Hi, /adv/, I've tried this post before, but now I'm going to try in a different way:
I'll move to the US soon.
My objectives are to survive, establish, and make my life the best it can be in the there (I don't plan to return).
The plan is to arrive at an airport in Miami, with 2,5k in american dollars.
I was born in America in the 90's (got american passport, social security card, etc.), son of brazilian immigrants. My parents returned to their homeland country when I was 2 months aged, so I've been raised there (got both nationalities and know the two languages well enough, being portuguese my native language).
I've been a neet through my whole existence. I've also quitted Philosophy college, so I got no degree, and no clue about how to make money or how the street works. My moral values are high enough to keep me away from “easy cash” opportunities (any crime or contravention).
I'm a healthy 23 years old man. Fair appearance, shitty clothes. No tattoos.
My english is acceptable (reading/writing too), but not as formal as it should be for me to get a decent job.
There are no relatives there, I'll be all alone and with no other plans but the main objective. I'll owe the starter money to my relatives here in Brazil, so you can't return or ask them for more, in case anything goes wrong.
So, what do I do? It's my best plan, I'm really up to it (even considering the worst possibilities).
im great looking, underwear model body, alpha enough outside the bedroom, when I do have sex, im great.
however, my exes and current gf are submissive and anxious/nervous... and im too fucking relaxed and chill of a guy. I was never comfortable telling the girl what to do, or making power moves.. so I have a lot less sex than preferable
what's the best plan of action for breaking up with a SO you're living with?
so far i'm planning to find another apartment before i talk to him about breaking up so i can get out of there as soon as possible afterward, but living with him while i know i'm planning to break up is difficult and awkward. i'm not sure how else to handle it though
So I met a girl last night who I think is into me (her friend said she was and is adamant about us getting together). Got her number and we've been texting each other all day. Tried to see if she was available tonight but she's got some stuff going on for work. No big deal. What I'm concerned about is knowing when I might be getting too pushy when it comes to asking for a date. I told her to let me know when she's free. She apologized for not being able to do something tonight and said she'd love to hang out sometime.
Should I just continue texting... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Kept texting her a normal amount, don't go too crazy and respond to every single one immediately. Then just ask her late next week if she's free the next day. If she's ALWAYS busy Saturdays, ask her Thursday to do something Friday night. If not, then just ask her Friday to do something Saturday.
Suggest something specific though. Don't just say "Wanna hang out tomorrow?" Say something more like "Hey I've been wanting to to check out that bar/restaurant/thing, you free Saturday at around 8?" Girls like that kind of shit, not... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I want to find out how to never sleep. Is this possibly, what drugs do I take and what side effects are there.
Im a software developer.
I have 2 jobs, 1 , a day job and 2, my own company that I am running on the side line (starting to pick up now)
Ive been working late a lot this year, many nights going to bed at 2/3 AM working on personal projects and my own company and then waking up at 7 am to go to work (day job). Some nights I just go through the night. I have done this for about 50% of this year.
When I start to feel weak I... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Your body compensates for exhaustion by releasing catecholemines that make you feel awake and alert. Chronic sleep deprivation will almost certainty give you heart problems and increase your risk of getting a laundry list of diseases
I am father to 3 great kids in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Washington state. My youngest son is now 12 years old and raising him has been nothing short of a delight so far. He has always been a very kind and thoughtful child, and we have the least trouble communicating with him and disciplining him when he occasionally slips up. As far as I know, he loves his mother and me very much.
Recently he's taken an interest in hip hop, which I've supported even though sometimes the content of the music makes me nervous. For the first few months, I tolerated his new taste in music and we even listened to a few albums together. He explained some of the misogynistic and violent content to me as a real reflection of life in low income black neighborhoods, and I understood that he gets value out of the music without necessarily emulating it.
However, very recently he's apparently started to emulate it. The first problem we had with him was his apparent willingness to use the "n-word" to address me and his siblings. I made it clear to him that it was unacceptable and he stopped.
