  1. I would expect a pastor that had his congregants following him to maintain a professional profile on social media. That is just so unacceptable, I just can't even. It's one thing to say "I am concerned about policies because ...." and just below the belt jabbing in a way with language I wouldn't find acceptable for my own teen and young adult. Not only would I not return, I would carefully type up a letter and let some powers that be know exactly why I am returning if that were at all possible.
  2. One thing I was going to mention is to dig into the demographics of architecture programs individually for realism. I actually was pre-arch for a year in college. The architecture program at our big 10 school is open to undergrads. But the average student accepted was 27+ years old and already had a bachelor degree and professional experience.
  3. I think 2 BS will count as a double degree at some institutions. It does at my son's because it is out of 2 different "schools". If there is a large base of core work that is the same for both majors, that is double major. Very common in BA programs and liberal art focused schools. If 2 degrees have their own set of requirements, that would be double degree. This is really common for non-BA music majors. My son is working on a comp sci BS and a music BS. Where he attends that is dual degree. If he were doing 2 BA's, it would be a double major. BS degrees are often more specialized than
  4. I'm at a keyboard now, so I was going to add I think if there is no buy in from anyone about a good path forward, it's going to be a hard road no matter what. You can't make a teen use an app or a checklist on their own devices without buy in. Things like setting up your kid a work space in the main area of the house and having her use it is a habit thing that you may need to enforce consistently for a few weeks until it becomes automatic. You may need to be the back up for an alarm for a while. If you can sit down with the teen and say "listen, it's obvious to me when you do W, X, Y and
  5. My kids reminder pop up on her phone and her school laptop. Google calendar can work for this at least with an android. I’m sure something similar could be set up with apple calendar.
  6. Well I just had teens who prefer not to have much in face time and nagging never goes over well with anyone not to mention it is not fun. I currently have set up both google calendar and an online homeschool planner with notifications and a to do check list. Not all academic things on the checklist. Sometimes I do wake her up but at times I’ve had an extra loud alarm in the hall that the teens have to physical get out of bed to turn off. So I think you can rig something up like this with an onl8ne planner/calendar. The big issue in is getting buy in on using it and follow through.
  7. I will say both my kids ate a ton of popcorn when they had braces. They were just mindful of hard kernels. My kids were older when they got braces and I couldn’t really enforce those rules easily. They also had hard fruits and veggies, we’d just cut them up smaller.
  8. I really am hoping by like the April time frame the picture on vaccine rollout will be much clearer and we will have more data to work with. I hope we see data on Johnson and Johnson's singled dose vaccine within a few weeks here which could make a huge difference in rollout. Anyway - I feel like it's just too soon to be certain or to make unalterable plans yet but I'm crossing fingers.
  9. I am so sorry and no this absolutely wasn’t your fault. 💕 thinking of you and yours.
  10. We use dr. bronner's soap in foaming soap dispensers and that works great and makes it last a really long time. I cannot imagine using it as toothpaste. We have used it on hair like when camping or something but do not recommend for regular use.
  11. I have multiple sets of grocery boxes and I get tons of compliments on the: too. I know I have recommended them on threads here, they are so handy they often get procured for other uses too
  12. I really enjoyed the inauguration. I thought the whole thing was lovely and optimistic and a nice diversion and spectacle. ❤️ I thought Amanda Gorman was great. As the parent of a young adult, I thought of her parents and how that must have felt for them. I'm sure they almost exploded. ❤️ 🙂 That said, as someone who has kids in the arts and who seeks out these types of performances and know young people that have done this (I actually know a young poet recognized nationally this year), she was great but not really unexpected to me? I always worry when someone gets the overn
  13. If he actually tested positive for Covid, he had to have been exposed and if it is only been 10 days since his 2nd dose he definitely wasn’t fully protected. He may have been exposed prior. I’d be angry at the facility for not keeping up safety protocols. We had huge numbers of assisted living and nursing home outbreaks and deaths here prior to the vaccine. It really may just be awful timing. I am very sorry. I hope he is able to turn around. Thinking of you and your family.
  14. I think of jealousy as different than craving something for yourself or feeling wistful about relationships you wish you had or grieving. Jealousy just connotates certain outward behavior in my head. But I can see how someone else might use those words interchangeably when you talk about it like that.
