2023.06.06 08:51 BeefBukkake M24 with an Econ degree that he doesn’t even want to use and hate desk work. Where can I go from here?

I am a 24 year old male with a BA in Econ from a local state school and a 3.1 GPA. Didn’t want to go to college in the first place but got pressured into it by parents. Was originally an accounting major (picked it literally because it was the 1st Alphabetically) but swapped to Economics because I preferred the smaller class sizes and thought the material was slightly more interesting. I had zero interest in schooling but went with it regardless out of immaturity and not knowing myself at the time.
Graduated 2 years ago but didn’t learn much due to my major classes having been done during the pandemic where both the students and professors were far from motivated. Since then, I worked as a Temp (somehow still one) at a mortgage company doing basic administrative , clerical work. The job is easy and pays fairly decent but it is incredibly mundane and not fulfilling whatsoever. There is a fairly high number of employees being laid off since I started and I am one of the few they kept most likely because I am more trustworthy.
Where should I go from here? Are there any physical jobs that I could apply my degree to? I enjoy being physically active and would like to be on my feet or working with my hands.
I was considering enlisting in the military (Air Force) and have worked with a recruiter but there’s no guarantee I would be able to pass the medical examinations. If that doesn’t work out, where could I proceed?

2023.06.06 08:48 Vejhy Should I be honest with my crush to just get it over with it?

Hey all, I have a friend and coworker in one, and the thing that I dreaded happened. I start to have some feelings for her, normally I would just tell her and see what will happen, but because we are coworkers it is not that simple. It drives me crazy, I hate this feeling. My style is like jumping in cold water, fast in and get over with it. I care for this job, I know I am not her type, but we get along well personality wise and even if she is not perfect, I think we could be a good match.
Any advices to what to do for me to have a peace in mind again? The best thing that could happen would be me telling her my feelings and she rejecting me.

2023.06.06 08:41 dicker_machs Dämmerung Multinational Armaments L.L.C., Eden Medicare Ltd. (Staff Copy)

An increase in our operative numbers in local hospitals have drawn suspicion towards our activities around the globe as it’s not easy to explain away missing limbs or other serious injuries convincingly. As such, faced with this and wanting an alternative funding method just in case, we have created Eden Medicare Ltd., a private hospital company catering to the rich, influential and our operatives (including A.H.D.P.A. operatives [free of charge!].)
Eden currently has offices and hospitals in every major and relevant nations, but its command center and largest hospital is currently in the Amazon Rainforest, more specifically in the Amazon River basin. This not only provides us with uncountable amounts of flora to study (field studies only) and fauna to both study and consume, but also provides us with a natural beauty to give patients a comfortable recovery environment.
You will be assigned a doctor position when you arrive at the center and your position will not be changed for your entire stay, as changes in position mid-assignment causes immense confusion and annoyance to HR. Do not be concerned about the patients as they have their own guidelines to follow.
1) You will be assigned a nurse as your partner for your time here. They will not be rotated out for any reason. You will both receive a dossier that includes each other’s most recent photograph and any important identifying features along with general information. You will both be dressed in your assigned uniform along with a standard issue pistol.
1a) If the person in front of you doesn’t match the information listed in the dossier, a mixup occurred which will be resolved shortly. If the person has white eyes, alert security then shoot it if it moves closer.
1b) In general, nurses are in charge of lower, less important situations (basic illnesses and injuries) and administrating medicine/treatments, while doctors are in charge of more serious issues.
2) You will patrol your assigned area, attend to patients and assist your partner (if they request it) during the night and do your duties during the day, while every nurse will be in their assigned rooms (may change assigned rooms depending on needs) during the night and move during the day. If you encounter a nurse during the night and they say that they are patrolling in a monotone voice, shine your flashlight at them. The “person” will turn into a grey, very thin humanoid and at which point it should flee.
2a) If said creature does not flee, shoot it. Tell any awakened patients and confused nurses that a member of the local fauna managed to leap the fence and get in to the building, and that everything is under control.
3) Feel free to talk to your assigned patients and partner during the day, as not only will it allow you to better understand what they need from you as a doctor but also give you an opportunity for making friends. However, if you see a man in a three-piece suit, vacate the area immediately as what he is interested is the patients but he will happily take you too. NOTE: Bullets will ward him off but it takes far more than what your pistol can do for it to be effective.
4) No plants are allowed within the building, no exceptions. For some reason any plant that enters spreads a dangerous vine-like growth that strangles any living being that comes close. If you see any plant within the building, leave immediately and alert security.
5) Yes, you can look at the lights that occasionally appear during the night but don’t be alarmed by your quality of sleep temporarily deteriorating. NOTE: unconfirmed.
6) We encourage you to spend your free time outside within the fenced boundaries. Our location provides near-unfettered access to scenic views, fauna and flora that is found nowhere else in the world.
6a) If you see a flora sample that looks unusual to you, feel free to mark it and report the marked sample to our labs. One of our field teams will go out when they can. NEVER bring the samples within the building (see number 4).
7) If a person with pure white eyes runs up to you and begs for help, drive them away using any method you can. Shout at them, push them away, hell, point your pistol at them or shoot the ground. The “person” should run off. The “person” will kill you and assume your identity should you fail to chase them off.
7a) If the “person” runs towards the patient wing, do not worry as they have their own guidelines on how to deal with it.
8) When you are attending a patient, if they suddenly sprout vines from their wrists, tell your partner to get the syringe with the green solution in it while cutting as much vines as possible. Be sure to hold them down as survivors report excruciating pain and uncontrollable twitching while the serum is working. The vines should wither and fall off on their own after two minutes. If they don’t, evacuate and alert security.
9) You have no business being near the research labs besides providing the location of a marked sample. Do not question anything that you may hear from the labs and move along.
Although this may seem daunting, I can personally assure you that if anything happens, know that you are in the best medical facility in the world. Also, don’t piss your partner off, it would be a shame if an unfortunate mix up of medicine occurred.

