Thanks for the advice anons. As for debt, I have a full academic scholarship so that is not a worry for me thankfully. But I know I should still major in something practical.
CS anon, how is it? Do you enjoy it in any capacity or are you just doing it for the $$?

Any advice for which fields I can look into?
Do you think becoming a lawyer is an unpractical field?

Thanks!

I am enjoying it so far. I'm almost done with the degree (1 class left) and I've learned a lot so far. I enjoy being able to make apps/websites and then designing a colorful layout for it or having menus come out in creative ways. I also enjoy solving programming puzzles on codingbat and leetcode. If I want to eventually make work from home on the side through Fiverr or similar, that's always an option.

I never considered being a lawyer but I heard it was oversaturated.
Do what's best for you.

There are a lot of negative problematic men in my classes and after reading brotopia, I am not looking forward to it. As long as I get my coin and make friends with nerdy tech girls, that's all I want.

I honestly don't want to go back to school and my current job (when everything hopefully goes back to normal) is a decent pay but it's freelanced and not even one of the art I want to do as a living. Only got into because I happened to be good at it. I honestly don't want to be an office person. Ideally if I could I would make things for sets and shit, but I know I need a backup plan. I was considering drafting, any anons who do this type of job or are in some type of schooling for it.

My employer is dragging their feet insofar as letting me know if they'll renew my contract in May. I had to ask about it today so they can at least give me a few week's notice if they choose not to for whatever reason.
My immediate manager keeps saying "We want to keep you," but apparently he's not who I was supposed to be impressing. He told me he'll write an email to ask. Apparently who I was meant to be impressing is this middle aged corporate lady who strikes me as a complete shark. I have limited interactions with her, because she's always holed up in her suite and never seems to be doing shit that's not a meeting. She always strikes me as passive aggressive, only emerging from her hole to micromanage and spy on people who actually work. And sometimes at meetings ramble about complete nonsense and ask questions because she's out of the loop. Definitely one of those dumb types who somehow got into her position but enjoys the power trip.

Now I don't recall ever being mean or unpleasant to her, but she's got it out for me for her reasons. Like if she's got a problem with my performance then I've never been made aware, so it can only be her personal dislike at this point. The company is a pharmaceutical so if anything we are NOT getting rid of people right now, we're busy. So if this bitch puts me out on the street during a fucking pandemic for her little vendetta I sincerely hope she catches covid. I can't imagine being such a cruel, unfeeling bitch so as to purposefully trash someone's job during a crisis.

idk about that… you could assume that Koreaboos are specifically attracted to Korean fashion/hair trends and beauty standards, which is less inherently weird than being into a specific race. Maybe if stylish white twinks with rainbow bowlcuts were all the rage in the west, Koreaboos would go for them instead.

>What is Breadtube and the leftist sphere?
A new leftist movement aiming to address, fight, and destroy the growing presence of fascism in the USA. AKA, breadtube is keyboard warriors making response videos to anti-SJW’s and the leftist sphere is a place that preaches diversity while all their biggest players are white or TIM.

>General summary of their beliefs

- They are not liberals. Liberals believe first and foremost on changing the system from the inside while Leftists want to destroy it.
-They have slap fights over the intricacies of their political beliefs every other wednesday. The only thing uniting them is leftism.

>Breadtube: The big players only. Other tubers exist, but these are the ones pulling the shots.

- HBomberGuy (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UClt01z1wHHT7c5lKcU8pxRQ)
Defended his rapist script writer because they were trans and made an entire google plug in the block anti-SJW videos from appearing in ones feed.

I'm a leftist (not a lib, which is more what I'd peg her as) but I also find that aspect of her content obnoxious and to a degree, performative.
When her audience was smaller a decade-ish ago it was a lot more varied in the types of viewpoints people held. When she initally joined tgwtg she was one of two women on the site. It was inevitable that misogynist dudes were going to give her shit. The proto-sjws in her audience would defend her and she started pandering to them to a degree. Over time they multiplied and she kept doubling down on the pandering. It sucks because I do enjoy her stuff. She's also not the only person writing for her videos anymore so that probably comes into it as well. Maggie May Fish is waaayyy worse. She talks about a lot of things I find interesting but her political posturing is so grating that I can't finish a lot of her videos.

