/job/11112 Will I ever find a job which won't make me want to kill myself?
I guess this is more venting than anything else as I suspect the answer will be 'no'.

I've had two 'proper' jobs in my life - both office based. The first was a graduate scheme which was fairly competitive. I never really wanted the job but I didn't want to disappoint my parents by not getting a decent job straight out of uni. When I got the job I felt like I shouldn't be there - everyone else on the graduate scheme was really enthusiastic and motivated and competent, whereas all I could do was stay slumped in my resentment, daydreaming about anything other than work. It was alright for the first few months but it didn't take long for me to become immensely demoralised and demotivated, trying to get through the day doing as little as possible while fantasising about jumping out of a window in between applying for other jobs (with no luck).

I managed to stick it out there for 2 years, and I have since got a job in something I find more interesting. For the first 3 months or I didn't actually mind getting out of bed in the morning, I perhaps even enjoyed the job. But now, 4-5 months in, I just want to get out by any means necessary.

I wonder if I feel this way because of the nature of office work, or if I'd be any less miserable doing other types of work. I suspect a lot of the resentment I feel has to do with the corporate and yuppy cultures which I detest, but find myself forced to play along with. Or perhaps it's a broader resentment towards the drudgery of wage slavery and work in general.

I suppose what I want is the freedom to work as much or as little as I want to support myself, without having my surplus labour extracted, rather than being forced to work 9-6 Mon-Fri in return for a wage. But I've obviously been dispossessed of the means to do that because capitalism etc.

Is there any way out?

Right, smug mode off. Have a look at some of the vacancies, then if you have pertinent questions I will do my best to answer them. But seriously, lad, that was hardly fucking difficult.

Okay, I admit my response was not the most helpful. So: my village has an outdoors activity company that employs about 60 Westerners. These guys are cracking people - the chaff gets ditched fucking fast. As a result the long termers are all exceedingly good people.

Each week they have a different school group camping by the beach - say 100 kids, average age 12. Each day the staff take the kids out on the ocean, hill walking, mountain biking, etc. Each evening about 10 of the staff camp with the kids to keep an eye on stuff.

They work 5 days a week at the school, from 7 to 7. On the other two days they chip in a day or twos labour depending on requirements on the farm that helps subsidise their existence.

They are provided with free shared accommodation - two to a room. Food is shared, with a rota scheme for cooking and much of it comes straight from the farm. Expect lots and lots of fruit and veg.

For first-timers or complete novice full training in first aid, health and safety and the like, while also being trained in surfing, sailing, skateboarding and the like.

The pay is initially dire, you will not exactly be saving, and you won't be hitting the bright lights of Wan Chai on your wages, but you will be able to afford a few beers and smokes, and have an instant community of other staffers to have fun with.

Professionalism is key - you will be dealing with children in risky situations. Basically, don't fuck around, get stuck in and be pro-active, and it will be notice.

So they're basically using gullible gap year twats as slave labour. Clever.

Consider working holiday visas for Australia, Canada, or New Zealand. It probably wouldn't be as exciting as working with kids in bongo-bongo land but at least you'll get paid.

/uni/6235 Quantitative finance/econ or Applied Maths PhD
Hi, I'm an American finishing up my MSc Mathematics. I'm looking to study urban development or quantitative finance (Much of the math is the same tbh so not worried what the title is called).

I was wondering if yall might recommend any universities with a heavily quantitative economics PhD or something called Quantitative Finance. I'm looking for a reputable university in a cool city, got any leads?

Btw I'm wondering do MSc students get funding in your country? In America it's hit or miss. A PhD wouldn't hurt would it.
Thanks

/emo/24743 Job related woes. Not getting sacked, but now I'd much rather I was
Hallo, got diagnosed with anxiety induced depression a couple of months back, had been suspicious for months before that though. Currently on Venlafaxine, 75mg/day. Had a couple of breakdowns at the bar I work at in January, so management got concerned and we started a dialogue. Sorry, this is quite a long post. It's been a busy week.

