2020.11.10 05:49 Pigletbrawlr I sent an email to one of my friends' teachers, his response as well

To Mr. (Placeholder), I am quite confused as to why my sons are failing? It would seem that to my knowledge they have been keeping up with their work? I see them being very studious every day. I restrict Xbox access to only four hours a day, as well as sleeping privileges from 12 am – 4 am. I have seen a lot of big media suggest that they need more sleep, but they function fine when the Dayquil kicks in. Due to my strict Christian policies as a Mother they haven’t had dinner in four weeks due to their “F”. I am very proud of them and would like to know what you are doing to make my students fail? I do not mean to be aggressive, I know you must work hard as a teacher with as many colored students as there are in (city name), but your failure to prepare my kids for a Missionary trip to Nicaragua is a blight on America that will be ratified.

Right... I know who this is. Do the work, follow instructions... have faith. What we're doing is hard.
Take a look again at grades tonight: Should be much better.
Not a very Christian approach here... but, ok.. I understand your frustration. Tough on me too. With so many who can't write, bring in quotations, are seriously depressed, and on and on--it's no wonder we're going through up's and down's with grades. Keep in mind I offered to write the personal narrative and make the 2 ePortfolio pages for my students who failed last semester if they came in for an hour. NOT ONE came in. Your sons could have. Oh, that's right--you got a good grade, didn't you? (Again, I know who this is...)
I suppose I could just give As and Bs to everyone instead of holding the line--but then I wouldn't be preparing your "sons."
I'll try to do better.
Good news. I got permission to scrap the Senior Capstone project. Hope that helps everyone.
Ratified? Word choice?
Hmm... let me see: "colored"?
Wow... be very careful. If this goes any further--they will track you down after I report it.
Keep the faith. This is very hard to do--write, and write well. I'll help you. You know that. If I don't have high expectations for your... and teach you... you won't be ready for college.
Thanks for the feedback. Truly, I'll try to do better. If you have any suggestions, I'm all ears. Well, and I do have a big nose.

--Mr. C

2020.10.28 05:27 toinydancer99 Plans for spring semester

Hey all. I’m a 4th year student at UVA but I changed majors late and added a second major and a minor so I have to take an extra semester’s worth of classes. I did Fall and Spring term last year, 13 credits over 12 weeks of summer school this year, and I’m doing 14 credits this semester. My parents recognized how stressed I am and they suggested I take the spring off since I’m burnt out and it looks like the spring will be much like this fall (no real college experience and extra stress). I’m totally on board with that idea and I’d actually been thinking about it for a while. My parents have really differing opinions on what I should do. My dad is fine with me traveling in Europe for a couple months while my mom wants me to move back to Nicaragua and help her run a school. It’s supposed to be a break for me so I don’t see any sense in working 24/7 but I also don’t want to just take a 6 month vacation. Any suggestions on what I should do will be helpful. I’m hoping to get out of Charlottesville and possibly even the US so that I can do something enriching but also not too stressful.

