whyy0umadth0ugh no, they are in college but they seem around 19. I can understand constructive “this is good” (such as graphic design programs or new feature of leaving groups messages) but no. It’s all hardware and apple hardware isn’t fantastic

communismkills there is NO doubt in mind that you will regret it if you let your parents force you to drop out of college. You are nearly done with your education and you are an adult, you need to make this decision for yourself and not let them push you around for whatever reason they have come up with. 

It might be hard to do, but it’s worth it for yourself and your future. 

My dad couldn’t finish college and he is brilliant. Because he has zero degrees, he makes about 20k less per year, is constantly pressured into getting a degree (by clients), and the first 20 years were very very rough. Finish school. Even if you don’t like it or it sucks, at least you’ll have a degree and be able to do something

Uncle Sam may start charging you for the right to access the Internet.

Or you might soon find yourself paying a sales tax on purchases made at online retailers like Amazon and eBay.

Depending on whom you ask, the two issues are either completely unrelated or close cousins. The first is a sort of doomsday scenario that would come to pass if a long-standing federal ban on charging a tax for Internet access isn’t renewed by Congress. The second will become reality if an online-sales-tax bill, supported by brick-and-mortar retailers, gets passed as a piggyback measure to the ban.

Before Congress flees Washington later this week to begin its final burst of election-season campaigning, it must address the ban on federal, state, and local taxes on Internet access due to expire on Nov. 1.

rtrixie see? This is the nightmare that is society. You either have corporations looking to charge for internet access or you have the government looking to tax you for using it. This is only America mind you, but the question isn’t how to stop higher prices, rather a matter of who to trust. Which is still very iffy

Hearing these two girls talk about apple as being glorious makes me wanna vomit. Especially about the new watch. Seriously, she works at a phone repair place and has all this apple stuff. But she said “I’ll just sell the iPod and to get the watch cause they’re about the same price (none of their iPods are close to the price) and the watch does everything the iPad does”.

Wtf? An iPad is better since you have a big screen. They need a lesson in real hardware

The entire notion of bachelor/ette parties needs to be destroyed….

If you have a dopey fiancé (I’m likely to be dopey lol) then you need the rehearsal. Otherwise the guy might just lose it

He’d have to be awful dopey to mess up saying “I do” in front of, like, ten people.

Haha I’m thinking of not saying something stupid or vows or something.

I honestly have no idea how weddings work which is my biggest problem

so you're not waiting until marriage

I find me getting married highly unlikely at this point.

yeahhh now i don’t think i’ll get married either. unless it’s pretty much just to have kids.

It’s a shame two beautiful women like yourselves doubt you’ll get married.

thank you :) i’m pretty pessimistic about marriage lately to be honest though.

I’m the same way.

it seems like it’s only a ton of trouble and there are so many horror stories about it too.

I agree. So many of my friends’ parents have gotten divorced, and it makes me question whether anyone out there is right for me. Like, I’d rather just not deal with it because I’m sick of caring about who don’t have the decency to acknowledge it.

EXACTLY!

Don’t give up hope, y’all! All of us might be in our thirties by the time we find decent men, but it will happen. Just remember that your future children deserve a traditional family with a married mother and father, and marriage may be a lot of work, but it can last if you’re dedicated and put the effort in.

i seriously really needed a good reminder like that, thank you! :D

No problem. I have to talk myself out of mini panic attacks all the time when I start feeling like an old maid for not being married at twenty-two…lol.

Lol I absolutely gave up and conceded to being a single adult when I met my current gf. Sometimes it takes time. Other times you just have to give up entirely

smokeybissli replied to your post “I wear suits and always get selected, I think next time I’ll try adding some cat ears and one of those anime ties and see if it works. I postponed my recent jury duty until november, so I’ll find out”

my dream is to do jury duty i only have like 2-3 years AT MOST before i am ineligible for life ugh

w-whaa

there’s an age cap on that?

I think it’s because she’s entering law

That is correct. If you have a greater understanding of the legal system (or the case) you become ineligible. If you hate jury duty, tell them you’ve read tons of law books in your free time
