Well see for yourself. Change,Change can occur any moment of any day. all you can do is allow it to shape you and mold you're life into what its going to be. A Year ago i never thought i'd be living saskatchewan in order to finish my schooling. 3 weeks ago i didnt know i'd have to write this. change,big or small happens,you cant do much about it. (Cont.)
I Remember each time i was told we had to move or were going i remember each time i was told i was going to have a younger brother or sister, and months later, each time being told it would be another little sister,not a brother. What would my life be like if even one of my siblings was a brother? what if i had never moved off gatensbury st? or left B.C? (Cont)
The change in me is phenomenal in its self, little things like my hair colour, Bleach blonde to brown,my eyes once a constant gleaming blue now are clouded with a looming grey on many days. My personality,a joyous boy,a class clown,with no plans for the next minute to a young man concerned and thinking of his future,wanting to know what it with holds. (Cont.)
Change within my family and friends,even complete strangers drifting in and out my life,like seasons year round,asking about me occasionally when we used to talk everyday. wanting to get to know me better and i shut them out accidently or i scare them off. many times you cant help it,people move on,life has a way of working itself out. i've learned to let it,occasionally altering it for my sake. (Cont.)
Change is change. i may be a completly different person in 6 months, i may be unrecognizable to some,but change is a part of fate. Embrace it. (Close)

You'll have to enlarge it. I fixed some capitalization mistakes and a few spelling and grammar. Also, you need to put a space after a comma. The first sentence of the second paragraph seems to be a run-on. Splitting it up would be best. If it's not too invasive, what's your grade level? And what does the assignment ask for particularly? Also, I would get a teacher to edit, if it's not due tomorrow.

im curious and this might be an uneducated question but whats the deal with fedoras? why is it beta? and why are trilby hats worse?
User avatar #100166 to #100147 - finblob ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
It's a hat that people don't like because people they don't like wear it.
#100149 to #100147 - bann (10/20/2013) [-]
Fedoras have become a symbol of the pompous, as you called them "betas" who complain too much about their circumstances. Specifically they're used to symbolize "class" in their minds, the wearers often make condescending remarks about society, how women are foolish sluts, and why "douche bags" are failures.

In short, they've become a symbol of arrogant pricks who'd rather complain about others than change their situation.
User avatar #100151 to #100149 - souperfunny (10/20/2013) [-]
aaah that makes sense.... and suppose the elderly wore fedoras thats an entirely different issue correct?
#100152 to #100151 - bann (10/20/2013) [-]
Indeed, as in their time they were stylish and practical for business. A fedora, or a similar hat, was a symbol of business, much like a tie today. They're not really affiliated with any particular attire anymore...well except the fedora'd gentleman I suppose.

If a girl is telling you she finds someone else hot, she's not into you. Not a very subtle thing.

At least you weren't 'ignored friend request zoned', I'd just take it easy, talk if you feel like it...but the ones with the most potential aren't the ones who tell your friends (knowing it'll come back to you probably) that someone else is hot. Shit's whack yo.

Ok, so I recently bought something online, and noticed it said UPS would be in charge of shipping. Well, it was delivered at my doorstep a few days ago, and with it came a 100 dollars in shipping costs that I was unaware of. Aren't shipping costs supposed to be a part of the price you pay to the company that you ordered from, or at least warn you about additional shipping costs? The site didn't mention anything about any additional billing arriving at my doorstep.
A hundred bucks seems harsh

I have some like... Deep mental issues I'm only now just realizing.

When people tell me of their accomplishments I suddenly feel very insecure in an immense level to the point it panics me. This makes me a terrible person, because I can never truly be happy for anyones achievements. I can never be proud of someone.

I think this stems from my dad never being proud of me and being so expectant of me. And I think that stems from him having the same problem as I do... SO the cycle continues...

I don't know what to do or how to fix this...

I'm never proud of myself for anything. Nor do I really have anything to be proud of.
Would I ever feel proud for anything I do? Im not even sure.

Why do the high points of others make you worse? If someone gets a Nobel Prize, does that make you less of a good, smart person?
User avatar #100098 to #100097 - snakefire (10/20/2013) [-]
Yes! and I can't help it.. I don't know why. Maybe its just a reminder.

