  • Would martial arts help me build confidence? ?

    I’m a junior in college right now ( 20 year old , female ), and I also work part-time. In my education and work life , I often tend to lack in confidence when it comes to addressing issues or being confrontational. I also have a lack of confidence in my identity , and consistently feel uncertain about who I am as a person. Recently, I have developed an interest in martial arts as a way to build my confidence and self - esteem. I have looked into a few facilities near me, and many of them offer adult classes. Earlier in my life, I was a competitive gymnast, and during that time, I had substantially more self esteem and confidence than I currently have. I want to get back into sports , but I also want to try something new that will help me in other areas of life. Is martial arts the way to go about this ? If so, how do I determine which of the martial arts is the best fit for me ?

  • Advice for how to move out ? *serious answers only*?

    I am 20 years old and a junior in college . I recently got asked to be a third roommate with my friend and her girlfriend. They live about half an hour away from where I currently live with my family, and I go to a university and work part time in my hometown . However, my university also has a campus closer to their home that I’m comfortable transferring to, and I’m comfortable saving the extra gas money to keep working at my job in my hometown. I make $8.75/hr and I’m comfortable working about 30-35 hours per week. After receiving my paycheck, I have to pay some bills which amount to around $465. My rent with my friend would be $500/ month. I was wondering if anyone had any advice for budgeting , and things I should know before moving out ? Thanks 

  • How can I self-advocate for a new position? ?

    I’m currently a guest services specialist in a seafood restaurant. I fulfill front counter cashier, drive through , dining room /hostess, and janitorial roles . I have worked there in the same position for 2 years and 5 months. I know how to open and close the front end ( encompassing drive through , front counter, and dining room with janitorial duties included  ) and I know how to work full day and night shifts on the front end. Previously, I had asked my general manager to be trained as a cook and he agreed , but he has since seemed to have forgotten about this. When I brought it up a second time, it was passed off as a joke. I often assist in training new front end employees , as well as often cover shifts for others. I’ve called out of work once the whole time I’ve worked there , and it was for a death in the family. Working on the front end does make me anxious, but I’ve reigned that in through these past few years . However, I would still love to be taken seriously and trained as a cook in the kitchen. I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how I can self advocate and talk to my general manager about this again tomorrow morning. Thanks in advance!

  • How can I appear older ? ?

    I’m 20 years old , and I look more like I am between 12 and 13 years old. I know that this will likely be something I appreciate in my future , but at this point in my life it has been causing issues. Often, I experience conversations with people my age or even younger who will speak to me as if I were much younger than them. I’m often asked if I have an adult around when it comes to doing things such as shopping in a store or eating out by myself. I also often receive the kid’s menu and a paper cup with a lid when I eat out with family.  My size doesn’t help either , I’m 5 foot 1 and 97 pounds . I’ve tried wearing makeup, dressing more maturely , etc. , but because of my small size and stature, I only look like a child playing dress up in her parents clothes. I’m currently a junior psychology major at a university , and I need to be taken seriously in job interviews and internships, and especially in life , as I’m planning on moving out independently soon. If anyone has any advice on this, it’d be greatly appreciated. Please no sarcastic or rude answers or comments . Thank you.

  • What will my first full day at Walmart be like ? What should I expect ?

    I got hired at Walmart almost a week ago, and I had my orientation two days ago which consisted of watching safety videos, a tour of the store, meeting the hiring manager, one of the assistant managers, and asset protection and filling out a tax credit and I-9 form. Tomorrow I am working my first full shift there (9-6) , and I have no clue what to expect. I was told I’d meet the store manager, but I haven’t received my vest or name badge yet or done any CBLs. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with knowing what to expect. ( I know it may vary by individual location )

  • Any advice for renting an apartment for the first time? ?

    I’m 19 years old ( 20 in April ), and a full time university student. I’m taking 13 credit hours this semester and I have a part time job in a restaurant as a cashier working anywhere from 13 to 22 hours per week. I have been planning on renting an apartment at some point during this year, but I only make $8.50/hr. I am currently speaking with my managers about adjusting my schedule to work more hours weekly. I know the obvious choice would be to get a roommate, but I don’t really have any potential options for roommates and the only person who has expressed interest does not have a job or their drivers license. As I cannot pay a full rent plus utilities, or be someone’s full time transportation, that isn’t feasible. I was wondering if anyone could provide me with any advice as to what I should look for , how to look for affordable apartments, or even what I should know moving out on my own for the first time. Thank you!

  • What are Georgia laws on breaks during work? ?

    I recently worked a 12 hour shift at the seafood restaurant I work at ( 11am to 11pm) . During that time I was given two half hour breaks, one at 2pm and one at 7pm. I have heard this is a pretty standard rule across the U.S. when it comes to breaks in food service. I was wondering if anyone knew the rules or laws in any more detail , as I am having difficulty locating the information online. I’m just curious if anywhere has different policies.

  • Why are people especially rude to fast food employees? ?

