10:31 pm - ATTN: students with a .edu email address

Amazon is offering a free 1 year subscription to Amazon Prime (Free 2 day shipping, $3.99 overnight shipping): http://amzn.to/bSH8jP

This is being marketed towards college students but all you need is a valid .edu email address, so teachers and alumni can benefit from this too!

Now is a time that I wish I was still in college. Oh well, what can you do?

Greetings NC!

So it looks like my man and I will be moving to Chapel Hill.
Looking for recommendations:




Breakfast place (crepes?)


Bakery (French in particular)

Used bookshop

Thrift Shops (Savers? Goodwill?)

Clubs (preferably of the goth/industrial variety although I like to go out dancing to all sorts of music so if it's not of the goth.industrial variety then I'll need a club buddy ;) My guy doesn't like those as much)


Hairdresser (preferably of the great and cheap variety)

Hula Hoop community (I'm on hoopcity and have been making some great connections there)

Temp Agency as I will be looking for work as soon as I get there

Are there any casinos in the area?

ok...I think that's it for now, I'll post again if we think of anything else.

Thank in advance!!!

4:52 pm - Moving

Hello NC!

My boyfriend got hired to teach at UNC and Duke so we'll be moving to NC in August. 
We're looking at Durham and Chapel Hill or somewhere in between.
Preferably an apartment complex of some sort that is someplace quiet and not too close to students(nothing against students, they just tend to be loud in general)
He has a car but I only have a bike so preferably someplace close to a bus line.
Speaking of...how is the bus system in that area?
We're moving from Tucson, AZ and the bus system here Rocks.
Is NC bike friendly? Bike lines?
I already know that the hoop community is fairly large in that area and I'm super excited to meet the local hoopers.
Any and all suggestions, comments, opinions are appreciated.
I'm sure I'll have more questions the closer the move is.
Thank you!

7:33 pm - Rental in Chapel Hill

I'm looking at being homeless as of August 1, so I need to find somewhere to live.  My current lease ends on July 31st and I don't have anywhere to live yet.  My original plan fell through because the other people living there don't want a cat in the house.  So here is what I'm looking for:

--Cat allowed.  I have one young, sweet cat.
--Preferably short-term (month-to-month, three months, six months) but I may consider a one year lease
--Chapel Hill...or surrounding area
--max $500/month
--Furnished would be great, but not necessary
--My own bedroom, and other shared living spaces
--Prefer roommates, but willing to live in a 1 bedroom
--Safe neighborhood

Anyone know of a place that matches this?  Or good websites, newspapers, etc. to look at?  I've been trolling Craigslist daily and haven't had much luck.

9:41 pm - charging rent

I am buying a house in Hillsborough and will hopefully be renting out a room, but I'm not sure how much to charge in rent. I'm looking through craigslist but have seen nothing else in Hillsborough. Anybody have any suggestions or ideas for how I can figure this out? I was planning $300 or $400 for 2 people sharing the room, but people are telling me that's too low.

2:03 pm - Ben Kweller rideshare

Hey kids-- I have one ticket to Ben Kweller's concert at Cat's Cradle tomorrow (opening act is Watson Twins, show starts at 9pm) and I'm not going to be able to use it because I've got s no car to drive me there (I was going to walk, but it's going to raaaaain).

Is anyone going to the concert that wants to give me a ride? I live 4 minutes away and just can't walk up Greensboro in the dark, wet night. I'm not axe murderer-- I'm a UNC grad student who likes going to concerts and meeting cool people. I'll buy you a beer!!

1:30 pm - Art students take note

Howdy, I'm graduating this semester, and in preparation for moving into an even smaller apartment I'm selling my screen printing setup. This was a great hobby for a student, and I even did some printing out of a dorm room my freshman year. If anyone has done some printing and is looking for a press, or is interested in learning check out: http://raleigh.craigslist.org/bfs/976405369.html

yggdrasill I have a question about registration stops. I returned this semester under partial medical clearance and thought a stop would be placed back on my record come registration time, but nothing happened. If these kinds of stops activate at the end of the semester, should I bother registering now if I'm unsure of being able to submit my required info in time? Will I be dropped from the courses I registered for once the stop becomes effective or will they carry over into January? Would I be able to access the system to drop them myself? Just wondering if anyone here had experience with this. Thanks!

11:25 am - RELI 135 and 240

I've got yet another question about classes.  I'm registering for my final semester at UNC and, of course, I left all the crap classes till the end.  I still have to do my upper-level philosophical requirement, so I'm trying to decide between these two:

RELI 135 [088] Technology, the Self, and Ethical Problems (3). Problems in the study of ethics in the new worlds of information technology. (taught by R W Tyson)

RELI 240 [068] Religion, Literature, and the Arts in America (3). A study of religious ideas and cultural forms in America through an examination of a variety of genres including novels, poetry, essays, and sermons. (taught by Brandi Denison)

Has anyone taken either of these?  Any info, recommendations, syllabi?  Any info on the professors?

2:55 pm - movers

I have heard that sometimes there are students that help you move. I can't wade through all the crap on craigslist to find these little gems. I went back through pages and pages and couldn't find any. So I ask, is there anyone here that either is, or knows of students that help move people? Or anyone that wants to help my fiance and I out this coming weekend? food, beer, money, whatever, we'll figure something out.

the back story is that he works all weekend so it's basically up to me to get the majority taken care of. single story basement apartment in Chapel Hill to a 2 story townhouse also in Chapel Hill and about 5-6 miles apart. If you don't have a truck, we will certainly rent one to use.

I have submitted for estimates from both Two Men and a Truck and TROSA.. i'm waiting for them. however, i'd rather help out some students with drinking money! ;o)

Wonderful news! The 1826-1993 volumes of the Journal für die Reine und Angewandte Mathematik located here in the Brauer Math/Physics library is now barcoded (as well as many other titles), compliments of yours truly. So you can feel free to come by and check them out. And while you're here, why not peruse our other 200-year-old mathematical serials with brittle disintegrating pages in languages you can't read?

This is just one of the many fabulous resources (funded by you and your friendly state tax-payers!) your library system has to offer. Just wanted to let you know that we are spending that money. Don't you worry!

Edited to add:
Can't read German? No problem! Most of the articles in these journals are in Latin!

2:44 pm - Creative Writing Program

Hi all,
Any Creative Writing kids out there?  I'm hoping to submit a story to the department to be considered for the Advanced Fiction Writing course, and they ask each applicant whether we're CW minors or not. I'm not declared, but I still want to take the class(es), so my question is: Does anyone know if non-minors are pretty much automatically black-balled out of taking the upper-level Creative Writing courses?

Thanks ~
