"I would say a store like Plato's Closet, your local city's Facebook virtual garage sale, or eBay. My wife has sold stuff through all 3 and made money. If you have some popular brands people will pay crazy money on eBay. I don't get…"

"Honestly you're not going to get much. I would suggest donating them or keep some around. I still have eight graphic t-shirts at 33, just nice to wear when going on errands or a walk or to relax around the house."

Job Anxiety - Afraid of getting/keeping a job?

I graduated high school last June. I wanted to focus on school until then, so after i graduated I went to find just a entry level job in town.

I have had social anxiety for years in school, but I managed it enough to pass. I got hired at Wendy's and I had to deal with all these people yelling at me and it made me very anxious. I was getting nausea during working…See More

Apollyon replied to Carl Byrd's discussion Is Software Development a manly skill? Or is it hipster?
"These days, software keeps the world running. Anything that integrated with civilization is plenty manly. It's not hipster unless you are developing a really "lame" app that we probably haven't heard of."
