Just a thread to freely brag about anything just because why not. No consequences here, this thread is purely just for fun. Can be anything like possessions, body, things that happened to you, or just something you're proud about and want to boast.

I guess I'll start. Today I studied last minute for an exam but managed to ace it!

No. 69331

lmao bless you anon for the thread

I'm so proud of how my skin has been lately; so clear and bright without much effort. I don't wear foundation anymore and still get asked how's my skin so smooth.
It's a nice change after struggling with dull skin with blemishes for a while.

Hopefully I'll come back to brag about the rest of my health being good, one day.

I'm really fucking hot. 3 years ago I started taking care of myself (Working out, eating right, doing skincare, dressing better, etc) and now I feel like I'm constantly glowing. I get ton's of compliments and attention and whatnot and I love it. I used to be overweight with purple hair, acne ridden and my wardrobe looked like it belonged on What not to Wear. I was a mess, and now I'm the polar opposite.

I speak 5 languages. I'm from a country that generally only speaks one (so I didn't have the privilege of speaking multiple before the age of 3, I learned them all starting from age 12). They're not all similar languages either (because Latin-based languages are really easy to pick up once you know one). Two of the languages I speak are uncommon so I'm really happy to be keeping them alive. I think it's really important to learn languages which are struggling and whose countries don't have the funding places like France and Spain have to pump into the governments of foreign countries to put French and Spanish on school syllabuses.

Also I have three degrees that I'm really proud of.

Without getting too specific, I do blue-collar trade work. I'm still in "training" and have 2 more years to go until I start making the full wage.

It has it's downsides though. The industry is very sensitive to the economy - when it's good you can make a lot of money, but last year my company had large layoffs and a wage decrease, which is part of the reason I like having a large savings, lol

No. 69866

So jealous at your weight. I'm the same age but losing weight has always been so hard for me. Have you always been thin or did you lose a lot of weight at some point?

My brag
I am really good at romantic relationships. Every one of my friends is or has been in shitty/bad/abusive relationships. Being in a abusive relationship was no fault of their own, but the bad and shitty ones where. No boundaries, no good communication, no listening and compromising. I feel it's not very hard to have a good relationship with someone, but I guess it is.

That was it, all other aspects of my life are not worth bragging about

No. 69878

I don't know if you mean 'using' as in spending or investing but the former is stupid and the latter can be done with a high interest savings account. At one point I was making $200 a month in interest with 100k savings. I didn't invest it because I was saving for a deposit on a unit, which I have now done. Now I have 60k sitting in an account offsetting my mortgage while I have free access to it.

And the bragworthy thing about money isn't just what you do with it, it's the fact that you worked hard and saved it effectively. Either way it's sad to try and downplay achievements in a bragging thread.

Hi anon, yeah i am from the UK!
and i basically googled and emailed every related company i could find with my CV weather they advertised they were hiring or not.
I let them know first off that it is a PAID internship and it doesn't have to be more than minimum wage.
Places in my area seem keen to hire students because its cheap work and the company gets into the Unis good books.

If you need it by May/June i'd say really start looking properly now because it took my uni up to 4 months to get everything finalised with paperwork. Yours might be better than mine with that though.

Thanks to college I stopped being so shy and socially awkward because it made me more confident and less sheltered by my fucked up parents and I learned that after high school, people calm the fuck down and stop being catty bitches so everyone became more approachable and nicer. I also speak English and Japanese much better than before college, even though I'm not fluent in Japanese yet, but I can have simple conversations and now it's mostly a matter of learning more vocabulary.

Also, I may be ugly, or at least not fit into current beauty standards, but at least my hair looks great and I'm not even putting any effort into maintaining them. So I feel like it compensate for what makes me ugly. I'm also glad I can eat as much crap and junk food as I want and not gain that much weight. I like being thin and having a flat chest. And I look younger than I am, which was a bad thing before but now that I'm in my early 20s I'm finally seeing the positive aspects of it.

I used to be full of so much self hatred for my body I would cry while looking in the mirror and stare at photos of my skinnier friends and just be stuck in a spiral of self loathing. But all that is behind me now. Food is a source of happiness for me and I'm not eating a burger and fry every day, but I let myself enjoy life and all the good food that comes along with it.

Anyway, I'm bloated as hell right now, on my period, and ate some pizza today but the scale still was lower than I thought it would be, so I'm happy

i feel really proud about a book i'm finally close to finishing since i worked really hard on it. i spent six years working on it as much as life allowed me, and i spent exactly half my life keeping my creative writing obssession a secret from my family and friends because whenver i told anyone i would get no support, and my fam trashes me for throwing my academic and social life away on something as retarded as wanting to become a legit published author.

i feel like i could finally start living for myself and answering to nobody if the books sells - and maybe it sells well, who knows, right?? give me financial independence or give me death

anyway it's a YA thriller and i'm writing it in english because my country is shit and i have no future here. i'm really meticulous about finding the right agent for it and i plan on querying the top NYC agents first because maybe i get lucky and land my dream agent.

i feel ashamed to talk about all of this irl because it comes off as unrealistic and conceited of me but i am just so proud of the last ten years of sleepless nights working away on complex stories and characters and so fucking what if i dream of hitting the NY Times bestseller list or being on talk shows? it keeps me sane, and it keeps me patient.

even if it took me another ten years to actually get published, i don't care

goddamn i love writing

a few years ago i started caring about looking attractive, tired of being the ugly weeaboo shut-in of the family. i studied up on current fashion/music/makeup/shoes/hair/etc. and started going to a gym with a greatly improved diet. i now am the most attractive out of my entire family, get compliments on my natural good looks and metabolism, and get stares and hit on constantly from men and women i would never have had a chance with 5 years ago. doing this, my confidence has improved greatly. it has made me more willing to be outgoing and to have fun like i never did in my high school and college years. i can talk to complete strangers and look them in the eye now without getting anxiety. it has helped me move away from stifling toxic fandom and geek culture in general.

plus im a great artist and i barely practice. every piece of art i make i love. im not a hugely popular artist, but i love my shit regardless. i can also sing pretty well. ok im done now back to feeling bad for bragging.

