sunglasses

I read an article once about what type of sunglasses you should buy according to the shape of your face. It had pictures of a round face, a square face, and oval face, and a heart face I think, and what shape lenses to buy according to your type. Anyone ever heard of this or know what I'm talking about? If you have any information or have read the article could you let me know? BTW, I have a round face, so I'd be asking for suggestions based on that.

hi...

OK, well, I was going to go on here to ask for suggestions about something, but then I realized it only has to do with Flagler college, but hell, I'll try anyway. We had our first PRSSA (public relations student society of america) meeting this evening, and we were trying to come up with an idea for an event or two to hold on campus, that we could promote (because that's what we do...we promote and publicize), that we could actually get students to come out to. What would interest students enough to make them participate?

Things to consider:

-it needs to be on campus
-it can't involve alcohol
-we would need to raise money in some way
-it needs to be exciting enough to pull in people who live off campus too

How would we raise money? What charity or organization do you believe the proceeds should go to?

List of things we were talking about doing:

-a dance
-a cancer walk
-halloween movie night

For those of you who aren't familiar with Flagler College, it's a realtively small campus with about 2,000 students, and it's a dry campus, no inter-dorm vistitation between girls and guys, and is full of artsy, laid back beach people.

Thanks!!!!

Books

I always have a hard time finding books that I really like, and that's probably why I dont' read as much as I want tom well besides lack of time and bleh de bleh bleh.

Anyway, here are some of my favorite books, and I'd like suggestions of books I may like.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime by Mark Haddon
Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden
The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde
Tripmaster Monkey by Maxine Hong Kingston
Geisha, a Life by Mineko Iwasaki
Hairstyles of the Damned by Joe Meno
Beowulf
Pygmalion by George Bernard Shaw
the Oz series by L. Frank Baum

And if it helps, here's some books I absolutely hated

Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy
Great Expectations by Charles Dickens
A Collection of Beauties by Whitney Otto
Pandora by Anne Rice

I tend to like books that take place in the time period as the time it was written. You can tell. Of course, the exception was Memoirs of a Geisha because it was very well written and somethingt that I knew nothing about the first time I read it. I don't like series of books usually, Oz being an exception because they are easy reads that don't take too long. I haven't read many fantasies because they generally don't interest me. See, I like stories that are real and relatable, and you can either have a fiction that could actaully happen, or you can have something really creative but not too fantastical. I like stories with good and believable character development. Any suggestions?

from Seventeen Magazine:

1) Take a road trip
2) Learn to play an instrument

I'd really like to do these things. I'm going to take this very seriously and try to accomplish it all. Except for the waitressing one. I'd like to replace that one with something else. Does anyone have any suggestions (especially people who are 21 or older) as to what YOU'D recommend doing before turning 21? FYI, I'll turn 20 in October, so I have a little over a year to accomplish everything. Thanks!

collages

So I have, well, I'm going to eventually have 4 collages I would like to get laminated or protected in some other way. I have two right now, and I'm also working on two others. I am still pricing lamination with various places. Kinkos was $30 per square inch! So I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to any other way besides lamination I could protect my collages. Or, if you can think of anywhere besides Staples, Office Max, or Office Depot to do lamination let me know. I'm also getting prices from local places here too. Thank you!

exercise

distance
Ok, so I finally thought of something legitimate to ask about...so I bike ride at least 4 times a week. I listen to my I-Pod while I ride to make it more fun, but when I get tired of my music, I'm less inclined to go, besides, I'd like to do something else besides ride my bike all the time you know? I like swimming, but I don't have access to a pool all that regularly. I'm not that big on running, but I do power walk. I can't afford to go to a gym. Suggestions on exercise methods, please and thank you!
