The recent events in France have really, I'm not sure how to say it, Burned me out (?????) like, I feel as if I should do something and I have been looking if I can donate money to the red cross but they haven't got a specific thing for that event nor do they have a general donation box thing, unless I want to do regular donations but I don't have enough for that. I want to help but not in a way that makes me look like I'm shouting it out for all to see. I defiantly think the facebook picture filter feels hollow. I truly care about it and hope it get better. I'm not French but I have been going to France for the majority of my whole life so I do feel a connection to the country.

I guess there isn't much I can really do is there?

Again I don't want to feel morally superior or anything.

Raise awareness, join fundraisers, there's not much you can directly do to help. That I can think of.
Do NOT donate to the Red Cross.
www.propublica.org/article/red-cross-ceo-has-been-misleading-about-donations
There was also some content posted a while ago stating how bad Red Cross donations were.
As well as a comedian I saw live touch upon how it's a scam.

So, uh, just a "throw shit at a wall and see if it sticks" kind of question but:
Let's say you have virtually no money, aeons of time, and you sort of have to find a way to irl propose to someone who currently lives overseas and will do so for the foreseeable future -someone who you've known all your life, not some kind of long distance thing, if that's worth anything. There's enough money for the travel, but not a lot of logistics or resources to put on something big.
What would you do?

some things you can quit in an instant
some things you have]e to wain off of....
some things you have to take slow, get a fix and take it little at a time.
you need it. you crave it, you will kill for it.
so you say you need help, but inside you just want you're fucking fix....
that stay from reality just a little at a time....
so you can eventually live without it.
there are things that ou will finally know yu can do without...
but then... it happens, you see it...
you crave it again, that high, that escape...
that rush , of everything going right again,
everything in its place...
but it will fade again...
be it your first or you last fix...
it will never leave tour system...
this isn't meth, isn't cocaine...
no
this shit is harder...
this is love...
and it will take our life,
it will consume you, and it will not let go. there is no 12 step program
no cure, no escape....im sorry.... but your gone....
your addicted...
and no matter what you say...
you will chase that first high...
that perfect moment... i'm sorry... but you have had te wore drug possible,,,,
you're in love....

I think mine lasted a week or two.
I didn't have any pain, I just didn't eat practically ever and slept for days on end.
If I woke up, I went right back to sleep.
Overall it was just a very annoying illness to have.

Don't know what's up for you and your throat but I'd suggest drinking a lot of water.

I just need to vent and someone to tell me I'm not crazy...
I'm in college going for engineering at a top engineering school in the U.S., and it's hard shit. You wouldn't really understand unless you've done it or are doing it.
Anyways, my roommate is a straight loser who pisses me off. Let me explain. He's (god only knows what) major, and hasn't gone to class or left the dorm in 5 weeks. I'm not exaggerating out of frustration, like literally hasn't (besides eating/going to board game club i think i don't actually know ). I'm not in the dorm for 80% of the awake day usually, but when I am he literally always laughs fucking loud, again you wouldn't understand unless you heard him, and he constantly talks to himself.

Am I crazy for not being able to live with this shit stain? I'm never doing random rooming again.

Fuckin' hell, my room mate was the same. He'll talk to the TV while watching movies and cartoons, and his laugh is this annoyingly loud cackle. He's such a piece of shit and he leaves his dirty bowls and pots soaking in water WITHOUT RINSING THEM so it looks absolutely disgusting. He'd sit them on the microwave that another room mate owned, and so now that he left and I needed a microwave, I keep it in my room. In the first year, I had to share a room with this fatass and he'd never wash his bed sheets so they went from a light blue to brown. Like you, this isn't an exaggeration. How fucking disgusting is that? I could smell his filth when he walked by. I had to hold my fucking breath every time.

Mine can cook an entire box of pasta, plus a bunch of shit and cheese he tosses in with it, and eat that for dinner. The entire thing. I checked on a box once, and the pasta alone, undressed, was 1600 calories. This fat fuck is eating ~3000 calories in one meal. He got kicked out of the army because they told him to lose weight or he had to go. Now he's collecting checks from the government for doing nothing.

It's instate tuition so it's not too bad (prolly 15k~semester). But still, this guy. I don't talk to him for obvious reasons, but he might've just dropped all his classes this semester? I don't fucking know. I want to really passive aggressively ask him though. If I dropped classes I would go home though, especially if I was just being a worthless piece of shit to society.

I feel you, I really do. I only ever snapped at mine once, but you shouldn't. Consider this; yes, he's a piece of shit, and giving him a verbal brutalization is tempting, but you have to live with him. Your situation can go from annoying to requiring legal action really quick. Piss off a room mate and you could find your shit going missing or broken, or he could just start being even worse just to piss you off for the fun of it. My guy told me once about how he stole from his own grandparents. When I leave for breaks, I take photos of my room so I can prove if shit went missing. It hasn't yet, thankfully, but there's always the chance. Choose your battles carefully. I suggest sticking to ranting online.