My bf never really buys me shit, besides food/if we go out to eat, he never buys me presents. I always go all out for Christmas and his birthday and expect/get little in return.

This year he got a new credit card and has been going crazy with and and getting me nice gifts I really like. Earlier today I saw a cute backpack online and showed him (I always show him things, I like a second opinion) and he bought it for me with no hesitation, as well offered me his card when I saw cute boots I liked.

I fucked myself up at 23 and maxed out 5 credit cards with this logic. A good rule of thumb is to only use the cards for small things you can pay off in 1-3 months, or for emergencies. Once you get near the card limit buying gifts and toys and then you realize you need it for something like a car repair, you’re screwed. Credit cards play on instant gratification and delayed consequences because people are bad at those things.

So true. Hell, I didn't even have a childhood because my mom went all out with her 10 credit cards and got us into serious poverty. I wouldn't go anywhere near the things, much wiser to just stash away a percentage of your salary every month in an old sock underneath your mattress.

I put $5,000 in a Roth IRA account last week. It doesn't feel like much, but it's the most I feel comfortable doing at the moment. It also made my dad really proud of me, which means a lot. I don't really know why he's proud, though. I guess because it shows responsibility (that I have saved up enough to put money away for later without it putting me in a financial bind) or because it shows I'm thinking about my future… regardless, even at 25, it feels good to have your parent's approval of something you're doing in life.

There have been 2 crazy amazing things happening in my life recently

1) I actually lost 50 lbs and feel totally motivated to keep going. I grew up fat and never saw myself slimming down until it just "clicked" one day. And since that day about 6 months ago Ive been losing weight and feeling amazing. Which IMO has lead to the second thing…

2) I got a new boyfriend and our relationship has been stellar. I know new relationships tend to have that "puppy love" effect but this has been so different from the other relationships I have been in (frankly when I was heavier my self esteem was absolute shit so I wound up dating some real losers….)This guy pursued me*, treats me beyond right, and not to mention is strikingly handsome and has a personality very compatible with my own.

The whole experience has just been a huge blessing in my life.

*I'm not trying to hate on straight relationships where the girl does the pursuing, that works great for a lot of folks, it was more of a personal hangup on my end that made his pursuing of me notable

Thank you ^^
I've been doing things the "old fashion way", just eating less and moving more you know? I've cut back big time on fast food and junk food in general, I went from having it a few times a week to a few times a month. I try and reduce carbs where I can, and drink around 2-3 liters of water a day (the water REALLY helps!) And if I have a total cheat day where I eat a huge amount of calories (like 3,000+) I eat really light the next day. On an average day I have around 1,000-1,200 calories but I'm not super intense about counting them, I estimate a lot of the time and it's worked well so far.

No. 75860

>>75859 Sounds pretty fab anon.

Drinking a good amount of water is what everyone says, but it works so well. I've upped my drinking water from, like, 250ml a day + tea and coffee to 2+ litres of just water, and even putting my weight aside my skin has gotten SO much better.

Like, instead of being generally a bit blemish-y and rough and spotty my skin is soft and smooth with the occasional spot, and I know when my hormones are a bit more settled (I too am losing weight) it'll probably be as good as it's ever going to get. Honestly such a good idea.

I got bullied and made fun of by almost everyone, especially the boys who would act disgusted by me and the bitchy girls would always act superior to "ugly" me.

I went through a real life metamorphosis. I grew into my face, I switched to a hairstyle and color that suit me, I learnt to dress myself, I learnt makeup, I became confident. Now I am objectively prettier than all the girls who made fun of me in high school and every guy I've ever liked afterwards has been madly in love with me back. I get compliments all of the time, many guys want my attention and people on the street tell me I should model.

Get it!! People will try to downplay it (they did when I scored a 2200 back in the day on my SAT) but fuck them. 34 is a bomb score and says a lot. Don’t forget how that score reflects your general intelligence too. You most likely perform better in literacy, critical thinking, and math. So don’t think it’s the one thing that wasn’t pity/etc, it’s the culmination of a lot of skills and hard work. Maybe rethink the things you dismissed before as pity or chance. People don’t spontaneously get a great score on those things. Congratulations!! :)

So maybe a year ago everything in my life seemed to be falling apart and was awful but recently I've felt like things are going perfect but I feel like it'd be bragging to say it out loud? Like no one wants to here about your life going well because it feels in your face, right? I have a wonderful boyfriend (after breaking up with a cheater), I got a full time job, I'm continuing college (after having to put it on hold), we have our own apartment, I got my first car, and things are just financially positive right now. Sometimes I just want to scream "I finally have my life together, holy shit I'm a functioning member of society!"

