Sounds like a 'ton' of money

the-mushroomqueen asked:

I really really really want to start doing yoga because it looks like a lot of fun and therefor a type of exercise I could stick with. But idk which type of yoga to do or anything and i don't have the time or money to take a class. I'm going to be a senior in high school so my days are going to be way too busy as I get ready for college come august. Are there any good websites or anything?

There are tons of awesome free yoga classes/tutorials on youtube! One of my favorites is “Yoga by Candace” :) The type of yoga you do depends on what you want to get out of it! You sound like you want to get a workout out of it so I would probably start out with something like Vinyasa Flow or power yoga :)

Do doctors make enough money?

I don’t know what to do. I want to become a physician, but I hear medicine does not equal money. I want to work in healthcare, I do like lab work. Money is big factor not in the sense of bragging about it, but in the sense of financial stability. I’ve seen what not enough money can do. Are there any jobs in healthcare that are good for having a big salary? I don’t mean to sound snobbish. Thank you for the help!!

Ok, here’s the deal. When we say “medicine doesn’t equal money,” we mean that medicine doesn’t equal easy filthy riches. We incur a TON of debt before we are able to practice and then it takes us years to pay it off, so our big salaries don’t seem as big after taxes and loan payments. If you want big money quickly, go into business or something, not medicine.

But that is not to say that we aren’t financially stable. I don’t know what your definition of “big salary” is, but all medical specialties make at least $150,000 a year, which is more than most people in this country make. Lots of other jobs in healthcare also bring in more than adequate salary - like PA, NP, nursing, and healthcare administration to name a few.

Be careful with the “not enough money” mentality. Sure, there are some salaries that it is literally impossible to live off of. But even a resident’s salary is liveable and comfortable for a family if you manage your money well. I am perfectly comfortable with my current salary. Sure, I can’t go out and spend extravagantly, but I have everything I need and have enough left over to buy nice things I want here and there too. 

I work with a resident for whom nothing is enough. He moonlights illegally and rarely every has a day off because he is all about paychecks. He makes almost 3 times what the rest of us do because of all his moonlighting. But he’s obviously miserable. He’s angry all the time and only smiles when he buys a new fancy toy. Don’t be that person, please. Learn now how to be responsible with your money now so that no matter what your salary is you can manage. 

I never told anyone they wouldn’t make as much money as me but it wouldn’t be far from the truth if not the truth because i make a fuck ton of money. to put it simply i own 3 large homes, a business, SEVERAL new, high end luxury cars and my only used car is a 2006 Porsche Carrera GT. I’m not even sure i did that before. I mean i might’ve at some point it does sound like something i would say but only to anons or some shit and that doesn’t count or someone being a complete cunt. So, citation please? Who needs to get a job when i’m self employed and own your own business. Hell, at this point i could fucking retire at 20. Hell i could’ve retired at 19 if i wanted. Also if you missed the part where i said “I dropped out of college” you’re not even reading everything, you’re skimming for shit to try and start shit and be like “well you said this” when you don’t read for context.

hello there! my name’s mollie, and i’m a twenty-year old college student. currently, i’m living with my boyfriend jimmy in a tiny apartment right off our campus. we’d been doing okay with paying bills and rent and such, but recently we’ve had a few hardships and we’re really struggling.

i’ve set up a gofundme page to help with paying bills. i know it may sound like a sellout, but i’m really at the end of my rope. i work two jobs and i still don’t make enough (neither gives me a lot of hours). jimmy is having a rough time finding a job and needs help staying afloat until he can find one. i’m selling some of my possessions as well to help pay. 

i’m not asking for a ton of money, and even if we don’t reach the goal, it doesn’t matter. every little amount is going to help us out a lot. at this point, i’m starting to get desperate, and i’m scared we may have to start using our food money to get bills paid. if you can donate, that would be amazing, and if you can’t, that’s ok too. if you could just share, get the word out, anything, we would be forever grateful. thank you for taking the time to read!

