My confession is that I don’t know how to handle having a life..
I recently switched from a job where I worked 60-70 hrs a week and dint hve a life and now I work 3-4 hrs a day (20-30hrs/week) with a lot of free time and I’m not sure what to do. My Gfs works normal hours but is in a different city currently. Friends are all busy during the week. Any advice?

Y’all hiring?


Video games

😳 What is the new job??

But to answer, find a hobby!




An easy 'hobvy' to get is volunteering. What interests you? Animals (humane society, ASPCA, nature rescues), outdoors (state/national parks, nature centers), kids (boys and girls club, girl/boy scouts, 4H). If you join a gym you can do classes so you build the sense of community and have some friends to hang out with more often from that


Sports or hobbies. Try a few at the beginning and then focus on the one you like the most (i suggest chess if you are not into “big sports”)

Also education. Learning something new is amazing to shake things up.

Good for you, OP. I can’t wait to be as fortunate one day, I literally have no control over my time and there is so much more i’d rather be doing.

Can I have your job? Are there hiring?

Which job is this ? I’m looking for a 9-5 job..

Side hustle for more money, but based on your interest and passion

Are y’all hiring??

I’ve accepted a new job but I feel like I’m getting burned out from my current. Anxious about starting the new job with this feeling.


My mother worked at night so I'd go to a babysitter at night and then go to school from there. I shared my babysitter's teenaged daughter's bedroom (along with 3 other kids who I don't remember if they were other night babysitter kids or the grandchildren of the babysitter.

Once when I was 12 the babysitter's daughter snuck her boyfriend in and they had s€x - right in front of me. At 12 I was the oldest kid in the room. The others were like 4,6,8 years old. CONTINUED

I grew up thinking sex was this sneaky, fun, almost dirty and scandalous thing. Now I’m unable to think sexual thoughts about guys I have feelings for, and could only be with someone hyper sexual (and likely not interested in a relationship) to get me in the mood. Sex comes first for me for this reason and it seems to be a huge blocker in building a relationship since they’re never interested in anything more. I feel broken :(


I have serious kleptomania. I feel a strong need to take things - but only if I can’t buy them. If I can buy something I’ll buy it but it loses all the appeal - I don’t like taking things for the money aspect, I like taking things as a trophy because it’s unique, other people couldn’t just buy it. Anyone else here feel this?


Hot take: Media convinced women like me to marry older men. Now 30sF NYC with interest in enjoying life post-Covid and pre-children but with older husband who sleeps by 10pm. Trade-offs for life experiences feel so real now.
