Damn I don't care at all about her mediocre music but she looks so cute. I'm sure her head does sometimes look somewhat small compared to her body but that's almost a given for a 5'10" woman if you're comparing their proportions to average women.

Inspired by thread >>>/ot/189595

What's your basic bitch fashion, farmer?

Itens you can't live without?
Ask for help to shape up your style, etc.
Do you follow any weeby fashion trends, or you like Western style clothing better?

We've had many recet threads asking for help to get a better personal style, but I think images would help a lot.

This is mine. I'm simple and always go for darker tones. Quite boring and I don't like to stand out, but I'm happy with it.

You can get some plain basics for cheaper than licensed stuff like anime/vidya. Plus when you’re young your taste is still developing, and it’s not like you’re getting about in truly terrible things like swastikas or bondage gear in public.

I just downloaded as much shit as I could tbh. I NEVER wanted to be bored anywhere.

The “line of sentience” doesn’t differentiate vegans from vegetarians at all. Dairy, eggs, and honey still involve sentient creatures being used for food; they’re just not directly supporting the death of sentient creatures for consumption.

How sad that we rely on bees being needed for farming to keep their population thriving.

I’ve been vegan for 5 years and I only took a calcium + Vit D supplement while pregnant. Otherwise nothing - I just eat a varied and healthy diet.

Samefag but excerpt from my course material on commercial farming and climate change. People eating more animal products are causing more land to be used to sustain production, which in turn is damaging soil and changing the environment (as well as contributing hugely to methane gas emittance), which causes climate change.

I understand it's criticizing him, that he's not a scientist, and he makes graphs to appear more sciencey. He's kind of an over confident cock. A lot of his stuff is still correct- But you could look into Mike Anderson and the rave diet documentaries if you want people with a lot of PhDs and credentials, he interviews a lot of doctors invested in the diet for health and nutrition that used to consume animal products and only got into plant based after their own research and experiences. The Gurson Therapy movies are great as well, I think some are on netflix, if I remember right it goes into why there hasn't been a lot of material published on vegan food or lifestyle for health. I only really name drop him because he's easily accessible, but seriously, look into Mike Anderson and Gurson if you're legit trying to get into it for health.

No. 233510

I had bloods done multiple times and I was told I'm not deficient in anything (not even B12 which I was surprised by but it's probably due to fortified milk and cereals). But when I got sick last year I asked my doctor for recommendations and she said B12, vitamin C, iron, probiotics (and supplements that feed the bacteria!) and pine bark would be good.

A lot of that you can get naturally by eating lots of fruit, kidney beans and fortified foods. The only real thing that you can't get normally as a vegan is probiotics.

No. 233543

You can get vegan probiotics easily. Here’s a list: https://www.newsmax.com/t/newsmax/article/705026/113

So I'm 23 and a lot has happened since I left uni- I got into a retail job to pay my bills, came out of therapy feeling (mostly) healthier mentally, I've got some great friends and a relationship I want to work out, and I'm getting over the loss of my father who died recently.

My problem is in the last couple years that I have a habit of starting, stopping, settling….so I've stayed in the same job that makes me miserable while I've had to be back and forth there and hospital during my dad's illness, and I've entered a mental phase of "there is nothing out there you're good enough for"

Now that his funeral has passed and I've been away travelling with friends and I've come back with a fresh mindset, I realize this year I want to turn that all around.

I want to quit my job to work somewhere with a solid routine, like a Monday-Friday, I want to learn to be braver about persuing what I want to. I feel like two years of retail should be sufficient on a CV.

I live and rent by myself, and I often fall into the self doubt trap of wanting to impress my mother who has very different ideals to me and was very controlling in my upbringing…only since moving out is she realizing I'm my own person, but she does occassionally try to interfere and I want to learn how to deal with that.

Tldr it's time I got back into being healthier, exercising, and most importantly getting myself the motivation to apply for better jobs and feel like I'm able to reach for the things I want to do.

I feel like my cvs and applications are destined to always be rejected and my fatigue from my current job as well as depression sometimes holds me back.

How do I kick myself so I can start living the life I want? I can get out of bed now when four years ago I couldn't bring myself to…but how do I get myself out of this mental metaphorical bed and go make myself proud?

No. 232280

I hope you are still around as your thread is kind of old.

>How do I kick myself so I can start living the life I want?

The first step would be to think about your goals in life. What do you want to do? Who do you want to be? Write down your goals. Then a few days later look at the paper again and check if you are sure about it. This gives you a general outline about what to do. Some people believe you should never plan detailed plans because in the end it always comes different then expected.

Then the next step would be to make your goals SMART.
Basically you need to define your goals in a manner that makes them achievable and of course you need an indicator that will show if you achieved them or not. For example (one type of goal many people have each january):

>I want to lose weight

not a smart goal because there are no details given about how much and in what time

>I want to lose 5 pounds of weight during the next 2 months while using low fat diet and exercising 2 days a week

goal defined in a smart way. Goals are defined in detail and can be measured.

I am hoping I get a response today, if not, I will be phoning up on my lunch to ask!
And you do deserve your job, it might jut take you a while to get into the swing of things. It's taken me 5 jobs to finally settle with the fact I have to interact with society and the general public on a daily basis. I hate it, but at the moment I am willing to lick shit off the pavement to get food on the table. My job mentally exhausts me but only because customers in general aren't a bright bunch of people and some of the other girls I work with are bullying a small group of us because we are younger and better at the job than they are. They follow us around the store, time us on our breaks and say lots of horrible thing, thinking we can't hear them. These are 40+ year old women btw.

I've calmed down a lot since last night but I am still fucked off.

Oh, and yeah, seconding Indeed for interviews. Maybe look into getting your CV combed through by a professional too, or if you have a friend/family member in a management role, get them to have a look at it and see what they would change/add!

No. 232906

Thanks. I do use Indeed to search, it's my main one.
And I'll see if one of the lab technicians from my uni will look at it as I am mainly looking as those types of jobs. I have had a lot of feedback on this before as my CV had to be marked for coursework every year during my degree but that doesn't really seem to have helped.

No. 232914

That's a really good idea, definitely get one of them to check it out. I know you know what field you want to get into, but sometimes people in the industry can give you some pointers even if it's something as simple as changing the wording for something. My partner is in marketing so he knows how to appeal to management, so that has helped me a lot in regards to knowing how to write to get a potential employers attention.
Keep plugging away though. You'll nab something eventually!

Have you been writing a special cover letter for each posting? I have written a cover letter for every serious position I've applied to because it's basically mandatory now for young people. I use a lot of the same paragraphs describing my duties and skills from work and school, but you also have to tailor it to include words used from the job posting. I was told since some places get so many apps for one posting, a computer goes through searching for relevant terms and filters out ones that seem generic and don't mention anything listed from the posting.

Even with all of that I've never heard back from retail stores or places that would seem easy to get an interview so don't be too upset anon.

my endo told me that being fat is a symptom of PCOS, not the other way around.

…really fucking sucks. I lost 40lbs after my diagnosis, and then a few years later gained every bit of weight back until I was dx with hypothyroidism as well. in one year I've only managed to lose 15lbs of it and I had to fight for every single pound with a tiny low carb diet and daily exercise. I lose like 1lb a month now. It sucks so much.