I was in an argument with someone and they flashed all their degrees at me and suddenly my heart sank and I completely withdrew from the argument.
User avatar #100099 to #100098 - dvdfaust ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
How does it make you worse? What about finding out that someone has done well makes you less? Someone flashing their degrees or flaunting their high points sounds like an ass as it is. You will achieve great things, you can, but you're still very young, and you've got a whole life to get a wall's worth of degrees. Or maybe it's that your high point is compassion, and hell, I'd rather know and trust someone giving, kind, and truly selfless and noble than a smartie.
User avatar #100100 to #100099 - snakefire (10/20/2013) [-]
I don't know why it makes me feel worse. I try not to compare myself to others, but its hard...

I don't know why my insecurities are so intense... I honestly don't.

I don't even know what I want to do in life.. But I know I want to be the best at it.
I also know, that its impossible and someone will always be better than me.
User avatar #100102 to #100100 - dvdfaust ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
Because you're scared and critical and unhappy with yourself because your dad has trained you to be, but you and I both know he is not right. You can be better than him and make him proud; especially if you've got the same issues, as you seem to think, the first, most impressive thing you can do is be proud of -yourself.

That last line is just implausible, and it'll only be true if you give up, and I know you're better than that. You can be the best because you're always getting better.
User avatar #100103 to #100102 - snakefire (10/20/2013) [-]
And other people are also always getting better too. But faster than I am.
User avatar #100105 to #100103 - dvdfaust ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
Are they? how do you know? does that make you any worse? I bet you still know things they don't know, like how to be compassionate and witty and charming.
#100107 to #100105 - snakefire (10/20/2013) [-]
If I were compassionate I would have a talent
If I were charming more people would like me
User avatar #100112 to #100107 - dvdfaust ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
People do like you, you just don't believe it because you've been trained to think the worst of yourself. As for compassion dictating whether you've got a skill or not... that just doesn't make a lot of sense. considering what your dad's done--this and... other stuff you've told me of--I'd honestly suggest a professional, not strangers on the internet who aren't trained to help you, no matter how much they want ..

Even if I wanted therapy it's not like my family could afford it.

Our unemployment will run out soon and I'll probably be forced to get a job if we don't want to end up losing services like cable or internet... or worse.

Alright, never really ask for advice ever but I feel like I really need some right now. I am currently applying for an ROTC scholarship. I have an interview in a few days and I have no idea how I'm going to go about it. I'm not usually very good with people and I'm stressing out about what the interviewer is going to ask.

So, exciting things are happening in my life.

I met a girl at a party who I also now go to school with and she's in my group.
I've liked this girl for 2-3 weeks, maybe a little longer. I figured because she's her and I'm me I had no chance so I didn't think much of it, but apparently it came out at a social gathering yesterday that she likes me back (I was walking someone else to the bus stop). A friend of mine texted her saying that I liked her back (he was acting like a bit of dong, when I got back he shouted out that she likes me although I didnt believe it then) and some other stuff, and basically she said that it's up to me to ask her out.

So, how do I do this? I'm going to see her at school tomorrow and a group of us always walk to the bus station after school. I figured this would be a good time to do it because if she says no (which wouldn't make much sense) at least I won't have to see her until the next day. I'd obviously try and get her alone so it wasn't so awkward or pressuring and such, but what the fuck do I say? I have no clue at all, really. I was thinking something fairly simple along the lines of "I've liked you for a while and apparently you like me back so..uhh...would you like to go out with me?"

What do, guise?

tl;dr: i like girl, girl like me, what say and when?
User avatar #100173 to #100064 - alphabethsoop (10/21/2013) [-]
Ask her if she wants to go get coffee or some shit after school tomorrow just the two of you.
User avatar #100294 to #100173 - herblegerble (10/21/2013) [-]
Turns out I was misinformed, or something like that.
Don't think she actually does like me back, she just used to or some shit.
On the bright side, I found out before I said anything so I saved myself that embarrassment.
On the not so bright side, I think that everyone in my group now knows because of 1 or 2 people and I'm fairly certain she knows, so now it's just become awkward between us (I think, this happened literally 2 hours ago).
User avatar #100309 to #100294 - alphabethsoop (10/21/2013) [-]
Well the only way to make it unawkward is to act as if everything is still cool even if she doesn't like you like that. Since you never actually said it to her you can play it off as if it's a nasty rumour or something.
User avatar #100310 to #100309 - herblegerble (10/21/2013) [-]
Fucking people.
I got told a couple of hours ago by the girls best friend that she actually does like me but she's very shy about it and so denied it when she was asked in front of people. This would be her first relationship so I guess it makes sense.
User avatar #100311 to #100310 - alphabethsoop (10/21/2013) [-]
WELL then the only way to figure this out is to just go for it. Don't tell her that you like her out loud let your actions say it so like ask to spend more time with her one on one and try to be more touchy feely like always go in for hugs when you see her and when you guys say goodbye. After like 2 weeks of this and HER LETTING YOU (because if she lets you she digs you if she doesnt feel comfortable when you do it don't waste your time) tell her that you like her and ask her to be your girlfriend.
User avatar #100312 to #100311 - herblegerble (10/21/2013) [-]
Thanks for the advice man. There's a party coming up at the end of this week and then another social gathering next Wednesday, so I'm thinking some time around then.
I definitely want to do it in person, and hopefully it'll be easier to get it as just her and me at these places.
User avatar #100314 to #100312 - alphabethsoop (10/21/2013) [-]
No problem yeah that's perfect ask her if she wants to go to the party and social thing with you like walk/drive there together and if she says yes then you can either a) ask her out wednesday while you are headed over or b) during the thing on wedneday don't do it before wednesday though because its too short of a time frame.
User avatar #100315 to #100314 - herblegerble (10/21/2013) [-]