2020.07.18 00:54 carabinerexchange I’m sick of my fucking debt

Hi! And first off, I did read the rules but I don’t have a base article I’m ranting about. It’s just my life. Read on please :)
I graduated college in 2014 at 24 years old with $100,000 in student loan debt - and about $10k in credit card debt (that’s another story), so $110,000. As I’m writing this, it’s mid 2020 and, after 6 years of monthly payments towards my student loans and credit cards, I am sitting here, at 30 years old, with $98,000 in debt (with less than $1,000 in credit debt) - and that’s not a typo. Sorry for any future jumbling around, this was a chaotic thought and I had to get it down.
Sooooo, I don’t complain about a lot, but I do when it comes to student loans - the insanely high interest levels and how few choices I have with my own debt. I can acknowledge a lot of the debt I’ve accrued has been my doing. For one: tuition, room and board, plus a meal plan and cost of books/materials for each semester adds up. I left out a lot of normal costs too, not the point. Part of where I went wrong is I didn’t apply for scholarships for many reasons. Laziness, undenot qualified, too much effort for a small chance at a small amount of money, etc. Sure, if I wanted to do a few hours or research on which scholarships I could apply for, I may have found one or a small handful worthwhile. But, unfortunately I didn’t - I was a lot more naive in college and kept taking trips because “I’ll figure it out later, I’m going to Nicaragua!”. No one really tried to get me to think about my future besides my parents. Wish I would have tried a bit harder, but you’re so optimistic in college that you imagine, no matter what, you’re going to land an incredible job if you work hard enough, so you shrug off any unsolicited advice. College can be stressful! With all the adulting you have to do, decisions to be made, and a lot of financial advice you may or may not understand, among hundreds of other new, and often daunting tasks or events.
Nicaragua was one study abroad (and the cheapest trip offered) that I took that actually counted towards my required credit hours. My trip to Nicaragua, and the other study abroad trips to Tanzania and Europe, all had their own profound impacts on my life. They all stirred my wanderlust. All of my trips, and college itself, led me to be where I am, but not so much with the educational side of college - but 98% of who I am being shaped by my social life in college. I’m happy with where I am now, overall, and actually proud of how I was able to handle my crippling debt, but early in life I was told college will get me a job, so I worked my butt off to get a career I could be proud of. I went to college initially because that’s what I was told to do. Well, I haven’t been able to get a career or any jobs even remotely related to my degree since graduating, aside from one 4-month temp job. Before graduating, you naturally look for work. Jobs in my field (environmental science) were offering entry level salary at $8-10/hr, but my bills (even in Wisconsin, where I went to college and where it’s generally cheap to live in comparison to the rest of the country) still wouldn’t allow for that income without living paycheck to paycheck. I couldn’t save any money making $10/hr, plus my student loans only had 6 months of deferment before I had to start paying those back. I was scared knowing I was $100,000 in debt and didn’t have a job worth a damn. I wasn’t qualified for anything in my field besides a laboratory technician job - the $8-10/hr I mentioned earlier. I sort of gave up looking for something in my field because the non-degree jobs I kept jumping around to (mostly trying to network my way to somewhere I wanted) were paying my bills and then some, comfortably enough, but not enough to flourish. So I took other career pathways, and eventually I got a job in my field! That was 4 months of temporary work as I was quite literally hired “as a body” to fill in for a biologist on seasonal leave. I knew a friend who knew I’d be interested, so I got the job that way. It was a fun couple months, and I was really looking forward to the next open job opportunity/career move, but nothing in the entire parks and wildlife department was open to transfer to. After the employee returned, I was let go. Back to finding something that would cover bills while searching for something I actually wanted to do.
I kept jumping from work place to work place, often working up to 3 jobs at a time and around 90 hours a week, but those were all dead end for me. Uninteresting and couldn’t keep my interest or attention for long enough. I stuck with them until something else came up. They were paying just enough - and I mean JUST enough - to cover my monthly expenses. Shit, I couldn’t handle having a kid right then. There’s no way I could have afforded that! So at this point, I’m working like a maniac and still hardly making ends meet. I’ve basically given up a lot of recreational spending or “fun money” recently so my bank account could build, filling a lot of my time with working, but new and unexpected bills and expenses pop up and I felt like I could never catch up.
My student loan bills are around $750/mo. COVID-19 put all student loans on a temporary freeze, but I know I’m going to have to start repaying them again in the next few months, and the freeze may raise the monthly price by $20/ea, who knows. My normal, pre-COVID income is enough to pay my bills and have a teeny tiny bit of fun money to spend. I’m just saying, with my student loans being so ridiculous and seemingly endless, I almost feel as if it’ll never be the right time to buy a house, have a pet, start a family, get a new car, live with no credit card debt, and be able to travel home for the holidays, to visit my family. When will I be ready to try and settle down?! I’m honestly not dating around a lot because I’m worried that a $100 restaurant bill will throw a loop in my finances. It’s next to impossible with my insurmountable debt to maintain a relationship. I just wish my student loans were gone or a significant chunk of it was paid because I know my money can be used in much better ways. If I didn’t have student loans, I’d consider myself rich (I’m making $42,000 a year and I’m living in Tennessee now). I would have an extra $750 in my account every month, can you imagine the change in my life if that were a thing?? I would be able to plan my finances to afford a house payment and buy a new car. Shit, I could probably even buy a cheap motorcycle and get back on the open road, ride like I used to. I had to sell my previous bike cuz I couldn’t afford rent and student loans while living in Colorado.
So here’s where I wrap it up. How the fuck can I get $100,000 to pay off my crippling debt? I’ve been working my booty off trying to get ahead, but I can’t pull much further ahead than I’ve made it while on the path I’m on. I have plans to open a business, but the thought of doubling or tripling my current debt with uncertainties makes me want to vomit. Can’t someone with some considerably infinite wealth like Jeff Bezos help a young man out?! I’m confident that there are people that are literally having trouble finding ways to blow their money. They can’t spend it fast enough. Well, shit, I’d be so fucking grateful for someone to give me a wink of their fortune so I can live a debt free life. Can you pay my loans for me so I can start contributing to society and paying forth the debts I can control? I want a family and a house, and I’m 30, but I’m scared I can’t afford it and I’ll fail and be in even more debt. Yea, that seems lazy, but if you’re worth $100,000,000, the interest you’d earn on that each month would be enough to pay off my loans plus buy you a new house. You wouldn’t even know it was gone!! On a side note - I strive to be wealthy so I can help the people who deserve it. I love tipping people when service is great, because I’ve lived and worked in the service industry for a while now, but I can’t afford to tip how I want to. I want to give out $100+ tips to those who deserve it without worrying if I’m going to be able to pay rent or not. God damn this shit is fucked up, I just want to contribute to society in a way that’s empowering, can someone help me out?!
TL:DR Student loans are crippling, I feel like I can’t get ahead of the game at 30 years old, and I’m sick of paying hundreds a month to see very little progress in paying down my student loans. Please send someone of Jeff Bezos’s wealth status to cut me a check to pay off my student loans. He won’t miss it anyways. Many thanks!

2020.05.26 21:43 coolbreeze1990 That time I took acid in Costa Rica

I’m getting a real kick out of telling you guys my dumb drug stories right now. I’ve posted 3 trip reports recently - yep, the bathtub….
How about I drop another fun trip report on you guys?
Let’s go with the time I dropped acid in Costa Rica.
It was the spring break of my junior year in college. I was studying biology abroad for a semester in Costa Rica. I wanted to be an ethnobotanist or maybe some kind of cultural anthropologist. I ended up getting my undergrad in Anthropology with a minor in Biology.
Anyways - “studying” in this context is a strong word. I got drunk every other night with my fellow gringo students and travelled around the country for a semester. Before I left for Costa Rica, I sourced an almost empty acid vial. A little fresh breath dropper with acid caked on the inside walls. We’d buy them, cut em open, take a lick or two, and be out of our heads for the day. I brought the dropper with me but hadn’t used it all semester. I was too busy making new friends and exploring to even bother with it.
Now it was spring break. Most of my friends were headed up to Nicaragua for the week with the study abroad program on their official spring break trip. I decided it was time for a solo trip and took the bus south to Panama instead.
I rode a bus all day, from the Pacific side to the Caribbean side, then south toward the border. I would have to catch another bus to take me across, a ride which would take a little over an hour. Perfect timing I guess? I drop the acid and it just starts to kick in as I wait on the beach for the bus to take me across the border.
I hopped on the bus and sat in silence as I watched the clouds morph into elephants. Yep elephants … on acid. Real original.
I made it across the border where I had to catch another bus to get to Bocas del Toro, an island off the coast maybe an hour from the crossing. An aggressive big scary taxi driver told me the last bus to Bocas had just left and I’d have to pay him life $40 to get there if I wanted to make it that night - the bus would have cost like $3 if I remember all this right. I felt ripped off. I felt sketched out. But I wanted to get there so….
I got in his sketchy van and we drove in silence for what seemed like too long. It seemed like we should definitely be there by now. I’m getting bad vibes from this guy. (Edit: Oh yeah, I saw the last bus heading out just as my van was heading out. But it was too late then. My fate was sealed.)
Wait a second - are we driving inland? or toward the coast? I think we’re driving inland! Why are we driving inland??!! This guy is going to kill me. That’s it. He’s going to kill me or take me hostage for ransom. Fucking awesome. I’m on a head full of acid (I’d estimate like 400 mics I guess) and certainly can’t do anything to defend myself. I’m at this guy’s mercy. Fuck fuck fuck.
Oh there’s the beach!
A few of my gringo friends from Costa Rica had made it down to Bocas the day before. I didn’t know how the hell I was going to find them and had no way to contact them. Or they wouldn’t answer or something. But one of them posted a picture of the hotel they were staying at on facebook. I showed the picture to the very first person I saw, and he pointed me in the right direction. I walked in just as my friends were headed down the stairs out for a walk. Reunited and it felt so good!
All was well. The end.