Hey I've been thinking about going back to school and getting my bachelor degree in music production and recording. Weighing out my options currently though. Wondering if it's worth it to have a bachelor's over an associates in this field. Looking to get opportunities in live sound, teaching, maybe something like creative live? Would a company like creative live look for someone with a bachelor's in music? Hoping you could provide some insight.

Here’s the thing with music: having a degree in it certainly won’t hurt, but it won’t really help you a ton either. Only a few people I know who work in music went to school for it, and almost all of them think that in hindsight, school was a waste of their time and money. What matters most is how good your work is, and who you have worked with.

I would save your money, and instead of going to school, just watch CreativeLive/read forums, and spend every waking moment making music and/or networking. Spend a couple of years doing that and you will be way better than anyone who just went to recording school (people who go to recording school are kind of a joke in the industry for this exact reason).

I'm from Canada and flights are suuuuper expensive!! but a cheap thing to do if you have a lot of time is fly to somewhere in Europe, once you're actually there flying/trains/bus tours are actually so cheap and if you stay in France then there are a ton of countries around that you can pay like $100 to go to!!

that’s still a lot of money and then the airfares to actually get there is like $700 minimum??? and passports?? I just didn’t really get the post, sounded like the guy grew up in a middle class family and thinks he knows what he’s doing but doesn’t realise the advantages he’s had but it’s ok because I’ll travel no matter what one day

hii!! i wanted to ask if ro is free to play! u talk a lot abt that and it sounds fun! :D

aaah well it depends tbh! iRO, the official english server, is free to play! though payments options exist, signing up and stuff it’s free so don’t worry about money! i had to myself ton to do a lot of research to sign on the official server (since private servers are 100% free to play, sometimes with higher exp rate than the official one, but neverthless i’ve only played on a private one and on the official one, both at once aHAHAHA)

also i think you’ll like it! though leveling up is very painful at first (due to its 1/1/1 exp rate), the game itself has a fun gameplay style with cute graphics and very fun storylines! trust me, some quests may be really painful but its worth it! im still yet looking forward to complete all the quests though, but ill do it someday!

here is some useful links!

aslo check the iro guide for the job classes informations and the forums for builds! its better to have a basic notion of how the job class thing works here so you won’t screw up your first character c:

jaqc13 replied to your post: Figuring out what you need to transfer…

Isn’t it in your course catalog? Not to seem like an ass, but it’s usually upfront isn’t it?

Yes but the thing about that is that colleges have different classes. Typically if they sound similar you’re in the clear but sometimes universities refuse to accept the credit for the sole reason it’s not theirs and they insist on being super picky about it.

So I’m just trying to double check on everything to make sure that I’m not about to waste a ton of money on classes I don’t need. So not only do I have to talk to my current advisor but I’m trying to schedule a time for me to go up to the university that I will be eventually transferring to to make sure that everything is straight and that I didn’t fuck up anything.

Granted it’d be an easy fix even if I did but I’m really trying not to waste money here. The whole point of me attending community college is to save money not spend a whole lot of it.

Spent a fuck ton of money on the one car today (Mom’s car), and still can’t really drive it. Pulleys are fucked by the sound of it (hello high-pitched screeching while accelerating), another belt is going, and there’s a short in a wire causing a cylinder to misfire, resulting in what can only be described as an engine stutter (feels like it’s trying to stall). Also found out that the transmission gasket is leaking fluid.

This is just the stuff that WASN’T fixed today.

So that car’s just gonna stay in the garage until Mom and Dad come back from vacation and we can get it serviced at the dealership.

The little blue oven of a car has a minor squeak starting, but it doesn’t seem as much “OH GOD WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE” than the other car. I also need to put some air in a tire. I did buy a steering wheel cover for B.B. since she spends her days out in the sun. Makes a world of difference, but DAMN that thing was hard to get on.

Oh, and B.B. definitely needs engine coolant and a new door handle. I hate having to roll down the window to open the door. Admittedly, I just decided to drive with the AC off and the window open because of both putting less pressure on the heated engine and because it styles my hair nicely.

B.B. needs a ton of cosmetic work done. But if Ferdinand can get fixed, we might just trade in B.B. for a new car at some point.

