The Barbershop

Anything from a good barbershop that you have found  to pictures and stories of shops you have visited to discussing anything barbershop.  See More

"Alles ist nie so schlimm wie es aussieht. Normalesweise ist es schlecter."

- Im "schlechter" fehlt ein "h" ...
- "Normalesweise" ist nicht korrekt. Richtig wäre: "Normalerweise"
- Nach "schlimm" würde sich glaub ich ein Komma gut machen. Ich bin mir aber nicht wirklich sicher in dieser Sache ...

20 year old looking for advice from you "white collar" gents.....is the money worth it?

This has always been the area I've struggled with most in my life....finding out what to do for a career. I've never had a passion for one specific thing. There isn't one job that seems to "stick out" over the others. I'm kind of in every direction when it comes to choosing careers. One day I'll think welder, the next it's logistics, the next it's cyber security. At 20 years old this feeling of uncertainty is not where I want to be, so I'm really trying to figure out not just what I want to do…See More
