You know. Its usually subtle but unmistakable. If it feels wrong it probably is. Either deal(what i chose) or approach your dean of students.
If organic chem is not a required course avoid it. Its brutally difficult and super technical. If you did well with Aand P 1 and you are looking toward health science go for AandP 2. Its stimulating and doable. Its by all means not any easy class.good luck!
drive to your nearest hospital maternity ward. look at the healthy babies in the nursery. and Newbee you will feel the presence of hashem

I would like to apologize to anyone who took offense to any of my comments in this thread. I would be thrilled to live in a neighborhood of shomrei torah umitzvos of any stripe.January 19, 2016 4:24 pm at 4:24 pm in reply to: Questions About Monsey's Litvish/Chasidish Sociological Mix #1132857

since this conversation clearly hit a raw nerve, and thus is sticking around let me sub-divide: Post-bonder kollel/old time monsey non chasidim/ Wesley hills/new Hempstead Pomona types are all categories of non shtreimel wearers. Chasidim basically are either tuna types or regular folk. PBK types are growing exponentially. the rest of the groups are experiencing regular growth patterns.
DO NOT MOVE TO MONSEY WITHOUT SCHOOLS FOR YOUR CHILDREN. Schools are legit overloaded.January 15, 2016 11:26 am at 11:26 am in reply to: Questions About Monsey's Litvish/Chasidish Sociological Mix #1132838
I appalled,though unfortunately not surprised by tone of this thread. on a practical level you don’t belong in Monsey. On a hashkafic level I think you are tragic. your self congratulatory condescension is quite stunning. My opinion life is richer, more complete, more beautiful with the full fabric of society. So much of the fabric of our daily lives transcends the shape of our husbands hat and the shade of our hosiery how sad to lose those opportunities
Baruch Levine is a sweetheart
She who carries the baby, suffers chevlei laydah etc.. gets to name the baby. Not the father and certainly not the grandparents. A woman who is a mentch will take everyones ideas into consideration. Ultimately a successful girl or boy will elevate even the most odd sounding name into the height of cool and sticky.
Park ridge Marriott is a nice lounge sort of date spot. Or drive twenty minutes or so into Westchester to one of the many hotels
Given how much girls are being asked to contribute in a marriage above the ksuba described duties of course they don’t want just anyone
1. ER has plenty of poverty in yeshivos and in PS. Just stand around Rockland Kosher on a Friday and observe the number of EBT cards in use. or, talk to tomchei Shabbos. It makes a nice story Rich vs. Poor etc but its isn’t true
2. ER has a lot of problems the elephant in the room is the out of district expensive pplacements for special needs students,
3. and in terms of raising taxes they are obscene and unmanageable as it is[ In a two income family]
The situation in East Ramapo is beyond frustrating. There is no way to win. The Board has made some very difficult choices with some flamingly awful PR. We are being taxed to death, and regardless of what main street spring valley seems to think have a very difficult time accessing services we are legit entitled to. In all likelihood the crux of most of the ER board choices wouldnt change no matter who was sitting there but it would be alot less of a lightning rod with other people in charge.

You want to go to sleep away camp for a year? You don’t want seminary. Former Devora is a MO institution. Sem should be an intense powerful learning experience for growth and change (@20k it better be powerful

Probably not a great idea, even if you are in a bad matzav financially. Sit him down and say honey heres how its going to work: we are providing you a room meals snacks soap shampoo etc.. You are responsible for a good attitude,your own clothes and your entertainment budget, Also as part of a household occasionally sweep a floor, change a diaper[if applicable] or offer to run an errand
not every sfardi eats kitniyos; my poor sis DOESNT eat kitniyos, or gebrokts on achron, or Chicken all of pesach,

what Im wondering about is wether the overwhelming urge to give her a ride is Yiddish rachmanus at work or perhaps something less kosher. Do Not give her a ride, she has no business asking.
Don’t be so makpid chill
I’m a mom of kids-not cats I do not think one changes children in public. Airport behavior should be similar to Ines behavior in a bank. So, unless you consider changing diapers OK in the bank,don’t change kids in an airport. Further its never OK to shout, yell,or insult. Any shred of right you had,you lost with the ring comment
Genius It was a pad as in a pile of sticky notes shaped like an Apple
Ok. Im a Woman here is my response: I enjoy coming to Shul Simchas Torah with my children because its a forum that allows each of us in our own way to express our excitement with the Torah, My husband along with my sons sing and dance my teenage daughter gets dressed up in her nicest yomtov clothes and does what ever it is that frum teenage girls do to be celebratory. As I have two left feet and less than a sense of rhythm Im perfectly happy in the observer role.
as I understand it, it is the responsibility of the party who offended to earn the mechila from his VIC it is wrong utterly to make it the responsibility of the offended party to work out his or her feelings without intense effort from the offending party.

the concern is not that he went for help, the concern is the comparison with his ex. That is odiousSeptember 7, 2015 6:07 am at 6:07 am in reply to: How much do you spend per person for shabbos food for 3 meals? #1099510
The Shabbos day seudah is likely your most expensive meal of the week assuming a menu of fish,liver and eggs, fleishig chulent an assortment of cold deli meats plus veggies, challah, dips and wine. the single most surprisingly expensive food is a properly prepared chicken soup[ not hot dirty dishwater eith a spoon of osem]
my Kids school asked me for what style filter my workplace has. This is something I obviously have no control over yet, they askedAugust 11, 2015 6:26 am at 6:26 am in reply to: How to act around an older single friend when you get engaged? #1095362
natural. Its your job not to act like you are better than her because you found a guy you want to share your life with[ mazel tov BTW] It is her job to remember that you didn’t steal her guy, and your being engaged will have no negative impact on her chances
focus first on talking to Hashem informally. hashem help me get out of bed in the morning, find a clean bathroom at the doctors office etc.. Once you feel like hashem is part of your sounding board formal tefillah will come easier. remember that hashem never disregard what you say he either esponds Yes, not yet, or, I have a better plan. not that we always understand the plan….
we have discussed Alter Shimon Yechezkel ben Rochel Chanah in the coffee room, how about a kvittel for a yeshuah for him
Poverty is indeed a challenge. I make a game with myself about repurposing food and saving leftovers. for example last nights rice becomes tonights stuffing for chicken etc. Also I find that the less frequently I grocery shop the less I spend on food -it works out cheaper than running to different stores for metziahs. Also be sureyou are getting the govt assistance you are entitled to given your honest income level,
I think that because everyones idea of intelligence is different these days the literacy test idea may be a dangerous mechanism to allowing onnly people with a particular belief system or cultural slant to vote. Also, very bright and highly intelligent and informed people may suffer from LD or language deficits.

Im wondering why you need a non-academic environment? are you disinterested in learning? do you consider yourself an incapable student? Maybe you will do fine in academic setting given proper support and motivation. IMHO there is nobody like Rabbi Burstein try Bais Yaakov LA. You will of course need boarding arrangements
I think that training in maturity and responsibility not to mention basic human decency is lacking if a twenty year old person cannot be trusted to get married. mentchen can get maried at twenty self centered narcissictic types not so muchJuly 28, 2015 10:18 am at 10:18 am in reply to: Seminary-ish experiance without Seminary?

I would encourage you to strive to develop and grow as a person your whole life. Consider a series of recorded lectures that you can listen to during your commute time. Most of those lecturers will be glad to reach out to you. It doesnt seem so realistic with the tremendous comitment of college that you will have the forbearance to actually attend classes while getting used to college