Trying to stay positive. I come from a pretty wealthy father, so last summer I just did nothing but help around the house and do odd jobs that my family needed done. But other than that I did nothing. Even though I don't need to, I'm probably going to get a job this summer doing at least something, thinking back on my previous summer I can't stand the idea of doing that again.

Thats kinda difficult tbh, when you're friends with someone for that long its hard to change your views on them, like i had the same problem but reverse , friend of mine liked me and i couldn't say yes because i couldn't develop feelings for him, but if you want anything to happen you better change the way you treat her let her know that there's a difference in your intentions to let her know because it would be a shock to her if it was all of a sudden.

Hey, I've been talking to this girl for about a week through Facebook (we were co-workers a few months before she quit), and was curious to find out in your experience if she's interested in me. In my eyes, she's the most beautiful and elegant girl I've seen And I generally don't like a lot of the girls I see. Always have a little or a lot of fake qualities around them . She's the type of person who you can determine a lot about without them saying a word, in a good way of course.

So, I message her every day or so asking her generic questions. She answers them as expected, but hasn't really asked any questions back. This may reflect her personality IRL since she's quiet. I already got her phone number through messaging her, so that's a step in the right direction. To reiterate, how can I tell if she likes me? I love observing human behavior, but I've never thought to observe this sort of situation, and this is the type of thing I don't want to mess up on.

Bonus Question: How should I go about getting her to talk to me more? I don't think we have too much in common, and I don't want to become a poser.

As a girl, when I guy messages you daily, it becomes a part of your routine, but here's the catch , it could be an annoyance or something they look forward to, to find out which one of those two it is you have to stop messaging her for a bit, just wait a couple of days to see if she'll message you because when you have someone who's a part of your day usually it feels incomplete not talking to them, messaging first is very important too because it lets you know whether the person actually wants to talk to you .
Also stop asking usually generic questions, get to know her more , make actual conversation. What's your fam like , what kind of movies do you like you can follow that up by asking her to a movie of the similar nature and dinner , find out about her interests, because you may think you're good for each other or alike and she might not.

Thanks. One more question:

How many days should I text her before stopping for a few days? Or is it just whenever I feel I should?

Also, at the moment she is in college. Not a far drive, but I also don't have a license yet. I know, it's part two of my three step plan. So it would be a minor inconvenience for her I guess. Summer time should be better since she will most likely go back home, which I don't think is too far from my home. My biggest worry is that someone else will beat me to asking her out though. But if I can get her interest, maybe it will give me a bigger advantage.

Since you've been texting her for a while already and if its been a month just talk to her for 3 days in a row and by talk I mean really good conversation that you both would enjoy, and then go away for a few days, if she doenst message first she probably doenst wanna talk to you as much as you wanna talk to her.
Yeah timing is crucial, make sure you get her interest because its much easier for someone who sees her daily to get her first.

So there's this girl who's basically the female version of me, and I really like her. I hang out with her brothers and her mom loves me. We've talked a few times and danced twice, and she always smiles and says hello.

The trouble is, I only really see her about once or sometimes twice a week. And during that time, she's usually with her friends, who I really don't know. I feel like it would be awkward trying to flirt with them right there. I'm not too nervous about talking with her, but I don't want to seem like I'm muscling in between her and her friends. What should I do?

The problem is that neither of us have a license yet, though we're eligible for permits. It's more of an annoyance than anything. There are places within walking distance though, so that's how I'll probably approach it.

>Concert
Ha ha. Nobody cares about our town enough for that. There's literally one place close by where sometimes they have live music, but it's just local bands, and most of them are mediocre-bad. I did have a good time seeing my brother's friend's band play though, since they were actually pretty good www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpMnMvdtKJg .

If you're friends with her brothers and they're chill with it then friends are nothing to worry about, just simple conversation is better than flirting imo, try talking to her group of friends while trying to talk to her but be sure to talk to her the most because then like flirting it indicates you are interested in her, eyecontact also very important when you do this.

hello. so im looking for some cheap but reliable gaming peripherals, and i need some advice on keyboards. i have two options in mind;
1- gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/g105-gaming-keyboard and 2- www.zalman.co.kr/global/product/Product_Read.php?Idx=598
and im getting this gaming.logitech.com/en-us/gaming-mice/moba-gaming-mouse-g302 mouse, so the logitech keyboard with the backlights n shit would be a really sweet combo. with the LED mouse but i've used mechanical keyboards for over 2 years and i was pretty satisfied with them.
logitech looks like something that can last longer but they're in the same price range so im not expecting a huge difference. i've watched reviews and both parties were happy. after i saw the mouse, i think im gonna get the g105, but a mechanical keyboard would be nice too.
any advices?

update: i did some more research and found out that many people are complaining about keys not responding after a short time. and all those keys were random so i think something is wrong with the build. and i watched some unboxing videos (there are not many videos of that product) and there is literally just the keyboard inside of the box. nothing else, which worried me a little. on the other hand, g105 had tons of recommendations, and logitech does make solid products, and now i have a blue led combo. i can upload the pics after they arrive if you guys want to see.

I need advice on how to do this. I have an online relationship with somebody and they live pretty far away. I would do a lot for this person and this person would do a lot for me too.

