I sometimes get so much anxiety meeting people and afraid of them getting mad at me. It's come down to games in general, sometimes i'll get bored of playing a game or get sad not having anyone to share any cool moments with. How do I get over this and just play the game for what it is?

An aging, declining population is one that is set to disappear or get assimilated by more prolific ones as time goes by. This is what the far right tards got partially right with their “replacement” idea. This is already causing problems in western countries where indigenous people are feeling threatened by migrants from latin america, africa, the near and middle east and so on, but they brought this onto themselves.
Now a lot of anti natalists welcome this (depopulation that is, not migration) because they want the whole world to commit suicide essentially. This is repugnant imo, but makes a lot more sense than thinking that a country can thrive in any way with an abysmal birth rate.

Any system that is totally relent on endless growth, including a endlessly growing population, is doomed to destruction eventually.

10 year neet, 34. I had a job at a restaurant in 07, no references (the original bosses there don't even work there anymore). College dropout.


My boy tore his canine ACL (called CCL in dogs), a tendon that holds the knee in position laterally. Without it each bone grinds down onto cartilage until the cartilage is gone and the bone grinds, creating agonizing pain - surgery is not optional, it's necessary. I truly love my dog (technically my younger brother's), who is 8, still alert, fit, and energetic, and has at least 5 years left. I walk with him almost every day and have explored local and national parks with him during the past 6 years. I have already wept tears over the changes that are to come, and the abrupt change this caused in both of our lives, as he is housebound per vet's directive.

We're looking at 2,500 - 3,000 total cost, each knee. Worse, the odds of his other CCL tearing are 40%, so I want to prepare for that.


Any tips on dealing with the neet question when applying? Or what specific jobs, even wagecuck jobs, are easiest to get into? Thankfully I have a car (leftover from early 20s) drive anywhere so that's not an issue.

This isn't about me anymore. Willing to do shit labor as well since I'm somewhat healthy/fit (I don't have massive stamina to do serious hardcore shit though) so if you have any suggestions on that I'd appreciate it. I can quit once I have enough. I would prefer max full time if possible to just grind and get this money

Your old experience would be worthless at this point anyway so there's no loss there.

Temp agencies will hire anyone with enthusiasm because they are getting a portion of your paycheck. If you actually show up and manage to perform a job with some sort of success you're already in the top 20th percentile of people they'll be sending there.

I'd really suggest lying about your experience to smooth out the process. Normals have no sympathy for our kind and walking in there as a 34 year old man and saying "yeah well I've kind of spent the last 15 years of my life playing on the internet" is going to flip on so many red flags for them you'll be lucky if they don't tell you to leave immediately. Just say you worked at Toys R Us or something and once it closed down you traveled or lived on a commune or god knows what. The lie doesn't matter so long as you give them something to believe in.

 No.231820

I get that you love your dog wiz, but spending 3 grand on each knee for an animal that will likely live only 5 more years just seems like a poor decision. Then again, if that dog makes you that happy, then the money is well spent, just make sure the happiness you get from the dog outweighs the displeasure you get from wage slaving.

Respect for doing this, I've got a dog myself and know I'd do the same.
Perhaps consider flipping, if you've got a car and nearby garage sales or storage unit sales you can buy stuff and sell it online or at a yardsale which is what I do with minor success.

So, you want to be a teacher? How hard can it be? Just what into a classroom and teach those people the lesson. Pretty much the only thing you have to worry about is whether you understand the subject, but hey the “student has become the teacher” is always bullshit you can use right? After all you went through the entire education system. You didn’t fail highschool, you didn’t fail college, and hell you even went after your masters and PhD. How can anyone doubt your credentials now?

As soon as you walk into a classroom, you learn that teaching them is not your job. To the students, your job is to give them all A+ and not waste their time. This ranges from just giving them an A+, to putting on a clown noise and being as entertaining as possible. This is especially true for students who are paying you to teach. Back in the day teachers only cared because the state payed them, or really rich people paid them enough so they had enough fuck-you money to tell the bad rich students to fuck off. If you were really poor, you were fucking thankful and respectful if a teacher took time out of their life to teach you.

Now adays schools have been so awashed in money that the market collapses of the early 21st century and decline of the middle class are beginning to descend on them. This ranges from people not having the money to pay for tuition, to people not rich enough to live in a high-end neighborhood where teachers can be paid fuck-you money, to literal birth rates declining because the cost of children are so astronomical that either you pay for them or the state takes them away from you and charges you as a criminal. Will all the shit children endure you’d think they’d be grateful for at least their existence that you gave them. And if you are not reproductively active have fun taking care of someone else’s batshit insane spawn who did not have the foresight or restraint to enact birth control.

Now why are teachers these days being given such a bad rap? Why are teachers being branded as lazy or inept by the media, politicians, and their parents?

In life, you have plenty of people in authority over you. You have a president, the military, the police, the judge, your doctor, your lawyer, the local county representative you didn’t elect, plenty of people. As a teacher though, you are at the fucking bottom of this authority tower. Here you are given the least power and least respect over the authority you wieldPost too long.

teaching would be a bad job for a wizard

 No.231619

Yeah, the job of teacher has been gutted to the core.

