  1. I think getting angry about things is okay. How you deal with your anger is something different. If you percieve that someone is being condescending towards you, and you're not sure, you can always ask them what they mean. If you feel like they are talking to you like a child, then let them know that you feel like they are talking to you like a child. As for thinking about yourself, I think its just that time in your life where it's important to focus on yourself, nothing really wrong with that. It's the time where you'll be picking a career, or attending school, or traveling to new places. Raising your IQ, well, IQ means nothing. If you want to smarten up about current events, try reading the news paper, or find a few blogs, or news portals. At the risk of being off topic, lets practice: What's your opinion on the current War in Iraq?
  2. Ouch. What you're asking for isn't much indeed. I also understand the need for spending QT together. Sadly there isn't much of a solution here. It's really either that you accept the situation for what it is (and no fault to you, if you can't--I know I couldn't) or you explain in the simplest of terms: He needs to make this relationship a priority, or your out the door. It's not that you're giving him an ultimatum; you're just letting him have the chance to correct things. Otherwise, it's splitsville. I can imagine this is easier said than done, but it doesn't take much of an imagination to see that things aren't going to change.
  3. I can understand where you're coming from. It's not so much that he's popular, but that he's not really making any time to see you. Have you talked to him about this? If you could have 100% control of the situation, what would you have him do? And, what would be a fair compromise?
  4. A majority of the office jobs out there typically look for a college education. If you want to get into an office environment with a degree, you will likely have to work your way up. My mom (with no college education)( started as a copy-clerk and eventually worked her way up to receptionist/front-desk. It doesn't seem like all that glamorous of a job, but that sort of is indicative of what opportunities having a college presents you.
  5. My understanding is that when someone asks that, what they're really looking for is validation. Sometimes looking for validation is okay, so I'm okay with giving it. They might be asking "Do you still find me beautiful?"
  6. Update: I tendered my resignation. I gave them one weeks notice. Fudge'm if that aint enuff.
  7. How many of you guys have heard this: "Does this outfit make me look fat?"
  8. When I left my previous employer, I gave them 2 weeks. The difference though, is my new employer wants me to start working asap. And considering the substantial raise in pay they offered me, I'm more apt to listen to them. Any smart candidate would tell a potential employer the circumstances with which you left former employers. But, since I like people to take my advice, I will take yours with a comprimise. I will give them *1* week notice for decentcy, and take 1.5 weeks of time off for myself.
  9. In all honesty I never ever ever ever want to work for the people who run my company again. If I find myself later in life in a position to be hired by them I'd rather not.
  10. Haha Jayar. Yeah I was telling my gf the same thing last night. That she needs to say things as directly as possible because I'm a guy, adn I'm dumb. I need things to be spelled out to me. For instance, she said "Oh you don't need to send me flowers for valentines day." So I said "Think carefully about what you're saying. To me, that says I will never ever ever ever ever send you flowers for v-day. Is that what you want?" "No. Send me flowers."
  11. Thats quite a generalization. I wonder if it's because women are taught *not* to be direct with their feelings, in part because of the sexism that still exists in the world. That, a womens needs aren't as important as a mans, thereforeeee she has no right to express her desires bluntly. Of course that's all BS.
