I know I sound like a ****, I get what you're saying. It's nice getting away from the ridicule sometimes. But there needs to be a level of responsibility here.

Maybe we should all build each other up instead of enabling each other's toxic behavior.
Calling people out for their so-called "toxic" behavior and trying to hold them accountable for the actions you think are a negative influence in their lives sounds similar to armchair psychiatry imo. If you read the site rules that is clearly stated. Support people through their difficult times and offer advice, okay...but no user has the right to play the role of judge and jury in another users life. No one should create an account to play "superhero" with others lives in my honest opinion.

I bought my first stocks today..I had a few thousand laying around so I figured id go ahead and invest all of it instead of just letting it sit there.

I still have a lot to learn about equity trading but iv got the basics down. one of the shares I bought in particular was SLIGHTLY on a whim but I think it might be promising in the future. it was amazon. they're at around $993 per share currently and i dont for-see them going way down anytime soon so its at LEAST a good place to let that money sit for a while..on the contrary, I think amazon shares will go way UP once they branch out into delivering medications(they'll be competing with walgreens and CVS though) ....anyway , all the people bought amazon shares in 1997-98 have REALLY benefited from that at this point



that being said though, if a lot of THOSE people start selling of their amazon shares and the price even STARTS to go way down I'm going to pull out and then buy back in when it gets really low....but i dub thats going to happen.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/...ine/101837676/



all in all though, the money that I invested was just cash I had laying around that I dont really give a sh!t about. I dont think ill take any big losses but even if I do, fvck it. you live and learn.

I dont really have much going on in my life right now except for my financial situation ...but that doesnt even compare to having close friends and someone to love you......there are different types of currency in life I guess.






: /


I think maybe if I can get rich then i'll be able to keep permanent friends in my life and finally get married/ have kids..like ill finally be WORTH something.....im not trying to get rich overnight but i mean eventually I want to have that kind of money and still be relatively young.


anyway I'm going to be so tired at work tomorrow if i can't get to sleep....hope I dont get my throat slashed with a toothbrush shank or some sh!t...rofl

Just keep in mind that money can't buy you happiness.

Just another wasted (sun)day
But acknowledgement is the first step i say
The second step might be to pray
To a made-up deitay
But pray for what? Who can say?

^ Oh I believe it can!!

I think only people who have experienced real poverty for many years can be happy by just having enough money to not have to continually worry about paying the rent, being able to afford enough food for the week, not having to repair/hand sew the worn tears in your underwear because the cost of new underwear could mean missed food.

What money can't buy is true friendship or true love.

I wouldn't mind dieing alone, somewhere surrounded by nature. I am perhaps 5-10 years away from people able to comfortably withdraw from people. It is my dream, being around people makes me unwell.

I hate that I have to miss the stock market open tomorrow because is going to go up past the price I wanted to buy at early in the morning . the company iv got my eye on just got FDA approval for a new opioid dependance medication . usually while a pharmaceutical company is waiting for approval on a new drug, a lot of shareholders will back out just in case it doesnt get approved and the price per share will go way down because of it.

by 9:30 tomorrow morning those share holders will be buying back in and riding the wave to higher share prices ...but unfortunately I won't be one of them because ill be at work baby sitting a bunch of 20-something year olds -_-


the case manger has her own office though and she goes on Facebook in the morning when she's not busy...I bet she could so easily trade equities right there on her computer .....DAMN I wish I had my own office!

^And that is absolutely fine, AtTheGates.
Sadly in this socially engineered society we are forced to live in today, the situation you just described is quite common and unavoidable.
We all do what we have to survive. Good luck with your life goals, AtTheGates. : )

So, about 8 weeks ago I submitted a saliva sample to get genetic testing via Ancestry and today, I got my results which were a bit surprising, but really cool. Attached are my results

That's cool, I need to do that.

What surprised you the most with the results?

I think what surprised me most was that I'm Scandinavian and that I'm not more Italian. Also, that I am 5% European Jewish. There was some more info that I didn't screen shot - just things that were 1 or 2%. Turns out that I am 2% Iberian Peninsula (Spain/Portugal) and less than 1% Finland/Northwest Russia lol.

I really like Ancestry, but am a bit disappointed that they just give you regions of where you're from - they're not super specific. Like, for instance, Great Britain includes Scotland/Wales in the countries that cover that area, but Scotland/Wales are also included in Ireland, so I'm not sure which I'm more of.

There's one thing i find more boring than politics. And that's the stockmarket. Thankfully i don't have to be involved in either.

That's really bizarre to me - everyone should know where they come from. Since you don't know anything, it might actually be more fun diving into your ancestry.

All I know is that I'm black. But as to how much of me are other things or exactly what country in Africa we came from I don't know. Yeah I'm definitely gonna try it if my new job pans out.
