Hello! This is the anon who wrote in a little while ago about being let go from her job. I just wanted to thank you for your kind advice, and let you know that the search paid off - I am starting a new job on monday! I"m super excited but also nervous - there are a lot of people i'm going to meet and a lot of projects that will be landing in my lap at once. Can i get some celebratory/calming British/Irish men? Thanks for taking the time to make your followers days that much brighter!
Congratulations on the new job!
I just told my parents about my anxiety problems and possible depression after several years of accidentally hiding it from them. I tend to turn to comedy when I'm upset, so could I possibly see a calming Jon Richardson? Thank you!
Your name may not be Rachel, but I thought this was funny :)
I hope they will be supportive of you. And even if they’re not, make sure you take care of yourself and get any help you need.
Thank you so much for the lovely Iwan/Kit and the advice! I sympathize and agree on all accounts. My small token of thanks is this lovely picture of the gorgeous men of Da Vinci’s Demons (Tom Riley, Blake Ritson, Gregg Chillin). xoxo
Hello lovely mods. I'm skipping around on cloud nine today because I just finished a story that took me 64 chapters, well over 250,000 words, and started being written in June...of last year. Might I possibly have a few gentlemen to celebrate my triumph?
life kind of sucks for me right now.. it kind of goes like this.. i'm 16, I don't have a job, I have no interest in having a boyfriend or girlfriend, and I don't share any interests with any of the people around me, I don't really know how to make friends and it seems like while other people are growing up and getting into relationships i'm just getting lazier and watching more bbc... any friendly advice?
Are you in need or want of a job? If so, yes they are scarce right now, but apply EVERYWHERE. Go to all interviews even for jobs that you don’t really want because the practice of interviewing will make it easier to impress when you go out for a job you do really want.
If you have no interest in having a boyfriend or girlfriend and have neither I see no problem with this and honestly do not understand why this is included with reasons your life sucks right now. If you think you are supposed to want or have one, that is incorrect. So moving on.
Not sharing interests with the people around you is something I understand quite well. I used to believe I was incapable of making friends. Turns out I just needed to find my tribe. It took a while and most of my closest friends sadly do not live very close to me, ranging from a couple of hours drive to different countries. But we do the best we can, staying in touch on line and the friends that are closer we make a plan to see each other at least a couple of times a year. This weekend I’m going to see some of my very favorite people and spend the entire weekend in glorious geekiness. You can find people that share in your interests, it just might take a little more effort.
As for being lazier and watching BBC. I see no issue with watching BBC. Now the lazy, this could be because you are feeling down and possibly depressed. It might be as simple as getting up and doing something that you love. Don’t be afraid to do it by yourself. Seriously there is nothing wrong with going to a movie, taking a walk, visiting a museum or a concert by yourself. You get to do whatever you like on your own schedule without having to worry about pleasing others. Also you just might find some of those like minded people that you are finding scarce. If on the other hand you are experiencing depression you should talk to your doctor for some expert medical advice.
Matthew Goode is eager to please.