I took a state job placement test and teacher was one of many jobs I qualified for, and was interested in giving it a go. but dear god, the bull shit on the back end made doing filing federal income taxes look easy. I ended up instead taking a job, very briefly, as a school janitor. And while in that position learned most of the actual teachers were uncaring ass holes, some of whom no sane parent would want around their children.

Further, during this time my aunt from another state, who is a public school teacher and was not yet aware I had forsaken the teaching route, calls and tells me about all the policy bull shit she has to abide by as a teacher. And yes, it is just as TC (Anonymage) described, give everyone a A+ and facilitate their class assignments, that was about the gist of it. And she's a high school teacher! And at that moment, February 2017, she had three illterate students in her 10th grade class, all being grade promoted on athletic merits alone!

Have any wizards been abused by their teachers?

So yeah, continuing where I leftoff.

Further complication to the teaching profession, at least in my stat in the U.S.A., is that the state now requires teachers to:
1. Already have or actively be enrolled in a college working towards a bachelor's degree (completely skipping associates.
2. Take remedial "updating" college classes annually at your own expense to keep your teaching license. A minimal tuition cost of $3,000 plus considerable time required for these classes which are only given during the school year and thus serving as a detrimental distraction from the actual teaching job.
3. Agree to pursue and work on obtaining a doctorate degree within eight years of being hired on as a teacher. Again, this is crazy, this is on top of mandatory annual remedial classes and is likewise out of pocket expense.

It's clear to me that the reason why teachers complain that they aren;t paid enough isn't because they aren't paid enough, truly they're starting pay is well into "middle class" income. Rather the issue is that they don't feel like they make much because if they've been in the profession for eight years or less then they're easily being forced to spend close to 1/3rd of their pre-taxed income just to keep their jobs, and putting them under considerable undue stress.

Starting pay for a entry level teacher here was, as of spring 2017, $35,000 annually (plus benefits). And this was why I was seriously looking into teaching as a career, as the best I've personally ever made in private sector was about $21k just one year. But working briefly as a janitor in s local elementary school and seeing the dire state that the teaching staff was in, I believe I made the right call in not pursuing that as a career.

As previously said. Most of the teachers were ass holes not suited to be working with children. However, even the ones who were able to interact with the children in a fitting manner were clearly stressed at all times, as in already under duress upon arriving at the school in the early morning hours. And instead of working on teaching assignments and grading papers after classes were over for the day as is stereotypical, these teachers fell into just two categories, A. in a terrible hurry to leave for their college classes, or B. working on their own homework assignments at their desks after the their lasPost too long.

I probably don't need to tell you this but keeping your expensis down and saving most of the money you earn makes things MUCH easier.
As a single man with no obligations, as long as you don't blow through money on dumb shit it is very easy to improve your situation once you have a steady income source.

MY ENTIRE LIFE my mom fucks me on food. my entire fucking life, she has passive aggressively tortured me with food and feigns ignorance of my suffering.

as a child, i COULD NOT STAND mexican food. i would go hungry instead of eating mexican. i skipped dinner practically my entire childhood because SHE MADE IT ALMOST EVERY FUCKING DAY. by 16 i started getting so angry that i would shout and cry every time she would do this to me, and she still persisted.

by 20 my taste buds evolved and i began enjoying mexican. in fact it's one of my favorites now.
guess what happened once i started being excited for her cooking mexican? she stopped making it. she cooks it once every two years now that i enjoy it.

i really enjoy restaurant and fast food. so of course my mom scoured around and scouted out restaurants till she found one i dislike. a place called "China Garden" in mesa which serves exclusively frozen cafeteria style chink food that is seasoned to be way too sweet, and has stale rice.
and now she brings home food from there 9 times a week despite my stating that i hate it and refusing to eat the food she buys me every single time for a year.

if i say i enjoy a restaurant, she'll complain and pretend to hate it even though her food is fine and complain directly to the manager and never take me there again.

My parents just told me they will be leaving me their home when they die. I can't possibly express how relieved I am, I used to constantly worry about never owning my own home and eternally renting in a shared home with annoying roommates. It feels like there has been a weight lifted off my chest. Considering my own financial situation it was looking like I could very well have become homeless. I've n one else to tell this to which is why I'm posting it here but all the despair and worry I had about the future has been faded away mostly.

Anyway that said as a Wizard who I'm sure like yourself and others has struggled with my own mental illness demons believe it or not I am sorry old JP has had to go through his struggle.

I mean I still think the man is a hack and all but I don't hate him like you suspect I would and its because I find him to be a sincere hack as in not a conman but just a guy thats well…basically wrong on damn near everything that comes out of his mouth pertaining to advice he tries to give to young men.

Again though I don't think he's an Anita Sarkeesian or Zoe Quinn type who "knows better" and is simply making money off of the old "another sucker born every minute" meme.

So hopefully he gets through this rough patch in his life and for the good of all the youth retires from for lack of a better word "life coaching".

Yeah, what ever happened to just eating a balanced diet. People start on these extremely restrictive diets and within a year make 100 videos and write a book on how great they feel. Then they start feeling the effects of severe lack of specific nutrients and they almost die and are forced to drastically change diet again. It happens over and over again to so many people.