2023.06.06 08:39 dingdong6699 Question on if/how I can obtain an internal document

Tl;dr at bottom
I have never sued or desired to in my life but an currently in a situation I am very upset about and believe it fits, and have an initial consultation with a local attorney on Wednesday. I was instructed to bring all paperwork so I have been debating on what I should do, if I should be trying to aquire an internal document..
My complaint is defamation/libel. Attempting to try to detail summarize:
I worked for company "X" for 10 years+. I held many positions including high ranked for many of those years. I decided to exit the company for another and put in a 1 month notice. At the end of the 1 month I would have qualified for an annual bonus, hence setting that date. I used PTO toward the end of the 1 month, and they (completely without me knowing, contacting me, etc) terminated me while I was out on PTO. They knew of course this would result in me not receiving an annual bonus by removing me from the system a week prior to my notice end, and did it intentionally. When I confronted them, very obviously upset about it, they said they had to do it to open a new spot and get someone else in. We all know it could have waited a week, and would be the correct and legal thing, but realistically what am I going to do, sue company X over it? We all knew the answer was no. So I begrudgingly took my loss and moved on, letting everyone involved know what a sh** thing that was to do. I moved on and let it go.
A few weeks later, a few reps from company X contact me about some company equipment I might still have possession of. I did still have some, since they terminated me while I was away (unjustly so). I told them what equipment I had and that they could pick it up whenever they please. They made multiple arrangements to come get it from me at my new place of employment, but every time, they didn't show. Eventually I got calls from them saying they would involve police and that it was serious. I said you can get it anytime you know where I am! You fired me unjustifiably and you want me to use my time and gas to bring the stuff back?? Yes it's yours, but if you want me to bring it to you I expect compensation, or you pick it up anytime. Eventually, one of our mutual friends/colleagues who is a police officer contacted me and said he'd be glad to be the middle man, met me at my job, and collected the items for company X and returned them. Done deal I thought, good riddance.
Fast forward a month or so and I'm hanging out with some friends/ex colleagues who work at company X for the first time in awhile. They said "So I heard you got arrested". What? No? "Yeah we heard you got arrested for stealing from company X! You're in the system and it says so!" They didn't believe that I did not get charged or arrested, even going so far as to check local PD arrests on the date. They said 100% there is a theft case written against me that claims I stole the company equipment, and I was charged and arrested. I very much was not, the officer was a friend and we had a great time catching up. My colleagues of a company I worked for for ten years think I am a thief and was arrested because of someone that has a grudge against me entering it into the system as such.
This is third party theft tracking database that tracks theft, including pictures and full details about the person and alleged theft. I asked if it had my picture and they said yes. People I've worked with all across the country can see this. It would certainly prevent me from being rehirable. I also certainly intended to have company X as a future backup plan if I ever needed, prior to this they would definitely take me back. This has now affected how my colleagues view me (some haven't even answered calls) and affects my future income and employment potential. I think this is defamation and libel to the definition.
My biggest concern for a lawsuit is attaining the case document. I am somewhat worried that if it gets subpoenaed or something that the same person, who's known to do shady stuff (such as this!) Would delete it, tho I'm sure they have a backup for legal reasons, I don't really know. I have been trying to get the friends I hung out with to give some detail, which they have, but of course I need the actual document or a picture of it or something. I of course could ask for that, and they might provide, or they might freak out and throw red flags, or worry about themselves getting in trouble for sharing the info with me.
If I happen to have someone's login information from when I worked there before, is it legal or ok for me to login and get the document myself? Would it be considered hacking or something else illegal if I was given this login information at the person's will at the time? If not possible, how should I go about this? I don't know if it's a great look to show up to my lawyer on Wednesday and say "My entire case is an internal document with company X that I don't have access to."
Please advise, thank you in advance.
Tl;dr: defamation/libel: Worked for company X many years. Company X wrongfully terminated me earlier than my given notice. Sad but oh well. I had company equipment in my truck, they contact me weeks later about. I say come get it at my new job, they agree. Multiple attempts, they fail to come every time. A common friend who is a police officer volunteers to middle man, he picks up the stuff from me. A month later I am out with ex colleagues from company X, they spill that I am on an internal document stating I stole company property, and was charged and arrested for theft. This never happened. Ex colleagues think I am a thief and was arrested. I was very tenured with company X and now my reputation is ruined, they would have definitely taken me back prior to this.
My question is if I have someone's login info who works there, can I use it to retrieve the document? How else can I retrieve the document?

2023.06.06 08:39 The_No_Care_Bear Feeling guilty for not helping people on the side of the road at night. Should I do more?