My family is far from rich, so I took 3 years off after high school and have saved up my whole tuition (thanks to my mother keeping a roof over my head) so I'll never owe anyone squat. I plan to start saving again as soon as I land a job after graduation, hopefully then being able to buy a house outright in the same fashion. Fuck debt!

On a more minor note, I'm not conventionally attractive. Not a 10/10 Stacey, anyway. Yet somehow men who fit within my niche type are always the ones who awkward-flirt with me and if I were to be more forward I'm sure I could have success with them.

I've been down lately, but I'm honestly pretty fortunate in things that are very important to me and my future happiness (money, stability, and romance). Trying to make an effort to focus on the good now so I can profit from this potential I have.

Anyway, what a wholesome thread. I'm glad for all of you girls.

It feels like there are a lot of postgrad students here, somehow. I think education can get really lonely the further up you go, and you can get drawn to places like this. I actually found lolcow when I was a sad masters student and felt so at home here that I stuck around.
But that’s besides the point! Are you UK? Cos if so, they’re introducing student loans of about £25K for PhDs like they did for masters degrees - this September I think. Makes funding study suddenly seem a lot more feasible! But sorry if that’s no help.
Hope you figure it out tho anon, I’ll be cheering you on!

Nope, I am from Germany. There are several ways to do your PhD here, however, graduate schools are not that common (at least in the humanities), neither are PhD loans. I also wouldn't want that; I already took out a loan before and couldn't handle more liabilities, especially since academics won't make me rich.

I am also not sure about scholarships tbh. I'd still have to pay my insurance, wouldn't pay into pensions office, no job experience, too much freedom (for me at least, I'd probably procrastinate a lot) and I'd feel too isolated. I think it's different when you go to grad school though…

I'd prefer to work at university/in research part-time and combine it with writing my dissertation. A 100 % position in an interesting field would be even better; I'd love to work in a project that matters to me and write my dissertation about that. Those are highly competitive jobs though. I hope I will find a way! I'd like to stay in humanities, too, but most offers I got so far are in different disciplines unfortunately.

alright tbh my body is kickin. i am 5'7, 120lbs, and i have a very small waist, medium sized breasts that arent all wonky, and im "thicc" in the thighs and have a nice ass. the only thing id change are my broad shoulders. i also have awesome thick eyebrows that arent too thick. i have pretty eyes and cute freckles. i wish my posture was better and i wish i wasnt such a socially anxious person, but i think besides my mental insecurities about not being smart enough or having issues being social, i really won the genetic lottery. i dont wanna sound to braggy, but ive just recently seen my appeal. i remember always being complimented on my body (i also have a long torso that models tend to have), and on my facial features, and always having lots of people develop feelings for me, and being confused. however now i really think im truly glowing up, and my confidence is growing and i can see that i actually am what plenty of people would consider "beautiful". yuck i feel terrible complimenting myself so much in one post but it also feels good to anonymously brag because im normally a pretty humble person.

fuck yeah dude. imo the only real problem with complimenting yourself is that it's braggy and would be insensitive to do around people who don't like the way they look. but if you're able to see yourself as beautiful, you should let yourself. otherwise what the fuck is the point?

I actually finished a portfolio for submission and applied to an internship that could really be a great stepping stone for what I want to do as a career. I'm also on track to study abroad in Prague next semester at a super nice Art School and I'm super excited.

My portfolio kinda sucks cause I'm not that great at character design but the fact that I did it is a huge accomplishment for me

Fuck, I read baccalauréat in your post and I had war flashbacks.

Congrats.

>I want to be more organized at uni
It's really just a matter of good habits more than talent or anything like that. I'm sure most people told you that before but you just have to go to almost all of your classes, listen, take notes and catch asap if you miss classes. From personal experience missing too many classes is the worst thing you can do because catching takes way more time than it should.

My parents are kind enough to pay my tuition but I go to one of the cheapest Universities in the nation Not an art school and have in state tuition so each semester is only about 4K.

I'm not rich by any means, I live with my mom although I'm in uni because I can't afford to move out, and we live with just her wage which isn't bad but nothing special, I also had a part time job this year but that didn't pay well.

But I have an aunt who is super rich. She is pretty old, millionaire, widow, and with no kids. We have a great relationship with her and she takes us on trips all the time. We go to a different country every 2-3 months and always stay in fancy ass 5 star hotels and eat in the best restaurants, and go shopping in Chanel, Prada, LV etc. She pays for everything and even buys me stuff sometimes.
I have 4 Louis Vuitton and 3 Gucci bags that I never carry cause I feel bad.

We always have a great time with her, it's not like we have to endure her just to go on these trips you know, she's funny and pretty down to earth.

She even bought me a brand new car a couple months ago.

My friends know that she pays for that stuff and that I'm not rich but I still feel guilty every time I tell them I'm going somewhere, or about the car, cause I know that if I were at their place I would be a bit jealous too.

I haven’t shaved or worn makeup in over a month now. It feels so freeing to just exist in my body without the extra bullshit.

I can just wipe my eyes if I want to and nothing smudges. I feel weirdly emotionally connected to my armpit hair lmao. I don’t know. I’ve just always struggled and had this complex with being feminine, but since discovering radfem I’ve learned to appreciate my body outside of how attractive other people see me.
I’ve also gained a bit of weight which I’m really liking. My thighs have filled out a bit and I look softer overall. I’ve always restricted/been on the thinner side because I’m tall but now I don’t care if I “take up space” anymore.