Edit: TLDR:
Dropped acid at the Costa Rica/ Panama border crossing. Thought i was going to be murdered by a taxi driver. All was fine in the end.

2020.04.06 23:52 pieisgiood876 Introducing recruitable squadmates

Introducing recruitable squadmates

I thought it would be interesting to make a mockup of what it would be like if Ubisoft incorporated squadmates into the game and released them as DLC in a similar manner to operators in Rainbow Six: Siege. Here is the first sequence, "Greenstone Survivors."

CWO Anna Martinez, SOAR Pilot
“If you can’t think on your feet, you die. If you can’t think in the air, your team dies too.”
Name: Anna Martinez
Rank: Chief Warrant Officer Two
Faction: United States
Organization: 160th SOAR (A)
Position: Army Aviator
Birthplace: Laredo, Texas
Date of Birth: 08/31/1994 (29)
Intelligent, perceptive, and uncannily resourceful, Anna Martinez would have been an exceptional lawyer had she not chosen Army life. Growing up in a single-parent household, her mother’s job as an attorney meant Anna was largely self-raising. Later she realized that law school was more of a grab for parental attention than a serious passion and took the unusual step of joining the Army at 23. Quickly finding herself on a track towards aviation, she excelled in flight school with a natural feel for flying, and later was assigned to Task Force Brown, the elite 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment.
Anna distinguished herself during a training mission gone awry when her MH-60 was brought down in severe weather on the border with Norway and Russia. The only uninjured crewmember, she risked her life to destroy documents and sensitive material before leading an arriving Spetsnaz unit away from her crew, allowing them to reach the border safely. Successfully escaping and evading for two weeks until a Norwegian FSK team extracted her, she made waves in the JSOC community, and earned the begrudging respect of the Bodark commander tasked with capturing her.
A perfect candidate for Ghost aviation support, Anna Martinez’s chopper was brought down with the rest of the insertion forces during the ill-fated Operation: Greenstone. Once again grounded, she was able to escape encircling Sentinel and linked up with the only other survivor from her bird, heavy-weapons specialist SFC Paul Fitzpatrick. After another bout of improvisation, the duo later conducted a daring raid on the Arrow Testing Zone in an event the Wolves still refer to as “Black Sunday.” Utilizing a captured Sentinel MH-6 Little Bird and a jury-rigged oil drum, Anna evaded heavy air defenses to dive-bomb the Wolves’ flight deck with a precision napalm attack, returning on a second pass for Paul to rake the base with grenades and machine gun fire. By the time the smoke was clear, a platoon of Walker’s finest men was dead, and six Azrael drones lay blazing in the hangar.
With the drone swarm preventing Anna from extracting the survivors, she knows her days are likely numbered, but in the meantime, she plans on putting her skills as a pilot to good use.

Paul Fitzpatrick, Ghost Heavy Weapons Specialist
“A little guitar there, painting here, hell I’m a qualified sushi chef. Oh and I love blowing shit up. Point is, you don’t mix your hobbies.”
Name: Paul Fitzpatrick
Rank: Sergeant First Class
Faction: United States
Organization: 5th SFG(Ghost Recon) (Active), 10th SFG(A) (Formerly)
Position: Heavy weapons specialist
Birthplace: Warren, Rhode Island.
Date of Birth: 10/04/1988 (35)
Raised in a loving, if nontraditional east coast household, Paul was the only child of his common-union parents. Musicians by trade, he toured with them frequently across the country, developing both a sense of adventure and a laundry list of eccentric interests. Wanting to travel but short on cash, Paul joined the Army after two delinquent semesters of community college and found a stabilizing influence that had so far been absent from his life. Initially serving in the infantry, he gained a reputation for boisterousness and improvisation that helped see his unit through two deployments to Iraq. Returning stateside and still longing to travel, Paul tried out for special forces and passed selection, putting his varied skills and worldly knowledge to practical application.
Paul served with distinction as his unit deployed to Syria and was awarded the Silver Star for valor for his actions during an assault on a Daesh compound in ar-Raqqah. Aiding a platoon of Kurdish soldiers, his team became caught in the middle of a pitched three-way fight between rebel militia, Daesh fighters, and a Syrian army unit. Running low on ammunition, Paul attempted to use a bundle of signal flares to set off a derelict petrol tanker, an act so dangerous and stunning all three factions paused firing at him. Unable to get the tanker to light, he relieved a Daesh gunner of his PKM and used his tracer rounds to finish the job, blasting a gap in the melee large enough for his allies to exfiltrate.
After this deployment, he was invited to try out for Delta Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group – Ghost Recon. Again passing selection, Paul continued on as a heavy weapons specialist in Nicaragua, Cuba, and the Korean peninsula, before being tasked for the doomed Operation: Greenstone. Wounded but still retaining his equipment after the attack, Paul managed to gain a superior position and hold off an array of Sentinel forces until a distraction by fellow survivor Anna Martinez allowed him to disengage. The squad of Wolves that captured his position was surprised to learn they were engaging one man, not an intact fireteam as they had believed.
Teaming up with Anna, he participated in the infamous “Black Sunday” raid on the Arrow Testing Zone, among others. Now healed up and ready to fight, Paul wonders if his desire to travel has come back to haunt him, but that won’t stop him from doing what he does best: blasting.

