RE: Ranting corner
I have two essays and trigonometry homework. On top of all of that, everyone at my school blows-- in both literal definitions.

I maybe have five friends that don't suck completely. Can I just move to New Zealand and be bffs with Earmuffs? Confused

It refers to commerce raiding either way; to the best of my knowledge corsair was simply the original French term (from 'course') for such chartered activity - that is, authorized by letters of marque (state endorsement), which the English would have called 'privateering'...

What have either of you heard differently?

Privateer's were more likely to be pirates with papers they paid for...so essentially fake privateers.

No, you can't.

Do you mean figurative? If not I am completely baffled.

Welcome to my world 5 years ago.

Spoiler; it'll get worse as time goes on.

Well, unless you're like me, that is.

RE: Ranting corner
2 things.

1: Because I work for local government I have not had a pay rise for nearly four years. Found out today that if I did and it matched inflation then I could be on up to an extra £3000 a year. They have offered a measly 1% increase. Fucking bullshit and I am so wasted in my job.

2: 99.9% of the conspiracy community is fucking bullshit, full of fucking idiots who do no more research then watching shitty youtube videos and reading fucked up articles. They are so brainwashed yet they call others "sheep"

Fucking fucktards.

There is great wisdom in this statement.

So do something about it...
Do you even ask for a raise? Of course they're not just going to give you money..
And if you don't like your job than go find another one or go get re-educated to get a better job or some shit, sitting on your ass wont change anything.

The union that apparently represents us has tried to get a pay increase for us all. We are currently waiting on the results of a job evaluation that was done earlier this year. The results could see our pay go up but with local government having a forecast of a 10% budget cut next year I don't see how they can.

I have looked for other jobs but there is not much going. I have been studying hypnotherapy for over a year, getting hold of as much literature surrounding it as possible. There is no real official regulatory body of hypnotherapy though (like doctors for example) and their is no authority that could stop me from setting up and starting tomorrow if I wanted. Person to person/classroom training is available and I have the funds to do it. I'm still in the process of seeing which organisation has the best reputation and support network for ongoing learning.

RE: Ranting corner
Unions are so fucking useless, they're no better than a boss that refuses to give pay increases.
It sounds like for the last 4 years you would have been better off keeping the money you give to be part of the union.


Maybe there's no regulation body because hypnotherapy is a load of shit?



Speaking of jobs, after doing my weekly budget Wednesday I have come to the conclusion that I have been avoiding, I really need a fucking job. Something I've known for ages but haven't really been fucked to actual pursue. So I either need to cut back on eating out (no hetro) or get a job and because I enjoy honey chicken noodles, pizza, butter chicken and subway I'm going for the job option.
Plus I'm seriously bored out of my skull doing nothing but lounging around my room day in day out.

So, let the serious job search commence.