A couple of weeks after a progressive chat with the GM about how he could help, one of the managers asked me to replace some old cans with new bottles, and keep the redundant stuff for staff drinks on the weekend, so come the weekend, I took a couple of cans from the cellar when I was stocking, and left them in my hoodie, on top of my bag in the staff room to take up after shift. I didn't confirm with management that this was ok, I took it as assumed since I'd been told. Bad idea, I didn't make it out of the staff room, got called into the office bag searched et al, turns out someone had gone into the staff room and noticed the cans when they were moving my clothes, assumed as theft.

In terms of the disciplinary/investigation, IMO it's all cut and dry, I know the camera could see me taking the cans, and then the cans were in the staff room in my hoodie. It's just a matter of intention, if they think I was trying to take them off the premise then I should be sacked. I didn’t panic after it was clear my stuff had been moved, everything hung up bar my hoodie that was positioned in the corner of the camera-bound staffroom (where it had previously been placed on top of my zippable, padded bag…with all my other stuff. Basically, I thought what I was doing was ok, but if it wasn’t then it should just be a matter of policy and they should just fire me so I know where I am. I just want to get that done and out of the way and the GM insists that we have this meeting, despite everyone having clearly made their decisions (as he admitted today), and you can't intellectualise your way back into someone's trust, so that's fucked.

That incident happened a few hours before I was gonna cross the country via bus for mothers day, and I was feeling too grim to do it so I called my mum on Sunday morning to apologise. She's the kind of mum you'd buy at John Lewis, mental health advocate as well. I was having trouble explaining why I couldn't come down but she started having a go at me so I told her about the diagnosis (I hadn't wanted her to fuss over me) and was met with "I know you have depression but you should just be a man and see me". I knew that she was just angry, so I said I had to go and we smoothed it out a couple of days later, but that really hit me.

Anyway, the Monday following mother's day, I was walking the dog to my girlfriend's house, to meet her and explain the work situation and the mum situation, and I started having a panic attack, so we started arguing because I'd promised I'd come, and now I was just sat on a bench with a dog I now felt incapable of looking after. I texted her the basic outline and how it was affecting me, and she said that before she'd received that she'd been composing a text saying that we should take a break. She's been great during this but it's taking a toll on our relationship, but things are generally ok.

After that I missed the disciplinary meeting. I pulled myself together a few hours afterwards, came in to apologise, was told we couldn't do it without a second manager, so we rescheduled for the next morning. That morning, had an argument with my gf and ended up going foetal and kind of didn’t get out of bed until midnight.

At this point I figured I would be getting sacked, so I just needed to get it over with, went in the next day and apologised, said personal reasons, "Not good enough", explained the facts of what had happened with mum/girlfriend, but avoided talking about how it'd made me feel, hoping I wouldn't have to. I was given a last chance to come in, and we'd rearrange for Monday (today).

I went in today. The witness manager isn't in. He's been called away, so again we can't have the meeting (albeit the 'fault' score is still 2:1 to me). Since I was there, the GM explained that he no longer trusted me as a result of initial circumstances and missed meetings, and whilst the disciplinary would still be carried out and I'd be able to stay working there, it'd be on one shift a week for a while. I said I'd been trying to find day jobs so it might be for the best, as I've had my fill of bar work...but I just felt like collapsing. I was hyperventilating on the walk there, after all their 'final chance, last meeting, be here then', bam, "Sorry mate this guy had to go, tell you what, keep yourself free all day so we can phone, or we might call you tomorrow." Fuck.

24745 And yet more.
I don't like making a big deal out of things, I have convictions, I'm happy to stand up to people if they're trying to injure/insult someone, because it's really easy to tell when you're basically 'in the right' and when someone is being an unambiguous ass, but when it comes to work relationships I have a bit of a complex about bothering people, especially in a high-overturn industry, and a company where getting caught organising a literal theft ring involving managers and staff will get you transferred if the owner likes you, but you get sacked over being late once if the wrong person wants you gone. If I think I can make it through something without having to reveal any details of my personal thoughts or feelings, I'll aim for that, like I don’t know if I’m expect to look the manager in the eye and say "I didn't come in because I was on the verge of topping myself". I have trouble talking about it (stuttering, repetition, trailing off), so I certainly can’t expect him to understand it from me. When I first told management that I’d been diagnosed, they seemed compassionate and open, and the GM put my next week as a holiday, and cut my shifts ostensibly to give me some space and let me relax. I didn't get paid for this holiday. I didn't get paid for it for over a month. So essentially the response was "You had a panic attack? Ok, you're suspended for a week and your shifts are cut." After a week I explained to him that this was the opposite of what I needed, he said he'd give me more hours, so I went from 5-6 shifts, to 2 shifts, to 3 shifts over that month. I mean it's something. But yet again, today in the 'informal meeting', the GM said that sometimes he forgets, sometimes he has no intention of altering hours, but "...you know how it is". I do know how it is, that's why I've been fucking terrified of asking for more shifts and generally talking to management more than once, because I know they heard me the first time and would just rather string me along as much as they can, and if they didn't they're just flaunting ineptitude by saying "Ah yeah, you have to keep pestering us".