2019.11.07 06:01 CherryRainbowBoom Emotionally Wrecked

I feel like emotions are invalid reasons to continue my college assignments.
My (20f) mother (51) has been recently seen by the doctor. She has a sign of breast cancer. Luckily, it's on a very early stage n hasn't really gotten into the 1st stage.
She got really emotional, since she had another form of cancer. Specifically, colon cancer. And that has been since removed. But her thoughts were a life or death situation in mind.
Going to church wasn't so bad. But as time went on I didn't felt the need to go. My mother is religious, Christian. We attended a bilingual church every Sunday morning. Two pastors who were married would translate English and Spanish. Recently, my pastor died from pancreas cancer. I didn't attend her funeral.
But usually when my bf picks me up from my house to go to his. I pass by the church and a cemetery. Which made me feel uncomfortable. And personally, I believe it's been a month already and I step forward into the church knowing that my pastor died. Altho I never talked to her personally really. I just can't. And I don't think I want to continue going to church becuz I feel more connected to spirituality than Christianity.
After my pastor died that's when my mother had seen the doc to check her breast. She's divorced. Has a shitty bf that she complains about. Not giving her enough affection as a man. She's just with him for the small amount of money that he offers her to help pay the bills. My dad pays for child support.
My mom has done well being a single mother and getting this far for not knowing any English herself. She has made many good accomplishments.
Just recently, we discovered that my younger sister (14) was cutting herself. My mom got really mad. As my mother went downstairs I couldn't help but cry and hold my sister n told her that I was sorry for making her feel like shit. That I do love her. She said the reason she did it was becuz she felt like mom didn't love her. She told me sincerely that she has been doing so for a year now. And has been doing it with the razor of a sharpener. And the only other person she told was her best friend. I've taken her razor away.
My mom reacted very angrily bcuz her ex bf who is now 30-35 I believe. Did this before saying that she didn't love him. My mom was really insistent for my sister to tell her the 'real' reason she didn't. Bcuz last night before we knew she cut herself. She was hanging with her friends who were hanging out across the street at night. Mom noticed that they all headed into a family car van with no lights on. So my mom stepped out n told her to get inside. Sister was hanging with friends like an hour.
So my mom believed it was becuz she didn't let her hang with friends. She wanted her to talk 'the truth' despite her telling her. My mom got really mad n threatened to hit her if she didn't tell her. And she kept going on saying how she's wasting her time.
My mom has told her before that she wasn't suppose to be born. That she could have had an abortion but she didn't. My mom had an affair with my dad becuz he pressured her to find another man. Degrading her as a woman. Both my parents hadn't had a good family history and I believe they both have somewhat of a toxic approach. From the build up of stress over time.
She says that to her becuz of the amount of time she hangs out with her dad. Usually choosing to be in his company over her. Also she gets to see her cousins. She has more freedom. While my mom is strict.
I've been procrastinating over college assignments. My major is psychology and honestly.. doubting if I could even be good in this field. If I can't help my own family or my own emotions dealing with my issues. How can I help someone else instead?..
I don't know what to do with myself. Feeling like a mess coming home every day having no desire to do my assignments or socializing with my mother n sister.
I had an older sister(30) who is alright. Knows about all this n has sided with my mom for thinking that it was unnecessary for our younger sister to cut herself. Since we have been given everything. Food, water and shelter. Quoting my mom in away. But I feel like despite having all the needs met. Our emotions are just as important than what we have.
My mom has also said that she had no emotional support when she got divorced and when her dad left her n her Bros and sisters to starve. That she pushed through all that. And there was no reason for her to cut herself. She grew up in Nicaragua. And married my dad here in the US. They have a different mindset over there. She was raised differently.
My mother's bf has done some ugly things to her. He still talks nasty to her n she says that she defends herself everytime. I've ignored him n avoided talking to him for about a year. He has a problem with us too. But my mom tells him to leave them alone since they have their fathers to look up to you. N tells us that we shouldn't care about the arguments that they have.
Honestly, I feel so anxious and stressed about the combination of schoolwork taking 5 classes this semester and home. I'm a shy person maybe introverted too. N it's hard to even give a presentation to a class which I will be doing tomorrow.. luckily, in a group. I just want to feel at peace. I want to leave home. I want to live by myself but I have no idea on how.
My mom says I should be grateful that Im in college becuz of her low income. Cuz without that I wouldn't have it. It really sucks how she's my mom. And genuinely had good characteristics and intentions. But this is another side of her that I frown upon. And have taken a step back from being so close to her bcuz she can be judgemental.
And for my older sister. I love her so much but altho I've told her about most of my feelings. She's kind of like her in a way n I feel like not wanting to tell her about certain things. Usually I would care for her kids since she works part time on the weekend. While her bf works full time all week I believe. In the weekend he sleeps in after the girls(2 and 5/6) are awake most of the time.
I don't mind caring for their kids but I have sacrificed doing study to care for them. And overtime, i just don't want to be responsible for someone else's responsibility. I just can't. I love those kids. But I don't want to feel like it's a chore to care for them. I don't even know how to cook and my mom usually would.
Up to this point I don't know much on how to care for myself becuz my mom hasn't really taught me anything. But now it's my responsibility to teach myself. And I really want to but I can't send to actually feel like it in the house anymore. I can't even change how things are without my mom yelling at me to put things back in its place. N she still tells me how I messed up the basement by reorganizing it. And how I lost her checkbook thing for touching her stuff. All I did was clean n put things back...
I want to move in with my bf(19) Everytime im with him I feel this sense of peace. He has the kindness and genuine heart. And that's what we want to do.
We want to get an apartment together. We would need a good job that can help us get a bit far and Excel from there. He has one but also goes to college. But he isn't too sure if he should continue with his studies. He tells me he will just finish his associate's degree n leave it at that.
As for myself, I've done workstudy at an office so far. It was alright but this semester they decided to not accept any work-study students. Assuming probably bcuz there wasn't really anything for the student to do. N I ended up procrastinating to find another workstudy job. I kept postponing it but I did turn in an application but no one called me back... Now it's close to the end of the semester in December. N it's not worth trying anymore.
I want to leave out my house n do better. Be emotionally and financially stable n happy. I deserve to give myself that at least. I'm willing to put in the work to make that happen but at this moment I'm not really sure what to do with myself.
Whoever, reads this long novel haha. I appreciate you taking the time to read it. Honestly, typing my feeling out feels like a relief. And I feel slightly better than bottling all that in my head.

2019.11.02 15:09 PreMedOtaku How do you explain your upcoming Gap Year in your Application? [Discussion]

Hello everyone! I actually have two questions about this:
1) How do I write about my upcoming gap year in my application for the 2021 cycle? I plan on scribing, shadowing and doing some volunteering but I don’t know how I talk about that in my Application. (The activities section)
2) How do ADCOMS view getting lots of shadowing and clinical experience the semester before you apply? (Spring Semester before 2021 cycle) I’m going to start scribing and ramping up my shadowing next semester (won’t be taking classes) and throughout my gap year.
A little background about me:
The reasoning behind my lack of ECs is because my freshman year I played for my University’s Men’s Basketball team and my grades suffered. After I transferred to a different school I didn’t want to repeat the same mistakes so I really restricted my ECs and focused on my grades.
NOTE* I only gave some background about me so you all would see that I wasn’t completely lacking ECs/ doing nothing but that I didn’t have solid clinical experience.*
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated and thanks in advance!!

