How do I move to a big city from my shit rural town. Everyone tells me you need like 35/hr and it's like 3 grand a month to live in the the ghetto. I don't need anything fancy I just want a really small room with some bro roommates and I don't mind any living conditions since I already live in shit.
I can't look at rednecks anymore I can't. Would rather live in 6x9 room on a futon in a walk up with a long commute in a ghetto with people getting stabbed in the parking lot.
>19 years old >live with parents >parents paid for community college >getting good grades >have a decent paying job for an unskilled teen >want to study engineering when I'm done with cc >don't do drugs, drink alcohol, get into trouble >have good relationships with the people in my life

>>16474110 I'm kind of on the same boat as you, Op. Except in my case I'm in uni already and have to see all these people dorming and having an experience that I may never have. I've learned to deal with it at this point and try to just make friends that do dorm so that I can chill with them some nights and not have to go home all the time. It sucks but you just have to keep on trucking, man. Not much else you can do until then. And trust me, 20 is not old at all to be dorming. You will blend right in and no... Comment too long.

Hello /adv/, I want to buy a bracelet for my girlfriend for Christmas but I have no knowledge whatsoever about the quality of jewellery and whatnot and I have a budget of 100$ to spend on it. I was wondering if anyone has already done this before and could give me good websites that could also ship to Canada Just want to give her something of a bit of value that she could hold on to and appreciate it.
Is it a turnoff if a guy tells you how he feels when you're casually dating? Or is it better to just let things progress?
Been seeing this girl for a while, not really dating, we've been friends for a while, we've had dates where we've seen a movie, or she's hung out at my place and we just chilled. We've also spent some time fooling around but no sex yet. This has been going on for months on and off. I went through the entire month of October without seeing her but we've seen each other every week since then in some capacity. I'm... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>16474114 >Is it a turnoff if a guy tells you how he feels when you're casually dating? Only if she actually doesn't want something serious. Have you ever talked about feelings in general, like anything emotional? There are people who don't think men should generally admit to or show any emotion/feeling. There are others who realize that's stupid. Just tell her. If she's turned off, that sucks but it'd be better for you to cut ties anyways since you want more... Comment too long.

I went through a break up a few months back that really did a number on me and I was fucked up for a long time. Thought about suicide for the first time in my life and it took some serious doing to get myself back out to the real world.
I now have a great job and more friends than I ever had when I was with her, but I still have days every now and then where I really just don't want to live anymore and I'm sick of the world and I want to die. Keep in mind that since the break up I've hooked up with two different girls and gotten number from countless others.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>16473917 Been through a similar boat except after 2 years ex got in touch with me and it fucked my shit hard. You've got to learn to be happy with yourself and your friends and family around you if you constantly just feel negative and depressed about this life and opportunities will pass by that you could've taken. Don't pass up on chances to find an even better girl in the future. Cultivate your interests and hobbies go to the gym(helps a ton) make yourself into who you want to be and be happy independently...

Hey docfags or nursefags, I was wondering, does this third degree burn look like it might be getting infected? Also, what's the best way to disinfect/clean this kind of burn wound? Do I rip off the skin that's potentially infected, then clean? Do I wrap it, or leave it out to let it 'breathe'?
>>16473932 How about any antibiotics of sorts? Also, non-stick bandages should work fine, correct? And should I give the peroxide time to dry before bandaging it or should I put the bandage on there while the peroxide is still working it's foaming magic?
>>16473932 Peroxide's effectiveness has been heavily called into question lately. Its supposed antibacterial properties have not lived up to their name, showing that it was usually ineffective at reducing bacteria at the site.
OP, get silver sulfadiazine cream, you should be able to find it in a decent drug store. It's used heavily to treat burns of second degree or worse. I recently had to go to a burn ward and the silver cream is what they used.

