Topics I've Started

Need Opinions: Living On Campus Vs Living At Home

28 February 2009 - 03:49 PM

I'll be a freshman in the fall and I was blessed enough to get a full-ride scholarship to a private university. I can live on campus for free and be exempt from the meal plan because of celiac disease. The university is in my hometown, just 5 or so miles from my house. I'm leaning towards living at home, but, I'd like to hear opinions & experiences from other people.

The only concerns I have is there's one bathroom per hall and rooming with a non-celiac (unless I can scout for a gluten-free roomie...)
All my friends are saying living on campus for that "college experience" but, I'm not so convinced. I plan on joining SGA and pledging with Alpha Sigma Tau to get involved around campus.

Any thoughts would be appreciated :]

Female Issues.

01 February 2009 - 11:19 AM


I was wondering if some of you ladies could give some insight. I've missed two my periods and the last period I had was in mid-November. It concerns me, considering my periods are extremely painful w/ heavy bleeding, lasting always 7+ days then suddenly there's nothing. For the past month and a half, I've experienced severe lower right abdomen pain and severe pelvic pain, that sometimes goes into the small of my back. Could this possibly be an ovarian cyst? There's no chance of pregnancy, as I've never been sexually active.

I've also gained 20 lbs and had a bladder infection. I just went in Friday for blood work and an X-ray.

Any thoughts would be appreciated :]

Does anyone listen to them? I absolutely love Andrew McMahon. I can't wait until The Glass Passenger releases September 30th---my 18th birthday! It's the ultimate gift, ever!


Matteo's Pizza In Brentwood, Tn

07 September 2008 - 07:15 PM

I recently did a search on gluten-free restuarants near Nashville and I came up with Matteo's Pizza. They have a dedicated room for all the gluten-free pizzas and such.

I was wondering if anyone's ever been there and what you think of it. My 18th birthday is September 30th and I really want to go to this place to celebrate!

My Friends Tigger & Pooh Corn Puff Cereal?

04 August 2008 - 11:09 AM

I was shopping at Walmart the other and I went down the cereal aisle, expecting to get my usual box of Fruity Pebbles when I ran into these!

It's my Friends Tigger & Pooh cereal, a show little kid show on Disney. The cereal is produced by General Mills. I got to reading and it looks gluten-free to me. Here's the ingredients:

Whole grain corn, corn meal, sugar, modified corn starch, corn syrup, canola and/or rice brain oil, salt, tricalcium phosphate, trisodium phosphate, yellow 6. Vitamin 5 (mixed tocopherols) added to perserve freshness.

I just wanted to double-check. It seems almost too good to be true :D They taste like Captain Crunch only a little bit softer.