I (29F) drive around late at night on dark country roads by myself a lot. There's nothing to do here except go to the bars at night, and that's just not really my thing. Friends have different schedules/live far away, and I get bored with TV so I go for a drive. I live in a rural city in the northwest US so we have lots of nice open roads and dirt roads to roam and I enjoy seeing the nocturnal animals as I pass them by. I also come upon people in broken down or wrecked vehicles outside of town at night frequently, like at least once every other week or every week sometimes. The issue I'm having is a I never stop to help these people. I feel super guilty everytime, but I'm a women by herself at night and I just don't have the courage to stop, I can't get over the sense of danger I feel.
Tonight a young guy was blocking half of a dirt road and had crashed into the rocks on the side of the road. He was walking around with a flashlight and I kept driving, but my route has me turn around and go back where he was, so when I passed him again shortly after I stopped, rolled down my window, and asked if he was alright (he said he wasn't hurt), if someone was coming to get him (he said none of his friends were answering), if he had AAA or roadside service (he said no). It was only about 20 minutes from my house in town, and it's not a super small town. It's about 30,000 people big, so we have all the amenities such as multiple tow trucks companies and taxis. He was definitely close enough to get help because I've been stranded even farther out of town on dirt roads in that area and had no trouble getting a tow truck out there, there's good cell service and it's not that far from town. I have recovery straps so I could have possibly unstuck his car, but idk if it'd be running after and I didn't feel comfortable giving him a ride or even getting out of my car to help since, again, I was by myself, late at night, on an empty dirt road where there's not any houses near by.
I feel so guilty leaving people in those situations though. I've been stranded on mountain passes more than once in my life and was lucky enough to have people stop and help me, so I feel like I should pay it forward. I just get too scared and feel like the risk isn't worth it when they could get a tow truck. I know they're expensive as hell if you don't have roadside coverage, and not everyone can afford that, though.
Do you have any tips to feel safer so I can help people at night when I find them, or should I just leave them like I do because it's risky for a solo woman out there?

The prices are surprisingly low, making it a sensible option for everybody. The overhead canopy light and sound show voids the audio when well-known songs play, in addition to the surrounding light show.

The Great Depression-era construction that dammed the Colorado River and created Lake Mead, The Hoover Dam looms large in Las Vegas history and 726 feet high is the curving facade's striking aspect from any of the vantage points reported in the guides, boat tours, or flights from Lake Mead. It took nearly 20 years and 18,000 people to build the dam on the Colorado River, and it's definitely worth taking a look at the miles at its end.

6. Park Theater

Among the biggest entertainment trends today is the changing role of production halls, with changes in entertainment patterns prompting star entertainers and notable musicians to populate casino showrooms. Bestowing praise on their followers, performers which include Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Aerosmith, and Cher were among the stars who were regular tenants of the park theater. The venue seats approximately 5,200, and VIP seating offers patrons the option of hiring their own dedicated staff to handle their cocktail needs.

7. The Mob Museum

Comprised of one of a former courthouse building's former sections and an amphitheater where part of the Kefauver Hearings took place, this summit narrates stories of organized crime all over the world, and, particularly, in Las Vegas, where the Mafia ran its agenda with the help of law officials. Permanent exhibits feature a vintage electric-chair model, a fragment of the Saint Anthony hairdryer.
Valentine's Day featured a wall covered in Levine's Massacre , as well as a thrilling slot machine in a speakeasy exhibiting all alcoholic beverages. For an extra fee, you may participate in special adventures like the Crime Lab, the App Store Simulation of Firearms or a private tour of the area's diamond engagement ring distillery where you can purchase a glass of champagne.

8. Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area

When visitors to Las Vegas find out that The Grand Boulevard is actually 40 miles of wilderness situated near a metropolitan area, they're usually quite curious. After all, the city is home to canyons and mountains, which provide the type of hiking Las Vegas visitors enjoy living here. Visit Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area, where rock walls are lined with athletic hikers along classic trails and crevasse-ridden ravines feet in length lead to breathtaking foothills. Not into hiking? Go on a scenic, 13-mile loop in the park to catch a morning or sunset view of the surroundings without enduring the heat.

9. The Golden Knights at T-Mobile Arena

Las Vegas has been in need of a professional sports team for many years, and the team was welcomed to the city in 2017, fulfilling the locals' longed-for wish for its arrival at that time. A remarkable trend brought by the team's debut was cemented in Las Vegas's hearts, and the tremendous support the team received nationwide and worldwide shows just how popular the group has become. If you live near Las Vegas throughout the NHL season, stop by the Strip-side T-Mobile Arena to catch a game. This is where the black and gold and the halftime show enjoy the game, attracting devoted fans. Outside of the NHL, it is hockey à la Las Vegas.

10. The Venetian Las Vegas

An attractive resort and amusement complex that provides gondola rides and elaborate d cor, the Venetian incorporates St. Mark's Square in its expansive indoor and outdoor models. Inside the central plaza, the scenery has Frommer's around the basin. Relax in deluxe comfort at The Venetian, as it has some of The Strip's largest suites and has numerous pools across a Romanesque garden.

11. The Peppermill

Unless you haven't been to Peppermill, you haven't really been to Las Vegas. The neon front of the Peppermill 24-hour diner pulsates with bright citron paint. It welcomes guests to sit down in velvet booths that are as savory as plates of eggs, hash browns, and piled-high fruit salads. The ending section of the Fireside Lounge is an enclosure that you could go to before or after your meal, and a lovely throwback to the 1970s, a time when disco was popular and disco balls were everywhere. Consume nacho chips and a 64oz Scorpion Bowl by a fire pit so you and your guests can get away from your guests, with the fire crackling just outside.

12. Pinball Hall of Fame

Arcade game enthusiasts should make a beeline most definitely for the Pinball Hall of Fame, a world famous for its dozens of outstanding pinball machines and vintage games that not even the most hip modern Mercedes-Benz vans can match. Bring your quarters.

13. Lake Las Vegas

Just 16 miles east of the Las Vegas Strip, Lake Las Vegas has a massive selection of hotels, golf courses, restaurants, entertainment, outdoor recreation and water activities. The lake is safe for stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, fly fishing, and rowing. Take a boat cruise or a dragon boat race, then tie up on the shore for ground concerts in spring, summer, and fall.

14. The Bellagio Conservatory

Part of the reason Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens is such a great place for free outings is that it constantly refreshes its garden and grounds. Piling up vegetation in the 24-hour gardens will present you with an opportunity to check out a spectacular botanical display that includes a stunning combination of plants. It's akin to a miniature Disneyland for plant enthusiasts.