I finally found an internship! It's not related to what I wanted to do at all but it's near my place so I won't have to move somewhere else and have to pay rent or anything else. It's also going to pay well (for an internship, it's still under minimum wage) so I'll be able to save money. I'll finally have a decent schedule. And since I found it way too late to graduate this month, I'll have more free months to write my paper and prepare my oral exam, so the final exam will be easier than it's supposed to be. Hopefully all of this means that I'll get my Master's degree and either will be able to travel a little abroad before settling down or get a job that pays well right after graduating. Anyway, knowing that my future manager almost hired me on the spot really helped me with my self-esteem.

That also means that since it'll start soon, I had to quit the shitty retail job I had for more than a year. I won't have to babysit my coworkers and put up with the customers' bullshit anymore.

Not related to that but I'm getting way better at applying makeup now.

Well, most girls don't see somebody demanding to be carried by them as if they're some drudge as something positive. That's so weird.

>i've had my short friends ask me to carry them before

Are you for real?
I've met several people around 5' to 5'2'' and not a single one of them liked to be picked up, much less asked for it. Usually because they get picked up by people without asking a lot because they think 'oh kek small, must fondle like toy' and basically ignore the fact that it's a person they're interacting with.
Every single one of them literally hated depending on taller people.

>i'm tall

>it's really fun. it makes me feel like a super strong amazon to carry around another adult

Again: are you for real?
I've been taller than almost everyone around me since preschool. Basically what >>99795 said. Maybe this applies to average sized girls that like to think they're tall. But just like I've never met a smaller person that likes to be handled like a fun prop that can be picked up and carried around, I haven't met a tall person that likes to be treated like a servant or they're made to carry around people just because they're smaller.
Also this bullshit about feeling like an amazon; again. This may apply to average sized girls but to someone much taller it's obviously not that big of a deal to pick up someone that much smaller?

I mean, unless it's someone like >>99756. That is a lot of weight and carrying that much flesh around would indeed make me feel strong at any height.

Short women can look thin if they're slightly underweight or of they're at the lower end of a healthy BMI, don't exaggerate. They'll look normal or think though, not skinny.

i'm 5'11" so not the tallest ever but I don't think I could ever be considered average height. It's not like tons of short girls I know have asked to be fireman carried but it has happened a few times yes. I would never just pick someone up without their permission because that's terrifying.
Not everyone is so dramatic that they think of messing around with friends as "being used as a prop" or "being treated like a servant" jfc. Do you realize how dramatic that sounds?

Idk what to tell you. I've always liked being tall and it makes me feel powerful and I have yet to twist my worldview in such a way that being tall makes me feel like a pack animal. Why choose something so convoluted and negative when you could just mentally compare your height to a model or a amazon and call it a day?

The tall one looks like she weighs less than her short friend. Sure looks "comfortable"…lol

I'm tall and have had short classmates randomly try to climb on my back without asking. Like gtfo, you're not as light and easy to lift for me as you might think. It's plain annoying.

So my current boyfriend of 7 months is a total cutie, hottest guy I've dated. I love that he is so much bigger than me and manly af, but also super gentle and sweet. When I first met him I thought he was way out of my league so I acted like I wasn't interested but a fateful night at a bar brought us together…

Anyway, today was his birthday but recently he's been pleasuring me so much my clitoris got kinda sore and I had some random cramps from that so I told him my body needs a little break. I encouraged him to take a break too, saying that it's probably going to feel so good after abstaining for a couple of days and he agreed, although I did give him a very slow bj yesterday evening. He did a small rude gesture yesterday when we were out with friends (after the bj) that prompted him to whisper in my ear that I can punish him later for that.

I got way too drunk to do anything yesterday but today I decided I would tease him. Well, I teased him to the point that he wanted to bone anyway, and it felt good too but I know that I usually don't feel any pain during sex but I will feel it later if it was too much so I was stopping him saying - hey, we wanted to take a break. Obviously I was also super horny at that moment so it was taking a lot of willpower to stop him. This stopping and going continued for a while and we both were super into it whenever we restarted.

At some point it seems he reached peak horniness. He has these super beautiful blue eyes, dark thick eyebrows, long eyelashes and very soft plump lips. And with that face having the saddest and most begging expression, after I tried to stop him again he said "But I want to cum inside of you…". No power in the world could make me stop him at that moment.

The part I'm bragging about I guess is that I never thought I would feel as loved and wanted as I do in this relationship. He is the guy of my dreams.

I'm 5'8 and I only weight 110 and this short girl who is about 5'1 and weighs more than me was trying to be uwu kawaii and jumped on my back and she really almost broke my back and we both fell to the floor.

If she physically hurts you just push back. Her short height shouldn't protect or excuse her from having to face any consequences for her behavior. She's not a child, you don't need to put up with her.

