Kingo, dude, at some point we all have our own problems to worry about. Also, your post made no sense.

As you said, elchevelle (and all of us here) have had our crazy shit happen, some of it was really horrible shit that I wouldn't wish on my worst enemies, and if you know where to look, it's all posted here in one way or another. The difference is that the focus was on getting insight and finding solutions rather than dwelling on the problems.

In my own recent situation, I was in a position where my family was about to lose 100% of income, our home, our health care, our ability to pay enormous student loans, and possibly all of our credit as a result when we were both simultaneously laid off.

As a reaction, Renee and I went on a more or less "job hunt rampage", sending nearly a dozen long and involved application packets all over the continent (multiple states and countries) every day.

For more than 4 months, we got an equally huge amount of rejection letters, every day. We studied for, took, and passed test after test to become more qualified, and yet still everyone seemed to just hire people they knew instead of us. Hundreds of apps, hundreds of failures, hundreds of dollars down the drain on postage alone. Many long road trips and cheap motel stays for interviews all turned out to be fail after fail after fail after fail after fail.

Finally, after a third of a year of this shit, someone hired Renee, and just today, someone hired me in a neighboring school district for the same job.

I type all this not to go on some ego trip, but it just goes to show that when shit hits the fan, there's always a way that some hard work can get you out of it if you can find an internal bulldozer to push yourself to do it.

Don't forget to live before you die.

It's about damn time; thanks, and it'll be a Guinness 250th Anniversary Stout that I found in a grocery store in Sioux Falls, SD on the way back from the interview. I might post about it later on the "when the juices flow" thread in the recycle bin.

Dude, if you were a retarded self-absorbed woe-is-me female, you'd be copping just the same amount of shit as you're copping now, and rightfully so.

Just STFU, buddy. Think up a new angle, you've run this one into the ground.

i know i'm the sensitive fool around here, but it just gotta be said:

how can he get laid? he pretty much seems to walk on his balls, i mean seriously, masturbation is off limits obviously, but damn!

you know what really got me in this vid? he performed for schoolgirls, those kids are still going through puberty, they shed a tear or two, next day.... back to being the dumbasses they are (ok, dumbasses is too strong, uneducated maybe?)

nonetheless, this really is inpiring, thanks relik, if i were to be an amputee of that degree.... i'd probably ask someone to kill me (and dont do the "it can be arranged" thing, gah... whoever will write this is a sadistic bastard)

It feels good to work and accomplish something. I too had to reread just to remember. What sort of employment do you have?

i'm not going to unfold my whole murky history because its too boring and not pretty, i'll just tell that i tried to "date" in my highschool and late elementary days (if you can call it that), and it always ended worse than it started or the same, i've had 1 girl that was at the same preschool and elementary as me, same class too, she liked me, i loved her... i even visited her house a couple of times (mostly because my dad told me to get homework from her when i came with an empty notebook, but my dad is another story )

also i've had some days where i would try to be a gentleman to the girls in my class, you know... small gestures, and they interperted it as like i'm hitting on them, i would pass notes to a male friend of mine back and forth, and then one of the girls snatched up one of the notes and kept it to read it later, she even let me reach down her front pocket to take it, the note contained some embarassing statements i didn't want a girl to read, so you realise how i've acted.

the same week, the most developed and down to earth girl in my class came to me and staightforwardly asked me to be her friend, i said sure (when a girl asks YOU, when youre not the best looking in the class, you dont say no ) next day she "mysteriously" became ill, the day after that she came back, you can guess what happened then.

highschool was weirder than that, because i've came with alot of "load" from my elementary days, i've had 1 weird outcasted girl to flirt with, ofcourse it ended nowhere and her missing (i think the school blamed me for that, but she looked over developed and slutty but incredibly empty, so i'm sure she ran away and got raped or killed or both)

every girl i contact or come in contact with me, spells bad news for me or her, so you probably know now why i find comfort alone at home. even male friends of mine.. each ended kinda badly (no deaths or something, just immatureness of either part or no basis to the friendship)

the problem is that i'm cute, funny, friendly, social, smart, understanding... you know.. the goody 2 shoes you used to beat up at highschool for being naive and cute, girls came onto me, school mates stood under my house to call me to go out with them, each time i ran away, i've tried going out with them, but i felt i was dragging along with no common things, so yet again i secluded myself. and those are not even the highlights of the tip of the iceberg of my life

would you believe me if i said the only people i contact right now are you guys? i know i said that i exaggerate and you shouldn't take me seriously, but i'm quite serious, depression still kicks me from time to time, i try to even it up by watching something funny on youtube or whacking off to porn just to make me feel better, not only for orgasm. and it goes like this for days now, its like "winamp > youtube > winamp > food > deviantart > porn > winamp > toilet > youtube > porn > playstation > photoshop project > porn > winamp"

i dont know what to do, i really feel like theres no purpose for my life, add my non employment factor and trying to learn driving with no will to do the theory side" my mom and me are in a wreck right now, still stable, but shaky, my neck problems dont make it any easier, i dont wanna go to the hospital because i dont wanna be like "ok, you're gonna need head surgery"... imagine calling my mom from the hospital in this situation.

i dont know, i feel like my life is a big void right now, i dont know how much time will it take for it to get any worse
Here! Sound Advice

Well, that's still good important work, more important to me than many would believe. More details on that later. Sometimes "boring" can be translated to "low pressure", "low stress", and "relaxing". It's all a matter of perspective. I have a family member that works night shift at a hotel. He gets to relax most of the time he's at work, even if it is a bit boring.

Yeah... I've done gigs like that... it does suck... Inventories especially suck. Reminds me of losing your keys over and over and over every 90 days for a three day period.

Plus walking up to 40 miles a day on concrete didn't do me any good....

You paint on a smiley face and keep going. They call that character.

It gets hard and sometimes it gets impossible. As far as women go.... some will... some won't.... next.. If you run into one whose life's mission isn't to piss you off, she's probably a keeper.

Those are very hard to find, very, very hard. I had to search through seemingly endless trash before eventually finding my treasure.

Work to me has been good or bad not so much based on what the job description is, but more on who's there with you. If you work with good people, even shoveling shit out of horse stalls or bailing hay in 98 degree weather or picking strawberries on your hands and knees for 11 hours is quite fun. If you work with bad people, even the best jobs suck. I've had a lot of different types of jobs, and really, it's the people that make the difference more than the work itself, for me at least.

I know a few guys who dealt with Taming of the Shrew, but women have been systematically trained to treat us as the enemy. If it rains it must be a mans fault.

My mom was a serious feminist back in the 1950's thru 70's, but my ex-wife changed her mind. Her mom 2. Shit... I had 2 -70's bra burners on my side and couldn't win.
