Did her dad threaten you again with the shotgun?

@megamanx181x, nice ring

I haven't died or killed myself yet
@ Mr Cuymenq, he a little confused, but he got the spirit
@MrJojo, I’m with you there
@ Mr Cuymenq, 1-800-273-8255 is the number for the prevention hotline. They are really helpful if you need to talk to someone.
@ Mr Cuymenq, same, mate, same
@ Mr Cuymenq, well my fiancée of 4 years just left me for no reason so it’s a little more tempting now.
@vonwulf337, i dont know what feelings youre going through personally because we all go through life differently, but it will get better. Even if it doesn't seem that way, you have to overcome those obstacles. You dont have to believe me, a random 26 year old stranger on the internet, but its your life to live. You can do whatever you set your mind and heart to. I dont know your fiancée or you but you know yourself. You have to know youre worth more than whatever pain youve been through.
@McZanderful, im far beyond any help now but thank you. I dont foresee myself ending it all or anything any time soon so dont worty about that
I was dirt poor at the beginning of the year because I was chasing after a dream with no real plan to achieve it but finally got back on track by getting a new engineering job that I actually love and have been able to support myself enough to get both a dog and a house and now I can pursue that same dream on the side (doing stuff with poetry) and also provide for myself and my new little puppy. It has honestly been a great year for me
@Awc123awc, congrats. You know if anyone is hiring mechanical/robotics engineers? I'm currently looking.
@McZanderful, sorry this is late but not that I’m aware of, I’m out in the mountains of VA so there’s not much around me other than my company
I've only filled 20 random cars with bees this month.
@Doctor Bees, Only? Sir you're doing a great service to those beeless cars
Im making a person, have a wonderful husband, and I have a job. It ain't much but it's honest work
@Nekozombie, congratulations to you and your hubby, best of luck with your little one!
@DaSchlappah, Thanks friend :)
I have a lack of social skills and back before me and my wife got serious i was inadvertently flirting with her sister. And she was flirting back which is a problem as she was a minor. My wife's family were sure we were dating on the side but we were just obsessed with the same stuff. Anime, videogames, music and my wife had no interest in it so I bonded with her sister a bit too much and their mother had a fit about it. Neither of us could figure out why. Looking back now. I see everything I was doing as wrong.
@daily joke, wow...
@daily joke, This didn't seem like a joke at all...
I went camping for the first time this weekend. I really enjoyed it
Check out my writing YouTube channel Pen & Sword that I animate and record myself. Took a break from making episodes to work full time but new ones are coming out soon!
@ShogunDamon, I’m very impressed
I've recently gotten into Locksport and I picked my first yellow belt lock, which is not very high on the ladder but it is a personal best.
@No Lollygagging, how’d you get into locksport, because I’ve been thinking about it but always confuse myself.
@KingSlooooth22, I watched a bunch of Lock Picking Lawyer vids on YouTube and thought I could probably do that so I bought a set of picks and a few locks and practiced! It's really satisfying, you should check the laws in your state though, its a crime to own lockpicks in Ohio and a few others I think. If you happen to live in Colorado you're good though, I looked it up.
@No Lollygagging, thank you for that I now know where I can start.
@KingSlooooth22, sure thing! r/lockpicking on Reddit is a great source too, and I would look at Sparrows and Peterson for picks. I myself got the Sparrows Tuxedo set and its pretty nice, but no handles.
Moved from the city to a small town. Got married to the girl of my dreams had three kids and ended up making alot more money in this small town for the same type of work than the city and my house cost half as much wich made me a ridicules amount of equity... I feel like the last 4 years have been a dream