After suffering for 3 years in an unloving and abusive relationship I'm happy to say that I have a very very loving and understanding girlfriend.
We've been dating for almost five years now and we haven't had a single fight in that time. We vibe very well with each other and understand each other without words.
She helps me a lot with a lot of my insecurities and mental problems and she accepts me as I am.
We're the two bitter lesbians that eventually end up owning a hundred cats and a farm and I can't wait till we finally get to live together and maybe even marry if gay marriage is ever accepted in our country.
I'm a huge introvert with plenty mental illnesses, but she makes me feel secure every time I'm with her. She's like a lighthouse in the storm, so stable and reassuring.
I myself can't believe that I found someone like that and I often feel like I don't deserve to be this happy with someone.

i left my abusive relationship, and after a while i've finally let myself have feelings for somebody! leaving in itself is kind of a brag. he forced intimacy, literally shoved pills in my mouth and held my mouth and nose closed until i swallowed, put cigs out on me, the list goes on. i tried to leave over and over but i finally did it, and after letting myself heal i'm finally seeing somebody else.

i've never known anybody so kind. he treats me with care, but simultaneously recognizes my own strength and ability. he loves my hobbies (even though most people think they're lame) and has amazing hobbies of his own. he knew me while i was a drug addict with my abusive partner, but he doesn't hold anything against me. instead he tells me how proud he is of the strides i'm making towards a better life.

i wasn't sure what romantic love was supposed to feel like until now. i've never cared more about seeing somebody recognize their dreams. my heart is usually made of stone for the sake of protecting myself but i think i let the right one in. i didn't think i'd ever say it and mean it, but… i'm in love!

I am so happy that I got to go to London for the third time in a span of one year. My family has a lot of money and usually we go on large shopping trips. And as much as I loved that in the past, I am so happy we got to enjoy time without shopping. Taking walks and seeing parts of London we did not visit before. I only bought a few gifts for friends but appart from that it was the cutest little holiday I ever went on with my family.

We don‘t get to spend a lot of time together since everyone‘s working a lot to keep up with out lifestyle. So spending the time we‘ve got together just relaxing and having fun without spending money (appart from flights, the hotel, food, which I know is rather expensive) felt so good.

>i look younger than the ones younger than me
>i am not the fat co-worker praise jesus
Same, but do you really think it's a good thing in your case? In mine I'm not taken seriously at all because I look younger than I am so everyone assumes I'm not only younger, but also more immature until they get to know me, and that's if they try to actually get to know me. Good for you if that's not an obstacle for you, it's making me a bit hopeful in my case. I've even had the fat coworker treating me like a drooling retard because she thought for months I was barely an adult even though she's only a few months older than me and I've told her many times, shit was awkward.

Started dating my bf a week and a half ago and already he makes me so happy. The last person I dated was terrible at communication and we barely did anything physical because of that and long distance, but this guy is so sweet and attractive and I've already been in a much better mood. Don't want to get my hopes too high because this is the literal definition of a honeymoon phase, but I really do like this guy and want to make him happy as well.

I have no college degree and I am working in a field where every single one of my coworkers/peers/underlings has a degree, and I am making a good salary, on-par and even superseding other people my age who did complete their degree.

4 years ago I was in and out of inpatient psychiatric wards, no future, no passions, lonely and cracked out on shitloads of meds.

I have a beautiful apartment (kinda expensive and stressing me out a little), a bf of 2 years who is working with me to accomplish our goals, and an awesome dog (the breed I always wanted)

For the first time in awhile I feel like myself. The me before I made the bad choices. I have a great future as long as I continue to do right and work hard.

You should have to find a sharing group for girls doing the same thing, they can help your grow. create an instagram, twitter, etc with your new "thot name".

Never post with your real name, make new emails for each account so no one can search for your email or find you that way (and NEVER input your phone number on any of these sites).


Thank you! I no longer speak to those guys (still selling pics tho), but I always decline any actual "porn" seeking men, there are just truly lonely people out there who either don't have the time for real relationships or just don't want to have them so they have tons of cash to spend on you.

I'm actually working full time now in an intrenship position which has made things a bit harder but it's worth it.


I have a "thot" name, use different emails for each account I have, never speak about my personal life at all in any way, I don't have a "regular" or "private" social media at all (so no facebook usage, no instagram etc for my "actual self"), never have input phone numbers into any of these sites etc. I think these are the "biggest" ways people find out about this kind of stuff (since you can look up phone numbers and emails to find people on sites, also reverse image searching normal pics which I have seen some girls post on both their thot shit AND private shit, big nono ).

I am actually working an "actual" IRL job now that is related to my real career and no problems so far. I also regularly google my real name and real information and have never found anything related to my thotting.


joining sharing groups, posting every day on instagram and twitter, tons and TONS of posting, replying to all comments, etc. It took so much work in the beginning but once it takes off its easy to maintain.


I always wanted to try this, and since I did I am so happy about it!

I really hit the jackpot with my current partner. He's very smart and somehow has such an extreme degree of emotional intelligence that it's actually unbelievable. He's very devoted and loyal, and absolutely adores me. He's more than I could have ever asked or hoped for. His mother also just messaged me telling me that she has booked the flights for our trip soon, he comes from a well-off family who are also very emotionally mature and are very smart, caring and attentive. I've known him for about 16 months, 9 of which we've actually been together. The first night he invited me over, I wasn't anxious or anything, we had a great movie date and the next night we decided that this was really what we both had wanted so badly for so long. To this day we're still confessing how we would flirt, and it turns out we we're doing the same things. I'm just so happy I have him in my life. He's my best friend, my family, and my lover.

