    It is day three of suspension and no word of when returning back to work. They stated I was suspended until investigation was not pending anymore. One of my family members states it sounds more like that I am "suspended indefinitely", since they have not given me a date when to return. Says that I cannot trust the company or anyone working there. However, I feel thing's will clear up soon and be able to return. In regards to the issue someone stated that I was not safe to be at work. I agreed to a joke with a peer, while we were sitting in the back room. The person was there as well and made a phone call due to safety concerns. Four weeks later was called in by my manger, the director, and head of security to address the complaint and get my side of the story. All I could tell them because I don't remember much is with peers in the backroom joking and we were all joking. The only thing I could state was that maybe someone took something out of context and made the complaint. I assured them that I am doing fine and have no issues with my job. I love my job actually. Does put me a bit on edge. I someone who likes to work and needs to be moving. Anyways does it sound like something that be, "suspended indefinitely." Or just a suspension pending an investigation. I feel that I will be able to return to work, but after a family member stated the other suspension I am bit concerned.

I finally had time 12 hours after signing finance papers and putting down a $250 deposit. I found and contacted another dealer with the same car. It is 30,000 miles less, offered everything the previous dealer offered, and lowered the monthly payments $20 less. It is a much better deal. I don't know if I can back out of this or anyway can approach the salesman about this. Any advice be great.

Questions my outfits, I wear khakis, saying they are outdated and make me look fat. Says my prior relationship brought me to another level. Criticizes me returning back into religion and questions my motives. Dissapointed in my current relationship with an older women. Ask me to get back with her and get married. Criticizes descions I made in the past anf holds them against me. Then turns 180 very supportive of me. I have been honest about the current relationship im, but now I have to hide it.

    I am wasting my life I just turned a quarter of a century and graduated college with a degree in Justice and Law Administration. Wanted to go into policing, but have no interest anymore. Done a couple of odd jobs and used my degree assist me in getting a job at the local hospital. I make about $18 on average. Not sure what I want to do with my life. I am having trouble with my one time girlfriend and possibly ending it. Have zero friends’ just acquaintances I see time to time. Have no career goals in mind and want to return to college in hopes of finding what want to do with my life. I am living with my mom. I am paying rent, but it is to expense to move out without a career in place. Only thing consistent with my life unless I am injured is running and swimming. With a bit of jealousy my cousin who was unsure of his life and is a year older than me seems to be getting everything right. Graduated college a year ago, about to get engaged, working minimum wage, being active, living by the beach, working towards his goal as a teacher, and has his own apartment. I ask myself what went wrong with my life. Anyone ever experience something similar in their own life?

    I graduated college two years ago with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Law. I am currently a volunteer EMT B and work as a Psychiatric Technician at my local hospital. I was considering going back to school for Associates as a PTA and supplementing it with a Graduate Certificate in Nutrition Education. Goal would be down the road applied towards a Physical Therapist Doctor program. I was looking into feedback of PTA’s to PT’s and work as a PTA. Working in the mental health field work alongside OT’s more, but occasionally have involvement with PT’s. I have never heard of an Occupational Therapist Assistant until looking through for programs on PTAs. The interesting part is OTAs can bridge into an OT program if already have a Bachelor’s Degree. With observation of OT’s work in only the mental health field would say OT’s work on rebuilding life skills. OT’s create coping strategies and work on lost skills. Where working alongside physical therapist they address skills lost physically. Would that be correct? Appreciate the feedback going to look into both areas.

    Hi, 24 year old male. I have been with my girfriend for close to two years now. About close to a year I had the same feelings toward my girlfriend as I do. I did not open up and isolated myself from my girlfriend. She realized something was amiss found out from her best friend. That just sent ripples and my girlfriend was distraught. Believed I was the one, do you not think I am beautiful, and so forth. I do not want to say I felt pity, because she is an amazing person. However, just seeing her so distraught I could not do that to her. During that time I was dependent on my girlfriend and her family they would let me stay at their house in bad weather and when I finished long nights after work. Probably the best was open up a whole network of friends. Not saying I am not social just work, sports,school, and my volunteer service was and still my life. Just never spent free time outside of those networks. Feels great have connections of friends through my girlfriend. That is whee this story goes. The only feelings I have to my girlfriend and staying with her is for that network of friends and not being alone. I am not sure if it is a phase. I just do not feel we are meant to be. I am outdoors person: Hiking, running, kayaking, tubing, gardening. Going for my second degree so can work in natural resource field. She enjoys TV, movies, studying, history, and being in the library. Very studious person. I just feel no connection any more with her. I am lossed on what to do. Part of me feels there could be redemption in my feelings toward her. Part of wants to stay with her to keep those friends. Part of me wants to go because I cannot see where it is going. Normal feelings
