Hey guys I'm a college student that is pretty he has pink eye. I wanted to know first how long do y'all think I should not go to class. and what I should do in the meantime? (not interested in fapping).

Sorry its hard to type with one eye. First sentence "I am a college student that is pretty sure he has pink eye." I wanted to know first how long do Y'all think I should not go to class". "And what I should do in the mean time".

My local cinema is now showing "autism friendly" versions of kid movies, what the fuck is that?

so I found this hot girl going to a party in a revealing cleavage shirt and shirt and she let me sit next to her then we kissed 4 times on the lips and she let me grab her boobs twice before she left and she gave me her number then we texted back and forth 8 times then for 3 hours she's at the party then comes back and I see her with but she then kisses another guy on the lips so advice does she want to fuck me because she's a slug or does she think she's getting anything out of it because she willingly gave me her number when she didn't have too so what do I do
#159435 to #159434 - dipples (10/22/2014) [-]
Yeah dude i call "slurry galore". Sorry but she sounds like a she's a bit loose with her affection if you dig, the fact that she was making out with another guy really displays that. Forget about her bud

So today I broke up with my girlfriend of a year and a half, the spark just wasn't there and I tried fixing things but my feelings stayed the same. I don't miss her, but I do. I have mixed feelings about wether it was the right choice or not, I'm relieved but sad as shit at the same time, can anyone guide me?

#159371 - anonexplains (10/22/2014) [-]
I posted this on the hating board by accident, just copy-pasting it here

should i take the shsat? I studied last summer for like, 3 weeks and gave up because 1.) i hate studying during the summer and 2.) all the schools are either too far away or don't have much relating to computer repair

I want to go to one of those public vocational high schools because you know, muh careers, but all my classmates are stressing that going to schools like Stuy and Brooklyn tech is the most crucial thing in their lives. what do?
User avatar #159377 to #159371 - letting ONLINE (10/22/2014) [-]
I don't see a downside to taking it? I suppose the choice is if you really need to get into a technical high school or not, I'm not from the New York area so I can only go by what I just read online, but it sounds like a really good career opportunity, so why not?
#159387 to #159377 - anonexplains (10/22/2014) [-]
well, i'm having my doubts because i read this article that 60-80% of students who were accepted to stuy and brooklyn tech chose non-specialized high schools. Plus the vocational hs has A+ computer repair, which i'd like very much. When i research the specialized high schools all i find are robotics and networking. I also feel ill just embarrass myself when i take the test since i barely know half of what i'm supposed to for the test and it's in 4 days. What do you think of vocational high schools?
User avatar #159390 to #159387 - letting ONLINE (10/22/2014) [-]
I currently attend a "vocational" high school part time (although we prefer to call it a technical education and career center) and I have my IC3, PCPro, and Strata certifications. It is an incredible opportunity, at least where I go. I'll have six college credits by the time I graduate and that much of a jump into the workforce.

Robotics and networking are great skills as well, but if you're more-so interested in the hardware portion of it, I understand, I'm the same way. A vocational school is usually aimed at teaching you skills that will get you a job, and honestly, you'll be so much more passionate about it because you're around what you enjoy, not being force-fed 18th century English literature because you need a credit to graduate.

If you can do it, I say go for it, with everything you've got.

Cheated once? Or consecutively cheated? Big difference.

Regardless, that's disrespectful. Dump her immediately. Get some information out of her an maybe make her feel extremely guilty about it.

Then just carry on with life. Life continues after a shitty relationship. There will be other chicks whom you will have better and more fruitful relationships with. You will also 'love' them and they will love you. Losing is just a natural part of life
User avatar #159420 to #159358 - megasharkman (10/22/2014) [-]
Don't let her know you cheated. Leave her for a small reason like her nose is too big, she's getting kinda chunky, her friend is hotter, a mole, ear size, etc. That way she is self concious for the rest of her life.

I've been there before man. Nothing can soothe that pain. But please don't kill yourself. That won't solve anything. I say just confront her in the morning. You can do something spiteful, or tell her how much that hurt you. I'm so sorry man. I'm honestly sad that you have to deal with that pain.

Of course it's not by mistake. It's very much intentional. But that's life. People lie. People change how they think about things. People change their mind about how they feel about you. She might have told you that she loved you with all of her heart, then a few months later - after you have a nice evening with her at a local carnival - she might tell you that she no longer loves you.

