Am staying at home with my parents for the time being (recently became unemployed and the recession is making job hunting tough).
I just got an email the other day confirming that my thesis had been approved. I had defended my thesis last year and passed with some revisions required. Last month I resubmitted with revisions made, and since then I'd been waiting to hear back from the examiners.
Well, I did, and I passed. And... no-one really seems to care. My parents invited some friends and relatives over for a dinner, but everyone pretty much ignored me and no-one asked anything about my research, or even about what I planned to do next. It was just like it was all just a convenient excuse for a family reunion.
I thought for the longest time that this would never happen. I spent over half a decade and for most of that time I didn't seriously think that I would get here.
The people who attended didn't even seem to get what a PhD was, or that that was the degree I have attained. One of them seriously asked if I was going to continue studying, to which I had to explain that that's not possible since I now have the highest degree one can get.
I don't know where I am going with this, but the subreddit is about getting stuff off one's chest, right? So I guess that's what this rant is all about.
No one cares about anybody, especially if they aren’t trying to date them. I am not talking about someone knows the other person for few years & then he falls into depression. I am referring to if you meet a depressed or damaged person for the first time you will probably just judge him/her & leave. If you are cute/hot people actually try to know you only if it’s maybe because they want to get in a relationship/sex. Someone listens to you & is there for you.
Edit: I can't reply to you all sorry! "Just lose the weight, eat less calories, etc. "
There are so many factors that make this advice difficult to follow:
Mental health Medication Injury Becoming a parent Seasonal work Etc.
Wearing ill-fitting clothes only makes you feel worse in these tough situations. I'm not suggesting complacency, and being obese does have real medical impacts, I'm suggesting that we are kind to ourselves. Self love will lead to self investment.
Every single day we are getting away from being human, what we've learned in thousands of years..... we are getting more and more just materialistic beings........ i don't see a bright future here ....... well, not too optimistic
Per LoLalytics, Kaisa currently sits at:
-53.13% WR #1 on her role -S+ Tier -A whooping 44.36% pickrate (!) -21.32% banrate.
She has no losing matchups in botlane (Besides Seraphine and Swain who are niche picks)
Any midlaner/toplaner with these stats would've been hotfixed, but Kaisa has no nerfs on PBE, nor her items, nor anything about her and nobody seems to care really given she's an ADC.
The family moved to the unit above us 3 months ago and they had an autistic son. I don’t know how old he is, maybe 10. Since they moved, all we heard is constant stomping, jumping, screaming daily. The only time we get any peace and quiet is when they left for 2 hours and it’s business as usual.
We see how he “stims” (I’m sorry I don’t know if I said it right) on the parking lot, he jumps and flaps his arms while screaming and moaning. Imagine hearing him do it upstairs with the constant thudding and thumping at minimum 20 minutes at a time, at most 2 hours. Add his daily tantrums and it becomes torture.
We take our college classes online and we work from home so we cannot have excessive noise. The noises came to the point where we can’t study for our exams. We can’t take our exams in peace. We can’t watch TV or play video games and we are lucky if we even get 4 hours of sleep.
My boyfriend and us went upstairs to confront them about the noise. The woman at the door told us, that he’s autistic. I told the woman that I don’t care that he’s autistic, and that she and her husband made the conscious decision to bring their emotionally disturbed child on the the top floor apartment knowing full well how he behaves and it’s disturbing our peace and the neighbors as well and if she can’t control the kid’s behavior then she needs to move somewhere that it’s not disturbing us. She can to take her kid outside somewhere where he can let off some steam where it’s not disturbing people and how she handles it is her problem. I’m not going to sit here and revolve my life around her inconsiderate ass. The dad started screaming at me for what I said to her.
We then complained to the landlord about the months of noise we went through and he told us to call the cops and take it up with them. We called the cops, twice a week on them because it was hard to hear my customers on the phone over his tantrums. It was hard to sleep or be in peace that we pay rent for because of him. The neighbors complained as well, and the lady next door broke her lease and moved because of him. We banged on the ceiling every time when they failed to mitigate the bullshit for 30 minutes.
Two weeks later I got a final warning from my job that they can hear the kid screaming through my phone and customers complained about it.
I do feel bad at screaming at the lady when I acted in the moment in anger. I am sick of hearing it. My boyfriend said that I was being too aggressive with them and t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Currently with a gut-wrenching toothache, following cheap home remedies (such as chewing raw garlic and rinsing my mouth with salt water) cause I cannot afford a single visit to the dentist. It's humiliating, makes me feel powerless. Same goes for people that have to take out loans to have a root canal, or elders that spend years paying off their dentures.
We chew with our teeth. Our smile is a huge part of our self-esteem. Poor dental health issues such as gingivitis can lead to ALZHEIMER'S, as bacteria travels to the brain. You can stop being a functioning member of society and forget your loved ones just because your teeth did you dirty. Excuse me but that's fucking terrifying. I am terrified as we speak.
Healthy teeth can contribute to one's overall wellbeing, no chance to argue about it. I hate how only rich people can afford as many visits to the dental clinic as they wish.
My teeth are not a luxury. Don't charge me like they are.
Thank you everyone for the better home remedies! 🧡
I’m really feeling great about it, to others out there dealing with anxiety, stick to the work!
After 5 years, 2 kids, many jobs, many homes, and many breaks from school, I finally finished my associates degree in business administration from my community college and will start university next year. It’s always been a goal of mine to finish college since I am a first generation high school graduate and now a first generation college graduate :) nobody ever told me to go to college and when I say nobody I mean NOBODY. Not any teachers, relatives, friends, bosses, it’s just something you don’t really push on a poor kid to do since it’s obvious you have to work. I never got support from anyone any time I complained about school and how hard it was to balance everything. Either way I always pushed myself to continue and now that I hit this milestone, the reaction was underwhelming from everyone including my mom and husband but oh well I’m proud of me :) thanks for reading
EDIT: OMG I did not expect all this kindness! I got anxiety when I first made the post that I decided to log off and barely check it right now. You guys have me crying and smiling at the same time! Thank you to each and every person who commented and for all the awards. I’m honestly going to print this post and keep it as an inspiration to finish my bachelors. It’s been such a crazy year I think for all of us and to know that there is still so many kind souls out there, thank you so much. You don’t know how much your words mean to me. And for everyone that is in a similar situation, college is hard and I believe in every one of you! If I was able to do it I know you can do it too ❤️
Don't like it, stop playing, it's the only message they'll hear.
