I love and hate my own support system.

How do I 'get better' when I have conflicts with my own support system? My mom wants me to get better, but I'm easily irritated by her and now I'm moving to be close to her while seeking the help I need. TL;DR in the end because I just have a lot of issues :/ [more inside]

Educational woes.

I reached my financial aid limit at college because I spent four years taking classes in order to "find myself." I took time off to figure out what I wanted, and now I'm working two jobs to pay to go back. Can you recommend some regionally accredited online schools that aren't too costly? [more inside]

Community College system help!

Need help understanding the community college funding models. I have recently heard about the 'Contract Education' model at community colleges in CA where you pay the school for an accredited course or program to be taught off site. Does anyone know how this process works and how expensive it is? i have searched online and cant find the info. Thanks!

I don't remember much of High School, but I don't believe my transcripts that I was on the Ladies' Tennis Team.

My high school transcripts have major errors in them and no one in the school system wants to help me fix them! I'm pretty sure I had more than a 0.0 GPA and I know wasn't on the girls' tennis team! (I'm a guy, I think I would remember the skirts!) Will this effect my chances at returning to college? [more inside]

Help an ENTP narrow down their career path choices....

In the last couple months I've come to realize that I am not alone. My personality is my problem and it is what has made this post-college thing so hard on me. ENTPs are sort of visionaries who can be the best and innovate and succeed at anything we put our heart to but we get bored very easily if we aren't socially, creatively satisfied and doing some "analysis" or "innovation" or "problem solving". We also don't take well to being "told what to do". (Sort of like a cross between Steve Jobs (visionary, creative, secretly self-obsessed) Calvin (from the comic), Jack Sparrow, The Joker, and Wile E. Coyote. ) [more inside]

What are some free online services/products for students?

I'm looking for free versions of paid products offered to students (or just in general). Examples of what I'm looking for:
  • Github offers two years free to students upon request of their micro plan.
  • Amazon Prime is free for students for a trial period
  • MSDNAA
I'm primarily interested in SaaS/programming-type offerings but anything useful would be great. I'm open to non-student free things too such as the AWS free tier or electronics components from manufacturers (<3 TI).

Too sad to be good convo partner?

Ok, so I've been having this problem lately (and I think it's related to my recent depression) where I meet new people and kind of expect that I'll never develop any friendship with them, but then it actually does happen, and I realize in horror that when they bring up previous conversations we've had, I act completely clueless because I didn't bother to remember it in the first place, and they say something like, "Remember we were talking about how my mom lives literally right next door to you?" (seriously, that happened today) and I remember suddenly, but clearly have already made it obvious that I didn't remember it in the first place... That's been happening a lot lately, and I want to know how to recall what I talked about with people more. [more inside]
