  1. Ever feel completely out of your depth?

    I have felt that way a few times in my career. Usually when I would get promoted which I always worried was lifting me to my " level of incompetence".A close friend, after listening to me whine over wine about how I would not be able to do the job said "It's not that you can't do the job, it's that your self confidence is shit." I have remembered that ever since. I remind myself when these times happen that I can probably handle it because I have handled all the challenges that I had faced to get where I am, and my nerves are just because my self confidence is shit.. Helped me face new stuff. Thay already liked your proposal, so it is not a challenge you can't handle.. Public speaking, yeah I never liked that even though I had to do it a lot.. Use your deep breathing techniques, know your presentation info well, and have slides so they look at something besaides you all the time. Good luck!

  5. Describe marijuana in your own eyes.

    All of my family lives in Holland and feel pretty much the same way.
  6. Describe marijuana in your own eyes.

    That's me. Always livin' on the edge. Never know what crazy thing I'm doing next. Don't fall in love with me, cause I'll just break your hearts. Okay, gotta go hang laundry... No, never worked for panic attacks. It's actually one of the reasons I would smoke it for insomnia, to avoid that period of paranoia and just go to sleep.
  7. Describe marijuana in your own eyes.

    I wonder how prone to violence these folks are when they are straight?. Inmy own experience, which for me is the tried and true study,being stoners didn't stop a person prone to violence from becoming violent.. It goes so much deeper, to triggers and upbringing and mental stability..
  8. Describe marijuana in your own eyes.

    I have seen lives ruined by pot. Not so much because of the drug, but because of the laws related to the drug. I don't see much wrong with pot. I don't smoke it much. It makes me laugh, eat and then sleep. I actually do use it once in a while when my really bad insomnia hits.. I like it better than my Adivan that I was using when I got anxiety attacks a coupleof years ago. Usually helps. Problem is I don't oftenknow where to get it. I guess Trudeau is going to legalize it. We'll see. It certainly is ridiculous that it is still somewhat illegal in Ontario.
  9. Describe marijuana in your own eyes.

    I don't think the choice of drug is the thing. I have been with violent stoners and docile drinkers.. I think it has to do with the situations in play that set them off.. The alcohol and pot just influence whether the punch lands as well as when the idiot is straight.
  10. I think that part of the brain that does small talk is underdeveloped in me. I am great alone, and I am great having deep or heavy conversations with people. but I feel completely out of my element when small talk is required. I get anxious in those types of situations and try to avoid them. I think that's why I prefer dinner out with friends vs parties.
  11. What is your greatest accomplishment in life?

    I would say my son, but really, I wouldn't want to steal his accomplishment from him.. So on a personal level, quitting my job and going to art school.. Seems like the antithesis to accomplishment, I know. But after cancer a second time earlier this year, dealing with that, knowing I was wasting my life in an overly stressful IT job, deciding to just quit and do whatever I want because life is so short, and then doing it.. Yes, it is an accomplishment. Enjoy today!

    Happy birthday, Gunsguy. Enjoy today!!
  13. Sacking a friend/colleague

    If it is the first real problem, then you may need the "warning" discussion to make clear the inappropriate behaviour anf that it cannot be tolerated in the future. Establish that it was inappropriate and disrespectful to her colleagues.. She may be offended. But you are already offended so you need to clear the air anyway. I always hated discussions like these, but they are absolutely necessary at times and you do her a favour in the long run. Or it leads to her leaving one way or the other. Some people just don't fit well. It is not a right or wrong, just the way it is. Good luck, GG.
  14. cheating girlfriend

    So, just going by what you are saying and not having any info from her side... If it was just about the bills, I would suggest that you get another roommate who isn't quite so damaging. There is something about catching your partner's infidelity a second time. Means it's not a fluke. You have as much evidence as you need that she is not being loyal or good to you. Time not to worry about her, and worry about yourself. Start outting your energy into putting a plan together that is about putting yourself first. ?i wonder if it would not be a good idea to see a therapist to help you see clearly while you are at a difficult place emotionally. I realize that this may be a problem , financially. The mygnr couch may help somewhat. Now, it is only my opinion.. But if you are also considering the option of trying to work it out with her, then it is not going to be any easier than breaking up, and you may go through this all again in the future. I have supported too many friends through breakups and feeling all that pain over and over again. Be good to yourself, spoil yourself. It will make you stronger!
