Career prospects with a non-acohol DUI
6 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Over the weekend I got pulled over for old plates. I had the current plates in the car. I give all my license and registration to the cop. It all checks out. He says he smells weed in the car. I had weed and a grinder.
Long story short, he charges me with possession, paraphernalia, and an DUI (I blew a 0.000 and was not drunk, but he claimed I was "impaired" and gave me a urine test).
I have a lawyer and he thinks there might be a case there. In the meantime, as I wait two weeks for the urine results, I am planning for worst case scenarios and treating this incident as a serious wake up call.
I understand that a DUI ruins your life if you're in the like ..... trucking business.
I am a straight-A first year graduate student with a full-tuition waiver scholarship and graduate assistantship. I will NOT lose my scholarship or position.
My career plans involve getting a PhD immediately after this degree or perhaps going to law school. As these charges are all first offenses, and I don't plan on getting anymore, I gather that they will NOT affect my admissions chances to PhD programs. Funding maybe, but if I did my PhD at my current school then I am sure it would be fully funded.
If I do a PhD then by time I am looking for jobs this arrest will have been at least 3-5 years behind me. I understand that this limits my prospects for government work and stuff that needs security clearances.
So I want to know how DUIs have affected the career prospects of educated professionals who have not started their careers. Anyone who works in government, academia, the private sector, anything like that.
I also wonder if employers/society will view a MARIJUANA-related DUI than an alcohol-related one.
Is it ok to jerk off to this sometimes?

I need some advice about a girl. We work for the same company in different offices, 700 miles apart. We were talking a lot over our company chat (we're in the same department, and despite being remote she was my boss for a short period) and met at the Christmas party. We instantly hit it off, I went back to hers after, got intimate. I felt a strong connection and she said she did too. We've been talking since and I planned to meet her at Easter, she's been hinting at more and more.
A few days ago, she said she's been fooling around with a guy friend of hers a few times and she felt terrible. This guy has liked her for ages, initially she didn't want to do anything with him but they work in the same office so there's like daily exposure there. i instantly felt any connection was just over on my part but she says she doesn't want it to affect anything and regrets it.
I said to her that I don't want to talk for a bit, and now we're here. She says good morning each morning and i say I don't want to talk. I got messages today saying she was miserable. I'm meeting some guys from work at Easter when I go home, and we share a lot of work friends. She's going to be there. I'm not entirely sure how I should act or feel. At the moment it's just a constant numbness. I really did like her, maybe i still do?, but I never showed it, but now, to be honest, I don't know if I know her at all.
Any advice, or similar experiences?

I've been a contractor at a design firm for over 2 years, and I just received a "pre-employment consumer report" in the mail about myself.
Apparently someone at the company requested a background check for any criminal records on me, specifically, the CFO. It's a really small company, so I've talked to this guy before and he's super nice.
I guess I'm just paranoid, but I'm kinda nervous as to why they'd be checking up on me after two years. I'm on very friendly terms with the whole company (it's very small), so part of me wants to ask what's up, but I'm not sure if that's a bad idea.
What is the point?

I've got a bit of a life-problem
Let me first just set the scene
>I'm a masters student at a prestigious university
>I'm torn between going on to working in a high-paying profession or doing PhD and then trying my luck with international organisations
>I lift 3 times a week and I've gotten to what /fit/ considers 'strong', diet properly, cycle everywhere, try to take care of my health generally
>I've been through long bouts of loneliness and self doubt but I've managed to make some 'normie' friends who I go out and do things with
>I'm not unattractive, just average looking guy
>Don't really have much luck with women, still a virgin, (combination of not approaching women and not clinching it with potential girls) but working on it
And yet, what is the point? I don't feel particularly driven by money, I'm happy living very frugally, I can't foresee myself having a family, being PhD and then a very highly skilled person seems nice but its a great deal of work and what is the point?
I'm doing trying my best to self-improve, but I am not really sure as to why or to what end? Conversely I don't feel content, it's like I'm desperately searching for a point where I'll be content, but I imagine such a state being completely elusive

Before you post a question, check here to see if it's already been answered
Keep your questions short and sweet for more answers.
And please no derailing arguments.
Avoid asking these common questions:
>Do girls/guys like <insert specific look>?
Some do, some don't. Our answers are not going to help you.
>I'm shy and afraid of people/rejection. What do I do?
Think positive, and get over it by practicing and exposing yourself to it, little by little, step by step. There is no single magical act/moment that will instantly change you forever. It takes hard work, time, and effort.
>I like someone. What do I do?
Ask them out.
>How can I tell if someone likes me?
Ask them out.
>Where do I meet girls/guys?
Anywhere outside. Or online.
>Is my body part big/small enough?
>Am I short/tall enough?
Most likely. Preferences differ.
>Someone did something insignificant. What does it mean?
Nothing significant. Stop overthinking it.
Alternative answer: we don't fucking know.
>XYZ happened. Did I fuck it up with this guy/girl?
Maybe, maybe not. We're not in their head, we don't know. No amount of your walls of text will fix that.
>This person did something that hurt my feelings. Why do guys/girls do this?
Because shit people are shit people. It's not a gendered thing
>Would you date a virgin?
As long as they aren't insecure about it. Complexes are a total turn-off.
>Someone has made it abundantly clear they're no longer interested in me. Do I still have a chance?
>Where do I go on a first (or subsequent) date?
Pick one or more of the following: coffee, lunch, dinner, drinks, ice cream, movies, zoo, aquarium, museum, art gallery, <activity in your city>
>That one guy who keeps asking about cuddling in platonic friendships
No one wants to cuddle you. Stop asking.

Why do parents forgive one sibling for everything, and the other for nothing?
>Be relatively affluent family, given every opportunity, father and mother somehow fluked being pretty well off despite lack of college degrees or significant holdings/estates etc
>Mum and Dad love sports, outdoors etc, my Dad always wanted to be a sports star
>Younger brother is football prodigy
>Basically my childhood is my Dad hanging out with my bro and buying me a PC because I suck at sports
>After school my brother does not become Maradona, Dad starts drinking religiously
>Best he can get is a low tier club because politics basically, not his fault
>Decides to stop playing football, and get a normal job. Dad resents this and gives him never ending shit for being a failure. Even though it was a decent enough job and paid fairly okay.
>Brother fucks up job because basically our Dad has taught him nothing but sports his entire life. Fucked up by basically telling his boss the truth and not being a yes man, when he really needed to be a yes man.
>Brother starts drinking and dealing drugs. Dad's response is to drink more and take jabs at him.
>Whole situation comes to a head when the police get a warrant to search our house for drugs. Dad is fucking full drunk mode when police show up, mother in tears. I end up having to convince the police there was nothing else in the house and it wasn't worth their time tearing the place apart.
>Brother leaves country to go to the US, because he needs help. Family there. /1
