I'm doing an apprenticeship as a teacher's assistant as part of becoming an elementary school teacher myself, and I hate the teacher I was assigned to. She is just so vile to the children sometimes. She's great while they're doing well in class, but if someone does something wrong or doesn't understand what she wants them to say/do, she turns into a monster. Screaming at them for the tiniest shit. Loudly ridiculing them in front of the whole class, instead of helping.
I'm going to talk to my prof about it tomorrow, but not a lot is going to happen except "well, then learn from her how to be better!" Thanks to corona, I'm probably not even allowed to visit other classrooms for a day or two.

I'm trying my best to be understanding and kind to the kids but hell, they'll have to live with only her again when I return to uni. I hate that thought. Yes, compared to a lot of kids I've worked with in the past (I work at a daycare), they seem to need an awful lot of repetitions to understand certain simple things. But they're clearly trying, it's not like they're actively disrupting class...

And on top of all that, because I am, of course, an emotionally maladjusted crybaby, her behaviour really gets to me on an emotional level.

At least I am being reassured that it would be okay to wear simple lolita as a teacher in a small school. I was kinda worried about that, but I guess I'll be fine.

RIP you if they've got you holding in person classes. We're doing remote learning and gave each kid a computer or tablet, which means I have some job security, t. school IT.
Expect anything nice you wear to school to get thrown up on, children are wicked little beasts.

>> No.10462688

>>10462683
I'm a bit afraid of that too, but I've worked with children ages 5-11 for over 10 years now and 'only' ever seen a child vomit 3 times. I bet that'd be more if I worked with 20+ kids each and every day, but as a teacher I won't get close enough for them to actually hit me, and I won't have to clean it up myself either (in my current job, I do).
The risk is low enough that I'll take it

>> No.10462703

>>10462682
Every teacher yells at the kids sometimes. Anyone who claims not to is lying. In my experience, there's that one fucking kid in each year's class that wears us down. So unless she's yelling insults or something else inappropriate, I get it and you will too once you have your own classroom.

God I look like shit in candids. What’s the point of making and wearing cute clothes if the people around me always insist on taking candid photos in which I look like a messy goblin linebacker? At least if they agreed to help me take a decent coord shot I’d have something to slap a sticker on and post to IG but no, “candids are so much more authentic!”

>> No.10462880 [DELETED] 

The voice inside my head, my inner monologue I guess, is very harsh. But it’s all directed at myself. Lately, even at small things, the first thing that comes to mind is “you’re such a burden, kill yourself.”

If I don’t handle a situation perfectly and make human mistakes “I should kill myself” is the answer. Or if I try to speak to people about the troubles I’m having “you’re wasting their time, kill yourself” again is the answer. I know that it’s normal for people to rely on others, but the thought of having to inconvenience other people however so slightly brings up this wave of self hate that crashes down. I’m not worth the space, I’m not worth the effort. The resources keeping me alive could go towards someone else. Someone else could be having an easier time in life if I would just die.

I try very hard to find things that make me even a little happy. People are telling me that my coords are good, and while for a moment I get happy that I might have done some good in the world, the wave of terrible thoughts come back. “They don’t mean it, they’re just being nice because they feel sorry for you.” “If you were dead someone else could have x item, it’d make them happy. Why are you preventing them from being happy?” Etc . Everything gets tainted by the terrible thoughts in my mind. It hurts. I hurt all the time. I’m being physically abused. I’ve told the only person I thought I could count on to step in and help. They don’t care. I can’t go to the police, my family would disown me.

I have no idea where life after this pandemic will take me. It terrifies me. I feel like I can’t do anything by myself. That I’m too stupid to. Not competent enough. Never good enough at anything. So I should just kill myself. I’m sorry for you even having to read this.

I have a friend I've known for about 5 years. She's super sweet, but she's had a harsh life with illnesses, both mentally and physically, some chronic, that still hinder her today. She's super fun to hang around with for like a couple of hours, she's actually one of the few friends I have who also enjoys the same weeb things I do, but I feel like I've kind fo become her crutch? Like whenever she feels bad she calls/texts/sends some videos and whilst I love her, I feel liks she only reaches out to me? I have told her multiple times that whilst I want her to be happy, I cannot take all of it, and that she should see a therapist. She used to go to one in the past, but from what I've understood she used to go to one she really clicked with, but the therapist moved away, and she hasn't gone to find a new one again. Right now its a lot, there have been some shifts in her family life and she recently started school again, and she just seems to... dump it all on me? She sends these videos or voice mails to me and I work evenings so I don't have the time to watch them and if I do I feel like I HAVE to respond....

I don't know, I love her, and I like hanging around her for a day, but she's a lot to handle at times.