15. High Roller Observation Wheel

19. Las Vegas Springs Preserve

The spa-like Himalayan salt cave is the number one tourist attraction here. Features that help ease allergies and congestion are contained here, too.

Tourists to Las Vegas go out of their way to witness the Bellagio signature dancing fountains. The fountains covering several acres are located near the hotel. MUSIC gets the water running every 30 minutes and a few times of day at night. Not just free of cost, this outstanding fountain has been immortalized by the production of Ocean s Eleven.

21. The National Atomic Testing Museum

Bear in mind that throughout the 1950s, a lot of individuals were strolling towards the street until The Strip, still watching their wild mushroom cloud pictures.

2023.06.06 08:36 IDProG Quiet Quitting For The Win

I am new to work, working at a job for a company. That's all the introduction for now.
In my country, the salary is calculated monthly instead of hourly. That means employers can ask me to work for any hours they want. The law does not limit the maximum time to work, but states that the standard is 40 hours/week (the monthly salary is decided with the assumption that the employees work for 40 hours/week). Sounds like a recipe for disaster, am I right?
Furthermore, there is no law for minimum wage for part-time, internship, and hourly-based jobs. As a result, the salary of these kinds of jobs is, like, 2-5 times lower than the minimum wage after converting the salary to hourly at best, and $0 at worst (usually internships. Lots of unpaid internships here, it's actually insane). This means that none of these are worth it at all, so only full-time jobs are worth it.
Luckily, there are hidden gems here, jobs that are labeled "full-time", but only require, like, 12-15 hours/week to do. The salary sucks if I actually work for 40 hours/week, but it is very nice if I only do it for 12-15 hours/week. Furthermore, the jobs are either mostly or fully remote, meaning that I don't waste 10-20 hours/week driving a car and money paying for its fuel, and, the best part, I can work multiple jobs.
I am not a lazy person. While I implement quiet quitting very strictly, I don't spend the rest of my time slacking off. I usually do some kind of bootcamp or online courses so I have a stronger portfolio and can apply for more jobs with more salary. I can spend up to 101 hours/week (This is not a random number. I have checked my schedule) to do work if the work is well rewarded.
But, if it's not well rewarded? Absolutely not. Instead of working hard, I usually just contribute with ideas (Sounding smart while meeting). Impressing your employer is so much easier if your goal is to get more salary than working more hours. Usually, employers do not care one bit how much you work, especially if the salary is calculated monthly.

2023.06.06 08:31 hijesushere I think I'm getting the hang of this... can anybody with a meager 4 hours to spare let me know if my spell actually works? You can clock out any time you want...