I broke my little toe on Christmas day, worked 8 hours on it, had my gf's sister text me from her phone calling me a 'fucking prick' because I said I needed an hour to myself before I called her, phoned in sick the next day because I couldn't carry on limping, had everyone assume I was lying and skiving (got voted 'Pinnochio' at staff awards. Haha), just fuck this fucking place man. I try but if I act normal everyone thinks I'm faking things, and if I give in to it I become a bawling wreck who struggles to leave the house. I mean, I should be able to get enough work to keep me alive, I'm good at what I do and I know my city well, but I've worked for this company on and off for 4 years, have never had a disciplinary, didn't call in sick or take a holiday for my first year, like it's obviously a horrible company and the majority in the industry hate it, and hopefully this will result in a steady day job, but like I have tried right? I think I’ve tried but I never know, I never know if I could give more, and if I could give everything then I wouldn’t be depressed, but if I am depressed then I need to acknowledge my limits, but one can’t be bound by limits…is it ok to think like this? Should I be ashamed of not having the confidence to pressure people to get things done? Everyone seems to think that that’s how things should be done.

I’m not even sure if I’m asking for advice at this point. I obviously can’t stay there after this, I just didn’t know what to do after I left the venue today. It just feels like I’m always going to get fucked around there. I can't face having to go through this morning again.

You could've done with condensing all that. There are a few comments I can make on key points but I'm not sure if I followed your train of thought:

>the GM explained that he no longer trusted me as a result of initial circumstances and missed meetings

Well then you can no longer work there. Simple. You're fired but they don't want to do it direct because it would be a hassle.

This is for the best considering how employees are treated. You may have even needed this kick up the arse and will be much happier at a new place even if its yet more bar work. I mean 4 fucking years doing the same low-end bar job.

As for the women in your life:
>she said that before she'd received that she'd been composing a text saying that we should take a break.

I'm sorry to have to break this to you but its over. Let her go because she feels guilty about doing it with the position you are in right now.

As for your mother she was a dick but then she is only human. She loves you unconditionally but she will be unbearable cunt on occasion. Its what mothers do.

What's the best way to harvest human sweat? I was thinking a plastic costume like this, with a split around the crotch (sealed at the edges with something sticky) so you can use the bathroom. There's a vacuum pump extracting the liquid from the costume as it's generated, with a filter to remove dead skin and other crap. Obviously you'd be in a hot room, on a treadmill.

According to a website which provides no citations whatsoever
>the average person aggressively working out perspires about 0.7 to 1.5 liters per hour.
and some random water-related website says a five minute shower uses 45 litres, so a properly harvested human can provide just over enough water to shower in before it totally collapses.

A couple of years ago I came out as gay. I'm in my mid-twenties and it was a massive relief to finally realize and admit something that I've known deep down for a long time, and to be accepted for it.

But I can't stand 99% of the gay people I meet. I can't stand the lesbians who can't go a day without mentioning they're gay, or the people that get super offended over a perceived slight to their gayness, or the super-fags that prance around like fairies and scream bloody murder and homophobia to anyone who looks at them funny. It feels like everyone around me is faking it, or encouraging some sort of identity that doesn't need encouragement. I fucking hate Pride.

I don't understand what there is to be PROUD of. I am a sexual deviant. I'm not hurting anyone, and I'm lucky to live in a time where I'm free to love someone of the opposite sex openly without being thrown in jail or executed. But the fact is I have a sexual deviancy, and although I'm accepting of it, I'm not PROUD of it. I want people to accept this problem of mine with compassion and understanding, but I don't want to traipse along with a bunch of oversexualised attention seekers throwing glitter over themselves and defining their identity by where they like to stick things in bed.

