Get a quick two cents worth... Posted on 03-02-2007
jpbray

YoungPhenom4theFuture is all over the forums on issues ranging from moving too fast in a relationship to struggling with making you happy vs. everybody else over your college choice. She's still discovering, just like you, but most of the time, she's got some good insight. Occasionally she and NeoSoul get together on an issue, and it's DONE... Real good second opinions. Old school and New school, but foundational stuff is timeless. Use this thread to post a quick life question and get a quick answer. YoungPhenom4theFuture promises a quick reaction time, so let's try it out with a couple of questions and see what happens... 1. You responded to a 40something year old guy trying to make the choice whether to move a girlfriend in, recently. How do you know life stuff and you are still so young. 2. Did grandma raise you? 3. What's your circle of friends like? Are you the one that has to be the voice of reason or... NOT? 4. Tell us a little about yourself and what you feel most comfortable talking about... so I can throw my Life Questions at ya.

This isn't a question for her as much as it is... JB, are you okay?! The news is all over the place about the tornados that hit down there!

Yea, I'm good. I'm online with all of the free daytime, listening to the sirens. fyi for whoever checks in, we're talking about Enterprise, AL. My little city got on the map yesterday, when a tornado hit. Our one highschool is demolished. Lot's of kids injured and more than 10 dead yesterday alone, contrary to reports. Those families are the ones to keep in your prayers...

You responded to a 40something year old guy trying to make the choice whether to move a girlfriend in, recently. How do you know life stuff and you are still so young. Well I just celebrated my eighteenth birthday, so yea I am really young, but I've always believed that I have an old folks soul. I think that people consider me a voice of reason not because I've gone through all 20 million things I talk about, but I've observed people who have. Just watching people go through different experiences helps me focus my life. You can say I'm living vicariously through others. 2. Did grandma raise you? Hmm...in a big way she did. Me and my mom moved to NY to be with my grandmother when I was about 7 years old, so she's definitely had a huge impact on my life. My mother of course taught me everything I know, and gave me a set of morals and ethics that have gotten me to where I am now. 3. What's your circle of friends like? Are you the one that has to be the voice of reason or... NOT? My friends are all real good kids. Like...I'm so proud of them because we're all headed towards really great places in our lives. Some of them have had a couple of rough patches, but through it all we've been there for each other. Everybody knows that when it goes down, that I'm basically going to be the one to hold stuff down. That's just the type of person I am though. I'm always having to talk sense into somebody trying to do something stupid but one thing I don't do, is give advice that's unwanted. That's like my self proclaimed life work. 4. Tell us a little about yourself and what you feel most comfortable talking about... so I can throw my Life Questions at ya. Hmm...Well my name is Jennifer. I guess I should have told ya that earlier but oh well. I'm from Long Island, New York and will be attending Hampton University in the fall. I am a real relaxed type person about most things (I try to be at least) and I try my hardest not to be judgemental, so trust that any situations told to me will given the fairest opinion that I can muster. I'm kind of a perfectionist so please guys, bare with me.

Ok, let me try out this advice forum.... Um, issues of life, let me see. Here's one I have, this is feeling like truth or dare Ok, so my issue is that I get a lot of feedback that I am not social enough. I act like I'm old, I need to relax more, too serious, lalala... Of course I don't agree, but, I'm not big on group interaction. I LOVE work and I'm content hanging out with my closest, closest friends/family and most everybody else on a social note, I see when I see. What's wrong with that? Why do people make me feel guilty for being busy? or is it just me feeling guilty and avoiding the issue? What are the dangers of NOT dating? Not hanging out? What is the purpose of small talk? How much time should you spend being recreational? Give me some advice.

If you're comfortable with who you are, don't change it for anybody. If you don't want to party, or date, then that's cool. Other people really don't have the power to make you feel anything, guilty or otherwise. They don't know you well enough for that. You seem happy with yourself, and trust me, cause in the end that is going to be worth it. However on the flipside, if you're not actively going out and dating, then it might be a bit more difficult to meet the person for you. Just playing devil's advocate for you...gotta present all the facts. I'm a strong believer that you meet the best people, in the most everyday places, so I'm not saying that's a huge deal either, because it isn't. The time you have on your own, has got to be special for you, not for your company. So if you'd rather spend more of your free time on your own, doing your own thing then that's you. I hope I was able to give you a little help.

1. You responded to a 40something year old guy trying to make the choice whether to move a girlfriend in, recently. How do you know life stuff and you are still so young. I really cant answer this question so okay NEXT. 2. Did grandma raise you? Yes my grandmother raised me. I never had either my mother or father and I don't know what either of them are doing so, yeah she raised me. 3. What's your circle of friends like? Are you the one that has to be the voice of reason or... NOT? I only have one friend. I am usually the voice of reason because she grts into a lot of stuff. I am the level headed one of the two us. 4. Tell us a little about yourself and what you feel most comfortable talking about... so I can throw my Life Questions at ya. im caramel complected 5'3 185 lbs. I am very ambitious and outgoing. I am planning on going to school for pre-veterinary medicine and business management. I plan to own my own businesses ranging from restaurants, bed and breakfasts, retail stores, and veterinary clinics internationally. I never had my mom or dad and still don't. I've lived with my grandmother for tha majority of my life. I kept nothing but 4.0's in my last two years of high school. Ans I really don't know what else to say. So i'll add on lata.