2019.09.16 04:22 Pterafractyl Bad reaction to buspirone has derailed my life. Now I'm in a steep depression

A few months ago I started on buspar and it was working great at first. Then the brain zaps started happening when I upped the dose, mostly just annoying. However, as time went on they started getting worse and worse to the point where I was having full blown seizures from them. After a bad one at work I stopped taking them, but too much damage had already been done.
The whole start of this semester was completely fucked by the seizures and brain fog. I spent the first 3 weeks trying desperately to keep up, but I couldn't process anything. It's so bad that I've had to medically withdraw this semester while we figure out what happened with the meds. After years of working so hard for so long, I was finally going to be able to graduate this year. Not anymore.
Now my self-esteem is destroyed, I'm at a nearly psychotic low and I just don't know how to pull myself out of this nose dive. I was so delusional and mean the other night that I made my poor, sweet, amazing partner cry. That was enough to snap me out of it. Seeing their wonderful face full of tears because of the stuff I was saying about myself, just made me feel 100x worse.
To top it all off, today I picked up a newspaper and saw an update on the status of the trial of my friend's murderer. The fucker fled to Nicaragua immediately after killing her. We have been waiting a year and a half for extradition, and still nothing. She deserves justice.
I'm teetering on the edge right now. I'm trying very hard not to slip into the abyss, I just don't know how to keep fighting.

2019.09.09 17:25 DeanDettloff Online Class on Christianity and Marxism

Hey Folks,
I'm teaching an online class called "The Soul of Soulless Conditions" this fall that I thought some of the people here might be interested in. It's through the Institute for Christian Studies. The full course description and syllabus are available online here. Basically, the course goes through some Christians on Marxism and some Marxists on Christianity. It costs ~$130 USD and runs for 13 classes over 14 weeks, so it's around $10/class. You can audit or take the course for credit; it costs the same, but credit participants have some assignments and will be graded. If you're auditing it you can decide how much time you want to commit to it or not, essentially just getting the content you're interested in.
The course goes like this: there's an online message board attached, but every Saturday from noon to 2pm EST we meet. The first hour is a lecture parsing out the material and doing some historical background, the second hour is a general discussion among everyone. The lecture is recorded for folks who can't listen or want to go back to the material later.
Here are some of the highlights from the syllabus:
- What Marx and the first generations of Marxists had to say about Christianity (surprise, it's not all bad!)
- How Chinese Christians adjusted to and in some cases vigorously supported the communist revolution there
- Material from various Marxist tendencies and various Christian traditions
- A look at how different liberation theologies (e.g. Brazil and Nicaragua, in Europe, and US Black liberation theology) relate to Marxism
- What Fidel Castro and a Dominican priest have in common
My hope is that the course will create a conversation among participants that helps us all think together about how Christianity and Marxism have found ways to dialogue together. I ran a course last semester on the history of the Christian Left that had over 50 participants, and it went so well that I was invited to develop this one (several past participants are returning, too). If I get enough participants this time around, the institution will allow me to develop another course expanding on these themes, and hopefully I'll be able to put together an affordable educational context for people interested in exploring the history and theory of Christian radicalism in an environment that tries to hold academic scholarship and activism together to enrich both. Also you can help me pay my rent!
Anyway, sorry for the advertisement, but there aren't a lot of places that collect folks like this one who would be an interested and helpful constituency for the class. It would be really exciting for me to see some of you in the course. If you're interested, email [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) for details. Please let me know if you have any questions! Registrations close this Sunday, 9/15, and the first class is Saturday, 9/14, so make sure to get in touch before then!

2019.02.02 21:42 a-drumming-dog Ways to improve my application for next cycle

Hey guys, super new here and I was wondering if I could get advice about my plan for reapplying this coming cycle.
So I'm a California resident going to school in Texas in my last year of college. I applied this cycle after going through my school's committee letter process knowing there were some weaknesses in my application, and not expecting to hear a whole lot back. Here's a list of schools I applied to,

UT Southwestern
UTSA (Long)
Texas A&M
Texas Tech
Texas Tech at El Paso
UTH (McGovern)
UT Austin (Dell medical)
UC Irvine
UC Davis
UC Riverside
UT Rio Grande

No IIs at all (yet at least I guess there's still time, but I've been rejected from pretty much all but 3 of these schools)

As far as my stats go, I have a 3.6 cumulative GPA and a 3.5 science GPA, 515 MCAT. I've been a part of a volunteer organization at my school since freshmen year, doing about 15-25 hours of volunteer work per semester. I'm involved with my church, going on 2 week long mission trips to south Texas and playing drums on the worship team. As far as shadowing goes I haven't done much. I went on a week-long "medical" mission trip to Nicaragua where I shadowed a few doctors as they just prescribed medicine to people who came to our clinic. I also shadowed a gastroenterologist once for about a day. Haven't done research, the undergrad research positions at my school were very competitive and I applied but couldn't get one. I'm a certified EMT, though I haven't had any experience yet.

My plan to improve my application is mostly this:
-Gain Texas residency and stay in Texas after I graduate this May (being Californian really screwed my chances with the Texas schools, and this would increase them a lot. I'd like to stay here for medical school, as it's way cheaper than going back home)
-Find a job as an EMT and/or working in a hospital to get some patient interaction and clinical experience.
-Shadowing more (finding doctors willing to let me shadow has honestly been really tough, any advice on this would be much appreciated).