I’m just so done with dealing with car issues for one vacation. Fortunately, I’ll only really be going out on Friday and next Tuesday before I have to drive to take the CBEST, which is the thing that co concerns me the most.

College Students: Renting vs. Buying A Home In Springfield, MO

Springfield, Missouri is a great place to live, especially for college students! Missouri State University (MSU), Drury University, Ozark Technical Community College (OTC), and Evangel University attract thousands of talented college students to the city. Although living on campus can be great, parents and students may wish to consider buying a house instead of renting an apartment or living in student housing.

We know what you’re thinking … A college student? Buying a house? That sounds a little crazy. BUT, it’s not. We have sold homes like this.

Springfield has a lot of businesses and is a great place for young entrepreneurs. If a student wants to stay in Springfield after completing her or his degree, buying a house while she or he is in school could save a ton of money! For example, at Drury, a four bedroom apartment in College Park (the largest apartment complex on campus) plus 45 cafeteria meals cost each student in the apartment $3,863 per semester, which breaks down to about $700 a month. That means, the university is charging about $15,000 per apartment each semester. Breaking that down, a student who had three roommates that paid the same rent that they would in on-campus housing could have a mortgage that was $3000 a month. According to Zillow, with only $5,000 down, and $3,000 a month payment, you could buy a house worth nearly half-a-million dollars!!! Considering most college students won’t need or want nearly that much house, buying a reasonably priced house can definitely save you money. A student can either graduate with debt and a degree, or they can graduate with debt and a degree and a house–plus the equity they’ve built in the house.

Whether you buy a house for yourself or for your child, it can be a great real estate investment. Investopedia lists college towns, like Springfield, as great places to invest in real estate. If you’re looking at Springfield homes, contact us! We can help!

We think the colleges in Springfield offer some of the best educations available! After all, Drury is ranked #8 for Midwestern universities and MSU is one of the top public schools in the Midwest! Come to school in Springfield, and buy a house to make HOME in Springfield!

Everyone is just so salty about the fact that Taylor is as wealthy as she is. I’ve seen so much incoherent rage about it since the Apple thing, and honestly it’s kind of funny to me, because Taylor’s decisions, in summary are: “hey, this is my job. I put a lot of time and effort and work into it. Because it’s a job. This is also OTHER people’s careers. We should all be paid for our jobs. Thanks.” Like??? Just because she’s rich doesn’t mean she shouldn’t be paid for doing work anymore? Like, for the people complaining, what is your ideal cut off point where you think people shouldn’t be paid for doing work anymore. Ballpark a number.  Let’s apply that to everyone. From the CEO of major corporations like Apple, to the people running for president who HAVE to have tons of money to campaign, and on and on and on. Sounds pretty ridiculous right? And she donates her money to legitimate and helpful causes all the time. You know what the real problem is? All of the wealthy people and companies all over the world that have literally no interest in human causes. People who use that for legitimate harm and are legitimately greedy. Maybe take a step back for a second. 

Here's why you can't just push a dead body out into outer space

The same microbes that grow on cheese can also grow inside a Mars simulation chamber.

That might not sound like a big deal. But what if those microbes somehow made it to the real Mars?

We’ve launched tons of spacecraft, probes, and rovers to the red planet, all potentially carrying a few microbes from Earth.

Accidentally contaminating Mars could have big consequences. It might trick us into thinking we’ve discovered life on Mars when it’s actually just Earth-grown stowaways.

But in some sense we’ve already contaminated it.

“Every mission to Mars makes it dirtier,” Catharine Conley, a planetary protection officer at NASA, told Business Insider.

Why NASA has a celestial sheriff

Conley probably has the coolest job title at NASA, but it comes with a huge responsibility.

A planetary protection officer is charged with making sure we don’t contaminate the rest of the universe with life from Earth. And, even more importantly, the reverse — to make sure we don’t bring any alien microbes home.