If you told her and she is still doing it, then you’ve done what you can. You can politely tell her you need a break or ghost depending on the type of person you are.

Had a friend like this once who ironically ghosted me before I realized just how much she was being. My life is so much better off with out her and yours probably will be, too. Still, it’s hard.

Not to be dramatic, but things (personal, external) are genuinely getting to be to much and I’m stuck deciding which of my old self destructive coping mechanisms I am going to let slide to get through this.

It’s looking like shopping addiction is winning, which at least won’t cause me physical harm and I’ll have a great wardrobe in the end. I’m sadness’s though because I did a really good job with my finances the last few years and I just know it’s all going to be shot.

I've been getting my dopamine hits from stalking FB marketplace for cheap/free shit and going to garage sales to get new shit. It's still unhealthy shopping addict behavior, but less bad on your wallet.
On the healthier side, maybe get some sort of puzzle booklet (crosswords, suduko, whatever you're into); I've found I can get invested in them and the small sense of accomplishment from figuring something out/completing a puzzle is nice.

You seem like you really care, which is great, but you should keep an eye on that. Teaching will break you if you let it. The ~system~ just doesn’t work and you will constantly encounter people like this teacher. You have to learn to do what you can the best you can and let go after that.

Definitely feel this, too. I do t normally think I’m bad looking, I know I have areas I could improve in when I’m in the right frame of mind someday but anytime I see a candid pic of myself it completely ruins what good things I see and like about myself. If shocks me so much. Always they look like some fugly goblin cosplaying as me and nothing like the me that I see everyday in mirrors.

It makes me feel so strange and awful about myself. Especially when others in candids look just like themselves of even worse when someone I know looks way better in them than they do outside if candids. Sometimes it makes me concerned I have some kind of weird reverse kind of body dysmorphic disorder where I think I’m cute in mirrors and reflections but it’s all a lie my brain has tricked me into and I really am the fugly goblin all along.

My boyfriend is usually very supportive on me wearing lolita, but lately every time I show him something I want to buy he comes up with a bunch of reasons why I shouldn't. I am currently working from home and my income is good enough so I don't worry too much since I can cover all my expenses. He doesn't have a stable job so I can understand why he's worried. But it breaks my heart that I haven't been able to buy anything because of the pandemic, and the time I find something to cheer myself up he discourages me on buying it. And I know shopping doesn't equal happiness but it feels nice to do it from time to time, you know?

If they’re really getting into the hobby why are they rushing into it to the point that they’re buying while not even having a 75% understanding of how they want to look/what they want?
Maybe they are just trying to network but I can’t help but always want to reply to their shit with: go look at tags for inspiration and make your own decisions, you should be dressing for yourself not others.
That or ask your friends? I guess a lot of these girls just don’t have anyone to turn to to ask these things besides the groups and honestly that’s sadder than everything else I’ve said. Thank god I have friends that aren’t even into the hobby but I can go ask them for second opinions on certain items because after all in the end it’s fashion.

I'm not one of those people but I fucking suck at making decisions, especially about things I'm not really educated on. If someone makes decisions for me I'm often more satisfied even if I don't like the choice because at least I'm doing something instead of picking none of the above. Plus after a few times I start to get enough of a feel to choose things on my own. You're kind of right about friends though, usually you would ask a friend or family member to choose for you. Then again, it can be exciting to get basically a random choice by asking a stranger.

I’ve gotten into a really neurotic behavior with lolita. It started with a brief stint of shopping addiction, which I seem to have a better control of now. But now it’s about obsessing over my coords, insta layouts, etc. I wish I could channel this energy into letting some pieces go since I could use the money but I’m at the point where I love every piece in my wardrobe. And I know the market is intense right now so while I might walk away with a fat payout, I may never find that dress again.

After loving lolita for almost a decade, these last 4 months I've finally had the finances to buy myself some lolita. The first three dresses I bought looked so bad and just accentuated features I hated about myself and I got really discouraged from ever trying to wear it again. Recently got an AP dress in the mail that I'd waited months for and tried it on with a blouse that I thought I hated it and I legit almost cried because I actually looked so cute for once. Idk what was so unflattering about the other dresses I bought but this one just made me finally feel like a real lolita. I'm so happy that I don't look terrible in this fashion that I love so much.

I know this is shit advice, I guess, since you can't really jus decide to not be afraid.

A lot of times, things people fear are just not actually common enough to affect them unless they specifically worry about it.

That makes sense, dumb name but anyone who fakes stuff for attention is very likely to have one of those traits.

I think it’s wrong to assume people are lying about their experiences with oppression though. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve encountered someone (usually men but occasionally women) who is horrible to women but is very well liked by guys who refuse to believe that the person is completely two-faced.