I was just curious... I wanna start planning to meet up with this person and what not. I'm not really sure how to approach the subject. I mean, we already said we want to meet each other, but I dunno how to really decide on a date and stuff.

Mostly because passports need to be done on both ends, and what not.

You pick a date that works for both of you and allows you to save up for what you need for the trip to work, so you don't get your power in your new apartment cut, to fix the transmission in the beater you'd have to buy, and so you can eat, and help pay for their part of the trip

No, but waiting months will, which is what I was advising you against. You can see repeated times where I said book in the cheap season, don't wait until they jack the price up, I'm not saying do it today but don't wait until it is more expensive, the closer it is to the date the more expensive it is, warnings all of them, and you take them as insults, are you sure you are allowed to drive? Or do you get into fist fights with a lot of suggested speed signs and caution deer signs?

You can find an event and make that an 'excuse'. Otherwise it's just best to set a date and aim for it. Bring it up and plan it together!

I'm meeting a girl for the fourth time. We lived 1300km apart when we met, and now we live 2200km apart. No biggie with how cheap flying is if you plan ahead!

The first time I asked her if I could come visit. So we met in her home town.
The second time, the day after, she invited me home to have dinner with her.
Third time, we met at a fantasy fair and spent the whole day together.
Fourth time, she'll be visiting me far north. We'll spend four days together and one of them we'll watch for falling 'stars' when an asteroid's tail passes earth again. 23 days left!

You can just meet, or you can make something even more special out of it. Agree on a time, a place, and if you're able to fund it. Better to aim high and shoot than to not do it at all!

That depends, now how fast you want to do that changes costs and feasibly.

A: How much do you have for the trip?

B: Do you already have a place in mind that you would like to meet

C:as for what to do, I mean it can be simple, just go out, shop, just plain spend time with them, as much as I hate to say it distance is a motherfucker and kills things, just spending time with them is special, treasure it. Sure go out on the town, see the sights, grab a drink, but don't down play just being close to them.

D: When planing a trip, pack early, saves the hassle

E: Any pointed questions?

You read but didn't comprehend. Plane tickets are expensive, the closer you get to the departure date, the more expensive they get. You want to get a good rate on a flight in the summer you book at this time, when all the rates are lower, you want a good flight and cheap room, you plan for winter months in the cold places and summer in the hot ones.

Take this from experience, Italy if I book now, I can get a round trip ticket for about 1000 usd, in summer it is easily 2500-3000 depending on airline. I'm not saying rush it, I'm saying if you want the best deals shop now

I'm not saying you have to, I'm just informing you of what you will run into if you don't plan ahead, 6-7 months is the optimal time to get tickets and reserve rooms.

I have travelled overseas quite a bit, I also work at a hotel, plan plan plan, if you don't you can't bitch about high prices, and I doubt with all of what you said you want that you would have it in time, beater car ~800-1000, shitty apartment ~700-1000 a month, tickets 2000 hopefully, and then if you have a free place to crash you are looking at 3500 at least if you're lucky

Exactly, that is why I am talking like you don't know what you are saying. I tried to point it out several times. Your plan while nice, is shaky if you don't plan ahead.

My trip to see my other half was nearly an instant decision, we worked out the date, we worked out who was going where, and who was paying for what. Don't think I don't know that things like this can feel rushed, but the longer you wait the more expensive it gets, so being decisive on setting the plans should be a priority.

www.cic.gc.ca/english/passport/map/map.asp

You'll probably need that Fr your passport, if you are anything like the us about it you'll bed a photo, a copy of a photo id, and a birth certificate.

Don't take anything in saying here as "do as I say, do it now" I'm saying look at what is feasible for you to do.

Recently I had to go to a pain program where they gave me adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and depressed mood. Does this mean that I have an official diagnosis of anxiety and depression or are these just recognized as symptoms? I was given over to the pain program because of chronic pain with my leg. There were times where I was pissed that my leg was in pain for no reason but I wouldn't exactly call myself depressed because of it, I feel like it's a little much. The sadness, hopelessness that I feel only pops up when the chronic pain manages to reach a peak. Does this actually mean I'm written off as these conditions that I feel are overstatements?

Since your actually reading ill explain a little more. I was super depressed, I have been before, I probably will be in the future. If you invest yourself in other people, they will let you down, and it wont stop at any point in your life. Whether its relationships, friends, family whatever, they will let you down.

My advice is to try and reduce your investment in those people. If you invest more in yourself, and you are happy with what you are doing for yourself aka learn an instrument, pick up a hobby, go for walks, maybe work out, change your life style choices for the better. You know what you aren't happy with. If you invest in yourself, and you become confident and happy, then when people let you down, its not so bad because you have your own life, your own things, your own hobbies that are still there. Those things wont go away, and wont let you down, so when people do, you have those things to turn to.

You might be asking "then why bother with people at all?". We all love, we all want social interaction. We all want physical touch. You know that. Its something we seek, and when its going good, it creates the moments in our life that are really worth living for. But while your seeking out a stable situation, you need to have your own shit together. You cant let every failed attempt knock you back to square one.

I hope that helps.
