That's tough man. I'd say you should tell anyone that you're interested in after a few dates or so. I've been through the same and it sucks but I feel that it's something that you should share with a partner - why be with someone you have to hide from? Just my two cents.

Maybe it was some other factor why she ghosted you? Who knows.

I just want to say, no matter who wins, thank god we're fans of the NFC.

I love dominating teams, but Christ it feels like Pats Steelers is just a given at this point

Not a fan of AFC for this reason. Pats, Steelers, sometimes Ravens and Broncos. I feel that's how it's been for the last decade with no competition.

Thanks for the links.

“I call myself bisexual because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted – romantically and/or sexually – to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree.”

Is this the Robyn Ochs definition you we're referring to? Never heard of her before but that does sound good.

Yeah that's the often cited one and is probably one of the best explainations out there.

[31 M] As a young kid I had crushes on girls and somewhat effeminate, but when puberty hit I realized that I was also sexually attracted to men. For context, this was in like 98/99 and I didn't know that bi was a thing, so I came out to my family as gay. I generally rolled with that identity in my lower teens. I guess the rationale at the time was that if you're even slightly being interested in guys, you're just gay, right? Wrong. Major miscalculation on my part and my interest in men faded. This wasn't a social pressure thing for me, but more of an internal struggle. My family accepted the idea that I was gay a few months after I came out and I was friends with other kids that were lesbian/gay/questioning.

Time marched on and I dated only girls in my late teens to twenties. I had a few experiences with women, but my interest in guys resurfaced after a breakup with a girl - we weren't the most sexually compatible and it messed with me. I had major issues with both a gay or straight sexual identity in my twenties, trying to write off my attractions to either sex in certain ways depending on the context (loneliness, confusion, fetish, etc). I'm 31 now and just go with bi now. It ebbs and flows and it still messes with me at times too, but I roll with it. It's a tricky thing to realize and biphobia will mess with ya.

I'm definitely more romantically more interested in a girls and get quite turned on by them when I'm in proximity, but more often than not I'm more sexually interested in men when it comes to porn and fantasy. There is this one lady I know that thinks I'm just gay (doesn't believe the bi identity) but she turns me on incredibly, for example.

Id say that i'm more likely to notice women when I'm out and about but am occasionally interested in certain guys.

I guess the end game for me would be to settle down with a nice bi/pan/etc person who gets WTF is going on in my swirly head.

I hope this helps, makes sense, and doesn't come off too ranty.

You don’t wanna leave, but what future do you see there? A hick town that’s hostile to LGBT people isn’t going to be a pleasant experience for you. Especially if everyone at your job is an asshole now too. And your “friend” apparently busted you right out. Fuck all that. Pack up and move somewhere else. Find a big city you can disappear into and be whoever you want to be. No one will care. And your dating options will open up wide.

Yeah, I think this is really the beginning of the end of my life in the city/area I grew up in. I've been dealing with so many people sticking their nose in my business and unnecessary drama. At the least I'm going to relocate to the city which is kind of indifferent to LGBT folks, but I think I'm ready to start fresh again into adulthood. I just feel like I'm running from a problem but it's likely for the best.

CIVND studies to complete Collab. Working through the CBT Nuggets course since I finished my 2nd read through of the book the other week.

I learned my lesson from CICD and am going to put much more emphasis on reading through a bunch of manuals, do a SRND re-read, and assorted other docs (ie. official Cisco t-shoot stuff). Gunning for a July pass. This may be slightly trickier since we don't play around much with Collab video stuff at my job.

I passed the voice portion (210-060 CICD) about a week ago and am working on video (210-065 CIVND) right now.

A fair disclaimer - unless you're actively working with the tech I wouldn't bother. For the CICD, The books and CBT Nugget vids are not enough to pass and you will, I repeat, will be reading through tons of admin guides, the SRND, and assorted other documents off of Cisco's website. On top of that, you will spend a good chunk of money and time on it. It seems the going rate is taking the test 3x or 4x times to pass, just due to the obscure questions on it - unless you've seen the test a time or two, or are a complete savant, it will take a few attempts. I've spent about 8 months on voice and it'll take about 4 I figure for video, because I know how to approach it this time.

That being said, to pass voice, I used

  1. CICD and CIVND books (some of the voice material is in the video book)
  2. The SRND - http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/voice_ip_comm/cucm/srnd/collab10/collab10.html
  3. CBT Nuggets
  4. Kevin Wallace CCNA/CCNP Collab Videos
  5. CUCM, Unity, and CME admin guides
  6. There are also many sub-admin guides that I used like the DRF admin guide
  7. A handful of manuals and t-shoot guides found here: https://learningnetwork.cisco.com/community/certifications/ccna-collaboration/cicd/study-material
  8. I work with the stuff casually at my job
  9. I got the luxury of sitting in a test-pilot course at work being run by a CCIE Collab meant for CCNP Collab level workers for a week
  10. Boson practice exam

I had gone into this thing thinking I'd do a sidetrack before starting NP R/S - when all is said and done, it'll probably have taken me a year (8 hours of study a week) - and there is a bit of an opportunity cost trade-off here, since I hear it takes people roughly a year to roll through NP R/S.

Don't let me scare you though, just know that it isn't for the feint of heart. If you really, really want to get this, go for it. I'd otherwise recommend picking up another vendor's voice cert if you're looking for something VOIP related - the official Cisco materials just aren't "together" or comprehensive as compared to the CCNA R/S test and guides. Just my 2 cents.

Congratz! I passed mine about 2 weeks ago on the 3rd attempt as well. This exam is tough with little leeway, for sure. Onwards and upwards to CIVND (which I hear also really sucks, from co-workers that converted their Voice to Collab when this came out).

You went there often and NEVER tried their food?

What... what are you? Lol

limpossible 1 point

It's on my agenda. I usually go for drinks there and at night. Not sure how the food pairing would go with beer.

It does look good though.

chicken, waffles, beer. seriously, you're unsure how the food pairing would go? lol

It's the waffle part that I'm unsure about. IDK, I'll make sure to try it out next time I go.

No one likes this exam. 3rd party study material is hard to find. The devices are hard to practice on and expensive.

Just keep at it, I guess. People say this exam and the DC track are the hardest, so no fault of yourself for failing a few times.

limpossible 1 point

Yeah, it's kind of a punch to the gut. I think that the kicker here is that you really have to dig for material and the test in itself isn't so well thought out/written.

The real kicker is I can't even trust my practice exams anymore since I've beaten those to death and can pass the Boson and Pearson Vue OCG ones with no problem. The only thing I can do is slam up against the test and really research those poorly written questions/assume what the proper "Cisco" answer is.

Submitting... If I take a 1 month break I have to completely relearn it

limpossible 1 point

I hated subnetting for a great while and I thought it was some kind of math wizardry.... until one day it "clicks". I thought Odom's explanation was what did it for me. It took me a few months glancing at the topic and trying to wrap my head around it until one day I was like "Oh, this is easy". I aced subnetting on ICND1 when I took it in the previous version.