Any tips would be helpful! Is there anything more I should do? Maybe someone who's gone through a similar application experience can give some advice. Thanks guys

2018.07.14 21:10 jtknight5 Testimony of a Drug Addict

Per request, here is my testimony:
Background: I am a 21 year old college student living in Virginia, I lead other kids my age in freedom ministry and also lead a men’s group.
My story: I grew up in a “Christian” home, the extent of our families faith was praying before dinner and going to church a few times a month. I believed in “God” and accepted Christ at age 7. Ages 7-15 I moved almost every 3 years due to my dad’s job. My dad was never around, and because he left my mom home and lonely a lot, my mom turned to alcohol to fill the void. So there I was entering sophomore year of High School at a brand new school with an absent dad and an alcoholic mom.
I made friends quickly, especially because I made the Varsity football team as a sophomore. I kinda thought I was the “stuff”. Naturally I hung out with the older, cooler, seniors and juniors. Not having any role models to look up to, I looked up to the guys on the football team, and the best way to impress them was to drink and smoke more than they could. I quickly found this out and it became my go to. Eventually I built up enough of a habit where instead of being at parties doing drugs, I was at home drinking and smoking all alone.
This whole time I was trying to fill this “void” in my soul, and I thought drugs were the answer. When alcohol and weed wasn’t enough, I added cigarettes, dip, pills (adderal/Xanax/etc.), and experimented with everything else. No matter what I tried, whenever I came down from the high, I was left unsatisfied. Once I realized how much money I was spending on drugs, I decided to team up with some buddies and sell so I could do my drugs for free.
Around this same time I met my now girlfriend of 5 years. Simply put, I was a con artist. In front of her I was the stud “Christian” football player who got good grades and took care of her. As soon as I wasn’t in her presence, I was going and getting high. I can’t even count the number of lies and depth of hurt I caused her throughout high school through my double life.
Anyways, I started getting bored of doing drugs because they never left me satisfied. My “good boyfriend” persona thought “hey, how good would I look if I invited my girl on a mission trip, that’ll help her believe I’m a good guy and get her off my back.” A few months later, we were on a mission trip in Nicaragua. It was a great experience, but even then I brought drugs with me..yes..across international borders. The trip was cool and my eyes were opened, but that wasn’t when Christ’s seed was planted.
On the plane ride back to the States, my-now- friend Priscilla felt the Holy Spirit telling her to pray with me and my girlfriend. We had no idea who she was, and again, we had no idea God was active and alive. She leads us in prayer and took us both to a traumatic moment in our life, explaining to us God wants to heal us from the inside out. I went to a memory where my dad had been gone a year overseas, and I (~8yo) was looking at a picture of him in uniform I kept by my bedside. I was balling all night saying “I miss my daddy, daddy come home.” In this prayer, the door to my bedroom opened up, and there was Jesus dressed in SHINING white robes with His arms wide open, and He said “I am your dad, and I have never left you and will never leave you.” I’ll never forget that. That was my first experience with the real and living God. My girlfriend had a similar prayer experience that was just as moving.
We get back to the states, I fall back into drugs, and my girlfriend and I fall away. We both party a lot and see other people, not in a committed way, just in the worldly hookup culture way. She graduates and heads off to school, I decide I’m going to enlist into the Army’s Infantry branch because my life has no other purpose or value, might as well die for my country and fight with a few of my old football teammates who were serving as well. I go through processing and my girl and I link up again a few months before I was to head for basic training. The night before I was going to head out, I couldn’t sleep. I had ignored God for years, but in that moment told God if He wanted me to go the military route, then He would need to make me fall asleep and give me peace. I cried and stayed up all night, not wanting to say bye to my girlfriend and commit to being without her for at least 4 years. I’m 2 hours away from leaving for Georgia for a few months to train, and my girl and mom were seeing me off. I tell the officer in charge I’m not going, he cusses me out, I insist, he dismisses me. My mom immediately calls a college football coach who was interested in me a few months before and gets me enrolled at the school. I go to that school to play football, all my roommates are druggies, I do drugs, don’t study, drop out and go home. I try the community college by my house for a semester but never went to class cause I was busy getting high and selling drugs.
There I was, 19 years old, a full on drug addict who was almost 2 years behind where I should’ve been. I said screw this, I’m going wild. I go wild, more drugs, more partying, more everything. My girl and I were on okay terms, she really kept in touch with me just to make sure I was still alive (we were not dating at this time). One night I drive to a party, drink a lot, pop a few pills, and drive home. I stop a block before my house to smoke a cig and “chill” before seeing my mom when I walked in. I pass out and wake up to a cop knocking on the window. Boom. DUI, 5 grams of weed, paraphernalia, and pills that didn’t have my name on them. 19 years old.
That night in the jail cell, as high and incoherent as I was, this voice started speaking to my soul. No, not “audible” in the external sense, but very clear in the internal sense. The voice was God’s, and He was telling me how much He had given me, friends, family, money, opportunity, and I had thrown it all away because I wanted to do life my way. After some arguing with Him, He finally said, “you’ve tried it your way and you ended up here, why don’t you try it My way?” I said, “Fine. Whatever it takes. Just get me out of this mess.”
When I was released, I reached out to the only woman I knew who knew God, Priscilla, the woman who prayed with my and my girl on the plane a few years back. My girl and I go to Priscilla’s class where she teaches freedom, deliverance, and how to hear God in prayer.
I went after it. Every week, chains fell. Addictions (drugs, porn, alcohol, everything) supernaturally fell away. Identity was restored. In fact, the first thing God called me was “My son”. I didn’t think I had a dad, but when He told me that, I was forever changed.
Long story short, I was completely freed of everything within a matter of months. Memories of stuff I should have never of seen were deleted. I was (and am) so free. So much to the point I started ministering to others my age struggling with similar things. My girl and I got back together, we were baptized and born again on the same day (January 1st, 2017).
Not sure how to wrap this up.. we’re now at university together leading freedom ministry to people our age, teaching them that God does speak through prayer and the importance of identity in Christ. We’re on the path to marriage, I’m in LOVE with God... there’s been so many blessings and more testimony, but I’ll leave this here.
God pursues us with reckless love.. He brings beauty from ashes. Wherever you are in life, call out to Him, He loves you.
Todd White has his testimony on YouTube, if my testimony speaks to you, check his out, helped me a lot.
Thanks for reading, bless you :)

Sign languages are languages that use manual communication to convey meaning. This can include simultaneously employing hand gestures, movement, orientation of the fingers, arms or body, and facial expressions to convey a speaker's ideas.

