    Yeah, I am just waiting for the economy to collapse again before buying. Prices in Colorado (Denver area) are out of hand, especially since legalizing pot. I have faith in Trump.
    Won't happen while boomers are still the majority demographic. They were bought off last time, they'll be bought off this time.

    There is merit in this approach, but I see baby boomers continuing to downsize and buy up everything under $300k. And this process will continue for years, so any good deals will be snapped up.

    I moved to the city I am in now to await a bubble and hang on to sweet low rent and higher wages. I dont care much about muh safety since I am a 6'3" white dude that doesn't look rich or fun to rob. If you can move to a cheaper place and still work, I'd advise it but since you arent in a rush, examine your rental agency or find less binding contracts. The US is a nightmare for varying tenant rights, not sure how good yours will be based on where you are now or where you wanna be.

    All in all you should move out, it will teach you a lot and you'll have some stories in the end.

    I managed to secure a work place that was great (minus 2h round about commute which was tolerable). Got conned into accepting a position "20 minutes closer". Turns out the place is a complete shithole (not my words) and the traffic makes it 40 minutes extra (although in actual miles IT IS closer).

    Apparently although I've been promised that I'll be moved to the previous job if I don't like it here I'm going to be stuck here for another 2 weeks as a minimum and 12 weeks as a maximum. FML.


    Also did suicide watch and support for a former colleague who (luckily unsuccessfuly attempted really determined and by all common sense should be ded now but lo and behold) and managed to become emotionally drained completely. Also may have fallen for her inadvertedly because why the fuck not (interest was there before this whole story, however, which my therapist says is "better" in that I'm not attracted only by people in mental distress. FML #2. Obviously she's uninterested in anything else besides sleeping (not with anyone, though), to me it looks like deep depression I can't help with and she refuses to see a therapist but uses me as an outlet.

    Washing machine died. Landlord replaced for free with a better one and I have no idea what I'm doing with it (roughly). Good stuff, tho, I suppose.


    I just want a 3 year holiday on a beach somewhere with cocktails with tiny straw hats and a couple of hookers. But I'm so exhausted I might just sleep through it all anyway. Fuck. It. All. With. A. Stick.


    I'm not actually angry though, I know I fucked myself royally job-wise but that's my own doing and at the moment I'm working on forgiving myself and trying to make the best I can do with what I got. Which is not much, but it's honest work, I suppose \_(ツ)_/

    The suicide watch thing, while noble, sounds like it may be unhealthy for you, if you are pining over her and she isn't in a position to have a relationship. Take care of yourself first, or you can't really help others. Sounds selfish, but I don't know if you have the strength to get used like that without harming yourself.

    2-12 weeks isn't all that long. In fact it'll all be over before Christmas!

    Have a laugh at yourself and don't worry about it too much - it's infinitely easier to put up with something like that when you know it's only temporary. Take the opportunity to make some contacts at that site; find out who's useful to know and who has to be... worked around. There's no substitute for face to face knowledge for that kind of thing and it might serve you well when you shift to the other site.

    So I'm about to quit a solid well paying job to start my own business. I can't tell if I'm shitting myself through fear or excitement.
    She did what?

    As long as you've got some reserve cash and didn't burn any bridges on your way out.

    I don't know either. I don't even know why I was there, the whole thing seemed like a bad dream. But I know I didn't want to try to seduce somebody in that state.
    And it is not noble, it's quite nightmarish. All I could do for a while was listen and be terrified of making things worse as well as try to control sadfaces.

    It will be ok, tho.

    You, I like your attitude. I'm working on doing exactly that and tbh it'll help me appreciate other things more. I don't really believe in bad hands dealt, but I know one can make it worse in failing inhow to deal with them properly. I always had some stuff to gain from seemingly bad situations.

    But I'll need more therapy and that is annoying. Had a session last week after a few months and it was so good that it convinced me it's a good investment moving forward.

    A year in review and I'm looking in the mirror and wondering who is this handsome motherfucker in there.

    It's been such a rollercoaster ride. But it's good. Storm's almost over and I'm still holding in structure with armour reppers kicking in. Work is fine for the first time in a long time, I sorted recommendations and curriculum, I'm taking my exam in January and I'm getting signed off on competencies. I'm finally ready to move on to a better job, hopefully training post towards the end of 2020. This was not easy and I am thankful that I haven't sunk and you nerds and a couple friends are wholly to blame for this

    Yeah my weight is still plateaued but I'm hitting the gym again and the gym is asking for mercy.

    Big ups Cosmin!

    My 2019 started rocky with the bipolar but i managed it. I am proud of it, after all these years i get decent at managing it. Psych is also proud and for the brain things i am pleased she is pleased. In july we decided to go to once every 6 months instead of 4 times a year. At my low point i did 3 sessions a week, basicly the max in Holland before going to a loony bin back then (now we have a better system that can do 6 times a week even at home if needed).

    I met a new girl after the rocky bit. She isn't clingy and we do stuff 2 times a week with some booty calls as a cherry on top. It is a balance i love and it seems she is the same. 2 days younger than me so i am still the wise nestor ^_^

    In July i finished my psych uni degree. Did not need it but for the long run it would be better for my career. 15% pay bump right after it was official. Employer paid for a bit of the uni cost but best part was that i got full paid study hours. I am stuck to a 2 year contract now tho that will cost me mucho dinero if i break it.

    Got a job offer in Israel to become a expat psych. Combined with my experience and C.V. they seem to think i am qualified altho i am only a base level psych with a metric fuckton of course diploma's (also have a polisci masters).
    Still thinking about it.

    Been playing eve a bit to much so i scaled that back in september. Very nice online group tho and i allways liked the social aspect of the hobby the most.

    Roughest patch i had in the summer with two clients suiciding. I really take it hard every time that happens. I got a free week off to deal with it seeing as i had very high blood pressure and high hart rate. Its ok now.

    All in all 2019 is win for me. Expecting 2020 to be trash as the cosmic balance needs to be restored.

    Serious, better find someone you can trust to tell you whether it's sustainable, healthcare (mental even more so, social work even more more so) system is dying (being murdered by policy), living is expensive (and crazy to add to the above).

    I see. Half my family live in Israel and i have been there many many times. It will be for a international company (friend of my uncle) and dealing with expats so not so much tied in with state health coverage. It are fair points tho and will ask some people, i have until february to decide job starting in june. Thanks

    My partner: "What are you doing, why did it take you so long, you're doing it wrong, just stop! I'll do it."
    Also my partner: "Why do I have to do everything?"

    My partner: "Why don't you ever do any cooking?"
    Me: thinks through list of meals I enjoy / am good at cooking, compares with list of meals my partner doesn't like eating, realises the correlation approaches 1.

    This is really coming off the back of me being away for ~7 months this year and doing a weekly commute to a city 180ks away from where she lives.

    Sounds like you two need to have a talk. Prior to one of the major break ups in my life things were going exactly the same. She wouldn't be happy with anything I'd do and when I'd do it - it would not be satisfactory. Basically there's something bugging her about your relationship and these manifestations are the "check engine light" of your relationship. And yes, you should talk to her and see what's up. Otherwise it'll probably end soon.