To give (hopefully) better advice I'll need you to go into more detail about:
1. How exactly your Aspergers affect you (since I know some people from school that have it and they deal with certain social stuff differently. One curls up and rocks and the other bolts to the nearest bathroom possible no matter what might be going on.)
2. How long you've known this person and what they are like
3. If you've ever tried to talk to this person in the past and how it turned out.

Don't know where else to put this...I'd put it in philosophy but there is no board for that. I'd go to reddit, but I love this community so much...anyway details are boring. So I need a source on a quote, or something like this. I don't have the exact quote, I saw it on twitter a while ago and I can't find the real thing. It's something like "You always know when it's your first time, but you never know when it's your last". Any source or explanation as to where it originated is greatly appreciated.

Holy FUCK it's hard to ask for advice. I've been spending about 10 mins now trying to write but I keep deleting everything. OK for the past few weeks (7ish weeks I think) I've had no motivation in college, and in life. Every morning I wake up and I feel like shit. Sometimes I think about walking in front of a bus and close my eyes. I feel like am losing control of everything in life. I've been through a depression before, and I'm afraid I might be going back into one. I think to myself all the time "I'm a total fucking loser" I really don't know what to do anymore. I've got no one to talk to and I'm a poor fucking cunt. I think maybe I got to get motivate again and maybe things can work out for me. I'm not the kind of guy to write about my feelings and shit so I apologize if it's hard to read.
#159453 to #159351 - anonexplains (10/22/2014) [-]
I don't think you're whining and I kinda know how you feel.
For the past 6 years I've had no motivation for anything in life.
I dont feel like doing homework, I dont feel like working, I dont feel like socialising,
I dont feel like watching anime, I dont feel like drawing (even though drawing is/should be what I love doing most) I dont feel like doing anything. And days just seem empty an useless, even when I do a lotta shit on a day.

I do have a handfull of good friends, most of the time I feel to shitty to hang out with them. But I will say this.
Make friends with whom you can laugh till you drop from time to time. Manage to make these friends. When u spend a day laughing your ass off, you'll feel motivated and less depressed for some hours or even days after. Give yourself a moment to be with people and act crazy in a while. You have no time to think and be lonely, enjoy those moments.

Good friends, fucking find them and spend time with them having just FUN.

Ghost peppers are rated at over a million on the scoville scale.

Maybe turn those things into some sort of home defense thing or something? Put them in a blender, blend them to a liquid, and put that in a spray bottle. Spray your dog when he is acting up. Your dog will now either die or hate you forever.

As a 16 year old who is 5'6, (5'7 with shoes), is there a chance I will grow any more?

User avatar #159381 to #159335 - letting ONLINE (10/22/2014) [-]
It depends on when you hit puberty, and if your growth plates have fused or not. If you hit puberty early (11-12ish) odds are you will not grow more than another inch at the most, perhaps not at all. If you puberty late (13-14) you still have a good chance at another growth spurt, and might hit 5'8 or 5'9.

Contrary to popular belief, boys are pretty much done growing at 17-18. There's still raging hormones, and you will LOOK different and likely gain more muscle by the time you are in your early 20s, but vertically, not much is left to gain.

eat good carbs such as brown rice, veggies, and wheat bread/pastas

get your fats in the mornings, such as peanut butter, and peanuts.

do that for about a month or so youll see results by then

So this is probably gonna be a bit ranty:   
   
I met my boyfriend in our first year of uni and we've been dating since (3 and a half years). I'm currently across the country now getting my master's after I graduated and he's finishing up his undergrad (he had bad grades in first year, so he's making up for it now). We both took history degrees with the intent on teaching, and both decided against it. I'm doing my master's in information sciences. His goal is just to graduate with his BA and potentially get into conservation.    
Or so I thought. He has never settled on what he wants to do, and today he facebooked me with a link for a video game design diploma. Another 13,000$ of debt, another year of school. He still lives with his parents  and seems to have no idea or plans about his future.    
I'm scared that our relationship has no solid future, but I absolutely don't want to end it. Any suggestions?    
tl;dr- I'm afraid my bf is a dead beat.

lots of people get stuck out of college. finding a job can take months if not years, at least hes doing something relatively productive instead of taking months to look for a job. living with his parents is fucking smart. he is saving himself a lot of money. sounds like you're just embarrassed by him and want to break up with him because of that. he has no future? he's just out of work, he's not a ditch digger for a living.