History - A timeline of important events:

One of the earliest written records of a sign language is from the fifth century BC, in Plato's Cratylus, where Socrates says: "If we hadn't a voice or a tongue, and wanted to express things to one another, wouldn't we try to make signs by moving our hands, head, and the rest of our body, just as dumb people do at present?" Until the 19th century, most of what is known about historical sign languages is limited to the manual alphabets (fingerspelling systems) that were invented to facilitate transfer of words from a spoken language to a sign language, rather than documentation of the language itself. Pedro Ponce de León (1520–1584) is said to have developed the first manual alphabet.
  • In 1620, Juan Pablo Bonet published “Reducción de las letras y arte para enseñar a hablar a los mudos” (Read here)(Reduction of letters and art for teaching mute people to speak) in Madrid. It is considered the first modern treatise of sign language phonetics, setting out a method of oral education for deaf people and a manual alphabet.
  • In 1680, George Dalgarno published Didascalocophus (Read here)(The deaf and dumb mans tutor), in which he presented his own method of deaf education, including an "arthrological" alphabet, where letters are indicated by pointing to different joints of the fingers and palm of the left hand. The vowels of this alphabet have survived in the contemporary alphabets used in British Sign Language, Auslan and New Zealand Sign Language.
  • In 1692, Charles de La Fin published “Sermo Mirabilis” (Read here)(The Silent Language) describing an alphabetic system where pointing to a body part represented the first letter of the part (e.g. Brow=B), and vowels were located on the fingertips as with the other British systems. He described such codes for both English and Latin. By 1720, the British manual alphabet had found more or less its present form.
  • In 1755, Abbé Charles-Michel de l'Épée founded the first school for deaf children in Paris; Louis Laurent Marie Clerc was arguably its most famous graduate.
  • In 1776 and 1784, he published “Institution des sourds et muets, par la voie des signes méthodiques” (Read here) and “La véritable maniere d'instruire les sourds et muets” (Read here).
  • In 1817, Clerc went to the United States with Thomas Hopkins Gaullaudet to found the American School for the Deaf.

Linguistics: (a) Classification:

There are perhaps roughly three hundred sign languages in use around the world today. Useful links: A map of Major Sign Language Families, List of sign languages, List of sign languages spoken by at least 10,000 native signers It is important to understand the differences between the following:
(I) Deaf sign languages, which are the preferred languages of Deaf communities around the world; These include:
  • (i) Village sign languages which are local indigenous languages that typically arise over several generations in a relatively insular community with a high incidence of deafness. Examples: Kata Kolok in Desa Kolok, Bali, where two thirds of villagers sign even though only 2% are deaf. Adamorobe Sign Language in Adamorobe, Ghana, where the number of hearing signers is ten times the number of deaf people.
  • (ii) Deaf-community sign languages which arises where deaf people come together to form their own communities. These form the major class of Sign languages and once it is established as a language of education, it may spread and spawn additional languages. Examples: British SL, American SL, French SL and many others.
(II) Auxiliary sign languages, which are not native languages but sign systems of varying complexity, used alongside spoken languages. Simple gestures are not included, as they do not constitute language. Examples: Australian Aboriginal sign languages, Baby sign language, Signalong
(III) Signed modes of spoken languages, also known as manually coded languages, which are bridges between signed and spoken languages. Examples: Fingerspelling, Signing Exact English, Bahasa Malaysia Kod Tangan (BMKT)
Although sign languages have emerged naturally in deaf communities alongside or among spoken languages, they are unrelated to spoken languages and have different grammatical structures at their core. Sign languages may be classified by how they arise. Language contact and creolization is common in the development of sign languages, making clear family classifications difficult – it is often unclear whether lexical similarity is due to borrowing or a common parent language, or whether there was one or several parent languages. Here are a few key points that briefly describe major families of Sign languages.

Linguistics: (b) Fundamental Concepts:

Sign languages are as rich and complex as any spoken language, despite the common misconception that they are not "real languages". Sign languages are not mime—in other words, signs are conventional, often arbitrary and do not necessarily have a visual relationship to their referent, much as most spoken language is not onomatopoeic. Sign languages, like spoken languages, organize elementary, meaningless units called phonemes into meaningful semantic units. This is often called duality of patterning. As in spoken languages, these meaningless units are represented as (combinations of) features, although often also crude distinctions are made in terms of handshape (or handform), orientation), location) (or place of articulation), movement), and non-manual expression). More generally, both sign and spoken languages share the characteristics that linguists have found in all natural human languages, such as transitoriness, semanticity, arbitrariness, productivity), and cultural transmission. Common linguistic features of many sign languages are the occurrence of classifiers, a high degree of inflection by means of changes of movement, and a topic-comment syntax. More than spoken languages, sign languages can convey meaning by simultaneous means, e.g. by the use of space, two manual articulators, and the signer's face and body.

Linguistics: (c) Relationships with spoken languages:

Always there is a common misconception that sign languages are somehow dependent on spoken languages: that they are spoken language expressed in signs, or that they were invented by hearing people. Similarities in language processing in the brain between signed and spoken languages further perpetuated this misconception. Hearing teachers in deaf schools, such as Charles-Michel de l'Épée or Thomas Hopkins Gallaudet, are often incorrectly referred to as "inventors" of sign language. Instead, sign languages, like all natural languages, are developed by the people who use them, in this case, deaf people, who may have little or no knowledge of any spoken language.
As a sign language develops, it sometimes borrows elements from spoken languages, just as all languages borrow from other languages that they are in contact with. Sign languages vary in how and how much they borrow from spoken languages. In many sign languages, a manual alphabet (fingerspelling) may be used in signed communication to borrow a word from a spoken language, by spelling out the letters.
On the whole, though, sign languages are independent of spoken languages and follow their own paths of development. For example, British Sign Language (BSL) and American Sign Language (ASL) are quite different and mutually unintelligible, even though the hearing people of the United Kingdom and the United States share the same spoken language. The grammars of sign languages do not usually resemble those of spoken languages used in the same geographical area; in fact, in terms of syntax, ASL shares more with spoken Japanese than it does with English.

Linguistics: (e) Spatial grammar and simultaneity:

Sign languages exploit the unique features of the visual medium (sight), but may also exploit tactile features (tactile sign languages). Spoken language is by and large linear; only one sound can be made or received at a time. Sign language, on the other hand, is visual and, hence, can use a simultaneous expression, although this is limited articulatorily and linguistically One way in which many sign languages take advantage of the spatial nature of the language is through the use of classifiers. Classifiers allow a signer to spatially show a referent's type, size, shape, movement, or extent.