I hate it. I really hate it. It all makes me want to regress back to being straight and unhappy, just so I can be free of this embarrassment and LGTBQ++++ bullshit.

We've come a long, long way from homosexuality being 'the love that dare not speak its name', and more and more I think we should go back

If anything he sounds like the halfway house you get when you cross the deep seated, internalised self-hating gay of the homophobic 1950s with today's largely liberal acceptance of the LGBT community. He's still in the closet - but not wanting to kill himself because of it - however he does intensely resent anyone who's managed to do what he can't and be glad they've left the closet. Interesting one.

Why should that be self-loathing? If there was a heterosexual pride day where all the big burly men went around showing off their muscles and attention seeking over how masculine and hetero they were, I think I'd hate them. I don't need to just imagine either, they exist, they're what Americans call "bros". Everyone hates them.
The whole "limp-wristed fairy" persona is important in the history of homosexuals struggling for acceptance but it is absolutely an affectation and there's no reason why someone can't legitimately find it off-putting without it being a symptom of repressed self-hatred for internet amateur psychologists to diagnose.

I always had the notion that the grass in Britain's Anglo ex-colonies was a somewhat more lustrous shade of green, particularly for skilled tradesmen and the like, but lately I've heard the opposite; that the new world isn't a shangri-la for disgruntled British tradesmen.

A skilled tradesman who earns £30k a year in the UK would expect to earn roughly $50-60k a year doing the same job in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. Even if you go back to pre-Brexit exchange rates, it seems like the guy earning $60k would be in a better position, especially if you assume that house prices would be cheaper because of more lebensraum.

Apparently some of these assumptions stand on wonky ground. I've heard that when you account for costs of living and mortgaging an average house, earning £30k outside of London will take you further than $60k a year outside of Toronto, Auckland, and Sydney. Is there any truth to that?

OP,

I've paid 18 quid for a bottle of beer in Brisbane. Nothing special mind, just a beer. It is fucking dear out there, especially for electronics.

That said I live in one of the most expensive cities in the world and could get by and lead a healthy, happy life for 10k, I just use my noggin and find the cheap places to eat and drink.

Why isn't Economics a mandatory subject at Key Stage 3 and 4 yet? Everyone in the UK is by definition a part of the economy, and I would say that having a knowledge of how it works and your place in it is essential in today's society.

It could start off by talking about personal finance - things like basic budgeting, the myriad of options for personal banking, how loans and mortgages work. From here, pupils could be taught about the finances of small to large businesses, and the ways this differs from that of an individual. Finally, pupils would be given an overview of the macroeconomic principles of how many businesses and individuals interact in markets, and how domestic markets form part of the international picture.

Looking back on my pre- A-level education, all this stuff seems like a pretty gaping hole. A large part of my personal knowledge comes from having business-minded parents but not everyone has that privilege, and knowing how to budget and save are apparently skills severely lacking in today's society. I'm aware that a fraction of personal finance is taught in mathematics, but it is a very small fraction and one that would surely be better split-off so that maths itself can be about maths and not simply numerics with a pound-sign in front of it.

The main problem I have with economics isn't that the models are inaccurate, it's that the models are implemented by financiers and politicians who have zero appreciation for their context as nice but ultimately useless mathematical formulae. These people cherry-pick the economics models that fit their agenda, sing them as gospel and subsequently refuse to acknowledge any evidence or alternative models that prove them wrong.

It's not the science itself, but the people who misuse it. Now that I think about it, this is a good argument in OP's favour. People won't see through the bullshit unless they are taught to.

I get what you're saying, but really only in particular sciences such as terrestrial physics, chemistry, materials science and cell biology can phenomena be practically isolated in a lab. Once you get to say evolutionary biology, environmental science, geology, astrophysics, cosmology or parts of sociology phenomena cannot be isolated in this way, yet they are for the most part still considered sciences because they follow the scientific method.

Fundamentally, the argument over whether economics is a science or not depends on how it is approached - if it is approached using the scientific method, it is by definition a science. If it is approached in other ways, it isn't.

My brother has a PhD in economics from the top-ranked Econ department in the country (last time I checked).