>video game design diploma
majority of these degrees are basically art degrees. Get his degree in software development, so at least he can have a stable income. While he has a stable income, he can practice using those skills to make games. If he becomes good enough or makes good enough games, then maybe he can make some money off of it or get a job at a good development company. None of those companies need people who's only skill is visualizing a game. That ability helps, but if you can't program it or create the artwork/models for it (an even more iffy field to get into), you're SOL.

More than likely, he doesn't know what he wants to do but knows he likes video games. Make him come to terms with that.

I totally agree, but he's really bad with computers. Not saying he can't learn, but I really hope he at least works to pay off his loans before committing to more school, especially since it took him 5 years to get his undergrad. I'll be almost done my master's by the time he graduates with his BA.

I know he's trying really hard, but he might have to suck it up for a while before he can figure out what his dream job is. He put the video game idea on the back burner, because I cautioned against mixing work and play (and said that that diploma he was looking at wouldn't get him fuck all) so he's still going forward with his last plan (conservation), but it'll be iffy if he can even get a job in that.

Work was never a problem in school, but the real world is getting closer every day. :S

He could look into getting a job as a waiter at a decent restaurant (decent in terms of volume of business, doesn't have to be fancy). That's what I do, and I pay for my schooling through that. He should be able to pay off his loans, provided he's decent at the job (just be really fake and smiley). It will probably take a couple years, since it took a couple years to accrue, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

As for being computer illiterate, how bad? Like my grandma illiterate, teenage girl who only knows how to get on facebook, or what? If you don't know much programming logic or specific programs or stuff that's not too bad. At least at my school, they make you pretty much start from the ground up (programming logic 1, a course in microsoft office, etc). And you can get an A.S. in two or less years, especially since he'll have most of the pre-reqs out of the way.

Though, it really sounds like he's trying to rush a career when he doesn't really know what he wants. I assume he didn't like conservation much to begin with, but stuck with it just to graduate? He needs to take some time and figure out at least a path he'd like to try and take. Don't expect him to figure out a life passion if he hasn't already got one. Shit's hard yo. I bounced back and forth between a bunch of fields for a while. I started programming a pokemon game one day, and found out I'm decent at it even without instruction, so that's what I'm doing. I'm not sure it's my passion, but it definitely takes my mind off things while I work. It might be harder for you to understand, since you sound like you're both good at the school thing and have a goal you're driven towards. But for people that don't, the prospect of finding a career and a field you enjoy seem daunting at the least, possibly terrifying.

No, he has 0 experience with conservation. It's an option without formal schooling and it's just what he's leaning towards. The biggest problem is he has NO experience. He's worked at the coal mine here and hates it, so he doesn't want a labour job, but he also doesn't want to be at a desk all day.
Right now he's only taking 3 classes and he's been trying to find a part time job for the last month and a half, but that's largely in labour. He's pretty quiet, so a service job would either help that or end up making him miserable.
We all thought Conservation would be a great option, and he initially agreed, but hasn't made any effort to pursue it. Right now he's finishing his degree just so it's finished and he didn't drop out after so much work (which I totally agree with).
As for his computer skills-- he can use one alright. But he does things that just baffle me. Uses internet explorer (I installed chrome and adblocker FOR him), has malware out the wazoo from doing 'express' installs of emulators and crap like that.
I was really surprised he wanted to do something related to video games... 15 hours at a computer would probably be his worst nightmare. The guy likes video games, but he's a pretty active person and I think he'd be really unhappy at a desk job.

Right now the plan is still just to graduate and then to try and get involved with Conservation. He's been in contact with search and rescue, and the volunteer firefighters to see if he can get some experience that way. I just really hope he can get a full time job in something he at least doesn't HATE. For a few years, anyway.

You live in WV? My family's from there(my dad's side).
I'm actually pretty quiet myself, I used to and sometimes still get social anxiety, getting a service job helped that. You basically have a spiel you can stick to, and any extra conversation is started from the customer's end until you get the hang of it. But I guess it could go both ways.
I probably wouldn't go for computer skills if I were him, but that doesn't mean he can't overcome it. He just has to apply himself.
He probably thinks it was going to be just storyboarding and playtesting games, which would be a pretty sweet job. Idk how often those are available though.
Getting some experience is probably the best thing. He'll find out if he's interested in that sort of thing, or if he wants to pursue a slightly different area or a different field altogether. That's the thing I really hate about schooling, you really have no idea what a field will be like until you're in it. Most people can't even get a good internship until grad school, and by then it's too late.
User avatar #159395 to #159392 - habanaro (10/22/2014) [-]
I live in Canada, so nope to the West Virginia I assume that's what WV stands for?? question.