Last week, apparently a switch flipped in his brain. He will not stop shouting incredibly rude phrases, some of which I never even knew existed. Some of them are extremely vulgar. When I asked him about these new phrases, he said "It's ATL rap dad". He is grounded but he will not stop and he's started to sneak out of the house. I saw him one night very dazed, and I am worried he is getting high on marijuana.
When I try to talk to him about what's going on, he responds with "Fuck n---a wanna talk it out, fuck n---a I ain't talking out". He also randomly intersperses the exclamations, "chee" and "skirr" into his speech, as well as using the n-word constantly. He once referred to and mother as "junkyard ho lookin for a comeup by makin you cum up". His wardrobe has completely changed. He is playing video games in his room right now, and when I asked him to do with schoolwork, he apparently ignored me.
I came back later and sternly told him to do his homework, to which he responded, "Still in that place, and I'm flexin!" I looked that up and apparently it's from the song "U Guessed It" by OG Maco.
I want to support my son's interest, and I understand that exposing him to minority culture is critical for him to grow up to be tolerant and appreciative of cultural diversity. This is especially relevant given the Yale controversy that's been discussed in the news lately. I don't want him to grow up with an exclusionary mindset,... Comment too long.

1) Delete that pic because this is a worksafe board. 2) Put the alarm clock far away from your bed so that you have to walk over to it. 3) Put your toothbrush and toothpaste next to it. As soon as you turn it off, start brushing your teeth. By the time you're in the bathroom spitting and rinsing, you'll have lost the irresistible draw to return to bed.
Help me /adv/, ive been hearing voices quite frequently lately, and being only 18 im still a minor here in Nebraska. I pretty much have to bow to whatever my mother says, and I can't legally leave the home without her say so. I told her that I've been hearing voices (i have a history of manic depression) but she doesnt believe me. its almost like a crowd of people whispering behind my back, telling me i should just kill myself. [spoiler]It's starting to sound like a really good idea[/spoiler] i've talked to about a dozen therapists/psychiatrists/psychologists,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>i've talked to about a dozen therapists/psychiatrists/psychologists, but all they can do it put me on more meds that arent working. eventually they'd find a pill that worked, even if it has to be one that straight up make you too stupid to hear the voices.
It seems like every time I have a writing/speech assignment, I get very anxious knowing I have to work on it, which feels uncomfortable, and so I procrastinate quite a bit. Of course, eventually I do end up doing it, but the closer I get to the file that I'm working on, the more anxious I get. As I'm working I remain anxious and, without realizing, I walk off my computer and start pacing around with a jumbled mess of ideas in my head, trying to think of more or different ideas. Pacing like this is very wasteful because I think it happens so I would further procrastinate. I try to catch myself getting up from my chair but I don't always do, and end up spending a wasteful amount of time just pacing around and being anxious.
Not sure what to do. I have a speech assignment that's due on Thursday and I should be working on it, but even the moment I think about doing it I just get anxious and I want to get away from that feeling.
>>16462177 Yeah but what makes me anxious is working on the actual thing. I can work and keep working on it but I feel like I'm just getting so overwhelmed by everything in my head and the anxiety that I end up just walking away without even realizing. Sometimes I'll just start doing something else and go like "o shit, how did I end up doing this? I need to work on my speech", completely forgotten that I have a speech to do.
>>16462188 I know how you feel but unless you get it done soon you'll only be more anxious. It's easy to say 'face your fear' but that's really the only answer here unless you've got medication for your anxiety.
I'm having a lot of mixed feelings about what happened last night. I'm just wondering if anyone wants to listen to story and help me out. I don't think she would be browsing /adv/ so I'm probably safe here.
Thanks anon friend. I'll try my best to keep this to the point:
>Me: Make an ad, on CL have the house for a few weeks, technically a virgin, just horny and want to bang >Her: In long distance relationship, just wants sex, BF completely okay, she mentions that she wants just straight up good sex with communication, but knows I'm inexperienced >Last night, she comes over. It's kind of fucking awkward,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

It feels like a breakup in some ways. Cheer me up /adv/
I'm in this situation right now as the girl--not the first time I've done this either. Just know that whatever pain you're feeling now is just a portion of the pain she spared herself by cutting you off. It's all for the better.