Linguistics: (f) Non-manual signs:

Sign languages convey much of their prosody through non-manual signs. Postures or movements of the body, head, eyebrows, eyes, cheeks, and mouth are used in various combinations to show several categories of information, including lexical distinction, grammatical structure, adjectival or adverbial content, and discourse functions. In ASL (American Sign Language), some signs have required facial components that distinguish them from other signs. An example of this sort of lexical distinction is the sign translated 'not yet', which requires that the tongue touch the lower lip and that the head rotate from side to side, in addition to the manual part of the sign. Without these features it would be interpreted as 'late'. Grammatical structure that is shown through non-manual signs includes questions, negation, relative clauses, boundaries between sentences, and the argument structure of some verbs. ASL and BSL use similar non-manual marking for yes/no questions, for example. They are shown through raised eyebrows and a forward head tilt.

Linguistics: (f) Iconicity:

Iconicity is the conceived similarity or analogy between the form of a sign (linguistic or otherwise) and its meaning, as opposed to arbitrariness. For example, deaf children learning sign language try to express something but do not know the associated sign, they will often invent an iconic sign that displays mimetic properties. Though it never disappears from a particular sign language, iconicity is gradually weakened as forms of sign languages become more customary and are subsequently grammaticized.

Linguistics: (g) Nicaraguan Sign Language:

Nicaraguan Sign Language presents a unique case among the languages of the world, both signed and spoken. It was spontaneously developed in the 1970s and 1980s, and, according to linguists who study it, is the first fully documented case of a language’s birth.
It first arose in the 1970s when the Deaf community in Nicaragua first began to come together. Before that, there had been no community and deaf people would use home signs and gestures to communicate with families and friends, though there were a few cases of documented isoglossia among deaf siblings. In 1977, a special school for deaf children was established, with 50 students. Two years later, that number had doubled. By 1983, there were 400 students across two schools.
Because of the school’s desire to focus on spoken spanish and lipreading, the students remained at a linguistic disconnect with the teachers. However, they quickly took to signing to each other. The first students quickly created a pidgin-like form of the language, bringing together their various home signs. Many who attended the school in this period can still sign in this form.
However, because the school saw the students weren’t grasping Spanish, they called in several linguists. When they got there, they realized that the younger students at the school had taken this a step further, and introduced complex grammatical structures, effectively creating a full language. This was the first documented case of a language being spontaneously created and showed that languages can arise in a contact situation even if the speakers aren’t fluent in any other language.
"The Nicaraguan case is absolutely unique in history," Steven Pinker, author of The Language Instinct, maintains. "We've been able to see how it is that children — not adults — generate language, and we have been able to record it happening in great scientific detail. And it's the only time that we've actually seen a language being created out of thin air." The language remains one of the best resources into the origin of languages.


Children who are exposed to a sign language from birth will acquire it, just as hearing children acquire their native spoken language.
The Critical Period hypothesis suggests that language, spoken or signed, is more easily acquired as a child at a young age versus an adult because of the children's plasticity. One suggests there is a critical period to learn signed languages from the early childhood.

Language endangerment:

As with any spoken language, sign languages are also vulnerable to becoming endangered. For example, a sign language used by a small community may be endangered and even abandoned as users shift to a sign language used by a larger community; even national sign languages can be endangered.


When the educational and upbringing centers for children appeared at the end of the 18th century, the main task of the faculty was to ensure that children could master the written form of the corresponding languages; the natural sign languages became the basis of the languages of instruction.
The first school for the advanced education of the deaf and hard of hearing in the world and remains the only higher education institution in which all programs and services are specifically designed to accommodate deaf and hard of hearing students was Gallaudet University, founded in 1864 originally as a grammar school for both deaf and blind children.
Deaf education majors and degree programs offer training and certification in the education of students with a variety of hearing abilities, addressing students' individual differences and needs.

2018.06.18 15:06 accomplished_pear Question about grades

I just graduated from a very large university in Texas in a pretty difficult major (usually meant for pre-med, pre-dent, pre-vet, pre-pharm, etc). My overall GPA is a 3.35 and sGPA is a 3.2. I know this is below average and not super great. Here's the issue: most of my grades were not bad. I only have 2 Cs in my entire GPA (biochem 1 and physiology), I just don't have a ton of As. I have a couple in my upper level science courses, but honestly the majority are Bs. I'm worried that PA schools will think I'm lazy/didn't work hard enough to get more As. I took at least 15 hours with at least 2 science/upper level science courses each semester. I also took all of my classes at this university, none at a community college. I just always had a hard time getting over the A/B hump.
I have already submitted my app for this round, so I'm wondering what your opinions are on this? Will PA schools think I'm lazy? How can I address this in my interview if asked?
Some additional info:
I've taken both ochems with labs, both biochems, genetics, microbiology with lab, A&P, immunology, nutrition, intro to neuroscience, and a couple others
GRE - 154Q, 153V (307 total)
PCE - current CNA at a hospital, will have about 450 - 500 hrs by August (plan to send an update email to each program at beginning of August). Have worked here since January. Also have some (12) PCE from medical mission trip to Nicaragua - I'm applying to schools in TX which have a much lower PCE avg than a lot of other schools btw
HCE - 429 hours working at on campus clinic (checked patients in for appointments), 60 hours volunteering in Ronald Mcdonald house room at another hospital, 50 hours from current job as CNA
Volunteering - ~400 hrs volunteering with Camp Kesem (camp for kids whose parents have cancer), ~50 from random other volunteering, 30 from Nicaragua trip
Shadowing - 100 PA shadowing hours (family practice and pain management clinic), 45 hours shadowing orthopedic surgeon (both seeing patients in clinic and performing surgery)
LORs - one from PA who I have shadowed and known for a long time, one from nurse manager at work, last from anatomy professor

2018.03.19 07:18 traveler36 Advice needed for my resume

Im a junior in college and its about time to apply! I have a lot for my resume already, but I was wondering if anyone has any advice for addition things I should take on before applying that will help boost my resume. I am in the peace corps prep program at my school, as well as a program where I went to Nicaragua to complete service for ten days. I studied abroad last semester in Italy where I taught elementary aged children english once a week. At my university I am also extremely involved and I am the Vice President of my Sorority, and the President of a club that runs the largest student run event on campus. My volunteer experience ranges from work with children to building houses with Habitat for Humanity. Is there anything else that would help to make my resume stand out?