    I currently work in a seafood restaurant, and I have worked there for a year and nine months . I am a cashier , and I work front counter, drive thru, and dining room positions. I am not a cook , so I have nothing to do with the process of preparation of the food that we serve. However, when any of the orders are messed up, even slightly, the customers will take it out on the cashiers as if we had anything to do with how the food was made. Our job is to handle transactions, take orders, hand orders out, and keep the dining room clean. We have nothing to do with cooking or plating the food. Also, the restaurant I work at has excellent cashier staff who rarely messes up when taking an order, and as degrading as it sounds, it is typically the kitchen staff that plates orders incorrectly. I was wondering, and if actually like to hear from people who take their anger out on cashiers , you know who you are. However, I was wondering how people could be so incompetent.

  • Should I quit this job ? ?

    I am planning on putting my two weeks notice at work tomorrow morning. I am 19 years old and currently a sophomore in college. I have worked at my current job as a cashier in a seafood restaurant for a year and nine months . It has begun to take a toll on my mental health. I am constantly anxious and depressed when I’m there and considering what I make per hour, it feels as if I’m being made to feel lucky to receive a paycheck. A few months back, I saw a counselor for panic attacks at work and they haven’t subsided even though I try to utilize the coping mechanisms. I work between 24-30 hours a week and that’s too much with my course load and schoolwork. I’m planning to cover/ save the money for my bills for the next two months while I look for a new job , and take a bit of a mental health break. Does it sound like I am right in my decision to leave this job ?

    I am doing a project for my sociology class, and I was tasked with finding examples of redemptive social movements for the social institutions of agriculture, education, religion, family, government and economy, and the environment. I have religion covered, but I have not been able to find much research on redemptive social movements in the other institutions of socialization. Any help would be tremendously appreciated! :)

  • What should I get my friend for her birthday?

    My friend is turning 20 years old in about two weeks, and I have no idea what to get her for her birthday. Some of her favorite hobbies are traveling, reading, and learning languages (French, to be specific). Some of the things she enjoys are Marvel, comic books, watching action and sci-fi movies, hanging out with friends, and playing with her pets. She loves dogs, cats, polar bears, and monkeys. Fashion-wise, her sense of style is very eccentric and consists mostly of skinny jeans , graphic tee shirts, denim jackets, and sneakers. However, despite this knowledge, I am unsure as to what would be the perfect gift for her birthday. All answers are appreciated! :)

  • How long would this tattoo take ?

    I am 18, and I have been wanting to get this particular tattoo since I was 15 (but obviously I was too young), but I want to get a semicolon with the top dot turned into a heart, and the date 2-21-15 written vertically to the left of the semicolon. I want to get this on my inner right wrist. I was wondering though, how long would that take ( I want the semicolon and date pretty small), and how painful it would be on the inner wrist ( feel free to suggest other locations that could be less painful ) ? I have heard the pain compared to that of a cat scratching a sunburn, but that doesn't give me a very good idea. I was wondering if anyone on here could provide some insight. Thanks :)

  • I want to write my friends a message, but I want to write them in their native languages. Would this be okay, or would it come off as rude ?

    I have several friends who speak English as a second language. I have always wanted to write them something in their native languages ( respectively Spanish and Tagalog and perhaps I will also write my friend who speaks French as a second language.) I do not want to do this to impress them, but to help further strengthen our bonds with one another. I am just curious as to whether this act would be perceived as a good thing that shows that I am trying to better understand them and their world or would it be viewed as trying too hard. I know it may simply depend on the individual. Personally, I think it would be viewed as a sincere attempt of strengthening the connections between my friends and I. I plan to edit and ensure that the messages are as grammatically correct and correct in wording as I possibly can. I have been learning phrases in all of these languages. What do you think ?

  • I don't feel smart enough for my classes. What should I do? *serious answers only please*?

    I'm in 11th grade, and I have always been a very gifted honors student. However, recently my grades just keep going down and I feel so helpless about them . I know I'm not capable of bringing them up. Every time I bring it up to family I get yelled at to shut up and get over myself, which usually ends with me in tears. I have had clinical depression since I was 12, and generalized anxiety disorder since age 14. The only people who will listen, are my 2 best friends, who are both seniors and won't be there next year. Usually,after parental arguments, I can call one of them and they'll help me calm down and cheer me up. The last parental argument I had was before school, and as soon as I got there and saw my best friend, I fell apart crying on her shoulder. But right now, my biggest issue is feeling like in lacking in intelligence. What should I do?

  • Is it okay to talk to my best friend about being sad about her graduating?

    My best friend is a senior in high school and I'm a junior. She is graduating next month, and while I'm beyond proud, I am also a little sad she'll be leaving me . I'm so used to walking into theatre and giving her a big hug and then cracking up backstage while trying not to be too loud. Without her around, I'm scared I'll be lonely and bored. And, I know it's not about me, but this hurts too much to keep it to myself I look up to her so much,and it feels like she would be the right person to talk to about it, but I don't want to bring her down. What should I do?