So, there's a person who is a really damn snowflake. She is really hypocritical (argues and gets offended over everyone and everything, while telling everyone on twitter how FRAIGLE and CARING she is, along with 'everyones opinion uwu uwuwu!!'), pretends to be all uwu-uguu around people who WK her, while when it comes to others she ends up liking like a huge asshole. Especially if you are a person who is not fake and better than them, starts nitpicking and arguing over nothing, calling names and getting offended because UWU YOUR OPINION IS WRONG. Meanwhile all she does is misunderstands everyone w/o respecting their opinion, acts like shes hot shit /etc. Basically, its obvious how much i am annoyed of her. And tonight i wake up to her, whining on twitter for her WKs because she got called out on curiouscat. She decided to answer in a cringe-y way: gone full 'uwu instagram baddie, uwu so baddie just like Ariana', saying that she doesn't care while crying on her private twitter. I am so, so happy about it! Even though I do kinda feel bad about her but knowing all the shit she's been doing she deserves such treatment. She has done alot of stupid stuff before, not just cringe behaviour but that would take me awhile to write.

Omg okay so I met this guy about a month/two months ago and we have fallen instantly in love with each other and the feelings somehow grow every day. Both of us are kinda freaked out about it and so scared to trust each other because we've both been physically and emotionally hurt in the past by abusive exes and all that shit but it's a mutual feeling of "fuck it, I'm going to trust ONE LAST TIME" and it's working out so well for both of us.
He's a perfect blend of dork and normie, he's so intelligent and works in the STEM fields but tonight while we were talking he started asking questions about Lolita fashion (I wear it sometimes) and he got SO into it! Kept sending me photos of coords and asking me what was good and what was bad. He didn't get it at first but it was so sweet that he was trying and making an effort, then suddenly out of nowhere he was sending me photos of amazing coords and couples matching and just started finding all this Jfashion by himself and sent me an 831acre photo and said "omg can we do this" and wtf this isn't supposed to happen. He's perfect and adorable. I'm so happy guys, I didn't think I'd find love like this but it's more than anything I've ever felt before for anyone. As soon as I met him everyone else just faded away and I had eyes for no one but him and that has never happened to me before. I thought I was poly and romantically detached as a person and thought that's just who I was but when he entered my life, everything changed.

I had to ask because most women I've seen who have BIG hips got them not just through genetic giftedness but working out too. Many of the women I've seen online who are 40" hips to 27" waist sort of proportions work out a lot
I'm sure it feels great being thinner but I hope you get better anon!
My waist/hip ratio is closer to a ten inch difference so I'm proud of it since it's in that golden zone, but yours is way more enviable to me. I'm kind of up my ass about my body image lately so to counteract I'll pop in with my brags…

Recognising my hunger cues and becoming more aware definitely helped. If I was craving something, I’d think ‘Would I eat an apple?’. If the answer is no, then I’m not hungry. If the answer is yes, then I eat an apple. (I always have one on me)
This doesn’t sound that effective but it really helped me to differentiate between real hunger, and the urge to eat out of boredom or habit.

I eat small portions, but try to eat high protein foods to keep myself feeling fuller, which helps to prevent binging later on. I also eat only two meals a day, and barely snack (because I never really need to).

When it comes to satisfying cravings, I don’t have cheat days, I have cheat meals. I’ve noticed that cheat days completely throw me off schedule and can impact the rest of my week, whereas having just one cheat meal allows me to get back on track very quickly. Also, making lower calorie versions of the food in craving is really cool too. Sometimes I make ‘pizza’ and swap the traditional base for a tortilla (or make mini rice cake pizzas). It’s not the same of course, but it does help.

I’ve been doing stuff like this for the past 6 months and I’ve lost 22.5kg (50lbs). However since my tdee is smaller than it was, it’s getting harder to lose more, but nowadays I do more low calorie swaps to keep myself under

I got hired as an intern at a really big tech company in San Francisco that gets thousands of applications every year. For my second interview, I was given a network to troubleshoot and had to find out what the problems were. I was accidentally given the full-time interview instead of the intern one (he was supposed to give me more hints/point me in the right direction if I was stuck), but I was told that I had scored the highest out of anyone who had ever done that interview before. Shit makes me feel great.

I switched over to carbonated water and it made such a huge difference in my life. My favourite part of soda is the carbonation, so switching over to water was easy enough for me. Perrier also has fruity flavoured carbonated water that's good for sugar cravings. The strawberry flavoured one is so good.

I felt so used when I was with him (emotionally and physically). I won't go into detail because it sucks, but yeah he was an asshole. I felt sooo crazy and worthless for over 2 years.
feels good that I'm currently dating straight up husband material! My SO proved to me me that I CAN be in a loving and mutually respectful relationship, despite my depression/anxiety. God, he does the most random and kindest shit, totally unprompted. Last week I mentioned I was stressed out, so he left chocolate w/ an "I love you" note on my desk before I woke up. He regularly tells me how much he appreciates me and lists new reasons each time. He really puts in the work to make sure I believe in his love, and never ever makes me feel bad for having severe depression/anxiety.

One thing I noticed early on is that they asked me questions I wouldn't know how to answer to see how I'd respond. I'm not sure if this is a common practice in the industry, but it kind of makes sense I guess? Like, they want to avoid hiring someone that's going to bullshit constantly. In my first phone interview they asked me 3 fairly easy questions about stuff I'd definitely know, and my last question was about something I've never heard about. I answered truthfully by saying "I don't know how to answer that, sorry", and apparently that was the right answer. This isn't specific to IT, but lots of people try to weasel their way into jobs they are super underqualified for. So don't apply for jobs that require you to be really familiar with Linux unless you actually know your way around it, that kind of stuff.