In America it's mandatory for anyone in business/engineering and I think mathematics.
What's interesting about Econ to me is how quickly it gets extremely mathematical. It's cool, uses a ton of theoretical math that no one besides physicists care to use. But for that reason I don't think it should be taught to everyone. Technical concepts ain't everyone's bag and it can get misconstrued (like it often is in my country).
I think statistics would be a much more worthwhile subject to make mandatory for everyone and I don't know why it's not. Econometrics is just statistics after all, so i think it would help people interpret information much more wisely.

my best friend is 22 and has the worst diet of anyone I've ever met.

all he eats is white bread, chips, sausages, tomato ketchup, mild cheese and white rice with fried chicken, if he eats at all, and he has like 4 sugars in every cup of tea he drinks

I don't see him changing this of his own accord, so, how long does he have before he kicks it?

At 22 he is still a child yet too old to respond well to pressure without it feeling emasculated. Give it a few years and his tastebuds will learn to love vegetables by themselves, I know because I was like that owing to how my parents eat.

Maybe if he's ever around your place you can offer to make him a dinner/lunch and introduce him to some proper food. Something like chickpea and lentil dhal on toast is nutritious and simple enough for him to make at home. Lead by example.

>>12252
>None of that is bad food you mad armchair hippy.

I'm pretty sure chips count as bad food and I say that as someone who shaves his armpits. The fact that his concept of fruits and vegetables is ketchup could also pose health issues given his obsession with white food already indicates some deficiencies.

There are no bad foods, but there are bad diets. OP's mate is looking at a ~7 year reduction in life expectancy based on his diet, assuming he doesn't get scurvy in the mean time. Diets high in vegetables reduce the risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease independent of caloric intake - fat people who eat lots of veg live longer than fat people who don't.

>>12249

If he's from a very deprived background where eating that sort of diet is the norm, then he'll probably grow out of it in time. Learning to enjoy unfamiliar flavours requires repeated tasting, so I'd gently encourage him to try different foods whenever you have the opportunity.

If he had a reasonably normal upbringing, then the odds are fairly good that he has a minor eating disorder - avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID). If you're in contact with his parents, you might want to have a word with them and express your concerns. You could also give the BEAT helpline a ring.

In my experience of being a student, most people that age eat a bad diet partly through laziness and partly through lack of experience. They leave home never having had to cook for themselves before, and they end up getting into the habit of cooking the same things all the time. Most people grow out of it naturally over a few years.

OP's friend's diet appears to be restrictive rather than lazy. Living on takeaways, tins and ready meals is lazy but normal. These foods aren't particularly healthy, but they're reasonably varied and flavourful.

Unless I'm getting the wrong end of the stick, OP's friend seems to eat nothing but a handful of very bland foods. From the image, I assume that OP is implying that his friend is a very picky eater and refuses to eat foods outside of his comfort zone; the phrase "if he eats at all" suggests that his friend has poor meal habits or may be avoidant of food in general.

I could be completely wrong, but I see a description of someone with a disordered relationship to food, not just laziness. Perhaps OP can elaborate on exactly what his friend will and won't eat. Will he eat a normal meal in a restaurant or from a takeaway? Does he regard many normal foods as disgusting? Would he rather go hungry than eat something outside of his usual menu?

Ideally by going picking with someone who knows their stuff, but failing that by grabbing a decent book on the topic and really digging in (my recommendation still goes to Roger Phillips' seminal tome Mushrooms). Unfortunately there's quite a learning curve to scale if you're going to go it alone - you'll need to be doubly cautious with what you pick. Learning about the deadly poisonous ones is probably a good start, if for no other reason than that doing so should help put a healthy dose of fear into you. Learning to identify the killers will also teach you some terms, habitats, and basics of genera. I'll be lazy and point you to >>10025; as a quick litmus test, if you aren't confident in identifying the difference between those, then don't go eating anything you pick. Over the years I've derived a lot of fun (and food) from mushrooms as a hobby, but you can't half-arse it. Most of the folklore strategies for identifying safe mushrooms are dangerously inaccurate, and even advice that's good in one country can be bad in another.

It's also not really the best time of year anyway. You might find some St George's around (and they're pretty easy to find and identify), but autumn time is the real season for it.