I have a pretty sweet vintage Pokémon card collection
@YoYoMango, that’s still good!
@YoYoMango, I sold my original collection when I was kid, got about 150 bucks for everything.
@YoYoMango, that's cool af bromigo
Fine ill bite, after being laid off due to covid "budget cuts" (was a sysadmin so I could have worked from home but ok) I took the time to learn cad modeling with blender. Been going really well and have entered a few contest. Not planning on placing but won't know if I dont try.
I donated a good bit of toys to shriners children hospital last christmas. Gonna do the same again this year.
I survived a really awful divorce that messed with me badly instead of ending my life i was able to push forward
@JoeExotic, good luck man!
I finally managed to work up the courage to ask for help in a class I’ve been struggling with. I’ve always had a really hard time acknowledging when I can’t do something alone, and it’s caused a lot of problems for me in the past
@Langenator, good on you. You control how much you get out of your education. Glad you are able to realize you needed help. Its a life skill many lack.
A little over a year ago I started an Instagram page to review beard products and spread positivity. I have been posting a review every Friday and for the past month it’s been every Tuesday and Friday due to the success of the page more and more companies are reaching out to me and requesting reviews. If you’re interested my page is @Messy_Beard_Reviews if not no worries! Feel free to message me with any questions or anything!
@vonwulf337, oh also I forgot to mention I’m doing a beard oil giveaway and the deadline closes on Halloween so if you’re interested, go check it out!
*me who can’t grow a decent beard*
Hey congrats on your success. Sounds pretty cool
@seeUpee, Have you tried taking biotin and collagen? I have fine hair that's not great but I started taking gelatin and bone broth and it really helped and now Im taking Neocell supplements and I have nice hair now and it helped my bad knees too. I assume it would help with facial hair as well?
@Nekozombie, I have tried biotin and collagen for years but nothing... will just not connect. Could go see a hair growth specialist but at that point I’m like nhaaaaa.
@seeUpee, I feel you fam sometimes it's just too much work for too little reward
@seeUpee, out of curiosity how long have you gone without shaving?
@vonwulf337, shave every other day. Have gone over a month and a half with out shaving just to see if I can comb it over or something. My family just all got together and told me to shave it cuz it looked terrible
@seeUpee, I'm the same way. I've gone about a year without shaving my face, and beard is still terrible. It's got a little bit of length, maybe 4 or 5 inches, but it's nowhere near as full as I'd like it. Seriously considering chopping it off because I'm pretty sure whatever ugliness my beard is covering up is not as bad as the beard itself. Lol.
@seeUpee, that’s probably like the number one reason why guys shave their beards. Family and friends are too quick to judge. Mine was pretty ugly for about two months but it was worth it! You just need the proper routine and products.
@Doctor Yak, do you use products in it?
@vonwulf337, nah, I'm too lazy and cheap.
@Doctor Yak, that’s fair. It does make all the difference though. If you ever want to know a good brand for your skin type, let me know. I’ve tried at least 60+ companies.
I made my first app a couple years ago but slacked off and kind of gave up. I’ve recently picked it back up and it’s almost ready to publish again. It’s just a simple game but it’s really fun and I’m proud of it. I’ll comeback and post the link when it’s out!
@Gonoopnoop, remind me!
I made it through 2020 as my first year running a grassroots sports club
Taking online art classes in hopes of being a comic. Worst case scenario i just get better at drawing and have a fun hobby
I quit my swanky full time job to run my business full time during the middle of a pandemic. So far I’ve been able to pay my bills and even walk away with a few extra bucks.
@ImNotRacistBut, what is your business?
@vonwulf337, I offer CAD design, 3D printing, and CNC machining services 👍🏻
@ImNotRacistBut, nice! I hope it goes well!
I've been trying to get better at producing music as a hobby for a year and a half. I don't have much on there, but if you wanna check out some of my work, my soundcloud is CDubbedOfficial.
@HonestAbe, so far I think I like Grain the most.
I just got back from a five week long volunteer program in Puerto Rico working on a conservation project. Before that I always hated doing yard work or any type of physical labor. But going on this trip has really showed me the discipline of hard work and has also made me realize just how much work goes into conservation. While I don't consider myself an environmentalist I do think it's important to take care of the natural world, and I love being able to experience nature. I've now looked at doing similar programs back home as well as offering my time for anything else that's important. Next month I'm considering becoming a sort of park ambassador for nature trails in my city, and the week before thanksgiving there's going to be a mobile food pickup drive for low-income veterans in the area that I want to volunteer for.
Now that I've been hard at work for more than a month I want to keep my drive for that going by helping out wherever I can.
@Sexy Homunculus, pr is a beautiful island. I hate the government there and most of the ppl. I lived there and know the real PR. Glad you helped take care of it.
@Sexy Homunculus, dude that’s incredible to hear!
@Sexy Homunculus, nice!
Chansey didn’t beat up any Pokémon today!
I do a flow art called gloving, its basically wiggling ur fingers with led lights to songs, ive been doing it for abt 3-4 yrs and I post some of the vids at @k_nomenon on insta
@a bannana on crack, very interesting!
@vonwulf337, thanks my guy I appreciate it!
@a bannana on crack, those videos are pretty dope.
I just recently got out of a tough spot with the law and I have started to be more upbeat when I’m teaching martial arts, making the whole experience better for me and my students.
@KingSlooooth22, good job!
Just got married
@phxking460, congratulations! My wedding was cancelled because of COVID. And graduation. But I’m happy for you!
Recently met someone awesome after not dating for over a year. So far so great!
I recently started streaming! Come check me out at twitch.tv/TheN7Monk ! I plan on playing a wide variety of games on there, but right now I’m playing a lot of Smite and Injustice 2 (and I’m actually really good at both) and Xenoblade
Been doing well at my new job
@longleafzarathrustra, always good to hear!
I know its nothing interesting, but I've felt for the last year or two that I would have fun with making a YouTube or twitch channel. I've only streamed a handful of times and social anxiety makes me nervous to do so, and I havent made a youtube channel, but I've made a few music videos using some clips I had and I had a blast doing so (apart from the computer I was using was not ideal).
@Arealchocolatechip, that’s very interesting, and I myself am interested in how I can come across such creativity.
I mooned Donald Trump’s motorcade when they drove past my apartment building a few days ago
I'm working on a virtual nightclub/entertainment venue for my quarantine project which will help me progress my career in themed entertainment and creative design.
