I've been trying to get through her thick skull of how ridiculous that notion is but her stubbornness has built a wall. She has a poor relationship with her dad and her mother doesn't seem too invested in this as she has told me before. Not sure what do.
There really isn't much you can do. Bulimia/anorexia is a severe psychological disease. These people convince themselves that they're fat to the point of being walking skeletons. They look in the mirror and see themselves as gross.

It needs to hit them when they're life is falling apart and their body starts dying from the lack of food. That's usually when they snap out of it.

I'd suggest looking into a therapist or someone in that field. No guarantees, but from personal experience (not with eating disorders, but with therapists), they really can be effective.

She's actually detailing me a lot about herself as of late and she has some serious family issues. This runs rather deep.

Yeah, that'll do it. Several family issues + American marketing + teenage mind = eating disorder.

I didn't think it was so bad. I thought it would have been better off instead of showing us the entire crash scene at the beginning of the movie, to break it off into separate pieces. For instance, show the scenes in the **** (hahah starred out!) pit when he goes to visit the co-pilot in the hospital. Show the scenes with the stewardess when he sees her at the memorial service, etc... etc...

Thought John Goodman was hilarious

Sometimes I get nauseous on days I drink coffee, but it's never made me throw up. You getting the flu?

I applied for two jobs today (which makes 4 this week), and spoke to a member of the CT Whale sales staff (who unfortunately informed me they probably won't be hiring until the summer )

I can't believe 8 months after graduating I still can't find full-time work. What a ****ing joke. The Rangers can't ****ing win a game, and I'm still not over my ex.

I need to get out of this rut, big time!

Fine.

You are secretary of bull****.

I need things to entertain me daily, as I have no work obligations. Your job is to find things that entertain me. Keep in mind, I am a redditor, so I know everything before you

What kind of work are you looking for? Myself, looking for marketing positions mostly. I'd only be open to sales if it's in sports so I'm looking there as well.

Been a real tough go though, as most "entry-level" jobs require a few years of experience. And my only internship experience is what I'm currently doing, being an intern for Mitch Beck (who runs Howlings.net, if the name is familiar to you).

My problem is I'm still being too picky, but I have been less picky recently. One of these days though I'm just going to have to say **** it, and go for like insurance sales or something (I have connections in that realm).

Nothing is what I imagined it would be. Got to remember that I'm still young (22, going on 23), and I'm not the only one out there struggling. And I have awesome parents who let me live in their house rent free. It could be worse.

Uncertainty is what lies at the heart of my problems. I've made a conscious decision to avoid college for a multitude of reasons. I'd rather not have a massive amount of debt in four years. I really don't learn well in a classroom environment and I'm not sure how well I would do.

Back in June or so I landed a minimum wage job at a local Pizza Hut franchise. Kitchen staff. Lowest of the low, if you will--no tips like a driver or server, just $7.25 an hour. I didn't mind because I assumed I'd only be there through my senior year in high school. Turnover has been high but I'm probably the only part time employee in the kitchen that hasn't either resigned, been laid off, or had their hours significantly cut. I started off at ~20 hours a week, I'm at ~30+ right now along with a 'promotion' to delivery driver, which probably nets me an extra $300 a month in tips. Combined with 30 hours of school a week and I keep myself busy.

However, the franchise owner thinks extremely highly of me and informed me that should I not leave the area after graduation, he'd like to promote me to shift manager and ultimately to general manager (probably $13-14/hr 50-55 hrs/week if I'm running the whole restaurant). We've also had serious discussions regarding opening future franchises together as business partners with me holding an equity stake, which probably nets me another $30-40k a year per franchise on top of my management salary.

Working for myself is a really nice prospect, but I also recognize that putting all my eggs in one basket could potentially be a train wreck.

HAHAHA That video is absolutely horrifying



Sounds like you've got a pretty good thing going with Pizza Hut, at least. College isn't for everyone, looking back, it probably wasn't for me either... Or I should have made more of my time there instead of just wasting it. My major problem these days is regret, and I'm full of lots of them.

Thing is as you've said you know if this Pizza Hut thing doesn't work out you're kind of SOL for a little bit. Smart thing is though that at least you know that, and can begin to prepare now just in case. How you'd go about starting though? Well, beats the **** out of me.

Speaking of Pizza Hut, that $10 dinner box is no joke. I've literally had that as my dinner for an entire week. On dat dere poverty status.

I've already started the process of investing in precious metals. It's more of a long-term investment than a short-term gain, which is what I want. $100 of every paycheck goes to investments. We're paid bi-weekly, so...$2600 by the end of this year in gold/silver. With the latest round of QE I don't think it's a bad bet.

It's an incredible amount of food for the price. I can't even finish half of it by myself. Meanwhile, I can spend over $20 on sushi and still be hungry.

I'm gonna have to disagree with you here. Precious metals, outside of maybe copper, really have no utility. They also don't pay any dividends and have ridiculous volatility. As a diversification tool it's fine, but I wouldn't dare put all my eggs in that basket.

Never heard of either of those. I went to Sonic for the first time a few days ago. I don't know why it took me so long to do so. Amazing.
