Acne Help

Hi /adv/, I was hoping to get some advice on minor acne problems in adults? I just turned 24 and I'm still dealing with pimples. I get some that are really deep under the skin. I also get these tiny bumps that almost look like pimples but I guess they aren't? They don't have a white or black head, and when I squeeze them it's like hardened pus or something? Not like a normal pimple. Also, on my right cheek I have a group of visible pores that, if even only lightly pressed on, produce lots of pus. The area does feel uneven to the touch, but I can't even see it when I look in the mirror. Sorry I know all this sounds really gross, I don't know how else to word it. Anyways, what I'd like to ask is what is going on with my face? Is it hormonal? I do take birth control and I do see an influx in problems when I'm on my period. I eat healthy, cook all my food at home, and I do at least 30 minutes of excerise a day. I also wash my face twice a day, once with just water in the morning, and another at night with a cleanser and my clairisonic mia 2. Oh and I also regularly change my pillow cases. Other people should post their acne-related questions, if they want.

Hello /adv/, got some issues with housing at uni. >Sublease from a friend of mine for summer >He decides to make it under the table rather than official, meaning my name is never on the lease >Move out yesterday morning >Clean out all of my shit but leave some shampoo, a towel, a bottle cap, a drawstring baggy (small), and empty plastic bags. The floor also needs some vacuuming. >Dude is expected to return last night or this morning >Had some complications but managed to renew his lease, meaning he was staying there another semester >Get a message from his roommate that the maintenance checked the room and reported it a mess and were charging money per each article found in the room/bathroom (Refer to list above) >Roommate is accusing me of being a dick for not making it spotless (I don't disagree but I had to move out all of my shit and they didn't lift a finger to help me down 3 flights of stairs with everything) in Florida Summer >They have yet to give us an estimate Knowing these fuckers, it's going to be hundreds of dollars. Thing is, dude renewed his lease, so the maintenance should never have even been in the room since he never checked out. The problem is, the dudes are super beta and will likely never stand up properly to the admins of the building. Legally, I'm not required to pay but ethically it's the right thing to do if he's charged. Likewise, because he wasn't moving out, the rules for left behind articles don't apply but someone from maintenance didn't get the memo. What do you do here, anons?

Almost got beaten up because... 10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Approx 24 hours ago i was attacked by some swedes in Copenhagen because i did not agree that a norwegian political party was racist. They followed me to a busstop and warned me that i was no longer welcome in Norrebro. Now i am shaken up, unable to sleep and thinking about all the time. The situation slips my mind maybe a minute each hour before i think about again. Can anyone recommend tips or advice on what to do to let this go?

This fingernail has been dead for about 20 years, but keeps trying to grow back on top. It's really annoying, is there a medical procedure that can sort this out? It doesn't hurt but it's pretty bothersome sometimes. Thanks

Rent

Hey there, I just have a quick question. I am moving into a new townhome with two roommates. I am providing all of the furniture that will be in the living room, kitchen, dining room, and bathroom (since I am the only one who had furniture from my previous place). Is it fair for me to ask to have the biggest room without having to pay more?

Does politeness alienate people?

Does politeness alienate... 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I have noticed that when I speak to people, it seems to make them uncomfortable. I still live near the city where my childhood was spent, but my verbal mannerisms have become somewhat unique. Residents of my hometown frequently ask me "Where are you from?" I have not affected a foreign accent. I enunciate carefully and avoid contractions. These are simply things I was taught to do, as a child. It does not bother me that people speak nonchalantly to me, but I do not like to respond in the same fashion. I am employed in customer service. It is important for people to understand me when I speak to them. People seem to be more relaxed when they speak to my coworkers. My coworkers seem less professional and less courteous. They rarely say "Would you please..." or "thank you for..." These are things I was taught as a child. I internalized them. I sometimes feel as though I'm the only one who watched Mister Rogers when I was young.

