>finished highschool
>got a apprenticeship for some job in case I don't get accepted to a college
>got accepted to one
>job starts 1. August, semester starts in october
>so I can go to that job for one month and get paid for that
>it's like a secretary job so it's filled with like 90% girls my age
>job is in other town and even if they fire me they have to pay me the month so I have lots of possibilities
>want to bang one of these girls

Any tips? I would be willing to try anything as I don't care what people there think about me at all.

How far away is the town, and how much are you expected to make?
If you can make double what you'd spend in gas commuting, then it'd be worth it.

Otherwise, it'd be too cost-effective to do.

I would pay 60 euros on a month bus ticket and earn 850 euros for that month, it's not about the money I just wanna get laid and I think that's a good opportunity. Any tips?
User avatar #148019 to #148014 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx (08/02/2014) [-]
Balance it out. See if they are willing to be flexible for when you start going to college.
But I say go for it. You'll make money. You'll need that money.

As for getting laid, that's all up to you, man.
#148032 to #148019 - Womens Study Major (08/02/2014) [-]
There is no balancing out, it's a fulltime job which is, by the way, 200km away from the town my college is in. There is absolutely no way to do both and that was also never intended. I know what I am about to do, I got a solid, good working plan and I can pay for college without a job too. This whole post was just asking for advice on how to get laid, basically.

> that's all up to you
No shit sherlock.
Well whatever I just thought maybe someone got anything that could help, doesn't seem like it. Thanks for trying anyways.

mother acts like a fucking child and thinks she's right regardless of the situation when she's clearly wrong. She can't see two sides of a story, EVER.  I never go to her for advice, and she constantly ruins everyone's day with some sort of bitching about super trivial things.  She's a complete hypocrite, and I don't know how to just ignore this.  I've been beaten down emotionally many times now, and it still really bothers me that she can't just be rational and see that she's wrong. She has never in her life apologized to me for situations where she has been so wrong I don't even know where to begin...  I'm usually pretty good at ignoring things but damnit, this one is hard to do...

I know exactly where you're coming from.   
You can either fight back and scream and curse at her, or find some middle ground.   
   
You don't have to listen to what she says, but you don't have to ignore her either.   
Find a way to distance yourself a bit. It's all you can really do. Give yourself more control, and her less of it.   
If you're 18+, things should be fairly easy. Anytime she tries to argue with you about what you're doing, tell her you're an adult and just walk away.   
   
My mother is the exact same way. I used to scream and curse at her. She took it. It felt great, but I was doing no favors in keeping the family together.   
In the end, even though it sucks to say it, family needs to stay together on some form of middle ground. You don't have to agree with each other, nor do you have to argue.

I'm having a lack of motivation problem, I've been trying to start writing (like books and shit) but whenever I do I hit a brick wall. It's not lack of ideas, for the last few months I've made notes, detailed notes, plot summaries character descriptions etc etc, I don't lack any notes as I've noted the fuck out of my ideas. It's just that whenever I do try to sit down and write I just can't, I lose interest and just do nothing (mainly come on FJ). I don't know what to do, I just can't seem to get motivated.
User avatar #147931 to #147928 - thatnigger (08/02/2014) [-]
You think if you got someone to read a bit of it or gave out a few ideas of where the story is going to someone and they enjoyed listen to what you're doing, it'll motivate you? I think if the story you're making is something you want others to read in the future, having someone by your side, reading it and hopefully enjoying it'll give you a lot of motivation. Sure you might be shy about sharing it just yet, you might want to share it to someone you know online maybe or something, but I think that's a good step in the right direction, ya know?
User avatar #147934 to #147931 - nutsfromahippie (08/02/2014) [-]
Yeah true, but I feel pretty good about my own ideas it's just I find that I am unable to adequately put it into words, which then makes me pretty pissed and depressed (as what use is an aspiring writer if he can't write?). I think you're right, I may just have to share my ideas and see the reception.

does anyone have any tips for like… depression? Like, not just ordinary sadness, but like: Sadness to the point where you’re hurting physically, like you FEEL like you’re literately sick. Just wondering if anyone had any advice besides like a therapist or something.

This is more of a concern for my health, not really socializing
#148141 to #147911 - Womens Study Major (08/03/2014) [-]
I've been feeling the same way lately. It's like a dark. heavy feeling hanging over you. I'd give anything not to feel like that every day. It's awful. If you'd like someone to talk to, I'd be up to.

I've read exercise is good because it releases endorphins in your brain. Problem is with depression it kind of makes you want to do nothing, but I think it's worth a try.

I take supplements for the same thing; to get back to 'normal' I started with:
SAM-e 400 mg daily
Vitamin D 1000 IU daily
Saint John's Wort (forgot the dosage)
Omega 3 Fish Oil tablets (forgot the dosage)
Standard Daily Vitamin
After a month or two of that, I dropped the Saint John's and Omega 3. The Vitamin D is also far more than most people would need since my body somehow has trouble processing Vitamin D (doctor said my levels were about what he'd expect if I'd been held in a basement with no sunlight for several years) so you may be able to get away with just the standard daily vitamin. Becare with Saint John's Wort as its been shown to reduce the effectiveness of other supplements and medications and shouldn't be used with birth control or life sustaining medications.