Edit: edit: Jesus christ its 4 hours long. I enjoyed it tho, kind of a neat little ridearooski or whatever. Originally posted in the bipolar subreddit. Man I know a lot of kpop songs. Make sure and use the YouTube app if you're on mobile, when it was pulling up in browser the subtitles weren't working. Not all of them have subtitles. Enjoy the music.
Don't read ahead, don't watch ahead, just go down the path, or turn back now. It doesn't matter either way. I made a playlist with my bipolar ass... I'm not sure how long it is or I'd warn you, i wanna say around 3 hours, it's all music. I'm gonna post it here, and then start it and see how long it takes to get thru the whole thing. Then I'll update the beginning. Have fun, wear headphones to have the same experience that I had. <3
Instructions: next paragraph to be read after preceeding song, but, honestly, I don't know why I even bothered trying to make a note about something because all anybodies going to get out of this post is extreme mental illness, but like, it might make you feel something, i dunno. Sorry you guys, I'm chill. Have a good one, homies. Listen to some music if youre bored. It's just my sillyhead mind on full display. I wanted to play Danny Brown so many times, that just wasn't what the story was about this time. Yall stay safe. Lemme know if you need anything. Take your meds. ✌️🤙
(This is going to be long but its all optional) What's up homies! I'm diagnosed as Bipolar 1. It was funny, like, in highschool, so like 2008 - 2012, anyways, I knew that the rock band Avenged Sevenfold were angels. The lead singer is Gabriel, and the other guys are other Archangels, that's why they do the naming scheme that they do, Johnny Christ, Snynsyter Gates, M Shadows, ect, because they're some ancient dorks and that's the kind of nerd trash we like to pull. So I forgot about that because I pushed it away because like, um, hello, not a moron.
Then a couple years go by, I'm on psychedelics at my friend's house. Long story short, I have a conversation with Gabriel, I give them a song, I tell them to put a Mexican restaurant song on their album if the conversation is real, and I left it at that. So a couple of months go by, their new album comes out. The song that I gave to the voice on the trip is on the album, here, I'll link it to you. It's this one.
So I like wrote it about myself and what I needed to do and stuff... like it was a message to me. And avenged sevenfold, they've got a ton of angel imagery in all of their stuff, I mean their symbol, the deathbat, which is a skull with wings. Then there's their music, I'll link some of the more obvious stuff. << Exhibit A << get it? << I mean watch this video.
That's all I'll show you of a7x... look into them though, if you're in any way curious. I could be way off the mark, but that's what happened... it is what it is. I'm not worried about it, you shouldn't be either. But like, that's my band. Those are my bros. Or, you know, I have something. But I don't live my life like I'm sick: I live my life like I'm going to change yours. Because that's what I do.
So like... haha, this is gonna be hilarious. So you guys know all about receiving messages in songs type of deal.... me and Red Velvet and Everglow have been doing that since like... I dunno... 2014? Whenever everglow came out... but, basically, Red Velvet are uh... my girlfriends, back home, and they all came down with me to be my message system to wake me up. Because I got woken up, I remembered who I was in 2016. After that, it's just been messages in Kpop songs keeping me afloat. I'll show you. So Red Velvet has been sending me messages for a long time. Here's probably one of the most impactful ones. Remember, from your perspective, you're Archangel Michael, and you've planned all of this. You've put these people where they needed to be. You've designed the whole set. So to receive the messages is no big deal, right? So here, check it. I'm actually gonna watch this one with you guys, because it always hypes me up.
Ok, so, maybe you can see a little bit why I'm at least getting screwed with a little bit, you see the lyrics? It's like they're talking straight to me man. And its like, kpop has been nudging me along, no matter what mood I'm in in reality or whatever place I'm at, the right song always comes out at the right time. For instance I was struggling with myself on whether or not I was going to move forward with any of this. This is my choice, I'm not suffering from a maladiction. I can choose to tell people or not tell people, I choose to share, I want connection. So anyways, look at this one, it was exactly what i needed to hear:
I know, I know... kpop girls aren't telling me to come pick them up. They are driving me to do something, though, however small that ever may be. And there's this thing I've always done to show people that I'm an angel without actually telling them. I put my thumbs together and spread my hands out, it's like code. And remember, these are all coming out at specific times. Watch this one, look at all the symbolism:
Man, I don't even know what to play after that one. Thats pretty much it you guys, that's basically all I wanted to show you, everything else is just going to be extra. It's all a complete waste of time anyways. I'll show you some more... let's see, there's other bands. There's Everglow. Like how it works is, we get everything ready in Heaven (we've got time), and then we like funnel everything to the earth to be put in when and where we will it to. Angels are like mega consciousness, we write scripts and, whatever, you're not going to believe me anyways. Let's see. << fantastic song, really great message. I just don't think everglow is talking about themselves here. I know, I know, this is High Octane Narcicism if it's ever existed... if I'm such a narcicist then why are you such a sweet lil puppy dog huh, I could just numnumnum, oh why yes I could, I could just numnumnum all on those wittwe toesies, oh yes I could. Alright, one more everglow and we'll move on. Everglows a pirate, you say? Hmmm, what could that be code for...
I get it... but at least you guys aren't gonna judge me for it, because you guys can relate, right? Don't yall have stuff like this in your own lives? Anyways, there's one line in particular in this aespa song that gets me... see if you can figure out which one is the one messing with my head
Because like... I lost my memories and... it's whatever. Let's wrap back around to another Red Velvet video. You know how like, it's scripted? And like, I'm controlling the page? Well check out the symbolism and more obvious stuff in this next one... maybe you won't see it... it's obvious to me, but, well, you know 🤪
There's just... I dont know what to play next... that's really it, basically. I know it's dumb, but, I mean, I'm undettered, you know? Like I don't mind being classified as mentally ill, it's fine. I can still work something out. Let's see... dang feel my rhythm.... see they're all timed.... I'm like a sleeper agent haha and they had to wake me up but... it's stupid, I know. << this ones just a phenomenal song
Here's another one, straight up about God. Is Red Velvet a Christian band? I thought they were just general pop.
You cant take it away from me. I'm stronger now than I was when I didn't know. I fell for anything. Now I know which side I'm on. I don't listen to human beings about reality bro... I dont care how many degrees you've got. I'm God's Son, what are you going to do about it? I'm mentally ill? No I'm not. What else? I'm a narcicist? I love you, what else you got. I'm a troll? Go ahead.
My point is, I'm as mentally ill as you want me to be. If you want another patient... another sad case to be kept away, here I am. If you want me to do what I'm supposed to do, and free the earth, then I'll do that instead. You all are my guests, please, do whatever you wish with me. Let's see, what else should we play. Should I go? I guess I'll just show you guys some more cool songs while I'm here. This next ones a bop, I'm gonna listen to it too. I've been watching all the kpop vids with you.

I just wanna listen to this one one more time, then imma head out. I should probably be doing something with my day instead of posting random videos on like, random subreddits. But I guess this one isn't random, because I have bipolar too. Well, bipolar 1, too. Bipolar 1, as well. Also. I, you and i; gosh man, you guys should see me, I'm always swinging for the fences. Can't; in a crowd dude, my gosh bro, you wouldn't believe the carnage. Like upset me, you know what I mean? Like see what happens.

Man, turns out it was a total bop. Well guys I guess that wraps things up for me. If you stayed for any of the music I hope you had a good time, I don't really have anybody to DJ for so I thought maybe fellow bipolars would be able to relate to some of these songs.

2023.06.06 08:29 annonymoususer20221 Gallagher Girl Plotholes - Thoughts?

