Does that work if you don't itemize? I don't see many college students having more then the standard deduction.
To make his day special too, I would have to say have sex with him. If you aren't waiting then it's a perfect day for him to take you out and you to pleasure him or pleasure each other afterwards.
Most guys like chocolate too! Even flowers depending on the individual.
My Valentines with my fiancé starts with making breakfast together, sex, then Italian restaurant for dinner.
(no lunch because we always make too many pancakes)
Leased cars are great if you need/want new things every couple years. If you seem to change cars every year or every other year then you should lease. A leased car will always be new, a lot of the maintanence that comes with owned cars (especially later in their life) is negated, you are still responsible for returning the car in good condition though.
Cons are easy, your paying for a rental - no equity at all. I’m fact at the end of a lease if you don’t lease a new car from the dealer they will charge you an additional fee... (if you lease then you should be looking to lease before the first lease ends, a new dealer will buy you out of your first lease to get you in a new car - do this when you approach your miles limit or near the end of your leasing term).
Buying is a bit more satisfying in my opinion, if you can keep a car running 6+ years without getting bored then buying is for you. Payments are higher than leasing but at the end of it you actually have something that has some value unlike a lease. And if you drive the car for a few years after it’s paid off you’ll wind up having more money (in the long run) than a person who is leasing over the same time frame. I purchased my vehicle, it’s been paid off for a bit over a year now and having no car payments is a wonderful thing. However my car just rolled over 60k miles, so very soon I am going to have to spend a couple grand replacing shocks and some other misc. maintenance.
My wife leases, I buy. My car is now paid off so no payments but I do have general maint. She gets to change vehicles every other year and always has the nices new bells and whistles on whatever she wants to drive.
Good luck in your car hunt!
Thank you! That actually made a lot of sense to me! Lol my parents just tell me that I will be bankrupt if I lease.
It's low income housing where our rent is based off our income.
This is almost certainly actually housing assistance; the government or a grant makes up the difference between what you pay and market rate rent.
Oh i was unaware. So this would add to my assets? So the longer I live here the more I would pay?
I'm sorry that I can't help more, but I am not entirely sure what calculations they use or how they classify your grant. It doesn't seem to me that you would pay more the longer you stay unless your assets increase as well, but you would be well advised to talk to someone who is familiar with both the housing process and your grant.
Idk I took an Uber to Chicago from my house for $92. 2 weeks later took a cab back home from Chicago and it was $275.
I asked the cab driver to give me an estimate of how much it would cost and he told me it wouldn't be much because he would give me a deal since I was in my military uniform.
From now on I'll take lyft or Uber.
If I were you I would transfer. I'm also in an Mos that doesn't transfer to the civilian life (combat engineer). I would feel way more comfortable if I could fall back on something else even if I had to wait longer to do it.
The civilian life doesn't allow me to detect mines or build explosives. Im only here because I don't want to back out right before our deployment next year but afterwards I'm gonna pick out a new mos.
Do your female friends know? You can go bowling, an arcade place like Dave and busters, spa day with massage, do karaoke at home or bar, stay home play games with your girls.
If you go out have your girls help steer away the guys for you.
You can be a little passive and make a lame joke. Or just say something like- "Man I'm tired. Kept hearing some noises from your side of the room last night." then change the subject. Make him paranoid about it.
When you go in for the handshake go in deep. Then when he starts to squeeze take your pointer and middle finger and roll his pinky knuckle in and out while squeezing.
It hurts like a bitch haha
Thanks for sharing your experience.
Countless others have documented a similar diagnosis as a result of porn addiction. You should consider yourself extremely lucky that your fiancé is still by your side and hoping to make things work.
My honest opinion would be to completely cut out porn from your life, considering your still young, I would suggest 2-3 months of no PMO should get your orgasm back and lead to a life back to ‘normality’ - BUT YOU HAVE TO STICK TO IT!
Thank you! I know I really lucked out with her. I'll be trying my best. Is it true that cold showers help?
Start by dumping the fast food and eating as much organic as possible. Bad food cuts down your energy. Cook together.
Other time management ideas: Get rid of shit. You don't need half of what is crammed into your apartment -- go minimal and put things where they should be, always. Clean for 30 minutes every day, pick one area each week that gets deep cleaned - bathroom, half the kitchen, the closets. Learn how to do laundry properly, organize your closets, clear kitchen drawers, etc.
As for spicing things up, try upgrading your home space. Mood lighting, the best seating area set up away from the TV, more attractive walls etc. Look at pinterest for some ideas. You can hit the thrift stores together and find ways to make your home more enjoyable. Read classic novels together; start with Tropic of Cancer/Capricorn. :)
Thank you that's great advice!
You could try paralegal if you want to go the lawyer route but aren't sure. It would give you some experience with the profession even if it isn't exactly the same thing. Lots of paperwork.
Maybe try something altruistic, maybe even the peace corp. Here is some advice I once heard that I try to take for heart. Many people with the fancy yacht and the dozens of cars regret their lives on their deathbeds, but no one says "Man, I really wasted my life helping those kids in africa".
Thank you! That's great advice. I'll look into the peace corp.
Yess i am in the US. And no i havent checked out the website at all yet. Something just hit me today and i decided today about enlisting. I was going to do research today when i got home from work. Ibwouldnt know what website to check right now at the moment other than the main one that will come up on google
Okay well definitely don't talk to a recruiter yet and also sleep on whatever decision you make because it will be a contract you sign. The easiest way out of the contract is to fulfill your duties. What state are you in? Most states give free school to service members. Also, when you check out each branch write down all their benefits (school, insurance, etc) because that should help you decide for sure.
Im in California. Doing all this research will be me "sleeping" on it. I wana weigh all my options and see what benefits me best. Where do i go to find out their benefits? Any chance can you elaborate exactly on what the contract will be or does it vary?
Right now I believe every contract is 8 years But depending where you go only half will be active. Army National Guard 6 years on 2 years off. Active army 4 years on 4 years off. Off time is when you aren't required to work but they may call you in emergencies. You also have to decide if you want to be a reservists/part time or active/full time. You can just Google a military branch and most likely the first option will be the official site. If you have any issues or need more information you can pm me, I have no issue with helping.
Sorry not familiar with posting links on reddit but here's 2! https://www.nationalguard.com/careers/?cid=cid%3Dcageneralpage_txt-generalpag24577_web_20150527 https://www.airforce.com/apply-now?gclid=Cj0KCQiAgZTRBRDmARIsAJvVWAu-_C-nAVEJV1_hprejf3HLkCS4Ikcc0tmclYaVgpa3znJlbhO8AcsaAhb0EALw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds&dclid=CMeu0pXO8dcCFQ3GwAodHJwHjA
That's terrible. Does your mother know now? I would ask your brother about it. Tell him that it's shitty of him to borrow money from everyone and not even try to pay it back or let them know. In my family that is grounds to being disowned. Idk if your family is like that though. Warn him first but I would for sure talk to your mom to let her know as well.
Honestly, I look sometimes to confirm my assumptions. Some people's face and clothing appearance make them look in between genders sometime. I only check if I need to speak to them so I know whether to say ma'am or sir. Though you shouldn't be worried about it. If someone thinks negatively about your appearance then they are not worth your time.
