My sixteen year old has been asleep for over 40 hours.

However, I left a snack cake on his desk and it's gone now, though he didn't come out of his room.

He abandoned her as an infant, and has repeatedly threatened to kidnap her, and even threatened to kill her once. Should I get a lawyer or wait and see whether he's willing to push the matter? I do not have any documentation of his threats.


Happy New year.....

My manager admitted to me yesterday that she looked at my social media and I don’t know how I feel about it.

If you put it on the internet, it isn't spying, it's public.

Maybe she wants to be your friend.

Are people inherently good or evil?

Inherently good, though selfish. We learn to be both better good, and also evil.

An infant is innocent, like an animal. He knows only his own need to survive, not malice nor compassion.

Our life experiences teach us to care about others, but they also teach us how to use others to our own gain.

i hate humanity

Humans are the best and the worst of creatures. Recognizing the evil is only the start. After that you have to find the good, and if you can't find it you have to create it.

finally in need to ask for some real help about this situation im in.

A job isn't for the benefit of the worker, so it's unlikely that the company will be interested in fixing your problem. Suck it up for a little while longer while you search for another, better job.

Unless you really love this one, in which case you should find a way to get the obnoxious meddler fired.

An astrophysicist whose philosophical books I enjoy wrote about the difficulties surviving civilization. He theorizes that it might be quite rare for a species to survive its own technological advancement, due to ever-increasing energy demand.

I was born and raised in the same state my entire life.

I can handle any weather - in VA, we experience every single season. It’s also ridiculously humid.

Nicest weather I've ever lived in was southwestern VA. I lived in Blacksburg (nice college town), Christiansburg (very quiet, but near stuff to do), and Roanoke (pretty nice if you're in a nice section of town). But that was over 10 years ago. I don't know what it's like now.

Honestly, I thought about near West Virginia (Shenandoah Valley area) but I think my husband really wants to do something different and I would like to as well.

West Virginia is beautiful, and a lovely place to visit, and cost of living is low, but the entire state suffers from poor economy, lack of good jobs, rampant drug and alcohol addictions and tragedies associated with that, and environmental abuses. Don't go live there unless you are prepared to accept these troubles, preferably including keeping a stockpile of clean water.

I grew up in WV, but have lived in quiet parts of VA almost all of my adult life.

Virginia is a slower paced state, except NoVA.

My suggestion is you rent a van and make a grand driving tour of the entire United States, then decide.
