I am 3 days away from going to do an internship in a country where I know no one and where they don't even speak my native language. I am so nervous and so excited and so afraid. I hope everything works out well.
Back at my last job, I only get to have a maximum of 2 hours sleep.I worked for more than 16 hours everyday with 11 straight days work and less than a day to rest(rest day). This went on for months. I would also skip lunch just to finish all the work for the day and have to do a job equivalent of 5 people's job. One time, I was too sleepy with still lots of work that my heart just beats too fast and had too many short breaths. My hands were cramping as well. No one noticed as they are busy as well. I don't even drink coffee. Thinking of it now, I'm glad I left because I could be dead by now if it continues. Btw, we were all paid just a minimum wage. Don't be afraid to leave a job that kills you. If it makes you unhappy and causes health problem, always think that there are jobs with more opportunities that treats employees better. --- 물 :)
Hey guys, its another update on the whole (Loving That Guy and now going to his house) story! I went with my bff to his place to make a fire again. I went out so he could get some messages (Touched his knee gently and not too weirdly or pervy, pay attention to him and what he said (he'd interest me in a car description really), laugh out with him, even got off track of the subject, and I could hug him and lay hands on his tummy!) And well... In 4 days I'm sleeping at his house! I can't pay gas and he gives me a bed and food, so I felt bad for asking, but he's very kind and sweet... Couldn't help but fall for him when he told us we could stay here So... Should I tell him? He is supposed to get me at work, so should I explain how I feel towards him?
It's incredible when people die. I love to hear about someome dying. It makes me want to find the body and look inside it. The pleasure of touching someone's organs is beyond what anyone could imagine. Usually corpses that hit rigor mortis aren't as fun. The lively one's seem to have more squish.
Recently I have been on a behavioral science kick and I got my wife into a few of my books. We had been going through a rough patch. Whenever I have car trouble I hide it from her. Try to fix it on my own because I KNOW she's gonna yell at me with the usual condescending, "I told you not to buy X, you should have bought Y."(Which we couldn't afford). Well recently we had some Kia trouble and she just said, "It'll be ok. We always make it work. So what's our next step?" I felt a huge weight off my shoulders. We got it fixed as always, but no fighting. Everyone felt better. Apparently she had read in one of my books how ineffective yelling criticisms at people is. It causes breakdown and anger. That constructive talk builds your bond. It's a big relief for me.
I am infinitely afraid of not being good enough. I want to ask my thesis supervisor if he actually thinks I'm worth the while or if he believes in me but I'm afraid he will laugh of me or tell me I'm not.
do u y'all just have those people around town, you know that person's face but nothing else about them? lol. i used to work at McDonald's and a customer was on the phone and I could here his conversation at the drive through cause F.Y.I at the McDonald's drive through, the entire employee staff can here every word you say. but any ways, when he's done ordering he says *I love you* he comes up to the window acting all awkward and stuff, apologizing for saying I love you. lol. of course I knew he was on the phone and it wasn't directed at me. but I remember him and see him in town all the time, in my head he's the I love you guy. as of last week I am now working with him. I wonder how this will go😂😂😂😂
So I knew this girl from school who was clearly into me. She's like an 11/10 but something is screwy with her personality so I didn't make a move. We went to a bar with some mutual friends where I had scored some backstage passes to meet a semi-famous rock band. While we were there she was flirting with drunk dudes and actually making out and making eye contact with me as she does it. So afterwards she tries to hit on me. Like she's doing her level best to make a case for a relationship. Tells me she was trying to make me jealous. I of course turned her away. Dodged that bullet. Lifehacker for anyone who hasn't figured this out. Men don't work too well with jealousy. You aren't a purse where high demand and other people having what they want makes you more desirable. I'm not gonna stick with a girl where I have the image of her getting her tits groped by other men in front of me and my friends in my head. That's not gonna make a man feel good. Isn't that kinda obvious?
Okay... this is one of my more shameful confessions. In middle school, I distanced myself from my friends because I idealized the idea of a "loner" who depends on no one. (Of course I neglected the fact that I depended on my parents...) I wanted to question the social nature of human beings. To prove that I'm strong, I guess? But that's dumb. Even so, that idealization still lingers in my mind from time to time. It's one of the reasons I'm reluctant to make any friends. (The bigger reasons being fear and complacency.)
I'm 22 years old and I have trust issues. I made a friend at the mine I work at though, he's pushing 50. Today was the third time I forgot my tag on the board when going home (For those who don't know, you put your tag on the board before you go underground so that management knows who's down there. When a blast is set, the underground needs to be clear of all employees because of gas and potential for collapses. When you forget your tag on the board, you bring production to a halt, because you're the only person who can take your tag off. You can get fired for this.) I got a phone call from my friend, who works a later shift than me and was still at the mine. I knew immediately why he was calling. He called me to tell me this the last time I forgot. Having already gotten a warning for the last time, my heart sunk when I answered and asked if all the paperwork was being taken care of. He answered, "Let's put it this way: I noticed before anybody else did, so you don't have to worry." Taking someone else's tag off the board is one of the easiest ways to get yourself fired from a mine. This man risked his career because he knew mine was at risk (and that I had left site...) People suck for the most part, so I'm glad to have somebody like that in my life. Words can't express how grateful I am. What a loyal friend.
