So I'm more than a little pissed at my kid's dojo so I'm gonna enroll him elsewhere. Tell me if I'm overreacting. So it's a cheap local op ran by an old ex-cop and his daughter. Not nearly as good as our old dojo that closed down. It's a glorified TaeKwonDo themed dance class. We quit sending my daughter during the trial period because the woman who is the owner's daughter seemed to treat my daughter badly. Like she would be harsher and treat her different then other kids. Well my son worked very hard and the ex-cop said he was ready to test. Day before testing his daughter tells my son he's not ready and he comes home crying. Well yesterday his classmate who comes once a week, always gets in trouble, does not know his moves, and is the worst in class shows off his new belt. He showed up regardless and they didn't want to embarrass him so he got a belt promotion despite not earning it. They are teaching my son a bad life lesson. Disobedience gets promotion and obedience gets punished. Screw that. I'll pay twice as much to move my son to the good school. My wife thinks the owner's daughter hates us. She understands women better. Why should I continue to give money to these people? Screw that.
I've always liked doing schoolwork just for fun. When I was little, I finished a math workbook over summer vacation just for fun. In geography class I finished the vocabulary for the book over Christmas break, like a dozen chapters worth. In college I reformatted a textbook made with Microsoft Word Processor because the conversion to Word 2013 made the formatting horrendous. I keep old textbooks from college in case I get in the mood to take some notes and copy vocabulary when I'm bored. And now I'm turning a style guide from a pdf into a powerpoint. The instructions in a long 24 page PDF is a lot of information to handle. I spaced out by page 5. So hopefully, it'll be easier to digest as a powerpoint. I'm making links to the PDF for more detailed information, the powerpoint is just the same information skimmed down. I don't think it's the retaining information part I like so much, I think I just like the repetitiveness. I like feeling like I'm getting my shit together. I like organizing information in a way that's easy for me to digest. If I learn something along the way, that's awesome.
I'm slowly becoming more convinced that people can be "made" gay. I've been listening to erotic hypnosis and slowly I've been developing attractions towards shemales. I've never before had any attraction towards them and found them repulsive. the theme of the hypnosis has revolved around subservience to dommes and lightly references shemales. very obscurely though. prolonged exposure to it has reshaped my desires to actually find shemales somewhat attractive. I did more research and there's a whole underworld of hypnosis that's effective at turning submissive males into gays. and it works too. it's very subtle but the direction is there. everything starts rosy with only women being referenced but then shemales are referenced and eventually men. it's kind of scary.
I'm addicted to phone sex. you know those lines you call women on for $1.99-$3.99 or sometimes more? who else can admit this? Also ladies, how do you feel about it?
It feels so good to have shoes that I can wear while being on my feet all day and my feet only mildly hurt after 6+ hours. With the other shoes I was wearing, my feet would be in so much pain after 4 hours. I had to massage my feet during my lunch, wrap them every night, and take ibueprofen at least once a week. And I got these shoes on clearance only $30.
So I was fishing with some friends and I hooked what they told me was a log, but I was sure it was alive. Reeled it in to find an alligator snapping turtle the size of a dog. It's illegal to kill them, but I did anyway. It was on my land and eating our fish. They are dangerous as hell. I figured screw him.
I can't stand seeing sex scenes on TV, and even the mention of sex makes me uncomfortable. Because of this, I don't usually watch "regular" TV shows or movies - that is, live-action productions. Most of those are aimed at adults/general audience, so most of them naturally include references to sex. Almost all shows I watch are cartoons, either aimed at children or teens. I feel like a freak because of this so I don't talk about my watching habits to anyone but my immediate family.
Anyone who is Filipino in this app?
I'm training in therapeutic hypnotism as a hobby. I have some advice for a lot of you kids who have trauma. DO NOT try to relive it. A hypnotic trance will make the memory more vivid. Not accurate, but vivid because your brain will fill in the gaps and likely make it worse and make the memory even more fresh. There is NO need to go back. It will trigger PTSD. You gotta focus forward on what you want in life that will make you happy. The hypnotists all know this, but I wanted to be a smartass and try it. I went back to the place where I was bullied, I felt weak and powerless and it fucked me up for a month. My wife went back towards where she was molested as a kid. She freaked out. If you are a soldier, don't go back to that desert. Want to use hypnosis? Use it to forget. Convince yourself it was a bad dream and let it fade away. Focus on your future.
I worked at a Wendy's for about 2 months and hated it so much. The store manager was rude and clearly didn't give a rat's ass about me or any of my coworkers. They didn't formally train me on anything, just had me follow around and watch someone who worked there for a month until I had the jist. I worked at another Wendy's for a year prior, but I told them I didn't work or train in any of the sections they were putting me in. Another manager and a co-worker saw my strengths were mostly in dining room, but they never had me work out there. They just put me in positions they knew I sucked at and watched me struggle. I'm pretty sure I had my first panic attack there. Three times I cried my eyes out on the way home. I don't know how but I swear to this day the register was rigged to throw my balance off. No matter how carefully I counted change, the register would always be over or under at the end of the day. The only day it was perfect was the day I didn't have any debit/credit card payments. The Wendy's I worked at before didn't put newbies just anywhere. They'd start you on stuff like dishwashing, salad prep, and fries first, then move you up the longer you were there. The people on registers had all been there for years and knew the restaurant backwards and forwards. You would get training on a computer before working something new. Our store manager had been a district manager before. He set the bar really high for someone's manager at their first job. I only left because my mom died and I couldn't afford rent. I loved that job, came in any time they called asking for help, worked any time they wanted me. In the year I was there, only one or two people quit because they just didn't like it. At the Wendy's I hated and only worked at for two months, I was the third person to quit in those two months, and a fourth person quit right after me. With a turnover rate like that, that really tells you something about management. I hope the store manager has been replaced by someone better by now.
