  • How to remove words on nail polish bottles?

    I have tried thinner, zippo lighter fluid, but both do not work. I wish for a fast way, as I have quite a number of them that I want to re-purpose as art work.

    I went for an interview and was interviewed by three people, the HR manager, accounting manager (interview was for an accounting job), + another interviewer. I was grilled with a lot of questions, and it seems to me that they are interested in my track record (schools I came from, the current co. I'm looking to leave - been there 3+ years). The interview was around 20minutes..and honestly I kind of BS'd a bit since I absolutely hate accounting..but I need the money, and I'm not lying about my qualifications, just the passion I have for accounting (I studied a totally different field from this, but have some certs in accounting, and exp). They told me they'd call me back for a 'second' interview, and one of them said, "we'll see if you get through the second round". They were nice and all, but me being an introvert..even the idea of going for an interview was already very chilling..and I'm about to throw in the towel....tbh entering a new office is terrifying..and on top of that, I do have some hearing impairment (which can't be helped any more as I already wear aids). I don't know what I want, but I do know that to continue accounting would probably kill me..but I really hate this current job, and this co. seems to 'sort of' want me, based on my track record, and I need the money. What should I do? Should I go for the 'second' interview? Did the first one go well, or are they really hesitant and need another sounding board, hence their so-called 'second' interview?

    I am a reclusive person with very keen need of privacy. My relatives are the type of people for whom “the more, the merrier” hence it always feels very stifling and stressful to be around them. Even my mother has that characteristic. My sibling is a little reclusive, but still enjoys the company of our cousins. I only enjoy the company of a select few, and in recent years, I only don’t mind the company of one (who is more reclusive like me, too), since the rest of the cousins always end up hanging out in cliques. So I only hang out with them one-on-one. So basically, I don’t really talk much to them (cousins and relatives), but I’m responsive. I know im not interesting to them at all. But I feel as if they’re disappointed in me. I do feel disappointed with them. Where were they when I had breakdowns (I’m seeing a counselor, and I’ve been to a psych, a therapist)? Where were they when my mum was struggling to help me and help herself? They’re my mum’s siblings, and I don’t see them helping her. They always act as if they care about us (acting chummy when they see us, or using terms of endearment: “dear, how are you? How’s your job? Oh. Think positive!”), but I feel that they are shunning us, by leaving us out of the loop of happenings. I really don’t care about that done to me, but they do that to my mum and sibling too. Which is not fair, and they’re feeling it, although they said they don’t. But I know what I see. How do I handle relatives like that? It’s hurting. I’m sick of that. And I have to mention one thing, since my grandfather died in 2009, I stopped going for those family gathering things, because tbh, I only went for him. And now, I’m going again for my mum. Only these people…I absolutely hate these things cos I don’t do social gatherings.

    I've been working in accounting for a few years, will be 3 years this end June. This is my second job, I'm 25 this year. My first job was related to what I studied, was there for a year plus, but it's a stagnant job given my qualifications, hence I decided to switch lines and take a diploma in accounting. It has been 4 years (took a year off to study for it, whilst looking for a job, and another 3 years in the job and part time studying), but I have failed papers one after another. I do not have the passion for this job, and these 3years has been a mental anguish. I struggle through all the daily tasks, and the monthly bank reconciliations. I am still suffering and am in my own hell, should I just tender first and give my mind a break for a few months? I am at a loss. If I stay I might lose my mind, and if I quit, I worry about what I can do next. I can't really pursue further studies because I am severely hearing impaired, and I am socially awkward so it isn't easy to ask for help from people around me too. PS: I'm from Singapore, but job economy is bad here too.

Seeing as my grimace frightens them off. I've been told I have a blank stare/expression as well.

    Every human has his or her own bad day. But I realise that in my treatment of my mum, I'm channelling her in her attitude. She is a single mother, but always yelling at me for every small thing, 24/7. She's the type of person who will yell at me for having my lights on for a short while to get stuff out of my room when my domestic helper is sleeping (we share the same room). It's just a 5-second light-on thing to find exactly where my item is. Whereas her screaming means the domestic helper will jolt out of her sleep. Small things like that..the animosity has built and I realise I'm channelling exactly that attitude back to her. It's okay for her to make a mistake but not me. So I resent her for that..no way I could talk to her about it, I tried, she just blames me for 'feeling that way, suck it up, learn to like it'. I tell her I'm terrified of something, she throws it at me. She is terrified of lizards. And when I give her an analogy : I hate this like you hate lizards, please stop. And she says I'm taking revenge. Is she mean or am I mean? Me, when she nags at me or opens her mouth to say something, I will just give an irritated answer. She irritates me no end. How do I stop this attitude when for eg, she bangs open my room door and starts a very rude tone which I return, and she says I'm but a meanie. Her banal nitpicking attitude has made me hate coming home, I no longer call it my home but a house. i don't like being with her. My brother sides her..as every son would do their mum. I feel that because of her, I don't feel worthy to be around other people, if my own mum can't love me, who will? She does not physically or intentionally abuse me, but all the emotional and mental abuse has made my mind very unstable. I have had many suicidal ideas and am seeing a counsellor without anybody's knowledge. I am not attention seeking, seeking for advice.

When I tell them I'm stressed, they say I'm a spoilt brat. When I tell them I seem to be developing some OCD, they say i''m just spiting them. My OCD involves washing my feet each and everytime I pass by the bathroom, because both of them have a tendency to spill things. Such as milk, gravy.. and the floor is a tad sticky. Not THAT bad, but I am extra sensitive to sensory stimulants.

    Hiya, What are some tips to be a better person? I am 24 female, and an extreme introvert. I do not like to participate in mundane chitter-chatter because to me it is extremely lame. Examples are, my office ladies (30++++ to 50s) will go gaga over a newly-bought item one of them flaunts : wow that bag is so cheap! Branded, eh? Louis Vuitton. How much did you pay? I am not ageist. Tbh, I am a loner and most of the time people who stick with me, I can't help feeling, is because they pity me being so alone. And also, usually talkative people like to latch on to me because I am a good listener. Like the oldest lady in my office who likes to lunch with me, the littlest cousin who everyone finds irritating (including me), the oldest guy in my previous job who would always come to me to chat/rant. I am not a person who cares about superficial image like nails, hair, clothes, fashion, bags. In fact I am really minimalist and it takes me extra effort to notice these things about girls. (and yes, I am a straight girl) How do I get more interested? I know I am self-centred (I don't preen in front of mirrors), and hence not interested in other people generally, but I want to change that because, I realise that I am getting less and less liked, everywhere. I have a caustic tongue. I'm trying to keep my comments to myself, but sometimes people do make me sarcastic to them often lol. I don't like to smile, it feels unnatural. I can smile at myself in mirrors but not to people. How do I turn things around, and reconnect with old friends and relatives (none of them like me now).
