Open Question: Should young women "not
What are your thoughts on her advice?? Are young women trying to do too much by going to university build a career and start a family by the age of 35? Are women risking "missing the baby boat" by not starting their families by their mid thirties (when fertility starts to decline) or should more girls be encouraged to go to university and have a career, even if it means they may be sacrificing having children?

Resolved Question: What is the song about
When I was younger I would listen to this song all the time, it was about a young girl and boy who were great friends, and the girl would always tell the boy all her secrets about how she was abused and such. Now he is singing about how he is regretting not telling anyone about it because now she is dead...
Does anyone remember a song like that? I think it was a sung by a band, not a solo artist, but I'm not sure. I really loved that song, can anyone think of the name, or the artist? Thanks :)

Resolved Question: Good books for young
Any genre but mystery and horror.
Adult books as well please. I dislike classical books and the house of night series I have read and didn't like it at all. I have no preferences really. My favorite type of books are paranormal, fantasy, dark fantasy, humor, romance, and sad ones.
