New ground rules: Friends dating friends are not allowed.

One of my closest friends is dating Mr. Ismi's best friend, and now the arguments and conflict are getting worse. We got along perfectly for YEARS before this, but of course she feels that she must side with her boyfriend (don't blame her, although I think he's wrong). It was really awkward to talk to her yesterday.  :mad:

Another one of Mr. Ismi's friends just asked about one of MY other friends. We haven't divulged it to either party but they have both been interested in each other for months. We never said anything because his guy friend was in a relationship at a time.

I am tired of our friends hooking up and I wish I could institute a no-dating rule.  :p Everyone told us that it would be great for all of us to hang out together, but I feel like everyone is just getting resentful of the other person's original friend.

Wow, how confusing was this post?!

Tell me about it, hopefully it'll all be a bit more relaxed by then and we'll be able to joke about it.

I signed up for an art class last year, with the focus being the nude human body. Everyone took a turn being the model for the rest of the class. This was the reaction when I was the nude model:

From the look on their faces, why should we doubt his word?  :D

Is turning down a $300,000 a year pro soccer contract to stay in school and get my degree a dumb idea? Because my whole family thinks so...

LOL Good point. Although, I am not sure if that's a positive statement or an insult.  ;)

The thing is if you were to drop college and go pro, who knows what could happen in the future? Atleast you know more about your future in school than out of it.

300K a year is alot of dough, my good friend plays for the Carolina Panthers and only makes around 100k-ish, yeah he's a rookie too.

How long is that contract?

Online school is a possibility, but there are big risks with being an athlete. Don't necessarily think it's stupid, but a tough decision to make.

Congrats on the contract!

And it's only 1 year, with an option of 2 more depending.

Couldn't you go back to school later?

Also, wouldn't your contract include clauses to ditch a lot of the other sporting stuff you do? 
I could...but I doubt I would...I know myself too well. lol

And heck yeah. Id have to practically stop doing other sports.
