make a big deal about my birthday, you know? Last year, I spent my birthday in a wheelchair, alone, being puked on by a special education student. None of my friends/acquaintances/evenclassmates remembered and it was pretty crummy, then I came home to parents who completely forgot my birthday. Honestly, that's all I want, I see classmates that walk around with balloons and birthday cake from their friends, and I get kind of jealous. But the thing is, I don't feel like it's special if I ask her for that, you know? So what should I tell her I want? I'm thinking clothes would be the best option, so is there anything in particular that comes to anyone's mind that's under $30, I don't feel comfortable having her spend more, although I know she probably will. Something cute? I'm thinking an accessory like a watch or a necklace or ring?

  • eyeglass frames for high prescription?

    I have really bad eyesight and I've recently been reading about something called "high index" lenses. I read that essentially, this is the best option for someone with a high prescription because it thins the lens. While I know that bigger frames usually lead to bigger eyeglass lenses which isn't something advisable to someone with a high prescription. Does getting high index lenses, really make a difference appearance wise? My optometrist says they do, but honestly I'd like the opinion of someone who's not benefiting from my choices, you know? So, back to my question. If I'm a kind of a fan of bigger framed glasses such as these:

    or

    or

    http://www.lenscrafters.com/lc-us/prada/6794204884...

    does getting high index lenses potentially mean I could use whichever frames I choose? Or would getting bigger frames= bigger lenses kind of cross out the point of getting high index lenses.

    Even if I get high index lenses, would it still be recommended for me to opt for the "smaller frames" such as these?