#100157 to #100073 - bann (10/20/2013) [-]
No no...he's right. Leave it a little iffy, less pressure on the whole situation and make it flow better. That said, make it CLEAR that you do want to spend more time together and schedule something a few days out. If anything can or should be, that's the way to do it.

Yes, I've been in an existential crisis since I was 15, and it has driven me to attempted suicide and numerous mental health concerns.
#100247 to #100243 - omniscientreason (10/21/2013) [-]
Thats very unfortunate. What im referring to is that i really want to talk to someone who has in intrest in proving that theres possibly a provable reason for existence, the concept of infinity, and why life is a part of either or both of those. Im not in a crisis but at my core I dont know why I exist and have a conscious. It plagues my shit. care to elaborate on what you are talking about tho?

Reality is the realest thing we know, if there ever is something more real then we're no less real for not knowing it. Take it or leave it, you can throw yourself into all the loops you want, but that's probably not going to get you far.

Anyway, dude, seriously.. Type your intelligence level
#100124 to #100070 - omniscientreason (10/20/2013) [-]
I am not a genius but I do have the makings of one, with time I know that ill wield information that very few take the time to fully comprehend, as for now im a dumbass in perspective and in comparison to anyone who has gone through proper advanced schooling but I understand reality for what it is and the philosophical side of me is just so fucking done with useless people. BUT though i dont know the specifics I know the atomic structure the theory about it and can understand and relate to what you are talking about. I understand thoughts are atomic reactions so maybe you can teach me something.
User avatar #100128 to #100124 - revengeforfreeze (10/20/2013) [-]
Not sure I can bro this is about where my knowledge ends.

I know that we have mirror neurons, neurons that allow us to imagine

Let's discuss consciousness

Consciousness is ''a bunch of tricks'' as Daniel C. Dennett said.

I think consciousness is chemical energy basically. Derived from our potassium/sodium gates.. or something like that.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going since I usually don't know very much about neuroscience but maybe you can teach me something.

so theres this girl at work i really wanna get to know, weve talked a few times during work but she work at a different department. the only times ive talked to her are either on my break or lunch. but yea today i wanted to talk to her cause she was in the break room but had nothing really to say, got nervous cause 5 other people were in there and in the end just didnt try.

what should i do to try talking to her? should i just talk to her even when people are around? idk i overthink a lot of the times but she seems like a cool person to get to know.
#100159 to #100040 - bann (10/20/2013) [-]
Ask her about her, easier to talk to someone when they're the one talking. Simple stuff at first and then go from there.

#100051 to #100040 - tomtomvdp ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
Just don't think about it , if you can't come up with something to say , just think "what would a generic conversation be like ?" . and just go ahead and ask her about work , or how was her weekend , generic stuff. Once you get the chat going , things will develop naturally.

Just don't think about it , the reason that people being there bothers you it's because you are being insecure , thinking that all those people are there to judge you. It's all in your head , they don't give a fuck , clear your head of thoughts and just start a generic conversation.
User avatar #100061 to #100051 - fladen (10/20/2013) [-]
thanks for the advice ill try my best tomorrow hopefully ill bump into her to try it out. and yea im a little insecure but i think youre right, no one gives a fuck. I dont give a fuck if someone is talking to someone else so idk why i should be thinking to much about it.

last time i just asked a basic question and we began talking for our whole break. so maybe i just need to try it again.

