re "The 4 year university...scam...fighting for same jobs"
--- U.S. jobs growth has averaged 174,000 per month so far in 2017, and average monthly gain of 187,000 in 2016,
That's per MONTH!
With an above average UW education, most everyone will be fine, with a little effort. I hate to be insulting to all others in that group by including you in it; but youre a tard.

If you are a woman, AVOID Eau Claire Games and Arcade at all costs. One of the managers WILL sexually harass you. For the "drawings", he only picks the hot women to win so he can creep on them. Staff members have had to leave after constant harassment and in one case, sexual assault. The manager also posts fake reviews on the company Facebook and other accounts and uses unrelated groups to advertise, then chastising the group admins for not letting him shill. And the worst part is if you point any of this out, you're banned from their social media pages. If the #metoo
movement has taught us anything, it is that this behavior cannot and WILL NOT go unpunished.

ISO study help. Whoever it is doesn't necessarily need to be a student. Help answering questions would be a bonus, but honestly I mostly just want someone to help hold me accountable with an extremely busy work schedule. My plan is to meet for approximately 1-2hrs a week until about the end of April, paying up to $600 total. If anyone is seriously interested, please comment and I will reach out to you!

Lately I've been thinking a lot of this. This probably isn't the right place to confess it, but I'm out of options and need to vent. I'm fully expecting to be mocked and/or doubted for this, but I've no other avenue to express it. I'm male, straight. I hate admitting even a single word of this, but here goes...
When I was in high school, two girls forcefully kissed me on three separate occasions. The first time, it was just a kiss and I pushed her off, didn't think much of it (knew she'd had a crush on me and I figured she just wasn't thinking).
The second time was a little weirder. Same girl. We were the same age, but she was a little bigger and maybe a little stronger (which is hard for me to admit, even today and even anonymously). She came up behind me and got me in this kind of hold, with one arm hooked under my armpit and the other over my throat, and kissed me on the side of my neck, tongue and everything. I did struggle but I couldn't shake her off. The whole thing caught me unawares and the contact made me "weak" somehow; my body was telling me to like it, but consciously I felt humiliated so I was in this weird, passive limbo where I huddled up in my head. I remember my mouth drying up and my arms going limp. This was in full view of the rest of the (then teacherless) classroom. No one said anything or laughed, but we were on the front row so maybe people just saw her "hugging" me.
The third time, about a month later, two other girls held my arms back and a third girl planted a quick kiss on me. I don't remember the circumstances, but this one did start as a "game" of sorts. They were kidding and I wasn't entirely unperceptive, but as soon as I remembered the previous occasion, I "froze" just as I had then--it's hard to explain. Only one of them noticed and privately asked me if I was OK later, then she apologized.
I won't say I didn't feel a tinge of excitement when these things happened but I definitely did not consent to any of these situations as I was in a relationship at the time of the second incident (with a girl from another school, which I never told any of this to).
Needless to say the whole thing made me feel emasculated and it took years for me to forget it until the whole sexual misconduct thing in the media started a little bit ago.
I just feel that I have no avenue through which I could express these emotions without feeling judged or pitied, especially as a man. Most of all I hate myself for "liking" what happened to me even a little bit. I keep telling myself that it was just biology, just a chemical reaction, that she had no right and it was wrong to do that to someone else. Thinking back on it makes me feel revulsion and something else indescribable. I just don't know how to deal with it... hadn't even thought of it until recently in lieu or all the media.

Grandma Millie can go suck a bug. This Viking team was up 17 and still needed a miracle and the worst defensive play of all time to win it. That wont happen again.

I grew up in a broken family. My mother abused and manipulated me until I was 17 because the court awarded her custody. My father has always been emotionally withdrawn and selfish. I feel like I have never been loved. I have trouble with women and never have long relationships. I am confused but nobody seems to understand or believe me. I am friendly and compassionate but there is this darkness that surrounds me and I think people notice. I scare people because of this similar to being near a funeral director or coroner. How am I suppose to have a loving relationship when I have no experience in either?
