I just said something exceptionally shitty to one of my good friends. Technically, he asked me why my girlfriend hates him so much, and I gave him an honest answer: that he doesn't have a job, isn't in school, and just talks about getting drunk and high all the time.
He responded that that was silly, as "school is for retards", "jobs are for schmucks" and "getting drunk and high is the best". He hasn't really talked to me since, should I not have been such a dick?

How do I fucking deal with kids? Students more specifically. Age range is 13-14.
I'm a preservice teacher doing my prac. I specialised into senior education but got stuck in a REALLY bad school with REALLY retarded kids who are UNFUCKING manageable.
These are year 9s age 13-14 who can't fucking read and write, type with 2 fingers, and won't shut the fuck up. Any material is 'too hard' and they can't even do basic fucking things like percentages.
Right now I'm so fed up with this fucking prac I'm about to quit. I've been teaching for 5 years before this but only asian kids 15+ (who are angels compared to this lot).
Nothing fucking works. There aren't any disciplinary procedures in place at the school, my supervisor is fucking useless and doesn't explain shit, and they have told me I am 'at risk of failing'.
So tell me /adv/, what the hell should I do to get these kids to shut up and do their fucking work?
Pic related. What I want to do to these kids.

So, I am not really sure what to do...I am way to insecure about myself, and anything based on my appearance and it is really hard to be able to accept that not everyone will manipulate me or lie to me all the time. I find my insecurity about my appearance as well really affects my relationship sometimes, and it's alot more than me thinking I'm fat, its like, I cant even deal with having a guy I'm with look at porn if it is say, a specific person or something because it ends up making me feel absolutely horrible and like I'm not good enough...I know its really irrational but I honestly would like to figure out a solution to help me overcome besides see a therapist, because that never works for me....
>was bullied all through school, like squishing against sides of the hallway yelling fat names at me, guys actually beat me up and i had hair falling out from when people pulled it
>Always was called fat and ugly
>now the only problem i have with guys is that they just say whatever they can to get in my pants, which to me obviously doesn't mean shit about my appearance.
Pic related, its me
I just need a little help thats all,..I want to be happy about myself, with more than just appearance and feel like I can trust my boyfriend even though I know I can..
About to go into rehab

So my girlfriend of 5 years broke up with me a few days ago, it's been an intensely painful experience so far, I thought this girl was going to be my wife and have my children, so Im a bit of a wreck. I've been abusing alcohol to a dumb extent and harmed myself last night. I'm having lunch with my parents in Perth as I write this and when we finish here I'm going into some kind of mental rehab, before I enter a doctor is going to assess me and I'm hoping he will give me some form of medication to sedate my pain. Is there a drug that will make me feel happy and stop the pain? And It must be a legal drug that the doctors will give me, what do I ask for and what should I avoid saying? Picture is me two nights ago
i hate being crazy

I blow up over nothing and act completely insane, and then I worry so much about what I've done and what everyone thinks of me. I'm bipolar, and sometimes I do really crazy things, and feel ashamed for weeks or months or years. I don't want to say, "Sorry, I'm just crazy, I'm figuring out my meds," because that is embarrassing. I just want to fade away from everyone's memories, and I want someone to talk to that understands how crazy I am and accepts me anyway. I stopped talking to my friends because they can't stand me and I don't want to be "that person", but then I AM that person to every other new person and it's like I probably shouldn't even be allowed to interact with other people at all.
I feel so ashamed, I just wish I could die.

So I'm trying to not be a piss ass retard by making an attempt to better myself and fight my ADHD, OCD, and I'm looking to stop procrastinating with everything. I have a lot of schoolwork, I do my schooling online, and I need to get it done relatively soon. I'm not looking for help to do my schoolwork, assuming I could get my ass on that shit I can do it, but I'd like some help with tips on how to focus better, be less of a scatter brained ignoraneous, and just all around succeed. I'll be dumping some life hack images that I have in the hopes that someone can drop relevant helpful images, URLs that I should read up on, and practices that I need to make into a hobby.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
I'm dumb and need help being a better person in regards to not being so ADHD; help concentrating and not procrastinating in general.

I started a thread last night about my fear of potentially losing my closest friends because I don't enjoy partying like they do, or more specifically, I'm afraid to try drugs and I don't want to grow apart from them by being the only one who doesn't get high. Having resolved to at least try to get over my discomfort and make an informed decision about trying euphoriants, I've decided I want to try being around my friends while they are high to become more comfortable with the idea, and if I become confident enough and feel comfortable, I'll try taking something while they are around me and not high.
This probably won't be particularly soon, but in the meantime, I can research drugs clinically all I want, but that won't help me really understand the appeal, safety, and culture of recreational drug use. I'd be pleased if anyone could share their own positive (or even negative) experiences with drug use, or offer advice you don't really get from reading some clinical article about a substance on the internet. I'm hearing a lot of "drugs are awesome" but not a lot of "this is why I like to get high, sometimes this happens, this is good and this is bad about this drug, etc".
Thanks in advance; I was really nervous about this last night but I feel a lot better after talking to everyone. The people of /adv/ are great.

I met this asian girl who was here on a work visa when I was working at a resort. She instantly liked me, but I didnt move on her until 3 weeks later and she said that she didnt want to just be a one night stand, so we hooked up that night and she said that she did have a bf at that time but didnt really like him that much.
After that we were together but she asked me if id cheat on her for at least a whole week and I had to keep saying no. She also wanted to keep the relationship secret from other workers there at the time.
one day i was supposed to take her back to my house when I left the resort, but my car was broken down, so I said id find a ride back and she thought I was ignoring her and going to go by myself, so she went to this really old guys worker apartment and didnt come back until night time. she was gone 6 hours and said he wouldnt let her leave and they drank alcohol and watched movies. she cried and said she was so sorry she made me miss my ride and stuff.
we broke up right before she left back to her country, but then a year later we were still talking on facebook and we got together again, and when she came back she started saying how in love with me she was and i was the only one in her heart, and she asked if I wanted to have kids, and if we might ever get married, but then said she was uneasy about bringing it up because she said I might think she just wanted to get to stay in the U.S. that way.
she has been in europe now for two months tourist and we keep in touch but Im worried about trusting her. What do I do?