It makes me sad as a Canadian to see the shit Americans are going through. Yeah, America is economically and militaristically one of the strongest countries around, but that doesn't necessarily equate to happy and cared for population. I feel like a lot of Americans just don't learn about the rest of the world. I don't like to be that conspiracy guy but it really feels like your corporations and politicians are trying to keep the general populace in the dark from how awful the conditions can get down there. If anything, I feel pity for people who think that more liberal policies would harm them. It could be so much better for you guys.

Honestly friend, I can't speak/help with that as a dude. The worst I really have to worry about is getting the shit kicked out of me which doesn't really phase me, plus I have a fair chance to fight back. Sexual assault seems a lot more traumatic. I watched my best friend just wither into a husk after she was raped, shit's awful. My best advice would be to get some kind of weapon and learn to use it. Take some self defense classes and gain some confidence in your ability to resist. I guess it also helps that I legitimately enjoy fighting.

I watched an undercover video on YouTube showing how slow and inefficient the "free" Canadian healthcare system is. Bottom line, you guys are paying over 50% taxes to wait 2-3 years for a state doctor. The triage nurse finally told the poor guy to go to a private doctor's office.

Honestly man, stop telling yourself it isn't bad because it's not actually rape. The betrayal alone would be far worse than anything.

The US government literally pays more percentage-wise for healthcare than almost all other countries in the western world, including those with socialized healthcare.

The highest tax bracket for Canadians is 33%, which only applies to someone making over 200K a year, which means they'll still net 133K+ a year.

The waits here are not long for emergencies. There is a shortage of GPs in most places, yes, but there is in the US, too.

Please, educate yourself. This is embarrassing. This is why the world looks down on Americans.

Just because your Federal rates are about on par with the US (maybe a little lower), your per-province taxes push that total way higher. We have states here that have zero state income tax. Maybe go ask your parents how it really works before assuming that the magical federal 33% is all they pay.

Also, what is this senior-citizen clawback thing y'all have? Do you really take a bunch of tax money from your elderly? Ewww.

You're literally quoting numbers for individuals making over 200K a year. Even if we go with the highest on that list, at 53%, they're still clearly basically 100K. Anyone can live extremely comfortably on 100K a year.

If I want to pull comparative numbers, California has a 13% state tax rate. That combined with your top federal tax rate of 37% means they hit 50%, about the same as here. Sure, there are a handful of states that don't have state-level taxes. I would also love to see if those particular states happen to pay more or less for medical costs, but I couldn't easily find that data.

I don't know what you're referring to with your last bit. People pay taxes. This includes the elderly. If they solely receive old age pension or something similar as income, they probably don't even make enough to be taxed.

kek speaking of SJWs I found out about an anti woman cult white trans women join.

the basics of it
>shit on anyone asigned female at birth. code words for this are "afab" "cafab" and "tme"
>prey on young men, tell them that if they don't take estrogen no one will love them
>prey on young trans women, get the idea in their head that women are the most oppresive, and that as trans women they are superior
>bully the fuck out of women and use SJWs dumbass logic against them. "transphobia!" "misogyny!" it works.
>get away with transphobia, harboring rapists, running a literal cult, the works.
>if anyone in the cult speaks out about it, bully them too and make up stories about how they are abusers
>some people in this cult are also neonazis who preach about white trans women superiority

since its a "protected group" you get crickets from SJWs about it. look up "baeddel" "cafab" or "tme" sometime, bonus points if you do it in the tumblr search bar

I’ve been in and out of the fashion for a long period of time now, and each time has been a completely different experience. The first time I got into it, I was a 15 year old edgelord. I was more interested in looking cute, breaking rules, and ruffling feathers on LJ than anything else. I made shitty friends and got caught up in drama. Then I grew out of it, did normal stuff, and fell back in love with lolita. This time, I mainly focused on my involvement in the online community since my irl comm didn’t like me (for obvious reasons). I started blogging, I did unboxing videos, I wore lolita almost every day, all because I fixated on becoming efamous with zero success. It ended up turning into a full blown shopping addiction where I had to have the most popular/newest release, obsessing over who’s liking or commenting on my pics, going on CGL and falling apart if I got posted. Eventually I took a break to do my own thing again, and after a couple of years I came back. What’s nice about this time is that I’m more concerned with making sure my coords are well balanced, and less of what print I’m wearing (still kinda matters to me lol). I’m thinking of ways I can style a wig differently to bring it new life, instead of buying another one (I put wigs on my wishlist during my downtime).

It’s been great fun! Granted I still slip into old obsessive behaviors. I had a month long relapse with my shopping addiction and spent more on myself than I have in 2 years combined. I don’t want to be efamous anymore but I still bask in the positive attention I get for my coords via social media lol. I’m probably a long way away from being a healthy, functioning adult. But I feel like I’m a little happy for once.
