Need Help Finding A Textbook!

I have to take this management course for college and I need Management: Skills & Applications 14th edition by Leslie Rue and Lloyd Byars.

I bought the 13th edition used online super cheap, but my instructor assigned us questions in the book and mine, I do believe, don’t match. I really don’t want to have to go out and buy another stupid book, especially new at shelf price. (That’s over $120 for what? To answer a few questions throughout the semester? I’m not spending what little money I have left on something like that. It’s a bunch of shit.)

Does anyone have a link for a pdf/ebook/torrent download?

OR, if you do happen to have the book, maybe message me the questions I need?

Please?

We need to remember what’s important in life: friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn’t matter, but work is third.

Marley

nickname: 
Marley is my nickname and what I prefer people to call me most of the time. Also Mar, but not that often.

birthday: 
April 30th

sexuality: 
Straight

height: 
5’ 0”

timezone:

what time and date is it here:

Average hours of sleep I get at night:
About 7 - 8, sometimes 9 or 10 on the weekend when I’m super tired.

the last thing I googled was:
Conversion factors for temperatures, I think.

my most used phrase:
Hm… I’m not really sure. Probably “What the fuck?” or something to that extent.

first word that comes to mind:
Awesomesauce. Don’t ask me why.

what I last said to a family member: 
I’ll talk to you later.

one place that makes me happy and why: 
There’s this particular street in the city I used to go to community college at, and which I frequented when I lived with my parents because we did nearly all our shopping there. It’s a quaint, but busy street, filled with culture and cute shops and cafes and eating places and there’s constantly little events and festivals and such going on there. I know a lot of cities have similar districts/streets, but this one has always struck me the most. I don’t know what there is about it, but going there always makes me happy. I miss it. I really do.

how many blankets I sleep under:
At the moment, only the sheet. It’s been too hot for a comforter here. I usually sleep with the sheet and comforter though. Sometimes a throw blanket on top.

favourite beverages: 
Tea, coconut water

the last movie I watched in the cinema: 
How To Train Your Dragon 2

three things I can’t live without: 
Water, family, and love. Damn that last one sounds so tacky, but it’s true. Romantic and platonic.

something I plan on learning: 
Putting my knowledge of nutrition to good use. And learning kinesiology.

a piece of advice for all my followers:
If you’re feeling down or depressed for whatever reason, don’t wallow. Don’t ignore the feelings either though. Feel them and recognize them. Then get your butt up and nourish yourself. Disconnect. Shut off the tv and the computer. Eat something healthy, but also comforting. (Like a fruit smoothie) Drink tea. (This isn’t just a hipster thing, tea really does make you feel better.) Take a hot bath. Read a book. Journal. Indulge yourself into learning something new, no matter how ridiculous it may seem. Go to Home Depot or Lowe’s and look at the masses of colofrul paint chips. Take a few (or a bunch!) that you like and put them on your wall and make a collage. (I’m not even kidding about this. Seeing all kinds of colors I like makes me happy and really does lift my mood sometimes.) Focus on completing something you’ve been putting off for a while. Make to-do lists, take your time, and check off items one-by-one as you complete them. Never skimp on breaks. Always take time for yourself. You, your mental/physical/emotional health, and well-being should always come first before anything else. Don’t be afraid to be a little selfish sometimes in order to take care of yourself.

These are just things I’ve been doing lately to help my depression and they’ve been working for me quite well.

Oi, this week has been so busy.

College has given me a crapload of work. Thankfully I’m nearing the end of my pile. I do have one English assignment though that I’m absolutely dreading. I feel like the rest of Tumblr would kill to have this assignment, except me. What is it?

A creative writing assignment in which we rewrite one of the climaxes in The Order of the Phoenix.

Yep, my teacher pretty much assigned us to write Harry Potter fan fiction. I’m hating it. I am not creative in the literary sense. Even in elementary school I hated story writing assignments, even though teachers told me they liked what I wrote. Hell, I don’t even read fan fiction. Why? Because I worry that if I read it, and too much of it, it will completely skew my own personal views and opinions of the original story and I’ll never look at it the same way again. Sounds silly, I know, but it’s true.

I really do not want to do this, but alas. I have to. My first draft page is due Monday. I don’t know exactly which part I’m rewriting yet, but I think it’ll be a section which includes a lot of Cho. I want to rewrite her, mostly because I dislike her so much. Rereading the book has left me so disappointed in the way Rowling kind of wrote/threw her in. I still love her work, always will, but I just feel like Cho had so much lost potential in that particular novel. She could’ve been an emotional, yet strong, kickass, and maybe kind of a revenge-seeking chick, but instead she’s just an overly emotional and showy schoolgirl with no depth whatsoever. That’s just my opinion anyway.

On top of that, I’ve been planning around Ray’s birthday, which is tomorrow. I plan on cleaning the apartment from top to bottom — which he’ll love since he’s almost as bad, if not worse, of a clean freak as I am, he wants a chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting, and he finally told me tonight that he wants breakfast for his dinner, so I have that all to make too. I got him a new large water bottle for work and a pack of t-shirts for his birthday. I also got him a card. I wish I wrote more in it besides the typical “happy birthday/I love you” but I just didn’t really know what exactly to say or put into words what I’d like to say.

My mom got him a wallet. It’s really nice. I’m kind of jealous, heh. I think he’ll really like it. On Saturday morning we’re headed back to our parents’ to stay the night and on Sunday his mom is having a birthday dinner for him. I’m hoping to get most of my homework done tomorrow so I don’t have to worry about it this weekend.

sorry:

Brains are wonderful, I wish everyone had one.

Welcome to depression, Andy.
