Personally, I'm comfortable buying anything within ~15 years if its in good shape. Even repairs aren't a big deal if they're still costing less per month than what you would be spending on payments for a new car.
The deadline was like a month ago and my stuff didn't get there the day of so they sent me an email saying I couldn't write. Then today I got an email with my details to pay for the exam, apparently my stuff was a day late and they sent it anyway but never bothered to tell me.
Samesies! Except I get paid slightly more and can't really spend it because of school.
Also, I don't even earn 1700 bucks a month. Yet I imagine I have as much or more disposable income as any of you. Nearly all of my income is disposable, as rent and board are provided by employer
Have/had a choice of schools for two different programs. Ones a two year, continuation (I guess), from my college to University to get my degree and then hopefully continue on which doesn't really offer any benefits careerwise aside from the degree and ability to continue on. The other is another year at college to become an advanced care paramedic which is a direct career advancement.
I decided on the degree a while ago when I wasn't accepted to the ACP program. Got accepted to ACP earlier this month and kind of jumped on and my parents were kinda pushing that way and happy of the choice. Had the time to think again and realised I want to do the degree and continue on hopefully to Med School. Variety of reasons but mainly coming down to that, and can tell my parents are disappointed, maybe not the right word, and think I should do the other.
I know I have to make my own choices but its hard to know my parents, while still supportive of my decision, think its the wrong choice. Guess its one of those growing up moments but it's still a hard one.

I work as an independent contractor in the real estate industry. I chose this career because I hated the idea of having a set schedule. I enjoy being able to travel anywhere I want, whenever I want. If you’re cool, maybe you can tag along. Additionally, after spending several years in charge of leading people in college, I realized I don’t enjoy giving orders outside the bedroom and I don’t like having a boss telling me what to do. In other words, I value my independence and freedom. I’m probably the most independent person you’ll ever meet—I’ve got my own place, my own car, and my own money. I enjoy being alone and I can’t remember the last time I felt lonely. So if you’re going to need my attention 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you should probably talk to someone else or adopt a puppy.
I might be coming off as a bit of a jerk, but I do have a very laid-back and carefree personality. Life’s too short to spend worrying so I don’t take it too seriously. It’s hard for anything to get under my skin because when I don’t like something, I change it. If I can’t change it, I embrace it. With that said, I’m pretty flexible with regards to who I’m dating. I don’t care if you’re independent like me, or if you’re a traditionally sweet and submissive type, or if you’re a modern feminist badass type. The bottom line is: if you’re fun to hang out with, we’ll get along. I’ve still got a lot of things I’d like to do before I die and I don’t have much patience for people with negative attitudes. If you’re unpleasant, chances are I won’t want to keep hanging out with you.
I have a love/hate relationship with online dating. On one hand, I like how I don’t have to spend all night out at a noisy bar to meet you; I can just meet you on here with my phone while I sit on the toilet in my pajamas at home. But on the other hand, it’s hard for me to convey my full personality and sense of humor through text. For that reason, I’d rather get to know you face-to-face over something simple and relaxing like coffee or drinks instead of just texting back and forth indefinitely. So if you just want to text all day, then you’re more than welcome to keep texting the other dudes on this site who will try to seduce you with unsolicited dick pics. Otherwise, let’s meet up and swap stories and laughs. Shoot me a message and we’ll see where it goes.
.....i like your fire cape
Read your post then immediately looked at your signature. Was not disappointed if slightly creeped out.
Oh god, I've been on a Stardew kick recently with ~40hrs since the start of September. Its just such a good game, like way too good for what it is.
I worked last weekend so this is my first day off in 12 days
I wanna min/max a new farm on stardew valley. At least for Spring year 1.
I guess " 'E'-'l'-'i'-'o'-'t' " is just kinda too bulky.I feel like if you're gonna go for a middle name, you should pick as weird of one as you can. Wikipedia says you're only allowed apostrophes and hyphens, so I would suggest going with "'E-l-i-o-t'"
I want to change my name for a few reasons... Largely because I'm named after my father and my father has been nothing in my life. Secondarily because I want to opt for a gender-neutral name.
I've settled on Erin Maus. Unsure about the middle name right now: thinking Eliot, after my favorite poet. "Erin Eliot Maus" sounds very nice, too.
...but it looks very confusing. It's been eating at me for a while but today I asked my brother and he's okay with it so I'm thinking of going ahead before the holidays. I won't tell my extended family ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
The nature of the first past the post voting system means that it's in your best interest to vote for one of the 2 major parties, and even a political system with many, relatively equally popular parties that adopts fptp will trend towards two relatively centrist parties. Unless America changes its voting system, we're unlikely to get more than two parties.
There are plenty of other options, no one votes for them lol
I think we can agree a huge part of the issue is partisan based. 2 parties simply aren't enough, especially when they seem to be in an arms race with each other as to who can come up with the bigger [wagon] every November.
Even the most successful third party (the Progressives) managed less than a decade of relevancy before we morphed back into a 2 party system.
Don't think it has too much to do with FPTP. Canada has FPTP, and eight different parties in Parliament... similar situation in AUS as well, for example. I don't agree that it's in anyone's best interest to vote for one of the major parties even if they disagree with them, that's exactly the attitude that leads to only two major parties. I think a much bigger issue is political ignorance than anything
I think a big difference here, on some level at least, is how they elect their president and senate/congress differently. In Canada and AUS, so far as I know, we elect our area representative and then the leader of whatever majority party (most seats) becomes the Prime Minister or the leader of our country for all intents. Versus basically two very distinct elections with one for area representation and one for leader happen in the states, which I think feeds back into more of a two party system.
