Ya know I've been thinking...
I used to have alot of friends in my neighborhood, that is until life happened and they grew up. So it's been quite lonely around here. However, there is this family with a daughter and son who appears to be around my age (17/18-ish) who moved in right across the street from me about a year ago. I've been thinking about how cool it would be to have friends who conveniently live that close to me whom I can hang out with whenever pretty much.
So, I'm making it a goal to become friends with them.
But I will admit, it will be a bit tough approaching them to start a friendship. There's a pretty good chance that if I went up to them and simply said "hi" it will end up creating an awkward atmosphere. So I've been trying to think of something to say that will start a friendly conversation in the least awkward way possible the next time I happen to see them outside.
I don't know their real age, their names, nor even exactly what their face looks like as I've only seen them from looking out the window. Pretty much know nothing about them at all. So it will be interesting getting to know them.
I am Japanese.
I can not speak English.
Please teach me English.
watch and imitate the movie "My fair lady".
I am British and would love to learn Japanese. Maybe we can help each other?
I am indonesian, I am interesting in japanese culture, entertain and others...
my english was not bad, I hope I can help you...
Can you switch professions? Can you transfer to a different school in a different city and start over? Have you ever tried cognitive behavioural therapy or Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)? I'm in therapy doing EMDR and learning mindfulness meditation. I don't want to die anymore. Please keep looking for help. Please.
Today I'm very sad. I was going to sleep when my mother told me this. My friend, who taught me many things. She was a very intelligent and cultured woman, studied at Tokyo University, spoke many languages, travelled around the world, researched regional music and artistical expressions in Brazil. I'm very, very sad about this. It's like, you know, she was OK last week, and today I am informed that she was ina a car accident and was in a coma for two days before dying today. I really want to cry.
Sanae Shibata, You will be missed.
I know I'm a little late, but that's crazy man. A guy I met on this program in Costa Rica just died. It's so weird having someone your age die, and especially someone that was a friend. I feel like people my age (18) shouldn't be dying.
Komm, süßer Tod
Rest In Piss
I probably have other problems first but I this is my biggest fear right now.
I have actually been in school for a long long time, I got my degree in Economics a few years ago (took me 7 years almost to finish due to failing in first year) but I've grown due to this I think and have realized I'm not as dumb as I thought.
I've always been very shy and didn't have a lot of friends until high school. I also didn't really work till near the end of my University years. I worked retail part-time, and met some people. I was there for almost 3 years but after they changed management I got pretty fed-up and just quit. I even worked there for half a year after I finished Uni, and when I couldn't find a job my friend from elementary referred me to a job in his office area. I was good, made decent money and the job was decent. I felt really intimidated because most people were older than me or just plain old, and the workplace 'felt' really strict for me. Sadly I got let go due to downsizing. In the end, I didn't really meet anyone I could keep in touch with. I quit my retail job near the end of 2012 (around Christmas) when I just couldn't stand management anymore, and January 2013 (last year) was when I got let go from the office.
I lived on employment insurance for most of last year, because I could get more than if I found a shittier job. However, when I got let go was when I decided due to the influence of my gf and one of my good friends that I should try for an accounting diploma. I want to be an accountant, and my grades so far have been mostly good (I started with 4 A's in a row for the entry courses) and I was surprised I've done so well even in the harder courses. I've also attended some workshops at school regarding how to get hired by the 'main' companies (big 4 if you're familiar). I realize that I basically need to network and need to be social.
Social aptitude cn be faked pretty easily. Most people repeat the same themes over and over again. If you don't know what to say pretend to be interestedin what hey say and sk them to tel you more, or to explain further.
They all love he sound of their own voice.
Dude you even have a girlfriend! How can it be possible that you don't know how to socialize? Anyway, here's how things are: When you talk to someone, try to think of where they come from and what they want. Serve their needs on a silver plate when talking to them and they'll like you. Suggest staying in touch in some method. Do this with everyone you meet. You'll become very social, but be aware that this might consume you, as you will generally spend more time thinking for others and doing what others want instead of thinking for yourself and doing what you want.
I hope this helps.
I, unfortunately, lost myself in this method, because, I started doing it at a young age, and it more than consumed me. Would not recommend
There's always the possibility to stop talking to everyone and anyone you don't want to.
Anyone know any good jobs or careers for a person with schizoid personality disorder to go into?
Maybe you are just another bisexual?
Its hard to be bisexual. I know this cuz I am bisexual.
Seek professional help before it is too late.
This disorder can kill your personality.
I'm happy being schizoid, I just need a good job to do.
Programming, design, any job where you don't have to personally deal with retards, etc. Engineering fields might interest you.
Good question. There are also opportunities online, should you have the education. Many companies prefer to pay free lancers or home employees since they don't have to pay for a building; things like graphic design, website shit, possibly writing--definitely for free lancing but that's really competitive and variable profitable. One of these would be my ideal job, had I the skill.
'Personality' is just how you act in front of other people. Honestly, it really doesn't matter to misanthropes or schitzoids, or people whom simply don't enjoy the company of others.
>implying programmers and engineers don't have to deal with obnoxious mouth-breathing oxygen-thief drooling cockmongers every single day
It's a parody, but you get the idea. If you have a low tolerance for outrageous, stupid, brazen bullshit, tech is the wrong field for you.