hey /adv/ long time lurker... 10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
hey /adv/ long time lurker here. wall of text inc. so, there's this girl I've been into for a while. I'm good friends with her roommate, which is how i met her. we have a few classes together so we see each other pretty much every day. we flirt a lot and get on really well, but for the most part i thought she was completely out of my league. Two weeks ago we had a party at her dorm and tl;dr we ended up fucking (she initiated it). it was different to other one nights stands I've had, mainly because we lay in bed until like midday talking and laughing and whatever. there was no awkward vibe between us immediately after or ever since or anything which made me really happy. i was really intent on asking her out on a date, but i never got around to it/never got the right moment /i'm too beta. A few nights ago there was another party at a mutual friends dorm and we started making out there. we started walking back to our dorms together and we had a half drunk discussion about what everything means. basically she sad >i know you're into me >you're probably more emotionally involved in this than i am, anon >i don't really know what i want at the moment >i don't want to hurt your feelings i said very little the whole time but made a point in saying that i was really interested in her and said she wouldn't hurt my feelings (totally a lie) regardless of that conversation >we immediately went back to hers and ended up fucking again it really doesn't feel like one night stands, because she's really affectionate and it's not like other experiences I've had. I was thinking about completely disregarding what she said and asking her out anyway, but i don't want to blow it. p.s. she's not a slut, i'm the second guy she's slept with (plus her bj technique is really bad so she's obviously inexperienced) So /adv/ what do you think? am i just a chad to her or is she playing some shitty hard to get game or does she simply not know? what the actual fuck do i do thx, anon xoxox

>girlfriend likes looking at pictjres of handsome guys on the internet >her and her gay male friend send pictjres of half naked muscly guys to each other on their social media >tells me she wants to travel to X country so she can see the handsome guys etc and that her heart will be racing >sometimes she shows me pictures of guys she finds handsome >if I get bothered by it she says she has no freedom and that I am too jealous and controlling etc I dont even look at other girls, I just dont give a fuck when I have a girlfriend, I find it shallow and immature >decide to send her a picture of a girl I think is pretty >keep it relatively tame but say "I think this girl is pretty" Pic related >she tells me she doesn't think she is pretty >told me it made her a bit jealous Great success? Petty?.. Maybe.. I am going to claim it as a victory for myself though.

I see two possible futures in... 3 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
I see two possible futures in my life. 1) Finish film school, work hard to follow my dreams and reap the benefits. 2) Move out of parents, drop everything and live in shithole to escape from the domestic 1984 that is my homelife. Now, I'm strongly leaning towards the 1st option because I do want to tell stories and I enjoy filmmaking in most of it's aspects, but I can still fail and it would have been all for nothing. I fear that I do not have the creativity or even the competence to do this. The second option grants me freedom, to do the most basic of things I want to. My parents are unbelivably strict with me, I dont go to parties or stay out for weekends at a time, hell, I even get yelled at for basic shit (not tying my laces properly) and it's killing me inside. I just want to drop everything and do the little things that make me happy, but I know that following my dream could give me a life that I could never imagine. What should I do?

I had a pretty stressful summer. There was some problems with my apartment, we screwed up some papers, some contracts, and were almost thrown out. My girlfriend screwed up some details on the papers. I got a call from the apartment company that I was going to be thrown out in 14 days. At this point my girlfriend was in another city working. The entire month I had to constantly do calls, send mails, go to the office of the apartment people until I had finally convinced them to let us keep the apartment, in return for me getting some specific forms and documents within a time limit, which was extremely stressful. Bare made it with only 1 hour left. Now we can finally keep our apartment. This all took a month. At the end they also told me that it was my girlfriend who screwed up some details, and that she should have known. During this time I could not get a hold of my girlfriend at all, during this month. Finally she calls me, when I'm starting to contemplate if I should put her stuff in storage, crying and saying she is sorry that she didnt call me and that she was scared I would be mad at her, and that she knew she had fucked up the papers. If we had been unlucky I would have had to move all our stuff out and find a new apartment while she wasnt even in town. Only reason she didnt return my calls was that she was scared and embarassed because she had fucked up. Still, I feel this was a very irresponsible behaviour from my girlfriend. An entire month without returning my calls, when she would have been a big help, especially considering I didnt know it was her fuckup and the details of it. I really love her, but this was just a really weird think to do and not to say stupid. I'll obviously stay with her, wouldnt be much of a relationship if I let this ruin it, but I still need your opinion on this. I have a feeling that she'll never become any "better" at these basic social responsibilites.