The job was created because of an international law called the Outer Space Treaty of 1967. Specifically, Article IX is what a planetary protection officer worries about. Mostly just this one sentence:

“States Parties to the Treaty shall pursue studies of outer space, including the moon and other celestial bodies, and conduct exploration of them so as to avoid their harmful contamination and also adverse changes in the environment of the Earth resulting from the introduction of extraterrestrial matter and, where necessary, shall adopt appropriate measures for this purpose.”

That’s why you couldn’t just shove the body of your astronaut friend out of the airlock if he or she died during space travel. There’s a chance (a very small chance) that the body could drift to an alien world and colonize it with Earth microbes.

Even unmanned space exploration missions have to address contamination risk, but it’s pretty impossible to completely sterilize spacecraft and space probes before they leave Earth. So the creators of the Outer Space Treaty decided that risk was worth what we could learn from exploring the universe.

They settled on a 1-in-10,000 risk. That means any space exploration mission must have less than a 1-in-10,000 chance of contaminating an alien world.

“It’s a moderate level,” Conley said. “It’s not extremely careful, but it’s not extremely lax.”

Problem #1: Bringing Earth to alien worlds

Mars has bared the brunt of human meddling. It’s unlikely any spacecraft that landed there was 100% sterile.

NASA sends its spaceships and rovers through a microbe-killing heat blast, but recent evidence shows that some particularly hardy microbes can survive.

The good news is that Mars (and most of the rest of the solar system) seems pretty hostile to life. So anything we’ve carried there isn’t going to flourish even if it survived the journey.

NASA’s Viking missions pretty much confirmed that at least the surface of Mars isn’t conducive to life. It’ll most likely kill off any bacteria that land on Martian soil. So now anything that goes to Mars has about as many microbes as a human hand, since the risk of contamination is so low.

There are, however, a few promising potential homes for life in our solar system, including Jupiter’s moon Europa and Saturn’s moon Enceladus. Any mission that comes close to either of those moons is treated with a lot of caution, Conley said.

For example, the European Space Agency’s (ESA) upcoming mission to Jupiter needs special attention, since that probe will fly so close to Europa, Conley said.

ESA wants to make a couple of very tight passes around Europa, but only if its spacecraft, named the Jupiter Icey moons Explorer (JUICE), proves it has excellent control — crash-landing on Europa simply isn’t an option.

To mitigate that risk, ESA will first command JUICE to make a few test orbits around Jupiter. If all seems well, they'll program the spacecraft to fly by Europa a few times, gathering a bunch of data in the process, then return back into orbit around Jupiter.

So what would happen if we did contaminate somewhere in our solar system with Earth microbes — and ones that could survive on an alien world? A clean-up mission would be too expensive. The bottom line is that we “recognize that there is a risk of failure,” Conley said. We take the risk, Conley said, because what we gain from space exploration is worth it.

We’re exploring as carefully and as smartly as we know how, but eventually places like Mars — despite being so hostile to life — might end up too contaminated for certain types of microbe-hunting scientific experiments.

Problem #2: Bringing aliens to Earth

Bringing Earth microbes to an alien world would be bad, but the reverse scenario is a much bigger concern, Conley said. We don’t want to accidentally bring something nasty, like the fictional Andromeda Strain, to humanity’s only haven.

So making sure we don’t contaminate Earth with extra-terrestrial microbes is the highest priority of a planetary protection officer.

As space agencies plan more and more missions out into the Solar System, it’s becoming a serious concern.

For example, if Mars astronauts got infected with something while on Mars, should we bring them back to Earth? The short answer is no, Conley said during a talk at the recent Humans to Mars Summit in Washington, D.C.

The Apollo program, in fact, set up a quarantine facility to receive the first astronauts who returned from the moon, since they were covered in moon dust. Moon rock samples were cautiously sent to biosafety labs. We soon learned the moon didn’t harbor any life, so later missions didn’t use the same kind of rigorous screening.

But when we bring people and samples back from still unexplored worlds like Mars, we’ll need to exercise the same kind of caution. And we have a lot of policy and protocol to establish before that happens.

The United Nations, ethicists, and lawyers are already meeting to discuss the best way to handle future manned missions.
