  2. Finally put in my two weeks at my shitty job!! I am SO excited. And I'm about a month out from finishing school!!!!!

      Yay! I'm sure that feels soooo good!!

  3. I'm almost 1000 hours through cosmetology school! I have 500 more to go but this is a really big accomplishment for me. I had to drop out for five months and I also struggle with acute depression so I am very proud of myself right now.

      I'll also be entering a national competition in the upcoming months and am VERY excited about that!

      Congratulations hon! 43 years here. You will never be without a job! (hug)

  4. Don't wanna make a thread on it because it's not as religion oriented as usual but my dad still is disgusted with me and I'm still not allowed home. My mom told me that in a phone call and also basically told me they would rather ignore me but are doing the "right thing" and trying to keep a relationship with me. So uh... it's a great day to be gay?

      @ConsiderTheSource, thank you. Honestly hearing from so many parents on here who are supportive really give me hope. The fact that you did your utmost to understand your daughter and help her really speaks volumes. I still love my parents it's just very hard to hear them talk about me. I hope someday they make the progress you have.

      You can always post this in Totally Off Topic, although, considering the usual source of anti-LGBTQ bigotry, this might fit under Ex-Christian Life or Sex & Christianity.

      @Cousin Ricky I made a more extensive post in Ex-Christian life if you feel like reading it. ToT is uh. A little rough for something that is so touchy for me.

  5. If god is so loving why did he give me a kidney infection??? Seems pretty unloving to me! (sarcasm)

    1. sdelsolray

      sdelsolray

      The god is a fiction.  Your kidney infection was caused by something else.

      1. "It's a test"

      2. "The devil has an inroad due to sin in your life"

      3. "He has a better plan for you"

      4. "Just trust the love you've already felt"

      5. "Cast away your medicine and put your trust in the Lord!"

      6. "You need to bind the devil and the spirit of infection, anoint your home with olive oil prayed over by the pastor"

      7. "Proclaim yourself healed and well. Speak in faith! Proclaim your freedom in Christ!!!111!"

      Probably 1000 more excuses and non-cures from the believers.

      He is teaching you a lesson through pain. He's not going to give you any hints about what that lesson is, though.

  6. Taking an unwanted but necessary break from school :( but as a result I'll have more time to be around so I guess that's a good thing!

  7. I was counting books on a high shelf at work today and felt the stool I was standing on top of start to give way. Nothing like a near death experience to rejuvenate your prayer life!

  8. Who do I need to message so I can get access to the spirituality forum? I'd really like to participate in some of the discussions and ask some of my own questions but I can't figure out who mods each forum.

  9. Just said goodbye to one of my best friends in the whole world. I don't know when I'll see them again, but I hope it's soon.

  10. Been away trying to deal with school stuff. Good news is, I start on Monday! Bad news is that this starting month's costs are wiping me out because I was anticipating more aid. I'm taking art commissions, if any of you guys are interested in that sort of thing. I tried to make a thread but couldn't get the images small enough so just let me know if you're interested.

      I'm interested. PM me when you have time

       

  11. Tornado warning in my area, one took out a gas station near my friend's house about 30 minutes away. They're saying it's mostly passed now but it's still scary. Sure love being back in America.

      We had a couple of tornado warning this evening as well. Be safe.

  12. I am safe and sound in Canada! Update for those keeping up.

      I'm visiting a really good friend of mine who normally lives all the way in Australia but is studying abroad in Canada right now. I'll be here for about a week and then we're going to my home for Christmas.

      Ah excellent! Glad to hear it's going well :)

      Heads up. If you're a young male and enter the country alone with the purpose of visiting a friend, expect to be interrogated by border services. Happens to me every time...

      I'm used to that but I'm also trans and pre-transition so for all intents and purposes my passport and ids say I'm a girl. But thank you for the heads up.

      Have Fun up north now.

  14. Make that a 10 hr shift and then two 11 hr shifts. Gotta love working at a school bookstore.

  15. Just finished a 10 hour shift and I have an 11 hour one tomorrow, getting that money for the price of my soul and energy.

      In the USA, only billionaires and large corporations (collectively known as “job creators”) have rights. These rights are expected to trickle down onto the workers.

      Thurisaz, honestly it pays better than my old job which was a lot more stressful. And this is only because we're during "rush" season. It still sucks though, but I get overtime if I break 50 hours a week. It's compensated my knees just hate me for it.

  16. Did you guys know key lime pie ice cream exists and it is the best thing ever?

    1. Lilith666

      Lilith666

      I did not know that. I prefer chocolate, though. Does it taste like key lime?

    2. knightcore

      knightcore

      Yeah it really does. It's not quite as zesty as I'd like but it's still really good

  17. Christmas is so stressful but it's going to be worth it. I think this is the first time I've been excited for Christmas in three years.

  18. I am 100% over this cold. I don't remember what it's like to have clear sinuses.

    1. JenniferG

      Head colds suck! Use nasal spray and vaporizer. If you don't have a vaporizer dissolve Vicks in a cup of hot water and inhale through your nose. Hope you get better soon

      I've been popping sudafed for months now (the kind you have to sign for), just to keep the sinuses from swelling (how the nasties like to breed). And using Neilmed sinus rinse. So far so good.