And yeah, I think it's something that will take a few years for him to figure out. He has a lot of pressure from his parents and there's not much he can do about it because he's relying on their good will right now.

And that we're expected to automatically know what to do with our lives is so bizarre to me. I'm glad he dropped the video game idea, as it was just a suggestion that I took WAY too seriously I panicked a bit, haha but being back at square one isn't a whole lot more stable. I feel a lot more pressure to find a high paying job because I think I'll end up supporting us, which I'm fine with, but I was raised in poverty and I'll admit it's a huge fear to return to it.

I just have to be patient, but I consider myself very driven and so it's hard for me to understand sometimes why he doesn't know what to do. I'm also frustrated by his lack of initiative. He doesn't try and volunteer or get involved or experience new things. I've worked with him, so I know at work he's got incredible work ethic he's a VERY hard worker, actually. But only AT work. but he won't (can't?) apply that same ethic to trying to find a job.

I have very few complaints about our relationship, but this is definitely the biggest and it's hard to not recognize its importance. Especially now that I"m so far away it's hard to be there to help motivate him, and I'm worried that I'm nagging him too much via text. It's an awkward balance right now and so easy to forget that his graduation is steadily approaching.

Ah, I just assumed you were from the US and West Virginia is one of our biggest coal producers.
I can't imagine being driven, I'm lazy AF when I'm not at work. So I guess I can kind of relate to him a bit.
It may be that he's taking this seriously, but doesn't know which direction to go. In that case, a barrage of texts won't help the matter. But it may just be laziness. You know him better than I.
User avatar #159405 to #159401 - habanaro (10/22/2014) [-]
I definitely think he's taking it serious. I just dont think he has the motivation. To his credit, when I do text and ask how job hunting is going or suggest posts that I saw he's never told me to fuck off. He's usually grateful for suggestions, but I always wonder if my 'help' is just depriving him from having to get off his ass and do it himself. But on the same hand, before we were dating he was failing classes left and right (thus why it's taking him 5 years to finish his degree), so I'm not so sure I want to test that theory on something so important.

Convince him to learn the programming aspects so that he could make games independently, but mostly so that he can get a job in programming as a backup.
#159369 to #159326 - anonexplains (10/22/2014) [-]
I would love to be able to convince him to do that, but he's pretty computer illiterate and already has 5 years under his belt. My big wish would be he would take a break and work to pay off his loans before going to do more school.

We've known for the last couple years that he doesn't know what he wants to do. It's really frustrating for me because, while I've changed my mind before, I've always had very clear goals and very clear plans on how to get there. So it's hard to commiserate, but I have to force myself to understand.

User avatar #159417 to #159369 - megasharkman (10/22/2014) [-]
Maybe firefighter then? For now as a part time job he should look into security. They're always hiring.

how can I be less of a faggot???
#159378 to #159314 - youregaylol (10/22/2014) [-]
I agree with the haircut part, it looks like you're balding and the long hair just draws attention to that. Maybe consider a buzz cut.

I'm not sure about getting rid of the glasses, you might look worse without them. Some new frames would be an improvement, something less obvious.

You look like you're trying to grow sideburns or something. You can't. Just shave it off.

If theres a chair next to you sit on the chair, don't sit on the floor like you're 7.

And I shouldn't have to say this, but don't take pics where your eyes are closed and your mouth is open. It's just weird.
#159317 to #159314 - festinas (10/21/2014) [-]
- Get hair cut
- Contacts (or better looking glasses, no hate but glasses are like clothes, they change design and season)
- Up to date clothes (no hipster shit, but good decent clothes)
- Good hygiene (shower grooming and smell good) and as a bonus work out a bit

No longer faggot.

(even though this shit sounds homo, theres is a difference between homo and faggot)

Any details you'd like to give?

Otherwise, you can start off by not labeling yourself as a Faggot anymore.

You'll only ever need one word to define yourself, and that is You.