accidently replied to myself

I'm glad to advice you , let me know how it goes. Best of luck.
User avatar #101000 to #100148 - fladen (10/28/2013) [-]
finnaally got to talk to her today, i was told to clock off early and was gonna leave but decided to chill in the break room. she came in like 10 min later and i did what you said and just started talking to her. we talked for like 30 min till she had to go back to work and it was cool.

i made her laugh, found out some things about her, she asked me were i live and we live around the same area. idk it was really cool. totally didnt think i was gonna have the balls to do it, but i tried it and it went totally better than i thought!
User avatar #101001 to #101000 - tomtomvdp ONLINE (10/28/2013) [-]
I'm really glad to hear that , from this point on , i would say that you just keep talking to her , try not to force anything . And don't get disappointed or sad if someday she doesn't feel like talking , it doesn't mean that she hates you or anything . Just giving you the heads up.

Just let it happen naturally. keep talking with her and see were it gets you.
User avatar #101134 to #101001 - fladen (10/29/2013) [-]
yea that makes sense sometimes people just wanna talk. but idk it was just really cool. i was making her laugh and i wasn't even really trying too, and i noticed she was trying to talk to me the last couple min as well cause i was talking to one of my friends about some shit and she got my attention and talked about other stuff.

but yea next time ima just try and get another conversation going and see were that ends, not try to force anything and all that

so im talking to this girl right now and things are going well ( i think) but she doesnt want to date. shes waiting to learn more about me and hope we "click" but i have no idea if its actually gonna happen, side note we have had sex i sometimes spend the night at her place, so whats everyones thoughts on the situation cuz i think its gonna fall through
User avatar #100036 to #100027 - guiguito (10/20/2013) [-]
you like her?
#100038 to #100036 - MrFluffy (10/20/2013) [-]
yes otherwise i wouldn't be asking for advice
User avatar #100041 to #100038 - guiguito (10/20/2013) [-]
describe it
#100044 to #100041 - MrFluffy (10/20/2013) [-]
when we have time we go on dates (in college so times limited at times), usually we laugh and hang out and everything seems fine. we've had sex fairly recently, i talk to her every day mostly through texting but we see eachother every week at some point. i enjoy her company quite a bit. not sure what else to say
#100160 to #100044 - bann (10/20/2013) [-]
I'll say this. Much as you like her, if she doesn't want to date, then she's not looking to get too attached, which means that she won't be there forever. You may miss a lot of chances to find someone more long term/committed if you stay 'with' the girl you're with and I'm sure you don't want to be alone yea know?

If you want to know for sure, it's as simple as telling her you need something more committed if you want to go on. If she wants to be with you cool, if not you're in a better spot to find a lover.

This is all assuming you want something that will last, which most people who like/love someone do. All I'm saying is you can't expect things to work out long term with the girl you're with.

If you're just looking to screw (totally acceptable) then you're in the right boat.
User avatar #100046 to #100044 - guiguito (10/20/2013) [-]
idk man, judging by how you described it, friends with benefits could go a long way, if you keep this forever you will die happy, or until she get pregnant, but i am sure you are a protected lad.

So I'm not scared to talk to people (mostly), but I never have shit to say and have trouble carrying on a conversation. I know I should ask them questions about them selves, but even still it always feels like a dead end.
User avatar #100020 - delphine (10/20/2013) [-]
So I joined You need to login to view this link on a whim and have been on a few dates with guys (I'm a girl). Most of the dates were okay, but they were with the "fist-bumping bro" type which I'm not really in One of the guys I went to coffee with on Tuesday told me he would text me this weekend about getting dinner again and seemed honest about it, and he was easy to talk to and funny so I said I would be happy to go on a second date. But he hasn't contacted me yet. Should I wait, or should I text him and see if he's still interested? I don't want him to think I'm clingy or desperate, I'm just genuinely interested in a 2nd date.
User avatar #100101 to #100020 - sommerli (10/20/2013) [-]
He might not have the balls to text you, which would make it easier for him if you asked him whats up. Or (sorry to say) he might not be interested. I have no idea how long you should wait for him to contact you, but grab him while you are in his eyesights.
#100039 to #100020 - MrFluffy (10/20/2013) [-]
this may seem a bit brutal to say but if the guy is honest expect a text atleast by monday if you really think he is being honest, otherwise move on. The way i think (not the same as everyone else mind you) is if im interested in a girl i'll let her know that relatively soon. But like Metallicock said, wait till monday
User avatar #100025 to #100020 - Metallicock ONLINE (10/20/2013) [-]
Wait till Monday if you're worried.

You can send him a text saying that you've had problems with your phone, or something along those lines.