I’m in graduate school now lol but I read this series omg over and over again 10-15 years ago when I was little. Going back over it I saw the amount of diet culture in the book and such an emphasis on talking about weight and body sizes no wonder I ended up with an Ed. But besides that ally Carter would always do an awful job of describing settings like ID be like wait what when did they get here? And then re read and realize I wasn’t confused when I was younger lol the settings really weren’t described well.
Which leads me to the plot holes like ally why 😭😭 1. Why did Catherine die from suicide? Why did she suddenly give up being a part of the circle ⭕️ randomly one day? Like the fire that was driving her gave out. Why? Did she realize Zach didn’t love her anymore like what triggered that? 2. What the hell happened to Preston lmao? He said okay I’m leaving. Leaving to where lol? Also did he end up with macey but then he left? That was so confusing why does only cammie get a happy ending lol 3. Why did catherine hate Gallagher academy? Her backstory wasn’t explored at all? I assume she came from trauma and had shit parents but why did she hate the Gallagher academy? Did she never fit it, did she never want to be at a spy school , why? And why did she become so angry? Where did that anger psychologically stem from and what stoked it to get strong enough for her to join the circle? 4. I wished that her backstory with Zach was explored in flashbacks maybe or something idk. Bc Catherine loves zach. I imagine in Catherine’s shitty life of never feeling like she fit into the world, zach for the first 10-12 years of his life before he found out she was evil or flawed was a source of unconditional love for her. She never had to fight for his love I imagine that felt so amazing. And I wonder what it was like when he realized who she was and what that love being ripped away from her kind of did to her. She seems so manipulative when we meet her always saying “hello sweetheart” (she loves him but knows he won’t ever come back) but I imagine there was a time where she said that to him and meant it but now she knows their love is gone and maybe had a break because of it? 5. Where did Joe meet Zach lmao?? Like did he work at the school? How did he become his mentor. And did they just randomly start fighting the circle one day like a 15 year old boy probably younger and a 30 year old man? Like wut how did that happen lol. 6. How did those secret exits that kept getting blocked off randomly keep re opening like wtf lol. And why were they described as tiny but next thing you know cammie is walking down it without crouching. Idk again ally’s setting lol. 7. Who exactly are the circle and what do they do lol? This was never explained besides them wanting a list. Yes they’re a terrorist organization but WHAT DO THEY DO. Before Catherine was obsessed with cammie and her list like wtf was she doing you know? It seems like there’s so many branches too so it’s like what are they even doing if they’re not on the same page lol
Idk I so want to make this into a show one day if I end up somewhere in Hollywood lol and my first thing would be to explore these questions that were left so unanswered like Zach’s mother wound/ mommy issues etc.

2023.06.06 08:28 Dersu02 Shortage civil servants in Flanders.

According to this headline, unfortunately I have no access to the article, the local government in Flanders has problems finding people. I was wondering does this concern only certain vacancies for which there is a lot or competition from the private sector like engineers, architects and is this linked to an application process that is just too long and complicated (written exams, tests, oral exams spread out over several weeks) ?
I had the idea a local government job was a much desired position. That it is complicated to find Dutch speaking candidates and/or bilingual candidates in Brussels is logical and the adhering to Selor tests and strict diploma requirements by the government does not help either; the private sector has lots of examples that competencies are a far better indicator

2023.06.06 08:26 Pixeon2000 How on earth do I get a job?

For context, I live in a college town with ALOT of businesses, both small businesses and corporations. Everywhere is saying they’re hiring, yet it seems no matter how many places I apply I never hear back. I only get an interview 1/15 applications. I have a pretty decently balanced resume for entry level jobs, with experience in food service, cashiering, and delivery driving. Why won’t anywhere hire me?

2023.06.06 08:23 tkpiou The Story Of How I Built My Successful GC Company by The Age of 26

This gonna be a long one but I figured id share my story after lurking here for a while to let everyone know that making good money, creating independence, and enjoying your business can all happen in a short amount of time!

I was a young lad back at the age of 17 trying to figure out what i was going to do with my life. I was barely getting through school, was more interested in working and making money. I was on a program where my senior year i only attended school 3 days a week and only went until 12:00pm. This gave me the opportunity to go work my awful part time jobs at car washes and car dealerships detailing cars. It was at this time i thought i could start a little side gig selling mobile detail service in my neighborhood. It took off and i started really getting client and making some money but nothing that would justify full time work when i graduated. I also did not really enjoy the work. I was always good with my hands, i worked on my own cars, built my own ramps and what not when i rode BMX bikes growing up and walls always able to create and see drawings in my head for assembly and put them to paper. I was set to graduate halfway through my senior year so i could start working.

My Father has been in the commercial glazing industry for his entire life, at the time of my graduation he had been at a very large midwest privately owned commercial glazing company as a project manager. He hesitantly despite knowing about my pot smoking and partying habits got my foot in the door and got me an interview and a job in the fabrication shop fabricating the glazing systems to go out into the field for install. I started out as the low guy on the pole just freshly turning 18, getting put with the grumpy ass old men to assemble frames and caulk all of the system dams for water control. I hated it. After about 2 months i got the opportunity to run the fabrication and assembly for a small commercial storefront project with 2 helpers in the shop. This meant i got all of the cut specifications, field an assembly drawings, and details. I essentially had to start with raw full length stock materials and cut, layout and install the clips and brackets, build the frames, caulk and weap, pack and ship the project. This is when i realized that i could actually do something with this because by this time i had essentially learned the ins and outs of every commercial glazing system on my own in my freetime from product manuals so i could at least set myself apart from the other guys in the shop. I finished the fab job 2 weeks ahead of schedule without any mistakes that had to be corrected in the field. I worked in the shop for another 2 weeks and the operations manager decided i should go to the field to learn the installation process since i had progressed quickly.

I started in the field the same way i did in the shop, they where testing me to see if i could handle the vulgar, raw, and miserable world of commercial construction field work. I spent 3 months on a large curtainwall and storefront installation project. I started by caulking dams on curtain wall that had to be stick built in the field. I then go promoted to setting glass and running oil covered vinyl all day to hold the glass into the system. They then bumped me up i got to sit in a boom lift all day and caulk ssg glazing systems. I at this point met a girl in a the state i was from on vacation and because things weren't going well at home and i kind of hated what i was doing i decided to move there.

I moved to this new state and secured a position at a company that built and installed their own residential and commercial glazing systems. Conservatories, folding glass walls, skylights, and more. The position i took was a field laborer traveling to install conservatoires throughout the northeast. I started with a crew of roughneck guys and quickly found my pace and was learning the system quickly, managing my tasks on my own, and the big thing was i became the go to guy for layout with the foreman. I really enjoyed layout and was damn good at it. After 7 months traveling i didn't like being on the road and by coincidence got a call when i was in Maine that next week from the management team that they wanted to bring me into their massive fabrication and manufacturing facility to better learn the system and the preparation process for everything before it got to the installers.