I think I legitimately might have an intellectual disability

>>16473915 You do not have an intellectyal disability if you can write graduate-level papers as a frosh. It IS possible that you might have a developmental delay of some other kind, but there is nothing wrong with your intellect.
You will need to get some psychological testing done to be sure. Fortunately, you are in college; toue campus hea;th center's psychological staff may be able to do this for you. Even if they cannot, psychology students are always looking for people to practice administering the test on.
Hi, anons! I'm a 20y/o femanon and my boyfriend of 5 months is 24y/o. We are radically different people:
Me: >introvert who likes to spend time at home alone (go out with maybe 2 friends 3 times a month watching movies, etc) >have only 2 people I really consider friends and a handful of other aquaintances >am deeply nerdy and intellectual >am not close with my family at all so I have no family life >poor immigrant family >spend most of my time at work/school/home >quiet
My boyfriend: >is extremely extroverted and outgoing >confident and assertive >has a lot of friends who he spends time with >is the opposite of nerdy >has a very active social media life >comes from a white middle-class family >is really close with his family
He is very loving and caring. He tells me he appreciates me, but we've only been dating for 5 months so we are still in our honeymood phase. He goes out to drink at bars and at parties without me (I live in the US, I can't drink yet). His facebook is filled with pictures of him and friends. It sounds terrible but I honestly feel so worthless whenever he tells me he's out drinking with his friends and I'm just home on my computer. He will ask me if I'm doing anything fun for the weekend and I tell him that I'll be home, usually. My facebook is pretty much unused. He wants to meet my family but I'm not even close to them. It would be uncomfortable as it is having dinner with them without my boyfriend. My friends are really different from him. We don't party and are pretty mellow. I feel like I can't offer him anything other than myself. We are just dating and get along well, but when it comes to meeting friends and family, I just DREAD it.
The thing is that I'm happy with the way I am, the nerdy parts and all. It's just that I feel worthless when I compare my social life to his. Has anyone ever experienced this? It's giving me so much stress. I am also inexperienced in dating, having only dated someone else for 7months before him. Thanks!
>>16473636 >What are you looking for, job prospects or a dick to suck? Only some schools are good with alums, most people don't rely on alums for jobs. Good job prospects obviously. I've been told time after time again by my professor that sending resumes through the black hole of doom and recruiters that don't know shit won't get me anywhere, and that I have to network. I'm graduating in 3 months and don't have a job; I'm currently working a dead end one just... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What kind of field are you in that you are relying on alums? It's ridiculous. You think if you want to work for a large corporate they give a shit what school you went to? THEY FUCKING HIRE PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
I'm facing an existential crisis, /adv/. Why am I here? I mean, I understand how biologically we came to be, but what about ME, as in the consciousness? Isn't it absurd that I am fully self aware now, but in the future, I'll die and lose it all? Maybe, but it's certainly depressing as hell. I can't even call it depressing, because objectively, feelings don't matter since we'll all die anyway. The only reason I'm asking for advice is that I remember being happy at one point. I want to be distracted from the whole scary concept of mortality,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>16473628 That's interesting and all, but nonetheless, I know I exist (as my consciousness). I also know that as I am know with MY consciousness, nothing else will ever be ME in (for lack of a better term) conscious identity. I'm done.
So, I've been texting with this girl that I haven't seen since middle school, things were going well and she showed hints of attraction (she even told me that she had a crush on me back then). Last week we met at her house and had a drink and all that, everything was going ok but nothing happened and we kept texting eachother until two days ago when she just stopped with her messages (she was the one that started the convo most of the time) and everytime we actually have a conversation she stops answering after an hour or so and changes subject everytime I talk...

>>16473556 That's what I was thinking, but the thing that really bugs me is that we kept talking normally after that (we met on wednesday) but then on sunday BOOM nothing. Also, I forgot to say but she keeps throwing hints whenever I talk to her.
Is there something that I can do about this? I really like this grill.
So I'm in high school and my parents caught me with some drugs. They're kinda pissed and treat me like shit now. I can sense my family really doesn't like me now. Thinking about leaving home and going to some random city and starting over, but if I do I won't get my diploma. Also don't have a car. Should I leave home or stick it out?
Hey there. So I'm in a programming course in a Canadian college currently. I'm a bit above average at it, but some people in my course aren't, specifically a girl we'll call K. K is maybe a 7-8/10, but is terrible at programming.
Because she's bad at it and probably needs better marks, I'm considering offering her copies of my code (modified of course) in exchange for sexual favours. However, I'm not sure if that is legal. Does that fall under prostitution? I am aware that it probably violates the school's policies of academic honesty... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>16473394 >Should I just talk to her IRL with no one around? i guess thats the best way as there is no proof in that case. if you want to be super cautious use formulations that are ambigious to some extend.
>>16473394 >Does that fall under prostitution? Yes. That's still trading something of value for sexual favors.
>Because she's bad at it and probably needs better marks, I'm considering offering her copies of my code (modified of course) in exchange for sexual favours. Seriously, this is going to backfire on you so hard. Don't ruin your life for a brief moment of pleasure.
>>16473383 During basic conversations, it's almost like random words come out. I start trying to pronounce, or say a different word that shouldn't be there. Normally half way through, I stop myself and get back onto normal conversation.
People always bring up that my english skills are lacking, or I need to improve on it. But I just simply can't.
so it is 7pm it is dark out I am getting ready to leave my job but there is this guy in a hoodie that has been walking back and forth by my job all day now that I am getting ready to head out he is just standing right next to the door should I wait for just leave I am kind of scared I don't work in a good area