Well, what happened to me was I attempted. Didn't work and I felt... different. Still depressed, but felt I knew what I needed to change. I don't suggest you do this, but I do suggest you try to think of what is going on and what you can do to help yourself.

#147944 to #147895 - confusedasian (08/02/2014) [-]
Hair color doesn't matter much to me. And I do think blondes stand out. The color just pops out more as oppose to black or brunette, so it just naturally does.
User avatar #147930 to #147895 - satoshileex (08/02/2014) [-]
I personally prefer redheads, but my gf is a blonde so its really whatever. Most guys don't really care and the few that do are more concerned about length not color, at least that's what i've heard.

I want to go ginger but my problem is that if I don't like it then going back to blonde is a lot of hassle. Pic related is the colour I'm thinking about. I'm quite pale, with a few facial freckles and greenish eyes so I would have thought it would look right but I'm just not sure.
User avatar #147925 to #147923 - thatnigger (08/02/2014) [-]
I think freckles go well with red hair actually, a good amount of people find it cute.

My eyebrows are light brown though so I don't know how that would look. I need to learn how to use photoshop so I can edit one of my photos and finally make a decision haha.
User avatar #147929 to #147927 - thatnigger (08/02/2014) [-]
Honestly, rarely do people look at eyebrows unless you point them out. Say someone coloured their hair pink or blue, I think it would look weird to have eyebrows of the same colour, ya know? I think light brown with red hair'd be alright though, if not you can always colour them darker or even just draw them on like some people do. :/
Good luck, hope you make a decision you're happy with.
#147932 to #147929 - Womens Study Major (08/02/2014) [-]
I dyed my eyebrows darker years back when I had black hair and I looked like a vampire so I'll probably just keep my natural ones haha. I think as long as I stick to lighter ginger my eyebrows won't be an issue, I mean I'm blonde now and my eyebrows look normal so I would have though it would work with ginger too. Thanks, I hope so too!
User avatar #147933 to #147932 - thatnigger (08/02/2014) [-]

I'm blonde at the moment but naturally I'm really light brown. I was thinking of going like Emma Stone ginger but I don't know whether I'm going to regret it. I notice other women more if they're blonde and I guess it's similar to what guys notice too.

Depends where you live. Here in germany (at least in my shitty small town) there are lots of brunettes cause there are a lot of turks so blonde girls do stand out, but in sweden for example almost every girl is blonde so brunettes are standing out there. Just go for the hair colour you want to have, I can't tell you what looks better in my opinion without a picture but since you're anonymous anyways that's not gonna happen so, just do what you think is best for you.

I live in England but I'm moving to America soon although they're pretty similar countries for hair colour I think. I've always liked ginger and it doesn't ruin your hair like colouring it blonde does but if I hate it going back blonde would be a lot of work.

There's a quarry somewhere near my town.
When they start blasting, it sounds like, and feels like, a plane is crashing in my street.
It happens very rarely, but when it does, it's freaking scary.

If it were real explosions, you would feel it.

Where do you live?
It really depends on where you live. For instance, being in the country and hearing distance gunshots is kind of normal. You could have Hickock45 as a neighbor. You never know.

I live out on the country side, and have my own backyard range, like half the other people around here. I just realized that I have become so numb to hearing gun shots. Yet when some people visit here and here shooting they get noticeably nervous and ask a bunch of questions about it.

I guess not completely numb cause whenever I am elsewhere I pay close attention to where and how many sounds I here that sound like gun fire, since I don't know the area... I just never make a big deal about it, only keep my attention on it.

Probably nothing big. I live in a decent neighbourhood and half the time it's firecrackers, or some dumb kid fucking around with a pellet gun. Even if it sounds like gunshots, unless you hear sirens or screams, you're fine.

so i got a job at walgreens today and im really worried ill mess up any advice?
User avatar #147884 to #147877 - thegamerslife (08/02/2014) [-]
be better then the rest, and don't cut corners. I can't fucking stand employees who just point you in a general direction after having to be "bothered" by you to help them at all. walgreens and walmart are the worst in my experience. hope you're better and set a better example, cause it's a dying breed.

What do you do when you value someone and care about their friendship, but it turns out they don't fell the same way (as in: they don't give two shits about you)? The answer that I imagine I would give people to this question is "They don't care about you, so you shouldn't care about them. If a friend doesn't treat you like a friend, then they aren't worth your time." The problem I have with going with that is that I want them to be worth my time. There was a time in my life when I could just turn my emotion off and stop caring about people, but I can't any more.
User avatar #148075 to #147869 - lobselvith (08/03/2014) [-]
Honestly, the best thing to do is to move on. Why waste time on a one-sided friendship? If you're nothing more than a second choice to them and you know it, remove yourself from their lives. Drop all contact.