I went home and started working in the assembly department, essentially all of the parts for the structures where cut, pre drilled and prepped and the assembly team built the structures in the facility to ensure everything was going to work in the field. this really gave me the full up and up on the entire process of the system they produced and used. After 2 months i was brought in and offered a position in estimating.

I joined the estimating team and spent 6 weeks learning every in and out of their entire product lineup, pricing structure, how to assemble professional estimates and proposals and i learned intermediate level AutoCAD drafting. I essentially would get a project on my desk and draw the structure as it was to be built in cad then used the drawings to create my takeoff and bid the job. i did this for 6 months before i realized how awful the management, staff, turnover, and moral was within this organization. I made the dumbest move i could have ever made and left a job paying 70k a year to an uneducated almost 20 year old with no other employment lined up.

i did end up securing a position as a senior pm at another small commercial glazing company that set me up for failure by allowing their estimator to underbid every large project but ridiculous amounts of money before i arrived without anyone noticing. so every job that cam across my desk was a disaster from the get go. I spent 9 months putting out fires, managing gc relationships that where toxic due to the position i was put in etc. But i did learn critical project management procedures and how to deal with emergencies on the fly and client management in tough scenarios.

Fast forward a bit and i moved back to my old state with said girl and take a job at a failing commercial glass company as a field/shop laborer and stayed for 3 months. I Left and took an opportunity to try residential glazing by installing custom glass shower doors, i ran my own truck did 3 installs a day with a helper and did this for 9 months. I had an opportunity come up to work with one of those 1 day bath install companies that advertise religiously. I had just built my first home, my fiance was unemployed and i needed more cash badly.

I met with their operations manager and it was all layed out that i would be an employee but only would be payed a percentage of the cost of the sold job for the bathroom upon completion of install. I essentially had all control in my hands to make as much or as little as i wanted but it was all up to me. Despite the lack of a safety net i took the risk and accepted the offer. i trained with another installer for 2 weeks and set out on my own. Typically these companies sell these jobs for 8-11k depending on the exact scope and accessories. 2 man teams where typically doing a job in 12 hours or basically a day in a half and the jobs where all over the state. I thought there had to be a more efficient way to do it because i got 10% of the job sold price as my pay. by the time i paid for a helper, my fuel, and what not 800-1100 in 2-3 days wasn't enough. I let my helped go and decided i was going to do it on my own. After spending weeks trying new methods to get faster and create a better product i was doing install on my own in 8-10 hours and clearing 3-4k a week gross before taxes and fuel expenses. I was hungry to be successful and finally make good money. This continued for about 5 months until they hit a sales dead period and there wasn't enough work to keep all 4 install crews busy but maybe 1 job a week and i approached my operations manager about another opportunity in the company. Patio conversions

Essentially this was a window and door, bath, and conversion company. These conversions consisted of taking existing covered porches and patios and turning them into 3 season or 4 season rooms. so you got the whole package. layout, framing, insulation, windows and doors, electrical, hvac, and interior and exterior finishes. these job paid big. on average a job takes 5-10 days and pays out 8-16k dollars to the installer. of course i had a couple helpers but i was absolutely crushing it after only a couple of months. This is where i really started to learn the ins and outs of commercial construction.

One day i was approached on a Facebook page about a gentleman with a residential remodeling company near me that was looking for an operations manager. they specialized in high end luxury remodels and also made their own cabinets. I met with him and decided even though the operation seemed small and mismanaged i could make it work. I took a pay decrease so i could work less hours and be home more as my fiancé had just had our daughter and the other company didn't even let me off to go to the appointments.

What i didn't know was that the owner of this business was the slimiest most Narcisitic, ego fueled person i have ever met in my entire life. He was running a GC business with the expectation that every sub, employee, etc was going to be a LEGEND and create only the most perfect unmatched quality product when given low Quality materials, piss poor planning, awful schedules and communication, etc. I quickly learned that i was going to be burned if i didn't think of something quick because the castle was under siege and i saw what was coming. i am 21 at this time. Well inevitably the following week i as an operations manager trying to keep a sinking ship afloat and out in the field tearing up tile from an under slab plumbing leak from before i was at this place, trying to rebuild an entire kitchen in 3 days by myself and i just was over it. Told him that i was putting in my notice and was done. I get called into the office that Friday and was told i was being let go, i was given a personal check for my weekly salary of 1000 dollars and made to sign a non compete and hold harmless agreement if i wanted my pay. i was paid as a 1099 under the table so he wasn't responsible for costs associated with employees. Basically i set myself up to get screwed. i signed everything took my check and left. Check bounces, im broke, he wont pay and im jobless with a fiance and a 6 month old. This was the lowest i had ever felt in my life and i literally was about to loose everything.

It was at this time my wheels started turning and i realized that all of these residential companies i worked for had multiple things in common. The client communication was terrible, their execution was terrible, and their image was awful. They looked all shiny and great during the sales process but as soon as they had a contract and a check the client experience didn't matter. So i thought to myself, i know construction now, i now a fair amount project management and business operations, and i see a hole in the market. so i started my company with the little money i had left. i registered with the state, bought a logo from someone on fivver, made a facebook page, a wix website, and started marketing.

