  • What are your millenial problems?

    I'm a female millenial in Connecticut for reference. I'm 26 and still live at home. On my 26th birthday it hit me hard that soon to be 3 years after college I still live at home. 2016 graduate.

    I'm a female millenial in Connecticut for reference. I'm 26 and still live at home. On my 26th birthday it hit me hard that soon to be 3 years after college I still live at home. 2016 graduate. I pay all of my personal bills. Healthcare, dental, student loans, cell phone bill, toiletries and food. I even pay my parents cable bill, and I pay for my Mom's movie tickets, and I take her to New York. My sister and I take our parents on at least one small vacation a year now. Something like one of the casino's. I don't make enough to move out though. I make under 28000 in a very expensive part of the state. I would need at least 2 roommates to get out. I work at a nonprofit, and even get overtime, but I don't have what is considered a good job. I studied Journalism. I know it's not the most practical, but I'm not smart enough for finance or the medical field. I've watched friends stay in college until even now, 8 years after they started, chasing a practical career they aren't smart enough to achieve. Things that involve math and science when we were all in low level math and science classes in high school. I also don't have a car. I couldn't even afford a license until adulthood. College made my schedule tight so I didn't get it until 25.

  • Have you ever not made the cut for something?

    I didn't make the cut for the play in 6th grade. I remember moving on, but also wishing I could have made it. I had really liked acting, even if I was only an extra in scenes. We had too many kids for everyone to make it though. I made it in 7th and 8th grade though. I didn't make the cut for the volleyball team in 9th grade. That... show more

We had too many kids for everyone to make it though. I made it in 7th and 8th grade though. I didn't make the cut for the volleyball team in 9th grade. That didn't bother me. I had tried out on whim. I did feel bad about my parents spending $25 on tryout fees, and then my friend felt bad she made it, but I didn't. I told her not to feel bad though. In 10th grade I didn't make the school play. It was the first time not everyone would make it. Seniors would make it though. I tried again in 11th grade as well. I enjoyed the tryout process both times, feeling at home there. I was devastated not to make it, but moved on and wrote for the newspaper.

  • What are the worst parts of job hunting?

    I'm casually job hunting right now. I have a job, but it doesn't pay enough. At least not for moving out on your own. I would need at least two roommates if I wanted to live in a good area.

Connecticut is expensive. A year and a half ago I was actually applying places, but then stopped. I'm 26 now. I scroll past job listings, but I get self conscious about of it's even worth it to apply. I didn't used to be like this. I just don't want to deal with interviews even though I handle them well, or trial periods, or possibly messing up on the job. I'm 2 years and 4 months into my current job so I'm pretty good with the rhythm.

    I'm a 26 year old female from Connecticut. I'm not where I want to be, but I haven't totally failed. I think. Accomplishments I received my bachelor's degree in 2016. I got my drivers license in May 2018. I always thought I would get it at 16, but I was broke then, and after that college kept me busy. For the first year after college I worked two jobs, so there wasn't any time to practice. Finally in 2018 I got it. It was my biggest shame, not having a license well past the driving age, and then it was finally over. I just wish 16 year old me would have had this. I signed up for dental insurance in 2019. Before that I only had health insurance. I adulted. Things I didn't accomplish (yet) Moving out. Especially if I could move out to New York, although living close to a train would be good enough for me. Getting a good job. I work, and thankfully it isn't retail or food service, but I'm still not making enough. I've been giving myself a pep talk lately to job hunt. Just browsing jobs to see what's out there. I haven't applied anywhere yet, because the whole job hunting process sucks, but as spring approaches I know I actually have to send out resumes.

    I'm 26 and a female from suburban Connecticut. I survived an abusive bipolar father and managed to graduate college 3 years ago and get a drivers license. I function. I work. I was once an extremely quiet kid who just wanted the hitting to stop. Now I'm an adult dealing with the aftermath of being raised by a crazy person. Self esteem issues, not feeling adult enough, among other things. People tell me I'm mature, but inside I feel stuck at age 12. The childhood experiences I wish I had were normal outings with friends or even my family. My parents didn't have a lot of money so activities were limited. I also wasn't allowed to sleep over other kids houses. I couldn't really have kids over either. My Dad was crazy and it wasn't safe to bring people around. I did have some beautiful kid moments. Some kids my age in my younger cousins neighborhood let me hang out with them when I came over. I didn't date growing up. Something I was extremely ashamed of at the time. Every year I'd think I could change things, especially in high school, but when I was single again I just kind of accepted it. This sound awful, but I can talk about my Dad hitting me and be completely fine, but admitting I didn't date during those years is a constant shame I carry. What childhood experiences do you wish you had?

I couldn't afford a license for years, and then college made my schedule bad, but now I have it, and at least that shame has been lifted from me. The negatives are I'm a college grad, but I still haven't landed that good job yet Most of my generation is in the same boat, but the good news is I have been able to work at a nonprofit at a resume builder job. I plan on job hunting soon, so I have hope that I can make my situation better. I know I'm still young, but I also feel like I'm running out of time. I definitely had some great experiences so far, so I haven't totally wasted my 20's, but they are going fast.

  • Anyone else use Yahoo answers when their feeling lost?

He slapped me around, pulled my hair, and shoved me into walls. He was very angry that he had two daughters, and constantly told us how evil women are. DCF should have been involved from day 1. Anyone having a child while mentally ill should be flagged. It doesn't mean the kid will automatically be taken away. It just means DCF would be aware of a bad situation. Most mentally ill people abuse their children.

I remember playing a football game with some neighborhood kids at my cousins house. I was 11 or 12. We called it kill the receiver. It was edited though. The boys didn't hit my sister and I as hard. There was the summer after sixth grade when my sister, the same kids, and some extra kids played soccer. A perfect summer day. I liked being in the school play in 7th and 8th grade. I remember learning to skateboard. My cousins had a skateboard with no grip tape. I eventually moved up to my own board with all the parts. There's more of course, but those stick out the most.

It was a boys club, and my middle aged manager checked out girls in front of me, even when I told him I didn't like it. He didn't just say people were hot. He was vulgar. He thought it was funny that I objected. He singled me out, and other employees felt like he did too. He always yelled at me, and it made him feel good. The pay was awful, and no one protected part-timers so I had deal with all of this. To be fair I trained in a different Connecticut store, and they were way better, and were actually nicer to me because I was a girl. The other store was full of gentlemen.