Distract yourself with other things. Play a game, read a book, ect, it'll help keep you from thinking about how your former "friends" don't care about you.
#147875 to #147869 - theotherwhiteguy (08/02/2014) [-]
Its happened too many times in my own life that I fell for a girl only to find out that they liked someone else. You can try to cling to the hope that that persons relationship won't work out. But honestly that wont happen as soon as you would hope and trying to wait will only hurt you more. It sounds harsh and it is. Your going to have to find someone else even if its solely for distraction sake.

So I've been wanting to get into game journalism for a while now, and I figured that I'd buy my own domain name and website, etc, and I was just wondering what a good first post would be. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
User avatar #147897 to #147866 - rui (08/02/2014) [-]
The first thing you're going to have to do is ADVERTISE. You need to make sure that your website gets out there. Check these out: www.facebook.com/advertising?campaign_id=197860797614&placement=broad&creative=31842920172&keyword=ad+on+facebook&extra_1=3ac4039f-e471-1f29-3b0f-000013e4449f

The other thing is that you need to start on a LIST. Lists will generally attract people which is why it would be good to start with lists.

Think about the word LAUNCH. Nobody likes an empty website. Before starting everything up, you need to have at least 30 pages ready. Don't just start the website with one post and then open the door for visitors to leave. Give them proof that you know what you're doing and that you are active.

LINK EVERYTHING UP. Link all your pages together! Have a section of every page show the most visited pages or simply new pages that you think people are going to like! Link everything up so people stay hooked up and come back for more! Look at this: www.buzzfeed.com/ Look how everything is linked up!

Have a TEAM. This isn't a tip. This is absolutely necessary. You need to have a team because with a team you'll be able to kcikstart a YouTube channel which will help you a lot, not to mention keeping the website active.

Make the website EYE-CATCHING. Do you really think a green and purple scheme is attracting? Well uhh.. That doesn't matter. You have to make sure the website is pretty. Use lots of white!

hey guys, computer problem here;   
   
so my mouse keeps lagging. i mean it randomly goes off for a few seconds, then comes back on. let me explain, I'll be playing a random game, and I'll hear that sound when you plug in a USB in the slot or pull it out. it makes the sound when you pull out the USB from the slot and then my mouse doesn't work at all for at least 10 seconds. then ill hear that USB sound again and SOMETIMES, ONLY SOMETIMES, my mouse starts working again. i have to check if its working again, if not then i have to wait another good 30 seconds or so. (the more CPU usage, the more chances for it going off, don't know why.)    
   
Sounds painful? because it fucking is, i almost broke my mouse because of the rage while playing games. it mostly happens in games, usually when I'm not playing a game, there's a 10% chance it happens. while playing games, its a 70% chance it will happen.   
   
Did you google it? yes i did, people told me to go there and here and i followed every single instruction to the point and tried fixing it, and what happened? nothing.

Tried updating USB drivers?
Is it a wireless mouse?
User avatar #147886 to #147876 - ilikethisusername (08/02/2014) [-]
its not wireless, and how do you mean updating USB drivers? i think i already did that. i googled it up and did something similar like that like 2 months ago. i've been suffering from this problem for 2 months now, so i don't remember the solutions i tried.

btw, thanks man. not many people help out on advice board, but there are like 2 or 3 people like you always on this board.

i hope you're still there to help.

its happening less often now, very less often. i updated all the files as the software told me to do so. i just can't get rid off it completely. its happening like once or twice every day. before it was like at least 10+ times daily.

Not so much now... But I'll try when I can.

Anyhow, I hope the obvious is out of the way: Have you tried restarting the computer?

Also, flashing your Bios may help here.
User avatar #148256 to #148253 - ilikethisusername (08/04/2014) [-]
restarted many times before, and scratch that. its happening more now.

and flash my bios? im sorry but im new to that
User avatar #148257 to #148256 - xXThatxOnexGuyXx (08/04/2014) [-]
Flashing BIOS would probably help a bit more here.
It's essentially the "operating system" of the motherboard. (Used for configuring everything about it, and everything connected.)

Flashing it will update the BIOS version, which normally comes with a lot of patches for problems like yours.

However, flashing BIOS is kind of scary. You run it, it'll do it's thing, it may stall your computer, it may crash your computer, but it's worth it.
Find the manufacturer, the exact model of your computer/ motherboard (if it's pre-build, look for the computer model, and not the motherboard.) , then on the support page there will be a download sections. Look for anything related to BIOS, download it, install it, run it, and hopefully it should fix that.

nim is right. There's an actual pill called Plan B that can help. CAN is the keyword. You should be able to pick it up at, I don't know, Walgreens/CVS or Target.

Call it The Great War instead of WWI. Makes it slightly more dramatic. Mostly, I think it sounds better.