This was great but it takes time to pickup traction and get jobs, i wasn't going to make money being a handyman so i needed supplemental income with flexibility in my schedule. I connected with a local fence contractor who was small and needed and installer who got paid by the linear for building fences. The money was decent but the work was hard and labor intensive. But it gave me a chance to hire a couple guys and teach them how to do it so i could start jobs and leave the jobsites to run estimates for my company. After many free estimates and 1:00 am mornings in the office writing quotes i just wasnt getting the jobs i needed. I needed a way to make sure someone wasn't tire kicking before i spent time and money doing a free estimate. So i started charging $200.00 for an in home consultation and bid package which would be credited to the client in full if they used us for the project. This was not well received due to me not being able to present it correctly in the pitch over the phone but when i did holy shit it worked like a charm. my conversion rate on estimates went form 16% to over 65% in a matter on 3 months.

I started getting good big jobs in good neighborhoods, i started finding really great subs and built my list. I started building brand image, internal documents, repeatable procedures for every job etc. this went on for a year and a half and i finally made 85k take home my first full year in business. Then the covid thing happened.

I thought everyone is freaked out and doesn't want us in their homes for estimates etc. how do i difference myself and create a luxury experience for clients without being intrusive during the lockdowns. i had started modeling basic things in SketchUp and new there was a lot of opportunity in 3d rendering. so i shifted our model and we became a design build firm. So essentially we are selling a design and rendering package to clients with a bid so that they can see what their project would look like before we ever go under contract. The rendering sells the job no matter the cost as long as you have the correct client base and are pre qualifying well.

I had a friend i grew up with that had gotten an architecture degree and was doing SketchUp 3D modeling, renderings, and 2D architectural drawing sets for a shed company as a freelancer and we can up with pricing and decided i was going to pursue this model. So i learned how to be a sales wizard and started selling $1,500-$5,000 design packages over the phone before i ever stepped foot in someones home. we designed and went through the process and send them a price. if they use us they get a full credit applied to the job for the amount of the design if not they own the drawings and information. I was making 50% GP on designs for jobs that never sold just to go out and measure and spend some time going through it with my designer. Our close rate on paid design bids sent went to 86%. This was the end of year 2 going into year 3

Year 2 Gross Revenue was $364k
Year 3 Gross Revenue was $597K

This is all on my own using subs, no in house staff, off the shelf management software, no paid marketing. Just Facebook groups, referrals, and subs.

In June of Year 3 I streamlined my process. I farmed out all business management (bookkeeping, Payroll, Phones, Etc.) and created a concrete repeatable process and procedure system that would be used on every job to ensure consistent management and quality. I hired a project manager and got him trained to manage all of the subs and all aspects related to the field and installations.

I am Proud to say that at June 1 of 2023 at 26 years old with only one Employee we have contracted and collected deposits on $848,000.00 worth of work, our schedule is booked until the middle of September and we are on track to hit just over 1.1 mil in total revenue at an average gross profit of 47%.

I have no formal training in business management, project management or anything to get me to this point. i have spent countless hours researching, reading, failing, and fixing everything in my business. its a cut throat game but if your willing to work your ass off and never quit, do amazing work, and make sure you prioritize client experience start to finish you will have people waiting years for you to do their job.

We are booked through April of 2024 for outdoor projects. Find a hole in the industry in your service area and take full advantage and change the remodeling or building game so us contractors can be looked at as professionals who have earned our ability to enjoy what we have worked for instead of drunk hacks in a shitty pickup.

Thanks for listening to my Ted Talk, get to work!

2023.06.06 08:20 CrippledPeasant1 Gambling with a degenerate edge .

I was bored so i was thinking, know what maybe i'll try to do something like what KC did and do a roadtrip. So i planned on doing 3 days and hit few casinos on the way.
I was planning on doing the roadtrip after i finished my job and start at night (so there's less traffic) time preferred before midnight, but by the time i finished packing it was already 2am and instead of sleeping in and going the morning, i instead just decided to go ( i mean it's prime time no traffic so why not just go).
I reached my 1st Casino stop and their tables were closed because i got there too late. So a lil disappointed and a lil bit mentally unstable, i just decided to plop myself down onto a slot machine and max bet a couple hundred here and there.
Drove to my next Casino and of course, a lot of the tables were closed and i saw a Spanish21 table, i'm not seeing any Blackjack table, guess they don't have it so might as well. At the table, guy to my right just some random guy small betting, then few minutes later guy to my left joined and he was doing the whole "pretending he's a ploppy garbage" how he talks and how he was mildly betting. The count of 10's was high, i did big bets 3 hands and he split 7,7 and he got stiff hands and hit them busting both his hands getting 10's on each stiff vs dealer 6... So there, I lost my whole bankroll after that stunt he pulled. After i lost all my money, confirmed that he was counting after 1st time he bet big was after that round which further increased the 10's A's ratio remaining. What sickens me even more about this was that guy on my right was signaling to the guy on the left what the count was.
With money gone, I'm already there, so might as well go sightseeing whatever else was in the casino. and 2 minutes later i saw a Blackjack table open (Yeah you heard right, all i had to do was walk 2 minutes longer to get to an open blackjack table) ... Then went to cashier did Cash Advance $3,000.
Played on the Blackjack table alone . And just like that as expected oh wow, got most my money back. Throughout the whole thing, the pitboss took an interest in me, so i thought know what, lets give her a show, the count was obviously a little bit negative just after the last round so i decided to table MAX 4 hands and BAM! got all my money back Net Zero.
After that round, nearing the end of the shoe, the count was high, and i just decided to leave. Could've went to a motel and sleep, I'm sleep deprived, a little bit of a headache, but instead I just went back home, 10am in the morning driving back and as expected traffic = trash, lots of excessive brakes during the drive .
So basically, i gave up on the whole thing in less than 8 hours. Lots of improvements to be done here.