Be friendly and courteous (obviously), don't try to be a douche and one-up the interviewer by acting like you know more than they do (yes, I know a person that has done this). If your interview process was like mine, your first few will be with people who aren't as IT-inclined, but the later ones will be with people who are actually technicains themselves. So later on it becomes a lot easier to explain specific details about technical stuff you're good at without feeling like you're confusing the HR rep you started your interview process with. I can't think of any more advice, just be yourself and don't be afraid to ask questions.

>Tech in CA are desperate for diversity hires and they will take nearly any female that applies.
I am aware of this. My field specifically has very few women in it. Not only that, but you have to be incredibly autistic to become even remotely competent in it, male or female. In my university program, there's maybe 15 people left out of the 100 in first year. I was hired for a position that requires extremely specific know-how in a very specific field of tech. I didn't go through 5 interviews only to be hired because I'm female.

>Lots of turnover for them so we need to keep replacing.

It's a 4 month internship, not a full-time position.

>Most of these people are given mindless tasks, and have no chance for a real career.

I've worked as a sysadmin twice now, and I haven't even graduated yet. There are people in my program that are completely fucked because they genuinely do not care about becoming knowledgeable in their intended field of work. I've gone out of my way to learn about stuff because I like it so much. Once I've completed my internship, I'll be able to put a reputable company's name on my resume next to my last 2 jobs as a sysadmin at another reputable institution.

also, i started treating my CPTSD and it's been working beautifully. it's challenging but i'm learning how to self soothe and grow my confidence. i feel beautiful, healthy, smart, and worthy. i'm finally blossoming into the woman i want to be, and i'm the one to thank for it.

I grew up in a religious, abusive household where I was not allowed to leave or even have hobbies, they wouldn't even let me learn to drive. My parents wanted me to be stereotypically feminine and even frequently brought it to my attention they wanted me in an arranged marriage. Not that long ago, I was ready to take my own life, I felt I was too dumb and trapped to make anything of it. My parents never supported me in going to therapy before adulthood, my dad said mental illnesses were made up to sell medication, but I'm finally going and found a medication that works after over a year of trying.

I got my driver's license a while back, saved up some money to go to college, quit my part time job, and I'm starting med school next month. It's just a technical program, but I'll be able to get full time work and make significantly more than before. Then I can go back for a degree in cosmology, which has always been a dream of mine. My father was the first person in the family to graduate high school. I'm the first woman; I'll also be the first to go to college. All of my family lived in cabins or trailers, many struggle with sever mental illness and drug addiction. My mom did heroin, and my dad did speed. My mother is borderline, father a narcissist; their parents were abusive to them as well and you can trace the abuse back for generations. Somehow this abomination of a line produced someone who aspires to be a physicist.

I came out to of the closet my mother as well. Years ago, I hinted at my orientation, but she told me that I'm just consuming too much media and that I'll change. Both of my parents frequently made remarks on homosexuality and the LGBT community, my father stating it was unnatural and they'll burn in hell, my mother stating they were disgusting. She used to taunt gay couples in public. I came out a few days ago, years later, and she just sat there quietly and pondered what I said, then she said "You are what you are." instead of offering to help me find a husband like usual. I'm just so fucking happy about that.

thank you anons! i count calories/CICO, its intimidating at first but actually really easy after the first month. for the first two weeks i just ate like usual but counted calories to know exactly why i was overweight and get used to counting them. i also started reducing my sugar in tea and coffee and stopped drinking soda as much. i started off drinking milk tea with 2 or more teaspoons of sugar and coffee with four sugars and about 4 litres or more of soda a week.
now after weight loss i drink coffee with no sugar and tea without sugar or milk and i hate soda.
i count my macros now as well and the ratio is 40% protein, 40% carbs and 20% fat for whatever amount of calories. so the grams will vary with calorie changes based on weight loss.
hope this helps anons :)

a year after leaving an extremely abusive relationship and thinking i was crazy/broken and how no one will ever be able to love me, i am now with such a sweet man and madly in love. he is hot, funny, charming, very rich, huge cock, still young… it’s like a dream? he’s scandiavian so he gets lots of paid holidays and takes me traveling around the world and i dont gotta pay a dime (i still do because it makes him happy when i show that i can be independent too). he isn’t afraid of talking about stuff like marriage/kids/moving in.. also we never fight, he once got a slight attitude with me and i just ignored him so as to avoid conflict and he genuinely apologized after like 20 minutes and i was like whaaaat men are capable of this?? such a breath of fresh air and it’s nice to finally feel like i’m not insane after so many years of gaslighting and zero self esteem. the only minus is that he’s extremely wealthy and it makes me uncomfortable as i’m not used to it, but what a sweet problem to have huh

All my weight went to my tits and ass (32B to 34F) and even though my gut is a bit soft now, I'm in love with my new curvy figure and I've gotten tons of attention from people!

Pretty sure I have minimal/none at all of body odor. I have dry earwax and just found out the gene that is responsible for dry ear wax also is responsible for minimal body odor. I’ve been trying to smell myself for years and have even used the same sports bra for over a week, sweating intensely in it, and after I let it sit for a day or two I still don’t smell much at all even with a big whiff of it in my face. It’s actually sort of a sweet smell, reminds me of plums. I think I got the short end of the stick with some of my genes, but the good ones I got, I’m really happy with (I’d consider my other good one having no armpit hair).