No. 540937

LE’s politics don’t bother me so much as her “le feels xD” millenial humor. Sometimes I disagree with her analysis and yeah she comes off as insincere/pandering but that’s easy to ignore. What I can’t get past is the 2010-era Turn Down For What jokes and unironic bottom text memes. She’s not that old and she spends so much of her time online, I don’t get why she’s still stuck in that nyan cat era.

What ambitions did you have for yourself in your younger years that didn't come true? They can be anywhere on the scale, from something as out there as being a famous actress to something as simple as just wanting to be a great artist.

My dream was to have a successful music career. "Successful" didn't have to mean pop star, just making a good living off of music. Back in the day, I imagined I would have at least four or five albums by the time I was done with my 20's. Now there's just a couple years left in them and I don't even have one. Needless to say, I have long since accepted that dream will never come true.

I wanted to be either a fashion designer, costume designer or set designer or all of those. I would love to work on historical costumes and sew them for stage and movies. I would LOVE to work on the set of a historical tv show or movie making costumes and props.. gave up on all of those. that industry is really niche and hard to get into. I just don't have the talent.

I always wanted to be an illustrator, and I still do want to work in visual arts, but growing up with really bad self esteem and difficulty motivating myself made me abandon drawing for a long time so Im back at square one with my drawing skills. Im also a poorfag with no formal art training so its gonna be awhile before I can go to any type of school to specialize in visual arts. They say good things come to those who wait, so we’ll see.

I feel you, anon, but every single book that's published is "based" on an already existing idea and nothing is original. Your backstory doesn't mean anything if you can't write about it in an interesting way, I'm sure you're story would entertain lots of people! Personally, I love memoirs and autobiographies even though the people who write them have lived similar lives and their stories aren't that different. Don't crush your dream like that, I'm sure you have talent

Bloated pancake face being hailed as this generations SUPER model has to get on my nerves the most. She looks like such a run of the mill basic blonde girl who shouldn't have made it past Victoria Secret but I guess if mommy and daddy have enough money…then you get to be the next high fashion it girl.

My ex-bf's dad was in his fifties and literally sits all day playing vidya while his wife works and his adult sons also stay home playing games all day. It's not just a young man problem, they are all boring shits. I think the main problem with men and their hobbies is that they are autistic about one thing for life and it makes them very dull to have a conversation with if you don't like that one topic. That's why so many women try to like the same interests as the man they date; they just want to have a good conversation and the man is unwilling to even budge on his autism. Funny how they will say the same thing about us though. Like oh women are so BORING they can't even autistically ramble on for an hour about vidya and then draw a blank at any other subject, omg why are the womenz so DUMB. The projection is intense.

I currently have 3 nipple piercings (I have two piercings in one side), have had them for about 10 years. They healed fine, but be prepared for a few uncomfortable weeks. For me, it didn't really affect the skin around my nipple at all. My nipple is a bit bigger and more sensitive than before, but that's about it.
As the others said, wearing bra kinda hurts until it heals. Not wearing bras was also a bit uncomfortable at the beginning too, so what I did is wear a bra slightly bigger than my size that I had around, just so my shirt wouldn't rub against them. (not that doing it is necessary, it was just what was more comfortable for me).
My first nipple piercing took long to heal, I think more than 4 months? But that's because I kept on laying on my stomach. Don't be me. The other two healed fine, in like a month or two I could barely even feel them.
(Also, sorry if my wording doesn't make much sense, I'm not a native english speaker)

I've had many re-piercings, and honestly, it feels about the same as the initial one. I've repierced my nostrils, philtrum and nipples and the worst for me was my philtrum, but that's because it is generally a painful piercing to get. Just go get it done when it's safe to do so! It's never as bad as you remember.

Does anyone else here want to be a YouTuber? Have you made any attempt? What about it appeals to you? Do you want to, but there are certain things keeping you from taking the plunge?

I want to do it so badly, but there are some deal breakers that cancel out the appeal, such as obsessive viewers with no boundaries. Also, there's too much financial inconsistency involved, and I'm fat and there's no way in hell I would ever go on camera until I lost at least 40lbs. I love anything film related and it would be a dream job if there weren't so many cons.

You have to proof read over and over again , page by page until it reads like something you yourself would be happy to have paid for. It's best to set yourself a target of one page a day in the beginning and and a year for something completed. Remember that you are telling a story and stories didn't begin on the page but began around fires entertaining people. Get into the habit of speaking your story out loud , perhaps recording it to dictaphone. It's hard work but you know that.
