"Do you have any vacation days you can take? A nice break from work and home might be good for you. Maybe a nice Mancation? Just a thought.
I know how you feel. I've been feeling like that for a while here at my job. I'm just not motivated…"
"My wife is a paramedic/fire fighter (associates in para-medicine and fire science) - it took her about 17 months of schooling, and she worked while she got it.
I've been in the same boat as you - close to a degree, hating my job, and getting…"
"B.J., if you haven't already, I'd suggest a few things that helped me as I endure a desk job that's taking me nowhere fast.
1) Find out what "fills my cup" in the short term and do that. For me, it could be as simple as…"
"Can't say it's as much advice as it is just a thought to mull for a while.
My friend's dad came to me as he was leaving my wedding. We talked briefly, and he told me that he wanted to make a toast to my wife and I but didn't get…"
"As a paramedic, I can definitely relate to what you're going through! For a while, I worked a rotating 12-hr night shift (2 on, 2 off, 3 on, 2 off, 2 on, 3 off). What worked best for me was just planning on sleeping during the day. As mentioned…"
"Take this with a grain of salt, but look into some Fish Pills(Omega 3's).
When I get off of them, my sleep is just not productive, I am angry, I am bitter, I start fights, I only find the negative in things. Within a day of getting back on…"
"For what it's worth, God gave us the ability to figure out how to do all kinds of things that are wrong. That we discovered the ability to do it doesn't necessarily mean it isn't "automatically wrong".
To answer the…"
"I was hoping she did but no. I don't even think it should matter, it's still me asking her out no matter how I do it. Wish I could've known. So there's 0 chance now? Calling her after getting a no through text probably won't…"
"Sounds like you and your dad need to listen to your Johnny Cash singing about his Cadillac
My view on the whole thing though is that if God gave us the ability to figure this stuff out, then it can't automatically be wrong. For a discussion…"
"In that case I share your beliefs and concerns. As I too would worry about that being, being an empty shell. I see no way that a truly "artificial being" could possess a soul, and that is truly what worries me more than just…"
"If she doesn't want to answer, she won't. If she wants to talk to you, she will pick up. That takes care of calling or not. Remember, a big chunk of us grew up when you would call the entire house just to speak with her. So calling her…"
"You can still start with an egg and a sperm and grow a being in a lab. Is that what you're considering man made, or because it started as two parts (sperm and egg), is it not man made? What constitutes "Man Made"…"