I’d give up deodorant but I don’t like the sticky feeling under my arms when I sweat so I’ll keep using it.

i took online certification- which i did have to pay and had saved up aggressively for for a year. but you can usually research and find free/cheap workshops

sign up for this https://www.dailyui.co/

you can get started designing with free apps

figma - https://www.figma.com/
adobe xd - https://www.adobe.com/products/xd.html

post your stuff on
dribbble - https://dribbble.com/
behance - https://www.behance.net/

submit anything that gets good feedback to design instagrams

i learned some coding as well which you don't need to sign a course. look for beginners tutorials. can also learn and get started on for free with visual studio code.

also start thinking of companies whose stuff you like, for example maybe you really like google. then search "designer at google" and follow everyone on their twitter, insta and dribbble/behance. follow people they talk to. start engaging with their tweets about design. asking questions and stuff design. don't be intimidated if they are rich or from ivy league schools- a lot of them are which is scary but some of those same people kinda like the idea of giving someone a chance.

oh i subscribed to "girls who code" and a couple other similar newsletters. they have free events on zoom all the time where you can network.

it has been almost a full year of doing this:
1. design something new every day(even if it's just like… a button) and share it
2. do a tutorial/course once a week at least
3. orbit designers online every day (many of them will ignore you at first you and a few times i got blocked, just can't worry about being annoying
4. attend at least one virtual event a month

i took a month off from doing this in december because i was feeling so defeated and depressed but got back into it this month and started seeing opportunities for the first time.

Contract to hire. It's a 6mo contract which means I'm about to have more money than I've ever had in my life. A salaried position would be less, but the good news is that contractors are in higher demand right now since there's more risk + cost associated with a FT hire.

Job is full remote- they are based in NYC. Founders are from SF.

I have another small-scale project on the books. But once I have that experience under my belt and publish my work, it will be easier to get people to talk to me.

Tech is changing lives right now. So

Often even after years of giving and hoping for change. You actually did that, though. I can't stress how rare that is and it's why the best advice is to never date someone based on what you hope for them compared to how they are in the present.

I have a natural thigh gap and I love it. Leggings and tight jeans look so good. I just lost a lot of weight and I'm at the lowest weight I've ever been.
I'd also have to lose 13 more pounds to be considered underweight by the new BMI calculator, so I'm definitely not ana-chan territory.

Recently life has been coming together for me - my skins cleared up and the final acne scars are gone. Now I don't need to wear makeup, I naturally don't have dark circles so I can go sans concealer even. I've been getting compliments on my skin in addition to the generic 'you're so pretty!' comments I get sometimes, but the skin thing is what I'm most proud of - it took 5 dermatologist visits and 6 months to completely fix.

I went into a 6 figure software engineering job right after uni, and recently bought new a car in cash. I'm saving 3x more money than I spend and my investment portfolio is up 50% in the past year. I have more money than I know what to do with, not enough to buy a house or anything but it's more disposable income than I thought I would ever have. I'm going out with my friends regularly, I've caught up with friends I haven't seen in years who make plans to see me again immediately, and my social life is better than ever.

I'm also making good progress on my novel, recently got a personal style consultation and revamped my wardrobe, and am on track to getting promoted. My weight has stablised so now I can eat whatever I want and stay relatively the same size. My friends are pushing me to start dating but I want to enjoy this golden age by myself for a bit.

Life is good, for now at least.

Damn anon what are your secrets? Well done on having such a successful life.
>My friends are pushing me to start dating
Ha, yeah. Life is going awesome so now you need a scrote to fuck it all up. (Although if you're a lesbian, congratulations on that as well.) I'm glad you're planning to enjoy your time instead.

Thanks anon, for investing I went 40% ETFs and bluechips and 60% meme/speculation stocks. It's mostly luck and good timing at this point, I've had 2-3 that tripled in value which makes up the bulk of the growth.

And yeah I'm just happy doing what I want in my own time, working and seeing my friends. Don't need anyone fucking this up or diverting my energy away from me right now since I don't know how long it'll last lol

I work in big tech. If you're interesting in $$$ and want to work in software, I recommend you either go either to a trading company (like jane st, optiver, IMC), big tech or start up (though prepared to cover multiple roles). Those generally pay the best, and you being the money maker will be treated very well compared to other companies.

I read an anon's vent about their gym going issues due to corona and got a strong desire to gloat so here I am.
My neigborhood used the time since the pandemic started to build outdoor gyms in parks. We now have awesome big gyms free of charge in every block, they're being well kept, and it's so much more enjoyable than working out in an indoor gym.
I really chose well when I chose this part of city to live in, other municipalities don't give half a shit for improving their citizens' quality of life, they just pocket the money.

Outdoor gyms are a fun warmup but they're not a real gym substitute because without any weights it's not an exercise that would help with anything past certain level, unfortunately. And they cant put weights there because people would injure themselves.

I feel like no matter what I do or attempt, everything ends up working out really well for me. It's like I put everything in my luck stat upon creation. I'm an incredibly optimistic person, and I wonder if I'm like that because everything turns out fine or if everything turns out fine because I'm so optimistic about everything lol.

I'm riddled with self-esteem issues but at least I'm effortlessly decently attractive, I'm so glad I'm not weighted down by my appearance, I would have probably killed myself a long time ago.
