I could use some advice for making a decision, if you guys wouldn't mind.

For 20 years of my life, I lived in Northwest Ohio. 18 years was spent in a small village named Millbury, and the other two were spent in the city of Bowling Green. When I graduated from my school in Millbury, I went to Bowling Green for college. I only went for one year, and then I lived with my sister in an apartment for the other year that I spent in Bowling Green. I found a job and was living life...well, we'll just say it was "decently."

One day, I came home from work and my sister had subleased the place. Ha! Go figure, right? She subleases it without telling anyone first. It really sucked. So, I was kind of...well, homeless. I didn't have anywhere that I thought I could live. Then my parents, who had recently moved to Florida, asked me to move in with them. I thought it was strange, because normally the kids ask if they can live with their parents, but it was the other way around. They said they really missed their kids. So, I moved here on October 1st.

Okay, now here's the deal:

This place sucks. I really don't like Florida at all. It's nearly December, and we haven't had a day underneath 65 degrees. I love chilly days! They're the best. There aren't any of them here. Also, my parents live in a seniors' retirement village, so only people aged 55+ can live here. So, I have to stay inside all day. I can't go anywhere and I can't do anything. I love to take walks, and I would every single day, but I can't leave the house or else someone might see me walking around and get suspicious. Older people are suspicious of everything. I want to move back to Ohio.

Here are the facts:

-My parent's house in Millbury is still up for sale. They moved south before they sold it, because my aunt's house burned down in March of 2011 and they decided to rent it out to them for the time being--after all, they had just bought a home in Florida which was just kind of sitting there empty--and so they moved down here.

-My parents are trying to sell the house we're in right now exclusively for my sake. I hate that they're doing this, I feel like they're giving me more attention than I want. It really makes me mad. To be honest, it kind of kills my motivation to do anything, and I feel like they're spoiling me--they're both working, and because I have someone to rely on, I feel like I'm in no rush to get a job. I KNOW that I need a job, but I just don't feel like it, because they keep giving me stuff. I have never lived alone, and I want to be responsible for myself for once.

-The house we own in Millbury will be vacated by Christmas, because my aunt's new house will be complete by that time. My sister--the one that subleased our old place--will be moving into there. I do believe, however, that she would rather move down here, to Florida, than continue to live up there. She just graduated from college and broke off an engagement, so she has nothing going for her up in Ohio anymore. She can't move down here now, because I'm here, and the place that we have right now just isn't big enough for four people; we only have two bedrooms.

-I would love to live in the house in Millbury. It's where I grew up. I lived there for 18 years of my life. I know everyone in the neighborhood, and I love to take a walk every day at the park. There's not much traffic and lots of sidewalks, so I can easily get from point to point by walking (I don't drive and have no particular urge to do so, because I enjoy walking and riding bikes.) Because I walk everywhere, I could pick up a few jobs, like delivering mail and newspapers, and maybe even get a part-time job at a general store. I just want to be responsible for my own life for one time, and I'd love try living alone so that I can't rely on anyone.

-I hate to hurt people's feelings, I really do. If I say something to someone and it doesn't even faze them, although I personally believe that they may have their feelings hurt, by all means, I'll go and apologize to them. Most of the time, they say "for what?" And then I feel stupid.

So, here's what I want advice on:
Should I ask to see if I can swap places with my sis in Millbury?
Or should I stay with my parents, assuming that they'll be upset if I were to leave?


I'm sorry this post is so long, and I appreciate those of you who read it.

It seems to me that you need a goal. As hard as it is for you, I think you need to forget your old house and either find a job or go back to school. Switching with your sister won't change your situation, it only changes your location. Sit down with your parents and explain that you feel trapped and is there any way you can start doing things that will help you become independent.

This is emergency! I have a very serious problem, what does this mean "Inbox (-2)"?
Thing is CR doesn't give me notification if I only receive two messages.

*Not sure if this is the right place to ask this questions, if so.. I apologize beforehand:P*

My question is: Is it aloud to make a thread that is pretty much pointless(f.x. the question asked is pretty stupid and is just for the sake of a laugh or something like that.) ? I looked through the rules, but didn't come across anything that says it can't be done, but because it's pretty *pointless(won't achieve anything with doing so)* -to do such, I was just wondering, for realz:)

OK, so....

I've watched some DVDs from Nozomi (RightStuf's anime line). I always watch them on my Macbook pro. I've watched tons of DVDs from various companies on this laptop, but for some reason, the Nozomi ones always have this particular problem. When I skip ahead, whether to the next chapter, or with the fastforward, or by picking a point on the player timeline, or by selecting a chapter from the menu, it shows a white screen while just the audio plays.

If I do nothing, it stays white for 5-15 seconds before the screen goes back to normal. Which isn't much of an issue if you're watching a dub, but if it's subbed, you miss out on some of the dialog.

Is there any workaround? It's not like a total BSOD, but if anyone's experienced this or similar and found a trick around it, let me know! (They were DVDs I borrowed; I didn't buy them myself, otherwise I'd take it up with RightStuf directly )
