Finding a job sucks.
my life right now
That first one needs a separate circle, not touching the others that says, “jobs that will make your parents happy.”
Yes, finding a job is very difficult.
If you can bring yourself to do it (I know not everyone can), a thing I can recommend is dressing up in “respectable” drag, knocking on doors and making a pest of yourself about how valuable an employee you’ll be.
Not saying it’s easy and perfect and will solve everything (it won’t), but it’s also an option that can get you work.
My (not neurotypical) son had to resort to this and it worked for him. Not that he has a brilliant job, but he can put gas in his car and pay for his school books.
(Disclaimer, no it isn’t a panacea, just one thing you might try)
I’ve heard good things about them, but haven’t played any (that I can recall right now, which isn’t necessarily 100% accurate, I grant). Should I check them out?
My word, yes! They have some really good storylines!
Oh, neat. I’m a fan of that genre, myself.
What do you think of the games Artifex Mundi puts out?
Hidden Expedition: Smithsonian Hope Diamond.
I’m addicted to Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure games.
Dear gaming company,
It’s set in DC. Most people you see in DC are actually not white. Believe it or not, it throws the game for me not to see the way people are in a particular city.
It’s one thing when all the white DC cops in the Winter Soldier is a clue that something is Seriously Wrong, mind… But if this cab driver and the museum guard don’t turn out to be agents or a ringers, I am going to be disgusted.
The fact that I like being alone but hate feeling alone makes me the most confusing person ever.
Being alone and being lonely are two completely different things. To an introvert, that alone time is amazing, restorative and regenerating.
Feeling lonely can happen in almost any context — socializing or in solitude. Feeling lonely is when you feel a lack of the connections you want to feel, when you feel misunderstood, when you feel isolated from the human experience.
Here’s the real conundrum. No matter how unique or common your personal experiences are, will confront periodic feelings of loneliness. It seems to be part of the human condition.
So this is the status of a hot 20 year old jock that I know.
doesn’t seem like the right way to handle this? like I maybe see where he’s coming from, but it’s not suddenly okay to revenge post someone’s secrets just because they’ve done that.
and being someone’s parent doesn’t give you the right to post messages on their social media.
most people I know learn the way to act around other people by example, and this guy’s dad clearly thinks it’s okay to post compromising information about someone who used to be under his power (possibly still is? he’s 20?) and and trusted him with or was forced to reveal a highly embarrassing secret/problem. and thinks it’s okay to do that because it’s justified because the person he has power/blackmail material over did something he doesn’t approve of.
I don’t think it’s okay at all to post people’s information without their permission on the internet or anywhere else, but it really annoys me when people act like it’s okay as long as the victim is bad/disapproved of/okay to make fun of or the attack is funny to them.
Everything Kel said.
Also remember that when you put someone down, even someone who’s done something wrong, by pointing to morally neutral stuff like bedwetting, you’re making it just a little more ok for others to hold bedwetters, or whomever, in contempt, which is bad.
(I can’t actually remember when I finally stopped wetting the bed, I *think* it was before 14, but I’m not totally sure)
20 year old?
Maybe I’m weird, but I wouldn’t have forbidden my eighteen year old access to Facebook.
I would have been (and AM) perfectly capable of saying I’d refuse financial support to someone over 18 under certain conditions, but you don’t ground an adult. That dynamic isn’t teaching that person to be an adult in any way, shape or form.
I don’t like this keeping people children for longer than they’re of legal majority, I really don’t.
It is a source of endless amusement to me that the two men I know who seem to enjoy the most relationships with women are both feminists.
P.S. One of them actually gets to sleep with me :)
P.P.S They’re also both into BDSM on the dom side. This is getting a bit brain splody.
Me: (Listening to a Congresscritter) Good Holy God, how dumb do they think we …. Nevermind. We did elect the bastards, after all.
